C. Nunnally a high and deserved compllmen' He said that In traveling over the circuit he frequently took occasion to speak of the efficiency of Screven's clerk of the court and that he did not have a superior in the state. No clue has yet been discovered to the murder of John A. Jackson at Oliver last week. The grand Jury investigated the charges against the men who had been arrested but as there was no proof against them they were discharged. A purse has been made up among the citizens of the county as a reward for the arrest of the murderer and It is expected that this will be supplemented by a reward from the gov ernor. The grand Jury elected the following board of education for the ensuing year A. P. Wade. R. D. Sharp Dr. W. C Bowie. J. R. Evans Sr. and H. W. Parker.
