Atlanta's Big Sensation,
The Wife of Thomas J. Leftwich Sues for
Atlanta, Ga., has a big sensation, the
occasion being the instituting of a suit
for divorce by Mrs. Camilla Leftwich
from her husband, Mr. Thomas J. Left
wich, a prominent lawyer of that city.
Mrs. Leftwich was a Miss Price, a mem
ber of one of the best families of Vir
ginia. An Atlanta dispatch to the
Savannah News says:
Mr. Leftwich, who came to Atlanta
to practice law about ten years ago, was j
especially commended to the people of
this city and section because he was
the sou of the Rev. Dr. Leftwich, for
years the beloved pastor of the First
Presbyterian church of this city, and a
man of wide reputation and iufluence.
He educated his son in both theology
an! law and made him a graduate of
Johns Hopkins University, of Balti

also stationed in church work for a
The bill for divorce was filed in De-
Kalb county Tuesday morning, the
mere factof its filing being made known
here Tuesday evening. The details,
which are highly sensational, however,
did not come out until Attorney Left
wich handed them in for publication
later in the evening.
His wife, who is living in Atlanta, at
the Normandie Hotel, on Peachtree
street, based her bill upon the ground
of infidelity,.without going into details.
This Mr. Leftwich followed by unfold
ing a story which is one of the most
unique in the annals of divorce pro
ceedings in this State. He confesses
the charges and, going further, tells
how he has for six years or more lived
a dual life, the fruit of his illicit love
being two children, the oldest a boy of
five years and the youngest a girl baby
of a few months.

Democratic Committee Meets
in Richmond.
The Democratic Executive and State
Central committee met in Richmond j
Thursday night for the purpose of.
mapping out the congressional cam
paign and to discuss the situation in
every district. The meeting -was hc!d
at Murphy's Hotel and was called to
order by State Chairman J. Taylor
Ellyson. The session was a private one
aud only members of the committee
were present.
More than ball of the session cf tbe
committee was devoted to considering
the situation in the Ninth District.
Judge William V. Rhea, the Democratic
candidate, was not present. 11. T. Ir •
vine, of Big Ctont Cap, a member of
the committee from that district, dis
cussed tbe situation there at length.
The lack of unity in party ranks in
Washington county was fully discussed
and methods calculated to produce
harmony wer.? considered. The differ
ences between the Watermelon and
anti-Watermelon factions in Washing
ton county, have not been entirely
healed, but they have not threatened to
endanger Democratic success in the
Ninth district. It was realized that
Judge Rhea is making a splendid light
in that district, and every member of
the committee felt that it was due him,
personally, as well as due tbe party,
that he receive the united and enthusi
astic support of the party.
The exact nature of the methods
which were adopted by the committee
to harmonize the factions in Washing
ton were not made public, but a mem
ber from the Ninth district stated after
adjournment that he believed they
would be successful.
It was the general opinion of the com
mitteemen from tbe Ninth district that
Judge Rhea will be elected. If General
Walker is returned to CongreES it will
be through no sin of commission or
omission on the part of the Democratic
candidate, who has thus early given evi
dence that the campaign which he will
conduct will be remarkably prudent,
cautious, and aggressive.
The situation in the Tenth district
was discussed by Judge J. M. Quarles,
the Democratic candidate, and by sev
eral members of tbe committee from
j that district. The prcspects were
shown to be highly gratifying—indeed,
a member of the committee said they
were all surprised to learn that the out
look for Democratic success in this Re
publican district was so good. There
are strong reasons for believing that
Mr. Yost will be succeeded by a Demo
crat. Mr. Hubard, the Republican
nominee, is not nearly so strong as Mr.
Yost, and factional differences will, it
is thought, contribute largely to his de
There was practically no doubt ex
pressed as to the result iv the other dis
tricts of the State. Democratic success
is in every instance assured, unless some
unfoiseen contingency arises. In the
Second and Fourth, in which the candi
dates are Hon. William A. Young and
Hon. Sidney P. Epee, respectively, who
were elected to the last Congress, but
who were unseated by the Republican
majority, the indications point to their
receiving such a majority that the Re
publicans will be awed into allowing
them to retain their seats in peace.
Upon the whole, it was stated that
the committee was extremely gratified
by the reports received. In two dis
tricts it will take hard work to beat out
a Democratic victory, but the party is
eminently in the humor to light, and if
work is all that is required, it will be
The campaign has not been fairly
opened in any of the districts save the
Ninth and Tenth, though in all much
work in a quiet way is beiug done. The
time for the opening of the campaign by
the establishment of State headquarters
in Richmond was discussed, but no ac
tion was taken, and the matter will be
left with the chairman and secretary.
The session of the committee lasted
about three hours. The attendance
was unusually large, both of officers and
party leaiers, including members of
Congress and of both housesof the Gen
eral Assembly.
The Democratic candidates for Con
gress who were present at tbe commit
tee meeting were Messrs. Young of the
Second district; Lamb, of the Third;
Epes, of ttie Fourth; Swanson, of the
Fifth;Hay,of the Seventh; Rixey.of the
Eighth, and Quarles, of the Tenth.
Lt.-Covernor Echols was also present
aud gave the committee the benefit of
his advice of the outlook in this district.
Overwork, either physical or mantal,
will produce weakness and loss of ener
gy. Too many business or family cares
overwork in the harvest field, an ex
cess of woman's work and worry, will
produce months of misery. To prevent
this the exhausted system should be
reinforced immediately. Dr. J. H. Mc-
Lean's Strengthening Cordial and
Blood Purifier is an appropriate reme
dy. Price 50c and ?1 a bottle.

