COMPLAINT OF A DISAFFECTED FARMER WQO
WHICHTHE FARMER THINK3 0CGHT *£
[From tlie Providence Journal.]
Mttur Editor: 1 haint no edication, and
I thank God for it. Gov. Lippitt said in
his college speech that edication paid better
than a mortgage at six per cent
Gov. Lippitt, I ask you, have you got
such things as three highly edicated sons on
your hands, what can’t supp it themselves,
and all living on the old man? You know
you hain’t, and as 1 have, I guess I know as
moch about this edication matter as yon do.
I cuss the day when liturrav ambishun broke
out in my family—I fit three eoqs to kollege,
and if I had not had one left to stay on the
farm and wurk with me, we should all ou ns
be taken a deep interest in the annual appro
priations for the poor of the town.
My Silas studied law, and all the write he
has yet seen has been on bisself. He has to
aware out of jail three times a week, regular
trips he makes, Monday, Wednesday and
Friday, like the Rhode Island from Stoning-
He has got a pretty little hoffis as ever you
see, with the legal work of Smollet, Byrons,
and all them jurists ranged on shelves—the
portraits of Rufus Chote and that gurl what
dances so good at the theatur, hung up on
the walla We furnished him with all those
necessaries of the legal profession, and ak
though he smokes and drinks beer, and does
all a young lawyer ought to do to win con
fidence ana public esteem, it is all no go.
He belongs to ten secret societies, and I
tell him I wish to God he’d jine one so secret
that his creditors could not find him.
He buys all his tobacco in my name for
fear of its getting attached, and as for his
beer, he dnnks up five dollars’ worth at a
time, and then swears right out on it He
is getting low spirited now, and says that
all the Blackstone he wants to know about
is the Blackstone river, with a big stone tied
to his heels, which made bis mother cry, but
I told him be was of age, and 1 bad no eon*
trol over him.
Poor Silas, when be graduated at koUqge,
hisorashun was on “A classical edication in-
durspensible to success in life.”
His mother and I cried in the Baptist
Church when «e heerd him deliver it, we
did’n know what fur then, bnt hev since
found out. I tell Silas that the onlv chance
I see ahead for him to take to drink strong,
then reform, and may be the temperance
folks will shove him along to keep him moral
and steady, a;.,. * ’> - ,
My t’other boy, Ezra, studied to be a doc
tor. The first case he bad was Hawkins,
that was gored so bad by Olney’s big bull.
Hawkins had six good still horns aboard of
his own before the bull muxed with him,
which made it a bad case. Ezra watated to
be sure, so he gave him all the medicine he
had on hand at ouce. Just as Hawkins was
dying he writ an afiydavit that the treatment
be received from the bull was generous and
humane compared with that of fits doctor.
Hawkins’ widow sued for malpractic, and her
lawyer told the juiy that M. D. stood for
murderous doses, and that Ezra was drank,
and that he was a doctor oi many drams but
fewscruples. At this joke the Judge and
jury laughed like split, and they gin a big
verdict against Ezra, and he had to run on
He drors small drafts on me often, so we
know that he is alive, which is. more of a
comfort to his mother than to myself. When
Ezra graderated, his orashnn was on “Knol-
lego a Purtection against the Kalaaraities of
life.” His mother and I cried bad then, and
we have since found out why.
But the saddest case of all was poor little
Calvin. At the time when unthinking
youths are spent in laying stone walls or
loeing corn, Galvin was seriously thinking
of a more important work of saving souls.
He entered college and was finally settled
owes • Ians parish at Helbura Woods,
For a few years things went smooth. He
not only saved other souls, but he meekly ac
cepted his portion of the trials and discipline
of life by getting married and raising up a
little famUy of souls of his own manufac
Then his parish got tired of him and told
him to quit, and they turned him off as they
do ministers, by passing a lot of resolutions
about the pain it gives to sunder such ten
der and hallied tiea
He and his hall family come home to us,
and arter we got about used up with them,
I got Calvin’s life insured for all I could, and

