Latest News Encouraging-Mr. Mc.
Kinley Being Much Better.
This community was shocked as
itp as not been shocked before, last
SFiday evening by the announce-
mant of the attempted assassination
of President McKinley. The news
Npead like wild fire, and in an in-
cridibly short time a large crowd-
congregated in the vicinity of the
Western Union office eager for any
news from the wounded Chief Mag-
As soon as the news reached the
Capitol, Gov. W. S. Jennings wired
the following to the wife of the
st iicken President:
i."Tallahassee, Fla., September 6th.
-4-To Mrs. William McKinley, Buf-
fao, N. Y.-Have just learned that
IPesident McKinley was shot today,
aid extend the deep sympathy on
half of the people of Florida, and
earnest prayer for his recovery.
SW. S. JENNINGs, Governor."
Several reports came from time to
time indicating that Mr. McKinley
could not live. They had a dread-
f y depressing effect upon our peo-
p:e, and only the assurances which
Solve since come that he will re-
c ver had a counteracting effect.
As we go to press every indication
is that the President will recover.
The crisis has passed, and though
it is yet possible for a bad turn to
take him off quick, yet the attend-
ing physicians consider every con-
dition favorable, and the Prerident
himself is planning for the future.
;Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 6.-Just a brief
twenty-four hours ago the newspapers
of the city blazoned forth in all the
pomp of headline type:
;"The proudest day in Buffalo's his-
To-night, in sombre type, sur-
ruunded by grewsome borders of
l Iack, the same newspapers are tell-
ig in funereal tones to a horrified
populace the deplorable details of
"the blackest day in the history of
Buffalo." President McKinley, the na-
tion's Chief Executive, and the city's
honored guest, lies prostrate, suffer-
ing the pangs inflicted by the bullets

bangs in the balance. -
Out on Delaware avenue, at the
bome of John G. Milburn, president of
, the Pan-American Exposition, with
tearful face and heart torn by con-
f licting hopes and fears, sits the faith-
ful wife, whose devotion is known to
all the nation.
It was a few minutes after 4 o'clock
this afternoon, while President Mc-
Kinley was holding a public recep-
tion in the great Temple bf Musle, on
the Pan-American grounds, .sat the
cowardly attack was made, with what

numbering thousands, surrounded by

by a motley throng of people, shower-

to clasp his hand, amid these sur-
roundings, and with the ever-recur-

sightseers ringing in his ears, the

Down at police hldquowters, sur-
. rounded by stern-faced Inqnaitors of

magnificent structure. Throngs of
people crowded in to gaze upon their

The President was in a cheerful
mood, and was enjoying to the full
the hearty evidences of good will
which everywhere met his gaze. Upon
his right stood John G. Milburn, of

President and introducing to him es-
pecially persons of note who ap-

It was shortly after 4 p. m. when
one of the throng which surrounded
the Presidential party, a medium-
sized man, of ordinary appearance,
plainly dressed in black, approached
as if to greet the President. Both
Secretary Cortelyou and President Mil-
burn noticed that the man's hand was
swathed in a bandage, or handker-
chief. He worked his way amid the
stream of people up to the edge of the
dais, until he was within two feet of

bowed and extended his hand in that
sprit of geniality the American p3-.
pie so well know, when suddenly the
sharp crack of a revolver rang out
clear and loud above the hum of
voices, the snuffling of myriad feet-
and vibrating waves of applause that
ever and anon swept here and there
over the assemblage.
There was an instant of almost
The President stood stock still; a
look of hesitancy, almost of bewilder-
ment on his face. Then he retreated
a step, while a pallor began to steal
over his features. The multitude,
only partially aware that something
serious had happened, paused in sur-
prise, while necks were craned and
all eyes turned as one toward the ros-
trum where a great tragedy was be-
Then came a commotion. With the
leap of a tiger, three men threw
themselves forward as wiW one im-
pulse, and sprang toward the would-
be asassin. Two of them were United
States secret service men, who were
on the lookout, and whose duty it was
to guard against just such a calamity
as had befallen he I'-esident and the
nation. The third was a by-stander
a negro, who had only an instant pre-
vously grasped in his dusky palm the
hand of the President. As one man,
the trio hurled themselves upon the
President's assailant. In a twinkling
he was borne to the ground, his
weapon was wrested from his grasp,
and strong arms pinioned him down.

