Tho 'Remarkable Career of Colonel Rich
ardson-He Rises from a Poor Boy to be
the Richest Planter in the World.
The death of Colonel Edmund Rich
irdson, the cotton king of the world,
which occurred at Jacksonl, Miss., on
Monday night. was not un!ike that of
William H. Vanderbilt in its sudden
ness and general character. le left
Jackson the Sunday before onavisit to
Vicsburg, and his son, W. B. Rich
ardson, who was with him there all dar
Monday, says he had never seen his
fartber in better apparent healhh or in
finer %piritL. 01 his return trip to
Jackson his fellow travelers comment
ed on his extreme jocularity. He ar
rived at $ackson at a little before 10
o'clock Monday night and went to
supper in the Edmunds House restau
rant. He intended taking the 1:30
ni.fht train for New Orteanq. After
supper he crossed the street to see
to some persons who were making
clothing for the convicts which he em
pluyed. A few moments later his
cries for help wero heard. lie knock
ed at the door of Nelson Potter, a col
ored man who lived next to the Euro
pean House. A colored woman opened
the door and Colonel Richardson
feebly staggered in and sank in a chair
before the fire. The frightened wotman
ran into the street for help, but before
it came he had fallen to the floor dead.
The breaking of a blood ve-ssel in the
brain-apoplexy-is ascribed as the
Several years ago the mother of Col.
Richardson, then ninety years old,
was on her way from North Carolina
to Jackson to spend the holidays with
her son, and died on the cars just be
fore reaching-her destination.
Col. Richardson was reported to be
the richest man in the Sonth. He wai
certainly the richest man in this see
tion of the South. Many years ago he
was a large planter in Mississippi, but
lost nearly all his properti by the war.
He afterwards established the firm of
Richardson & May, in New Orleans,
which became the largest cotton
house in the 'world. It is said to have
handled 120,000 bales of cotton a year,
and its aggregate dealingi were put at
over $10,000,000 per annum. Col.
Richareson's personal.fortune is esti
mated at between $5,000,000 and $6,
Col. Richardson was the most exten
sive planter of cotton in the world.
He had seventeen thousand acres nnder
cultivation, and his average harvest
was twelve or thirteen thousand bales.
He had, besides, a large area planted
in corn, oats and miilet. In all, he
had 20,000 acres of land under cultiva
tion. To the practical plhnter, fami
lar with the difficulties or c >:tni plant
ing, these figures speak volimes. No
one else can appreciate t he executive
ability requisite to conduct success
fully such immense plantitig opera
Col. Richardsoa was born in Cas
well eounty, North Carolina, six miles
from Danville, Va., then only a vil
lage, on June 28, 1818. His father,
James Richardson, was a country
merchant and planter, and died in 1826.
leaving a widow and seven children.
When about ten years of age young
Richardson wn. sent to Nhat was
called an "oldILd -chool.'' When
the boy was foarteen years old his
mother obtained for- him a situation in
Danville at $30% year and board.
That mother must have been a woman
of great force and character; so anxious
was she that her'boy should be able to
save his salary that-she had his clothes
spun and wove; at homse. She fur
nished him iith monsey for candy and
other boyish uecessaries of existence
and for an occasional vi-t to some
passing circus. "5And how much," he
once asked, "do you suppose I saved
out of that salary ? - tWhy, just $30."
After havtng remained in Danville
four years he removed to Clinton,
Miss., when he obtained a position at
$75 a month. bni .wyar's time he
again retureAtoAVirginia and ob
tained a position in Brandons, and in
the following fall went into business
ot. his own 4cebn. He soon sold
out, however,Nwnd moved to Jackson,
Miss., where he worked as a clerk
until 1840. In that year the executor
of his mosher's estate settled with him,
turning over to him '2,800 in money
and a few negroes. He then estab
lished himself as a-merchant and con
tinued in business at Jackson until.
1848. By that time hethaid made about
#30,000, which in those days was
thought to be a fine :start in life. In
May of that year 4ie married Mis
Patton, of Huntsville, Ala.,.a sister of
ex-Govertnor Rooert- Patton of that
Statc. and engaged in planting. In
1850 he agaid., ient into business at

