Capt. U. M. Roberts, of Brunswick, had
a sad experience in his household last Sun
day evening. The cat got locked up in his
dining-room, where the table was all spread
ready for supper. The Captain and family
had gone out for a walk meanwhile. Upon
their return on opening t he dining-room door
they found that his catship had eaten all he
wanted and scattered the rest all over the
floor. To cap it all it was Sabbath, and the
cook had been dismissed and was gone.
At Griffin Monday Walter Bate-,one of the
proprietors of the Griffin gin, happened to a
very serious if not fatal accident. The en
gine used at this ginnery is a fifty horse
power improved engine, and at the time
was running at full sjieed, when Mr. Bates
attempted to throw the main belt off with u
small piece of scantling, which was twisted
out of his hand and whirled around -with the
rapidity of lightning. On the rebound it
struck him a severe blow just under the
left ear and along the jaw bone, knocking
him senseless, in which condition he re
mained for sometime.
At Montezuma Monday, when the train
stopped at the station, a negro passenger
jumped off and ran to the nearest barroom
for a drink. The train was behind time,
and it started before the negro had got
back. He rau as fast as he could, jumped
for the steps, missed his footing and rolled
under the cars. For a moment he looked as
though he would be crushed to death, and
as the train moved on he lay still and
quiet, and people thought him dead. On ex
amination, however, it was found that one
of his feet was crushed, and was amputated,
and all that surgical skill could do was done
Last Wednesday a party of negroes, re
turning from Augusta, got off at Chalker
and started to their homes on a neighboring
plantation. Among the crowd were George
Mason and John May, both the worse for
whisky. A dispute arose between them as
to a remnant of whisky in a flask. May as
saulted Mason with a drawn knife, and Ma
son, after retreating for some distance, made
one thrust at his adversary, cutting his
throat from ear to ear. In the absence of
the magistrate of the district, and the great
distance to the Coroner's residence, Justice
Bostick went out and held an inquest, the
verdict being justifiable homicide.
D. K. Walker, of Thomaston, has on his
place an old negro woman about 95 years of
age. His father bright her when she was
but Ifi and she has been in the family so
long that she rather thinks she still belongs
to them. The other day she went into the
house and asked Mrs. Walker to write a letter
Tor her to her mot her,who she said,“belongs
to St. George.” Her mother, of course, has
been dead many years, but the simple
creature has forgotten the lapse of time,
and thinks of her mother as still alive. This
old woman has some gourds, pitchers, cups,
etc., which must be considerably over a
century old, as they lielonged to the “mistis”
of this old woman’s mother.
John R. Giddens, of Dodge county, tells
quite a singular incident which occurred to
him a few mornings since. Mr. Giddens
arose early, as is his custom, dressed him
self, put on his hat and went out to the well
to draw a bucket of water; returned to the
house and proceeded to mako a fire prepara
tory to getting breakfast. While he was
busy at these morning duties he thought his
hat fit him rather closely, but did not give
the matter any further attention. When
he went out, however, to bathe his face and
hands he laid his hat aside, and out crawled
a vendmous-lookingsnake, measuring :> l'eet
in length. Just how or when his snakeship
got into his hat Mr. Giddens does not know.
Dr. L. C. Mattox, of Homervllle, lias a
peculiar well on his plantation, which to all
appearances is without bottom, boing a hole
in the ground whose depths cannot for have
not as yet) been fathomed. Below the curb
appears a soft, muddy substance, which will
give way until a long pole gives out. While
all other wells in that vicinity are drying up
the doctor has an abundant supply of water.
The little fish which has been in there for so
long was missing one morning, and for
about a month did not show up, until one
day it came back from its wanderings.
There is no telling where it had been, or
bow deep and extensive the doctor's well

Dawson Xem: On last Thursday morning
! a crowd gathered in front ot the engine
j house in answer to summon* of the lire bell,
j it was a false alarm, and all the young
linen, feeling good, decided to have some
amusement before dispersing. A foot race
1 was gotten tip on the spur of the moment,
! and Iho competitors were Col. W. B. Gibson
j and Judge J. L. Janes. Their weight is
! about 240 pounds each, and beta were nearly
| equally divided lictweei) the two. Gibson,
[ however, was the favorite, and bad to give
i Judge Janes ten steps the -tart in aseventy
five curds race. Both did some good work,
but Judge Junes fairly hunqied himself <m
’ the home stretch and came out three lengths
ahead of Gib on, amid the cheers and
shouts of his friends who had barked their
judgment on his ability to win the race.
