Church every Wednesday night.
We have had the management of the Forest
News for three years. During that time we
have been just as indulgent to our subscribers
as it was possible to be. The result is that
the most of them have been reading our paper
from year to year and have never said a word
about paying us. The time has come for a
settlement, and we are going to have it, and
we respectfully and earnestly ask all who
owe us to pay us the money. It is a small
amount, and we know you can easily pay it,
for we have credited none but those who we
thought were honorable and good for their
debts. We know that in most cases it is
negligence, and you think no harm will come
from it, but right there you are mistaken. It
occasions us serious, and sometimes fatal,
inconveniences. Hereafter wo shall credit
no one for over twelve months, and we notify
all who are in arrears to come up and settle,
or your paper will be stopped and your ac
counts collected. If it is not convenient for
you to come to town, send the moiffey and we
will receipt yon for it, for the money we must
Mu. Editor For ear News — Dear Sir: —
During the recent snow some of our people
killed up a great many rabbits—more than
could be consumed —and have put them away
in pickle. Will you be kind enough to let
us know through the columns of your paper
if there is any market for this kind of meat?
And if so, what is it worth per pound ?
Yours, truly, Subscriber.
Harmony Grove, Jan. 12 th, 1881.
In reply to the above question, we are sorry
to state that at present, owing to the over
stocked condition of our market, there is no
demand for pickled rabbits at remunerative
figures. However, as there is a scarcity of
other kinds of meat in our town, we can safely
promise our enterprising neighbors that it
will not be long until there will be an active
demand for pickled rabbits, when we think
they will be able to work off their surplus
stock at a handsome profit. However, we
give, for our enquirer’s benefit, yesterday’s
quotations as follows : Prime pickled rabbits,
@lO to 11| cents each. Market firm. One
year olds, 12 to 13| cents. Buyers object to
the stock cured during the recent big snow,
especially to those killed on Sunday, as they
say most of that kind of stock js poor, and
was not in the best condition when killed.

and less every day ; the ducks and geese have
quit growing feathers ; the women and babie3
are grumbling and growling about the meal,
the flour and the wood being out, and it is too
cold for the old men to help themselves; the
horses are standing up in their stalls eating
their heads off; the dogs have ceased to bark ;
the rabbits have all been killed, and it seems
that it will not be a matter of much thought
to figure out what the closing scene will be if
the bad weather holds on a few weeks longer.
Notes from Thompson’s Mills.
Editor Forest News :—Not seeing any
thing in your excellent paper from this place
for some time, I will scratch you a few linos.
The election is over, and everybody is glad
of it. Although many voters and very many
candidates have been disappointed, yet 1
think our people, as a general thing, are very
well satisfied. May the good Lord deliver us
from ever witnessing again so much button
holing and negro courting. Such things are
not only derogatory to Christian character,
but simply disgraceful.
Our farmers have quit politics, and are now
turning their attention to the farm. Another
big preparation for cotton and a liberal use of
Our mill at this place is undergoing repairs.
Mr. E. M. Thompson has employed that extra
good miller, Mr. Taylor Roberts, for this year,
who has never failed to give general satisfac
tion to all as a miller. Mr. Thompson has
had his bolting cloth made new, and guaran
tees satisfaction in both quality and quantity
of flour. So, if you villageites get out of meal
or flour, come or send over to E. M. Thomp
son’s mill and get supplied.
\Ye are all rejoiced over this way that Dr.
Seale has been sent back to preach for us
another .year, and trust that he may be as
successful in the future as a preacher of the
Gospel as lie lias been in the past. We all
love good man of the Lord. We expect
to secure the services of brethren Deavours,
Ross ard Seymour to preach occasionally
during the year at our church, as they aided
Dr. Seale greatly during the past year.
We are intending to have a good school at
our church for this year, and arrangements
are being made at this time. Also, a singing
society once a month, and shall use the old
familiar Sacred Harp as our book, and change
when desired to the new book called New
Life. Have secured the services ofourgeni
al-sonled fellow-citizens, Capt. T. L. Ross and
R. B. Cox, as leaders, and extend a cordial
invitation to all, and especially the White
head family, to come, one and all, and bring
your old-fashioned Sacred Ilarp. Our first
singing will be at Thompson’s School-house,
ou the 4tli Sunday in January, 1881, at 2
o’clock P. M.
