A warm debate was sprung by the report
If the Committee on Railroads on the hill
b amend the charter of the Marietta and
forth Georgia railroad so as to authorize an
xtension from Marietta to Atlanta. The
pmmittee’s report was adverse to the pas
age of the bill. A strong effort was made
o have it recommitted on the ground that
he friends of the bill had not had fair rep
csentation at the committee meeting. This
ras pressed by Messrs. Weil and Howell, of
fulton, who made earnest efforts to have
he bill recommitted.
Mr. Felton, of Bibb, said that he would
lot enter into a discussion of the hill at this
ime, but he trusted that the members
rould have sufficient confidence in the
Railroad Committee to recommit the bill
pr their consideration. It would lie dis
ourteous to them not to do so, as the Chair
han has expressed his willingness that this
hould be done.
Recommital was opposed by Mr. Arn
leim, of Dougherty, and Mr. Felton, of
Jartow. Mr. Ambeim said that although

BCILDINO OF THE KOAD.
He stat'd that the Western and Atlantic
oad had lieen built by the State, so, also,
lad the Marietta and North Georgia to a
treat extent, although it was now owned by
Irivate parties for the lienefit of the late
oad. The State had donated the
ibor of 350 convicts for a period
i two years and loaned it #Grt, -
tt> on the ground that it was a feeder for
tie Western and Atlantic. The company
[terwurd asked, as a matter of equity, that
his money be donated, and it was done,
rhile other roads, equally as imixatant pi
be general interests of the State, were
truggling for existence and asking for aid
lid sympathy in vain. Thus the parties
twning the road, after having already
jeon greatly benefited by the State’s gen"
rosity were permitted to again gorge them
lives at the State’s exjiense. It, is now as
uming an attitude which condemns the in
crest of the State road, thus imperilling
|ie liest property owned by the State. It is
p-oper, especially under the existing cir-
Umstances, and when it can lie done with
ut injury or injustice to others, that the
Itute should protect its own interests. This
i what governed the committee in reiect
tig the bill, and the same reasons should in
uenco the House to’snow it under.

Dr. Felton, of Bartow, said that thedeath
entence of the bill, which had been pro
tounced by the committee, should be oon
rmed. The State has already done enough
or the Marietta and North Georgia road
ad it was all of doubtful constitutional

