Jacksonville, Fla., September 13.—
fKpccial]—Yesterday \v:is another gloomy,
rainy day. At noon the official report
' showed fifty-nine new cases of fever and ten
deaths as follows: Lewis F. Fleming, Jr.,
W. K. Porthress, H. K. KeyS, Chas. S. Sem-
bier, C. A. Keenc, Margaret Mario, Rev.
Thomas M. Smith. Carrie Wolf, Maggie
Wolf and Annie Griffons. Total cases to
date, 743; total deaths, 100. Advices from
McClenny state that there are sixty-five
cases there, and all the physicians are sick
but one. Medical aid and nurses are badly
needed. The executive committee of the
Jacksonville Sanitary association voted to
extend financial aid to McClenny.
Rev. Thomas M. Smith wan a minister of
great zeal, and Porthress one of the most
efficient members of the relief committee.
Young Lewis Fleming was a member, of the
democratic convention that nominated a
candidate for governor. Yesterday an extra
government train for Hendersonville, N. C.,
left the Waycross depot. About 2D0 passen-
gers were aboard and there would havo been
Jiearlv as many more had it been generally
known that it would be a free train. Seven
coaches wero comfortably filled, and it is to
be hoped that the refugees, who are only
£oo alad to get out of the stricken city, will
reach their destination in good health and
safety. The refugees will not be allowed to
leave llendersonville until ten days from
the time of leaving the city. Two com-
panies of North Carolina troops will enforce
E. B. King was the day chief operator at
the telegraph office, but he grew
nervous and }eft his brave compan-

operators here worked nobly, and a move-

salaries raised to pay for the arduous work
they are doing. Seven are doing the work
of thirteen. Not a saloon in Jacksonville

question is still the question of the day.
The state executive board of the Knights of
Labor has decided to appeal to the order at
larjge for aid for resident members of the
order. Nearly all mechanics and laborers
here now are unemployed, and it
is said that fully 1000 members with their
families are in needy circumstances,
an appeal was forwarded to the general ex-
ecutive board. All relief is requested to be
farwarded to Thomas J. Mott of this city,
state master workman and chairman of the
joint committee on relief. The increasing
death rate, and the terrible weather make
all the people feel very much discouraged
again. Among the ill to-day with fever is
Dr. Charles I. Burroughs, one of our most

Hill used these words: "These are my first
public utterances since my nomination.
Let me be clearly understood. It is my
sincere wish and desire that every democrat
in the state, and particularly every friend
of mine, shall vow for Cleveland and Thur-
jrnan. I also trust that every one who calls
bynseli an "independent," and every other
iobservatlve republican, who believes
with us upon the issue of
tariff reform, wil} likswist vote for
our national ticket whether he votenfor me
or not. Au<l white I should •be gr»til)*d to re-

not consistently give them, I hope that his

not prevent him tlie loyal support of

with cautious sparring,which predominated
throughout the battle. There were no

an excitement in the stock market this morn-
ing the like of which has not been seen since
Decemfier 16,1680. While such action was not
entirely unexpected, the market was not pre-
pared to toko the load of stock dumped upon it
by frightened foreigners, and material conces-
sions ia prices were brought out on the entire
list at tho opening of business this morning.
The board room traders were all bearishly in-
clined, and tho activity aided the bears in their
efforts to bring about a further decline. There
was good buying in Vandoi-bilts, Villards, and
some others, and this did much to
allay tho excitement and fears which
at tho opening were most intense.
The scare was abont over after tho first fifteen
minutes. There was some fluctuation during
the remainder of the day, and prices went up

Henderson and Turpin were acquitted. The

The Tenure of Clerical Office.
I am reminded of the fact that it was on
Cape Cod, where Dr. Bartol is said to be
making investments in land, that Thoreau
found that remarkable agreement by which
in the olden days a minister was settled for
as long a time as lie could tell a cod from a
haddock. Thoreau truthfully remarks that
such a stipulation would empty most pul-
pits nowadays, as it is long since the fishers
of men wera fishermen. [Bosto^ Post,

