Gav, familiarly known as “Fa flay," is certainly entitled to the sobriquet of the champion farmer of Early county. From what we deem reli able authority we learn he has this year raised on his farm something near 100 bales of cotton, beside*- an immense quantity of com. and from this production will clear above all expenses near fifty bales of cotton. Cuthbert Liberal: The first issue of the Rroadauee. in Blakely, contained an adver tisement, “A boy wanted at this office.” The next issue of the Early County .Yetcs, published also in Blakely, contained the fol lowing: “Born to Mr. and Mrs W. A. Jor dan, a bouncing baby boy.” W. A. Jordan is editor of the Erondarc. Home iieople pretend to believe that advertising doesn't pay, but it does. The strange actions of a white man at tracted considerable attention Tuesday near Swift's factory, at Columbus. He was seen throwing up* dirt, then crawling on his hands and knees. When approached he jumped over the cemetery fence and ran mpidly in the direction of the park, dodg ing behind every monument he came to. No ciiVe was discovered a* to his identity and no reason for this strange performance could be accounted for. At Kay's mill, in Berrien county, on Tues day evening last, a dreadful encounter oc curred in which il. G. IVarson was shot anrl instantly killed by J. T. Reagly, the cause being a family feud. It appears the parties bad met to amicably settle the trouble, if possible, but soon engaged in some hot words, when Pearson said to Bi'agly : ‘'Come out on the sand and we will -e tie the trouble." They started out. Beaglv drew bi pistol and fired upon hint as he went out, ana shot him dead the first fire, then took to the swamp and has not yet been captured. A man was found early Wednesday morn ing lying by the ! rack oi the Central rail road. about a mile south of Gordon. One of his feet was crushed to pieces, and he had received an ugly wound on his back, break ing several of liis rilis. It is supposed that he had been struck by a night train. He w-as taken to town and his foot was ampu tated by Drs I x-e ami Sanders. He was so weak from the loss of blood and his wounds that he could not tell how he received his injuries. He was identified as being Scab Jackson, living id the southern portion of the county. He seems to be about <lO years of age, and it is feared that he will not re cover. At Atlanta, Tuesday, Detectives Bedford and Cason arrested a white man named dames Guess and a Mrs. William Wilson, who were boarding at the Tremont House, on Marietta street. About two months ago Guess ran away from Asheville, N. C., with the wife of William Wilson and came hi Atlanta. Since their arrival Guess and .Mrs Wilson have pamed themselves off as husband and wife. A detective came from Asheville and spotted the couple, and Wedneeday morning ho left for Asheville with his prisoners, ilrs. Wilson stated that she would never live with Wilson and would run away with Guess again if she got a chance. Comptroller General Wright and Col. Fellows were in prison together at John son's Island, ami the Comptroller is thor oughly delighted with the lug majority fiven his former voke-fellow in New York. allows was a captain of an Arkansas com pany, and when ne got to Johnson's Island was soon the light of the prison. The Comptroller speaks of him at libit time as a brilliant man and a gallant soldier. In the debates with which the prisoners were ac customed at times to relieve the monotony of their confine ment, Fellows was the leader and champion. Frequently, when he had the floor for a speech, the Federal guards would come in and hear him through. The Comptroller has his autograph in nis prison album. The liabilities of A. A. Fletcher & Cos., of Marietta, cotton buyers and grocers, re ported as failed last, night, nre variously stated at from &(0,000 to 1-50,000, with assets of about $U5,000. The cause assigned is that cotton went higher than they agreed to deliver at. and they have lost money right along. The strain of the last few days was too great, and so they went under. Mr. Fletcner has given up everything he owns, even to his horse and buggy. Mr. Boyd, Jr., has nothing available, but has given up his aU, and G. C. Burnny's Marietta hotel is mortgagee on the part of Fletcher’s prop erty. The Merchants’ Bank of Atlanta holds a mortgage on the rent for $7,000, while the Atlanta National Bank will lose considera ble, as will all other unsecured creditors. The colored Baptists of Richmond county have organized an educational society. The object of the society is to establish a Baptist high school or college in Augusta. Within the limits of Augusta, there are not less than twelve Baptist churches, having.a membership of nothing under 5,000. Ample reason is here shown for the establishment of college by a demomination which is so great in number. The constitution provides "that the school established by this society shall consist of three departments, viz: Bib lical, scientific and industrial, which shall be open to both sexes." Also “that the Board of Trustees shall have the power * * * * to establish a model school in connection with this institution The school will be opened as soon as practicable It is thought by Jan. 1. 