Buffalo Bill says tliat Mr. Gladstone Ls a “genu-win# clever feller and one o' the boys.'' The grand old man is doubtless now ready to depart to a lletter world. If Texas decides to prohibit the sale of in toxicating liquors, the bowse knife, the r< ▼olver and the shot gun will cease to be so prominent at social gatherings in that State. It is alleged tliat I)r. I* h Heller, a faith fure man. has healed many jn-rvons in At lanta who wen* lame orothei-wise grievously afflicted. It is strange that a man with rocta a name should resort to prayer a* a healing agency. But then, what's in a name? The prices which were obtained at the City's sale of lots in the new extension yes terday are pretty good evidence that confidence in the city’s future is very Strong. The City Council ought to proceed to open streets through the extension at Once. Theatre managers say tliat next soason Southern theatres will have to depend upon etock companies composed of home talent. It is to be ho|ied that borne talent will be a little better than the majority of that which has heretofore displayed itself in Southern theatres. In New Orleans on Friday of last week three men committed suicide. One was a tobacconist, another a shoemaker, and still another a carpenter. It is said that mom suicides occur in the spring than in any other season of the year. Perhaps some physician may bo able to explain why this is so. Lawyer Simon Stevens, of New York, nays that Antwerp was once the world's com mercial centre, then Amsterdam, then Liv erpool and now London. He thinks New York will be the next to occupy the position. It certainly does look as if the commercial empire were drifting toward this side of the Atlantic. A dispatch fixm New York to the New Orleans Jinn says that Mr. Dorsheimor has sold the Star to a syndicate composed of K. A. Burke, of New Orleans; A. H. Brio, of Gal veston, and 11. W. Grady, of Atlanta. A similar dispatch has been sent to the Shreveport Times. What does Mr. Dors beimcr say alxiut the matter? The New Haven, Conn., (tapers announce that President and Mrs. Cleveland will posi tively lie in that city on Juno 17 to attend the dedication of the soldiers’ and sailors’ monument. It begins to look as if a com mission would have to be appointed to de termine Just what places the President will really visit during tho summer mid fall. Little llnek. Ark., has joined the cities that enforce Sunday laws. All saloons are now required to close at 12 o’clock Saturday night, and are not allowed to open until the following Monday morning. The progress tf temperance in this country is really wonderful. Tho prediction that prohibition will prevail may he fulfilled sooner than sven the most sanguine expect. Dr. J. William White, senior professor of physical science in the University of Penn sylvania, has issued nn order forbidding the students to use tobacco iu nny form. (Some years ago tho same order was promulgated, fcnd it was in operation just one day. This time, however, the students may obey the doctor, but if he wants to l*j overwhelmed by a rebellion let him forbid the playing of baso ball. Gen. E. A. Merritt, former Collector of the isn't of Now York, says that the Re publicans should look for the strongest uiun hud then unite and elect him President. Ho thinks that if the Democrats nominate President Cleveland they will have to run im on bis record and nothing else. The Republican* nmy follow Gen. Merritt’s ad vice as for os the selection of tboir Presiden tial candidate is concerned, but they will tot find it easy to elect him. President Sic' eland 'an very well afford to stand Ipon hi* record. If them arc any flaws In it they are insignificant, and the people will vo/lily overlook them. There is some Interesting tall; iilsmt Geor gia politics Just now. “prominent Dem ternt” nays that, the young men will have a •arid elate for Governor at the next election elected from the "since the war” gen ration. Another “prominent Demo rrat" Intimates that the protection Ist* will lUempt to send men to Congress next year •rbo aro in sympathy with the lira. B. J. Randall. It i* a little early to begin tlv Suri|*'.lgii in Georgia, mid it is not lniproini ile that the “prominent Democrats” who vrofnei to kixiw so much are mistaken, It vii l be woli enough to worry with the l'rtvti leutial •:ux.