Crttwfonl Itoiinell Arrested and CerrlejJ
tu Macon Chnrffed With Counterfeiting/
The people of Berrieu county
>ro startled last Monday by the
news, which spread like wildfire,
lliat Crawford Bonnolly-a/yonng
white man living a few ipjifa south
of Brookfield—had beenjftrrested the
day before and carrieil to Macon by
depnty United States Marshall
Avant upon n ohargo of making and
passing counterfeit money.
The editor of tlie Gazbttk is well
acquainted with Bomibll and ns soon
us the matter was brought to ids
knowledge he sturted out in search
of tlie fucts in the case. Learning
that Air. W. 0. Tift had spent an
hour or more with the officers in
theii rooms at Hotel Smli“, and prob
ably knew more about it than any
other person in tlie city, lie sought
an interview with him at the first
opportunity. From Mr. Tift lto
learned that tlie young man, Bonncll,
lmd been, arrested at his home south
of Brookfield; that the officers found
the counterfeiting apparatus at his
hoiiGo and some of the spurious mon
ey in his possession. It seems that
Bunnell was located by a young
white man, named Hardy Wheelis,
wlio hud been arrested in Afacon for
passing counterfeit money.
Notwithstanding tlie evidence
against Bounell is strong—finding
tlie apparatus in his house aud lie in
possession of spurious money—-every
body in the county who knows him,
arc ulmest positive lie is not guilty
of tlie charge against him. Ami
they believe, further, that ho is a
victim of Wheeiis who lmd been en
gaged in the ucfarioiiu business and
lmd left the apparatus at Bomicll’s
house und gone oft to get. rid of his
output; and for the further purpose
of having a pluusiole blind in the
vent, lie should he caught in tile not
of “shoving the queer.”
TIiobo intimately acquainted with
Konnoll know him to be a half wit
ted fellow and’ they will he hard to
couviuco tlmt lie lmd sense enough
to utter counterfeit money so perfect
it requires an expert and olose scru
tiny to discover its spurionsness.
Bonncll, some years ago, was ad
judged a lunatic and sent to the asy
lum for treatment, He carries ou
Ida phisiognomy tlie defective mark
of nature so clearly tlmt it doesn’t
require, a oloso observer to detect it.
Wheelis is reported ns a rascal of
no small calibre. He is said to lie
wanted in Oglethorpe county for
murder mid theft and in Washington
county for theft.

Slate for in-
Thero is no crop which has so
many enemies to contend with ns to
bacco. They begin their voracious
work ns soon as the plant lifts its
puny head above the surface, of the
plant bed. There are different kinds
ami “soots" of these eneinics—the
flea bug, tlie cut worm, the bml worm
aud tlie horn worm; and, if perchance
the plant survives these and tenches
the mnnufntory, then the tobacco
crank begins his work, ami really
there is no rest for the bewitching
tobacco wood until Us substance is
lost, through the fumes of the gentle
pipe of peace or abused otherwise as
Tho first enemy to ply his vaca
tion is the (leu bug, ami begins his
depredations in the plant bed soon
after the plants are up. Tho most
satisfactory way to rid tlie plants of
them is to apply a light coating of
plaster In which a few drops of kor-
osene oil Imvu been added; if tho first
application is not sufficient, repeat as
/iften as is necessary. Another of
fectivo remedy is to saturate yarn
rags with kerosene oil, split a stick,
put the corner of the rag in tlie split
and suspend it jirnt above tlie plants.
They should he placed about four
feet apurt around and across tlie hod.
Those little pests tiro worse somo sea
sons limn others, und nothing hut
tlie closest watchfulness will insure
the safety of the young plants when
uttaoked by them.
Next, in turn, is tho cut worm,
which begins its work after the
plants have been transplanted. Tide
is tho ordinary cut worm which
crawls from tlie ground at night
and ants off the tender plant just as
he does the cabbage or other plant.
Tho only effectual way to destroy
them is to hunt them down und sep
arata the head from the body. Stub
ble clover or lands that have been
allowed to grow up in weeds aro pro
lific yieldcrs of tho cut worm.
Tlie hud worm conies next in ro
tation, and is tlie worse of all ene
mies which infest the tobacco plaut,
and yet the least troublesome as they
nre not very prolific. However they
wilt do, greater damage in a given
period of time than any other und,
therefore, should bo looked after
very closely. Its home is 111 the ten
der bml of the tobucco plant, where
it feeds ou the tender toms so that
when they grow out, they are per
forated with lioles, rendering them
utmost useless for anything but
trash. The only remedy to rid tho
plant of them is tho same method by
which you get rid of tho cut worm,
Now comes the majesties) horn
.worm, the crop destroyer. The to
bacco fly usuully makes its appear
mice in Aluy and deposits the eggs
which hatch out in about six days.
Tlie growing stage of the worm is
about thirty days. It shods its outer
skin twice before attaining its growth;
after which it remains only a few
days, then burrows into tho ground
and “turns to pupa,” wliioh sends
forth a moth or “fly” to lay more
egg*. Each fly will lay from one to
three hundred eggs; eo, from every
moth in Aluy, we can expect ohc hun
dred worm of the first brood. If
none of these are destroyed, hut all
permitted to change to flies, ia it any
wonder that tho second brood ap

exterminating them is to inject
