fairly good sixed audience, although
not nearly so large ,as might have
been expected. The extremely cold
weather during the day prevented
many from attending, who otherwise
might have been present.
However, those who were on hand
were more than repaid. Dr. Brown's
talks contained much valuable infor?

He proved a very witty speaker and
kept his audience in good humor,

Rural Follceanna Boy kin Rewarded
for Nights of Vigil.
When he arrested Ben Murray, col?
ored In Mr. C. J. Galllard'o store at
Dalsell, Rural Policeman H. E. Boy
kin felt himself repaid for nights of
vigil within the store, for it Is bellev
jal, therm which have been occurring
from Mr. Galllard for some time will
come to an end.
Sometime ago Mr. Galllard noticed
that certain articles were missing
from his store. He reported the mat.
tor to Rural Policeman Boykin, who
at once got busy in an effort to trace
the thief. A few nights later another
entrance was made into the store and
more stuff was missing next morning.
About that time Mr. Boykin was con?
vinced that Murray, who was employ?
ed by Mr. Galllard, was the thief, but
he had to have the proper evidence
before he made the arrest. To secure
this Mr. Boykin each night had him?
self locked In the store and he spent
the night there. Last Tuesday night
someone came to the store and tried
for about fifteen minutes to work the
lock, but seemingly without success,
as entrance was made and Mr. Boy?
kin meantime was waiting In sus?
pense Inside the store. Last night,
however, Mr. Boykin heard some?
one approach the store a# about
9:30 o'clock and he prepared
for him. The look was picked and
entrance effected. The man went to
the cash drawer and opened It. but
there was no money In It. He then
went to the cash register and was
endeavoring to force it, when Mr.
Boykin covered him with his pistol
and stopped him from further depre?
dations. The negro was brought to
town and lodged in Jail on the charge
of burglary, to await trial. He stated
that he had merely entered tho store
out of curiosity, but this did not go
with the officer.
