Landon Wyly has committed suicide. The above words were received here from Memphis by telephone last Friday afternoon, and the news spread rapidly. According to the published re port in the Commercial Appeal, he stopped at a lodging house on Front street after going to Mem phis Monday. He told the propri etor that he intended leaving on Thursday, but returned that night and went up to his room. At about lO.uO o'clock Friday -morning he was still sleeping, aud-was notdis- turbed. He failed to come down in the afternoon, and the proprie tor, made another trip to his room and found him dead. On a table, near the -bed, was found an empty glass that had a short while before contained laud anum. The oder of the drug was plainly perceptible in the glass and in the room. The presence and strong smell of the poison told its own fcC. The body was received here Saturday evening and given buil at Camden Cemetery Sun day afternoon. -Landon left home Monday night of last week, telling his mother he was going to Memphis to accept a position on the Steamer Delta Mrs. Wyly and the family were almost overcome by the news of his tragic death. Landon was a noble hearted boy, and his one great fault was an un conquerablethirstforstrongdrink. He has held many important posi tions since he attained his major ity and was a young man of splen intellectuality. He made friends wherever he went, and was well known to many of the wholesale houses of Birmingham, Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans and other cities of the South and West. It had been our great pleasure to know Landon since he was a little child, and our heart goes out in sympathy to the fond mother and father and his little sister.

To Whom "it May Concern : I suffered intense pain day and night from a cut in the eyeball, which destroyed the sight. I was treated by two doctors for three mouths, but they did me no good. My eyes gradually grew worse. They said the eye would have to be taken out and that probably I would lose the sight of the other. I tried one small bottle of Dr. D. Garfinkle's Remedy, and in two weeks my injured eye was entirely well and the sight in my other eye was as good as ever. I would ad vise all Gtiffering with their eyes to write or see Dr. D. Gar'fiukle. I am, gratefully yours, JosErci Greenawalt. A NEW GKAXX. A new grain is heralded from the West.
