Allen, of Fruit land, was in town yesterday laying in Hupplies and greeting his friends. Maj. J. D. Ilollister came up yesterday from Orange City, and was with his friends during the day. We regret to learn of the death of the infant child of Rev. J. W. Folsom. which occurred at Welaka on Tuesday last. Mosquitoes are more bloodthirsty thin year than usual, evert if tfiey are not so numerous as they have been in former seasons. Yesterday was what is termed in these parts a .very quiet day. There was but little stirring around, and those who were moving about did not.seetu to lie in much of a hurry. The new moon is now smiling placidly above us, and young lovers, old bache lors and gay widowers, will soon be en joying all the privileges a bright moon light night brings. Property owners and housekeepers should not fail to clean up their premises forthwith. Rigid sanitary measures will be enforced during the summer months. and if the work is begun early it can be kept up at smaller expense and less trouble. Major W. P. Coujier yesterday moved into his elegant residence on the corner of Emmet t and Dodge streets, which he recently pnrcliasexl of Dr. A. L. Cole. lie has one of the finest and cosiest houses in the city. When nothing happens, all the chest nuts but recently hauled over, too dull to be witty, and the printers ustairs calling for "copy," what is a reorter to do? If this page proves too dull, read over the telegrams, which are always bright and interesting, Mr. M. Loeb returned yesterday from New York, to which (mint he accom panied his wife, who sailed for Germany a few days since. Mr. Ia-Y says that it is hotter in New York than it is in Pa latka, and that the people suffer a great deal more from the heat. At a meeting of the I-adies Aid So ciety, held at the residence of Mrs. 15. J. Grooms on Tuesday night, all arrange ments were made for a grand moonlight excursion, to he given on the evening of Thursday, June 2. The excursion will be given for the benefit of the Church, and will no doubt attract a large number of people who will like to sa-nd an evening pleasantly on the water. The ugly looking spiders which are so plentiful in all our houses, are not so innocent and harmless as many people suppose them to be. A New York paper gives the following account of the death of a child in tliat city from the bite of a spider. The paper says : "Frit Kibitz. aged eighteen months, while playing about on the floor in the apartments of his parents, 650 Fifth street, yesterday. was bitten by a spider and died from the effects of the bite in a few hours after wards. The mother of the child, who was busily engaged in washing, heard him scream out suddenly with pain and found a small, short-legged, dral (-col ored spider crawling on his arm. The woman killed the insct ami thought no more about the matter until an hour afterwards, when she found that the child'sjeft hand was swollen to twice its usual size. Soon after the wrist negan to swell and a physician was summoned He found that the child had been bitten by the spider and applied antidotes. The child's arm continued to swell despite the doctor's efforts, and shortly after noon the little one died in great agony, Number the Houses. While so many improvements are lad ing talked of for the city, and such an effort being made to put it in good shae to catch and profit by the boom that is to come next winter, the question of numbering the houses should not be lost sight of. As matters now stand, with tlie resilient portion of the city so thickly built up it is almost im possible for any one not intimately ac quainted with the city to find any given house. If all would unite in this move ment, it would cost each houseliolder but a trifling sum, say 25 cents, to get his place nuuiltered. The benefits to lie derived from numbered house can read ily be appreciated and needs no argu ment to gain it consideration. Ladies will find relief from headache, costiveness, swimming in the head, colic, sour stomach, restlessness, indigestion, constant or periodical sick headaclies. weakness in the back or kidneys, pain in the shoulders and different parts of the body, a feeling of lassitude ai.d despond ency, by taking Simmons Liver Regu lator. It is not unpleasant, is purely vegetable, and is not injurious to the most delicate constitution. A NEWTOWN FIRE. T Ha i f MUtM Cooper mm Aral Jjmm Bama. At 10:30 o'clock last night the fire and church bells rang out the fire alarm, wad brought a large number of our citizens into the streets. A bright blaze was seen over in Newtown and when the people arrived there, it was found that the new two-story dwelling of Milton Cooper, a well known colored man, was in flames, which, however, had gained such headway that no effort was made to save the building. The