Bradstreet's reports Augusta real estate sales for the first five months of ISB7 at $128,300 against $104,500 for the same pe riod last year. A rattlesnake was killed near Sawyer's Mill, Stewart county, a few days ago whose caudal appendage was adorned witn sixteen, rattles and a collar button. There seems to boa universal disposition among the tax-payers of Marshalville to build a bridge across Flint river at the up per ferry by the town authorities. There are eleven men, and perhaps more. In Marion county who are over SO years of *ge. Out of this number there are three over 80, seven over 85, and one 91 years okl. The Enqvirer claims that Columbus has brighter future than any other city in Georgia. The editor of the Encpiirer probably has not been reading up on Savan nah statistics recently. Marshall vide Timex: When the down freight on Wednesday came to a halt at this place the engineer discovered he was minus Bis cab, and went back to look after it. It was found a few miles this side of Fort Valley. Mark Silvers is having plans drawn for an elegant and commodious edifice to be constructed in Augusta on the corner of Washington and Broad streets. It will surpass all others in the city for beauty and elegance. Washington Chronicle: Judge Seay bound over a negro Thursday evening for cruelty to animals. The negro was hauling a load of wood to town with some oxen, and seems to have beat one badly. The ox lied on the street. On the Fourth of July the Augusta Land lieague will continue their excellent custom of giving a grand picnic at the platz. Everything necessary to the pleasure and comfort of those present will be secured and a glorious time is anticipated. Macon is making extensive preparations to entertain the people of Jasper and Jones counties, who are expected to go down the Covington and Macon railroad on a big ex cursion in a few days. Macon will do her best to make then- visit a pleasant one. The New Era says that “the girls of Tal bot ton are growing flnel v,” while it has only this for the boys: ‘‘What to do with the small boy is the great problem.” The boys should retaliate by catching the editor’s office cat and tying a tin can to its tail. The need of a route agent is badly felt along the line of the Americus, Preston and Lumpkin. Letters and other mail matter sent from Lumpkin to Richland and Pres ton has to be carried by those stations on to Americus, and then distributed and sent back on the return train. Capt. Jack Cartledge, with the city chain gang, has just completed the big task of thoroughly cleaning out Crawfish ditch, one of the biggest institutions of the kind in Augusta. The sewer extends through the entire southern portion of the city, and is dow in excellent condition. It seems that the mission of the little brown jug is never entirely completed. ‘‘Saturday several wagon loads of them were driven into the city from Crawford county,” says the Americus Recorder, “and were quickly disposed of to those of our merchants who handle the ardent.” Gibson Enterprise: Col. James Staple ton, of Stapleton, has several bales of cot ton, it is said, that he has kept ever since the war. He says he can keep cotton easier than he can money, and as the staple ceased long ago to lose in weight he may be said to be saving as much money as the cotton is worth. Hands were at work Sunday building a < -offer dam at the Augusta factory in order to work upon the gates. Others were also seen cleaning out the race leading to the cotton seed null These are cases where the ox was in the mire. In both instance*! the work had to be done while the water was ■but off, which could not be done during the week. Work has been suspended in what is known as the “bid mill,” of the Augusta Factory, and some 135 looms are idle, the cause of suspension being the putting in of new water wheels, the wear and tear of years preventing the old ones from being able to move the machinery with sufficient force. It is thought the work will occupy a considerable time. Charlie Walsh made things lively in Au gusta for a while Sunday evening. Being under the influence of liquor, he proceeded to demolish the furniture and smash up the bouse utensils. His wife endeavored for some time to stay the demonstration, when he turned upon her and struck her. This lieing too much, she ran for a policeman, End officer Kent arrested and locked him up. The Daily Gaz&lte, of Augusta, miule its appearance on (Sunday and is a well-edited and newsy sheet. It takes the United Press dispatches and doubtless will be a power for Augusta's good. Its advertising is fair indeed to commence w ith and the enterprise starts off under favorable auspices. The Mousing News extends the kindliest greet ing to the Gazette, and wishes it a long life. Marshall ville Times: On Tuesday, near Oglethorpe, a horrible death occurred by the burning of a little 3-year-old negro child of Ike and Amie Higgins. The child "as left with an older brother, who built a fire to oook dinner, and left for a little while to gather some berries, and on bis return found the child burning, gave the alarm, but no relief could be rendered. The child died in half on hour. During the past few weeks Griffin has been blessed with a religious revival, such as she has not experienced in years. The ser vants of God have laliorod harrl and earnest ly while Christians huve never done such faithful tribute before. First came the Bap tist revival, lasting four or live weeks, dur ing which time some sixty souls were brought to Christ. During the past three weeks tho gospel tent lias been the scene of splendid meetings, and at which much good has been accomplished. W\ C. Boggan, of Rome, who took fifteen grains of morphine Friday, is improving. Only by the faithfulness of tho attending physicians was his life saved. All effects of the morphine have paused off. He is sittiijg up, though still weak. His domestic rela tions were of the pleasantest character. Rome say that since the Ham Jones meet ings and tho opening of tho prohibition Issue* there lias seemedtohen greattrouble on hi* mind, but nothing can lie definitely affirmed a> tbe cause of the act. The meeting of the Richmond Uusatn, Augusta, to hear the final report of tbe bar lieoue committee was held Tuesday. The Hussars ai-e making grand arrangements for one of their old time frolics on Thursday. “There is one thing certain,” says tbe Chronicle, “the Hussars never forget their lady friends, and we were shown at Dav, Tunnahili & Co.'s a beautiful prize for tie ladies to contend for. Capt. Clark informs us that every man will be out for inspection Thursday morning, and the Hussars will re vive once more the good okl days.” Harrison English, a negro cripple, was locked up Sunday afternoon at Atlanta charged with assault with intent to murder. A negro named Howard Taylor was quietly sleepmg on a Decatur street sidewalk that afternoon, when English crept up to him with a razor in his baud and attacked him with it, cutting a terrible gash in his right leg. English says that he cut the man be cause he is always abusing and fighting him. English is a paralytic and said to be idiotic. The wound which he inflicted upon Taylor is very