Cuthbert Liberal: We heard a gentle
man say the other day that he was gradu
ally converting his farm into a sheep ranehe.
The wool from a sheep is estimated to be
worth $1 a year. Five hundred head
would pay a nice little sum into the family
exchequer and then not monopolize a man’s
time by any means.

Albany.Veies. A gentleman of an adjoin
ing county, who once owned and operated
a grist mill, tells a go xl one illustrative of
negro philosophy. He was at Ids mill ono
day, when up rode a darkey with a sack of
corn on his head, while he bestrided a lean
and tired looking mule. “What are you
doing with that sack of corn on your head ?”
queried a spectator. "Well, boss, I got
’shamed making dis mule tote me and de
corn too, so I takes the corn and carries it
on my head.” •
Dr. Tucker, of Brunswick, amputated W.
Fennick’s left hand a few days ago. The
operation was made necessary by the acci
dental discharge of a gun. It occurred on
St. Simons, and in this manner: Someone
called Fennick’s attention to a hawk that
was lurking around his residence, and he
went into the house and grabbed his gun by
the muzzle, and in getting it out struck the
hammer against something ami it went off,
blowing his left hand nearly off, so that it
had to be amputated.
A young man named Seph Itichetson lost
his life at Warceboro Wednesday. lie
boarded the train at Pearson and paid his

under some other mistaken impression,
rushed to the platform and jumped from

ground, and struck his head against a cross
tie, crushing his skull, from the effects of
which he died Thursday morning.

third interest in the “old copper mine prop
erty.” Brown & Teasly now own a two
thirds interest in the property and parties
in Savannah the other one-third interest.

and N. J. & T. A. Hammond, representing
several New York creditors, appeared be
fore Judge Marshall J. Clarke ami filed a
creditor’s bill against the firm of I. C. Band
man & Cos. They asked the court to ap

Marcus Kunz. an aged German tailor,
who has moved from Perry to Hawkinsvilie
is now using in his shop In Hawkinsvilie a
pine table that he had mado in Parry in
1852, just thirty-five years ago. He made
the uniforms for many of the young men
who went to the war from Houston county
in 18*51. He says he has lost thousands of
dollars by the credit system, and ono of the
debts he will hardly ever forgel is that duo
by a gentleman for a suit of Slothes that he
wore while representing his county in the
Griffin Sun: There are a number of small
farms around Griffin, many of them owned
by young men of the city. Small farms are
what we want. There is not a young man
in the city but should have a small farm in
which to invest his little surplus. If he
thinks that he has no surplus, let him buy a
farm and in a few months he wifi have ac
cumulated until his farm is well appointed,
and he will not miss the cost of it. Agri
culture is the hope of the country, and our
young men must not only encourage it by
precept, but by example.
The cotton yard at the Central railroad
depot, at Wavnesboro, has boon enlarged.
Nothing has been done with the ruins of
the bnck warehouse and the walls stand as
if on guard. It is thought, however, that
the old walls >vill be used to build anew
warehouse upon. Seventeen thousand bales
of cotton and abiut SIOO,OOO worth of gen
eral merchandise, mail and express, are
shipped from Waynesboro annually, which
amount to more than all the other receipts
and shipments together from all depots be
tween Milien and Augusta.
There is a movement among some of the
moneyed men of Atlanta to erect a large
plant for building and repairing cars, and
manufacturing nuts ami bolts of all kinds.
The policy of railroads as to repairing is
changing' Years ugo they quit building
thoir locomotives. Nexi they quit building
their freight curs. Now they nud they can
have them repaired by private corporation*,
more cheaply than they can repair them
themselves. Gen. Alexander say- the rail
roads have enough to do to keep their cars
running without having to watch a large
force of workmen for repairs.
Covington (Gu. ) Enterprise: A corre
spondent from Doraville semis ns this item:
“Many of your rea-lers remember hearing
one year ago of the little eighteen months’
old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William A.
Chestnut, near this place, falling in the
well, a distance of sixty feet, and the mother
jumping in after it, getting it and keeping
it on top of twelve feet of water for near
half an hour, when they were drawn up
with little injury to either. On the morn
ting of Oct, 21 the same child, while playing
near the fire, fell into it and her her clothes
nearly all burned off and her body was also
badly burned. The mother l-ing near

