Drummers! Somehow I don’t like that
name for they are mighty nice gentlemen and
the name don't fit them. I've had to travel
with them and mix with them most every
day for two week? and thes' are a regular in
stitution. They are smart -nd well manner
ed and generally good looking, and the job
iicst set I ever met. They have rubb-M
against each other and borrowed one another s
wit and picked up good things by the wav
side until they sue splendid company. They
are always civil and polite, for their business
requires it. I asked one of them for a bet
ter name than drummer and lie gave me com
mercial traveler, tourists, evarigebzers, and
another said they were peripatetic gentle
men. They distribute a power of ■ loney on
the railroads and at the hotels and deserve
more consideration than they get. They
ought to travel at half prices for 1 have U
over several roads where they constituted
more than half the passengers and they are
traveling most all the time. But railroads
are getting mighty particular somehow. I
thought maybe I could slip along on a free
pass, ami so I hunted up tiie head man the
other day and told him as how I was a sort
of a newspaper man and was going about
making a few broken remarks for the benefit
of the libraries and my numerous offsprings
and considered myself a public malefactor,
but the fellow he never batted his eve nor
stopped reading bis newspaper. He just
pointed me to a printed card on the wall and
I perused it at ray leisure. It was in type
as red as a bloody shirt and the language
were as follows;
In those days there were no passes given.
Search the scriptures.
i’uou Guilt not pass.—Numbers 20, 18.
Suffer not a man to pass.—Judges 3, 29.
The wicked shall no more po,ss.—NT ; :
idiail 1, It).
None shall ever pass.—lsaiah 30, 10.
This generation shall not pass.—Mark 13,
Though they roar they shall not pass.—
Je re up ah 31, 12.
So they paid the fare and went.—Jonah
Well, I gave him t,o understand that I
wasent going to “roar” about the matter,
and so 1 paid ray fare and went, but I got
to wondering about all that Scripture, and
how a railroad man ever found it out. and so
I borrowed a book from Mr. Burke and in
looking over it I found there was right smart
law on the other side, for the scriptures say :
Then he shall go free without money.—
Exodus 21, 11.
Let the oppressed go free.—lsaiah 56, 6.
I will make the to pass.—Jeremiah 15,
He shall pass.—Habhakuk 1,11.
The passengers that pass.—Ezekiel 39,
It is a glory to pass.—Proverbs 19. 11.
Restrain net for me to ride. —2d Kings
I’m go : ng to poke that atom next time and
see how they like it. I like railroads. It
would be a good thing if the State would
make cm free to everybody and let ern gei
even by putting up the freight. If, wouh
make our people so sociable. There is a
power of comfort in riding on era and a wo
man who is afar off feels as much at home
in car as she does at the Markham or Brown’s
National at Macon. Traveling people feel a
kind of sympathy dor one another as they
light each other’s cigars and make acquaint
.nee without an intro taction. I always did
ike for a man to ask me for a light or
match or to read my newspaper. When the}
stop at a one-horse town they can abuse the
hotel, just like they was brothers. Every
town ought to have a good, nice, cleau hotel.
If it. can tbe had an}’ other way, the town
commissioners ought, to provide one at the
public expense just for the good name and
reputation of lire community. I’ve been
where everything smelt sloppy and the plates
didn’t shine and lira knife-handles were grea
sy and the back yard was all mud and the
nigs were kicked down tiie kitchen steps.
The peripatetics lost their usual hilarity and
gobbled down their vittels in a hurry just to
fill up and get away. One of em said he
managed to squeeze along at such places if
he could get boiled eggs and sweet potatoes,
for they couldn’t cont aminate them very ranch,
but the other day when he ordered eggs the
darky came back directly and says, “ Boss,
dident you say j’ou wanted dem eggs skara
blted.” “No.” said he, “Iwantthem boiled.”
After a little he came Lack again and said.
“ Boss, ha lent you just as live have them
eggs shambled“No, I told you,” said
he, “ I wanted them boiled.” “ Boss,” said
he in a whisper, “ I is afeered dem eggs ain’t
fresh enuf to bile, but dey will skamble
n ighty nice.”
Ilawkinsville keeps growing on. The
town is building up and is crowded with
wagons and old fashioned country trade—
the best trade in the world. I was astou

