SUMMERVILLE, CHATTOOGA COUNTY, GEORGIA, NOVEMBER 11, 1896
A REMARKABLE CASE.
Railroad Prosecuted Husband-
Wife Sues Railroad.
A suit brought by Mrs Sallio
Leo Shaw, wife of Tom Shaw, who
will be tried at Jeffersonville, Ga.,
for wrecking the Southern railway
train at Stone creek on Feb. 29th,
was transferred from the superior
court of Twiggs county to the
United States court, the order of
transfer being signed bp Judge C.
C. Smith at the request of the
The most interesting circum
stances connected with the trans
fer of the suit is that Mrs. Shaw
sues to recover SIO,OOO damages
for injuries received in the wreck
at Stone creek, and that her hus
band is to be tried for wrecking the
train on which she was a passen
ger, and which caused her injuries.
The case is thought to be without
a parallel, especially as the rail
road expects to prove at Shaw’s
trial that his object in wrecking
ing the train was to get rid of her
and at the same time get damages
for her death. The road also
claims to be able to establish the
fact that Shaw had already made
arrangements to marry another
woman in anticipation of his
wife’s death .
In her petition, Mrs. Shaw,
through her attorney, that
she boarded the train at Macon at
7 p. m. on Friday, Feb. 29, of the
present year for Reid’s Station;
that the tram was delayed and was
making up time by running at a
high rate of speed when the acci
dent occurred. Through the neg
ligence and carelessness of the
road’s officers, agents and employ
es, she was permanently injured
about the hips and hack, her teeth
knocked out, and that she sustain
ed other painful and harmful in
injuries. She further alleges that
the bridges and trestles over which
the train passed were rotten and
unsafe. The case will be heard
when the court convenes in its Oc
The trial of Tom Shaw will be
one of the most sensational cases
ever hea’d in Georgia. Warren
Giiswell, who confessed to aiding
Shaw in wrecking the train, has
already been tried and sentenced
to life imprisonment, the mercy
of the court being extended be
cause of his efforts to bring the
guilty to justice. Mrs. Shaw has
frequently visited her husband in
Bibb jail, though Shaw has shown
little respect for her ever since his
incarceration. She is young and
comely, and stands closely by her
husband despite the damaging
character of the testimony

“A misunderstanding as to the

to peculiar situations,” said Rev.
A. L Smith, of Chicago, at. the Ar

ral other ministers I was riding in
a stage or hack, which served the
purpose of a stage, en route to a
camp-meeting. The road wound
along the mountains, and the air
’ was delightful, while the scenery
' was almost sublime. I was invig
orated as though by a powerful
tonic, and several times remarked
upon the ozone in the air. After
: one of these observations the driver
stopped the horses and beckoning
to me slyly, climbed fre-m the seat.
Wondering what he could want, I
followed him, and soon we were
behind a large tree, out of view of
the wagon. ‘Parson,’ said the dri
ver, ‘I couldn’t bear to see you suf
fer. The ozoae you smelled was
in my pocket-’ With these words
,he drew forth a large bottle of
whisky, which he offered to me. It
’ took several minutes to convince
I him that it was not whisky I had
■ referred to as ozone.”

How to Cure a Severe Cold.
A few weeks ago the editor was
taken with a very severe cold that
caused him to be in a most misera
ble condition. It was undoubtedly
a bad case of la grippe and recog
nizing it as dangerous he took im
mediate steps to bring about
speedy cure. From the advertise
ment of Chamberlain’s Cough
Remedy and the many good recom
mendations included therein, we
concluded to make a first trial of
the medicine. To say that it was
satisfactory in its results, is put
ting it very mildly, indeed. It
acted like magic and the result was
a speedy and permanent cure .
