GEORGIA AND FLORIDA. NEWS OF THE TWO STATES TOLD IN PARAGRAPHS. The Trial of I. J. Davis for Killing Miller to Begin in Montgomery County Superior Court this Week— Atlanta Real Estate not Depreciated by Prohibition. GEORGIA. The Brunswick Grist mill has commenced grinding. Subscription bonks have been opened by the Rome Water Works Company. Rev. McN. McKay has resigned the pas torate of the Presbyterian church of Griffin. The Dublin Gazette has just received a new power press to supplant its old-time press. Sam Jones ami Reuben Arnold "'ill hold a joint discussion on the prohibition ques tion at Atlanta soon. Johnston. Liberty county, failed to get incorporated as the matter waa started too late, out it is nevertheless on a boom. Percy Blount, of Savannah, has pur chased a place near Grovetown, and will improve it in the near future and make it his home. Dr. T. T. Williams, for a long time the only dentist of Dublin, died last Saturday morning of consumption at his father’s home in Montgomery county. He leaves a wife and several children. The Ebenezer Baptist Association held its annual meeting with Blue Water church, six miles below Dublin, last week. The an nual proceedings were gone through with, and the old oft leers elected, namely: E. J. Coats, moderator; W. S. Rauisay, clerk; and Mercer Haynes, treasurer.

The interior finish is going for ward, mantels being put on, shortly the car pets will lx: laid, and the furniture will arrive and lie placed. The manager will be S. E. Crittenden, late manager of the Hygeia Hotel at Old Point Comfort. Hinesville Gazettr: Winfield W. Geiger, of Bryan, is justly ranked among our lead ing farmers. He lias harvested owr' 850 bushels of coni from fifty aci-es. This is not equal to the Western prairie country, where corn is more plentiful than wood, and is sometimes used as a substitute for coal, but an average of seventeen bushels to the acre will do very well for the fiat woods of Brvau. It is needless to add that Mr. Geiger has fat horses, fat hogs and fat chickens. Montgomery Superior Court is in session this week. It is probable that the triai of I. J. Davis, for the murder of Miller, will come off at this term of the court. Davis is at present confined c*v safe-keeping in the jail at Macon. Over 100 w itnesses are sule poenaed in this ease, and it will consume considerable time to examine them. There is also a case for rape pending that will probably be heard at this term, and the two cases together bid fair to bankrupt the broad state of Montgomery. At Atlanta the Capital City Bank has sold to Eiseman Bros, the store now occu pied by that firm for $35,000. The bank bought the property for $23,000 and has added $4,000 in improvements. The other property held by the bank has increased in about the same proportions. J. W. Harle has bought $llO,OOO worth of stock of the bank. This is the ties: co-operative hank started in Atlanta, anil its success is signifi cant It has Atlanta real estate as a basis of investment, and that beats gold. A large meeting of colored citizens of Augusta was held Tuesday night, to hear from Philip Joseph, the Director General of the National Exposition of the Colored Raoe, to be held in Atlanta ill Novemlier, 1888. It was unanimously di-cided that the colored people of Augusta should make an exhibit. The object of the exposition is to show r the progress of the raoe, both intel lectually and mechanically in the past twenty-five years. They expect to raise $30,000 in shares of $5 each. It will lie the biggest show ever gotten up by colored people of this country. A crazy negro woman employed a con tractor in Augusta to build her a $OlO dwelling on leased land out in the southern portion of the city. After the building was completed the contractor called upon the woman for his money, when much to his surprise she informed him that she had no money. The contractor was so jierplexed t hat he did not know wha to do, but he decided to hold the keys anil not give them up, but sold the. house on a monthly pay ment plan to the owner of the lot. Con tractors are generally very shrew'd men, but this time one of the fraternity was bad ly downed. An Augusta ladv. Mrs|N. K.

