KINSPEOPLE OP THE MIRANDAS
FOUND IN FLORIDA.
The Husband of the Diseased Woman
Former 1 ; Lived at St. Augustine—
He Was Last Heard of in Brazil Af
ter Having a Wandering Life—
His Wife a Stranger to the Family.
Jacksonville, Nov. 26.— Philadelphia
and New York papers of Monday ami Tu<>s
day last had very sensational articles re
garding two leprosy eases at the former city.
It seoms that a Mi's. Miranda and her
daughter, who had been shopping with rela J
fives in Philadelphia, left there on board
a steamer for Brazil, their old
home. While on board, and be
fore the steamship had gone very
far the ship’s doctor pronounced what Mrs.
Miranda thought to be a skin disease genu
ine leprosy. They were then heartlessly
put off the steamer at Newport News, de
spite the poor woman’s entreaties to be
allowed to go to Brazil, where two other
The Morning News representative re
ceived u hint that Mrs. Miranda’s husband
was a Floridian and at once set alxmt trac
ing it up, and the following facts have boon
gleaned regarding it. Lyeurgus Miranda,
the woman’s husband, was a native of St.
Augustine. His grandfather, Diego
Miranda, was very wealthy at one time and
the family were unite prominent. Beside
large possessions at St. Augustine, he ow ned
the "Miranda Grant” in Alachua county.
His son, Silvario Miranda, married a St.
Augustine lady, and four sons were born,
Delaphine, Lyeurgus, Will’am and Frank.
The two latter are in Florida. Frank being
in command of the steamer Everglade, on
the St. John’s river. Readers of the Morn
ing News will also recall the facts
of the deadly assault made on Frank Miran
da in Savannah in August, while acting as
mate on the steamer Drvul Clark. A negro
hit him on the head with a big roek, and he
was confined to the hospital for some time,
life almost being dispaired of at one period.
Delaphine went to sea years
ago, and his present whereabouts
are unknown. Lyourgas was of
an adventuresome and daring disposi
tion, and always said he intended living in
South America, much to his mother’s dis
tress of mind. Some twenty or twentv-five
veal's ago he left Jacksonville in an En
glish bark for a two years’ cruise. He af
ter ward entered the British naval service,
and was heard from at long intervening pe
riods, at various points, prov
ing that his roving disposition
was being indulged to the fullest
extent. The last heard from him was some
years ago when he was in Brazil and
running a steamer on the Amazon. A
rumor afterward told of his death there
but it was never corroborated. His father
was killed in St. Augustine several years
ago by falling down stairs, and his mother
also died later. The family have dispersed,
and almost the memory of Ly. urgus was for
gotten When the relatives were found and
told of the distressing condition of Lycur
giLs' wife and child, they were greatly sur
prised and pained by her terrible situation.
They knew nothing of his marriage, how
ever. and had never heard of M.rs. Miranda
before. Mrs. J. C. Thomas, a sister of
Lyeurgus’ mother, who keeps a millinery'
stei ein St. Augustine, was seen and the
extracts from the Philadelphia and New
York papers i-ead to her. She was horror
struck at her unknown relative’s straits and
her tears attested her deep emotion. She
said her people had lost track of the two
elder boys almost entirely and this was the
first news she had heard for years.
She was very indignant at the
treatment Mrs. Miranda received,
but she (Rd not know how she could aid
them. Several others, relatives and friends
of the family, were seep, and they ali ex
pressed great commiseration and sympathy
for Mrs. Miranda in her affliction. Several
said they would write to friends in Phila
delphia and ascertain if anything could be
done to help them. The facts in the case
excited quite astir among the older resi
dents, who knew the boys.
THE COMING CONVENTION.
Posters arc on* calling for a convention of
fruit and vegetable growers of this State,
together with the fruit commission turns
North, to be held in this city Dec. 1, 2 and 3,
under the auspices of the Florida Orange
Auction and Forwarding Company. The
growers are requested to send on a large
display of their fruits, so as to show the
dealers the full resources of the State,
the idea being to establish a home
market for all Florida productions, selling
everything inside the State rather than
sending to the commission men North, and
realize, at times, little or nothing for fruit
or vegetables. Excursion rates have been
arranged on ali the railroads, and it is
hoped a large attendance will be had.
The people throughout the State are be
ginning to see their need of a State Board
of Health. Senator Whiddeu, of DeSoto
county, who opposed the bill in the last
Legislature, now says he is convinced of his
error. The Jacksonville business men are
nearly a unit on the question, and probably
there is the same feeling throughout the
VN WHOLESOME FRUIT.
Dr. J. C. Kenworthv, City Health Officer,
had the captain of a Jamaica fruit schooner
arraigned before the Mayor this morning
for offering for sale unwholesome fruit.
The cargo of the craft consisted of 1 .TOO
bunches of bananas, fully one-third or more
of which were more or less decayed. The
stench in the hold was fearful. The Mayor
held that as the quarantine officer at May
port had passed the vessel he had no jurisdic
tion. The doctor, however, compelled the
Captain to haul off into the stream as soon’
the good fruit was sold, and the decayed
bananas will be dumped into the ocean. Dr.
Kenworthy was rather indignant over the
release of the Captain, as he said a few car

