i tad oh Tuesday, February 17, in a cyclone
that laughs to scorn all former efforts of
the storm king. Forming in the Gulf of
j Mexico, and striking the Chattahoochee
Talley, it passed up through Fort Gaines
until it reached Columbus, Ga. Here it
split, striking east and northwest. The
latter part of the storm, which was the
most destructive, passed on to Cahaba
valley, struck the lied Mountain in Ala
bama, and turning east again came back
to Heard county, Ga. From here its
course was north, sweeping out of exist
ence as it went on, the small town of Ox-
moor, and the new manufacturing village
of Leeds, anil leaving its usual record of
devastation at Birmingham. On it swept
stretching ouL-lfs wings, and taking into
its embrace Cave Spring, Rome and Car
tersville. Once more it turned east and
sweeping into Cherokee county, about
seven mites to the light of Jasper, Pick
ens comity, it passed up the summit of
Grassy Kuob, 3,290 feet above the level
of the sea, oyer the mountains and out of
sight, leaving in its wake twenty dead
bodies within the short space of fifteen
miles. On it went through Jackson coun
ty, into Oconee, S. C, on through North
Carolina to the sea. The eastern portion
of the storm after leaving Columbus,
swept through Talbot, Crawford and
Baldwin counties, again divided and
passed on either side of the Macon and
Augusta road, one branch going through
Haddocks, Teunillc aud Davisboro, then

for State Treasurer of Georgia, was found
under the timbers of his house at Davis

still alive. On Grassy Knob, Mrs. Levi

Nickolsou and numbers of ladies and
children perished : in Pickens and Chero
kee, W. H. Collier, Mr. James Taylor
and a number of other farmers were hurt
seriously. In the section of country
around Atlanta, from three to four hun

evening that this storm raged, a most
tempestuous wind swept up the the Ohio
valley, bitterly cold, and laden with
snow. It struck Clarksville, Tenu., at

A Scene in a Texas Theatre Not Down
on the Bills.
San Antonia. Tex., March 12.
Ben Thompson and King Fisher shot
each other dead in the Vandeville
theatre last night. Joe. Foster, trho
attempted to interfere with the com
batants, was shot in the leg and will '
probably die of hemorrhage. Thorap- j
son and Fisher had been drinking to-
gether and entered the theatre in com- j
pany. They met Footer io the dress
circle and seme words were exchang- j
ed. The dress circle was quickly i
cleared ; the occupants jumping into
the parquette below, and through the
side windows into the street. No one
seems to know who fired the first shot
or hew many were wounded in the
shooting. Before the theatre was fairly
cleared of its occupants, 1,500 persons
on the outside were clamoring at the
closed doors for admittance. Shortly
after the shotting Thompson's broth
er put in as appearance, but was
promptly arrested. A jury was hast
ily empaneled, and it was ascertained
that Thompson had received four
mortal wounds, and that Fisher had
been wounded three limes, two of
which would have caused instant
The remains of the victims were
taken in charge by a host of friends
and the obsequies have been ordered
on the grandest scale, regardless of

red was the scene last year of the kill
ing by Thompson, of Jack Harris,
who was proprietor of the place, r ishr
er and Thompson were probably the
two most desperate men in lexas.
They have each killed a large num
ber of men.
If eve:4 you had a showing for fine prices, it is in
the crop of Tobacco to be planted this year.
We keep a store, and strive to have in that store everything a farmer would like
to buy, both for himself and his family. We want our customer to be a cheerful man,
and if he has money in his purse he trill be cheerful ; but he can't be if, when he comes
to sell his crop, it brings him little or nothing. Everybody knows that on the fertilizer
he uses, allowing the season to be at all favorable, depends the result of his crop, and
this being the ease, he has no right to risk that crop on anything that lias not been
tried and proved. The following will show what has been "tried and proved," in the
fertilizer way, on fine tobacco, and Major Raglaxd, of Halifax county, Va., the great
tobacco authority, and grower of pedigree tobacco seed, is the man who tells about it.
If anybody knows what tobacco is he certainly does:
"There are several brands of fertilizer manufactured specially for tobacco, differing
in composition, price, and merit; and after repeated experiments with most, if not all
the best, the author gives it as his decided opinion, that for fine, bright, silky tobiccc

Tobacco Fertilizer, prepared by the Southern Fertilizing Company, Richmond, Na.
And this opinion is based upon seventeen years' trial, and often in competition with the
best of other brands on the market. It is a tried and proved fertilizer, which the plan
er can use without the risk of getting something unsuitcd to his crop; and therefore I
can recommed it with confidence."
Messrs. Mathews & Williamson, of Reidsvillc, N. C, wrote the following to the
Company, and state that they have seen nothing since to change their judgment.
"From oor own personal experience, and it covera-a long time, in watching the re
suits from the use of various brands of commercial fertilizers handled in this section, it
is our mature judgment that the 'iiLETCSOR BRASSD stands at the head of all
for the production of fine, silky, yellow tobeteco. The plant seems to receive more fittin
nourishment from the Use of this article than from any other, and we are of opinion
that if our farmers made it their stand-by, we would hear less of light chaffy tobacco,
having some color but no body, and that the farmer would realize the result he ought
to enjoy from his labor; for low-grade tobacco will ?iot bring big money."
Now we want vou to have "bir monev" for your cron ; because we not only deairc
you to make good bills with us, but pay for them when they are made; henee wc nan
die the 'Anchor Brand. and will sunnlv vou. in Quantities to suit, direct from the
factory. We don't want people to abuse us about tiieir fertilizer; we, therefore, sell
only what time has shown to be the best. So, make no arrangements in this line, until
you see or confer with us. You certainly can't afford to take anv risk this year.

A correspondent of the Statesville

give you a little hint of the outrages
of the Kepublican party in this sec

see they are losing ground in Mitch
ell, they have begun to use the petty
(4th class) postoffices as a means of
reward aud punishment, having ap
pointed one Lute Banner, a rank Re
publican "Liberal," or iu other words
more easily understood, a petty brin

postmaster at Elk Park, (a Democrat
and you need not forget it.) What
an outrage upon a free people for one
man to have the power to remove men
from thee petty offices and appoint
others in their places for no other
than for political purposes and elec
tioneering schemes! I think that the

understrappers whipped into ranks
for the coming campaign.
"The Republican party is now on
a very shaky foundation and they are
making their death struggle. They
are becoming alarmed and know that
it stands them in hand to railey their
forces in time for the coming storm
which will doubtless lift them out of
their hidiug places and expose to the
world evils that have so long been
practiced upon us. How can a man

Talk about pretty girls but she
was a wild flower and no mistake!
She got on the train to go over to
Meridian from Vricksbtirg, and she
was all alone. There was a sort of side
long movement among five or six men,
but a drummer for a Philodelphia
saddlery house got there first. He
grabbed up his grip and walked square
up to her seat and took possession of
half of it without asking a question,
and in ten minutes he seemed to be
perfectly at home. She answered his
questions briefly, and he had the hard
est kind of work to keep up conver
sation, and as the train approached
Jackson, she suddenly said :
"I want to telegraph papa from
here. Will you help me?
"Oh, certainly. 1 have a blank in
my pocket. Write youl telegram and
I will run into the office with it."
We missed him when the train
started, but by and by he was found
in the smoking car, his hat crushed
down and his nerves all on edge.
When asked what had happened he
drew forth the telegram which the
girl had requested him to hand in.
It read :
"Bring your shotgun with you to
pop over a drumuwr who has dread
fully annoyed mc. Shoot to kill."
"To think," he said that one so fair
could be so murderous!"
