His new and commodious place will be a general market for our citizens, and is now well stocked with choice beef, mut ton, pork, poultry, fish, etc. There was quite an amusing little scene on Lemon street yesterday. The object of the fun was a commercial tour ist from Jacksonville, who evidently had been imbibing to a greater extent than he was able to navigate under. He got up the street as far as Merriday's fruit store, where he lost complete balance of bis head and turned out into the street and started round in a ring, until finally he gave up with tlte exclamation, "Oh, Lord, I can't go where I want to." The Board of Trade is receiving let -ters of inquiry as to the business done in Palatka and the surrounding country, every day. A letter was received quite recently from a gentleman in Newton, Kan., inquiring about the broom manu facture in this State, After looking up the statistics of the business done in that line and the consumption of brooms, it la found there were 18,000 brooms used in this State in the last year, and the greater portion of this article was ship ped from tlie North. This is as fine an opportunity aa could be asked for that line of manufacture. They are con tinually sending out statistics to enquiries. THE CITIZENS MEETING. BesoIatloB Aaopte Favarf ar the Flor ida Heather Tervlaatloa. A large and enthusiastic meeting of the citizens was held, last evening, at the Armory Hall for the purpose of ex pressing the public sentiment of the town in regard to the- proposed bridge to be bailt across the SC Johns by the St. Johns and Halifax Railroad and the St. Angnstineand Palatka Railway. Mr. Martin Griffin was appointed president and C J. Joseph, secretary. The meeting was opened by the read ing of the following letter from Mr. R. R. Reid: Palatka, Fla., June 23. To the Hon. Chairman of the Citiaens Meeting-: Dear Sir : I have the honor to say to to the meeting of the citizens assembled that I have tendered to the railroad companies, who contemplate building the bridge over the St. Johns River at this place, the right of way sufficient for the railway trucks, carriages and pedestrians through my property, north of my residence and grounds, and stated that I thought the city would give them permission to cross the streets west of me, running north to the river. I deem it my duty to make known to the meeting of tlie citi zens the offer I have made of the right of way for the benefit of the bridge, if constructed at that point, nearly opppo site the present depot of the St, Augus tine and Palatka Railway, in East Pa latka. The water is shoal a long way out from tlie west bank, and may lessen the expense in building a bridge there. I am, gentlemen, your obedient ser vant, R. R. Reid. The following resoltion was presented by Mr. L. C. Canova: "We, tlie citizens of Palatka, are in favor of a bridge at this point. We favor first that it terminate at the Florid: Southern. In the event this is not practioihle to the bridge company we favor any point in the city, provided the terminus is not located north of the Florida Southern dock." This resolution was adopted without a dissenting vote. Tlie following additional resolution was presented by Mr. Canova: "We, the citizens Of Palatka, do earn estly request tliat the bridge company will erect a driveway and foot path in connection with the bridge. "We furtlier request that the County CommiMsioners confer with tlie bridge company ami aid them in construction," This hitter resolution was unanimously adopted with applause. The meeting then adjourned to the ap parent satisfaction of all present. Mr. W. J. Jar is. General Superinten dent of tlie St. Augustine acd Palaika Rail way v waa present at the meeting and informed our reporter that his road had already made arrangements to act in conjunction with Mr. White's road (the St. Johns and Halifax Railway) in building the bridge and that the work would begin at an early date. Bat? J sice Oa a Rampage. A man by the name of John Day, by some means or other got, a little too much of the O, be joyful! under his vest yesterday, and turned the street into such a circus that officer Jook had to take him in out of tlie wet, and he had his hands full, as the gentleman of lively ttyirit protested. A YOUNG BOY KILLED. Kaaaway With aad Thrown Against a faaee. ViirreinMnulenee nt tac fWnfJcrt Xnm. Rrooksvillr. Fla., June 22. A sad accident occurred here this morning, which resulted in the death of Owen Clielf, twelve years old, son of A. N. Chelf , one of our prominent citizens. It apiears that Mr. Chelf and his two little hoys had driven up town early this morning, and were returning home, and were just driving through the gate when the horse became frightened and unman ageable for Owen, who was driving, and rushed madly across tlie orange grove, striking the fence on the opposite side and overturning the vehicle. Owen was hurled against the fence, where he was picked up and carried to the house in an insensible condition, from which he never revived, and died about 1 o'clock to-day. He . was a bright, and manly boy, ami his death hascast quite a gloom over onr town. Mr. Chelf also received serious injuries. Mm. Laagtry aatl Her Iavesdmeat.. Salt Lake Herald. The Jersey Lily ami her faithful at tendant. Freddy JelliarJ, were riding around town yesterday in an open ba rouche, the observed of all olwervers. Mr. Gehhard looked as calm and pro- ttrietorv as if he had been Mr. Langtry limself. On Tuesday afternoon the Lily, ae coniionied by her business manager, called at tlie office of Lynch A Kelsey to make some inquiries aiiout real estate in this city, the Lily, with her proverbial this city, the ith her proverbial shrewilneHH, having perceived the signs of the boom in the air. Yesterday sh looked at one or two prortie8 with Mr. Lynch, took notes and promised to corre SMnid further regarding them. J. K. Gillespie, hearing of the Lily's leaning towards a Salt Lake investment, waited on her ami allowed her and her manager a piece of business proierty on West Temple street, with which they appeared much struck, ami the bargain was final ly struck at the dejiot just before the Langtry- car rolled out for tlie West. Gillespie says he cannot give the lo-a-tion of the property or the price at pres ent, as the money was not hI over, lint he regards it as finally settled and exects to close the matter np my mail.

