both tbe inner and outer doors were carried
off, but nothing else, so fur as is known,
was molested, although two handsome solid

and make the church a sleeping place at

As the construction train was returning
to Americus from Flint river on .Saturday
night last, a negro man was knocked off one
of the cars and had rather a narrow escape
from se.rious injury. He was stretched out
upon the car fast asleep, with his head pro
jecting over the side when suddenly it was
brought with terrible force against a light
wood stump near the track. The darkey
was knocked from the car by the force of
the blow, and the train at once stopped, his
companions expecting to And him mangled
beyond repair or recognition, but greatly to
their surprise, the darkey was already upon
his feet, uninjured and swearing roundly
at having had his sweet dreams so rudely
The receipts and expenditures incident to
the inspection of fertilizers for the past
season are as follows: 166,078.08 tons have
been inspected during the past season, the
foes amounting to $83,039 01. The expenses
have consisted of tags, express charges, tele
grams, dravage, stationery, traveling ex
penses, all of which amounted to $4,771 66.
leaving a balance which was paid into the
treasury of $78,307 33. The salaries of in
spectors amounted to $10,200, leaving a net
balance of $68,107 35. This is the largest
net balance ever paid into the treasury on
this account save one. which occurred in
the season of 1884-85, when it amounted to
$70,183 73. The bureau of inspection is not
only a vast benefit to the farmers, prevent
ing worthless manures from being imposed
on them, but is a source of considerable
revenue to the State.
Gov. Gordon has not taken any action as
yet in the case of Isabella Rooney, the white
woman confined at the Chattahoochee
brick yard camp. The pressure upon the
Governor to pardon the unfortunate
woman is very strong, and it is probable
that he will do something to relieve her
condition. It is said that the lessees of
camp No. 3 are very anxious to get rid of
the woman. She is intensely ignorant, and
she is kept under lock and key in order that
she may be protected against any improper
assault. She is a white woman of a very
low order of civilization, her dialect being
that peculiar South Georgia style charac
teristic of the lower class of white people
who live among the pine forests. The
Woman's Christian Temperance Union
promise to look after the woman in the
event of her freedom.
Gov. Gordon received, some days ago, a
letter from a young lady in Flint Hill, Va.,
in which he was requested to send his photo
graph. The young lady declared that her
name was “Virginia Gordon,” that her pa
rents called her so in honor of her native
State and after the General, whose reputa
tion in Virginia was widespread for bravery
in battle and kindness to nis soldiers. The
lady was born during the war, and was
named about the time Gen. Gordon was
campaigning in Virginia. She stated much
interest had been manifested in his race for
the Gubernatorial chair, and had she been
able to have voted would certainly have
cast her ballot for hi>r namesake. She ex
pressed the wish that the Governor would
have a long and prosperous reign and every
personal blessing. The Governor wrote her
an autograph letter, and enclosed his photo
At Milner Sunday night unknown parties
entered the blacksmith shop of Jordan Han
nel. and arming themselves with sledge
hammer, auger and chisel, forced an en
trance through the front door of the post
office by breaking off the lock, and after
opening all the letters that showed any sus
picions of i-ontaining money, rifling all the
money drawers, appropriating a goodly
number of stamps, ana committing some
other depredations on the stock of goods of
B. A. Howe,, forced their way out by the
back door, leaving the house exposed to
other unprincipled scoundrels for the bal
ance of the night. From there they went to
the furniture store of B. P. Ferguson. They
again forced an entrance through the front
door by breaking off the lock, and by tear
ing open money drawers, scattering notes
and carrying off goods, damaging him to
the amount of $25 or S3O.

The lime quarry, three miles northeast of
Rockmart, continues to be the scene of
most remarkable discoveries of animal
life in human form of pre-existing ages.
Some of the workmen wno lived in town
had large crowds around them Suuday
morning last listening to the wonderful
stories they relate relative to the giant skele
ton found in a cave ten feet below the sur
face of the rock. They state that a skele
ton of a woman was found lying on its face.
When removed or handled carelessly it de
composes. J. H. Dunn visited the quarry
last Sunday and says he never saw anything
before like it. He also told the reporter
that some boys found another skeleton on the
mountain insome clefts of rocks. He hrought
a piece of its jawbone along with him, and
says “men of this duy and time are too
small for such jawbones.” Another curious
feature to be found is small mounds of rock
on the floor of the cave, in each of which
large human bones arc deposited. One of
the gentlemen living in town exhibited sev
eral pieces of liones from the cave. One
piece he brought to town with him has a
figure live cut into its surface. Among
many other strange and unaccountable arti
cles found in the cave was a knife of a make
and style of age whereunto the memory of
mail runneth not. The incredulous had

