Death of U. W. Griosaa.
IlnpMnsville has again been depriv
ed by death of a useful and highly
esteemed citizen. Mr. M. W. (Irissam
whose serious illness and subsequent
temporary convalescence were report
cd recently in (IiaSoutiiKkntih.'Kiak
died at Dawson, Ky., at 9 o'clock r
m. Sept, 28th. Just as his friends
had come to regard him out of dan
ger he suffered a relapse which quick,
ly terminated his earthly existence
His remains arrived on the afternoon
train Tuesday and remained at his
residence until 3 o'clock Wednesday
when they were taken to tho Metho
dist church and a funeral discourse
delivered by Rev. E. W. Bolloniley,
alter which they were interred in the
city cemetery.
Micajali W. Grissain was born iu
Christian county ou tlio 18th of Au
gust, 1837. His early life was spent
on bis father's farm. Iu 1800' lie
removed to Kirkmaiisvlllc, Todd
county, and engaged in mercantile
pursuits. In September 1878 he caino
to Hopklusvillc and bought the
Phoenix Hotel and for a year con
ducted it. He has been renting the
hotel for several years and has been
engaged in the grocery business. On
Dee. 21, 1870, he was married to Miss
Nannie M. Lacy, of Todd county
who survives him. Four children
were born to them, three of whom
are living.
Mr. Grissain was a man with many
strongly marked traits of character.
He was jovial and companionable
anil no man excelled hi in lu popular
ity. He possessed great sagacity as a
business man and was successful in
whatever he undertook. Asa citizen
ho was enterprising and progressive,
as a man honest and reliable in all
things. He was a man who will be
missed greatly iu the community and
in many respects his ulaco will be
hard to till. Ho hud been troubled
with symptoms of bad health for
some lime and went to Dawson hop
ing to find relief. While there he
was stricken down with a serious af
fection of the bowels from which he
recovered after being at death's door
for several days, but pneumonia at
tacked him ten days later and baffled
the skill of his physicians from t lie
first. We deeply sympathize with
his bereaved family in their terrible
loss and iu common with all who
knew him deplore the loss of an up
right and valuable cltic.cn.

The frcquoot sinking of Florida
land and tho disappearance of lakes in
that country is accounted for by the
Jumper Time in this way: The State
has a good many caves and subterran
ean rivers. They ore generally arched
over with rock, supported by huge rock
pillars, but in some ploiws veins ot
sand, varying in size, run through the
rock. During the wet seasons this
saud veins get tilled with water, which,
percolatiug through, sometimes causes
tlio cut re vuin to fall through. Whoa
the vein happens to be only a few inches
or feet In diameter It is known as a
uaturul well, but when it comprises an
aero or two it is called a "sink."

aginative story, but the way in which
tho small boy has attempted to realize
how boys ought to live, and what they
ought to bo allowed to do. It is said
that the dime novel boy usually reads
tho scrtvpbook, which is rapidly in
creasing iu size as the fresh exploits of
the dime novel adventures aro added to
