out in the heart of the business'sec

terday morning and before the flames
were checked over $100,000 had gone

Negro Cuts into Bag Hanging
LaGrange, Ga., Feb. 12.—The mail
pouch at Mutual was cut into Tuesday
evening and robbed of about $80.
Mutual is a station on the Macon,
LaGrange and Birmingham road,
where the Colored Mutual Aid Society
has a coffin factory and is attempting
to establish a colony of negroes.
The train does not always stop at
this station, but catches the mail from
a crane. On Tuesday evening the
pouch was hung on the crane as usual
about 20 minutes before train time,
hut before the train arrived the bag
was cut and the money taken out.
Howard Newman, who was on the
mail car, discovered the cut in the bag
and that the registered packages had
been taken therefrom. He immediate
ly reported it to the department.
Upon investigation it was found that
a negro, Anderson Brewer, who works
at Mutual, saw the postmaster mak
ing up the mail and thought it a fine
opportunity to get some cash and em
braced the opportunity. The negro
was arrested and confessed to the
deed, but escaped and is now at large.
