Charles ll,' Straus* Delivers i tho (.'losing hflciiire of the Course. “The Final Crusades of St. Louis to Egypt and Tunis” was the subject of Key. Charles H. Strong’s lecture at St. John's Parish Hall last night. It was the last lecture of the course on tho Romance ot the Crusades. Tte hall was well tilled. After reviewing briefly tbe events ot the preceding lectures of tne i course the reverend gentleman addressed ! himself to his subject. in 1-13, he said, the world beheld an event such as had never before occurred. Fifty thousand children in France and Germany, boys and girls, from 10 to 20 years of age, gathered together under the leadership of two of their number, and marched through tbe principal cities singing “Lord Jesus, restore to us your holy cross,” taelr avowid purpose being the deliverance of the sepulchre. Many bad women and two renegade monks took part in this crusade for the purpose ot soiling these poor children to the Moors ol Afrioa. A number survived to undergo tnis degradation. “Great preparations were made for the sixth crusade. Andrew, of Hungary, took the cross, but returned soon alter his arrival in Jerusalem leaving tne Duke ot Austria with his German forces. Being largely reinforced it was deter mined to attack Damietta, the key to Egypt, which surrendered after a furious resistance. The invasion of Egypt tilled the Moslems with consternation. An otter was made to tbe Christiauato giveail Palestine and Jerusalem for the evacua tion ot Egypt by tho crusaders. The offer was relused. and through the bad gener alship of their leader the Christians were driven out of the country. “the excommunicated German Em peror, Frederick, next, attempted the rescue of Jerusalem. Witn a small force he took tbe field, occupied Joppa and ap proached ttie Holy City. At this juoeture a treaty was made by the Sultan of Cairo j with Frederick which gave tree access to Jerusalem to pilgrims and a peace of teu years. Upon Frederick’s return Richard, Earl of Cornwall, with many knights, landed io Palestine. So great was tbe terror inspired by this Prince that the Sultan gave him, without battle, an ab solute cession of Jerusalem and released to him all the captives then in Moslem hands. “Four years after this treaty tne Bashi- Bazouks spread over Europe and Asia, robbing all who opposed their progress. Among those who were driven from their territories were the Causman, who de termined to avenge upon others their own evils. In 1246 witn 20,000 cavalry they entered Palestine. Jerusalem hav ing been abandoned its remaining inhab itants were slaughtered. Tho knights, aided by tue Moslems, gave them battle at Gaza, where the Christians were de feated, less than sixty escaping. These outrages determined Louis of France to attempt a seventh crusade. Great prepa rations wore made in ali Europe. “in 1454 Louis, at tbe head of the army, arrived at Damietta, winch lei 1 into their hands wjtbout resistance. Leaving his Queen in that city, Louis marched for Cairo. Ho was detained at the Thama sian canal, but at last crossed over. A terrible battle was also fought, and owing to his bolduess In attempting the rescue of an army of knights who had been cut off by the Turks, Louis allowed the Mame lukes to get between him and Damietta. The crusadors suffered terribly, and on attemptisg to retreat under cover of the night were captured after a large number ot knights had fallen. He ransomed himself by tho release of Damietta, and. obtained the freedom of tne re mains ot his army by the payment of 400,000 gold livres. Not satisfied with his deeds Louts attempted to capture Tunis in the eighth crusade. This cru sade was productive of even less good and more suffering than the preceding one to Egypt, Among the l'amitie and pestilence of the camp Louis at length tell sick and died before Tunis. At his death he was canonized. “Edward Longshanks, afterward Ed ward I. of Englaud, was tne last to at tempt the deliverance of the sepulchre. This knight took Acre, captured Nazareth and defeated a large body of Moslems. After a residence of fourteen months in the Holy Land he concluded a peace of ten years. Soon afterward Acre was be sieged aud taken by tho Moslems. This was the last organized effort to preserve Jerusalem to European control.” The lecture was illustrated with nearly 100 views in the oxy-bydrogen light, and waa one of the most interesting of the course. At its conclusion tbe reverend lecturer thanked his audience for the at tention it had given him and lor tbe in terest it had taken in the lectures. FLEEING FROM FLAMES. Sleepers Barely Escape in Tlieir Niglit Clot lies. Fire broke out at 2o’clock this morning in a brick building on the east side of Tattnall street, between Liborty and Har ris. Tbe building was being remodeled Into three brick houses and wa9 nearly completed.

