The police caught a negro asleep in a box car Wednesday night, and yesterday morning he was sentenced to live days on the streets on the charge of trespass ing. Rev. C. V. Waugh, of Gainesville, will preach at the Baptist Church in this city on Sunday morning and evening. The public generally is invited to attend these services. The Musical Society met last night at the Putnam House, and sjx'nt the even ing very pleasantly. The usual pro gramme was gone through with, anil aome good music was the result. Now that the Legislature has settled the Senatorial question, it is in order to pay all bets. A great ileal of money as well as a numlier of hats and such articles will change hands in Palatka. The red bugs are said to lie more nu merous this year than ever before, and the picnickers declare that they can find more places to take hold on a body than any other instrument of torture on eartlu Peaches are coming in in small quanti ties, and are now selling at twenty cents a dozen. A quantity of wild plums were offered for sale yesterday at ten cents a nuart. They were brought from somewhere up the river. An elegant little ice cream parlor has been added to the attractions of the Ban gor House, which is open at all times to the public. The room is nicely and com fortably furnished, and will no doubt prove quite a resort for ladies and gen tlemen who enjoy eating the cold luxury. Engineer Sheehan, known as the wild Irishman of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway, will take charge of one of the locomotives on the fast Cu ban mail train on that road. He is said to be the best engineer in the State, and can get more sjietHi out of an engine than anyone. His trains are always on time. James Brown, the well known colored city scavenger, was married to Amy Dickerson, of Ocala, at the colored Bap tist Church in this city, at ":'M o'clock ihi uigut. xne uiurriage was quite an event in colored society, and the cere mony was witnessed bv a larce number of the friends of the contracting parties. Wednesday night a thief went into the residence of Dr. S. C. Burland, and stole Mr. H. H. Bennett's liest iair of Sunday breeches. He was careful to re move the suspenders, and did not seem to want anything else, as that was the only article missing. He entered the house by forcing one of the windows open. Manager Heston. of the telegraph office, is having a cat-rigged loat. re cently purchased by him. overhauled by the Heston Bros., on the beach skirting the Hammock. The boat promises to lie a fast one, and its owner is quite proud of it. Its trial trip will probably tie to Welaka on Sunday next, weather and tide favoring. The schooner, Marcus Edwards, ar rived here yesterday, having sailed up the river from the bar. She has on board BJveral tons of pipe for the Palatka (.as Light and Fuel Coniiwny, iron for the St. John's and Halifax Railroad, and a general cargo of merchandise consigned to Capt. R. J. Alaai. where the cargo is being discharged. We learn that Mr. W. J. Webb is pre paring to erect a one story brick store room on Lemon street, just opposite B. J. Grooms grocery store. The flooring is already on the ground, and the house will lie built of brick now lieing made at the Rice Creek brick yards. It will be a handsome little building, and will, no doubt, prove a good business stand. Lott Allen, Jr., son of Lott Allen, of Interlachen, was married on Wednesday last to Miss Sadie DeLong, at the home of the bride's parents at Candler, on the Florida Southern Railway. Thursday night the happy couple were tendered a reception at the home of the groom's pa rents, which was largely attended and highly enjoyed by their many friends. We wish the young coupleja long and happy life. Messrs. Joseph & Husson liave just completed one of the most complete and accurate county maps ever made in Florida. It is very large in size, but it gives every town and village, every sec tion and quarter section and lot, as well as every stream and railroad. They will j senu we map zsortn m a short, time, in order to get bids for printing it. The aaapfwill probably tie printed and on sal by next fall, arid it will tie of great value to the citizens of the county. The business men of Columbus, Ohio have had a largf number of souvenir books of that city printed for free distri bution, as an advertisement of that city's many advantages. It is filled with sketches of the principal streets, business and manufacturing enterprises, private residences, parks, etc., and makes beautiful little book. In the back of the book is a well written description of the city, its enterprises and its business. Such a book for Palatka, distributed throughout the country, would be great advertisement of our city, and we mention this enterprise of the Columbus men merely to call the attention of our Board of Trade to the scheme. As will be seen from the following paragraph clipped from yet ten lay's Sa vannah A'etrs, our old friend 51. L. Har nett has again been honored by hisbroth- er hotel keepers. He is well known to the traveling public, and his Florida friends congratulate him on his fourth elec tion: "Mr. M. L. Harnett, proprietor of the Harnett House of this city, has been elected A ice-President of the Hotel Men's Mutual Benefit Association of the United States which met at Washington last week. This is the fourth time that Mr. Harnett lias tieen elected to the Vice- Presidency of the Association, and it is an honor which navannah ana tlie gen ial proprietor of the Harnett House fully appreciate. The A association is composed of representative hotel men from all over the United States and is one of the most imiiortant hotel men's organizations in existence." SUNDAY SCHOOL PICNIC A Large Crowd. Splendid Dinner, ocm1 Time. and a At a little after 7 o'clock yesterday morning the members of the Methodist Sunday School, and their friends, left for Racy Point, where they went to hold their annual May picnic. There were about one hundred and fifty of the pic nickers, and they were supplied with quite an array of baskets loaded with the good things tliat go to make one of the chief attractions of a day in the woods. Racy Point is a beautiful place, and well suited for picnic purposes, and the little ones yesterday made the best of their holiday, and to say that they en joyed the day thoroughly only half tells the story. Early in the morning, while shooting a little single barreled gun, the young son of Mr. Joseph Lynn was pretty severely hurt about the face and head by the gun exploding. It seems the boy had loaded it entirely too heavy, and being one of those light cheap guns it burst, bruising his face and filling it with powder, but doing him no serious injury. He hail a narrow escape as did several other txiys who were standing by him