Friday a big blaze at Grady, a station on the East and iVest railroad, a few miles east of Cedartown, burned several ear loads of lumber. The'supposed origin of the fire was a spark from a passing engine on the railroad. The loss falls heavily upon Messrs. Morns & Tracy and Robert Brewer, mill men. No damage was done to the railroad. Some weeks ago, while on a raid into Goosepond district, Sheriff Winn, of Ogle thorpe county, was shot by some unknown party who was lying in ambush for him, the ball taking effect in his right breast, in flicting auite a painful wound.

Mr. Carnegie,, of Pennsylvania, a largo manufacturer of iron and steel, has been prospecting among the iron and manganese regions of Polk county during the past few days. As very few sections of even North west Georgia can boast of such rich ores and in such inexhaustible supplies as Polk county, it follows, as a matter of course, Mr. Carnegie was well pleased. At Sandersville Friday morning Noah Johnson (colored), finding his infant child guite sick, administered a powder which he found about the house.

McCormick, one of the enterprising and liberal hearted citizens of Thomasville, agreeably surprised, a few days ago, the several piptors of tho churches in tluit city, by inclosing to each one a warrantee deed to ft house and lot in the city. The considera tion of the deed* was the good and righteous influence of the different pastors of the city. Mr. McCormick is not a member of any church. Other towns would be proud to own such citizens as Mi'. McCormick ap peal's to be. At Forsyth, the trustees of the Monroe Fomoie College have devised a plan and will soon erect a commodious and well arranged boarding department connected with the college, which supplies a long felt want to that institution, mid will place it in compe tition with tho beit in the State. The pres ent senior class—the largest for many years past—have t/<?en notified by the piresident of the faculty that in the award of honora Miss Rosa E.

The snake had its den in a gulley Bear his house and lias been seen often during the past year, but no one I has been successful in getting near enough ■ to disiKiteh it until a few davs ago. Charlie r Law slipped up on the reptile and had a des perate tight. The snake looked very much like a rattler in shaiie and color, arid when attacked made a loud blowing noise like an infuriated gandev in gosling time. When killed Mr. Law discovered that it had a long horn on the end of its toil like a rooster’s spur. • Brooks Superior Court convened Monday morning, with Judge Hansell presiding. Ah unusual number of cases, civil and crfmnal, were continued for the time. The most ixn portent civil case was that of G. W.

