A Methodist minister by the name of C.
M. Verdell, while on his way from Texas
to North Georgia, was arrested In Monroe
by the poliea of that town on Tuesday
night of last week and imprisoned in the
town prison until the following morning
before he was released. He was arrested
under the supposition that he was the man
Bunch who robbed the expreas car on the
Northwestern railroad about the frst of
this month. -Monroe is unfortunate in its
record of happenings of mistaken identity.
Pour years ago Gen. King had the same
experience in that town while passing
through on his way to the hills this side,
but the General was too sharp to be shut
up in the look-up all night. Maybe the
Monroe police will some day learn the dif
Sfrence between a Congressman or a Meth
odist preacher and a train robber.

A Wenderful Curiosity.
There is now on exhibition in thi"cllty a
wonderful freak of animal nature in the
way of a cow with a living calf growing
out between her shoulders. The cow is
almost pure white, is of medium size and is
said to be part Jersey. She was calved in
Uyaldo county, Texas, near Savenel Ste
tion, and is about two years old. Beyond
the deformity of the calf growing from her
weathers and hanging down her side she is
perfectly formed. It is well worth one' 15
cents to see such a freak.
