ATLANTA, GA., SUNDAY, OCT. 13, 1878
THE LOCAL GAZETTEER.
Things Caught on the Fly by the Gaaette Report
ers—Bnmore, Gossip, and Guesses.
The Fair most here.
Mr. H. W. Grady has a dog that carries
notes to or from his office.
The Markham, under its new management,
is more popular than ever. It is filled with
Georgia’s best people all the time.
A negro rider at the race track at the Fair
Grounds was thrown and had his skull frac
tured. Dr. W. G. Drake was called upon.
Arrangements are being made for a mam
moth excursion from Atlanta to Macon during
the State Fair, for the purpose of seeing Dr.
Carver shoot. It will be a big sensation. A
great many persons will go.
No city ever had so severe a test as has
been given Atlanta this season on the yellow
fever question. But she has come through
without a single case. Let the cithern be
struck and the hewgag sounded!
The Piedmont Air-Line is by all odds the
most popular route to the North. Its palace
cars are crowded daily. The scenery through
“The Land of the Sky,” penetrated by the
Air-Line, is unequalled in America.
Mr. F. T. Ryan has declined to run for
Clerk of the Superior Court, and this leaves
Jim Collins and Mr. Holliday to make the
race. Collins deserves a re-election, and will
get it. The county never had a more faithful
Lewis Clarke still holds his own as the boss
hatter. A man can’t move in good society
without wearing one of Clarke’s hats.
Mr. H. I. Kimball is back from the North.
He reports that the affairs of the factory are
progressing properly. Gov. Bullock .will re
Daniel & Marsh have the best stock of la
dies’ toilet articles, colognes, etc. ever offered
in Atlanta. Two better young merchants, or
worthier young men cannot be found. Give
them a trial.

to carry things before it It is a combination
of strength and excellence that cannot be
It is estimated that 500 hats have been bet
on the I elton-Lester election. The shrewdest
betters always specify “one of Lewis Clarke’s

Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Lowry brought back
from Europe about twenty of the finest birds
they could buy across the water. There are
paroquets, linnets and various kinds. They
make a pretty show.
Mr. James Barrett, one of the leading gen
tlemen of Augusta who visited our city in
the interest of the State Democratic Com
mitte, left for home yesterday.
Some of the State’s most noticeable men
visited our city during the past week, among
whom were Gen. Toombs, Judge R. F. Lyon,
Gen. A. R. Lawton and Maj. 0. A. Bacon.
R. J. Griffin keeps the best, newest and
freshest stock of every thing to be found at a
first-class grocery store. Every one who tries

every one in the same pleasant and genial
Mr. Charles Beerman is spoken of by his
friends for the position of Councilman from
the First Ward. Mr. Beerman is a repre
sentative German, ani no one-would make a
better Councilman. We should be glad to see
There is no dentist in Atlanta who has a
fairer head than Dr. W. G. Browne. A young
man of fine education and training, he is de
voted to his profession, and does nothing but
first-class work. He has had fine practice
since he came to Atlanta, and has won uni
versal praise. He is an acquisition to our
city, and deserves patronage. Give him a
call. His rooms are handsomely finished and
he has all the best appliances-
The Atlanta City Laundry is an institution
that our people should sustain. It will do
away with careless washerwomen, with the
loss of clothes, with delay in returning them,
and with the habit the negroes have of keep
ing them over and wearing them to balls, par
" ties, etc. The work done by the laundry is
so much superior to the washing we have had,
that it cannot be compared. The rates are
very little higher.
Our merchants almost unanimously report
that trade will be larger this Fall than ever
was known in Atlanta. The demand for
goods is simply unprecedented.
W. M. Scott, the great Clothier, has already
taken this season orders for over one hundred
suits, overcoats, etc. His trade has increased
very rapidly. His customers have discovered
that they save from 20 to 33 per cent, by buy
ing of him, and they have spread the news.
If Scott cannot show you where you can save
from $8 to S2O on a Fall suit of clothes, he
won’t ask you to buy. Isn’t this money worth
Lewis Clarke sold a large amount of hats
last week, being almost double what he ever
sold before in the same time. His long expe
rience, his fine taste and square dealing have
given Lewis Clarke a hold upon the hat trade
of Georgia that can’t be shaken off.
The opening of a wholesale store by Messrs.
Daniel & Marsh has proved that these ener
getic young merchants knew what they were
about. Their trade has increased very large
ly, and new customers are being constantly
added. We advise all of our friends to applj
to this house before buying elsewhere. Thev
will not be undersold.
Mr. R. S. Jeffries made a most brilliant
speech in the Superior Court, last Friday, in
a murder case. He cleared his man by a
most eloquent speech and an original theory.
Mr. Jeffries is rapidly becoming one of Geor
gia's best criminal lawyers. He has never
lost a murder case, and has had several tough
ones to try.
The passenger cars of the Piedmont Air-
Line are crowded daily. The Air-Line is the
shortest and best route to the North. It runs
through a healthy, picturesque section, and
grows more popular every day.
“ The Gilded Age,” a new Sunday paper
edited and published by Mrs. Whitson, makes
its first appearance this morning. It will b<
for sale at all the book-stores and news-stand".
It will be a bright and newsy visitor.
The beautiful manner in which the Gazette
is printed, has excited universal comment.
It will not be otherwise with two such accom
plished young pressmen as Gen. James Dick
son and James Watts in charge of the ma

