If any recommendation wire needed as

Prominent Tennesaeean Dead.
NAtHVlLLLE. Tenn., Sept. 22 The Hon.
Washington Curran Whitthcrne, died at
tolumbia, Tenn., his borne, yesterday
afternoon, aged 66. He was elected a rep
resentative from Tennessee to the Forty
second. Forty-third, Forty-fourth, Forty
fifth, Forty-sixth, and Forty-seventh con
gresses. He took a seat in the United
found in a bathing establishment at
Coney Island, told an uncorroborated tale
of drowning. Their bodies -were never
found, so some suspicion lrgered in tbe
minds of their friends that they had play
ed a clever trick to cover up an elopement.
Word came from Jacksonville, Fla., last
night that the pair are in that city, alive
and well, with a story of a most remark
able experience. Thornton was associated
with bis brother in the bakery and con
fectionaay business in Brooklyn. On tbe
day specified above bis wife whs in the
country, bamuel thought to bave a little
fun himself, and so took Miss Eva, a
young woman ot M, to ioney isiana.
The Glri Could Not Swim.
At 2 o'clock they were in the water.
The waves rolled up near the big iron pier
and suddenly, as Thornton says, a big
roller came up, ami in a moment they
were struggling beyond their depth, while
the heavy waves and rapid tide carried
them out so quickly as to prevent their
crying for assistance. Half stunned by
the waves and choked by the salt, water,
Thornton, who is a good swimmer, had
presence of mind enough to catch hold of
Eva and bold her up. be could not swim,
and was almost paralyzed by fear. Soon
a sailing vessel came near and Thornton
shouted frantically for help. Those in
the boat heard him, rounded to, lowered
a boat, and ii a few minutes the half
drowned pair were taken on board.
Miss Eva llecomvs Delirious.
The sailors could not speak English, and
could only express themselves by signs.
On board both were given attention and
restored to consciousness. When Thorn
ton recovered he could not mi land and
knew not where they were being carried.
Bv morning the girl had become delirious
and raving over her escape. Xo land was
in sight and Thornton could not induce
the captain to put them on shore. He
finally explained by sij;ns that if the girl
recovered he would put them on the first
vessel he met going to New York. The
girl still continued to rave at intervals
and then fever set in, keeping her very
low for many days. After thirteen days
and many 1. inures thev managed to hail a
vessel that stopped and took them off.
Arrival at Jacksonville.
Tbis was a Spanish craft, so Thornton
says. I his vessel was bound for x uca-
tao, going through the rlorida straits.
After ten day's life on bjard they ap
proached land, much to Thornton's" joy.
and on t-uroay last a boat put them
ashore near the mouth of the St. John's
river. After going five miles they met a
farmer with a mule and cart and hired
him to drive them to Jacksonville. Thev
arrived at night and "after wandering
around for several hours found shelter in
a boarding house. Thornton cannot tell
tbe names of either of the vessels strange
to say, and his story in some other ways
is very queer. The girl tells tbe same
tale and bticks to it that it is all true.
Mysterious Disappearance of Bonds.
