A new time, table goes into effect on the Florida Southern on Monday, the 37 th iiiHt. Only three persons were reported in jured on the rat trap pavement yester day, on Reid street. Notwithstanding the fact that business generally is duULjob printing is active at The Palatka News office. The West End thermometer registered the following temperature yesterday:? a. m., 80; 1 p. m.. 88; p. m., 86 A couple of opossums, one a few weeks old, in a cage in front of Mr. E. T. Lane's tore, attracted some attention yester day. Mr. Holmes Irwin, of lone, presented The Palatka News with one of the fin est watermelons of tlie season the melon weighed 44 fiounds. It would seem, from the number of empty beer kegs at the Jacksonville, Tampa ami Key West dejsit, that tlie people here drink considerable beer. Duytona certainly must expect to keep cool, if the matter can be judged front . tlie amount of ire that was shipped there yesterday by tlie Palatka Ice Company. A special meeting of tlie Ladies' Me morial Society will be held at the resi dence of Mrs. Kennerly at 4. p. m. Mon day, June 27. A full attendance is re quested. There was only one case before his Honor, Mayor Teasdale, yesterday, and that was a D. and I)., for which the de linquent was assessed one dollar and costs. Hon. P. L. McKinnon. a prominent lawyer of Marian na, Flo., is at the Saratoga. Mr. KcKinnon says tlie crop prosiects of Jackson County are very good. . The bridge question is a benefit to boarding-house keepers. The boarders use up their meal hour in the discussion of the .question, instead of discussing their food. Mr. Jules Solomon, of the well known firm of Saloman & Stockton, Jackson ville, wholesale cigars and toliacco, is in the city for a few days in the interest of his business. Mr. W. J. Jarris, Superintendent'of the Palatka and St. Augustine Railway, who was in attendance on the Citizens' Meeting, Thursday evening, returned to St. Augustine yesterday. A horse hitched to a dray enlivened things a little yesterday afternoon, by running from Lemon street down Front, but was finally stop(ed on the vacant lot north of the Putnam House. Mr. Joseph, of the firm of Joseph & Husson, city engineers, had a gang of men at work yestenlay cleaning out the drain near the gas works, which had be come choked up by the recent liesfvy rains. Gen. Bentley, of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway, came up from Jacksonville, and no doubt will look after tlie interest of his road in tlie matter of the bridge across tlie St. Johns. There were some tine watermelons and cantaloupes at the Florida Southern freight deot yesterday, consigned to parties in this city. They were grown at Mcintosh, on the line of the above named rood. Mr. I. Schermerhorn and family Turf t yesterday for a visit to Chattanooga. They will probably lie gone all summer. Tlie young ladies of the family left sev eral weeks ago, much to tlie regret of the young gentlemen of the city. Mr. R. R. Reid hits just received a fresh lot of groceries, among which can be found tlie choice "Old Dominion" pig ami "SiverStar" hams, besides a full line of canned goods. Mr. Reid also re . reives daily fresh fruits and vegetables. Mr. Walter Bent, of East Palatka, is having his boot repainted and otherwise overhauled, with the probable intention of entering the proposed regatta on the Fourth. Mr. Bent will not sail the boat himself as he is to leave fur England shortly. There will probably be, a change of the freight schedule on tlie Florida Southern Railway, to take effect on Monday, and the train which arrives at the usual time In the morning will leave later. The freight train on the Jacksonville, Tam pa and Ke Wert will also, it is said change its schedule to agree with that of the Florida Southern Railway. , Mr. Jackson of the firm of Ackerman A Jackaon, informed a reporter of Turn Palatka News yesterday that an ac quaintance of his who had left here for TaylorsvilW. Ky., writes hint that the thermometer at that place registered 101 in the shade on the 21st ina.. and that he had made a mistake in leaving Palatka. There is much complaint among gardener around the city of depreda tions made upon their melon and po tato patches, and it is likely that some of the rogues will wake op with the colic one of these days. Tom Davis, better known as "Short Tom," had a melon patch a dav or two ago of which he felt quite proud. One fine morning since he awoke to find that be had been robbed of some 25 or 90 choice cantaloupes and musk melons. Tom was on the eve of sending a barrel of these melons to Mr. Oscar Barron, but be will be unable to do so as nearly all of the choice melons were taken. Torn further says that he has spotted the thieves and will have tbem in limbo shortly. THE MATTER SETTLED. Tba Bridge ta TeraahuUe Near the J- T. K. W. Daek. The bridge question has been definite ly nettled, that is so far as the termini