YOUNG MEN WHO SUCCEED
aO-AT-IT-NESS AND STICK-TO-IT
IVENESS SURE TO WIN.
Rev. J. W. Rogan’s Talks to Young Men
on How to Attain Suceese—The Dif
ference Between Success and Failure
—The Key to Prosperity-The Great
Apostle’s Motto, “This One Thing I
Do"- Men Who Succeed and Fail.
P.ev. J. W. Rogan delivered the third of
his series of talks to young men at the First
Presbyterian church last night. His sub
ject was, ‘’Success, and How to Attain It. '
His text was from 11. Chronicles, xxxi.. ‘£l:
‘‘Anil every work that he liegan he did it
with all his heart, and prospered.”
Mr. Rogan began by saying that there is
a universal desire in the hearts of all men
to succeed, but only a few attain the highest
success, and very few know what roul suc
cess is. All is not gold that glitters, so ail
is not success that is labeled by that
name. The French have an aphorism that
“Nothing succeeds like success.” That
is true in one sense, but on the other hand
it is often true that nothing fails like suc
cess. and nothing succeeds like failure. As
an illustration: If. after Alexander had sub
dued all Greece, and been elected General
issimo of its armies, he had met a defeat, his
life’s sun might not have gone down amid
the clouds of darkness that attended its
SUCCESS A XI) FAILURE.
If a man is engaged in a business that, is
dishonoring God and is hurtful to his hu
manity and injurious to his manhood,
though the world may wi-ite after his name
in gilded letters the iword "Success," God
will write after it in characters of the black
est dye the word “Failure,” and all the
angels and all the good of earth will cry,
Mr. Rogan said that he has no newly dis
covered short read to success. He only
wanted to impress upon thovoung men.what
they must do to succeed. The words in the
text “with all his heart” arc the key to pros
perity and the rule by which almost any on"
may reap success. Young men should de
termine early what, they want to do. Too
many let their barks drift toward any ]>ort,
without giving them direction. In other
words, they do not moke a choice of a voca
tion, while"others, though they see a mark
toward which they aim, do not feel certain
that it is just the one they want to hit.
They are like the Irishman who saw
something moving in the bushes, but did
not know whether it was a deer or a calf,
so he shot to hit, it if it was a deer and miss
it if it was a calf. So there are many in
life who see a business and want to fol
it if it is what they imagine it to lie.

Found Upon a Sofa in the Dining-Room
of His Residence.
Mr. Frederick W. B. Woolhopter
was found dead in the dining-room
of his residence on Bolton
street yesterday morning. He complained
several days ago of feeling unwell, but
seemed to have recovered, and Saturday
night was in excellent spirits. He sat up
until quite late reading and conversing with
About 2 o’clock yesterday morning, after
having retired, he went to her room and said
that he felt very nervous and unwell, but
thought that he would feel !**tter soon, and
returned to his own aparinient. He after
wards partly dressed himself and went down
stairs to the dining room and lay down on
a sofa, having fist thrown bark the folding
doore opening into the parlors to allow the
breeze to blow through the rooms.
When his mother entered the dining
room about 8 o'clock he was lying on the
sofa dead. Rev. and Mrs. A. M. Wynn,
who live in the adjoining house, were called
in and with the assistance of other friends
who arrived shortly afterwards endeavored
to administer some simple restoratives, but
life was extinct and had been for at least an
hour. Drs. Schley, Myers and Coldiug
arrived soon afterward, hut they of course
could do nothing.
Death, in the opinion of the phyßieians,
resulted from heart disease or congestion
of the brain. An official inquiry was
deemed unnecessary. Death came upon
him suddenly, and the struggle must have
been very brief. There were no marks of
anguish on his face, which was calm and
placid, Mr. Woolhopter's father died in
almost the same manner as his son at the
office of Dr. King in 1872.
Mr. Woolhopter has been long and
favorably known in the business circles of
Savannah. For many years he was book
keeper and cashier for Alexander & Russell
and their successor, Alexander & Maxwell,
and W. E. Alexander & Hon. He remained
with the latter firm until Mr. Alexander's
retirement from business. He was a
brother-in-law of Mr. Marion Erwin,
Clerk of the United States District
Court, and of Asbury Potter, of Augusta.
He was unmarried, and leaves also an un
married sister. He had devoted his life to
his mother and sisters, whom be seemed to
cherish with more than the love of a son
and brother. His funeral will take place
from the family residence at 10 o'clock this

While Learning to Swim.
Herman Ludemann, a young German

remained in the boat and finally undressed
and crawled over the side of the boat into

to the boat's stern and played with the dogs,
who swam around him. After trying
awhile he thought he could swim to the

