VOLUME IV. PALATKA, FLORIDA, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 25, 1SS7. NUMBER 01. TH JACKSONVILLE. HORSEWHIPPED BT A MAYOR. PUNISHING A MERCHANT FOR GIV ING REIN TO HIS TONGUE. Tha Kn Theater I to B11IK as tfca Sita el the Ole One-The Sita lat4 tar Taeaty Year. SprekU to the Pahitka Sow. Jacksonville, June 21. Jacksonville is all agog with excitement, this morn ing, over the fact that J. E. T. Bowden, a prominent dry good merchant of this city, and mayor of the adjoining town of LaVilla, publicly horsewhipd S. Kitzewoller, one of the biggest property holders in Jacksonville and also one of the largest dry goods merchants here. The cause of the action was this : An effort was made a couple of days ago to give all the retail clerks in town a half holiday every Thnrsday afternoon, but Ritezwoller refused to comply. Bowden (Missed the store yesterday af ternoon, and remarked to one of the clerks that Ritewoller should close, and the Litter hearing the remark came up to Bowden and flatly refused, and at the same time roundly abused Bowden for saying anything aliout the matter, as he (Bowden) bail lost the resjct of the community by his action in permitting the prostitutes and gamblers of Jackson ville to settle in LaVilla, when these disreputable characters had been driven out of Jacksonville by Mayor Burbridge. Bowden at first stood the abuse quiet ly, and Kitzewoller taking courage at the former's silence finally intimated that Bowden had burned down his own store a couple of winters ago to get the insur ance. This lust charge was too much for the mayor of La Villa to stand, and he challenged his accuser out on the side walk where lie could "do hiui up," but Ritiewoller refused to come. Bowden then left but vowed he would horse whip Kitzewoller the first time he caught the latter on the street. This morning Bowden succeeded in meeting Kitzewoller on Bay street, near Keene's millinery establishment, and having a cowhide in his hand he grahlted Ritzewoller and gave him a ter rible licking. The assailed man fled howling with pain into Keene's millinery establishment pursued by the infuriated Bowden, who still kept plying the lash until bystanders interfered and sepa rated the two men. Bowden then left for his store and Kitzewoller returned to his. It is understood that the latter will take no steps to have Bowden arrested. Bowden is brother to the city editor of the Tiuieit-Vmon. A NEW THEATER. Since the burning of the Park Theater alxiut six weeks ago, Jacksonville has Ufn very much exercised over the building of a new theater anil it was feared that William Astor, the million aire owner of the lot where the former theater stood, would not rent the plot for twenty years. The directors were unwilling to build the theater unless Astor promised to lease. Several other sites were talked of but no definite action was taken, and it was feared that Jackson ville woidd be without a theater this season. Tonight, however, a telegram was received from Mr. Astor, who hail just returned from Euroi?, stating his willingness to rent the former site for twenty years at "tMOO yearly. On this information the directors will meet to morrow and immediately liegin opera tions for a new building. NOTES. Jacksonville was invaded to-night by the Fire Company of Koine, Ga., who have been on a week's excursion. The conquiny is in charge of Chief Seay, and will prolmbly visit St. Augustine to morrow, then return home. The South Florida Railway will, after next Monday, run only one through train daily from Sanford to Tampa, on account of the quarantine regulations.

