Henry Johnson, a young white man
about 18 or 19 years of age, was arrested at
Rome Wednesday night, charged with hav
ing committed a criminal assault upon the
seven-vear-old daughter of Pierce McGin

the father of the girl are true the outrage
is one that demands severe punishment.
Johnson, however, stoutly proclaims inno
cence. Johnson has taken considerable
stock in the Salvation Army, and was ar
rested at the headquarters during the prog
ress of a meeting.
Thursday night when the local freight
train from Montgomery was half a milo
from Bronwood the engineer saw some
thing in the shape of a person lying on the
track and was too near it to stop. On ar
riving at Bronwood he examined his engine
and found a piece of human flesh on the
wheel, and went back where he saw the ob
ject on the track, and found a negro ter
ribly inangled, so much so that he could not
be identified, and it is not known who the
negro is. The impression of some is that he
had been foully dealt with and placed on
the track to cover up the crime.
C. L. Scott, who resides one and a
half miles southwest of Hart well, and whose
plantation is on as poor land considered as

Betton, of Cuthbert, sailed out from the
mouth of the Potomac river on board the
United States frigate Brandywine, for
Havre, France, to carrv Gen. Lufavette
home from his last visit to the United

At twlumhus Thursday Dr. W. L. Bul

of a young man, Mr Bright, of Montgom

each eye of the patient within two weeks’

and is frequently mistaken for cataract bv
inexperte. A cataract proper is the crystal
lim lens of the eye tieoomlng opaque, and in
treatment the lens is removed, necessitating
the use of cataract glasses, but in the case
of n pterygium being an outside growth no

the parts are healed, unless the growth has
obscured the vision. In that case a slight
For several days past a man named Mid
dleton Franklin, hailing from Carolina,
near Granitevi He, has been on a rockless
frolic at Augusta. In all his carousals he
was accompanied by a young man named
Til Johnson, and the two very often got
‘‘blind" together. Thursday night Frank
lin ended up at nis room in
Rubenstein’s wagon yard in a near
ly helpless condition. He claims to
have been roblied of *3O and a package of
gold dust while there, and had Johnson ar
restod the next flay on suspicion, stating
that the latter was th only l lerson who had
entered his apartments. Johnson is in jail,
yut strongly proclaims his innocence.
Master Theo Foley, of Columbus, has a
gokt named “Dant."' Dant is generally a
rerM, sensible gout, but he was a little off
yesterday, as he drank too much beer the

about the store, and, when no one is looking,
helps-himself to anything he fancies.
Wednesday evening he found a tubnl waste
beer in the bar, and b*>k a drink that is
often heard of but rarely imbibed throe
fingers in a washtub. While the effects "f

into a red-nosed toper.

A strange feature about the suicide of
Samuel W. Smith, which occurred at Jas

Bennett, dreamed the whole fiecurrence.
At 12 o’clock in thq, night Bennett dreamed
that he saw the hanging. He went to

The Crescent City saw mill will be in
operation in about two weeks. The pro

way of a floating saw mill. It is the first of
the kind ever introduced into Florida. It
consists of an immense lighter, or barge, 40
feet wide by 80 feet in length and 6 feet
deep, lira wing 11 inches of water. This
craft has taken over 100,000 feet of lumber
in its construction, will have two floors and
will be covered with an iron roofing, pre
senting the a ppeurance of an ordinary house
floating upon the water. When perfected
it will be replete with machinery for cutting
lumber of any description.
Robert M. Ray, of Dade City, was taken
down with something like the rheumatism
in his right leg in April, 1886. Soon after
wards caries of the fibula set in. and he
suffered the most excruciating agony, and
everything known to medical science was
done for him until March last, when it was
decided that a surgical oiieration would
either kill or cure, and that he would die in
a short while unless something was done.
I)r. Robert W. Westmoreland, of Atlanta,
was telegraphed for ami came the next
morning and removed the entire fibula in
the afternoon. The oiieration lasted ono
hour and fifteen minutes, and the patient,
lining kept, unconscious by anaesthetics dur
ing the time, required proof to believe that
the work was done after he hecame con
scious. He is now able to walk by the aid
of a cane, and his health is perfect.

