Announcement of the Degrees Con
ferred—The Class Honors.
Athens, Ga. , July 13. —The closing exer
cises of the University commencement were
held in the University chapel this morning.
The exercises consisted of speeches by the
graduating class, whose names appeared in
the Morning News a few days ago. Glen
Waters, of Atlanta, an honor man, did not
speak with the class this morning. His sub
ject was “Evolution,” and according to the
rules of the college he was forbidden any
reference to politics or religion in his speech.
This was very disappointing to many of his
friends, who were very anxious to hear
him on this subject. Sir. Waters, rather
than modify his speech, decided that
he would not speak at all. After the grad
uating exercises Chancellor Mel) announced
that the trustees had conferred upon Min
ister Curry, of Spain, the degree of
LL.D..and upon Profs. Charbonnier and
White, of the University of Georgia, each,
the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The
following degrees were conferred upon the
members of the graduating class: Bachelor
of Arts, first.honor, U. V. Whipple; Bachelor
of Engineering, first honor. B. T. Johnson;
Bachelor of Science, Glen Waters; Bachelor
of Mining Engineering, H. R. Milner, first
honor; Bachelor of Philosophy, first honor,
W. H. Hammond; Bachelor of Agriculture,
W. B. Crawford, first honor.
Diplomas for the degree of Bachelor of
Irfiw were awarded to Robert Andoe, E. Bul
lard, W. Chisholm, H. Dean, P. Gilbert. G.

An India Rubber Neck and Bust.
New York Letter in Indianapolis Journal.
It was a mistake to accuse a woman of in
dulging in all the follies of fashion that are
provided for them. Inventive men devise
things which, they imagine, will Us eagerly
accepted by women, but which for a fact
never get into use at all. Of that order,
no doubt, is the contrivance on exhibition
in a certain New York shop for toilet goods.
It consists of an India rubber neck and bust,
and is exhibited ad justed to an oldish woman
employe. It -omes up close about the neck,
and has a velvet ribbon that conceals the
meeting, with ends of velvet depending in tiie
rear to nide the opening where it is buttoned
or stuck together. The ends of veivet are so
enrely fastened sothey will not flop, and, as
the boys say, “give the whole snap away.”
It is painted in flesh color, and has every
blue vein carefuliy mapped out on it, and
the wearer, who was painfully thin, made
up her figure hend to match it as nearly as
possible. But there was a ghastly com
posure about this mask for the torso that
was unnatural. Amt how hot she must
have been with that clinging rubber over
her neck and shoulders! I studied her after
1 was told what she hail on, and it nearly
stiffixl mo to contemplate her slowly fi l ing
in her own fat. It, is safe to say that no
sale of the apparatus will ever to made;but
it serves to advertise the shop, because it
sets the women to talking about it.
Sunday Fun In Tennessee.
From the Courier-Journal.
On Sunday afternoon near Nenrsville four
boys, whose ages range from 10 to 15 years,
went to bathe. On the opposite side of the
river a crowd of men and toys on a raft
were firing pistols and a rifle up and down
the river. The lads undressed and entered
the water. They had been there but a few
moments when the tiring lieeame promiscu
ous and Elmore Green, one of the party,
shouted to the crowd on the other side to to
more careful. The request was not heeded
and Noah Cantrell, agivl 10 years, begun to
curse the crowd. Shots were now uimed at,
the toys and bullets whistled atout their
heads. Three of them ran to the hank and
lay down toliind a large log; the fourth
stayed near the bank, hidden behind a small
raft. Fully twenty snots were fired at them,
some of which struck the bank a few feet
Noah Cantrell, cramped from remaining
in one position, raised his head above the
log nnd fell hack. A bullet had struck him
squarely in the centre of his forehead. The
firing continued. One of his comrades
shouted that one toy had already been shot
and for God's sake to quit shooting. The
reply came liaek over the water:
“D—n you, we will kill another.”
And thirteen more shots were counted to
fore the fusilade ended. Meunwhilo the
wounded toy had become senseless ami mo
tionless. Three men rowed over in a skiff
from the raft and he was carried to* Ins
home. The ball bad |ienetratod the brain.
Our great success in thin Coats and Vests
so far this season, compelled us to telegraph
our New York buyer to purchase anew
stock of them, which he has done, and now
we can show the prettiest styles in the city.

