A Murderous Assault Made on a Citi zen of Adairsville Without Provoca tion—An Aged Negress’ Son Killed at a Conviot Camp Just Belore He Was to be Discharged. GEORGIA. The fate of the p*a-h crop in Monroe county is still uncertain. The Forsyth Advertiser wants a branch of the Young Men’s Christian Association established there. The late fre-ze and unfavorable weather have rendered the replanting of garden seed necessary in Moure county. There is a probability of the Rockmur* State, a weekly newspaper, being moved to Adairs vide, as every Inducement is offered by the citizens. A young M. D., of Adairsville, who is just beginning to •■walk" i:i the practice of medicine here, spoils as a charm for his watch chain a human ear. There is a movement on foot among the ladies of Macon, headed by Miss Carrie Butts to present a handsome silk flag to the Macon Volunteers on their anniversary, April 33. The dry goods house of B. F. Bibb, of Adairsville was 1 adly damaged the other night by some burglar attempting an en trance through the front doors which were splintered with some sharp instrument be sides having a wedge driven in between the doors in order to prize them open.

On Saturday as Scott Parham was riding along the mad in some part of Hammock s district, Crawford county, a horse which was running at large attacked the one he, was riding, and in ai tempting to part them Mr. Parham was kicked on the face, receiv ing a terrible blow. No bones were broken but his face was terribly bruised. Lucius Holt, the negro barber who got into trouble in Greensboro, was lodged in jail, and attempted ta commit suicide by cutting his throat, has been released from confinement and is new' in Athens, so far recovered from his self-inflicted wounds that he is able to walk around. It is thought that Lucius’ rash act was only a shrewd dodge to get out of jail. At Adairsville, Eli Blantan, was ta be Carrie 1 before the Ordinary Tuesday to lie tried for lunacy. H• a tempted ta kill his wife Monday, and bad it not been for the presence of bis brother, who took the stick of wcodbom him with which he made the attempt, he would have killed her outright. He has been demented for some time. His home is in Texas. His mother lives at Adairsville. Maj. Lamar Cobb, the Treasurer of the State University at Athens, has gone to Atlanta to interview Gov. Gordon, and en deavor to secure the immediate payment of the appropriation of $15,000 for the Agri cultural College and station.

Just as a passenger train was nearing Big Shanty Monday t wo men seated in a buggy drove furiously into the place, they were wet and muddy and the horse was covered with foam, as if all three bad been having a long trip in the rain. Dismounting the men hitched the horse and after asking the name of the place purchased tickets4ur At lanta. In a few minutes the train arrived, and without giving any Instructions about the horse and buggy the men got on board and wore soon movine toward Atlanta. In the lower end of Washington county two brothers, Henry and Purify Holmes, have for some vears boon conducting it large turpentine business together, and in an effort to dissolve and settle the firm’s business, they' disagreed mid resorted to blows. In the fight Henry, the smaller brother, shot Purify in the left side with a shotgun loaded with buckshot. A heavy silver watch caught a part of the load, and it is claimed this saved his life. The wound is regarded as serious, but not necessarily fatal. Freeman Brooks, a young farmer of "Wiltimon county, was killed on Monday night about 8:20 o'clock. Mr. Brooks ami several others were cutting old sap trees on the plantation of C. 8. Johnson, in the Bethel district of the county, to prevent the spread of flames to the woods. While rest ing after cutting down a tree a young man who was cutting one near by saug out to him to look out or the tree would fall on him. The warning came too late, and before he could move away the tree fell on him, crushing his head and limbs. He died ins'antly. Mr Brooks was about 22 years of age. At Adairsville, as Mr. Waldrip was re turning home, Mondav night aliout 9 o’clock, when near the now Methodist church, which is in the heart of town, some one rushed from the darkness, knocker! Mr. Waldrip down and plunged a knife into his left side. Fortunately, a pocket in his coat was full of letters and a heavy memo randum book besides, which saved his life, doubtless, us his top and under clothing were cut through, and the thrust penetrated the papers and book in his pocket. The grudge of the assassin is not known by Mr. Walrnip, as he is unaware of an enemy, and he never carries any money about liis person. • Abraham Gibson, of Baker county, was arrested a day or two ago upon an o!a war rant issued bv his w ife charging him with desertion uud kidnaping onoof the children. It seems that Gibson and his wife separated some years ago. The former went to where his wife was living and carried off one of the children. Bhe tiecame very ungry and had him arrested, getting back the boy. He escaped from confinement and since then the ■wife, tiring of caring for the child, was anxious for him to take it back aguin, and upon his refusal to do so issued the warrants for him which, after three years, were served Monday, when Gibson male his ap pearance in Albany. He is so angry with his wife for taking his bey away from him, and then changing her mind and trying to force him to take him back again, that tie swears he will die before he will take him back, and thus the matter s ands. An old negro woman named Mis ouri Jones, of Macon, had a son who was sent, to the penitentiary from Baldwin ccuntv for forge y, when be was only 10 years old. Next October that sentence would have expired. As he grew older lie learned how to write, and his letters from the convict camp came often. He had gone from her a baby, and the wai looking forward to October when he would return to her a big grown man. Last Saturday, a week ago, while blasting near Bremen, on the Georgia Pacific railroad, at Capt. J. \V. McCue’s camp, Jesse Brooks, the con vict. was covered by a falling wull an 1 smothered to death. The Stab- allows the bodies of convicts, when not claimed, to go to the medical colleges to be cut up for the instruction of the young doctors. As Jess i was a remarkably tine sjiecimen, the doc tors soon had the UMy in pickle at the med ical college in Atlanta, ami were waiting an opportunity to dissect him. The old woman had a hard time to recover it, and get it to Macon for burial. William Reed, of Albany, is much ex cited over his wife's deserting him. When ho married her she was a Mow, Mrs. Jen nie Lofton by name, and made a living with the needle. .She was wooed and won by- Mr. Reid, and she transferred her affections and one child, a little girl, to Sir. Reid’s keeping. Not long after the wedding the child showed what her step-father thought the effects of bad training, and said some naughty words to her new parent. He forthwith, after administering a severe re- I buke upon the evil of such speech, attempted !to chastise her. The mother was \> rv an ! gry and quit her new husband. He at i tempted ta win her back to him. She at ! lat consented and he advance.! her the means to pay the dravage on her furniture, I which she promised to have carried back to ' lxis house the next day. She went to the 1 lane with him, and as they parted she kiss., i | him good-by. The next day she applied to the Mayor for assistance to leave town, stating that she was a widow in destitute circumstances,- and with her husband’s money in her pocket and accompanied by her little girl, she took the next train from Albany.