June 24. Dr. Mo reno, the Cuban who denied the exist ence of yellow fever on the island, was called in on two cases, one a negro named Cherry, the otlier a white man named Warrington. Dr. Moreno dosed them, no one knows for wliat. Seeing them get worse he grew frightened and abandoned them. Dr. Plummer, a prac tising physician, who was mayor of the city, was called in and found it yellow fever and called Dr. Jose DeArmona, one of the leading Cuban physician, who decided it fever. In the case of Cherry, the negro, Dr. Armona was called. He saw it was fever and find ing him Moreno's atient he called a con sultation of all the leading physicians who made a report to Dr. Porter, Presi dent of the Board of Health. Dr. Porter had Moreno arrested for violating ordi nance 18, tules and regulations of the Board of Health of Monroe County not reputing a case. Much to the surprise of all, Moreno waived a preliminary ex amination and was bound over to the next term of the Circuit Court under a five hundred dollars bond. Noted Cuban physicians deny substan tially Moreno's theory. I lave seen Moreno's diploma issued by the Charles ton, S. C, Medical School. It is gener ally thought strange tliat a man who cannot even now speak English could obtain a certificate of an American p Di versity. Moreno has lieen making, through an evening paper, severe crim inal charges against the Board of Health, but it is asserted that he is duped by an unprincipled fellow who takes ail vantage of Moreno's ig norance of the English language to abuse the health lioard over Moreno's name. It is proliable that a criminal libel suit will result, as Moreno's asser tions have been sent broadcast through out tlie State. I have obtained a letter from Ihr. Mamuel S. Castellanos. Sub Delegate (Sencral of Medicine, of Culia. to Ihr. Porter which will apjxnr in to morrow's Eisuator. rrsiwIutHHi from the Spun'sh. Havaxa. June 22. Mr. Joseph Pirter, M. D. Dear Sir I acknowledge tlie receipt of your esteemed letter of yesterday , and having fully noted it.- contents. 1 now answer you. As Sul-Delegate (ieneral of Medicine I have all the facilities to enable me to inform you regarding the professors of medicine who practice, ami of tliose who have practised in Cuba, Only the following have diplomas of physicians: Don Anton ;o Moreno y Ja vin. forty-two years of age and a native of Havana; Don Jose Tomas Moreno y CelialliM, thirty-seven years of age, na tive of Ilavaa.il. w ith diploma of M. D., graduated in the University of Barce lona, November 13. 1W7J. Being informed alxiut the antecedents of the Mr. Moreno who practices in Key West, I have obtained the following? First. He was taken by the Military Hospital of Havana as practicante. an aps-entice practicing under a master, an employment that only required him to know how to reiui and write, but no scientific knowledge whatever for he only had to do what the phvsieians or dered him to, the same as if he was a nurse or servant. Second. That it is not know n where he studied medicine ami acquired the di ploma of doctor he boasts of. but it is iositively known that it was neither in Cuba nor Spanish universities. Third. That the iierson sresiding in Ha vana, professors of medicine who have lived in Key West, maintain not only that he is not a physician, but further more that he kicks all knowledge of the faculty. Fourth. That no matter what opinion he may express aliout yellow fever, it is not worthy of being entertained with scientific views. Fifth, Tluit the fime aforesaid persons have considered him only as a character without any medical knowledge. This is all the information I can give you at present in my capacity of Sub Delegate of Medicine. If you desire any other information please let me know and I shall furnish same to you with pleasure.

Ha Knkn I nt Print Against Konatrud Oprna HI Miiul. New York Heral.L Richmond, V a.. June 22. Oeneral Julial Early publishes a letter this even ing in reply to the recent utterance of (ieneral Rosser in regard to his (Early's) conduct in burning the city of Cham liershurg. Pa., during the war. Rosser said Early ought to lie hanged by the people of that city if lie should visit it now. (ieneral Early justifies the burn ing as an act of retaliation, in strict ac-cis-dance with the laws of war, for out rages committed under the orders of Federal generals in the South. Notable among tliese were the burning of private dwellings ami library institutions at Cluirlestown. W. Va.; Iexington.Lynch burg, Newton and other phices in Vir ginia by (ieneral David Hunter. Referring to Rosser. Early says: "Rosser lias shown his utter disregard for tlie truth and I have fully demonstra te! the falsity of many of his statements. Having previously figured as a falsifier of history, be has recently appeared in the role of a consummate ass, and it must lie confessed tliat lie has proved himself an adeirt in tluit character. It seems that a residence of several years in the Northwest and tlie accumulation of con siderable property, by means best known to himself, has had the effect of convinc ing him that the South was All wrong in tlie struggle she made for independence and self-government, and that it was fortunate tluit his mighty efforts for four years in her cause failed of success. Early further says tliat if some of the Southern renegades, would, like Judas Iscariot. hang themselves, tlie act might be regarded as some atonement for their aostacy and the most creditable they could now perform. A Wife Nwlmr Hurfd. St. Lore, June 34. Alfred Blunt the wife-murderer, was banged here at 6:35 this morning. Life was extinct in six minutes and fifteen seconds after the drop felL His neck was broken. He was thirty-two years old, a hunchback and maintained that his wife despised him because of his deformity.

