Crushed to Death l>y a Snake.
Tube Wesley, of Twiggs county, Ga.,
went to Mucou a day or two ago to buy
a colliu for his seven-year-old son, who
whs crushed to death by a huge snake.
The boy had gone to the Geld with his
father, and while his lather was

expecting to lind bim there, but was
in tunned by his wife that the boy had

with his father. Feeling no uneasinci
Wesley, knowing the habits of his boy,
went back to the field, which was on
the edge of a dense swamp bordered
with muscadine vines, and began search?
ing the vines where lie had la^t .-een
the boy. By looking up in the vines
he was not long in finding him, but
v/hen he called the boy failed to an?

and receiving no answer the father.shook

had supposed to be one of the branches
of the vine that was supporting his son.
begin to uncoil. Realizing that bis son
was in the coil oi a huge snake, Wesley
stood rooted to the spot, and before he
could recover his senses the snake com?
pletely uncoiled ami the boy fell to the
ground, a distance of nine or ten feet.
Wesley picked the child up and ran
from under the vines to the clearing.
There his worst fears were realized.
The child was dead. On being carried
to the house ami further examination
made, il was found that the child's
breast had been crushed and that its
tongue and eyes were protruding as
though it had been choked to death.
Wesley is of the opinion that the boy
was asleep when the snake coiled about
him and gradually crushed his life out.
Wesley docs not know what kind of a
snake it was, as he did not see it after
his son fell.?Augusta, (la., Chronicle.
His Dead Sure Rheumatism Cube.
?a Lewiston undertaker tells the fol?
lowing story about his being startled
out of a two-mouths' attack of rheuma?
tism:
"A body had been brought into my
rooms from the river, where it had
been two days, and after locking the
doors and lighting a lamp?it was lute
at night?[commencedto prepare the
remains lor burial. The body, that of
a strong, rugged man, supposed to
have been a dump, was lying upon my
embalming table, and to assist in dis?
robing it I raised one arm in the air and
tied the hand by a string from the ceil?
ing, i dropped a pair of scissors on
the floor, and was stooping slow ly to
pick them up, when I received a stag?
gering blow ? ni the head, and at the
same tiu.e felt the cold hand of the
dead mac fall off my head and s:iike
the lamp, putting it out, and Ieaviag n e
i'i total darkness. 1 hud not taken a
lively step for weeks, but I can assure
you that 1 moved out of that dark
room in a hurry, und I did not go there
again till daylight. And I have not
suffered from rheumatism since that
night. I found that the lamp had
burned off the string, so that the arm
fell, striking me."?J)<tilj/ Kennchec

Murders His Wife and Attempt8
suicide.?A murder and an attempt at
suicide occurred in Reading, Pa., yes?
terday. The murderer was Reuben
H. Wallers, aged fifty-five years, a
hatter by trade, and the victim his
wife, aged forty five years. Walters
was of a quarrelsome disposition, and
came home drunk Monday night. He
immediately began a quarrel with his
wife, and the two renewed the dispute
yesterday morning and afternoon.
While they were in their bedroom,
Wallers drew u weapon 'and shot his
wife three times, one bullet entering
her body near the heart, and the other
lodging in her head. The woman
dragged herself downstairs into the
kitchen, where the neighbors found her
dead. Meanwhile, Walters placed the
pistol to his bead and tired two shots,
which did but little harm. The police
then arrived and arrested Walters.
Mrs. Walters was a woman of line per?
sonal appearance, and her husband was
insanely jealous of her. They have six
children.

A notbcr word to the good people of Alex?

us a e.ill and to inspect the offerings we have
been making for (he last few weeks, it is need?
less for us lo say anything in the way of ex?
planation of what we are doing. Our bar?
gains are more convincing than columns of
argument and our prices more eloquent than
mere words. But to those who are shy and
backward, and who are suspicious of "sales"
gotten up now ai d then by merchants to boom
tm.sii ess, we desire to say a few words to-daj
In the first place we want you to under?
stand that this is no "fake" selling out. It
isn't done foi pleasure, and it isn't done for
profit Stern necessity caused the institution
of this sale. Stern necessity fixed the prices.
Stern necessity again demands a cut in juices
regardless of the value, cost and desirability
of the Goods, Wan sand Merchandise we have
-till on hand
Tl c law says that this estate must be speed?
ily wound up. and wind up is the word even
?f we have to pi a tically give the goods awav.
Now. if we have convinced you that this is
i bona tide clearing out, and have gained
nough of your confidence to have you be
it -.e thai our object is to get rid of the goods
we have at any prices', we will, for the pur
pose of convincing those who have not visited
our MAMMOTH SLAUGHTER SALE that
we offer the bargains of a life-time, quote
some prices we have made on popular and d ?
-iiab'e goods. Figures, we know, don't lie, so
we will b t them speak for themselves. Look
over our list carefully, and if you see'anything
von want, cut out the advertisement, and put
you linger on the article and come to us, and
you will u-' t the stuff exactly as advertised.
I'o onr numerous friends who have been in to

that this picnic can't last much longer. .Make