How the Macon and Brunswick Railroad is Managed.
We suppose our pleople are all familiar
with the history of the Macon & Brunswick
It was thrown on the State’s hands by its
failure to pay its bonds. It was in a terrible
condition, and was of no consequence as a
thoroughfare. It had been badly managed,
and was sadly out of joint. Capt. John A.
Grant was put in charge of its affairs, with
Col. Drane in charge of its passenger and
advertising departments. These gentlemen
at once began the
WORK OF BUILDING IT UP.
They attempted to make it a trunk line,
and to induce travel over the route it repre
sented. They succeeded in organizing the
best line to Florida that there is anywhere,
and one that commands the bulk of trade.
They also commenced the work of building
up the line of the road. They issued a book
on the resources of the pine forests, that is
the best ever issued in Georgia. It has
brought hundreds of settlers to the State, and
built up several prosperous towns in the
heart of the pine barrens.
COLONEL ADAMS TAKES HOLD.
About a year ago Captain Grant resigned
his position, and Colonel George W. Adams
was appointed to his position. The selection
was a very fortunate one, and, Colonel Drane
remaining at his post, the road started on a
- new prosperity.
' The result of the year has been most satis
-1 factory. Two dividends of $20,000 each have
! been paid into the State Treasury. Several
thousand more have been spent in fitting up
: the road, buying engines, cars, etc. The road
i is now in first-class order, and doing a larger
i business than ever before.
1 It has become a confessed fact, the
I “CUMBERLAND ROUTE”
is the best, safest, pleasantest and most pictu
resque route to Florida, and we believe that
it will carry the bulk of the Northern travel
this winter. The local business of the line is
increasing very rapidly, and it has literally
been a blessing to the section through which
A VALUABLE PROPERTY.
At one time the State would have sold the
road for one-half what it cost her. The prob
abilities are now that, under the excellent
management it has had, it will pay a good
dividend on the whole amount of cost, and
become one of the most valuable properties
of the State.
In a conversation with Gov. Colquitt, he
was more than complimentary to the manage
ment of the road, and more than hopeful of
its future. The gentlemen in charge deserve
the gratitude of the people of Georgia for
their conscientious discharge of duty.
A FOOL RUSHING INTO PRINT.
The Pensacola Gzette published an open
letter of W. I). Chipley, Manager of the P.
R. R., addressed to the Secretary of the
Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Com
pany, in which he took occasion to attack
his management and indirectly my action —
and as the paper wassent to many in Atlanta,
&c., I sent to the same paper in substance
the following reply which after a time was
W. D. Chipley, Esq. :
Sir—My intercourse with railroad officers
has been somewhat extensive, and I have
never known one who misued a trust reposed
to long hold the confidence of the capitalist
controlling raidroads. When I read your
long captious open letter addressed to Wil
lard Merrell, Secretary of Northwestern Mu
tual Life Insurance Company, based upon a
private letter of his address to me, sent
to you to read, I was certain I had met one
who did not understand the high standard of
ueccsßary illti mata siucKtcisjsL in that
profession. All I need to have done, was
to say your application for a second pol
icy had been refused. Would it not have
been , fair, reasonably so? for you to have
stated that though it was refused because
of the liability of that city to epedemics
that you held one policy in said Company
which in its face gave you the right to reside