At Macou Saturday, in the United States
Circuit Court, in the case of J. K. O. Sher
wood against Rebecca Rduntree, Judge
Speer rendered a decision in his ehprge to
the jury which is regarded by leading mem
bers of "the bar as one of the most far-reach
ing and important hi its consequences which
has been made in this circuit for years. The
pendency of an immense number of suits
against land owners in Georgia in
which the principle decided is appli
cable, gives it this important. The
testimony in the case was that the
agents of the money lenders did i a ted 20 per
cent byway of commissions, ana counsel in
argument stated that in all the. borrower
had paid 43 per cent, interest This, of
course, under the Georgia taw, would be
usurious, and the usury would render void
any deed or mortgage made to secure such
a debt, provided that the true lender of the
money had notice of the usury. It was in
evidence that Sherwood, through the Cor
bin Banking Conuiany of New York,
had made manv of "these loans, ana
Judge Speer charged the jury that
if from the nature of the transac
tion, the great number of the loans
of this character made where the deeds
and mortgages were executed to the plain
tiff in this case; the continuous nature of
the transactions and importance of the
amounts involved, it was reasonable to be
inferred that a man of ordinary prudence
in his business transactions would under
stand and know it, in the absence of proof
to the contrary, and that presumption 'not
rebutted by proof would charge him with
all the consequences of the usurious con
tract of his agents; and that if this be true,
the plaintiff can only recover the legal rah'
of interest. The most widespread effect of
the decision will be that such usury would
render void the deeds and mortgages exe
cuted to these usurious loans.
Just a half mile from the corporation line
of Griffln. on the Macon road, there nestles
in a beautiful grove the cozy home of Mr.
and Mrs. Lyons. Recently W. H. H. Lyons,
the father of Mrs. Lyons, arrived from
Rochester, N. Y., on a visit. In wandering
over the farm his attention was attracted to
a peculiar, yet familiar to him, formation
of the ground. The earth at a particular
place had every indication of bituminous
limestone, a never-failing sign of gas and
petroleum. Upon a close examination of
the earth he discovered that there was that
damp, oily appearance indicative of pe
troleum. The exudation appeared so clearly
that he is confident that ne cannot lie mis
taken in his opinion that gas and petroleum
can be found in this place. Mr. Lyons’
opinion in this matter is valuable. He was
raised in Rochester, N. Y., and is per
fectiy familiar with the oil fields of
Bloomdale. He has made exten
sive investigations of the subject and
says there is no reason why as fine oil and
gas cannot be found here as in New York,
Pennsylvania or Ohio. In his investigation
he learned that the Indians when here were
in the habit of coming to a spring near by
this place for water, which they called
“medicine water.” Old Uncle Tillman Sea
graves, who recently died near this place,
remembered well Indians ooming after thLs
water and relating wonderful cures effected
by it. It is true, continued Mr. Lyons, that
the Indians used to collect the petroleum oil
on the shores of Seneca Lake and sell it as
medicine, by the name of “Seneca or Yene
see oil.” An effort will be made to have an
analysis made to ascertain if there is gas or
oil. "Should a gas and oil well be found it is
impossible to foretell the beneficent results
to Griffin and Sp&ldiug county. The well will,
be sufficiently convenient to "run pipes into
the city, so that instead of the flickering kero
sene lamps that now dimly light, our streets,
natural gas jets will adorn and beautify the

