under the direction of Mrs. Crane, wife of
the Secretary, who has made this branch of
the work her especial care and has suc
ceeded in gathering together quite a num
ber of bright little fellows and interesting
them deeply in tbe work. Next Saturday's
meeting will be a public one, at which the
very interesting programme referred to will
be carried out.
Two confidence dudes were in the act
of playing a trick upon an old man from
over the river Monday night, just as Officers
Taylor and Tyler came upon them and
nipped their game in the bud and them
selves into the calaboose. They were
dressed to kilt, but their stock in trade
consisted solely of four fancy cards, two of
which bore secret marks that distinguish
ed them from the others. They told the
old man to come with them up to the
stone depot and tbey' would show him a
big, strange snimal that had been brought
here from Johnson county. The old fellow
was walking quietly along with them when
the officers interfered. The dudes were
each fined $100 and costs by Magistrate

It is said to be the custom with a great
many railroad companies to secure from
their employes an agreement to tbe effect
that they will not hold the company re
sponsible for injuries resulting frsm negli
gence, carelessness or misconduct of them
selves or any other person in the employ of
the company. The Supreme court of
Georgia has just decided that an employ
may in this way waive his right to sue for
damages in case injuries caused by the
negligence of himself, but a waiver of the
right to sue where the injury arises from
the negligence of other employes of the
road is contrary to public policy snd there
fore illegal and void.
Dr. Dio Lewis, in his monthly maga
zine for October, gave a rule for the cure
of stammering. He savs he hai cured
three-fourths of all the cases he has treated.
Tbe stammerer is made to mark the time in
his speech, just as it is ordinarily done in
singing. At first he is to beat on every
syllable. He should begin by reading
psalms, striking his finger on the knee at
every word. "Time can be marked," says
the doctor, "by striking the finger on the
knee, by hitting the thumb against the
forefinger, or by moving the large toe in the
boot." He believes the worst case of stut
tering can be cured if the victim will read
an hour every day, with thorough practice
of this remedy, and observing the same in
Persons in need of clothing of any
kind should take advantage of the fine op
portunity now offered by Messrs. Golditine
& Rosenwater, to buy what thev need at
obbers' prices. There is no firm in the city
that may be more implicitly trusted by the
public in all matters pertaining to busi
ness than Messrs. Goldstine & Rosenwater;
in this the general public will bear us out.
Tbe firm has still one of the largest, finest
sod most varied stock of clothing and
gents' furnishing goods in the city, al
though they have been selling off for sev
eral weeks. They have resolved to sell out
this entire stock quickly, and in order to do
so have put the retail price of everything
down to the wholesale cost. This is sn
extraordinary offer. It not a business
dodge, but an offer made in good faith,
which will be strictly adhered to until the
stock is entirely disposed of. People need
ing clothing, should go st once so as to have
the advat tage of s choice from a full line.
Six noble specimens of youthful mas
culinity in human form, whose courage is in
their bellies and can only be excited by
a copious baptism of "bug juice," and then
only to perpetrate some cowardly act
agiinst inoffensive people, gave an exhibi
tion of their manliness and prowess on
Commercial avenue, near Seventh street,
Monday night. There they came upon
three men who were guilty of tbe monstrous
crima of quietly walking up the street, and
almost wit hout a warning they attacked
tbe three and beat them up about the heads
and faces in a most brutal manner just for
fun. One ot the three unfortunates was
knocked senseless and bad to be carried into
Mr. Botto's saloon, where, after an hour's
care by the officers, he was revived; the
other two men managed to find refuge else
where to nurse their bleeding, disfigured
faces. Yesterday Officer McTigue sum
moned the half dozen brave young bucks
before Magistrate Comings, and they were
each fined $10 and costs, $16.50 in all. The
court took occasion to adminiater a severe
repromand and promised, that if any of the
same mob ever came before him again for a
similar offense, the full extent of law would
be given, which is $50 and costs. Tbe affiir
was about as great an outrage as has been
perpetrated here for a long time, and as the
offenders were all young fellows who live
here and have figured in tbe police courts
before, the public g od demands that future
punishment shall be prompt and severe. In
this instance a charge of assiult with dead
ly weapons, with intent to do bodily injury
or to am, Drougnt under the State law,
would have been justifiable, and then tbe
perpetrators of the outrage could have been
held over for trial by the Circuit court.
But there was some doubt as to who of the
gang used the weapons, which, to judge
from the wounds of the victims, must have
been metal "knucks." We withhold names
this time on account of the fathers, mothers
and sisters of some of the young criminals,
not, we assure them, because of any per
sonal regard for the criminals themselves.
But this consideration may not again have
an influence so potent.
