A strange Incident.
--A correspondent of the Athens Banner
says: ‘"A Mrs. Brown
, of Randolph county
, went with her sister to Americas, last winter, to meet a brother whom they were expecting home from the army.
After the cars came down, and while they were looking for their brother among the crowd, Mrs. Brown
observed a coffin in the baggage car, and remarked, on pointing it out to her sister, 'If that were my brother, I believe it would kill me.' Her sister then asked the name of the deceased, of a soldier who had charge of the coffin, and, to her horror, found that it was really her brother.
In an instant Mrs. Brown
dropped down on the platform and died, and her poor sister had to carry home two corpses instead of one.’
