The safe in the Buena Vista and EUaville
railroad depot at EUaville was broken open
Monday night, and about SBOO abstracted
i herefrom. Entrance to the building was ef
fected through the front door, which w-as
vary iusecureiy bolted upon the inside, it only
requiring but a slight push from without
to force it open. The safe fastened
with a eombmation lock, and was
considered secure. The door was
found unlocked, which pro veil conclusively
that the work was done hv a professional
cracksman, or else by someone acquainted
with the combination. Of the amount
stolen about SHSO belonged to Morgan Mc-
Michael, who had deposited it there for safe
keeping until morning. The balance be
longed to the railroad company and private
parties. A large number of valuable notes
were also carried oft along with the cash
drawer. There is not the slightest clew as
to who the robber was.

It looks as t hough the success of the Pied
mont Exposition is to have strong opposi
tion in the matter of transportation facili
ties. The Atlanta fjtreet Railroad Com-
i pany, controlling all of the lines running to
j the grounds, has raised its fare from 50. to
I 10c., and die passenger trains of the Itich
; ninnd and Danville railroad will not be
I allowed to come within nearly a half mile
| of the union passenger depot, which is the
I centre of !1..- city. These trains to the
I grounds by the Richmond and Danville will
j have to pul! lip at tbe West Point depot, a
• walk of fifteen or twenty minutes from the
| union depot, l'he Georgia railroad controls
j tiio right of way into tiie depot, and Maj.
j Green is of l.he opinion Ihat there would Is’
I great danger iu someone being killed if a
crowd was allowed to gather about the
! depot. The management i* trying to induce
Col. Peters, of the Street Car Company, to
leave his rates where they were, but so far
lias not succeeded, and an effort is being
made to convince Maj. Green, that there
would be no danger in allowing the passen
ger trains of tiie Richmond and Danville to
run to the depot.
Monday night soon after the train left
Brunswick, Conductor Dick Harris, who
was in charge, went through the coaches
collecting tickets. In the sleeping car he
came upon a gentleman who handed him a
pass. The conductor read the pass, aud, as
is the custom, made a qiemoranda of it. It
was issued to a member of the Georgia leg
islature, but for some cause Conductor Har
ris suspected that the man holding it was
not the one to whom it was issued, and un
der promise to return the ticket the
next morning, retained it. All during the
night the conductor’s mind was upon
tiie ticket. He remembered having handled
it bofore, but could not recall tiie place, At
Locust Grove a member of the t Legislature,
whom Conductor Harris knew, boarded the
train, and said the man holding tiie pass
was not tiie legislator named on it. The pass
was taken up and the traveler asked to pay
sll 20 fare. He asserted that he did not
have the money, and immediately after tiie
train reached Atlanta the conductor caused
his uriy.st. The passenger induced the officer
to bring him into tiie city, where he secured
the money and paid the fare.

A MAGUEY PLANTATION.
An Enterprise in Orange JCounty-
Properties of the Plant.
from the Orlando (Fla.) Reporter.
Perhaps but lew people have heard that
Mr. John A. Pierce, of this city, has started
a maguey plantation in Orange county, and
among those few there are, perhaps, fewer
who know what maguey is good *for. We
will endeavor to enlighten them on these
The maguey plant (pronounced mah
gay-ee) Agave Americana, very much re
sembles our common century plant, with
the exception, perhaps, that it does not at
tain as large a size. The chief characteris
tics of the maguey plant is that it produces
the celebrated pulque, or octi, a favorite
drink with the Mexicans. Pulque is ob
tained from the young and tender flower
bud, which is of great size and quick
growth. This stem or bud is broken or cut
off, and a sort of cup hollowed out, where
juice can collect. This juice is gathered in
bags made of hog skin, and left to ferment
for several days. Pulque is a mild intoxi
cant, something on the order of beer, but
when it is distilled it produces a frightfully
strong and intoxicating drink called mescal,
which is said to tie ten times worse than
“forty-rod Jersey lightning.”
Let it not be supposed for a moment, how
ever, that Mr. Pierce intends to start a
pulque farm, and all “wets' 1 who prick up
their oars at the announcement will be dis
appointed. Aside from the peculiar proper
ties mentioned above, the maguey plants
produce some of the finest fibre in tiie
world. It is for this purpose I hat Mr. Pierce
proposes to introduce this plant into Orange
county, and he deserves great credit for be
ing the first to do so.