Sine* the rainy season has begun a clo*e
observance of the orange groves around Or-'
lando reveals a coming crop of summer
bloom such as ha* never been seen here be
fore. A correspondent was shown a young
budded grove Saturday the trees in which
are studded with minute blossom buds and
some that are showing white. The proba
bilities are that Orlando is going to have a
summer crop next year that will bring at
least double the price of an orange winter
crop. The oid seedling groves are budding
also, but not so profusely as the one referred
to above, but so far as can be learned this
blooming will be general.
Monday a colored man from some of the
southern counties was bound for Jackson-'
ville, but having failed to provide himself
with the necessary health certificate was
nut off the steamer by the inspector at Point
La Vista. He aftenvard stated his case to
some ond whom he chanced to meet, and
this individual volunteered to give the col
ored man a certificate for so. AVithout
knowing any lirtter he gave the man $5,
who wrote out a certificate which he knew
was not worth the paper it was written
upon. The colored man, thinking that it
was all right, took the bogus certificate and
walked into the eitv, but was soon after
ward taken up and sent to the sand hills.
If the members of the Board of Health can
satisfy themselves that he is all right he
will be liberated at once. They should have
the man who wrote the certificate run
down, arrested and prosecuted for obtain
ing money under false pretenses.
A hunter on James Island, about twenty
miles from Carrabelle, lately killed a rattle
snake having thirty-five rattles. That part
of the State is remarkably free from the
venomous reptiles, that is to say they are
not under every old log, but when it comes
down to fish the Gulf coast can match the
whole State. Not long since the sloop which
carries the mail between Carrabelle and
Apalachicola was capsized in a squall and
sank in twelve feet of water. The crew got
safely to shore. The next day another sloop
and schooner went out to raise the craft. A
huge shark was evidently in possession, and
it was deemed advisable to first dispense
with his company. A shark hook was
baited, and after a half an hour's coaxing
he took the bait and hook and was hauled on
deck. On cutting him open it was evident
he had been in the cabin of the sloop, as
they found three canvased hams, one pair of
new shoes and the leather mail pouch, all of
which were saved in good order.
As Putnam county is about to have a
hanging it is interesting to know the cir
cumstances of the county’s last hanging,
twenty years ago. William Stevens was at
that time Sheriff, Tax Collector and Asses
sor. One day in November, 1866, this
officer went to "the house of the Registers to
collect taxes. AVhile at dinner the amount,
S6O, was paid over to the collector in the
presence of "a young son. When Mr.
Stevens had left he was soon followed by
young Register, who said he was going
squirrel hunting. AVhen near the forks of
the Etoniah crebk, he overtook Stevens,
shot and killed him. AVhile
leaning over the body to get at
the money 1 he dropped a letter, and that was
the clue that led to the execution. He was
tried and convicted, and placed in the old
jail that stood where the Putnam County
Journal office was. His gallows were
erected about where the Jacksonville,
Tampa and Key AVeat shops now stand in
Palatka. The gallows were burned down
years ago, and from that day to this not a
sprout ot grass has grown on the spot,
though the surrounding ground is covered.
Putnam’s first hanging in twenty years will
take place July 23.
The Post Office Department hast just con
cluded the task of readjusting the salaries
of the various postmasters other titan
fourth-class throughout the country. The
total results show an enormous increase for
t-hf whole country in the amount of busi
ness done by mail, and a corresponding in
crease in the amount to be paid by the de
partment for salaries, etc. The result
conequentlv is a good indication of the pros
perity of the country, and of course more
especially of the towns and cities in which
the postmasters' compensation is increased.
With a very few exceptions all the principle
offices throughout Florida show a sufficient
increase in the gross receipts to earn
an increase*l salary for the postmasters
showing that Florida is experiencing a
steady growth of population and business.
The following are the changes which will go
into effect on July 1: The salary of the
Postmaster at Bartow will be increased from
sl,looto $1,300 a year: Jacksonville from
$3,000 to $3,100; Key AVest from SI,BOO to
$1,900; Kissimmee irom SI,OOO to $1,100;
Ocala from $1,600 to $1,700; Orlando and
Palatka from $3,000 to $2,100; Pensacola
from $2,200 to $3,300; Rt. Augustine from
$1,900 to $2,000; Tampa from $1,700 to
SI,BOO. The salaries of the following places
fall off: Eustis from $1,400 to $1,300; Lees
burg from $1,300 to $1,200.

G. E. Bryson secretary. After speeches had
been delivered by Ramon Revero,
editor of the El Ecuador , Senor A.
Pioti, Ramon Perez, Antonio Oliver©,
Manuel Misscassfa, prominent Cubans,
and G. E. Bryson, editor of the
Evening Call , the following resolutions
were unanimously adopted: Whereat, The
Monroe county Board of I leal If, having
without a projier investigation declared yel
low fever to Ire epidemic in Key West ami
caused thereby uu unjust arrd outrageous
quarantine to be placed against the city,
thus suspending our regular dispatched New
York steamboat service, crippling the com
merce of our island and threatening its
manufacturing interests, now, therefore,
we, tho manufacturers, business men,
cigar makers ainl citizens in mass meet
ing assembled denounce their prema
ture arbitrary and uncalled for announce
ment as untruthful ami injurious to the
best, interest of the city. We claim that tho
death rate is less than for a corresponding
period of the preceding year, anil that a
death rate of -10 a month, which tbo records
show, is small fora city of 20.000 people.
We protest, therefore, against the quaran
tine against our city at Tampa ami else
where, the cause for' wiiich may bo laid at
the door of our board of health. We drp
recate the action of our boa pi of health in
declining to permit a postmortem ex
amination to prove the tyiith or untruth of
tho claim that yellow fever is in tho city,
and we lietition the Surgeon Generul of the
National Marine Hospital service to re
quest a committee ot yellow fever exerts,
to consist of one local (Julian physician, one
local American physician, and one member
of the Marino Hospital service, to hold a
post mortem uimn some patients (lying nt
the hospital, and claimed by the board of
health to havo died of yellow' fever, and
thus decide the matter. Weclaint the mem
bers of tho board of health to be totally in
competent. and would recommend their re
moval by the Governor, and also petition
the next meeting of the Legislature to annul
tho law providing such a board.
