A Dangerous Accident. We learn from
Mr. Wm. R. Babb that on Tuesday last, Miss Sallie Babb daughter
of Ranse (Ransom) Babb, who lives in Baldwin County, near Morris
Mill, substained very serious acidental (s) injuries. She is about eighteen
years old, and was engaged burning trash in a field when the skirt of her
dress caught fire. Finding she could not extinquish it, she, like most
women in like circumstances, ran off. Her sister, Julia, who was
a year or two younger, ran after her, and having caught up with her, threw
her into a branch and put out the fire, after her clothing had burned up
to her waist. Though her injuries are of a fearful character, it is hoped
she may recover. Dr. Crowley is her attending physician.

Something like a sensation came up
when Alderman Wing of the charity committee handed in a bill from a city
undertaker for $15 for a coffin which had been furnished on the order of
the mayor. Alderman Wing knew nothing, he said, about it and desired infomation.
Mayor Price then said: "In January there were three sisters by the name
of Babb who worked out in the Bibb Mills on Oglethorpe street. All
of them died in quick succession, and as it was the dying request of the
mother that all should be buried in Milledgeville, a subscription was raised
in the factory and two of the bodies were sent to their former home.
When the last one died the neighbors came to me for assistance and after
hearing the case I ordered a coffin at $15 and the body was sent to Milledgeville."
"But it is buried out here in Rose
Hill as a pauper," put in Chairman Wing.
The announcement of this fact
caused considerable surprise. On motion of Alderman Smith the bill was
ordered to be paid.

NOT A PAUPER'S GRAVE
Is that Filled by Miss Anna
Babb, Whose Death Caused Some Talk.
City sexton made an investigation
yesterday into the report of the cemetery committee, which caused a few
words in city council Tuesday night. The report stated that Miss Anna
Babb had died, and Mayor Price ordering a coffin the body was buried
as a pauper in Rose Hill, instead of being shipped to Milledgeville. The
report occassioned no few remarks yesterday, when the Telegraph was read,
and finally resulted in the city sexton making an investigation. He says,
"Mayor Price ordered the coffin and I furnished it and delivered the remains
in the casket at the Central depot on Januaary 7th in time for the evening
train. Two tickets were purchased, one for the corpse and one for the lady
who intended to accompany the remains to Milledgeville. The evening train
departed and with it the lady, but by some blunder the corpse was left
behind, and was not taken until the 8th, when a gentleman, who was furnished
a pass, went over with it and attended the funeral. By an accident the
name was placed on my register as a pauper, and hence the report. The other
sisters were buried here in Macon, but the body of Miss Anna Babb rests
