OnDS AND KNDS, She Chloroforms Quest and Steals hla Roll Two Hundred Dollars Reward Not Vet Found Her Victim I'nknown, Mattie Jackson, a mulatto woman of ill fame, stole $1,356 from a visitor to her house early Sunday morning and suc cessfully made her escape from the city. A few weeks ugo a young mail arrived in the city. He was traveling through the South with a view to investing, and the prospects of Aslieville ns a place for a financial outlay attracted him here. For some time he hobnobbed with local capitalists, and a deal was finally made for $1,400, which was to have been closed yesterday. On the late Sat urday afternoon truin he received by ex press $1,303. The banks were closed and he intended to carry the money about with him. After supper he visited several saloons and drank freely, and late that night he visited the house of the Jackson woman. There he displnvcd his money and the woman finally cbluro formed him, took the roll and left him sleeping. This was alter 1 o'clock, ns he distinctly remembers having looked at hit watch at that time, At nine o'clock on Sunday morning he came to his senses and discovered his loss. Detective W. H.

The city was also thor oughly searched but with the same result. AN EXPLANATION. The College Grounds are Strictly Private. We publish the following in justice to the president of the Aslieville Female College, and nlso In justice to ourselves. In an article relating to The Oaks hotel we certainly referred to the propinquity of the college grounds as a great advant age to thut establishment. But it was an advantage addressed to the eye and the lungs rather than to the feet ; for we did not assume that guests of tile hotel would have unlicensed lilierty to ramble through the college grounds. We cer tainly did not understand that much from the proprietors ol the hotel, though we certainly did understand that the liberty of the short walk through the grounds to the city was accorded, an equivalent privilege being supposed to have been granted. Nevertheless, we hope the college and the hotel will grow to te very good neighbors. Here is lr. Barker's note : Editor Citizen: We have endeavored bv notices and other means to impress the public that the grounds of the Aslie ville Female College are strictly private! grounds, intended lor the exclusive use of I our pupils, boarding and local. In your j vcrv excellen article of Sunday morning j on The Oaks hotel, which article we heartily endorse in the main, you certainly leave the impression that our grounds! are oiieu for public promenading, and for !