The Africaners! a Macaaaical Cellege at Sa hara Baraa-Taa Lees Nearii 1300.000. Auburn, Ala., June 24. Tlie State Agricultural and Mechanical College with the chemical laboratory and other apparatus was burned to-day. The build ing originally cost over $60,000. The in surance was $30,000. A new building will be erected at once. MovruoMEKY, Ala., June 24. Tlie burning of tlie Agricultural ami Me chanical College at Auburn, to-day, was a great calamity. Tlie institution was established under a grant by Congress of lands to found such colleges in several States. Its annual income from this source is f20.0u0 nd f lO.INtu from the State. Tlie buildings were given to the State by the Metliodist Episcoital Church and originally cost $H5,ooO. Tlie splendid chemical lal "oratory, to gether with the natural history, geologi cal and botan ical cabinets and apparatus of all sorts hail been gathered through many years and were exceedingly valua ble, many of the calanet sieciniens f e ing very rare. The total value of tlie aparatus, cabinets and contents de stroyed was over 1100,000. Tlie build ing with its improvements was also vp hied at over 100,000. All is a total loss, except a little chemi cal apparatus and the contents of tlie Treasurer's and Psident's office. The fire broke out aliout 10 o'clock this morning in the State Cliemical Labora tory, which hail been used the day lie fore. The first assistant in this depart ment sleeps in the building, and at 13 o'clock last night made an examination and found all right everywhere. No doulit is entertained tliat the fire was caused by rats gnawing matches. The insurance is $:!0,00O. The building will be replaced at once. The mechanical laltoratory is in a searate building, and was uninjureiL BUSINESS PROSPEROUS. Xotwlthntaadiaa; all th Ranted Coram Trad Seaa Haalthjr. New York. June 24. R. (i. Dun & Co.s weekly review of trade fisr the week ending to-day says: Tlie withdrawal of funds from New York to meet the immediate needs at the West has caused a temporary stringency here which speculators have magnified, but foreign exchange is so near the ship ping point and tlie supply of unused funds abroad is so large that relief would come quickly if needs here should be come serious. Moreover, the large dis bursements by the Treasury in July are now close at hand. In tlie lialf yearly settlements, in tlie struggle to liquidate enormous speculations and in prepara tions for summer dullness, however, there may lie some pressure for money luring the remaining days of June. Tlie Treasury has paid out fsoo.OoO more money than it has taken in, this week, besides increasing its deioits with tlie Imnks aliout a million. At nearly all other points money is rejiorted in good supply but Chicago excliange on New York is at seventy-five cents dis count. The demands from St. Louis are also felt and money is rather close at Cleveland with exchange scarce and firm at Milwaukee. The Cincinnati banks were generally well supplied. having anticipated trouble, but tlie ex tent of the rottenness in the Fidelity was not realized and some trouble for its stock holders under the double liability law is now apprehended. STATE OF TRADE ENCOl'RAOINU. ( ieneral rejiorts of business at nearly all points are highly encouraging. No trouble from the wheat collapse is re orted except at the points already named and the increasing prosiect of good crops adds to the prevailing confi dence. Collections are generally fair or good ami the volume of business is large for the season. Liquidation in cotton proceeds slowly but prices have declined tc for the week with sales of aliout MOO.OOO bales. Settlements are profiosed by the broken firms in coffee. Wheat has fallen about 5c. though a par tial corner in June still makes quota tions here 6c. or more aliove tliose for July. Pork products yield liltle though still held at Chicago aliove tlie level else where. In the stink market liquidation has been the feature, though the declines have not lieen large or rapid. Distrust of thirties ami securities thought to be even remotely connected with the Cin cinnati speculation is obvious, and there is less confidence as to tlie effects of the Iuter-State act. Under all tlie circum stances tlie strength of the market is a surprise, especially when it is reniein liered that tlie new securities for several hundred millions have lieen listed this year. The iron market waits the outcome of the lalior contests. Tlie coke strike has not entirely ended and Pittsburg em ployers have voted to reject the demand for an increase of wages estimated at fif teen per cent. Railroad building seems to have been checked a little but tlie iresent demand for most iron ami steel products seems better. Tlie Iron Asso ciations protest to the Treasury against undervaluations ami recent clatsifica- tions, under which imports of ircn have been heavy. Other labor contests are disapearing. Chicago bricklavers ami Worcester shoemakers abandon their demands. Real estate at the West is still unsually active and though the bloom is off the boom, so to speak, no visible reaction in prices is to lie expected at present. BUSINESS FAILURES. The business failures occurring throughout the country during the last week were: For the United States. 171; Canada. 36. or a total of 197 against 313 last week ami 173 the week previous. The corresponding week of last year there were 163 failures, 138 in the Fni ted States and 24 in Canada. ST. AIGTSTINE. Jattcre aad Coaaaaltteaa for the Hegatta St. JoMpk CmaawMMarat.

