This week’s issue of the Dahlonega Signal
gives a story of remarkable detail It
seems that eight or ten .year* ago a man
named Barnes was murdered near the line
of Fannin county, Georgia, and Polk county,
Tennessee, the man’s head being split open
with an ax, from which ho died in a short
time. Josepa B. Myers was suspected of
committing the murder and he fled from
the county, nobody knew where. He was
searched for, and a large reward was offered
for his arrest. Time jiassod and the murder
was forgotten, and the murderer was not
found. On Wednesday last a lawyer of
Maysville, Jackson county, accompanied
by a man calling himself Myers,
of the same county, came here with a
warrant against “Devil” Jim Higgms, of
this oountv, for kidnaping. The warrant
chained Higgins witli kidnaping a child
on Nov. 30 from Mrs. Myers. Bho was the
mother of the child by a former husband
named Ray. The child was a relative of
Higgins, and he wanted it; so he took it and
brought it to his home in this couuty.
Myers requested Marshal Townsend to ac
company him to assist in the enforcement of
the warrant or the recovery of the child.
Higgins lives about eight miles from Dah
lonega, and on arriving at the home of Hig
gins everything was in confusion. The two
men were met bv the whole Higgins family,
one of the boys Having a gun, another one
of the family an ax, and so on. Tho Mar
shal, who is also a constable, read the war
rant, when Higgins surprised the officer by
stating that Myers was the murderer of
Barnes and that he had fed and harbored him
many da vs when Myers was hiding from
arrest, 'f he officer was surprised, but hnv
ing a recollection of the murder, and also
having been told oefop# that Higgins had
fed and harbored Myers, he immediately
placed Myers under arrest, and summoned
Constable Walker, of that district, to assist
him. He then placed Myers under Walker’s
care and proceeded to ai re-t Higgins on tho
charge of kidnaping. The two prisoners
were brought to town and, Higgins having
agreed to give up the child, the warrant
was dismissed against him and Myers was
committed to jail. Myers acknowledged to
Sheriff Satterfield that he had hit Barnes
in the head with an ax in Touuessee, but did
it in self-defense. Others claim that the
murder was committed in Georgia. There
is some dispute, and the Sheriff is now in
vestigating the matter.
Danielsville, Ga., correspondence Atlanta
Constitution: Mrs. Hulda Moore has out
witted the officers at last, and is now hid out
among friends. At last Septemlier term of
our Superior Court judgment was obtained
against Mr. John Moore, husband of the
famous Mrs. Hulda Moore, for attorney’s
fee. A motion ior anew trial was defeated,
but served to postpone collection till the
January sale. Sheriff Scarborough pro
ceeded to levy, but desisted in the face
of Mrs. Moore’s fair promises, and on Mon
day Mrs. Mcore came up ostensibly to settle,
bringing certificates of deposit from the
National Bank of Athens. Hhe requested
Mr. Strickland, plaintiff in the fi. fa.
to write a receipt in full, which
he did. She then requested to see
both receipt and 11 fa. After scrutinizing
them she placed them in her pocket and de
parted. The Sheriff took out a possessory
warrant and followed. Fair promises again
prevailed. Failing to meet her engagement
again the Sheriff went to arrest Mi's. Moore,
but found her armed and defiant, threaten
ing murder if he attempted to enter tho
house. The Sheriff returned without a
prisoner. On Saturday tho Sheriff. Deputy
Sheriff Henry McEwen, and Messrs. Hugh
Hardeman, Lloyd Brooks, and James S.
McCurdy went down to arrest her under a
possessory warrant. On arriving Jim
McCurdy went into the kitchen, where Mm.
