Several citizens of Walhalla
wore awakened Tuesday morning by
tho loud report of an explosion, the
location of which was hard to dis
cover. It was not definitely known
by many, however, until 8 or it
o'clock where the explosion really
took place, though Sheriff John W.
Davis vas awakened shortly after
the loud report, a citizen of the com
munity making a hurried report that
the home of Mrs. M. A. Pool, who
lives about a mile west of town, had
been dynamited shortly before
o'clock. The motive that prompted
the dastardly deed is unknown, the
family rigidly holding to the story
that thoy know of no one who could
have committed the deed for revenge
or sinte. Just bow much dynamite
was used ls not known, hut a con
siderable hole was blown in the
ground under the house where the
charge lay. The explosive had been
placed under the parlor, about the
center of the room, which was badly
torn uii, the floor being torn up, walla
mutilated and furniture and pictures
broken and shattered. Had there
been people In the room it is hardly
possible that they would have es
caped alive. The whole affair is
veiled in mystery, though there are
slight clues that will doubtless even
tually lead to the guilty parties. The
ground was so dry owing to the con
tinued drought that it was Impossible
to do anything with tracking. Blood
hounds were sought at thc? poor farm,
but the only one in possession now
of the county wnp with the chain
gang. The Pool I a nilly had a nar
row escape from severe injury and
possible death. Mrs. Pool and her
daughters reside hy themselves.

H. GORDON LANGSTON DEAD.
Had Been in Poor Health for Several
There are many in Oconee who will ;
learn with deep regret of the passing
away of H. Gordon Langston, who
was well known all over Oconee and
in other counties as a man fearless
in the discharge of his duties, hon
est and honorable in his dealings
with his fellow men. Mr. Langston
passed to his reward last Wednesday
night about !? o'clock, after a brief
serious illness, though he had been in
failing health for several years. His
last illness commenced Monday
night before his death.
Mr. Langston was born in Plckens
county August L'S, IN'S, and in 187(5
was happily married to Miss Rebecca
Lntrokin. Funeral services were
held Friday morning at IO o'clock,
the interment following in Westview
Cemetery, the services being con
ducted by Dr. J. L. Stokes, of the
Methodist church, with which the
deceased had united about four years
We join with others In extending
to the bereaved ones sympathy In
their sorrow. Plain, unpretentious,
unobtrusive his later years giving
evidence of sound conversion and the
daily living of a thorough Christian
life-Gordon Langston made staunch
friends who will miss him and will
Jong remember him pleasantly.
We are in receipt of the following
short article, which speaks of tho de
ceased forcefully, giving a clearer
view of the inner life of Mr. Lang
li. Gordon Langston.
When I came to Hie Walhalla
Methodist church seven months ago.
one of the first to welcome nie was
that man who was everybody's
friend, H. Gordon Langston. On
every hand he was known as "Uncle
Gordon." Ile drew the little chil
dren to him as he hound tho older
ones by hooks of steel. Yet he was
not learned, nor rich, nor powerful.
He was loved for himself alone. His
was ever a friendly spirit; and by
grace he became "an Israelite indeed
in whom there was no guile."
On a trip together to Seneca, Bro.
Langston first opened his heart to
me, his pastor. He told me of his
late profession of religion. lt was
only four years ago. under the
preaching of Dr. S. li. Helle, of At
lanta, during the pastorate of Bro.
Drlggers, that he definitely gave his
heart and life to God. Many testify
of the wondrous change in his life
and the self-evidencing reality of his
religion, while he himself knew the
sweet witness of the Spirit, and con
scious communion with God.
Bro. Langston was one of nature's
noblemen. He was a "good man.
full of the Holy Ghost and of faith."
We miss him, but know where to
He was not quite 56 years of age.
He leaves a worthy widow, who was
Miss Rebecca Bntrekin; one son,
William W. Langston, of Enterprise,
Ala., and two daughters, Mrs. Frank
Morgan, of Walhalla, and Mrs. C. A.
Heck, of Dora, Ala. They have the
richest heritage in the memory of
this good man. J, L. Stokes.