ben appropriated contrary to the spirit if

A DUEL IN HIGH LIFE.
Possible Combat Between De Leuville
/-Voin the Xew York Stnr.
London, July 12. —The Metropolitan
police have lieen requested to keep a sharp
lookout for the Mar juis do Leuville and
Prince Eristoff, and to prevent any duel lie
tween them. The Marquis possesses many
and diverse accomplishments, 1 icing an ex
cellent pistol shot, not altogether a bad
poet, a tolerable landscape painter
and a skillful .swordsman. Six feet
four inches high, with long hair
nnd a shower of whiskers, wearing
shoulders broader than John L. Sullivan's
aud No. 4 shoes, the Marquis de Leuville
would attract attention even in Timbuctoo.
He is a living protest against the common
place character of the age. As ho walks
down Piccadilly he looks like a phantom
which one might sec who had dined late
with a tailor. Ho might bean antique beau
who hud stepped out of an old canvas for a
merry flirtation to set in a quiver the tender
hearts of widows from Russia to Murray
Hill. Ho is the widows’ international
Little is known of Prince Eristoff except
that he is a nobleman. He seems to lie an
obscure and inoffensive prince taking his
summer vacation in London, this being the
time of year that the waiters at Baden Ba
den and Vichy get two weeks off. Being a
Russau Prince, it, would naturally be sus
spected that Eristoff was a Nihilist, and an
indigestible soup which he once made for
the (’zar, lent some color to the report con
necting him with the revolutionary move
ment. lie was fully exonerated, however,
it Vicing amply proven that he had no con
ned,ion with underground Russia outside
the kitchen of the White Palace.
The encounter between the noble Marquis
de ljoiiville and Prince Eristoff, in which
the Marquis pursued the Prince and Mrs.
Frank Leslie through Hyde Park on top of
a mail coach like a demon of mythology, is
to-day in London a topic scarcely less im
portant than the Coventry election. The
crack of the Marquis de Lou villa's whip has
been heard around the world. Mrs. Frank
Loslie, a brilliant and beautiful woman,who
abhors notoriety, was very much annoyed
by the incident. She had gone to Europe
to chaperone Miss Ella Bennett, a beautiful
California girl who owns several lodes and
four or fivelionanzas in the Sierras.
Mrs. Leslie herself was so hnndsonio and
blithe that the impression innocently got
abroad in the courts of Europe that. Miss
Bennett was chaperoning Mrs. Leslie. The
fair publisher scored a great, social success
in the literary and art circles of London,
and when the Marquis de Leuville saw her
riding with Prince Eristoff he is said to
have been consumed with jealousy. This is
one explanation of the nearly tragic affray
which took place between two noblemen, in
England, in the nineteenth century, in Hyde
The other explanation given by a club
man, is simple, and less obscure. It is to
the effect that the trouble between the two
gentlemen of the upper class arose from an
unfortunate misunderstanding at cards.
The Marquis de Ijeuville on arising from
the table found that Prince Eristoff owed
him two shillings six pence ha’penny and
two beers. The Prince frankly neknowl
edged the debt, and offered the Marquis his
cheek. As the Marquis had been playing
for seven hours, he naturally felt indignant
at the attempt of the Russian Prince to
evade his financial responsibilities.
In addition to this 1 net the Marquis de
Ixniville happened to lie embarrassed nt the
moment by lieing in debt at the bar for
four glasses of beer, a pinto of pretzels and
a mutton pie. The two gentlemen parted
with cold dignity at the time. When the
Marquis do Leuville subsequently struck
Prince Eristoff with a livery stable whip
and calk'd him a thief and a swindler, it
was a cutting reference to the two shillings
sixpence ha’penny and two beers, out of
which the Prince had so cunningly and in
such a barefaced manner tried to swindle
Of such importance is the honor of each
of these gentlemen that though the death of
either would lie an irreparable less to the
world, they will probably fight a duel.
Prince Eristoff was overcome with rage this
morning. He arose at an early hour, bor
rowed a shirt, polished his own shoes, drew
on his own coat, mechanically gave himself
a “tip,” started down stairs in an absent
minded way two or throe times to answer
the bell, and finally walked out of the hotel
to search for the Marquis de Leuville. He
looked over the registers of the Cheapside
lodging houses; visited the Grosvenor Gal
lery, it being a shilling day; he looked into
the throe-penny burlier shops—all in vain;
nowhere could he find the Marquis de Leu
The Marquis himself arose early, dyed his
hair, squeezed into his tight shoes, put on
his coat, and finishing his toilet, borrowed"
some ear fare and started out to find Prince
Eristoff, whom ho had injured and now
hated. The Marquis visited all the lieer
gardens and cheap restaurants in Loudon,
scrutinizing the waiters to see if ho could
recognize his enemy. Once, though for a
moment only, he thought he recognized the
Prince in a sad man who was grinding an
organ for a Punch nnd Judy show. The
Marquis was wholly mistaken, and walked
back to his lodgings—four miles —greatly
It is said that Prince Eristoff has sent a
challenge to the Marquis de Leuville, and
that the two will fight with pistols, proba
bly in France.
A New Yorker Gives Some Advice In
Regard to Its Treatment.
An old New Yorker, who was brought up
in hotels and restaurants, and knows all
about eating, gave some points to a reporter
of the •Sim tho other day about tho way for
a man to make friends with his stomach.
“There are two big mistakes that almost
all persons make,’’ said he. “One is that
they don’t eat the right things, and the
other is that what they do eat they don’t
eat right. Dyspepsia and ’ indi
gestion are killing more people than
rum ten times over. Why delirium
tremens is joy compared with a hail diges
tion. When a man has the tremens lie’s
happy sometimes, liecnuse ho forgets him
self, but when he’s got dyspepsia his stom
ach is always with him, and he's always
conscious of it. He can’t sleep. Ilis food
doesn't taste right. Boils break out over
him. He’s morbid. All his friends seem to
have deserted him, and some day he goes off
and blows his brains out, and the public and
newspapers say lie had business troubles!
Why, what does a man care for business
troubles when his stomach is all right? If
his stomach is right his head will be clear,
and lie’ll prosper. No glutton or dyspeptic
can stand up alongside of a man with a
sound stomach and a dear head.
“When you got up this morning what did
you do? Went right off to breakfast and
lull'd yourself, with your nose in the papers
unit your mind wandering over the earth.
You don't know what you ate, or how much
or how long it took. For alt the good it did
you, you might as well have swallowed
bacon and coni bread, or turkey and buck
wheat cakes, or uny other mixture that
would take up space iu your stomach. Then,
while you ate, you gulped down ice water
and coffee alternately, and whan you got
through you lit a cigar and went down
town, glad you had done part of the work
of the day.
“That’s not breakfasting. It's loading up
your stomach, and it’s worse for you than if
you hadn’t eaten anything. Then you have
a headache and feel bail, and grow fat, and
wonder why it all is. It’s because you don’t
pay as much attention to your stomach as
you ao to your office tioy. Your stomach
takes its revenge by making you wretched.
To squelch it you jsmr a lot <if liquor into it
and gulp some ice water on that, with a
cracker, or pretzel and a bit of cheese What
sort of a mixture is that? Just imagine the
cheese, and rum and pretzel, and think that
something inside of you has to get away
with that. If you want to drink, drink and
enjoy your drink. Don’t down it nnd fling
things at it when you’ve got it down. Take
a glass of wine and enjoy it, but don’t fling