1888, the school will begin. Marshall MoGebee colored, died at hi' home in Hawginsvilje a day or two sg at an advanced age of to. He was a brother of A. B. McGebee, a successful mirehant, ami whs by trade a contractor and carpen ter, and had the reputation of being one of the most reliable of his trade in town. The decease*! was a worthy and respected citizen, and had the confidence of the busi ness community. While he never held him- self above Ins rare, yet he had not that in tercourse with them common to negroes ■ f his standing, and for that reason he never married. He and his brother together are variously estimated a- being worth between $15,000 and $20,000. They held all things in common between them, their wealth con sisting of a brick store, dwelling, planta tion, railroad stock, bonds, cash, etc. He was a lifetime Democrat. and a great ad mirer of Presideut Cleveland's administra tion. There was a family row in Ben Smith's, district of Gwinnett county, last week, which resulted m a criminal trial last Fri day. T. A. Dillard and his wife, who have been married for many years, and. it is stated, have had eleven children, do not get along as smoothie at times as they ought to. Dillard claims that there is an undue inti macy between his wife and u young man named West. He claimed that he was out gunning for West and found his wife in the woods. and struck her with a gun a-TOSi the head, inflicting serious wounds. She took out a warrant for her husband for assault and battery, and he sued out warrants for her and \V,-st for adultery. Friends of the parties tried to get the matter settled amicably liefore the trial began, hut all efforts proved unavail ing. The court, after hearing the evidence, required West to give bond for his appear ance at court to answer the charge. The other cases were continued. A novel case was brought to the attention ot the Governor Wednesday by anold negro from Clayton county. Horepreseiited that bi> son. Bill Hutchinson, was convicted in the Clayton Superior Court of a misde meanor. and sentences! by Judge Richard H. Clarke to pay a fine of #2O ami costs, or in default thereof to serve a term of six months upon the public works, or such other place as the Ordinary of the county might direct. William defaulted and went to jail. His father states that a short time afterward two men came to the jail, took William out and sold him to Capt. Jim English, who has un til recently had him at work on the Atlanta and Hawkiasville railroad, but proposes now to shift him w ith others to Hand Moun tain, Alabama The old man sought the Governor to find out whether it was lawful to sell his son Bill, and whether Capt. Eng lish now has any right to carry Dim to Alabama It seems that the Ordinary of Clayton hired Bill to Capt English for the six months. The squad with which he has been working will prohably lie moved to the Rome and Carrollton railroad, instead of to Alabama. The Governor was not able to give the old man much satisfaction or re lief! Joe Rease, a negro who works with W. B. Regan, a prominent farmer living seven miles from Cedar Springs, on last Thurs day, while all the rest of the family were absent, attempted to Raie Mrs. Regan. Ho called her to the field a snort distant** to see a horse, which lie clulined was sick, and caught her and threw her down. She drew' a knife and cut at him twice, scream ing all the while. He turned her loose, appeared as seeing someone, and ran off. The community is aroused, and several parties are in pui-suit. The scoundrel will lie lynched if caught. He was tracked to Fairchild’s landing, on the Chattahoochee river. It is supposed he is making his way to Barber county. Alabama, where he claims lie was reared by Mrs. White. Seventy-five dollars reward is of fered for his capture. He is a black, low', heavy-set negro, weighs about 150 pounds, has a sear on the left side of his mouth, run ning in a circle to the middle of his chin, has a little long mole in front of the righ* oar below' the temple, and stutters a little in talking when excited. Milledgeville Union ami Recorder: We have lived a long time and seen many strange things, but. we waited till last Wi-dnesday to see an auction of second hand coffins. We do not, mean to sav that the coffins had ever been used by the de parted body of wmie one once flesh as we are, but that the departed owner had left his coffins in the hands of the constable to be sold under a distress warrant for rent. We are not going to make light of so grave a subject, as a liox made to bury people in, but the man who could look at that collec tiou of coffins so unshapen and out of style, and watched the countenances of the crowd as the bidding went, on, and kept his own severely solier, he was not built our w ay, t hat 's all. There was no one in the crow and willing to try one on. and if there had been t here was nobody just of the size they would have fitted. A few specu lators in futures ran (he bids up in a spirited manner, until a #lO hill covered the pile. The sale attracted quite a crowd of sober old citizens who no doubt wished to find out what the difference would lie in the price of coffins when they didn’t want one and what would it lie if they did. The man who bought the lot seemed to be in dead earnest. FLORIDA. Orlando’s new gas works will be in opera tion before the end of the month. Lafayette county was carried by the Pro hibitionists in the election Nov. 1. The South Florida Exhibition Association is about ready to publish its premium lists. At Orlando Rev. N. A.

Orlando’s city election is called for the second Saturday in December.

The County Commissioners of Osceola at their session on Monday, rescinded their order for an election for pmunueut county seat, which was to lie neld Pei'. T.

Each suc ceeding drill shows a marked improvement on the part of all concerned. At Pulatka. Wednesday, a mass meeting of the fruit and vegetable growers of Put nam county was held in the rooms of the Board of Trade, under the auspices of the Florida Orange Auction Company. It was largely attended by the representative men of that county and some from adjoining o.unties.

