On leaving the Masonic lodge-room at
Newnan last Tuesday night, Orlando Mc-
Clendon, E. D. Fouse, Tom Barron and
“Tun" Mitchell ran suddenly upon a hugo
snake that was slowly winding along the
sidewalk in front of Swant’s store, Tom
danced a jig up a flight of stairs, three at a
bound. “Tims'' first jump landed him in
the middle of the street, and the next
placed him entirely out of harm’s way.
Messrs. Fouse and McClendon attempted to
pass each other and were wedged together—
the irresistible meeting the immovable. At
this thrilling juncture a cotton strong, with
a small boy at one end, and a toy snako at
the other, disappeared around the corner.
Dr. J. T. Reese, of Newnan, is authority
for the statement that a Coweta county
gentleman has invented an automatic sig

the whistle is blown at every crossing with
unvarying regularity Thus, it matters not
if the engineer bo awake, drunk or asleep,
alert or neglectful, the whistle is sounded
at every crossing. The contrivance is
governed in its movements by the speed of
the locomotive, the alarm stops being set
after a careful computation of the distances
Between crossings, giving in either direction.
The invention has not yet been perfected,
and for this reason Dr. Reese withholds the
name of the inventor, but he is confident of
its ultimate perfection and success.
George Bedingfield, a farmer living throe
miles from Bartow, had iu his employ a

about 19 years. Friday Lorenzo complained

noon, the boy feeling some better, got on a
mule and went to Bartow for the mail. Ho
returned some time after l o’clock and went
into one of the rooms. A few minutes after
Miss Jennie Bell, who was sitting on the
front porch, heard a loud report, anil upon
going into the room to find out the cause,
she discovered the young man lying dead by
the side of the bnreau, the top drawer of
which was open. By his side was found a

About 12 o’ciock a few nights ago two
young men dropped down on the bridge at
Mitchell's mill, at Americus, to cool off and
enjoy the light of the moon on the placid
waters of the pond, and, while talking on
different topics, they heard u footstep, and
presently a dudlsh-looking fellow came in
sight, making his way from the city. As he
saw the two fellows on the narrow way he
stopped and surveyed the situation, and as
he had to pass, and there was no demon
stration on the part of the men
on the bridge, ne pulled a pis
tol, from somewhere about his make-up,
about as long as his arm, flourished it
around in the moonlight, took the middle
of the bridge, and went through on double
quick time. As he neared the end he hove

taken to roosting in one of his chimneys.
After they went to roost, he got on top of
the house, and placed boards over the top of
the chimney. Next morning the little black
birds found themselves imprisoned when
they wanted to get out. Going again to the
roof of the house Mr. Butts extended a hag
over the mouth of the chimnev, and then
had a fire kindled In the fire-place. There
was a tremendous fluttering and whirriug.
Most of the imprisoned birds rushed into the
bag, while many fell back into the fire. The
captured birds were counted. They num
bered 567, Insides those which were consumed
by the fire.
Thursday Walter Evans, a negro who had
an eye to husinoss, was trading in Capt. P.
H. Williams’ store, at Americus, when a
verdant country darkey, Tom Harden,
stepped in and asked him to change a flvo
dollar bill. Walt said; “I can’t do it, but
I’ll get it changed fer yer. Here, you hold
my hag till I get back. It’s got a heap of
t’ings in dur, more’n five dollars’ wuth.” He
went to the bar and asked the bar
keeper to give him the change for the five,
but ho said that he didn’t have it. Turntng
to Tom he said, “Keep my Dag dare till
I cum back,” and he went out with the bill.
He has not been seen nor heard of yet,
anil Marshal Lingo was set on his track later,
but learned nothing of the lively Walter.
The supposition is that he has gone to the
Treasury Department in Washington to get
the bill changed. Tom got only an old
sack with about 50c. worth of goods for his
Conductor Charles A. Bull, who runs on
the cannon ball train between Albany and
Montgomery, appeared as the defendant,
and JT W. McHenry, a drummer for the
Standard Oil Company, as the much-injured
complainant, before the Mayor of Albany
Friday, and later before the County Court.
McHenry was a passenger on Bull’s train.
He put his valise, or satchel, on the seat ho
occupied and laid his head on it. Bull came
along and told him it was against the rules
to put baggage on the seats, and that he must
remove Ins valise. McHenry refused to com
ply, said he was sick and needed his valise
for a head rest, etc., and whon the conduc
tor essayed to remove the valise, he (the
drummer) kicked him, and, perha[w, used
bad language to him. This occurred on tho
train between Montgomery and Sniithville.
After reaching Albany the conductor as
saulted McHeary. Bull was assessed sls
by the Mayor and S2S, including costs, by
the County Court.
The operations of the Wilkmson Paper
Mill for several months past have been re
markably successful, and it looks now as if
the enteiprise had entered upon anew era
of prosperity. The demand for their wrap
ping paper has been so great sinoe early
spring that no opportunity has been allowed
for the manufacture of any of the higher
grades, though arrangements are now
Wing made to that end. The daily
output of the mill for eight or nine
months past has averaged two tons, or
twelve tons per week. This has been sold
as fast as manufactured and the mill is yet
behind w ith its orders. New calenders and
a powei-ful rotary boiler weighing 18,000
pounds have been purchased and will be
placed in position in a few days. Other
new machinery has been secured also, tho

