thought that all of the talcs regarding

Cept. Dav;s. when asked what had in

Won Her Wngcr,
A romantic little story is connected
with a pretty young society lady of At

the present, who went to Fort Valley the
first of the peach season. She went on
a wager. Friends of the young lady in

stakes went to $350 and she came. Ar

thing mysteriously Interesting in th° case.

Marietta Journal: Miss Ruby Fleming,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George M.
Fleming, of this place, has a cat that is
rot only a fine mousor, hut has developed
a penchant to kill snakes. This cat is
a very fir.e one and wears ribbons end
bells, through the pettish scheme of Miss
Ruby. One doy last week she heard the
belle ringing vigorously. She went to
the door and saw n fight in the yard
shrubbery going on between the cat and
a very large moccasin snake. The snake
would dart Its head ©t the cat and she
would knock the head of the snake to
one side with her foot every time. Final
ly the cat grabbed the snake by the back
of the n**ck and shook it considerably.
Mr. Fleming then came to the rescue and
killed the snoke wbh a stick. A few
days afier, the Ikll on the cat began to
rng again in the front yard. Miss Flem
ing went out and found that the cat was
in another combat with n huge snake.
The cat put the snake to rout, and as the
snake attempted to run in at the door
Mr Fleming killed it also with n stick.
This \< a remarkable cat and one we
■would like to own.
Collision on Month western.
What came near being a very serious
accident happen'd Sunday night on ihe
fouthwi stf rn Hal way about one and a
half miles fr m the Mao ri depot. The
passenger train, which left Macon at 7:40
o'clock for Albany, John Reichert, con
ductor collided with a freight train. It
•eems that the freight train was back
ing across the main track into a side
trark and thice of the freight cars had
croßsed the main track when the Albany
passenger train came dashing along at a
speed of twenty miles per hour. The pas
senger engine ran into the freight train

the track, standing one of them a most on
end and badly damaging others The en
gine was not breken very much. It was
in charge of Engineer Tom Elfe He

expectedly. It had no business there and
as soon as Engineer Elfe saw the freight
he put on brakes, reversed his lever and
1 he and his fireman jumped safely from
the engine. They escaped with only a
few bruises. The Albany train contained
i quite a number of passengers, several of
whom were ladies. The collision was of
i considerable force, but fortur .* >’ no one

Heavy Tobacco Import*.
The recent Importations of tobacco at
Turn pa have almost swamped the Cue- j
toms House force. They are considera
bly behind in their appraisement, and the I
manufacturers have to wait their turn,
and sometimes it is several days before .
they can g*t their tobacco. The* - * is a
amount of it coming over now. but
it is only the advance guard of the lot
that will come over o few weeks later.

The crop of cassava around Sanford Is
expected to he large. The cassava is row
from three to five feet high. The Planter?
Manufacturing Company has about
700 acres under cultivation, and all their
plantations are in good condition. There
are nlso nearly 500 acres more in cultiva
tion in that section. Capt. B. O. Whitner

ought to have the capital. Voters ought
not to allow themselves to be deceived by

Such promises are seldom kept. It is said
that Atlanta promised s3.<io&.ono for the
capital of Georgia, and paid nothing The j

see if the mar. was ihe one wanted. An
officer arrived last night and took a look
nt eh* prisoner. He pronounced him not
to be the man wanted, although he said
the likeness was very striking.
Heavy Cigar Shipment*.
There w*re 531 cases of cigars shipped
from Tnmpa last week. These cases con
tained 2,705.00) cigars. For the corre
sponding week last year there were 196
eases of cigars shipped. They contained
950.000 cigare. This is 335 cases less than
were shipped last week axul 1,755,M0
cigars than were shipped at that time
For the year there have been 13,470 cases
of cigars shipped from Tampa. For the
corresponding period of last year there
were 9.991 cases shipped. The shipments
for this year contained 68,680,000 cigars,
while the last year’s shipments contained
19,955.000 cigars. This shows that this
year there have been 15.725.C00 more clgnis
shipped than for the corresponding period
of last year. All manufacturers report a
strong demand for cigars, in fact it is al
most a feverish demand that nil orders
now on file be placed. They say that
they hardly ever experienced such im
patience on the part of the jobbers.
The Government Tropical Gardens at
Miami, under the care of Supr. Dean, are
very promising, and the young plants
(from the seed) are making a very satis

j rare fruit, which he believes will be an

He also has several varieties of young
fruit trees from Honduras, also two wild
pineapple plants. These pines grow wild
: in the woods in Honduras, and are said
to lx- of a very superior variety. A young

The drought prevailing at the close of
the previous week in the Atlantic coast

many localities, while complaints of too
rank growuh, light bolls, weevil and boll

