CENTRAL'S NEW LINES.
THE GREAT SYSTEM RAPID!/? EX
The Work on New Branches in Georgia
and Alabama-Three New Roads in
Southeast Alabama-The Carrollton,
Decatur Branch and the Good water
Extension—New Steel Rails and Ten-
Ton Engines—The Opening Up of a
The Central railroad is pushing work on
Its western extensions and General Manager
Belknap gives a meet favorable account of
Its progress. The contract for building the
Blakely extension from Blakely to Columbia
has been let and work will be begun next
week. The extension from Clayton to Ozark
has been surveyed, but the engineers have
not yet worked up the details. It will not
be long, however, before active building
anil be begun there. A third extension,
from Troy, Ala., to Elba, is now occupying
a corps of engineers, who are laying out the
route. These three lines will open up South
eastern Alabama, which is now without a
AN UNDEVELOPED SECTION.
The country is rich and fertile, and is very
well settled up, considering the disadvant
ages under which the settlers labor. The
opening of it by the entrance of these three
lines, which will connect it directly with a
large port and thereby give it access to the
markets of the world, will of course induce
settlers to enter and develop its great
resources. From these roads the company
expects to get a larger amount of business
than would be supposed by one who has not
examined the country, but a number of
reports concerning it have been received
from reliable persons who have made a
thorough investigation, and Mr. Belknap
thinks that within eighteen months those
little lines will be doing a large business.
Another piece of work that is under con
tract is the budding of a direct line from
Ellaville to Americas. At present the
road runs from Ellaville to Andersou, thence
to Amerieuß, making a V, but that will be
cut out and Americas will be given more
direct communication through Buena Vista.
THE NORTHWEST CONNECTION.
Next week the rails will be sent out to be
laid on the southern division of the branch
that is to run from Carrollton to Decatur,
or such other point as may be selected. This
line is to connect with one to be built by the
Illinois Central, and thus direct connec
tion with the Northwest will be had. The
bed is nearly ready for the rails as
far as the Tallapoosa river. Just north of
the Tallapoosa the work will be delayed for
a time. There are two tunnels to be cut and
a bridge to be built, but while that is Icing
done the road will be building northward so
that the w ork will be completed by the
time the line is ready to be opened.
INVADING THE MINERAL BELT.
The line from Columbus to Goodwater on
the Birmingham branch is to be equipped
with heavy steel rails, and the light ones
now in use will he used in building the three
Southern Alabama branches. The reason
that the heavier rails will be substitu
ted is that w'hen the line is com
pleted through to Birmingham there
will be a good deal of mineral and coal
hauled. To do that the company has ordered
ten consolidated engines, which weigh, with
their tenders, 185,000 pounds each. This
road will make Savannah the coal and min
eral port of the South Atlantic coast.
The output of the mineral and coal sec
tions of Alabama has increased enormously.
Already it is far in excess of the consump
tion, and it must get out to market, for it
cannot lie idly there, and the railroad is just
what is needed to relieve the miners of their
surplus product and enable them to realize
on their work. This, of course, will result
in a more extensive development of the
region and an enormous increase in the
business of the Central railroad and the port
AN EAST AND WEST SYSTEM.
Mr. Belknap said that the Central is an
east and west system. It* growth is wester
ly. and it is thoroughly covering the region
through which it runs. As one line shoot*
out a little further west than any preced
ing one has gone, branches hand extensions
are built to fill in the territory Ishind
that point, and thus the whole Southeast is
being covered with a net work of the lines
of this great Southern system. Already one
line has i-eached Selma. Ala., and now the
extensions spoken of above are being built,
stretching out like fingers, reaching in every
direction and opening country hitherto com
ply tively undeveloped.
QUEEN VICTORIA HONORED.
Hags Displayed and Scotchmen Drink

NOT WORKING A CORNER.
Dan Talmage Sons & Co.’s Reply to
Harmon & Cope.
Dan Talmage Sons & Cos. have written a
letter to the Morning News denying that
they arti attempting to get up a comer in
rice as stated by Messrs. Harmon & Cope in
an interview last week. The following tele
gram was received by the Morning News
New York, June 21.—Referring to the article
in the Mornino News of June 19, headed “A
Rice Corner Working,” we will say that we
endorse every word of the Journal of Com
merce in its issue of June 15, to wit: • The de
mand failing away, market declined, stock
spoiling, and we beg to ask what season of the
year the so-called festive weavil and plodding
worm carry on their destructive depredations,
if not in summer, and whether this season is
exceptional in this respect.”
The interview in connection with the article
which involves our name is incorrect in every
essential particular. First, domestic rice is de
clining from causes outside of and quite inde
pendent of ns. Second, we are selling Patna
und other rice only on a true commercial liasis.
i. e., for profit, Third, we have not bought
any rice in Savannah for over
a month, nor is anyone now author
ized to buy any rice for our
account. Much as we regret it, we are compelled
to say that dom.ctic rice is now too high, which
assertion is conclusively proven hv the fact that
its rival, the foreign product, is selling not only
in the West, but also iu the South, even at your
very doors. Dan Tai.m auk's Sons & (So.

