This menage stated that B.glcy made uo confession; but'that he talked rs the straps' were beinc adjusted about his face and head. What the words were, the Warden failed to hear. The doomed rain hud written to friend-; here that he was innocent of the murder of Captain White, though | he had never made any effort id prove an alibi on th£ "'ght ot ti 11 murder. Hii spiritual adviser, Ju-bua Griffin, had eshowtted every means by word of his own and* that con tained in th-i "Scripture-* to induce hira to confess But the man, so soon to die, a-:ver di.spnired until; just a bhort while before the hour tcr his death. He h«d some hope that something would be clone for him evtu in those last moments. So he walked unfalteringly to the death chair. But when all hope was gone and the electrical fixcurss were being placed about his bod)*, with the awful fact of eternity staring him in the face, he.for the 6rst time realized the great load upon bis foul and murmured? "I am a guiltv man." There were those from Williamston who heard his words and hi* call for God to have mercy on his soul. There bad never been any doubt among the citizens of Williamston as to Bagley's guilt even though he should have died with cosed lips, but it is best that be confessed ere his soul went to eternity. His body was embalmed and brought here Saturday, and Sunday an im mense crowd cf his race attended the burial. - . Notice To the Democratic Voters of the 2nd. Senatorial District.

Buffule made plain the Gos pel truths and ma ie a profound ituprersion upon his hearers. The choir led bv Mr. Fitzgerald did faithful servi:e and the singing was an attractive part cf the moet tings. There \\k.-re several additions and the Church was greatly revived? A. C. L. R. R. Criticised Wkeu the realroad company con sented to elevate the track above Main Street extension just this' side of Martin's farm, it was thought that the company would build a cement arch inder which 1 the street would pass. Not so, however, for there is nothing ex cept unsightly wooden piling there to support the track. The citizens of the town have severely criticised the company's action. They want a more, endurable and attractive structure there. After voting for good roads, the people desire to bave them built as attractive as possible under the natural condi | tions. The Coast Line should ac cede to the demands of the people and give them something worth while. John R. Staton, joyce, Ky., had an exceptionally severs attack of whooping cough. He say?: "If it had not been for Foley's Honey and Tar Compound l would have been compelled to quit - nstead, I never missed a day, and Foley's Tar Compound gave me instant relief and is ' the only cough medicine we ever use." Contains no opiates. Saunders & Fowden. * OAK CITY ITEMS Miss Bessie Casper has returned from Lewiston. The Oak City Band had returned from a two week's trip furnishing music nt land sales.
