Will Tilman, of Bynum, a white
man of rather peculiar habits, was
found in the woods *a mile or two of
Bynum Wednesday of last week in
an unconscious condition. Ke has
been living on canned goods practical
ly, for a number of years. Near by

kind which had been partly eaten and
the supposition is that he ate part of
the contents, leaving the remainder
in the opened can, later eating more
of it, wheih resulted in ptomaine pois
Death of Mr. Bynum.
W. H. Bynum, of Franklinton, N.
C., after a lingering illness, passed
peacefully away at his residence on
May 5, 1923, and was buried in the
town cemetery at that place, on the
6th. He left a widow also one child
by a first marriage. His last wife
was Miss Endora Marks, of Chatham
county, (now Lee). Mr. Bynum was
devout member of the M. E. church
and a very useful and much loved citi
zen. Hrs# grave was covered with
flowers by the children of the town.

THE NEW JAILER.
Mr. John Bums has been appoint
ed by sheriff Blair as jailer for the
county, succeeding the late Harlowe
The position was sought by several
men and the decision for appointment
was not reached until Tuesday.
The work of the jailer is very im
portant and there is a great deal more
to the place than is imagined hv the
average person. To keep the jail free
from germs and vermin, contagious
disease, and look well to self preser
vation as well as to the safety of in
mates to follow, and to withstand the
annoyance of visitors, re'at.ves and
other trials incident to the work, is no
easy task. Tt is said that Mr. Taylor
was one of the best jailers in the state
and Ms successor has Chat obstacle
at least to c »mbat.
An Exciting Time.

Sometime during Friday night fire
broke out in the hotel, and although
very little damage was done, there
were some scared delegates and for a
time it was exciting, as some of the
ladies came out of the building dress
ed only in their nighties and some
wrapped in first one thing and anoth
Mrs. Farrell states that she would
have been as excited as the rest of
