1 Vt RECKED HAUL
A Sensational Story From Ne shoba County. A MAXKIZIt WOMAN KI.OPK4 WITH 'A ljhber, (.enving Her llml.inl l.iMleC hildron. mill Atlanta, (ia., Dec. js J. I. Philyaw, accompanied by his re creant wife and little two-year-old boy, passed through the city today on his way to his home at Phila delphia, Miss. The man who he charges with breaking up his home. John T. Alexander, is in jail at Athens. Philyaw tells the story of his troubles in this way: 'Eight years ago I married Miss Susie Gunn, the daughter of Kev. 1. 1 Gunn. one of the most prom inent Baptist ministers in the State of Mississippi. We lived happily together and to us have been born four children- two girls and two bo vs the youngest being now with its mother I always treated my wife kind ly and she was to me a model one. No man ever had a better wife than I up to last week, when this terrible occurrence happened. All is now dark before me and my life is ruined. We lived in Neshoba county, Miss., and for some time 1 was postmaster at North Demi, my wife being my assistant. I was a merchant and farmer. Near us lived John T. Alexander, who ran a public gin. lie is a married man. . 'T never had any suspicion of my wife until Sunday one week ago. On that night it appeared to me that she was trying to have a private conversation with Alexan der, and I mentioned the fact to her, and she abused me for being jealous. "Monday I had to go to Meri dian en business, and left, little breaming of the wrecked home that was to follow. Tuesday night iuv wife and little babv bov were taken off by Alexander and next 'day I was notified by friends cf what had occurred. I hastened to follow them. Over 500 men wanted to go with me and mete out pun ishment to the destroyer of my home, but I finally turned them back. I followed the couple and traced them from place to place. I interviewed some gentlemen at each hotel where they had stopped as man and wife, and was told that my wife had been heard cry ing in her room and begging Alex ander to send her back home. I came straight on after them and found them in Athens. If 1 had met Alexander alone I would have killed him at sight, but when I first saw him 1 was in the hands of three policemen. "I want my wife back to' to go her lathers nome. 1 will never live with her again! but if she be haves herself 1 will support her the balance of her days in remember ance of the many years she made 1111 a faithful wife. She can see her children from time to time, but 1 propose to 1 ave them and take care of them." Mrs. Philyaw was almost hyster ical at times. She admitted doing wrong, but said Philyaw had been cruel to her. She said he never drank, but he was cross- and crab bed. She seemed to be perfectly infatuated with Alexander. When the officers carried him to jail she declared she would be willing to die it she could see him for five minutes. She subsequently wrote a note to him filled with endearing terms, and sent him some money that belonged to him. Shedeclared that she had nothing to live-lor and that just as soon as she could do so ahe proposed to take ber own life and end her misery. f . 1 1 1 She finally consented to go home with her husband, who is going to carry her to the home of her father Close watch was kept upon her to prevent her from taking her life. Mr. Philyaw swore out a warrant charging Alexander with adultery. He will send back requisition pa pers fof Alexander as soon as he goes home. It is said that Mrs. Philyaw made two efforts to commit suicid? while on her way to Atlanta from Athens. She tried to jump from the moving train, and also tried to get her husband's pistol, and the husband says he believes his wife was hypnotized by Alexander. Mr, and Mrs. Philyaw mentioned in the above tl ipatcb. through the city yesterday niorn i i n en route to the home of rela tives in Kemper county, near Lib erty church. As stated in the above account the recreant wife is a daughter of Rev. I. F. (iunn, a prominent minister residing in lvtmper and rc presentative-eieci from that countv. The parties j connected with the affair are well j known to Meridian .- numerous residents of -Meridian News. The wife of Mr. O IJoliison, a troni inent lumberman of Hartwi-k, N.

A poor old woman lived in a little house, with no other companion ship than a white bulldog. A few days ago her neighbors noticed that she bad not appeared, and, fearins she was ill, thev looked in at the window and saw her dead body lying on the bed. The faith ful dog lay across the door and re- h'sccl t0 'et any onc m l'lc house t or a long time no entrance couiti be effected, as they hesitated to shoot the dog; but at last one of the best-acquainted neighbors got a piece of meat and enticed the al- most starved beast into an out- kitchen, where he was shut up. The dog seemed to realize that he had been tricked, and, leaving ths meat, whined most piteously at the door until the corpse of his mis- tress had been taken away, When most needed it is not usual for your family physician to be away from home. Such was the experience of Mr. . I Y Sche.nek, editor of the-Caddo, Ind. Ter., llanner, when his little girl, two year of aire was threatened with a severe attack of croup. He ays: "My wife insisted that I go for the doctor, but as our family physician out of towo I purchased a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Uemedy, which reUwl her immediately.

A Yankee farmer' in Brazil who j longed for the cooling liquids of his native land, and was unatue to obtain them in that tropical coun- try, nas utilized a Kite ior ine pur pose ot obtaining ice. tie tins a tin can with water and sends it to the height of three miles, where it is promptly frozen. After a sufh- cicnt interval the kite is rapidly hauled in and the cake of ice is se- cured. The inventor is so pleased with his toy that he now proposes to send up a kite 150 feet long by a steel wire cable. Under the kite will be suspended a pully, over which runs an endless chain bear- ing cans attached to hooks. The , cans will be filled with water, and the speed of the belt upon which they run will be regulated so that tne topmost cans win oe convex ieu into ice, sufficiently hard to stand the downward journey. This is certainly the most original ice ma chine of which we have ever heard. We have the authority of the South American Journal for this kite flying. . 1 . . -i 1 1 ... .1 Ed Bailey a farmer living on Coiieebogue, in the northwest por tion of the county, while en route to Forest on last Thursday, was met at the , four-mile post, near Tallabogue, by two white men about 1 2 o'clock a. in. One of the men who seemed superior to the other in intellect as well as in size, advanced toward Mr. Uailey with a pistol in his hand and asked him if he had a pistol he wanted to trade. Mr. Uailey informed him that he did not, and pulling a bot tle from his pocket the stranger asked him to take a drink, which Mr. Bailey also refused, stating that he never drank anything stronger than "Adam's Ale." The stranger at last asked Bailey if he had any money, to which he replied in the negative. "But," said the stranger, slapping his hand against Bailey's pocket, "you have got money." The fellow then covered Bailev with his pistol while his; partner sand-bagged him and re-' lieved him of his little ''wad'' $55. ( He lay unconscious lor several minutes, and when he recovered saw no trace of the highwaymen. j His horse was grazing near' by and a large herd of cattle surrounded ) him. - Jasper review. j NOTICE Toil PUBLICATION. band OiRn ak Jackson, MUs., December A, 18.r.". j Notice is hereby given toat the fob loAing-named settler has tiled notice of bia intention to make final proof ia support of bia claim, and that said proof will be made before liie Circuit Clerk of Attala county, at Kosciusko, Miss., ou .Ian. -0, lHPtii viz: Andrew I..