THR MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1887.
A Physician Tells How He Tried an
Experiment with Chloroform.
Horn the Missouri Republican.
Osage Mission, Kan. , July 13. —Quite
an excitement was occasioned here a few
i hit's ago by the appearance upon the main
street of the place of what is supposed to
have been a mad dog. The to wn was
crowded with people and the streets alive
with teams and wagons. The dog started
down the street, biting right and left, and
before he was killed is known to have bit
ten several horses and dogs, but, as far as
known, the people all escaped by running
into the stores and other places of retreat.
The dog was finally shot.
In connection with this the following in
cident related by V. G. Miller, an old army
surgeon and practicing physician of a
quarter of a century’s experience mar to of
interest. Mr. Miller stated that he had
never been calk'd on to treat but one ease
of hydrophobia when it was beyond a doubt
that it was a ease of rabies. “This,” he
said, “was when I first began the practice
of medicine. I was called one night to see
a man who, the messenger said, was suffer
ing with intense spasms and nothing that
could be done would relieve him. I took
with mo my medicine case and also put into
my sack-bags a bottle of chloroform, con
taining about three ounces. When I ar
rived I found the patient quiet,
with a rapid, irregular pulse, but
in fa few minutes ho was seized
with a paroxysm which it took the
combined strength of myself and the
family to control. He frothed at the
moutn, snapping and snarling like a dog.
As soon as he was quiet I began to ask
questions of the family and soon found that
a few days before ho had toon bitten by a
strange dog that came into the cow lot one
morning and was snapping at the cattle.
He attempted to drive the animal out, but
the dog turned on him and jumping up in
flicted a slight wound on his left arm. It
was nothing more than a scratch, had
healed up in a day or so and nothing more
was thought of it. From the description of
the dog 1 was confident that it wus the same
that a few days tofore had been killed in the
neighborhood, undoubtedly mad, and I could
no longer doubt what was the matter w ith
my patient. His cries when he went into
the spasms were terrible to hear. I gave
him various remedies to quiet him, but
they seemingly had no effect. At this time
I happened to think of the bottle of chloro
form. I had then toon at work on the pa
tient for over two hours and had not been
able to give him any relief whatever, and I
w as pretty well assured that the man would
die anyway. I was alone with him except
ing members of the family, who would not
know the difference and I determined to try
an experiment, either to quiet the man or
kill him with the chloroform. When his
next spasm came on, I saturated a cloth
w ith tiie liquid and placed it to the patient’s
nose and mouth. He struggled for a long
time, but at last the drug did its work and
he sank back insensible. He soon came to,
the spasm still on him, anil I again treated
him in the same way. This I continued
during the remainder of the night and
until 9 o’clock the next morning,
using up all the chloroform I had and send
ing for anew supply several times, using in
ali about three pounds. At 9 o’clock the
next morning the patient went to sleep.
When he wakened up he acted like a person
dazed, or half foolish. A slimy, stringy se
cretion ran out of his mouth continually,
and lie seemed to have no desire for food
and for a long time would not swallow. He
gradually grew totter, and in about three
weeks’time he was up and about. I knew
the man afterward, doctored him and his
family. He never had another attack, and
some eight years afterward died with con
This is undoubtedly one of the strangest
eases on record, and, in some respects, with
out a parallel. The doctor says he can
verify the facts as stated.
A FINANCIAL NOTE.
Cents and Nickels on Friday, and Bills
and Quarters on Saturday.
From the .Yen' York Evening sun.
“Look at that handful of coppers,” said
an Eighth avenue car conductor.
“Well, I don’t see anything unusual about
them,” observed the scribe.
“Nothing unusual except the quantity,”
the strap-jerker answered. “But that’s the
way it runs. Some days we get nothing
hut cents: sometimes nothing but dimes; in
fact, we can tell pretty nearly before we
start out on each day’s work what kind of
money we will turn in euch trip.”
“How is that? I)o you mean to say that
every passenger carries money of the same
denomination on certain days of the week
“We have found it so. On Fridays we
always look for a large percentage of cents
and nickels. On Saturdays we get mostly
quarters and bills. Then Sundays see us
carry pennies and nickels. On Monday
they either give us bills, or, as is most
likely, 10 cent pieces. Then through the
week the different pieces vary, but we find
at the end of each trip that our pockets con
tain nearly the same sized pieces, and this
will continue the whole day.”
The conductor here went into the ear to
perform his official duties. When he once
more seated himself on the dashboard ho
resumed: “It is funny to observe some of
our passengers when we collect their fares.
A woman will get out her purse, find four
jionnias, nnd then keep me waiting probably
live minutes while she searches for the odd
cent. When she goes home she will send
one of the children out far a cake of yeast
nnd give him a dollar bill to get changed.
Then, again, some old geut will make the
same effort to collect the five separate cents,
and when the boy comes into tne ear with
the Evening Sun will send him out to the
conductor with a one, two, or five dollar
bill to get changed. Getting off here? Well,

most distinguished sons, now a resident or
Dahlonega, is on a visit to his old home.