At Warrington immense quantities of fish called sheeps-head are caught off tin* coal w'harf in the navy yard. They average about a foot in length, four inches in breadth, and an inch and a half in thickness. They have white and black stripes running across their bodies. It is supposed the * op pered posts have a tendency to draw them and perhaps the eoal also has something to do with attracting them, as they are not near as numerous at the other wharves. It is very seldom that they are caught in cold weather. The wharf is lined with boys from daylight until dark. They sell readi ly for J'-i'c. a piece, and in this way the boys are always supplied with pocket money. A discharged marine from the barracks at Warrington cheated Charles McKenzie Oerting out of a considerable sum of money several days ago. It was in this way: With a discharge a marine receives a due bill stating how much money is due him for clothing, how much retained pay, etc., is duo him. This follow, Wyer, had one. of course, and all that was due him was #175, which he received and receipted for. The marine having run through all his money in Pensacola, wont to Mr. Oerting, whom he knew, and represented tho due bill to tie worth $175, and offered it for half, which, it is said, Mr. Oerting took. Of course, the marine did not stuy long in Pensacola after that, but left for the North. Tho following is a synopsis of the annual report of Superintendent of Schools J. T.

A Mr. Williams who is emigrating from Henry county, Alabama, to Wakulla, county, in Florida, was camping near Chat tahoochee Tuesday night with his family, composed of bis wife, two daughters and three little sons. Near 10 o'clock, when all had retired save Mr. Williams, he was ac costed by a burly negro who demandcxl his money, and who about the same time seized the campers’ gun which had been carelessly left leaning against a bush, and fired upon Mr. Williams, inflicting several painful wounds in his leg and hand. The brute then demanded money of Mrs. Williams, and upon being informed that she had none, remarked t' at he would take one of the girls, and, suiting his action to his words seized one of the girls and male off through the woods with her. Subsequent inspection of the grounds show that he traversed a cir cuit of 100 yards or more and halted at a (mint near the camp where he attempted to outrage her, and where several articles of her clothing were found. From her fright aud screams she managed to resist him. In the meantime Mr. Williams hud gathered his ax and went to her rescue. The villain fled upon Mr. Williams’ upproach, but warned him that he would kill him during the night. Being thus warned, and having recovered his gun, Mr. Will liatns struck camp and was repair ing to the village, when he met a party of friendly colored men who had heard the firing of the guns and the screams of the young lady, and were going to offer assist ance, but tlie night, being quite dark, and they supposing that t here might be other shotguns in the vicinity, dry-lined to answer Mr. Williams’ challenge, and he, apprehend idg further trouble from his assailant, fired into the group, inflicting a painful wound in Jim Wyman’s breast anil also in George Smith's nose. Fortunately the charge was of small shot, or Wyman would have been killed. Williams would have been killed had the villain who assaulted him taken correct aim, as the charge he received was buckshot. Paralyzing the Minnesota Greenhorns. From Ihe Minneapolis Journal . Some funny things happened at the ex position. For instance: Yesterday a portly woman lumbered her way into the sculpture gallery accompanied by a sallow-faced, red-haired female with a scornful east, of countenance. The large woman looked about her contemptu ously. As she looked her disgust grew apace and’finally she ejaculated between short puffs: “Come on, Sairy. Let’s get out o’ hero. They ain’t nothin’’in here but fellows with out any legs,” and she strode out, followed by “Sairy.” I Ater in the day a raw specimen from Wasioja, Minn., concluded to venture a nickel on a trip on the elevator to the look out. He stepped on the platform. The conductor gave the rope a most prodigious yank, and the elevator shot up with a can non ball swiftness. The Wasioja man looked on in open mouthed astonishment; in fact, the conductor had to push him out at the top before ho could gather his wits suffi ciently to say anything. At last he managed to sav: “\Val, I’ll lie dumed. Say, but that fel ler's stronger’n our big bull. By ginger I’d rather plow stump land all day than pull that darned thing to the top o’ this buililin’ the way that feller does.” Phillips’ Digestible Cocoa Makes a very delicious and nourishing drink. It is particularly adapted for persons of weak digestion, differing therein from all ot ier cocoas in the market, lu half-pound and five pound cases. DR. HALL’S GEORGIA DOMAIN. A Proposal to Give Away Land That Isn’t Clearly Located. from the Jacksonville <F'a .) Tones- Union . Dr. J. H. Hall was called on by a Tim**- Inion reporter Wednesday who asked him regarding his offer of 160,000 acres of land to the Irish sufferers. The Doctor was not communicative in that degree that is so clear to the heart of a quill driver, in fact he almost refused to say a word. Dr. Hall has an office on the third floor of tho Robinson block, at 'id 1 -. West Bay. and, when called upon, he was busily engaged in writing. In reply to the reporter's ques tions be said that he would have nothing to sav. Bv dint of considerable persuasion, he finally said that the land offered lies in tbq central