Charles and George Aultman, brothers, aged 16 and 14 years respectively, were met near Cam- j eron by a tramp umbrella vender named Goodie Walters. The tramp learned that Charles Aultman had $9, and assaulted him with a knife, to se cure it. The younger boy drew a re volver and fired six shots at Walters, one of which struck his brother, in flicting a wound from which he died four hours later. Walters was hit three times and will die. Horrible Hpectuclc. St. Augustine, Fla., Sept. 6. A let ter has been received in this city dis closing a tenible state ot affairs in the town of Bayard, about twenty miles north of here. William Ortrus, living at Sampson, four miles from Bayard, had occasion to visit the lat ter place. On nearing the settlement he was attracted by a strong stench, which emitted from the vicinity of a house supposed to be vacant. Through curioiity he hitched his horse and pro ceeded to investigate. On reaching the house a ghastly spectacle met his eye. Stretched upon a couch was the body of a woman and in the same room were the bodies of five children. They had evidently been dead for sev eral days. The country people are horror stricken and if even it were known that any one had been occupy ing the house, it is unlikely if any of them could have been induced to go near it if he knew there was a case of yellow fever. It is supposed the un fortunates were refugees from Jack sonville and were stricken with the disease after leaving town. (Isaac Lewis' Old Stand.) Cleanfast Hosiery ! ACME OF PERFECTION REACHED!

The gun-J boat Lealtad lying at Batabanc, found ed in the storm and nine oi her crew, including the commander, were drown ed. Advices from Sagua are that fifty persons lost their lives there, while the damage done to dwellings and warehouses in the city, to vessels in the harbor and to the wharves is very great. The village of Puebla Nuevo was literally wiped out. Telegraph wires were badly broken, and great damage generally has been done. A Modern AJnx. Columbia, Sept. 6, Capt. J. A. Peterkin, a large cottton planter of Fort Mott, near this city, has, he thinks solved the problem that has been agitating cotton planters since the for mation of the trust. He has ordered extensive machinery for the purpose of making wood bagging for cotton, to take the place of jute. The bagging can be made of sweet gum or any swamp wood, and will be of veneer, one-eighth of an inch thick. When this is used the cotton will be thoroughly boxed and not liable to catch fire. The stuff can be taken from the log and will not injure cot ton. He will be able to make 200,000 feet a day and furnish it at five cents per .yard. He predicts that in a short time every one who owns a gin will be able to cut his own bagging at a small cost. 1, JVustira Sts. NulcIiliMl. Korrvillo, Septembor G. Martin E.