IT WAS A FAIRY TAL3-
Why a Certain Romantic Yarn Could
Not Deal With Facts.
Boggy Bottom, Fla., Oct I.—ln your
issue of Sept. 23 you give a column and a
half extract from the Philadelphia Press,
entitled “Life Closely Called, An Officer's
Narrow Escape from a Cuban Gallows, as
the personal experience of the writer, Al
bert Delyiur, covering a most exciting ac
count of hair-breadth escapes. Commis
sioned by the Federal government to gather
information in Mississippi, the hero escapes
from that .State in November, 1861, with
two ounces of Confederate lead in his per
son, to Key West, Fla. Strangely, he ex
pcriences no inconvenience, discomfort or
pain from these two ounces of Confederate
lead, hut thirsts for new adventure, which
soon presents itself in the attempt to gather
information of a blockade-runner that had
Imen chased into “Cumberland Harbor,” by
a Federal cruiser.
Accompanied by a master’s mate of the
navy, this Capt. Albert DeLeur, takes a
naval gig, and is landed on the shores of
Cuba in close proximity to “Cumberland
Harbor.” The indiscretion of the master's
mate soon gets them into trouble, which re
sults in their capture, arrest, trial and con
demnation as adventurers attempting to
join the Cuban insurgents, and, finally their
miraculous escape from the Cuban prison
through the indirect agency of the cook, a
negro woraon whom the master's mate hail
captured by his wiles in the belief of his
marrying her, if she would effect their es
Now let's examine the matter aside from
the excitement and romance of the expedi
tion. The recent addition of two ounces of
lead to the avordupois of the hero seems
highly improbable to better fit him for new
adventure, but according to the narrative
he thirsts for and undertakes it. The Cuban
insurrection began in October, 1868, while
this exciting incident occurred November,
1861. The Captain is clearly previous by
seven years ! There is no Cumberland Har
bor in Cuba, no such port in the Queen of
Antilles. The United States navy has never
hail a frigate called the San Jacinto.
The probability of the crafty and cautious
Spaniards permitting such a free and unre
strained access to men condemned to death
as Capt. Albert DeLeur describes is not
borne out by the history of this peculiar
Writers of such romance, like professional
liars, should recollect that they should bo
possessed of the best of memories. The
whole narrative is the flimsiest kind of fic
tion. Turn the microscope of fact upon it
and it becomes the most threadbare kind of
trash; tried in the crucible of truth, it dis
solves into complete nothingness and leaves
the hero a subject of ridicule. Pert.
REVIVING THE RETICULE.
The Convenient Little Receptacle of
100 Years Ago.
New York, Oct. I.—lt is understood that
oi>era glass bags and the dainty little plush
pockets for handkerchiefs that our belles
have for the past year been wont to carry
about with them are to be superseded this
season by the regular old-fashioned reticules
that our grandmothers used to delight in.
And, indeed, this fashion will certainly
prove a charming one in many ways. A
fashionable women nowadays is obliged
to take so many indispensable articles alxiut
with her that it is absolutely necessary to
have some convenient receptacle in which to
stow them so that they shall be near at
hand. Ordinary dress pockets are becom
ing almost obsolete, principally because
modistes will persist in putting them in such
out of the way places t'uat it is impossible
to gain a of-ess’to them. Who has not seen
some unfortunate woman in the midst of a
crowded assembly, a theatre, or a street car
for instance, rise from her seat and perform
all sorts of acrobatic contortions in the vain
attempt to find her pocket and extricate
therefrom her handkerchief or smelling
liottlef Everybody will surely welcome our
grandmother’s reticules as a pleasing change,
tif course one must possess as many reti
cules as gowns, satin and silk ones to match
evening toilets and others of more sober
cast for shopping purposes. They may be
ornamented with lace and flowers or fur
and feathers, and they may contain any
thing from a batiste handkerchief to the
latest design in enamel bon-bon boxes. At
any rate, every woman of tasto will admit
tiiat from an [esthetic point of view any
kind of reticule, even one of the plainest
pattern will be preferable to those monstros
ities in leather called shopping bags, and
which are to be placed in the same category
as ulsters and rubber clanks.
