OUTRAGE IN COLUMBIA COUNTY.
^’Yesterday afternoon, the 23d inst.,
*lr. J.’B. Griffin, of Columbia county,
came into the Chronicle office, and gave
the following particulars of a dark and
dastardly outrage perpetrated by a
masked robber near Augusta Sunday
• afternoon •
According to Mr. Griffin’s statement ^ teats
his brother, Mr. VjI. S. Griffin, left his
farm and dwelling, which is not tar
from the A. & K. R. R. But a sh«rt
time after his departure a man, said to
have been in mask, entered the house
where Mr. Griffin’s young wife was at
tending her little infant, about four
weeks o^d. And as he confronted Mrs.
Griffin he drew a pistol and threatened
to kill her. He made her put down her
infant, and is said to have slapped her
face uutil her nose bled, then walked to
the bureau, which he ransacked. He
finally secured 81 in greenback and
75 in silver, two silk neck lies, with
a gold leaf pin, He then demanded
money and whisky, and when assured
by Mrs. Griffin that there were none
in the house the robber she says drew a
knife and cut her on the breast and in
the side near the belt. It is then said
be attempted to cut from Mrs. Griffins’s
hpnd her marriage ring, with a knife
.which is said to have been carried in
his own ring, Mrs. Griffin attempted
tn slap his pistol from his hand, when
the wretch knocked her down, k : cking
her, seriously bruising her. He then
told her that he had a grudge agaiust
her, because she had him ordered out of
her yard a few weeks buck. It seems
that this party was lurking around the
arbor in the garden, and Mrs. Griffin
had one of the hands after him with
m shot gun. He then threatened to kill
her husband, and warned her that he
would be around again soon.
Shortly after his depat ture, Mr. J. B.
Griffin arrived at his brother’s house,
where he found Mrs. Griffin bleeding,
bruised and overcome with the shock
and' nervous excitement of the savage
a tack of the bandit. Mr. Griffin im
mediately followed him, travelling
nearly all night, but finally lost trace
of bis man near Augusta. He was in
1 own vesterday with one of his younger
brothers, trying to follow up his clue,
and w# aided in his search by the po
lice officers. Mr. W. S. Griffin has
offered a reward of $150 for the arrest
of the party. He is described as being
* over six feet high, slim built, with a
large seal ring on the little finger of his
left hand. He wore a white broad
brimmed hat, and earned two handsome
silver mounted pistols.—Augusta Chron
breeding both here and on the islarfd of
Jersey has wonderfully improved this
stock. A proof of this is shown in
many young cows and heifers offered in
late sales in New York and Philadel
phia. They frequently give from
twelve to fifteen quarts of rich milk
with their first calf, and have the fine
formed udder of Ayrshire type, with
In ' many of our large
cities milk of superior quality is eagerly
sought after by the wealthier classes
and an advance price cheerfully given.
For this the Jersey add grade Jersey
have no superiors, and the yield of
milk in some thoroughbred herds sur
passes that of the famous Ayrshires.-*-
Their remarkable evenness of yield,
giving in many cases six to eight quarts
just before calving, accomplishes this.
New York wisely seems to have been
selected as the best mart to hold sales
of these cattle, and during the nexf
thirty days several are to be held. To
morrow at the American Horse Ex
change some fifty aniilia’s of noted
blood, and from well-known herds, are
to be sold, offering an opportunity to
those desirous of purchasing.

THE JERSEY COW.
New York Herfld.
Few people realize the increased do-
mand for first-class butter, not only
among private families, but especially
among first-class hotels in large cities,
and cf the great competition that exists
among the latter to secure the best of
everything without regard to price.—
The great West and Southwest have
been called upon to meet this demand,
and hundreds of oreameries have been
started through that section of the
country, giving the tarmers nearly
double the prioe formerly obtained for
milk. In the most successful of these
butter districts they have now turned
their attention to the quality of milk
and have induced (he farmer to improve
Mb stock. The supremacy of the Jersey
for making a butter of unsurpassed
quality and of rich color, and fer yield
ing (he most, butter from the same
amount ot milk, bus caused such a de
mand for this stock that during the
post seas'** many carloads have been
shipped from the East The demand is
rapidly extending. Breeders thus en
couraged are now p tying big prices for
uhoioe strains of this blood. THp judi-
