FOUND IN RUTHERFORD CREEK .
Jim Collin, of llelfttat. Meet Death In
a MyHteiloun. Manner.
The body of a white man was
found in Rutherford Creek, near
Godwin, last Saturday evening,
about three-fourths of a mile below
the railroad bridge and on the farm
of Mr. John Caldwell. The persons
who made the find fed the body to
the bank of the stream, and after
wards notified the authorities in
Col unibia. Messrs. West & Nichols,
the undertakers, went out Sunday
morning and brought the remains
to town. The body was clothed in
jrans pants, a hickory shirt and a
grey-striped coat, aud $93.95 in
money was found in the pockets and
$10 75 in notes made payable to Zzra
A large number of persons saw
the remains Sunday, and they were
finally identified as those of Jim
Collins, of Belfast, Marshall county,
by the authorities telephoning to
Collins left his home on Wednes
day morning of last week, stating to
his family that he was going to
Lewisburg to draw $95 from the
bank and would return that night.
He acted strangely, and returned to
the gate several times before he left
to tell his boy good bye.
The supposition is that he fell or
was knocked lrom the bridge by a
train, while walkingon the railroad,
although there were no marks of
violence on his body.
The remains were shipped Mon-
day morning to Belfast, where the
I burial took place.

THROUGH DIXIE LAND.
Nearly 3,000 I'nlted State lleiilar
I'm Th rod til Here Wednesday,
More soldiers passed through Co
lumbia this week than at any time
since the Civil war. Since the
order of the War Department that
all the regular troops of the United
States Army this side of the Rocky
Mountains be mobilized at Tampa,
Chickamauga, New Orleans and
Mobile, an exodus of blue coats has
followed to those places.
Wednesday the troops from M.
Thomas, Ky., and Ft. Sheridan
passed through Columbia en route
to Mobile and Tampa, where within
a few hours time, they can be trans
ferred to Cuban soil to fight for a
suffering people. Eight train-loads
passed over the L. & N., carrying
nearly 3,000 troops, besides pro
visions, ammunition, live stock,
wagons, etc. Large crowds met
each train at the depot during the
day, but at night, when the Fourth
Regiment from FortSheridan passed
through, the scene was an especially
Impressive one. There were fifteen
coaches in the train, with 650
soldiers aboad. Nearly 1,500 men,
women and children gathered
around the train as it pulled In and
greeted the troops with enthusiastic
cheers, which were answered by
loud yells from the coaches. The
train stopped for ten or fifteen min
utes, during which time the citizens
I shook hands and conversed with the
soldiers, wishing them God-speed
and victory on their solemn mission.
As the train pulled out another
cheer arose, and cries of ''Cuba
librel" "Remember the Maine!"
"Hurrah for Fitzhugh Lee I" were
joined in by both the soldiers and
The soldiers were a healthy-looking
stalwart lot of men, aud the Dons
will no doubt find out within a short
time that they are good fighters.
