Ill On Monday last, the Mb lust., T. S. Iliude, of this city, .started out in com pany Willi his favorite double-barreled gnu, for a lew hours' pleasure at his fa vorite pastime, hunting. After a con siderable time, spent In rambling up and down the river and aioiiud the lakes, his labors wcro rewarded wqjj the possession of a large fat goose. The ambition of our worthy Nimiod seem ing now fully satisfied, ho lurn"d him self iiroliml about nnd slurted for his home. Arriving nt his store in this city, lie alighted from his buggy to lest himself, mid receive the congratulations of his many fiicuds up on his siici'U'.s as u shooter. Loud and jitol'ii-e were the feigned euloglstu oral effusions which seemed to spontaneous ly emanate Irom the bosom of the crowd, whllo Cou-tnble Ill-own called i.ur hero to one side "to see him pri vately for a minute." When Hindu le turned hu ton tut that the crowd had dis persed ; and u vacancy stared him in thu face, from the place which his goose iiad occupied. Hu betiu to "smell a mouse" and at once grew fu rious. Ho raved und swore; charged about tliieatunlugly und foamed but all to no purpose; the goose could not bo found. Alter .earchiug about dili gently for a couple or three days, ,sns plcioniug many, mul cnqiilrlngof every one ho met, with a hope, of finding some clue to either the whereabouts of thu goose, or t o perpetrator of tho jolxo sometimes threatening persons suspleioned, in order lo gain track of thu lost treasure; and at other times trying confidentially to get some one to dlvu .go thu coveted information. Hut his plans all failed and finally ho re luctantly and sorrowfully gave up tho i-eureh. Nothing moro was thought of the matter unlit Thureduy about ten o'clock, a. in., when information was received i;y T. S. Hindu and wife, and 1). P. Dobyns and wile, of Tin: Countv Pa i'i:it, Unit it was desirable that the, four, should present themselves at the residence of Sheriff Frainu promptly at l'J-ilO o'clock, to partake of a dinner prepared from thu llcsli of a wild goose. Of course they nil went, and lo, nnd be hold, thu mystery was solved Frame lad played the trick. Wo deem It uu- neee-sary to further paiticulari.e; sullleo it to say thnt Mrs. Finnic that queen of tho kitchen, had excelled her self In the preparation of this goose, and ail partook heartily theieof, in con nection with thu many other good things prepared; that a few hours of real pleasure were passed, and that then, nil returned to their homes ex pecting long to remember the joke, nnd fouling a hopu that 1'. S. Hindu's goose bun's may become much more fre- pieul. Serious Accident. Last Thursday, nt his homo in this oouiity, litilu Hurry, a l-'-year old sou of John W. Halghler, came near meet ing his death by a fall from a horse; Ho went to a pasture near by tho house to got ono of bis father's horses. Hav ing caught tho horse and bridled htm ho climbed upon his buck and started In a gallop lowaid the house. After hav ing gone but a slioit distance the hor.-u stumbled over a log, mid fnlling down, throw tho boy about twenty feet, against a stump. The boy's back struck the stump and ho seemed to have wound almost around it. His head Is badly bruised, ono leg is broken m two places, and it is thought that his back Is broken.
