NOT FROM A CENTRAL SLEEPER.
Mr. Halle Soys Central Is >'ot to
llla ine for F.vlrtion of Mrs. Miller.
Mr. J. D. Haile says that the action for
damages brought by Mrs. J. D. Miller of
Mclntosh. Fla., against the Central of
Georgia Railway Company, of which he is
the general passenger agent, is not found
ed on any facts that would justify a re
covery against the Central.
“The sleeping car from which Mr?. Mil
ler was ejected, if she was ejected from
any, was not one cf those owned and op
erated by the Central on its regular
trains,” said Mr. Haile. “She boarded in
Atlanta a Pullman car which fan from
Nashville to Jacksonville, and which was
being hauled on the Central train only
from Atlanta to Macon. If there was an
ejectment or any improper treatment, it
must have been at the hands of the Pull
man people. I beg leave to state posi
tively and upon authority that there was
no ejection from a Central Railway
deeper, and that there was no improper
treatment by any of the employes of the
Central of Georgia Railway Company.”
There is. of course, an issue of fact be
tween Mrs. Miller and her attorneys,
Rosser & Carter, of Atlanta, and the offi
cials of the Central. She is suing the
Central of Georgia Railway, and not the
Pullman Palace Car Company for dam
ages. though it was a Pullman sleeper,
and she claims to have been rudely and
discourteously treated by the employes or
an employe of the former. What the
actual facts in the cose are and whether
the- plaintiff or the defendant is in the
right, the Morning News cannot under
take fo say. The story of the plaintiff’s
side of the controversy is taken from the
petition filed by her counsel in the office
of the clerk of the United States Circuit
Court; Mr. Halle gives the contention of
the Central. The trial of the case wi.'l
decide which is in the right.
Railway tickets do not contain a con
tract to stop the train and recover any
property that a passenger may have drop
ped overboard, but Q?e Burlington people
seem to be nearly accommodating enough
to do this. Recently a pocket book con
taining $109.25, a gold ring, four rubies
and other valuables, was lost by a pas
senger on the Saint Louis-Portlaml Ex
press. Just where was not known, and
the train was advancing fifty miles an
hour. From the first ©top the lose* was
wired to Supt. Phelan at Alliance, Neb.,
who immediately sent out a searching
party. The pocketbook and jewels were
found near the track, three miles from
Whitman, and were returned to the sur
prised owner the next day.
A law' went Into effect in Virginia on
July 1, requiring railroads to furnish
separate cars for white and colored pas
sengers on local trains. An effort is be
ing made to have the provision applied
as well to through fast trains and to s a
tion waiting rooms.
A Colorado road will discontinue the
name "brakeman” on irs passenger train?,
for the reason that the braking is now
done by air instead of muscle, and sub
stitute the title “first assistant conductor.'
"second assistant conductor,” and so on.
W’hile f>62 persons in the United State
*rere killed by lightning last year, only
239 passengers were killed in railway ac
cidents. “As likely as being struck by
lightning” should be superseded by “as
likely as being killed on the cars.” re
marked the Railway Age, when compar
ison with an improbability is desired.
Increased traffic and deceased rates Is

In the United States. The last figures of

port an Increase In comparison with the
preceding year of 22,109,827 passengers and
*0.757,276 tons of freight carried. But the
average earnings |>er passenger per mile
w *re only 1.925 cen, against 1.973 ient the
year before, and the freight
revenue was but .724 cent per
ton per mile, compared with .753 cent In

gins to show transportation rates so low.
The Central Railroad has stopped car
rying passengers on its freight trains in
( Borgia. For several years the company
permitted passengers holding mileage
***** to travel on freight trains, provided

fotppany from any liability for personal

riding on the train was Important to
traveling salesmen. Some time ago a pass

recovered damages. The Supreme

Co,J rt. which held that the release con

Editor Savannah Morning News: I am

The sphinxes have, of late, been the
subject of much dispute. I have traveled,
perhaps, over more than 50.C0J miles in
the last thirty years, both in this country

times?) I think I have never seen great

when the bodies of Bartow and Bee were

and I shall never forget that sight and
the impression that it made on me.
It has been suggested that the monu
ments of Bartow and McLaws be erected
In some suitable place. Why not remove
the objectionable sphinxes and place the
monuments there? Everyone who visits
the perk would see them, which would
not be the case if they were placed in

