TO BE TRIED FOR HIS LIFE.
Mr. Nick Myers, formerly of thi
county, but who has for a number o
years been living in Florida, is to bf
tried for his life on the 1st of March
He has been accused of killing a mat
in Florida and is to be tried for tk
crime. Mr. Myers was a gallant Con
federate soldier and served during th(
war in Gen. Bratton's brigade. Hi
friends in Fairfield are fully convince<
of his innocence, and after hearing o:
the trouble that be is in some of hi
Winniboro friends have contribute4
money to help him out of his diffi
clty. All'of the money that is need
ed has not yet been collected, bu
after the facts have been brought t
the notice of the people others wil
probably come forward wih contri
btions. It is hoped that Mr. Myers
will be able to prove his innocence
and his friends who deeply sympathize
with him will await anxiously the
result of the trial.
