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.

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 from them. 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. Ao'iel ft Schaul THR MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1887. HYDROPHOBIA CURED. 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 sumption.” 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, good night.” Local Personal. Col. W. S. Basinger, one of Savannah’s, most distinguished sons, now a resident or Dahlonega, is on a visit to his old home.

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. Weather Indications.

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.
