Miss Edna Schell has returned to her home in Gallatin.

Miss Tompkins of Kentucky, a very clevery young woman who has been acting as Purchasing Clerk for the United States Supreme Court, has been appointed Assistant Marshal of the Court, a position never before held by a woman.  Miss Tompkins was formerly Secretary of the Southern Exposition, held at Louisville, and has held a number of important positions, although she is not yet 30 years of age.

The census office has issued a bulletin giving the statistics of conjugal condition in the United States, from which we take the following interesting figures:  Of the 62,622,250 persons living in the United States in 1890 37,129,564 were single, 22, 331,424 were married, 2,970,052 were widowed, 129,996 were divorced, and the status of 70,214 were unknown.  The term "widowed" is for convenience sake applied to men as well as women who have lost their married companions by death.  The statistics for Tennessee give the following figures:  Of the total population of 1,767,518 there were 891,585 males and 875,933 females.  Of the males 577,598 were single, 290,440 were married, 21,198 were widowed and 1,154 were divorced.  Of the females 515,379 were single, 291,665 were married, 65,859 were widowed and 2,660 were divorced.

Pythian Progress - Corner-Stone of the University Laid at Gallatin, The Ceremonies Conducted by The Grand Lodge In the Presence of a Very Large Assembly.

May 2, 1894 will be a prominent date in the history of Pythianism.  It will be used to mark the beginning of a new era in the development of the idea of the order-a progressive and educational era.  On that day it will be said the Grand Lodge of Tennessee laid the corner-stone for the main building of the Pythian University of the order universal, the great institution to be erected under the sanction of supervision of the Supreme Lodge.
And yesterday's celebration was in thorough keeping with the importance of the event.  Knights of Pythias never did themselves prouder in this state and it must be said that the ceremony and laying the stone and the incidents and surroundings were most gratifying and impressive.  
With the Laying of this stone Pythianism enters a new field in the advancement of the aim of benevolence and the promotion of the general good that underlies all Pythian movements.   Education of the highest sort will be provided for the children and grandchildren of Knights of Pythias and one of the grandest universities in the south promises to spring from this beginning.  There is no limit to the hopes or ambition of the promoters of the institution and doubt of the success of their venture has entirely vanished.
The fact that the institution is to be located at Gallatin does not localize it in the least.  It is not a Sumner County affair nor yet one of Tennessee.  It represents the first and great educational effort of the Knights of Pythias of the world, and those who are conversant with the pluck and personnel of this comparatively young fraternity know well that it will not be allowed to fail nor stop short of something excellent in the way.  The Knights of Pythias of the United States, Canada, and Mexico are interested in the success of the plan, and every jurisdiction will forward in every possible way this great educational plan.
Gallatin and Tennessee, on the other hand, are to be congratulated on their selection as the site of the buildings.  Such an institution would be an ornament and a benefit to any community, and the fact that it comes to the South, Tennessee and Gallatin speaks volumes for the energy and influence of the Knights of this state. With such an institution established on her soil Tennessee will naturally be given an additional prominence in the thought and interest of the great and growing order.
Yesterday morning's session of the Grand Lodge ended at 11:30 o'clock, and immediately the great majority of the members set out for the Union depot, where a special train of eight coaches waited to take them to Gallatin. In the meantime the local divisions of the Uniform Rank, the Joel A. Battle and the Nashville, were mustering at their armory on the corner of Sumner and Union Streets.  Headed by the Phillips & Buttorff Band, a hundred brilliantly trapped and helmeted Knights moved up Summer to Church and down Church to Union depot.  Their waving red helmets made a pretty sight and at the train they were cheered.  With probably 600 people on board the train moved out at 12 o'clock.
Within less than an hour Gallatin was reached and there was a large crowd at the depot.  The stop was made at the grounds about one mile north of the town and here the Nashville Lodge was met by Rowena Lodge and the local uniform division in a body. . . . . . .
Rev. H. A. Truex, Chairman of the local committee, took charge, and after calling the gathering to order, introduced Mayor Geo. N. Guthrie, one of Gallatin's most prominent citizens and Knights of Pythias who bade the Grand Lodge and visitors a formal welcome . . . . . . .

Gallatin:
The opera house on Wednesday evening was the scene of the most brilliant society ever that has taken place in this city for a long time.  It was the "gala day" ball which had been looked forward on with much interest for several weeks.  Hundreds of visitors were in the city and the managers had issued complimentary tickets to them.  The dancing hall was tastefull and artistically decorated with flags and bunting.  Prof. DePierri's fall orchestra furnished music for the occasion.  At midnight the guests were ushered into the two large rooms adjoining the hall were elegant refreshments were served by Mrs. C. H. A. Gerding, of Nashville.  After supper, dancing was resumed and continued for some time.
Miss Jane Vinson, by request, represented the Knights of Pythias on this notable occasion.  She was attired in a yellow silk gown trimmed with red and blue ribbon, the Pythian colors and the coat of arms of the lodge on the skirt of her dress.  The ball was a decided success, and the managers deserve much credit for the excellent manner in which they entertained all who were present.  Those in attendance were Misses Gosnell, of Chicago; Mai Porter Weakly, Daisy DeWitt and Eula Patterson, of Nashville; Florida Franklin, Annie Brown, Jane Edwards, Mary Bugg Peyton, Jane Vinson, Sarah Foster, Kate Buchanan, Lucy Prince, Ellie Barr, Margaret Allen, Grace Franklin, Minnie Brown, Martha Rogan, Augusta Rogan, Etta Lewis, Lizzie Lewis, Lula Lewis, Edna Schell, Edna Allison, Claribel Turner, Nettie Prince, Montrey Barnes, Kate Seay, and Jennie Haslam, Messers.

