Choccolocco, Dec. 3.—(Special.)—This morning Mrs. Betsy Elslon died very suddenly of heart failure. She was well when she retired for the night and this morning at 5 o'clock was a corpse. Also, Mr. William Simpson, who lives near here, fell dead this morning while a! work Mr. Carrol had his barn burned last n.ghf. lt was a small barn and not a heavy loss. This is the second barn burned in the last ten days in this neigh borhood. Our fanners are in good condition this fail, as they are nearer out of debt, and neaily all of them have plenty of meat to do them.

Va., Dec. 4.—The cold est weather of Ihe season was experi enced here last night. John Sharp, a painter, whose home was at New Mar tinsville, Va.. was found frosen to death on a hill two miles south of here. He had been employed here for several months, and was out late last night, when he was probably overcome by the severe weather. \ A BOSTON SCANDAL. A Young Lawyer and Mrs. Francis L. Higgin • son Are Missing and Are Supposed to Have Gone Abroad. Boston, Dec. 4.—Mrs. Francis L. Hig ginson, wife of the famous banker and a social favorite, has forsaken her home and family, leaving no word behind her. She has been gone over two weeks. There is also missing from the same social set Mr. James W. Smith, a young lawyer. Mrs. Higginson is within a few months of 40 years of age, and the mother of four children. Her husband is about ten years her senior. Smith is only 2G years of age. The two have been friends In society for some months past, and the young man's devo tion to the matron has caused considera ble comment. Mrs. Higginson left here for New York Saturday, saying that she intended tak ing in the horse show, and that she would be back in two or three days. Smith went to New York two weeks ago. He said he was going to meet his mother, who resides at the Hotel Savoy in New York, and that he would be back on Thanksgiving day. This Is the last definite information concerning him. It is said that Smith met Mrs. Higgin son in New York and attended the horse show with her, and that both of them stopped at the Waldorf at least a part of the time. It is believed that Mrs. Hig ginson and young Smith took passage on the steamship Columbia for Genoa No vember 23. Society is much wrought up over the dual disappearance, and the families of the principals are heart-bro ken. It is understood that the steamer Col umbia will be met at Genoa by agents of the Higginsons to determine whether or not the belief is well founded. It is not thought likely that an arrest will be made if the couple should be fbund. but the Higginsons wUl not say what they propose to do. Young Smith, it is said, had very little money when he left home. Mrs. Higgin son did not have any great amount of ready cash with her. but she did have some valuable jewelry. None of her friends cnn account for her conduct ex cept on the ground that she has become mentally unbalanced. GREENVILLE. The Result of 1 he City Election—Democrats Solid for Johnston. Greenville, Dec. 3.—(Special Corre spondence.)—At the city election held here yesterday Dr. J. C. Kendrick was elected mayor and Capt. R. Y. Porter, John Grant, J. Lee" Long, Henry Lelch ttn and Claude Hamilton, Esq., were elected councilmon. These are all pro gressive men, and will give the city a good government for the next two years. The Schubert quartette will be here on the 6th instant to fill their engagement with the Young Men’s Christian associa tion, being one of the attractions secured for their iyceum course this season. Judge Zell Gaston of this city is pres ident of the Alabama State Poultry and Pet Stock association, and says that the association will hold its first exhibition in Montgomery from the 10th to the 13th in stant, inclusive, and that it bids fair to be a big success, as they have assurances from a large number of poultrymen from all parts of the country that they will send their birds and pet stock., A sufficient sum of money has been raised to pay all premiums. Those wishing in formation and premium lists can obtain* the same by writing to the secretary, Mr. G. F. W. Keynton, at Montgomery. The majority of democrats here, re gardless of their financial views, believe the best thing for harmony is to nomi nate Joe Johnston for governor. We are glad to believe that the Advertiser and Register have both lost their power to further injure the party. About the best thing they can do now to keep up the fight would be to put up the editor of the Register for governor and Frank Glass for United States senator, and the postmaster at Montgomery for congress. They would come about as near winning with this ticket as any they are apt to name. RAPHAEL CARAVEL LA, Chop House, Corner 1st Avenue and 20th Street, No. 1931.

