Randolph, Jan. 11 – Some three months ago Mr. B.B. Head of Bibb county was murdered by one Jim Tate, and Tate was arrested a few days ago in Jackson Parish, Louisiana, but its sheriff,  R. H. Jones, the sheriff, arrived in Randolph at 10 o’clock last night on this way to Centeville jail, and between the train hotel Mr. Jones was shot from ambush by unknown parties, evidently for the purpose of releasing Tate, the murderer of Mr. Head, and when Mr. Jones was shot down the prisoner escaped and is at large today.

A Dose Of “Blue Pills” Administered From The Muzzle Of A Good Shot Gun
September 30, 1875
Transcribed From Birmingham Iron Age

Dr. Metzger, who plead guilty to the charge of bigamy at the late term of the Circuit Court of Bibb County, was sentenced to the Penitentiary for four years. He is a Canadian by birth, of mixed blood, and married negro wife in Canada by whom he had seven children.  He deserted her and married a second wife, who is the daughter of a citizen of Bibb county, who was in Franklin, Ind.  A dose of “blue pills” administered from the muzzle of a good shot gun would have suited his case better.