In the basement were several col ored women, who fled from the burning building in their nigut clothes. Very : little furniture was saved. The flames had good headway before an alarm was turned in. Which, it was said, was at least ten minutes after the fire was dis covered.

Cyril Searle, a well-known actor and | theatrical manager, died a few minutes after 12 o’clock yesterday at the Savan nah Hospital. Two or three years ago he was attacked by consumption, and for the past six months his friends have had little hope of his recovery, la October of last, year he came to Savannah with the Lillian Lewis Company, of which he was the business manager. Tnc company broke in Savannah, and Mr. Searle was persuaded to stay here. He was then failing rapidly, but it was thought that his life might he prolonged in this oil mate, evon thouga a cure could not be effected. • For a time he appeared to improve, but before the holidays he left for a distant part of the State. Shortly alterward he catne back to Savannah much worse than when he left. For six weeks ne has been confined to tbo hospital. Although Me knew that his end was fust approaching, he always showed a cbeerlul disposition, and be met death calmly and learlessly, though without Buy bravado. A few hours before bis dissolution be faintly remarked, but with a spiile, to a friend at his bedside: ‘‘The last act of my life’s drama is almost played.” None knew better than he that tbe end was near, and that tne curtain would soon drop forever on his mortal existence. At!) o’clock yesterday morn ing he became unconscious, aud re mained so, passing away very gently. His real name was Cyril Seale, Searle being his stage name, and he came of a family of much prominence in Alabama. He was born in Seale in that State absut forty years ago. When he was a boy he was sent to England to be educated, and remained there until he was nearly of age, receiving a military education. He became a man of tine attainments, but was of a roving disposition, and in dis life, though a comparatively snort one, he saw much of the world. He traveled all over the European coutinent, went to Australia and saw active duty in Her Majesty’s service. He had an extensive acquaintance among the prominent people of England, and was an intimate personal friend of Charles Reade, the great novelist. Entering the dramatic profession, he quickly rose to a leading position. His greatest character was probably "Cottpeau” in “Drink,” the manuscript of which was willed to him by Beade, who bad adapted it from the French. He mar ried in England, and soon after wards came to this country and accepted a position on the New York Herald. Leaving journalism he again began aotlng, and traveled all over the United States playing leading parts in standard plays. When Mary Anderson made her first successful tour through the South, which was the com mencement of her succession of suc cesses, Mr. Searle was her leading sup port, playing Ingomar and Borneo and such roles in her repertoire. Obtaining a divorce from his first wife be married Bose Eytlnge, tneu in the zenith of her enreer. For several seasons he managed her in starring tours, gener ally playing leading man. He was a bf tter actor than business manager, and although he made a great deal of money it was lost in unsuccessful ventures. He was a member of the Masonic fra ternity, of the Benevolent Order of Elks, of the Typographical Union and ot the Actors’ Fund. The Elks, the Actors’ Fund and the Ford Dramatic Association, of this city, have been caring for him since he has been in Savannah. He will be buried this alternoon by the Masons in Laurel Grove Cemetery. The funeral services will be held at St. John’s Church at 3 p. m. The President ot the Savannah Typographical Union requests that as many members of the organization as can will attend tbe funeral. WHAT MIND READING IS. Prof. .1. Ranilall Brown to Give an Exhibition in Savannah. A religious illustrated lecture on mind reading aud spiritualistic phenomena is announced by Prof. J. Randal! Brown for Sunday night. It will be held at the Theatre, where he gave a similar exhibi tion ten years ago. The Professor called at the editorial rooms of the Morning News yesterdav and gave an interesting sketch of tbe discovery and development of mind reading. He says that he is the original discoverer of the wonderful tac ulty himself. “There • a great misunderstanding,” he remarked, “as to what mind reading is. Many have an idea that it is akin to dramatic readings, or something of that kind. Of courso, as everybody ought to know. It is the faculty of telling what others are thinking about. It is shown by finding articles which have been hid den, telling the name someone is think ing of, reading the date on a coin witnout seeing it. and doing similar thifigs.” Prof. Brown set easily exclteable At lanta all astir with his Derformances,the first of which lie gave ar, the theatre on Sunday night about two weeks ago. He says that there is nothing in his perform ances to which any clergyman can ob ject. as they are simply scientific investi gations. He was offered all sorts of in ducements to give a private seance to the News staff. If he read the minds of its members ho found that he had dropped upon a net of skeptics. H>* saul that be had been traveling and did not feol just in condition to get thoroughly en rapport with a subject. A News reporter, who had been pre viously authorized by a gentleman to make the proposition, stated that he would give the Professor a handsome gold watch if he would tell the number on the Inside of the case. Tho Professor agreed to tue test, and said that he will forfeit $lOO if he fails at a public exhibi tion. F. L. George A**igu< rl. Mr. F. L. George, grocer at Whitaker and State* street*, made an assignment yesterday to Mr. I>. It. Kennedy. Mr. George's nominal awets ave about $6,500 and Ins liabilities are about $5,500. His creditors are principally in Savannah. The failure is understood to liaro been the result ol credit. “Oil! But I Salivated Him!” was the actual exclamation of an honest physician, spoken of one of his patients to whom he had given culomol for the cure of biliousness aid a diseased liver. Ami bo had salitute.d him for certain. Iroru which he never recovered.

