The capital stock of each of the companies is SIOO,BOO. Proprietor Doolittle, of the Augusta Hotel, is the owner of a very line pointer, which ho valued very highly. When Shields' circus left for Macon the dog disap peared also. Several of the circus men had shown groat attention to the dog, and ex hibited their liking for him by caressing and fondling him about the hotel office. Mr. Doolittle telegraphed the Macon Chief of Police describing the dog and telling him of liis suspicions. Later in the day an answer was received saying: “Wc have your dog, but the thief is not with the circus.” The fellow who stole the dog was the performer on the base drum, Ed. Plumber, and lie has been fired from his position. William R. Hchirmer, at Schneider's lower store, at Align ta, was victimized by two sharpens Monday. Two well dressed men came in and made some slight pur chase and threw out a bill in payment.

He was released after he was carried to Grif fin, and returned here yesterday. He de clared his innocence ail the time and offered to prove himself innocent of the charge, but says they refused to let him do so. He secured counsel, engaging Col. P. F. Smith and L. P. Barnes, to bring suit for damages against the parties who arrested and im prisoned him at Puckett’s Station without warrant or any legal authority therefor. The attorneys will hie their bill ut once for s3,ooodamages in the City Court of Newnan. Friday next there will be held in Atlanta a meeting la the interest of forming a racing circuit com; osod of the leading cities of the South. The movement was started some time ago by the Chattanooga Driving Club. The primary intention was to form a circuit of Atlanta, Montgomery, Huntsville, Birmingham and Chattanooga and to have spring and fall races. Some days ago J. 51. Fraer, President of the Chattanooga association, wrote the otlicers of the Gentlemen’s Driving Club of Atlanta upon the sub ject, and Maj. Bmvthe for the club, gave a favorable reply, in which he cited the fact that Atlanta had already arranged for a spring meeting, to begin April 28, and that Atlanta’s fall races must come during the Piodinout Exposition, which will be held from Oct. Bto 27. Since then several letters have passed between Atlanta and Chattanooga and a formal call fora meeting to beheld in Atlanta was l-sued.

Dr. \V. (Bass, of Wesleyan Female Col lege. of Macon, has been greatly annoyed by the extreme rudeness of a number of hoys and young men to the young ladies of the college while on their way to and from church servii-es. On Thursday evening last Dr. liass took them to the Young Men’s Christian Association at the Academy of Music. While on their way home the young Indies were passed by a gang of young men sev.ral times, who spoke to them, and made personal remarks, that, if published, would no doubt, cause more than one of them to leave the city. At the corner of College street and Georgia avenue they congregated, until there were at least 100 present. As the girls passed, they wore crowded out into the road by the roughs, until Dr. Bass had to threaten to use his cane on them. At Mulberry street church a few nights afterward about eighty pupils were present, led by Dr. Bass. When they Itegmi to leave another crowd was found in the church, so obstructing the doorway that there was but three feet available. The boldness of these roughs is something remarkable. It was impossible for the escort to guard the entire line at onoo, anil the boys would watch their opportunity to sfieak to the ladies as they jmssed. FLORIDA. Key West is to be lighted by electri city. A now railroad station is to be built at Ijaeoochie. fit. James seems to be a favorite place for tarpon fishing.

A match game of base ball was plaved at Fernandina Monday afternoon lietween the New York* and Eernandinas, which result ed in a score of 25 for the New York Sand 6 for the Fernandinas. The game was wit nessed by a large crowd. The business of the Oviedo post office has increased to such an extent that the Post master was notified last week by the de partment that his present bond was insuffi cient security, and another bond for a much larger sum had to be drawn up. Lacoochio is anew place, but is certain to ha an important one.