It is difficult to estimate with accuracy the full extent of the financial loss resulting from the strike which the bricklayers declared off last night. Tlie local loss in wages can I closely computed and the Chi cago merchants can estimate the amount of trade whieh has lieen sacrificed. Aside from this, however, the miners are idle in Pennsylvania; the saw mills and their oiieratives in Michigan and Wisconsin; thousands of men are thrown out of work in the stone quarries ad jacent to this city; the pressed brick trade is affected all over the United States; thousands of dollars have lieen lost to the railroad comjianies; every branch of manufac ture identified in any way with the building trades is a direct sufferer from the strike; a careful estimate made of the loss in wages to striking and locked out employes in tlie vicinity of Chicago alone foots up nearly two and one-half million dollars. It would lie difficult to name a trade or lusiness not directly a sufferer from this prot rai t.il strike. OBJECTED TO FOREIGNERS. Mar th Six Hixlml Mrm Slrika A calm Ma. Philadelphia, June 24. At the At lantic Oil Refinery, at Point Breeze, trouble lias been Is-ewing for some time aliout half a dozen Hungarians, who had been put to work by tlie superintendent cleaning stills. The older still cleaners were angered at this, and demanded the discharge of tlie foreigners amlNilso cer tain changes in the manner in which tlie work should la? done. The superintendent declined to accede to the demands and the men went out. The employes in otlier departments this morning reiterated tlie demand for the discharge of tlie Hungarians, and also demanded the reinstatement of tlie men who had gone out. Tlie officials of the company declared that they would not permit the men to dictate to them how business should be run. and the employes, to the number of 635, at once went out on a strike.

Chicago, June 24. Tlie schooner Racine, the crew of which rescued tlie survivors of the Cham plain disaster, ar rived here last evening. At the time the Cliamplain caught fire tlie Racine was lying alongside a pier six miles from Cliar'evoix. Capt. Hanson woke up, saw the burning steamer, and sent a part of his crew in a yawl to rescue the perishing passengers. With the re mainder of his crew he ran down the the beach to an old fish boat, launched it and started for the reck. The boat I tad not la-en used for a long time and leaked. When alxsit half way out to the Cliamplain, Capt. Hanson came across a young woman who was swim ming toward the shore with a child. This was Miss Mary Wakefield, of CliarlevtNx. She had jumed overlioard from tlie steamer with tlie six-year-old child of Capt. Kehoe clasped in her arms, (irasping a liroken fender she clung to it, and seizing the clothing of tlie child in her teeth, she bravely struck out for tlie si lore. ('apt. Hanson says she is the pluckiest woman he ever saw in his life. When he started to take her and tlie child into his boat site told him to hurry away to the others, as she o sild take care of herself. She reached tlie shore in safety and when another of the shipwrecked passengers was taken from the I mat in an almost frozen condi tion, she took off her flannel underskirt and wrapiil it around him. When Cajt. Hanson rearhed the a reik the yawl of the Racine hail picked up fifteen persons. He saved six more and seventeen others flouted ashore by the aid of planks and life preservers. Among the bodies picked up by Capt. Hanson was that of Mrs. Ella Oxier Smith, of Cliarlevoix, It was found flouting on tlie surface of the lake, and tlie position of the life pn-server showed that Mrs. Smith had worked it down so as to keep as much of her lusly as M?ssi- ble out of tlie water. Ik-coining lie n limbed ami fatigued her head liad fallen over until it was sulsnerged and she was drowned. In gieaking of Capt. Case, C?ait. Han son said lie never knew what courage in a man meant until he witnessed the he roic fortitude displayed by the brave commander of tlie Cliamplain. RETALIATION.

