A Gard to the Public.
To tho Citizens of Oconee:
Tho recent doath of Mr. Sanders,
Oconee's Supervisor-oloct, necessi- ,
tates tho election of a successor on ,
tho 20th instant, as announced by the
County Democratic Chairman. At
tho solicitation of friends residing ,
in every section of the county, I havo, j
after careful consideration of the du
ties and requirements essential to an
intelligent, efficient nnd progruBsivc
administration of the office, reached
tho conclusion that my experlonco In '
life iltH and qualities me, by giving
the Job all my time, to discharge the
duties of the office of Supervisor In ?
maimer fully as acceptable to the
public as any, Supervisor tho county
has ever had; and upon this founda
tion I 'hereby announce my candidacy
for tho office of County Supervisor
of Oconee county, subject to tho rules
of the Democratic party. If olocted,
I pledge you my word of honor that
I will devoto al)?itt myittn^.^fijAi^
to the duties of the office hud suPSrV
vise every piece of work coming un
der my control and supervision, and
see that every dollar of county funds
is honestly and economically ex
pended, consistent with permanent
improvement on our location and up
keep of public roads and bridges.
I reside near tho county seat, eas
ily in touch by mail or in person,with
every section of tho county. My ex
perience in handling labor and in op
erating machinery, and tho heavy
uses of roads in hauling lumber over
tho same for a life-time, peculiarly
flt me, I believe, to handle tho chain
gang and bridge building, which are
BO essential in the building nnd keep
ing up of good roads, which In this
day are so strongly demanded by tho
public. And doing this, I will again
pledge you mv word of honor that in
tho performance ot Ibis duty, I shall
not make "favorites" or "pets" of
sections of the county to C'o neglect
of others; but will, by equal and ex
?act rights to all and special lavors to
none, give to the people of Oconee
county the best roads that tho money
appropriated can build and maintain.
Thanking you for your influence
and support, I am,
Yours for better Roads,
(adv.) J. C. Shockley.

Glenn Alexander LOSCH Life ns Result
of Accident Near Cutcochee.
.Glenn Alexander, Joe and Duffy
Tow, Frank Taylor and Hugh 'Elcain,
all of Oconee, were In an automobile
wreck near tho Catcechce Mills, in
Pickons county, last Sunday. As a
result of the accident Glenn Alexan
der died Monday evening about 3
o'clock at tho homo of a citizen of
tho neighborhood in which tho acci
dent occurred. No minute particu
lars were obtainable by us as to tho
causo of the wreck, but our Inform
ant stated that lt was ascertained
that at least some of tho members
of tho party of five young men were
drinking. Tho five young men were
all residents of Oconeo.
Glenn Alexander, who lost his
lifo, resided in tho Lay's Mill sec
tion. Ho ls survived by a wife and
two children.
Tho two Tow youths are residents
of tho Bethel section.
Hugh Elcain resides, wo-aro in
formed, in the Flat Shoal community.
Frank Taylor's placo of residence
was not known to our Informant,
who had been in Pickons county, and
saw the body of Alexander after he
had dlod. Hp stated also that Frank
Taylor's condition was regarded as
very sorious indeed, but that he had
boen taken to his homo. Taylor, it
is said, was driving the car at the
time of the accident. Tho car waa
making fast time, ran into a ditch or
gully and turned over twice before
tho mechanism was entirely put out
of commission and tho body of the
car brought to a standstill. All of
tho members of the party were more
or less Injured, but lt is understood
that the two Tow young men and
Elcain are not considered to be very
seriously Injured.

for us when wo cannot got out of the
camp-tho comforting talks, ontlroly
without propaganda-tho free giving
of all these things has won the re