APPOINTMENT OF CURATOR.
For the Estate of the Late William A.
Nowlin of This City.
The estate of Wiliam A. Nowlin,
which had prior thereto had no ad-
ministrator, had on rTiday, September
6, appointed W. D. Wilson as curator.
The heirs of the estate, it will be re-
membered, all reside-out of the State,
and in Brooklyn, New York. The tes-
tator died .recently, leaving the prop-
erty without a will. As there was no
administrator named, it was necessary
to apply to the Courts for one. The
Court has granted a temporary cus-
todian until an administrator shall be
duly appointed. Mr. Wilson received
his papers as custodian from Judge
Whitfleld on Saturday, and entered im-
mediately upon his duties.
The estate consists of. real estate,
shops and lands. The building as. pres-
ent occupied by the Soathern Express
office and the blarkmmih shop in the
rear. These buildings all need careful
inspection and possibly repairs in
some instances, the lands all need the
personal attention of some person
competent to keep tnem in a good con-
dition until a. regular qdminlntrator
shall be appointed to take entire
charge of the estate.
Mr. Wilson is a good man for the
poslton of custodian, and is to be
congratulated upon his appointment.
THE COTTON CROP.
Mr. R. .A. Shine, our well-known
cotton broker, Is beginning to gather.
in this year's cotton crop, lthougb,
from all appmrnmces, it come in slow.
Mr. Shine had taken in up to Tuesday
night 39 bales only; last year at the
same date he had registered 84 bales.
So far the cotton has been all short
staple cotton, and all from farmers in
Leon county, and near T.)1phhpeee.
The crop e-o far, have been first and
second class. The prospect for a full
-rop this year, though, -doubtles there
will be brighter later on, are as yet
not so e .*-,* *sing as had been hoped-
for. Last year, up to. April 6 there
were 2840 bales taken in, the highest
being 670 and the lowest.belng 240.
This year's bales will average,
however, between 400 and 600 pounds
per bale, are mostly first and second-
class, and the price is from 7 to 7%
cents per pound.'

COURT GOMMI ONE'S
Have Entered Upon Their Duties
TO CATCH UP WITH DOCKET
How They Will Prceed and Wher-s
They Will Work.
For several years there Las been
great complaint arising from litigants
dissatisfied because they could not get
matters through the Supreme Court.
That tribunal was nearly four years
behind with civil -cases, and as a con-
sequence rightful claimants were
many times deprived of a verdict until
they were dead or the issues involved
had become too old to be of interest.
The most trivial cases were in other
instances carried up to prevent final
adjudication until the appellants ac-
complished his or her purposes or de-
prived the other side of their rights
in the premises for all time.
Under these circumstances the law-
making power of the State provided
for the appointment of three com-
missioners to assist the justices in
disposing of the accumulated docket.
The law became effective August 1st,
and the appointments were then made,
accepted and announced in the news-
The appointees, however, did not re-
ceive their commissions and enter
upon their duties until the 9th inst,.
Monday. The following appears on
the docket of the Court:
"By virtue of the authority vested
in this Court by the provisions of
Chapter 4906, Laws of Florida, approv-
ed May 8th, 1901, the Court has select-
ed, and does hereby select and call. to
its assistance the three following-
named residents and citizens of Flor-
ida to, act as Court Commissioners,
viz.: William H. Hocker, of Ocala,
Florida; Evelyn C. Maxwell, of Pen-
sacola, Florida, and James F. Glen, of.
Tampa, Florida; to render such asw
distance to the Court and perform
such duties :3 :ray be assigned to6'
them from time to time by the Court,
such selection and appointment, t
take effect on and from this date. It
is further ordered that this order 8aJ?
be entered ,pcn the minutes of -t.i4-
.The room which these-. Commit:
sToners will occupy is that adoin-
ing the main office of the Couort t,
the left entering, and that .
occupied by Chief Justice
which wis .made vacant by Judge
lor moving -ato w atip.,
The cases with which the Commis.
sioners will deal, at first, will be
those which.have been on the Court
docket for some length of time, -and,
except in a few instances, had been
continued owing to the death or dis-
qualification of some member of the
Court. They will take these cases in
their order and each member of tae
commission pass upon them accord-
ing to his Judgment. The commission
will have no chairman, that is, each
will have equal voice with the others,
and all thus be upon the same foot-
ing. Their final opinions will be
handed with each ease into the Court,
which will examine them arnd render
a final judgment.
These Commisslonuer- are all able
gentlemen, well known throughout
Florida for their integrity, industry

