Sheriff Brewster and Chief Shackletord went out Sunday and rounded up Gene and Matt and landed them in .jail. Isaiah and Rollin Dew, another team of Africans, stole some shot's from the H. C. Arnall Merchan dise Co. a lew days ago, and as a result are in trouble. They were caught with the goods on and pulled by Chief Shackleford and Policeman Fincannon.

What regiments composed the brigade commanded by Francis dining to accept an office to which 1 Bartow at the battle of Manassas, he has been legally elected. The and what was his rank? returns on their tace show that Sherard was chosen county judge in DeKalb county. He defeated L. D. Fisher after a vigorous race. In fact, it would seem now that Mr. Sherard would think that it was too vigorous. Roth men claim to have run a clean race, but some sixty odd voters cast their ballots for “L. I). Williams,” who was not a candi date tor judge. There was no such man in the county and Sher ard believes that his opponent’s name was misunderstood by some who wished him elected and voted for L. D. Williams instead of L. D. Fisher. Believing this, he can not accept the office to which the j returns show he was elected. His conscience won’t let him. His majority was but forty-seven votes. If Fisher should get the Williams votes he would be judge and Sher ard would be defeated. 9. In what battle did Bartow re ceive his death wound, anti what were his last patriotic words? 10.