Moore and her coon were, to see if lie eouid
not perform the mission peaceably and
without force. The woman was furious, and
kept the tables between her and McCurdy,
leveling her cocked pistol, with finger on
the trigger, at him frequently. There
was no bluff in Jim, and when he saw there
was no other chance but to take her by force,
he stepped out and gave the posse tho alarm,
whereupon Min. Moore jumped out and ran
through the orchard. As the men jimmied
her she drew two pistols, a British ImlJ-dog,
3H-calibre, centre-fire, double-acting, and a
Marquis of Lome, 33-calibre, and with one
in each hand, leveled them ut Bcurb trough.
Brooks and McCurdy. Brooks and McCurdy
rushed toward her from different directions
and captured her, she firing the bull-dog
through Brooks’ hand, doing but little dam
age save burning it. Upon the others rush

the other pistol on Deputy Sheriff

k death. When brought to towu she refused to
go into any house, or to the fire anywhere,
and men crowded about her as she stub
bornly stood and walked back and forth
bareheaded on the square, with the cold
wind whist ling about her. Finally she was
seized by two strong men and carried to the
! fire in Brooks & Williams’ store. While by
i the fire ho spied a hatchet on the mantel
land waited until Jim McCurdvturned his
[eyes elf, when she sprang for tho hatchet.
! Mr. Ben Russell, who saw her object,
| snatched the hatchet in time to save Mc-
Curdy from and atli. Upon the arrival of
j Mr. J. K. Sanders, J. P., she objected t' his

for, when she struck that court also;
her game of bluff was no good,
and she was committed to jail until
she could turn over the jiapem to the
arresting officer, or hnve them forthcoming
to lie dealt with as the law directs. Bhe
sniil she would die before she would give up
the papers. She was carried to the house of
Dr. Sorrell, awaiting the return of her son,
who went home to get the jiapers. Her
husband, away in the night, brought, the
papers, but she forbade him giving them to
the arresting party, and bade linn hand
them to her. She put them in her pocket
and said she would die before she would
give them up. She got sick, went into an
other room at Dr. Sorrell’s and went to bed,
and while some guards went away, and
some slept, and some didn’t guard
very closely, she made a leap for
liberty jumping from a window in
the sleeping room about daybreak, and was
tracked across some plowed ground, where
she ran barefooted. Another ixjs.se went for

Columbia County Citizen: Our last
issue contained a lengthy account of the re
covery from the bed of the Ichetucknee
river of the bones of a mastodon and the
transferring of them, by Dr. J. Kost, State
Geologist, etc., to the Agricultural College
museum at this place. The doctor is still at
work, and his discoveries iucrease in in
terest. The bones of another mastodon of
full size have been taken up half a mile
higher up the river. These prove to bo those
of another individual,because they are dupli
cates—including an additional maxillary and
extra femur, as also numerous smaller
bones. What is jiarticuiarly interesting is
that the bones of three other species of large
animals of earlier geological ages—the Meg
atherium, Mylodon and Palsootherium—
were found in the same locality where the
last found mastodon lames were takeri up.
Dr. Kost's labors will add greatly to the
paheontology of Florida, and should be
properly encouraged and aided.
Many Bt. Augustine people are curious to
know why a large hotel is being built, al
most as largo as the Ponce de Leon, in such
close proximity to it by the same man. The
Alcazar, when finished and occupied, will
be more of a cosmojiolitan bazar than any
thing else. Its large court will have open
ing upon it many stores selling souvenirs
and fancy goals. There will be cafes
where one can go and procure a meal cost
ing as small a figure as 35c., or something
bon ton to cost us hign as $7. Buites of
rooms will be furnished for any sized family.
One of the magnificent features of the Alca
zar will be the bathing department. Here
one can obtain a bath in the recherche
Turkish style—can dive in the big sulphur
pool, or sport in the great sea water bath.
The Alcazar is intended to lie a nucleus,
where one can go and find whatsoever he
may desire, from tlie jilainest necessaries of
life to tho costliest luxuries. It will be com
pleted in a few months. Like the Ponce de
Leon, it will be surmounted by two towers
of handsome proportions.
A Reminiscence of 1805.
From t he Lafayette (Ga.) Messenger.
