The fever started simultaneously in
the guard house and the band quarters
of the barracks. All the cases have
been removed to the fever hospital

ing that it is impossible to correct the
lists of the Cuban army or to make
new ones, as many of tl>e soldiers are
already working on plantations, while
others have returned to their homes
and will pay no attention to a call to
return to their commands in order to
have their names put on the lie's. To*
day Gomez informed Gen. Brooke that
it was impossible to make a new list of
Cuban soldiers, owing to the fact that
the men were scattered. Gen. Brooke i
requested that a subsidiary list be

A Gift for Emory Winship
Over S3OO have been raised to pro
vide Emory Winship with some suita
ble recognition of his servicts in the
Philippines on his arrival in Macon.
The collecting committee has closed
its work and S3OO and over has been
subscribed and paid in.
Ina few days the committee will be
called together and some suitable gift
will be decided on. It will be pur
chased and paid for and will be pre
sented to Ensign Winship on his
arrival here which will be in about
three weeks hence
At present Mr. Winship is in the
hospital at San Francisco where he is
undergoing treatment for the wounds
received in battle and as soon as he
can secure leave he will come at once
The committee which was appointed
at a citizens meeting held some time
ago, is very grateful to the public for
its hearty and liberal response in giv
ing funds to aid in the plan proposed
and as soon as the next meeting is
he'd the gift to be decided on will be

Millions Given Away.
It is certainly gratifying to the public to
know of one concern in the land who are
not afraid to be generous to the needy and
suffering. The proprietors of Dr. King’s
New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs
and Colds, have given away over ten mill
ion trial bottles of this great medicine; and
have the satisfaction of knowing it has ab
solutely cured thousands of hopeless cases.
Asthma, Bronchitis, Hoarseness and all
diseases of the Throat, Chest and Lungs
are surely cured by it. Call on J. N. Har
ris & Son, or Carlisle & Ward, druggists,
and get a free trial bottle. Regular size

CLEAN STREETS IN BERLIN.
Residents Vie With Each Other in
Making Them Presentable
Bicyclists who have ridden much
on the asphalt, streets of German cities
. say that the tendency to "side slip” is
. there much less marked than on simi
lar pavements in this country. The
explanation of this fact may possibly
lie in the statement which is made by
the American consul at Breslau that
the asphalt streets in that city are
regularly washed, the purpose of the
washing being to remove the slime
which the asphalt seems to leave and
to keep the street from being slippery.
The washing has the further effect of
preserving and hardening the asphalt.
The care taken of the asphalt by the
. city authorities contrasts strongly with
the methods usually adopted in the

the consulate is divided into four
squares, which are in charge of one

row load of very fine, sharp sand and
scatters it lightly over the streets to
prevent slipping. On rainy days the
process is repeated several limes.
Once a week the whole street is
sluiced and thoroughly washed with
sprinkling carts. These are followed
by ample roller brushes, which sweep
the water and slime into the gutter,
whence it is carted away. After this
the man who has charge of the street
comes along with his wheelbarrow
and sand sprinkler. In spring or
autumn, when the streets are often
sloppy and wet, the washing is done
several times during the week.
The man in charge of the asphalt
pavement is paid 5 cents an hour, the
ordinary st reel hands receiving 4 cents.
Nobody litters up the street or puts
sweepings on the pavement. There is
I a box kept for these. Wire baskets
are fastened on lampposts, against
houses, fences or trees in which the
public may throw waste paper while
walking along. The citizens are very
proud of their clean and sweet smelling

Shut Out From Both Sides.
•’Corpl.” James Tanner told a new
: story at a private dinner a couple of

the New York Tribune.

soldiers, while on the other hand Gen,
Jubal Early was quite a profane man.

GRIFFIN, GEORGIA, FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 23, 1899:
Lightning and Its Work.
The weather bureau lias i»so<d a
, bull'tin devoted to statistics rooreiu
ing lightning The bulletin, which is'
No. 2(J, is both a novel and interesting
one, says the Columbus Enquirer,
Aside from statistics showing (he losses
by lightning in 1898, it contains some
general information that it is well the
public should know. One feature ex
plains the nature of discharges of i
lightning, in connection with which;
rules are laid down for the proper con- ■
struction of lightning rods Few of
i these rods are properly constructed,
the bulletin explains, which is unfor
tunate, as the rods are considered as
fairly reliable safegards against elec
’ trical discharges. When not construct
ed in the right way, the rods either
court danger to the building or do no
good at all. Farmers are especiallj’
interested in tbs 'statement that at
least one-third of the losses of stock
. destroyed by lightning arc due to wire
fences, the animals often being killed
at a considerable distance from the
point where the bolt falls, on account
of wire fences.
Strange as it may seem, the open
countrj’ is the most dangerous place
during an electrical storm. The large
cities are the safest places. The dan
ger from lightning is greatest io North
Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Col
The bulletin shows that in 1898 the
number of houses destroyed by light
ning was 1,800, the losses reaching a
total of $1,500,000 During the same
period 367 lives were lost by lightning
and 494 persons were badly injured.
The bulletin states that most of the
people killed were in houses or under
trees. Only a few were struck down in
open space. The ratio of deaths from
lightning in this country is about five
persons in a million, which is about
the same as in Austria and Germany.
The ratio of deaths is lees in England,
Norway and Sweeden. The bulletin
contains a good deal of additional in
formation on the subject, but-the most
important features have been briefly

The Limit of Speed in Naval Vessels-
The 420-ton destroyers lately ordered
by the United States government are
an improvement on the usual type,
but we must go a good deal further in
the same direction to obtain u vessel
meeting all the conditions that inch
vessels must meet in sea service.
Recent acquirement of territory by
the United States makes it necessary
that such vessels fur its navy shall
have a much greater radius of action
and shall be treated differently. In
fact, if a speed of thirty knots or more
is aimed at, a sufficiently staunch sea
going vessel cannot be produced in
the present state of the art. To obtain
thirty knots within the boats now
credited with that speed, a supreme
effort under expert management is re
quired, which is seldom repeated in
the life of a boat.
If the thirty-knot torpedo boat de
stroyer’s machinery were more sub
stantial, so that full power could be
exerted at any time without risk, and
if the hull were sufficiently strong to
stand a moderate sea without danger,
its speed would be about twenty-seven
knots. Yet I venture to say that such
a boat, if ordered to reach a point at
sea, say, 100 miles distant, would, un
der ordinary conditions, reach that
point iti lees time than would be re
quired by the regulation thirty-knot
boat, which is said to gel a horse power
