in the Sum of RUTLANDVt July field on Henry Naughtons farm the stump of an im mense hnckberry tree has stood for years It has long beon hollow and decayed but the tree had been an old landmark and the stump was so large it was looked upon an interesting relic and was not turbed A few rods from the stump Ifarmer McNaughtou had a barn which was used for storing hay iu A couple of big stacks of recently cut hay stood be tween the sturnp and the barn Makes It Warm for the Serpent The other day the farmer was paining near the old hackberry stump when he saw a blacksnake run into a hole in the stump Like everybody else McNaugh ton hates snakes so he proceeded to give tbe serpent a housewarming The stump was soon firod and out came his snake ship only to be cruelly slaughtered by the elated farmer But he found that the stump wasnt tbe abiding place of that alone for from every hole and fissure in the old ruin nnd from among the decayed roots snakes came wriggling and writhing out until the grouu d was lit erally alive with them as they scattered in all directions to escape Also for His Hay Crop They were too many for the farmer so he hurried off for help When he got back with his son and a hired man his two naystacks and his barn were ablaze Fire from the stump had followed trains of loose hay that lay on the ground and reached the stacks and barn The hay stacks and barn full of hay Were soon nothing but piles of ashes The loss is about 1000 and not another snake was killed as far as the returns are in GOEDONS THREAT Georgias Governor Advocates a Business Boycott Trying to

Northern ToBe Boycotted if tbe Bill Passes and Bints of Disas ter to Northern Capital Invested South A Decidedly Angry Opposition to Measure JJirwYoRK July The Heraiid pub lishes a dispatch from QoTernor Gordon of Georgia in which the governor states that he is in entire accord with this spirit tone and practical suggestions of The At lanta Constitution as to use a boy cott as a means of seUTpieservatiion and commercial independence Jif the useless and infamous force bill becomes a law Moreover the governor says that spirit will possess and control approximately ev ery white man woman and child in the southern states Hopeful of tho Senate The governor says that ever the bill passed the houne he has hopnd that some of the Republican senators would be found patriotic enough broad and brave enough to prefer the wellbeing of the country to party ascendancy But if this hope is not realized and the forcis bill be comes a he will use whatevar influ ence he may possess to arouse the south ern people to the necessity of looking only to their exhaustless resources Will Resist by Lawful Means We will he says welcome to our section all our countrymen of tha north who may wish to live among us and we will still protect all their investments and tights of property by impartial laws and honest courts but we shall counsel a re turn to the old system of the election of representatives by a general ticket if needs be or a resort to any lawful peaceful means in order to protect tho right of choosing representatives and to resist the wrong of having them chosen for us by federal supervisors No Justification Nor Excuse The governor concludes his dispatch as follows We will still endeavor to keep peace and promote good will between the races and sincerely hope that the south ern negroes will not destroy their own prosperity by consorting with those whose rnad policy threatens the wellbe ing ot both races We shall still hope that after these years of apparent recon ciliation of restored confidence we shall not see the whole current of national sen timent turned backward and downward by sectional legislation which has no pos sible justification nor rational excuse PAT CALHOUNS OPINIONS He Conies Out Strong in Favor of tho Boycott Idea ATLANTA Ga July 28 Pat Calhoun of the Richmond Terminal system which has control of tbe East Tennessee and Georgia systems of road himself In favor of n boycott of the north if the south should be forced under negro rule by tbe force bill He says No man deprecates sectional issues more than do but if the Republican party passes the force bill nil we can do i to rally our strength and to rely upon ourselves In this we have the support of conservative men north Vist sums of northern money have been invested in the south and any strike at thj south affects this in vestment IIrect Trade witH Europe I have always been an advocate of di rect trade with Europe I believe that it will eventually come to the southern peo ple if they stand together and rally to the support of her great industrial enterprises and the time is not distant when in our southern ports will ride the ships of all nations Whatever I con do to promote direct trade with Europe will bei cheerful ly done and influence I may have with the railroads of the siouth will be used to accomplish this result A Republican View of the Matter NEW YORK July The Tribuneii Washington special says Probably thu most foolish thing which the opponent of the elections bill have done this far iii to threaten men from the north who have Invested money in business enterprises iu the southern states and to couple with this as The Atlanta Constitution ban done a threat to boycott northern mer chants and business men generally There is not the least danger that either threat will be executed or that any southern buainess man will have the least sympa thy with it The plain truth is that south ern men who are earning an honest living and making money by application to busi ness have outgrown the provincialism and intolerance of southern Democratic poli ticians and have begun seriously to doubt their wisdom Poor Sliow for the

Question Asketl by the New York Herald NEW YORK July Heralds Washington special says Are English influences at work in the senate Is the power of English money so great in this country that it can defeat legitimate ap propriations for the government work in order that the syndicates composed of English capitalists may reap the benefit These reflections are suggested by the failure of the conferees on the fortifica tions bill to reach a satisfactory conclu sion regarding the disputed items in that measure The reason of the Heralds imputation of rascality on the select of the American people is the difference of opinion as to an appropriation for Watervleit arsenal which it may bo noted is located in New York state The 15ase tiiili Experts CHICAGO July base ball play ing yesterday
