It is very dusty now, and a good rain would help out wonderfully. Now the season of the year has ar rived when the dainty belle bedecks her self with orange blossoms, as she dreams over the gorgeous bonnet she intends to wear on Easter Sunday. Mr. Henis Petermann has opened a branch store cut on the corner of Lemon and Fourth streets, where he will keep a stock of goods for the accommodation of his customers out that way. See his specials. The Palatka Dramatic and Literary So ciety are now rehearsing a new drama, which will soon be presented to the pub lic. The members are taking a lively interest in the Society, and the drama will be presented in the best manner. The Street Committee have had sub stantial new bridges put over the ditches at the intersection of Lemon and Second streets, and the ditches cleaned out and put in good condition. The improvement was needed, and will lie appreciated by the public. On Tuesday morning the infant bod of Mr. and Mrs. B. I'. Calhoun died at their residence in this city. The little one was about five weeks old, and all extend heartfelt sympathy to the parents in their loss. The body was in terred in West View Cemetery. George Pierce was up before the Mayor's Court yesterday morning on a charge of fighting. He was assessed five dollars and cost, which he paid. Geo. Dickerson.a tramp.also put in an appear ance, and one dollar and costs were en tered up against him, which will be liqui dated by work on the streets. " The Chester Times speaks in these words of our old friend, the City of Pa latka her change of name and service: The twin-screw steamer Eastern Ore gon sailed from New Yoik for Bal timore last Saturday, where she will load with coal for San Francisco. The East ern Oregon was built at Roach's ship yard at Chester, Pa., under the name of the City of Palatka, forf 115,000. The ball under the auspices of the We laka Base Ball Club at Welaka. Monday night, was an elegant affair. About two hundred ladies and gentlemen were present from the different points on the Peninsula, and contiguous points on the river. The music was furnished by the Pomona string band. The game of base ball in the afternoon between the We lakas and Kerr Citys resulted in a vic tory for the Welakas. Score 14 to 21. We anderstand tbat an important real estate transaction was made in Palatka yesterday. We could not get at the exact particulars, but the deed given by Mr. John Mullen, of Webb's Real Estate Agency, to Mr. K. W. Perry, was a con ditional one. This much we did learn, however, of the conditions, and that is that a building is to be erected on the land at once, and that it ia to be occupied in less time than tbiee months! Tbat was all that could be pumped out of the real estate man. The Palatka Club continues to hold its popularity with the yung men of the city, and a number of them meet in the handsomely furnished and cosy rooms every evening for social enjoyment and exercise iu the gymnasium. This is one of the most successful and popular social clubs ever organized in Florida, and we are glad to have it in our town. The young men would make themselves bet ter known and at the same time furnish a pleasant evening occasionally, if they would invite the ladies to the club rooms and allow them to indulge in a game of billiards, pool, euchre and such pastimes. We doutt not their fair friends would appreciate such a privilege. The question of the beet manner to handle and get rid of the night soil of the city, is agitating the B iard of Coun cilmen and some of ouj citizens. There is a scheme on foot now to have it car ried off in buckets to the swamps, and the Council will soon be asked to pass an ordinance requiring all citizens to use buckets or boxes suitable for handling, when they will lie moved out at least once a week. Until we can get asis tern of sewerage this plan is probably the most feasible one, and we hope it may be inaugurated at once. The more thickly popujated portions of the city is badly in need of some such plan. Mr. John Bixler is the proprietor of quite a choice little menagerie, which he has collected at Edwards' saloon. In the collection he has a Florida bear, two ot ters, four squirrels, a ccon and a dog, and altogether they make a happy fam ily. A great many visitors go around to see the collection, and the coon and bear prove to be prime favorites with all. though the people take good care to keep a proper distance letween themselves and the bear. The ottets are very young yet, but afe growing off finely and will soon be running around the streets. The coon is as mischievous as a monkey, and the squirrels are as cross as the average society belle when the ball season end-. Ho: for Daj lona. Excursionists over the White Road, on the 27th inst., will have a delightful trip and will get the first viev. of the Mos quito Inlet Lighthouse given to the gen eral public. For weeks materials for this structure have been passing over the St. Johns and Halifax Road, and these have already summed up an aggregate of 60,000 pounds. Florida