He at once surmised that the young man
had been drowned and came across the river
and notified Mr. Entelman. A search was
begun and several parties began diving for
the body. Late in the afternoon Mr. John
Hearn brought it to the surface
a short distance from where the boat wu-s
tied. Justice M. F. Molina was notified of
the drowning and the recovery of the body.
He at once directed the parties to Coroner
Dixon, who, after hearing the facts, deemed
an inquest unnecessary, there being no
doubt that the young man's drowning was
accidental. The body was removed to the

COFFEE ON A BIG BOOM.
Less Profit for Boarding-House
Keepers-Savannah's Coffee Trade.
The recent rapid and heavy advances in
the price of coffee are attracting widespread
attention, and it is evident, as stated in the
Morni.no News yesterday, that the bean is
in the hands of speculators. In controlling
markets there has been considerable activity
during several weeks past. It has had
a verv depressing effect on the loos! market,
and dealers say that buyers are taking very
In years gone l>v Savannah handled more
coffee than any (icrt south of Baltimore
except New Orleans, but there has been
a big falling off in receipts, due
to the fact that importers here
have stopped importing, owing to the rigid
quarantine imposed on vessels from P.io
Janiero. There has not been a single cargo
imported during the past year. The receijits
for the year up to April 1 were only 23,(59
bags, against 50.834 bags in 1885, showing a
decrease of more than one-half from the
amount imported two years ago. The re
ceipts since April 1 are 2,784 bags.
Tlic rise in coffee began really about nine
months ago, since which time it has ad
vanced steadily. In the past tew weeks the
advance in values has been enormous. Last
September a bag of prime coffee was worth
813. To-day it could not be duplicated
short of 830 in this market.
The lugh price of the bean is not without
its effect and the average boarding house
keeper looks at this necessaiy article tor the
breakfast table as worth its "weight in gold,
at least some boarders are complaining and
say that the strength of their favorite
beverage is now on a par with Sunday
school ana circus lemonade. The average
housewife is greatly distressed when sue
finds that she is compelled to pay twice the
amount jier t&und that she paid a year ago.
On Saturday the New York market was
still tending up. though it had a quieter
tone. The fact that a year ago 89,000 would
buy 1,000 bags of coffee, and that the same
quantity will now cost $98,000, tells the story
as to the extent of the advance
The coffee trade of Savannah last year
represented over ?7(K3,000 —very nearly
three-quarters of a million. The consump
tion in the city is very large, as it is in all
Southern cities, and the advance means a
good deal to the coffee drinkers. The prin
ciple theory as to the cause of the advance
is speculation. Another theory is a short
crop because of failure in the producing
MERCURY CLIMBING UP.
The Hot Weather Putting in an Un
usually Early Appearance.
June was ushered in by weather that gives
promise of a warmer summer than has been
experienced here for several years. The
mercury has not risen inordinately high,
but the hot days have begun earlier than
usual, and so far the temperature for the
month has been above normal. On Friday
the mean temperature for the day was 81’
and on Saturday it was 80.3 , while the
normal for June 3 for fifteen years past is
only 78.3% and for June 4 78°. In Jun# of
last year there were eleven days hotter than
Saturday, but the-first of these days was
not until June 9. The hottest day of June
last year was the 17th, when the maximum
was 93 . Saturday it was 92" and Friday
Already the maximum has topped 90’
twice this month, while it was above that
mark only five days during the whole of
the month of 1888, but did not reach it
until June 16. The maximum of Friday
was higher than that of the whole of June,
1872, though it was below the records of all
other years since the signal station was
Below is given the highest temperature of
the month of June since 1871. 1871,94’;

1884, 91 : 1885. 05”; 1880. 93’.
These high temperatures, however, were
reached during tho latter part of the month
in almost every instance. Unless there is a
change in the state of the weather they will
be scored early this year, and June 1887
may be the hottest on record.
SATURDAY HALF HOLIDAYS.
The Movement Among Wholesale
Merchants on the Bay.
The Saturday half holiday movement is
being pushed among the wholesale mer
chants of the city, and with an assurance of
success. A petition lias been circulated on
the Bay and has been signed by nearly all
of the leading wholesale firms, who agree to
close at 2 o’clock on Saturdays during June
There is very little shipping
done on Saturdays after 2 o’clock,
and shippers will 'not be at all incon
venienced by the adoption of the system.
It is the custom in Charleston and other
large cities South and North to close at that
hour, anil from the indorsement which the
movement is receiving here there is very
little doubt that it will lie generally adopted.
The system will be started on the Bay on
Saturday. In the meantime a [ictition will
be circulated on Congress street, and an
effort will be made to briug the entire
wholesale trade into the movement bo that
there will lie a general closing up on Satur
Those merchants who have already signed
the petition commend the plan. A large
number of clerks and employes, who are
now required to remain on duty the entire
day, will have the afternoon to' themselves
for needed recreation Tlie movement was
first started with a view to extending the
time of early closing until Sept. 1, but it
was afterwards changed to Aug. 1, as the
slapping for fall trade begins to aomo extent
in that month.
A Light Peach Crop.
The peach crop is considerably earlier
this year tlian usual and the market is sup
plied with the fruit. Advices from the
peach growing counties, however, indicate
a short crop. Mr. L. Putzel’s correspon
dents some of them say t'wt it will not, be
much over half the average vield. From
the present indication* the bulk of the crop
w ill be shipped in the next three weeks.

