GEORGIA'S CAPITAL CITY.
Atlanta University Apt to Forfeit the
Atlanta, Ga., Dee. a—The indications
are that the agitation of the co-education of
the races question in the last Legislature,
growing out of the Glenn bill, is about to
result in a clash between the State and the
Atlanta University, at least so far as it re
lates to the annual appropriation of SB,OOO.
The Glenn bill gave way to a kind of com
promise resolution, originating in the Senate
Committee on Education, which was ap
proved Sept. 211. The resolution directed
the Governor not to draw a warrant for the
annual appropriation to Atlanta University
trader the act of March 3, 1874, until
a plan of expenditure that will secure
the exclusive use of the same for
the education of colored children only, in
accordance with the declared and settled
policy of the State on the subject of co-edu
cation, has been submitted to, and approved
by, the commission constituted in the act
for the supervision of State appropriations,
and further that the commission l>e in
structed to see that the fund is faithfully
applied according to the plan of expendi
ture, and in no other way. The commission
consists of the Chancellor of the State Uni
sity and two University trustees, Atlanta
University recently furnished the com
mission a plan of expenditure, which
while not abandoning co-education
in that institution gave a pledge that the
State's appropriation should not bo used for
the benefit of white children, which it is
evident would in no way change the status
of things. The commissioners returned the
plan of expenditure without approval on
the ground that it did not comply with the
resolution. The News correspondent has
this information unofficially and is
unable to state further concerning the re
sult, except that if Atlanta University ad
heres to the plan proposed it must forfeit
the appropriat ion. In such an event there
is at present no provision for diverting the
appropriation to another colored institution,
and it would remain in the treasury till
further consideration of the matter by the

GOV. PERRY’S ILLNESS.
A False Report to the Effect that He
Has Softening of the Brain.
Pensacola, Fla., Dec. 8.-— The follow
ing telegram, having appeared in the New
Orleans Picayune of yesterday, may cause
some anxiety among the friends of Gov. E.
A startling minor circulated to-dsy is to the
effect that Gov. Perry, who is now lying ill at
his residence in this city, is affected with soft -
ening of the brain. All attempts to trace the
report to an authentic source havo failed, but
the fault lies in the fact that nobody will say
anything on the subject, for nobody has denied

of Gov. Perry, who publishes over his name
the following card:

Frank Phillips. Esq.:
Dear Silt—Your note calling my attention to
the telegram in the New Orleans Picuva ne to
the effect that Oov. Perry is suffering from
“softening of the brain" is to hand. In reply, I
will say there is no truth whatever in the state
ment. The Governor has been overworked, and
is suffering from an attack of malaria. He is
improving steadily, and will lie able in a short
time to resume his duties at Tallahassee Very
truly yours, William H. Koss, M. 1).

Meeting ot the County Commissioners
—Theft cf a Revolver.
Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. B.—The
County Commissioners were in session to
day. The most important business outside
of the routine line was the opening of bids
for the addition to the new court house.
The iron work bids averaged $13,000 and

Among the passengers on the steamship
Cherokee Tuesday was a young man named
Edwin Marco. He was well dressed and
seemed respectable in everyway. He took
up his quarters at Mrs. D. C. Pratts’, No.

to the house being crowded, she put Marco
in a room with another young man, a Mr.
Steele. Early this morning Marco arose
and rumaging around discovered a hand
some silver-mounted revolver belonging to
Mr. Steele, and left at once with it. The
theft was discovered soon after, but Marco
could not lie found. At noon to-day Mrs.
Pratt, while walking down Bay street,
spit'd Marco, but lie wholly denied all
knowledge of her, and started to run.
A hundred people instantly gave chase and
he was caught. He then gave up the re

at a hotel and was engaged this season. He
gave no excuse for his uncalled for theft.

The following order was signed in the
United States Circuit Court by Judge Settle
to-day: “As there is no money in the hands
of the Marshal to pay fees for United States
witnesses, it is impossible to continue busi

with the proper presentation of
the government cases. It is therefore
ordered by the court that the grand jury
and all witnesses heretofore announced to
appear at this term of court on behalf of
the United States tie and they are hereby
discharged until the first Monday in Janu

the Knights of Labor are a strong factor
and will probably object to it.
The Republicans will put out a party