Thursday night, as the train from Gaines
; viile reached Bellmout junction, en route
for Jeffei-son, Dr. S. S. A earwood, of Ten
digress, lost his pocketliook, and claimed
tkat his pockets had lieen picked. There
were three strangers, that is, people the
doctor did not know, on the train, one of
whom was the conductor, John Singleton,
who was running in place of Conductor
Clarke. It was proposed that the whole
crowd of men on the train be searched.
This was unanimously accepted, and
every one entered the baggage car
and submitted to a thorough personal ex
amination, but neither the pocketliook nor
money was found. Conductor Singleton
told Year wood that lie was on the platform
of the car at Candler Station with his [socket
book out, and must have drop[ied it there.
Ycarwood did not believe it, but finally
agreed to go back and look for it. He re
turned oil the uptrain, took a light, and
found the missing property all intact, where
he had dropped it. Tne loss created quite a
commotion among the passengers until the
property was fouud.
At Gainesville on Thursday night Jacob
Short, colored, was accidentally, by the ex
plosion of a kerosene lamp, burned so badly
that he died from the effects thereof Satur
day evening, and was buried Sunday. He
was one oi the fixtures of the city. He
was (53 veal's o!d, and during the war was
tho body servant of D. E. Banks of that
place, and when his master was shot down
be took him upon his shoulders and
carried him off tho field and saved him
from capture. In doing so received
two wounds—one in the arm and the
other ill the leg. but nothing daunted tie
bore his master to a place of safety. In
stead of joining the Union League, as most
of the colored people did, be became a
staunch and uncompromising Democrat,
and has always voted the Democratic ticket.
No Confederate soldier was prouder of his
war record than “Uncle Jake.” His white
friends purchased a neat funeral outfit, fol
lowed him to the grave, and w ith their own
hands buried him. He was usually liked by
ail the white people, but his own race hail
but little to do with him.
Augusta ('/iron iclr: Monday night a re
porter learning from a reliable informant
that a fire was raging at Langley factory,
dispatched to the scene and learned that the
fire occurred in the picker room of that
manufactory and had done considerable
damage to machinery, besides burning
fifteen bales of cotton, and that the fire had
been mastered by a force of workmen and
was under control. This information
was conveyed to President \\ r .
C. Sibley. The Chronicle was
thanked for its information. How
ever, an officer from the factory had
just arrived bringing the information, being
unable to get possession of the wires. lie
stated that the fire wos under complete con
trol when he left. He did not think more
than t n bales of cotton had been destroyed.
The accurate extent of the damages how
ever, could not tie learned, owing to the con
fused condition of things during the excite
ment that reigned when he left. All losses
are fully covered by insurant* and will re

left at 4 o'clock this morning for the factory.

Thomas Laubn-'lt, of Orange county, is an
experimenter in other direction* than iu
farming. He is just now engaged in clean
ing up a tract of hummock land near the
St. John's river east of Chuluota. In one
sjiot he had a group of very fine cabbage
palmetto trees which lie w ishes to preserve.
In the centre of tlie group was a large pine,
and to cut this would endanger some of the
paimettoes. He. therefore, decided to blow
up tlie [line, as there would lie less liability
of the paimettoes being crushed by the
pieces than bv tlie entire Wee. Preparing
an explosive cartridge, of somewhat uncer
tain power, he put it into the tree, aud at
taching a fuse he Ut out for some distance
and laid himself flat on the ground and
awaited results. They came, and astonish
ment came with them. The pine tree was
removed, there was no doubt about it, for
it was not there, or elsewhere, so far as was
discoverable. With it had gone about a
quarter of an ncre of Florida’s richest hum
mock, and the entire group of paimettoes for
fifty feet in all directions. Mr. l-aubaeb is
still of the opinion that he miraculously es
eaped an earthquake.
Things That Will Remind the Veter
ans of Other Days.
From the Macon ((Va.t Telegraph.
