A MYSTERY TO SOLVE.
STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE OF AN
Thomas E. Little, Late Book-Keeper of
May & 00., Lost Since Tues
day—Where Is He?
“Thomas E. Little, Philadelphia, Pa.,” in a
clear, bold hand, was the signature that was
autographed on the hotel register of the High
tower house, about the 15th of May, nearly
three months ago.
He came here from New Orleans to receive
medical treatment at the hands of Dr. Calhoun,
being tioubled with a sore throat, which de
prived him of speech for two or three weeks
after coming here. a
His money being limited shortly after bis ar
rival here, be began to look around for some
thing to do so that be would be enabled to make
a living and to pay bis board bill. He Secured
a position with the firm of George 8. May 4 Co ,
who do business at 139 and 141 West Mitchell
street, at a very small salary, $5 or $6 a
meek, but be entered into bis work with a spirit
that made a most, favorable impression on bis
employers By bis regular hubica and Constant
business application be aeon gained ibe confi
dence of Messrs. May 4 Co. N jibing has been
given bitn to be done but wba il was executed
until the last mission he undertook to accom
plish on Tuesday morning.
Mr. Friiz, who has been in charge of the fac
tory for the past six weeks, since Mr. May, 'be
head of tbe firm, baa been north, gave Mr. Lit
tle a bill Tuesday morning, between 8 and 9
o’clock, to be carried to tbe round bouse of tbe
East Tennessee road for collection.
Mr. Little glanced around tbe office a moment
before leav.ug, and said be has going over to
tbe boaidiog bouse, meaning tbe Hightower
House, which is tbe third and fourth fluors over
James’ Bank, before presenting tbe bill for col
lection over at tbe round bouse. Mr. Fritz told
him all right—to burry back as he had some
thing else tor him to do when be returned.
Mr. Little walked into bis boarding house ten
minutes before 9, and being well acquainted
with tbe family, as sion as be rer.cbed tbe office,
not finding any one there, he rapped on the Ooor
of the proprietor’s room, and in response Mrs.
Hightower told him to come in and make him
She expressed some surprise at seeing him
home at such a early hour, and asked him why
he left the left the office of Mr. May so early.
Mr. Little replied that be had come up to give
her (Mrs. Hightower) some money to give to
bis washerwoman, accompanying this assertion
by throwing tbe uiouey m Her lap.
As soon as be had delivered tbe money to
Mrs. Hightower be turned round, bowed to her
and said be must be going as be had seme bills
which be wanted to collect before noon and as
be bad a long walk before him he must be going.
lie was probably half way down tbe stairs
when he turned round and retraced bis steps
and asked Mrs. Hightower where her husband
“He is asleep, Mr. Little, and I don’t want to
wake him up, as he was up very late last night
and needs the rest be is now enjoying. What
did you want with him ?”
“Ob, I only wanted to see him for a moment
and pay him som money. But I can do that at
Hurrying down the stairs he took one of the
Whitehall street cars for his destination.
Tbe next and last thing that was beard of him
was when be went to tbe foreman of Jones 4
Vance, who have the contract of building the
round house for tbe East Tenn , Va. 4 Ga.
railroad. He went to tbe foreman aud asked
him about some business matters, and was in
formed that everything was ready, and the
Slans were rolled up and banded to Mr. Little.
Ir. Little returned them to the foreman and
said: “1 have got another party to see before
going back to the city, and I will oome back and
get this before returning.”
That was the last seen of Mr. little by any
one in the city of Atanta.
A CAHTOi/man called on Mr. Fritz this morn
ing and asked him what be knew of the stranger
and what condition bis books were in on his sud
F ollowin is the statement of Mr. Fritz: “Mr.
Little is from Philadelphia and had been in New
Orleans, where he was taken sick. He remained
in the hospital three months and when he came
out his position bad been filled and be was with
out a situation. So be came to Atlanta for med
ical treatment as be had not entirely recovered
from his illness. He commenced work here
about June Ist and bus been prompt in his
business since be has been connected with the
firm. I sever discovered anything wrong
or any irregularity in his habits until Monday,
and then 1 think I detected the smell of whisky
on his breath. He bad his coat stolen from him
a few days ago, so 1 went to town and got him a
new suit—a cheap one—which only cost me ten
dollars. He had to wear it, as be had nothing
else fit to wear. I think he had about twenty
dollars ot his individual money on his person at
the time of his disappearance.
The suit of clothes and the money may have
causecTTiTm toTiave been foully deaTTwith down
in tbe rough part of town, where he was collect
ing. I went down to look at bis room and every
thing looks just like he had left it in the morn
ing before coming to work. I found a letter
there which I had given him to mail last Mon
“How were bis accounts?”
“Square to a penny. The last bill he collect
ed was for a dollar and sixty-six cents, which
was promptly entered on the cash book and the
money put in the drawer.”
“Well, what do you think of his disappear
“I think possibly he has either had a fit or some
one has killed him for his clothes and his mon
“Have you made any search for him, Mr.
“Yes, I have looked for him myself and have
given his description to both the'police and de
“Have you heard nothing from either?”
“No, I tare not.”
“Give me his description, and I will publish
“Little is about forty-five or forty-six years
old, and about five and a half "feet high, and
weighs about a hundred and fifty pounds. He
has burnside whiskers slightly gray and a clean
face with that exception. He had on a mixed
brown suit at the time of his disappearance."
The report of the police and detectives up to
the hour of going to press is that nothing has
been beard from the lost man.
“Said Aaron to Moses
Let’s cut eft'our noses.”
Aaron must have been a sufferer from ca
tarrh. The desparation which catarrh produces
is often sufficient to make people say and do
many rash things and many continue suffering
just »s if no such cure as t)r. Sage’s Catarrh
Remedy existed. It cures every case from the
simplest to the most complicated, and all the
consequences of catarrh. A person once cured
by Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Remedy will not be apt
to take cold again, as it leaves the mucous mem
branes healthy and strong. By druggists.

proves its value. By its use even a child can
instantly find any required letter or document,
move it at will, and replace it in the same man

can be examined without removing the cabinet

able system of filing, also have a “Rapid Roller
