Work is being done to some extent on tbe east side of the South Florida track, but the probabilities are that the road will be extended to Sanford as that is its natural outlet. Longwood is pushing along well, and with its location should progress well this season. It has fine groves all about the town site and tne land thereabouts is good. It has three railroads, good busi ness houses, a really good newspaper, iivo and wideawake citizens, aud it is lull time for it to come to the front. ST.

Some of the Enterprises Now Doing Pushed to Completion. Sanford, Fla., Jan. 31.—Meeting Col. S. B. Carter, chiet engineer and manager of tbe Blue Springs, Orange City and At lantic railroad, the News representative inquired about the prospects oi this road. From points uiven. It would seem It is going to be finished soon. The iron is laid eight miles east of Orange City, or sixteen miles in ali in operation from the St. John’s river. Over 100 men are at work, and it will be pushed forward with all speed. It Is broad gauge, the iron fifty pounds to tho yard. It will be well made, substantial and solid. The road will be running to New Smyrna, Oe-the-Halifax, by March 1 For the first twelve or fitteen miles from the St. John's it runs through a fine sec lion, then follows a “fiat woods” stretch till Glenooe Is reached, then through ihe celebrated Turnbull hummock to New Smyrna. At this latter terminus an extensive and substantial dock Is being built, it. wiil be some 450 ieet long, the outer end touching the main channel; the wharf proper at the channel end will lie 40x80 feet. At the junction of this road with the Jackson ville, Tatnpaand Key West railway, west ol Orange City, a very neat depot has just been erected by ttiet.wo companies. They have three vessels en route to Ralatka with iron (some 1,060 tons), and will push tho road to completion as last as possible. An important meeting will be held at Orange City Tuesday in regard to estab lishing a Methodist College there. The townspeople give a good school building, ten acres in laud, and a goodly sum in cash. Bishop Foss, of Minnesota, and several other eminent Methodists will be present. WORK ON THE JACKSONVILLE, MANATEE AND GULF RAILROAD, from Lakeland and Plant City to the Man atee river, will probably be commenced soon. President Diane was in New York last week in the interests of the road, aud it is understood he was successful. It will be built from both Plant City and Lakeland, the junction being at a point some eight miles south of the former place, and sixteen oi the latter. Judge Tillman, of Georgta, one of the directors, is very sanguine over the prospects of the road and is working assiduously in its interests. The route lies through a very good section, with little waste lands, anil they expect a large and lucrative busi ness from the Manatee river country. It will be eighty miles long. MR. W. K. I.KUTK, one of Volusia county’s toremost citi zens, informs us that the latest addition to thriving Seville is a bank. This is one of the phenomenal towns of South Florida, with complete waterworks, drainage and sewerage systems, a grand hotel, fine residences, and, above all, lots of pluck and enterprise. The bank will start in at once, witn W. K. l.eute Piesident aud M. R. Robinson as Cashier. The latter gen tleman was the State agent for Indiana for the Travelers’ insurance Company for twelve years, aud also nas had experi ence in the bauking business at Frank lin, Pa. With these gentlemen in charge the institution should prosper. The Se ville Company has expended a large amount in tbe improvement of this place, and say they are hardly half through yet. The Gazette is now known as the Seville Independent, with Mr. Charles A. Choate, a tine jour nalist, at its head. The register of their fine hostelry, the Hotel Seville, shows that a good detachment ol the “missing tourists” have, at one time and another this season, enjoyed its hospitalities. Mr. H. G. Hubbard, the well-known special agent of the Smithsonian Insti tute at Washington, who resides at Cres cent City, is placing the people of the State under great obligations to him for his active researches in their beriaif. He has been experimenting on anew vege table —the cbo-cho—a Mexican product, which, it all reports are to be credited, will prove of great value to Florida. It grows on a running or climbing vine similar to “horse-beans,” and yields an extraordinary crop—two to four bushels to the vine. The specimens we saw w'ere notunlike a “rotund” cucumber, four or five inoheslong and two thick, and in color very much like that vegetable. Those who have tried its edible qualities say it pos sesses valuable qualifications. “Tnat it is better than cucumbers cut up cold, is preferable to egg-plant tried, and more