She and her husband occupy the old house formerly belonging to Thomas A. Kilgore, who was in the merchandise business here during and for some years after the war of the sixties, and it is thought by some that it was dur ing that time that this gold was melted and buried by him, as there was a great deal of gold dug and sold here at that tijne. The property is now owned by Colonel W. P. Price, of this place. • ljjrs. Roberts is very much elated her good fortune, as the lump is estimated to be worth at least $400 by some of the oldest miners here. It will be turned over to the professor of mines and minerals of the North Geor gia Agricultural College Monday to determine just what the real value is. It Is a common occurrence to pick up small nuggets on the streets here af ter a hard rain, but this is the first burled gold that has ever been dis covered, and will cause many gardens to be worked more diligently than they have been for many years. over * REAL E8TATE TRAN8FER8. ♦ The following deeds were filed for record yesterday.

I As might be assumed In the case of a people who give expression to their religious feeling by many an) out-1 ward manifestation and symbol, the three great events, birth, marriage and death, are the three eminent oc casions of pronounced religious as well as social celebrations. Church festivals are always accompanied by music of some sort, either orchestra brass band or choir, and sometimes by all of these. During the Spanish American war a popular air, sung by soldiers, was a melody which had its Inception in San Francisco. It was a lively melody of the rag-time type, "A Hot Time In the Old Town Tonight." It Is not an unusual thing for this tune to be played at funerals in the provinces. This Is not due to the unfee'.ingness of the people but It Is the only tune they hive learped from the Americans. In the Islands a birth is regarded as one of the Important events of the community, and the welfare of moth er and child becomes the subject of much solicitude on the part of father and grand parents. Baptism usually takes place a week or ten days after the youngster's birth. The babe Is borne to church by its mother or some near relative, at the head of a long profession of the men and women of the community. In a provincial tow^l of less than three thousand inhab-1 Hants may be seen a procession of 1 more than three city blocks in length, I the whole company walking In double 1 file cleanly attired. At the church the parents and god-1 parents assemble about the babe while the rite of baptism is solemnly observed. The pledges at the god parents Is most impressive, and Its significance rises above that of a mere formal observance. It Is followed out in after life, and the children are ever highly regarded by the 'god-parents, and by them are cherished. Many children whose fathers are unable to afford them schooling are educated | by their god-parents who are often unrelated to them by blood. After the baptism there is usually a feast and generally a dance. In the Philippines a dance le a social event to which the volatile nature of the people readily lends itself. It 1 b a frequent amusement among, the poor est as well as the wealthiest, and always the waltz is the favorite. Dancing Is by no menas confined to the young people, for the native matron will be flattered by your in vitation, and on the floor she will glide easily no matter what her age. There are a number of native dances, some of which are danced by young girls alone. Sometimes there Is a wierdness In these native dances, es pecially among the semi-savage tribes of Negritos where a combined chant and dance is solemnized to the sun. The stranger In the provinces is amazed to see the ease with which the women partic'pate in the dances with their slippers which an American could not keep oif the feet. On rare occasions the slipper ,falls off, but the girl keeps on dancing bare foot ed around to where the slipper was dropped and then deftly catches it on her foot and- continues on in the dance without interruption. Marriage In the Philippines some times takes place at a very early age, but this Is unusual. Generally the young people do not marry until they have reached the age of 18. Some marriages of 12 and 14 are recorded but these are tot usual.
