In Burke county on Tuesday morning a
colored woman from the Wyatt place,
named Nellie Warren, was riding on top of
a wagon loaded with cotton. The mules
got frightened, and in attempting to run
away, struck a wheel against a tree. The
woman, falling off, was run over by the
loaded wagon and killed.
A sample of coal from the Brown mine,
near Fort Gaines, was submitted by Hon.
W. J. Green to chemical analysis by a cor|>s
of skillful chemists in Atlanta, and they
unanimously pronounced it the finest
sample they had ever seen in Clay county,
being none other than the genuine and
world-famous cannal coal.
Photographer Jackson, of Brunswick,
tells a gtxxl one on a well-known young
man. Some time ago the young man had
his picture taken, handsomely framed and
sent, it to a young lady friend as a souvenir
gift. The next day he received a note from
the lady, in which she thanked him for the
picture, but begged to return the frame, as
she made it a rule never to accept anything
valuable from a gentleman.
A petition of more than forty names on it
was presented to the Ordinary of Stewart
comity last Wednesday, praying him to
order an election on the sole of whisky in
that county. The petition was considered,
granted, filed in office and the order for
the election handed in for publication in the
Independent. But for reasons tiest known
to those who presented it, the petition has
been withdrawn and held for future action.
At Villa Rica Sunday Bud Aderhold
(colored) was caught while in the act of tak
ing money out of a money drawer. The
clerk caught him and took $(5 from him.
The merchant had him arrested and locked
up, and his preliminary trial was postponed
tillß o’clock. The merchant failed to appear
against him and he was released; and there
is a rumor on the streets that a prominent
farmer paid the merchant S3B to let the ne
At Columbus Policeman McMiehael cap
tured a burglar, Alexander Johnson (col
ored), in Mattie Carter’s house on Sunday
morning. Johnson succeeded in forcing an
entrance to the house through the window.
The cold draught from the open window
aroused the occupants from sleep, and see
ing the negro under the bed, she began
screaming for the police. The burglar
threw open the door, and ran into the hands
of Policeman McMiehael, who arrested and
landed him in the lockup.
At Forsyth Saturday evening about 5
o’clock Henry Merrick, a negro porter at
the Ellison House, made an assault upon the
little 3-_vear-old daughter of J. G. Ellison,
the proprietor of the hotel. The fact did
not become known until 'Sunday, and the
negro remained at large during the night.
He was arrested at the depot Sunday morn
ing by Sheriff King and lodged in jail, and
will have his commitment trial this week.
This is the second affair of the kind within
the last five months, and the people are
worked to a fever heat over it.
Mrs. M. M. Trabert died at Atlanta Sun
day at the residence of her grandsons, A.
L. and E. C. Kontz, on Marietta street.
She was born in the town of Ostheim,
Saxony, in 1799. This was the home of
Martin Luther. She saw Napoleon’s army
as it marched through Saxony in 1811. She
came to Atlanta in 1850 and has lived there
until the day of her death. She remained
in Atlanta through all the siege by Gen.
Sherman. Several shells were shot, through
the house she lived in. She has been a con
sistent member of the Lutheran church for
As an indication of the big business the
Americus, Preston and Lumpkin road is
doing we will state that last Thursday
morning, as the train from the western end
started to Americus it was filled with
freight and passengei-s. At Lumpkin all
the empty cars that could l>e obtained were
added, and when the train pul Us 1 into this
city it was over an hour late, and had filled
every car with freight and cotton, and at
last had to clear the express car and load it
with cotton bales. The train was a queer
sight when it reached Americus, but it
brought in a big load.
At Macon Saturday S. Gantt and George
Jones appeared before the Recorder to
answer to the charge of cheating and
swindling. This is the case where a young
countryman reported to Officer Brooks that
he had been mulcted of the sum of $5 for a
shave, hair cut and shampoo at the Brown
House barber shop. Ho failed to appear
Saturday, and tne case was continued.
Gantt says the countryman had his hair and
eyebrows dyed, the old price for which
would be $lO. He did not charge but $5 for
the work, which is less, he says, than would
have been charged elsewhere.
W. H. Daniel, a well-known citizen of
Wilkinson county, who lives near the
Oconee river, is now (54 years old, has nine
teen full-fledged boys and four daughters.
He says be never had a fever in his life,
never took a dose of medicine and never
had the backache, and can do more hard
work than any man in the district. He gets
up at 4 o’clock in the morning, never fails
to put in ten hours of good, lively work
every day, eate three good, square meals a
day, and does not drink coffee, tea or any
thing stimulating. He relies upon the laws
of nature for good health, and he expects to
live to lie 100 years old.
Probably never before in any part of the
country where game so little abounds has
there been a shot fired with the same effect,
under similar circumstances, as the one
which Andy Dixon, of Glascock county,
made a few days ago. Dixon killed four
sqnirrels at one shot and wounded a fifth.
The squirrels were out on the limbs of a tree
and not in a nest or hollow. A negro named
Warren Davis, a day or two ago killed four
squirrels at one shot. Three of them were
young ones, and they were trying to take a
hickory nut from the mouth of an old
“frisky tail. In these days when a hunter
kills even one squirrel at a shot it is counted
a good many.
LaGrange was excited Sunday morning
over three dnring burglaries Saturday night.
At the home of Dr. E. I). Pitman,'where
George W. Truitt, the big farmer, was rest
ing up stairs, Truitt’s pants ami little tin

