Your correspondent left Brunswick for
Fernandina on the staunch steamer City of
Brunswick, after a most pleasant sojourn
with mine host of the Ocean Hotel, Mr. J.
B. Latimer, who tries to leave nothing un
done for the comfort of his guests. • No fear
that the grhnd Oglethorpe, when com
pleted, will ever overshadow this popular
hostelry, so long as its genial proprietor re
mains at the helm. In fact, the experience
ef Florida has demonstrated that the pros
perity of a town <\eponds no littlo upon the
number and extent of its hotel accommo
dations. Judging by this, every house of
entertainment in the city will be benefited
by the diversion of tourist travel to Bruns
wick upon the opening of the Oglethorpe
On the morning of the boat’s departure,
a regular London fog, opaque and almost as
black as Egyptian darkness, had settled
like a [Mill ujion the whole face of nature.
The steamer literally crept along, feeling its
way through the numeiyms ships and river
craft, until reaching the landing on Jekyl
Island. Here the mist having lifted slight
ly, we had a dim and unsatisfactory view
FAMOUS CLUB HOUSE
aud its elegant surroundings. The reader
is aware that a year or two ago a wealthy
Northern syndicate, of which Mr. Vander
bilt is a member, purchased the whole island
outright for a large sum, and resoived to
convert it into a game preserve and (South
ern winter resort. To this end they have
erected an expensive and imposing club
house, and set apart building sites
for each shareholder, to be im
proved according to his individual taste.
Bteps to do this have already been taken,
and doubtless quite a number of lovely
villas will soon be completed. Broad ave
nues and shell roads for drives are also in
process of construction, the company using
its own steam tug and barges to transport
the oyster shells from the coast.
In accordance, too, with the original
plan, all the cattle, sheep and swine nave
been removed from the island, and it is
now stocked with deer, wild turkeys and
partridges, alone. It is asserted on the
authority of the Advertiser and Appeal,
that one thousand antlered sons of the for
est, including their does and fawns, now
roam at large unmolested by
hunters from the main, and an agent
is actually canvassing Northern Florida
and South Georgia in quest of live quails to
lie turned loose on the island. He adver
tises to pay $1 50 per dozen for these birdis,
and will doubtless secure any number of
them. With a view to their support and
propagation, fields have been cleared and
sown ingrain. The island also swarms with
ducks and other water fowls, which enjoy
perfect immunity, save from the guns of
the amateur proprietors during the hunting
As the boat glided along through Jekyl
river it passed a little cove into which a
chain of ponds debouched from the interior
of the island. With the naked eye hun
dreds of ducks could be seen feeding upon
their surface. This enterprise, besides giving
anew impetus to the value of real estate,
will bring thousands of dollars to the city
of Brunswick by the purchase of supplies,
and adding to its attractions as a winter
A stiff breeze and chopping sea made
things rather lively in St. Andrews’ sound,
which has the name of being the most
dangerous portion of the South Atlantic
coast. But we passed over in safety, aud
after touching a few moments at
and admiring the palatial residence recently
erected there, reached Fernandina without
accident or adventure.
This was an ancient Spanish town and
grew to be a place of considerable import
acne during the existence of the
which preceded the second war with En
gland. A large fleet of United State gun
boats sought in vain to prevent communica
tion with Florida, then a province of Spain,
aud Fernandina with her deep water and
