There is a first class school at Folkston doing well under the able management of Professor Mitchum, one of the most systematic instructors that ever taught in that town. Church buildings dot almost every section of Charlton and the sound of the Gospel may be continually heard in the land.

Rev. R.L. Hatcher Dead. News was received here yesterday of the death of Rev. R.L. Hatcher of Charlton County. His death was rather sudden as he had been sick only a few days with some kind of bowel trouble. He was once a member of the Hortense Methodist Church but afterward moved to Charlton, still remaining in the methodist Church. He was a Local Preacher, full of vim and love for the cause and an ardent supporter of the Sunday School work. He was about 35 years of age. He leaves an aged mother and a sister dependent upon him for support. His remains will be interred in Bethel Church cemetery in Charlton County.
