more has been brought to market thus far
this year than for a number of years past.
Chattanoogans are arranging to build a
dummy railroad from the nearest point on
the Western and Atlantic road to Catoosa
Springs. This would make the springs more
convenient of access, and increase their
popularity as a resort.
The heavy rain which fell on last Tues
day night caused a break in the milidam of
Knox Proa., near Aloova, and their flue
pond was reduced to the run of the creek.
About forty feet of the dam was carried
away, which is quite a heavy loss.
In Clarke county the injury to crops by
the rain-and high water is fully as serious
as thought on lottom land, but uplund corn
and cotton are not seriously impaired. Our
farmers will reap much better crops than
they did last year, in spite of this drawback.
The saw mill of M. A. Walker & Cos.,
located in Pond Town district, Dodge

Ben Murphy, a colored lad about 13 years
old, suffered a serioua accident on Saturday
afternoon last while attempting to jump
from a flat car on the Amoskeag tram road,
a few miles from Eastman. The boy jumped
from the train while it was in motion, and
bv some means fell tieucath the ponderous

below the knee joint.
Quite a curious incident happenod in tho

week. Just one week before he hail pur
chased a lot of eggs, and had them in a
bowl in one of his front windows. That
morning he heard the ohirpiug of a chicken,
and investigating, found some of the eggs
hatching. Four chickens were hatched out,
and one of them is now alive and thriving.

There is said to he a movement on foot to
close the barrooms of Koine on Jan. 1 next.
As is already known several of the bar
rooms have licenses from the city until
next April, but the State license* expire on
Jan. 1. The ail voce, tee of prohibition say
that the saloons cannot run after the first cif
next year without violating the law, ns it
will be impossible to have State licenses
granted after January.
The recent rains have, of course, dam
aged the growing ootton crop* in Dougherty
county, more or less, and in some fields con
siderable injury has ensued, but the pru
dent conservative farmers estimate the in
jury as slight There will be, beyond |>er
adventure, a fair crop harvested, and Al

maturity some ten days.
The steamer Stewart came near meeting
with a serious accident one day last week on
her return trip from Abbeville. At a point
near CJrady’s shoals the boat struck on a
rock, knocking a hole in the hull under the
bow, through which the water began to pour
at a rapid rate, hut fortunately it was aooA
discovered and the punqis were put to work.
The water was thus kept checked until a
plunk could be nailed over the hole and tho

They then swam over the bars nnd into the

level of the water that they scriuiibled into
It. To-day when parties visited tho farm
they found that tho waters had recoded,
ieavingthe cows high and dry on top of tho
hay. They h. 1 -i ot this during the
days of the overflow, and were apparently
quite contented with their elevated station.

on Tuesday by beating and kicking to death
Ia 7-year-dld step-daughter, named Laura
j Foreman. He got into a frenzy over some

less and brutal, as narrated by the helpless
mother of the child and wife of the mur