*csUin a little -.vldlc longer be •~e Ur'kiiua bUw Dt.litiia. ! The Spartanburg- Encampment. I Extensive {.repartitions are being made • for the first int nftatc encampment of farmers, to be held at the encampment grounds at Spurtanbni-g, S. C., t*eg'ruling Aug. J and continuing to Aug. C. The en campin' nt w it! 1* under the auspices of the Patrons of Hnebacdry of Georgia, South Carolina. Alabama. Team -ee and North Carolina, and it pr imiv-- to bring together a very large number of farmers, a* well a* profe* dual and buesness men, politicians and capitalists. About every other interest lias it* organi zations and annual meetings and why should not the farmers, who represent the greatest of all interests, the agricultural, have their annua] gatherings' Encampments, like this on*- that is to meet at Spartanburg, are held at the North and West, and they have been productive of a great deal of good. Their purpose is not to assail any industry or to make war upon any class of people. The aim is not to organize to promote agricultu ral interests bv means of strikes or boycotts. The sole object is to afford the fanners an opportunity to have a big talk with each ether about agricultural matters, and to as sist each other by showing what has been accomplished in tlieir respective sections by this or that method of farming, by mechan ical appliance* of different kinds and by the use of the various home-made and manufac tured fertilizers. The scheme is to present all that is new and interesting about the most profita ble way to conduct a farm or a garden, and about the management of stock, the dairy and the poultry yard. The encampment, will cover thirty acres of ground, and there will he arrangements for showing all sorts of farm machinery,tool* and implements. Products of the farm, garden ami dairy will be exhibited, and the farmers will have a chance to pick up new ideas about a hundred things that will both in terest and benefit them. Those who have made agriculture a study will be present and deliver lectures on subjects pertinent to the occasion, and though their views on many subject* may lie theoretical rather than practical, they will furnish matters for thought which the farmers in many in stances will lie able to utilize. The encampment is not to be a money making affair as the grounds will be free. The expenses of it will be home by the sale of restaurant privileges and of space in the grand pavilion to exhibitors who have agri cultural machinery and implements which they want to bring to the attention of farm ers. There is another feature that Is worthy of notice. Farmers are requested to bring with them, and to place on exhibition, speci mens of minerals they may find on their farms, even though they do not know the character of them. There will lie present, doubtless, capitalists anxious to purchase mineral lan<ls, and the encampment will offer an opportunity to farmers to discover whether or not they have valuable mineral deposits on their farms. Of course the politician will be there and inay utilize the occasion to vary the pro ceedings with a little political tulk. While the encampment will have no jsilitical character whatever a speech or two from eminent public men rnny not lie out of place. The five States included in the encamp ment can, and doubtless will, make the oc casion an interesting one. They differ in elimiito, soil and productions, anil there an; radical differences in the appearance and ludnts of thought of their people. These differences will give variety to the encamp ment and add to its value in the estimation of- those in search of information. The location is all tliat could lie desired. It is healthy and convenient. The encampment will doubtless prove to be so satisfactory that it will Is; followed by others in other parts of the Mouth. Public Improvements In the County. The work of draining tliat part of Chat ham ooun* - which lies immediately south and cast of this city, with the exception of Harmon’s swamp, is aliout finished. The convicts are now engaged In draining that swamp, which is aliout four miles from the city. When the work there is completed the area drained will embrace all the lands between the Ogeechee road on the west, Warsaw and Vernon rivers on the cast and the Montgomery cross road on the south. In addition to this improvement the local drainage at Isle of Hope, Thunderbolt and Montgomery has received the attention of the county authorities, and several good roails huvo been constructed nnd old ones repaired. There are three other important public Improvements which have been under con sideration for a long ti:n", and which ought now to receive attention. The first is the extension of Isi vers lane to the Skidaway road* The projected road will be an important factor in promoting the prosperity of the county and the growth of the city, as it will be virtually an extension of Amlerson street. Its lines have been es tablished and the right-of-way has been ole tained from all the Interested property hold ers excepting one. Theseeond, and probably the most neces sary of all tho proposed public improve