Small change was an unknown commod

a premium of 10c. on the dollar for change

Capt. George Council, one of Sumter's

Passengers on the Georgia road report
that a serious shooting affray occurred at

of the sale of some cotton and the weight.
The owner of the cotton was struck down

a pistol in his hand and opened fire on his

At Louisville a few’ days ago E. W. 51c-
Carty had his house broken open. The
house is tolerably high off the ground, and
the burglars took barrels and stood upon
them and opened a window. They took out
everything from the bureau drawers and
scattered them on the floor,and went through
everything in the bedroom. They were
evidently in search of money, for if they
took anything it could not be discovered.
Thu tracks indicated that a woman and child
did the work. Doubtless hlio put the child
in the window, and she watched while it
searched for money. It was a daring piece
of work, for the window entered is at the
front of the house and near the street. There
is no clue as to who the parties are.

The Chinese of Atlanta go to Sunday
school, eleven being in one class. Mrs. E.
J. Sanger, who lives at 241 Rawson
street, went, to Atlanta about two years
ago from Boston. There she was connected
with a Congregational church. Dr. Mc-
Kenzie, the pastor, told the members of the
Sunday school there that while a good deal
of money was being spent in sending mis
sionaries to China, Chinamen were living
in heathen darkness right around them, and
he thought it w’ould cost very little to do
missionary work among the Chinese in
Boston. At this suggestion the ladies of
that church went to work and soon organ
ized a Sunday school of eighty-two China
men, who attended regularly and learned
English rapidly. When Mi’s. Sanger came
to Atlanta she found that nothing of the
kind had lieen done. She went around to
the laundries and soon got about all of them
in a Sunday school class at the Church of
Americus Recorder: Yesterday morning
we received a copy of the Parijii- Adver
tiser, a paper published at Honolulu, the
capital of the Sandwich Islands. It men
tions the recent arrival in port of the United
States steamer Vandalia, seventeen guns.
The vessel carries a complement of 210 men,
not including officers, and among (he list of
names published is t hat of Cadel, George K.
Cooper, of this city. In a private letter
from him, written since the arrival
of his vessel there, he speaks in
glowing terms of the beautiful island in the
far-off southern sea, and compares it to an
earthly Eden. During the past twelve
months lie has traveled more than iKI.OdO
miles over the trackless ocean, being thirty
seven days on his last voyage between Cal

land was sighted or a vessel of any descrip
tion passed. The Vandalia will make a
lengthened stay at Honolulu, after which

Albany Xnrs and Advertiser: The ten
dency towards testing the value of new ag
ricultural products in this section with the
end in view of further crop diversification
is very encouraging. The watermelon and
bay crops have lieen a coiniiaratively recent
addition to the inarketanle uredacts of
Dougherty, and the success of the experi
ment is niost gratifying. Other plants are
of equally great value as money crops if we
could but establish the conditions favorable
to their utilization. Broom corn would pay
handsomely If someone would only display
enterprise'enough to establish u broom fac
tory. The profitable operation of the fac
tory is removed from all questions of doubt
by the success of the undertaking in other
localities. There is one other plant to which
the News ansi Advertiser desires to call
the attention of our people; that is the cas
tor bean. It grows most luxuriantly and
fruita must profiflcally In this climate and
soil. There is every reason to believe that
it would prove ajiaying crop if the AUiany
Oil Mill would prepare to extract the oil
from the beans. The same presses now used
by them would answer to press out the oil,
but a different huller would be necessary.
The cost of the additional machinery to
make the castor oil, would tie inconsidora
lile, and prove Of great advantage to the
company. The mill could then crush its
supply of cotton seed, and after its exhau*
tion could work in castor beans. The Wes
tern Castor Oil Mills pay 81 per bushel for
the beans, from which they extract one and
a half gallons of oil worth fully $1.40 per

the Reddish school house, a place about six
miles west of here, a long log house, stand
ing in almost unbroken pine woods. No
liotii-e of the removal was previously given,
whereas the law requires a publication of
such notice for four weeks. The first in
timation I.awtey had of the removal was a
written notice of an election to be held at
the school house. In pursuance of it an
election was held on Sept. 21 to nominate a
man for County Commissioner. Two gen
tlemen were voted for, and each received 16
votes. Now, at the preceding election 116

Just ten years ago Friday, Sept. 23,
the first death from yellow fever occurred
in .Jacksonville, Ellis Hull being the victim.
Mr. Hull had been over to Fernandina,
where the disease was raging, and came
back to Green Cove Springs, where he re
mained until the disease developed, when
ho was brought to Jacksonville for medical
treatment under the impression that he was
suffering from simple malarial fever, but
after a brief illness he died with black
vomit. The late’ lamented Dr. Welford,
wlio afterward went to Fernandina in re
sjionse to the calls for aid became a victim
to the disease himself, dying only a short
time afterward. From the death of Mr.
Hull, which occurred in what, was then the

continued to spread until some time in No

A Mystery of a Sleeping Car Unblush
Prom Itrake's Tra vetler't Magazine.
“Queerest thing happened on my car
t'other day that I ever heard of,” said a
sleeping!-ar conductor on the New York
Central. “Coming into the city we were a
littlelate.au’ didn't reach town until T':3o
p. ni., when we should have been in by 6.
One of my passengers was a rather elderly
and infirm woman with long, sallow face,
dull, sunken eyes, a languid air, and tawny
hair that was too straight to be pretty. She
was plainly dressed and too homely and
common to’ attract any attention from the
drummers who sat near her. All afternoon
she kept inquiring if we’d get into New York
on time, and appeared very nervous about it.
Finally I told ner we couldn’t get in till
nearly 8 o’clock, and then she said she want -
ed the tise of the stateroom about half
an hour and didn’t want to be disturbed.
Well, I didn’t pay any more attention to
her for soinp time, but just before we arrived
at the Central station I passed through the
car, and sitting there in the seat where the
old woman had been was a girl—as pretty
and bright a girl as I ever saw in my
life, with a round, creamy face, bright eyes
and golden ringlets, and she was beauti
“ ’Homething wrong here,’ says I to
myself, ‘and I'm going to find out what it
is. So I approached her and asked to see
her train check. She showed it to me and
it was all right.
“ ‘Do you know what has become of the
old party who had this berth last night f I
“‘I don’t know anything about any old
party,’ she snapped out as I went away.
“ ‘Some mystery here,’ says I to myself.
‘There’s been a murder, or disappearance,
or an attempt to ride two people on one
ticket, or something, and I’m going to find
out what it is. ’ I hunted all through the
car, and even went forward into the passen
ger coaches, but not a trace could I get of
my old woman jiassenger. By this time I
was thoroughly excited, and as the train
drew into the station I called the company’s
detective, pointed the young woman out to
hitn and told him the strange facts.
“ ‘Look it up,’ says I to him. ‘There’s
been foul play of some sort, sure.’
“The detective accompanied the young
woman to a carriage, and I saw him talk to
her. She laughed, showing a rosy mouth
and pearly teeth, and then Tie laughed until
I thought he would fall to pieces.
“ ‘What’s the trouble!’ says I, as her car
riage drove away.
“ ‘Trouble!’ echoed the detective. ‘There’s
no trouble, except that you are a confounded
idiot. Can’t a pretty young ballet dancer
make her toilet on your car, when she’s
pushed for time, and has to get right from
the train to the theatre, without you sus
pecting her of murder and insulting her!”