It was a curious sight to see them moving off, on platform cars, one day in the early part of last, week, and suggests the idea that a manufactory might b> readily established at Orlando for ready-made houses. About six weeks since J. R. Wise, of Oak land, shipped twelve crates of fine cabbage to a firm of commission merchants at Phila delphia. The returns are just in—or rather they are not in. On tiie whole twelve crates hut #2 40 was reported as due to Mr. Wise (Wise & McDonough), and at a tune when cabbage was quoted at from $3 to $4 per crate. J. B. Letters, of Punta Gorda, last w - eek related a wonderful tale of an extraordinary big catch of fish by Blocksom & Lewis, of that place. He said that after a stiff south wind, nets were staked at Punta Gorda at the mouth of several creeks, and when the wind chaiigod, blowing the water out of these creeks, they captured over 5,000 mul let and several thousand pounds of bottom fish. At Pensacola Sunday, the doad body of Peter Hansen, a Danish sailor, was found on the rocks near the end of Sullivan’s wharf. Hansen was last seen eight days ago. He was drinking at the time, and it is supposed that he fell while crossing from his vessel to the wharf, and having been drunk, was drow - ned. The remains were given burial by the authorities. It is said that one of the objects that has attracted as much attention as anything else are the words suspended in plain sight at the Sub-Tropical: “Oysters growing on trees, Charlotte Harbor, Fla.” While under the sign hangs a large cluster of “coon” oysters clinging to a mangrove limb. Its a John Cross scheme and has already adver tised Charlotte Harbor more than the sale of 10,000 acres of land would have done. J. Hopkins Smith, of Now York, one of the passengers on the ill fated train of Sat urday, arrived at St. Augustine on Sunday from Jacksonville, accompanied by his wife. Mr. Smith’s left leg was fearfully crushed, and he was also wounded about the head and on one Land. He was taken to the train on a cot, and on his arrival at St. Au gustine was met by Dr. F. F. Smith and his friend, Mr. John G. IlecKsher, who saw him safely to the Casa Monica, where ho will re main until he is well. Mr. Smith bears his sufferings with wonderful fortitude, and when at the wreck, notwithstanding his se vere injuries, endeavored to render assist ance to others. Brooksville News: Messrs. Marshall, Saxon and McGuire blew up the hounds Thursday morning and started for a drive. They went out about two miles and jumped two fine bucks. A short run brought the game near Mr. McGuire, who wounded the smaller buck and shot down the big one. The wounded deer turned round the hill where Tom Smith, xvho had joined the party, bagged th game. George says he don’t care who kills ’em so he can get a chance to run them on his fine horse. Ho does love to see them spread themselves. The buck brought in was a magnificent ani mal and weighed about 100 pounds, and had just shod his horns. At Fernandina four sailors signed arti cles of agreement for six months’ service on the steamship G. W. Jones and after ward deserted, but were arrested in Bruns wick and returned to the steamer, where they were confined and shackled together. Securing a file they released themselves, and when the door of their room was opened Wednesday morning by the mate the four made a rush for liberty, several jumping overboard. The mate fired a shot to intimi date them and finally secured three of them, but not without a struggle in which one man was severely beaten. The fourth man succeeded in getting ashore and ran for the woods. He has not been captured. The other morning, while the Mayor of Koy West and a number of persons were in the Council room there, a strange commo tion was heard, which startled the crowd and sent them running into the street. A horse, Charlie, which is said to he very vicious, was tied to the rails of the steps lending to the tower. The signal halyards leading from the flag-staff were also tied to the rails. Charlie made a splurge, pulling down the whole staircase and breaking the flag-pole, which came tumbling down, mak ing such a noise that, those inside thought the whole tower was tumbling over, and consequently rushed out, but found that it was only the flag-staff instead of the tower. Joseß. Estrada, editor of the Cuban daily Ua Propaganda, who was shot in the head at Key West last Wednesday while in a quarrel with Mr. Laborde, died from the results of his wound Friday morning. Es trada bore the grade of Colonel of the Cuban army and passed the whole insurrection fighting in Cuba against the Spaniards. He had been wounded several times which had caused him to loose the use of liis left leg. Edwardo Isrborde who shot Estrada has held'important positions with the Key West Btreet Car Company. The general opinion is that lie will bo acquitted by the courts, as there is no doubt whatever'that the shoot ing was done in self-defense, as Estrada struck Laborde with a chair while the latter was in his place of business. Laborde is in jail. John Ilecksher arrived at St. Augustine Saturday night from Charlotte Harbor, where he had been spending some time or Pierre Lori Hard's yacht Hevn. Mr. Ilecksher is now famous as having landed the largest tarpon by thirty-eight pounds ever caught with the rod and reel. The monster silver king was caught by the fortunate fisherman near Pi ie Island, after an exciting contest which lasted exactly forty-two minutes. Anv one who has ever fished for tarpon and understands the skill it requires to land one of these gamey monsters (a single false move being fatal) can imagine the anxiety of tlios exciting forty-two minutes. When the fish was safely laude 1 and put upon the scales it tipped the beam at 184 pounds. Mr. Ilecksher is having the fish carefully prepared by an expert ami will have it mounted on background of Florida woods. He w ill send it to the Smithsonian Institute, where it will be placed on exhibition. The double funeral of Mrs. W. A. Shaw aiul her daughter, Mamie, victims of Saturday's fatal wreck nt Blackshenr, took plaixt Monday noon at Bt. Paul’s Methodist Episcopal Church, Jacksonville. Rev. Mr. Kennedy officiating.