The plaintiff sued for $5,000, and the jury after remaining out about twenty hours returned a verdict for the plaintiff for SSOO. The case of the. State vs. William Parmer, charged with the offense of “false swearing,” attracted considerable attention, lie was ably defended by Congressman Turner, under appointment by tne court, and was acquitted. The court adjourned Friday afternoon until to-morrow morning. Albany News and Advertiser: A Negro is a Negro just as much as an Irishman is an Irishman or a Frenchman is a French man, and is just as much entitled to have the name of liis race written with a big N. All recognized authorities agree as to the correctness of this view of the matter, we believe, but it is the custom of the news papers of tho day to print the name of this race with a little n. This results, we think, from the common use of the term to de nominate inferiority, or in a spirit of re proach. Nothing of this sort should ever override propriety in the established rales of grammar, orthography or anything else. Hereafter the News and Advertiser intends to write Negro with a big N. At Tallapoosa on Friday last, while the hands at Rev. J. C. Jackson’s saw mill were stopped for dinner, the mill shed took fire in some unaccountable way, and when it was reached by the hands, who were all near by, the flames had so rapidly spread that there was no chance to save it. Besides the sta tionary engine, planer and saws, Mr. Jack son’s traction engine was under part of the shod. The engines and machinery nre not entirely ruined but can lie placed in work ing condition again, although it will take much time and heavy expense to do it. Monday Mr. Jackson had the misfortune to lose some 10,000 or 15,000 feet of lumber by fire. This was being ldlndried, and acci dentally caught from the fire under it. The Clerk of the Superior Court of Early county, J. W. Alexander, Jr., is engaged in a work which will prove of inestimable value to the county m the future and will bring him a snug little sum also. He is preparing an abstract of all the deeds re corded in his office, which will is' arranged in numerical indexes in suitable books pre pared for the purpose. All the deeds, etc., from tho year 1831 up to tho present time which concern the county as it now stands will be recorded in one book, and those which were in original Early county, but now in other counties, will be placed in a separate book. The records in the office show that the first deed was recorded on May 11, 1861, nearly sixty-six years ago, by Nevin Mcßryde, Clerk of Superior Court. Mrs. N. B. Glover, of Newnan, met with a serious mishap one day last week. She sent a negro man out in the fields to gather a few stalks of elder, with which she de signed making a mouth wash for one of the children. The negro returned in a short while with a good sized bunch of what was supposed to lie elder, but for some reason Mrs. Glover suspected that the negro had made a mistake and brought thunaerwood instead of the elder, the resemblance being so close as to render such a mistake not only possible but very probable. Not satisfied with her own inspection, however, she called on one of her neighbors to assist in the examination. They finally agreed that the shrub was elder, and believing it to lie harmless, Mrs. Glover liegan washing the roots preparatory to making the desired tea In a few minutes her face, hands and arms oommemxvl to swell, and she then realized that she hail committed the very mistake which she had been so careful to avoid. The shrub pioved to be thunderwood. Deputy Marshal J. J. Rowe, in company with H. L. Cornell, was engaged all last Wednesday in hunting blockade stills in Haralson county, and succeeded in locating two. About sundown they went to the home of Mr. Cornell, about “six miles north west of Tallapoosa, to spend tho night. About midnight they heard persons ap proaching the nouse, and soon discovered a party of six or eight armed men, who sur rounded the building, and at a given signal tired a volley into it. In all about twenty shots were tired, when the party retired. There were in the houso besides the two men Mrs. Cornell and six children. The house is built of planks, which wore easily pene trated by the bullets, and the wonder is that someone was not killed, but fortunately ail escaped injury. The next fioruing a hand ful of bullets were picked up in the house. It is not long since a similar attack was made on Cornell’s house, but he was absent at the time. In December last the house of Deputy Marshal Rowe's father was burned by incendiaries. Dublin Gazette: On last Saturday night when the up passenger train passed Harri son, on the Wrightsvtlle and Tennille rail road, some miscreant standing beside the track threw a large iron spike, which struck the engine cal) near the seat of the engineer. The missile was thrown with such force that an indentation the size of the spike was made in the wood. Engineer Lanier stopped his engine, and he and his fireman sprang to the ground, each armed with a pistol. They saw a negro man run down the track, and gave pursuit. The negro soon came up with two others, and wheeling around he fired at tho engineer and fireman, who forthwith returned the fire. Some six or seven shots were exchanged and the negroes fled. Engineer Lanier says that he does not know whether or not either of the liegres were hit. He says, however, that he knows the negro who threw the spike, and that he will lie arrested and receive the full penalty of tho law. Several attempts have been made to wreck trains on this road, and great vigilance shonlil bo exercised in endeavoring to arrest the guiity ones and bring them to justice. Sam Thomas, the negro caught under the curbing of the well near MilledgeviUe Thursday, died a most horrible death. The wooden curbing, in falling, caught Thomas in such close quarters that he was obliged to stoop over and had no use of himself at all. His crying and piteous prayers for help touched the most callous heart. Inch at a time he felt the water rising, and frequent ly yelled to those above him telling them how much the water had risen. Finally’ almost overcome from suffocation, cold and anxiety, he cried out: “If you don’t reach me quick Jam gone. The water is now up to my chin.” This exclamation was fol lowed by a gurgling noise, and the pioor negro w- left in a watery grave. It was impossible to reach him, and he will be left there until his final sum mons. King Champion went in the same well Friday and had a miraculous escape from the same fate. Ho went down in a bucket, end on reaching the jioiiit where the curbing caved he kicked np a rock from the side of the well, loosing the rock curb ing above, which began falling. Mr. Champion, through almost sui>orhuman power, pulled himself to the top of the well by the rope. The bucket was caught in the well by the falling rock, and was covered from view while Sir. Champion was climb ing tho rop*. Mr. Champion received pain ful injuries from the failing rock. etc., but nothing serious. The well is 60 feet deep, uud Mr. Champion climbed the rope 40 feet.

At Vernon the Recorder of Deeds has re corded over 80,000 deeds of land of the St. Andrews Bay syndicate alone. The posi tion is now very profitable and will doubt less be sought after by some. The Episcopal Council at Gainesville fin ished its work Friday afternoon and ad journed sine die. The next session will be held in Jacksonville, but a special session will bo held in Tallahassee in February next. The drawback to the town of Dade City, caused by claims to several valuable tracts of land lying in town, has been removed. Property owners have secured quit claim deeds, which places the lands in good con dition. During the past -Season there were nearly 5,000 arrivals at the Peninsular Hotel in Tavares.

He was verv wealthy and left a nephew over 83,000,000. The railroad meeting in the court house at Brooksville, Saturday, was pretty well attended and additional subscriptions amounting to over SSOO were raised. The prospect of raising tho total amount required is not encouraging. G. N. Shepard, of St. Augustine, has a round skin of what he called the black shouldered kite, a rare bird, and never seen but once in a life time. He has sent it on to the Smithsonian Institute for identifica tion. The bird was killed down near Marco.

She grabbed it by the nock and put it in a box for tho night. It was a female, with seven or eight young ones in its pouch. A number of the finest shad have been taken in lamoilia Lake recently. Shad in this lake is something of a curiosity, and their presence is explained by the fact that Ooklockonee river overflows into the lake. The government stocked Ooklockonee with shad some time ago, and it is from this work that the Waltons, of Jamonia, are reaping their harvest. It was rumored upon tho streets of Or lando, Tuesday, that Capt. C. E.

