Deputy Sheriff Jim Britton, of
Andalusia, had an experience last
Saturday morning which was far
from pleasant, and one he will not re
call with fascinating memories, either.
Sheriff Gordon has in his possession
what is supposed to be a pet wolf,
but it will be a long time ere he
cains that reputation in the eves of
Jim. Saturdav Jim had occasion to
go into the jail yard, and the wolf,
seeming overjoyed at meeting him,
broke his chain and ran to him and
jumped on him as would a dog.
"He kept growling." said Jim, "but
I thought he was only playing, when
all at once he caught me by the leg
and bit me." - Jim. as a rn1. is

Recovered Throagh m Dream.
In 1877 an uncle of mine livinsr in
Desoto, Mo., was murdered for his
money. The murderer onlv cot a
small amount in greenbacks, and no
clue to his hidden gold could be
found, until I consulted Madam
Hutchinson, and I entered into an
agreement with her. She caused me
to dream to the exact spot where the
money was buried. I then went to
the spot indicated in my dream, and
after a little digging, found a box
containing f 2,500 in gold.