On the night of July 23, last. John C.
Reynold’s ouief engineer of the Savannah,
Florida and Western railroad, was a passen

the search and tho valise was non located in

white man of about 20 and a grand
son of John West who lives in
this county about six miles
west of Quitman. When it was found out
that Wes! had the valise ho then invented
a tale as to how it came into his ixissexaion,
which was more remarkable for its in

in-law to bring him a value, that, his
brother-in-law did not come, and that the
porter on tho train told him that that was

and went off with it. He also stated,
that he couldn’t read and couldn't toll

A suggestive political incident occurred
at Columbia Monday. An election w its held
in Ward l to till a vacancy in the Board of
Aldermen. E. W. Screven was the regular
Democratic nominee. G. V. Allworden had
previously declined the nomination, but a
baker's dozen of his friends, taking advan
tage of the light vote for the regular nomi
nee, played tuc practical joke of electing
him over Mr. Screven. The vote was: All
worden 13, Screven 9. Mr. Allworden says
he wall not serve, and another election be

The Governor’s Guards of Columbia will
take at least thirty-one men to the Phila
delphia celebration. Several others may
determine to go. Although the communi
ty has not sustained the Guards financially,
they are undeterred trorn their purpose to
make the trip. They will start at 1:40 p. m.
to-morrow by the Piedmont, Air Line, and
will reach Philadelphia at 3p. m. Wednes
day. Quarters have already lieen engaged
for them at Green’s Hotel. The badges
prepared by Miss F. G. Met'ants for the
Guards on their Philadelphia trip have been

heavy silver friuge. A palmetto tree is ar
tistically worked on each in palmetto leal',
and each has a knot of palmetto leaf on the
top. Each of the Philadelphia contingent
will have four of these budges. Those worn
at Cleveland's inauguration were so much
sought after by Northern soldiers that a full
supply was thought necessary for this oc
Tbe town authorities of Beaufort are hav
ing three artesian wells liored for the pur
pose of securing a lietter supply of water
for the lire department in case of fire. The
first one has reached a depth of fis feet, with
the water within a few feet of the surfaco
of the ground. Thursday a test was made
to ascertain how much water this one
alforded. The steamer was brought out
and put to work, throwing two streams,
aud continued for four hours without in
termission, and only lowered the water in
the well 30 inches, and as soon os the engine
stopped tlie water immediately arose
to where it was at first. This certainly
was a very satisfactory test, and the other
two wells will be 1 Mired at, once. At a depth
of fort y-eight feet in boring this first well
the auger went through a strata of phos

teeth were found m this well, was floating
