Bmj Scene# in the Stores and Streets
Oddities in Easter Cards Deft
l ingers Busy Fashioning Little Loves
of Bonnets Some of the Budding
Toilet Beauties of Springtime.
V e, ASTER TIDE with its beau
/r ' llful flowers, pretty cards,
gems ot bonnets, eggs, light
dresses, new styles, orange
Jjw blossoms and weddings, white
hats, spring suits and the eud
9 ~ • o( Lent, may be said to be
ushered in altogether with a rush on this,
the first day of Holy Week %
Florists’ heaiti are always clad
at this season of the year, and they are
particularly so this year, because orders
are piline up and their green houses are
just burdened with exquisitely lovely
blooms. Scores of orders for the latter
part of the week have already
been sent in, to the delight of the growers.
White roses, Easter lilies, the passion
flower, calla lilies nnd camellas are the
most popular at this season. The floral
trade promises to be heavy, and the deco
rations are likely to be on a larger scale
than usual.
The stook of Easter cards in the stores
has already begun to show signs of
dwindling. There was quite a run last
week, lor many wanted to get the first
pick. The box cards are as pretty as
ever. .New fancies are not numerous,
but some of the designs are very odd
and quaint. More care has been taken
s-ither by the dealers in selecting or the
manufacturers in getting up their goods.
Asa rule the cards are better
finished. Crosses and lilies and land
scapes and doves are conspicuous in the
designs, both on the hand-painted and the
pointed ones. Bannerets wave at every
si/ason, at Christmas as well as at Easter,
yjrgs and cute little yellow chickens are
worked into a good many different de
signs. While there are a lew high
fpriced Easter gifts in the shape of cards,
Ithe most of them oau he bought for less
/than SO.
As for the Raster bonnets, all one has
I to do is to read the advertisements, or,
j better still, glance In a millinery window,
! Bnd an idea of what is prepared iu luat
* line will be speedily obtained. Nine out
•ot every ten ladies who passed a well
dressed window yesterday breathed a
faint sigh in high C ns her eyes feasted
on the aggregation of straw, leather aid
t fiower loveliness. Every husband and
(lather who passed the same windows
bteathed a sigh in D flat as he thought of
f' he bills that will be sent in. All of the
>ig stores have been busy for the past
i.hree or four days, for they held their
. ripenings last week.
( “We have great orowds, but very little
biuytngon opening day,” remarked Mr.
./idler, of Altmayer & Cos., ye-terday af
ternoon. "The ladies attend openings to
)• x>k over the stock and see what there is
t( > suit their fancy. If they are pleased
t hey will come back afterward and buy,
;liut Saturday is the worst day in the
i/week for bonnets and dress goods. Alon
,*day Is the best day lor the latter.”
All of the large stores have had to en
gage extra help. A crush is expected all
of this week. The shopping was brisk
syesterday afternoon. The Tandy goods
‘counters were lined with fair purchasers,
'and the nimble lingers of the salesgirls
must have aoued when night came. Some
of the oases containing trimmings for
bonnets were tilled with feathers and
flowers in the most delicate and beauti
ful tints. The flowers this spring are so
natural that one Is disappointed because
Itbere is no fragrance.
The advance guard of the light dresses
jniade their appearance on Hull street
(several days ago, and their number has
’been steadily increasing ever since. A
■batter said last nigftt that he had not sold
many light hats, and that they would not
jbe out in numbers until next Sunday. A
lew though are expeoted to be out on
parade to-day.
When the robin and the lapwing are
discarding their winter trappings, as the
3>oet eaith, the young man's fancy turns
quite as much, perhaps, to a spring suit
as it does to thoughts of tender seuti
meot. The counters reallv seem to hold
a more varied assortment this season
jtbau last and to the purchasers’ joy the
prices are moderate.

The Salvation Soldiers Make Their
First, street Parade.
Col. M. K. Light, of the Salvation
Aimy, called on .Mayor Lester yesterday
and was granted permission to parade
through tire streets. The Colonel sought
the advice of a Morning Mews reporter
about a tit line of March. As the crusad
ers say that they are after the nou-eburcti
goers and as a short route was wanted
the Colonel was advised to inarch down
to Bryan street, past Washington squaie,
up East Broad, along South Broad to
Price, thence to Broughton, to Whitaker
and the Fords’ Hail.
At 7 o’clock last night a detachment
consisting ot nine men, headed by Col.
Light, started. Every one except tin*
Colonel bad tonne instrument. He acted
as commanding officer and drum-major
combined, and walked backward In i <•
most approved drum-major fashion. Tut*
hand attracted a crowd, which followed
quietly. Tne soldiers did not reach Wash
ington square, but turned up Lincoln
street to Broughton. Somewliare about
Congress anil Lincoln a volley of bad
odored evgs was tired at the crusaders.
Three spiaabed against the soldier with
the big horn, it was said, but one of lbe
band stated afterwards that no ore
was hit. There was much less guving
and jeering than wae expected. A man
named smith, who was pretty full,
thought that the Colonel ought not to
have to perrorui the duties of drum-major
and joined in the procession. As last as
he was pushed out of the way he turned
and took his position again. Mo special
force was used and the crowd guyed
Smith rutbor more than it did the Salva
Mayor Lester watched a part of the
parade on Broughton street from a car
riage, which followed the lino for a few
blocks for the purpose of seeing bow the
crowd behaved. The meeting at the
Fords’ Hall last night was crowded- Oue
of the sisters stood at the door and held
out her tambourine for contributions.
Anything was accepted from a copper to
a silver dollar. The Salvationists call
tnat taking up a collection. They sav
that it is difficult to get around through
the audience when it is sealed. Some of
ttie spectators thought it was an admis
sion lee. This afternoon there will be
another parade it the programme decided
on last night is carried out. The female
members of the post will probably join
in the inarch to-day, which is expected to
begiu about 2 o’clock.

