ho for several years practiced law in

win the favorable comments of the

successful career. The following is
.ken from the Constitution of the 3rd:
Mrs. Capitola Woods, who has been
ied on the charge of lunacy. was
ursdav vindicated by a jury in Judge
'ilkinson's court. Thi; case has
'eated more interest than any case of
is nature ever nad in this city. Mrs.
oods statement to the jury was ten
)i.rs long. breaking all previous
cords in thnt respect.
M.\rs. woed was represented by two
tlanta's leading young attorneys.

The jury who tried her make up a

to M\rs. Wood. The seemed indig
tt at the idea of the prosecutor aip
aling the case, as they appear to be
eve that this woman has been grosslv
istreated in the past.
There is to be another hearing before
dge Wilkinson this morning on aip
tal, which may be good law, but to 'a
rman it looks very much like trying
use the courts to legalize an out
geous wrong on a helpless woman.
te was tried before twelve good and
mest imett, who after ?~ve days patient
Jring, decided she was sane. Not
ithstanding the case was pushed by
me of the foremost lawyers of the
ate. If we are going to over-ride
rdics of juries with quibbles, then
man is t'afe. All you have to do is
get some one to miake an aftidavit.
d then the burden of proof is on the
~fendants, and not on the State.

Come Balk Home.
To the People of the South:
It Is up to Vou to settIe the question
of bringin people to cultivate the mil
lions of idle acres in the South. Listen:
The Wes:ern railroads are constantly
working to draw away our people: to
take their fares and have them produce
traflic. One of them is calling on the
people of a Western State to "write to
every one you know in the East' and
try to induce them to came West. Now
let us go them one better, and write to
every one you know in the West and
try to get them to come "back home"
for most, of them are Southerners and
under present conditions can do better
in the South than anywhere else in the
world. Do not only ask your own friends
and relatives to come "back home," but
urge them to bring along every good
man and woman they can find. Ask
the railroads and boards of trade to send
thetm literature. All you need to do is
to give the names of people you think
would make good Southern citizens.
and the rilroads will send them just
the kind of invitation and literature
Ineeded to bring them "back home."
The Western railroads know it takes
people to build up a country, but let us
compel them to look elsewhere to get
them. The South has gone out of the
emigration business. Let us keep our
own and get back our own.

Of Interest to Teachers and Trustees.
The State Teachers' Association
meets in Columbia March 23rd-2)5th, in
clusive. Rtequests have been maae by
the State authorities that the trustees
throughout the State permit their
teachers to attend, giving them the two
school days on full pay. These associa
tion meetinas afford splendid oppor.
tunities for teachers to meet each other,
and to become better acquainted with
the various problems that affect the line
of work in which they are engaged
This contact brightens them and gives
renewed energy and determination to
do more and better work when they
return to their various positions. I
hereby extend the request to the trus
tees throughout the county to permit
their teachers this privilege. I also
appeal to every white teacher to take
up this matter with your board and thus
Iavatil yourselves of the advantages of
this opportunity, feeling sure you and
Ithe community you serve will be more
than repaid for the loss of time.

one day when he entered the sacred

he learned that he had been there for
several months. The great monarch
asked him why his faith was so weak
that his sight had not been restored

from A frica found their way to Augusta,
Georgia. They were taken in at Paine

charge of Miss E.lien Young. the Hamp

Woman's Home Department at that
school. Sjhe taught andl helped the- boy,
in every possible way. (e of thien
contracted tubercul:sis and died. The
other has returned to Africa as a sis
sionary--himself a home missionary,and
prepared for service by our home mis

MNiss Young from Umgeni Mission Sta

surprised to get this letter from me
