A colored boy, eight years of age living with Mr. Jerome A. Davis, near Goldsboro, had the first and second fingers of his left hand so lacerated by the explosion of a dynamite|cartridge Tuesday morning that Dr. S. P. Roberts found it necessary to a m p u t a t e both above the second joint. Mr. Davis had placed some dynamite iu his barn to be used for blowing up tree stumps and kuow- iug the searching propensities of boys, took the colored lad to the barn showed him the goods, the cartridges being on ti shelf about seven feet from the floor, and told him what might be the consequence should he handle them. Undaunted by the caution of Mr. Davis, the lad watched an opportunity and clambered to the shelf -seized one of the bright little brass tubes and began working on it with a nail. The rest we know. Fur Kcnuhlng Enterprise. From ihc Sunday Herald, April 17. 1898. Two carloads of F u r n i t u r e and Carpets to Southern California! This was a shipment made last week by J u l i u s Hines Sou, and it is not tho first time goods have been sent so great a distance by this firm, for they n u m b e r t h e i r c u s l o m e r s i n every State in the Union, Canada, Mexico and Australia. Probably no mail order house in the world publishes such comprehensive f u r n i t u r e aud carpet catalogues. The growth of Julius Hines Son has been phenomenal and their reputation is as enviable as their methods. Thousands of testimonials from many different places attest the satisfaction of their customers. Of course, 110 ouo in this vicinity, where they are favorably known Cor half a century, is surprised at their far reaching enterprise, but it is nevertheless a subject for congratulation.

On Monday last Congress u n a n i - mously declared that war had existed since aud i n c l u d i n g April 2Lst, when Gcueral Woodford, the American minister to Spain, was handed his passports and told to take his leave. The first week of the war has been remarkable for the pacific n a t u r e of affairs between the belligerent powers. The United States fleet, iu Cuban waters, has captured over a dozen prizes, some of t h e m rich, but that these will be kept seems d o u b t f u l . The Spanish sailors appear to be woefully lacking in courage, as was proven Tuesday when the little steamer Mangrove, the baby of the uavy, captured v big Spanish liner, the Panama, despite the fact that the l i n e r was more heavily gunned than her adversary. Tho captain of the big steamnr was f o u n d in his cabin locked up. Another evidence of this want of nerve on the part of the Spanish seamen was found a day or so previous to this capture by the Mangrove. The American s h i p Helena challenged a big Spanish vessel, and although the Spaniard had considerably more speed than the American, and was without the range of her guns, she promptly hove to and allowed herself to be taken. Not a single case is reported where an American ship has given chase and failed to capture her prizo. On tho other hand, several United States merchantmen have sailed away from tho enemy's cruisers, aud only one has thus far been captured. One of the Spanish boats was taken froru under the gnus of Morro Castle. President McKinley has declared the ports of n o r t h - ern Cuba in a state of blockade, and g u n b o a t s constantly patrol the coast, A strange feature is that the principal fighting fleet of the e n e m y stays three t h o u s a n d miles away. The first bloodshed of the war was at Matanzas on Wednesday, when Admiral Sampson, w i t h the flagship New York, the m o n i t o r Puritan and the cruiser Cincinnati, bombarded, silenced and pretty well destroyed the Spanish batteries, in position arid iu course of construction, at the entrance to the harbor. Tho artillerymen manning these batteries had twice fired on the torpedo boatFoote, aud Admiral Sampson had reached tho conclusion t h a t something had to bo done to stop their aggressiveness. It took just eighteen m i n u t e s to silence tho batteries. The last shot that was fired by the Spanish came from Point Rubal Cava. The P u r i t a n replied w i t h one of her TJ- inch guns. The shell s t r u c k the battery with w o n d e r f u l accuracy, and blow up a portion of it. The A m e r - ican gunners had fired accurately all tho way t h r o u g h , and hud created havoc, w h i l e every shot fired by the Spaniards had gone wide of its mark. The n u m b e r of dead and w o u n d e d ou the Spanish side m u s t have been considerable. Our a r m y representatives have landed iu Cuba and are in conference w i t h the insurgent leaders, Gomez and Garcia. The United States Government will equip the Cuban soldiers, and will, it is stated, expect them to do most of the land fighting on tho islaud. A number of United States regulars, however, will be landed to aid them. Tho 125,000 volunteers called for by tho President have responded two-fold, and those who were turned away, iu most instances, seemed sadly disappointed that they were not allowed to servo their country at this time.

It has been brought on it is said by the competition of Jthe steamer H a m i l t o n and Greonsboroiigh, which reduced the r.-'.tes in order to secure business. The rate has been met by the established lines, the Baltimore, Chesa- p e a k e aud A t l a n t i c and Wheeler, between whom a rate agreement has existed for some time. The round- t r i p faro between Easton and Baltimore is as low ab fifty ceuts. The m e r c h a n t s of Easton, Cambridge. Denton and i n t e r m e d i a t e points ou tlio river h a v e complained of the low fare as d e t r i m e n t a l to their business, as people have been at- tractc.d to Baltimore by the low rates, and purchase goods there instead of at h o m e . President Wilson, of the Baltimore, Chesapeake and Atlantic Railroad Company, has replied to a petition of the merchants of Cambridge, asking a discontinuance of the low rates, that he and the Wheeler l i n e are w i l l i n g to restore the old rates if the merchants w i l l agree to give them their traffic. With the present competition, however, the old lines must meet the reductions in [order to secure business. This is the f i t s t l e n g t h y rate war ou the C h o p t a n k since the days of the rivalry between the Maryland and Chop- t a n k Steamboat Companies, when similiar wars f r e q u e n t l y raged.