it into your stomach us you would your fist
into somebody’s eye. Your stomach ought
to lie your friend, but if you go pitching into
if it'll show light, and you may as well un
! deratend that it will get the best of it.
“When you get up in the morning take a
big drink of water. Your system wants
water first. An engine isn’t first fired up
and then some water let into the boiler.
Clean your teeth, and let the water run
from t)ie spigot while you’re doing it.
Then drink a pint of it. Use common
hydrant water; no ice, no salt, no mineral
water. Ordinary water is good enough for
an ordinary healthy man. Keep away from
drugs and pills, and give your stomach a
“If you're in a hurry to read the papers,
read them before breakfast. When you sit
down to the breakfast table be happy: you’re
going to do something pleasant. Breakfast
isn’t a penalty imposed on you or a task to
lie performed us soon as possible, but a pleas
ant, enjoyable occasion. Try and have
somebody talk to you, and talk yourself.
Baugh, Start oft' with fruit—some oranges,
say. Then cat some fish agd stale bread, or
stale rolls or toast. If you want anything
more, eat some meat. Take your time to it
all. I stay at the table for an hour, and eat
nil the time. Don't cat much, but take your
time to it. If you haven’t time, eat less.
The time you spend at breakfast will be
saved over and over again during the day.
“If you’ve been up the night before don’t
take a cocktail or ice water. Try some
broth nnd some tripe if your stomach’s
pretty far gone. When a man’s been off a
little his stomach is raw and inflamed. He
doesn't want to start right off with more
rum. Let him give his stomach a show.
It’ll pay him to. Coddle your stomach in
the morning and it’ll stand up for you at
night. If you gopitohing into it first thing
it will have its revenge.
“Don’t smoke in the morning. Don’t
drink in the morning. If you must smoke
and you must drink, wait until vourstonmeh
is through with breakfast. Try this thing
of starting off fair and square. You can
drink more and smoke more in the evening,
and it won’t tell on it. A man’s stomach is
his friend, and if he'll only treat it kindly
the first half of the day it will show its ap
preciation nnd stick by him at night.”
A FARMER’S CRUEL DEED.
A Cool Confession of Murder That Has
Aroused the Populace.
An Indianapolis (Ind.) special, of July 11,
to the Philadelphia /Vess, gives fuller details
of the following tragedy than were con
tained in the dispatch to the Morning
News. The special says: A telegram from
Jeffersonville states that intense excitement
has been aroused there by a murder com
mitted on Saturday by Jackson Robinson,
a wealthy farmer, his victim lieing Samuel
Hay. Two public meetings have been held
and lynching is openly advocated by citizens.
To-night Gov. Gray telegraphed to the
Sheriff to take such steps as would secure
the safety of the prisoner.
Robinson last night made a confession,
remarkable for the indifference and brutal
ity shown by the murderer. He said: “One
evening last week 1 went to Hays’ house to
try anu adjust our differences. No one was
at homo but Hays’ sister and mother, and
they us"d such language to me that 1 struck
the old woman in the back. She is 75 years
old and partly paralyzed. I also struck her
daughter. I thought of the matter until
Saturday morning, when I decided to end it
for all time. Rinding iny double-barrelled
shotgun, I sprang into my wagon and drove
toward the Hays’ homestead. I met Hays
and his sistor on the road about 100 yards
from their home. I told Hayathat f had
come to kill him and if he hairany prayers
to say, be quick about it. His sister
screamed and pleaded with me to spare her
brother’s life, and throw her arms about his
neck as if to shield him from my aim. Her
entreaties failed to change my purpose.
“Placing the gun upon his sister’s shoulder
I pressed the trigger aud saw him fall back
with seven bullets in his heart. The blood
spurted out over her white dress and he fell
back into her arms. Not being positive that
he was dead 1 went over to his mother’s
house and sat down on the porch to reload
my gun. In a few moments his sister came
iip crying and said I had killed her brother.

