A Wagon Placed Across the Street
Recently there have been several col
lisions between the electric cars and
wagons on the different streets in the
These collisions have been caused
mainly by reckless driving and attempt
ing to cross in front of the cars when
common sense would dictate otherwise.
But there was a collision Wednesday
night on Milledge avenue which has a
slgniflear.ee to it.
As the car came down the line near
Mr. Sandy Rucker’s the driver sud
denly saw a wagon in front across the
It was too late to stop the car and it
went into the wagon with full force
smashing it to pieces. There were no
horses hitched to the wagon, and it
had evidently been rolled upon the track
Mr. Voss has offered a reward of $10
for the exposure of the person who put
the wagon on the track.
It looks very much as if it was the ac
tion of some one seeking revenge.

IT GOES DOWN.-
Smallest Average Price Ever Paid For
Washington, Dec. 10.—[Special.]—
The cotton returns of December to the
department of agriculture relate to the
average prices on plantations.
The complaint of unremunerative
values is general, and the declaration
is frequent that the crop does uot re
turn the cost of production
A feeling of discouragement pervades
the report, and a disposition to reduce
the area is expressed.
The plantation price, which is the
actual rate for cotton sold at a gin,
average 7 3 cents per pound
For the five years preceding the range
was from 8 1 to 8.6, and averaged near
ly 8 4 cents.
This decline is echoed in the recoida
of exportation, which averaged in Oc
tober value of 8.9 cents against 10.11
cents for October of last year, a drop ol
12 per cent
The state averages are as follows:
Virginia, 7 cent 8 ; North Carolina,
7-4; South Carolina 7.4; Georgia 7 3^
Florida7.3; Alabama 7.3; Mississippi

Chicago, Dec. 10.—A special dispatch
from Galveston, Tex., says: The defeat
of Roger Q. Mills for the speakership

How Came the Tooth Extracted?
Mechanicsburg, O., Dec. 10.—David
Raudebaugh, a prominent citizen of this
place, had a tooth which caused him
considerable pain. He retired as usual,
with the intention of visiting a dentist
the following morning and having the
molar extracted. Upon awakening in
the morning he was startled by finding
his pillow and shirt bosom covered with
blood, and an investigation disclosed
the tooth lying upon the bed clothing
close by. He had suffered no pain suf
ficient to awaken him during the night,
and how the tooth ever became detached
from his jaw remains a mystery which
is not likely to ever be explained. A
number of spiritualists in this commu
nity claim to be able to furnish a key to
the mystery and say that they had
knowledge that the extricating of the
tooth would occur as it did.
Ill Health Causes Suicide.
Vincennes, Ind., Dec. 10.—John C.
Adams, a prominent attorney, was found
dead in his office by his little daughter,
who went there to ascertain why her
father had not come to his supper. A
revolver at his side with one. chamber
empty, a hole in his right temple and a
large pool of blood on the floor told the
story of self destruction. Adams had
suffered lately • of a nervous disease,
which was indirectly the cause of his
untimelp death. He was quite promi
nent in politics, and enjoyed the dis
tinction of having been the only Repub
lican ever elected to the office of county
prosecutor. He left nomessage further

El Paso, Tex., says;
The strike of telegaaph operators be

Railroad company, promises to develop'
into mammoth proportions.
The superintendent of the Santa Fe
railroad has ordered dispatchers to
handle Southern Pacific trains between
this city, Deining.N. M., but the oper
ators bluntly refused to do, and the
superintendent was notiified.
Nothing has been heard from him up
to 6 p. m. If he tries to force the mat
ter and put "scabs” to do the work, it
means a strike on the whole Santa Fe
system. The district superintendent of
the Western Union ordered the men to
handle the ' trains between here and
Doming, but the men would not, and
the matter rests there until higher of
ficials are heard from.
In an interview one of them stated
that if the Southern Pacific company
succeeded in defeating the strikers they
would be next to be dealt with in a like
manner. The operators have received
assurance from every connection,' and

He will probably die. Frank Meaghau

made to release any of the prisoners.
The Letter Came Too Late.
Columbus, Dec. 11.—Mr. Fred Bas
te rtlea, administrator of the estate of
Land Bill Allen, who died recently at
the county infirmary, received a regis
tered letter, mailed at Elson, Kansas,
on Nov. 23, and addressed to Allen.
The letter proved to have been written
by Rhodes Allen, a son of the dead phi
lanthropist. In it the son complains
that he has written a number of letters
to his father without receiving an an
swer, and earnestly entreats him to
oome ont to Kansas and make his home
with him. He offered to send a railway
ticket or to come himself to take his
father home if he would consent to go.
The letter was received at the Colum
bus post office prior to the old man’s
death, but was not delivered to Super
intendent Filler of the infirmary, be
cause the law requires the person to
whom a letter is addressed to call at the
x in person and receipt for the
same. This Mr. Allen was unable to
do, and as a consequence died without
hearing from his son.

Will meat go up?
Must the farmers who' don’t raise
their own meat pay higher prices for it
These are questions of deep concern
among the people of the country today,
and they an looking for information on
The recent conditions of affairs in the
old world have much tc do with decid
ing the question.
All the countries of the old world
that refused to allow the American hog
to be shipped into that country about
t«n years ago are beginning one by one
to mollify those laws aud American
pork may now be sene into their ports.
It this outlet is enlarged, the cnanc-
es are that meat will become cheaper
those countries but
higher in price over here- There is
now in Germany especially some hard
restrictions being put on shipment of
pork from America into that country.
THE AMERICAN HOG IN GERMANY.
A citizen of Atheus who has not been
vety long from Germany, talking about
the situation said, yesterday:
It is only a short time since the
American hog was admitted to Ger
many, against a strong opposition of
nfluential parties and already the signs
are multiplying that its triumph may
be short-lived. Reports are frequent
that tiiohines have been found and the
German officials have destroyed large
quantities. The complaints have been
universal, and Minister Boetticher de
clared iu the Reichstag, that for the
present he would let this country have
the benefit of the doubt and assume
that arrangements have not been com
pleted yet for the sanitary inspection
on this side, which was a condition of
Germany’s raising the embargo. But,
added the Minister, should
we have further trouble, the
Government will rescind the permis
sion and again exclude American hog
Ami now comes a cable from Berlin
that enormous quantities of American
bacon seized at Dus?oldorf on account
of the U. S. inspector’s attest being ir-
egular and insviffiicient, b' cause it said
nothing about the bacon being whole
some food; but only that it was from
amimals “recently slaughtered.”
It will not take much more to Bhut
down Germany against our bog, for in
matter of official negligence that coun
try is very ticklish, and If she should
conceive the idea that our Government
inspectors are unreliable, then good
bye American bog in Germany.

dence would oe blown to pieces with
nitroglycerine. Mr. Beals refuses to

it had been quicksand. He got into the
manhole to lower himself, but the open

way and could not move. After two
hours he wa3 rescued by men. who had
to take the. boiler to piecee. All the
while the engineer was growing weaker
and had to take stimulants.