The re cent order of the Dominion ( lovemiiient to tlie Canadian Custom officials at Windsor, Out., to make a record of all Americans residing at IK-troit and vi cinity who daily cross the line to en gage in work in Canada, has led to a counter move by Collector Cutter, at Niagara Falls and Suspension Bridge. Tli is morning as Canadian lalxirers numla-ring a) unit 300 who are employed upon this side, reached our frontier they were surprised ' at this end of the suspension bridge by deputies who demanded their names, ages, resi dence, occupation ami where and by whom they were employed. lhi"-ing the day notices were served upon the employers of these foreigners that if they should continue to employ such for eign lalior after July 1 the United States District Attorney would l recommend ed to proceed against them according to law. REIH CINU W.MJES. Iran Works In Krariing Cloail I low n The I on Market llepmiaeil. Readino, Pa., June 24. President Coit, of tlie Reading Iron Works, to-day informed the company's employes that in consequence of their refusal to accept tlie proiosed ten per cent, reduction all of the company's furnaces, the tule wotks and rolling and sheet m:IIs will be closed on July 2 for an indefinite jieriod. Tlie company, he said, could not afford to operate the works at the present rate of wages and pri-e of goods. This sus pension will throw 2,000hands out of em ployment, the largest closing down in Reading for years. Tlie Brooke Iron Company, of Birds boro, iMwited a notice in its puddle sheet mills and nail factory, that owing to the depression in the iron market and in or der to keep the mills going a reduction in the wages of iti 500 employees would have to lie made, commencing July 1, of aliout ten per cent, in the wages of puddlers and heaters, fifteen ier cent in nailers" wages and all others in proiror tion. STRIKE ANTICIPATED. No Acrrmnt Arrived at By Iron M. a and th A mmm i a t ion. PlTTsBURo, Pa., June 21. The joint committee of the iron manufacturers and the Amalgamated Association to ar range a scale of wages for the ensuing year, held anotlier futile conference this morning. The workmen statiil that they had no power to withdraw the ten ir cent, advance asked for in tlieir scale, but were willing to make concessions on '"extras." The manufacturers main tained the stand taken at jirevious conferences tliat no increase would lie granted, and after a session of three hours tlie conference adjourned to meet at 3 o'clock this afternoon. The impression is growing that the commit tee will lie unable to agree and that there will lie a strike. Before the adjourn ment of tin? Amalgamated Association Convention, last night, a resolution was unanimously adofited denouncing tlie present system of arbitration Iietween capital and labor ami declaring tliat the association would not submit to any such method of settling disputes. lntor State I Mill at LonUvllla.

The market oiiencd with a feel ing of confidence in many of the stocks w hii'h suffered so severely yesterday and Lirge supiortiiig orders were given all over the room. In a few moments however, there was very Iwavy selling apparent and the report was started tluit there hal la-en a falling out Iie tween Jay Could and Russell Sage and Cyius W. Field. At the same time Ber dan offered some heavy Mocks cf Man hattan stork which were taken by Wright & Co., and in a short ieriod the sales by Iferdon amounted to 7,000 sliares and Wright's purchases to 11,000 shares. These sales were made at alasit 156 but as soon as Wright & Co.'s orders were tilled the price broke to 1 19) and at that point Men.slieiiner fc Co. hail stop or ders reached and they offered the stock down 10 t cent, without making a sale. The rally did not occur until the price reached 130, falling IMiJ per cent, from the opening figures. The room was eov enil with brokers, and the decline irought out selling orders in all classes of securities. Western Union, which held firm for awhile, la-gan to break aliout tl o'clock, and in a quarter of an hour dropicd 8 per cent. Tlie fall in 4her stin ks was cHTesiondiiigly great.