TAKLEQUAII, I. T., September 13.—Tho
following proclamation issued to-day by
Chief Mayes will be of extraordinary inter-
est to the stockmen all over the land, espe-
cially those in Kansas, Missouri and Texas,
and the states that are largely interested in
the grazing privileges of the Cherokee strip.
Then again, tho Cherokee Strip Dive Stock
association, who tried- so hard to lease tho
strip at their own figures, $175,000, and who

day in November, and this valuable grazing
privilege is open for bidders at that time.
Persons wanting to bid for the same, which
consists of over 0,000,000 acres, should bo
on hand or send their bids in by that time.
Chief Mayes said to-day that it was not tlie
purpose of tho Cherokee government to in-
jure anyone by taking possession o£ these
lauds, and when parties on the strip
show a willingness
to comply with the law by peaceably turn-
ing over tlieir improvements and grazing
ground to tho agent of the Cherokee nation
especially sent to tako charge of the same
October 1, and comply with the legal pro-
visions in regard to revenue, t|iey should,

chief of the Cherokee nation, taking formal

Whereas, ur.ler the terms of said lease, or
or agreement, all improvements on this

"THE HOLY DECREE"
Concerning the Knight* of Labor Forwarded
to Cardinal Gibbons*
New York, September 13.—a Rome
cablegram to the Catholic News announces
that the decree of the holy office on tlie
Knights of Labor question favorable to that
organization has been, forwarded to Cardinal
Gibbons. It will be remembered that in
188This holiness, concurring with the ideas
set forth in the letter of Cardinal Gibbons
in favor of the, knights, decided that there
was no cause for action. The pope decided
that in Canada, where a mandate had been
issued against the knights, members of the
order could receive absolution- on the prom-
ise Of obedience to the furtheE decisions of
the holy see. The latter having-been placed
beforathe holy office this decree is the re-
sult. It settles for good the question as far
as Iiome is concerned, provided, of course,
that tho constitution and laws of the order
remain the same.
Nutritious Value of Oatmeal.
It is nearly six centuries since Robert
Bruce sent into England his army of 20,000
men with no provisions except a bag of oat-
meal for each warrior; but the herculean
feats which were performed and undergone
by his hardy followers suggest that there
must be considerable nutriment in that
plain, simple food. Since thoso days our
Scottish friends have advanced very mate-
rially, but while they have discarded many
features incompatible with the spirit of tho
nineteenth century they have wisely
"held fast to that which is good," and they
to day rank oatmeal as a necessary part erf
their'diet, and the hardy constitution of the
Scotch, and their freedom from dyspeptic
ills, should encourage a much wider and
frequent use of oatmeal. The best oatmeal
of to-day, thanks to American ingenuity, is
not only nutrit ious, but when properly made
is very palatable. Children learn to like it
very quickly when it is presented
in this palatable form, and if they
become accustomed to begin each day
with a dish of tho best oatmeal
they will bo laying the foundation for a
good digestive organization. As there are
many who are incredulous about the possi-
l""- " —*■ ' 'atable, I subjoin
, Rorer upon the
Inlity of oatmeal being palatable, I subjoin
the following, hint of Mrs. Rorer upon the
subject: "Put four tablespoonfuls of finest
quality Irish Oatmeal, with one quart of
cold water, into a double boiler; add a tea-
spoonful of salt and stir for a moment to
mix. Stand it over a brisk fire and boil
without stirring for two hours, or
until the meal has consumed the water,
and the mass has a thick jelly-like
appearance: push it to the back part of the
range, where it will steam over night. In
the morning bring the water in the under
boiler to a boil; then turn the oatmeal care-
fully into a large, deep dish. Do not stir
or scrape with a spoon. If properly cooked
it will turn out! like boiled rice, each grain
swollen four times its normal size, and no
two sticking together. Serve warm with
sugar and whipped cream, or with plain,
thick, sweet cream." [Table Talk.
