Pajaej Successful Examination.
Walor Rcberts (white) a Me
tropolis young man, one ol merit
and high esiaem, alter a nest
rigid exaniina inn at O town, this'
st*.te l'"eb 24, aod 25, passed the'
bar examination and was ad rit
ted to practice law as a lull fiedg
ed attorney. He was handicap
ped from the start having failed
to reach toe city for morning < x
amitnination but v.ith that indcir.
itab.c wid power wiii.lt is chaizc
istic ol the man he went in at
this late hour to win sed cztue
our with the uther 70 succcsslui
1
ones who had more cr.oie than
naif day ti e start cl him. This
is another object lesson to tlie
young man watte or bl*cl: with
.united means, showing vviiat can
be accomplished by a tnau with a
purpose and a will behind it.
Mr Roberts, took tlie corie-j
•pondence law coutse and also'
tutored under Attorneys W. C. !
Mulkey. and F. K. Young, who
well verred in law. Mr. Roberts
is a close student ol men as weli
as ol books, and stands high wilh
all classes ol citizens
WRh his business experience of
eight years coupled with tlie
knowlcge ol law he is destined to
be one ol the leading lights in
'‘Egypt," in his chosen pro fess
ion.
He will practice law in connec
tion with his already large inswr
an:e busir.edi.
The Gazette points with a deal
of pride to this man with such
sterling qualities as he will no
doubt, be found in the legislative
halls in vety near future. His
recent advancement has killed
that bee that was buzzing ;n his
bat lor comity clerk, as he will
not be a candidate.

guns and went out and soon alter
a gun shot was heard and they