Knights of Pythias

It was a great day for Gallatin when the corner stone of the Pythian University was laid and right royally did the town celebrate it.  The local committee, prominent among whom are Messrs.

A Floater Found
Body of an Unknown Man Found in a Mass of Debris
Will Smith, a colored farm hand, discovered the body of a man lodged in a drift between the old Hyde's Ferry and the new bridge yesterday afternoon.  Deputy Coroner M. S. Combs was sent for soon after 4 o'clock and he made an investigation, but so far no conclusion has been arrived at as regards to the floater's identity.
The man was well dressed and appeared to be about 35 years old, and rather thickly set.  Though very badly decomposed, it could be seen that he had heavy black or brown hair and a moustache, part of which was gone. He wore two coats, and the top one was buttoned tightly and close up to his neck.  His features were no aid to identification.
A testament found in one of his pockets had no name in it and his only other possessions were some 38 caliber cartridges.  This led to the belief that probably he had killed himself.  A small hole was found in the side of his head, but probing showed that it did not penetrate the skull.  A dead dog was found near the body and it was evident that both had been dead several weeks.
The verdict of the jury was to the effect that the man to them was unknown and that the cause and manner of his death were uncertain.
Wilson, Haynes & Dougherty, the county undertakers, took charge of the remains and removed them to the pest-house, where they will be buried today.

Clew Found At Last
Concerning the Floater Found at Hyde's Ferry Bridge
Indications That the Body was that of Rev. Nolan
Peculiar Circumstances Surrounding the Case
The publication of an item in the Banner yesterday concerning a sorrel mare left at Singer & Bennett's livery stable about three weeks ago was not only instrumental in restoring the animal to its owner, but it furnished a clew as to the identity of the drowned man found day before yesterday in driftwood near the Hyde's Ferry bridge.
On the night of April 18 a man rode in to the stable of Singer & Bennett, on North Cherry street, and put up his horse for the night.  In response to the clerk's inquiry he gave his name as Nolan.  He made some inquiries as to the time he could get into the stable the next morning, and the answer being satisfactory the man took his departure.  Little attention was paid to the man's appearance, as hundreds enter the stable daily.  The clerk remembers him as being medium-sized and probably weighing 140 pounds.  He was nicely dressed and wore a moustache with a small goatee.
Time wore on and no one came to claim the mare and growing uneasy, Mr. Bennett yesterday reported the occurence to the station-house.  Lieut. Curran asked a Banner reporter to make a note of it, and the item was published yesterday.
It seems that ex-Deputy Sheriff Wm. C. Cantrell, of Sumner County, had been in the city several days previous looking for a mare such as was described in the Banner.  He visited nearly every stable in the city, but failed to go to Singer & Bennett's.  The proprietor of one of the stables visited, noticed the Banner's article, and suspecting that the animal was the one wanted, he notified Cantrell of the fact.  The latter came to Nashville this morning and clearly identified the mare.
He knew nothing of the finding of the drowned man, but the statements he made of the mare's disappearance undoubtedly convicts the two.  The mare was loaned to Nolan, a young preacher from Smith County, on April 18, by a farmer named Ashworth, living near Gallatin, for the purpose of riding to Edgefield Junction, where he was to preach on that day.  Nolan failed to return the next day, and nothing had ever been heard of him or the mare until the notice of the latter was seen in the paper.  Nolan filled his engagement at Edgefield Junction, and it is presumed that he rode on into Nashville to spend the night.
The body found in the river fits Nolan's description in many respects.  The man found wore a sandy moustache, with nearly one whole side pulled out, probably from coming in contact with the drift wood in which he was found.  The corpse had no goatee, but it is probable that this too might have been rubbed off, as the body was badly decomposed.  The finding of a testament in the dead man's clothing is another point in favor of the clew that the corpse is that of Nolan, as it is quite natural that a minister of the Gospel should carry one around with him.

Mrs. Sam Maxwell and little son George of Hazel street, have returned home from a visit to Mr. and Mrs. George Hill, of Sumner County.

Miss Kate Hill of Gallatin, is with South Nashville friends.

A Barn Burned and Six Horses Destroyed in Sumner County

Nichols, whose barn was ignited  by lightning and burned to the ground, together with its contents, including six head of horses and a large quantity of hay.  The insurance was $1,000.

William Henry Johnson, the youngest son of Mr. Jacob Johnson, of Springfield, was bitten and seriously injured Tuesday by a dog supposed to be mad, in Springfield.  The boy was on his way to school, when he was met by the dog and thrown to the ground. His left arm and shoulder were lacerated by the dog's teeth and several gashes were cut in the child's body.  He was stunned by the fall and it was some time before assistance was rendered.
Finally the dog was driven off and the child was carried to his father's home.  On Wednesday he was brought here and taken to the residence of Mr. Alex Joseph, on Woodland street, where a mad-stone was applied to the wounds for several hours.  The stone adhered to the wounds and the boy seemed to be greatly relieved.  He was taken to his home in Springfield Wednesday night and was resting easy at last accounts.