there, or elsewhere in the United States, or to
travel to and over Europe. Indeed, to have
further said I made this second application
because you had received a first cash dividend
of $11.48 based on an annual premium of
§42.60, leaving you this year only $31,12 to
pay, with almost certainty of its becoming
less, and that before you took out that policy,
after a careful examination, you pronounced
the Company one of, if not the strongest, in
America. If you made the second applica
tion for more insurance without having con
fidence in the Company, your capacity to
successfully manage even a small railroad in
terest might well be questioned. Sir, your
action clearly indicates your seeking a second
policy was based on the above returns on
your present policy, etc.
Now, you say you have lost all confidence
in the management of the Company, and
that no one South should insure in it. Why
so? Because they refused you a second pol
icy on account of the liability of the city of
Pensacola to epidemics, or the Secretary’s
want of knowledge as to the healihfulness of
that city ? Don’t you know that it has at
certain seasons been visited by epidemics ?
The editor of the Gazette, in closing lines
to your letter, says, and proceeds to draw a
comparison between the action of our Com
pany and certain New York Companies upon
it, “That they took risks then during the epi
demic of 1873.” The Secretary was not ig
norant on this question.
He had before him the accumulated statis
tics of years. His action was based on facts,
and his aim, and that of the officers of the
Northwestern, is, so to do its business as to
command universal confidence, so as to make
others do just as you have done —-ask for a
second policy. They don’t propose to take
doubtful risks. Would you recommend capi
talists to make loans on doubtful security ?
Your labored and childish effort to bolster
up the general healthfulness of Pensacola, at
the expense of the management of an insu
rance company, can but make thoughtful men
look upon the question as one of doubt. In
deed, have you not succeeded in making “ a
doubtful thing very uncertain, * and given to
those who read your letter a belief that Pen
sacola must be an unhealthy place ? As to
your pompous want of confidence in me,
or them, that is a matter of indifference. Why
should 1 value the confidence of one who
uses my private letter for a public purpose ?
And as to the Company’s officers, why, sir!
they will care no more for your opinion than
the officers of a great ship freighted down
and covered with passengers, would for your
5 ideas as to how they should manage it in
3 times of danger. When I read your letter
the thought passed through my mind as to
what such truly great railroad operators as
: Vanderbilt, Scott, Garrett, or, to come nearer
home, Gen. Mcßae, Col. Foreacre, Jno. B.
Peck, President J. E. Brown, would think of
such an effort to build up a railroad interest.
Their high positions have been reached by a
different course of action.
In conclusion, it is due to truth to say that
• ifyour letter had sprung from a man of widely
known business standing, it could but be re
garded as the strongest possible indorsement
of the safe management of the Northwestern
Mutual Life Insurance Company. It bears
testimony to the admirable care with which
it assumes risks, and rejects doubtful business.
I feel assured our policy holders will not
quarrel with us on sueh a reasonable, sound
policy, and that even you can but have in
creased confidence in the value of the policy
you hold, though a second application under
the circumstances was declined. A purely
Mutual company like it should be managed
as ours is—for the best interests of all its
policy holders. Respectfully,
Wm. H. White,
General Agent for Georgia.