He relies upon the laws of nature for good health, and he expects to live to be 100 years old. Augusta Chronicle: The capital of Geor gia in 1778 wav the town of Augusta. One hundred years have passed and the city is not listed among the dead towns of Georgia, but is foremost in the ranks of the manu facturing cities of tlie United State*,, the leading cotton market of the South, and fast becoming the great commercial mart and distributing point of the South. In 1780 Savannah was beeeiged, and the cupital was removed to Augusta. Iu 1787 ail of ;tbe original State* save Rhode Island met and adopted the constitu tion of the United States. At the town of Augusta on Jan 3, 1788, the constitution of the United States was adopted on behalf of Georgia by a convention of delegates from different parte of the State. In 1780 ail the delegates selected to the Georgia Legisla ture were from Richmond county. The Capitol then stood where U. Gray & Co.’s dry goods establishment now stands, and it was not until 1873 that the walls of the old Capitol wore torn down to permit of the improvement of the build ing now occupied by Messrs. C. Gray & Cos. There still remains a stone in the rear of the building, oil Mclntosh street, which marks the site of the old Capitol. A num ber of Augusta’s leading merchants and citizens propose to celebrate during 1888 the centennial of tin- signing of the constitution by Georgia and the manufacturing city of the Boutli is to have then, besides n grand July State fair or exposition, a trade-review anil b grand military eneamgnient. The idea is to make this one of the most memorablo oc casions, not only in the history of the State, but the South. This- lieing the largest man ufacturing city in the South, it is the proper place to show the changes that the past cen tury has made, mid no better place could lie selected. The gentlemen who have this great project in hand have not decided exactly whut time they will have the pro posed big celebration. FLORIDA, St. Augustine is to have the telephone service. The fish famine at Pensacola has been broken. A number of the orange growers at Oviedo are beginning to ship their fruit. Lumber is still iu grout demand at St. Augustine, and the saw mills are kept busy Gorge AN". Kintiie has been appointed postmaster at Natural Bridge, \V alton county. The new Baptist church at Oviedo was completed last Monday, and will be dodi i rated next- Sunday, Oct. 30. The Southern Express Comimuy will for ward supplies or money to yellow fever suf ferer-at I'ampa free of charge. At Orlando building operations are about to take a lx> an again. Several new houses arc talked of and contemplated. Ground was broken at Sanford Tuesday for the brick building of Walter Tomlinson, corner First street and Myrtle avenue. Floridians have been granted patents as follows: George S. Lusk, Pomona, door cheek; Charles K. Avery, Jacksonville, bot tling gayogeue. The Methodist people of Oviedo are re pairing their church. They are going to aid a belfrv to it, which will lie quite an improvement nnd mako it a nice looking building. At St. Augustine, the Citizens' Commit tee met Tuesday, and rescinded u former resolution to hold word meetings, nnd agreed to hold a citizens’ mass convention on Friday evening. At Fruitland Park, workmen are putting in sash ami doors to the new Methodist church and plastering will soon commence. The church has cost #1,700 just as it is. When it is finished it will be the finest church in Lake county. John T. Rismukes, Treasurer of the Citi zens’ Kelief Fund of St. Augustine, sent the Mayor of Tampa .*4 1 60, being u balance unexpended from the Charleston relief fund of Inst year. The relief committee is at work, and have raised $lOO additional. During the past few months bet wren $28,001) and $.10,000 have been (>aid out in Alachua county lor rock, which is lining hauled to Jacksonville, and from there down to the St. John's bar, where it is being used in the construction of the jetties. The ’points fioin which the most rock is being shipjied arc Archer and Orion. A shooting affray took place near Klog gett’s mills, at St. Augustine, Tuesday, lie tween two negroes, named Burns and Ran dall, in which the latter was shot through the arm or hand. The difficulty arose from trouble lietween the wives of these men, and finally the sterner sex interfered and in dulged in the feminine amusement with the above result. The larged orange ever produced in Florida has been plucked from Gardner S. Hardee's grove in Brevard county. The variety is known as the London Navel. The orange was 15>£ inches in circumference, and weighed exactly two pounds and two ounces. This specimen was not a grape fruit, or pome, or any other overgrown variety of the citrus