A QI EEIt C RY FROM FLORIDA.
Northern “ I nvn tiers’* of Ynrlon*
Sorts mill of Very Little Profit.
From the Jacksonville (Fla.) Times-lJnion.
An old Florida farmer gave a new
comer the following shrewd bit of advice:
"We raise two kinds of corn in Florida;
one kind is ('ailed Merchant’s corn, worth
80 cents to $1 n bushel; the other is call
ed Farmer’s corn, worth 60 to 75 cents a
bushel. I advise you always to plant
An important difference between the*e
two varieties of corn not remarked ui>on
by the old farmer, is (hat one variety
is raised with cotton seed and the other
with cotton money. The latter kind, very
naturally, tastes of money; therefore it
makes better corn bread.
It has been computed by a distinguish
ed scientist that a four-year-old Florida
steer travels 18.000 miles In quest of his
feed before he is finally brought to the
block. This, of course, Imparts length
nnd strength to his muscular fibre; and
jumping over so many logs In the course
of four years tie? knots In it. makes it

a narrow’ field, spends his life in inaction,
principally in eating, finishes It in a

which makes his flesh short, thick, and
tender. His car(*as? sells in Jacksonville
for 10 cents n pound, the range steers
for 6>2 or 7. The principal difference be
tween* the two breeds, you perceive, Is
that one does the most of his traveling
while he is alive, the other after he s
dead. Florida farmers ought to raise the
breed that travels after U is dead. The
greatest objection to this breed is th*4f
the ow r ner has to get up in he morning
and feed them corn and timothy, ond

again at noon, and once more at night, j
and batten the cracks in the stable, and
feed them cracked ice, especially after
they are in the refrigerator; while the
other breed will feed themselves wire
grass and Spanish moss while the owr.tr
etls in the shade.
Another invader of the sacred soil of
Florida is the universal Yankee consump
tive, but this breed, fortunately, we do
r.ot raise in Florida; hence we do not
"plant” him—well, hardly ever—but we
cultivate him; we “do" him. we harvet-t
and we cure him and send him on his way
rejoicing. Said a noted dealer in orano
nursery stock. “Before the war I sold
slaves; after the war I sold Yankees.”
Well, is it quite so certain as to who ww
sold? The “sick Yankee” comes down
here, erects his hotel, and conducts it
with his hired help, and when the Flor
ida farmer calls to visit him he invites
him in and feasts him on Northern cei
ery—an article which the Florida farmer
wanted to sell him, but could not because
he had not enough to make a dinner.
He sells the Northern invalid orange
trees and fertilizers; perhaps no oranges
result, and the Northerner feels that he
has been sold. Presently the Flori la farm
er ship? some produce to the North, and
when it arrives the startling discovery is
made (hat the railroatl companies and
commission men raised it and It belongs
to them. It was not the right variety of
produce. The right kind of stuff is raised
in gilt-edged crates and the leaves ate
made of greenbacks. The railroad compa
nies do not raise that kind of produce, it
has to be manured with brains, not with
fishplates. When the Northerner ships po
tatoes and cahhages down here, they are
of the right variety. We have to pay
good money for them before we get them.
As remarked - above, Florida does not
raise consumptives, so there is only one
variety, the Northern. Bur we do raise
tourists, and the variety is different from
that of the North. The Northern variety
migrate in the winter and they purchase
chiefly climate; the Florida variety mi
grate in the summer, and they purchase
a little climate, hut a vast deal of fash
ion, besides wardrobes, carpets, furniture,
Florida grows hickory as well as Indi
ana. but it does not seem to be of the
right variety for the manufacture of wag
on spokes. If the trees are cut and shipped
up North, however, and the lumber is rasp
ed with silver and sandpapered with
greenbacks, they make excellent w’agon
wheels, which Florida farmers greatly ad
mire and purchase. The trouble is with
Florida hickories cut to be manufactured
here, they are not felled .In the right
“sign of the moon.” And the, sign is never
right, because in the summer it is too not,
and in the winter the people have a crop
of Florida’s money-bringers to look after.
Among the latest Northern Invaders of
Florida and the most unwelcome of all
are the rot and the curcullo in our peaches
and the blight in our pears. Where once
these fruits grew’ in primitive purity and
w’Jthout blemish, they are now polluted
with these vile intruders, fo that only the
utmost vigilance on the part of the grow
ers. w'ith spray and Insecticide, can save
our crops In decent condition.
In the face of the apparent heavy bal
ance of trade against Florida—everything
invading the state in quest of our ready
money—it is some consolation to reflect
that Florida must have the money, or
these invaders would not be so persistently
coming after it. As the farmer said,
after he had been swindled out of his
year’s crop of cotton 'by the bunko men, “I
made my money before I lost it. I can do

From the Baltimore Sun.
“Liberal reward to any one who will fell

substance of on advertisement which a
certain gemleman of this city is thinking
of inserting in the Sun.
The Chinese situation or the national
election are just at present givinig him
much less concern than the whereabouts
of his charming family. Strange as it
may’ seein, the family know nothing of

in receipt of letters from his w’ife almost
daily and she is worried because the let

state of affairs came about in this wise;
Mr. P was informed some days ago
by his wife that she had arranged <o
spend some weeks nt a country place and
in due time, with the children, she start

