•H- -so Woolfolk, the head waitor at Mose
ley’s, in Valdosta, fell suddenly dead ou
Wodnesday nigut last while sitting in a
chair in the billiard and pool room. He did
not sneak or oven groan. It is supposed
that he died of heart disease. Mose Wool
folk came from Macon as a waiter for the
Piney Woods hotel, in Thomasville, some
time since, and from thence drifted to Val
dosta. He was a quiet and well behaved
negro, and was liked by those who know
him. It is said that lie lias relatives in
A bear male his appearance in (ho neigh
borhood of Big creek church of Thomas
countv a few days ago, and a number of
the citizens, with guns and hounds, went
out in quest of him, but failed to jump him.
On Saturday morning, however, after a
three hours’ chase, bruin was brought to
bay by the hounds, when he was shot. The
hear was a young one, weighing about 130
pounds. It is supjiosed to have come up the
Ochlockonoe from Florida, and doubtless
took quarters on Big creek because of the
fame of that neighborhood for place and
plenty to eat. t
Lumpkin is complaining about the
gradual increase in the population of her
jail, and fears that additional accommoda

ners. Last Monday an attempt wus made
to break jail. A Mr. Butler, who lives in
the lower story of the jail, went up to the
cells to carry the prisoners their breakfast,
while Sheriff Griffis remained at the outer
door or lower entrance. The prisoners made
a rush past Butler to get out. The f< iromost
one passed by the sheriff, who seized and
threw him down, while he drove the rest of
them back at the muzzle of Ins pistoi.
Americus Recorder: We learn that a
man named Harden was walking down the
road near Andersonville, Thursday, with a
heavy iron pin in his build, w hen a large
and ferocious bull dog durted from the
woods and sprang at his throat. Harden
dodged the dog and struck him a heavy
blow with the pin on the side. This seemed
only to infuriate the beast and he turned
more savagely on the man, who hail nil ho
could do to keep out of the gleaming teak
of the dog. By a well directed blow on the
head he at last knocked the dog down, stun
ning it, when he repeated his blows until
the animal was killed. Harden, with
nearly all of his clothes torn off, walked a
few paces and tumbled over from exhaus
tion. We learn that he wus in no wise
hurt, and after a short rest went on bis
There is consideru!ile excitement at G rnnt-
Tille ova* a group of springs that have been
lately opened up within 450 yards of the
depot in that place. The water of me of
these springs is high* impregnated with
iron, one with sulphur and one with alutn.
Near by is ono spring running out from un

one is clear and cool. Then ah- ut 100 yards
further down are two other springs gushing
out from under a steep bill. The water Of
those two is nearly us cold as ice and clear
as crystal. The grove or woods in which
these springs arc lias lieen trimmed up, the
undergrowth cut out and roads opened no

been leveled off for wulking or bicycle
riding. There is also a splendid place for a
lake for fishing, Lathing and boat riding.

Two years ago Paul Haller of Butler
oounty, Ohio, removed with ins family to
Bronwood, Terrell county. He brought
with him $l5O and a few household
goods. The first year he rented a farm and
invested bis money in a mule and necessary
fanning implements. Ho mode a living
for himself and family tbo first year and
saved S3OO. With this money he made the
first payment ou a farm of 150 acres two
miles from Bronwood, which he bought for
$l,lOO. He has fine prospects for a big crop,
and lias no fears but that lie can make his
payments on bis farm and in the course of
a couple of years be free from debt and
have a good farm. He might have stayed
in Ohio until he died and never have any
prospect of owning such a farm. Haller's
experience is a proof of what we have -o
hften asserted—that a poor mail who is
willing to work and economize can in u
few years become an Independent farmer
in Georgia.
Ton thousand copies of a pamphlet, de
scribing tiainsvillo, the, queen city of the
mountains, and the country and places of
note adjacent to the mountain city, have
just been Issued, and are being distributed
throughout the United States w ith a view
of turning the attention of capitalists,
health and wealth seekers to this part of
the moral vineyard, which is fast coming
into prominence as the Eden of America.
The pamphlet is profusely illustrated by
the public buildings of the city, together
with the number of private residences.
The painphletgives a running history of the
oity.fromtlie coming of the Air-Line rail
road to date,showing the wonderful growt h
in population, prosperity, commerce,
manufacturing enterprises, houses,
schools, churches, mineral
springs, delightful oiimuto, pure gwater,
hotels and resorts. Reaching out i to the
country adjacent, it treats of the mining
interests which are attracting the attention
of minors not only in the United States, but