ments, is tho draining of the Vale lloyal plantation. The locality of the planpttinn is improving steadily and rapidly. The Central railroad and Ocean Steamship Com pany have immense interests there, tho Vale Royal Manufacturing Company bus its facpiriiw there, the city water works are In that vicinity and the entire section, for a mile and a half west of the Ogoeelu> canal, is covered with small farms and gardens, which are very productive. The health of the city, as well as of thoso who live or carry on business In that locality, requires that it shall bo drained, and that, too, at an early a day as possible. The third improvement ls tho construc tion of a road through the Vale Royal plan tation. The necessity for it has been recog nized for the fiat seventeen years. There was uueh a road once, but tho destruction of tho bridge across tho canal, in connection with other things, caused it P> bo closed. There is now no public roadway to the water works. The county has long needed good roads and good drainage, und the prospect that it will Have both in the near future is very promising,) Portions of tho county have t Ism now, nniV|>tlior portions will hnvo them in giswl time. Tiie convict* will moon com plete t he work south of the city, if they have not u!ready completed it, and tho County Commissioners should put them on the works above referred to ut once. An Athens huly suggests that tho people of Georgia erect a limit and commodious cottage in RlcbmouJ, under tho uuspicas of tlie S*hlioiV Home, as a memorial in honor of Thomas 11. It. Cobh. The suggestion is a good one, and should bo promptly named out. The lUv, Dr. MeUlymi has becomu a 100 old to uu intoi’caUng. THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, MAY 4. 1887. The Mysterious Thistle. The syndicate of Heotehnien who are buihling the Tnistle to win the America’* cup this summer has thus far been reinarS;- ebly success? ul in k-riing the'-har.tcter of the vessel a m-. ret . Whether -h<- j„ a cutter or a esntre-boam . arh*. is a question in which there l- great interest aroaug yacht* ir,'-ii. Th“ ■ i.or*- -- -;>ri appears to lie tliat while she has some of the ’features of a cutter -lie ha- a centiv board. Mr Watson, her designer, was in this oonutry last year during the contest between the Mayflower and Galatea, and. it Ls said, was very much impreteed with the advaatag-so? tbe centre board. It i- believed that he has adopted it in the ThLrtle. Even the general dimensions of the Thistle were kept a profound secret until it became necessary to disclose them in plac ing the challenge Ln the hands of the Ameri ca’s cup committee. They are as follows: Length at load water line, S> feet : breadth, 20 feet 3 inches: depth of hold, 14 feet 1 inch; registered tonnage. 100.-Y It will be noticed that the breadth of beam Is very great—too great, in fact, for a boat built on the English model—and justifies the opinion that the designer of the Thistle has been influenced by what he has seen of the American sloop. When the v-ssel was launched at Glasgow it was thought that a glimpse of her would be obtained, but that proved to be a mis take. She was completely covered with white canvas, and iu that condition was towed to G-iuriok to receive her fittings. It is now understood that her character will not 1* revealed until she sails her first race, which will be May 28, the occasion being the Itoya! Thame* Yacht Club match. Doubtless the Scotchmen are quite confi dent of carrying off the America’* cup. It will take a much better yacht to <lo that, however, than the Galatea or Genesta proved to Vie. Last year and the year be fore it wa* quite satisfactorily demonstrated that the American sloop Ls superior to the English cutter for spied, and unless the Thistle approaches the American type there is not much danger tliat the America’s cup will cross the ocean this year.) Gen. Faine, the owner of the Mayflower, which won the cup last year, Ls pushing his new steel sloop to completion as rapidly as possible. She will have a larger sail area, in proportion to her size, than the Mayflower has, and it is expected that she will be a faster vessel. An Unheeded Complaint. The Morning News has a serious com plaint to make against those in charge of the city water works—a complaint which it has heretofore had occasion to make privately— namely, the shutting off of the water supply without notice. An ample supply of water Ls at all times a necessity in a city like Sa vannah, and it should never be cut off, ex cept in case of an accident, without timely notice.) Such notice is absolutely neces sary to thoso using steam power. Yesterday a little after 1 a. m. it was dis covered that then: was no water in the city