Mr. McNeal, the Marietta marble man, has advised Messrs. W. and George Stiles that he desired to place a nice monument over the grave of “Archie,” the famous trotter whose death was noted in our last issue.  Mr. McNeal is a true lover of horseflesh and thought much of “Archie” and begged the privilege of showing his estimation by placing a suitable stone over his grave.

A Young Negro is Badly Injured By Freight Train.

Will French, a young negro boy, was run over and his right arm and shoulder crushed by a south bound freight train Monday morning.  French had started to N. C. Anderson’s peach orchard three miles below town to work, when he was overtaken by the train that was going slow.  He attempted to swing it and was thrown under the wheels.  Besides the shoulder and arm there is a bad wound on the head.  He will likely die, so physician Dr. Bowdoin thinks.