construcred part of the road in Mexico.
The Month of Blustering Winds on
Its Good Roll avion.
March is usually regarded as a stormy
and blustering month, but the one just
past has been a decided exception to the
rule in that U was characterized by an
entire absense of storms and an exceed
ingly light rainfall in this vicinity. l'b e
amount of rainfall (.76 of an inch) is the
lightest on record at the signal office here,
being only one-fifth ol the average amount
for March. The weather was remarkably
clear, there being 18 clear, 9 fair and *4
cloudy days.
The month opened quite warm nnd
pleasant, but a oold spell trom the 18th
to 20th did much damage to fruit and
vegetables. Tins ireeze, and the cold
spell of the 29tb aud 391 h lowered the
mean temperature of the month to 56.6
degs., or about 3 (legs, below the
normal. The highest temperature was
81.2 degs, on the 7tb, aud the lowest 32.5
dugs, on the 19th. Thunderstorms oc
curred on the 28th and 31st. Tire pre
vailing wind direction was from the
northwest. The following table shows

The Game Stall* Empty—What the
Vegetable Growers Say.
No game was offered In the market yes
terday. The Georgia game laws went
into effect on Friday, aud the stalls which
have been filled during the winter with
wild fowl and game were empty or filled
with something else. In other respects
the market was well supplied.
The vegetable stalls did not look as
though quite evervtbiug was killed by the
frost, l'eas, Florida beans, new potatoes,
the latter about the size of birds’ eggs, let
tuce, spinach,radisliesuudcabbages were
in abundance. Toe hsh market had an
abundance and variety, Shrimps were
in quantity. After this week, which
closes the Lenten season, the meat stalls
will t>e better supplied.
The vegetable growers say that the
frost yesterday morning was heavier
than it has been at any time since the
freezing weather began. Ice formed an
eighth of an Inch in thickness. All of the
early vegetables—beans, cucumbers, po
tatoes and tomatoes —are killed outright.
The hurdler vegetables, though seriously
crippled and set back in their growth,
are yet marketable.
The growers are disposed to take as
cheerful a view of tile situation as possi
ble, and they say that unless there comes
another and harder freeze than any yet
they will be able to supply tne local mar
ket, though they will not make much on
their shipments.

