Huy of Whistler fell from an oak tree yesterday afternoon, breaking his arm In the fall. Carrollton News: We have made very diligent inquiry, and gather that the present cotton crop of Pickens Is about 25 per cent short of last year's crop. Carrollton News: Pickens grew this year perhaps the largest corn crop of her history. Now. If the cholera don’t break out amohg the hogs there will be plenty of meat next year. Collinsville Clipper: The present sea son insures an abundant harvest, and most all of the farmers are pretty well fixed for the coming winter with plenty of hog a:.d hominy. Huntsville Tribune: Three goldbug papers in Alabama have been burled while the silver craze was dying, and there are others that might ds well be dead for the good they are doing any body. Collinsville Clipper: Thomas Carroll of Lathamville, aged 75 years, has recently wooed and won the heart and hand of Mrs.' Olem Holdbrooks, aged about 50 years, of the same community, over some gallant men. and on Saturday night, the 28th ultimo, the two were united as one. Salem correspondent Opelika News: "Mr. George Barnett of Beat 9 was in Sa lem last week and he says the farmers in his neighborhood are in a much bet ter fix this fall than they have been for some time. He says most all of them will pay out of debt and will have plenty to eat at home. Ozark Star: Numbers of farmers all over southeast Alabama have made this year fine crops of rice, and are Independ ent of the South Carolina rice crop. One would be surprised to sec what fine rice is raised by our farmers, upon dry land at that. Southeast Alabama and Dale county are truly the garden spots of Ala bama. Mobile Herald: We are reminded by the death of General Mohone that the old Third Alabama was in his brigade at Norfolk and fought Its first fight, the battle of Seven Pines, under his com mand. The Mobile cadets, Mobile Blfies, Gulf City Guards and Washington Bight Infantry formed a part of the Third Ala bama. Ozark Star: A Star reporter saw last Monday afternoon one man leading out of town five fine young Tennessee mules that he bought from our stock men, pay ing the spot cash for them.

Huntsville Tribune: The Montgomery Advertiser accuses the Birmingham State Herald of abandoning "free silver" and coming out for "bimetallism.” The Bir mingham journal has not abandoned "free silver.” It has only put on new clothes, moved to new premises and promised to behave better, and we can testlfyTt has not hit a hard lick since it turned over a new leaf.

Kufaula Times: The dwelling house of Mr. Jim Singleton, near this place, was destroyed hy fire a' few days ago. to gether with all its contents, besides about two bales of seed cotton belonging to Mr. Singleton and Mr. G. W. Sims. The loss was very heavy on Mr. Singleton, especially, and the good people of beat 8 cannot do a more charitable deed than to assist Mr. Singleton in replacing his property. Opelika News: Tkc mill property of Mrs Hebecca Robinson at Gold Hill was burned last Saturday morning. The burning was accidental. The lady's friends sympathise with her in this heavy loss. Mr. John W. Allen of Gold Hill lost his barn, together with his en tire crop of corn and fodder, last Satur day evening. The loss is serious, falling heavily upon a hard-working, worthy gentleman.

Mrs. Alex Polis returned home yester day from Birmingham, where she has been for several days on a visit to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hutchinson. Mrs. Hutchinson is in feeble health. Her brother, Robert, is at home sick with malarial fever. The scare about smallpox in Bessemer has about subsided. It was caused by some negroes who had come from Mex ico that had had the disease, but were well. They were promptly herded as soon as they landed. They were made to go out in an old field and burn their bundles, for fear some of the germs of the disease might be in them, and were put on the southbound Alabama Great Southern and forwarded to their destina tion. It looks like the new furnaces to make a certain quality of iron for the steel plant Is not all talk, as several car loads of steel rails have been unloaded near the pipe works to construct the road to the plant. Miss Lula Watsor., a niece of Mrs. W. J. Allen, paid her aunt a short visit and has returned to her post of duty at War rior. She is teaching school there.