Masieale. Last night the Masieale met at the Putnam House at the usual hour. The regular order of business was transacted. There were thirteen new member en rolled since the last meeting, and six ap plications for membership were received. This organization is growing in popu larity, and it affords to all who enjoy aa evening of music and social inter coarse a delightful place to spend the summer evenings. The members are all taking a great in terest in the up-building of the society. There should be a large attendance on next Thursday evening, as the society is making preparations for a grand musical entertainment on that evening for the honorary members and their friends, each member being entitled to invite one friend to these special entertainments. Let all come out and be highly enter tained. More Improvements. In taking the round of the city we called at the gas bouse and found the Superintendent, Mr. Hayes, in his office, and the following was gathered during the conversation: The Gas Company have now under operation, and soon to lie completed, an elevated railway deeigned for the pur pose of unloading and carrying coal up to the coal sheds. . They have a dock 21x50 feet, which extends out in the river to such a distance as to afford the ves sels depth of water enough to land. At the outer edge of the dock there is an elevator to be arranged, so as to take the coal out of the bull of of the vessels and hoist it in large buckets to an eleva tion of atsiut thirty-five feet, where a large funnel is so fixed that the car may run directly under it and receive the coal, thereby enabling the cool to lie handled entirely by machinery. This mode of oieration enables them to un load from 2. to 300 tons of coal in a day. The coal sheds will be built half the length of the track, which is 500 feet, and it is estimated that they will hoi. I 1,200 tons. This will he quite a' con venience to our citizens, as there will al ways be a large supply of coal on hand, which will be sold at retail prices. 11AWTH0KNE. ittrmtmtmlrHtt nt tht fnUttka JVVitm.

ARE THEY MUMMIFIED AZTECS Strange Discovery by Miners ia a Toma ia New Mexico. A San Francisco disiatch to the New Yord Worhl says: Tliere is a stir in scientific circles over the advent of five mummified Aztecs supKMed to have been buried lino years. The group comprises two men, two women and a child. They were ditcovered some months ago by two miners, Dasty and Morris, in a hermetically sealed cave in the canon of the Gila River, on the boun dary line between Arizona and New Mexico. Tlie miners were prospecting and mrticed a place closed by human hands, lliey questioned the Indians, who declined to give any information, ami were opposed to any exploration. Watching their chances the prospec tors removed the otistructions to the rave. Huge boulders, bound by excel lent cement, liad to lie pried out of pla-e. A search for treasures was unsuccessful, but twenty feet from the mouth of the cave they found an Aztec mummy in sit ting Misture.the legs lientup after the cus tom of the race. Tlie hands were folded over the tsreast in the isture of a 1 ora tion facing tlie east. A furtlier search revealed otiier bodies. A mother and child were nestling together in a loving embrace. The bodies were removed to this city. They are in excellent ireser vation. notdiseiiilmwelled. and were evi dently mummified natr.ally. Tlie skin is tanned. The wmien retain tlieir long silken hair. Measurements by Dr. Paolo de Vecchi, of Turin University, and Dr. C M. Richter. of Berlin, made yester day conform to the historical descrition of Aztecs, and the general appearance and mode of burial, ami tlie surround ings identify the mummies with the an cient race. The bodies were covered with highly colored clothes, which crumbled on exfioeure. Three kinds were saved, two of a coarse material and one a deep blue, woven in diamond shapes. No implements or utensils were found. All the consuls here and many scien tific men inspected the mummies yes terday. Among those present were Henry A. Ward, of Rochester. N.