cannot be properly "done without seeing the Halifax section, and there is much to repay a visit especially to those tourists who have seen little of our coasts. The steamer Armsmear will leave Palatka at 8:30a. in., and a delight ful day may be passed and this city reached again by 7:00 p. m. Meantime, the strange features of the wild woods and quaking bogs, the rushing Tamoka, the groves of Ormond and Daytona, the beauties of Silver Beach, the grandeur of the thundering breakers, and a view from the new lighthouse with its stair case of 339 steie. will remain an abiding memory and new experience to conien sat for the fatigue of tho rody. The railroad will make close connection w ith the steamer Clara at Daytona, and a trio down the Halifax is not soon forgotten. To those who prefer to remain for a more leisurely survey of the East Coast we can commend the hospitalities of our neighbors as a further pleasure a-vaiting them. The New Opera House. At last we are able to state authorita tively that by next season we will have a new Opera House. The company has already been organized and all the stock taken, and the building will be put up during the coming summer. The com pany is composed of Messrs. Cook Carle ton, M. Loeb, E. T. Lane and G. Loper Bailey, of Palatka, and M. IJ. Dingee, of New York. The building will lie conveniently located, and the hall will be on the first floor, thus making it en tirely safe and easy to get out in case of fire or a stampede from any other cause. It.will be constructed in the best man. uer, and finished up in elegant style, with a large stage and a roomy audi torium. With our new Opera House, next sea son we will have all the tirst-class com panies coming South, and the snide shams will give us a wide berth. Alarm or Fire. The fire alarm given between 10 and 11 o'clock yesterday morning was caused by the house of a colored man named Finlej catching fire. The house is lo cated near the Florida Southern Railway shops, and the fire was extinguished with a few buckets of water. The new fire alarm bell drew a large crowd of citizens to the engine house in a very short time, and the volunteer fire department had their apparatus out in good time. Repairs were being made to the gas pipe of the engine house, and the bridge in front of the doors was torn up, but the timbers were put in place in a jiffy and the trucks rolled out ready for service had they been needed. The fire did but little damage. Having in our official capacity as i members of the Plymouth Hospital Committee been asked to test and prove i the effectiveness of many different ar ; tides t J be used as disinfectants in sick i rooms and as preventives of infectious fevers, report tbat Darbys Prophylactic Fluid has been thoroughly tested during the recent Typhoid epidemic in this place. It proved most efficacious in staying the spread of fever. F. H. Armstrong, S. M. Davenport, J. A. Opp, O. M. Lance. Thos. Kerr. James Lee, Jr. Death or a Printer. Wm. G. Jackson, foreman of theTerre Haute (Ind.) Ejrprexs, died on Tuesday night, at one of the De Weston cottages, on Dodge street, of quick consumption. He was very young being only twenty one years of age but by his industrious habits and strict attention to business had for several years held a responsible position on the above-named journal, which is one of the leading papers of In diana. He was of a very amiable dispo sition, greatly loved by all. who knew him, and bis death is a sad blow to his many friends, but especially so to a widowed mother and an only sister. Mrs. Jackson, the mother of the le ceased who for the past thtee months has scarcely left the bedside of her only boy is nearly prostrated with grief and fatigue, but is deeply grateful for the kind attention bestowed upon her by the people of Palatka the ladies especially and desires us to express her heartfelt thanks. The remains will lie interred in West View Cemetery this morning. I'KltSO.VAI.S, Wm. P. Itandall, Lieutenant-Corn manili-r in the U. S. N., iasset through ; Palatka yesterday en route for Tampa j He will return iu a few days anil stop j for some time in the Gem City. i Messrs. M. C. Jordan and M. Jacobs, ! of the Jacksonville Sunday Vritiiie, i were in town yesterday, and called at The News oltice. These gentlemen pub lish a most interesting paper, and it is meeting with encouraging success. Mr. Will Gordon had the misfortune yesterday to have the end of one of his lingers marbed tf. He as loading a barrel on a wagon, when it slipped and fell, catching his finger against the wgon body, and the edge of the barrel cut the finger ctl as smooth as a knife could have done it. Mr. John F. Ely and daughter, of De troit, Mich., are in the city on a pleasure trip, and were pleasant callers at The News office yesterday. Mr. Ely is an extensive look and job printer of De troit, and turns out an immense quan tity of work. This is his first visit in three years, and Palatka has grown so fast and the improvements have been so vast that he hardly knew the place.
