The Humorist Visits Bonavoiiture and What He says About It. Maj. Charles H. Smith, the genial hu morist and philosopher, who is known all over Ae country as ‘-Bill Arp,” spent yes terday in Savannah, lie was returning to his home In Cartersville from the g£>outhern Chautauqua at Lake Weir. Fia In the afternoon Maj. Smith was cap tured by friends and driven over the city. He was delighted with what he saw, and declared Savannah to be the most beau tiful city in the South. The parks and fcquares were especially pleasing to him. “What a city lor children,” he said. “How 1 wish mine were here to enjoy the beauties that are spread out like an en trancing panorama.” When he was asked if be had ever pre viously visited Savannah he replied: “Yes, once before. It was tilty-four years ago. I came here with my father on my way to Boston. All that 1 can re member of the city is a beautitul double row of China trees, but where it was 1 can’t say. 1 suppose none of the trees are now standing. I have reason,” he continued, “to bo much interested in Savannah. Seventy years ago my father taught school here. My mother, who was a Charlestonian, was Dne of bis pupils. They fell in love with each other, and I am one of the r suits. My father was a native of Massachusetts. I was rather a bad bay, and had a habit, when 1 was in a passion, ot butting my bead against anything that was conven ient and ot biting m>self. When told that she ought to reprove rue, my mother would say: ‘O, let the child alone, he can’t help It; it’s only Massachusetts and South Carolina fighting each other.’” Maj. Mmth wasdriven to Bonaventure. He was charmed with its beauty, and said ibat it was worth dying to be buried in such a place. On the way back to the city he was much interested in the mar ket wardens. “You are a farmer, are you not?” he Was asked. “Well,” he replied, “I own a farm. You Know, the poets say there is husbandry in heaven. 1 didn't believe it. Let a man gather fodder oil a hot, windless day and be stung by a pack-saidle, and he won’t believe it, either. No, there’s no hus bandry in heaven.” A number ot prominent gentlemen will endeavor to iuduce Maj. Smith to come to Savannah soon, and lecture. He has re cently made great reputation as a lec turer, and no doubt he would have a large and appreciative audience in Sa v*mah. YESTERDAY MORNING’S FIRE.

Two Street < :ir Drivers Make a Big Haul—How They Worked. Ili ory Smith and Isaac Johnaon (col ored) were before United States Commis sioner E. u. Wade yesterday charged with stealing letters and breaking them open. Smith la. a car driver tor the City and Suburban Mroet Hallway Company. Jonnson was a driver also, until about a week ago, when be was discharged. A few days ago a package of letters for Isle of Hope wan stolen from tho railway depot on Anderson street. Carriers were in the habit of taking the mail for resi dents of I sic of 11 ope out to the depot where tney would leave it iti charge of a clerk who put it in n pouch and turned it over to tho conductor on the outside line, who carried it to isle of Hope. Ou tho uay in question the Isle of Hope mail was lelf at the depot as usual, though there appears to have been no clerk there at the tune. Before he re turned someone went in aud tong the package oft of his desk. Ou Wednesday some fragments oi letters were found m the depot water closet. A search was made, and seven letters were found. Henry Smith was first sus pected. because it was noticed that he was spending tnonev rather lav ishly for a car driver tie suddenly blossomed out in new olothesand smoked ac. cigars. From aa humble car driver he became all at once transformed into a citizen of wealth who spent money reok lessly. On Thursday uigbt be went to see Davenport in “Much Ado About Nothing,” and occupied a front seat in the second Mer. Johnson was along with him. Both wore watched, and after the performance were taken to the colics barracks lor safe keeping. At the hearing yesterday the letters Were produced, and Smith’s, conscience smote him to such an extent that he de clared that Johnson stole the bundle, tore the letters open and gave him f.'iO. Smith insisted that he was entirely innocent so tar as the tneft and rifling the letters were concerned. The store clothes were ob. tained ant $7 which he had not spent. Among the letters recovered was one containing a check for over S6OO, payable to the bearer, it bad been sent hero from New York by a lady for collection. Very little evidence was taken, as it was thought that others were implicated in the robbery, in order to make other ar rests the case was continued until this morning at 10 o’clock, by which time j some more letters may be found. THE ORPHANS’ HOME Work Begun on the New Building at Jefferson and Liberty Streets. The contractors have begun work on the new building for the Episcopal Orphans’Home at Liberty and Jefferson streets and will push it to completion as rapidly as possible. The orphans are now domiciled at Isio of hope, where they will remain until the new home is completed, which will be about Oct. 1 if nothing unforeseen occurs. This institu tion is doing a great, deal of good lu a quiet way,and is well worthy the generous support oi the charitable of all religious creeds. Although i* is under the control of the Protestant Episcopal Church of Chatham county it makes no discrimina tion on account ol different religious training. If the applicants are worthy and need the care ol kiud friends they are taken and provided for until old enough to eflrn their own living. The old building, formerly occupied as an orphanage, was found to be entirely unsuited to the needs of the institution, but the new building, now m course of erection, will be commodious and com fortable, with capacity for fifty children, which is double tbe size of the old home, aud will greatly increase tbe usefulness of the society. The charity is a noble one, and is very far-reaching in the good it accomplishes. Without suoh “Homes” in large cities there would be a vast amount of suffering among the poor chil dren, who are lett without triends and often without relatives, with no means ot living, or are too young to care Tor them selves. The board of managers has undertaken to make provision tor a much larger num ber of children and to increase its useful ness, and they hope that all who take an interest in suen good works will gener ously aid them in accomplishing so worthy a purpose. The Building Com mittee, consisting of Capt. J. R. D. Tatt nall, Messrs. J. K. Clarke, J. D. Weed, E. F. Neufville andL. M. Warfield, assisted and directed by Air. J. J. Nevitt, archi tect, are pushing the work with energy and hope soon to be able to show the friends of the institution a building that will inspire them with feelings both oi pride and pleasure.