SNYDER’S LONG WALK ENDED.
Death of the Man Who Tramped for
Three Years Unceasingly.
Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. s—Owen Sny
der, who has tieen walking for three years,
and whose death has been already an
nounced had a strange affliction, which
was without precedent, so far as known,
and all efforts of scientific men to afford re
lief to the suffering victim were unsueces
ful. Doctors say that it was an hallucina
tion, and not physical disease that troubled
him. hut whatever its nature, its powerful
hold upon the man eould not lie shaken.
Only a few days ago be told the story of
the beginning and growth of his affliction,
as he staggered along in the deeply worn
path about his old fashioned log cabin.
He said that in the summer of 1884, while
at work in the harvest field, he was at
tacked with a cramping sensation in his
arms. The pain was intense, and after
vainly endeavoring in various ways to ob
tain relief he began to exercise his arms,
and found that the feeling disappeared. He
resorted to more vigorous exercise, and
found in it absolute relief from the pain,
hut when his exertions ceased the sensation
returned. He would chop or saw wood for
hours without intermission.
During this attack, which lasted at first
only a few hours, the entire strength of his
body seemed to centre in the muse’es of his
arms, and he would cut a cord of wood out
of the hardest timber in two hours. When
night came ho would continue his exercise
with a scrubbing brush at the house, until,
as he expressed it, he wore the pain out.
For three months he suffered in this way,
but at last the sensation disappeared, and
for a few days he was a well man again.
In a short time, however, the feeling devel
oped in his feet and legs. Then he was
seized with an uncontrollable desire to
walk, and, finding that constant exercise
was his only means of relief, he kept on in
his tramping, which, in three years’ time
lengthened into a journey of 20,(KM) miles.
During the first two years he walked about
four miles an hour, hut recently he has tot
tered along at the rate of little more than
a mile an hour. He greatly preferred the
open air, and, except during the most in
clement weather, walked in a path about
his humble house that had been worn down
to a depth of nearly eight inches. In the
house he walked in a circ e, and his course
around the stove in his cabin is visible by
the furrow he has worn in the floor.
During the three years of his tramp he
did not take a meal with his family. He
ate from a large pan strapped in front of
him. Upon this pan was also placed his
shaving cup and razor, and he shaved him
self while walking. He wouM fall asleep
while walking about 11 o’clock at night,
and, upon being directed to a chair, would
sleep in an upright position for thr e or
four hours. He frequently arose while still
asleep, and, leaning against one of his sons,
who attended him at all times, continued
his weary tramp. When changing his
clothing he did not cease walking, but his
garments were placed within reach, and he
seized one after another as he passed
The first summer after his waiking mania
developed he attempted to turn it to ac
count by ploughing. He went to a field
where his son was engaged in breaking the
ground, and after following behind in a fur
row for some time, asked permission to hold
the plough. The son stepped aside. All
wont well for several rods, and a feeling of
exultation was coming over the great
walker at the contemplation of the fact
that he was at least able to aid a little in
cultivating his farm. Suddenly, however,
the plough became fastened in the roots of
a tough hickory stump, and the hoyse
stopped. Snyder was unable to do likewise,
and dropping the lines, continued his tramp
across the field, while his son. who had
waited in expectation of some such occur
rence, unfastened the plough and resumed
Lost winter Snyder was induced to go on
exhibition in museums in Chicago, Indian
apolis, St. Louis and Cincinnati for a
jieriod of aliout four months, for which ho
was mid enough to comfortably support his
family in their simple way of living for
five or six years. In making the trip from
one city to another he kept up his tramp
back and forth in a baggage car during the
“Can’t you lie down to rest!” a reporter
“I have been able to lie down but once in
three years, and then only for an hour. It
made me so tired and lame that I was com
pelled to run afterward for five hours to
feel easy again.”
"Did you call a physician when your
affliction first developed f'
“Yes; one was sent for and came. He
tried to convince me that the trouble was in
my head and not in my feet and legs at all.
1 told him I did not need his services, and
he left. At least fifty doctors have visited
me, and as many more examined me. Every
one of them could tell exactly what ailed
me, and every one differed. I have no con
fidence in doctors.”
SAW HER HUSBAND DROWNING.
Rising From a Sick Bed, She Tried to
Save Him, But Was Too Late.
from the New York World.
Ottawa, Dec. 8. —John Benoit, of North
Bay, who had been absent from home at
Bonsteel’s Point, started to return on Thurs
day last, but when within one hundred
yards of the shore where his hut stands, he
found thick ice, which prevented his going
ahead with his bark canoe. With an ax he
began cutting a channel, but had not pro
ceded far when the ax fell from his hands
into the water. He then started to crawl
on hands and knees towards the shore, but
broke through the ice. When twenty feet
from the shore he became exhausted.
From a sick bed in the hut his wife had
witnessed his struggles through a window,
and unable to contain herself longer rushed
out of the house in her night clothes, with
out shoes or stockings, on to the ice and res
cued him. He was unconscious, and for
over three hours she endeavored to keep
him alive by rubbing and keeping his body
warm in the hope that help would come,
but he died at 11 o’clock at night. Seeing
that life was extinct she started with the
youngest child in her arms for the nearest
neightior’s five mibs distant, where help
was secured. Mi's. Benoit was badly frozen
and is novy in a very critical condition.
Several times during her journey through
the woods she lay down in the snow, feeling
unable to go farther.

Waste of Tissue Without Repair.
Vigor begins to decline when dyspepsia in
vades the stomach. The disease, prolonged
through neglect, entails grievous loss of flesh
and serious waste of the muscular tissue. To
invigorate thoroughly and speedily, a sound
stomachic is required. There is none compara
ble to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, since it in
stitutes, and, if continued, perpetuates a repair
of the tissues, which have declined in bulk,
vigor and elasticity in consequence of non
assimilation of the food. No time should be
lost in beginning the reparative process, nor
should there lie any delay in removing those
ailments of frequent occurrence, which con
tribute to and foster an enfeebled condition of
the stomach and nerves, viz.: constipation and
liver complaint, disorders which the Bitters will
assuredly extinguish, it, also remedies and pre
vents malarial and kidney troubles, aud is a
prime auxiliary in the recovery of strength for
convalescents trom wasting disease.
