Dry County and One For
Attempt to Murder.
All day Friday was again devoted to
the Jackson murder cese. Many wit-
Snesses were put on the stand. Tlihe evi-
dence was principally rebuttal teestinoi iv
There seemed to be much interest mani-
feated in the case during the day by the
spectators, and the relatives of the muans
who was killed, and thos"of the man on
trial for the killing, who had tieen pres-
ent during every session for the 'week
-were tilll present, and when court ad-
jourmned friday evening until Saturday
"hnmOrangat 8>3o, it was hairlly believed
- that the case would go to the jury as
soon as it really did.
Court convened Saturday morning and
the forenoon was again devoted to taking
testimony, but when court convened for
the afternoon session it wa. Iound that
no more evidence would Ie offered, and
the attorneys proceeded to address the
jury. As has already been stated in the
Star, the attorneys in the case were States
Attorney B. P. Calhoun and Attorney R.
E Davis for the State, and Attornie s C
C. :Thoumas, B. A. Thlrasher and S. L.

the court adjourned till 6:45, at which
time Attorney Thomas appetarcd itt .behalf
of the defendant, and inailde all earliest

States Attorney Calhoun followed Mr.
Thomas, and his effort in behalf of the
State was grand.
Judge Wills read his charge to the jury,
and at just five minutes to ten o'clock
Saturday night, the twelve men wlio hiad
been hearing nothing but matters con-
nected with the case during alHmost an en-
tire week, and who then held the fate of
the defendant in-tlIeir hands, went to the
jury room to consider what their vcrnlict
Court- was then adjour ed but tithe
judge,,and nearly all of the spectators
retained in the court room, thinkitug
that a verdict might possibly Ie reached
before midnight. About 11:30 the. jury
asked to have the judge's charge read to
them again. This was done, art almhnost
inm'iediately upon their return to their
room the great clock on the court house
began to strike for the midnight hour,
It. was 'then Sunday, and court was ad-
journed-till Monday morning at 8:3o.

was charged with shooting another negro,

under the ear, crushing the jaw

various methods of treatment have
been proposed whereby the hired man
may be Induced to stay with tho farmer

when It come to the question of doing

situation becomes serious. Yet 1

Mr. Stetson was President of thel