Americus Recorder: George W. Poster,
of the Twenty-eighth district, says; "Eleven
years ago I caught a four-inch catfish, and
finding that it was alive dropped it into a
wall. Moving off several hundred yards
farther, I covered the well up and let it re
main that way for three years, when I un
covered and put anew curbing in it. The
fish was then about ten inches long, and I
kept it in a tub of water half a day, and
then lowered it into the well again. I had
forgotten all about tho fish, until last
Wednesday, when a negro boy who was
looking down into tho well spat into the
water. The fish darted for the spittle, aiui
the negro jumped back, saving: ‘Marso
George, dere is a alligator in dcre.’ I looked
in and saw nothing, but tho negro dropped
a pebble into the water, when a mouth like
a barn door popped up to gather its prey.
It was no alligator, but tho catfish I dropped
in there elven years ago, and 1 am going to
feed him up, catch him and bring bun to
pawn. He is all of three feet long, and has
a head like a bull.”
John Hurst who has just passed through
the upper portion of Macon county told the
Americus Recorder that two or three
months ago a very Intelligent looking ycung
man called on a sturdy old farmer for work,
and as he needed a hand he omploved him.
The young man gave his name as Niro, and
said Be was from Missouri, and he was a
very good field hand. Tho old farmer had
ail only daughter, and the two young peo
ple soon fell in love with each other, which
produced a commotion with the giri’s pa
rents. They ripped, raved and snorted and
turned the young fellow off. The girl
swore she would do as Urn good book said,
father and mother and cling to
him,” but the young chap told her to wait
until bo could make her a homo, went to u
neighbor’s and obtained work. Tho old
folks, iu order to drive him from the neigh
borhood, swore out a warrant against him
for larceny. This oporuted so seriously on
the young girl tlmt she is now a raving ma
niac, but the old people say they would
rather for her to be in that condition than
the wife of a person named Niro. The young
man proved liis innocence and is going to
prosecute them for slander and cruelty to
their duughter.
“A philanthrophic act most assuredly and
one which every merchant in Atlanta can
well afford to Imitate," was the remark
made by a gentleman of high standing
in hearing of a Capitol reporter on .Satur
day. ou see there lias been a movement
here for several seasons to close our busi
ness bongos at 0 and (1:30 o'clock. Well,
this, no doubt, has boon of great benefit to
many, and yet the city has suffered untold
thousands as the result. You see by this
early closing craze before the sun has set,
our principal thoroughfares give the city
the appearance of being dead, no life,
and to a stranger and visitors iu our city
this lias a very bad effect in a business wav.
Now, if our merchants, instead of closing
up their stores before dark, would adopt
the plau of giving in turn their employes a
week or two vacation, at tho same time
coniinuing their salary, 1 am of the opin
ion that everyone of the clems would hail
the change with delight. Surely an hour
or so in the evening is of very little
value to the individual, and a week of rest
and recreaction would be of untold bonfit.
In my opinion the firm of Carlton & Hon,
tho well-known grocers, who have adopted
this plan, have exercised true benevolence
and put into practice a splendid idea.”
Macon lludget: H. Bowen, the de
faulting bookkeeper of 8. Waxelbaum &
Son, was not satisfied with robbing his em
ployer and friends, but even| stooped to
swindle and steal from his old cook. Ade
line Ranks is an old colored woman over (50
years old, and at. present is just able to
leave a bed of sickness. For many years
she was the faithful servant of W. B.
Fleck, and during the last years of himself
and wife their devqted nurse. The old gen
tleman remembering, when his days were
drawing to a close, the faithfulness of tho
old soul, left her in his will S3OO. With the
money due in wages George R. Barker, the
executor, paid over to her about SOOO. Blio
had, when she went to work for Bower),
something over S3OO of this money left.
In some manner he learned this and com
menced immediately to try and borrow it.
Bho would not let him, however, have but
$153 50, for which he gave her the follow
ing note: “Received of Adeline Ranks
$153 50 to be invested in ns safe and legiti
mate a manner as possible to realize as
much interest as possible and practicable
for her benefit., H. C. Bowen.” He told
her that he had loatied the money to Mr.
Waxelbaum. The old woman had anew
machine which she allowed Mrs. Bowen to
take and use. This too is missing.