painful, but hardly dangerous. Alapaha Star: During the revival in the Methodist church at this place an old and very practical member was called onjto prav. That morning he saw several of his neigh bors. armed with fishing poles, pass his place on their way to the river. This furnished him a theme and he prayed about as fol lows: “Oh, Lord, I saw several of my friends this morning going down into theLaphaw swamp fishing instead of coming to church. Good Lord, send hornets and wasps and yellow-jackets and horse flies and yellow flies and redbugs, and make them sting them and bite them till they are forced to flee from the swamp and seek shelter in the church.” An altercation between two boys, Outland and Cross, at the Sandersville and Augusta depot Sunday afternoon, came near culmi nating seriously. Cross cursed a smaller bov than himself, who was on the grounds, ap- E lying an objectionable epithet. Outland earing of it came up ftnd asked Cross if it was true, which he acknowledges! with em phasis. Outland struck him with his fist, when Crose drew a knife, which was con cealed up his sleeve and began cutting Out land, who drew his pistol and fired once at Cross. Friends intervened anil prevented further trouble. Outland is cut badly in three places, but the wounds are not consid ered dangerous. About 7 o’clock Monday evening quite a little excitement was created on Broad street, Augusta. The gale of wind that was so weleomely received Monday afternoon, blew down the electric light wire that ran across from the Augusta Hotel. The wire fell tow ard a dray belonging to John Dosch er. The drayman. Green Cook, to keep it. from striking his mule, caught the wire, and was keeled from his mule to tbe ground senseless. He touched it with one hand* only, hence his escape from more serious injury. The wire ‘touched the mule, which ran away, but was soon corailed. Immediately after a horse being driven up the street touched the wire with his foot, re ceiving a shock and running away. Then a dog came in contact with tne wire, receiv ing a severe shock which drove him mail. It bite heat on the ground marked where the wire was stretched. The excitement was as intense as the shocks, but things were soon gotten in shape again, and the wire placed out of reach of man and beast. . Two well-known young men of Atlanta were leisurely walking along South Pryor street, within five blocks of the station house, on Friday night, about 9 o’clock, when two men suddenly stepped from behind a tree and hurled tw o big rocks at them, striking <<ne on the fleshy part of his left leg. The assailants then fled down South Pryor street. It is thought that the object of the would-be assassins was robbery, but they were prevented from robbing the young men because they ran under a street lamp. The matter was reported to the police, who, if possible, will apprehend the scoundrels. This bold attack, almost in the heart of the city, shows that South Pryor street should be more thoroughly policed. People were seated on their porches when the attack was made, and there are lights all along the street. South Pryor street is getting to be a dangerous locality, and it is folly to talk of extending the city limits when the present police force seems inadequate to protect the persons of pedestrians almost within call or the station house. Sunday two young men and their bicycles arrived in Atlanta. They left Niagara Falls on May 31, and. with tho exception of about sixty-five miles, the entire distance between Niagara and Atlanta has been ord ered by tho wheelmen on their machines. The names of the bicyclists are George C. Bowen, of Medina, N. Y., and C. T. Gum sey, of Macon, Ga. Mr. Gunisey spent the winter at the North, and when he started home Mr. Bowen concluded to accompany him, both deciding to make the trip on their machines. Leaving Niagara on tho last of May they have traveled almost constantly since, averaging fifty-five miles per The first five days were made through heavy rains, but since then fair weather has en abled them to get along more rapidly. The bicyclists left for Macon Monday. Mr. Bowen, the New York wheelman, will spend some time in Georgia, principally in Macon. Tho bicycle tournament in Athens early in July will draw the presence of both gentlemen, who will attend as specta tors, and may possibly enter some of the contests. Wesley Freeman (colored) was shot and instantly killed about 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon. Squire Searcy, a colored boy about 19 years old, did the shooting. The difficulty occurred about three miles below Griffin near the Central railroad. Freeman and Searcy met on the railroad track. Rearcy dunned Freeman for 50c., which Freeman refused to pay because Searcy had broke two banjo strings of his. Searcy agreed to pay for the strings if Freeman would pay what he owed him. Freeman refused to do this, and liegon to curse Searcy, and dared him to fight. Freeman walked from the railroad track into the road, pulled off his’coat and took a half-empty whisky flask from his pocket, threw it on the ground and told Searcy that he would kill him, or Searcy must kill him right there. Freeman picked up two rocks, threw one at Searcy, who dodged it. Searcy then drew his pistol and fired. The first shot hit Freeman near the left nipple, Freeman throw a second rock, when Searcy shot a second time, and Freeman fell arid died in a few minutes. Searcy has escaped. The shooting attracted a large crowd, and a great ileal of excite ment was created. Three or four hundred people congregated around the body. Brunswick Appeal: Sunday at noon, when the sun was shining its hottest, Mr. Jeter’s little girl camo over to Mr. Hopkins, lust across Broadway, to let him know that his sidewalk was afire. Upon going out Mr. H. found a blaze coining up between the cracks of the planks—no sooner hail he put it out than he noticed other places smoking. He then commenced experimenting, and whenever hu drew his foot across the plank it would take fire: a dog’s track on the walk would immediately become a blaze. No place on the sidewalk would ignite from this friction except that where the sun had full power—the least shade would prevent it. The blaze as describ'd to us was similar to that of brandy afire—a sort, of bluish, cast. As soon as Mr. Hopkins had satisfied himself that there were no matches or sulphur on the walk, he sprinkled the wnlk with water, and thus put an end to the phe nomenon. At noon to-day we visited the scene and tried several exjieriments, but could gain no results like that of yesterday. We •saw, however, the charred places on the sidewalk caused by the phenomenon of the day before. One peculiarity about the matter is that only tho dry plank free from pitch would take fire. Those out of whieh the pitch had been drawn would not ignite. What scientist will explain this strago phe nomenon! rixmiDA. Maitland has a brand-new depot. The Htate tax has been raised 1 mill. Turtle and turtle eggs are plenty at Fort Mvers. St. Augustine’s post office has been en larged. John, a negro living in Arredonda, is 103 y oai a old. THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, .TUNE 22, 1887.