part of it is concerned, and is as follows: The eastern end will start from a point 200 yards north of Hart's grove and come directly across the river to a point just north of the present dock of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway. The bridge will have a draw of 230 feet, with a passage on either side of draw pier of 80 and 90 feet, which will be ample room for tlie largest steamers to imss through. There will be a wagon drive of seven feet on either side of the bridge. Both the Palatka ami St. Augustine, and the St. Johns and Halifax Railways will cross the bridge, and were at work yesterday surveying routes to the east ern terminus. Gen. Bentley, of tlie Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway, was in the city yesterday ami looking over the ground .arid arrangements are being made for a f:)0,000 union depot, which will be located near or on tlie spot occupied by the present assenger depot of the Jacksonville. Tampa and Key West. Tlie building of the bridge and niuon dejiot will be of much benefit to Palatka merchants, for about $.'i0,000 will be ex pended here, or near here, in their con struction, and the bulk of that amount will be expended by the laborers on the work. Street Railway. A street car company is being organ ized to construct a line of road begin ning about where the proposed Union depot will be and run down Water street to Lemon, and out Lemon to the grant line. Tlie money is in sight to build this line and will be available just as soon as a charter is granted, which has been ap plied for. It is to be hoped that the City Fathers will lie liberal in the matter of the char ter for this line, and that the right of way will be granted without any restrictions other than those that are legally neces sary for tlie protection of the city. The gentlemen who will invest their money in this enterprise should be encouraged as much as possible in the matter of the charter and right of way. because the railway will be of great benefit to tlie city, ami because as an investment it will pay very little for three or four years. River News. The steamer Crescent City, of the Beach & Miller Line, has been tempora rily withdrawn from her route and taken to Jacksonville for repairs. Du ring the withdrawal of the Crescent City the steamer Georgea will make the former steamer's run, and the Mary Draper takes theGeorgea's run. These steamers do considerable freight traffic between this city and the points to which they have to run, besides being well patronised by the traveling public, though business is light just now. Foarth of July Exearsioa. Circulars are out for a Fourth of July excursion over tlie Florida Soutliern Railway from BrooksvUle and Leesburg, and also points on the St. Johns and Lake Eustis division, to Palatka, St. Augustine and all intermediate stations. Tickets to Palatka on the line of the Florida Soutliern only three cents per mile (one way) for the round trip, will be placed on sale at the different stations on the 3d and 4th of July and will be good to return on any train on the 5th. Southern Antidote for Malaria. It is generally known that Simmons Liver Regulator is relied upon to secure mmunity from all malarial disorders. This is proven by its popularity, and any one who has lived in the South has seen its currative effects and the protec tion it gives against this weakening and thtngerous malady. It acts UMtre promfit ly than calomel or ouinine, without any of their injurious consequences. The Tables Tamed. Tliurlow Weed told a good story in the cloak room of the Senate one day, about his crony. Dean Richmond, tsf Albany. Mr. Richmond had a son whose habits were not consonant with the railroad kinir's ideas of urudence. He was sharp. shrewd and witty, but was emphatically "one of the bovs. Tlie paternal purse was lomr. and his patience stretched out to equal dimensions, but finally the young Richmond wore out the pa tience, ami was told that he must go to work and earn his own living. Tlie old gentleman piaceu mm on one or his raiiroau trains ami when the v hi n miter had learned tle duties of a conductor promoted him to that station. One rule of the road was that no one should be deadheaded. Each passenger was compelled to produce his t ieke liit. Kw ram r show a nass sign ed by the President, Dean Richmond. A few days after young Richmond took' chanre of a train his father was among tlie passengers. In due course oi ume the conductor reached the seat occupied by the old gentleman, ami, tap ping him on the shoulder, ejac ulated: "Ticket, sir." Dean tnade no reply, otlier than by a good-natured smile. "Ticket. anal the conductor, emphatically. "I have no ticket, you vnunir rascal. said the old gentleman. warming up as he noticed the other pas sengers givuig w:uwm mj7 rw, and don't need anv. "Have you a pass, then?" quoth the conductor. "No," roared the now wrathy parent: "clear out or I II discharge you. "If you've neither ticket nor pass," responded the son, "vou must nar tout fare." Again the railroad president threatened to dis charge the conductor an less ne moveu on. "Will too par. saul young Kicnmona reaching for the bell rope. Pay your fare, or 111 put yon off.' Remonstrance was vain, ami the president was com pelled to pay the fare on his own road. When his wrath had time to cool he was pleased at the voumr ccniiurtor's strict obedience to orders, and concluded to give him a better chance than punching tickets. TOWN TATTLER'S LOGIC. ior of tKt Paialka Arm. In some respects "Town Tattler," in last Sunday's issue, is to be commended for the effort he makes in the interest of order and quietude. He wants "a good, qniet, decent and respectable Sunday," to which aspiration every "good, quiet decent and respectable" citizen says amen ! And if he were well acquainted with a few of the reaiiy "progressive minds" of the day he would know just where to look to for the most efficient and permanent help in so laud able an enterprise as be wislies to see ac complished. And he might also discover tliat his parenthetical interrogatim point is wholly pointless. Sliould lie give himself a smattering of biological science, look into the laws of develop ment, and read a little history, he will learn that not the slightest genuine im provement nor real advance has yet been made in human society, except as it lias been instigated and led by the "progres sive minds" of tlie period. He will find, when he looks it up. that almost every thought, no matter how valuable it eventually proved to be, was. at first, and generally for a long time, sat upon, ridiculed, and even persecuted by tlie "moss bunkers" of the time, until. iuch by inch as it were, it succeeded in establishing itself as a v-rity in all mimls progressive" enough to comprehend that "tlie whole (of anything) is greater than its parts." Tlie argumentation of the essay re ferred to. comprised in the last two iara- graplis thereof, is something tremen dous. It not only "slaughters the King's English, but it rem M-selexsly tears logie into riblsms and shretls. It would tie a waste of your valuable sixice to animadvert further upon this won derful syllogism. Its imja-rfections must be apiarent even to -"prgres-sive mimls." What does T. T. wish to say or establish anyhow? If he means that the large class of patrons, those "thousand;" to whom he inferentially I tut plainly refers as entertaining some misgivings as to the verity of the Chris tian dogmas, are either howlers in any sense or ground their opinions of the merits cf any system whatever ujion the conduct of "TRAITORS unto tliat order" or system, he only sliows a profound lack of information, and may lie excused because of ignorance ! If "Tattler" has a wish to learn the substantial reasons why "there are thousamls" doubtless several of them even here in our own beautiful but con servative Florida who look upon the popular religion of the country with less favor than he, and you think the subject of sufficient general importance, to give it space, it will afford me some grati fication to recite a few of them. Meanwhile let me assure you that I am ever ready to strike hands with the "Town Tattler" and all others in the use of all proier, just and democratic means to secure to ourselves "a good. quiet, decent and respectable Sunday," and all other dayn a ire 1 1. Terr. Fuji's. OPINIONS. A Waste mt ia A Bimlinc Ited for Mi- aaa The Palatka Mnnlrale. Written for the Palatka NVwh.1 Tuesday evening, while Kissing by the gas lamp on tlie corner of Water and First streets. opiosite Vertrees stables, we could hear quite a quantity of gas bubbling up through the water from the base of the Iamp-iost. Wliose loss? In 18N2 Cedar Key quarantined against Key West, when Key West was healthy. To get even. Key West quarantined against Cedar Key. Our more inland towns are keeping the liall rolling, and in the same spirit. It is Tuesday night, but shortly after the heavy downpour of rain. We were going al"ng First street, and when we reached the end of it, at tlie railroad, a beautiful lake lay spread out before us. lit up by the fitful glare of the gaslight. Every heavy shower leavi-s a lake there, into which pour the drainage of a irt of Water ami First streets, also the filthy water that flows from the stables near by and from several other lots. The lake dties not last long, as it soon soaks into its porous bottom of sawdust and rot ton wood, tliereby liecoming a breed ing bed for miasma. Tlie Palatka Musicale is increasing in meinliership and popularity. We hoie it will continue its jmwjierous career, and will not, like so many organizations of a like cliaracter, dare up anil then die out. Peaches have lieen very scarce this season. Wliat can the matter lie ? Tows Tattler. MtltkET REPORTS. rlMAMIAL. Nrw Toh, June 24.