will no doubt result in soon bringing
the Court up with its docket.

One of Leon's Most Prominent Citi-
zens is No More, :
The death of Mr. T. J. Roberts,
which took place last Friday night, the
6th inst., was, though not much of a
surprise, notertheless- a -considerable
shock to his many friends and acquain-
tances in this city. He also had a host
of friends scattered throughout this
State and many States, who will re-
member him well and be deeply pained
at his loss.
Mr. Roberts had. from a very early
age, been identified with Leon county
and Tallahassee business circles. He
began business in this county as a
young man upon a large plantation,
and with only a few thousand of dol-
lars which he soon augmented to more
than double the original amount. He
experimented with a number of arti-
cles, and always managed to come out
even or pretty nearly so, if he did not
make money; at least as much as he
had anticipated. A prominent citizen
in mentioning his qualities, relates
that he was very quick to catch a point,
repair a loss, etc., and cites an instance
of how Mr. Roberts was visiting in
Norfolk, Va., with his wife, when the
news was telegraphed him of :the lo@s
Sby fire of his cotton gin and bullying,
and that within three weeks froo the

from active business, but he uld not
remain inactive long, and began

morning, September 7th, at 1 o'clock
.a. m., the body being burl at his

vices were conducted at the idence

EXEMPT FROM AXATION.
Comptroller Croom mailed out to
tax assessors and all o hers interested,

"Notwithaftnding t fact that these
provisions of the saw re clear and ex-'
plicit, the tax psesso and collectors
have in many instanCes assessed and
sold land which had already been.once
sold to the State, thereby causing great
expense to the at e-for advertising,

RETURN TO FIRST PRINCIPLES.
The Gainesville Sun quotes approv-
ingly the following paragraph from the
"There is no more firmly established
principle than that the promiscuous
admission of a large number of ap-
prentices will ruin any trade. ,The ii-
evitable and invariable result is poor
work, the reduction of wages and the
entire demoralization of the craft.This
is so well known and established that
there is not a union in the world but

The Herald utterances are prompted
by the declaration of some of Tampa's
large cigar manufacturers that they

they are forced to this expensive ex-
tremity as the only alternative to rid
themselves from the domineering con-
trol of Restistencia, the cigarmaker's
nnion, if they are to remain in Tampa.
Notwithstanding the editor of the
Sun confidently clinches his and the
Herald ,Man's judgment with the de-
claration that the position is the out-
come of fifty. years' association one
way or another with unions, we are
.onstrained to differ with him. The
present demoralization of the steel

mnakers' business at Tampa, proclaims
In thunder tones the absolute and un-
qualified' fallacy of the argument.