magnificent harbor was the favorite Resort
of the smuggler and blockade runner.
When peace was restored the place
dwindled again, and was a mere straggling
village before the completion of
the railroad to Cedar Keys. Now
of brick buildings aud many elegant stores
and houses greet the eye of the visitor.
A first-class hotel also, the Egmont, Samuel
T. Riddle proprietor, offers delightful ac
commodations to the public, and this enter
prise has contributions much, or more than
any other, to the growth and reputation of
fhe city. The Morning News has a strong
foothold here, and stands side by side with
its creditable contemporaries from the
adjacent city of Jacksonville. Indeed,
all the merchants admit that as a
mercantile and news journal it has no su
perior in the South, and are outspoken on
the subject. Among the new additions to
the list of subscribers are Whitner & Schuy
ler, who conduct a first-class family grocery
store; J. &. T. Kydd. whose dry goods
establishment is one of the largest and most
complete in the city; George A. Latham and
Albert Glaiber, dealers nr fine imported and |
domestic liquors, cigai's, etc., George C.
Dixon, beef market and green grocer; V. A.
Costa, who runs a general store in Old Fer
nandiua;J. IX Lowe, confectioner and fruit
dealer, aud others.
Fernandina boasts a good newspaper,
bank, and several fine warehouses. Its
population is about 4,000.
COMMERCE OF THK PORT.
The lumber busiuessof Fernamlina has in
creased fully 35 per cent, in the last six
months. From the obliging custom house
officials we learn that no less than 1.1,500,000
of feet of timber of various classes were
shipped during the last month alone, of
which 3,0:20,000 feet went to foreign, and
the remainder to coastwise cities. The en
trances in November wore as follows:
From foreign countries 10
Cos ist wise ports 28
For the some period the foreign entrance
tonnage was tons, anti the clearance
tonnage 3,759 tons. The entrunce tounage
of coastwise vessels also footed up 18,345
tons, and the clearance tonnage 33,353. 't his
is a good showing. At this time 750 tons of
steel rails for the Florida Midland railroad
are in bond here.
The lumber business of this port is vastly
iti excess of that of Jacksonville.
A NKW DEPARTURE.
Femandina for long years had suffered
under the domination of the black element
m the population, but a recent act of the
legislature modifying the charter of the
town so as to admit of its subdivision into
wards has changed the whole aspect of
affairs In the laying out of the wards
much the larger portion of the colored vote
is inoludod in oneor two of them, and the
whites havo a decided majority in the City
Council, thus virtually giving them the con
trol of public matters. Of course the May
oralty, if the blacks concentrate, remains
n their hand*.
The present incumb>nt, however, an old
t nited States army o.flcer, is a w hite man
very conservative in his views, and quite
popular. We failed to see him, and cannot,
now recall his name. There is very little
power or responsibility attaching to the
electric lights and water works.
The city is jubilant just now over the
result of the late eiectiou, which, by a
handsome majority, has authorized the
issue of bonds to the amount of $50,000 for
the inauguration of a system of water
works and electric lights. These will add no
little to the comfort and prosperity of this
rising little city.
Fernandina is noted for its salubrity of
climate aud the fine sea beach in close
proximity, and her elegant hotel attract
hither many Northern visitors, and this
number will continue to increase. The
writer, before returning to Georgia, made a
brief call at
also. We found the city in a perfect tur
moil over the question as to whether under
some defect of recent legislation, an elec

