Griffin News: A gentleman of this city
relates an anecdote of Christinas experience
that illustrates a pbasj of negro character.
During the couple of weeks at the close of
last year his busine-s required the extra
services of a negro boy not otherwise em
ployed. Christmas came and the boy
banded his employer a bundle, saying that
it was a Christmas present. The gentleman
took it and being busy laid it aside with
out looking at it, but a few days later was
rather taken aback by finding it was
a pair of sc. socks. Hi forgot about the
incident until New Year’s day, when he
paid the boy off and discharged him; but he
still lingered and Anally said, “Boss, I guv
you a Christmas present, what you gwine
to give me for New Year’s?” His boss took
down the socks, again nicely rolled up, and
handed them to him The boy unrolled
them, looked at them a moment and cast a
reproachful glance at the white man, but
left without saying a word.
Wrightsville Headlight: If “ignorance

Dr. J. W. Flanders, a prominent physician
of our town, was summoned to see a patient
several miles in the country. On arriving
he found his patient to be a youug woman
threatened with an attack of fever, on the
discovery of which the learned M. D. filled
several tap ules with quinine, ami
leaving instructions with the nurse,
an elderly lady, about the time
to give the medicine, etc., he departed. A
few days later he again visited his patient,
now greatly improved—almost well, in fact
Tarrying n few minutes he arose to leave,
when the old lady thrust her hand into her
dress pocket and fishing out the contents,
walked up to the doctor mid said: “Sny,
doctor, here’s yer little bottles; mighty cute
little things they are, too.” The medicine
man was completely paralyzed when he
discovered the empty capsules, and was told
their contents hud been gougixl out re
spectively and given “straight.” The old
lady was doubtless under tho impression
they were in the bill of costs, and she had
best “return the bottles.”

Sixteen miles south of Palatka, by the St.

Satsuma. Just south of and adjoining this

orange grove of 1,500 trees of different
varieties of oranges, mandarins and tan
gerines. The trees are literally loaded with
fruit; the oranges hang in clusters like
grapes, and the clusters are as large as-a
water pail. Many of the limbs are bent
over from the weight of the fruit so that
the orarges lay on the ground. This grove
belongs to Dr. J. D. Heniou, of Rochester,
N. Y., and is unquestionably the finest
grove in the State of its ago.
A cow belonging to Col J. H. Weeks, of
Mikesville, Columbia county, dropped a calf
Monday, which exhibited a strange freak of
nature. It had two heads and eight legs
and feet. It was a very fine sized calf, very
broad where the neck is joined to tho body,
and from this broad neck depended two
heads, each with two eyes, two ears, one
mouth and nostrils; in fact, two complete
heads hung the same as any cow’s head.
The hind legs at the upper part of the thigh
were single, but just above the knee they
divided, forming two complete legs to each,
of equal length, with lower hock joints and
hocls. The front legs also divided above
the knee joint, forming four front legs,
making in all, as stated above, two beads
and eight legs, No one knows whether it
was alive or dead when dropped. When
found the calf was dead and somewhat torn

THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1887.
THE LATE MRS. ASTOR.
! She is Said to Have I een a Native of
From the Few York World.
It was about the year 1840 that a wealthy
merchant of Savannah, On., Mr. Thomas
Gibbes, came North with his family to spend
the summer. The Astor House, built by Mr.
; William B. Astor, father of the present
head of the family, in 1830, was at that
time not only near the fashionable portion of
the city, but was the house which attracted
the custom of tho wealthy and fashionable
people from other places when visiting New
York. Mr. Gibbes and his family liecame
guests at the hotel. Mr. Astor, who was a
warm friend of Mr. Gihlies, invited the
Southern merchant and his daughter Au
gusta to pay a visit at his country place at
Rhinebeck on the Hudson. Here nis son,
Mr. John Jacob Astor, then a young man
of 20, met the fnir Southern maiden and
their acquaintance soon ripened into friend
ship and then into love, l'heir engagement
was announced the following winter and
they were married about 1845. The only fruit
of tho union, a son, Mr. William Waldorf
Astor, ex-Mmister to Italy, was bom the
following year. The young bride became
nt once a great favorite in her husband’s
family and was especially liked by her
father-in-law, Mr. William B. Astor. A slen
der brunette, she had the soft voice and cul
tivated manners of the refined Southern
women of her day. She had received a re
markably thorough education and her gifts,
added to her charm of manner and person,
made her nt once a prominent figure in the
comparatively small cirelo of New York
society of that day, irrespective of her hus
band's wealth and position. From the first
she became interested in charitable work,
and her name w'as inscribed high on the list
of the donors to the charities of the time.
As years went by and Mrs. Astor advanced
in life her interest in charities only increased.
One of her last acts was the bestowal of
funds to erect the new Cancer Hospital, re
For some twenty-five years past Mrs.
John Jacob Astor lias been tacitly recog
nized as the leader of New York society.
She never courted or sought the position,
but it became hers naturally, as the feinl
nine head of the then wealthiest and most
influential family in New York society.
Her sister-in-law, Mrs. William Astor,
formerly Miss Sehermerhom, has been
much more a participant in the livelier gay
eties than Mrs. John Jacob Astor, but the
latter’s name has been considered indis
pensable to head the list of patronesses at
all fashionable entertainments whether she
was present or not. Her cards were all in
scribed Mrs. Astor, to designate her posi
tion as head of the family, and her name
was thus placed on tho lists afore
said. A place on her visiting list
has also always been esteemed as
an evidence of a person’s assured social
position. Of late years she lias rarely beert
present at any of the Delmonico balls, save
now and then a Patriarchs’, and her favor
ite style of entertainment has been large
and fi irmal dinners, given every week at
her residence at Fifth avenue and Thirty
third street during the winter season, and
at her beautiful villa, Beaulieu, at Newport,
during the summer. An invitation to one
of these dinners has always been esteemed
as an honor, and Mrs. Astor liked to gather
at her table men and women of cultivation
and ability, and chose her guests more for
these qualities than for their mere position
or aptitude for society chit-chat. She was
very tenacious of old customs, and has been
one of the warmest supporters of the annual
charity ball ever since it ceased to be a dis
tinctively fashionable event. For many
years she led the opening march at this ball
with Mr. Arthur Leary or Mr. Edward
Cooper. To the last, Mrs. Astor also main
tained the custom of receiving on New
The death of Mrs. Astor comes almost at
the height of one of the gayest seasons New
York society lias known in many years,
and will have an immediate and marked
effect upon it. It will withdraw from all
gayety not only her immediate and large
family connection, but also a large circle of
more distant relatives and numerous warm
friends to whom she iiad become endeared.
The news of her death perceptibly marred
the brilliancy of the ball given at Delmoni
co’s last night by Mr. Edward Livingston
to introduce bis ilaughter, and will have a
still more marked effect on the Patriarchs’
ball of to-night. While it was known that
Mrs. Astor was seriously ill, no fears of her
death had been entertained, even by her
relatives, and her death is a decided shock
to society. Of course Mrs. William Astor’s
ball, which had been announced to take
iilaee on Jau. 9, in honor of her son, John
Is cob Astor, Jr., who was recently grain
ated at Harvard, will be abandoned, and
several other entertainments projected by
members of the Astor family and connec
tions will not take place. The loss of so
prominent and influential a family to society
even for awhile, especially as Mrs. William
Astor had begun to entertain this winter for
the first time in three years, will be greatly
Mrs. William Astor will now succeed to
Mrs. John Jacob Astor’s position as the
acknowledged leader of New York society.
Mrs. William Astor was Miss Sehermerhom,
the daughter of the late Abraham Sellermer
horn. She is a handsome woman and is
also noted for her gracious manners and
her thoughtful charities. A younger woman
than Mrs. John Jacob Astor, she is much
more fond of gayety, and is a familiar
figure at the opera an l at all fashionable en
tertainments. She has been in poor health
for some two years past, but has
lately entirely recovered. Her eldest
daughter, Mrs. James J. Van Alen, died
about six years ago. Her remaining children
are Min. Roosevelt Roosevelt, formerly
Miss Helen Astor, Mrs. Colaman Drayton,
formerly Miss Augusta Astor, Mrs. Orme
Wilson, formerly Miss Carrie Astor. and
Mr. John Jacob Astor, Jr. Mr. and Mrs.
William Astor reside in the large red brick
mansion at Fifth avenue and Thirty-fourth
street. They huve also a large summer
resideneo at Newport and a handsome place
at Rhinebeck-on-the-Hudson, where they
pass the spring and autumn months.
A Saint *.mong Taxpayers.
From the Forsyth ( Oa.) Advertiser.
Dan Bell, a colored citizen near Boling
broke, was double-taxed as a defaulter, the
tax amounting to $1 83. Some friend of
Dan’s paid the Collector this tax at Boling
broke Friday. On Saturday Dan came to
Forsyth, wont to Collector Watts and said
the settlement was wrong; that he owned
more property than ho amount for which
he had been double-taxed, and he wanted to
pay the tax on that. Dan then and there
rendered in sufficient property to produce
tax amounting to $4 79, which he cheer
fully paid. We vote the blue ribbon to Dan