Engineers BlsnforU A Clow Get Back
Their Claims How ih Papers Uame
Into Van Fosseo’s Possession The
Augusta Police Interview Stsj. Branch
—Tne Hsv.nnah Officers That Went to
Augusta Return Without Their Man,
Nothing definite was heard yesterday
from G. W. Van Fossen, the ex-general
and railway contractor. J. J. Abrams,
Eq., who represented Messrs. Blanfnrd
and Clow, the young civil engineers, said
last night that he supposed Van Fossen
was in Pennsylvania. Neither he nor his
olients seemed to care any longer, as they
had received back their claims by mail.
They were forward.*d by Maj. T. P.
Branch, of Augusta, who was on the
train that carried Van Fossen away
Thursday night.
As stated in Friday’s Morning News
the train started while Mr. Clow was try
ing to get Van Fossen out of the car.
As soon as the engineer got back to the
Pulaski House that night he consulted
his attorney, and the following dispatch
was sent:
Gen tail. Hood, Lieutenant of Police. Au
gutn’. Arrest amt detain G. W. Van Fossen,
about 5 feet 7; buck moustache, dyed; stout
build. Will send warrant when arrested,
left by night train. J. J. Abrams.
Following the above telegram was one
to Chief Twiggs:
Bee dispatch to Geo. Hood sent to-night. I
refer you to F. H. Miller. Van Fossen is
wanted for cheating and swindling. Branch
is on same train anil can point him out. If
arrested wire me and will send officer with
warrant. J. J. Abrams.
Later in the night Mr. Abrams sent this
to Lieut. Hood:
it is a mutter of personal interest to me to
arrest Van Fossen. Look to you to do so if it
can be done. Branch on same train; knows
him well, wears wide rim beaver hat. largo
watch chain, dyed moustache. See F. if.
Miller. Answer at once if received first te.e
Sergt. Cartledge was detailed to watch
the Central train on its arrival at Au
gusta. The Chronicle says that as ho
started through the sleeper he was stop
ped by the conductor at the door and told
that he could not go through, as some la
dies were dressing at the end of the oar,
and thus the Sergeant lost his prey.
Alter looking rouud some time and
not finding bis man he was in
formed that a man answering the
description to the onu he wanted left the
train in company with Maj. Branch. He
then hastened to Maj. Branch’s residence
on Greene street, and in response to the
Sergeant’s hurried ring the servant said
tnat Maj. Branch bad just come in and
had retired and could not he seen. Sergt.
Cartledge insisted, snd the message was
carried lo the Major ot the great necessity
of the Sergeant seeing him. He appeared
at the door, deshabille and barefooted.
The Sergeant qnlckly told his mission
and the necessitv of haviug Van Fossen.
Maj. Branch told him that it was all a
mistake; tbat be had the bonds and pa
pers and tbat he had told Van Fossen
that he could not get out of Georgia, and
even if he did get to Pennsylvania they
couid bring him back. He said that
would ruin him. He said, further, that
be bad more on Van Fossen than the
Savauuahians and that he could not get
away. He would send a telegram to Mr.
Johnson and it, when they received an
answer, thmrs were not satisfactory he
would point Van losseu out lo them.
Mr. Branoh then wired Mr. T. F. John
son at Savannah:
Van Fossen is here. Re turned over War
ren contract, twenty bond* and his construc
tion contract to me. Do you still want him
The Warren contract referred lo was
an agreement made between Col. Warren
and Van Fossen when the latter went
through the form ot buying Col. Warren’s
interest in the road. As Van Fossen
never fulfilled his part of the agreement
Col. W arren wanted to got the oontract
out of his possession.
It has since turned out that Van Fossen
turned over the papers belonging to the
engineers at the same time he gave up
tne oontraots and bunds to Maj. Branoh.
which was at Milieu. When that was
learned yesterday they did not care what
became of the alleged manager of the
alleged United States Railroad Construc
tion Company. He probably left Au
gusta Friday night. Constable Entires,
who went to Augusta with a warrant for
“him, is expected back this morning.
A telegram sent to the conduotor on
the train Thursday night, and which Vau
Fossen probably got *n inkling of, to
gether with the telecrams sent to the
police at Augusta, evidently frightened
him into settling. As long as arrest was
not threatened be deceived the engineers
and put them off, but when the matter
was plaood in the hands of an attorney
he quickly skipped, but did not esoape."
Messrs. Clow and Rlanford’s claims
amount to about $1,500. Van Fossen rep
resented to them that he had $40,000 of
the Savannah, Dublin and Western’s
stock and the contract to build the road.
President Linderman states that he never
transferred any stock to Van Fossen.
Neither the company nor any of its direc
tors were interested in the Van Fossen
episode, hut they were really benefited
by the papers which he turned over to
Mr. Branoh.
Good Results In Everj Gate.
D. A. Bradford, wholesale paper dealer,
of Chattanooga, Tenn., writes that he was
seriously afflicted with a severe cold that
settled on his lungs; had tried many
remedies w ithout benefit. Being induced
to try Dr. King’s New Dicovery for Con
sumption, did so, and was entirely cured
by use of a few bottles. Since which
time he has used it in his family for all
Coughs and Colds with best results. This
is the experience of thousanos whose
lives have been saved by this Wonderful
Discovery. Trial bottles free at Llppm&ii

Housekeepers Showing; Their Ap
preciation of Big Bargains.
If ever a palpable hit was scored in
mercantile life it lias been done oy J. G.
Nelson fc Cos., the wall-known grocers un
der the Guards’ armory, corner of Whita
ker and President streets. Their success
is the result ol selling goods ot tbo best
quality obtainable at the cheap
est possible prices. They promised
the public that this would he their
rule and they have kept their promise.
What’s the nss paying somebody else a
little more for the very same (andpossi
bly a little better) butter, tea, sugar,
coffee, rice, lard, flour, canned goods and
other grocery staples whan you can save
money by going to Nelson & Co.’s. The
very fact that their trada continues to in
crease with such phenomenal strides is
proof that the public is finding out the
truth of the firm’s assertions. Call and

A Fertile Spot,
Savannah is a fertile spot in which to
plant Pianos and Organs. We owed a
great many the first year we went into
that business, and now they have grown
up and borne a hundred told. We are
selling a great many instruments in this
oity and this section of the country. The
secret of our success in this line Is that
we keep only first-class Instruments,
those that we can conscientiously recom
mend, and that never go back on us. See
what a list ol manufacturers wo repre
sent, not a one of them a second-clues
concern, but firms of prominence and
The celebrated “Kuabe Pianos,” from
the factories of Messrs. William Knahe
A Cos., Baltimore, Md.
The “Kranloh & Bach Pianos,” from
their factories in New York city.
The ’‘Estev Piano,” from their New
York* factory".
The •’Augustus Bau9 & Co.’s Piano,”
from their New York factory, and the
i “Estey Organs,” from the company’s
I factories at Brattleboro, Vt.
We are prepared to sell any of these
instruments at factory prices, just as
cheap as you can buy them in New York
or anywhere else. We can sell you on as
easy terms as any house in the country,
within a measure, will sell you on your
■ own time and installments. A full five