The Regent Park Lakes the Scene of An
other Accident--No Lives Lost. Owing to
the Shallow Water-Intense Excitement
What might have proved to have I
been a nost serious disaster accident, I
rivalling the disaster of 1867, occurred t
on the 10th inst. in Regent's Park,
L-ndon. The weather was delightful,
thoug j a thaw had set in, and tae lakes
in the parks werecrowded with skaters
who have had a "royal time" of it
during the recent severe weat her
throughout Great Britain. As there
was a prospect that a thaw would sootm
put an end to the sport, an unu-IaI
number of persons were enjoying
themselves on the ice. uddenlv Mere
was a series of loud, cracking- report ,
and the ice on one of the ponds gave
war and at least a hundred Ien,
women and children were sublerged
in the chilling water beneath. A er'
of horror 4-rose from the vast t hrong
of people on the ice and in the neil
borhood of the lakes, while those whe
were lucky enough to escape made a
hasty scramble for the shore. The
"life-savers" and p;lice, assisted by
hundreds of volunteers, soon pulled
out the drenched pleasure-seekers
from amid the slabs of floating ice.
Women and children naturally suffered
the most from their involuntary cold
bath, but up to the present, thanks to
the fact that the water was not very
deep. no serious results haue been re
ported. Intense excitement prevailed
throughout London when the news of
the accident was spread throughout
the city, many recalling the fatal 15th
of Jan'uary, 1867, when, in the sanme
park, at least two hundred people
were suddenly submeiged through the
breaking of the ice, forty-one of whom
Previous to the calamity of 1867
there were a 1-ing series of isola ed
accidents on the ice, which did not
seem to have put the authorities upon
their guarJl, which was crowned by
one of fearful magnitude. The iceten
had openly expressed opinions that
the ice was unsafe, being formed
chiefly of melted snow, yet about 500
skaters were permitted to exercise
upon it on the afternoon in question,
and over two thousand people watched
theirgraceful movements with pleasure.
Suddenly, and without any warning,
the ice at the sides gave way and in a
few seconds the entire sheet split up
into fragments a few yards square.
A general rush was made to the banks,
which, unfortunately, broke up the
soft ice into smaller pieces. Scores of
skaters who had been enjoying them
selves on its surface slipped down be
tween the pieces and appeared to be
at once sucked nuder the ice. A few,
with great presence of mind, threw
themselves flat upon the surface of
the broken ice, and thus preserved
their own lives and were instrumental
in saving others. As it was, at least
20 persons were at one time strug
gling in the water and uttering heart
renting appeals for assistance. The
ice-men on duty, assisted by hundreds
of spectators and the police, did their
best to drag people to luind, but in the
excitement of the first moments' sur
prise many went down never to rise
to the surface again alive, the slabs of
broken ice floating on top of their
struggling forms. Men, women and
ahildren were seen clinging to the
edges of the broken ice, shoutiig for
assistence, which those who witnessed
their sufferings were powerless t
render, and in a brief time, chilled at~d
benumnbt-d, sank with a few faint
waves above the water. A strong
force of police was soon on the spot
and rendered great service in pre
serving order and prmitting system
atic e orts to be mad for recoveritng the
bodies. Tnc number drowned was
finally found to be forty-one, and. the
calamity threw a feeling of sadness
over the entire metropolis. After this
event the newspapers were crowdeld
with comtmunicationis suggesting pilns
for preventing the recurrence of such
a disaster, among them being the fill
itng up of the lakes to a certain depth,
the latter suggestion, being acted upon
shortly afterwards, and it is doubtless
due to this fact that no lives were lost
by the recent catast rophe.
Regent's Park is situated in tha
northern portion of London, anid
covers an area of 470 acres, occupying
the site of Mary lebone Park, w hich in
the time of Queen Elizabeth was used
as a hunting ground. Regent's Park
owes as preservation to the intention
of George III. to ereet a royal palace
withitn ils grounds. The Park coni
tains the gardens of -the Zoological
Society and of the Royal Botanical
Society, as well as the grounds of a
few .putrate villas. In stummter time
the northern hialf oft ne park is devoted
to cricket, and In the southest car'eer
there is a flower garden of antique
design. The artific:ial lake, the scene
of the late accident, is situated in the
southwest port iot of the park.

A DiAgusted Florida Colony.
Of the one hundred colonists from
Scotland who were induced by glow
ing promises of fertile lands and bir
fortunes in the southwestern section of
Florida to emigrate to that place last
November not one is contented inl his
new home. The place selected for the
founding of the colony is Sara Sota,
the land at which has been found to
consist of white sand, and is not in
any respect up to what it was war
ranted to be by the circulars and pros
pectuses furnished the immigrants.
One of the colonists on his way bsek
to Scotland stopped over in Savannah
a day or two and told a doleful story
of his experience and that of the other
members of the party. He ascribes
the mistake of his associates to a too
ready acceptance of roseate colored
descriptions contained in the circulars
sent out by the promoters of the
scheme. Hie blames the agent for not
giving the colonists a correct idea of
what they had to expect, and thinks
that the wise thing for colonists to do
before leaving comfortable homes for
a new country is to send an agent of
their own chosing to select a location
and arrange for accommnotlation. Most
of the colonists have deterined to
return to their own country.

BLOOD BALM Co.: It is a great pleasure
to us to state to you that your B. B. B,
takes the lead of all blood puritiers in this
country, on account of the cures It has
effected since we have handled it. We had
a case of scrofula i our neighborhood, of
long standing, who had used all patent
medicines which were recommended to
him; besides this, he alss had several doe
tors attending him, but everything failed
to effect any good. lie grew wo*rse every
day, and haid not left hus bed for the list
six months. We had seen himi sert rat
times in our little town, though it has been
more than fifteen months since we last saw
him, and we suppose this was the last time
he was able to some to town, as he lives
about eight miles in the country. Hlis
name is Servenka, and we got a neighbor
of his to persuade him to try B. B. B1, and
after using only ONE BOTTrLE lie left his
bed forthe first time in six months.
To the present time lie has used less
than three bottles, and he is walking
around visiting his friends in the neighbor
hood. He has gained strength and flesh
rapidly. All scrofulous sores are healing
finely, and you never saw a happier man
than he is. Nearly eferybody for mIles
around has heard of this wonderful cure,
and all who need a blood remedy call for
the B. B. B.
We had a case of nasal catarrh in our
own family (a little girl of four years old),
who has been using B. B. B. for about two
weeks, and already seems to be about well.
We have only three bottles left, and
want you to ship us six dozen bottle..
We take pleasuro In recommending
B. B. B. as a medicine worthy of the entire
confidence of the public. Its action is
more rapid than any blood remedy we ever
handled. LIEDTKE BtlW'S.
