Tbis fearful scourge made its np
pearance lust week in Memphis.
Appearing at least a month earliei
i)j in last season it of coarse caused
the greatest consternation in that
plugne-strickfln city. For several
days after the first case was reported
the people poured out of the city
by thousands. Trains on all roads
k«\ing the place were doubled and
(I rioted and still could not carry
Ihe panic-stricken population away
as fast as they desired to go. At
last accounts the excitement had
greatly abated, the people were re
gaining their senses and ceased leav
ing town. Only three cases were
certainly known of; one of these
had died. It is argued by some that
these are merely sporadic cases that
almost invariably follow an epidemic
like that of last year, and that it is
more than likely there will be but
few, if any other cases. But thi^is
by no means certain. While it may
be true that two great epidemics have
never followW each other in succes
sive years, yet wc have no means of
knowing that such a precedent will
uot be establish* d this year.
Col. M. E. Thorton, the daddy,
so to speak, of independentism in
Georgia, has issued a call for a con
vention of his party to assemble in
Atlanta on the 24th inst, to pre
pare for the great work that awaits
them in 1880. Those of that “faith
and order” in this section will please
take notice and govern themselves
accordingly. The Col. desires fn'l
representation from every county
and we hope the—the what-do-you-
call-ems of Polk will respond with a
a strong delegation. We could name
a highly representation ticket to send
down bat as it is none of onr funer
al we desist. We have a friendly
feeling for this movement, in some
respects. We think it best to have
two parties in Georgia, and, as the
old repulican party is, in our opin
ion. too dead to be galvanized into mo
tion again, we think the best thing
for those who desire to fight the dem
ocratic party to do is to organize un
der Col. Thor!on’s tri-colored ban
ner and march to—to—to the result,
whatever that may be. It is a fore
gone conclusion, we believe, that all
of ns can not or will not fight under
the democratic standard. This be
ing the case, we think a new organi
zation, with a platform elastic enough
to allow of considerable stretching
in certain directions, a prime neces
sity to Georgia politics. Two organ
ized parties with well defined lines
of demarkation would give us a good
square fight iu 1880, rud this would
be a great improvement over the ir-
regular, sharp-shooting, bushwhack
ing, guerrilla warfare that lias been
the style of late in some portions of
the State. Campaigns would then be
conducted with less acrimony and
.ill blood and we would all be in a
'better humor generally. For these
reasons we would be glad to see Col.
Thorton’s enterprise boom, in a mild
way, and shall charge nothing for
.giving it a small sized boost occasion
The Cental System.
The New York Produce Exchange
has decided to buy and sell by the
hundred weight, or cental, instead of
the diverse and inconvenient men-
cures now in use. There are many
advantages in this over the present
method, chief among which is that
^everything, whether it be eggs or
oils, provisions or petroleum, cheese
or corn, salt or stock—all are bought
and .sold by the pound. They have
issued the following preamble and
Whereas, On the 21st day of
May last the question whether this
exchange wouid adopt the centul
system in all transactions in ptojluce
dealt in by weight, was submitted to
the members of the Exchange by a
vote, and was emphatically approved;
your committee now recommend
that in accordance with that action
the different trades repieseuted on
’Change be requested to arrauge so
that all their dealings in grain,
flour, meal, provisions, lard, tallow,
butter, cheese, petroleum, naval
stores, oils, hay, salt, seed,dried fruit,
live and dressed stock, freights,
storage and all other articles of pro
duce that are or may be dealt in on
the Exchange, and insurance there
on, shall on and alter a certain fixed
<i*'e be exclusively on the basis of
weight, the unit of transactions to
be the •pound avoirdupois, and the
multiple thereof to be the cental, or
one bundled pounds avoirdupois;
and your committee respectfully
suggest October 1, 1879, as a suita
ble day for such change to take effect.
The following was adopted :
Resolved, That the Committee on
Trade be authorizi-d to correspond

do whatever else may be necessary

Should the State Sell her Railroads!
This question is suggested by read
ing the report o 1 ' Mr. J. W. Renfr >e
ihe Treasurer of Georgia, lie as-
suris us, and tnere is no doubt
about the correctness of bis estima
tes, that "if the propel ty of the
State were sold, it would ;>ay the en
tire debt of the State which amounts
to 410,344.500. The interest on tbis
debt is given at 4G84,135. While the
income lrom railroad rents, telegraph
stock dividends, and rents of public
building will am. nut to 4343,32S—
showing a difference between the in
come from this property and the in
ter- st on the debt it would pay, if
sold, of over 4340,‘ CO. This d,Ter
ence must be made up by taxes on
the property of the p -ople—a prop
erty that is groaning under burdens
that have shrunk it to a “rock bed
basis” of valuation.
In view of these facts we do not
hesitate to say tha* ilie State should
sell her property and pay her debts,
aud relieve her citizens of this great
load of taxation. And b sides this
it would make the Treasury Depart
ment of the State a much more wiel-
dy department by lopping from it
the bond, interest, and Railroad and
Telegraph Stock Bureaus, and with
these bureaus would be lopped large
items of excuse, made necessary by
keeping them up. To sell out and
pay up would be infinitely better
than issuing even four per cent,
bontls at par.—Columbus Times.

