The State Fair afforded pick-pock
ets a profitable field. Numbers of
persons had their pockets picked, and
in some instances large amounts were
stolen. Dr. John I. Ingram, of this
county,was robbed of $40 by one of
the light-fingered gentry. Even a
miniter's cloak was no protection
againsttheir raids. We learn that

Mr. Bass is now the pastor of a Bap.

of about 5000 inhabitants. We are

Mr. N. A. Hall, the depot agent at
this place, is within himself a manu
factory for telegraph operators. He
has already fitted several young men
to take charge of offices, and now has
a large class that he will soon turn out

the young gentlemen who enjoy Mr.
Hall's tuition, his exceeding populari
ty with his employers enables him to
ecure subordinate positions for all of
his graduated pupils.

Captain W. D. Fitch showed us a
ew days ago a pocket knife which was
round in the gizzard of a large turkey
obbier killed at bis place. The knife
s three and a half inches long and
Lbout the size of an ordinary knife.
The handle is made of dark colored
born and trimmed with bright metal
it each end, which no doubt caused
he turkey to take it for some kind of
insect. The handle of the knife shows
signs of having been wasted by diges
tion. The turkey was healthy and
rat. Capt. Fitch's mother lost the
knife that was found as above stated.
[t is curious how such a large, hard
instrument could be swallowed by a
turkey, and how it could survive with
it in his gizzard.-County Record.