in tho near future are favorable indeed,and
thero should boar alignments made for the
proper care of it when produced. When
we think of the thousands of bushels of
vegetables that ar • now rotting in the
fields just because thero is no establishment
to prepare the products for market, we
wonder whv it is that our people have not
done something toward this industry. That
it would tie a paying investment to more

cident is related of a small sized political
meeting that was held in the back room of

last Tuesday night. Thero wore present
about a dozen and a half gentlemen, and
three or four of them had already addressed
the meeting, tho members of which had
become rather tired, when up jumped the
fifth speaker. The orator had been trying
to get the floor all the evening, and' the
boys had that far succeeded in keening him
in the background, tearing the effect upon
tlieir temper I)is prospective long-winded
effort might produce. But now he was
fairly launched forth. He reached the
middle of a well-studied effort and was
on his way down to a thunder-clapping
period, as he thought, his subject, "The
Tariff,” when one of his auditors arose and
said lie would like to a k the speaker a
question. "I want to know,” said lie, "if
you ever heard what the editor of the Chi

who was taken wholly by surprise with the
interruption, and whose uplifted hand in

lute wonderment as to the occasion of the
query; "what was iti” "Rats!” was the
unsympathetic reply. The boys roared, the
speaker sat down discomfited, aud the meet

house, carried some distance on horseback
and severely whipped. The mon were
masked and they broke down tho door to
gain entrance to the house. The airl claims
to have recognized the party, and her testi
mony is corroborated by her mother, who
was sleeping in the same building. On the
other hand the men charged with the crime
have each proved an alibi.

The Pear Crop Damaged.
From the Thomasville limes.
On Tuesday, Juno 19. this section was
visited by rain and brisk winds, which
blew off some of the pears, and on Wednes
day and Thursday of this week, heavier
rains fell, accompanied by stiffer winds.
These three disasters injured tiio pear crop
of this vicinity very seriously. About one
hulf of the fruit, it’is estimated, was blown
olf. Over what breadth of country the dis
aster prevailed, we have not learned, but if
general, the pear growers of Southern
Georgia have sustained losses that would
aggregate quite a handsome sum. Some of
the fallen limit w ill be utilized by being
canned and preserved, aud some of it will
be shipped, but much of it is bruisod and
w ill eituer be a complete loss in the hands
of grow ers or reduce the t rice of shipments.
The winds also damaged corn, but not to
any great extent. Mst of the cotton is too
small to have boon materially injured.
The weather is still threatening and fears
are entertained that the worst has not come.
Old, But Awfully Good.
The natives of a little fishing village toll
a good story of a “literary feller,” fair, tat,
40 and poninous, whoso home is rot 100
miles from Nov York city, and who once
went to Nantucket for the summer, writes
a St Louis tllobe correspondent. The
morning after his arrival, like Sltnon Peter,
he determined to go tt-tt-liing. Ho, im
maculately arrayed, he sallied forth, and
nwx-eodei tn interview the first setxiy-look
ing fisherman te saw digging in his garden.
‘‘l say—l want to go a-fishing.”
“Wul, the country’s free; wuat’s to hin
der! Goon."
“But—l want some worms for bait, aud I
want you to dig them."
“They sartaitily make mighty good bait,’’
answered the old fisherman, going coolly on
with his gardon.
"Hang it, man,” rotorted the pompous pro
fessor, "perhnps you don’t know who I am?
Pm Henry Hay is Brownson of Emperia col
••Wall!" answered tho independent old
salt, placing his arras akimbo, “perhaps
vim don’t know who I am, neither. I’m