The Abercorn Street Collision.
Mayor Lester investigated the Abercorn
street car collision in Police Court yesterday
morning. Robert Dooly, driver of the

cipal witness. He stated that he thought
the accident was unavoidable. He did not
hear the engine gong, and did not think
that the driverdid. Chief Fernandez stated
that the Fire Department has the right of

COM. DEMERE'S NEW YACHT.
His Disappointment at the Delay in
Shipping the New Racer.
Com. Demere, of the Isle of Hope
Yacht Club, received a telegram yesterday
from New York stating that his new yacht
will not be ready on Saturday as promised.
The contract he has with Mr. William
Fletcher, the builder, is that it should be
reaily by June 15, and he received notice
that it would lie delivered on the coming
Saturday. He immediately communicated
with Gen. Sorrel and made all arrange
ments for bringing the yacht down on the
City of Augusta, which ’is the only one of
the steamers that can accommodate her. He
employed two riggers to be on hand Tues
day next to rig her up at once, and as soon
as "he got her sails up he was going to make
up a party and give the boat a trial.
He has all his crockery ready and waiting
and expected to havo everything nicely
stowed away by Wednesday, but his hopes
were dashed to the ground by the telegram
that said she could not be delivered for a
few days. He does not know what a few
days mean to a shipbuilder, and is afraid
that he will be cut out of all the July
events. The new yacht has been entered
for the Fourth of July race, and the Com
modore intended to take her out on the club
cruise and in the big race that will be sailed
by the Charleston and Savannah clubs ou
July 12, but iie is afraid he will miss them
both. Mr. Demere is sure, however, that
when she does arrive she will eclipse every
thing in these waters.
She is 35 feet fi inches long, 12 feet beam
and 4 feet in depth of hold. The cabin is
large anil roomy and fitted with everything
that will add to’ comfort and convenience.
There are four large bunks, and many ac
commodations that other boats around liero
lack. She will be full sloop-rigged, and her
equipments will be complete. She will lie
painted white outside unit mahogany inside,
with all the stripes of gold and other rdjors
that will make her pretty and attractive.
The Commodore is very impatient to receive
her, as he wishes to show what a really per
fect yacht is.

ABOUT THE MOSQUITO.
Where He Comes From and What
Makes His Bite Uncomfortable.
The long cylindrical eggs of mosquitos are
laid in little pockets which float on the sur
face of standing water. In four weeks after
hatching the insect passes through its trans
formations and becomes an enemy to man’s
comfort. The voting mosquito, in the larvae
state, is aquatic, living like fish in ponds,
lakes and stagnant wHer. It is fish-like in
shape, with the head and adjoining parts
much enlarged, and breaths* by means of a
bunch of hairs radiating from a long tuber
cle at the end of the body and connecting
with the internal respiratory tubes. It re
mains most of the time after coming from
the egg at the bottom, feeding upon decay
ing matter, and is thus very beneficial as a
scavenger. Later it becomes very active,
jerking up and down in the water, aided by
a pair of broad caudal leaves. When ob
served constantly about the surface of the
water it is a 'sure sign it is about to
assume the full shape and powers of a
mosquito. The aquatic animal is seen to
crawl on some substance floating on the
the water—a leaf or bit of twig—give a
twist or two, split its covering, ana in a
short time put out wings and float away.
The males, which may lie distinguished by
their bushy horns or feelers in front of their
heads, do not bite. It is the female who
gives all the trouble—singing and biting.
No poison-gland has yet been found in the
mosquito's head, and it is generally thought
that the inflammation and swelling follow
ing the bite of mosquitoes are due to the
irritation set up by their slightly barbed
jaws, and perhaps the saliva is slightly
acrid. Under the microscope the soft, plas
tic foot of the mosquito is seen to be freckled.
It may eohifort those who suffer from the
attack of these iusects to know that mos
quitoes have their personal troubles also, as
the microscope shows vermin on them not
