father was killed later in the day in
his own house and the son arrested.

new trial, but there is little hope of
his escaping the extreme penalty of
the law.
Robberies are growing too fre

a year ago. Brooker had killed
their father, George Zeigler, the
previous year. The young men
were tried separately, Solomon’s
trial terminating on Friday of last
week, and Corire's on Monday. It
was a hard-fought legal battle,
Judge H. D. D. Twiggs leading the
prosecution and Col. T. E, Watson
the defense.
Capt. J. C. Bryan, county school
commissioner of Screven county,
died suddenly on Saturday evening
at his home in Sylvania. Ha walked
home from the court housa in appar
ent health. A few moments after
complaining of a burning pain in his
chest he was taken with convulsions

| year-old colored boy, pleaded guilty
I before Justice Foute to burglary.

and will be harder to catch next timo.
On Saturday Principal Keeper of
the Penitentiary Turner removed
fourteen convicts from Fulton county
jail to the penitentiary. Under our
penal system, boys sent up for a short
term for petty larceny, soon return

hardened criminals, a chaingang for
boys cannot be beaten.
Ben Osborn, the lunatic who has
been held in Fulton county jail for
some weeks under the charge of
murder, has been sent to the lunatic
asylum. There seems to be no doubt
that Osborn is crazy. For a day be
fore the killing Osborn’s brother
made every effort to have him ar
rested, assuring the authoiities that
he was as crazy as a March hare. If
prompt action have been taken the
killing would not have occurred.
J. J. Burrows, eighteen years old,
was arrested Tuesday night on the
charge of forgery and looked up in
the Atlanta station house. He is a
brother of the mayor of Bristol
Tenn., and a cousin of Gov Bob
Taylor. The young man indignantly
denies that he is guilty of forgery.
He says that needing some money,
he drew a small check on his brother
in Tennessee. Being a stranger in
the city, he gave the check to
Owens, an acquaintance, to get it
endorsed. Owens returned with
Dr. E. H. Barnett's name on
the check, and if the name is a forg

police think that Owens has skipped

As a Sun reporter was meauder
ing slowly over that pi.t of the lea
contiguous to City Hall park, he
picked up a pocketbook much to his
delight and unexpected luck, but ere
he had time to transfer its contents
to his inside pocket a policeman ap
peared on the the scene, just as po
liceman always do when there is no
call for them, and don’t, vice versa.
•‘Ahem?” observed the reporter,
also observing the polioeman.
“Um?” remarked the policeman,
also remarking the pocketbook in the
willing hands of the reporter.
“Well?” observed the reporter, in
jecting a kind of a what-are-you-go
ing-to do-about-it tone into the ver
biage of his communioation with the
guardian of the peace.
“It belongs to you, I suppose?”
said the policeman insinuatingly.
“What?” inquired tho reporter
with such lamblike innocence that
the wool ia the policeman’s coat act
ually began to curl.
“That,” and the policeman nodded
toward the pocketbook.
“Oh, ah, excuse me, I beg you r
pardon,” Lastly responded the re.
porter, “I was thinking about some
thing else.”
“Found another one?” suggested
the polioeman with pleasant insouci
“No, of course not. However
since you have asked if this belongs
to me, I’ll take a look through it and
see,” and the reporter opened up his
A careful examination, made with
the insistent assistance of the police
man, revealed only a card and a bit

porter paused to inquire about the
general moral tone of the city in
that neighborhood during the past
twelve hours. “It wasn’t a pocket,
book, but it was the next thing to
“Money?” inquired the reporter,
who thought money ought to be the
next thing to a pocketbook, though
he didn’t remember to have had any
personal knowledge of such things.
“Next thing to that,” continued
the polioeman. “It was a bank book
which the owner had dropped just
after having had it made up at the
bank, for the book had all the checks
entered and was balanced, though
the canceled checks were not there.”
“He had probably sent the can.
celed checks in to have the coupons
cut off,” suggested the reporter.
“The queer part of it,” proceeded
the policeman, without noticing what
the reporter said, “was the people
who had got the money. The name
of the man oa the book is a very
well known one and—”
“What it is?” asked the reporter
“Nay, nay, Pauline Hall,” nega
tived tho polioeman. “You know
him better than I do, and I don’t
want to give him away.”
“Sell him?” hinted the reporter.
“That’s all right,” grinned the po
liceman. “I opened the bank book
out of curiosity, and was surprised
to find that he had as much as a hun
dred dollars to his credit, but more
surprising was the list of names on
the book of the people who had ap
parently got money from our friend,
for nobody in these parts would ever
suspect him of being on terms with
that kind of people. For instance,
there was a check for $11.35 paid to

shut up his notebook, from, which he

amounts of money like that from

over to him and ask him about it, but
I thought he would lie to me anyhow,
so I went to the bank and called out
one of the clerks I had had some
dealings with, and I asked him whst
it stood for. He gave me a tiny bit
of haw-haw, not much, but enough,
and told me tho world was full of
cranks, and this’ fellow was several of
them, with a leading fad to make his
personal checks out to the name of
some distinguished citizen or other,
or bearer, and draw the money him
self. It was a harmless kind of a
case, the clerk said, and as long as he
didn’t make a check out for some
thing that he didn’t have in the bank*
it wasn’t doing any harm to any
body. Then I handed over the book,

and persons showed conclusively that
there was.
