A Cool Sunday and Everybody En joyed It—The Day at Tybee. Eighty-five degrees was the highest that mercury went in the shade yesterday. The weather was delightful, and everybody enjoyed it. Savannah was the coolest place in the southern cotton belt district. Bainbridge, which was the coolest spot during the hot spell last week, is now got ting a taste of what Savannah had then. Mercury went up to 97° there yesterday. Live Oak reported 97‘, Sa i'liville ’>”, and .Milieu 90’. The average highest temperature for the nine stations in tile district, was 90°. The hot wave is now in the southwest. The Mo bile and Now Orleans district,- last night re ported 98% and Gal vest n and Little Hock 90". At 8 o’clock when mureury had dropped to 70°, Vicksburg and New Or leans reported Hi", and Shrievep irt and Fort Smith DO*. Rio Grande, Tex., also reported 90". Savannah’s temperature last night was the same as that of New York and Philadelphia. The indica tions for to-day for South Carolina, Geor gia and eastern and western Florida, are warmer weather, local rains, followed to night by stationary temperature. Tlie weather so far this month has been very comfortable compared with the weather in July last year, but it has been considerably warmer than forsoveral years previous. The maximum last year was 102” on July 18. The year before that 92‘ was the highest. In 1885 it was 95", arid in 1884 it was 90”. A year ago yesterday Savannah was swel tering under a temperature of 90", and tho average temperature in tlie cotton belt dis trict was 100*. A year ago yesterday was the first Sun day after the opening of the Ty bee railroad. The railroad carried on that day 1,000 pas sengers. Yesterday it carried nearly three times that number. The Augusta through train to Tybco brought down 500 Augustans, and the Savannah, Florida and Western railway brought in several carloads from Waycross, Val dosta, Thomasvillo and other points south. Tig) Tybee trains were crowded. At tho beach tho hotels were thronged, and it was difficult to secure accommodations. All of the suburban resorts were well pntronlzed, and the incoming trains last night on all the suburban lines wore crowded. TRIED TO GIVE HEB BABY AWAY. A Young Woman Offers Her Child to Anybody Who Would Take It. A rather prett y young woman, apparently not over 22 or 23 years of age, dressed iu deep mourning, wulked into tho Central railroad depot last night, just lief ore the western bound night express went out, car rying in her arms a young child, which she offered to anybody who would t ike it. Oust before tho train pulled out she went to the stewardess, and begged her to take tho little one and give it tosome liody. She said that she could not carry it back to her home. She told the stewardess that she lived ms the country, that her hus band is dead ana t hat she had no means of supporting the child. As she told her story the tears ran down her c heeks and were lost in the silken hair of the little girl baby that she held close in her arms. “It’s my little girl,” she said, “but I’m not able to take care of her. ” The woman said that she came to the city on the 5 o’clock train for the purpose of getting rid of the child. She went to tho hospitals but they would not take tlie balio. No one would have it. She said that she lived at Midvillo with her mother, who has a house full of little children, and she was driven by poverty to tho steps she took. She wa- overcome with grief, and sobted violently when she found that she would bo unable to dispose of the child. The stewardess assisted her on board the train and she left, carrying back the little one that she hud trie l to give away to who ever wouid take it. FAST TRAINS TO BE PUT ON. The Central's Proposed Connections at Birmingham. The officials of the Central rnilroad of Georgia, it is understood are, arranging to put on a fast express train between Bir mingham and Savannah within the next two months. The regular local passenger train now in service la-tween Birmingham and Columbus will also be continued. A fast schedule will be arranged so as to con nect with tne Kansas City, Memphis and Birmingham railroad. The latter road will also double its train service. The regular local passen ger train .between Birminnhain and Mem phis w ill be retained, and in addition to this a through limited express will be put on between Birmingham and Kansas Citv. The Kansas City f.i-t tram will run a through sleejier from Kansas City to Savan nah, connecting with tlie Central at Bir mingham. A through chair car will also be put on bet we-n Kansas City and Bir mingham. Tho train will be un usually fast. Tlie schedule between Birmingham ami Kansas ( ltv will be thirty-two hours and between Birmingham and Savannaii sixteen hours, which will make the time between Kansas City aud Savannah only forty-eight hours. Such a schedule as tills, with a through fist train service over these two roads, would be a grout benefit to the traveling public. The lilies would then got a largo share of through travel to the west, as well as to tho north and east. This would also is- a popular route between Kansas City and New York by wav of Savannah aud the Ocean steam ship line. - NOTES ALONG THE WHARVES, Happenings on the River and Among the Shipping.