desist and not kill her child.
Elberton Gazette: It commenced raining
here in the afternoon oil Thursday of last
week, and with the exception of short in
tervals between showers, has continued to
rain until this, Tuesday morning. Tho
crops ot bottom lands luive nearly all been
under water since Friday last, and it is
thought they will boa total loss. The dam
age to crops in this county is estimated at
from $50,000 to SIOO,OOO. On Friday a
miniature cyclone passed a few miles liolow
Elberton, blowing down houses, trees,
fences, and destroying the crops in its track.
No person was injured that we have heard
of. The loss is very heavy upon those
whose erojws were ou bottom lands.
Wednesday Comptroller Gonoral Wright
received digests from the following coun
ties: DoKalb county returns $3,801,810, an
increase of $30,034; Heard county returns
$1,001,013, an increase of $3,044; Oconee
county returns $1,021,005, an increase of
$55,454; Burke county returns $2,885,031,
an increase of $111,408; Fannin county re
turns $520,033, an increase of $10,395; Cher
okee count y returns $1,9:50,829 a decrease of
$29,227; Whitfield county returns $2,231,-
414, a decrease of $131,848; Hancock coun
ty returns $2,655,303, a decrease of $20,019.
The aggregate increase of the eight coun
ties yesterday was only $24,141, which, ad
ded to the $3,483,777 previously noted,
makes a total increase to date of $3,507,918.
The hard rains of tho jmst few days have
damaged the corn crop of Lincoln county to
the amount of 50 per cent. All the bottom
lands have been revered with water for
three days, consequently the crops on the
water courses are completely ruined. Tho
Savannah river at Lincoln is higher than it
has ever been known to be in years, and
Little river is seven feet higher than it has
ever risen liefore. Dill’s mills, on this river,
have been completely washed uivay, and all
the other manufactories seriously damaged.
The rains also damaged the cotton crop to a
considerable extent by washing and beat
ing, and three chimneys in town were un
dermined by the rains and fell. Up to this
time the crop prospects in the county for
the year had never lieen better, but the
rains have played havoc with them, and the
farmers are fooling very blue.
Covington Star: An almost unprece
dented rain-storm has prevailed in this sec
tion, as well as throughout the entire State,
since last Wednesday evening. Over 16
inches of water have fallen at Covington up
to this writing, Monday, with no prospect
for an early abatement. Tho country is
completely flooded, and great damage has
been done the crops, bridges, and other
property. Tho streams are higher thau
they liuve ever been known before, even by
“the oldest inhabitant." The crops adja
cent to tho rivers have been submerged for
several days, and are completely ruined.
We cannot particularize, but all our poo
ple having bottoms lands near the rivers in
cultivation, have been grout sufferers,
and some have lost all their
crops. The louses in Covington are not very
heavy, and consist mainly mtbe destruction
of foot, bridges, washed, streets and side
walks, leaky houses and flooded cellars. The
Georgia railroad is a heavy sufferer in our
county, and it will be some time before the
damage can be repaired. T(ie culvert over
Cornish creek, between Covington and
Alcova, is washed out, with about 150 feet
of the embankment, which is 70 feet high at
that point. All travel lias been temporarily
suspended, and we have had no mails from
Augusta since Friday. A transfer of mails
and passengers was effected on Monday
morning. It is impossible at this time
(Monday) to form a correct estimate of the
losses iii this county. Wo do not believe
they will fall far short of SIOO,OOO.

A young man, seemingly from the rural
districts, went into a saloon in Palatku and
was Lintcred by one of tiic inmates to pluv
a game of pool. The gentleman agreed and
six games were played, all of which the
countryman lost. He then started out and
was asked it he wouldn’t take something,
which invitation was accepted. Again the
man started for Hie door, but was asked by
the mixer of drinks if he did not in
tend paying for the games of
jksil ho had lost. Tlie answer was that tie
did not owe anything. The barkeeper liecamo
wnitliy and insisted upon payment, but
without effect. The young man said he
was going home, aud would not pay for the
games, as'he had not wagered anything;
that he thought they were playing for fun.
By this time tlie liquor man’s blood was at

many cotton buyers are under obligations
to factors in Savannah for favors received
tho present ns well as in past years, which
favors must lie reciprocated by sending
them enough cotton to moot the demands
made of thorn. This obligation settled they
will bo free to dispose of the balance of the
crop which passes through their liund3 ns

see fit to ship through ports offering the
greatest advantages for them. Savannah
is prepared—Jacksonville, though being as
above said, the natural seaport of Florida,
is not. Sim Ims no cotton men, sho has no
warehouses nor compresses.
At Jacksonville Thursday some laborers