Mr. Charles G. Grillin, also of this county, is a, member of tho New York National Guard. If his company is selected to go to the front, it is safe to say that no more gallant soldier will do battle against the h a u g h t y dons t h a n w i l l this son of Caroline. And from the u a v y , loo, wo may expect to hear that the Carolinian is iu evidence, Mr. Clayton Blackiston, a grandson of tho late William G. Horsey, is postmaster on t h e b a t t l e s h i p Indiana. His last letters home indicated thai he was anxious for the fray. Mr. Walter Brown, son of Contractor James H. Brown, of this t o w n , is a soldier in the army, now at Tampa, Fla. He has w r i t t e n to his father, stating that he expects to go to Cuba iu a few days. Mr. L, B.

Harold Powell, of the Delaware College E x p e r i m e n t a l Station, has made a valuable suggestion ou the destroying of the cur- ciilio, which levies a heavy t r i b u t e a n n u a l l y on the peach crop of the Eastern Slioro' of Maryland and Maryland. The beetle lays the eggs iu the small f r u i t s j u s t a f t e r the blossom falls. The peaches, which are attacked when small, usually comprise a large proportion of the "June drop," and f r u i t attacked when half- grown becomes wormy and g u m m v . The loss from the eurculio often amounts to more than 50 per cent. o£ the total setting. "The only practical means." says Prof. Powell, "of destroying the cureulio this spring is to jar them from the trees upou a canvas aud kill them after they have fallen. The canvas may be stretched over a light frame, leaving a slit S U B M A R I N E -tn«f l!oatMir- THE, 1 HARBOR.' to Puss tlicTorts Hundreds of people living along the line of the Queen Anne's railroad were disappointed at not receiving their Baltimore mail Wednesday m o r n i n g .

The b tree is then jarred by a q u i c k blow from a padded raallet, eitherou the t r u n k of main branches of the tree. "It is best to jar early in the morning, as the beetles are theu sluggish aud fall readily. The jarring should be continued every day or two over a period of three weeks or until uomore curculiosare taken. In some seasons the i n j u r y does not last more t h a n two weeks. "The important points to observe are: First, jar as soon as the blossoms have fallenj second, destroy the curculios that fall; third, continue the jarring until the beetles disappear." Professor Powell says that the eurculio can be absolutely controlled by the jarring method, which is a usual practice among the plum and thccutoflith the nrewertoii channel, and all vessels of more than twenty-two feet draft must be (owed over this distance, steamers noHnrnii.-jr - - - *» thur propellers. peach York. growers in Western New Minor Matters. Mr. George C. Moore, of Talbot, recently examined the buds on the farms which belonged to his father, the l.-vte George H.

Twigs that can bear but one good peach have from four to six healthy young ones on them now. Attention is called to the card in this issue of J. C.

"- "- ".ti/ni *w Hi; iiit'll oil bile batteries.' 3 In consequence of this order the steamer Favorite, of the Queeu Anne's Railroad Company, did not make the trip to Baltimore on Tuesday e v e n i n g ; hence could not make the regular trip from that city Wednesday morning. The steamer Joppa, which arrived here at noon Wednesday, left the city at six o'clock the evening before, an h o u r before her schedule time, aud until f u r t h e r notice the boats of the B. C. A. line will leave at that hour for the Choptank. Another effect of this order is the rearrangement of the trips of the Favorite, so that one trip per day is made, leaving; Queeustown daily, except Sunday aud Monday, at 8 o'clock in the morning, arriving in Baltimore at 10.43; returning,leaves Baltimore at 3.25 and arrives at Queenstowu'6.20 in the evening. On Sunday the boat leaves Quoenstown at 5.00 a. m., arrives in Baltimore at 7.45 a. m., leaves city at 8.00 and reaches Queeustown at 10.46 a. m.-, where it lies over u n t i l 4 o'cloek in the afternoon, when the second trip is made to Baltimore, .arriving before sundown, aud lying over u u - til 5.30 Monday morning. The trip to Queeustown is made in time for departure at the regular week-day hour. Some apprehension may have been felt by passengers by boat to Baltimore, owing to the laying of the submarine mines in the ship channel approaching the city. Most of river craft is of such light draft that the mines, twenty-four feet below the surface, could not be disturbed by them. The steamer Favorite, of the Queen Anne's line, does not use the ship channel in her trip to and from Baltimore, her light draft permitting her to take a side route. Cost of transportation is a" very small item now in the expenses of a traveler to Baltimore from any of the Choptank landings. Ten-day excursion tickets are sold by both the B. C. A. aud Wheeler Transportation Lines for fifty cents for the round-trip. Second-class fare is ten cents cheaper than this. A straight first-class ticket costs thirty- five cents, and] the second-class is five cents lower. The steamer Tred Avon, which is now at Woodall's shipyard, where she has been overhauled and repaired, will soon be ready for service. This steamer will be used as Jan excursion boat this summer between Bay Ridgo and Claiborne." The steamer Enoch Pratt is being overhauled.