an epidemic, as the fruit was in such a de

AMENITIES OP JOURNALISM.
Soma Gossip About the War Between
the Sun and World.
New York, Nov. 26.— New York has sel
dom witnessed a more bitter journalistic
fight than that which grew out of tlio re
cent contest for the District Attorneyship,
and which was peculiarly bitter between
the Sun and the World. 1 believe it is in
“Bleak House” that Dickons satirizes the
American propensity to personal journal
ism, but even his vivid imagination could
hardly have conjured up any more vigorous
terms than those which were exchanged
with such prodigal freedom in the recent
campaign, when Charles A. Dana und
Joseph Pulitzer actually seemed to have
each other by the throat and to be hissing
and sputtering “Judas Iscariot,” “Ananias,"
“Hungry Joe” “Wandering Jew,”
“Coward,” “Traitor,” “Poltroon.”
and other endearing terms perhaps
not altogether creditable to American, or
for that matter, to Timbuctoo, journalism.
The tiattle was, of course, directed by
Charles A Dana und Joseph Pulitzer as
generals-in-chief of the opposing forces, hut
as a Napoloon, a Wellington or a Grant has
his Mai-shal Massena, his charging Murat or
his fiery Sherman, so these journalistic
rbieftains had in one case Chester S. Lord,
nf tne Sun, and CoL John Cockerill, of the
World, as managing editors to carry out
the orders and plunge into tne fire and
smoke of the butte, destroying the bubble
reputation from the cannon’s mouth A few
months ago there was a report that Mr
Dana had very courteously tendered
Mr. Pulitzer the use of his private box at
the Metropolitan Opera House on the occa
sion of a particularly crowded house, but
if this incident actually occurred it was some
time previous to the election fight, and now
there seems to be genuine personal feeling,
r specially on one side, and the two editors
hardly speak as they pass by. Still it need
excite little surprise if there should prove
to be less personal animosity than might
be supposed utter the recent bitter duel of
The rank and file of the two papers main
tained pleasant relations all through the
fight. Reporters are like soldiers on a picket
line. It would be childish to quarrel with
the pickets of the enemy simply because
they are attached to different forces and be
cause their chiefs are trying to checkmate
each other on the field. Gen. Grant, like
every other General, knew that his pickets
fraternized with those of the enemy, and ho
himself once received a very respectful salute
from the Confederate guard after t.liev had
ascertained who ho was from the Union
pickets. When it comes to actual work,
reporters will strain every nerve to beat
each other, but in off hours, or when they
are, us it were, merely on the picket line,
like the soldiers who exchanged whisky and
tobacco, each side leaving their arms
against a tree, they fraternize, exchange
compliments, good natured or derisive,
drink together, and to the casual beholder,
seem the liest of friends, as indeed they are
in many instances.
Editors iaugh over the shots they give
and receive. In the days when the World
was owned by Manton Marble, and the
gifted Ivory Chamberlain was its chief edi
torial writer, the paper often contained the
fiercest invective against the Tribune as
well as the most caustic personal criticism
of Mr. Greeley, and yet Mr. Chamberlain
and Mr. Greeley were personal friends.
There was never a more pathetic la
nit nt, never a more remarkable editorial,
than that which Mr. Chamberlain wrote
for the World on the death of
Mr. Greeley, a wild outburst of grief,
a touching revelation of self-reproach
for not having more deeply sympathized
with Mr. Greeley ou the death of his wife
and in his other sore trials—the manly grief
and teal's in print of one of the most schol
arly of editors taking the reader into his
confidence in the momentary disregard of
editorial forms. And I believe it was the
attention which this remarkable editorial
attracted that led Mr. James Gordon Ben
nett to retain Mr. Chamberlain for editorial
duties on the Herald at a salary of SI,OOO a
In the very hottest of the recent fight the
opposing managing editoi-s of the Sun and
the World would casually meet every
morning at about 2:30, or just after the pa
pel's had gone to press, and laugh over the
progress of the contest. The Press Club, in
Nassau street, is a great resort of newspaper
men at about that hour. There in the cafe
sat Col. Coekerill, a man of about the me
dium height, with gray eyes, refined and
handsome features, with character and abil
ity very clearly depicted thereon, cool in
temperament, but courteous in manner, a
natural leader, who likes a foeman worthy
of his steel. He is refreshing himself
after a hard day’s work with a bottle of
beer and some crackers and cheese. Near
by sits Chester S. Lord, tall, soldierly-look
ing, with closely cropped hair and an impe
rial, clear blue eyes like his opponent, a
man of cool temperament, keenly jvatching
every move on the newspaper chess-board,
ignoring it or checkmating it with a good
natured laugh, and enjoying tho fight, huge
ly. He is sipping a single glass of gin and
milk and partaking of a chop, and in the
meantime exchanging compliments with his
adversary. Col. Coekerill says:
“Well, Brother Lord, what is the latest
thump?” referring to the possible contents
of the forthcoming issue of the Sun, Or
Mr. Lord says: “Well, Colonel, what do
you think of our latest gun '” Then there
is a pleasant interchange of opinions, with
such remarks as: “That was a good ohe,” “I
had to laugh at that,” 1 congratulate you on
your splendid paper thismoridng,” “We are
digging in the nest we can,” “See xvhat
we shall have about you people to-morrow,”
“I know it will be good,” “Our ammuni
tion has not given out.” or similar remarks,
attended with shouts of laughter. Tho two
antagonists, after a pleasant conversation,
separate and tho next dav their verbal
thunders shake the political world of New
York, anil the reader would suppose these
two gentlemen would shoot each other at
sight. It suggests the story of the green
countryman involved in a law
suit who was lost in ndmiration of
his lawyer’s prowess with the tongue.
“Gosh all firelocks!” beexclaimed, “didn’t
rny lawyer give it to that other one. Why
he took the hide right off him and hung it
on a fence, but”—with a mystified air—
“what knocked me into a heap was to see
my lawyer go off arm in arm with the
other one and take a drink together.” Simi
larly it would have astonish?d some fierce
partisans to see these lawyer-like journalists
exchanging compliments not merely after
the fight, but in the very midst of it.
Chester S. Lord managed the campaign
for the Sun with especial vigor from the
morning that Mr. Dana came to him and
said: “You had bettor turn on the bat
teries.” They were promptly turned on.
Mr. Dana, white-haired, but as vigorous
mentally and phvsically as ever, would
come out into the large room occupied by
the managing editor, city editor and the
reporters together, and, looking at Mr.
Lord with a quizzical smile, would say:
“Well, my boy, now are you getting on:”
“Oh, we’re keeping our end up,” was the

