- The Gurney Manufacturing Co.
plant at Walhalla was closed down
?a:s? week, the suspension of opera
tion being due lo a lack of orders in
the present restricted market, and
tho fact that all warehousing space
In the plant is tilled with the manu
factured product. The managers do
not give any indication as to the
length of time their plant will be
closed, but say that at the first op
portunity to resume business it will
be their policy to open their plant
for full time, or as nearly full Hmo
as possible. The Gurney plant is ono
of tho best known plants in Hie Uni
ted States, and there are but one or
two similar plants in thc country.
They use the Gurney patent machin
ery in the turning out of large and
small bowls, and their business bas
included not only domestic orders,

on Hie subject of "Bolshevism." The
church was crowded almost to capa
city, there being no other service In
town last Sunday night, and all of
the local denominations were repre
sented in the congregation, lt will
provo both interesting, instructive
generally beneficial and uplifting for
our people to attend regularly and
hear the entire series of sermons that
Mr. Hamilton will preach, last Sun
day night's sermon on "Bolshevism"
being the first of the sorles. Next
Sunday night Mr. Hamilton's subject
will be "The Second Coming of
Christ." Tho complete list of tho sub
jects gives promise of a most inter
esting and profitable discussions of
live subjects that bear directly upon
both the spiritual and temporal sides
of our daily lives.

Last Notice to Trustees and Teachers
Concerning Certain Matters.
Walhalla, Dec. 7, 1020.
The school trustees and teachers
of Oconee county are urged to take
careful note of the following facts:
1. All teachers' certificates Issued
prior to July 1, I!)20, must be con
verted into State certificates. Appli
cation blanks will be mailed upon re
quest. This is the hist of several no
tices in regard to this. It is surpris
ing that many of our teachers have
not yet had their certificates con
verted. ,
2. All certificates must be recorded
in my office before the holders can
draw pay.
3. Teachers holding claims issued
prior to July 1, 1020. will please
send them to me before Dec. 25,
1 0 20, and I shall endeavor to get
them satisfactorily adjusted.
4. lt is expedient that trustees of
rural graded schools read the rural
graded school law and make applica
tion for such amount of State aid as
the law allows. Application blanks
will be in the hands of the trustees
by the time this notice is read. Pill
the blanks out accurately and mail
them promptly to me. These appli
cations are approved in the order In
which they are received by tho State
Superintendent; so do not wait un
til the funds are exhausted before
yon make application. Read thc
school law and meet its re<inirements
Some of the application blanks
for term extension aid sent ont by
me several weeks ago have not yet
been received at my office. Those who
attended to the matter promptly have
received their money already.
This means much to the schools of
Oconee Just now. as there is a scar
city of funds with which to operate
our schools.
This is" a matter of vital import
ance, and 1 urge every teacher and
trustee in the county to attend to
this business promptly .

Oiio Anderson Man shot by Another!
as Result of (.Minnel.
(Anderson Mall, Nov. 6.)
Columbus Shaw, aged 21?, n well
known white man of near Belton,
was Instantly killed Inst night near
Riverside Mill by being shot four
times through the heart. I. E. Wiles,
known as "Shack" Wiles, is now In
the Anderson county j;.il, chargid
with tho kllTitiR of Shaw, Wiles hav
ing conn- io th>* jail and surrendered
shortly after the killing was reported
Shaw was shol four times, the wea
pon used being a revolver, about a
38-culibre. The bullets all entered
the body just beneath the left shoul
der blade, ranging Inward and down
ward and several of them passing
directly through tho heart. One cut
the large blood vessel directly over
the heart. The wound of exit was
just above the ribs, and the bullets
on emerging tore a great hole in the
side ol' the body.
According to Wiles' statement at
the jail, he was riding with another
man and had a spotlight upon his
car. Columbus Shaw was driving a
Ford, and the two cars met. Wiles
states that Shaw yelled to him to
"shut off that damn spotlight." and
that he slowed up his car almost to a
walk, and then stopped.
"Columbus said," continued Mr.
Wiles, "Shut off your engine and
come here." Wiles says that he went
to the standing car and got upon the
running board of the car to better
Bee who was on the Inside. When t?'
got upon the running board, he says,
Shaw asked him if he didn't believe
ho would kill him. After laughing
off the matter, he says Shaw drew his
gun, and that he caught him by the
right hand, bringing the gun around
behind the seat of the car. where it
fired once. Ile says he then drew his
pistol and tired into the back of Co
lumbus Shaw. Shaw fell across the
side of the machine, and Wiles came
on to the business section of the city,
where he says he met Policeman
Aiken and surrendered lils gun. He
then started to the jail and met the
sheriff coming out of the jail yard.
The man was taken into the jail
and locked up. Jailer Hall stated this
morning that Wiles seemed to be
drunk when he came to the jail last
The tragedy occurred about ll
o'clock hist night. The Ford car in
which shaw was killed was at tho
Jail this morning, and it presented a
very gruesome sight. One of the bul
lets bad been fired through the back
of the front seat of the machine, and
this had torn out the upholstering.
The floor of the car. and the left run
ning board were red with clotted
blood, and showed that after dying
Shaw bad bled for a long time, hang
ing over the side of the car.
Shaw was a son of Mr. and Mrs.
C. C. Shaw, of near Belton, and is
survived by his parents and the fol
lowing brothers and sisters: Eugene
Shaw, Clarke Shaw, Peter Shaw. John
Shaw, and Mrs. Morris Bannister and
Mrs. Frank Andrews.
English Cotton Manufacturer Sends
Advice to .Manufacturers' Record.
( Manufacturers' Record.)
"Hold on to your coll?n like grim
death" is the advice- to the South
from ti leading English cotton manu
facturer in a letter to the Manufactu
rers' Record. His advice is good, lt
bs based on the fact that the world
actually needs all the cotton goods
that can be manufactured out of the
existing supply of raw material, but
that the world will liol buy on a fall
ing market, but will purchase when
ever the market begins to rise. This
is true of everything as well as of
cotton. Stagnation and poverty al
ways exist on a falling market. Pros
perity always comes with a rising
The bankers of South Carolina are
unitedly insisting that the cotton
acreage must be decreased 5 0 per
cent for tue coming year. They are
urging banks throughout the South
to refuse credit to every man who
will not agree to cut his cotton acre
age in half.
If cotton growers will hold on to
their present crop, as our English
friend advises, "like grim death,"
and the banks will force a reduction
of acreage by one-half, prices will
rapidly be adjusted to a higher level
and Ibo surplus stock of cotton will
be cleaned up, to Die great advan
tage of the South, assuring profitable
prices for years to come.
Let the South bold its cotton,
reduce its acreage, raise all its own
food-stuffs, put all surplus labor to
building highways and making mu
nicipal improvements, to the clean
ing up of farms and putting them In
better shape, and then out of this
depression in cotton it will win a vic
tory of permanent independence and