The excitement in the stock market reached its greaU'St height shortly after noon mid a veritable jmnic was devel- oied. No attention was iiaid by the brokers to fractions in the sales made by them, and the fluctuations were so wild tluit salt's were sometimes from 3 to 10 tier cent, ajmrt. Stocks bought near the opening were thrown over when the break oecuired, and this selling com pletely demoralized the sirculator. The marking down of loans and delivery of orders kept the clerks and messengers fully as busy as the brokers, and the sire was the scene of more excitement tluui has lieen . witnessed since the May panic of 1K5. The greatest declines so far recorded are Manhattan 40t, to 116: Missouri Pa citic 1 1 per cent., to W J; Cotton Seed Oil Trust 7 jn-r cent., to Richmond Ter minal "I per cent., to 6; New England per cent., to Lake Erie and West ern 5 ier cent., to 53. THE COUNTRY EXCITKII. The room during the panic was filled with rumors of all kinds, and telegrams from all tioints followed each otlier in rapid succession giving selling orders and making sjapiuiries aliout many re ports which were by this time circulated all over the country. Tlie increased short interest saved the room from a money panic by its demand for stocks for delivery and S. V. White and some otlier large operators entered the market and liegan Inlying freely. They soon gathered a large following, and the buy ing turned the market almost as rapidly as it liad fallen. Stocks took long jumps to their former prices. Manhattan re covered 30 per cent, of its loss, and other stocks generally recovered almnt half the decline recorded. No failures were announced as a result of the break. Mr. Jay Gould, who it was rumored was dead, was in his oflice at 195 Broad way at 13:45 p. in., and was srfectly weil. His son, George (iould, was seen by an Associated Press reiorter, and asked alnint the rumors of his father's death. He declared the rebuts to be malicious falsehoods, circulated to affect the stork market. 12:30 p. M. At this hour the market has recovered somewliat of ifs usual tone and prices have risen from one to nine -r cent, from the lowest point. Missouri Pacific, which fell to 02 and is now 101; Manhattan Elevated, which droptied to 130, is now 13, and Western Union, which fell to CM, is 70. There dm-s not seem to liave lieen any good reason for the panic, and it was solely due to a U-ar raid, assisted by false ru mors of Gould's death and the embar rassment of prmiincnt gentlemen. "A MALICIOUS FALKKHOOD. A rcjiorter of the Associated Press has just een Mr. Gould in his office ami Gould furnished him with the following letter which he liad just sent to John J Kieman: " The bulletin you are putting out that my Manliattan stock is in loans is a ma licious falsehood. Not a share of my Manhattan is in loans or lias liad my name on the lavk, nor do I owe a dollar in the world, lou should promptly contradict. lours truly. Jay Gould. Mr. Gould said furtlier, that the story tliat he ami Cyrus W. Field had quar reled was untrue, and tliat he and Field were as good f riemls as 'ever. The ru mor that Field is ia trouble is also base- hiss. VUIETIJIO COWS. 13:45 p. at. Money is 3-16 to J per diem, but Russell Sag" reported aa liaving said that money "will be easier from this time on. Stocks continue to advance slightly, not ithstandins the heavy rate for money. The excitement on the Stock Board seems to bar uea out, and things are quieting down rapidly. , r At tlie close the stock market waa still unsettled, but general! firm. The total business for the day was tlie largest for any day so far this year, amounting to 667,000 shares. The entire active list is lower and Manhattan is down 31 per cent.; Denver preferred, 8; Richmond and West Point and Northwestern, 2J: Western Union, 2j; Missouri Pacific, 21; Texas Pacific, U; Colorado coal. 14; Lake Erie and Western preferred. If; Oregon Transcontinental, 1; New Eng land, 1J; Reading, ; Wheeling and Lake Erie, 3, and others for fractional amounts. Wall street w.is puzzled to account for the fact tliat such a great decline could occur without dragging down some of the bull houses which liave U-cn carrying large lines of stocks, but this was ex plained by the rejuirU that Gould, Field, Yanderbilt and Philadelphia capitalists had taken up stocks which were in weak hands and relieved the holders of the ne cessity of sacrificing them. Cyrus W. Field, one report said, hint taken uu 7.000,000 of Manhattan stock. Field and George Gould deny the correctness of the reports that there has I wen any disa greement Iietween Gould, Field and Sage. Tha Traaaarr Heady tnllrlfi. Washington, June 24.

Tlie Germans were among the first hi establish niilhtary pigeon lofts, and their system ia now the most complete in Eu rope.

Tlie commandant of the place is resmnsille for tlie birds Uing proierly cared for and traimvl. and they are in charge of a non com missiotied officer, who lias under 1 1 i m two private soldiers and a kecier. Registers are kept giving full particulars concerning all the birds the numlMrs stamped on them, their age, sex, color, distinguishing marks, and the different place from u hich each has flown, to gether with nots on their rapidity and reliability. Among the fortresses which were early shirked with bird were t hone near the Russian frontier Piaa-n, Thorn and Konigsla'rg; and others were gradually sttciided to, until at the present time it may In said that every jmrt of the country ia in coinmunieatiou, either directly or indirectly, with the capital by means of pigeons.

(In the west ern frout'er Cologne ia in direct com munication with Berlin, a distance of three hundred mill's, and is a transmit ting station for Mete and Mavence. Strnslniurg and Metz also communicate with the capital through N urr.lsirg. In France the vote of credit for the pigeon-lofts is twentv thousand dollars.

It has lieen taught in our schools, but for all practii-al purposea the time given, to acquiring a knowledge of the system has Is en time wasted. If those who are desirous of bringing aliout the change would copy the method adopted by the standard-lime agitators, they might lie more successful. If they could induce the large retail dealers of a numlM-r of our American cities to adopt this system in the sale of their good on or after a certain date, in all prolmbility the public won M soon accommodate it self to the new order of thing, and the smaller dealer would quickly follow in the wake of their larger associate.
