HEALTH AND CLIMATE.
Alt health seekers, whether from Northern or Southern States, should try the eltniato f
the Tableland. The recent United State Census shows It to be almost the only dtstrlot east
of the Rooky Mountains entirely free from malarial, pulmonary and intestinal diseases.
The Plateau has a double climate, one resulting from latitude and the other from etera
Hen. The air is pure and invigorating. The water is freestone; cool and sparkling. Mut

The mean summer temperature la 13 deg. Fahr aad la winter 87 dot. Fahr. The ntf t
are always cool and refreshing.
A whole of the Cumberland Fletean Is underUM by ooal. The upper measures only
kare as yet been worked. These outcrop on the eastern portion of the Board's estate and
are being successfully worked at several points along the C. 8. R. R. The lower measures
nave been opened by test workings only, and show afire foot rein which extends under the
whole tract at a depth, at Rugby, of about 400 feet.
The district is also underlaid by the oil bearing sands and limestones of the lower ear
braif erous system. And these beds en their western outcrop show unmistakable eyldeaooa
Atftugby Road there is am ereeUeat deposit of patter's clay. Samples have been tested
with wary satisfactory results.
The whole country Is heavily timbered. The principal varieties are Pines white, yellow
and black; Oaks white, black, chestnut, red, spotted and post; Hickory, Maplo, Chestnut
and Dogwood. The Board of Aids' steam saw mill affords opportunities for rapidly convert
hag this timber into marketable lumber. t ,.

field 600 bushels per acre.
FRUIT AND QRAPE CULTURE.
This region Is especially adapted to fruit, and particularly to the winter apple and the
grape. The apple crop here has never been known to fall. The trees are healthy, and the
fruit smooth, plump, Juicy and firm, rarely ever specking or rotting. The grape finds all the
conditions requsite to the highest success. The vines are vigorous, robust, free from mil
dew and rot The bost wine varieties have succeeded admirably, and the wines made from
thorn are excellent In quality and in good demand. These two fruits are destined to become
the great and staple products of the Table-land, and will undoubtedly yield larger returns
than any other orops now cultivated.
Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, currants, ohorriea, plums, and nearly alltM
small fruits thrive and bear prellfloaUy.
STOCK AND SHEEP RAISING.
The excellent natural pasturage, good drainage, abundance of running water and free
lorn from flies make these occupations eminently suitable and remunerative.

The Tolliver Gang Wiped Ouc by a
Sheriff 'a Posse.
The Notorious Desperado, Two Cousins and
Hiram Cooper Uhldled Willi UulletS
While Resisting Officers of the Law.
Lexington, Kt., June 23. This morning
determined men to the number of 1(10, all
armed with Winchester repeating riflos,
came iuto Morehead under chargo of
Sheriff Hogge, to serve a warrant on
Craig Tolliver, charging him with false
swearing in issuing a warrant for the ar
rest of the Logan boys, killed several
weeks ago. As one of the sheriff's posse
was crossing the railroad near the water
tank, about fifty yards east of tho Ruines
Cottage Hotel, and before any attempt had
been made to serve the warrant, Craig
Tolliver, who was near the hotel,
flred at him. The man dodged behind a
pile of lumber, and Tolliver and his two
cousins, Bud and Jay Tolliver, and
Hiram Cooper went into the hotel. Then
the posse camo up in the brush behind the
hotel, and immediately opened lire upon
the building. Tho house was soon sur
rounded, but at something of a distance,
as none of tho sheriff's men cared .to get
within, range of the deadly guns tho Tol
liveis knew so well how to use. After
firing had bceu kept up for probably
three-quarters of an hour the Tolliver
mon attempted to leave the hotel and cross
theraiUnad to a hotel on the opposite sido.
While making this foolhardy attempt tho
notorious '-leader or tho gang which has
been sucjTa; terror to Rowan County fell
to the ground pierced by four balls from
the deadly Winchesters, two going
through his head and two through his
breast. The others got to the opposite
house and fought the posse for some
time, but finding the place less secure
than they had expected they made an at
tempt to recross the railroad to their old
position. In this they were unsuccessful,
for all three of them fell riddled with rifle
balls. After ascertaining that no more re
slstanco would be offered, the poss
picked up the dead men and placed their
on the Hoor of the porch of the CotlagJ
Hotel. Investigation showed that only
one of the sheriff's posso was wounded,
and that was Dr. Brown, who received an
ugly flesh wound in t he thigh. The fighting
was kept up for two hours, and, as some re
marked, sounded like the Fourth of July,
During the firing the utmost consterna
tion prevailod among the women and chil
dren, who ran from their houses and
rushed to the depot hoping thereby to
"f" bullcta.r Tho nassenirer train
irfflcir'itTTJTlencrriToiie u cioca was au-
nrcd for two and a half hours on account
of the shooting, as the fight began just as
iha engineer whistled for Morehead.
The sheriff sent a detail of men
to stop the train, but the engineer,
hearing the rapid firing, brought
the train to a standstill before
reaching the outskirts of the town. After
the light was over the engineer was per
mitted to run his train into the depot,
when it was immediately boarded by a
number of the posse armed with their
Winchesters. Ladies screamed, and a few
fainted, whilo many of the men had busi
ness outside. Tho posso, however, care
fully searched the train for one of the Tol
liver gang they thought had escap
ed. Catesby Tolliver, a boy and
brother to Craig, had a hoio shot
through the leg of his pants. The posse
was composed of the bost men in Rowan
County. They appeared to be hard work
ing farmers, and were all sober, earnest
looking men. Everybody in Morehead
seems glad the Tolli vers are exterminated,
and people will now breathe easier. Prep
arations for tho funeral aro going on. A

