Ah account of Stephnoy Bailey' in
human butchery nod burning of bis wife,
and of Bailey's subsequent death ln the
Berkeley, 8. C, county jiil from, the ef
fect of wound inflicted by ' himself in
an attempt to commit suicide, ha . been
published. Before be died, Bailey made
a confession to the editor of tho Berkeley
Gatettt, making bimwlf out to be thrieo
a murderer, and a 'veritable Bluebeard.
The confession wasmado inthe presenco
of Jailer Harris. At that time tho mar
deret was perfectly rational, but po.bly
felt the death-chill and concludca to tin
tosom himself before it wa forever too
late. The following is Bailey' . confes
sions "My name is Stephncy JBailey. I
am about ?0 year old. I have lcen
warried three limes. I killed my ' first
wife with club, n-.r name was Cat h
eririe, 1 buried her in tho garden, aud
iter a while it wa found our, and the
people dug her op and buried her in the
graveyard. She had ix children for me.
My second wife's name wa Mry. I
killed her with a brick by bitting lur in
the head; I will not tell what I did wi;h
her body. ' She had one child for me, a
boy. Hi namei 8abey. I don't know
where he is. My third wife' namo was
Bailie. My wife and I had not been
on good term for three or four weeks.
That day I laid in wait for her in a fr.ot
path, and as the came along I bit her in
the head with an ax and killed her, and
dragged her body in the bushes until
that night Then I sent my boy to the
yard for a wheelbarrow, and wheu be
came I sent him back to the houe. Tbea
I put tbe body in the wheelbarrow and
carried it about a mile, and put it in tbe
furnace. At sunrise I started tbe fiie.
and about 8 or 9 o'clock it was found out.
Bailie had seven children forme." It ap
pear that these previous butcheries of
Bailey's were known to those who were
in authority at tbe time, but th:t time
til during the darkest days of South
Carolina's history, during the days soon
after the War,' and nothing was ever
done with . the recently cnfranchiiu i
elector. In making this confession, Bul
ky evinced no repentance for hi inhu
man murders, and, so hard had be be
come in crime, that he had forgotten the
details and date of hi former butcher
ies. He wa buried on the town com'
mons, near the graves of Scott, the exe
cuted murderer, and Giarrctti, tbe murderer-suicide.
The boiler in the Kirby house, Mil
waukee, Wis., which is quite close to tbe
office of the Sentinel, exploded, knocking
the rear of the hotel building entirety
out. Several girls working iu the
ml office were slightly injured. As fon
as the steam had cleared away, a great
ragged rebt was seen in the walls of the
Kirby house, abutting on the alley, wbcre
the screams of women mingled with the
sound, of breaking glass and falling
bricks. Mis Langly, employed in the
composing room of the 4WW, told a
very good story of the affair: -1 was

