Madison Madisonian : The revival at the

the good men who an; working so faithfully
for the welfare of others will yet bo re

and intelligence of our people at least, that
they are attending church better of late.

The quiet little town of Quitman was con
siderably excited on Tuesday morning last,,
about 10 o'clock, when several of the most
prominent ladies of the town came from the
meeting which was iu progress at the
Methodist church, and entering Joyce's and
Ho son's Ixirrooms offered up sliort but
easiest prayers in each of the places. To

Dalton Citizen: As we have frequent
ly said, the way to build a solid city,
is uiion the solid foundation of
manufactures. We have been most
favorably impressed with another industry,
for which this place is peculiarly adapted, by
a visit to the warehouse of Judge Van Ness.
He has some samples of veneers, cut on the
new system of rotary cutting, from a pine
log sent by him to a firm near Cleveland,
O. The veneers are about four feet wide,
and some no thicker than paper and many
yards in length. A sample of gum shown
as was cut from a roll measuring Six feet
wide and a mile and a quarter long. To
enumerate the uses to which this material
is adapted would occupy more space than
we could well afford in this issue.
The sale is announced of the old stable lot
on the corner of Broad and Jefferson streets,
Thomasville. A little over one year ago it
was sold bv Mr. McLendon to Mr. Stever
man for $5,750. A few days ago this same
piece of property, without a dollar’s worth
of improvement" was sold for $7,500. The
purchaser was Mr. Masury, of New York,
who recently purchased the Blackshear
place. This silences all croakei-s about
Thomasvilie’s upward tendency, for when
such men as Mr. Masuiy put out $39,000 in
one piece of property, and immediately in
vest $7,000 in another. U(X>n which it is not
improliable that he will put a handsome im
frovement, it speaks well for the future.

Doc Stubbs poured a load of No. 0 shot
into the left arm and side of Bob Hughes
from the muzzle of a double-barrel suot
gun late last Saturday afternoon, inflicting
several very painful, though not dangerous
wounds. Both men are negroes. Both of
them were in Eastman Saturday, and to
gether they started for their homes over
Gum Swamp about 5 o’clock in the after
noon. When about three miles from town
Stubbs commenced abusing Hughes atxmt
something he had said about his (Bob’s)
wife, and concluded by telling him that if
he didn’ retract he would kill him. Hughes
refused to take back what he had said, out,
to the contrary, repeated the statement with
emphasis, swore that it was true, and de
clared that he would die by it, whereupon
Stubbs shot him as above stated.
At Americas Wednesday, as little Charlie
Cobb was passing Chapman’s restaurant on
Lamar street , he was fiercely attacked by a
setter dog, who rushed out of the door and
threw the cliild to the ground, biting it
badly, once in the side and again in the
just over the heart. The little fellow
was carried into the drug store next door
and his injuries attended to, which, while
very painful, are not considered serious, as
the dog was not thought to be mad. The
same dog bit a little negro Tuesday morn
ing, but not as badly as he did the little l>oy
later on. Mr. Chapman values the dog
highly, and asked to tie allowed to send him
home instead of killing him. This favor
was granted him, but the police were in
stnieted to shoot him should ne ever appear
on the streets of the city again.

The advantage of Palatka as a distribut
ing point for freights is fully recognized and
appreciated by the railroads, as is proven by
the fact that nearly every road in South

delivered there by schooners. The Orange
Belt railway, which is to run from Monroe,
on the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West
railway, to Point Pinellas, below Tampa,
has already arranged for the shipment of
twenty cargoes of iron via Palatka. These
twenty schooners will arrive and discharge
their cargoes during the summer, and the
handling of this heavy freight will require
the services of a large force of hands.

neck and hands, and his head very badly
beaten up, apparently with the butt of a pis
tol. The jailer was absent when the prisoner
arrived, and the janitor did not seek to make
any investigation. Everybody who saw the
case is indignant at the apparently brutal
manner in which the prisoner, who is not a
desperado, had been treated, and the ease is
certainly worthy of an official investigation.
The jail physician was sent for to examine
the prisoner’s wounds, some of which are
said to be quite serious.

shortly. Applications have lieen received
for stock to the amount of over $125,000, but
the capital will not be increased to more