DAVID H, DOUGHERTY.
It is said that “ poets are born, not made.”
When we think over the history of D. 11.
Dougherty as a dry goods merchant, we feel
inclined to say, “ Merchants are born, not
made.” From the very first day he opened
his new store, Mr. Dougherty has had a won
derful trade. He did not build it up ;it came
to him full-grown. His store has been crowded
daily since the first week of its existence, and
a customer never quits him.
His wonderful success is due to several
causes. In the first place, his clerks are all
courteous and polite gentlemen. A lady feels
that, no matter how humble she may be nor
how small her purchases, she will receive at ,
Dougherty’s kind and respectful attention.
This goes a long ways. In the next place,
Dougherty’s prices are the very lowest. Buy
ing goods for his wholesale store, he puts '
them into his retail stock at minimum figures.
He believes in quick sales and short profits,
and sells at the closest margin. His stock is
selected to suit all tastes and demands. The
wife of the mechanic and of the millionaire
shop side by side in Dougherty’s great store, '
and both find exactly what they want. Give

Geneva, Ga., Oct. 8, 1878.
Editors Gazette : Can you tell a subscriber
how much it would cost a company of say six
young men to take a six months’ trip to
Europe ? G.
It is a difficult question to answer with any
degree of certainty. We know of a party
of ladies and gentlemen, just returned from
Europe, who spent 155 days going all over
the continent. It is an admitted fact that the
of ira.v«l in Fnmpo with a party of ladies
is much heavier than with all gentlemen. The
cost of living in Paris is also one-third higher
this year than ever before. Still in footing
up the cost of this extended tour they found
it amounted to but $946.35 for each of the
tourists —about $6 per day. This party say
they traveled first-class all the time, stopped
at the best hotels, and made no special efforts
to economize, but the most strenuous efforts
to prevent being swindled. Three or four
young men, traveling together, ought to make
the same tour for about S7OO each, and with
rigid economy at a still smaller figure.

“The Flood of Tears."
The literature below, which was copied from 1
the letter files of one of our prominent maga- 1
zines, was evidently written by one of that
mighty multitude who fancy that nothing is t
easier than becoming an author, and who cry '
out favoritism! “rings!” when their pro-;:
ductions meet the fate they generally deserve. I 1
fhere is nothing vialently funny about it, but I:
it may call up a youthful reminiscence or so
in some burly pork-factor or iron-founder who
began life as a poet some twenty years ago:
Pittsburgh, Pa., May 7,1876.—. Editor
Mundane Monthly— -Dear Sir : Inclosed
please find a poem, the “ Flood of Tears, ” a
little thing of mine, dashed off in what I con
sidered one of my happiest moods. You will
perhaps notice the similarity between the title
and IVilliam Cullen Bryant’s “Flood •!'
Years,” but, upon perusal, you will find that
there the similarity ends. The fact is, entre
nous, I am no particular admirer of this mod
i ern school of poets to whom Bryant belongs,
and I am confident that you will find nothing
| to remind you of them in my “ Flood of Tears, ” ;
nor, as far as that is concerned, in anything
bearing my signature. I have also been ac- |
eused of being somewhat Swinburnean, but I
that impeachment I deny with contempt. 1
am purely and only Fuggian—simply that
and nothing more. I have no loftier ambi

Pittsburgh, May 24,1876.—Ed. Mundane
Monthly —Dear Sir: I was somewhat sur
prised to receive to-day the MS. of my “Flood
of Tears,” with your accompanying notifica
■ tion that it was “declined with thanks.” You
1 perhaps are over-crowded, apd the times, I
suppose, are rather hard on magazines at
present; and I know that editors, especially
t of your high and gentlemanly standing, are
not accustomed to haggle with their contribu
tors about the prices of their productions, but
if you thought the sum I named was more
than circumstances warranted you in paying
t just now, I assure you it would have offended
me in no way for you to have told me so.
j Bear this in mind in our future dealings, and
it will save time and correspondence. I re
turn the poem. Take it at SIOO.
i Truly, your admirer, C. G. Fuggy.

i illustrations entirely with you, as I know that
you employ none but the best artists.

The Christian Index and Southern Bap
tist. —The publishers of The Christian In
dex, Atlanta, Georgia, announce in this week’s
issue of The Index, that they have secured,
as editor-in-chief, the services of Rev. Henry
Holcombe Tucker, D.D., LL.D., late Chan
cellor of the University of Geo.gia. Dr
Tucker is one of the most eminent scholars
and writers of the age. His great scholarly
attainments are matched by his great force of
character, and all the characteristics that dis
tinguish the Christian gentleman, in the
purest sense of that term. Under his man
agement, assisted by a corps of first-class
writers and special contiibutors, this time
honored and venerable religious newspaper
takes position in the first ranks of religious
journalism. The Baptists of Georgia and
the South are to be congratulated upon the
prosperity and power of their organ, and
Christian literature throughout the South will
acquire fresh lustre. We commend The
Christian Index, not only to Baptists espe
cially, but to all Christian families, as emi
nently woithy of their support.— Atlanta

