The most prominent residents of

General E. G. Walthall, General G.

Grenada is described as a pretty lit
tie town with several hundred more
than two thousand inhabitants.
lt'ris seventy-five miles below Hol
ly Springs and 300 miles above New
Orleans. The people are generally
in moderate circumstances and half
the populatidn is black. It derives
its, chief support from cotton, the
surrounding land, , being the richest
in the State. The Jackson route
runs directly through Grenada, and
it is the terminus of the Mississippi
and Tennessee Rail way.
Its streets and the sewer spoken
of were not' properly attended' to
during the summer, and the attempt
to repair' the sewer, brought out the
fever. The physicians and nurses
are hard at work; but every case has
thus far nroved fatal. One hundred!
and forty-eight f persons j how have
the fever. Deaths almost always oc
cur at night and new cases come on
at the same time. Twelve deaths
occurred Wednesday night and nine
Thursday night. - 1

Cliarlotte Observer : There comes
to us another denial of the alleged
recent killing of Ahdy Scoggins, of
Rutherford, by his father-in-law, a
Baptist preacher. It appears that a
couple of weeks ago. the two had a
difficulty and that the father-in-law
struck Scoggins with a stick, fbr
which he was very penitent and on
account of which he has announced
his purpose; to resign the ministry.
It is probable that the story of the
homicide grew out of this occurrence. 1
Concord Sun : A country friend
walked into our office Saturday and
putting a covered jbasket on our ta

something more wonderful than the
Siamese twins. An investigation
showed the basket to contain; three
fully developed kittens joined to
gether in a manner exactly similar
to that of the famous twins. They
excited the wonder ;of all who vis

of such, We inform! them that at this