The County Commidsioners of Hills-
borough county have called a special
election to determine whether or not
they shall issue bonds in the sum of
I our Hundred Thousand Dollars for
the purpose of constructing good roads.
This is a public spirited movement on
the part of Hillsborough county's com-
missioners ,which the people should
uphold by voting for bonds-and in-
deed the prospects are that they will
do so. The newspapers throughout
the county seem to favor the project,
and it is therefore pretty certain to go
Four Hundred Thousand Dollars is
a pretty big sum to spend on public
roads, but the experience of those
sections of the country which have
tried it-some of them spending even
larger sums than this-is that it pays
large dividends. Property within a
radius of five miles of the hard roads
so constructed doubles and trebles in
value and immigration flocks to a
community as a result of such enter-
Bonds to a great many people are
a big bugaboo. But there is no reason
for it. The issue of bonds for all such
public enterprises is the most equit-
able way in which they can be secured.
By direct taxation beforehand to raise
money for them would mean a fearful
drain upon the taxpayers, with no
benefit until the full amount is raised.
Then in that case we find the worse
than foolhardy anomaly of the pres-
ent generation taxing itself for the
benefit of all future ones.
On the other hand, the issue ot
bonds secures at once the benefits to
be derived from the improvements
and distributes the taxation over a
large number of years, during which it
is to be enjoyed, i.csides imposing the
tro rata amount pton all those who
are to enjoy the improvement.
Nothing can be fairer than such a

THE FLORIDA STATE FAR.
The question was asked your re-
porter a few days since, by a native of
Georgia, why Florida was to dave a
State fair at this time-this year in
particular, and especially why ,t was
to occur at Jacksonville, the fire-
swept city, instead of some other place
in the State. The reporter replied that
in the first place Florida intended to
have a State fair held somewhere in
the State at least once every few years;
second, that the ignorance of outside
States and individuals as to the real
resources and possibilities was such as
to make a State fair at this time nec-
essary; and third, that because Jack-
sonville had so lately been a fire-
swept city, people were not to thinK or
to believe that she had stopped grow-
ing, or was unable to keep up wach the

DEATH OF MRS. MAXWELL.

Mr. and Mrs. David Ellis, of this city,
died in Jacksonville Saturday, Sep-

hopes of recovering from, a severe at-
tack of a complication of malarial fe-
ver and other troubles consequent up-
on a residence in the swampy region of
Louisiana with her husband, who is
a carpenter, and had taken a contract
for several buildings in that locality.
Mrs. Maxwell had returned to Talla-

Jacksonville, when her husband went
to that city to work in the burned dis-
trict. She had been ailing for about
ten weeks before going to Jackson-

"In this every Floridian should give-
his earnest support, and every farmer
in particular should bend his energies
to do his share in making the fair a
It is time now that our farmers
throw away little petty jealousies and
looking each other straight in the face,
put their best foot forward in an hon-
est endeavor to let each other know
what each is doing. All do not want
to work at one thing. If everybody
took to cultivating tobacco they would
soon create a surplus of tobacco, and
a dearth -of other produce. Suppos-
ing 100 farmers had exhibits of the
same crop, each contending for a
single prize, if there should be one, of
$10 for the farmer who exhibi.ed the
best tobacco crop! How much better
it would be to know that ten farmers
(one out of ten each of whom com-
peted for a separate crop) had won
ten prizes for ten different "best crops
in the State" of say, hay, corn, cassava,
sugar cane, tobacco, potatoes, fruits in
general, oranges, etc. And a vereact
from the judges would give a Flor-
ida farmer credit for the best this,
or that crop in the United States. Flor-
ida will grow something-a good many
things-better than any other State In
the Union. This is a fact The people
of Florida and of the United States
will open their eyes to the truth of this
statement after our State fair.
The scope of the fair is told in a few
words by another extract from the
same paper: "When the fair was first
started it was determined by the man-
agers to have erected large buildings
for the various exhibits, and specially
commodious was- planned the main
hall, but subsequent events forced
them to adopt expedients. It will be
remembered that Jacksonville contri-
buted-rather subscribed-liberally to-
wards Its maintenance, and enough
money was in sight to carry out every
plan proposed by the management;-
but the great calamity that fell upon
the people of Jacksonville drove the
Board of Directors to the necessity of
changing the plans or to hold the fair
at some other city; but the broad-
hearted msgngnimity of other cities
served notice upon the managers that
they would not compete for the fair,
nor wouLi they accept it since Jackson-
ville suffered so deeply, and that we
should hold the fair among the ruins,
so as to show to the world the cour--
age and grit Floridians have. So, tak-
ing all these things into consideration,
it was determined to continue Jack-
sonville as a location, but with the
modified plans, and as a result, instead
of attempting to erect a bufiding for
the main hall, a large tent,151x300 has
been rented, under which the exhibits
will be collected.
"The management has come to the
conclusion that misfortune builded bet-
ter than it knew, because It is now
thought that the tent plan will be on
of the most attractive and novef plan.