wholesome and palatable than stewed squash.” There, you have all its good qualities in a nutshell—of bad ones, doubtless, it has none. Mr. George E. Sawyer, one of the earli est residents of Sanford, died at his home stead, near Sorrento, early Saturday morning, and was buried here Sunday. Rev. Dr. Moore officiating. Tbe Masonic and Knights of Honor lodges attended in a body. Mr. Sawyer was long a ei'izen of Sanford aud very much interested in Its growth. For tho last year he has been in very "poor health, and a trip to Hot Springs, Ark., proved of but temporary benefit. His death had been daily ex pec eil for the lust fortnight. The Mayoralty question is tho exciting point iu the Gate City just now. At a mass meeting recently ueld Mr. H. L. Lilientbal was declared the nominee. Many ot tbe citizens were dissatisfied and prevailed upon Mr. George H. Fernoid to accept a nomination from them, w hich he did. I’ublic opinion is widely divided, but from present indications Mr. Fernoid loads in tne race. DOTS. The daily shipment of oranges for the past week from this point over the Jaok sonville. Tampa and Key West railway has averaged over 5,500 boxes, or eleven carloads. Steps are bslng taken to have shade trees planted along the streets. Such a Slop is in the right direction and would add to the attractiveness of the town. The Seminole, Winter I’ark’s grand winter home, is doing well. Over 130 guests were enjoying its hospitalities lust Wednesday. Chattanooga's Boom. Chattanooga, Tknn., Feb. 2 Regis tered real estate trausters here in the month of January amounted to $2,618,885. it is stated that there will shortly be established here a horseshoe factory, stove foundry, woolen and cotton mill and edge tool factory. Work will begin in March aud April on the buildings, which are to cost more than $1,000,000. Anarchy In a Colorado Town. Denver, Col., Feb. 2.— i’agosa Spiings, the county seat of Archuleta county, is in a state of anarchy. A mob has driven the county commissioners Irom the town ami burned savural houses, it is partly political aud partly a race quarrel, there being a large Mexican population there.

VIRGINIA’S COUPONS. * Jndffc Bond Holds That Virginia Must Accept Thom as Money. Baltimore, Feb. 2.—Judge Bond, sit ting this afternoon as the United States District Court ot Eastern Virginia, heard an interesting habeas corpus case in volving the constitutionality of the Vir ginia coupon acts of 1885-80. The case was on a petition of Rienard L. Fi'zger ald, a salesman for Austin Fields & Cos., shoe dealers of Philadelphia. Tbe firm on Dec. 1, 1886, deposited with C. Green how, Treasurer of Richmond, SO9 in Vir ginia coupons and $1 75 in money for the purpose of obtaining a license to sell goods by sample in Virginia. Mr. fitzgerald was arrested in New born, Pulaski county, Va., Jan. 25 last, on a charge ot selling goods with out a license, the Treasurer having re fused to accept coupons in payment of the license, as the act states that coupons so offered must be accompanied by the same value in money, the money to be held by the Treasurer until the coupons are ascertained to be genuine. Judge bond discharged Mr. Fitzgerald, and in giving his opinion said that the acts of Virginia of 1885 and 1886 constitute one law, although passed at different times, and that, they are unconstitutional,as they impair the coupon act, which provides that coupons shall be received for all State dues and taxes. Virginia, Judge Bond says, has made coupons as much legal tender as a greenback, and the party offering them could not be called upon to prove their genuineness by the deposit ol collateral Attorney General Ayres, of Richmond, who represents the State of Virginia, asked for an appeal, which was granted. E. U. Sherwood, a salesman for the Spencer Optical Manu facturing Company of New York, who was arrested and released on bail in Richmond on a similar charge, a short time ago, was present and by consent of counsel was made a party to the petition. FMMhlon Notrs. Silver is deservedly popular for use upon evening gowns. Silver-spotted tube is introduced upon white or dulioate colored satin dresses. Fancy Waists and jackets of velvet In dark shades are worn with light skirts. They are particularly useful for trans forming a ball dress into a dinner toilet. Another novelty is a chemise of Jersey ribbed silk—pink, pale blue or cream white—to take the place ot an undervest and short skirt or else to use in the place of the white chemise. A feature of the spring wool goods which will be welcome by every one is the importation ot all materials by the yard, instead of in “robe 9.” There are no dress patterns technically known among mer chants as “robes” among the French goods, and no new robes in market except of cheap German manufactures.