Mr. Ei.itor: Having had some
experience in bee keeping. I think
1 have learned a little about the busy
bee. I find in a certain condition
they arc not quite so busy as they
are sometimes represented to be.
But then I do not blame them for
their idleness, for I think the apia
rian is as much or more to blanc
than the bee. Of eighteen colonies,
I have one that has stor.d more sur
plus honey this spring than all the
other seventeen. Why is this? I
think I know. It is in good condi
tion ; that is, it has plenty of bees
in it. The fact is I have made haste
too fast. Had I understood the
matter fonr years ago, as I do now,
I might have had much more
honey, as well a* more beesj I have
“killed the goose that laid the gol
den egg” by trying to increase the
number of colonies. My advice to
all beginners is, “make haste slowly.’
The idea of artificial swarming is a
good one. provided you have eight or
more good strong colonies which are
gathering honey rapidly. Then yon
may take one card from each colony
till yon get enongh to filL*jonr new
one. Be sure yon fill your new hive
with full frames of healthy brood,
supplying their places in the old
hives with empty frames, and let
these cqjpty f-ames be near the cen
ter of the hive, as the bees are more
apt to fill them immediately.
I think it is a good plan not to
divide, or let them swarm naturally,
either, unless tha honey .season is
gjod. Instead of this, have yonr
queens with one wing cut off, and
when the swarm issues, let them re
turn to the hive, and eive them an
other box, or more room of some
sort. With the patent movable
comb hive one may learn a great
deal of the nature aud habits of the
honey bee, provided he can I«y aside
all bigotry and superstition. If he
knows it all (in his own estimation)
he will not be very apt to succeed.
If he is superstitious, he is apt to do
his bees as much harm as good in
carrying out lrs superstitious no
tions. I once visited a man several
days after his wife died, and I noticed
that hives were all reversal, that is,
the entrance slat was in an opposite
direction to what it had been. I
asked him why he lurned them.
Said he, “After my wife died, they
told me if I did not turn them
around my bees would do no good.”
I have heard of men talking to their
bees and telling them of their trou
bles. I gness this turning is equi
valent to the talking. It saves some
time to the man, but Cannes a good
deal of annoyance arid loss time to
the bees, So I don't know .that-there
is anything gained in the end.
Receipes for Making and Killing Towns.
Floating around monglhc mass of
good things, now a-days to be found

1. Put up no more buildings than
you can occupy yourself.
2. If you should hnve"an empty
building to rent, demand three times
3. Look sorrowful; be little, and
insnit every new comer; give the

4. Go abroad for your goods and

5. Finally, give a thorough finish
to yonr work by working against

persons living at a distance will not
know that any business is being done
in your *own," or they may want to
come and settle among you, or buy

give you trouble.
Go by this last recipe and the
town is sure to be killed.

1. From Y rona, Miss., June 20.
"Rev. R. G. Porter writes: ‘ Every
where in Mississippi where then? are
retail dram-shops, yon see drunken
men and hear of broils and fights.
Wherever there are no dram-shops,
yon rarely over see a drunken man
or hear of a fight or fuss. A drug
store held in check by law, is letter
than a saloon turned hose bylaw.
I speak from personal observation.
If we must have one of two evils,
give ns the least of the two.”
2. From Nacoochee, Ga., June 23.
J. J. Verner writes: “I never lived
in a town where the sale of whisky
was prohibited, but once lived in a
town where the bar-keeper would
occasionally rnn out for a few days.
1 noticed that the tipplers would
seek other and more profitable em
ployment than lying around tliebar-
room, drinking, swearing, etc. I
moved here a few months ago, where
there was no whisky sold for several
miles, and everybody was at work.
Now there is a liquor-shop within
half a mile of me. A certain class
of men spend their time in drink
ing. card playing, etc. Their fami
lies are neglected and some of them
suffering. I am in favor of absti
nence and prohibition, as far as we
can get tr. I want the sale of whisky
prohibited, at least, within tiiree
miles of our Nacoochee churches.
Go on with your good work.”
At present the case stands thus:
The State permits, for a considera
tion, the dning of a wrong thing,
which it does not tux but fine. But
the fine is not large enongh to in
demnify society for the expense in
curred in protecting itself against the
evils that grow out of the business.

through the Senate without any dif-
ticul y. The weakness of the present
bill was caused by haste and igno-
ranc’. It repealed tho duty on all
forms of manufactured quinine, bnt
was, according to expert testimony,
written in ignorance of the rather
important fa-t that South America
was not the only locality from which
the bark could be procured, and the
still other fact that there is a duty of
ten per cent, on the bark from East
India or west of Good Hope. There
was no tariff on South American
bark, which, by reason of the tariff
on the East India bark, was furnish
ing almost the sole supply to this
country. Great Britain receives E st
India bark free, and it is from this
source that we npicted to profit by

Whipping the Whooping Cough.

The Rome Courier seems to be

does not surprise us as he was elected
by the votes of Republicans, and he
w'onld be very ungrateful if he were
not to divide his vote between the
two partus, for he did geb some
Democratic votes, and consequently
he is what is known in latter day
politics as a fence rider, or a milk