I see from reading your paper that yon
have omitted to publish the marriage of our
young fnsnd W. S. Thompson, Jr., to Mrs.
Laura Suddath. Billy seem3 to survive his
marriage relation very well.
I see that the Council of Jefferson has
raised the liquor license to one thousand dol
iar3. I think that a good move in the right
direction. Now let the voters in the 245th
District vote liquor out, and we may have a
better time in the future. Everybody and
their wives are in favor of it out our way ;
even men who are in the habit of drinking
will vote for no liquor. We all know that,
liquor is our big evil, and the writer of thi3
article knows more of its evils possibly than
any other man in Georgia, and he would have
been glad to have had the privilege of signing
the petition the first man. It is said that
! prohibitary tax will not stop the evil. But
let us. in the fear of God, do our whole duty,
if the heavens fall.
It is said that the evil can’t be suppressed
after the tax is raised so high that liquor ven
ders can’t pay it. I think that fault is in the
officers whose duty it is to look after viola
tors of the law, and if the police force in the
towns and cities are not sufficient to suppress
it, I think it would he decidedly cheaper to
employ a larger force than it would be to he
taxed to pay the innumerable litigations im
posed upon the tax-payers by the results of j
whisky shops. To make liquor is taking the
childrens bread and giving it to the Jogs;
besides, it damns the souls of thousands of
men who otherwise might he useful citizens.
Yours, very truly, Reader. .
Thompson's Mills , Jan, 10th, 1881.
The Whisky Question.
Mr. Editor: —An editorial in your last
issue, headed " A Dry Town,” attracted my
attention, and has influenced me to write you
on this subject.
My first statement is that I am for Prohibi
tion to the strict letter of the word. And in
thus stating my position, I am not for making
war upon an;/ man or any set of men. lam
waring for every man. woman and child in
the land, and am waring against that out of
which grows the greatest evils that to day
curse society. We may fight wrong-doing as
much as we may ; wc may deplore the fact
that murder has been committed, and may
stand up for the vindication of the law upon
the person of the murderer; we may feel
grieved that a good citizen has fallen through
the influence of strong drink, and that his
wife and children are left without a natural
protector, and that they arc left homeless and
degraded. We ma} T do all of this, and our
sympathies may be aroused in behalf of the
degraded and outcast everywhere, but what
avails all this when we. by legal enactment,
tolerate that from which springs nineteen
twentieths of all crime and evil in our midst?
The people are responsible for the exist
ence of dramshops and still-houses. The
people that call themselves Christians—who
have their names upon church rolls, and who
feel it to be an honor to be called church
members—are responsible for this great ex
isting evil in our own midst.
The people who arc not members of the
churches, and who wish society we!!, are re
sponsible also for its existence. The ques
tion is one that rests with the people, and
when the people, in the majesty of their
strength, shall rise up and declare that this
traffic in human life and character shall cease,
there will be an end of bar rooms and drunk
Our Town Council has spoken, and the
good people of the town and county sav to
them, ** well done, goo 1 and faithful servants.”
Let the people now of the town and county
sustain the Council in its endeavors to make
the community better. And let not the work
stop here, but let it go on until there isuota
dramshop in our county.
But, we are advised to go slow on this sub
ject. Why go slow when ray sous and daugh
ters, and my neighbors’ sons and daughters
are likely to be swallowed up by this monster ?
Whose son is safe ? Whose daughter is se
cure ? What protection have we against it ?
My answer is, so far as the protection that
the law gives us, it is left in our own hands,
and all that we can do is to strike quick,
strike vigorously, and continue to strike until
victory comes and the morning of our deliv
This is our remedy, and our only remedy.
Let us, therefore, take the matter in our own
hands, and demand of those whom we have
honored by placing them in positions of trust,
to give to us their official sanction in helping
us in this great work.
Whenever the people call upon them in that
spirit of respectful determination to thus aid
them, the help will come, and come freely.
They wait to serve us, and ars willing to do
so whenever the people ask it. And when
the people and their officials rise up and say
to the monster. “Your work must cease,”
their mandate will he obeyed.
