On Thurdsay afternoon of last week
a man giving his name as Phillips and
Columbus as his home, went to Gear-
reld’s stables and bargained for the
hire of a horse and buggy. He repre
sented himself as a revenue officer,
stated that he was going up into Camp
bell county on a raid, and that he
would keep the team out until the next
afternoon or Saturday morning. He
paid in advance for the team, and sta
ted his business so glibly and plausibly
that the liveryman did not suspect his
honesty or the truthfulness of his story.
He did not return Friday afternoon,
however, nor did he show up on Satur
day. In fact, neither the bogus “rev
enue” man nor the team had been
heard from at last accounts. It has
been learned since that the man’s name
is J. R. Phillips, that he was recently
employed on a farm near Whitesburg,
and that he has a bad record in Carroll
county, where he has been a familiar
figure in the courts for several years.
Mr. Gearreld is anxious to locate him
before the September term of our Su
perior Court convenes, and is bending
every effort to this end.

Death of Prof. A. McB. Ransom.
Prof. A. McB. Ransom died at St.
Joseph’s Infirmary, Atlanta, at 7
o’clock Saturday evening, following an
illness of several weeks.
Prof. Ransom had a severe attack of
pleurisy in the early part of the year,
and spent a month or so ut a sanata
rium, in Atlanta, where he underwent an
operation. The operation was apparent
ly successful, and some weeks later he
was discharged from the institution as
cured. He then returned to his duties
as associate professor of chemistry at
the Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Au
burn, Ala.—a position which he had
been filling with distinction for sever
al years. About five weeks ago he was
seized with a chill, and, fearing a re
currence of the pleuritic trouble from
which he had suffered so severely some
months before, he again went to Atlan
ta for treatment, entering St. Joseph’s
Infirmary. He remained at this hos
pital about four weeks, and was con
sidered so much improved that his
Newnan relatives were advised by the
hospital authorities that he would be
well enough by Friday to return home.
On the day set for his discharge, how
ever, he took a sudden turn for the
worse, and Saturday afternoon he had
a sinking spell. His death followed
The announcement of Prof. Ran
som’s death was a great shock to his
Newnan friends, as well as to his fam
ily, and caused universal sorrow in the
community. He was a splendid young
man and a fine character, with a
promising future in his chosen profes
sion, while his lovable personal traits
endeared him to a wide circle of
friends. He was 35 years of age and
unmarried, his nearest relatives being
his mother, Mrs. G. A. Ransom, his
sisters, Mrs. J. S. Powell and Mrs. Lu
tie N. Powers, of this city, and two
brothers, Mr. M. S. Ransom, of Atlan
ta. and Mr. T. J. Ransom, of Texas.
The funeral took place Monday morn

Judge J. S. Powell, on Spring street,
and was largely attended. Services