"BOUND TO HAVE COAL OR BLOOD.”
Cry of Western Kansas Farmers as
They Robbed a Passing Train.
From the New York World.
Kansas City, Dec. 6. —Since the cold
weather set in reports of lack of coal in
Western Kansas have been heard here, but
it was not until recently that anything defi
nite could be learned. A dispatch from
Syracuse, Kan., reports that during the
past three weeks coal has been very scarce
m the extreme western part of the State,
which has caused a vast amount of suffering
among the Hettiers living from twenty-five
to seventy-five miles from a sailroad. Hun
dreds of cars of New Mexico and Colorado
coal passed through, billed to Kansas City
and other points east, but it was only now
and then that the company could be in
duced to drop off a car for the Syracuse
Saturday evening a large party of farm
ers took forcible possession of a train of
coal at Syracuse and hold it a good portion
of the night until they had filial their
wagons. They left money to pay for what
they had taken. Neither seals nor the
growls of the train men had any terrors for
these determined farmers, for, as one of
them put it, "they were bound to have coal
or blood.” In Garden City hundreds of
families are either entirely destitute of the
means of keeping warm or are huddling
over a few scant embers. This is
not the situation in Garden City
alone but in everv other town in
the Western part of Kansas. Those who
are holding down claims throughout the
country are unable to procure this necessa
ry article, and should a blizzard set in, hun
dreds must inevitably perish from the cold
The trouble seems to be with the Atchison,
Topeka and Santa Fe railroad company,
which refuses to furnish transportation from
the vast beds on either side of this section
of country. But one carload was re eived
at Garden City last week to supply the
wants of its 7,000 inhabitants and the farm
ers of the great section of country who re
ly upon the city for supplies. This was dealt
out a few pounds at a time, none receiving
sufficient to last over two or three days, and
many of the most needy being overlooked
in the distribution.
Threats are openly made of burning the
railroad property all along its line in West
ern Kansas, should this condition of affairs
be much more prolonged. The mild aud
open weather of tho past few days has been
a godsend, but no one can prophesy the dire
consequences of a blizzard or a snow
blockade. Seven dollars and a half per ton
is gladly paid for coal, but none can bo pro
cured even at that figure. The people are
becoming desperate. Great crowds gather
at the railroad yards at various points
threatening to rob the engines which pass
through of their fuel. None of the fault
can be assigned to the coal dealers, as they
do evoything in their power to relieve the
suffering, but have hundreds of uuffiled
orders for which cash has been paid.
They Smoked for a Wager.
From the New York World.
Francis Keon and William Fayer are
■well-known characters at the various sport
ing houses in Brooklyn. They are constant
smokers and either is rarely seen without a
pipe in his mouth. A week ago some local
sports began to talk about the ability of
these men in the smoking line, and the talk
waxed warm. The little party split up into
Keon and Fayer adherents, the result being
that a smoking-match was arranged, and on
Thursday night there gathered a number of
men about town in an Atlantic avenue ho
tel, where they witnessed a novel contest.
There was a table in the centre of a large
room on the table were two day pipes
and a pound of strong tobacco. The con
testants walked in and took positions at op
posite sides of the table as though the task
before them was a pleasant one. The men
resolutely filled the pipes and at exactly 8
o’clock the word was given to go. Each
man began to the first ring of
smoke came from Keon’s mouth. Then the
two men settled down to see which could
convert the greatest amount of tobacco into
ashes and smoke in the lesser time. So
dense did the clouds become about the
heads of the contestants that they could
not be seen by the people they were enter
Away they pnffed, keeping neck and neck,
and each man consuming the same amount
of tobacco. As each man finished a pipe
ful his friends cheered him. Soon it was
noticed that Keon was not puffing so vigor
ously as he had been and there was joy in
the Fayer corner. But the joy was not of
long duration, for Fayer appeared to lose
strength, and then followed a general relax
ation of the muscles of both men. The con
test then became more interesting, because
more critical, and at each puff the two faces
became paler. Keon felt that he was near
the end of his great smoke, but his weary
heart was stimulated when he glanced at
the face of his antagonist. From that time
out it required many cheering words from
friends to keep the men at their work. At
9:20 o’clock the two men were still at a tie—
each had consumed nine pipefuls of tobac
co. Keon filled his pipe for the tenth time,
but Fayer turned away from the table a de
A collation was served later in the even
ing. Neither of the contestants partook of
the good things that were served. Fayer
was seasick and Keon was so elated at his
victory that he hail lost his appetite.