family aside from the orange, but was a bona fide orange in every resjiect. Excitement was caused at Orlando Mon day among the merchants, real estate agents and dealers of every kind bv the Sheriff ap pearing with writs for failure to procure licenses. The warrants were issued on the information of the Collector of Revenue, and#tre made returnable to the November term of the Criminal Court. There is said to be aliout 100 writs already issued for per sons doing business in the county, and there will be many more unless the license tax is paid. A tall, lank Floridian, with a Springfield musket on his shoulder, has walked to Mobile from near Pensacola, looking for a man named Williams, who, he claims, stole his wife, four children and all his money and put out for Alabama. Ho located him on a farm between Healing Springs and Bladen Springs, ami purchasing an extra supply of ammunition and bread he started on nis way there on foot. The distance from Mobile to the farm where Williams is said to be is about 100 miles. Four burly negroes walked into the store of Dusenberry & Ellis, of Lake Como, Mon day, and seemed to want nothing more than to find a place in which to loiter. Mr. Dusenborry was alone at the time and hav ing business to attend to went to his office, near the rear of the store, and commenced to write. The idea occurred to him that the negroes might want something else, so lie slouched his hat over his eyes, and with one eye on his visitors and the other on his work lie proceeded. In a moment more one of the colored brothers reached for a !x>x of cigars and donated an ample supply to him self. Soon after Mr. Dusenberry was called by one of them and wanted sc. worth of crackers. After waiting on him he walked leisurely to his bad: room, took two cartrid ges with him and came out with his trusty gun in his hand. As he walked toward the negroes he placed the cartridges in the gun and ordered them out of the store; they stepped out. when he said to the man he saw stealing, “now take those cigars out of your pocket and leave here as fast as your feet will carry you, or I’ll (ill you full of shot.” The man addressed made a spasmodic lunge into liis pocket with one hand and dejxisited the weeds on a chair and departed iu hot haste without a word of argument. They were easily convinced, and believed in otiey ing orders. Lake Worth has* just been startled by the news of the horrible death of James E. Hamilton, one of the most worthy young citizens. He was the mail carrier on the route between Lake Worth and Miami, and was devoured by sharks while crossing Hillsborough Inlet. Mr. Hamilton was an athletic young man, and carried tire light mail betweeu the two places on bis back, walking the ocean beach the greater part of the entire distance, which is over seventy live miles. The dread of the mail carrier or visitor to Miami are the Hillsborough and New River Inlets, which have to be crossed by small boat-s. Here the dark waters of the everglades empty into the ocean with tremendous force in the rainy season, and if the ocean is rough, the meeting of heavy seas against the out-pouring current, renders crossing difficult and dangerous. Sharks abound in these inlets. Mr. Hamilton set out with the mail on Tuesday morning from Orange Grove House of Refuge, and was due at the New River station, twenty live miles distant, in the afternoon, but never arrived. The mail and his clothing were found at Hillsborough inlet on a tree to which his boat for crossing was generally tied, but the skiff was found on the other side, where it had been taken and left by a tramp, who had crossed some dßys lretore.l Mr. Hamilton doubtless attempted to swim aero** the inlet for his boat, and met his death in the attempt. No remains have been east up by the sea, and it is but too evident that ho was eaten by the monsters which infest the place. Forgot His Intended’s Name. From the Albany (Ga.) News and Advertiser. A country darkey applied at the Ordina ry’s office in this city, one day this week, for a marriage license. Mr. 8. J. Jones, who was acting for Ordinary Odom, procured a blank, and prejiared to issue the necessary pajier. When the darkey was called upoii to furnish the name of his fair inamorata he looked puzzled, and then a look of con sternation spread over liis ebony-huod coun tenance us he lugubriously said: “Fore God, Boss, I’se done forgot dat gal’s name, ami she jess tole me dis morning.” The darkey hastened off and soon returned with the name of liis intended spouse, and left rejoicing with the marriage license. For Animals. Mange, Distemper, Diarrhoea and Worms in dogs quickly cured. Scratches, Sores, Galls, Bruises, Cuts or Woutids of any kind, quickly ami permanently healed by wash ing with the Fluid.

