manner : The mistake of 50 in favor of Clark
by coaming one pile of sis ies twice. The mis

of Levy’s for Walton. 'J he mistake of 2

Movement to Fxcurt the National
Convention to Augusta.
The National Medical Convention
which meets in Atlanta on the 6th
of May will be one of the most im

in the South. It embraces the
the prominent physicians of the
whole United States and honors
Georgia with this year’s sessions. As
it is not probable that the South will
be able to entertain them again in
ten or twelve years, it is desirable
that they should see Georgia's strong
points. It is proposed, then, and
the idea meets with much favor, to
bring them down to Augusta on an
excursion, entertain them in the
city, take them over the Sand Hills,
up the canal, &c., and show them
Augusta’s hygienic advantages. It
may be of great use in inviting
Northern invalids to our solubrious

FIRE AT WADLEY
A Happy Home Swept Away and
Mr. J. F. Toole, of Wadley, camo
to thiscity on theeveningtrainyester
day accompanied by his wife, and was
stopping at the Central Hotel. The
two had gone down town and were
in a store buying confectionery for
the little children that they expected
to make happy on their return home
when a porter from the Central Ho
tel handed Mr. Toole the following
Bartow, Ga., Apiil 26. —Your
dwelling and store, and store of J.
K. Murphy, were burned last night,
at ten o’clock.
From Mr. Toole himself wc learn
that the insurance did not cover
more than one-fourth the value of
the property destroyed. He had but
recently expended considerable mo
ney in improving his place
and was keeping hotel and
all his future prospects were
bright and hopeful, when suddenly
came this unlooked for and dire
calamity. Mr. Toole is now only
twenty-seven years old; has a wife
and three small children; has been
in business for himself for thirteen
years, making his own start in the
world. He informs us that he has
clothed himself and paid his own
school bills ever since he was ten
years old. To a man thrown on his
own resources so early in life and
beginning his business struggles
without a dollar, the loss comes
sore and hard after years of toil and
economy to have all swept away
with one breath of the fire fiend.
On Broad street this morning evi
dences for Memorial Day were not

Mr. Berry Benson ran up the' sur

Jfhe Confederate battle flag was beau
tifully displayed from Platt’s stpre,
while a national banner was strung
across Ellis street in front of the
Mechanic engine house. At two
o'clock, however, the stores began to
close and tho streets assumed a
more holiday aspect.
Evans’ Society Bazaar.
The C. A. Evans Society will give
a grand bazaar and open a dinner
and lunch room on the 12th of May
—the day of lhe fireman’s parade.
This will be held in the old Augusta
shoe house, on Broad street, and
during the course of the day a mon
umental cake for the most popular
fireman will be voted; also a por
trait of Gen. C. A. Evans for the
most popular young lady. All
charges will be reasonable and no
raffling will be allowed.

The Vast Wealth Hidden in Georgia
Five years ago the mining in
terest in Georgia were dead. There
were only four gold mills in the
State, and the total yield was about
$40,000. Now there are forty-six
mills in the State and the yield is
over $500,000 per annum. These
mills cost fully SIO,OOO each, which
gives a total of about $500,000 in
vested in machinery alone against
$40,000 five years ago.. We now dig
from the ground—that is, we ab
solutely create-$5,000,<>00 per annum
in yellow gold in Georgia against
$40,000 per annum five years ago.
This enormous increase is directly
due to the discoveries made and
published by Dr. Little and his
But the greatest good in this di
rection is the increase of value of
lands. By the tracing of a gold vein
through a tract of land its value was
at once raised from $1 per acre to
SIOO. In his way the private pro
perties and the general assessments
have been, raised. Col. J. R. Sneed
sold the other lay for SI,OOO a piece
of Lind that he has held for five
years at ckij, It had been discovered
That a" rough it. Hon.
W. P Pri<fTowned a piece of land
that he offered at almost any price,
and could find no buyers. Dr. Little’s
men disco ered that there was gold
on it. Immediately it was sold for
$4,000 cash and a $12,000 mill put
on it. There were $16,000 of value
created, as it were. These cases
might be multiplied indefinitely.
Dr. Little has carefully defined the
gold belt, and he says that within it
over 1,000 lots of 400 acres each,
worth SIOO per acre, or $40,000,000,
that were not worth $1,000,000 five
years ago —or could have been
bought for that.
In gold mining, then, in five years,
therejhave|been $460,000 in machine
ry put in—the annual yield in
creased to $500,000 of yellow stuff —
and the values of the gold belt
raised from $1,000,000 to $40,000,000.
But without discussing the unde
veloped mines, we are authorized to
say that the mines of Georgia, in
actual operation to-day, could not
be bought for less than $5,0000,000,
and that the same property, five
years ago, could have been bought
for $500,000. This increase in pro
perty, if it were put on the tax
books, would pay the cost of the de
partment twice over.
Changing Its Tune
[From tin New Orleans Timos.[
The St. Louis “Globe-Democrat”
has changed its policy in regard to
the negro exodus. From first advis
ing the negroes to leave Mississippi
and Louisiana and go to Kansas, it
now advises the planters and land
owners of those States t« use every
exertion to keep them at home. The
fact is the Radicals of the West are
souring on their colored brothers
since they have bad so many of them
to feed and clothe. They would
rather that they should keep their
Too Much Sleep.
“God bless the man who first in
vented sleep.” So said Sancho Pan
za, and so say we. But there are
those who will not feel like blesiing
the man who has discovered that
there is danger as well as health and
happiness in slumber. The Golden
Rule rises up to warn us that there
is such a thing as too much sleep. It
says: “The effects of too much sleep
are not less signal than those arising
from its privation. The whose ner
vous system becomes blunted, so
that the muscular energy is enfee
bled, and the sensations and moral
and intellectual manifestations are
obtained All the bad effects of in
action become developed. The
memory is impaired, the powers of
imagination arc dormant, and the
minds falls into a kind of hebetude,
chiefly because the functions of tho
intellect are not sufficiently exerted,
when sleep is too prolongod or too
often repeated. To sleep much is not
necessarily to be a good sleeper.
Generally they are ' the poorest
sleepers who remain the longest in
bed —i. e., they awaken less refresh
ed than if the time of rising were
earlier by an hour or two. We com
mend this to those who cry “a little
more sleep and a little more slum
ber.” It does not effect newspaper
men who go.tq bed late and get up
Tho Coachman and the Hired Man.
[Chicago Times ]
Theres a nice distinction between
the tastes of the coachman and the

latter takes the wife and murders the

A deformed philosopher died in

Between the Eyes.
I Chicago Times ]
Beck hit James G. right between
theeyes. He quoted from a message
of Gov. Gary, of Pennsylvania, with
reference to the use of troops at the
polls, and asked the Senator from
Pennsylvania [if Gary was consid
ered a loyal man. Wallace replied
that he was a Major-General in the
Union army. “Here, then,” said
Beck, “I read from the message of a
Republican Governor, who went into
the war and fought, and didn’t hire
a substitute to fight for him.” As
he said this Beck looked squarely at
Blaine, who winced.
John Sherman's Friend.
The Jidea of August Belmont,

Gustav Schomberg, undertaking to
say who shall or who shall not be
the Democratic candidate for Presi

cheekiness. Monsieur Belmont may
be a very
Rothschilds, but his former position
of the Chairman of the National

an undue idea of his importance. A