mains, and for several hours the newspaper press, stereotyping machinery, elevator and electric lights of tho Morning News estab lishment had to be stopped and the print ing of the morning paper delayed for want of water for steam pur poses. Had timely notice been gi there is no reason why it shouttoV Juive been, as the water-works are eonn-M*t' by telephone with tho city telejihoup provision could have been made for u supply of water. Savannah is no longer a village, and ‘ tits water system is too important to tie cut offl It may Vie said that the Morning News was the only establishment using water at tho hour mentioned. That is only a greater reason why notice should have been given. Anarchist Most thus describes tbe hor rors which beset him while he was confined on Blackwell’s Island: “First, the officials kept me shaved and trimmed like a bald faced gorilla, always ready for exhibition to a gang of well-fed bums of either sex every day. Second, tho Protestant chaplain was determined to savo my black soul. Third, I was compelled to rub elbows with the scum of Gotham’s vice, and these fellows took a fiendish delight in playing all kinds of tricks upon mo. Fourth, my mate at the drill would continually say: ‘When I look at this fellow I feel as if I were an organ grinder, who had a monkey skipping around by his side.’” Dreadful! Most ought not to have boon made to suffer so. Next time ho is sent to Blackwell's the authorities ought to look him in a cell to himself. Judge S. R. Atkinson, of the Brunswick Circuit, is one of the youngest judicial offi cers in the State, but he is one of the most capable and faithful. His charges to tlie grand juries in Ids circuit indicate that he intends, ns far as ho can, to enforce the laws. In Brunswick, recently, lie instructed the grand jury to ferret out violators of the laws made to protect tho sanctity of the Sabbath. He is on tlie right track Laws affecting the Sabbath should be rigidly en forced. It is stated that Mason Valley, Nov., is filling up with pianos. In some houses out there two pianos may be found, ono in the parlor nnd another in the kitchen. A beef seller who visited tlie Valley, not long ago, says that he missed his supper ut the house of a rancher with whom he stopped, because while the rancher’s wife was hammering out tunes in the pallor a concert was going on in the kitchen. A lunatic asylum will soon be needed in Mason Valley. Robert E. Randal), brother of the Con gressman, lias recently been very successful in operating iu Wall street While ho re sembles his brother in some respects he is much smaller and is a more slender man. His moustache is long and droops over his month in Turklafcftushion, giving him rather a brigandish appearance. By profess on he Is a lawyer. If lie ever took any interest ln ixilitic* nobody outside of his immediate friends ever heard of it. Same months ago Robert Law, tho mil lionaire coal dealer of Chicago, predicted tliat. the interstate commerce law would send up the price of coal iu his citji It didn't do it, however, and Law now explains that tho reason i* Imcniise the railroads towered rates. He says that tho railroads are gradually dis regarding tho law in many respects, and lie thinks that it. will not stand long in its pres ent slmoe. i’he Commissioners may surprise tho railroad* yot. The negro convention which is to meet at Indianapolis on July 8 next will have two objects, First, n demand will be mode that tlie Republican* insert in their platform next yearn plank “looking to remedying the present.

Fi om the piattahoooa Tune Dem.) Secretary Lamar s address on the life and character of John C. flalhimn is a sulendid con triliution to critical literature and' to history. Tnere 1* nothing flashy in it, it marks the orator a scholar, a stod**nt. a gentleman of taste, accurate judgment of men and their acts, and above all proves him an honest, sincere citizen and patriot.

A clever example of repartee occurred in a Walnut street boarding house the other evening. Among the boarders are two ladies aged re spectively about 33 and 33 years. Then- is also a gentleman upon whom the matrimonial eyes of the female twain are set. Twenty-two Is the favorite and Thirty-two never lets an oppor tunity for a "dig" pass unimproved. On the occasion spoken of Twenty-two made some witty remark that caused a ripple of laughter around the dinner table. "I don’t think that was worthy a laugh,” said Thirty-two. “It's as old as the hills, isn't it, Mr. ?” to the gentleman referred to. "Yes, I believe it is, Mbs Thirty-two,” was the re sponse; “but you must remember that Miss Twenty-two's experience does not extend so far back as ours.” Again all the “table” smiled except Thirty-two.