That evening, w’hen the husband and
father had written the “daily loiter,” he

He remembered Pekin, Tien Tsin, Che

name of that summer resort—it had gone
entirely. Never mind, he would know
when his wife wrote.
But he had not reckoned on the femi
nine method of dating or not dating let
ters. It began as most such letters do
bc-gin—without date line, just plain
“Thursday” written at the bottom, to the
left of the signalure. Then he studied
the postmark, but it was mailed on a
train and unintelligible, anyhow. The
days passed. He is still getting letters,
dated “Monday” and “Wednesday” and
the other days, but containing no inkling
of the name of their starting point.

husband does not write, and her letters
contain reproaches mingled wlrh fears
that Mr. P is sick; but, she says, sure

The husband Is getting grayer rapidly

From the Philadelphia Record.
Atlantic City, N. J.. July 27.—While
Miss Addle Brown, a Washington belle,
was in the surf for her morning’s barn
to-day she was unexpectedly by
the current out into deep we:er. Charles
Allison, a business man of Philadelphia,
saw Miss Brown? danger from a pier.
He dropped over the edge of the pier,
i to w’hleh he clung with both hands and
dangled his feet close to the water. Then
he called to Miss Brown to catch on.
and so rhe did. Friends held the man’
hands and Life Guard New. omb came
to the rescue and took the girl to shore.
Allison then dropped and aMempted to
swim ashore, but found the current too

was hauled in.
GHOST HAD RHEUMATISM.
Old Salt Tell* of Meeting a Loqua
From the New' York Times.
” ’Taint always the smell of gunpowder
nor the rattle and bang of guns in battle
that scare a man most." said the boat
swain’s mate during a discussion of fislu*
near the navy yard gate the other day.
The speaker had worked a gun on the
Gloucester under Wainwrlght during the
Spanish war. had served ihree months be
tween cruises on a rebel gunboat that was
shot almost to pieces under him during
the Brazilian insurrection, and had iwo
fingers missing which had gone to feed a
hungry shark off the Nicaraguan coast.
"No, Sirree. Not by a long shot," con
tinued the speaker positively, blowing the
foam off gemly, “and it isn’t always tho
tight places a seafaring man gets into in
the weather line that will throw’ the gen
uine panic into him. I’ve been caught in
a howling pampero in Montevideo harbor
while going off to the ship in a steam
launch, and was on one of ihe old frigaies
once that was whirled about for two <lays
in a typhoon off the Java coast, and I’ve
caught as many hurricanes about the Lee
ward Islands as any of this present com
pany, I guess, but none o’ these sort of
things, as you know, ever propertly makes
a feller’s hair rise and sends a paper of
needles cavorting up nnd clown his spine.

a man think of home and mother a bit.