The Ways of tho Wicked When They Are Caught. Yesterday, although Sunday, was not an off day at police headquartel's. The first arrest was made at 1 o’clock. Morris Gathers, a hurley “black" with a swollen lip and red eyes, staggered into the office, followed by an officer who informed the sergeant on duty that Morris was drunk and had been creating considerable disturbance at South Broad and Price streets. He was entered for disorderly conduct and drunkenness. T e sergeant bail not more than willed Ills pen when Piter Williams was marched in by the Smith ville patrol. The officer turned over a shining weapon that was found in Wil liams’ pocket when he was arrested. He was implicated in a shooting and a general row at Smithvillo. The other parties en gaged in tlie fracas made their escape. Williams was entered for carrying con cealed weapons. There was a lull after that and the officer on duty glanced at the papers, feeling that ids morning’s work was over. Tho Sunbath had dawned ad the sinful world was bound to respect it. It was not so, though. At least not in (’digress street lane and Barn ard street, where Lucinda Williams, Eliza beth Hi ley and Maggie Middleton lived. They were three e ,lored women. They oc cupied the same room Saturday night and tiiu Wilburns and Hiley women awoke minus tho few dollars that they had when they went to sleep). They suspected their companion of taking the money, but did not accuse her of the theft until they had sought a fortune teller, who confirmed their suspicion. They then re turned to where the suspected thief was, ami, informing her of what had transpired, demanded the money. The woman protest ed, and both of them seized tier and a battle ensued. The woman suspected of the theft got out of the clutches of the other two and lied. They followed her, screaming police, murder and theft. The neighborhood for several blocks was aroused. Policeman Mock swept down upon the participants just as the fracus had reached its height, mid marched them off to the barracks. They were entered on thq docket for disor derly conduct. “Surely the wicked know no law,” re marked the officer, when two panting negro men, with their clothing torn into shreds, were marched in. “ What’s the matter," asked the sergeant, “Fighting on the streets.” “Look ’em up.” * Everything was quiet then until the afternoon, when Philip Henry (colored) allowed his angry passions to rise, and vented them by hi ating Julia Cotton. He was trotted in, and the sergeant made quick work of him to the guard house. Half a dozen more drunks were gathered in before midnight and completed the day’s record. BUYING THE RING. The Way Jewelers Humor Their Bash ful Customers. “Do you get on to that llaming stone on his little finger)” remarked a Broughton stroot jeweler as a tidily dressed young fellow passed up tho street. “Well, I sold him that ring two weeks ago fgr an engagement ring, and you would have laughed if you could have seen him when be bought it. When he oame into tlie store I knew at once the object of his errand by the wav he deported himself, lie was ttugoty at first, then with an air of in difference, he n.lie,l to see some watches or a pair of sleeve buttons, but the way ho avoided the ringbotrayed him. 1 humoured him, because I had been there myseif and I knew how it was. It was funny enough, though. “Do yon meet with many such casesf” "Oh yes. We rarely ever have a man come right out and say that he wants an engagement ring. They always outer the store leisurely as if nothing was on their minds. They look over tlie show case and ask for several things that they have no idea of purchasing, then after a few minutes when they feel a little more at their ease, they take the clerk into their confidence and ask to be shown some soil taires. If it happens to be their first vent ul% and they don’t feel quite sure of their ground they even go so far as to ask if solitares are not sometimes used as engagement rings. The clerk’s answers usually reinovosevery doubt atul then ttic purchaser throws aside all reserve and selects the ring which strikes the happy medium between thedepth of his affection and his pocket. Now and then a young inau comes iu and asks for something for a friend. Every ring in the case is shown him and finally he selects one. remarking that if his friend is displeased, no can’t help it. that the selection was left to him. 1 always offer to let them take the ring to their friend before paying for it, lint each time they refuse by saying, ’Oh never mind, 1 know lie will be satisfied.’ "1 was amused several months ago by a v >utig man who came in to buv a ring for his friend, lie said. Ho played it well, and anybody lint a jeweler would not have ‘tumbled to his racket,’ It was this way: He bought a ring, and, like the others, was not altogether certain that his friend would like it. I told him if he was uncertain about it he had the privilege of returning it- He assured me that tliore would bo no trouble about that, and even went so far ns to have the initials put in it. When he asked me to put the initials in the ring he stopped, pulled off his hat, ran his fingers through his hair, hit the corner of the show case with his fist, remarking that lie ‘be dog gone ’ if he could remember tho initials. Ho studied for ut least fifteen minutes trying to think of them. Finally he nulled a piece of paper out of his pocket, and a smile passed’over his face. ‘All, yes, here they are.’ he said, ‘tlie old boy has put them on a piece of paper for me and I had forgotten about Laving the slip. ’ I took the piece of paper and put the inscription in the ring. I thought lie was buying tho ring for himself, but I was not certain, and 1 was bent on finding out .So after putting the Inscrip tion in the ring l wrapped it up in pretty najier ami placed it in a neat little box and handed it to him. ’Now 1 always give to each of my customers, who buy as much as you have, a pretty pin,’ said 1, and I took from a drawer a pretty 50 cent b ingle pin. ’Now if you will give me your name I will put it on tlie pin for you.’ Not dreaming of what I was after, lie gave me the same initials for tee pin that he did for tile ring. I had him. When 1 handed Inn ttie pin alter putting the inscription on if, 1 remarked in a casual manner, that he and his friend had nearly the same initials. His face flushed as lie seemed to remember and lie slipped out the door saying ‘yes nearly.’ ” At Eetill'a. Savannah Daii.y Morning Sewn, “The Colonel's Daughter,” by ('apt- Charles King, l". S.

Charleston News and Courier, Fonda ’limes- Union, Chicago Times. Louisville Courier-Journal THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY. JULY In, 1888, ON RAIL AND CROSSTIH, Local and General Gossip In Railway Circles. The track on the Atlanta and Florida railroad has been laid within six miles o t Fort Valley. Six firsCdass coaches are now being made for the South Carolina railway at the Ohio Falls car works. It is expected that they will be finished in the latter part of August. President Sparks of the Georgia Southern and Florida railroad has completed his ar rangements with Manager Belknap of the Central railroad to run into the union depot at Macon. The schedule will go into ! operation on Aug. 1. A vestibuled trafti, to be known as the ; Cincinnati and Jacksonville Short line, will be run over the East Tennessee and Queen and Crescent this full between Cincinnati and Jacksonville. The East Tennessee will take t o train at Chattanooga and carry it through Atlanta to Jacksonville. The train, w hich will have both the Mann and Pull man cars, will be inaugurated about Oct. 1. Myrtle division No. 25(i of the Brother hood of Ilocomotive Engineers is making preparations for a grand excursion from Atlanta and Macon, and along the line of the Savannah, Florida and Western rail way on July 34, good for four days, toj ter minate at Tybee, The following members of the Brotherhood have been appointed on the arrangement committee: P. J. Walsh, J. W. Smith, .J, I). McMi-caily, F. Goalsby, William Cahill, A. H, Lodge. Extensive preparations arc being made, and the com mittee expects that not leas than 1,000 peo ple will visit Savannah. The question of right of way of the At lanta and Florida railroad into Fort Valley, the Mirror says, is now a question for the elianc lior. The proposed arbitration is now regarded as a ruse to gain time for a bill an * injunction against arbitrators and the Atlanta and Florida, The case made by the Southwestern is that there is no necessity for the new road to come in in front of the hotel, and 'hat it would injure the Southwestern to allow the Atlanta and Florida to come in ns it proposes. The Central, in the meantime, is spreading itself along the ground near its depot. Col. George T. Fry, president of the At lantic, Atlanta and Western railroad, from Atlanta to Savannah, is going from county to county through which the road will pass. He says that the surveying corps is now operating at Key’s ferry, in Henry county, and is under the charge of Chief Engineer Vm. H. Frior. The road, he says, will he built by u construction company, organized under the laws of the state of New York, of which Gen. Fitzgerald is president. The company is composed of the officers of the Equitable life insurance company, and the organization was for the purpose of secur- ' ing an investment for the funds of that company. Col. Fry was in Hancock county Saturday, and was going from there to Bui ko and Scriven counties. “This talk about electricity taking the place of steam entirely