18th, did much ilamage to fruit crops
and truck farming. Much loss in this
section wilt result to growers from the
killing of all early vegetables, melons
and young tobacco plants, though the
latter will lie replanted to a considerable
extent. A diversity of opinion exists as
to the extent to which the pear crop has

The origin of the fire is not known,
but is supposed to have been due to a
defective flue iu an upper room.

dyed some other color and bundled oft*

jmshed and shoved off on an innocent
and unsuspecting pub.ic. Wc have no

to this level, buf we will always keep

From Our Legal Correspondent.
Baxley, Ga., March 18.—The Supe
rior court of Appling county has been
in session here during the present week.
The civil docket lias claimed and will
claim exclusive attention until Friday
night, when the court will be adjourned
in order to enable Judge Atkinson to
hear an injunction petition set for Sat
urday in Brunswick. , ,
The docket is very crowded and unless
the calender for the Brunswick circuit is
rearranged, the necessity tor a call term
each year will continue to exist. The
20th of June next has been named for
the convention of such s term of Ap
pling Superior court. It is proposed
then to dispose of all the damage suits
filed here against the East Tennessee,
Virginia and Georgia Railroad Co.
There are eight or ten in number and
many of them for very considerable
sums. The criminal docket will bp
cleared at that time, and it may be fair
to conclude that there will be a very full
week’s work. Several issues involving
possession of certain lots of land in
county have been tried. Filing affida-
vids of forgery seems to have been the
order; and, what is extremely difficult to
do, and seldom seen done, was in those
cases done, namely, the forgeries estab
lished. Ye owners of timber lands
