At Orlnndo yesterday the sun beat

the scarcity of water and tho immense

life unbearable to the niott of them.

Hundreds of people from this city

that the crowds naturally fell into
penitentiary columns to tho ticket

Captain I'osey of Kingfishor, was in

the latest scheme or invention by

Vicycles together in such a manner us
to virtually form n pair of railroad
trucks, with finnges and everything
complete to make them keep tho track
Tho invention would accommodate two
persons and is supposed to make tho