Emanuel Masters, of St. Augustine, went hunting on the North beach Wednesday night for turtle eggs. He discovered four nests containing over 500 eggs. A man at Ybor City the other day stuck a nail iu his foot, making an ugly wound. In an hour it was reported in Tampa that he was down with the yellow fever.

Lake City Citizen: Tobacco is remark ably freo from worms this season. In going over twenty acres of the weed last week we failed to find a single one, and the leaves show but few depredations from them. This is a good sign for wrappers. The steamer Port Royal again sunk within a few hours after having been taken off the ways at Jacksonville. The bow of the boat was then hauled up further in shore and the steamer left where she will probably remain for several months to come. “Ten Nights in a Barroom” was played in Titusville, at Wager's Hall, Tuesday even ing, to a large and appreciative audience, by the Titusville Dramatics.

Alachua Advocate: The regimental band from St. Augustine is superior to any that has ever visited our city. The musicians are twenty-three in number, all of them fine looking gentlemen. Our people are delight ed with this band and we hope this may not be its last visit to our city. “Alachua county will go 1,000 majority in favor of no whiskey if it comes to a vote this fall,” said a prominent official. “You see it is this way with us: we are an educa tional centre, and striving every way to be come more so, and to be a temperance town would do much to promote the cause.” M. J. McClendon, of Bakersburg, went out bunting squirrels a few days ago with a breech-loading shotgun. He fired at a squirrel and missed it.

A singular spectacle was observed on the St. Augustine streets Thursday morning, that of a deputy sheriff leading a little col ored kid to the county jail handcuffed. The enormity of his offence, however, may have justified this. The K>y liad helped himself to a few sour plums from a rich man’s yard. There were two marriages in Orlando Thursday. Mr. John A.

Hunt & Myers are planting atvsiit 300 bushels of seed oysters daily in Jolly river, aud arc well pleased with" the result of their venture up to the present.

If any of our fellow beings are suffer ing from hepatic disorders and have doubts in regard to the efficacy of this preparation, we can only offer them the simple and candid argu mentof Philip to Nathaniel, 'Come and see.’ Try the proposed remedy and than you can judge for yourselves.”— Rkv.