than any building possible to erec. in
the short time. It will show to the
world that the climate of Florida is
such that a great .State fair can be
held under a tent in the last of No-
This last extract answers pretty
conclusively our friend's question
about the possibilities of holding a
State fair in-"fire-swept" Jacksonville.

other States, and don't you forget it!
DEATH OF MISS LIZZIE .C& FTON.
The death, last Fricay night, of Miss

THE GnORGTA PINE RAILROAD.
The Georgia, Al!be mn and Florida
Railroad means business, in spite of
certain doubtful shakes of -he head
of some Tallthmnaerana. A gentle-
who takes great interest in all of our
improvements, rode out to visit it one
day last week, apd returned enthus-
lastic as to the OFogress being made in
this direction. A large force is en-
gaged laying tracks, another is widen-
ing the line of route in order to pre-
pare for the laying of a double track,
which latter has been started-more
than started-he says, will soon be
completed. There are several gangs of
workmen busy at different points, all
hard at work. Besides Hanks' camp of
between fifty and sixty laborers, there
are several other smaller gangs; all*
being busy on different parts of the
road bed. The rails and other iron
work are being placed as fast as the
work will allow.
The road will run from Tallahassee
to Bainbridge, from Bainbridge to Ar-
lington, and already trains are running
between the last two named places.

The G., A. and F. has also made
connections with the Seaboard Air
Line and the Carrabelle Railroads. It
is also hauling large loads of cross-
ties on Southeastern cars along the
line of that road. The prospect for a
speedy completion of the work now di-
dectly under the superintendent's care
as well as the probability of other con-
nections and extensions, is brighter
than it has been for some .-me. All
will rejoice when this road is com-
pleted and in good running order,
which will be accomplished before the
New Year comes in.

A NARROW ESCAPE.
A party of young people belonging
to Tallahassee's circle of popular
young ladies and gentlemen came
-.near meeting a frightful death one
night last week. They endeavored to
keep the whole hing quiet, but what
purports to be an authentic story has
reached the Taliabaxsesn, and is as
A half dozen or more couples went
out for a straw ride Thursday-night.
The stars were shining bright, and
later the. moon came to light the
merry-makers on their way. Every-
thing went smoothly anu 'all those
along believing in getting as much
pleasure out of life as possible. No
one counted tie flight of time.
Lake Jackson was reached at a
late or early hour. No one is certain
just which, and the placid waters,
rippling coyly under the rays of the
moon, offered special inducements for
Two boats were handy. One was
taaded and pushed off with its pre-
cious freight. The other followed.
But it did not go far before the young
man in charge found that it was rap-
idly sinang. No time was given to
reach shore, only a few feet away,
so the young man, raising a com-

low the shoulders.

soon safely landed without mishap.