Baltimore, Md., Dec. 4.—Hon. Hoke Smith, secretary of the Interior; Post master-General Wilson; Secretary ot the Navy Herbert; Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Dr. C. W. Dabney; Hon. John R. Proctor, president of the United States civil seryice commission; Governor Atkinson of Georgia; Ex-GovernjqEj Northen; Mayor King of Atlanta; Presi dent Collier of the exposition; ClatSc Howell, editor of the Atlanta Constitu tion; Editor Richardson of the Journal; General Avery, South American commis sioner of the Atlanta exposition, and others contribute to this week's issue tif the Manufacturers' Record their views upon the effect of the Atlanta exposition upon the south and the country at large, and upon the continuation of this goAd work through the proposed Baltimore Southern exposition of 1897, Secretary Smith points out how the At lanta exposition has attracted the atten tion of tlie country, and how a still larger exposition at Baltimore would deeply im press upon all sections the great oppor tunities for investment in the south. Secretary Herbert says; “The material resources of the south, as shown by tli^ Atlanta exposition, are evert amazing to a southern man. If Atlanta lias been1 able' to do so much, Baltimore, with its 500,000 people, ought to be able to carry forward the work of southern develop ment through an exposition on a still larger scale.” Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Dr. Dabney says: “The cheap lands of the south, where three crops can be raised in one year, offer the finest opportunity opening in the world at the present time for intel ligent and industrious farmers. The po litical and industrial conditions that have rendered the southern people so indiffer ent to immigration, and that have to a certain extent kept other people from go ing into that country, have passed away, and an immediate invasion of the south is just dawning. The Atlanta exposi tion, coming as it did during a period of hard times, is for the most part a bril liant success. If it has failed in any point it is not in securing more general and enthusiastic co-operation ori the part of the southern states, and it may not there fore present the resources of the south with that completeness which is desira ble and which would have been possible had all the southern states followed the example of Georgia and Alabama, and made the most of this magnificent oppor tunity to make their riches known to the world.” thinks, will therefore afford the south a great opportunity to make up whatever may have been lacking in the Atlanta exposition. President Proctor of the civil service commission says: “The time is approach ing when the southern states will liegin to export iron and rfianufacture cotton. The exposition at Baltimore will be the best opportunity hitherto afforded for southern exhibits of minerals, because It is in such easy reach of the class of men most interested in such things." Gen. I. W. Avery says: “We are enter ing on a great era. In which the south is at last coming to the front as a mighty factor, and this section will look to the Baltimore exposition to keep up Its evo lution of material progress. Atlanta has drawn the world's attention to the south's claims and shown that the United States Is developing immeasurable ca pacities for the growth of International trade supremacy, and to Baltimore be longs the duty of carrying on this su preme apotheosis of our long depressed section so affluent In native wealth.” Good fishing at East Lake 12-1-tf _ The 0nto Is Fixed.

London, Dec. 4.—A dispatch to the Standard from Constantinople says that the question of admission of additional gunships Into the Bosphorus is in sus pense and all diplomatic action in the matter is at a complete standstill for the moment. Some of the ambassadors are still awaiting fresh Instructions from their governments. All of the diplomats are of the belief that the exercise of stronger pressure by far than that which has hitherto been brought to bear on the porte will be necessary to induce the sul tan to yield, and it is understood that such action will be taken upon receipt of replies of ambassadors of the powers. The sultan has made a personal appeal i to the Russian. Austrian, German and French governments that they agree not to press their demands, but without suc cess. THE PARIS EXPOSITION. Strong Hostility to It Exhibited in the Par liamentary Committee. Paris, Dec. 4.—The nomination of a parliamentary committee tor examine the project of holding an exhibition in 1900 is commented upon by the newspapers in very strong terms and an exciting de bate on the matter ip the chamber of deputies is expected. Three members of the committee are hostile to the project, five accept the proposition under strict reservations, two stipulate that the ex position shall be located on the left bank of the Seine and one approves the pro ject unreservedly. The debate in the bureau prior to the nomination of the committee showed that hostility to the exposition was stronger than had been expected. Forcing Armenians to Lie. Constantinople. Dec. 4.—M. Ptrovitch, an Austrian subject, who was chief of the local official tobacco Regie, has been murdered while traveling in the Kharpot district. The officials in Erzeroum, Bar hut, Erlzinhlan and Bittlls continue to force the Armenians, under threats of renewed attacks, to sign addresses thanking the porte for protection during the recent disorders and praising the sul tan's paternal rule. Several notables in the Erzeroum district have been in like manner compelled to telegraph to the pa triarch demanding the recall of the bish op in consequence of the latter's dis patch to the Marquis of Salisbury in dicating the deplorable situation. According to the latest advices from Kalserea, Asia Minor, sixty Armenians are known to have been killed in the massacre there on November 30. iA dispatch from Zeitoun from a Turk sh source says that delegates sent to reat with the Armenians in regard to a surrender were not received by the in surgent leaders. It is stated that, the latter released 400 captured troops, w’tth the exception of nine, who, it Is alleged, were murdered. A bloody and merciless campaign against the Armenians in Zel 'jlouri Is expected. Opinions of the Message. Berlin, Dec. 4.