GEN. ALEXANDER DEN IK-** THAT THE CKNIRAL IS SCOOPED. H* Ray* that, the Road is Owned by the Bnine Parti** that Elected Him Pr**d dent—The Stock Market Not Affected by the Rumored Deal—What Is Said About tho Baltimore sail Ohio Purchase. Gen. E. P. Alexander was asked yes terday about the reported scoop of all the Southern railway systems by the Rich mond and West Point Terminal people. The Genera! stated that he had heard it said that the Baltimore and Ohio had given the Terminal people tne refusal of a majority of their stock. He thought per haps that the option was still open, a otr oumstance which may explain President Garrett’s silence. As to the Georgia Central being in cluded in tne scoop, tbe President de clared that the Richmond aDd West Point Terminal does not own it, and that it is held by the same parties who elected him. At the intimation that possibly tbe rail roads are acting upon his suggestion in his treatise on 'Railway Reform, and are combining for protection before the inter state commerce bill goes into effect, Gen. Alexander smiled and remarked that perhaps some of them are. The reported deal has had no visible effect upon Central stock. Tne market is quiet and has been for several days. The stock was quoted yesterday at bid and 126 asked. There were no transac tions. There was a good deal of talk yesterday in regard to the deal and the effect it will have upon Savannah if tbe Central is included along with the other roads in the great scood. Tbere have been so many reports circulated that nobody claims to have much of an idea as to what the inside ot the deal is. The following is what the New York Tribune obtained from Gen. Samuel F. Thomas respecting the purchase of the Baltimore and Ohio by tne Sully, Brice aud Thomas syndicate: “1 am not in a position to talk about this transac tion, for it has not yet beeu consummated. It is idle to expect me to say anything definite, for my relations with my asso ciates forbid my speaking with the free dom that I would exeroise were the mat ter settled. But I think I am at liberty to say that important negotiations are (lending which involve a change in the position of the Baltimore aud Ohio rail road stock, whioh heretofore has been held as a family interest, and tbe new ownership which is proposed would bring luto the property important New York as well as other capitalists. And the negotiations not only look to such a distribution of con trol, but will involve tbe Reading, Jersey central and Pennsylvania railroads the telegraph interests in relations which will tend to assure harmony and co operation where before tbere were dis putes and disagreement. The project i a large one, and if carried oul will result in arrangements which 1 believe will be conducive to the benefit of general securi ties. I see no reason why,when an under standing has beeu reached, there should not be given to it the widest publicity, for it is in line with a policy that will be ad vantageous to the public as well as to the interests specially affected. The negotia tions nave made favorable progress and have reached a stage where I think there is reason to expect that the wildest hopes of those who are aiming at reconciliation will be realized.” “Then you are willing to say that no snags or obstructions have been encoun tered which look insurmountable?” “None whatever,” replied Gen. Thomas. , “1 believe it is only a question of a short time when by some agreement and in some way a harmonizing of these impor tant interests will be secured. The idea is not anew one; it was taken up by well known capitalists more than a year ago and has been in mind more or less ever since. Tbe tendenoy in railroad prop erties for some time has been toward the substitution of an imnersonal for a per sonal management as most contributive to tbe best interests of the public and the owners of railroad properties. This principle was first recognized m the Van derbilt system, and the Baltimore and Ohio is ready the last company which has kept its ownership inclose bands.” Local Personal.

