When arrested Kelly barged that the four hobos had held him up and robbed blm of »7 fiO, and upon the strength of this statement the charge of highway robbary was preferred against them. When questioned concerning Che robbery Kelly stated that the money represented what was Ifcft of his week's wages after he had paid his board and purchased a pair of pants and a pair of boots This put the officers to thinking and they could not figure out how, after Kelly had^earned but $7.50 he could pay out as he did and still have more than the original sum. The matter rested so until this morning, when Kelly admitted that he had accused the hobos wrongfully, and the charge of intoxication was substituted in order to hold the men long enough to see if they are wanted elsewhere.

Farmers south of the Wabash river have suffered many losses the pas' few months from chicken thieves. Roosts have been robbed in about every eeighborhocd, and although a watch has been kept upon the chicken-coop?, the night mauraud- ers had not been discovered until the capture at Deer Creek last Saturdav morning, and then a light snowfall enabled the owners of the chickens to track the thieves. It is likely that the men captured have been doing much of the chicken stealing that has been going on for some time. They are the meanest kind of thieves and should be well punished for their evil deeds. Adrertised Letter List.

Tarn, wife of John H. Tarn died yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the family residence on Loebelia street, aged 47 fears. The 'uneral will be held Wednesday at 10 a. m. from the residence, conducted by .rtev. Huckleberry. Interment will be made in Ht. Hope cemetery. Deceased wai a very estimable woman, and a husband and ihree grown children are left to Bourn her lou. to several of his friends who are on the police force. The old farmer was approached and asked about his terrible experience with White Caps. "Oh, it wasn't much," he said, with a smile, "only I was once bnried." The old man then proceeded to give his experience with the White Caps. He said: ' 'I was living in Gwinnett county at the time, and it was 10 or 12 years ago. I have always tried, to live the life of an honest citizen in ray county, but there be those who ain't disposed that way, and they ain't too particular about bow' they treat other people. I was suspected of giving some information to revenue ofScers, which wasn't true, and I was told several times if I didn't look out the White Caps would take care of me. I went along minding iny own business until one day I was driving along the public road near the old Burns mill in Gwinnett, and I was walking by the side of my wagon to give the team a rest as they were going up a bill. "Suddenly seven or eight men jumped out of a thicket by the side of the road and put the muzzles of their guns in my face. I stopped. Of course you know I did that. Then one of them spoke up and said, 'You just might as well say your prayers, for we are sure going to put you where you can't tell any more news to the revenue officers.' I tried a little bluff, but it didn't work. Every one of those fellows wore white rags over their faces, and I couldn't tell who tbey were. They dragged me down into the woods and began to beat me with sticks and the butt ends of tSeir guns. I yelled like a wild Indian. All of a sadden tliey stopped and ran away. TJbey urnst have heard somebody coming. I fainted dead away, and when they came back they must have thought I was dead sure enough, for they took me to where there: was au old hole, aud into it tbey tossed me. Then they piled a lot of brush over me and threw sand over tiio brush. They were burying me, and the only reason they didn't make a better job of it was because they didn't have shovels to handle the dirt. If any shovels had been handy. I wouldn't have been here to tell the tain. "I laid there in that grave all night. The dead branches of the brush gave me breathing places. The nest morning I came to, and I had a hard time scrambling oat of that grave. I was awful sore and bruised up, but I managed to get home, and I told the people what had happened. You know, to this day some of the people in that neighborhood, think I rized from the dead." Farmer Watkins is a hale and strong man for bis age. He moved from Gwinnett to Dekalb county a few years ago and owns a good farm which is all paid for. He never tires of telling his erperi- ence with the White Caps and of his bn- rial and resurrection.—Atlanta Constitution. ^__ Vagaries of Learnlnp. A certain schoolteacher, whose sense of humor is developed to a remarkable degree, goes to the trouble occasionally of writing down for her own use some of the funniest answers which she finds in her examination papers.