Death Averted by the Use of Pricl*ly

1 had a negro working on my place
who had a very ugly sore on his neck,
extending from the chin to the breast,

was supposed to be a cancer, lie hail

him—Prickly Ash. Poke Root and Potas

wonderful. The sore began to heal at

strength and llesh, till finally the entire
mass of impure llesh canto out, and the
place filled up and scabbed over. This

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1887.
GIRLS WHO CAN FENCE.
Quicker Than Men and Superior In the
Matt dr of Strategy.
From the Chii'ayo Tribune.
The pupils in the class numbered au even
dozen, ten of whom were of the gentler sex.
It was only their third or fourth lessou in the
art of fensing, and they already knew
enough to enable them to handle their foils
and go through their drill of attack and
defense without a hitch.
“It is a great mistake to suppose that
women cannot learn fencing as quickly as
men,” said Col. Tom Monstery, subsequent
ly, in a chat with a reporter; “the fact is
the women are much the quicker pupils.
They are more flexible of body; their limbs
are more supple and elastic—that’s one ad
vantage Their mental brightness enables
them to pick up the strategy of the art
quicker—that’s a second advantage. And,
tmrdly, they have more nerve—it’s a fact;
I don’t know why, but it’s a fact.”
The class was one of the regular classes of
the Chicago Conservatory, a school of
drama and music, and one where theso arts
are taught in no less than twenty-two dis
tinct branches. The school is modeled after
the State-supported dramatic schools of
Vienna and Paris, its object being to give
instruction in everything appertaining to
dramatic and musical art. Fencing is sup
posed to be a branch of dramatic art, and
therefore there is a class in fencing, with
Col. Monstery as special instructor. It was
into the fencing class room that a reporter
accidentally wandered a day or two ago
when hunting quite another matter. The
twelve pupils then at work—ten young
women and two young men—stood in a row
with their foils poised m the air, heads
erect, shoulders thrown back, and eyes fixed
on Col. Monstery.
“VVe cep!” said the Colonel. At least it
sounded like we-eep.
The pupils flashed their blades in a semi
“Gar-r-dy!” said the Colonel.
The blades flashed in a" new direction.
Thus it went on. Sometimes the pupils
would spring forward on tho right foot,
each stradding at least 4 feet of the floor,
ami then fall back with a uniform double
step, the foils swirling around all tho time.
The girl pupils were uniformly dressed.
They w r ere neat, plain up-and-down cos
tumes of gray flannel trimmed with white,
the dress being tied loosely around the
waist and hanging in straight folds to a lit
tle above the ankle. They wore no bustles
nor corsets nor any of those other modern
inventions of Satan and Worth wherewith
the female human form divino is disgusted
as a human monstrosity. Every female pu
pil in the physical cultflre branches has got
to discard her proper raiment for tho time
being and don a dowdish, unfashionable,
warm, comfortable gown of flannel, big
and loose enough to allow free play to every
muscle and sinew.
This rule incidentally serves a purpose for
which it was not intended; it places the pu
gils on an equal footing in the class room.
ome of the pupils are poor, struggling
girls—poor, but ambitious. Others are
fashionable young ladies who move in the
inner circles of society—girls whose ambi
tion may be merely to shine as stars in their
own limited orbits, or whose motive may
be a laudable desire for a wider education,
both mental and physical. Among the pu
pils in the class referred to was one young
married lady who has an excellent position
in society and whose husband is well known
in professional circles. This lady is in train
ing under an assumed name, but is not at
all “stage struck,” and, whatever her suc
cess may be, will never appear as a profes
sional actress. Of course, some of the pu
pils ar e stage struck young women—most of
them indeed may have a more or less defi
nite idea of eventually snatching glory and
laurels froip across the footlights—-but many
of them are working purely for immediate
benefits in the way of vocal and physical
culture. But whatever strata of society the
girls may coine from or whatever their mo
tives may be, they are all on an equal foot
ing in the class room, and the compulsory
flannel uniform has a good deal to do with
There is no doubt but that the girls take
readily to the use of the sword. In that
classic production of Mr. Dave Henderson’s.
“The Arabian Nights,” it will be remem
bered that one of the most attractive spec