The city is flooded with Confederate
money. Mrs. Virginia Co[ie, who is one of
the unreconstructed rebels, has in her pos
session a picture of the first secession flag
hauled up in Savannah. Mr. John Grimes
has a small coffee pot made for him in the
early part of the war by Mr. L. C. Kicks,
and out of which he drank during his army
life. In those days it was coffer only occa
sionally. and parched [lean, meal or chicory
all the time. Fourteen kinds of coffee
liave been made in that pot.
Saturday a gentleman aged 50 walked into
Winship & Callaway's store, and going up
to Mr. Pitt Baldwin extended his hand and
said: “You have not seen me in twenty-five
years, and you don't know me.” Mr. Bald
win viewed him for a moment and replied:
"Yes. I do, you are George Van Valken
lierg,” aud so it was. He had changed
greatly, of course, but Mr. Baldwin remem
bered him, though he had not seen hhii since
thev were Volunteers together in the arinv.
There are in tlie show window of Mr. J.
E. IVells’ jewelry store, two figures that
will be an interesting sight to the old vet
erans and to tlie sons of veterans as well.
One is a Macon Volunteer in 1881. He has on
one of the handsome uniforms of that time,
dark blue with white shield, and barrel cap
with German silver visor and mountings.
The other figure is a Macon Volunteer of
18(55. He has on the gray jacket and pants
and little cap. The coat and pants were
worn at the close of the war, the latter by
Lieut. G. C. Connor, who had them on when
wounded, aud the ragged hole iu the waist
band shows where the bullet went in that
entered his side. The young soldier has a
small dainty moustache, and the
old soldier has a full beard. He is the pic
ture of hard times, but he was a soldier
fighting for his country, all thesame. Upon
him is strapped the sack and canteen that
went through four years of the struggle
ami near him is a battle flag that w-as
waved aloft over the Volunteers as they
fought on the battlefields of Virginia. The
two figures are studies in their way, and
Lieut. Wells has made masterpieces of them.
The old veterans who will be here this week
will see them; and only a glance is neces
sary to make memory scamper back to the
times when a square meal was as big a
curiosity as President Cleveland is now.
A THREATENED SUIT
Growing Out ol the Trip of the Cadets
to Atlanta Last Week.
An unfortunate affair happened on the
occasion of the return of the Southern
Cadets, of Macon (Ga.), from Atlanta Wed
nesday night. The cadets had a special
car, and had placed a guard at each door to
prevent people from entering. Several
did enter from the windows, however,
among them some ladies, but as there
were nearly seats enough for the
company, they were allowed to remain.
On the platform were quite a number of
gentlemen, among them John D. Hough, of
the Macon Oil anl Fertilizer Company.
The night was very inclement, and Mr.
Hough tried to get into the car, but was met
at the door by one of the guards with his
gun at fixed bayonets, and told that the car
was specially reserved for the cadets. Just
here there areoonflioting statements. It is
claimed that Mr. Hough, feeling that, as he
had paid his fare to ride on the train, he had
a right to a seat in a car, and simply tried
to got into the car out of the falling rain
and otherwise disagreeable position on the
platform, and was assaulted by the cadets.
On the other hand, it is claimed that Mr.
Hough grew very angry at being refused,
and endeavored to get down the ax which
the railroad company keeps at the end of
the car, but was prevented by one of the
The cadets, who were commanded by
Lieut. Kenan, say they had reserved the
car and the key hail been placed in their
hands, ami that Conductor Yates so decided
when applied to.
It is reported that Mr. Hough, who feels
himself aggrieved, will sue the Central rail
road for damages, and also prosecute certain
members of the company for assault.
From the Quiney ( Flu .) Herald.
Some talk has been going on asAto how
the great industries recent ly loom mg up in
our county, came about. The truth is that
they are due to Win. Bruce, as the fountain
source, more than to anybody else. It was
he who sent the samples of tobacco to Mr.
Chas. Vogt, of New York, of the firm of
Carl Vogt it Son, which induced that gentle
man to visit our county, and purchase a
crop of tobacco last November, from the
Shelters, who for many years have cultivat
ed the weed. It wius this act of Mr. Vogt
that caused the planting of the crop this
year, and it was the crop of this y*ar that
caused Receiver Duval to send out the in
telligent gentlemen, Messrs. Corry &
Kretschmar, whose reports of the growing
crops were of the most favorable character,
out of which grow the magnificent syndi
cate of the Florida Tobacco Producing and
Trading Company, backed by money,
brains, a powerful railroad organization,
the trade, and last, but not least, the good
will and confidence of our own jieople.