FOR THE PEOPLE.
c?s hardly out of their teens, and they are
running four stores in different places, sell
: *ng not leas than 0300,000, and everything
moved on like clockwork. These boys are
splendid business men of good habits, and
their devotion to their widowed mother is
| something more than filial. If I was a pret
itv Hawkinsville girl I would still hunt f.r
ono of ’em. shore, for a good son will make a
| good husband, and if they live ten } T cars they
; "’ill have just oodles of money. Charles
Kibbee looks as bright as a silver moon. I
found him at work in his (lower garden with
his lovely wife for an overseer, and he was
digging up rose geraniums that were six feet
across and throwing them over the fence.
Took up too much room, he said, and there
were plenty more left. The scene made me
homesick, and I long to go home and dig and
work among the flowers, with Mrs. Arp and
the children standing around, and hear her
sweet voice as she says : “ I was afraid you
would cut the roots of that jessamine, and .
shore enough you have.’’
What wonderful memories cluster around
old Midway and Milledgeville. How dim is
human foresight, how vain are human plans.
Georgia’s capital was first at Augusta, then
Louisville, then Milledgeville and now At
hanta. \\ hat grand old gentlemen used to
-12 at her in that f ime-honored but now desert
ed building. The great men have fallen in
in Israel and the places that, knew them have
goin> to decay. lam now here in old Kn
tonton, a town of splendid history—a coun
ty o' noble patriarchs. Here lived Mark A.
(V-oper i .l his youth, and Judge Harris, miJ
the Braum os, re and Alexander, and Reeds and
Lanes, and Clopt > and Fri-tpc;, and Iver
sons, and Shorters, and L. Q. C., and Mira
oe.au Lamar. Here is where Eli Shorter, and
John Mason, and Hump -Ouitii, and henry
I Branham, four wild young bloods, ail ? a re
j ligion together under the none ful preaching
jof Bishop Capers, and dident give back to
j mie another the money they ha 1 won at
ker, because Branham, who was a few thou
sand>he>cj, said the bishop told ’em they
must let tiie dead bury its dead. Here is the
old court house where presided in s* affolv
bguity Judges Early and Long-tree an ]
Roney and Meriwether and S. W. Harris
and Cone and Cobb and Hill and Herschel
V". Johnson. And last but not least, here is
where Joe Harris first saw the light and
played in the reel gullies and set type for the
noble Turner, who published the Country
man. I have just been looking over the old
bound volu'ons and find Joe's earliest efforts
ras a printer’s devil an 1 his later effusions as
a lover and a poet. He first assaulted liter
ature ae acouuudruraaier, by asking “whose
-on vy..e the strongest man ?” answer, “ Sam’s.”
V-. hat is the difference between a hatchet and
a feline? One is atommvhawk and the other
a tocDcy-cnt. Bat it was love, tender, gush
ing. romantic love, that developed his latent
powers. His lines on moonlight and the
bailie bird, and those addressed to Moselle.
Our Minnie Gray, Mary and Nellie White
are mot touchingly beautiful and pathetic,
and ought to be in a book. Joe wa3 a lover
then and didn’t spend much of hi3 time in
running after foxes and rabits. They had
too many legs for him. Hurr ah for old Put
nam—a grand old county yet—and is still
honored by the handsome, dignified and
learned Lawson, gave only one vote for Gar
field and did that just to keep the yankees
Horn saying she was solid for Hancock. Wm.
H. Seward lived here in his youth and left a
black mark behind him. Ills descendants
are now free and I hope his spirit is happy.
But I must stop, though I could fill pages
with interesting memories given me by ,id
father Edmund Reid, a venerable patriarch
who moved to this country in 1807, three years
before these lands were purchased from the
Creeks. It would be well for us and fur pos
terity if C. C. Jones or Grady would go ove:
the State and interview such men and write
up the history of the olden times before thev
have all gone to their rest.
But and >n't hurry up politics too fast. Let
us all rest a little and get breath. Toil our
people to go slow. Its a thing that will keep
w’lthoi! me. There's n battle imui nent —
no imp :’.', iug storm, but all will go along
•aim and serene for about Hire* years at
least. Wh&lis Ben Hill iu such a dickens
of h hurry Tout. If we have got to break
up the soli 1 south and split up the democrat
ic party, there's plenty of time to do it. I
suppose. Mien the spiiteomes, we will all have
to pair off, and so me and Bon can just qni
■Uy fix it between ourselves. I’ll tie a dem

How Watches are Made-
It will be apparent to any one, who will
examine a SOLID GOLD WATCH, that
aside from the necessary thickness for en
graving and polishing, a large proportion of
the precious metal used, is needed only to
stiffen and hold the engraved portions in
place, and supply the necessary solidity and
strength. The surplus gold is actually need
less so far as utility and beauty are con
oerned. IN JAMES BOSS’ PATENT
GOLD \\ ATCII CASES, this waste of pre
cious metal is overcome, and the same so
lidity and strength produced at from one
third to one-half of the u-uiul cost of solid
cases. This process is of the most simple
nature, as follows: a plate of nickle compo
sition metal, especially adapted to the pur
pose, has two plates of solid gold soldered
one on each side. File three are then passed
between polished steel rollers, and the re
mit is a strip of heavy plated composition.
! Von which the cases, backs, centres, bevels.
&c.. are cut and shaped by suitable dies and
for ners. The gold in these cases is sufli
ciently thick to admit of ail kinds of chasing,
engraving and enamelling ; the engraved
oases have been carried until worn perfectly
smooth by time and use without removing