made my way down (tain a quickly at
possible. The force waa so great that

Tbe speaker ' wa Treasurer Heming
way, of Mississippi, and he was speaking
of ex-Governor Alcoru'e ' plantation in
Colu'tma county. ' ' - ;
" Four thousand acres in cultivation is
larger than DO per cent of the farms in
Georgia, including every bit of land in
the trapt It Is a question whether there
are 10 plantations in Georgia that con
tain 4,000 acres, And yet a Mississippi
planter cultivates that number. Gov.
Alcorn's place it admitted to bi perhaps
the finest in tbo southwest. A man of
large wealth, be farms in tbe most liberal
manner. Gov. Lowry said the other day,
speaking of him and his plantat:on, there
is nothing like it anywhere in the coun
try. It Is more like an English baronial
seat than the river homo of a southern
planter. It is a lordly place, with every
thing on tbe most magnificent scale.
The house is a perfect palace, built for
comfort and entertainment'and furnished
with everything that a refined and cul
tivated taste could suggest or demand.
The plantation is on the same magnifi
cent scale, and if it could be arranged it
would be a treat to any one to spend a
day npon that domain.
the gin-bouse on tbe Alcorn place is
about a costly as a mansibn on Peach
tree street in Atlanta, and it is estimated
that it could not be replaced for less than
$30,000. It Is necessarily obliged to le
large, for within a very few months 8,000
b .les of cottoa have to be marketed at
that house. These large places are only
possible with great wealth, and this char
acterizes Gov. A'.corn and others who run
them, but it shows what can be done on
the river bottom, or in the "Delta coun
try," as the MisSissippinns are pleased to
call it. Stock raising and grass culture
are carried on to a very large extent. The
matter is in its infancy, but already there
are stock farms where there are 00
dam for mules. These marcs are
worked to make the corn crop and . in
harvesting the hay for the entire place.
This work is not injurious and adds con
siderable to the profit of stock raising by
making the dam earn her salt iu many
ways. For the purpose of raising mu'es,
the half Perchcron mare if said to be the
bcit. The finest pair ot mules seen
here were bred from tbi stock. They
were strong and powerful, and had but
little of the heavy clumsiness character
istic of the Percheron stock.
With hay, the Bermuda seems to be tfab
favorite. It is regularly cultivated, and
the yield is proline. During the past
few months nay has been very scarce,
and the price consequently very high,
and the stockmen have seen the wisdom
of raising large quantities of it. In a
year or mora there will not be a bale of
western hay imported in Mississippi.
Tbe stock farm are not devoted exclu
sively to horse and mules, though these
are produced more numerously than any
other variety, but on nearly all iho large
place you see fine cattle. The Jersey is
the most common, though the Durham
and the Holstein are frequently met with.
1 he advantage the Jersey his over the
other breeds In the South wo tbe readi
ness vith which it sdapted itse lf to its
new surroundings. With the Holsteina,
they were good breeds to have on rich
bottom lands wbcre food grew luxuri
antly, but for upland places, where scow
has to knock about right smart for her
living, the Holsteiu was not a success. It
is a lazy animal; it does not know how
to provide for itself, aod unless every
thing i in tbe greatest abundance about
it, it will not thrive without feediug
and constant watching. It is superior to
the Jersey in that it is an excellent bicf
cattle, and the cow at the same time are
by, no means poor milker. Tbe most
popular eattie are tbe Devon, for
. One of the beat specimen of winter
provender in Mississippi ia mixed clover,
which grows a well at it doc in the
best section of Kentucky. The planter
put it in freely, and they are rewarded
with a splendid a crop a one could de
sire. In the spring and summer no let
ter grazing cair be found than that af
forded by the prairie bind, snd cattle
Mn be kept at a nominal ro t in lirtre
number. It Is JwmiWe to keep them
up in Winter by feeding cured prairie
gras to them, but this 1 seldom done
unless provender is very scarce. The
oilier and finer qualiti. of grots grow
too luxuriantly to. make .it crop ever a
failnre, and be I a very poor and Indif
ferent farmer who fail to bale more thin
enough for winter consumption.
Mississippi is not solely a cotton pro
ducing tlato. It i truo that this season
the cotton crop there has !) better tfin
t has been in any Southern state. Tke
early drought did not affett it, as it did
in uenrgia, Alabama and Tcxn con-equally
ihe yield was better, and. quality
lietter, and,iu every way the crop more
ot a si 1 cress. But the corn crop of the
state is a large one, and will hereafter
grow larger and largt-r. The corn land
of Mississippi yield surprisingly. At

Hightower said: "I was walking down

three or four negroes, ami one of them
asked me if I was wet or dry. I did not
answer, and attempted to pa s on, Th
crowd then got in front of me and in
sisted that I tell them if I was wet 01
dry. I replied that I ' both, but tbii
did not satisfy them and I had to tell
them the truth, that I was dry. I then
moved rapidly away, fearing trouble,
when a rock struck me on the left side
of my head, just behind the car. I did
not know the negroes, and don't know at

verdict: "We, a coroner's jury, this daj

Most, tbe noted anarchist, was resumed,
his counsel, Mr. Howe, arose and dis
claimed, on tbe part 01 bit tiu.ni, auy
connection with or knowledge of tht

He expressed the belief that it waa sent -by
tome enemy of Most' to prejudice hi '
case. Aloit was then cnikd to tne wit
ness stand to testify in bis own defense.
At the conclusion of Most' testimony
both tides announced that they bail no
more evidence to offer. Judge Cowing
said he would limit each side to out hour
summing up. Jm.gc Cowing, in bis
charge, told the jury that Most wa not

"Our love of free speech and freedom of
the press" he continued, "has made us

jealous of our liberty. Free siicccli doe