ed the young ladies. To ride eight
miles home in those wet skirts, cool
as the night was, would be suicidal.
A bright idea suggested a remedy.
There was a hurried, whispered con-
sultation, and they all disappeared is
the woods, leaving the youhg men
staring in blank wonder. Soon after
they returned, all dry and all drezsea
in spotless white just as they had
been, thanks to the pale moonlight,
prior to the ducking.
What some of the boys would like
to know is how it all happened, and
those who have a pretty good idea
will not tell.
The names of all the parties to this
little tragedy are withheld, even that
of the young man who by his coolness
probably saved several -lives, because
the young ladies, it has been suggest-
ed, might feel mortified. There is
no reason for this, however. We.be-
lieve they will agree with us that the
heroism of the young man and of the
young woman who suggest ed relief
for the unfortunate situation makes
the story too good to go unpublished,
EXAMINATION OF TREASURY.
The recent examination of the con-
dition of the State Treasury by the
State Examiner, Mr. W. V. Knott and
Governor Jennings, hat ended after a
very complete and careful examination.
All accounts were passed upon, all re-
ceipts nd expenditures vouched for, and
the cash in the treasury counted. As
all were found correct, the result has
been very saisfactory, and the Treas
urer is to be congratulated upon his
manifestly correct handling of the

years of age, who is called Sam. Sam

For.a moment the confusion was ter-

But of the multitude which wit-

turmoil and turbulence there was but
one mind which seemed to retain its
equilibrium, one hand which remain-

unflinching calmness and one voice
which retained its even tenor and fal-

This was done, the automobile am-

Arrived at the Milburn residence ,all

The prisoner at first proved quite
communicative, so much so in fact
that little dependence could be placed
on what he said. He first gave his
name as Fred. Neiman, said his home
was in Detroit, anu that he had been
in Buffalo about a week. He said he
had been boarding at a place in
Broadway. Later, this place was lo-
cated at John Nowak's saloon, a
Raines law hotel, No. 1078 Broadway.
Here the prisoner occupied room o.
Nowak, -e proprietor, said he knew
very Attle about his guest.
He came here, he declared, last Sat-
urday, saying he had come to see the
Pan-American, and that his home was
in Toledo. He had been alone at all
times about Nowak's place, and had
no visitors. In his room was found a
small traveling bag of cheap make.
It contained an empty cartridge box
and few clothes.
W..h these facts in hand Lae police
went at the prisoner with renewed
vigor in the effort to obtain either a
full confession or a straight account
of his identity and movements prior
to his arrival in Buffalo. He at first
admitted that he was an anarchist in
sympathy at least, but denied that the
attempt on the life of the President
was the result of a preconcerted plan.
The police afterward learned that
the real name of the would-be assass-
in is Leon Czolgosz. He was born in
Detroit and came here from Cleve-

SIGNALING TO MARS.
The Difieulty of Dc'ngr So by Means
The very largest city that this earth
has ever known would be altogether
too small to be visible to a being
dwelling on the planet Mars, even if
that being were endeavoring to see it
with a telescope as powerful as the
greatest and most perfect instrument
in any observatory on this globe.
If the whole extent of Lake Superior
was covered with petroleum and if that
petroleum was set on fire, then, I think,
we may admit that an Inhabitant of
Mars who was furnished with a tele-
scope as good as that which Percival
Lowell uses at Flagstaff might be able
to see that something had happened.
But we must not suppose that the
mighty conflagration* would appear to
the Martian as a very conspicuous ob-
ject. It would, rather, be a very sma~
feature, but still I think It would not
be beyond the reach of a practiced ob-
server in that planet.
On the other hand, If an area the sise
of Lake Superior on Mars was to be
flooded with petroleum and that petro-
leum was to be kindled, we should ex-
pect to witness the event from here not
as a great and striking conflagration,
but as a tiny little point of just dis.
cernible light. The disk of Mars is
not a large object, and the conflagra-
tIon would not extend over the three
hundredth part of that disk.
It is sufficient to state these facts to
show that the possibility of signaling
to Mars is entirely beyond the power of
human resources.-8ir Robert &. Ball

