WE ONES RAY, JUNE 1, 11)1! I.
< 'ONOKATUIJATIONS IN ORDER.
Wo want to congratulate Walhalla
and community for having the best
ho ha ved hoy; and young men that
can be boasted of by any community
in any section. During the live days
of Chautauqua there was not, so far
?is we have heard of, even one inci
dent that occurred to mar a most,
pleasant and delightful occasion or
spoil for any one the enjoyment of
ll single feature id tho ideal program
of the entire live days. We are moro
than ordinarily pleased to bo able lo
make Hus assertion because Wal
halla is "our town" to a greater do
rree and to a fuller measure than
many might suspect.
Within tho recollection of Hie edi-!
tor of The Courier he has attended
some largo gatherings in somewhat
larger localities, and lie can truth
fully say that he has never Wintessod
more, admirable conduct, on tile in
side and on the outside, than has
characterized tho whole tone and
tenor of the 1921 Chautauqua season
hi 'Walhalla. Tho people have be
haved lil n most excellent manner
hy instinct and intuitively and ga:
Uiitously, The officers have been ob
Horvod to move about tho Chautau
qua premises with a degree of dig-j
tilly thal at once inspired confidence'
on the part of the public that all
would lie well, and an equal confi
dence on the part of any one-If
such an one were present-who may
have felt inclined to "break the rules
of decorum/' that no such procedure
would be tolerated for a moment.
Everything went ?off without a
marring word or act, so far as wo
were able to judge, and so far as we
have been able to hear.
We are glad to commend this ex
cellent spirit that has been so ad
mirably exemplified, lt ls a mighty
healthy sign. Wo feel prouder of
Walhalla than ever before. Walhalla'
Iso town to be proud of, and her peo
ple constitute in the aggregate a cit
izenship than which there is none
belter to he found.

-At tho trial held before Magis
trate P. Ans. Brown last Monday
Marvin Drowning, who had hoon ar
rested on suspicion as being connec
ted with the entry and robbery of
thc store of W. M. Murphrce, of tho
Oconee Creek section, Mr. drowning
was dismissed, thora being no evi
dence to hold him in connection and
nothing upon which even suspicion
could rest. In making mention of
the case last week we sLltod lhat
officers had traced steps from the
Murphrce store to the. home of Mar
vin Drowning, but we are informed
that this information was incorrect.
Mr. Murphrce. assisted by citizens
ot the community, wo are now in
formed, followed the tracks from
the stoiv lo within about three hun
dred yards of tho Browning home,
and when the officers arrived 'he
Drowning home was sea rob od, with

the Unding of only some loose, flour
in the Browning house. The acquit

to our informants, ls what every
body in the neighborhood expected.
Mr. Browning bears a good reputa

lived for several years.
-John Holden, of the Salem sec
tion of Oconee, was brought to Wal
halla the latter parts of last week for
medical and suigicai attention, he
having been shot and seriously hurt
about ten days ago. It was hard to
get doctors to bim for attention at
times needed, and hence the moving
of Ibo wounded man closer to the
doctors, lie was shot in the hip,
tho bullet ranging downward and
coining out In the fleshy part of tho
log. It is said that some time ago
Mr. Holden and W. H. Alexander,
a neighbor, had some trouble, and
it is thought that the shooting is tho
outcome of this trouble. Tho shoot
ing occurred at tho barn of Mr. Hol
den on the evening of May 18th,
Just before dark, as Mr. Holden was
engaged In feeding his stock. He
was shot from ambush, and lay, it
is said, In a serious condition for
quite a while before he was found
and taken to his homo. Alexander
was later arrested, charged with hav

for appearance for a lr>\ring before

-Several weeks ago a series of
robberies took place In tho Fair Play
section of Oconee county and just
across the river In Georgia. Thc
store house of Larry Marett at Fair

Knox's Bridge, were both broken in
to. On the Georgia side, between tho
river and Lavonla, Sim Thomas's
store was entered and quite a quan
tity of goods taken from each of
them. No trace of the thieves could
be found, but one day last week tho
officers were making search of the
premises of one Golden, Just abovo
Knox's Hrulge, and while thus en
gaged things began lo happen. They
discovered the man who had stolen
a Buick automobile from n party at
Newry some months ago and arrest
ed him on thal chaine. Ile then
"spilled the beans" on others of the
little party. In le s than 18 hours
the officers had (anded Matthew

and Otis Stnndrldge in the Oconeo
Jail. All of thom but Sheriff wero
found with stolen goods in their pos
session, and lt is understood* that