Ihe follow ing gentlemen were the ra!l-baarcr* for Mrs. Shaw: T. 11. Livingston, George Cecil, J. E. I Cartridge, R. B. Archibald, J. Huff, W. G. Garrett. The graduating class of the Duval High School, consisting of F. A. Pasco, Mr. A. Weller, Mr. Kinsley, McCallum and Arthur Vanso acted as pall bearers for Mamie. The services were most impressive and there was hardly a dry eye in the vast throng present. The Knights of Honor and the American Legion of Honor attended. The flags on the vessels in the harbor were all half-masted as a mark of sympathy for Capt. Shaw.

The Old Palmetto Treo. Prom the Brunswick (Ga.) Journal. The palmetto is not only a delighful vetre table which can tie used in all respects like cabbage and cauliflower, but it is very use ful in many respects. From its leaves the nicest hats and the he*t tans are made. But the greatert use to which palmetto is put is in toe shape of piling in constructing docks. Pine and other woods are attacked by worms in a few years, when brought in contact with salt water, and for this reason the frequent renewals are very expensive. Palmetto, on the other hand, is not attacked in this way and will last for years. The palmetto p ayed a very important part in the revolutionary history of this country. When the British fleet made an attack upon Charleston, it was confronted by flimsy looking wooden fortifications that seemed to offer hut feeble resistance. Every shot that was tired into them, however, sunk into the soft, spongy wood of the palmetto without damaging the inmates in the slight est. After keeping up the harmless bom bardment for some days the attack was abandoned. One Real Leap Year Affair. Woodbury (Ga.) Cor. Griffin Neu s. We have often heard of young men steal ing their Sweethearts and running away to get married, but never before the other day have we heard of a young lady stealing a young man and running away to get mar ried. A young lady from North Georgia has been spending some time with friends about five miles from here in tbe|Jeountry, and upon getting ready to go home she eloped with one of our most prosperous ybuug farmers. The man’s father hearing whnt had been done became enraged and forbade them ever going to his house again. The young couple not being satisfied to live near took the cars here for the Lone Btar Btate, where they will made their homo in the future. We don’t blame tile young lady at all, because they have a showing only once in every four years, and think they ought to make good use of that time. A Tramp's Substantial Bustle. From the Marietta (Ga.) Journal. A tramp called at a residence the other day begging for “something to eat.” His clothes were very much the worse for wear, while soap amt water had been economically used in preparing his toilet. The lady of the house fixed him up a lunch in a paper and handed it to him at the door. He re paired to a grassy seat in the yard and un folded a bundle which he had with him, and stowed away in said bundle was ava riety of victuals. He assorted the viands and began to store them away in the back lining of his coat, biscuit, potatoes, cake, etc., until it looked as if he had oil a bustle. Ho had prepared himself for a long tramp, and our citizens had furnished the rations. MEDICAL. When You Need An Alterative Medicine, don’t forget that everything depends on the kind used. Ask for Ayer’s Sarsaparilla and take no other. For over forty years this preparation has had the endorsement of leading physicians and druggists, and it has achieved a success unparalleled in the history of proprietary medicines. “For a rasli, from which I had suf fered some months, my father, au M. D., recommended Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It effected a cure. I am still taking this medicine, as I find it to he a most pow erful blood-purifier.’’ —J. E. Cocke, Denton, Texas. “C. H.
