MoKelvy, of St. Louis, has boon the guest of Mrs. Prof. Ray the past week. Miss Antoinette Olcott, who has been a resident of this place for thirty years, more or less, has for several months past given evidence of the growth of a mental disorder which, at last, has demanded the attention of her friends. With the kindest of feelings towards the unfortu» nalo lady.whose lonely life has increased their compassion, several members of the church of which she is a member and other friends petitioned for the necessary logal inquest upon her mental condition. The case came up on Friday before Judge Cook and Miss OlcoU was was adjudged insane aua delivered to the Sheriff for safe keeping until or- rangements can be made for her reception at one of the State usylums. A conservator will bo appointed to look after Miss Oloott'fl property which Is Col. Doty favors us with a copy of the St. Andrews, Fla. Messenger which makes the following [exposure of the St. Andrews Land Co. which duped so many citizens of this locality; The St. A. Land Co. of Cincinnati represents to the public that they have 500 building lots, whiqji by the cunningly worded advertisement people are lead to believe are directly in the village. We believe it to be our duty to inform all interested, what the facts are as near as we can. The company did own a limited number of village lots in St. Andrews, but they have been nearly all sold at good prices to people who came here and made their purchases on the spot. All the lands, and build ing lots, being.disposed of now by thp wonderful Free Land Scheme are from 4 to 8 miles from here, of which there may be 50,000 instead of 500. The Co. gives clear title to these lots, but as they are so far out from where the town is ever likely to reach, they are almost worthless. Observe, they don't say villagalots, or city lots, simply building lots, but who wants a building lot 25x100 feet 5 or 6 miles from townf Let ^ho facts be known, they are all we want. Any one coming to St. Andrews cannot but be pleased with the Bay, the town and people, and if they are looking for a home they will be more than suited, but not with the $1.25 lots of tho St. Andrews Company.
