; receiver, for Policeman K. H. Cousins

Mr. John H. Chappell states that his !
son killed a "sho' nuff" mad dog one |
: day last week. The dog came from I
j the direction of the city and after j
! stampeding the chickens he made a
i dive for some cattle, but fortunately j
there was a wire fence between, which |
his dogship in his madness failed to \
see. On failing to ram through the '

brought up his artillery and left the 1
enemy dead on the field.

Athenians from seeing through the j

has not yet been erected. Garmany j

and I.Mary Brown. Mt. Bethel by Miss .
Wallace and McCrary by Miss Dantzler.

with a streak of bad luck recently. I
Last week while in Columbia he drove '
his car against an old lady who was !
crossing the street. He threw on his j
brakes with such force that .his car'
was considerably damaged, but it saved j
the old lady from possible death. She
escaped with slight injuries. Mr. Liv|