house had just been built, and was hardly finislied, and its loss will fall very heavy on Mil ton, as we understand that he had no in surance on the property. The house was located on Main street, facing the Florida Southern Kailway, and between Ilapgood and Jones streets, and in a thickly settled neighbor hood. The-heat of tlie burning building was intense, and the clouds of flying sparks and burning shingles, literally covered the roofs of the cabins on the railroad. The "oil house, located very near, was also in great danger of catching from the flying iqiarks. but tlie colored men on the roofs with nns and brooms, w ith the assistance of an ir regular bucket brigade, kept the flames down as the roofs would catch. Tlie wiml was from the west, ami the flames leaped over from Cooler's house to that of At ki Lee, and it was soon burned. Luckily all the furniture ami vlu:illfH in this house "had been re moved and the loss will not amount to a great deal. Tlie fire is said to have originated from a lamp exploding in the kitciien of Mil ton Coojier. where it was left burning on tlie floor. Tlie hose companies succeed ing in getting water to the premises at tout the time the Ci toper liouse fell in, ami succeeded in saving the new house of Brown Singleton, which was situated only a few feet away. Tlie water pres sure was very wean, ami tne sireaui could not be thrown any distance, as the water had to I carried from Lemon street across two blocks. Considerable excitement w as created bv the report tliat a child was locked in tme of cabins aUmt to catch tire, and a rush was made to break it oen. but the report proved to be unfounded, as the liouse was tilled with frantic women at the time. The fire laddies, though "short on water, did some gallant work, and saved considerable prorty. COUNCIL MEETING. The Bnaid Pauses the Health Ordiaanro and Orders a Bill Paid. The adjourned meeting of the City Council at the Council Chamlier yester day afternoon, at 6 o'clock, was attended by all the memliers of the Board, ami quite a numlier of the memliers of the Board of Trade were also present. Tlie first thing that came up for con sideration was a communication signed by Dr. John G. Ames, secretary, notify ing the Council that a Board of Health for Palatka and Putnam County had lieen organized, a sufficient numlier of gentlemen having been commissioned by the Governor for the purpte. In the name of the Board of Health he asked the co operation of the City Council, and noti fied tliat laxly that any suggestions it might make woiihf receive due atten tion. This communication was discussed by the Board, President Boyd speaking in the niost complimentary terms of such an organization, and suggesting that the Council appoint one of its memliers as city health officer. Tlie communication was ordered tiled. Tlie special bu&iness of the meeting, to consider the health ordinance offered by the Board of Trade at the meeting on the previous evening, was then taken up. The ordinance provides that the Council shall elect a health officer for each year, and such officer shall have entire control of the sanitary affairs of the city. He is empowered to employ two instiectors, and he and the inspectors shall have authority to ent and examineall houses or premises i the city and tinier all nuisances removed as well as to look after all other affairs pertaining to the health of the city. Tlie health officer will receive a salary of $150 ier year, and the inswctors ft per day for each actual day s service. The ordinance was unanimously passed and now goes to the Mayor for his si, nature. On motion the Clerk was authorized to draw a warrant for $50 in ayment for balance due taty Attorney W. II. Wigg on salary. The Board adjourned until Tuesday night. The rutuam-Xarion Count; Line. Syracuse. Fla., Slay 24. ititr i the Itthitktt Xrtm. We have noticed a piece in Tlie Weekly News in regard to the profiosed bills now liefore the Legislature, for a new county line. The residents of this place are very much exercised over iU Tlie present county line is not as good as it might be, cutting across the sections diagonally, but the new Une will lie far worse, as it throws a rtion of this set tlement (nearly half the residents) into Marion County, which is very objection able, as they will either have to goto Pa latka and then by rail to Ocala. ur across the country with team, a distance of thirty or fortv miles, to reach their county seat. We think the line should run down the range line, lietween ranges 25 and 26, to the south line of section IS aud then east to Lake George. Leaving the north half of the township 13, range 36 east, in Putnam County. Our Representative should look into our interests, as we earnestly protest against entringMarton County. Yours very truly.