In the Court of Common Pleas the case of
Wylie Malone and others for the recovery
of the estate of Thomas Malone was called
yesterday morning. The action is by sum
mons and complaint. The estate in suit
was that of Mr. Thomas Malone, who, ac
cording to the theory of the plaintiffs, left
Camden at the age of 15 years, and went to
the West Indies. Ho afterwards returned
to Charleston where, in the law business
mid other vocations, lie accumulated a for
tune of about 840,000. He died in 1864, nnd
in the absence of heirs it is proposed to
escheat the property to the State. Since
that time the property in the hands of
the administrator has increased, it is
thought, to about $79,000. It is now claimed
that the property rightfully belongs to the
heirs of Wylie Malone, deceased, who, it
will lie the effort of the plaintiffs to prove,
was the brother of Thomas Malone. The
plaintiffs will endeavor to show that soon
after the death of Thomas Malone his
brother made certain arrangements to insti
tute legal proceedings to establish his right
as the heir. It was only, however, in 1882
that he succeeded, when he secured the ser
vices of Capt. E. H. Clarke and Gen. John
D. Kennedy, of Camden. By agreement tho
suits of all interested will lie heard in the
Common Pleas of Charleston county. Tho
defense, it is understood, is based on the fact
that Wylie Malone is not, the brother of
Thomas Malone. Tho plaintiffs, among
other questions of fact, allege that
Thomas Malone was born in Kershaw coun
ty, ami the defendants hold that he was a
native of the Island of Jamaica. The case
will he one of considerable local interest,
both from the amount involved and the pe
culiar nature of the suit.
Advice to Mothers.
Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup should
always be used when children are cutting
teeth. It relieves the little suffer at once; it
produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving
the child from pain and tho little cherub
awakes as “bright as a button.”
It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allays all pain, re
lieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the
best known remedy for diarrhoea, whether
arising from teething or other causes. 25
cents a bottle.

Wrenched His Back.
Lyndonville, Orleans’County, |
N. Y., April 2, 1885. (
About a year ago I imprudently stepped
off the Hudson River cars while they were
in motion. In trying to save myself from a
fearful fall I wrenched my back terribly.
The next day I could not walk, and I suf
fered pain from my neck to my heels. Va
rious applications wore made, but nothing
which was done abated my suffering. Being
anxious to get up and attend to business, 1
determined to place three Allcock’s Po
rous Plastebs, one above the other, on
my back. In about an hour and a half they
caused considerable itching The pain and
soreness sensibly decreased, and I rested
pretty well that night. The next morning
the itching began to be quite severe under
the plasters. To get some relief, I had my
hack well rubbed crosswavs over the
Piasters. I was surprised within two hours
afterwards to find the pain and soreness
almost gone. I stayed in bed that day; and
t he morning afterwards I got up and attend
ed to business. O. Y. Pktt.man.

~GREGOME.—Died, near Savannah, Oa„ on
the 21st of June. 1887, Thomas Hutson Gkego
rie, youngest son of the late Dr. Thomas H.
Gregorie, of Grahamville, Beaufort county, S.
C., in the 28th year of his age.
He had just entered on the full responsibilities
of his life, and by his manly and upright deport
ment had won the confidence and esteem of all
who knew him, and was cheered by the bright
prospects of an honorable and useful life.
Around him were entwined the tenderest ties of
domestic love, and the shining virtues of son
and brother will be embalmed in those hearts
which watched him in infancy, followed him in
youth and were looking with pride and affection
on the bright promises of manhood. Cut off
suddenly in the vigor of life, he has left a large
family circle to mourn his departure with an
anguish for which the world hath neither re
pression nor consolation.
“Death rides in every passing breeze
And lurks in every flower.
Each season has its own disease.
Its peril every hour.''
