Rome Tribune: A certain gay and giddy
young society man of Rome went out riding
not long since with a fair young equestri
enne of a leading avenue. In course of
conversation they touched upon the leading
subject of the dnv—the Anarchists. He
mentioned to his fair companion, in a care
less sort of way, that he hud been North
at school and had heard and read of a
family bv the name of Anarchist, who, for
some crime, he did not know what, were
being tried. He told her that there were
seven of them —the old man, Spies, Lingg,
Fischer, Schwab, Engel and Fichlen, and
that the old man and two of his sons were
hanged, two of the other brothers sent to
the penitentiary, and the last one commit
ted suicide in jail. He said it was bad
enough to hang the sons, but to hang a
preacher, and an old ma , at that, as they
did Farson Anarchist, was too horrible to
When AV. M. Lipscomb approached the
jail at Franklin Wednesday morning, to
his surprise, the thievish AA’oody was gone.
He had escaped through un opening in the
floor and passed out at the recently disabled
rear door of the lower cells, it was readily
discovered that lie had help from tie out
side. At the bottom of the outer door there
is an opening, burned only n few weeks ago
by other escaping prisoners. Into this too
assisting party crawled, pried open tho
wooden door and broke the lock of the grate
door. It was then quite an easy matter to
escape. The rocks in the opening in the
second floor recently made by l>it Bcott
were pushed away and the prisoner had
nothing to do but to squeeze out. Poinu
McKenley, the negro occupying the cell
with Woody, refused to leave the jail, and
told tln> tale of the esca|ie. AVoody was as
sisted by George Houston, himself a noto
rious juil bird.
Col. W. 3. Lowe, President of Peniten
tiary Company No. 2. was seen at Atlanta
Saturday, and asked about the fine imposed
by Gov. Gordon upon the lessees for \ :o ! s
tion of the lease contract. Cos). Lowe stated
that there had not been any meeting of the
lessees since the imposition of tun fine, and
he could not speak officially; but as far as
No. 2 was concerned, bo holding 87L* per
cent, of tiie stock of that company, he
thought he could speak. The fine, or his
part of it, would be paid, but the payment
would be made under written protest. Col.
Lowe declaring tout the testimony clearly
showed that ho was in no way responsible
for the whipping ut Bingham’s camp.
Bingham, the whipping boss, was an ap
pointee of Capt. T. J. James, whose part of
the tine would pot exceed S2OB, while Col.
Lowe, holding a much larger interest, and
in no way concerned in Bingham's appoint
ment, would have to pay about #2,800. Col.
Lowe thought that all the lessees would

Avery ridiculous scene was enacted oi

Orange City Times: It would notbeamiss
and would probably do good if the present
grand jury, now in session at Enterprise,
would investigate tho methods of the board
ing house keepers of Enterprise. The town
has no hotel open, and it does seem that
somo of these boarding houses have a
method that is systematic in swindling a
man out of 50c. for a so-called dinner that
a nice sandwich would lie far preferable. It
is not very tempting to sit liefore a dinner
consisting' mostly of toothpicks and water,
neither is it a very good advertisement for
Enterprise to keep the county seat.

At Pensacola, fire was discovered in the
rear of the residence of L. M. Merritt, on
North Bazlin street Friday night at 11:45
o'clock. Though not literally reduced to
ashes, the house is a total wreck. It was a
frame structure, and tho flames had ad
vanced so far when discovered that it was
only with tlie greatest effort that Mr.
Merritt moved his several small children
and his old aunt, (08 years old) from the
second story. The fire is supposed to have
been the work of an incendiary, as there
had been no tiro in that portion of the houso

too close the bear would stop, and then it

By dint of hard driving the bear was forced

her rash act was done deliberately and
calmly. Nux vomica was found in the
room, and having taken the drug to end her
life, put her night clothes on, laid down on

taken began to do its fatal work. In the
room was found a beautifully written note

jewelry and clothes of her's she desired to
be sent to schoolmates named in the note.
She began the note picturing the dark side
