Killed tlic Deer.
Page Roark of tho hunting party camped
near Sulphur Spring last week, killed the
deer for the party. When ho fired the deer
fell, and Pago threw down i's gun, jumped
on the deer, yelling at the top of his voice,
and cut its throat. IJis neighbors have
been sitting up with him ever since. We
arc glad to lcaru he is rapidly improving
from his excitement.

Wo spent a day last week with J. B. Bird,
N. J. Laws, J. J. Martin and H.O. Burress,
surveying some lauds. Th so gentlemen
married four sisters, whose mother left them
a tract of about a hundred and fifty acres of
land, just north of Corinth church. They
went to work and divided tho laud into four
tracts, and had a land lottery ot their own.
The lines were all agreed upon, and each
man has his tract, end every one is in a
good humor. Tho case is without a paral

Selling by Wefglit.
Business is now mostly carried on by
weight and not by measure. Farmers are
rapidly falling into the practice of selling
their farm products by weight. This is
right, fair and equitable. It is strikingly so
in selling fodder. Some farmers bind their
fodder Un co time a as largo as others, and
thero is no justice iu compelling them to
soil at tho same price as tho small bundle
man. No, go to the scales, pay the snr 11
fee, and have your products weighed; then
Our Young Me it.
The young men of Gainesville are exceed
ingly polite and attentive to the young ladies
visiting our beautiful oity. They are dis -
tinguished for their attentions to our own
young ladies, and no young lady ever visits
us and fails to get the polite attention she
merits. We are satisfied that the hundreds
of ladies who visit Gainesville every season
will bear testimony to what we have said in
behalf of the yonDg men of this city.
A horso ran away with a buggy last Mon
day evening, in which were Lewis Meaders,
wife and child. Mr. Meaders was seriously
injured, and has not been able to be carried
to his home in Dahlonega. Mrs. Meaders
and child escaped with slight harts. It oc
curred at Bearden's ford,in Lumpkin county,
four miles from Dahlonega.
Miss Lula DuPre, sister of C. W. DuPre,
well known as a charming young lady in
Gainesville society, was thrown aom her
horse last Monday evening iu Atlanta while
out on a ride and seriously hurt. She rode
home, one mile, after the fall, but soon be
came unconscious and has been delirious
ever since. We sincerely 7 hope she may soon

Editoks Eagle: I believe it is not consid

has been so dry aud oppressively hot we can
scarcely avoid making mention of these
things. We have had some partial showers
in our section, wtnen is tho nppo* pwii-.n
of the county, next to Hall but not enough
to bo much advantage. It is remarked, how
ever, by our farmers, that crops look well
for so dry a season. Wheat was unusually
good, cotton exceed ugly forward, ladened
with squares aud bolls, corn promising, and
wo, in the early part of July had “green
corn on a plate.”
We are greatly blessed with schools. In
