Tl.e Richmond State of the 21st instant says: 4 The new vestibule 'Atlanta Spe cial' made its first trip this afternoon, steaming out at the Byrd street station at 15: 10 o'clock. With the exception of the Florida special it was certainly one of the prettiest trains that was ever on a regular run through Richmond. "The train consists of a combination mail and express car, a combination bag gage and smoker, the latter with forty seats, a first clas coach with a seating capacity for seventy two people, and a sleeping car. "The painting of the cars is very pieity, the lettering on the outside being 'Sea board Air-Line, Atlanta Special.' The cars are considerably larger than the aver age, and the floors are covered with Brussels carpet. The toilet apartments are exceptionally line. The latest most improved air-brake is used and the cats are of the six-wheel tiuck order. "The "Atlanta special' is a daily train between Washington and Atlanta, and passes through Richmond north-bound at noon and south bound at 3:10 p m." Persons here desiring to take this ele gant palace on wheels for New York and other northern points will take the train which leaves here at 5:50 a. m. and con nects with the Atlanta special at Hen derson.

An Army Pat to Flight by One Man and With the Loss of Only One. It was probably one of the most re markable battles that was ever fought The advance had been well planned by the attacking force, the idea being to surprise the enemy at the dead of night. Every detail had been carefully consid ered. The advance would be hidden by a wood, and the first the enemy would know of it would be when the troops swept out of the wood and carried the camp by storm. There were apparently no pickets in the wood, and there seemed to be no possibility of a failure. The colonel in command was gloating over his expected victory, when one of his officers called his attention to bright light some distance to the left of the advancing column. 'What is it?'' asked the colonel anx iously. "I don't know," replied the officer. "It flashed np there only a minute ago. "Well, if any one suspected we were here he wouldn't go along swinging a lantern to make a target of himself," as serted the colonel. The column had barely begun to move again when a light appeared on the right and a little to the rear of the one that had just disappeared. Another halt was made, and the colonel was tempted to order a volley in the direction of the light, but of course that would betray the exact whereabouts of the column and would be almost suicidal. "We are being surrounded!" exclaimed cue of the officers excitedly. Then a light appeared in the shrubbery immediately ahead of the retreating col umn. The first man yelled "Rifle iit!"' and cleared tne wnoie tmncr at one bound. The second man was not so for tunate. He stumbled and fell, and as he fell he instinctively made a reach for the light. He was the only man killed, but his death completed the panic. Ranks were broken, and the retreat became a wild race to get out of the wood. And the lights seemed to dance here and there, appearing at the most unex pected points and adding to the confu sion. WThen the excitement was at its height, a man climbed out of a pit some distance in the rear oi the retreating force. He stretched himself and peered after the fleeing soldiers. "Hanged if I wasn't cramped in that hole," he sr;d. "I suppose I might as well turn a cannon or two loose just to wake the boys up and scare those foot racers a little more." He lay down on the ground at the edge of the pit, reached his hand down to some keys on a sort of switchboard, and in an instant cannon boomed out. Then he raised himself to a sitting posture, lit a pipe and chuckled to himself. Two or thrpfi mpn rnsbprl nr artel J breathlessly inquired what the trouble was. "Oh, I had a little brush with the ene my," replied the man with the pipe calmly. "They tried to surprise the camp." "And you beat them?" "Why, they're running yet." Quite a crowd from the camp had gathered by this time, and one of them cried, "Thre cheers for the electrician!" but the man with the pipe raised hia hand to stop them. "The credit is not all mine," he said. "Remember my able force of linemen who ran wires through this wood and made it possible for me to win this vic tory.' Just then some of the men who had gone into the wood after the retreating enemy returned with the news that one man had been killed. "What!" cried the electrician, jump ing up. He hurried to the place where the body lay. "Too bad! Too bad!" he said regret fully, "but then accidents will happen, even in a battle. He had no business to catch hold of a live wire." "Oh, well, there's no use feeling bad about it," put in one of the officers. "A victory has been won, and only one life has been lost." "But why have one lost?" asked the electrician. "Of course it was tiresome work in that pit, and when I got them on the retreat I was glad of it, but I never supposed any one was going to grab hold of the light. It's too bad!" And the man who had won the victory could not be consoled. Chicago Tribune.

New York, Oct. 23. The attention of Health Commissioner Edson was called to day to a report that much southern tobacco which has been received in the market the past few days had been ren- dered unfit for use by reason of paris green having been sprinkled on the plants during the last season. Dr. Edson said that if the report was true the tobacco was dangerous io consumers An exami nation was ordered. We are inclined to think the above is without foundation, for we never heard of pan's green being sprinkled on tobacco; and we have lived in a tobacco country for years. SAM JONES AGAIN.

I had to rub and beat those parts until they were sore, to overcome in a measure the dead feeling that had taken tvKspssfnn nf them. In addition, I had a strange weakness in my back and around my waist, together with an indescribable 'gone feeling in my stomach. Physicians said it was creeping uarjwjsis, uum nuuii,uu u.. mg to their universal conclusion, there is no Such was my prospect. I had been doctoring a vpnr and a half steadilv. but with no par ticular benefit, when I saw an advertisement of Dr Miles' Restorative Nervine, procured a bottle and began using it. Marvelous as n may seem, but a few days had passed before every bit of that creepy feeling had left me, and thprfi has not been even tlie slightest indication of its return. I now feel as well as I ever did. and have gained ten pounds in weight, though I had run down from 170 to 137. Four others have used Pr.
