Longstreet. a village in the eastern portion
of Pulaski county, over a supposed ghost,
who would, at a stated time and place, as
tonish the travelers by the sudden appear
ance of falling sticks and rocks, many of
them being of immense size. Exaggerated
rumors were brought to Hawkinsville by
the over-credulous of that community. This
ghost, like all others, had its fatal ending.
A party of about twenty of
the best young men of Cochran,
on Saturday night last, made a
visit to the scene of action with a view of
catching the ghost, in which they were emi
nently successful, as it was an easy matter
to locate the ghosts in the persons of Jim
Daniels, an old man, his son Gua and a boy
by the name of Gerty. Their object seemed
to be to create a sensation, then to charge
for the appearance of the ghost, as one of
them stated that Saturday night would be
the last free open-air concert. Gus Daniels
was caught with a large number of sticks
and rocks concealed on his persons.

came down to go over the battle grounds
in and around Adairsville, and to carry
back with them any souvenirs of their
visit that they might so find.
They expressed great desire, as
well as curiosity to see a genuine Coufedl
orate uniform worn in service, and their
demands were readily acceded t >, for, upon
being invited into the parlor of the Stanton
House there, “all tattered and torn," with
bullet marks in plenty, and a Yank's bullet
sewed to the coat, proof that the wearer
wae wounded with ball—was presented to
our old-time opponent* a Confederate
Colonel’s uniform. They were pleased be
vond expression, and neat speeches, full of
the bonus of the Union and the South, were
made by them. Afterward the souvenirs
and an emblem of the olive branch were
given in the way of a piece of this Confed

painted badge of the Union, underneath
which were the words “Cos. C., 7th 111.

At Gninosville Monday an old colored man
by the name of Taylor was returning from
a hunting expedition and wa< passing
through a dense thicket near the rear of
Judge King’s anil Capt. Huff 's fields at the
point where State street terminates in a
swamp, w hen lie came upon a place where
It was evident thnt a small hole had been
dug and only a portion of the earth put back
in refilling it. The old man at once began
to scratch off the fresh sand, and after going
to a depth of three inches came to a box
which no pulled up and examined. On re
moving the top, which was not nailed, lie
discovered that it contained the remains of
a partly decomposed white child. He at
once replaced the box as lie had found it,
and coming on to town, reported what he
had found. Sheriff VVienges notified Jus
tice A. J. Cone, who impaneled a jury and
proceeded to the mysterious- grave
to investigate the matter. An
investigation showed that the child was a
white girl baby, that it had been buried a
month or six weeks, and that it had been
alive after birth, as it was fully dressed in
baby attire, with an outside wrapping of
something that looked like the skirt, of a
woman’s dress. The improvised coffin was
a cracker box. about a loot deep and fifteen
inches in length. Although not twenty
feet from the city boundary line, the place
where the child was discovered is an unfre
quented and dreary place. That part of
State street is never traveled and it is
thickly grown up with hushes and weeds.
There can be but little doubt blit that the
child was murdered, perhaps to hide an
erring mother's shame. The matter will be
investigated as fully as possible by the jury',
which will re-convene this morning.
The Bt. Augustine Citizens’ Convention,
with its forty delegates, met Tuesday night
at the Board of Trade rooms. The meeting
was calks! to order by B. Genovar. Judge
M. R. Cooper was nominated temporary
Chairman and H. Gail laid Secretary. The
majority rule prevailed. As candidates for
Mayor the names of VV. M. Ingraham and
George S. Greeno were offered. This nomi
nation brought B. Genovt o his feet, and
he protested very strongly against the nomi
nation of Mr. Greeno. His remarks were
bitter attacks upon that gentleman’s
political record, raking up a polit
ical scandal of vears ago. The re
marks made fell painfully on the
ears of the assembled delegates and
it was regarded as extremely unfortunate
that an attack of this kind was made in a
convention that professed to tie .a purely
non-partisan meeting of citizens. Of the
ballots cast Ingraham received 30 votes and
Greeno 10. The following nominations
were made for the balance of the city offi
cers: Moody for City Clerk, on the first
ballot; Marshall I. V. Drysdaie for Tax
As lessor; C. F. Hopkins for Tax Collector,
on the fourth ballot. At this juncture Mr.
Greeno appeared at the convention, and
on permission of the chairman made
repiy to Mr. Genovar’s remarks,
denying them. \ lie received the
cheers of the audience. “I’ll meet you in
the plaza and prove what I sav,” replied
Mr. Genovar. After speaking Air. Greeno
walked out and the balloting was resumed.
J. AV. Allen was nominated by acclamation
for City Treasurer. Nominations for Aider
men were made as follows: First ward, F.
SV. Bruce; Second ward. Thomas Leminis:

