While King was breathing the air of this oo minu nity he became involved in debt. He didn’t scho lulc, but to all ap pearances went ci .zy as a bat. Bocal alienists examined him all over, even to his wooden leg, and pronounced him a lit subject foi the biggest asylum in the country. The county authorities sent him him down to Milledgeville hand culled with tw o guards. When he arrived at that institution the head doctor looked in his eyes, asked him a few duestions, put him on the next train out and sent him to Bula, Ga. Some of the boys said when he arrived there he was wealing a tag a 1 dressed to Dank Carter, but we can not vouch for the truth of that assertions. But that that was the last we heard of J’eg • Leg King until he passed through last week, and it may be that we will never see nor hear of him again.
