INSTANTLY KILLED SUNDAY t

TRAGEDY ON THE STREETS
Believed to be Result of Some Person- t
al Difficulty Unknown
to the Public "
Hartsville, March 17.- Hartsville
was saddened and shocked today when
the news of an awful tragedy was
broken on the Sabbath stillness. Chief
of Police John 0. Folsom was shot and
instantly killed on the street near the
building in which is located the of
fice of the Pedigreed Seed Company.
The slayer, J. H. Gulledge, overseer of
the farms of J. L. Coker Co., made a
confession and surrendered himself in
to the hands of the authorities, and
was taken to Darlington and turned
over to Sheriff Register.
The killing occurred between 9:30
and 10 o'clock this morning and, as
there is little passing on Sunday on
the street on which the tragedy oc
curred, nothing is known as to what
happened or what words were passed
between the two ml-m prior to the
Took Automobile Ride
it appears that Mr. Gulledge met
up with Chief Folsom at the fice de
partment headquarters and that the
two rode off together in the chief's
car. Parties had seen them - passing
just a few minutes prior to the kill
ing. Some personal trouble, unknown
to the public, it is thought, must be
.responsible for the difficulty.
The body of Mr. Folsom was found
on the ground, face lown, by the au
tomobile. The door of the car was
open. It is not stated whether the
fatal shots were fired while Mr. Fol
som was at his steering wheel or as
he was alighting from the car. Par
ties hearing the shots, it is claimed,
stated that there were four shots fired
at close range. On going to the scene
they found life extinct.
The body was removed to within
the Pedigreed Seed Company's build.
ing and the inquest was held, begin
ning at 12:30.
Mr. Folsom was elected chief of po
lice several ronths ago, to succeed R.
H. Kirkpatrick, deceased, and was
generally liked. Mr. Gulledge came
here a few years ago from Pageland
and has been employed by J. L. Coker
& Co. as an overseer, under C. H. El
lis, general superintend:mnt of farms.
On the removal of Mr. Ellis to Geor
gia Mr. Gulledge had his responsibili
ties increased. le was quiet and well
liked by his employers. The tragedy is
much deplored. The (lead man leaves

Gulledge has a wife and three small

Modern methods of poultry housing

The system of tight, warm houses,
once very popular, was based upon t he
idea that to have lhens lay in cold

wvhere water wvould never freeze. Tlhe
methodls of housing now most wvidely
