Mary, auolYicr negro girl about 7 years of
age, and with whom she played considera
bly, had made her eat a lot of grass. The
child went to bed, and was sick up to Monday.
The mother went to Dr. Walker, she says,
and obtained a prescription which was filled
by Payne & King, but for some reason tho
medicine was not given. Just before tin*
child died, she is reported as repeating the
story of eating the grass, and a number of
negro women hoard it. The child Mary
denies that Charlietta ate the grass, but the
negroes in the neighborhood are firm in
their belief that it was a case of poisoning.
Officer Wognon went down to investigate
the matter, but on hearing the age of Mary
decided not to make any arrest.
A lively riot occurred at the Central
depot at Americus on Monday just, before
the 12:20 train pulled out in which banjos,
bricks and razors played an important part.
A party of negro tourists were in the act of
boarding the train en route to Birmingham
when IV ill Everett (colored), of Americus,
seized the occasion most opportune and cleft
the skull of Robert King with a nice now
kiln-dried brick. Robert shed considerable
gore, but instead of getting mad
and retaliating he at once set about
to save all the debris of the badly
crushed brick that he could. While
this was going on, Jack Duffy wore out a
banjo over tho head of Frank Everett,
father of the belligerent William, who im
mediately sought safety in flight, fairly
splitting the atmosphere as he ran. Things
began to look serious about this time ami a
general row was imminent, when fortunate
ly the train pulled out with the parties
aboard, thus putting an end to the lively
anil entertaining drama.
Konio unknown miscreant effected an en
trance at Americus into the new courthouse
building Saturday night,and mounting one of
the high benches left by tho workmen in
tho county court room, proceeded to cut the
plastering overhead with an axe or hatchet.
The room is 20x30 foot in dimension, anil
nearly the entire celling was hacked anil
cut down in such a manner as to make it
necessary to do the entire work over again.
A colored workman heard the cutting from
the outside, and notifying a police
man they entered the building together just
in time to see the man who did the cutting
go out of tho window head first. He had
procured a ladder from a neighboring build
ing, and placing it against otto of the lower
windows went in. There is no clue as to
who the party was, but as this is the second
time that tho act has been committed, a
strict watch will hereafter be kept upon
tlie building, and if tho miscreant is cap
tured he will be made to suffer the full pen
alties for his diabolical work.
Seaborn I. Saffold, of Selina, Ala., was at
tlie executive office at Atlanta Monday for
the purpose of collecting the reward of $l6O
offered for tho arrest of Ben F. Williams.
Williams was wanted in I’ulaski county for
a felony, and Saffold turned him over to
the Sheriff of that county July 10. The
reward was not paid Saffold for the reason
that the power of attorney he brought from
Sir. Carlisle, who was tho State’s agent in
tho matter, was not regular. The objection
was merely formal, as there was no doubt
that Mr. Saffold was all he claimed to lie
in the matter. Ho will return the
warrant after it is properly corrected.
Tho history of Ben Williams is rather
an unusual one. He was first arrested for
murdering nn old man in Pulaski county,
having first forged his name to a deed of
some land, the murder being intended to
conceal the other crime. Ho was arrested
and tried, but was acquitted, His accom
plice in the matter was thought to bo easily
convicted if Williams could tie induced to
testify against him, but having been ac
quitted Williams had left for another State.
Ho was then indicted for forgery, and a re
ward of $l5O offered for his arrest.
In the mean while the trial of his ac
complice canto off, and Williams not being
present, he was acquitted. The prosecution
then had no use for Williams, and an effort
was made to have the reward withdrawn.
But it was not, and Ik>ohuso of it Williams
was finally apprehended. lie will ho tried
at the next term of I’ulaski Superior Court.

by hearing a muffled report as of a pop
gun. The young man aforesaid professed
ignorance as to the cause of the report, but
slapping his derby quickly over Ins coat