The trustees have decided to sell the Tub
man property, possibly the most desirable
in Augusta, consisting of the Tubman man
sion, the lot adjoining the office occupied by
John Jay Cohen, the adjoining store, the
office of Golden Khind anil James I’. Jack
son, running through to Reynolds street.
They will sell at public outcry, on Dee. 15.
The terms of the sale are to be
one-tenth cash, the balance in
twenty years, in thirty-eight an
nual payments, with 7 per cent in
terest. It is rumored that the Commercial
Club will become the purchasers of the Tub
man mansion. It is their intention, if they
purchase the property, to convert it into
the handsomest club house in the South.
Scott Davis’ little boy was hit by a snake,
at Lawrenceville. last Sunday evening. He
and one or two other boys nail gone over
about the negro churcli to get chestnuts,
and they saw something go into a hole and
supposed it was a ground squirrel. They
concluded to catch it, anil were trying with
a stick to make it come out. The hole lx>-
longod to t he snake, and itdefendod itself by
striking back. It bit Mr. Davis’ son
through the thumb. He at once returned
home and Dr. Winn gave him prompt at
tention, but the little fellow suffered ter
ribly, the poison having taken considerable
effect before any antidote was applied. He
will probably recover. The snake was
about 3 feet long, and known as the rattle
snake pilot, one of the most poisonous
snakes of this country.
Columbus Enquirer: Policeman Cox was
at Montgomery to see Mr. and Mrs. Cleve
land, and he returned a sorer and a happier
man. Thousands took him to be the Presi
dent and heartily shook his hand. At Pike’s
road, when the train was in waiting for the
track to be cleared, the report got abroad
that Cleveland was on board, anil Mr. Cox,
taken for the President, was borne out on
the shoulders of the men and placed on a
passenger coach, and was loudly calk'd on
for a speech. Mr. Cox. fully equal to the
emergency, addressed the crowd in fine Imi
tation of the Presiitent. He dwelt at length
on the material weulth of the South and the
rapid development of the same. He spoke
of the hospitality of the Southern people,
and closed with a fine eulogy on Alabama.
After the speech he shook hands with the
crowd, boarded the train again, and was
soon speeding to Columbus. When ho
reached the city his arm was so sore from
violent handshaking that he was unable to
go on duty.
Brunswick Advertiser and Appeal: We
call attention to the advertisement of a Sa
vannah broker calling for city of Bruns
wick bonds. An opportunity is here offered
any one desiring to realize on their bonds,
though the average holder is not over anx
ious to part with them. They are a capital
investment, paying 7 per cent, interest , and
are quoted above par. How different from
a few years ago, when the interest could
not be paid, the city was harassed with
suits and judgments, and the bond holders
wore sick of Brunswick and her bonds.
But the bond compromise and settlement
with her creditors, whereby the city’s in
debtedness was reduced from over S2OO,(XX)
to SBO,OOO, the town commons property be
ing accepted by the bondholders in lieu of
the difference, placed us in a position to
meet our interest promptly, and our bonds
now float above par. A sinking fund of
SI,OOO is also yearly paid into the hands of
commissioners to "buy up and retire that
amount of bonds, provided same can lie ad
vantageously purchased, but at the last call
for bonds no offere, if we mistake not, were
as low as par.
Sylvania Telephone: On Tuesday even
ing of last week the train oil the Sylvania
railroad was delayed in returning from
Rocky Ford on account iff defective work
ing of the pumps to the engine, which
caused stopping at various places along the
line between stations to get water into the
boiler, and it was long after dark before it
reached Sylvania. When the train was
somewhere between Waters'station and the
Ogeecliee Creek Mr. T. C. Moore, who was
formerly engineer on the road, got on and
asked to be put off at Waters’ station. The
bell line being detached and Conductor
Wells not having a lantern, having loaned
his to Engineer Meldrim, lie could not sig
nal for tiie tram to stop. Frieud Tom
however, had no idea of lieing carried on to
Sylvania, anil, without a word to Conduc
tor Wells as to his intention, went to the
front of the passenger coach, and when it
was slacked in going down grade, just past
the station toward Svl vania, he drew the
coupling pin out anil ran back to tiie break,
put it on, stopfasl the coach, got off and dis
appeared in the dark. The engineer moved
on to Sylvania, without knowing that the
coach was left, and on account of the scar
city of water in the tank he was unable to
go back for the coach. Conductor Wells

and two bodies up to a point just above the

are natural, but the head is rather large
and ill-proportioned. At the hack of the