One of the stories told by old em-

Washington is of the time when Gen-
eral Rosecrans was register. The gen-
eral never smoked and knew nothing
about cigars. He determined, however,
to have a box of good cigars handy for
the benefit of friends who might drop
into the register's office. The general
accordingly purchased a box of expen-
sive cigars, put them In a drawer and
forgot all about them for some time.
Then, one day, when a friend was call-
ing, the general remembered the cigars
and brought them out.
"I know nothing about cigars," said
Rosecrans, "but I am told that these
are very fine."
His friend lighted a cigar, and a look
of pain and horror instantly overspread
his face. He tried to conceal his feel-
ings and puffed manfully at the cigar
for several seconds. Then Rosecrans,
noticing that he was growing pale, ask-
ed what was-the trouble.
"General," said the visitor, "I don't
want to be ungrateful, but I'm afraid

"Camphor!" stammered Rosecrans,

drawer, he brought to view several gar-

officially returned as that of "Justifi-
able homicide," or self defense. The
principal witness being the young girl,
Maggie Williams, who, it seems, the
deceased negro had tried to frighten
into going away with him. She refus-
ed to go, ana sent for Mr. Chaires, on
whose property she was living, to come
and defend her. Tne negro, whose real
name was George Pelite, said that she
should go with him, and proceeded to
put her household goods into his
wagon for the purpose of removing
As Mr. Chaires had a claim upon
them for money advanced to the girl
as a "cropper," he commanded the ne-
gro not to move anything.
At this Pelite jumping down from
his wagon advanced upon Mr. Chaires,
who retreated a few steps, and then
raising his gun fired. The negro stag-
gered and moved to the back of the
house, where he fell and almost imme-
As already stated, Mr. Chaires came
immediately to the city and gave him-
self into the custody of the Sheriff.
The remains were viewed the fol-

A Chaires correspondent of the
Times-Union and Citizen gives the fol-
olwing graphic account of the affair:
Chaires, Sept. .-A negro man, who
has been working at Griffln's sawmill,
was killed late Wednesday afternoon
by John G. Chaires, a farmer, whose
plantation is situated seven miles
south of Chaires.
Mr. Chaires, immediately a..er com-
mittting the deed, went to Tallahas-
see and advised the authorities of
what he had done. A coroner's jury
repaired to the plantation, and after
viewing the body and taking the tes-
timony of several persons present, re-
turned a verdict of justifiable homi-
cide. The circumstances are as fol-
This negro (no one seems to know
his name) has been visiting a negro
woman who is a "cropper" on the
plantation of Mr. Chaires. Sie has
planted and cultivated a crop of corn
and cotton. J. H. Patterson had ad-
vanced her supplies, with Mr. Chaires
as secura&y. The dead negro had hired
a team and driven out to Mr.
Chaires' plantation with the avowed
determination "to move the woman
or sleep in h- that night." he
brought his gun, and informed the
woman that she must go with him,
carrying all her effects.
Mr. John G. Chaires had driven to
Tallahassee in the morning, and the
woman, aware of the fact, and iear-
ing the negro man would shoot her
should she refuse to accompany him
decided to agree to go, hoping to in-
vent excuses which would delay her
departure until Mr. Chaires should
return. Tnis she succeeded in dong.
As soon as she learned of Mr. Chaires'
return, she sent a negro girl witu the
request that he would come down to
her cabin at once, and to bring his
gun, that the negro man had a gun,
and that he had sworn that she
should go with him in spite of all the
Chaires in the county.
Mr. Chaires took his gun and went
by the house of one of his negro ten-
ants requesting the latter to accom-
pany him. This the tenant refused to
do, saying: "Dat nigger hab his gun,
and he swears he is gwing to carry
dat woman off, or sleep in h--to-
night, and dat when he starts to

