The Avant jury was discharged this morning by Judge Tyler, and a mistrial was entered On the docket After the jury whs turned loose it was learned that it stood nine for acquit tal and three for conviction. This tesulted on the first ballot, ten min utes after the jury went to their room at the Franklin House Thursday evening. There was no change after wards. The Jurors who were forcon viction were Dean, Eobinson and Williams. They claim they would have hung the jury until doomsday before they would have voted to turn the prisoner loose. The jurors who were for acquitting the prisoner are equally obstinate in their belief that the prisotier is an innocent man. A member of the jury, who was for acquittal, said to a reporter this morning that that the evidence of Dr. Wharton, the analytical chemist, fixed him on the side of Avant. He said that Dr. Wharton would not swear particularly that he found strychnine in the stomach, but "to the best of his knowledge and belief'! it was strychnine. This juror holds that when a man's life is at stake the evidence should be positive. He did not construe Dr. Wharton's testimony as being positive, conse quently he gave the accused the benefit of the doubt. A reporter approached Attorney General Pitt this morning and asked him what he would do. He replied that he would hold the prisoner for another trial. , How to Cure a Cold. Sinuply take Otto's Cure.

This company played to a fair house lint night, but not one equal to its merits. Our people are slow to p itronize anything without knowing something of its qualities. We have no doubt, however, of the attendance to-night, as the unanimous approval of last night's performance is a guar antee for a good house to-night. It was some disadvantage that the lady soprano vocalist was prevented fro r being present by the dangerous illness,' as we are informed, of a brother : but the exertions of Miss Daily, the mezzo, and the great va riety of other attractions rendered the defect inappreciable. The first triumph scored was that of E. A. Couturier, whose solo on the cornet evinced a mastery of the in strument which developed the cap abilities of that instrument to-an ex tent only limited by the limitations of the instrument. The violinist, Chevalier Niedzel ski, went beyond even this, for the violin is an instrument that has no limitations. In the hands of this performer 1 it produced effects we have never heard before ; it seemed like a familiar spirit under the con trol of a great magician, sometimes breaking loose from his sway into the most eccentric freais, but always returning to.its allegiance and doing its master's will. It was altogether a most original performance. JVIiss Gleason is an elocutionist of an unusually nigh order. rom grave to gay he always swayed the feelings of her audience at their ut most pitch, and at one time we be gan to think there would be no end to the encores. A very attractive feature in the performance was the ballad singing by Mr. Julian Jordan. This gentle man is a composer as well as a vocal ist," and only wants more physical power to become a primo tenore. But the touching expression that he gave to the singing of Ids own songs gave them an interest beyond the reach of the operatic artist. Wo have only to notice in addition the powerful voice and the scien tific singing of Signor Visini, whose performance of the well known "II Balen," from Travatore, left nothing to be desired. We must add, however, that the interest in Mr. Courturii r's cornet playing was greatly enhanced when the able second cornet of Miss Zim merman was added to the music of the leading instrument. If transcendent merit, now well ascertained, has anything like its legitimate influence the "Celebrities" must certainly have a crowded house to-night. Surprising Testimony. . Many physicians who have exam inei into the merits of B. B. B. (Bo tanic Blood Balm), have been confronted with testimony which they deemed surprising, and thus being convinced of its wonderful efficacy, have not failed to prescribe it in their "practice as occasion e-, quired. it. Li. uassiuy, iennesaw, ua., writes: "For two years my wife was a great sufferer. Skillful physicians did her no good. Her mouth was one solid ulcer, her body was broken out in sores, and she lost a beautiful head of hair. Three bottles of B. B. B. cured her completely, incredible as it may sound, and she is now the mother of a healthy three months old baby clear from any scrofulous taint." A. H. Morris, Pine Bluff, Ark., writes: "Hot Springs and several doctors failed to cure me of several running ulcers on my leg, B. B. B. effocted a wonderfully quick cure Rfier everything else had failed."