Oneof our little North Georgia towns, after
the surrender, was garrisoned by a regiment
of Germans. Belonging to tho command
was a Frenchman, who made himsely very
obnoxious to the citizens by his abuse of the
South. The soldiers at night made head
quarters at a store where beer and other
luxuries wore sold. The proprie
tor proposed to a friend of
his to get even with tiie French
man, if he would shade the light at a given
signal. The proposition was cheerfully ac
cepted. That night, when tlie soldiers had
assembled and were marching around in
the store singing, as was their custom, the
signal w&s given, tlie light shaded, and the
Frenchman was dropped by a blow behind
the ear. The moment ho was struck, the
storekeeper threw liis arms around a big,
burly sergeant mid begged him for God's
sake not to strike him again. The French
man was taken to the hospital, and
the innocent sergeant to tlie
guard house, Tne next day
the storekeeper prescrib'd himself
befosp tho Colonel, who was a German, and
said .that while it might look like prosumi>-
tion in him, ho thought lie could explain (o
him why tlie Sergeant had struck the
Frenchman. It was because ho had abused
the Fatherland. This statement struck the
right chord. The Colonel turned purple
with anger at the thought of any one abus
ing Germany, swore round y, and promptly
oidereil the release of the Sergeant and the
transfer of the Frenchman from the hospital
to the guard house.

THE STRUGGLE FOR MONEY.
People Who Succeed and Those Who
Fall in the Merciless Competition.
From the Philadelphia Press.
New York, Dec. Id. —How do men suc
ceed in New York! The question came to
my mind a few nights ago as I sat in the
office of a newspaper correspondent, and
watched his telegraph operntor dozing over
his key. News was dull anil he had nothing
elso to do. But it was the first break in six
teen hours’ continuous labor, and he had
three more to put in. That would make
nineteen hours for his day’s work. A long
stretch, isn’t it? Yet that man has stood it
for thirty ;nonths, every day but the Sab
bath, when he only puts in eight hours. He
works as an operator at night and
studies dentistry in the daytime. Next
spring he will graduate from the dental col
lege, and five years hence he will probably
be pulling the teeth of our millionaires at
S3O apiece. For it takes a goal deal of pluck
to travel in the hard road that he marked
out for himself when he came here a
stranger from Dixie’s iand, and, after all,
it is pluck that tells in the merciless battle
for existence that is waged here every day.
The men who have made a place for them
selves here are those who began just as this
one has, and who passed the milestones on
the journey of life only by wearisome but
never-ending trudging along its stony
Some men’s lives would read like romances
if the facts of them could be told. One of
the afternoon trains on the Pennsylvania
took from this city to Washington the other
day the editor of an afternoon paper. He
went to the national capital to represent in
Congress the biggest district in the biggest
city in the country. Yet twenty-five years
ago he literally walked into town looking
for a job. He was a printer then. Now an
entire newspaper establishment inarched to
tlie station to start him right off on his
political career, and he goes into Congress
as tho brightest, if not tne ablest, journalist
in the city. How much of the midnight oil
do you sut jkiso he burned twenty years ago
after he had finished his day’s work on
the religious weekly on which he was
employed ? It was not until after he
ran the presses, set type, and made-up the
forms' on the Tribune in Horace Greeley’s
days that he got his first ojiportunity to
write a line lor a newspaper. Another
leading journalist of to-day set type on tlie
paper of which he is now the managing
editor. That was exactly twenty years
ago. There is probably no better executive
manager in a newspaper office than lie is,
1 >ut only hard work and grit developed his
faculty or brought him his opportunities.
For ten years he seldom missed putting in
fourteen hours a day at the office, and seven
•lays a week, too. Add to that the time he
spent at homo reading, and you will find
that life was not a bed of roses for him.
TOIL THE KEY TO SUCCESS.
