A man by the name of Ward, hailing
from Norwood, attempted suicide at Greens
boro, Tuesday evening. When discovered
he was lying on Main street in a profound
stupor. He was carried to the “Corry
House” and physicians were summoned who
succeeded in arousing him to consciousness.
When questioned he acknowledged to have
taken 120 grains of hydrate of chloral. He
said he came to this iKiint with the deliber
ate intention of ending his existence. He
gave as a cause for the rash act financial
embarrassment. He is said to have been in
the asylum in time past.
The Atlanta branch of the Salvation
Army is arranging for a big time this week.
Cherokee Sam, the saved Indian, in his
buckskin costume, Col. Light and the cru
sade band will arrive soon and give a boom
to the meetings, which will be held nightly
at the barracks, on West Alabama street.
Dodgers are being scattered about the
streets containing the announcement of the
services, and the statement that, “silver
offerings will be taken at the door to avoid
a break in the meetings.” On Sunday
afternoon at 4 o’clock a great salvation bap
tism will be conducted at Lynch’s rock
quarry by Col. Light. We are glad to thus
have our sister city so well taken care of.
It was learned that the firm of C. J. Me-
Oampbell & Cos., of Chicago, had effected a
lease upon the room occupied by Phelan's
Cotton and Produce Exchange, Atlanta,
and would open a similar business there
within a few days. Mr. Phelan received a
dispatch from the parties inquiring as to
whether or not the exchange fixtures were
for sale*, and at what price. He considered
that this is a matter for his creditors to pass
iqion. as they are to receive the proceeds,
and submitted the question to them at the
meeting. It is also probable that this same
firm will succeed Mr. Phelan at Montgom
ery, Selma. Birmingham, Savannah and
Charlotte, t hough this has not yet been de
cided upon. At all events Atlanta will soon
liave another full-fledged bucket shop.
The Georgia Roller Mills, of Athens,
owned by Taylor Bros., started up on
Monday lost, and are working like a charm.
Mr. Hugh N. Taylor carried a sample of his
meal around town and showed it to the mer
chants, and the consequence was that they
all gave him large orders. In fact, as one
merchant remarked, it was by far the best
meal seen in Athens in years. It is as white
as the driven snow, ground ns round as shot,
and is as pure as can be. Nothing but the
finest Missouri red-cob corn is used, and be
fore subjected to the rollers every faulty
grain or foreign substance is removod by the
most improved machinery. They liave a
guaranteed capacity of 1,250 bushels per
day. It is undoubtedly one of the largest
and finest mills in the South, and the meal
ground there will take the country.

The negro arrested and placed in the
Clarksville jail, charged with the murder of
Mr. Echols, at Cornelia Junction, has con
fessed his crime. He says that the deceased
and himself wore both intimate with a mar
ried white woman living near the defiot,
and they had a difficulty about her, that re
sulted in Echols driving the negro from the
house. This rankled Edward’s heart nwl he
swore to lie avenged. On the the night of
the murder he saw >lr. Echols start for the
house of his mistress, and waylaid him
on the side of the railroad, at a place where

About D o'clock Echols, on his return home,

unconscious of danger, and with the kisses
of the depraved creature fresh on his lips,
walked into the trap. Edwards raised his
pistol and tired, the first shot taking effect.
This was quickly followed by four other
shots, a’id not satisfied with tins, seized his
rival, and dragging him into tho woods,

that is the thorough manner in which they
are having the city cleaned up. Men and
wagons have been busy all the weekcutting
down weeds, raking up old rubbish, burn
ing it up, etc. If the good work toes on
until the city is thoroughly cleaned there
may he no fear of sickness on the part of
any one during the summer. Don l let it
stop, gentlemen, until every cornel is ex
amined and found clean. See that disin
fectants are freely used, the back yards and
all other hidden hooks thorotighly cleansed,
and there may be no fear of sickness.”

of fire the water will lie forced directly into
the mains by a million gallon pump of latest
design, which will furnish ample pressure.
Anew pump-house will be constructed, and
in it wall be placed anew boiler and tils new
pumps. Mr. Rand expects to have the new
system in working order by early fall, and,
to secure this end, worn will begin at an

one Of the men turned it upon end so that
it would be convenient to check when the
owner came and identified it. The man
lifted it up hastily and allowed it to drop
over on its end suddenly, and as it fell a
loud report as of the explosion of a pistol
was heard. All looked in the direction of
the) trunk, and as they did ,so
they saw a dense black smoke
pouring out of every crack. They did not
hold a i-ensultatioh or make an examina
tion. It suddenly flashed upon the minds
of all that the trunk was loaded with dyna
mite, and with one accord all hands set out
in every direction, moving as they never
moved before, for they expected every mo
ment to be senbfiyiug through the air unle'-s
they got out of the range of the dynamite
before the grand explosion took place. After
remaining away some minutes they began
to venture cautiously back to the baggage
room, when the trunk was carefully lifted
and stowed away in the baggage car, after
which all hands felt relieved, but not en
tirely until the train pulled out of the depot
and "reached the junction in Lavilla. They
then breathed easy.
