as in the same proportion that you

A Gool Inventment.
A colored resident of this city by
the name of Win. Johnson made a
lucky investment in a pair of shad
last Saturday.' He paid 25 cents for
a pair of buck which he took home
to his wife, ho set to work at once
to clean them. In doiug so she came
acros a silver five cent piece in the
entrails and a little further .search
revealed a silver half dollar. The
latter was almost black. How the
money got there nobody knows,
The Hie Fresh in Black Kiver.
i lie iresiiet in lilac k luver is one
of the largest if not the very larg
est ever kno wn. A resident of the
Caintuck section who ishere to-day
savs that the banks of the river are
all overflowed and that the water is
out in the woods. A number of in
stances are reported where it is up
to the door steps of dwelling houses
and in one instance a colored uian
had to abandon his house and ilea
to higher ground. At fast accounts
however, the water was - subsiding.
