GEORGIA'S SENATOR HIGHLY
For two hours Georgia’s U. S. Senator
A.lncttnder Stephens Clay (whose now
political name will in nil probnbility ho
that of M iml at the expiration of liis
term as U. S. Senator) has boon the re
cipient of ns high a compliment as it is
witnin the power for the V. President
to confer upon one of the Senators.
Olay had the honor of presiding over
the United States Statute for two. hours
on last Tuesday. He was called to the
chair by the Republican vice president
and held sway during the tariff debate.
It wan a handsome compliment for
so young and now a member ;o be asked
to preside and wo believi t lay made an
cxcelcnf impression upon the lovers or
followers of that horrid old Maid w!:o
bears the name of Republican Party,
who (throng its next highest oommand
inng Officer G. A. Hobart) was a<> proud
and well pleased with her betrothed
and handsome sweet-heart from Geor,
git; could do hothing nicer to show her
heartfelt appreciation of her successful
winning of this supposed Son of that
Grand and glorious old Sire and Hero
The hope of reward seems to have hud
a wonderful influene over the here-to
fore openly expressed Democratic and
free trade principals of our hcre-to.-fore
greatly lieloved Olay.
The Georgia senator was perfectly at
home while was in the chair of the pre
siding officer, Ids long service as the
speaker of the house of representatives
and as president of our senate standing
him in good hand in guiding the move
ments of the most rotten and the most
corrupt body of National law-masing
men that the sun ever shown upon.
But Oh! how much more this newly
and very hard working and
... istdevoted youngSouthem(old Maid)
lover will feel at home when he carries
this horrid old maid to the public alter
for the purpose of being pronounced as
having joined themselves together,
and b tli as having the very strongest
united' determination to rob the poor
and laboring classes of this country,and
more especially those of his own state
out of their l ard earned money, jnst
for the cuke of enriching themselves

SEVKSTT-I'IVC MILLION GALLONS PER
In a letter from Houghton, Michi
gan. to the Chicago Record,the writei
describes the Calumet and Heela
numb named the Michigan, which is
a truly marvelous piece of mechanism,
ltcan deliver 2,f00,000 gallons of
water every hour in the twenty four
without being crowded to its limit of
capacity, and it will do the work
with scarcely as much noise as is
made bv tho.opeartion of ail old style
sewing machine. Outside the doors
of the g.ieat building which houses it
no sound is heard from within, and,
atanding beside the monster, upon the
brink of the pit connected with the
lake from which the wates is taken,
almost the only sound is the noise of
the suction, as with every stroke
more than a thousand gallons are
Briefly, it is a triple expansion
pumping engine with acapacityof Go,
ooo,Otro gallons, standing nearly fifty
feet in liight and requiring 1,500
horse power for its o; oration. It has
been proved by actual tests that the
nominal capacity can be easily main
tained for an indefinite time without
injury or strain, and that pushed to
jts full capacity the pump could han
dle approximately 75, 000,000 gallons
in consecutive hours
Tha duty of the pump is to furnish
water for the great stamp mills of the
Calumet and Hecla Company, which

way by a stream of swiftly running
water. The pump is boused in a spe
cial building near the shore of Torch
Lake and below the mills ann it forces
a study stream of water to the upper
portion ot the mill, where innumerable
small gets play upon the great slime

mineral from worthless sand, and the

A SAD DEATH.
Thursday night at the home of he r
mother, Mrs. Vada 15. Reese, on Col
lege avenue, Miss Annabel Reese
passed away alter a brief illness.
Some time since she passed through
a long illness with typhoid fever
which left her in an infeeblcd state of
health and from this attack ef several
weeks since she never rallied.
The death of this popular young
lady has cast a gloom over many
.hearts in Athens today. On the very
theshhold of young womanhood, the
Grim Reaper with unrelenting hand
gathered in the lovely flower to he
transplanted to celestial climes.
Miss Reese was a talented and ac
complished young lady; of lovable
disposition, she easily acquired friends
and today those friends mourn her
To the grid-stricken mother and
other relatives the sympathies of hosts
of friends arc extended.
The funeral services were held at
the residence on College avenue yes
terday afternoon at five o’clock, and
were conducted by Rev. W- R. b oote.
The choir, which was composed of
Prof, and Mrs. Euler B. Smith, Miss
Moselle Lyndon, Mrs. Hampton and
Mr. E, J. Bondurant, sang “Jesus
Lover of My Soul,” and after services
.‘Home of my Soul'’ and “Abide with
Me.” Services were closed at Oconee