Mr. Warrender says ho was robbed of $9O while under the influence of the gas, and thinks his room was entered and the gas turned on by the burglar. Fashion Notes. Pale drab is the popular color for dress ing tailor suits. Black surah is the proper silk for half mourning frocks. The fashionable handkerchief is of the color of the costume. Spangles enrich most of the fancy work done with the needle. Cream laces trim poppy red India or Cbiua silks very tastefully. Green velvet dog collars are fashionably worn with black lace gowns. Full soft drapery over shoulders and bust is seen in all the light lace, lawn and gauze fabrics. Lawn dresses are made with much-fes tooned overskirts bordered with Valen ciennes. Drab and mauve are found to lie a good combination in a dress street toilet or for carriage wear. Embroidered and beaded tulles are used for tIJB full vests that are so becoming to slender figures. Satins are going out of favor, and, there fore, are very cheap, but they make lovely underdresses for lace frocks. The coat sleeve is modified. It is made looser above the elbow, and at the inner, not the outer, seam at the wrist. Bustles of steel hoops are covered with white or scarlet English morocco, cut out in scallops and stitched in rows. ii i e 1.11.- I*l .1. 1 - LI- —1 - Broad bands of white stitching on black kid gloves are de rigeur with white and block toilets of high ceremony. The burnouse shawl drapery and the jabot folds are the favorite arrangement for the back of the skirts of spring dresses. Heliotrope cashmere gowns are draped over brown velvet, and the leg o’ mutton sleeves have the deep cuffs of the same vel vet. The popular long apron draperies are those pleated into the belt or waist line and falling in long folds in front of the side panels, thereby increasing the slenderness of the figure. White or cream pearl picot or feather edged ribbon is the inside pleating preferred for the sleeves and collars of dressy frocks this spring. Silk embroidered handkerchiefs are being made into bonnets, with the four corners standing np like ears, two on either side, one put a little lower than the other. The Langtry bustle, which folds up when the wearer leans back against nnything and returns to its shape w hen relieved of the pressure, is the correct dress improver. Heliotrope is undoubtedly the color of the season. There are ten different shades. Four of them are called “anemone,” two reddish shades “plum” and the darkest “dahlia.” Plain linen collars and cuffs are in much demand now. They arc quite taking the place of the perishable “frills” women have worn so much, and they are certainly much neater looking. “Bengaline," in small reps, is a novelty in summer siiks. and is of very light weight. It will be made up with the same materials in stripes or chocks, or with cashmere of the prevailing color. A hat for a little girl is of black Miian straw with two bands of narrow Picot rib bon about the crown of a dark blue and heliotrope shade, with high bunched loops of the same in front. A pretty gown lately seen was of fawn colored cashmere, the waist of tho polonaise laid entirely’ in very fine tucks. The sleeves were tucked to the elbow and below that to the wrist, leaving at the elbow a puff The polonaise effect was somewhat concealed by soft sashes about the hips, knotted on the tournure. Sailor straw hats will be popular again this summer, but with a different trimming. The brims are wider and streighter. and those of fine straw are best liked. The.se have a broad band alxiut the crown, long stiff loop* of ribbon a little to the loft ana pointing forward, with two long narrow wings set on in the same manner. At a ball given bv the Jockey Club to the prettiest women in Laris at the Hotel Cen tennial, Mile. Jane Grantor wore a most deliciously devised evening wrap composed of embroil lor lew in pale blue with crystal beads and bugles on a silver net ground work. finished with ruffles of silver lace and lined throughout with pale blue silk. it is well to remember that with plain hanging, tue ■ ed or plicated skirts, especially on summer dresses of a naturally clinging limp nature, should tie worn unkerskirts of silk, organdie, or fine linen lawn which has a rather stiff dressing, upxni which the airy fabric composing the ground should be mounted. The hem of the skirt proper should fall over a narrow “depauant. very finely pleated, and set at the edge of the un derskirt. This throws out the loot of the dress skirt and keeps it away for the feet, and also gives it a more graceful appear ance. A Medical Phenomenon. From the Texas Siftings. “Hellos. Wiggles worth!' exclaimed an Austin man, meeting an aequaintanm on the avenue; “your are as gray aa a rat. What's the matter with you?" “it's terrible, isn't it? List night I ex perienced a severe fright, and my Imir turned to Its present silvery hue immediately." A few days after this tho Austin man again encountered Wigglcsivorth wearing beautiful, resplendent, coal black locks. ' Why, Wlgglesworth, what's the meaning of this? The lost time we met your hair was snow white; now it is dark ns the raven's wing." "Yes; you so" my hair turned gray from sud den fright. Yesterday a man paid me sl* he had Limi owing me for a long time, and tho pleasurable emotions were so violent that they turned it iißck again to Its original color.” Phillips' Digestible Cocoa Is more delicious in taut* and aroma, and, by the process it i pirjxired, is rendered more nourishing and more easily digested than any other preparation of cocoa or chocolate.