From the Florirht Farmer and Fruit firoo'er. When the massacre on the Caloosahatchie ended the truce which had for a short time suspended operations against the Semiuoles, the war open with renewed activity. The naval force on the coast consisted of the top sail schooners Flirt, Wave and Otsego, com manded resjiect,ively by Lieut. Corn. J T. M>'l,aughliii, Lieut. John Rodgers, (late Admiral), Passed Midshipman Edmund Shubrich. The army force consisted of the Third Artillery, Sixth Infantry, Second Dragoons and a jmrt of the Seventh In fantry. The Eight Infantry came later, under command of Col. Worth, who soon after was promoted, and, relieving Gen. Zachary Taylor, pushed active operations until the war was practically ended. Col. Harney was raging mad when he reached Biscayne Hey. swearing the bitter est vengeance on the murderers of his brave men. it was murder in its broadest sense, for the men fell not as soldiers in battle, but were surprised iu bed, shot down, slain and scalped, with no chance for resistance. On the island which forms Cajie Florida, there were several companies of the Third Artillery, and two companies of the Second Dragoons. Harney, us Lieutenant-Colonel, ranked all the officers at the post, and the naval men having a large number of ex press canoes which had been made expressly for their use in following the Indians up the rivers, lagoons and bays along the coast, made this easy of accomplish ment. Calling for volunteers, the brave Harney soon had 200 picked men, sailors and sol diers, ready for a start. I forget just now the names of ail the officers that went along. 1 am almost sure that Gen. T. W. Hhermau (since dead) was one, for he was at the post as Lieutenant Commanding. I know the late Gen. Ord, was there, also Lieut. Rod ney, of Delaware, a gallant dragoon, and Capt. Fulton, of the same regiment. Fran cis Kee Murray, John Contee and Lieut. Rodgers, were in the naval contingent. Taking with them a coil of smalt, strong rope they got off just before dark, provis ioned for ten days, armed and munitioned for a week’s steady fighting, if it came to that. There were thirty boats and canoes, aver aging about seven men in each. They jiaddled as silently as possible up to old Fort Dallas, at the mouth of Miami river, and entering it, pushed silently and rapidly into the Everglades. The strictest orders were given not to fire a gun, nor even give ail order in a loud tone. An experienced guide was in the first canoe, and the others fol lowed iu a lino as close as one could be kept to another. It took nearly all night to pass up the shallow, sinuous stream and get into the “glades.” Then, fearing to be discov ered, they lay all day close on a little island, watching through their glasses for smoke or signs of occupation on the islands in sight. On one of the largest of these islands they saw evident signs of occupation, but none of alarm to show that their presence had been discovered. They knew they were near the haunts of “Sam Jones,” or Ar piaka, tne oldest chief in the Seminole na tion, and of Chikaka, the giant Fishing Chief, who was supposed to have been at the head of the party that committed the mas sacre they were now to avenge. All day, resting and sleeping as much as they could, they lav by, eating their cooked provisions, waning" for night to cover their movements. The night came, dark and cloudv enough to cover their approach to the island. Every man was on the alert, itrms were inspected, orders given to keep in line until close to the island, when certain of the boats were to lay off around it to cut off escape, while three lauding jrarties were to advance and surprise the enemy, not a shot to be fired until they were discovered by the Indians. “Then,” said Hajpey with a bitter oath, “go in for work. Kill or cap tm'e all you see, young and old, he or she. Spare them only as they spared my poor boys over on the Caloosahatchie.” On, slowly and steadily, the muffled pad dies rising with measured cadence, they pushed through the shallow water and stiff saw grass. It was not more than six or seven miles, apparently, they had to go, but they were until near midnight before getting'into position for act ion, close up to the covered island. Harney and his dra goons, with carbiues, took the centre; the artillery men, with mu-diets, the right; the navy men, the left armed with United States Yager rifles. Forward, was the com mand passed in whispers from officers to men. On—and soon a scent of smoke greet ed them. Still onward and a chorus of yelping curs greeted them. “Forward double quick.” In a few seconds they burst into their vil lage of palm-thatched'houses, with smould ering fires around among them, and a hor rible yell and a scattering lire from the startled red skins greeted them as they rush ed in, firing as they went. The surprise was complete. Fifteen or twenty shots from the Indians, a full volley from the whites, and all who were not down, dead or wounded, fell to the earth in submission, except four or five who lied off in the darkness ninong the trees and shrubbery. Among these was the gigantic Chikaka,dropping bis rifle from a brokon arm as he ran. A brave private in the Second Dragoons —his name was Hall, and he was made a Sergeant soon after —saw Chikaka as he ran, and followed, carbine in hand. He never lost sight ef the chief, but kept on until he could get a sure shot. Wounded and bleed mg, Chikaka found he could not escape. He halted, threw up his left uninjured hand, and cried out in his broken English. “No shoot! Me good Indian—heap good! No Shoot!” “Take that for Caloosahatchie;” shouted Hall, as ho sent a ball through the chief’s heart. Ail instant later lie tore the scalp from Chikaka's head, and then ran hack to the village to present it to Col. Harney. The Colonel was standing by some wounded officers and men of his com mand, looking sternly at the group of terri fied prisoners and a small pile of dead and dying Indians. “Bring that coil of rojre from my boat!” he shouted to one of tne men, “aud be -quick about it. We will have a hanging bee before the sun ris#s.” And he <lid. I acknowledge my indebtedness to my scrap Ixrok for some of the minute particu lars, for fifty years will make many a break in memory’s thread. Hkstkh Periunk Walker. Femandina, Fla., Oct. 1, 1887. Important Trial at Winter Park. From the Orlando (Fla.) Record. The pupils of Rollins College, at Winter Park, have adopted among themselves a high standard of morality (very commend able), nnd for any infraction of the rules u court is organized, a trial had, und if guilty, the culprit!* punished. Yesterday atrial was had at Winter Park in which two young lady pupils from Orlando figured on the south side of “vs.” it appeal's that the young ladies neglected to take with them their railroad tickets, and had to pass on the tickets of others. That was regarded as a flagrant violation. A court was organized during the recess, to prosecuting attorneys were appointed, and two volunteered for tlie defense, after which the accused were formally arraigned for cheating and swind ling the South Floridy Railroad Company, and they pleaded “not Guilty." The trial proceeded, and during the ex amination of witnesses much bright repartee was indulged in. After the evidence had closed, ana the young “sprouts” of the law had prepared for the occasion, the court summed up the facts and reluctantly came to the conclusion that the “fair ones” were guilty as cluu'ged in the information, whereupon one of the attorneys tor the de fence very gallantly offered to beat- the punishment, and at once demanded the right of “wager of battle,” who after a round or two with prosecuting Attorney Way was knocked out of the ring. Thus ended the trial, and the young ladies returned to their studies wiser and better girls, and fully con vinced that justice is blind, making no distinction and knowing no sex.