The man who comes here to tread the
path of dalliance will find himself Tallingback
m tho race before he lias gone far. I could
cite a dozen instances in journalism of both
sides of the story, but take another profes
sion—medicine. One of the surprises that
caine to me a few days ago was an invita
tion to dine with a well-known physician,
whose fees easily average $ 10,000 a year.
Twelve years ago, after he had been jirac
ticing a long while, he had to turn to clerk
ing in a hotel at night in order to gain a
livelihood. During the day he managed to
catch sufficient sleep between the calls from
patients. Some five years ago his skill
snatched the President of a national bank
literally from the grave, for he had sunk
away to a skeleton of ninety-four
pounds and was unable to leave hia bed.
That was the turning point in the doctor’s
fortunes also, and he resigned his clerkship.
Over a dinner table laden with the best that
money could buv or an epicure suggest, my
medicinal friend assured me that one-third
of his profession in this city had a hard bat
tle to keep their heads above water, another
third are glad to be even with the world at
the end of the year, and the remainder were
the fortunate ones who could put away
more or less in the course of a twelve-month.
“There are men in this city,” ho added,
“who have graduated with the highest
honors, anil yet have to clerk for druggists
or starve while waiting for patients. Fifty
cents of actual cash paid would be a high
average for tho fees in our profession here
from top to bottom.”
One of the partners in a leading whole
sale grocery house has lived in the Hoffman
for twenty-six years. For all but one year
of that time he has been called at 4:30 every
morning, and had breakfast at 5, and been
at the store before 0. He has missed this
routine exactly sixteen times. Eleven of
these were caused by sickness, and on the
other occasions he was out of the city. The
last twelve months he lias been taking life
easier and sleeping until 6 o’clock. He
leaves his store at 6 every evening. I sup
jiose the firm of whicti he is a member does
a business of $10,000,000 a year. He him
self is credited with over $2,000,000 in cash
investments outside of his trade. When he
began life here he clerked in a retail gro
cery-one of those places where you carry
coal all day and sleep on tho empty barrels
at night. He was paid $3 a week" and his
board. An uncle died and he bought an in
terest in the grocery with the money lie in
herited. That was the foundation of prob
ably the largest house in the trade in
THE DARK SIDE OF THE PICTURE.
Discouragements and disappointments of
ten come so close together on a young fel
low starting out on a career, with the
brightest hojies of a great future before him
that he is not always to blame if he gives
up the battle and confesses his defeat after
a few hopeless trials. There came into the
lYess office here last week a young man
who stated that ho wanted a position to do
anything to keep himself for the winter.
He’ was well dressed, of good npjiearanee,
und evidently hail the lieuefits of an educa
tion. He stated that he was a lawyer, hav
ing teen admitted to the bar in 1882. Since
then ho has been struggling for a practice.
His highest earnings in any one year
were $753. Last year he made less than
$.500 out of the law, but lie earned a few
hundred more by teaching in a night school
during the winter. He declared that he had
walked his shoes off trying to get an office
jiosition with a lawyer’s firm, and as an evi
dence of the plight youthfui barristers are
in showed this advertisement in a legal
,- A lawyer of ten years’ experience, and
having best references from l ading firms,
would clerk or look after office business for
$lO per wiM'k. Address .”
“Is the situation reaJly as bud ns that pic
times it?” I asked a bright legal luminary
“That doesn’t begin to indicate it, he an
swered. “I know a young lawyer who docs
tho copying for a big law firm, and
doesn’t get a dollar for it. They get his ser
vices for nothing because they know that
the fact that he began with thorn will helji
him hereafter. He teaches languages at
night, and thus mak s enough to pull
through on. Dozens are in the same beat
with him. In small firms, of course they
get, a salary, but it don't amount to Jnucii.
Rich men’s sons, who doesn’t care for tlie
money—or for law, either, forthat mat
ter-crowd out everybody else in law offices
here. They get no salary, but in many
coses squander more money than their em
ployers make. It takes a hard pull and a
strong pull to break through the ice. but
once out of the drudge—well, a $50,000 foe
has come to some people you know. ”