is, in my opinion, all nonsense,” said an engineer” a day or two ago. “Have you ever computed the immense power of steam, as applied to a locomotive? Look at this engine. Shelias two cylinders of 17 by 24 inches; that is, 17 inches in diameter and 24 inches long. Into this small space enough power is compressed to move this engine,, tank, twenty loaded cars and caboose. The engine will weigh forty tons, or 80,000 pounds; the tank, or tender, loaded with its usual supply of WHter and coal, will weigh about 30.00 U pounds. A box car will weigh 25,000 pounds, and its load 00,000 pounds; twenty oars loaded will weigh just 17,000.000 pounds. Tho caboose will weigh about 30,000 pounds. Bo you see we have a grand total of 1,840'000 pounds moving over the ground at the rate of from twenty to forty miles an hour, nro pelled by an invisible power, emanating from a space 17 by 24 inches. Sometime! 1 look at a long hill on the road before me, then look back at a train of twenty ears, then look at those two small- cylinders, so’ small that a man could encircle one with his arm, and think that wonderful, indeed, must be the power generated, to surpass or even equal them in such a class of work. Ido not think it will ever be done with electricity.” Local Personal. J. 11. Carroll of Valdosta is at the Mar shall. A. Gibson of Macon Is at the Screven. J. M. Lang of Bainbridgo is at the Screven.

HOW TO MAKE $5,000 WITH A CAPITAL OF $5OO. A Savannahian Who Has Done It Gives Away the Secret— Looking Alter the Dollars, Strict Economy and Attention to Business Will Turn $5OO into $5,000 In Five Years, and Sometimes in Less Time. How to make $5,000 witli $5OO capital Is what a good many people would like to know. How to make two blades of grass grow where one grew is a great question. The man who does this is in a fair way to ward making $5,000 with $5OO. A “canny Scott,” who has the reputation of being shrewd and successful in financial affairs has gone a good ways toward solving the problem. He was asked by a Mousing News reporter a day or two ago what was the secret of his success and what he had found the best paying business. “Loaning money to impecunious news paper men and others,” was the pointed reply. “It is the best paying business I know of,” ho added, “and I have tried a good many.” "You must have had a varied business experience then,” remarked the newspaper man. “Yes, rather. It is hardly worth talking about though. I came to Savannah the year of the big storm, in 1881. I was on my wav to Florida to engage in orange ? rowing. While looking around Savannah thought I saw in it a good place to make money, and meeting with some friends who promised to help me along, I decided to remain. As soon as 1 got settled my first concern was how to put my .-pare capital to the best possible use. To be a banker had nl.ways been 'h<- ambition of my life. My capital of $5OO did not enable me to engage in the banking business just then. What could Ido with ssoof Not much you say, but time was som 'thing. For the employment of capital in dis counting small notes, there seemed to be ample scope in Savannah. The demand fo ready money exceeds the supply the world over, anti as a consequence the capitalist can always make business, and almost al ways on nis own terms I soon found that there was a number of small firms who were compelled either to draw on their cus tomers at sixty or ninety days or restrict their business. In many instances these firms kept so small a cash balance nt their bankers that they had in sufficient if any facilities for discount. Many of them I found were “honest but poor,” and in need of ready money to carry on their business. The mainspring of their trade was a rapid turn-over of both stock and money. Here, then, was my oppor tunity, and I set to work to improve it by using my capital in discounting small notes of $lOO or $l5O at thirty and sixty days, putting as many eggs into ns many baskets as possible, and thus minimizing my risks. In nearly every instance I had either collateral os security or an indorser.” “How about the rate of discount?” “Well, if a firm can turn over its capital every month at a profit of 20 per cent, on its sales, or a gross profit of 240 per cont. per annum, surely the difference between ttiis rate and that at which it can discount its bills is the balance of profit that it can make by the transac tion. In loaning money to needy mer chants, I enabled them to pay any accounts they might owe to wholesale houses, or to pay cash if they desired, for which they doubtless receive,! trade discount of 4 per cent, or 5 per cent, atid so enhanced their reputation, and so enlarged and consoli dated their credit. One merchant that I know of had an opportunity of buying, at a low price, a job lot. of goods for cash. He