The boys all seemed to enjoy having a day off. andiToden arrested In Cullman and Brought to Birmingham. Charged With Murder. Andy Oden was arrested at Cullman yesterday and brought back here to an swor to a charge of murder. The crime with which he is charged was committed between Blossburg and Cardiff a week ago today.

JASPEH. 1 ANovel and Interesting Damage Suit—Con siderable Sickness. ■ I Jasper, Oct. 10.—(Special Correspond ence.)—The city ot Jasper has an ordi nance which makes it unlawful for any horse, mule, jack or jenny to run at large upon the streets, avenues, parks and boulevards of said city, and the vio lation of this ordinance by Mr. J. M. Kitchens is the immediate cause of a very interesting damage suit now pend ing in the court of Judge W. H. Duffee. On August 5 last Mr. J. H. Elliott, who owns a very fine mare, was driving on the streets, followed by his celebrated Hailey Peyton colt, when-Mr. Kitchens' horse began to chase the colt and kept It up to such an extent that the mare be came frightened and ran away, causing serious injury, for which Mr. Elliott has asked the court to give him damages. After several attempts the case came to trial on yesterday, but has not yet been finished, and no matter what the verdict Is the case will go up higher, for both parties Rtand ready to make an ap peal bond. Mr. T. L. Sowell represents the plaint iff, and Coleman & Bankhead the de fense. The case promises to become of more than local interest. There is more sickness in Jasper now than for a long time past. However, no one is seriously ill new. Cortton is now beginning to move with us, and our mer chants are doing a good business. As is well known to persons familiar with our county, our crop is thirty days later always than In the valleys. Our moun tains are great for coal, but a little be low the average on cotton. The coal mines throughout our district arc all do ing nicely, with the exception of a small "lock-out” at Gamble, which will be set tled within a few days. Mr. L. P. Hebard. agent for the B., S. * T. here, has been changed to the Shef field office, much to the regret of our en tire business community. "Heb” is a good railroad man, and a popular and de eerving fellow. _ HUNTSVILLE. Herbert Speaks Friday Night—Death of Mr. Thomas J. Martin. Huntsville, Oct. 9.—(Special Corre spondence.)—Hon. Hilary A. Herbert, secretary of the navy, will address the citizens and public generally at the opera house in this city on next Friday In ad vocacy of the administration's financial policy. A large gathering of the people it is hoped and believed will be present and hear the distinguished Alabamian. A very large majority of the people of this county hold opposite views from the secretary on this subject, believing that silver should be coined without limit at the ratio of 16 to 1, with all the mintage rights now enjoyed by gold. Still they are a fair and Just people and will come out. If for no other purpose, to show their respect to a distinguished son of this great state. It Is possible that the Hon. Jesse Stallings will be here on that day, and, if so, he will address the public in answer to the Hon. Mr. Herbert. Mr. Thomas J. Martin, a prominent merchant of this city, and one of the best citizens of this county, died In Nashville Monday from the effects of a surgical operation performed on him about ten days ago for the purpose of extracting a ball Mr. Martin received about five years ago in his left side from the pistol of a negro burglar, who was attempting to rob the store of Martin & Crocker at Go lightly, this county, where Mr. Martin was then doing business. He moved here about two years ago to take charge of a stock of goods as the assignee of Mitchell & Harris and has continued in business here since. Mr. Martin’s remains were brought here yesterday from Nashville and taken out to. his old home and will be burled today. Mr. Martin was a brother of ex-Attomey-General W. L. Martin of Montgomery, but formerly of Scot tsboro. Hon. Jess Stallings has accepted an invitation to come to Huntsville and will be here Friday. Silver men will ask a di vision of time with Colonel Herbert. If he does not accept Colonel Stallings will speak at night. Next day (Saturday) he will organize* a bimetallic league at Scot tsboro.

A day or two ago Postofflce Inspector Little swore out a warrant for the arrest of Fred Mankin and Mollie Gallacher of Gate City, on the charge of breaking open the postofTlce at that place and stealing $30.
