Miller farm near P
The girl, about 8 years old, was
brought to Perry for medical at

done for hfer by -Drs. fl: M. Holtz-

shot in the head, the pistol ball en
tering the upper left side.- of the
forehead, penetrating into the
brain. She was carried back home
late in the afternoon, in an extreme
ly critical condition, and died
during the night.

mother of the child, as follows:
John Sparks is an uncle-in-law of
the child he shot, Alice Billings.
He had been separated from his
wife, who was staying with her
sister, mother of the girl—on the
Judge Miller farm. Tuesday
morning he appeared with a wagon
to carry his wife to his home. She
refused to go with him. He was
determined to carry her, and forced
her into the wagon and held her
there as he drove off. The girl
ran up to the wagon and cried out,
Look, mamma, he’s carrying
auntie off.” .
With an expression of %nger, he
drew his pistol and shot the girl,
as above indicated. '
He then drove on down the road,
toward Hayneville, unhitched one
mule from the wagon, mounted it
and rode off, leaving wagon, mule
and wife in the road.
As soon as Sheriff Cooper was
informed of the deed, he secured
a warrant, and with Deputy Sher

The. district'Sunday School, Con

of the Colored M, E.’ Church

New Hope,) from Friday until
Sunday night last. It was, as a
gathering of colored delegates and
visitors; as to deportment, morali

serving jf praise that we have ever
known in our midst. LTke object
of the convention was to encourage
near Fort ^ Sunday School work in their

perform certain necessary work re
The forenoon sessions of each
day were devoted to the transac

sessions to Scripture lessons, orig

all relating to Sabbath school
Throughout each day the sittings
of the convention were harmonious,
interesting and instructive. On
Friday evening a representative of

—The need increases for a steam
laundry in Perry. Nearly bi
half of every year it is difficult to
secure the services of washerwo
men, and at all times the service
rendered fails to give satisfaction.
Our housewives -deserve better
treatment, and we can. accord it by
establishing a laundry. We are
informed that $2,000 will establish
a laundry of sufficient capauity to
do all the work for Perry. A stock
company could easily be formed,
and in a short time the enterprise
could be in operation, serving the
stock-holders profitably, and all
the citizens conveniently.
—William Henry Harrison, the
colored gentleman who does the
circular work in this office on press
days, has a penchant for,“arista

short of the mark very often. He
claims to be well posted on Bible
subjects, and holds tenaciously to
his opinions. ' Hi's "code of‘humili
ty was thus expressed the other
day: “If your brother smote yon
on one side of the jaw, turn the
other side to be smoted; and the
third blow is yourn.”
-A wild oat weighing 25 pounds
was killed by Mr. John Leary last

cat jumped from the tree,*Mr.
Leary hurriedly retired to load his
gun. The dog engaged the cat in
battle, and soon Mr. Leary had
opportunity to shoot the eat twice
more, and the feline monster was
no more in life. A foot was
brought to Perry as a trophy.

not buy, but sells for the advantage
of his customers. He represents
