GEO W. TIDWELL
GIVEN SEVEN YEARS
Clinton Man Found Guilty of Man.
slaughter and Sentenced to Seven
Years In Penitentiary. Appeal to
Greenville, Sept. 4.--George W.
Tidwell, aged 53, was found guilty of
manslaughter today after the jury
had deliberated nearly 24 hours and
was recommended to the mercy of
the court. Judge Prince thereupon
sentenced Tidwell, who, on March 12,
1914, killed Rt. Emmett Walker, to
serve seven years in the State peni
tentiary or upon the public works of
Greenville, the prisoner being left
free to take his choice.
The verdict was announced by the
Jury upon the convening of court this
morning. The 12 men had been out
since 10:30 Friday morning. It is
sidd that until the last few minutes
six of the Jurors hold out for acquit
This was the second time Tidwell
has been tried. In May, 1911, lie was
tried and sentenced to 12 years. His
sentence was <:ubsequently reduced
to seven years by the governor.
Counsel for Tidwell announced that
an appeal would be taken. Judge
Price overruled the motion for a new
trial. lie admitted Tidwell to ball
in the suni of $5,000, pending the
nexit session of the supreme court.
One of the grounds for appeal will
be the allegation that some one spoke
to the jury as they were going into
a hotel for supper. Jurors admitted
hearing a remark against Tidwell,
blut say that they paid no attention to
it. Still another point is the allega
tion that Tidwell could not be legally
tried for murder, Inasmuch as his
sentence had been commuted. Coun
-el contend hlie should have been
tried for manslaughter.

Tendency to Exaggerate.
'Ile fisherman is not the only fellow
who is inclined to exaggerate. It
sen's to be inherent in the race, and
whether one is reporting the length of
a inake or the amount of money that
he made in a bank deal, the chances
are the story would have to be tonted
down and a portion of it eliminated be
fore it would tally with the truth.
Most of the exaggerations are harm
less, anyway. It really doesn't make
any difference whether the fish was
two feet long, or only a foot; it is im
material, so far as the rest of the
world is concerned, whether you made
a hundred thousand dollars, or only
half that amount. Language is only to
give one general ideas anyway-the
essential thing Is that there was a fish,
or a profit hi the deal. The lives of
most of us are only exaggerated
egotism; we do not amount to half as
much as we imagino.-Columbus Dis
