A Man With An Appetite. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 4 July 1914
A Man With An Appetite. Clarke County has alway= becll noted for having a man that could eat mona than any other one man in the United States. His name is Col. Clhancey, and he is now living five or six miles west of Athens. A quarter of mutton barbo cued would hardly furnish a lunch for him. Five pounds of cheese with three pounds of crackers wouldn't tempt hint to throw out his tobacco and take a snack. Twenty-six old fashioned gin gereakes wouldn't whet up his appetite. unt this is not a marker to the new eater lately disco*ered. A peak of Irish po tatoes, with two pounas of salt seems to get him in condition for good break fast. A half bushel of onions have been known to disappear when sittingin front of his store. Spring salad is a favorite pastime, and two bushels would only make him a lunch. Raw potatoes, ground peas, almonds, with an oc casional cocoanut thrown in, strawber ries, onions, cabbage, pIeRles, all serve to make the big eater of AMens realy for business and give h...

&MUSRNG WAR STORY. How a Pursued Federal Made a Balky Mule Quicken His Pace. Several veterans of the civil were tell ing of their experiences at Iondout, N. Y. One related the following amusing incident; "Our regiment was in camp at Har per's Ferry, and one day a comrade and I secured permission to pay a visit to a farmhouse some distance away, where we knew there was poultry. We rode horses and had some money in our pock ets to purchase what chickens and tur keys we desired, for on this occasion we had made up our minds to forego forag ing, but later on circumstances arose that qutckly made us forget our good resolu tion. A short distance from the farm house was a grass field into, which we turned our horses to graze at will. We then proceeded to the residence on foot, and met the farmer on an old-fashioned porch that ran the whole front of the qiuaint farmhouse. I told him we had come to barter for some chickens and turkeys. This proposition seemed to fire his Southern blo...

One relates to an "educated bull." Greytown has one long street. running througlh it and scarcely any. others, so that evserything that goes on in the town may be seen from one end of. it, up or down this street, to the other.i "The killing of cattle for beef,"'says General Macauley, "is done at a killing post in the center of the town. .'The beef cattle are broughtin frqm ranches one, two or three miles away. Sometimes vaqueros bring them in.: A rope is tied to the animal's horns and another to his tail. A vaquero will ride in front holding one rope, and naother vaquero behind hold ing the other.

"Fascinating Sand." Heaps of clean sea sani are 1slaced at pulbl:o cost, in,the parks and squares of iurlin, whero the 'German children sport under general supervision of the police.

Teasing an Alligator. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 4 July 1914
. Teasing asn Alligator. .Not long since an alligator was cap tured in a swmunp two miles from Way eross, Ga. Itmeasured seven feet two inches in length, and was placed in tihe fountain basin near the Savannah, Florida and Western railroad depot. This satirian, when first placed in the pool, was very mild and harmless. The railroad boys and others began poking funl and sticks at it, and it has become less gentle. There are several turtles and a small alligator in the fountain. Some of the men have been amusing themselves by throwing the turtles in its capacious mouth. It would crush down upon them, but it failed to make a mash, as it only squeezed down upon the hard shells which encase the terra pins like a coat of mail. It would press down for a while upon them and then, finding that they would not collapse, it would lazily openits month and turning its head to one side, would let the turtle drop out. The other day a young fellow caught the small alligator, which measured two feet ...