Fot tho Athena Dally Gaoigiao.'
University of Georgia, ) 2}
Medical Department, t
Augusta, Oct. 10,1875. )
Pleasant A. Stovall Esq^ Local Editas
Athens Daily Georgian;
Dear Sir—I received your letter of the
8 th inst„ yesterday, in which you detire to
have my views in relation to the recent
poisoning at the wedding party. at Dalton.
It appears by the articles in ike news
papers, that the poisoning was tbrough the
ice cream which bad been flavored by the
essential oil of bitter almonds, or by peach
leaves: It is evidently nqt known general
ly in tbe community, that either of these
flavors is highly poisono-tifif used in undue
amounts, and although a sufficient quanti
ty may be employed as a flavor without
Ming poisonous, it manifestly is a hazard
ous matter to use any article of flavoring in
the household, which may, if improperly
employed, produce fatal effects
There are two kinds of oil extracted from
the bitter almond; one a fixed oil, which
when the kernels are cold pressed, is innox
ious like that of the ordinary sweet almond;
the other is an essential or volatile oil, hav
ing the peculiar odor and taste whieh are
well known, and which is used for flavors
and perfumes: This poisonous oil does not
exist in the kernels ready formed, bnt is
developed through the action of water on
one of the constituents called Amydalin.
The poison thus chemically developed, u
mainly Prussic acid, the most formidable
of all known poisons in the rapidity of its
action; it has the odor of peach blossoms,
and thus is readily recognized. Hie ker
nels of the pfeach, plum and cherry, and the
leaves of toe peach and laurel, also yield
this highly poisonous volatile acid. But
tbe bitter almond oil even when purified
from this acid, is still poisonous, hot in a
much less degree.
An artificial almond oil, or almond es
sence, (nitro-Benxole) is manufactured by
the chemist having the same odor and fla
vor in*a strong degree, which is largely em
ployed for perfumery and cosmetics. The
use of this artificial product, has left the
real bitter almond oil almost entirely for
flavors, its taste being held superior; the
artifical oil is much less poisonous, still its
use as a flavor is objectionable, as well as
the so called apple and pea oils or essences,
which are also manufactured in the chem
Prussic acid, (hydro-cyanic) the main
poisonous agent in the oil of almonds and
peach leaves, os has already been stated—
has long been known for its extreme fatal
activity, and small amounts required to
cause death; even the vapor or concentrat
ed odor inhaled, is said to have resulted
fatally. Death may result in two minutes,
and like the effects of lightning, the person
in general either dies speedily, or recovers
The poison hence from almdnd essence,
or flavor, if taken in sufficient quantity,
raay produce death very speedily, or,.if in
less amount, the person, may recover from
its effects without any injurious results.
Twenty drops of the oil,.or two teaspoon*
fuls of the essence, may prove fatal to an
adult, but a much less quantity would bq,
fetal to a young boy or girl.
It may be proper to add, that this oil is
also sometimes employed in the preparation
of cosmetics for the skin, which hence
should be regarded as poisonous artioles,
which might result in local paralysis, or
even in death, if the skin should be
abraded. Respectfully yours,
Geo. W. Rains, M. D.
Professor of medical Chemistry.

Stricture of Law.—Red Tafe in a
Court Room.—And now it comes to us
that a venerable and well known titisen of
our city, who has been Uving here for some
thing over fifty years, went up yesterday in
the office of the Clerk of Court to register,
and there, with a Bible in hand, in tbe aw
ful solemnity of a sacred ootii, in the sight
of God and presence of man, had to swear
that he was 21 years of age and had been
living in Athens six months.
Farmers should set about im
stock. It don’t pay to put (20 worth of
feed into a bullock that will bring you hut
$30, when the same amount of feed in a
good one will bring $50 or $60. The same
is true of hogs. Hundreds of fortunes are
annually squandered by the waste of grain
and feed expended on poor stock. Let eve
ry farmer do his utmost to improve his
stock the coming spring.
Episode last Friday, Oconee Fair.—

says, “two to one on the bay. Governor!”

explained that he was just winding up his
watch, bnt Yonng blood thinks it too thin.

twelve hundred dollars in Elberton, was
ca ried to that, place Tuesday night. In
onr notice of the case we stated that the
prisoner was arrested by Mr. B. O. W.

For the following address by Dr.

loaned it to us for publication.
Dr. McCaul then rose to introduce the

There seems to be some doubt as to who
arrested the thief from Elbert county who
stole the silver. ’ We at first stated Mr.
Rose, of the police foroe, was the man.
Upon the authority of Mr. Vole, of onr city,
we gave the latter gentleman the credit of
the arrest; and now comes Mr. Rose to sub
stantiate his first statement, : in a card.
However that may be, the negro is se
cured, the reward will be forthcoming, we

th of the disputants; and the conndenoe
gent of Elberton doubtless tiiinka that, al

path is somewhat thorny.
Nor a bad story is told about a young
editor who runs a village sheet not a thou
sand miles from Athens, and who now re
joices in the appellation of 44 Trained Jour
nalist Jr.” This gentleman, as the sneo-
dote goes, attended a ball down the Athens
Branco, and while there was treated, to-
gether with others, to some fine press
cigars, by a tobacco dealer of ont city. Ye
shnger ofthe quill, taking bis cigar in his
hand, looking at it attentively ana turning
it slowly around^ finally .ended his exami
nation by indignantly throwing it behind
him, and when asked why’ he did so, he
swore and be dinged that he wouldn’t
smoke any man’s cigar after he had been
setting on it.
