JOHN S. GIBSON PASSES BAR EXAM. Mr. J.S. Gibson of this city, who has been working at the A. and F. Shops for several years, went to Waycross two weeks ago and stood the bar examination on June 28th, and last Friday received notice that he had passed all the work. He will now take the oath before Judge Summerall which will admit him to the practice of law. Mr. Gibson says that he will take the oath at once but will hold to his shop job for a few months, when he will cut loose and will most likely open a law office here. Mr. Gibson is a man of family, coming to Douglas from Charlton County. His father, Elder Owen Gibson, is one of the best known Primitive Baptists in that section of the state. Mr. Gibson said that he has always wanted to read law but that the past few years has been the first opportunity coming to him. ----Douglas Enterprise
