A I.nrty In Ncarrh of her Father.
Atlanta, Oct. 20. About a month
ago the death of Mr. MarkBrotherton,
at Jacksonville, ot yellow fever, was
published. Mrs, Brotherton is now in
Atlanta. She states that her brothar-
in-law, Capt. V, H. Brotherton, was
very kind to ner, out ner one wisn
now is to find her father.
Mrs. Brotherton is an only daugh
ter of Mr. P. W. H. McMillan. While
she was attending school at Thorpe
Springs, Texas, she met Mr. Mark
Brotherton and became engaged to
him. Her father objected to the
match, and she ran away and married
the man of her choice, At long inter
vals her father wrote to her, always
statiag that it would be useless for her
to answer as he would be at some
other place before the letter could
The last time she heard from him
was ten years ago, and then he was in
Mexico. Mrs. Brotherton has five
children, all girls. She will return to
Jacksonville to secure what things she
left behind, and then begin in earnest
the search of her father, who loved
her dear'y in years gone by, and who,
she believes, will gladly welcome her
ana tne i.ttie ones.

Little Rock, Ark., Oct, 19. Since
the recent sale of the Cotton Belt Rail
road, the tact has become more ap
parent each day to the people of Lit
tle Rock that they must do something
or go backwark, as Gould controls all
the roads entering the city. This led
Monday to a rousing meeting of the
board of trade, at which a proposition
was made to John O'day to give him
$50,000 and other valuable assistance
if he corld extend the St. Louis and
San Francisco road to Little Rock.
A committee was appointed to con
fer with the officers of the Memphis,
Little Rock and Indian Territory
Railroad to see what assistance they
would need from this city in building
their line, the committee to pledge
and raise it.
T. H. Martin, superintendent of
construction of the Louisiana, Arkan
sas and North Central Railroad, which
is surveyed to pass through here, said
he would soon be ready to begin con
structed and wanted to accept the
proposition made the San Francisco

Texarkana, Oct. 20. The present
eyesore of Texarkana is the Quaran
tine Station established on the Texas
side, two miles west of town. The
stated object of this quarantine busi
ness is to protect Texas against yel
low fever. The State employs and
pays the necessary help, and although
the Board of Health here and public
opinion alike condemn the quarantine
as no longer necessary, it is neverthe
less continued, and a large number of
persons from various sections of the
country are detained. No one here
any longer has the leait fear of fever,
and even if they did, there is no pro
tection afforded by the present man
agement, the guards at the station
coming into town and going about at
will. It was not generally known that
so many people were detained until
