George Erskine Heard passed away
yesterday morning at four o'clock at
his home in this city.
For quite a while he bad been in de

who watched around his bedside, the

not entirely unexpected.

Mr- Heard was one of our most prom

was secretary of the county Alliance.
He leaves a wife and several children
to mourn bis death.

Wilkesbap.re, Pa., Nor. 11.—A hor
rible story comes from Rowersville,
Pike county. Simon Field, a young
desperado, having plunder in view,
went to the residence of David David, a
well-to-do citizen, and standing in the
middle of the road ealled to the inmates
of the residence to come out. They did
As they appeared at the door he

David was shot in the throat and head.
Charles David, the son, was shot in the
leg. There is great indignation. The
assassin has been arrested and lynch
law is threatened.
Orangeville, Cal., Nov. 11.—S. B.
Brandon and wife have died of arsenical
poisoning. A grown son and daughter
were also poisoned, and the former is
expected to die while the latter may re

family, who were amateur taxidermists,
and was placed in biscuits in mistake
for baking powder.

Bonham. Tex., Nov. 11.—John Bas-
han, who lives three miles north of
here, saw a large flock of wild geese
light in a field. Having no shot he cat
a lot of elugs from a bar of lead and
poured a handful of powder in his gun,
tnd then a handful of sings. Then he
proceeded to crawl to where he had
seen the geese alight. Rising, he saw
something moving which, he says, he
thought was a big black gander, and
J blazed away. The gander dropped, as

ohn reached the spot he was horrified
to find that he had shot three neighbor

Every merchant in Athens knows too
well, that a considerable amount of his
capital is locked up from one season to
another in certain hands; and that just
when he could use his money to good
purpose, or is in argent need of it to
pay off his obligations, he cannot get it.
The Athens mercha ts have resolved
that this condition of affairs cannot be
tolerated any longer. Most of them
have only a limited capital, and
the banks are getting so they
will not make any ad
vances ; thus compelling the merchants
to make better use of the money they
have in their respective business.
Some of our citizens may be put to a
little inconvenience to find money at
once to pay up their indebtedness; but
We trust they will not feel sore over it,
as our merchants for years have been

Excitement In London Over the Tara
Affaire Have Taken.
London, Nov. 11.—A dlapatoh just
received here from Pernambuco brings
alarming intelligence regarding the
situation of affairs in Brazil, whtoh is
rapidly approaching ths point where re
sort to sruu will be necessary to estab
lish the position of Fonseca os dictator.
Bo strong has the opposition to Foaseoa
grown that it is announced that the
important province of Rio Grande de
8ue has declared its independence. The
dispatch just received shows that steps
will have to be immediately taken to
prevent, if possible, the disintegration
of the republic.
The province of Para has followed the
example set by Rio Grande de Sne, and
has declared ite independence. Para is
one of the most important provinces of
Brazil. It is situated in the extreme
north of the country. It contains 419,407
square miles, and its population is esti
mated at 843,511, 10,000 of whom are
supposed to be Indians. The capital of
tbe provinoe is Para, the great rubber
port of tbe world. It exports in addi
tion to other products of the province,
which consists of cotton, vanilla, an-
natto, dry woods, honey, wax and a
great variety of other vegetable and
animal products. Trade Is mostly with
Liverpool, London, Barbados*, Cayenne
and North American ports.
Fonseca is moving rapidly to suppress
these attempts to set up separate gov
ernments, and be h»s ordered a war
ship to proceed without delay to Bio
Grande m Sne to take snoh action as
may be necessary to prevent the pro
vincial anthoMiies from carrying their
declaration of independence into effect
It behooves him to move with
alacrity, for alreadv the man has been
named in connection with the contem
plated presidency of the pro vinos. He
is Stlverio Martinez, who, daring the
revolution, was banished from tka
country. He was subsequently allowed
to return, and he, without doubt, pos
sesses greater political influence than
any other man in the province.
The situation, as may be judged from
events which are rapidly crowding upon
eaoh other, is daily becoming more
grave, and what the result of the wide
spread discontent in Brazil will be, can
only be a matter of conjecture. Fonseca
might perhaps do more to establish a
new order of things were he not a siok
man. Some reports have it that ths
disease from which he is snffering is
cancer; that he will take vigorous
measures to suppress these latest revolts
against his authority is not donbted by
those who are acquainted with the per
sonal characteristics of the man. He,
in no ways, lacks determination.

business portion, of tbe city was thrown
into a fever of exoitement about 5

however, was thrown upon his back in

covered that all the business building
on the public square were heavily
charged with electricity from arc light
wires. Louden had taken hold of an
iron post on the veranda of the hotel
and received a terrific shook. Fortu
nately he fell on a step and this caused
him to roll away from the post, thus
saving his life. Tbe electric current
was shut off until the rain ceased.
Many persons were slightly ahooked by
stepping on tbe gratings at the entrance
