Shotgun Was Used by Odessadale Boy.

Odessadale, Ga. August 29 - (Special.)
Harold Stillman, 14 years of age, who lived one mile from Odessadale, shot himself to death Wednesday afternoon. A shotgun was used to accomplish death, which was instantaneous. The entire load entered his heart.

The boy was well thought of here, and his mother, a widow, has the deep sympathy of all.

The boy had been ill for several days, which probably accounts for his strange act.