Men anil I Plugs Come and Go, but old Brown Windsor is not removed from the toilet, of the taa'iionahlo world, 'f be purest and most Irugrunt is that of J. A L. ATKINSON. ja ..Arv,ijL MORNING NEW s: SATURDAY. MARCH 12, 1887. TUB MIND It . VUK.K i kldv'C Prof. J. ITand.Ul Drawn P.elutes Some of His I'xperieucrs. Prof. J. Randall Brown was asked yes terday if his fifteen years of ex at mind reading bave not en abled him to give some satisfactory ex planation of what it is. He replied that it seems to bint to be more on tbe nature |of a sixth sense than anything I else. He believes that everyone possesses ! the jiower in some degree. In himself it 1 is. perhaps, abnormally developed. He bolds tnat It is in some way connected nitti animal magnetism or electricity, saul ne: "This was shown in a test pre j pared l>y I)r. Samuel Uross, of Pblladel ; pftia, who is a national authority on sur gery. 1 heid tbe subject’s hand in mine wnlle near by was an instrument known as a galvanometer, used for measuring tne minute forces of electricity. Kverv time a thought passed through tbe sub ject’s mind tbe needle of the instrument, was deflected." The Professor says that he can at will cease thinking and leave bis mind in what he calls a passive or receptive state. It is then that be is in condition to read wha? is in another’s mind. There are many amusing incidents connected with his exaibitions he says. A peculiar case was one that has just recently occurred. | A correspondent writes that he is paying attentions to a young lady whom he j loves. He is extremely bashful though, Jhe says, and is afraid to pelt the mo mentous question. Taking Mr. Brown into his confidence, the swain wants to know what the Protessor will take for his secret. The young man says that there will be no trouoio about getting hold o( his love’s hand. He thinks that it he could then read her mind he would know bow to act. If bis atfsotiou is re ciprocated he would instantly propose, i but if he should find her mind on some one else ho would try to steer his rival j off. Tbe Professor says that the faculty would work just as well in a parlor with the gas turned down low and with only two oanies, as on a public stage. “1 bave concluded, however, not to sell out the secret just yet, much as I would like to accommodate tne young folks—at least not until alter the lecture on Sunday night,” he added. "SHK PIZKX’D CM.” A Vamacraw Negress Charged with Voudooism. Yamacraw was excited yesterday over what was believed by many to be a genu ine voudooing case. Thursday afternoon Lucy Howard and Sarah Haywood (color ed) quarreled on Zubly street. Before it developed into a tight another woman named Sarah Marshall separated them and took Lucy Howard off. The Marshall woman then walked down the street, and while standing on the corner Sarah Hay wood walked up and laid her hand on the peacemaker’s shoulder. Instantly Sarah Marshall fell to the ground as though stricken by witchery. She was car ried home and died about 10 o’clock at night, not having spoken a word from the time she swooned. Several saw her drop and the report instantly started ♦ hat Sarah Haywood had voudooed the Marshall woman. ‘•She pizen’d urn” was generally re marked of Sarah Haywood. Many ac cused her of being a voudoo, or, as it was more often called, a "houdoo” doctress. Her accusers declared that she had a leather in her hand and that she had par alyzed Sarah Marshall because the latter bad interfered in the quarrel. Yesterday morning Coroner Dixon was notified and held an inquest. The facts about the quarrel and the swoon were tes tified to by several witnesses. Dr.Cbisbolm stated that in his omnion death resulted troin paralysis, and the jury so decided, but numbers of the colored folks still hold on to the voudoo theory. MONEY FOR THE COURTS. Effect of the Failure of the Defi ciency Bill. The little ripple caused in the United States Court circles by the failure of the general deficiency has quieted down. Witnesses and jurors are the parties who would first reel the result of tne failure of the bill,because tboMarsbal isleft without funds. Marshal Lamar states, however, that he has funds enough in sight tocarry the court over the April term. After teat there will be very lew bills until court meets again lu the fall. When what money there Is on hand gives out, jurors and witnesses can (by an arrangement already made with one of tne banka) have their scrip shaved at a small discount. There will be no serious embarrassment therefore. At. tbe close ot the fiscal year, which occurs June 30, tbere is always In toe Department ol Justice a deficiency of funds to meet the charges of the court, and to provide funds to meet this defi ciency a clause was inserted iu the gen eral