The temperance sermons of Bishop Ireland, of Minnesota, throughout Ireland have been listened to bv scores of thousands, and never since Father Mathew s time have such a number of pledges been signed anywhere There arc three prominent and active Demo crats in New Hampshire named Frank Jones, one in Portsmouth, one in Farmington and one in Concord. It is tho Portsmouth Jones who has invited the President to visit him. It is regarded as strange that Imth the Queen of Hawaii and the Heir Apparent should nliseut themselves from the Kingdom at I lie same time.

Won't that induce beatw sowing l 'Bp .ker -lf the spring is early It will!y lie very wet. so that the farmers won l get to sow any earlier, Mr Taunt*— Thai's just whit I think. Broker— Besides, it’s toe winter wheat that counts, you know: and the sowing of that was cut short by the .-ariy winter. Mr. Taurus—Well, it looks very favorable for an atitance. You may buy IO.uOC bushels for etc. Good day. Broker—Good day, sir. [Exit Mr. Taurus. Enter Mr Broon. a lamb with bearish ideas.} Broker—Good morning, Mr. Brton. How are you feeling to-day? Mr. Broon—Very well, thank you 'That's the aspect of wheat? Broker—There isn't much change. Mr Broon—Then of course it's bearish, for if it isn't going up it's coining down, you know. Broker—That's al>out the way of it. Mr. Broon— What do you think o? a short sale? Broker—lt looks like a sure thing. The mar ket isn't very high now, of course: but it has ijeen a good deal lower, you know, with far less production. Br. Broon—Yes: but the prospects of war in Europe must be taker; into consideration. Broker—Gh. the European war scare is a chestnut. It has no effect on wheat now. it's lieen worked too much. The fact is, the fellows who loaded up on a prospect of war have got pretty tired or their load, and they are likely to drop it any minute, and knock the starling out of the market. Mr. Broon—That's ray view exactly. Broker—Yes, sir.

Washington Letter to the New York Herald. A characteristic story is told at the expense of Henry F. Merritt, whom the President nomi nated a few days ago to be Consul at Chemnitz, Saxony. Mr. Merritt has been for the past eighteen months Consul at Aix la Chapelle. The Sunday following his arrival in Aix Mr. Merritt attended religious services at a little English chapel, where the lector, with great earnest news, invoked divine blessings upon Queen Vic toria. Albert Edward. King William of Germany, the Crown Prince, and "all others in authority.'’ Mr. Merritt, who is a very patriotic American and a staunch Cleveland man. could not under stand why the President of the United States should not be included in the invocation. At the first convenint opportunity he so notified the clergyman. The latter promised to think about it: but when the next Sunday came around there was no change in the programme, and the President of the United States was not referred to, even by implication. This was more than the Amencm could stand, and he accordingly sprang from his seat with great ceremony and stalked haughtily out of the church. When he next met the rector that gentlemon inquired the cause of bis sudden departure from church the previous Sunday. Mr. Merritt informed him that he was disappointed at his refusal to pray for the Chief .Magistrate of his country, and that he would not attend services again until this was done. After some good-natured chaffing on both sides the clergyman agreed to comply with Mr. Merritt's request. The next Sunday Mr. Merritt, with a smile of conscious triumph, advanced to a front seat and awaited developments. When the reading of the prayer began and the usual form was gone through the minister hesitated for a moment, and then, looking in the direction of Mr. Mer ritt's pew, added solemnly, "and we also re spectfully invoke the Divine blessing upon Thy servant, the President ot the United States." The congregation was so astonished at this un looked-for interjection that they forgot for the instant to follow with the response: but not so Merritt, whose deep bass voice broke the silence w ith "We beseech Thee to hear us, good Izard,” in a tone so earnest, and. withal, so triumphant, that the surprised congregation realized at last the cause of his sudden indignation the week before, and fell to laughing so heartily that the clergyman was obiiged to suspend his reading until quiet had been restored. A MAN WITH TWO MOUTHS. He Can Drink for Hours Without