Albany News and Advertiser: A Negro
is a Negro just as much as an Irishman is
an Irishman or a Frenchman is a French
man, and is just as much entitled to have
the name of liis race written with a big N.
All recognized authorities agree as to the
correctness of this view of the matter, we
believe, but it is the custom of the news
papers of tho day to print the name of this
race with a little n. This results, we think,
from the common use of the term to de
nominate inferiority, or in a spirit of re
proach. Nothing of this sort should ever
override propriety in the established rales
of grammar, orthography or anything else.
Hereafter the News and Advertiser intends
to write Negro with a big N.
At Tallapoosa on Friday last, while the
hands at Rev. J. C. Jackson’s saw mill were
stopped for dinner, the mill shed took fire in
some unaccountable way, and when it was
reached by the hands, who were all near by,
the flames had so rapidly spread that there
was no chance to save it. Besides the sta
tionary engine, planer and saws, Mr. Jack
son’s traction engine was under part of the
shod. The engines and machinery nre not
entirely ruined but can lie placed in work
ing condition again, although it will take
much time and heavy expense to do it.
Monday Mr. Jackson had the misfortune to
lose some 10,000 or 15,000 feet of lumber by
fire. This was being ldlndried, and acci
dentally caught from the fire under it.
The Clerk of the Superior Court of Early
county, J. W. Alexander, Jr., is engaged in
a work which will prove of inestimable
value to the county m the future and will
bring him a snug little sum also. He is
preparing an abstract of all the deeds re
corded in his office, which will is' arranged
in numerical indexes in suitable books pre
pared for the purpose. All the deeds, etc.,
from tho year 1831 up to tho present time
which concern the county as it now stands
will be recorded in one book, and those
which were in original Early county, but
now in other counties, will be placed in a
separate book. The records in the office
show that the first deed was recorded on
May 11, 1861, nearly sixty-six years ago, by
Nevin Mcßryde, Clerk of Superior Court.
Mrs. N. B. Glover, of Newnan, met with
a serious mishap one day last week. She
sent a negro man out in the fields to gather
a few stalks of elder, with which she de
signed making a mouth wash for one of the
children. The negro returned in a short
while with a good sized bunch of what was
supposed to lie elder, but for some reason
Mrs. Glover suspected that the negro had
made a mistake and brought thunaerwood
instead of the elder, the resemblance being
so close as to render such a mistake not only
possible but very probable. Not satisfied
with her own inspection, however, she
called on one of her neighbors to assist in
the examination. They finally agreed that
the shrub was elder, and believing it to lie
harmless, Mrs. Glover liegan washing the
roots preparatory to making the desired tea
In a few minutes her face, hands and arms

that she hail committed the very mistake
which she had been so careful to avoid. The
shrub pioved to be thunderwood.
Deputy Marshal J. J. Rowe, in company
with H. L. Cornell, was engaged all last
Wednesday in hunting blockade stills in
Haralson county, and succeeded in locating
two. About sundown they went to the
home of Mr. Cornell, about “six miles north
west of Tallapoosa, to spend tho night.
About midnight they heard persons ap
proaching the nouse, and soon discovered a
party of six or eight armed men, who sur
rounded the building, and at a given signal
tired a volley into it. In all about twenty
shots were tired, when the party retired.
There were in the houso besides the two men
Mrs. Cornell and six children. The house is
built of planks, which wore easily pene
trated by the bullets, and the wonder is that
someone was not killed, but fortunately ail
escaped injury. The next fioruing a hand
ful of bullets were picked up in the house.
It is not long since a similar attack was
made on Cornell’s house, but he was absent
at the time. In December last the house of
Deputy Marshal Rowe's father was burned
Dublin Gazette: On last Saturday night
when the up passenger train passed Harri
son, on the Wrightsvtlle and Tennille rail
road, some miscreant standing beside the
track threw a large iron spike, which struck
the engine cal) near the seat of the engineer.
The missile was thrown with such force
that an indentation the size of the spike was
made in the wood. Engineer Lanier stopped
his engine, and he and his fireman sprang
to the ground, each armed with a pistol.
They saw a negro man run down the track,
and gave pursuit. The negro soon came up
with two others, and wheeling around he
fired at tho engineer and fireman, who
forthwith returned the fire. Some six or
seven shots were exchanged and the negroes
fled. Engineer Lanier says that he does
not know whether or not either of the
liegres were hit. He says, however, that he
knows the negro who threw the spike, and
that he will lie arrested and receive the full
penalty of tho law. Several attempts have
been made to wreck trains on this road,
and great vigilance shonlil bo exercised in
endeavoring to arrest the guiity ones and
bring them to justice.
Sam Thomas, the negro caught under the
curbing of the well near MilledgeviUe
Thursday, died a most horrible death. The
wooden curbing, in falling, caught Thomas
in such close quarters that he was obliged to
stoop over and had no use of himself at all.
His crying and piteous prayers for help
touched the most callous heart. Inch at a
time he felt the water rising, and frequent
ly yelled to those above him telling them
how much the water had risen. Finally’
almost overcome from suffocation, cold and
anxiety, he cried out: “If you don’t reach
me quick Jam gone. The water is now up
to my chin.” This exclamation was fol
lowed by a gurgling noise, and the pioor
negro w- left in a watery
grave. It was impossible to reach him,
and he will be left there until his final sum
mons. King Champion went in the same
well Friday and had a miraculous escape
from the same fate. Ho went down in a
bucket, end on reaching the jioiiit where
the curbing caved he kicked np a rock from
the side of the well, loosing the rock curb
ing above, which began falling. Mr.
Champion, through almost sui>orhuman
power, pulled himself to the top of the well
by the rope. The bucket was caught in the
well by the falling rock, and was covered
from view while Sir. Champion was climb
ing tho rop*. Mr. Champion received pain
ful injuries from the failing rock. etc., but
nothing serious. The well is 60 feet deep,
uud Mr. Champion climbed the rope 40 feet.

“it's terrible, isn't it? List night I ex
perienced a severe fright, and my Imir turned to
Its present silvery hue immediately."
A few days after this tho Austin man again
encountered Wigglcsivorth wearing beautiful,
resplendent, coal black locks.

had Limi owing me for a long time, and tho
pleasurable emotions were so violent that they
turned it iißck again to Its original color.”