deficiency bill appropriating money lor tms purpose. The responsibility tor the failure of the bill lies with the Senate, that body having failed to concur in the action of the Mouse in passing tbe bill. AT THE COURIS, Divorce Proceedings Occupy Most of the Time. Judge Adams granted sl2 a month temporary alimony to Mary E. T. Lewis yesterday pending divorce proceedings brought by her husband, Jacob .N. Lewis. In the case of the rule for contempt against James B. Patterson for refusing to pay si6 alimony to Viola J, Patterson tor February, the defendant was given until next Wednesday to com. ply with tbe order. In tbe case of tne Mechanics’ Furniture Company and others, complainants, and Samuel lkririann.dete daot, rule tor con tempt, argument was beard and deoisiou was reserved. An order was granted by tbo court authorizing the receiver of Samuel Her mann to bold the sum of SI,OOO, proceeds from tbe sale of Hermann’s stook, subject to the further order of tbe court. Her mann having filed with the Ordinary a petition for a homestead exemption. Court adjourned until next Wednesday at 10 a. in. TWELVE MONTHS AT AUBANY.

Some Old-Time Reminiscences of Southern Fiery Encounters. From Waehingt >n tetter in New Yo ' k Herald. They were talking about dueling down at the Metropolitan the other night. The Metropolitan is the Washington rendez vous for Southern men, and no subject is dearer to the Southern heart than remi niscences of dueling in ante-bellum days. “1 have no doubt you had game men in Georgia and in Kentucky and Texas,” said one Of the speakers, bowing politely to the representatives of these States, who, with himself formed the group, hut for real downright pluck and daring the Virginian takes the lead. You all remember old Col. Jack McCarthy, of course. He was one of those men of whom you could salely say he would tackle a circular saw with out the slightest fear of the consequences. Un one occasion he had a quarrel with his brother-in-law, Mr. Mason. Tne Masons were just as plucsy as the McCarthys, and a quarrel between such men meant business. Mason sent McCarthy a chal lenge. Mac replied that he didn’t want to fight bis sister's husband, but to show that he wasn’t afraid he offered to sit with Mason on a powder keg and apply a lighted match to it. When Mason refused to acceijf thls amendment Col. Jack then offered to mount to the dome of the eapi tol and jump off. But upon Mr, Mason still remaining stubborn the old roan ac cepted the challenge and killed his oppo nent at the first tire. ‘•On another occasion business called the old gentleman to Arkansas, In de scribing his experience afterward he said he found there tberoughestcrowd he had ever seen, and the Colonel was no tender foot, I assure you. One day at the hotel a big, burly fellow, whose evident inten tion was a quarrel, in walking past the old man stepped on his toes, lie did this several times, accompanying each action with a mock apology for his awkward ness. The Colonel bore it until he be came satisfied of the fellow’s inten tions, and then ho suddenly gave him a kick wnich sent him half way across the room, at the same time raising his hat and politely remarking, ‘I beg your pardon.’ As the bully turned upon Mac the latter thrust a six-shooter under his nose and asked if he could do anything more for him. The fellow, who was not without a grim sense of humor, cooly replied: ‘I thank you. I’m no hog. I know when I’ve had enough.’” The ingenuity of Women. From the Chicago Tribune. There is a Bible in Lucas county, 0., which was preserved by being baked in a loaf of bread. It now belongs to a Mr. Scbebolt, who is a native ot Bohemia, Austria. This baked Bible was formerly the property of his grandmother, who was ataithful I’rotestaut Chris.ian. During one of the seasons when the Roman Catho lics were persecuting the Protestants In that country a law was passed that every Bible in the bands of the people should be given up to the priests'tbat it might be burnt. Then those who loved tbeir Bibles had to contrive different plans in order to try and save the precious book. When the priests came round to search the house it happened to be baking-day. Mrs. Sche bolt,tbe grandmother of tile present owner of this Bible, had a large family. She had just prepared a great batch of dough when she heard that the priests were ooming. She took her precious Bible, wrapped it carelully up and put it in the centre of a huge mass of dougn which was to fill her largest bread tin and stowed it away in the oven and baked it. The priests came and searched the house care lully through, but they did not find the Bible. When the search was over and the danger passed the Bible was taken outof tbeloaf and found uninjured. 6*uuiue hud Approved by All.
