James A. Stewart, the newly elected
mayor of Griffin, is only 22 years old. He
is a son of Hon. J. D. Stewart, the pres
ent congressman from that district, but
that had “potbing to do with the case,’’ and
Lis father was probably the most surprised
man in the country when he received at
Washington a telegram announcing his
son’s election. Brought out <no day before
the election, he received thirty-nine major
ity over one of the oldest and most solid
citizens of Griffin. This was brought about
greatly through a desire for a change in the
administration of the city government,
but was also largely due to Mr. Stewart’s
popularity and the able manner in which
the impromptu cam; aign was conducted.
Mr. Stewart being at the beginning of his
career, there wifi probably be more to say
about him in the future than there is at
present. He was born Aug. 1, 1866, and is
not only a native of Griffin, but has always
been a resident of the city, receiving his
education here at Miss ' Mollie Porter’s
school, and afterward under Prof. G. C.
Looney, at Sam Bailey institute. After
leaving school he has clerked at various
places, and is now engaged in E. J. Flem
ister’s dry goods store, giving the best of
satisfaction to his employer. The offices he
has previously held are those of secretary
and treasurer of the fire department, which
he now holds; and he was treasurer of
Griffin Light Guards nt the time that or
ganization fell into innocuous desuetude.

A HOtiDS OF ’POSSUMS.
The Animals are Kept in a Room on
From t/ie Atlanta (Oa.) Journal.
One hundred and sixty ’possums huddled
together in one room, or climbing about on
poles placed therein for their accommo
That’s what a Journal man saw at the
wholesale grocery and seed store of J. C.
McMillan & Cos., on Marietta street.
The ’possum room was as dark as Erebus.
On a number of poles running across the
room were little ’po sums, ’big 'possums, fat
’possums, gray ’possums, black ’possums,
every one with snapping little black eyes
and grinning teeth.
One great big fellow that weighed fifteen
pounds was hanging by his tail from the
gas jet, he having reached the jet by jump
ing from a pole close by.
Cuddled up in the corner of a little box
on the ti er was a little gray ’possum that
growled aul snarled like a cat whenever
auj* other ’possum came near his home.
This ’possum was tho smallest in the lot,
but whenever ho approached a bunch of his
fellows they always parted to rnaki ro >m
for him, as he was undoubtedly '‘the cock
of the walk.” Some of the 'possums stav
in this room for two weeks, but most of
them remain there only a few days before
they are taken out to have their necks
They aro fed on slops just as a pig is fed.
Two of the’possums escaped one night,
and the next morning the mangled remains
of fourteen chickens were found scattered
about the store room. The McMillan
’possum iiouse is perhaps tbo only one in the
world, as the animals are generally kept in
coops until they are wanted for the table.
If the trade in ’possums continues to in
crease within tbe next lew years wo may
expect to see a sign something like this:
“McMillan Bros., wholosile dealers in and
importers of ’possums, the largest ’possum
dealers iu tho south,”
We may also expect to see large houses
erected, built expressly for the accommoda
tions of the 'possums which aro brought to

A TREE FULL OF COONS.
And It Might Have Been Full Aeain if
the Hunters Hadn’t Investigated.
Newport, Pa., Dec. I.— Sam Greeley,
George Crane and Phil Kroll of Brady's
went coon hunting the other night on Jim’s
mouutain, a mile distant. The dogs treed a
coon. Sam Greeley climbed the tree to
shake it down. Tee coon was scon jolted
off the branch, and, after a good fight, tbe
“Hold on!” Ham shouted down. “There's
another one up here. Jiminettv! There’s
two! Jerusalem! The tree’s full of’em!”
Then Sam proceeded to shakedown coins.
After he bad shaken down nine, one after
another, all fat ones, and the dogs had
killed them. Sam said :
“Thtre's more up here; but hain’t we got
The other two members said they thought
nine coons were enough to gather < ff of ona
tree, aud not a very big tree at that, and
Barn came down.
“I don’t know how many there’s up there
yet," he said, “but there's six certai.
The dogs refused to leave tho tree, but the
hunters carried their nine coons home. On
the way in they met Bill Grover and Jerry
Knapp, wli i w ere also out cooning, but
hadn’t killed any.
“You might a’s wail go home,” said Sam
Greeley, “unless you go "over in Ginn’s
Hollow, where we’ve been. All the coons
in those woods are treed in one tree over
there. You’ll hearths dogs yelping at 'em
if 2° that way.”
Grover and Knapp went over to the hol
low, and the noise made by the dogs took
them to the tree.
“There’s coon here, that’s sure,” said
Grover, and ho climbed tho tree. Ha shook
“There’s two or three more here,” said
Grover, “but they're way up in the top
branches, and I can’t eet tv em.”
So tho two hunters went away with their
six coons. The dogs remained. Nut
morning Charley Grable went to the Hol
low with his gun. Tbe dogs were still
under the tree. Charley popped three
coons out of the tree top, and shouldered
them. Then the dogs went home. Every
body about Brady’s said that such a thing
ns e ghteen cxms t eing fouud in one tree
was without precedent, and no ono could
understand how it was until Uncle Jake
Shindler, the champion hunter of Fabley
Run, got up and explains 1 it.
“You’ll find,” he said, "if you take the
trouble to investigate, that the tree is hol
ler. Holler trees is where coons lives dur
in’ the winter, as many as can comfortably
pile in together. Now, them eighteen coon
was lookin’ for a winter home. Some of
era, maybe, had nested in that very tree be
fore. They happened to all most there to
gether about tho time Greeley’s dogs and
the rest of ’em struck the tree. W•• wasn’t
they in the holler of the tree! Well, if you’!!
take the trouble to investigate, you'll find
that the holier had been took up previously
by a family or so of black snakes. I hain’t
sure, but I'm willing to bet a farm that
y u’ll find a couple dozen, maybe,
of black snakes huddlin’ in
that holler. Now, coons haiu’t the
kind o’ critters that will bunk in so it:.
snakes, and so them eignteen didn’t choos ■
quarter's in that tree. The dog? come
along as they was considerin’ what they
had better do, and, of course, as long os the
dogs was there no coon would leave the tree
till he "as forced to. That’s all there is to
them ■ ighteen oo 'ns betn’ in that one tree.
You’ll find' it’s so if you take the trouble to
investigate. I knocked twenty coons out of
a holler chestnut once. The next day I cut
a hole in the tree near the bottom, and lit
some straw and stuck in it, and kept the fire
goin’. It wasn’t long before black snakes
began to oome out of the hole at the top,
and I thrashed tho life out of twentv-nig it
big ones—2oo feet of black sDake, I’ll bet a
Stftn Greeley and tbe rest of the hunt? r
went over to Ginn’s Hollow to test Uncle
Jake’s theory. If any one had b t a farm
that Jake was wrong, he’d have lost th ■
farm. A fire built in th% tree as the old
hunter described it made a lively tree of it
for a few minutes, for thirty-four black
snakes came wriggling and contorting them
selves out of the hollow trunk, arid only
two wero agile enough to got away into tbe
bushes. After the snake colony had been
cleaned out, and the jdbilan' hunters find
como back and congratulated Uncle Jake on
hts knowledge of coon and snake lore, the
oid hunts- quietly remarked:
“Oh, I know you’d find it that wav if you
took the trouble to investigate. But you’re
a pack of dum-gusted fools for doing it.”
•‘How’s thatr 1 said Sam Greeley, in sur
“’Cause, if you’d left them snakes in the
holler,” replied Uncle Jake, “you’d have
found another wagon load of coons boldin’
a council in the tree to-night, and I’ll bet a
farm on it.”