HOW TRET ENGAGED TN A RELIGIOUS DIS
Some nights ago Rev. Mr. Mnlbury, a
Presbyterian minister, and Rev. Mr. Sassa
frass Swing, a Methodist circuit rider, stopped
at a hotel in Little Rock. Tiie *no rnen had
held union meetings and were friends. They
agreed to occupy the same room, and when
they had been shown up a pleasant conversa
tion on the genera! welfare of the church was
introduced by Mr. Muihury.
“Ten.” said brother Sassafrass Swing,
placing hi3 feet on the round of the chair and
: beginning the work of removing his shoe, “ it
is good that preachers of different denomina
, tioris talk to each other.”
“It advances the can so,” replied Mr. Mnlhu
| ; T- “ U moves the gospel car with more
i celerity for ministers to exchange ideas.”
“ Mg Mnlbury, why is it that you ai’ers
; say minister ? You ain’t ashamed of preacher.
; are you ?"
I “ I sav minister because it is correct. I
was taught at college to speak correctly, and
j I intend to do so.”
“ Peter, tiie fisherman, clid’t have no such
“No, Kii.i l’eter could not present the
gospel so eloquently and feelingly as Paul.”
“Paul might have had more book lamin’,
but when you struck him on the subject of
horse sense, Peter was the captain. I have
said il many • nd many a time, and I expect

Ninety Kites an Hour.
The New York Sun says : “There has
just turned out from the Grand Locomotive
\\ orks, in Patterson, N. J., anew locomotive
'• p--e!iur construction, intended for the
Pittsburg. Fort Ws-yne and Chicago railroad.
Eugene Fontaine, the inventor, claims that
this locomotive can be tue.de to vo ninety
■odes an bout - , while the machinery is run no
taster than that of an ordinary locomotive
traveling at the rate of sixty miles an hour,
the machinery is all on top of the Imibr. in
stead ot uno.cr it. The driving wheel rests
on suo-her wheel, which in turn re>t.s on tlie
track. r l his lower wheM has two rims, one a
foot smaller than the other. The outer rim
touches the track, and the inner or smaller
rim supports the driving wheel. The motion
ot the diiviii:' wheel time, couununiinilcd is
maguifiH hy this arrangement so that the
lower wheel turns one-third faster limn the
! riving wheel, and so the speed is increased,
i lic smaller riui of the lower wheel bears to
the larger rim a relation similar to that of a
very large hub to any wheel. Of course any
'•ate of motion communicated to Mich a huh
is greatly magnified at the periphery of the
wheel. In the same way the mot ion of the
driving wheel in this ease is magnified by the
peculiar arrangement of the wheel it rest
upon. Mr. Fontaine believes that his loco
motive, if it were not for the increased resis
tance of the air, could he run at, the rate of
107 miles an hour. He expects it to make
•JO miles an hour easily.”
How Dry it Was.
An lmaest oid farmer from the country
gave his recollection of the hot spell as fol
“F was so dry we couldn't spare water to
put in our whisky. The grass was so dr.
that every time the win i blew it flew around
tke so much ashes. There wasn’t a tear shed
and. a funeral for a month. The snn dried up
*H hie cattle, and burned off the hair till they
looked like Mexican hogs; and the sheep
looked like poodle puppies, they shrank up
so. Wo had to soak all our hogs to make
them hold swill, ami if any c .tr . and ed in tin
morning they would be dried beef at dark.
I he woods dried up so that the fanners chop
ped seasoned timber ail through August,
hero ain t a ma'cn through all the country
—in fact, no wedding since the Widow Glen:;
married old Laker, three months ago. What
few grass-hoppers are left are all skin and
legs, and I didn’t hear a tea kettle sing for
'ix weeks. We eat our potatoes baked, they
being all read}', and we couldn't spare water
to boil them. Ajl the red haired girls were
afraid to stir out of the house in daylight;
and I tell you the truth, I was afeard the old
fellow with the cloven foot had moved out of
his old home, and settled down with us for
life. Why, we had to haul water a’l summer
to keep the ferry-boat running, and—say. it*s
getting dry ; let’s take suthin’, all around.”

What Not Vo Kill.
I he Frer.ch minister of finance has done a
good deed in causing a placard to be posted,
which it would he wise for citizens of all
c ountries to have before their eyes. It tells
Inr mors, ’porhsiuen, boys and others what
creatures not to kill, as follows:
lledge-hog—Lives mostly on mice, small
rodents, slugs and grubs—animals hurtful to
agriculture. Don t kill the hedge-hog.
i oad—l< arm assistant; he destroys twenty
to thirty insects per hour. Don’t kill the
Mole—Ts continually destroying grubs,
: ar\;e, palmer-worms, and insects injurious
to agriculture. No trace of vegetation is
ever found in its stomach. Don’t kill the
IYrds—Each department loses several mil
lions annually through insects. Birds are the
only enemies able to contend against them
vigorously. They are the great caterpillar
killers and agricultural assistants. Children,
don’t disturb their nests.
Lady -bird—Never destroy, for they are the
best friends of farmers and horticulturists,
and their presence upon nphis-riden plants is

he has the following to say in regard to cot

Hayti is more and more neglected. Our
dilierent hydraulic presses have been dis
mounted for want 01 work. Ourcotton plants
