They were seized four milas from Clarksville, in Habersham county, and were returned to Gainesville Wednesday. They were traveling along in the big road in the day time when dis covered. Ayres, when searched, had two saws hidden ill his clothing. One was sewed in the back of his vest, and the other in the front lappel of his pants. It is supposed these were the tools It# used in making his escape. 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 commencement exercises were largely attended. 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 lie knew that that the deceased must (wuis. About D o'clock Echols, on his return home, jiassed the spot where his foe lay in wait for for him, with murder in his heart and a loaded pistol iu his hand. The victim was 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, proceeded to deli tierately pound his head to pieces witii tho bludgeon found near the scene of the murder. It was r cruel and dastardly deed. The miserable woman that caused tilts tragedy has fled the neighbor hood, and is thought to lie concerned in the murder. FLORIDA. Bartow is to have a steam laundry.

Sanford Journal: Mr. Max Myerson re turned from New York Thursday afternoon His trip did not. result in the bringing back of C. P. Johnson, who was arposted ui that city some ten days ago on a telegram from Marshal Wheeler, of Sanford. Legal steps were taken which Mr. Myerson could not overcome, and Johnson will return when his own sweet will dictates. He. says he will be in Sanford in a short while. We will see. The building of the Sanford Catholic church has been awarded to W. T. Cotter, of that place, who will at once take steps to move the needed material oil the church lots.

He has commenced to take up the subscrip tions, and has met every where with hearty responses. The closing exercises of the Tampa graded sshool, took place last Friday night at the Opera House, in the presence of one of the largest crowds ever gathered together in Tampa—the spacious hall being taxed to its utmost to hold the relatives, friends and others who were present. In the rear of the stage were the mottoes formed in the ever green, “Strive to be wise.” while just back of the footlights hundreds of beautiful bo quets were arranged, sent in by the friends and admirers of tne young ladies. The ex ercises were very interesting. The Florida State Pharmaceutical Asso ciation effected a permanent organization at Jacksonville, Thursday night, by the elec tion of the following officers, viz: Presi dent. Dr. H.

St. Augustine Press: John Blake, who has been engaged in raking over the ruins of the Bt. Augustine fire for several weeks, has made many valuable recoveries. The latest was on Tuesday morning, when he found a Indy’s brooch, set with twenty brilliant diamonds. This was a small fortune itself. It was promptly turned over to Capt. Vail, who knows the owner. Wince he began his operations Mr. Bioko has discovered and t linn'll over jewelry and watches amounting in value to upwards of $2f1,"00, and vet probably not one-quarter of whut was lost will ever be found so as to be recognizable. Tampa Jon null: One of the most brutal and bar ha rous acts we ever knew to lie per petrated was committed Sunday night by a man named Garner, a Justice of the Peace, who resides in Ybor City. It seems that Garner bought ahtrseu few days ago—a poor, broken-down animal—and in riding him out of town he didn’t step lively enough to suit this merciless driver, who unjolntnl the animal's fret and stabix-d it in several places, and left the horse by the roadside to oi . wh ire ;!••• poor b art lay suffering until Sunday night. A man who’would willfully injure or maltreat a (>oor, dumb brute in worse than inhuman; he is a dastard and a fiend, and swift punishment should tie metis) out to him for the perpetration of such an atrocious deed. At the regular meeting of the Orange City Council Monday evening, C. F. Austin was elected City Attorney and Dr. 11. S. Affgro City Physician. After the Council meeting, the Board of Health met and or ganized and appointed a committed, con- sisting of the Mayor and City Physician, to confer with the business men of the town and report as to the sentiment in regard t<) establishing a quarantine. This committee reported at n late meeting of the hoard that it was the almost universal wish that a quarantine be declaixvl, which was accord ingly done. The Mayor was authorized to apixiint as many health officers as ho deemed necessary. The same eommitte* was instructed to report a set of rules an! regulations to govern the lioard, and defiue the fines, penalties, etc. The cleaning-up idea lias evidently struck every town in South Florida, brought, about,, no doubt by the fever in Key West. On this subject the Orlando Sentinel temarks: “The Sentinel can certainly complitient the oft-abused City Council upon one thing, and 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.” The Sanford Water Works Conpany have accepted the franchise granted them by the City Council several months ago. Mr. F. H. Rand, of the Florida Land and Colonization Company, has let the contract to Maj. Louis McLain for the construction of a reservoir fifty feet in diameter and from eighteen to twenty-four feet deep, on the grounds of the company, at the pump house. This reservoir will lie constructed of brick and cement, and will lie perfectly water-tight. This huge cistern will be supplied from the water works lake, two miles from Sanford, and from it the water will be pumped into the tanks, which will be kept full all the time. The tanks will be used only for domestic supply, and in case 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 early day. One of the completest bams for the Flor ida climate has just boon completed for H. G, Hubbai-d, of Crescent City. The lower part is boarded while the upper part is lat ticed, the roof extending out over all about three feet. The carriage, feed and harness rooms and hay loft have close floors, while the stable part is outside, and so arranged as to give the animals plenty of room with out need of their being haltered in their various places. The samo gentleman is hav ing a large two-story and a half man sard roof (Queen Anne style) frame building erected on the same prem ises. The timbers are unusually large, and the house will be, without doubt, one of the best built and most complete in all its appointments of any in Putnam county. Its cost will approximate $15,000. When this building is completed, Mr. Hubbard’s place will well be worth a visit from all Florida tourists. He has nearly every sort of fruit, shrub and flower that can be grown in the State—some very rare plants from foreign climes, obtained at great ex pense, and all artistically planted out, with meandering walks, pools, waterfalls and shady bowers. Times-Union: Air. Joe Burroughs, bag gage mastei - of the Savannah, Florida anil Western railroad, and his assistants, were thoroughly frightened Wednesday after noon. During the day a large iron-bound t runk had been left on the platform near the baggage-rooin to be checked, and a short time.before the time for the train to leave 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. Alexander vs. Kaiskb is a case now before a Massachusetts court. BROWN’S IRON BITTERS.