THE 'GOLDEN JUBILEE.
Magnificent Celebration of Victoria's Fifty
Years of Reign.
London, June 21. The Queen's jubilee
was celebrated in all tho English depen
dencies and European capitals to-day. In
this city at 5 o'clock this morning every
point of vantage along the streets compos
ing the royal procession was secured.
As high us 100 was paid for seats. It is
estimated that 5,000,000 people viewed the
procession. Punctually at 11:15 a. m. the
Queen, lu an open carriage, emerged from
the palace gates. At sight of her thou
sands of voices were lifted up In cheers,
the applause being accompauiod by the
music of many military bands stationed in
front of the palace. When the palace
gates were thrown open, the immense
throng that had waited outside many
hours to see the royal cortege, extended
far away into tho Mall beyond even seeing
distance of the procession. The Princes
who rode as escort to the carriage went
in the following order: Three abreast
The Grand Duke Sergius, of Rus
sia; Prince Albert Victor, of Wales, and
Prince William, of Prussia; Prince Hcnrv,
of Prussia; Prince George, of Wales, and
the Hereditary Grand Duke of Hesse; the
Hereditary Prince of Saxe - Meiningcn,
Prince Christian Victor, of Schleswig-Hol-stein,
and Prince Louis, of Battenherg;
Prince Christian, of Schleswig-Holstein;
the Crown Prince of Germany and the
Grand Duke of Hesse ; two abreast Prince
Henry, of Battenberg, and the Marquis of
Lome, the Duke of Connaught and the
Prince of Wales. The Duke of Edinburgh
rode alone. This escort, composed as
it was entirely of the sons, sons-in-law
and grandsons of the Queen, all
brilliantly uniformed, and riding mag
nificent horses, elegantly caparisoned,
presented a splendid .spectacle, and In
spired enthusiasm everywhere. Along
the route as the carriage bearing the
Queen came in sight the cheering started
up afresh, and when she had proceeded a
short distance the cheering had become a
mighty roar, which seemed steadily to in
crease in volume and eventually to be
continuous and mighty. The enthusiasm
of the people appeared absolutely bound
less. The Queen was manifestly delight
ed. . Her face wore a constant smile, she
bowed and thanked the people, and when
ever on the way she recognized any per
son she fairly beamed with joy.
LOST ON THE LAKE.
Steam Barge Struck by a Squall, and Eight
Feraons Sent to Watery Graves Captal ,
Bis Two Sons and the Mate the Only Sur
- Cleveland, O., June 21. The steam
barge P. H. Walter, with eight persons
went Us the bottom of Lake Erie in the
night She was owned in Sandusky, and
was bound for Cleveland from Mar
blehead with a load of stone, consigned
to L. P. Smith. When off Black River,
at about 7 o'clock In the evening, the
gale struck her broadside. Captain Isaao
Gillespie saw the approaching storm and
tried to head the boat to tho wind, but was
too late, and the wind was upon him be
fore he was prepared for it. Tho wind
was so strong as to turn the barge over
on her side and she went down in
that position a few seconds after the gale
struck her. The captain and mate, J. H.
Flora, of Locust Point, threw a few planks
and k rope into the water and all jumped
for their lives. There were on
board the captain, mate, engineer, fir;
man, two deck hands named Powley and
Shaefer, a female cook; tho wife of Pow
ley and the captain's family,
comprising his wife and four
children. Tho captain, mate and two boys,
sons of the captain, succeeded in reaching
the planka thrown into the water, but the
rest were drowned. The captain's wife
went down almost within his reach, but
he was entirely unable to assist her in any
way. With planks and rope a raft was
formed, and the four persons clung to it
until 4 o'clock this morning, when they
were sighted by Captain John Edwards,
of the steamer Pearl, who was making his
daily run from Put-in-Bay to Cleveland,
and were brought to this city. The Cap
tain of the Pearl said that when he first
saw the raft the mate was standing up
beckoning for help, the two boys were ly
ing utterly exhausted and their father was
bending over them, watching lest they be
washed into the water by tho sea that was
rolling. When they were taken on board
the Pearl they were rubbed, given dry
clothing and stimulants, and when they
reached Cleveland they were quite com
fortable. All left the city at eight o'clock,
on tho steamer Pearl, and returned to Put-In-Bay.

TOOK A POUND OF POISON.
The Old Elephant BIJou Put Out Of Ills
Boston, June 20. Bijou, a famous ele
phant that has been before the American
public for sixty years, was killed bypolron
last Saturday night at the World's Muse
um, whereit has been suffering from old
age and disease. Poison had been prepared
in capsules, which were concealed in choc
olate caramels. Dr. Al. White offered ono
to the great beast as it lay upon its side.
Bijou took it with great deliberation,
swallowed it and looked up for more. All
that had been prepared were given,
and then the result was awaited. The
poison used was the same Dr. Watts used
in dispatching homeless dogs. It did its
work thoroughly. Just forty-five minutes
after the first bit of candy had been placed
in its mouth Bijou was dead. For a few
minutes there had been convulsive work
ings of the legs and body, the great head
was partially lifted from the ground and
then fell back ; t e eyes bocame fixed, and
without another tremor Bijou passed
away. While seven grains of the poison
would kill a man a pound was used to
bring about a similar result with Bijou.
The dead elephant weighed 4,500 pounds,
and was strong in proportion. It was a
male elephant of the African species and
some seventy-five years old. -