tacles was the combat with short
swords aboard the good ship Gookazoo,
where a dozen or more shapely young wom
en, clad in the most lovely blue satin jack
ets and pantaloons such as sailors wear in
time of war, fought a quadrille duel to the
death. The gusto with which the young
women slashed each other’s swords until the
sparks flew and their manifest dislike to
falling down and being killed showea that
they enjoyed the performance quite as well
as the spectators. The conservatory pupils
also like to slash their foils around, and in
this matter of slashing could give “The
Arabian Nights” sailors some points. They
drilled and slashed individually and collec
tively for three-quarters of an hour, and
then took a breathing spell. If any dude or
masher or other offensive male should ever
insult one of these girls when she happens to
have her parasol she’ll jioke his eve out and
break four of his ribs before he knows what
hit him. And the man who marries one of
them —well, when she gets in a temper he
will have to either sing small or light out
until the storm is over.
The regular lesson being finished, Miss
Mildred Holland and Col. Monstery fought
a duel with the foils—a duel for blood and
“points” and glory. Miss Holland is a star
pupil in her third year, and is the most ex
pert woman fencer in the city, or probably
in the United States. Anew pupd—a tall
young man whose name might be Smart
Aleck —joined the school a few weeks ago to
go through the regular courses.
“It isn't necessary for me to attend the
fencing class,” he said the first day he came;
“I know all about fencing. 1 taught fencing
myself for a while.”
“I should like you to have a fencing bout
with one of the young ladies,” said Mr.
Kayzer—“just to let them see what you can
do, you know.”
“What! Fence with a girl? Oh, dear
me, it isn’t fair to the girli there’s no fun iu
fencing except with one who knows how.
Still, if you insist upon it —”
Mr. Kayzer did mildly insist upon it, and
so Mr. Aleck put on the gauntlets and mask
and doublet, and condescended to cross foils
with a modest little black-eyed girl named
Holland. An instant later Mr. Aleck’s foil
went spinning across the room, having teen
wrenched from bis hand in some unaccoun
table way. He picked up the foil shame
facedly, and examined the hilt with appar
ent interest. The hilt was all right, t hen
he tried again. Miss Holland just toyed
with him. She tapped him almost where
she plea-ed, and when he tried to beat her
down by brute force she had a knack of
wrenching his foil from his hand aud send
ing it flying.
Miss Holland and her tutor, the Colonel,
are pretty fairly matched, ami the battle
was u perfect picture of scientific attack
ami defense. As far as the unscientific
spectator could make out, the Colonel killed
her abo-t flvo times, whilo she stabbed the
Colonel through the heart twice. Her move
ments were like a flash, a.id tho revolutions
of the foil., were so swift that the air seemed
glittering with flying steel. There was
much more recklessness lkun in a stage ex
hibition combat, but tho padded doublets,
gauntlets and masks v>rovented all risk of
injury to the combatants.
“It is wonderful liow much better lady
feic ers are at strategy than men," said
Col. Monstery as he wiped bis brow when
the bout was over. “Not only in the use
of strategy themselves,” he continued, “but
in the detection of an opponent’s intended
move.” , , .
“Does she read it in your eye!” was
“Eye—nonsense! That idea that you
have to watch your opponent’s eve is all
moonshine—played out long ago. You read
in the touch of your opponent’s foil; you
feel as by instinct what lie is going to do. It.
is the tremor of the wrist and never the
flash of the eye that warns miner combat
ant what the other intends."

“ Saperlativeiy Perfect! ”
Messrs. Chickering dt Syns:
Gentlemen—After many years’ experi
ence as a pianist in this country and
Europe, and after having used the instru
ments of the leading makers here and
abroad, it is with pleasure that I give to
you my matured opinion upon your pianos.
In them I find the purest, ti-uest and most
musical tone, together with an action
which will answer my demands equally in
the most piannissimo playing and in the
heaviest forte effects, and combining these
qualities with an almost endless resonance.
I can find for them no more fitting praise
than that of the Great Maestro, Franz Liszt,
who declares them “Superlatively Perfect.”
(Signed) Julie Rive-King.
New York, October 11, 1887.
For the BBST Piano, mind you
we say BEST, buy the Chicker

Highest-Priced Piano sold, but
it’s the BEST all the same.