The Cincinnati Price-Current of last
Thursday says:—
The week now closed has been as fa
vorable as it could be for the maturing
crop in most sections of the West, and
tbe prevailing tenor of late information
is somewhat more encouraging than
previously. The general situation, how
ever, is without important change, the
position being mainly one of mainte
uance of maturing conditions, while iv
many instances the grain of later growth
has in reality realized improvement
from recent rains. In Ohio and Indiana
a considerable part of the crop is in
good promise. In Illinois the condi
tions are quite irregular, the average
appearing to suggest considerable defi
ciency, many localities being decidedly
short, while in some instances good
yield is assured. In lowa tbe crop is
uneven in promise, much of it very
good, considerable of it quite deficient,
and the general promise fairly good.
In Missouri a good proportion of the
crop promises well, some of it is con
siderably injured and deficient. In Kan
sas and Nebraska there will be import
ant deficiencies. In the Northwest the
situation is generally good. A large
crop is reported to have matured in
In the other crops the week has made
no new development, of notable char
acteristic. Conditions have continued
to favor autumn plowing operations in
most sections, and such work has pro
gressed more favorably .than usual-
There is maintenance of expression of
unwillingness of farmers to market
wheat freely at current values, and the
fact that inteiior millers are paying
prices above a shipping basis makes it
plain that primary receipts do not fully
reflect the extent of the marketings iv
omparison with other years. The wheat
is being absorbed near the producing
The wheat markets have not changed
much, closing at Chicago fractionally
higher than a week ago. Prices are so
low that an essential decline is not look
ed for, and the plentitulness of availa
ble supplies anticipated for the near fu
ture holds in check expectations with
reference to an advancing tendency.
Notwithstanding the more cheerful
talk concerning the incoming corn crop
the market for this grain is being well
sustained, and quite likely may continue
to display a lack of tendency downward.
September wheat at Chicago closed lie
below the highest point of tbe week,
He above the lowest point, and $c high
er than a week ago.
Corn at Chicago for September clos
ed fc below the highest point of the
week, ie above the lowest point and
§c lower than a week ago.
Wheat receipts at primary markets
were 5,757,000 bushels for the week
against 3,895.000 the preceding week,
and 5,939,000 last year.
Corn receipts were 4,400,000 bushels,
against 3,490,000 the preceding week,
and 7,880.000 last year.
