The Capital City Club’s reception to

bers of the club gave in voluntary donations
toward defraying the exiiense of the affair
the sum of $2,885, aud $1,460 was raised by
initiation fees of new members brought in
by the reception. The Governing Commit
tee is calling upon each member for a vol
untary subscription of $lO, and somi of the
members are Ix'ginning to think that this
sort of fun is rather extieusive.
Jefferson Herald : Horny hands 3eom to
be at a discount in Jefferson. This is not
on account of any great amount of wealth,
but on account or aristocratic notions or
down right laziness, we are unable to state
which. Beventeen-year-old boys may be
found here who never nit auv wood or
draw a dozen buckets of water. Their
mothers are afraid for them to handle edged
tools or the windlass while small, aud they
seem to be afraid to handle them when they
grow up. We would much prefer to hear
a lioy boast of Ins hard hands than to see
him handle a gun with gloved hands while
his parents uso the ax, shovel and hoe.

A dispute has arisen lietween Ross &
Storey and the town of Jefferson in regard
to assessing taxes on the mill property of
the atiove named firm. The pond, which
covers sixty acres of the best land in the
county, lies outside of tho incorporate limits,
while the mill and mill fixtures and twelve
or fifteen acres of land are within the incor
porate limits. Tho town insists on taxing
the whole property, while Ross & Storey
contend that the land outside is more valu
able than the property inside of the limits,
and should thus lie considered in assessing
taxes. There may be a rule of law which
settles this question, the reading of which
will settle the dispute. Unless settled by
arbitration the courts will be called upon to
Statesboro Eacjle: Avery good story is
told on n lawyer of this place. Sometime
ago he, in company with two or three
othei-s, gave a gentleman, who lives not far
from here a serenade. The rural country
man did not seem to like the way in which
his night visitors aroused him from his
calm repose, whereupon the rural country
man discharged the contents of his
gun in the midst of the sere
nades. frightening the lawyer so bad that
he jumped out of the wagon, and when the
mules, at a 2:4ogait, had run three-quarters
of a mile toward home, the lawyer iiad run
two miles. In a few minutes the other par
ties came upon him and found him quietly
smoking his-pipe. Now, dear reader, don’t
think this was Col. Shocklej".
Friday Adjutant and Inspector General
Kell issued an older appointing Dec. 28 for
an election for Lieutenant Colonel of the
Ninth Georgia battalion. Five companies
comprise the battalion—the Greene Rifies of
Groenesboro, the Madison Home Guards of
Madison, the Elbert Light Infantry of
Elbertou, the Walton Guards of Walton
county, and the Gainesville Volunteers of
Gainesville. An election was ordered and
held on Dec. 10, and Capt. W. F. Jones, of
Elbertou, was unanimously elected. But
all the members participated in the election
under the belief that tho provisions of the
code governed the election, whereas the act
of October, 1885, provided that the field
officer should be elected by the commis
sioned officers. The election was, therefore,
void. Capt. Jones will lie elected.
At Macon, Friday, there was a motion
brought in chambers of the Superior Court
in this city by the attorneys of the Cotton
States Life Insurance Company for an ex
tension of time granted in whi- h they may
furnish the bond required of them by a pre
vious order of the court The statement of
the case, in brief, Is this: A petition having
been filed by some of tho policy holders of
the company for the appointment of a re
ceiver in the Superior Court of Bibb county,
and the company opposing the petition,
was, on Nov. 26, granted an alternative.
The motion for appointment of a receiver
was heard by Judge Richard
H. Clark. Judge Clark ordered that the
defendant* be granted time until Friday to
furnish such a bond as would satisfy the
plaintiffs in the motion and properly secure
the policy holders. The time having ex
pired tho defendants yesterday moved for
an extension of this probation until after
the annual meeting of the directors and
stockholders of the company, which takes
place on Jan. 1. Judge Clark heard the
motion, which was made by Capt. Harry
Jackson, and granted the request.

A FUNNY JOKE
That Has Put a Party Behind the
From the Augusta (Get.) Chronicle.
Mr. T. H. Wannamaker, a traveling man,
representing a Charleston house, went down
to police headquarters night,
and left a description of a fellow-drummer
who, he claimed, had stolen liis satchel,
together with a description of the party.
He said that he and his fellow-traveler,
whose name was J. A. Munch, representing,
he claimed, a Louisville, Ky. ■ house, left
Warrenton to go to Norwood on business,
and when he returned to his hotel, Munch
and a satchel belonging to Wannamaker
had disappeanxl. He put in a complaint
here before the police authorities of rob
bery, for he had reason to believe that
Munch had coino to Augusta.
After some little search Munch was dis
covered by the close description that had
been given of him, and arrested on Broad
street. He was stopping at the Columbia
House, where he had, without any explain
able reason, given the name of Brecken
ridge when asked to register, which he
failed to do. The missing valise or satchel
could not be found iu the room he occupied
Wednesday night. Then a strange feature
of the ease developed—Wannamaker could
not be found or heard from. He had left
the Planters Hotel without any address or
hint as to where he was going, and dis
patches to all points failed to reveal his
whereabouts. A message had in the mean
time been sent to Munch’s house in Louis
ville, and the answer came back, “no such
firm.” Munch, who had stormed and swore
on being arrested, and then, when told the
nature of the charges against him,
laughingly pronounced it a joke,
explained the inability of tho Louis
ville telegraph office to find his firm, saying:
“We are three miles out of town.*’ Wah
namakor and Munch would hardly play
jokes on each other, as they met for the
first time in Warrenton Tuesday or Wednes
day, and men rarely ever presume to such
length oil so short an acquaintance. Should
Wannamaker fail to reveal his whereabouts
or let the authorities hear from him, Munch
can hardly be detained any length o£ time
in jail, where he now is. The case as it
stood last night was, to say the least, a pe
culiar one. Munch is a man of extreme
respectability in appearance, aud it is hard
to believe the charge against him. If it
were only a joke the relish of both gentle
men for another such venture will be spoiled
for similar experience.
In a recent issue it was stated that the
cost of the system of sewerage for Pensa
cola, as planned by George E. Waring, Jr.,
of the firm of Waring, Chapman & Farqu
har, sanitary engineers, which comprehends
the whole city, is estimated to be $5,578.10.
This amount should have been $85,578.10,
for about seventy per cent, of the city, and
this correction is made beaause the munici
pal authorities at Pensacola are being over
run with inquiries from other cities about
Pensacola’s alleged cheap system.
