parting with Jay—I call him Jiiy

"There's no pleasing some people,”
said tbo bippodromor.
“I should say net. Now, f rinstanee,

tbo bonsc—leastwise, she was nowhere
to be found; and ns Jay Gonld seemed
sorter bulgy-like, and kept congbing
np hairpins and false teeth for a day
or two, we kinder snapicioned the
whole thing ”
“Maternal annt?" inquired tbe
"Exactly. My wife took on dread

"Well, sbo kindor got reconciled af

"Pacified her, eb ?"
"Too, I uiunagod to amngo a re

"Wbat knppcucd then ?
"Woll, ono day I sont JobuDy, our

desecrate onr offspring’s tomb iu that
way. So I jnst bad tlio burial service

does that strike you?"
“After that time you kept tho uni

“ Well, no. Tho fact is, I sit ont

one day last week I actually missed

somehow of a sadden I sorter inten-

A Valuable OntNrr Plaut.

Dr. Lucias Maddox, of Clinch coun-
ty, is in tbe city, having jnst rctnrnod
from Cincinnati, where lie has been
to dispose of a century plant. The
plant has lieon n|Kin tlio doctor's
plantation, to his personal knowledge,
forty years. .Seeing that it was about
to bloom, he advertised it, and re-
volition assembled in this city on the
•11U instant, to consider the best way
to rcliove onr iitato of tho evils con
nected with tho use and abuse of in
toxicating liquors. Tho convention
was composed of representative njen
from all parts of tlio State. Iu their
opinions they were conservative, in
their plaus th v wero practical, and in
thoir purposes they were firm and de
termined. The body iu its delibera
tions was singularly free from unrea
sonable enthusiasm aud nubridlod fa
naticism. Tbo body, ufter a calm,
thoughtful aud harmonious session,
agrcod to go, through its committee,
before tho General Assombly, with n
bill embodying tho features of a local
option law, with the position of par
ties thereto reversed. It is needless
in this address to rohearso the minor
details of tho bill; they are snch os
seem best calculated to secure the en
forcement of the law and the suppres
sion of tlio evils of intemperance. We
now call upon tho citizena of the State
to oxpress their approval of tlio meas
ure nnd to ondorso the action of tbe
convention. This tlioy can do by res
olutions adopted by neighborhoods,
districts, cities and villages, nssurn-
bloil in thoir court houses or ucado-
mios or other places of mooting, or by
petitions circulated to which their
names may bo signed, aud tliuii give
publicity to their action throngli com
muuientions addressed-to the secreta
ry of this commitSoe at Atlanta, and
to thu pnpers published iu their re-
puctivc counties. Fallow citizens,
vc are near to the victory! Tbo evil
iu all its magnitude has been appre
bended by the won and women of our
Statu, thu danger of delay is fully ap
preciated, and tho importance of calm,
determined action ia rocognizoil. Tho
judiciary of the Stato is right on tbe
queation; tho presa of Goorgia favors
repressive aud restrictive tnoasnres;
thu minietry of our clturcboe aro sup
porting thu reformation; the solicit
ous parents are anxiously watching
for a remedy; tlio uufortnuato victims
of tho ivino cup aro appealing for
help; thu good citizens of ovury race
and color, of all creeds nnd partios, of
all ranks aud stations iu socioly, are
oxpocting relief, and the noble womon
of our graud old commonwealth, with
entreaty crystnllizod in toars and am
balmod ill prayoni, are appealing (o’
tlio Genera! Assembly to stay tlio tiilo