I recollect, and it came at a lime and
place where a man w’ould leastwdse ex
pect it. It was ten years ago and more,
and whenever I think about the darn-fool
occurrence I feel the need of a drink.
\ GrneKoine Harbor.
“It happened in the harbor of Callao,
which place I guess some of you know
well, nnd those that do remember old 6 m
Lorenzo Island, which stretches gloomy
like olong the harbor with big wastes of
peculiar lookin’ sand #hat not even
will inhabit. Well, we was a lying thPiv
in the harbor on the occasion I’m spenkir.'
about in the San Francisco, Capt. fvamp
eon. and the Chaplain one Sunday was
for givin’ us the history of San Lorenzo,
which stretched along our storboard side.
He said that from the stories of the- Peru
vians. old Padre Lorenzo lived around
them parts a saving of souls and curing
of the sick in the days when the bay didn't
have a iainnrl to bless itself with.
“One doy the good man was out in the
bay in a small boat fishing when a storm
came up nnd the padre’s boat was ship
pin' water and threatenin’ to capsize, wnen
suddenly the land rose up out of the
water and left Father Lorenzo nnd his
boat high and dry. Thle island was named
San Lorenzo. Nothing much ever grower!
on It, however, and Iho Peruvians have
used it principally for burial ground?
Every time Cnlino has a plague of fever
(and that's pre(ty frequent) they dumps
the dead over San Lorenzo and covers
them. Sometimes they didn’t cover them
very deep, either, and the climate is so
dry, it raining there, that the bodies
just dry up. mummylike, and frequent
the hair just keeps on a growing. Maybe
it’s this that keeps the innabitants con-*
fined to one little settlement of fishermen
nt the point nearest the city.
“Well, as I was saying, we were lying
about three miles from the city, and my
port of the ship was sent across to San
Lorenzo one day for small-arm target
practice. I had leave to go ashore that
evening, and when we finished target
practice the officer in charge told me if T
wanted, instead of going back to the ship
and getting ashore in the ship’s boat, I
could walk down the island to the fishers’
village nnd get one of the dagos there to
row me across to the city.
The GhoNt’s Walk.
“It was getting pretty late in the even
ing when I started aeross the. gloomv
old island, and the peculiar stories I had
listened to about the place made me a
little shaky; and the sights was depress
ing. Every little while I’d run across a
few human hones sticking out of the
ground, and here and there would show a
dried-up, withered skull. There wasn’t
a sound anywhere, ond I began to wish
pretty bad that I was in one of the big
dance halls in the Call? de Piuro. It was
settling dark fast, and I was stumbling
on in a panicky way, trying to laugh at
my foolishness, when just as I turned a
sand humm-uek I came on a sight that
made every hair a sail needle. I stopped
dead etlll, for I couldn’t ’a' moved a mus
cle if my life depended on it. I seemed
;o turn sick all over.
\ Rheumatic Spirit.
“There, not half a ship’s length away,
sticking out of the sand, was a human
head, and turned directly toward me. The
horror of it was that this head didn’t have
the eyes dried up into black holes, but
burned 'bright and stared nt me. Stared
right into my innermost parts and froze
’em up. This- must have been all for a
second, of course, but It seemed an hour
that I stood there like a stone, not being
able to take my eyes from the thing. The
hair was not long, but it needed a comb,
and the cheeks were dull and leathery. I
had no mind to think of ghost stories or
anything. I couldn’t think. My eyes
couldn't do nothing but look into them
other two coals. Then I saw the face of
the thing break into a horrible grin.
“ 'Hello, my lad.’ it said in rather a
weak voice, but In good old English. You
seem to be frightened a bit about some
thing. Don’t be alarmed, howsotnever.
I’m the captain of that English bark you
see over in the harbor there. I'm ’alf lead
with rheumatism, and I’m Just over here
takin’ the San Lorenzo sand bath. It's
great for rheumatics.’
“Then I knew that I’d been a fool and
my eye* began to swim, my heart, which
had been stopped still, began to pound my
ribs like a trip-hammer, and I became as
weak as a cat. I sat right down in the
sand nnd wiped the sweat off my fevered
brown for five minutes.
Tin* Head Treated Him.
“Then I began (o notice things and saw
this British bloke's clothes piled up a doz
en yards away, and took In ihe situation.
" ‘Yes,’ broke in this weak voice again, ‘I
come over her© every evening to this God
forsaken place and get this sand treat
ment. One of my men Is whh me, but
he has Just gone over to the village to get
a bit of aguardiente. Here he Is now com
ing back wiih it. You’d better have a
drop. You don’t look well.’
“The other sailor came up with ih •
liquor, and I took a pull nt it that made
the botile look sick. 1 finally got across
to Callao and got on such a spree that a
guard of marines had to round me up and
lake me back to the ship a week later,
and that’s about he only time I might ?.ay
I was really scared In my life."

man to-day, “how ‘Billy’ r, one of
our representatives in Congress, got his
start in politics? It whs about fifteen
y .irs ago. when Joe Mnckin, Mike Mc-
Donald. nnd others of their class were su
preme In the management of local public
affairs. One of Mai kin's lieutenants came
io the chief one day, just after the pri
maries had been held, and remarked that
there was a young man named Ix>rhrier
who ought to be 'taken care of’ before
things went any further. Markin an
swered that he had no more place* to
give. The lieutenant explained to him
that Lorimer’s case wafc a very pressing
one, as he. kept the street cor rmn ‘round
ed up,’ always 'delivered' them, made no
trouble, and altogether was too
fo be neglected. This interested Marrkln,
who sent for Lorimer, and after a talk
decided that he was. as described, h man
to be taken care of. Taking from his
pigeon-hole a list of the names of the m'n
selected as candidates at the primaries,
he ran over them with tomo care, and
finally put a check against that of a Pol sh
Jew who had been chosen as a candidate
4&r constable. This was a pretty good
Job if all the fees were gathered In, and
it struck Maekin that a bright young fel
low like Ix>rimer would probably make a
good deni more of it than the man who
had been picked out; so ha decided that
the primary voters must have made a
mistake, and running his pencil through
the name on the fist he wrote over It
that of Lorimer. The substitute candi
date was elected, did take, advantage of
the opportunities offered. as Maekin
thought he would, ond rose steadily in
politics until he was landed in a seat in
“I don’t know whether Lorimer ever
heard how he got upon that ticket or not.
Maekin ha.l a way of doing what he
pleased, nnd ‘saying nothing to nobody.’
This practlce.carried to extremes.resulted
some time later in sending him to the
Joliet penitemiarv for a five years’ term.”