Charleston is vary much exercised over the way Savannah calculates its cotton receipts aDcl is offering sugges tions to the National Cotton Exchange in regard to how the counting should be done. A few days ago the News and Courier printed a statement that Savannah counted 27,000 bales, or thereabouts, that did not belong to this port. Supt. Bryan stated in reply that Savannah is acting under a rule of the National Exchange. The Stiperinteudant of the New Orleans Exchange has written to Supt. Tavel of the Charles ton Exchange confirming the count made here, and says: “If the cotton has been shipped to or via Savannah by the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia railroad or other conveyance, and there transferred to the Charleston and Savan nah railway, Savannah, under the system of counting pursued at all out ports, has rightly counted it, and it should be counted by you as gross and not not. If, however, the cottou has not touched Sa vannah, they are in error and your oount is correct. The same trouble would arise with us were we to oount as net all cotton consigned to our merchants form interior points via the Louisville and Nashville railroad, such ootton nearly all passing through Mobile in sealed cars, yet is counted by Mobile as net receipts and included by us only as gross.” This apparently has not satisfied Charleston, and Supt. Tavel has written to the New Orleans Exchange as follows: Charleston, 8. C., March 8, 1887. R. 11. Lei , Aeeiet.mt Secratary Cotton Ex change, Now Or! tarn, La. : Dear Sir—Yours of March 5 came duly to hand and contents noted. We regret that wo cannot see our way to oounting our receipts as you suggest. Wo count here the receipts of our pert. Cotton shipped to Charleston from Atlanta via Augusta or via Jcsup and Savannah, we equally count as shipped to this port. Cotton that oomes here from Flor ida on the New York, Charleston and Florida steamers, and that lies in our docks for a day or two, we do not count in either our gross or net. Cotton that pusses Charleston Junction, whether on its way to Savannah or Wilming ton or Norfolk, if such there be, we do not and would not count. Wo suggest that it would be just as easy for Savannah, instead of filling its account with innumerable cross entries, and thus swelling, incorrectly, its receipts, to count simply its own cotton and leave us to count simply ours. Thus errors may more readily be avoided. In counting receipts at interior towns, docs Vicksburg add and deduct every boat-load of Memphis cotton that passes down the river? Does Augusta receive and export every carload of Athena, or Atlanta or Macon cotton that passes through her city? Such a system would entail endless confusion and result in swelling incalculably the receipts of any town that might be a way-station on a line of railway. Would it not be better, then, for Mobile and Savannah to stop counting cotton that does not belong to them, rather than that New Orleans and Charleston should deduct what does belong to them? As re gards this cotton, Savannah is not an out ward port, but simply a way-station on a through railway line. I remain yours truly, R. A. Tavel, Superintended,. Wretched, Indeed, are those whom a confirmed tendency tobil iousues, suoject to the various and change ful symptoms indicative ot liver complaint. Nausea, sick headache, constipation, furred tongue, an unpleasant breath, a dull or sharp pain in the neighborhood ot the affected or gan, impurity of the blood and ioss of appe tite. signalize it asone of the most distressing, as it is one of the most common, of maladies. There is, however, a benign specific for the disease and all its unpleasant manifestations. It is the concurrent testimony of the public and the medical profession, that Hostetter’s Stomach ftitters is a medicine which achieves results speedily felt, thorough and benign, besides rectifying liver disordor.it invigorates the feeble, conquers kidney and bladder com plaints, and hastens the convalescence of those recovering from enfeebling diseases.

Why, of course, you I’ll toll; The change was caused by my dining so well. Why, you surprise me. after such complain ing as in the past; Is it possible you have made such a good change at last? Yes, I must answer, my dear boy, for it’s true. Such meals as I get I’m sure would improve you. And pray where is it such good meals you get? It must be a New Restaurant I have notfound as yet? It’s at Charles F. Graham s, 149 Congress street. That you will find good meals, such as you like to eat. At Graham’s— at Graham’s—l’ll put that name dowD.
