Of those called, some are still in service, others have been honorably discharged. It may be that some names are not entitled to he on the following list, or perhaps some names have been omitted, in either case, the readers of THE LEXINGTON DISPATCH-NEWS are asked to give their aid in revising the list so as to make it not only accurate but also complete. The teachers, the pupils and the friends of the school have been working to get an accurate and complete list, and they will appreciate any further aid from the public who will kindly send reliable information to W.

Court Will Meet Monday Morning
Court of general sessions will convene here next Monday, May 22, with Judge J. W. DeVore of Edgefield presiding, and the outlook now is that the session will continue for two weeks, as there are a number of important cases awaiting trial and it is the intention of Solicitor Callison to insist on them being brought up at this term.

It was stated this morning by T. C. Sturkie, who represented Gappins at the trial and in his appeal to the supreme court, that in all probability the three men, Kirby, Gappins and Fox, would be brought to Lexington during Monday for resentence to electrocution. These three men were convicted at the fall term of court of murder in the killing of William Brazell, the Columbia taxi driver, and sentenced to die last October, but their apepals to the supreme court stayed the sentence.

For trial at the coming term of court there are seven murder cases, several of assault and battery and a number of cases of a more or less minor nature. The murder cases that will probably be called this term are:

Newt Kelley and Frank Goff. charged with murder in the killing of David Shull in New Brookland over a year ago, which has been continued from time to time. Solicitor Callison states that ths case will be among the first called for trial.

J. C. Swygert of Leesville, charged with killing Dr. J. C. Nicholson in the streets of Leesville last year. This case was brought up at the last term of court and resulted in a mistrial.

Dr. Rice B. Harmon, charged with murder in the killing of Olin M. Price a few months ago.

Willie Felder, negro, for killing a negro woman and a negro man at a home near Swansea several months ago. Folder is in jail.

(next few lines unreadable)

? Humphries, negro, will be tried for murder for the killing of Willie Green at Batesburg in May 1920.

Henry Corley, negro, charged with killing his mother-in-law last fall.

Other cases of a less serious nature that will come up for trial are: George W. Miller, who shot and seriously wounded D. E. Hammond at Gilbert some time ago, is charged with assault and battery with intent to kill. J. F. Kelley, white, charged with bigamy. There are also a number of whiskey cases to be tried.

The following jurors have been drawn to serve for the two weeks:
