Burland left yesterday for Montreal, Canada, in response to a tele gram announcing the prolably fatal ill ness of his father. R. J. Riles has a fine stock of new in dependent stylograph pens, which he is retailing at fl.00 each. They are the best pens of the kind yet offered, and are being sold in great quantities. Ileavy shipments of vegetables con tinue to go North every day, and the re turns, when honestly made, are proving very satisfactory to the shippers. The op-river boats bring down a good lot every day. The fruit growing business is of a very respectable age. The first man was a fruit-grower and the first event in the history of the world, of whiA we have any written account, is connected with the industry. The dry goods and shoe merchants, we learn, will hereafter keep their stores open on the evenings of the 10th and 15th of each month, in order to accom modate their customers who are em ployed by the railroads. Several young gentlemen -f the city gave a German last night at the West End House, complimentary to several young ladies now visiting the city. The evening's pleasures were enjoyed very much by all those present. Some of the wooden sidewalks in the city are in very bad repair, and need immediate attention. We hear com plaints daily, and the owners should be made to put them in good condition or tear them away altogether. The hotel registers show a long list of arrivals every day, and travel over the railroads is still very good. A great many people are still going North, but plenty will lie left here during the sum mer to keep things moving along smoothly. The afternoon rains we are now having make the evenings and nights as cool as anyone would like to have them. Alto gether, our weather is now very "nice, and the thermometor has not yet tried to break out at the top on account of the heat. We learn that the Jacksonville Home Minstrels will visit Palatka and give one of their delightful entertainments alxmt Monday week. The young men compos ing the company possess considerable talent, and we hope to see them greeted with a full house. Times may be hard, but that fact does not prevent a great many people coming in each day and sulwcribing for The Pa latka News. We are getting a great many new subscribers each day. and the paper is growing in popularity in every section of the State. As wDl be seen from a notice printed in another place J. N. Black well lias been appointed receiver of the firm of Richardson & Company. He will settle up the affairs of the concern as Boon as possible, and alt those inter ested would do well to read the notice published this morning. The first peaches of the season came in yesterday from Evinston. The crop promises to be a very heavy one this year, and thePeen-Toand Honey peaches will soon be plentiful in our market. The first lot were offered at fifty cents a dozen, but the prices will come down so that ordinary people can eat them. The annual slaughter of the young mocking birds has begun. It is a wise bird that builds its nest where it will not be robbed of its young. The Legisla ture now in session could pass no law that would give m6re satisfaction than one for th&Ajrotcrtion of our mate hies ong bird. Mr. N. S. Dorwin, who has many friends in Palatka, sends us a copy of the Fort Payne, Ala., Journal, published in the booming little town where he now lives. We notice from the paper that that section of the State is in the midst of a great boom, and the mining and other industries are being rapidly devel oped. Catarrt, Hay or Rose Fever. The cleansing, soothing and healing properties of Darbys Prophylactic Fluid are exercised in the treatment and cure of Catarrh and kindred complaints. The Fluid soothes and heals the inflamed menbranes and removes the offensive odor that characterize the disease. Should the inflammation have reached the throat use the Fluid as a gargle to allay the inflammation and to disinfect. Something- the People Won't Forget Harriabursr Patriot. When Republican newspapers begin to prate about the "color line," they have simply forgotten, for the time being, the little matter of the appointment of a Recorder for the District of Columbia by the President and the very consistent action of the Republican Senate thereon. They forget it, but the people do not. HOW IT INCKEASES. iMtkw mt the Tlsaes-l'nlon's Boasts Ex- Not long since, the Jacksonville Times Union, in making a boast that Thk Pa Latka News would not encroach on its circulation, took occasion to say that its circulation in Palatka was increasing, and that it would confine Thk News to its own vicinity for readers. The fact is The News is selling more papers in Jack ville than the Timea-Union has sold in Palatka since we began printing the As sociated Press news, and that paper's sales have fallen off considerably in this city, as can readily be seen by the fol lowing statements from the newsdealers that the T.- U. is so fond of quoting : During the month of March, when The Palatka News first printed the Associated Press news, R. J. Riles took twenty to twenty-five copies of tiie Time-Vnion each day. The sales fell off so rapidly that in April he reduced his order to ten per day, which numlier he still receives, but sells now on an aver age only five copies per day. F. C. Cochrane in March took forty copies of the Timest-Union per day, which order he has reduced to twenty per day, and now sells on an average only ten a day. A. G. Phillips, during the month of March, took twenty-five copies of the Timen-Uniiiu each day, and takes now fifteen copies. His average sales are atout ten copies ier day. The Timea-Union can take these facts and figure out the increase of sales in Palatka. It is also perfectly welcome to boast as much as suits its tawte on its growing popularity, if such stuff can be choked down the throats of its readers. These figures also show how the T.-U. is confining The Palatka News to a hole. TWO NEGROES DROWNED. The Keanlt of n Sqnall on the Halifax Klver. On Tuesday afternoon last a party of ten negro laborers, in crossing the Hali fax River to Ormond, were caught in a squall, when thelstat caidzed ami threw all of them into the water. Eight of the darkies held on to the upturned J a Kit until a iarty of white men, headed by Mr. Amsden, for whom the negroes hat! been working, went to their rescue, when they were taken out of the water and carried ashore. The other two. Will Wes ton, of Brunswick, Ga., and George Bingham, of San Mateo, were drowned. When our informant left Ormond Messrs. Connell, Watson and FJsworth, assisted by several darkies, were drag ging the river for the bodies of the un fortunate men. When tlie squall struck the boat the negroes became panic stricken snd lost entire control of it, and when taken from the water the eight survivors were more dead than alive from fright. Had it not been for the daring bravery of Mr. Amsden anil other white men in going to their rescue in the heavy sea, there is no doubt but the entire arty would have perislied. A Roof on Fire. Yestenlay afternoon at 2:.V o'clock the roof of Mrs. Smith's boarding house, on Laurel street, opposite Third, caught fire from the sparks of a assing Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Rail way locomotive. It was extinguished by the occupants of the house with buckets of water liefore the flames got any head way, and but slight damage was done. The West End Fire Company, of which Captain John T. Gay, is foreman, re sponded quickly to the alarm, the hose carriage reaching tlie premises in just two minutes ami thirty seconds after the alarm was given, but too late to lie of service, as the flame had already lieen extinguished. A numlier of houses along our rail roads have caught fire from this cause. The railroads should use some means to keep the dangerous siKtrks from flying on the intiamahle roofs of the houses along Main anil Laurel streets. Whortleberry Pie and Sardines. A stranger arrived in Palatka several days ago, and finding time hanging heavy on his hands, proceeded to fill up with red liquors. The quality of the whisky, or the quantity, combined with the hot weather, soon put him in communica tion with wliat is commonly known as the "monkeys," ami while the way he raved was pitiable enough, it is not with out its humorous side. On awaking one morning, suffering all the agonies of the jim jams, he called loudly and begged hard for a prriest to come to his relief. While waiting for tlie riest to come he exclaimed: "Holy Mary, mother of Jesus, see what a small piece of whortle berry pie and a sardine can do!" And all the persuasive powers of his friends could not induce him to acknowledge that it was whisky and not the pie and sardine that had brought him to his pitiful condition. Selene on the Water. Palatka, Fla., May 13. Kilifor the Pnlntka Xetr. I was glad to see your sensible edito rial this morning entitled Wandering Waters. It is Jrue, I had not thought of the question exactly as you had, I had not thought of the lienefit of the running streams to the lover swinging on the sympathizing gate, pleading with the obdurate Palatka girl, but I am glad you thought of it and wrote about it. Your article has the true ring, and will doubt less lead even to the wedding ring. But there is another side from which the matter may be viewed, and I want to tell yon just how a doctor looks at it. He sees in the stagnant water of the ditches, with their accumulated filth, under the burning rays of a semi-tropical sun, the very conditions most favor able to putrefaction, and the generation and exhalation of poisonous gases, which, in various ways, find access into the human system. He not only sees these conditions, but he sees tlie results of these conditions at the bedside of the sick; one cannot see these dark, grim, filthy looking places without instinc tively holding his breath and hur rying away. And as summer ad vances these will become more and more harmful, and will be most active in the production of disease. Then, as you wisely and practically ask, why can not we have the "living waters," the "limpid streams," the "musical mur murs," the "babbling brooks," the "dewy kisses," not only for the benefit of the swinging lovers, but also for the protection of the innocent babes, the lovely children, the obdurate maidens, the devoted mothers, and even, (although of minor importance), the fathers, hus bands, lovers and creatures. .