What has been done, and is being done, by
the syndicate, has to a great, extent, influ
enced Mr. Vogt's operations.
There have been small cigar factories, in
this place, sometimes one, and more, ever
since we can remember, and whatever in
fluences may have been exerted by them, in
this behalf, arc cheerfully accorded.
There is no doubt of the'fact that the plant
ing of tobacco by the Nicholsons, and
Shelters, for a good many successive years,
bail a great influence on'the mind of Mr.
William Bruce in cultivating it, and manu
facturing cigars. While a citizen of New
Zealand tic was informed that he was one of
the heirs of a large landed estate, in this
county, and lie came to get his share. For
u long time one of the heirs could not bo
found, and it. was then that he studied
tobacco, and after a satisfactory investiga
tion, ho became convinced of its commercial
value. Without any practical knowledge
on the subject, he talked with tobacco
growers, and read tobacco papers. Over
two years ago he planted pure Yuelta Aba jo
seed, raised a erop, made cigars, and liber
ally distributed them in many portions 0 f
the country. The cigars received the most
flatteriug testimonials, and thus was in
augurated the tobacco renuisance in Gadsden
county, which is now extending throughout

How a Pretty Atlanta Child Got a Kite*
From Mrs. Cleveland.
Last Tuesday the Presidential procession
passed by the magnificent ri sideiu* of Dr.
J. W. Rankin, on Copit‘l avenue in Allan
ta. The pavements w ere packed w ith peo
ple, and the crowd surged over into tne
sti-eet. leaving but a narrow space for the
procession to pass.
As the carriage containing Prc-ident and
Mist. Cleveland arrived iu front of the Ran
kin mansion a colored man carrying a
beautiful goiden-lmired 4-year-old girl in
his arms pushed h - way through tlie packed
crowd, amt before the policemen could stop
him 4tood at the President's carriage door.
The carnage was stopped, and the President
lifted tlie beautiful c hild up. As he did so
the child presented him with a photograph
of herself, tied with white satin ribbon,
with three exquisite pale blush roses and
with a superb gold pen inserted in the roses’
stems. Ilie President banded it to Mrs.
Cleveland, who Liv ed with evident pleas
ure ami kisreri the child. The President
then kissed the lovely little girl as be
banded her back to the man servant.
The nrocession seemed to have baited, and
the knightly e.-oi:. superbly mounted, set
up wild cheers as Mrs. Cleveland kissed fbe
Georgia girt, and the crowd, taking up the
cheers, made the air reverberate with glad
shouts. On the broad porch of Dr. Ran
kin's mansion, were sitting Dr. J. W. and
Mrs. Rankin an I family, anil Col. and Mrs.
H. J. Lamar, and Mrs. Edward McLaren,
of Macon, and other guests. As the Presi
dent’s cartage passed on, Mrs. Cleveland,
who had just read the cant attached to the
pkotograob, looked toward the noble South
ern man.-iin, smiled and bowed graciously
to those ou the porch.
On the card attached to the graceful gift,
was the following:
“For the President and Mrs. Cleveland,
with love. The picture of a little Georgia
girl, Valerie Lamar Rankin.”
The Beau Ideal of a Family Medicine.
A remedy which promptly and completely re
lieves ailments of such common occurrence as
indigestion, constipation, biliousness and disor
ders of a malarial type, is assuredly the beau
irtt-ai of a family medicine Such is Hostetter s
Stomach Bitters, which is not only capable of
eradicating these complaint*, but also counter
acting a tendency to kidney troubles, rheuma
tism and premature decadence of stamina.
Taking it "all round." awthe pi rase is. there is
probably not in existence so uselul. effectiveaml
agreeable a household panacea as the Bitters.
Nor is it les highly esteemed by the medical
profession thanby the families of America. Num
berless testimonials from professional sources
of irrefragable authenticity evince its merit.
The demand for it abroad, no loss than in the
land of its discovery, is certainly increasing,
