James Valentine stated that Geor- eia Scott and his sister had i, disa- procment. and that five minutes before the fire sne Purchased a gallon of oil ana reiurneu to ner room, ine cnua Mid that Georgia Scott sent her to the restaurant to get something to eat, and when she returned she be came sleepy and was told by Georgia to lay down and go to sleep.

Watkins took vi olently ill, so much so that physicians were immediately summoned. They worked faithfully, but were unable to relieve her suffering. She died Fri day evening at 6:30 o'clock an the re sult of an attack of what is said to have been cholera. The deceased was well known in Nashville, having been born and reared in this city. Mrs. Watkins was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George D. Watkins, of 1505 Wayne ave nue and was one or nine children, of whom three survive her. Death came while she was residing with her 1 parents. The deceased attended Car ter school on Kayne avenue, and later was a student at Walden Uni versity. On June 10, 1889, she was married to John Overall of this city; three beautiful children were given them and these are left to mourn her loss. The deceased was a sister to Miss Georgia E. Watkins. The funeral services over the remains -were held at the Lea Avenue Christian Church, Monday afternoon. They were sol emn and impressive ana were con ducted by Rev. Preston Taylor, the pastor." A special choir of young la dies, personal friends of the family, furnished music for the services. The interment was made in the family lot at Greenwood Cemetery. While not a member of any secret organi zation the congregation had the ap pearance of such. The funeral was largely attended and general grief was noticeable at the church and in many homes where she waB known. CHARGES OF GRAVE NATURE. Charges , of a very grave character were this morning preferred against Dr. E. E. Reisman, House Surgeon of the City Hospital, by Dr.'.M. C. McGah non. The charges, which consume four pages of legal cap paper, were filed with the Board of Public Works at noon. In his charges Dr. McGannon al leges that on the 10th day of October he operated upon Addie Crockett, a negro woman sent to the City Hospital from Clarksville, being assisted in the operation by Dr. C. N. Cowden, the latter taking charge of the case after the operation. The patient's condi tion Ib declared to have been entirely satisfactory until the night of the 14th Inst.when the patient complained of a burning sensation in her stomach, with other symptoms that attracted the attention of the nurse. The nurse it is stated, thereupon notified Dr. Boswell, who called in Dr. Reisman, who then assumed charges of the case. It is alleged that though Dr. Cowden daily visited the patient and gave or ders for the treatment, he was never informed of the accident, nor were any of his orders carried out. On the 2Cth instant, it is stated, the patient's condition was such that Dr. Cowden became convinced that something was being hidden from him; that the pa tient reluctantly told him that she had been given the wrong medicine and been vomiting and unable to eat from that time. Dr. Boswell, the interne, when questioned, told Dr. Cowden that he must get his information from the house surgeon, Dr. Reisman. ilVEX OXALIC ACID. The next day, Dr. Reisman told Dr. Cowden that the patient had been giv en oxalic acid by mistake, but that she was getting along all right. That afternoon, it is alleged. Dr. Cowden found the patient in a dying condi tion; whereupon D". McGannon was called in and ci;!a an InveUgalioa, the details of which are set out ia the charge set out in the communication to the Board of Public Works. It is stated that the records, charts and order books kept by the nurse fails to mention anything with re gard to the mistake which is alleged to have made or the treatment sub sequently given the patient. OEDEKS 71 EVER CARRIED OUT. It is further charged that the or ders given Dr. Iteiaman by Dr. Cowdcn were never carried out. the treatment from the time she had taken the pois on up to the time of her death was not that he would have advised. Dr. Iteisman is charge,! with grave infringement of the laws of the hos pital for undertaking to treat a pa tient in the hospital without the sanc tion of the staff; that he. was doubly culpablt for alleged treatment cf a private patient; that his conduct was unetnical and contrary to the dis cipline of the Institution, and that he auinonzfd and continued the falsi fication of reports. The Board is requested to make a thorough investigation and deal with the matter as they may see fit. ine. document further states that allegations made herein were agreed to at a conference, after an investi gation, between himself, Drs. Cowden, iteisman and Boswell. ' The communication states that postmortem examination was held upon the body of the patient, who died Wednesday, and it is charged that the condition of the patient's organs &nowod that she had died as a result of the administration of a poison and deatn was duo to that cause alone, A GREAT RELIGIOUS WEEKLY.

"In a hollow tree, during my vaca tion, I found two young owls," said a student. "I also found in the same nest two eggs. Puzzled that the mother owi should have abandoned iher set. ting ere its completion. I laid the mat ter before my farmer host. "The farmer told me that country people know well that the owl. after hatching half her brood, leaves the other eggs to be hatched by the new born birds. These youne are warm blooded, they are helpless to leave the nest, and nine cases out of ten the complete the hatch as well as the mother would have done.