But I am told again that it would be belter
to have this evil brought out into open day
light than to have it groping in the dark. I
answer, my own soul. God being my helper,
I will deliver. If an evil exists, it shall not
exist by my consent. Wrong-doing I will net
recogonize or sanction, in any form or way.
or by any one, be it who or in what way it
may, if I know it. We are not called upon
to choose between two evils in this ease. The
only question is, shall the manufacture and
sale of ardent spirits be tolerated in our coun
ty or not. Let us raise our voices and cast
our votes, and make use of all laudable means
within our power, to put a stop to it, and then,
when we have gone hence, an appreciative
posterity will rise up and call us blessed.

Proceedings of the Jackson Cos. Teachers
Matsville Ga., Jan. 7, 1881.
This body having assembled in the Mays
vilie Institute building, was called to order
by a private member, a due examination hav
ing disclosed the fact that none of the regu
lar officers were present.
After some delay, but with entire unanim-
R3'. temporary officers werr elected and in
The regular programme was taken up, and
the Chorister led offi in that master chiorus,
“ The Music of the Spheres.” The andienco
was entranced, judging by th.o undisturbed
repose that for several minutes followed.
The reading of the minutes of the last
meeting were called for, anti tho Secretary
pro. tern., who i9 a scholar, reported non .sunt.
(1 suppose he meat, not sent, but these teach
ers will pronounce some words barbarously.)
The Welcome Address was then called for.
The speaker arose, his bosom heaving with
emotion, and his vocal organs paralyzed by
the pressure of feelings struggling for utter
ance. When the barrier yielded, the clfect
was indescribable. The row of the mighty
cataract and the murmur of the gentle stream,
the glowing fervor of the volcano and tho
frozen stateliness of tho iceburg, the ardity
of the Sahara and the luxuriance of the Am
azon were as beautifully blended as ever
were the seven primary colors, and with a
similar effect. The falling of a pin might
have been heard, if the pin had been there;
but a3 it was, no sound was heard save tho
warm applause of the generous fire that had
been kindled for tiie occasion, and the sweet
music of sympathy zing tears as they trick
led down beauty’3 cheek and in humility
kissed the floor.
It is said that silence is eloquence, and if
that be true, then that welcome address was
eloquence indeed. One of the most notice
able effects was an entire suspension of bus
iness, without a motion, for one hour. (This
was certainly a most expressive tributo to
The long silence was broken by a motion
to adjourn for dinner. This motion was
unanimously adopted, and, as the vast as
sembly wended its way to the nearest dwell
ing, it could but ponder the unanimity that
had characterized the morning session.
Arrived at tho dwelling, the number of
members present was exactly doubled, and
some fear was entertained that the morning
unanimity might he broken. Hut business
was resumed, and subjects previously placed
upon tho table wero taken up, ruminated,
and satisfactorily disposed of in executive
The session rose and returned to the In
stitute building. where the regular programme
was resumed, and a lesson on the Equation
of Payments was given by J. R. Brasclton. Tho
President’pro tern, objected to the equality of
the equation, and his ruling was sustained by
an appeal to his or/n experience, which'showed
that l)r. was greater than Cr.
The President’s excuse for absence was
submitted, and a discussion sprang upon tho
motion to sustain. The motion would have
prevailed had not an outsider reported that
lie had just left the President at Harmony
Grove; wand then a motion for judgment by
default, was offered as a substitute. Tho
matter was finally disposed of by reference
to a committee to investigate and report at
its own convenience.
A motion was offered to adjourn to tho
quarterly meeting in April, at Maysville, with
the same programme, and under the auspices
of the same Committee of Arrangements.
Tho Chair ruled the motion out of order, in
asmuch as the proceedings of the previous
meeting had not been published, and the said
Committee did not know itself, and that
knowledge of self-cxister.ee was necessary to
action ; and further, that this body, constitu
ted as it was, was limited in its action to
simple adjournment. A most excited dis
cussion followed, and the Chairman left the
chair without an occupant, to take the floor.
Then came a dead lock, and an appeal for a
decision was made to tiie gallery'; but a close
observer remarked that there were no gals
present—that they had looked in and gone
off. A substitute wa3 offered to adjourn sign
he die. Objection was made that that was
not good English, and inasmuch as this was
a literary institution, we should have it ia
Latin, and that we adjourn now ; postmortem .
The dead-lock continued, and the excitement
was growing fearful, when ’.Squire Wilson
arose and authoritatively commanded Peace,
and announced that this meeting and program