IS NOT ANXIOUS FOR WAR.
THAT IS WHAT COL. MELDRIM SAYS
OF THE FIRST CAVALRY.
The Commanding Officer Hn* Re
ceived no Letter* From Member* 1
of the Regiment Relative to a Ten
der of Service for Chinn Cum
paijen—Col. Meldrim Expresses His
Views I pon the Question of For- !
eign Wars and the Custom of Hast
ening to Tender Service—Georgia
Hussar* Nor Other Savannah Com
mand* Have Taken Action Along
No military command in Savannah has
ever held a meeting to consider a tender
of its services to the government for a
campaign in China. The time has never
appealed to the companies as ripe for
eucn action. As no tender of service was
made when it ceemed positive that oil
foreign ministers in Pekin had been slain,
it is extremely unlikely that anything
looking toward a tender will be made,
now that there seems to be every reason
to believe the ministers safe. Should
some radical change in the situation oc
cur, resulting in the thorough arousing
of the American people, services might
be offered, but the Chinese problem ia j
now, apparently, solving itself.
Col. P. W. Meldrim of the First Reg
iment, Cavalry, G. S. TANARUS., was asked yes
terday if he had heard from any of the
officers or men of his command relative
to China service. His reply was in the
negative. The question was induced by
the story from Atlanta, that letters had
been written Col. W. G. Obear, inspector
general, expressing a desire on the part
of fome of the cavalrymen to participate
in the war in China, and to have Col.
Obear at their head. Commenting upon
the story. Col. Meldrim said:
‘‘l do not think that the First Cavalry is
at all anxious to go to China. It is a body
of citizen soldiery, ready to do its duty
when called upon to discharge it, but not
anxious to become engaged in war. In
fact, there is no command less disposed
to engage in any unnecessary conflict, and
yet there is probably no command less
disposed to pose as "rough riders.” Cer
tain troops in the regiment are older than
the state. The men ore not adventurers,
or soldiers of fortune. They prefer to avoid
war by all honorable means, but they will
do their duty if the necessity for their
service should arise.
"I am utterly opposed to all this tender
of service. If the general government
should require troops from Georgia, there
is a regular method of procedure! If a
call If made upon this state ror n regiment
of cavalry, the Governor will probably
have the right to determine how he will
comply with that demand by the general
government. Gov. Candler, himself a sol
dier. would be allowed *o name the field
officers, and in that event anew regiment
might be organized, or some arrangement
might be made, whereby the present regi
ment would be recruited up. and the full
strength of a regiment In the regular
army, say 1.200, thus attained. The com
plete organiza tion then might be mustered
Into the service.
"Speaking for myself, I strongly hope,
that there,will be no necessity for Amer
ican blood to be shed on foreign soil.”
The Georgia Hussars, the only Savan
nah troop of the regiment, has never had
the matter up in meeting. Some of the
members of the troop have declared they
would respond should a call for their ser
vices be made, hut they are not making
any grandstand plays jui?t at present.

NAVAL STORES FIRMLY HELD.
FACTORS ONLY SELLING LIMITED
LOTS AT PRESENT.
The Turpentine Market Firm at 42
Cents n. Gallon—Rosins Firm and
Unchanged—Cotton Quiet and Un
changed—Local and Telegraphic
Morning News Office, July 31.
The feature of the markets to-day was
the firmness of naval stores, which are
being held at prevailing prices. While the
demand from some sources was not as
brisk as it has been, fac'tors did not see
any discouraging signs for the market. It
is the belief that conditions are such as
to hold the market in firm position and to
maintain present prices for a time. It was
not understood that any business was done
after the closing on a different basis from
the official market. The cotton market
closed quiet and unchanged, with nothing
new' in the situation. The demand for spot
cotton appears to he light at present,
which leaves the field rather inactive.
There is still some cotton offering, how
ever. so that any who may enter the mar
ket will not probably be disappointed in
getting what they want. The wholesale
markets were steady and active. In. the
produce line prices are stiffening for
fruits and other product, which is now
a little scarce, thereby imparting strength
to the market. Peaches have gone up
some.being now quoted from 75c to $1.25 per
six-basket carriers. The following resume
of the different markets will show the ton©
and quotations at the close to-day:
The cotton market closed quiet and un
changed to-day. Receipts of 480 bales
were reported, against non the same day

son have been 1,080.187. against 1,082,529
same time last year. There is a small
volume of business doing.

The Closing Quiet and Steady at De-
I cline of 3011 Points.
New York, July 31.—The cotton market
opened at a decline of 306 points and con
tinued generally weak throughout the ses
sion, except during brief intervals of ral
ly, caused by covering short contracts.
Following the opening call there was a
gradual decline until prices reached a
level 5017 points under ihe closing fig
ures of the previous day. All classes of
traders appeared to be selling. The shorts
displayed more confidence than has been
seen here for some time past. July con
tracts went out at about 9.05 c, having
since the first trade shown an extreme
change of 6.02 c and irt.2lc. Selling would
have been more active but for the fear
of manipulation in August cotton. One
party with extensive foreign connec
tions holds practically all the spot cot
ton here. At the weakest period of to
day’s session for futures there was some
buying by conservative parties for a re
action, upon the theory that the market
had been oversold and had in that way
become easily subject to any new bull
ish influence that might arise. Factors in
to-day’s decline were the 108 point decline
in Liverpool, the favorable weekly crop
bulletin from Washington; the generally
bearish character of crop ac
counts, unsatisfactory reports from
cotton goods centers, continued
indifference on the part of the
speculative public, weak Southern spot
market advices, full receipts, as far as
they cut any figure, and a lack of public
The market was finally quiet and steady
at a net decline of 3011 points.

