here was a devoted Sunday school

The two following paragraphs from
the Augusta News direct attention to
a most important subject in whioh the
whole state is interested. Tho legisla
ture could do no better work than to
advance as far as it can the sinterest
of the University and the alumni owe
it as a duty to secure larger patron
age of their alma mater by the peo
ple of the state. We earnestly, hope
to know that the scientific schools es
pecially are well filled next term.
Georgia has to send off to Rhode
Island for drawings for our„factories.
This can be remedied if our people
will send their children to the engin
eering school of the State University.
The models there are the finest in the
whole south, and every department
of engineering is practically taught,
Prof. Charbcnnier is one ot the most
accomplished engineers of this or the
old country, and he is ably assisted in
this particular school.”
“What the state ueeds is practical ed
ucation. Let the lathers of the State
send their sons to the scientific schools
of the University. The departments
of engineering, chemistry ami philos
ophy at Athens are the best equipped
in the South; and students should
crowd these scientific schools The
professions are already crowded, and

are now making in practical scientific
fields. There are right now employed

the poorest mail facilities, getting the
mail once and twice a week; but
owing to the energy and efforts ot our
representative in Congress, Hon.
Emory Speer, the United States gov
ernment saw fit to enact sometime
last year, that we should have a daily
mail, for which we are .are all grate
ful to Mr Speer. But on account of
some, bad management somewhere,
our daily mail has proven a signal
failure. For instance the daily pa
pers from Atlanta reach Athens at
the very hour that the Watkinsville
mail leaves, hence we can get no At
lanta daily paper, until the following
day. The Augusta dailies get to
Athens about three hours after our
mail leaves, therefore we can get no
mail from Augusta until the next day.
This arrangement is very unsatisfac
tory to us and we would be very
much delighted if the the proper au
thorities would so change the time of
closing the mail to Watkinsville as
would enable us to get the Atlanta
daily papers twenty-iour hours earlier.
This can be done by causing the mail-
carrier to leave Athens just one half
hour later.; that is, make the hour of
12:30 o’clock the time of departure
from the Athens post-office, instead
of 12 o’clock. We think this would
correct the great inconvenience from
which we suffer. This could harm
no one, and would be a blessing to
the citizens of Watkinsville and vi
cinily. We earnestly trust the
change will be made.
There ia in progress a very inter
esting meeting at Flat Rock, a Meth
odist church, about five miles below
Watkinsville. Up to this time there
have been ten additions to the church
by experience. Much interest is man
ifested, by the congregations, in their
souls’ eternal salvation, and wc hope
the good work will go on until the
whole community will be enabled to
rejoice in the pardoning love oi a gra
cious God. The church at Flat Rock
is very much revived, and it does
ones’ heart good to see the love for
God shining forth from their every
countenance. Who can estimate the
goodness of God to man ?

they are driven in herds to the

fifteen miles and about two miles
wide, and is watered by Braestown
creek, which runs through some very
fine bottom lauds; and some of the
upland will produce five or six bar
rels of corn to the acre. About 20-

city of Gainesville every year. There
are probably 2,000 sheep in the val

Yesterday morning the road work
ers o f that section of the county as
sembled at the house of the Goss
place, about two miles from Ruckers-
ville. While the crowd was together,
Mrs. Dayld Lewis stated that Gov
ernor Harper, a negro at work on the
Goss place, had taken some fruit
which Mrs. Goss had forbidden. Gov
ernor said it was not so. David
Lewis, who was present, paid no at
tention apparently to this. One of
Lewis’ children had been thi owing
rocks at them. Governor said that
was not so. Lewis told Governor
that ‘this thing had gone far enough,
aud he did not want to hear any
thing more from Governor.’
Governor told Lewis that if he
would walk out with him they would
settle it. At this, Lewis followed
Governor, his hoe in his hand. Alter
going a short distance the negro
stooped and picked up a rock. As
he raised up Lewis struck him on the
head with the eye of the hoe! Gov
ernor fell and never spoke again.
This occurred about nine o’clock.

he could for the negro, but without
avail, although he said, after careful
