John ScriiKU* Ha* Not Been nhlr to
Explain the Occurrence.
Valdosta. Ga., Aug 21—After nearly two
lays of unconsciousness, Mr. John
Scruggs regained his senses yesterday
evening and has partially explained how
he came in that condition. Mr. Scruggs
ii a young man who attended the State
I University last term, and when the col
j lege closed for vacation he accepted a
traveling position to enable him to finish
his course in college.
His business called him to Moultrie, and
from there he intended to visit his par
ents in this county, Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Scruggs of the Ousley district. Saturday
night when the train drew up to the sta
tion here he was found in an unconscious
condition between the first-class car and
the sleeping car in the vestibule. His
pockets had been rifled of $75 in money
and a ring had been token from his fin

He was taken into the depot here and
several physicians were summoned. A
careful examination failed to show any
marks of violence, though he winced at
the slightest touch upon the back of his
h*ad. He was moved to Dr. Burton's res
idence and his parents summoned- He
remained unconscious until yesterday,
whrn he stated that he bought a ticket
irom Boston to Ousley end that when
the train came to a slow-down for the
station he went to the door to gei off.
He stated that the train did not stop,
but that as it jerked to gather up is
s-peed, he fell and remained there until
the train stopped here. PFS?r.gers on
the train say that it did not stop at
Ousley, but ihat it came to a flow-down
at the river just beyond, and it is doubt
less that young Scruggs received h s
What became of his money and ring,
in the meantime, is a mystery. There
have \ en a dozen theories advanced in
regard to the case—some alleging that
he might have been sand-bagg and. and
rone of them are entirely satisfactory.
Mr. Scruggs is an excellent young man
snd the mysterious case has attracted
much attention here.

It was the dullest time for we ks in
the harbor yesterday. Not a single ves

Bay to the Atlantic and through the
Gulf of Mexico to the Mississippi, where
it will be stationed for use at the naval
station at Algiers, La.
It must be <1 livered to Unc’e Sam by
Nov. 1, and in the event of failure on
the part of the company to complete it
by that time $209 f>r every delay of
twenty-four hours will bed and icted from
the contract price of $819,000. The work
of core ruction is now being pushed to
a finish. Part of the shipyard has been
fenced off, the forr shore has been
scooted to form a her h and the dredged
mat rial arranged so as to form a coffer
dam. A platform of timbers was laid

tion are very active and are anxiously
awaiting the result of the Democratic
primary' election, which occurs next Tues
day, Aug. 28.
County Treasurer H. Q. Adams has no
opposition to his re-election and his ad

fills has been most acceptable to all con
cerned. Clerk of Court C. L. Paul is also
without opposition. Mr. Paul is a com
petent and courteous official. Mr. R. E.
Jenkins, the sheriff of Beaufort county,
is very popular with all classes and not
withstanding the fact that he is opposed
by Mr. Daniel Mann, his re-election, it
is said, is almost a foregone conclusion.
County Auditor H. C. Pollitzer is also a
candidate for re-election. Mr. Pollitzer
has proved himself a most efficient pub
lic servant. Mr. Frank T. Hardee, coun
ty superintendent of education, is opposed
by Mr. N. E. H. Dopson. The county su
pervisor. Mr. Wilson Sanders, is a candi
date for re-election and has no opposition.
The coroner, Dr. R. R. Sams, is also with

Brown was thrown violently upon the
hard shell street, striking on his left
knee. He did not release the reins, and
displayed admirable nerve in handling his
frightened horse. Nothing but the young
man’s superb control of the frightened
animal, which had started to run away,
prevented the loss of property’ and possi
bly life. As it was. the young man’s
knee was painfully bruised and one of
the shafts of his vehicle w r as snapped off.
