Blows Head Off With Dynamite. Horrible
Death By Own Hand. Resident Of
Southeastern Part Of County.
Edmund Parktr who resided on the
road leading from Dripping Springs to
Cartersville in the extreme southeastern
part of the county met death by his
own hand in a horrible manner on Tues
day morning. 'Parker arose from the
breakfast table and went to the barn;
the family were alarmed in a few
minutes by a shot and upon going to the
barn found Parkers body with the head
completely torn from the body and
scattered in atoms about the barn, and
his left shoulder nearly blown off; an
immense hole in the grown marked the
scene of the tragedy, and from the
surroundings it is supposed that Parker
placed his head upon the ground and
lighted a stick of dynamite and placed
under his head. Mir! dynamite caps
and fuse were found in his pocket.
Coroner Jones went to the scene of
the tragedy Tuesday afternoon and
rendered a verdict of death by his own
hand from dynamite. Parker had been
away from home working onaiailroad,
and had only returned a few days
previous to his death. He attempted
suicide three years ago when he resided
in Indiana by cutting his throat He is
survived by a wife and five children.
No reason can be assigned for the
rash deed, as Parker had been in good
health and apparently good spirits. He
was 47 yrars of age

The examinations for the first term
are over and I may say that, for the
most part, the work was very good.
There were a few failures, however,
brought on by lack of work. Whenre
poits are short it is time for an investi
gation. I am glad to say that one of
last year's Seniors leads his section at
Tulane University of New Orleans,
La., offers a ?100 scholarship to the
first honor graduate of this year's
clas?. I hope that some one will take
advantage of this offer from one of the
best universities in the South.
All primer pupils must start now if
at all this year, for every new primer
pupil starting late means a new class.
We will take none after entering the
new building, this session.

Cupid Gives A Suggestion To The Young
Young farmers complain that farm
girls are running away from the coun
try to marry city men. Many of them
seem to prefer lift in thf city with a
mechanic whose wages is $100 per
month or even less, than on a farm
with a man who owns a farm and owns
cattle and horses with long pedigrees.
There are grounds for these com
plaints, more's the pity, and it is time
the young marrying farmer should
give the situation serious study. We
confess we have not given the matter
that rareful thought it deserves, but
to one who has lived on a farm and has
seen farmers' wives and daughters
serve their term of dreadful drudgery
under the condition to which only the
poor in the cities are subjected, some
reasons why farm girls marry away
from home quickly suggest themselves.
Perhaps if young marrying farmers
would cut down their acreage and in
crease their household furnishings, pay
less for blooded bulls and more for
hired girls, build fewer wire fences
and more cement walks, cut down on
farm machinery and buy more washing
machines and gasoline ranges, build
bath rooms a3 well as silos and show a
real desire to make the work for women
on the farm easier and life more worth
the living, perhaps the tide of marry
ing farm girls would be changed.
By providing the right kind of a
home they will have less difficulty in
keeping the brightest and best young
girls in the country and spare them
selves the spectacle of city men carry
ing them off, leaving the undesirable
to become old maids or farmers' wives.
