colored, charged with shooting a

and Theo. David, colored, charg
ed with cutting 'and stabbing
with intent to kill. All other cases
are for minor offenses.
The grand jury recommended
that the justices of the peace he
more painstaking in accepting
affidavits, as many cases coming
from the justices of the peace
were of an insignificant nature.
They recommended that over
seers give more, or better attention
to public roads.
They also r~commended that the
vault in the clerk and recorder's
office be enlarged in order that it
may accommodate all of the public
records, as those in use nqw are too
small for the purpose.

SBefore buying anywhere else, oome