THE COUNCIL MEETING.
Various Matters of Minor Interest
The City Council held its regular meeting
last night. There was very little important
business before it. The Committee on Ac
counts recommended the payment of the
sum of $12,054 50, the amount of the regu
lar monthly bills, and it was so ordered.
The petition of E. A. Smith for permission
to repair wharf and also to drive piling
in front of same, between Bull and Drayton
streets, was granted. The Committee on
City Lots, recommended that city lot No.
21, 'Western ward, l>e sold by the City Mar
shal in the usual waj', provided $9OO could
be obtained for it. The recommendation
was adopted. The petition of the Standard
Oil Company to be relieved of
certain taxes was refused. The application
of the Savannah Street and Rural Resort,
Railway Company for permission to build
and run their linos of railway through the
following streets, viz., up Wad
ley street to Bay, down Bay to
East Broad, through Jefferson to
Anderson, thence through Sixth street and
through Habersham to Bolton street, was
referred to the Committee on Streets and
I*anes. The petition of the Southern Oil
Company, through L. W. Haskell, for per
mission to connect a six-inch water pipe
with the city water works excited some
discussion, and was finally referred
to the Committee on Water. The petition
of E. F. Davis, a member of the police
force, asking for the refunding of #l2 36,
the amount deducted from his pay on ac
count of sickness, excited some little dis
cussion and was referred to the Committee
on Police. The ordinance permitting owners
to excavate areas, etc., on their prop
erty was passed on its second
leading. Alderman Mell’s resolution to ad
vertise for bids to build culverts on the
Waters road was adopted. A resolution
was also adopted authorizing the Mayor to
purchase suitable instruments for the city
surveyor, providing they do not cost
over $5OO. The city budget of
expenses for the current year
was gone over, and it was shown by the City
Treasurer’s report that thu3 far the sum of
$534,000 had been expended. The Mayor
was authorized to sign the contract between
the Mayor and Aldermen and the Wilcox
& Gibbs Guano Companv anil the executors
of the Waldburg estate m reference to cer

vote on the authorization stood 7 for and 2
The Fords Will Put on the Comedy
for the First Time.
To-night the Fords will present for the
first time their new piece “Saratoga.” This
very successful comedy has never been pre
sented in Savannah tofore and the people of
this city will have an opportunity of
witnessing one of the brightest comedies on
the stage to-day. The scene is laid in Sara
toga ami it is a gixxl as a trip to that resort
to witness the play. The immortal Saratoga
waiter plays an important part but makes
the guests play a more important one to the
delight of the audience and discomfort of
the guest. The scenes are imitations ojj the
places they represent, and one may get a
very fair idea of Saratoga as it is seen for $lO
a day by paying 75c. at the Theatre to-night.
The dialogue is bright and sparkling
ali through, never becoming tiresome
or prosy. Tiie scenes are apt and the situa
tions are artistically dramatic. The Fords
have rehearsed the play thoroughly and are
prepared to put it on in a way that will
please those who see it.

GENERAL RAILWAY NEWS.
Matters of Money and Management
About Various Lines.
The City Council of Knoxville, Tenn., has
decided to suljscribe $500,000 to the stock of
the Knoxville Southern railroad, to be built
in connection with the Marietta and North
Georgia railroad, making an air line from
Knoxville to Atlanta, and to the stock of
Powell’s Valley railroad, to connect with
Louisville and Nashville railroad and Nor
folk and Western.
Supt. Starr has just returned to Augusta
from Spartanburg. He has been there look
ing into the work of running the track of
the Port Royal and Carolina, to conuect
with the Piedmont Air Line and the .Ashe
ville ami .Spartanburg railroad It is con
templated that under the supervision of W.
H. Kriegshaber, assistant engineer of the
Central system, that the work will be con
cluded in two weeks.
The decision of Judge Hutchins in the
case brought by the minority of
the stockholders of the N. E. R.
R. Cos., to enjoin the arrange
ment with Judge W. B. Thomas, reached
Athens Saturday night. The Judge holds
that under the charter the company has not
the power to sell a paid of the road without
the unanimous consent of the stockholders,
and that the power “to lease or sell its road”
in the amendment of 1881, applies to the
whole and not a part of the road. He there
fore orders an injunction to issue enjoining
the N. E. R. R. Cos. from selling or
leasing the northern section of the
road to Judge Thomas, or to any
one else, until the final trial of the case.
In the decision the Judge holds that
the company cannot take the benefits of
the extension and refuse to pay the cost of
the same represented by the second mort
gage bonds. He, therefore, refuses the in
duction as to those bonds. On the question
of champerty ruised in the answer of Judge
Thomas, Judge Hutchins holds that the de
fendants have no right to go into the ques
tion, and that if such contracts exist they
would be held void in any proceeding be
tween the parties to such contracts, and the
existence of such contracts, if they did
exist, would not deprive the plaintiffs of
the right to enforce in the court any rights
they may have.
Oh, give me teeth sound, white and neat.
Oh, give me breath that's pure and sweet,
Oh. give me rosy, healthful gums,
And I will meet whatever comes;
Whatever troubles mav befall.
With SOZODONT I’ll meet them all.