The little difficulty which occurred at

directory of the Augusta and Chattanooga

line. The contract for building and equip
ping the road from Augusta to Chattanooga
has been made and approved, and the work
of construction will be rapidly pushed. This
will be good news to those along the line,
who look upon the road as ati assurance of
j>rogress and prosperity, and it is but a mat

Chattanooga will be linked with bands of
A New Railroad Deal.
Some time during the past year the bond
holders of the Asheville and Spartanburg
railroad formed themselves into a syndicate
for mutual protection. About 3500,000 in
bonds were issued iu i 883 for the completion
of the road to Asheville, since which time
the bondholders have received no interest
on their investments. Recently overtures
were made to the syndicate looking to the
purchase of the bonds, and it is said that
during the past week the whole amount of
tho bonds have been sold, with the exception
of a few thousand, the owners of which
were unwilling to accept the terns offered
to the syndicate.
The amount of bonds held in Charleston
bv banks and individuals, the Neva and
Courier says, is about *200.000, and the
price obtained is said to have been 45c. on
the dollar. The bonds were sold to the
agent of a Northern syndicate, but are be
lieved to have been purchased for the Rich
mond and Danville Terminal Company.

AT THE BALL AND BAT.
Nashville Plays a Battling Game at
New Orleans and Wins.
New Orleans, June 5. Nashville played
its first game here to-day and captured the
crowd by its fine playing and gentlemanly
behavior. New O-tleans also played a rat
tling game outside of the ragged and listless
work of B'.-ennan and Geiss, who could
have saved the game had tkev tried hard.
What won for Nashville was Maul's terrific
hitting, he making two home runs, one of
which brought in Hogan. The game was
close, exciting and brilliant all the way
through. The fielding of Powell. Firle,
Burks. Puller and Bradley, and Hogan’s
t>a-:r running were the features. Skinner's
umpiring was poor, but hit both sides alike.
The following is the score:
Nashville 01 1010201-6
New Orleans 0 2 0 0 3 0 0 0 o—s
Base hits—Nashville 15. New Orleans 11.
Stolen liases—Nashville 6. New Orleans 3.
Errors- Mrtshville 5, New Orleans 7.

How the Clubs Stand.
Charleston is pushing to the front in the
Southern League. Last week's games ad
vanced the club to third place and only
2-1 (JO of a point below Memphis, which holds
second place. The first four clubs are now
so closely bunched and the teams so evenly
matched that from this time on it is any
body’s race. Memphis has the advantage
this week of playing Birmingham, which is
yet in it its infancy, and will no doubt take

The Strongest Man on Earth.
Prom the Virginia Spectator.
There is a man on the Dar*on river, be
low Dayton, named Angela Cordelia, who
claims to be the strongest man in the world.
He is an Italian, aged 28. and stands 5 feet
10 inches, weighing 108 pounds. His
strength was born with him, for he had no
athletic training. He differs from other men
chiefly in the osseous structure. Although
not of unusual size, his spinal column is
much beyond the ordinary width, and his
’now's and joints are made on a similarly
large and generous scale. He has lifted a
man of 300 pounds with the middle finger
of his right hand. The man stood with one
foot on the floor, his arms outstretched, his
hands grasp'd by two persons, to balance
his bony. Cordelia then stooped, placed the
third finger of his right hand under the
man's foot, and, with scarcely any pefep
tible effort, raised him to the’ height of 4
feet and deposited him on a table near at
hand. Once two powerful men waylaid
Cordelia, with intent to thrash him. but he
seized one in each hand and hammered them
together until life was nearly knocked out
Age Improves All Things.
Prom the Fort Gaines Star.
George Anderson, a stately and dignified
Othello, over whose classic brow the snows
of sixteen dreary winter have wasted their
fury, and Hattie Carter, a coy and blushing
maiden who has seen tl loveiy flowers blos
som into fragrant beauty for forty-five gor
geous spring times, were united in the brit
tle ties of wedded infelicity last week, in the
front yard of Mr. Louis Crozier.
This was truly a union- of love on the part
of the chocolate-hued damsel, for George
wooed her untrammeled by any other in
ducement to win her young, confiding heart
than those suggested by a well develop'd
physique, rendered tensely muscular by oft
repeated pulls on the bell line guiding some
refractory mule across a cotton patch.
The love-smitten lassie came to her future
liege lord, attended only by her good looks,
and a small dowry,'consisting of fifteen
children, possibly may have influenced, to
some extent, the adoration of the chival