—The Berlin evening newspapers published articles comment ing upon President Cleveland’s message. Referring to the president's allusion to Samoa and the insurance companies, the Tageblatt calls attention to the fact that it has always uttered warning against the adoption of too sharp measures against American insurance companies. Those papers friendly to Germany's pol icy in the colonies express hope that Ger many will seize the occasion to obtain sole control over Samoa. The Vossiche Zeitung discusses the message as Mr. Cleveland's swan song, for it says he has no party behind him. The Eressmige Zeitung says that the Volks party will move in the reichstag at the earliest possible moment the adop tion of a temporary hill to protect Ger mans who desire to form societies from falling a prey to Prussian laws relating to associations by which the socialist so cietii s are closed. The Cologne Gazette as the result of inquiries in official circles reaffirmed that cabinets and diplomats alike are unanimous in insisting on the admission of additional guardships into the Bos phorus. It adds that nothing is known of the rumored British ultimatum. Mr. Bayard’s Speech. London. Dec. 4.—The Hon. Thnmas Bayard. United States ambassador, pre sided at a dinner which was given this evening in aid of a fund of the Locomo tive Engineers’ Benevolent society. Mr. Bayard was enthusiastically received when be arose to address the assem blage. He declared that he could say In all sincerity that lie had never attended n dinner In England with such warm sympathy. There was no party there who had national distinction. He dwelt upon the international dependence of dif ferent callings of society, accentuating (lie indissoluble t.io of humanity the world over and declaring that while par ties and forms of government might be useful, the sense of human brotherhood was stronger and better than all else. Tie would be glad, he said, if he could be able to do anything to create a better feeling among the different classes. If the hand workers could realize the feel ing of the brain workers toward them it would make them the stronger and better. Several members of parliament and a number of representatives of American trade were present. The Reichstag’s President. Berlin, Dec. 4.—Herr Von Buol Beren berg was re-elected president of the reichstag today,-receiving 229 votes out of 293 cast.

Jacksonville Republican: Calhoun Is now raising her own corn and meat and by all means should raise a sufficient amount of wheat to make her own flour. Eufaula Times: There were killed re cently near Abbeville three hogs just 1 year old and from the same litter that weighed 1427 pounds. How is that for a hog county. Oxford Enterpriser A heavy corn crop should mean a heavier hog crop and bigger herds of cattle on 1000 hills. The corn crop should not be wasted or sold for a song because it is large. Florence Times: A reader of the Times writes to us to urge all who come among us to buy farms to avoid the poor lands of the county. He Justly says it will pay to buy the better lands even if they are higher. He also makes the point that an Immigrant buying poor land and making a failure at farming deters oth ers from buying. Florence Times: Mr. Charles Goode of the RogersvIHe neighborhood this year laised four bales of cotton on four acres of land. He also made about 2000 bushels of corn on fifty-live acres. This is the kind of farming that pays. Mr. Goode's way of farming is in striking contrast with the farmer who tvants from two to four acres on which to make a bale. Florence Times: We are informed 'by Mr. Thurston H. Allen that he has just closed a deal involving the sale of 10,000 acres of land In Colbert with Mr. A. D. Hosterman of Springfield. O., whereby the latter Is to colonize with good farm ers the land so sold within one year from the 1st of November. Mr. Hosterman Is one of the best known developers In Ohio and has heretofore located large colonies In Virginia and Georgia. Mr. Allen is much gratified at the consummation of this important deal. Florence Times: Mr. E. A. Von Friese of this city is a farmer who on a limited scalp has demonstrated In a most effec tual manner the productiveness and val ue of our lands. He brought to our of fice Monday a lot of Immense turnips, a portion of the fourth crop on the same land. The first crop was corn, the next two were potatoes and the fourth tur nips. It doesn’t seem to us that the In dustrious farmer in this part of the coun try should have any trouble in getting ahead. Florence Times: Mr. A. C. Willett of Ohio. Whose arrival we noted last week to take possession of the 500 acres of land he has recently purchased in Lauderdale, will go quite largely into the stock rais ing business, in which he has had much experience. He brought with him a pair of heavy draught Norman horses, two roadsters, two yearling cattle and a pair of Duroc Jersey (red) hogs, besides tur keys and chickens of good stock. Mr. Willett is the kind of a citizen we 'like to see come among us. THE HISTORICAL COMMITTEE Of tho Confederate Veterans of Virginia Transacts Much Important Work. Richmond, Va., Dec. 4.—A meeting of the historical committee of the grand camp of Confederate Veterans of Vir ginia was held in the senate chamber this afternoon and much work of Interest to the southern people rvas done.