fully expected to milk-', and did after sard make, an extra profit of 35 per cent, on the transaction. To enable him to do this, money must be had. Surely it was worth 5 per cent, per month. “In addition to trade bills a large num ber of individual notes, with safe private acceptors, ore frequently offered for dis count. Young men of tlxed income, who have to meet installments on loan associa tion and other stocks, or who wish to go off on a holiday, often need temporary assis tance, for which they are willing to pay liberally, sometimes as high as 10 per cent, per m nth. "Such bills, with or without one or two names as indorsers, entail little or uo risk. I did not despise the dav of small things, and in every instance where colia.eral was offered l embraced the opportunity to make a dollar. 1 recollect an instance where a druggist came to me and said that he had a chance to buv at. auction a case of morphine slightly damaged by water. He had no money and wanted to borrow $lOO, offer as security a bill of sale of the g.ods. It was further arranged that mv discount on the loan should be one half the net profit on the transaction. The druggist took away my check for $lOO, leaving tits note therefor at 50 days and also the bill of sule. The morphine was purchased and shipped to Now York, where it was re asserted and tested. Un its return it was sold as clean stock for $2OO. My discount iu tlie transaction was therefore $5O, or at the rate of (100 per cent per auumn. 1 had no trouble and no ettrensc. My time was not taken up, and the result prove l that 1 had no risk. I hud simply utilized my op portunities to employ money that was otherwise idle. Hundreds of opportunities like this are all the time offered. At length my credit becoming established with the banks, I was enabled to enlarge my field of operations bv disc muting with them a number of notes for which I had no ready money. While tlie banks charged me 8 per cent for the discounts, J made at least 20 ami frequently HO per cent, all of which I considen and clear gam." “Hut you have said nothing about your losses.” “On no bills (hat I have dis counted during the past five years have 1 had a bad and lit. All have been paid i;i full, and the figures of my books snow that the average of my profits was fully 4 per cent, per month, ■ r 55 per cent, p r unnntrt. At those rates it is not a difficult cal culation, tail simply one of compound impr est, todenion-truie that tho time required b> i make $5,11X1 with a capital of $5OO is not moro than five years and a few months " “Do you ever man money to women)” Tite y ai ;g Sbylocl; 100 sed puzzled for a moment ‘ 1 have had now and then a few applications,but I invariably decline all bud ness dealings with i tie i. P Traps’when 1 enter that happy stub ," he explained sar donically, “wt ere tsi souls have not. a sin gle thought in common and have disposi tions that never will agree as one, 1 may loan money to the women, but not till then.” “Perhaps that rule is one of the secrets of your success as a financier,” suggested tho newspaper titan. "Maybe it is,” wn ti e brief reply, "but there is one tiling that 1 have always lived up to. 1 don't >peuil anymore tnonev or live any mote extravagantly with an in come o' $ .500 than when my iuoome was only ($5OO a >ear.” Of All Tbinga in the World A tonic is w hat nervi i , people require.

Atlanta Complains that It was Run In Savannah's Interest. Atlanta, as usual, is dissatisfied with the way tlie Interstate league has been run. If Atlanta had won the pennant everything doubtless would have been all right. This is what the Constitution base ball man says about the winding up of the league: “When the league was formed the schedule committee made a schedule termi nating July 14. It was undou tedly the idea of those favoring it that the season would be extended, but the financial condi tion of the clubs does not warrant such ex tension. It is probable that the champion ship will be awarded to Savannah. That club has undoubterlly won the largest pro portion of games played, but it is a serious question whether the Augusta games ought to count. Still, as the league has been run in the interest of Savannah throughout, it is not probable that anything will be allowed to stand in the way of her receiving the championship and the money involved. In games won the three clubs are about on an equal footing. Atlanta has undoubtedly played the best ball, and had it not b en for her disastrous first trip, would have had a walk over. The individual players have done well, making enviable records for themselves. The Atlanta club has demon strated that exeellen ball can be played by men who get salaries not to exceed SSO per month. It is a lesson from which bigger leagues may profit.” Games Yesterday.

