The Herald’# new Standard War At

seems to he well planned to answer the
questions which people are asking
about countries In different parts of
the world. The maps are In sufficient
detail to be entirely intelligible, and the
low price at which the atlas Is pub
lished, 30 cents, will make Ignorance
unpardonable. Realising the value of
such an atlas The Augusta Herald ar
ranged with the publishers fqr a special
edition. As this new atlas Is not for
sale at any of the stores, our readers
should hasten to send for a copy be

FIRST GEORGIA RFO.riENT.
The Boy* I Ike Their New C*mp at
Knoxville, Tenn., Aug. 26. The
iiham <s are now that the F.rat Geor
gia regiment will soon lie brigaded
with th* Fourth Tenn esse*, which was
mustered her* and never left. If this
assignment is made to All out the First
brigade on the Second division, the
Tennessee boys and the Georgia boys
will be next door neighbor*
The boys like their new camp better
every day and the Crackers are favor
ites wirh the people of Knoxville. Some
of the Georgia papers have published
that the men of the First Georgia were
very anxious to be mustered out. From
all accounts this Is true In the ease of
u few of the men. but the regiment, as
a whole, seems anxious to stay In ser
vice, and do garrison duty. The men
do not have much to say In regard to
the matter and It seems that reports
sent South have been terrtbly exagger
Col. Lnwton was asked about the
statement made through the press that
his men desired to be mustered out,
“I have no Information on the sub
ject except what I yee in the newspa
pers. None of my men have communi
cated with the ofllqera on the subject,
and this is the only channel through
which such communications should go.
I have never undertaken to say wheth
er the first Georgia desires to be mus
tered out or not, and for two reasons:
First. I do not know, and on this sub
ject 1 should not undertake to speak for
my men without first knowing their
opinions, but. secondly and chiefly, be
cause I think no true soldier should ex
press such wishes, one way or the oth
er, until he is asketl to do so by com
petent authority, and we have not been
asked. When we are asked, if ever,
1 will take steps to inform myself and
will then answer the question through
regular military channels. I hope it is
not trug that-my mpjt have signed any
such unsoldieriy statement as are at
tributed to them in t,be press.”

VALDOSTA’S NEW RAILROAD.
The Right of Way Cleared For Ten
Vaidnata. 0# Aug It - Work on tha
Atlantic, Valdosta and Western road Is
' progressing rapidly toward this city.
| The rtgbt-cf-way has been cleared for
ten miles this aide of Haylcw and con*
jtrarta for building most of the remain
der of the line have been let. The rainy
| weather baa Interrupted the work eon-
I sidcrably of lota, but now that the
, rains have ceased it will be pushed
1 along with great rapidity.
The road will have a straight track
; for a distance of thirty-four miles from
| Valdosta and will he, perhaps, the
l longest air line In the state, with the
exception of the Plant system from
here to Way cross there not being a
crook in that for a distance of sixty
j five miles. The rails which are being
laid on the Atlantic, Valdosta and
Western are seventy pound steel rails
1 and trains are running over the sev
enty miles of track already completed
at splendid speed. It is understood that
1 the new road will have friendly con
nection here with the Southern railway
i and If so. It means that the Southern
! is going to make a stronger bid than
jever before for Florida traffic The dis
tance between At’.nnta and Jackson
-1 vllle will be shortened about thirty
1 ml'es bv this new line.
! The Valdosta Southern road Is wlth
;ln eight miles of Madison, Fla., and
will probably be comnleted before No
vember. Work upon the road Is being
pushed through every day.
Rattler Killed In Valdosta.
Valdosta. Ga., Aug. 26.—One of the
largest rnttlesnukes seen In this sec
tion this year was killed within the
corporate limits by a son of Rev. C. H.
Driver. The monster snake was ac
companied by Vwenty-three little ones
and when young Driver came upon
them the old snake opened her mouth
and the little ones ran dcivn her
throat like "chute-the-chute" riders.
The lad got a rail and quickly dispatch
ed the old snake and then turned his
attention to the little ones, which
were wiggling and writhing about on
the ground. All of them were killed.
.The old snake measured six feet In
! length and had fifteen rattles. It was
! killed within a hundred yards cf Mr.
Driver’s residence on Ashley street.