Mr. D. P. Burdon, who has become known
all over the country through his invention
of fibre-cleaning machinery, highly ap
proves of this project, and vvill give the
plant a thorough trial with his apparatus.
From a plantation on Indian river Mr.
Pierce has secured 2,200 maguey plants and
has set them out on his place, which is sit
uated six or eight miles west, of here, near
the South Apopka region. The maguey
seems to thrive liest on light, well drained
soils, and can stand moderate frosts, like
the century plant. Mr. Pierce plants them
3 feet apart each way, thus putting about
5,000 to the acre. His plants range from 6
inches to 2 feet in height, and be paid 10c.
apiece for them. They require little or no
fertilizer, and no cultivation beyond keep
ing the weeds down aud the ground moder
It is doubtful if an acre ran be made to
yield so much fibre as when sot in maguey
plants. Tiie fibre, which is obtained from
the leaves, is of a fine, silky nature, stronger
than sisal hemp and almost as fine as wax.
At three years old the leaves of the plant
attain a size suitable for use. Maguey
leaves often attain a length of five feet and
a breadtlyof six inches. Such a leaf would
produce at least half a pound of clean fibre,
and when one figures out a number of leaves
on a single plant, and the number of plants
grown on an acre, some idea may be formed
of its enormous productiveness.
Mr. George Young, who lives near Or
lando, has also decided to give the maguey
plant a trial, and has started a plantation of
them. The plants are propagated by suckers,
which hardly ever fail to take root, and
grow if planted oil suitable land.
i.formation for Those Who Are Think
ing’ of Turning Out a Few.
From the Xeio York Mail and Express.
“How much does it cost to produce an
encyclopediaf” was asked of au expert, and
“That depends upon tiie method pursued
in making it. The “American Encyclo
pedia” cost S.VXt,OOO before a penny was
realized. The maps and engravings in the
work cost about $11.5,000. Tiie best litho
graphers were employed, and many of the
pictures cost hundreds of dollars. ”
“How is an encyclopedia model"
“ Well, usually alter the method employed
in compiling dictionaries. Editors are en
gaged for different departments. There is
the religious editor, the medical editor, the
j scientific editor and the editor on miscel
laneous subjects. The best, authorities in
the land are chosen to edit the work, and
large salaries are paid In the process of
compilation an alphabetical rule is observed.
The old encyclopedias, such as Chambers'
aud the “Encyclopedia Britaimmcanmo,”
are followed as regards the subjects they
treat of. The modern encyclopedia, how
ever, has very much of a newspaper flavor.
It. is lat-sed upon the principle
of American journalism. It is timely and
intended to hit the spirit of the age. The
biographies of prominent men are made an
especial feature. The American Cyclopedia
is the greatest undertaking in tiie art of
book-making ever attempted in this country.
Charles A. Dana, of the Sun, was and is the
editor-in-chief, lie fixes the prices imid to
contributors. He knows the value of every
word ttiat is written. 1f an article is handed
in by a specialist and another come in from
an obscure professional man in any science
ho chooses the test.”
“How much do the contributors to ency
clopedias make f”
“Generally we pay magazine rates—that
is, $lO per 1.000 words. Many of the arti
cles, however, cost far more titan that.
There are some contributors who receive
SSOO or SI,OOO fora short article. They
possess exclusive information, however. Dr.
tshrady, who is the authority on cancer and
editor of tiie Medical Ilecord , furnished us
exclusive information on that subject and
on many others connected with surgery.
Of course, a specialist is paid far more than
an ordinary writer. Often a page costs us
$.500. Then, again, we run page after page
at the cost of S2O. Many of tiie writers are
men who hold the foremost rank in litera
ture. Consequently they demand large
prices for their work.”
“How much money is invested inencyclo
“That is a difficult question to answer.
Tbe American Cyclopedia lias sold very well.
Wo have run into the millions on sales, but
it should te remembered that encyclopedias
are never sold in bulk. The installment
plan is always adopted. Our contributors
pay for each volume us it is issued."
“In case a volume is lost, can it te dupli
"That dejiends on who tho loser maybe.
A regular contributor, one who has teen
buying volume after volume for years, can