A Detroit, Mich., special says: “It now'
appears that Hon. Charles W. Jones, the
distinguished Floridian, who has mode De
troit his home for the past two years, has
either suddenly become convinced that it is
wise to practice economy iu liis old age, or
has about reached the end of his financial
tether. When Senator Jones came to De
troit he engaged sumptuous and high-priced
apartments at tho Russell House, which lie
continued to occupy and pay for regularly
*o long as he was able to make
sight drafts monthly on the Fed
eral Treasury for his Senatorial sti
pends. When his official shoes were pulled
off by Gov. Ferry and placed on the feet of
Gen. Finley, the ex-Sonator began to grow
less prompt in the payment of his hotel
bills. Ho was dunned and dunned, and
finally squared accounts with a check drawn
by M. W. O’Brien, cashier of the Preple's
Saving Bank, and also one of the trustees
of the estute of the late Francis Palms,
whose daughter's name has frequently been
linked by gossips with that of the
portly ex-Senator, and rumors of his
infatuation for the young heiress spread
broadcast over tlie country. It transpires
that at the present time the ex-Senator is a
debtor to tlie Russell House for himself and
son two months’ board, and that lie has been
frequently reminded that payment of the
sum due would be appreciated, lie has paid
no attention to their demands, and to-night
it is announced that he has transferred linn
self and bis son and their bags and baggage
to the Griswold House, in which accommo
dations are quoted at less than half the
rate which tlie ex-Senator lias been
promising to pay, and where he
will occupy room CO, second floor,
back. The change is looked upon by the
ex-Senator’s friends as a big drop for the
man who claimed to have the best part of
Florida under his thumb, even though the
Griswold ranks among hotels of the first
class. Some time ago it was reported that
all of Mr. Jones’ available funds consisted
of three SI,OOO United States bonds, and
that he had hypothecated them for his
maintenance, which will probably account
for the O’Brien check.”
A SLICK OFFICIAL.
He Keeps the Proper Incumbent of an
From the Pensacola (Fla.) Commercial.
A story of official malfeasance is rejwrtod
from the north end of tho county, the
charges in which, if they can lie proved, will
place the offender iu a bad predicament. It
will be rememliered by the readers of the
Commercial that a little bit terness had lieen
engendered at Bluff Springs by the appoint
ment of Camoron A. Moreno, Esq., as Post
master at that place, aud it is in that con
nection that the strange tale runneth.
Mr. Moreno, who very recently received
unofficial notive of his appointment, waited
in vain for many days for his commission,
having forwarded lus bond and other neces
sary papers iu tho promises; tho failure of
the paper to arrive, of course, prompted
him to write to an intimate friend in this
city, who replied, stating that the commis
sion, as ho hail every reason to know, liad
been forwarded. Strange to say, Mr. Mo
reno never received tho reply; lie wrote to
another frieud here asking him to see the
gentleman first written to and inquire as to
whether or not a reply to his letter had
lieen mailed. The first gentleman then
thought ho smelled a mouse, if not a long
tailed, large-sized rat, and, acting upon his
suspicions, he wrote another resilient of
Bluff Springs, enclosing a letter to Mr.
Moreno, which the latter received all right.
He was informed that it was barely possi
ble that his mail was being withheld by the
then Postmaster V. D. Williams, that his
commission and tlie letter formerly written
by the gentleman were probably then at the
Bluff Spring office, and that a little deci
sion on the part-of himself would doubtless
bring forth the documents. Mr. Moreno
then went to the post office and informed
Williams that he had authentic information
to the effect that someone had been tam
pering with his mail, mid that he intended
finding out who it was; that his commission
hid beau lor warded aud someone had done
away with it. A few minutes afterward
Williams went down to Moreno’s place of
business and gave him two letters, one con
taining his commission, the other the reply
of the gentleman in this city to whom he
had first written. Williams' explanation of
the delay in delivery was that lie often
shook the mail matter out on the floor, and
that probably the two packages had bonne and
into a trash pile under tho counter, where
he had found them.
A now phase appeared upon the whole
matter. When Mr. Moreno glanced at his
commission lie found that it boro date of
Oct. 20, 1884. Ho immediately sat down
and wrote the Postmaster General, asking
an explanation, and he was informed that
he had been appointed to tlie office on Oct.
20, 1884: that the oath of office blank bond,
etc., liad been forwarded, and that iu a
failure to hear from him, several letters ask
ing an explanation of his refusal to act
in the matter had been written him. Not
one of those was received by Mr. Moreno.
It appears that in 1884 Mr. Moreno was
ail applicant for the office, but never hear
ing that his application had borne fruit, lie
quietly paid no more attention to the mat

One evening, not long ago, there was ar
rested in this city on old gentleman of po
sition and cheery habits. Tho policeman
said he liad found the old gentleman on the
street very drunk. The complaint was en
tered against him, but, as lie seemed to be
able to get about, he was released on his re
cognizance and si-nt homo in a hack, which
be payed for with great alacrity. When
his case came up iu court the only witnesses
summoned to prove his condition were the
policeman aim the old family servant of tho
accused, a faithful and devoted retainer.
The policemen bad given his testimony
which w.is unqualifiedly to (lie fact of the
old gentleman's intoxication. Then tho
old servant wns called to the stand. There
was a mingled expression of indignation on
his countenance, lie testified flatly, to the
surprise of the court room, that, tlnj old
mail wus sober when he canio home. Tho
prosecuting attorney proceeded to question.
“You say that Mr wus sober when
ho came home?”

“And he was perfectly sober?”
“What did he say when you put him to
“He said good night."
"What was it? Toll us exactly what he
said, every word.”
“Uesaidii* how I was to wako and call
him early for lie was to be Queen of tho
The court-room roared. And In spite of
the old servant’s very (xisitivo testimony,
the accused was convicted and fined.