down to the front gale, robbed ami left.
The room of John M. Barnard, at Mix
Gay’s,war also robbed, his clothing brought
out. searched and left, with cotton receipts,
which couldn’t be used without suspicion.
No money was found. Mr. Barnard is rail
road agent and President of the Oil Manu
facturing Company. At Moses B. Kirby's
boarding house, they hapixuiod into the
little boy’s room, searched around,(andwhile
the little fellow was awake, but frightened)
made a water haul there and left in peace,
and the boy’s narrative was thought to be
imagination until the news from Pitman’s
and Mrs. Gay’s spread.
Mr. Davis will arrive in Macon Monday
afternoon. How long he will .remain after
Wednesday is not known. Every effort
will tie made to keep him as long as possible.
He and his family will be the guests of Mr.
Marsh Johnson during their stay in Macon,
they will leave Beauvoir Sunday night, in

The United States Supreme Court, in the
cast' of A. J. Coffee against Groovey, has
reversed tlie decision of the Supreme Court
of tile State of Florida. This case grew out
of a disputed boundary line between Fiori
da and Georgia. The line was fixed in the
last century, and when anew survey was
made it was discovered that the former sur
vey was erroneous, and that it lapped the
land of Florida. Then arose the question
of the validity of tho titles to this land,
which hail lieen given by Georgia. The
Supremo Court holds that the titles are
At Mavport, about a week ago, a haul
was made with a seine owned by M. Conant
and fished by J. B. Arnau and crew, around
a school of berry fish. The catch was
eighty-four bushels of fish. While they
were taking the fish out of the seine on the
lieaeh a shark of the man eating species
made a rush for the fish and grnimed the
net in his mouth. He seemed bound to claim
a share. One of the crew killed him with
an oar, by striking him on tho head, while
others rushed into the water, grasped him
by the tail and pulled him out. Ho was
nine feet long.
At Mayport for the past five days there
has boon a gale from tho northeast, with the
highest tides of the past nine years. The
cottages of Jacksonville people have suffered
severely. Tho breakwaters on the entire
front, with the exception of N. A. Hall’s,
have gone. Many of the houses have lmen
undermined by the waves, and some of the
foundation posts washed out. Henry
Clark’s back porch is down. Charles
Marvin’s front, and part of his side
porch is gone. McDuff’s and Moses
Brown’s houses are troth down—complete
wrecks. There are three vessels off the bar
at anchor. One is recognized as the Louis
Bueki, the other two are three masters. A
fourth schooner was reported having lieen
seen last evening. The weather has been
too rough for (lie pilots to board them, but
will probably bring them in to-day.
blooding: the Sahara.
Pom the London. Daily N:irs.
Every one is familiar with occasional
projects for “Hooding the Sahara,” and the
possible effect upon the climate of Europe
has frequently been discussed by people
who are blissfully ignorant of the fact that
the bulk of the great desert is high above
sea level. A much more practical scheme
was placed before the British Association
the other day, and one which has a more
definite object—namely, the storage of tlie
surplus flood water of the Nile for use in
irrigating the delta during the dry season.
About seventy-three miles south of Cairo
there is a large depression called tbo Ruian
ha-in, which could lie filled with water at
the time or high Nile. Mr. Cope White
house, to whom the scheme is due, calculates
that the cost of the necessary works would
be about 21,000,000, for which a supply of
25,000,000 cubic metres jier day for 100
days could bo obtained. If such a
work were to be carried out during our tem
porary administration of the country we
should leave behind us a magnificent memo
rial worthy of the enlightened rulers who
in the dawn of civilization made Egypt the
wonder and envy of the world.

District Conference of the New Congrega
tional Methodist church has lieen in session
at the Royal church, near this place, closing
the Conference Saturday night and tho re
ligious services Inst night.
The reports from the various churches
were quite cheering, as they have, many of

stances; still, the Lord has been with tho
] preachers, and much good has been done.
All are greatly encouraged.
Rev. J. J. Davis was elected President for
the coming year, and D. J. Miller. Secretary.
Rev. J. M. Stiger was discontinued as a
preacher in the church, his offense being
preaching spurious doctrine from that held
by the denomination.

Feeling and touching resolutions ot con
dolence were offered to the widow and chil
dren of the Rev. Martin J. Inman, deceased.
The district was divided and anew district

trict. Rev. L. B. Wilson was elected Presi
dent, and Lewis Thomas Secretary, of the

The next conference will be held at Kettle
Creek church October, 1888.

The preaching was done by Messrs. W. A.
McDonald, J. J. Davis, I*. B. Wilson, H. J.
Thomson, D. J. Millor and Lewis Thomas,
and was accompanied with great power of
the spirit, the entire congregations being
under its influence at every service. Nino
new members were tho result.
Lung Troubles and Wasting
diseases can be cured, if properly treated in
time, as shown by the following statement
from I). C. Freeman, Sydney: “Having
been a great sufferer from pulmonary at
tacks, and gradually wasting away for the
past two years, it affoi-ds me pleasure to
testify that .Scott’s Emulsion of Cod Liver
Oil with Lime and Soda has given me great
relief, and I cheerfully recommend it to all
suffering in a similnr way to myself. In
addition, 1 would say that it is very pleas