Tennessee and Kentucky Hap- peninga Briefly Chronicled. Bom News Notes That Will ProYt In teresting to Readers of tea Lea? Chronicle. The tobacco market at Henderson, Ky., Is reported on a boom. -Buyers are paying fancy prices for good to bacco. . . The railroad assessors of Kentucky have just completed their assess ments. The valuation has increased over two million dollars. The L. A N. is assessed about $38,000,000 on Its pioperty In the State. Henderson, Ky. gets coal gas at one dollar per thousand. The coal costs the company, according to the Gleaner, 7 ceota per bushel. The recent municipal ctntest at Louisville resulted ' in the defeat of all but one of the regular Democratic nominees.- A coalition of Independ ents and Republicans did the work in spite of th? strong fight for the straight ticket by the Courier-Jour nal. The following from the Giles CountyiDemocrat would lead one to believe that the people of that coun ty are easily "torn np:" "OnMon day - last we were shown letters which disclose a disgraceful episode of the attempt to tear Giles county up over the United States Senator- ship. Every member of the execu tive committee of Giles county has received a letter or letters from Mr. Laps D. McCord, containing a 'com plimentary ticket and invitation to attend Gov. Taylor's lecture Thurs day night.'" The Pulaski Citizen will be par doned for this, as the Christmast rush fr advertising space Is now on: "Gentlemen, kindly cut your ar ticles on the Senatorial question shorter to insure insertion. Our pa ir only has forty-eight columns and Home of these have been previously engaged by our advertising patrons." The Pulaski Citizen doubts the as sertion made by the Leaf-Chroit-rcLE: That this paper was the first one to nominate Ex Governor Porter or a place In Mr. Cleveland's cabl aet. The Leaf-Chronicle nomi nated him the day after the election, ind this was two days before th Citizen had told its readers of the landslide. The Interstate Commerce Commis sion has issued an order to the L. & N. railroad company requiring a re duction of rates on the coal from the Kentucky coal fields on the South eastern road. There are many peo pie in Clarksville who think cheapei coal could be secured here if the right kind of effort was made. When will the people rebel against the remorseless dirt road tax? It kills horses, breaks wagons and rebs the people day and night. The cost liest thing on earth when you consid er its length, breadth and thickness is the dirt road; and the Booner It is abandoned the better for the public weal. Wtst Tennessee Whiff. Says the Banner : The quarterly report of Treasurer House, which was due Oct. 1, and which was not , published at the time because Mr. I Simonton, the chief clerk to the Treasurer, who usually transmits it to the Governor, was away at the time it should have gone in, has been in the hands of the Governor since Monday. The Governor has been so busy thl9 week tbat he has not had time to look over the doc- j ument. Some time before the election Gen. Norman had oc casion to write to Jesse Sparks, Jr., at Murfreesboro on legal business, and in the letter he facetiously in vited Mr. Sparks to Gov. Buchanan's inauguration, which, h- said, would take place some time In January. Mrv Sparks showed Gen. Norman the letter to-day.' Gen Norman takes these things pleasantly. A friend of Senator Bate Is re ported in saying that the Senator spoke freely of his chances of re elec tion. The figures given by him to bis friend were as follows : Over forty of the eighty-eight members are positively instructed for blm and over two-thirds of tbe Democrats are for blm at this time. Said Senator Bate's friend to a reporter: "The opponents of Senator Bate will have to do some mighty fine work to de feat him. No wonder th y ask for an appeal to some other tribunal be sides the Legislature." Senator Carlisle, of Kentucky, is spoken of as likely to become Secre tary of tbe Treasury under Mr. Cleveland. A movenfent Is also on foot In favor of Mr. Breckinridge as Speaker oj the House. Tbe following story, started at Knoxville, is now going the rounds of the press: Two prominent citi zens of London county, Tenn., while hunting In the mountains, discover-j ed a cave containing a well-preserv ed mummy similar in every respect to those of Egypt, and a large trunk or case bound with biass and sealed in several places. Upon being open ed it was found to contain several leather cases, also sealed. The larg est was opened and a roll of parch ment was found which was covered with Hebrew characters. The relics were deposited in tbe vault of the First National Bank of Loudon and the Smithsonian Institute notified. Bev. Dr. Tucker, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, translated one of the manuscripts and finds it to have been written by Menkara, High Prlesl of the land of Khem. It contains reference to the hidden treasures, which the writer says will be needed for a great war. The story is stranger than Rider Haggard's most visionary efforts. The Clerk of the County Court, A. S. Henderson, has written a very peculiar Incident which led to the discovery.