Several of these people are so fatuous as to rejoice at tlie prosiect of walls that must shut out the oroductkins of our own ctaintry, if they are ever erected. AX ODD WEDDING INCIDENT.

The gentleman replied that he knew him, and after a walk through the grove started to return with Mr. Kdwurds ac eonimnied by Frank Smith. A few rods from the house Mr. Gates asked Mr. Kd wards to introduce him to Mr. Smith, which he ditl with the astonishing in formation that Mr. Gates was his unt ie his mother's brother. A return was at once made to the htaise ami the same revelation mat le to Mrs. Iurdy. What followetl neeils no jii to tlew riU-.

It was full of thorns and pit-falls. He was surprised after fifty years exs-riencc, that there were as many good Ihivs as there are. He gave the origin of the term "Sowing Wild Oats." It originated in Germany three centuries ago. At tliat time a blight fell upon the rye crop, con verting it into something resembling a wiltl. ol nit ix ions grass called wild oats. The sMir js-ople ground and ate it ami it m itoiied tlieiu unto death. l-ing as fatal in its effects as plagues. The next sea son wie farmers sent abroad ami pro cured pure and beallhy seed. The im provident, howeer, used their wild oats, and suffering and death naturally ensued. After a while the term sowing wiltl oats I t-a I in- a synonym of all kind of vices, and has so continued until the present time. And. whoever sows wild oats, garners suffering, sorrow and death. There is a prevailing impression among l.os and young men that they can how w iltl outs and quit without being tlain attl. Yon can't do it! The cases where it may have la-en done are exceptions to the ruie. I'll tell you why you can't quit. It is on account of the force of habit. Habit is one of th.i worst if ty rants, if it once gets full control of your will power you are helpless. The baby studies as stain as he opens his eyes. He learns by object lessons, and after instructors should teach liim in the same manner. ImMiitant matters, alsnit which parents are silent with their chil dren through false modesty, children learn from impure liM ami corrupt com panions. The father may do some things his child cannot. The use of tobacco is a very extravagant and till 1 1 y habit for a man, but a hoy should not touch it While you laiy's are growing you should tlo nothing to disturb your growth. To bacco is very injurious system, ami in torfercs with the mental development of almy. The habitual child smoker, as a rule, makes the habitual dunce. Tobacco should never la used, if at all, until af ter the physical organism is fully devel-ora-d. What is true of tobacco is true of alcoholic drinks in a stronger sense. You say Isiys don't drink. I know they do. I haye seen young children drunk in their cradles, through the indiscretion and blunders of their nurses. A Lost Opportunitr. Aniericaii Matraziia-. Mr. George Washington Cole, of Chicago, didn't come home one evening at the pru.i -r time, nor the next day, am! Mrs. Cole, la-coming alarmed, liegan a search for him. She was not success ful, and after several days, as a last re sort, visititl the morgue. The keeper listened to her description, and then said he thought he had a subject that answered to it. The wife desired to look at the Issly, ami she was shown into the dead house. After viewing the subject aiintetl out t-i her very intently for several minutes, Mrs. Cole burst into tears ami declared that the l-sly was that of her late hus band. But in order to assure herself that she hail made no mistake, she re quested the ki-eja-r of the morgue to turn the Issly over, ami see if there was a large scar am the Uick of the neck. As be proceeded to do so, a set of false teeth fell out of the mouth of the corpse upon the marble slali. "Stop I" exclaimed Mrs. Cole, wiping away her tears; ' George never wore false teeth." "You blamed fisil !" growled the keep er of the morgue, addressing the corpse, as he roughly threw it lnu.k in place anil picked up the false teeth; "if ytsi had only kept your mouth shut you might have hail a decent burial."