HOW RABBITS ANNOY THE AUSTRALIANS
From the London World.
A plague of rabbits is upon some portions
of the Australian colonies. Farmers shoot
trap and poison them, and legislatures have
tried in vain to rid the country of the evil.
Poison is the most convenient and expedi
tious agent yet employed, but it can be used
only in winter, when green food is scarce. A
man on horseback then takes a quantity of
oats that have been treated with strychnine
and scatters them through the fields and in
the woods. In a single night hundreds of j
rabbits have thus been destroyed. An ordina- |
FJ trap is used in summer, great numbers
being set every night, and a man is employed i
to watch them, and to reset any one when a
rabbit is caught. The animals' skins are all
removed and packed into bales for transport
to England, where they sell for two pence or
three pence per pound. Experiments, it is
said, have shown that the flesh of rabbits de
stroyed by strychnine is not injured by the
poison, and it is freely eaten in Australia by
the farmers. The supply, however, is so
great that many dead rabbits are left to lie on
the ground, where crows and wild-cats find
and make way with them in great numbers.
The London News.
i Further particulars of the murder of Me
■ hemet Ali, together with his escort, at Jakova,
tend to render still more gloomy the Albanian
situation. The whole province appears to be
given over to anarchy, and the only point on
which the people are agreed is in regard to
offering a determined opposition to subjuga
tion by any Christian power—the phrase
Christian power in this instance applying to
Austria alone. _ The belief seems to be gain
ing ground in Vienna as these facts are becom
ing known, that the occupation of Albania ij
necessary to the Austrian scheme for a mili
tary occupation of Bosnia; and there is much
to give to such belief color and force. Apart
from the material aid which will come in the
shape of men and arms across the Albanian
1 frontier into Bosnia, the immediate proximity
of an openly insurgent province will give moral
support to the Bosnians, and will render the
Austrian attempt at conquest all the harder,
and will tend to make it all the more pro
longed. Yet Austria has on hand just now,
apparently, quite enough to occupy her atten
tion ; more than enough to occupy her army,
in the field, of two hundred thousand men.
To undertake on top of the conquest of Bosnia
the conquest of Albania may be a military
necessity, but it certainly does not present,
save to a powerful eye of faith, any hint of be
coming an accomplished fact. After the dis
mal failure of Mehemet Ali's expedition,
Turkey will not be in a hurry to reduce the
rebels to obedience ; in its present paralized
condition Turkey regards insurrections as
matters of trifling importance. Altogether,
the chances favor the continuance of lawless
ness in Albania for a long while to come.
I see the fields where cattle graze,
The hills soft meshed in silver haze,
The gold-brown brook and ancient bridge,
And old, old red mill beneath the ridge,
And dim lights on the orchard side,
With moss-grown trees low branching wide;
The hamlet nestled in the glade—
A drowsy nook that loves the shape;
The dusty highway, long and brown,
Slow creeping out beyond the town
To breast the hill-side in its strength,
A silent treeless mile in length,
Far to the hanging woods on high
That with their verdure soothe the eye
With myriads dyes of dusky green
Tnat wear September’s richest sheen.
O’er old stone wall the blackberry twines,
Inlaced with wanton gadding vines,
The clematis and wild fox-grape,
The shad-bush and the feathered brake,
That soon shall glow a line of fire;
Nor darker could the elder gleam
With fruitage dipped in stygian stream.
All freaked and splashed with guiltless blood,
The sumach flares along the wood;
The mullein takes its lonely stand
Upon the hilly pasture land,
Where slow the cricket’s voice is heard
, Plaining some monitory word,
( Shrilled by a small black-coated friar
Who preaches ’neath the furze and brier.
The golden rod from myriad whorls
Its sunny oriflame unfurls,
And triumphs o’er the dusty way,
Companioned by the thistle gay,
That spreads a disk so rosy fair
To feed the pretty birds of air.
And foremost- with the twittering note.
The dainty goldfinch swells its throat.
Ihe noontide warms the quiet air
With scent of apples spiced and rare,
And quinces by the mossy well
Feel in their veins old Midas’ spell,
■While clusters on the bronzing vine
1 Breathe out an odor half divine.
From thick embroidered, bosky trees
Comes now the murmurous hum of bees.
Far off the golden stubble land
Lies in a warm and glowing band,
As if old earth, sunned through and through,
, Had ripened to a richer hue;
Clouds mottled like the ring-dove’s breast
Move softly onward toward the west,
? With rifts of deep and tender hue,
A nameless depth of gentian blue.
In perfect beauty, flashed and sweet,
Dear autumn comes with glowing feet;
Her tanned cheek wears a sunset dye,
A laughing light is in her eye.
About her shapely ankles brown
Swells out a modest russet gown—
With here and there a color dash—
A breast-knot of the mountain ash,
Her round arms globed minions bear,
And scarlet leaves have crowned her hair.