Losing His Breath. Otto Depfor, of St. Louis, is at present the only individual in Omaha with two mouths. Therc are many people in Omaha who have mouth enough for two, hut Otto claims the belt as the actual possessor of two orifices through which he emits vocal sounds, says the Omaha Hrr. Koine lime ago he was struck by a falling derrick and his throat was injured so that liis windpipe closed at its upper end. A skillful surgical operation placed a silver tube in the breath pine and he was saved from actually dying for lack of air. Subsequently, the orifice to his mouth and nostrils opened again, and now Otto can emit the fumes of his last drink into the face of an appreciative but disgusted companion from two holes at the same time He can also play a mouth organ cither way. It is extremely difficult to appreciate to what extraordi nary uses Mr. Liepfor could not put his peculiar powers. Asa permanent police whistle he could be a sehivoctiing success. He could also drain a schooner of beer “without taking breath" as most people are obliged to take it, because while the amber liquid was gently and con 4-iuuousiv gurgling down one avenue, the pos sessor of this silver tills' breathing apparatus would be candy Indulging in Ins regular respira tions. There are great possibilities in store for Mr. Depfor The Tragic Tale of an Ambitious Youth. .V. HI Foss in TUt-mts. A youth of ambition longed for the fruition Of lining once perfectly dressed, His wish grew a fever ter a flue perfect heaver, Perfect gloves, pantaloons and a vest. But there came no fruition to quench his ambi tion, The suit, aias! never was bought: Hi* fond hope was cheated, “was never com pleted - Tills suit which be endlessly sought. He lived along meekly on eight dollars weekly, Expending five dollars on clothes. If ids coat is entire, his shoes shine like fire, Then there'll be a big hide In his hose, Whon his hose are replenished, his hat will bo Bill shed, And then he must buy a now hat; When his hat is secure, his soul must endure A ragged and shabby cravat. But times grow more sunny, he saves enough money To buy him some new pantaloons: He goes to his tailor as gay as a sailor, A whistling t omniums tunes. The pantaloons fit him—but Death he has hit him— In the moment of triumph he drops! The great joy that thrills him, it instantly kills him. At last he’s tve'l dressed—blit a corpse!

There is a curious story that this bird brings home from the seashore a stone that gives sight to her iledglings. This remarkable yarn appears in the Kennebec Journal: “Mr. J. M.

He was in the act of eating them, and on cracking one, lo! a tiny full-blown pink rose, which tilled the interior of the shell, are pea red. fresh and unfaded. How it came in the shell is an unsolved mystery.” The Criminal Club, of Y'ale College, an or ganization composed of students who have been arrested during their term for some misdeed or other, held its first annual banquet Monday night, covers being laid for twenty-four. The menu was most elaborate, and the speeches sparkl'd with humorous reminiscences in which the New Haven police largely figured. The following article is clipped from the so ciety column of that interesting paper, the Heppner lOre.) Gazette: "Miss Carrie Dillon will teach the school up Ram Gulch this spring. Carrie is now developing her muscle with a pair of dumb Ix'lls, ana proposes to subjugate old Tom Carter's freckle-faced boy if she has to break bis back and horsewhip old Tom if he in terferes." The only responsible bondsman of the default ing Treasurer of the town of Greenfield, Mass., was Charles Henry, an old and respected mer chant, who recently retired with just enough I money to keep him in decent comfort. At a town meeting it was voted by a big majority not to prosecute Mr. Henry, although the suit would undoubtedly be successful, because he would then be stripped of all his property. A tramp printer recently fell into the hands of the St. Paul police, who took him to court. "I'm sorry, Bill," said the Judge. "I've let you go a good many times, but I think that this time I il have to put you at work on the stone pile for about thirty days," "All right Judge," responded Bill; “you’ve got everything in your own hands, and can do as you please, but 1 11 tell you light now that I'm no geologist, al though a student of nature."

Soon it was whispered that "he man was John L.

A place on earth has been found where taxes are unknown.
