According to tho accounts generally ros

enticing slaves away from, and refusing to
return them to their homes and musters, '
in proving very disastrous nnd destructive!
to uitf negro, tuoioiiowmg is ironi a

the little grove in rows io close that o:io
can hardly step btwoen them. Here,
about two feel under ground, are over a
thousand dead negroes, and day after day
others who have starved to death aro be
ing ndded to tho nameless list. And
there nrea dozen negro graveyards in He
lena, each rapidly bomg tilled with ne
groes who Hero once happy and content

themselves and to the world.
Yesterday, in company with Cupt. Sher
man of tho '2d Wisconsin cavalry, we rodo
by tho lirst named negro "plant."
Four darkies had just deposited on tlio
promid a stout negro, dead as a door nail.
Ilia woolly head and dirty feet protruded
from under the worn out horso blanket
which served as a winding sheet. Ono of
the living km slowly digging a trench, the
others stood watching.

him )"'
"lle'se dun gono dead massa 1" and
they chuckled to think we could not
guess why he was there.
"What's the mat tor o! him?"
"Too much hard times, nnibsal Do ni

"Nit'qors dio pretty ea-y hero don't
"Yes massa, dey get shut of themselves

And so thought wo as they wore left
behind lo conduct their funeral to a ter
mination. In half an hour some thous
and dollar chap will be left to rot and add
Holiness to the soil which will hertalter
grow larger pouches than ever before.
In the house of Ir. Grunt, where I board,
is an intelligent African girl about 24
years old, owned ly tho Dr. The other
morning while she was sweeping up tho

"Well. Millie you area very sensible

"Deed I will. We'vo all dun gon got

"What do they Heal, Millie T"
"Golly, dey steal nil day ee,