Mr, Chaires then applied to another
tenant, who also refused to go. When
Mr. Chaires reached the cabin taie
man had already loaded the woman's
effects on the wagon.
"What does all this mean?" asked
The negro replied: "It means I am
going to move this woman or sleep In

man, reminding her that she owed

A Drug Fiend Makes Himself a
Last week a man, woman and two
small children struck town from-no'
one knows where, and at once attract-
ed attention. The man by his queer
actions and the woman and children
by their neglected appearance.
They took lodgings at Johnson's
boarding house near the C T. & G.
depot, paying in- advance, and the man
who gave his name as Dent, proceeded
to get acquainted with the police force,
He approached Officer Dennard, and
asked him to lock him up. Some ques-
tioning elicited he fact that he was a
cocaine fiend, and pretended he
wanted to be locked up to keep away
from Lme drug. The officer could not
He appealed to Chief Braswell and
then Mayor -Gorman. To the latter he
insisted that he be locked up and a
physician sent to attend him until he
was cured of the habit The mayor,
of course, could not spend me city's
money that way.
Subsequently he approached Chief
Braswell and asked how long he wouMa
confine him for getting drunk. The
Chief replied that for ordinary drunk-
they did not confine prisoners for a
great length of time, but if he, Dent,
got drunk on purpose just to get lock-
ed up, he, the chief, would recommend
that the mayor confine him for thirty
days. Dent concluded he had better
not monkey with that ruse.
He is a pitiable looking object. His
features are drawn, his step quick out
halting and to one not acquainted with
the cause of his trouble, he looks ut-
terly demented. He carries a hyper-
dermic syringe with him and injects
enough cocaine in his arm at one
time to kill a dozen or more men un-
accustomed to taking it. That his
system is thoroughly saturated with
the deadly poison is evident.
Dent told several stories about him-
se.f. He claims among other things
to have served twelve years on .de po-
lice force of Columbia, S. C. His father
he says, was chief of police of that city.
His funds, he said, were getting pre..y
low, and he wanted to get to Pensacola.
Thursday night he became so fran-
tic at the boarding house that nothing
could be done with him. Mr. John-
son had to hunt up a physician and
have him go down and quiet him with
drugs, afer which he was docile the
remainder of the night.
Monday Mr. Johnson came up town
and swore out a warrant, charging
him with insanity, the particular hal-
lucination being that he must have
poisonous drugs. A jury was empan-
eled and rendered a verdict adjudging
him insane, and he was ordered sent to
the asylum. It is believed that once

would become frantic, and using all
kinds of vehement and often obscene
language, would go for them with

For this reason the City Council
years ago passed an ordinance impos-
ing a heavy fine upon anyone teasing
or otherwise molesting Tom Johnson
on the streets. For years thereafter no
trouble was experienced with him.
But about a year or two ago his
affliction grew to such an extent that
he would run away from home and
wander off. For a long time the au-
thorities refrained from taking him
from his sister, he being her only liv-
ing near relative, and her devouon to
him being something pathetic in the
extreme. It finally had to be done,
however, and since that time he had
been confined in the asylum.

A WORTHY SUCCESSOR.
"Something New Under
All Doctors have tried to cure CA-
iARRH by the use of powders, acid
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
iorm. Their powders dry up the mu-
cuous membranes causing them to
crack open and bleed. The powerful
acids used in the inhalers have en-
tirely eaten away the same mem-
branes that their makers have aimed
to cure, while pastes and olntmammt
cannot reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has for
many years made a close study and
specialty of the treatment of CA-
TARRH, has at last perfected a Treat-
ment which when f'aJtlly used, not
only relieves at once, but pe .sranLy
cures CATARRH, by removing the
cause, stopping the diaw'hges and cur-
ing all inflammation. It is the only
remedy known to science that actually
reaches the afflicted part~ This won-
derful remedy is known as "SNUF-
PLES, the GUARANTEED CATARRH
CURE," and is sold at the extmely
low price of one dollar, each kage
containing internal and external mel-
icne sufficient for a full month's treat-
ment and everything necessary to its
"SNUFFLES" Is the only perfect
nest Harvesting Mac1
inery in the World.