when the gun exploded. Another boy, whose name we did not learn, fell overboard but was pulled out none the worse for his bath. A friend who attended the picnic handed us the following account of the day's doings, last night : Editor the IuUttka Aran. The picnic given to-day by the Meth odist Sunday School is a thing of the past, and like almost all of our days of pleasure, had its bitter as well as sweet. A few minutes before Ha.HL the trim steamers Princess and Escort of the fleet of genial, hearty, good-natured. Commodore J. E. Lucas, with a large lighter between them, pulled out mid stream, and stemmed for Racy Point with as bright, happy, pretty, (meaning this word for the ladies of course) and healthy an average 140 ieople as can lie found in the country. The ever genial, thoughtful, prudent and sensible Sain towered among the "wee folks' as a giant of authorita tive thoughtfulnec, reminding one of an imaginative picnic that might have lwen given by the lamented Brigliam Young for the benefit of his "numerous and in teresting family." But even his care could not or unfortunately did not prevent what came very near being a sail re minder of the epitaph: "Hoy fun Ilroiitfht irun t.uu mittt Hoy dust." Mr. Lynn's little boy Auric, in at tempting to have a little fun, overloaded a gun, and its bursting tilled his face with jiowder and cut a little place over his right eye. Temporarily it threw a damper over the enjoyment of the om pany until it was found that no serious damage was done when "all went merry as the marriage lieUs" except with little Auric, whose face oined him a good deal. Of course the sympathy of all went out for him and for his mother as well, wtio suffered a considerable shock at the news before she was aware of the extent of the damage. The day was spent in swinging, play ing, romping, eati ng. laughing ami gen eral merrymaking, and when the bouts whistled to leave it was all too soon for many light hearts and laughing eves. Yours truly, Jiukt. P. S. I forgot to say that Mangold artist took the "figger of the crowd as they were ready to start . and that Mrs. Loomis took another at the Point. Yours truly, J. P. S. It is also well to mention that the prettv little sailing lio.it Tidal Wave sailed splendidly "under bare poles and kept right along side the steamer all the way down and back. Yours truly, J P. S. Capt. Lucas is a hunt on Sunday Iscliool picnics and lavs himself out to entertain, doing it right royally. ours truly. J. She Wanted the Train to Stop. As the early north bound fast mail on the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Kauway came tiiunuering along, two hours behind time, and was approach ing the station at Como, on Thurstlav morning about 7 o'clock, the engineer. fireman and conductor were nearly thrown off their balance by the waving of a gentleman's laundered garment, the frantic movements of a petite female. and the yelling of a small lioy seated on a large basket. It was evidently a signal to stop, and it was otieved. As the con ductor stepfied olf the train, a laugh from the passengers came from the win dows, and the conductor hurried to ex tricate the petite female, laundered gar ment, small Imiv and large basket from a mix up into which they had tumbled in their haste to conceal the signal before getting aboard the train. Jnne Outing ef the Palatka Fleet. Messrs. Gillis. Merryday, Montmolin, and others of our local yacht men. are arranging a June outing of the Palatka fleet. These gentlemen propose to take what is known as the inside route to Nassau and spend several days in fishing and having a good time generally. They express the hoi that every boat, accom panied by its owner, may be induced to join tnem. anu promise ail a nmt n. - , , " I joyable tune. The fleet will probably j sau auoui J une i. i Sanitary Inspection. Mayor Teasdale has heard many com plaints since he has been in office of the sanitary condition of the city, and to satisfy the public mind as to just how the matters stood in this time be ap pointed an agent, a few days since, to go over the city and inspect the premises in the more thickly settled portions. The inspector visited about two hun dred houses, and out of that number re ported the sanitary condition of sixty being very lil. in the rear of some restaurants he found things in bad shape, the fish scales, chicken heads and other refuse lying about in festering abun dance. On some of the premises, he found dead rats, chickens, and other things just as liad, and reports nearly all the out houses in a filthy condition. He also found many ditches full of mud and refuse, in many places the heat poured down on stagnant water and re fuse matter. The above state of affairs is argument sufficient for our authorities to take some active st to improve our sanitary con dition in order to maintain the present good health of the city, for if this filth is left to bake and rot in the hot summer sun it will surely breed disease. The articles recently published in THE News urging the use of the water which might be made to flow so abundantly from our artesian wells through the streets, have attracted much attention, and our iieople have liecouie aroused on the subject. The Council will consider the question at its next meeting, and will no doubt provide some means by which the water may le made to sub serve the sanitarv interests of our city. Some Fine Onions. Aliout one-half bushel of the finest Bermuda onions ever seen in Palatka are now on exhibition at the Palatka Board of Trade rooms. They were grown by P. Barrentine. at his noted truck farm at Buffalo Bluff and they were large and pretty enough to bring tears to the dry- est eyes. Mr. Barrentine is one of the most suc cessful truck farmers in Florida, and all bis productions excel. With good land as a foundation, his intelligent mode of cultivation brings out results that are as tonishing, even in this productive sec tion. The onions are worth a visit and all interested can call at the Board of Trade rooms and see them. PERSONALS. Kev. J. II. .Moore, ol Keuka, was in town yesterday, and gave us a pleasant call. He reiMirts his section lovely. Messrs. Win. M. Haughton and Wm. 31. Husson will leave to-Jay for a short visit to Washington. Their trip has no political significance. J. W. Marriott and wife, and Mr. Joe Murrion left yesterday for Highlands, N. J., where they will remain for the sum mer. They will return to Palatka aliout the first of October. Major A. S. Washburn, proprietor of of the Saratoga Hotel, left yesterday for New York and Saratoga, where he will conduct his hotel in iierson for the sum mer. We shall luiss the genial Major, and hoie he may return to us early in the fall. MARKET REPORTS. IINAMIAl. Nw York. May I Ext-nan ire tint-hanired 4l 4SM.