from Hamilton College, wrote for the Utica

The director divides the patients into
threo groups, the better to explain the pro
portion of fatal cases to the total number
of patients dismissed as cured. In fifty-two
cases the existence of rabies in the animals
by which the patients were bitten was
proved by trepanning. Of these patients
one died. In twelve cases the ral/id condi
tion of the animals was proved by the
deaths of persons bitten by the same ani
mals, but who were not brought to the sta
tion. Of these one also died. There were
2bo cases in which the patients, all bitton by
presumably rabid animals, hod manifested
signs of hydrophobia. Of these seven died.
Sixteen persons were inoculated as a pre
ventive measure, never having been bitten
by animals, rabid or healthy. Dr. Gaina
lea, the director of the Odessa station, and
an enthusiastic disciple of M. Pasteur, has
been inoculated threo times, once in Paris
and twice in Odessa, not for rabid bites, but,
as he says, simply to give confidence to
others. _ _

An ingenious Charleston mechanic,
has patented anew motive
power, which promises to make a
stir in the world of mechanics. The in
ventor claims that it can be attached to any
kind of shafting, and that its power can be
so graduated that it can be employed in
running any kind of machinery, however
simple or complex. The invention consists
of a double crank shaft, operated by the vi
bration of a long lever. Two short levers
are attached to the long lever near the end
and pivot to the cranks in opposite direc
tions. The long lever swings on a ring
directly around the crank shaft, attached to
the frame, on both sides of the cranks. The
short levers connect at one end with the
cranks and at the other with the long lever
working directly under it, so that
with a push from the long lever both the
sh irt levers push in opposite direc
tions and revolve the crank, which can he
run at any rate of speed, fast or slow. The
inventor also claims that his movement,
“constructed so as to have two levers at
tached to double cracks at right angles, will
completely overcome the dead centre, and
that, by vibrating both levers, the revolu
tion is quartered. ” The principal part of the
movement is in the leverage, regulating < lie
power by whatever length is needed. The
inventor claims that such a gear, run by
electricity and applied to street cars, would
not require more than half of the power
now used, nor near so large a motor. The
movement can be either backward or for
ward, and works one way as well as the

which Asthma was the most t revulent.
She has not laid down in bed for seven
years. He has expended all the money

for medicine, physicians, etc., to obtain
relief for her. but without any success
whatever. He was advised by physi
cians to try P. P. P. He finally did so,
expecting to derive no benefit, but after
taking less than two bottles eruptions
ap]H>ared all over ami she immediately
began to improve, and now her skin is
perfectly clear. She sleeps soundly
every night oti an ordinary pillow and
her general health has not been bettor
in years. Mr. Newman, who is a mer
chant in Ijike City, is very enthusiastic
over the cure, and thinks it the grandest
blood purifier and tonic of the age.
P. P. P. is a homo, remedy; is no secret,
but a regular physician's prescription, pre