Richest Man in the World.
John D. Rockefeller sleeps 84 hours
every night, retiring tit 10:30 and ris
ing at 7. Every morning when he
gets up he is $17,705 richer than lie
was when he went to bed. He. sns
down to breakfast at 8 o’clock and
leaves the table at 8:30, and in that
shoit time his wealth has grown sl,-
041.50. On Sunday he goes to church
and in the two hours that he is away
from home his riches have grown s±,-
166. His nightly amusements i s
playing the violin. Every evening
when he picks up the instrument lie
is $50,000 richer than he was when he
•aid it down the previous night;
These little facts give some idea of
tire relentless growth of this man’s
Just how Mr. Rockefeller’s fortune
Jumped $2,000,000 in three months i s
eaidy explained. He owns 500,0000
shares of the Standard Oil company,
jor u triflle more than one-lialf of the
i total capitalization. The pur value of
jtbeso is $50,000,000. In February
-Si3fc the certificates were sold at s2bo
... ihis figure his holdings were worth
$130,000,000. To-day, at 300, they
are worth $150,000,000 Last Au
gust Standard Oil certificates were
sold atsß"h At this figure his hold
,ng were worth $05,000,000, or $55,-.
000,000 less than they arc today.
Jay Gould achived world wide fame
as a money-maker. When he died ho
left $72,000,000 and the world stood
aghastat thejwondnrful achievement
of tlie man —$72, 000,000 in 4o years
82, 000, c00 a year.
But here is a man whose wealth has
grown at the rate of $6,000,000 a
month, and the outside world scarcely
dreams of it; a man who earned his
first quarter of a dollar hoeing pota
toes on a Tioga comity farm, in the
upper part of New York State; a man
who who 35 years old did not have
sl,ooo to his name.
Rockefeller’s weallit is not all locked
up in tiie Standard Oil company. He
has nearly a solid $ 100, 000,000 in.
vested in many enterpises of vast mag
nitude. In real estate he'has tied up
$15,000,000; in steamship lines, $2,-
000,000; in iron mines, f> 15,000,000;
in railroad stocks and bonds, $25,000,-
000; in bank stock, $8,000,000; in nat
ural gas stock, $4,000,000; in manu
factured gas stock, 83,000,000; in Gov
eminent bonds 000,000, and in cash
about $2 000,000,
All of the figures just given are ap
proximate, as the securities are con
stantly fluctating, and the incessant
flow of investments; A total estimate
however, of $244,000,000 can be re
garded as conservative. This places
John D. Rockefellow at the head of
the mmillionaires, not only of this
country, but of the world. None of
potentates of the world has the for
tune or thejincome of Mr. Rockefeller
Queen Victoria receives $2, 000,000
a year, about one-ninth of the income
of" Rockefeller, and out of this sum
she must spend $1,700,000 to maintain j
the court She doesn't even have the
pleasure of spending it either; the J
Government performs performs that
duty. The Czar of Russia enjoys a
t rifle larger Income than Victoria, but
officers of the court attend to the
spending of it.
But r.o one dictates the disposition
of the Rockefeller income, lie can
invest it in interest hearing securities,
give it, away to Baptist churches and
colleges or build floral timepieces in
Tie gardens of his Tavrytown palace.
There is one important question
connnected with the fabulous growth
of this man’s fortune, and that, i
What will it amount to in next 2o
years, should Mr. Rockefeller he „• that

that it is required of us to sit there in
order to listen to some few songs or the

These children are punished nearly

following proposition ; e will give to
the School that lias the most popular

a lady or gentleman, a set of both S-*ats
and Desks, free of cost to the County.
Those seats and Desks will be comfort

to do much bettor studying.
Every body lias an opportunity, and
should endeavor to have the school that
they patronize fixed up better than any
other school in the county. Therefore,
you ought to go to work, and try to se
secure this very valuenble addition to
your school. And if it is your Best vir •

indeed, of both the high compliment

This is caused by cold:, just as iu the
human being, and is not diffiiult to
cure if treated promptly. Give each

and rub their throats with any irritat