Montieello Constitution: It is conceded
that from (500 to 1,000 pounds of mer
chantable tobacco per acre can be grown in
Jefferson county—in fact, Mr. Bruce, on
Mr. Kedney’s farm in this county, realized
the past season from five acres of land *5,000
pounds of tobacco. Tills tobacco, if placed
upon the market, will command from $1,500
to sl,Boo—from S3*MI to $3150 per acre. The
same land—five acres—if planted in cotton
would probably not yield exceeding 1,250
jxiuntLs of lint cotton, 250 jxiunds to the
acre, and if it should bring Bc. per pound
the sum total realized from the five acres
would be SIOO. It requires not exceeding
six months labor and attention to cultivate
and prepare tiie tobacco for market. It re
quirt's ten months of the twelve to culti
vate, pick, gin and market the cotton.
A mule ran away at Tallahassee Wednes
day afternoon, going down the steep hill on
Clinton street, and dumped a wagon load of
negroes into the street near the crossing
boulevard, in front of the residence of Henry
Benreuter. The owner of the team, Richard
Hndnall, a colored farmer from Gadsden
county, had his neck broken anil died in
stantly. His sister and a nephew were
badly bruised and cut about the face,
but not seriously. Another occupant
of the wagon jumped out unhurt. The
team got away and went on at lightning
speed toward their home near Midway.
The accident, it is said, was the result of
too much bad whisky. Hndnall, it is stated,
had iinbilxxl pretty freely and all started
out of town in high glee. The team was
finally captured, the wagon mended up, the
body of the dead man placed in it after the
inquest and the survivors drove sorrowfully
A young man named Sears, claiming to
be representing Finlay & Brunswick, drug
gists, of New Orleans, La., arrived in Pen
sacola a few days ago, and set about drum
ming the town for orders. He sold W. A.
D’Aiemberte a handsome bill, made a con
tract to advertise a specialty in the Daily
Commercial, and then asked Mr. D’Aiem
berte to walk as l'ar os the bank with him,
as lie wanted a little money and would have
to be identified before he could cash a draft.
Mr. D’Aiemberte told the fellow that
as ho was not personally acquainted
with him, he must decline to
be a party to tho identification,
and Seal's tixik his leave not altogether
pleased. From D’Alemherte’s, Sears went
to H. C. Cushman and tried the same
game. Mr. Cushman was equally imper
vious, and Sears left the city. Subsequent
ly Mr. Cushman received a communication
from Messrs. Finlay & Brunswick, who had
gotten wind of Sears’ transactions else
where, informing him to beware of the fol
low, as he was a fraud of the first water.
Sears has not been heard fi'om since.
At the thirteenth regular meeting of the
Peniel Horticultural Society, a few days
ago, the offices for the ensuing year were
duly filled as follows: President, Dr. Cyrus;
Vice-President, Parson Becks; Treasurer,
Parson Thomas; Recording Secretary,
Capt. R. R. Brukoman, and Corresponding
Secretary, Ix*wis Morris. Mr. Leyvraz in
troduced the subject of asparagus culture.
He thinks it would pay well in Florida, that
is, to cultivate it for the New York
market. He has known it to sell there
early in the spring from PI 50 to $1 75 a
bunch. It is easy to cultivate, and once
put into the ground, anil properly cared for
will make full yields for thirty years or
more. After first setting out its cultivation
requires very little more work than that of
corn. It is a hearty feeder, however, and
needs good fertilization to produce the best
results, the largest shoots. The demand
during the early season of production pre
vailing here in Florida has never
yet been fully supplied. It grows
very fast and yields enor
mously, and continues a regular supply
for a space of six to eight weeks. Frost,
even in the productive season, is of but little
detriment. It will begin to yield the third
year from the seed and thereafter a full an
imal crop, for almqpt a life time. Mr.
Strange lias seen it grow in Floriila, and it
did well. Mr. Brakeman knows of healthy
phiiits ut home (Ohio,) fifty years old, is
familiar with its culture, and thinks an acre
of ground could lx* made to produce annu
ally SI,OOO worth. Mr. Leyvraz has a
thrifty plant on his place ten years old
which has had no attention other than whqt
accident brought it.
Tallahassee Tallahnssecan: Two weary,
foot-sore and travel-stained pilgrims hailing
from the rural districts of Alabama, and
bound for tho “El Dorado,” in the Land of
Flowers, landed in Tallahassee lust Wednes
day and put up at the restaurant of Charles
Munch. The eldest looked to be about 80
years of age; he had a dark, keen eye, and
wears the air of one of the boy hoys that
look out for number one. The other ap
peared to be a meek-yod, un
sophisticated specimen of a coun
try ypungster who had • not long
pussod his majority and had launched out
on the sea of life with more confidence than
experience. After taking in the sights of
the Capital City the two walked into the
store of Y. A. Levy, carefully selected SIOO
worth of notions, jewelry, etc., and ordered
them packed up, the older stranger saying
that ho would return before night with the
money for the goods, hut neither of them
came back that day. When Mr. Levy
reached his store at *5 o’clock Thursday
morning the meek-eyed youngster was there
anxiously looking for his partner and in
quiring if ho had paid for the good*. On
hearing that lie had not, the young man
became excited rushed off to the court house
for a warrant, and soon had Deputy Sheriff
Hopkins on the trail of the absconding nari,
ner. The fellow was captured at Monti
cello, brought back aud arraigned last Mon-
day before Judge West on a charge of ob
taining money under false pretense. It as
shown to the satisfaction of the court that
the two hail agree*! to put up SSO each, anil
start into business together. After select
ing the goods they walk "d-d. nvn tothoHtcjw
in front of Robert’s stable, and there the
junior partner turmsi over to the
senior SSO as his share of the capital
stock. Instead of going back to Levy a
store anil paying lor the goods as agreed on,
the senior partner skipped out for other
fields, and it seems that tlx* unsuspecting
junior did not realize* the situation until tlio
next morning. Failing to give the
required SIOO bond the busiuss man
ager of this enterprising firm now
nestles behind the bars of the
county jail. His confiding partner goes out
in search of the “Eldorado,” with empty
pockets but a larger store of experience.
They gave their names as C. F. Sappington
and M. V. Windham, respectively. Only
$27, was found on the former when cap