From the Covington Ja.) Mar.
A writer in tho Butts County Argus evi
dently thinks he has discovered a snuff mine,
in an extensive rock bed, somewhere in that
county. This reminds us that there used to
tie a story about an old lady breaking her
apron string while trying to carry Stone
Mountain in her apron, mid spilling the
mountain out in DeKnlbcounty. That same
old lady must have gone to Butts county
with an apron full of rocks and spilled them
out about Cedar Rock and lost her snuff
box at the same time. Verily this is a great
country and a great people. But the snuff
mine ought to bo “rubbed.”

A THIEF IN THE CLOSET.
Forced to Disgorge by a Plucky Old
Lady of 60.
I-Vom the Few York Star.
Mrs. Abliy Euster, an old lady who came
from London two weeks ago, had quite an
adventure Monday evening with a thief at
tho boarding bouse, No. 112 East Twenty
seventh street, where she is stopping. Mrs.
Euster is well-to-do, and she owns a good
deal of jewelry..
The boarding house is kept by Mrs.
Mosher, and Mrs. Euster occupies the front
apartments on the second floor. She is
nearly GO years of age, though still hearty
and possessed of considor:4lo strength.
She kept her jewelry and money in a plush
box in the bureau drawer in hor room.
Monday evening at about 0:30, while all
the boarders were at supper in the base
ment, a thief got into the house and made
his way up to Mrs. Euster’s apartments.
Ho got in through the basement door.
The iron gate had been left open, and on
Saturday night someone, evidently an ac
complice, smashed the glass panels in the
inner door and the thief was enabled to put
his hand through and open the lock. He
went quietly up stairs andfouudthe door of
Mrs. Euster’s room open.
Tho marauder searched tho bureau
drawers and found the jewelry box and
some money which he took out. Just then
he heard Mrs. Euster’s footsteps on the
stairs, and as she was coming through the
hall ho slipped into a closet, and closed the
Mrs. Euster found the bureau drawers
open and everything upset. She missed her
jewelry box, and concluding that sho bad
been visited by a thief, went to the closet to
see if her sealskin sacque was She
could not turn tho knob of the door, but
made a second attempt, when it opened
easily, and she discovered the thief.
Mrs. Euster did not scream and fall into
hysterics, but she grabbed tho fellow by the
wrist and twisted her arm around His back.
Ho made some resistance, but she held on to
him pluckily and dragged him out into the
room. She nulled him over toward the bed
and made him empty his pockets of the
stolen jewelry. The thief did it reluctantly,
but when be hesitated Mrs. Euster just
twisted his arm a little more and he came
In the meantime the plucky little woman
had called for help, and Mrs. Mosher and a
boarder named Mr. Reid went to her assist
ance. They held the thief until Officer
Ergatt arrived and took him into custody.
At the East Twenty-second street police
station he gave his name as Frederick Shel
don, age 21, and residence at No. 246 First
avenue. In his possession was found a gold
collar button, which Mrs. Euster identified
as hers. The empty jewelry box was found
in the closet. Capt. Clinchy sent a report of
the case to police headquarters.
Mrs. Euster, when seen after her struggle
with the thief, did not appear to be suffering
aiiy from her successful effort to capture
the marauder. She described the manner in
which she discovered him, and how she
held on to him and made him give up the
