air. How tile chick happened to get in that

any inconvenience from its inflation.

The following dispatch appeared in the
Jacksonville News-Herald: “Key West,
June 24. —The Cuban, Dr. Moreno, this
morning was arrested by order of tho
Board of Health, charged with declining
to report as yellow fever the case of a negro
patient of his dying yesterday after twenty
two days’ illness, without throwing black
vomit. The physicians of the Board,
however, declare it yellow fever, and want
Moreno jailed because he denies it. Hon.
E. O. Locke, Moreno’s attorney, waived
examination, however, thus frustrating the
purposes of the Board, and Moreno was
bound over to the Circuit Court. Memlxrs
of the Board of Health were last night hung
and burned in eliigy by Cubans here.
Commenting on it the Key West Equator
says: “We do not know who is the corres
pondent of the Sews- Herald in this city,
out this much we can say of him that he
certainly is very unreliable as the above
telegram shows. The Sewe-Herald cer
tainly does not wish to give circulation and
publication to an article that is absurdly
false and that does a grave injustice to phy

Board of Health. They were not burned in

says: The wedding bells that were to have
rang out their dulcet notes upon the balmy
breezes of the Capital City at 10 o’clock this
morning did not ring. The bright smiles
of the happy bride that were expected to
beam upon the assembled guests are turned
into bitter scorn. The gay throng of in
vited guests that were exjx-cted to tie pres
ent did not gather, the bridal trousseau re
mains unworn, the solemn ceremony
remains unsaid, and the bright anticipations
of future happiness is turned into disap
pointment, sore and humiliating, because
tile bridegroom turned up this
morning in the Thomasville jail with one of
Kempers best teams on his hands and a
warrant for obtaining goods under false pre
tenses staring him in the face. Mr. Henry
E. Guile, the guileful guiler who thus be
guiled a guilele*i girl into this most unpleas
ant predicameut, claims to have a home in
Philadelphia, for which place he was to have
started to-day with his bride immediately
after the marriage. He has been employed
for some time past on the Florida Railway
and Navigation railroad, and noone doubted
the sincerity of his attentions to the girl
whom he has deceived, until last night it
was learned that he had hired a team from
Kemper's stables early yesterday morn
ing, claiming that he wanted to
drive around town for an hour or so, and
had not returned it. At a late hour last
night Deputy Sheriff Hopkins was notified
of the disappearance of Gqjle with the horse
and buggy, and immediately Hashed a de
scription of him over the wire to neighbor
ing sheriffs. This morning a dispatch was
received from Thomasville saying: “Horse
and buggy all right; man in jail.” Mr.
Hopkins left a few hours ago armed with
the necessary papers to bring him back, and
the probabilities are that Mr. Guile will be
come a guile-sick guiler before he gets his
guilty head out of this gullish noose.
The Luck of Some New Orleans Men
in the June Drawing of the Lou
isiana State Lottery.
About noon on Wednesday three men
stepped into the private office of The Lou
isiana State Lottery Company, and their
smiling faces betrayed their errand. They
were John W. Tenny, an engineer, and
Charles Dennis and John Moran, watchmen,
all three at present in Government employ,
the latter on board the United States Gov
ernment boat General Newton, and Tenny
is engineer of the Ruby, the boats now lying
near tho Exposition grounds, preparing for
a trip to the Atchafauaya.
Dennis had a twentieth of the ticket which
won the $300,000 prize, rolled up carelessly
between his fingers. He straightened it out
on the table ana said:
“There it is boys; we’ve got it.”
“You see,” said Dennis, "this is a ‘com
bine.’ Wo each buy a ticket every month,
form a pool, and divide the profits. Wo
have been Inlying tickets for several years,
and at last we struck it.” f3SS
“It was his ticket that did the business,”
said Tenny. “Moran and I bought ours,
hut Dennis did not liuvea chance to go down
town. He finally asked a friend of his to
bring him up a dollar ticket. Dennis got
his dollar ticket and put it in the pool. I
thought no more of it until the morning
after the drawing. I had the blues, but
when I saw the Picayune —you can guess
the rest. There on top of the column were
the figures 52,74'A and opposite them t'uo
$300,000 prize. That is our number, and so
Dennis Moran and I told the boss that we
had important business down town and hero
w e ore. ”

Just then a check for the money they had

Clare. Ireland, 38 years of age, 4:as been in
America since childhood, and in New Or