CUT OFF HIS PIGTAIL.
English Sailors Save a Chinese Culprit
From His Countrymen.
J. Keane's "Mere Shakings."
The ship was still three days from Hong
Kong, the first pluce at which the prisoner
could be handed over to the proper authori
ties. To avoid a certain disturbance among
the Chinamen forward the quarter-deck
deliberations resulted in an announcement
fore and aft the ship tiiat the execution,
with all due form and ceremony as practiced
under the English flag, would take place at
noon the next day, and the sentence
was communicated impressively to the
prisoner, through an interpreter, in
the presence of all Iris country
men, who demonstrated most cordial
approval. As the hour approached next
day preparations went forward solemnly
round the forehatch. The butcher's block
was laid amidships, the carpenter’s broad
ax by its side, Stages for spectators rigged,
the first class passengers, numbering about
a hundred, assembled on the bridges, boats
and houses near, with all the ship’s people.
The fore rigging ami all the forepart of "the
deck swarmed with Chinamen eager for
vengeance. At noon the ship’s bell began
to toll. Shortly after the prisoner was led
out between two quartermasters: when
near the block he was made to stand while
the purser, in a surplice, read out the first
verse of “The Wearing of the Green,”
which was then sung by 200 voices,
yet, though knowing his time had come,
the culprit showed no remorse or repent
ance. Our victim’s countenance remained
impamive and inscrutable as though molded
in putty. The last service over, thres
quartermasters flung down the Chinaman
on his face, his head on the centre of the
broad butcher’s block. One man seized his
queue while two held his feet, pulling with
all their strength against one another. The
poor wretch’s neck was stretched till it
went “crick.” The chief officer raised the
ax, flourished it round and round his head,
threatening to bring it down time after
time until suspense bad worked onlookers
up to the pitch of agony. Suddenly
down swept the broad blade a rasp anil
thud; to the opposite side of the deck flew
the men who had been extending the body.
The ax had severed the Chinaman’S tail hn
inch from his head. A prolonged, disgusted
exclamation of “Hi-i-i-i” went, up from the
crowd forward, oxoressing supreme con
tempt for the skill of our executioner, and
for our national manner of performing,
which even tho prisoner seemed to share,
for the sneer with which he regained his
feet was the first indication of
interest in the matter lie had
displayed. In the confusion following
the prisoner was led back to confine
ment. Not much difficulty was experienced
in convincing the others that by English
law two attempts to execute tbe same man
could not bo made on the same day So
convinced of the bona fide character of the
exhibition had they been that they gave no
more trouble, and ultimately taking into
consideration that the loss of tho tail is so
much more calamitous than the loss of the
head—they consented to the man being
given over to the law in Hong Kong, where
he was dealt wit H in a way less preferable
than death to him, being condemned to live
a convict without a fail.

HEADLESS AND HORRIBLE.
It Was Midnight and Ma Wing Froze
From the .Vive 5 ork Times.
The biting north wind whistled through
Mott street yesterday in a blood chilling
fashion. The Celestials who throng the
thoroughfare drew their legs further up un
der their togas and shuddered visibly. Those
who had not made enough "monee" out, of
the week’s “washer” to indulge in the luxu
ry of grilled “ratee” were so miserable as to
Inline descript ion. Their lips were bine and
their teeth chattered. An idle observer
might have deemed this wholly due to the
cold. But it was not. it was terror A
headless ghost appeared at 18 Mott-streetnn
Friday night, and there has bi n untold
wretchedness in Chinatown ever since.
Ma VVing, a laundryman, was found
standing to windward of a telegraph pole
yesterday afternoon surveying IS—his board
ing house—with anything hut satisfaction,
MaAVing saw the ghost, and lias taken a dis
like to it. He will do anything to escape
seeing it, again. Mu Wing never harmed a
dress shirt in his life, and says lie lias a good
conscience. He does not drink hot waters,
and always adulterates his opium. Con
sequently bis statements are entitled to con
siderable credit As Ma VVing settled his
back comfortably against the pole and pre
pared to recount his adventures he was
speedily surrounded by a score or more of
his shivering compatriots who indorsed
everything he said. This was his tale:
“Qui La (the ghost) thin and tallee like
Melican man, all dlessed in white shirtee.
He come lound by 12 o’clock, when nfiee
sainee dark as lat tlap. Me lock my dior
and go to bed. He no open dlor, no wantee
ailee sainee Qui La. When I see him, big,
white, no bead, I scleain, and then he
gullump at me, and 1 luii likee ailee samee
dam foolee. Qui Lago through wall. Aliee
Wa Wing was not the only one who saw
the ghost. His description is corroborated
by others who board in the house, and all
agree that no more unique and clever ghost
ever visited these shoras No. 18 Mott street
is regarded as a haunted house, and its in
mates would rather perish in the keen north
wind than spend the night in the 1 warm
company of the headless spectre.
Enough weeds can grow along an ordi
nary fence row out of reach of the plow to
seed abundantly acres of laud, thus causing
a hundred times the necessary amount of
labor to keep the fence row clean. A
growth of weeds along a fence row, by
holding the moisture and keeping away the
sun and air, will cause a fence to rot in one
half the time it would if kept clean, thus
adding a tremendous tax to the farmer.
