It pictured the drama of every day as it

Tree Hid Bullets and Bottles
Another Era. -
Shot full of lead and used as a sub
i stitute for the old corner saloon, that
! may be the birlory of a tree that stood
at the corner of North boulevard aud
Garth avenue.
When P. S. Ouinn was cuttins down
the tree recently he found in it fifteen j
copper-jacketed bullets, embedded about
eight inches in the wood. The copper
Jacketed bullet was a forerunner of the
present steel-nosed bullet, and is no long,
er manufactured. "hen, or why, the
tree became a target, no one can say.
The tree was hollow with an opening
abojt thirty feet from the ground, that
was accessible. At the bottom of this
hollow there was a pile of old whiskey
bonis. .Mr. Quinn supposes that when
foot-rails vanished from Columbia, drink
ers would climb the tree and imbibe.
