Last week a party was going from Dalton

miles from Ellijay, on the Dalt/m road, the
harness broke. A negro was driving, and a
ladv, Mrs. Ralph E. Walker and her 13
months old baby were in the buggy. The
negro hallooed to her to jump out. which
she did with the child in her arms. She
struck the ground with her feet first, and
the left foot was careened to the left. The

A gentleman of Gainesville has a fine
milch cow that suddenly fuiled in giving
the quantity of lacteal fluid she had usually
given, whereujion our friend concluded that
the cow was stck. Upon examination, lie
decided that her ailment was what is called
the “hollow tail." He pursued the course
usually adopted by cow doctors in such
cases, and split the tail, inserted a quantity
of salt, turpentine, etc., and bound it up
nicely. On going out the next day to sec
how “Bossy” was getting along, he caught
a half-grown pig, which he kept in the
same lot, busily engaged in sucking the cow;
and this accounted for the falling off of
milk for table use.
Jonathan Bell, a prominent man of Ogle
thorpe county, died Sunday He was about

life Before the war lie was very wealthy,
owning considerable property in the county

pletely broke him, and he has lived a life of
quiet and repose. He has hail his coffin
maiic a number of years. He told his
friends on Saturday tlmt he would soon die,
and to send for his ooffin. He had it made
waterproof, and had the makers fill it full
of water, screw the lid on and turn it over

A few days ago Mr. Hodges, of Milledge
▼ille, took a cheek to the imk for jiayment.
He insists that the cashier, Mr. Bcthune,
handed him a #:.'it gold piece and $5 in silver.
A few hours after the transaction at the
bank, Mi . Hodges handed the piece of gold
to VV. A. Hagixsl, a merchant of the city,
who discovered that the piis* wanted tfie
gold ring. An examination proved the
piece to is* the most cleverly executed coun
terfeit ever seen there. The cashier of the
hunk insists thut Hodges was not given the
piei-c ut the iinnk. Concerning the uffiiir
considerable bod blood has been generated.

The Ringgold Courier prints a queer
story about Mr. I. J. Bottom, of James
county, Tennessee. He came to Ringgold a
week ago and married Miss Rail. Four
hours after the happy marriage some parties
CMie from Tennessee, swore out a warrant
and hail the young man arrested and jailed
for the grave offense of horse stealing.
This action on the part of the officers almost
broke the heart of his bride. As to the
grief of both parties in being separated so
soon, it cun better be imagined than de
scribed. But like a devoted wife she went
to work to secure her husband's release.
And after five (lava of vouv mi tnilimr
without ceasing she at last employed the
services of Judge W, H. I'avue, who very
soon hn<! her husband brought liefnre the
Court of Ordinary and released under a writ
of halreas corpus. As soon as the prisoner
was released the reuniting of bleeding hearts
was only that of deep, heartfelt, affection
existing between husband and wife.. After
embracing and caressing for about two
minutes, the husband started for the moun
tain, and the further off he got the faster he
On Tuesday of last week, the county con
victs were ordered to cut down a steep hill
about seven miles from Thomasville, on the
other side of the Ochlochonee river. Thir
teen of the number were placed in two
wagons with Mr. Chastain in the front
wagon with a Remington rifle, and Sheriff
Hurst and Marshal Spair in a buggy, in the
rear. The work was completed and the
start back home was made without
incident. When they were approaching
the long river bridge, Sheriff
Hurst and Marshall Spair were driving
along some distance in the rear and were
startled bv loud screams and a terrible
noise on the bridge ahead, and suspecting
the trouble was hetwien the guards and the
convicts, they hastened to the scene. The
first glimpse they got of the affair they
saw hands, heels, heads, wheelbarrows,
shovels, hoes and picks flving through the
air in wild confusion. When they reached
the place they found the wagon torn all to
pieces, the horses fratically endeavoring to
extricate themselves, and tin buckets,
negroes, wheellxirrows, hats, shovels
and every imaginable sort of an implement
and utensil lying around on the ground
near the landing of tho bridge nil mixed
and tom up. They found that the horses
lieeame frightened on tho bridge and ran
away, and spilled the load of human flo-sli
and the impkunents and tools just as the
wagon reached the landing. No one was
hurt and not a single convict escaped.