Col. J. B. Towers, the principal keeper of the penitentiary, is a quiet, dignified gentle man, hut his acquaintances know that he is as firm as a rock when aroused. An incident occurred at the car-shed Thursday evening v. hicli stirred the Colo nel’s indignation, and will probably result in the trial of a policeman before the com missioners. A little after 1 o’clock. Col. Towers start ed to outer the depot to take the 1 :40 train for Marietta. He went into a wide open entrance near the baggage room, and was making his way into the depot. Col. Towers says that four or five jiersons —onoof them a lady—passed in ahead of him. The policeman shook hands with those jieople and let them pass. Col. Towers had gotten little past the policeman when he jerked him back and said: “You can’t pass here.” "I see others going in,” said the Colo nel. “Well, you can’t go in.” and with this the policeman jerked Col. Towers back again and rattled his ajub. Col. Towers threw up bis walking-stick, a good stout one, and said: “Keep your bands off me, sir. If you touch nit; again I will break your head." In spite of bis 00 years, Col. Towers, with an uplifted stick, is not a pleasant man to tackle. Ho is very muscular, and when enraged his action is quick and vigor ous. The policeman said to him • “If you were not an old man I would show you my authority.” “Just consider me 25, if you want to show your authority that way," said Col. Towers. There the matter ended, and Col. Towers went to another gate, where he was admit ted without difficult)-. He says lie saw other people go in after he was refused admission, and that no police man had a right to exclude him when he had a ticket. He sars that he will find out the name of that policeman if it takes six months, and he will report him to the com missioners. A Brave Soldier. From the Albany (Go.) Nete* and Advertiser. Old man Jacob Davis, the well known peddler of this section, was one of the bravest of the many dauntless soldiers wiio wore the gray. His comrades in arms love him for the dangers that he braved so heroically, and many times lias the writer heal'd of deeds of valor done by the old man when the battle raged hottest. He was a member of Company B, Second Georgia, under Ranse Wright, and went with nis command into the historic battle of the Wilderness. In that battle he dis tinguished himself by the capture of a Union battle flag bearing the device: “God Save the Union.” His com puny led a charge on the Yankee battery, and he was the first to mount the breastworks, just when the standard bearer hold aloft his colors as a rallying point for his demoralized comrades. Uncle Jacob went for him and demanded the surrender of the colors, but was met with a refusal. With fixed bayonet he pre pared to transfix the brave Union soldier, aud in the rencounter worsted him aud just as he was about to plunge the bayonet into the color bearer’s prostrate form, the latter gave the Masonic sigu of distress. Uncle Jacob was not a Mason, but a Confed erate, recognizing the sign of distress, rushed up and interposed himself between them, and thus saved the life of the Union soldier. Uncle Jacob, after assisting in spiking the guns of the enemy’s battery, bore the colors he had captured off in triumph and delivered them at Confederate headquar ters. Mr. Davis goes to Macon this morning to be with the old veterans in the, possibly, last review of the soldiers of the “Lost Cause” by the grand old chieftain, Jefferson Davis. On sunny shores of tropic isles, Where all the year bright verdure smiles, Constant fragrance fills the air; Yet will SOZODONT compare With those odors of the South, While it cleanses teeth aud mouth.