New York, July 31.—Murphy & Cos. say:
Cotton in Liverpool closed 8-64rl below
yesterday on old and 1-64 to 2-64d on new
crop months. This matket ruling weak on
old crop positions on long selling, .new
crops rather easy on favorable weather
reports. A prominent house in Atlanta,
Ga. wires: "Crop condition in our sec
tion not satisfactory, not fruiting well.”
Dallas, Tex., wires: "Heavy rains re
ported in some sections, but don’t think
sufficient to do any harm.”
The following is the government crop
report: Weather over the eastern and
western parts of the cotton belt has been
such as to bring a material improvement
in the condition of cotton, but in the cen
tral districts it has suffered further from
continued rains. In Texas the crop has
been generally laid by in good condition
and is promising in many localities, whi e
complaints of too rank growth, light bods,
weevil and boll worms are reported.
New York. July 31.—A revision of prices
in wide sheetings to a lower basis has
been the chief feature to-day. in
bleached cottons there is a steady de
mand for moderate quantities at previ
ous prices Brown cottons continued dull
and irregular. Coars* colored cottons
slow. Prints in rather better request.
Print cloths film. Business in men’s
wear woolens at new prices is only mod
erate. Dress goods slow.
Tuesday, July 31.
Spirits Turpentine—The market for tur
pentine was very firm to-day n’t 42c, clos
ing firm and unchanged. There were
opening sales of 1.629 casks reported, and
further sales at the closing of 100 casks.
During the late hours it was said factors
had stronger faith in the strength of the
market, and were not eager to sell at
the market price. It was not. understood
that anything changed hands on a higher
basis, however, though It was asserted
that factors were inclined to hold for a
better price. The day’s receipts were 2,910
and the exports 1,051.
Rosins—The rosin market closed firm
and unchanged, with business on a mod
erate scale. Sales of 137 barrels reported
nt the opening call constituted the day’s
business so far as the official market was
concerned. The day’s receipts were 8,329,

STOCKS AND BONDS.
Some Animation Given to the Closing
New York, July 31.—Some animation
given to the closing dealings in the stock
market to-day by the conflicting move
ments of prices engendered by the upward
spurt in Union Pacific and the realizing in
Sugar. The break in Sugar proved the
more effective in its influence, and closed
weak at about the low level of the day,
after having shown considerable gains in
many stocks at an earlier period. The
trailing was dull, and continued entirely
in professional hands.
The early strength was reflected to soma
extent from the foreign e o?k markets,
which showed decided relief over the re
liable tenor of the news of the safety of
the envoys in Pekin. The small com
mit ments on the bear side put out yester
day were* closed up, helping the rise. A
number of statements of railroad net earn
ings for June published over night were
factors of strengih. This was notably
true of the Pennsylvania report on ac
count of the extern of the territory cov
ered by its lines and the exceedingly va
ried c haracter of its truffle, -which makes
its statements valued as accurate condi
tions in the general railroad world. The
stock of the company advanced 1% under
this influence, and the price was well
held through the latter part of the mar
ket, affording striking contrast to the in
difference with which June reports of
some other railroads were received.
The large net increase shown by the
Atchison system di<l rot avail to hold the
stock, and Burlington efter rising a
sharp fraction, fell below last night's level
on realizing when Its statement appeared.
The 2 per cent, semi-annual dividend of
Union Pacific had been counted upon with
certainty on account of the authoritative
character of the promises made. A reac
tion immediately followed by large and
aggressive buying for inside interest,
which carried ihe stock up 1%. This
strength was ineffective in pulling up the
rest of the list, in which the high level
of the morning had been availed of to re
new yesterday’s realizing movement.
Sugar fell abruptly to 120%, an extrem#
declire of 4 points, and American Tobac
co suddenly dropp *d 3 points in sympathy.
Metropolitan showed marked weakness
and the whole list fell to the lowest, Un
ion Pacific yielding a fraction. There was
some evidence of a speculative contest be
tween the frie.ids of Union Pacific and
Baltimore and Ohio on account of the at
tempt on the part of the bulls on Union
Pacific and bears on Baltimore and Ohio
to draw unfavorable comparisons between
the price of Union Pacific and Baltimore
and Ohio with dividend action f.et to be
taken. Brooklyn Rnpid Transit continued
rather active to-dey, but the movement
was not wide, and the stock saved a frac
tional net gain. There was a slightly
firmer tone to sterling exchange to-day in
spite of a shading of London discount
rate. The question of gold exports this
week remains undecided, with to-day’a
conditions against the probability.
The bond market was firmer to-day, but
very dull. Total sales, par value, $982,000.