portion of Gegrgia, hut lie would not divulge the names of the counties in which it is situated. With these statements he resumed his writing. Tbe questioner i*ontinu©d in his efforts to pump him. but could get nothing from him except a note which no hurriedly wrote on the back of a letter head and which read as follows: "I have withdrawn the grtu'.'L anil there is no object in presenting the master further. • J. H. Halu’l After showing the reporter a pa pel printed in Cork county, he evidently relented slight ly from his first determinat on to suy n.'til ing. He statist that tbe publication of l.ts card was a breach of trust, as it was in tended only as a piece of private informa tion to the editor, and also as a note of in quiry as to how it might lie the better placed before the public. No official recognition having been taken by the leaders in the Irish question, he had withdrawn the offer. He added that his agent is now in Georgia surveying the lauds in question, and that when it is completed, he will present l,oou acres to a committee of three trustees, for the beneiit of tlie Young Men’s Christian Association, of Jacksonville. His reason? for placing the land in the hands of these trustees was tbe trouble he would have with it. He sta’eil that he had received any number of letter', from persons in every part of the I’niteil States, asking why he did not present the land to the poor of America, instead of going across the Atlan tic to find objects of charity. The doctor has nothing of the appearance of a bloated lit rid owner, and he does not seem much concerned on account of the statement of leading land experts in Georgia that they know of no such body of lam! in the State as that which was so generously placed at the disposal of the Irish people, anil which they have not made a rush to ac cept. The doctor has not yet described the metes and bounds of the land he proposes to present to the Young Men’s Christian Asso ciation. British Convict Prisons. FVimi the London Times. The directors of convict prisons have issued their riqiort for the year 1886-7, from which it appears that there has lieen “a great and progressive decrease in the num ber of sentences for serious crimes.” The yearly average number of persons sentenced oil indictment to penal servitude in England and Wales was, during the two years ended 1886, 968 as against 1.427 during the five years ended 1 "4, and 1,633 during a corre sponding period ended 1879. As compared with tlie quinquennial periods ending in 1859, when the number was 2,589, and in 1864, when the total reached 2,800, the diminution is still more striking. In recent years there has been a steady' de cline in our convict prison population, which in July last stood at 7,441. From 1869, to 1873, inclusive, the numbers ranged bet ween 11,090 and 12,000, and from 1874 to ISB3 inclusive, from 10,000 to 11,000 Since tbe latter date, the decrease has been each year marked and regular- The number of soldiers, sailors and marines in convict prisons under sentence of court martial has decreased front 3.50 in 1884 to 127 on July 16, 1887. Milbnnk prison, which has lieen principally used for local prisoners since October, 188:5, but which contained n cer tain' number of convicts up to April 28, 1886, has ceased to receive any since that, date. The directors record a very remarkable decrease in the number of female convicts, which has fallen in the last ten years from 1,47 7to 706. The directors record their sense of t he obligation under which the public lie to the managers of the Westminster Memorial Refuge for the trouble they have taken during the last fifteen years, anil express their bnjie that some means may lie found of supplying tbe assistance formerly rendered by the man agers, but now withdrawn in consequence of the fact that, tho number eligible lor the privilege of admission to that institution has fallen lielow what, is necessary to enable tlie establishment to pay its expenses, although a grant is made by government of lit*, a week for each prisoner, who was also furnished with a good supply of clothing on coming to the refuge. The contemplated closing of VY irfcwond Scrubs Prison as a convict establishment, in order that it may be appropriated for local prisoners instead of Mifbank. has made it necessary to pro vide elsewhere for the ma ufacturing in dustries carried on there. Two of the large halls of Chatham convict prison have there fore been converted into workshops, the ap proaching completion of the docks and works having made it unnecessary for some time past to have accommodation in this prison for so large a number of prisoners as in former years. MEDIC’A L.^ Children. Parents are very often worried about a child that shows signs of drooping and loss of appetite and ti<> desire to join in the sports of their playmates. It is hardly serious enough to require a physician, but it is plain that the child needs something. It is not prurient to force into the young and un developed systems strong and nauseous drugs, but a medicine that will aid, invig orate, enliven and thoroughly cleanse the system by gentle means is what, is desired. Simmons Liver Regulator is a medicine of this kind. The child will not rebel against taking it, because it Is not unpleasant to the taste; it does not coinjiel them to remain indooi-s, and it does not weaken or injure the system. It can safely be administered to the youngest infant. “I have used (Simmons Liver Regulator in my family for eight or ten years and found it the best family medicine I ever used for anything tint may happen.”— Ovid G.
