JEFI’EKSISN DAVIS WAS ARREHTEU IN
It is not generally known that ex-
Presidem -Jefferson Davis wos once
arrested 'And held prisoner in Atlanta,
charged with being a pick pocket.
In 1857 or 1850 Mr. Davis, who was
then Secretary of War, was travelling
from KichmoDd to Mississippi. Oo the
same train wus Mr. Sam Noble, the
founder of the big iron works in Romo
Mr. Noble bad but recently oomo over
from England and was on a prospecting
tour. He had with him u small hand
satchel containing 81,000 in gold. When
Atlanta was reached the dismay of Mr,
Noble may be imagined when he found
his satchel gone. He gave the alarm
and City Marshal K. T. Hunnicutt and
his deputy, Ben Williford, responded at
once. They learned .that a quiet, un
assuming man had occupied the seat with
Noble, and after a short aearch they
found him, put him under arrest and
carried him to Washington Hall, a hotel,
Tho stranger took his arrest very quiet
ly aod said: “Is not Allison Nelson the
mayor of your town ? irell, I think if
you will bring him here I can be identi
The arrest of a person charged with
picking pockets was unusual in Atlanta,
and the prisoner was surrounded by a
gaping, staring crowd.
Tbe mayor came, and as be crossed the
threshold he glanced around the room
until his eyes rested on the prisoner.
With a shout of joy, his aims out
stretched, be sprang forward.
‘•Jeff Davis, God bless your soul!
Where did you come from ? Gentlemen,
I fought under this man in the Mexican
war. He is the Secretary of War.’’
“Introductions and explanations fol
lowed. The officers began another inves
tigation, and finally recovered the money
from the negro train porter.
Messrs. Hunoicutt and Williford are
still alive; Mr. Noble and Mayor Nelson
are dead, but there arc many old men
in Atlanta today who were present in

There's a vast difference in northern
and southern girls. Did you ever stop
to consider it? Southern girls are so
much more attractive to men than we are.
I don’t just understand why it is. But
every once in a while some Louisville or
Memphis or Virginia girl comes up here
and fairly walk^away with every eligible
man she meets. She is usually prettier,
but rather as stylish as her northern
sister, The former cares more for pretti
ness than style, though, aod wears more
dainty little curls and bows and bangles
and gewgaws than a northern girl would
don in a lifetime. It isn't exactly good
form, we think, but she doesn't know
that, and if she did, she wouldn't care,
for “boys like it,” and then her voice is
so soft, and her southern pronunciation
is simply delicious. ^
Her manners are charming hut rather
gushing, never coldly conventional nor
indifferent, as ours often are. And she
does make such a fuss uver the men. She
exerts herself so to please them and lays
herself out tohe charming to every man
that comes along, he be old or young, rich
or poor, married or unmarried. And
they all swear by the aouthern girl. From
grandpapa down to the little freshman
she captures'all the masculine hearts.
Her southern blood gives her a sponta
neous enjoyment of things, quick appre
ciation, and ready laughter that refreshes
a man because it's just what he loves to
find in a woman.—Chicago News.

KICKED INTO A FORTUNE.
A MULE 8 HEELS LANDED ITS DRIVER
ON A RICH QOLD-LEDaE.
Any man without Tom Power’s luck
would have been kicked into kingdom
come instead of the richest diggings in
tho Territories. He was freighting from
Lake Valley to the aiinning camp in tbe
Black Rang;, and was lucky if he could
keep at work. He was about as clumsy
as they make men, and never made u
a trip without being kicked, bitten, or
trodden on by his team, says the San
One mule in the string. Old Sam, was
a regular devil; the brute knew that Tom
was afraid of him and never missed a
chance to bite or kick at him. One d:iy
in the latter part of September 18^7,
Tom started from Lake Valley with a
heavy load, bound to John Burke's camp.
The distance was eighty miles, and part
of the way the road was hardly
more than a trail along the side of ti e
mountain. Half a dozen good teamsit.rB
had refused the contract, but Tom tofk
it because the price offered was mur«
than what he could obtain on any oib-''
route. Bets were freely made that ihu
outfit would go over the grade, hut Toni
succeeded in getting over sixit
miles of the road without a single
hitch. Then be was at the Hogback, a
narrow ridge along which the road ran,
and on each side was a deep canyon. At
no place is the road more than a couple
of feet wider than a wagon and the grade
is very heavy. Half way across some
thing started Old Sam and he began to
Tom whipped and swore, but Sam
only made his heels fly the faster, and at
last managed to get outside of the traces,
aod then, as if satisfied with the fun he
had had, the brute lay right down in the
middle of the road and defied Tom's
every effort to get him up.
A couple of Mexicans happened along,
and, at Tom’s invitation, they took a
hand. One of them gathered a lot of
dry grass and piled it close to the mule’s
hindquarters and set it on fire. It took
Sam about two seconds to change his
position and land his heels on Tom’s
stomach with a force which sent him
over the edge of the road aod down the
Lank. He dropped twenty-five or thirty
feet down the side of the mountain.
Where did he land? Why, oo the
edge of tbe Noonday, of course. He
bad sense enough to keep his discovery
a secret, and wrote to his brother, in
Denver, to gather up all the cash be
could aod get down to New Mexico as
soon as possible. The first thing we

at work developing the mine. AH rock

It paid handsomely from the start, and
the boys are now getting out about
$10,000 a month clear of expenses. The
first thing Tom did was to purchase old
Sam, and the mule is now living a life of
ease with a big pasture to graze in and a
good stable to sleep in at eight.
