A cyclone swept up to tho suburbs of Atlanta Thursday, but then broke in two and went around tho city on eacli side. Tho Atlantiana were badly scared, but not much hurt. Outside the city a numbur of houses were unroofed or other wise damaged. During the eutiro history of tho government down to 1ST thoro were coined only S,0'5,S:tS silver dollars.

There is talk of bringing the matter before the vJtMJ$fi$0$k$ y nuiiiu ruiuur wmn roving aroiinu in city or country, but I summoned suf llcient energy to run down to Richmond the other day for a few hours' sojourn. I found tho grand old capital in a prosperous condition and could not fall to notice tho many improvements of various kinds that have been made since my last visit of some three years ago. Richmond is growing westward and what was a pasture for the neighborhood cows three years ago is now the site of tho handsomest residence portion of the city. What whs then a corn field is now the grounds of a veritable palace. Things have changed in three short years, but as they are for tho better, wo old ex-Virginians look back with a pardonable prido and take pleasure1 in bidding her God-speed. Richmond has since the day of the Hxchange and Ballard Hotel been just a little behind in tiie procession in tho hostelry line. Ford's Hotel, which is probably tho best, is not in correspondence with the city. While the Dodeon, the St. Claire, St. Charles pnd others are good, they aro hardly equal to the wants of the hon ton tourist. This want of a No. 1 hotel Will won bo tilled now, for a grand one is being built and will be known as "Tho Jeirersou." It is in the central portion of town and will cost nearly a million. Capital Square in Richmond is a delightful place and a regular god-send this hot weather. The grounds are lovely and laid out with much ingenuity and precisenesi. ComforUiblu seats under the largo shade trees aro occupied by hundreds of people, who enjoy tho cheap luxury and who spend many idle hours there. There are a number of monuments and other things of Interest in this beautiful park, but as you have been told about them in previous letters, I withhold another mention and description of them. in the capital are many things that lovers of history could spend day after day in looking at.

Nashville, Tenn., March 0, 1SIK5. The Stockton Medicine Co., Nashville, Tenn. Gentlemen It gives me exceeding pleasure to speak of your Antiseptic, as I consider it something wonderful in the way of medicine. My old servant Albert, who is 712 years old, was very sick with Pneumonia, complicated with Heart Trouble and Dropsy. I called in mv fain ily physician and gave turn every attention, but thu doctor finally told me there was no hope and the only thing that could he done was to make him comfort able until the end. At this poiut I decided to give him Stockton's Antiseptic, as it seemed to be performing almost miracles for others. It was given in regular doses every three hours, and tho fever began to decrease from the first dose and a decided improvement was noticed the first day. In three days he was sitting up and in a week he was back nt his work as usual, and regained his strength very fast. I conscientiously believe it saved the old man's life.

The young parson stood the ordeal fully as well as the couple he join-ed together, but the knees of all three smote together pretty lively. Fourteen years ago James Scarlett and Miss Belle Gibbons were married at Mitchell, Ind. The marriage proved a failure and after eight months Jim left his Belle. She procured a divorce and both married, a number of children blessing the union of each. Belle's husband died and Jim got a divorce from hia wife a few months ago.

The Lutheran is the fourth religious denomination in this country, having communicants. Its total be ramp throughout the world is about 50,000,000. The Baptists in the outlying districts of Pulaski still ooserve the ancient and malodorous custom of feet-washing. The Brent congregation went through it last week. The General Christian Missionary Society of the Christian Church will change the place of its annual meeting, now that Chicago has demonstrated hei wickedness by opening the Fair on Sunday. Tho Methodists, instead of withdrawing their exhibit from the World's Fair on account of Sabbathjopening, will cover it with canvas on tho first day of the week, commonly called Sunday.

The applicants for tho vote numbered Ml, but tho total vote cist against local option win only IS!), which fell short of the petitioners 112 votes. The total vole cast for lecal option was -USO. There wan some troublo over the ballot", but the temperance peo pie agreed to use whatever ollicinl ballot was furnished them by the officers at the polls, rather than have any hitch in the election. The ticket prepared and ujed had a device on the word "yes" under tho question an to "whether the bcal option law now in force should become inoperative'" The device consisted of the portrait of a female. Tho tf mperance side had no device above the ord "No," and claimed that there was no provision in tho law for a device upon a question of this sort. The election pasted otr quietly, notwithstanding the intense interest manifested in the reault. A monster meeting was held at tho on Saturday night and brief addresses delivered by Hitlers Mir-her, Frank, Wulden and Kevs.Greerand Tercyand by Capt. Herudon, Letcher Owsley and a colored speaker named Fletcher. It is said that this settles the question or three years and that another vote cannot be taken until the end of that time. Tho drift of the speeches indicated that they now propose to move immediately upon the works of the "Blind Tigers." Contrary to expectations a large colored vote was cast for local option, chiefly through tho influence of Fletcher, tho colored speaker, it is thought.

While Richmond is growing and spreading her wings to tho four corners of Henrico county, the city of the dead Hollywood Cemetery is not lying idle, but is tilling up at a dihtrcesingly rapid rate. There are several cemeteries 'round Richmond, but Hollywood is tho largest and most interesting one to tho stranger. Resides largo mot'.iimeuts to pri vate citizens, there is the Confederate monument, overlooking 12,000 graves of brave men, who lost their lives in tho struggle for the Lost Cause. Tho ashes of Tyler and Monioc lie there, while the body of tho beloved Jefferson Davis Iihs recently been deposited In that sacred earth. A niece and nephew of mine are also buried in Hollywood and it is a sweet hut sad pleasure for me to visit their little graves and think of dear Klla Leo and Claiborne as blight angels in the Father's Kingdom. In my peregrinations aroun I Rich mond I wandered out toward tho penitentiary and was very much surprised to (hid that the buildings of old had proven inadequate and that a large addition had been built. This does not look well for tho Old Dominion and it rather dis tresses mo to think that the mother of statesmen, tho queou of them all Virginia finds itfl necessary to enlarge her prison walls in the hour of peace and prosperity. Virginia has recently built a reformatory for young and less hardened criminals at Laurel, between Richmond and Ashland, and it is pretty well filled with reraons, particularly young ones, are sent there when found guilty of minor offenses ftnd instead of the in carceration they would be com polled to stand in jail or penitentiary, they are given a good deal of liberty and an ef fort is maue to teacu mem na lugu n sense of honor as it is possible. They are permitted to attend church and have a good many other privileges, hut are made to work each day at various trades that are taught. Since beginning this so called commu nication I have had the pleasure of a visit to my old home the place where I llrst saw tho light and whore now lie all that is earthly of a loving and indulgent father nud mother. The old homestead has changed and the change is sadly for the worse. It was my father's great pride to keop the residence, the outbuildings, the fences and in fact everything around the dear old place in good repair, hut 12 long years have elapsed since then and the ravages of time are plainly evident. ''Tho hinges have rusted, The doors have tumbled down, And the roof lets in tho sunshine and rain." Notwithstanding my sorrow that the younger when I lived there happy and content ed in the little world of our own. Our home was not as modern as the structures of the present rapid age, it was far out into tho country, and probably we did not have all the luxuries that people now have, but it was homo to me, and I love the old place and never will I miss an opportunity to visit it. Few pleasures to me are greater and when I turn my back in departure it is with n heavy heart, even if it is not what it used to be. I met a good many old friends and former schoolmates while around tho old place and that within itself was worth ten times tho trouble of the trip. Many of them I had not seen for years and many had grown from school boys to the heads of households, but tho time hadn't nllected us and I dare say our conversations were far more lilting for school bo) s than for "grown up" boys.