word for it that he had never had
gloves on before, they started in. The first
round was unsuccessful. In the second the
stranger led out with his left and landed on
a nose that has long boon the admiration of
Leesburg, producing a curious and crimson
effect. This sett led the business. While the
mangled remains of “Charioteer” were

was heard to observe in answer to some

MISS RHETt^ MYRON.
A Strange Story of the War from
Soutn Caro; na
Edgefield (S. C.) Cor. Atlanta Constitution.
The death of Col. W. It. Smith, which
took place in Nor. York a few weeks sine*,
has brought to light a very remarkable inci
dent. Miss I (Lett Myron, the principal
figure in the drama, is a personal friend of
your correspondent, and from her the fol
lowing facts have been obtained, with per
mission for their publication:
Hayne Myron, the father of this young
lady, was a planter in South Carolina. His
home was a typical Southern home, spacious
and hospitable, surrounded by broad acres,
and faithful slaves. His family consisted of
his wife and Rhett, who was then n little
child, and the idol of her father, as well as
the pet of the plantation. At the breaking
out of tho war, in the fall of 1861, _ Huyne
Myron joined a volunteer South Carolina
Before leaving home he had a picture of
his little girl punted in miniature, and in
cased it in a locket that he placer! next to
his heart, saying: "My dulling, this will be
papa’s shield when he is in danger, and. his
sunshine when he rests;’’ and with eyes filltd
with tears, he smothered the face and sunny
head of his child with farewell kisses and
hurried awnv from his peaceful home out to
the world of danger. Six months later, in
a skirmish in Virginia, Hayne Myron was
killed, in close combat, by a Federal officer.
Only a few words were sent to the old home
to tell the sad story.
During Gen. Sherman’s invasion into
South Carolina the Myron homestead was
destroyed. The widow and daughter con
tinued to live on the plantation in an out
building. supported by the rents from the
lands. Two years ago Mrs. Myron died,
and through the influence of friends, Miss
Myron obtained a position as governess in
the family of Co'. W. R. Smith, of New
work. She stated to me that her first meet
ing with Col. Smith was peculiar. That
wlion his wife introduced her to him, say
ing, “This is our new governess from
South Carolina, Miss Rhett Myron,”
his face became deathly white, and
he gave a sudden start. (He was absent
from home when Mrs. Smith engaged her.)
He mechanically shook hands with t er anil
tried to speak, ijut his lifts seemed sealed.
But later his manner changed to kindness
and cordiality, and she was treated more as
an honored guest than a salaried teacher.
He insisted on paying her four times the
amount she charged for her services, and
made her duties light. One evening she
was sitting in the family circle, telling of
her past life down in South Carolina, of the
spacious house with its twenty columns, of
the dusk} - slaves, who used to sit her on
their shoulders, calling her their “little
queen” as they carried her through the cot
ton fields that looked like sens of snow foam.
For the first time she spoke of her
lather, how handsome and sad he looked as
he went aw - ay on that dreadful last day;
how he took her picture with him, and told
all he said. She states that she was torced
to stop in the midst of her words, for Col.
Smith turned ghastly pale and left the room.
It all seemed strange to me then, she said,
but the meaning is plain now. Miss Myron
continued to live with Col. Smith’s family
for two years. “It was a haven and home
to me,” she said; “I had so long toiled and
worked on our plantation, isolated from
society and all advantages, it was like a
fairy life had opened to me of ease nnd
luxury, but my heart was almost breaking
as I remembered all that 1 had lost in those
sad sweet days.”
Six weeks ago Col. Smith was taken sud
denly ill, and when he realized that death
was inevitable he expressed a desire to see
Miss Myron alone. She states that as she
neared the bed of the dying man, she saw
him holding something convulsively in one
hand, as he extended the other to her and
exclaimed: “Rhett Myron, forgive me be
fore I die; without your pardon 1 cannot
die; corno close and listen to what I have to
tell you. It was I who made you an
orphan, my hands are red with your
father’s blood. Take this,” he said, hand
ing me the package, “I found it on his
dying breast; it is your face; your name and
his name are upon it. Take it and forgive
one who has tried to expiate the wrongs
done you. Oh! can you forgive a dying
rnanf” and the voice became faint and low.
“Oh! sir. you both were soldiers; I freely
forgive,” and the poor girl, who could say
no more, fell unconscious to the floor.
“Thauk God,” he murmured and all was
When Rhett Myron recovered, the man
who had killed her father, and who was
later the best friend she ever knew, was
dead. In his will he bequeathed Cos her the
generous sum of $15,0 K) He also left a let
ter giving all the particulars of her father's
death. Only a few days ago I saw tho pic
ture—a sweet child face, in an azure cloud,
and on tho little plush case were marks of
blood. This is certainly the most rtnjiarka
ble incident it has ever been my privilege