A NOVEL INSTITUTION. Some Facts About the Theatrical Ex change. New York, July 14. On Fourteenth street is a simple sign which reads “The atrical Exchange.” A short flight of stairs leads the visitor to along hall occupying tho second floor. It is at least 30 leet wide, 100 feet long, and is broken by windows, through which a delightful breeze is for ever blowing. Tho decoration is appro priate. and consists of samples of litho graphic andchromo-lithogrophicart. There is a gory scene in which an 8-foot villain with a 24-inch dirk is about to carve the heart of the 5-foot hero, while the 4-foot heroine with a 4-inch derringer comes around the corner in time to punish vice and reward virtue. Here is a charming face of "Weezie Boggins, the star or Idaho,” wbilo not far off is tho portrait of some barnstormer of the Texi.s wilds. Tun furniture consists of little desks and chairs. It is 10 o’clock and the place is packed with customers and subscribers. A few feet away a dramatic editor is apologizing to an inebriated villain while a tall and ancient maid stands waiting her turn in which she will ask for a “loveiy” notico iu next Sunday’s Bazoo. At a third desk is the agent for a Chicago printing house chatting with a circle of ti iends. The .short, slender, nervous and black-eyed youth is N. S. Wood, the boy scout, although a score of years have rolled by since ho assumed tho name. The tall, hand some, smoothly shaven man noxt t, > him is 11. M. Pitr, better known as Harry Lite, lately of Edwin Atwell’s cornedv, “His Lordship.” Over both towers handsome Paul Nicholson, still alert and interesting, though gray wuh fifty years’ service on the stage. Nicholson is the spokesman and is describing his last experience on tho road. “"I was with Campunini, and wo did a royal business. But operatic people are not theatrical people. They won’t make hay while the sun shines. They are all abject slaves of his majesty, themselves. We were no exception to the rule. I was in Chicago when the telegraph boy handed me a message: ‘Season closed; come home!’ Here wn ■ a pretty go. I had about adollar, and owed bills amounting to seventy-five. 1 telegraphed back immediately for cash, received no reply, stayed in pawn a week, and the . borrowed enough money ou my personal credit tp pay my dont.s and get home with. No more music for me for some time to come.” At the next desk is a crowd of managers talking to abo king agent. Tue card over his desk explai: s his business: “Open time in Omaha, Lincoln, Atchison, Leavenworth, Topeka, Wichita, ot eec.” A second card reads: “Open dates in Altoona, Pittsburgh, Wheeling and Louisville.” A veritable meeting of the east and west. The managers represent melodrama, “legit imate,” variety and light opera. One of them remarks: “How this knocks out the old way of doing business. It took me two weeks writ ing and tel graphing, exchanging contracts and signing to close a date, and cost me a good round sum tor postage and wiring. Now 1 rush it through in a few minutes and it c sts nothing.” There is the same advantage on the other side, as tlie commission paid by the distant theater owner is far less than his hooking ox;>c:is'“s under the old style of administra tion. The company are listening to a chapter in Bruit ui’s career as Manager of .Maude Granger. “Mi star had done very well for several ni 'iitus. and unhappily got a slight attack of the dis use which at acks ail' actors at times, ‘bigliead.’ Wo had arranged to take the 10 o’clock morning tram, tue only one that would reach our noxt stopping pint" m time for a performance. Lie com pany und baggage were at the depot, but where was the atari I went to her room as mad us a hornet and lound her in lied read ing a novel. In reply to my remarks, wnich were very brief and pointed, she said: “ ‘O let them be to stay in tied!’ “1 rushed out, hired two huge porters, ami came back in a trice. We entered the room and I drew out luy watch. “ ‘.Miss Granger, if you're not up and dr ssi and in tiv, minutes, these men wifi roll you up in a blanket, carry voutoacar nage and put you o.i the tram just ns you are. ’ “She saw I meant it, and that the two men would do tlie k.duup net In tuns' minutes she was out in the corridor ready to depart.'’ “As ilev talk a district, messenger dashes in with a telegram, which Is immediately pasted oil oel of the bulletin hoard-, li is from Sin Francisco and leads: • uvo qmrt Play. 1 1 42,1.54 to-night—largest 1 i hist rv of h" !| e \V.
