A “woman’s exchange” lias been

The State undertakers will hold

done to lighten the pall of such a con

It cropped out at the road congress,
if the sentiment of that body is a fair
reflex of public sentiment, that the
people arc in favor of working the
public roads of the state with the peu
itentinry convicts. And it is lair to
presume that the delegates expressed
the views of their constituents. There
are difficulties in the way, but these
may be overcome.
Hon. Fleming G. DuBignon, presi

reporter in Nashville a few days ago
that the overwhelming sentiment :n

Grover Cleveland is undoubtedly

There is no reason why farming,
properly conducted should not pay.
‘ Don’t buy on credit; do your farming
at home instead ot in town, and plant
what you'need to live on, and any
industrious fa rifle r who knows how to

The above from a practical farmer
in Richmond county should commend
itself to every farmer in the state.
The greatest gathering of Sunday
school men ever had will be seen in
London in July. The World’s Sunday
school convention will assemble in that
city July a. Very low rates have been
secured for persons in the United
States who wish to attend. The trip
from New York to London and return,
including railroad fare, board at a good
hotel during the convention and inci
dentals will cost only from $160 to
$S20, according to accommodations.
The trip will occupy about a month.

excursion, will sail June 19.
Watering Places, Pamphlets and
Did you ever pick up and study n
-educlivc pamphlet issued by some
iroprietor of a watering place? They
usually appear about this season ot
he yeai. They are a study. The
pictures and print are designed to fas-
cinnte and inveigle. A glance at one
ind you seem to be transported from
the blistering heats of the semi-tropics,
'o the cool shades of some sequestered
nook, where the mercury is a stranger
above fifty. One of those “etticiu”
pamphlets lies before us, as we write
with the thermometer in the neighbor
hood of 90. Let us turn its leaves
and see what it contains. The first
thing which strikes us is the cut of
tbe main building, with a long piazza.
Promenading on the piazza we see a
thin legged young man nnd a young
woman with a regulation bustle. They
are evidently engaged or will ho before
the season is over. Mountains arc
seen in the back gnund, while the
grateful shade of spreading trees throw
their noonday shadows athwart the
pathway of the couple coming from
the "wonderful mineral spring.” The
young man is carrying a pitcher of
this all curing water to a gouty, rich
old uncle who is coufined to his room.
The young man would not he carrying
this pitcherof water to his uncle were lie
not gouty and—rich. And the young
lady would not be so sweet on the
young man were it not for the rich
uncle mentioned. But the young
man seems to wear a far off look in
his left eye, which might be interpreted
to signify that he is, even then, think
ing of some other girl. However, the
girl mav land him in the end. There’s
A ha}c, hearty, robust man is seen
climbing a precipitous ridge. He
could scarcely walk (so the landlord
will tell you) when he first arrived.
It is geneially supposed that the man
is being boarded free as an advertise
ment. A cow is seen grazing, in a
small cnclosuic, without a vestige of
grass. She does not look like a Jersey,
though the pamplct says “guests are
supplied with the purest Jersey milly
from the proprietors own dairy.” This
may he so, or it may not be so. • Ap
pearances are very deceptive, you
You cannot see the pure air,
though it is said to be the purest in
the universe, and the most of it to the
A croquet gr >und, with two dudes
aud two lad'es engaged in a game of
—flirtation, is seen. The ladies show
alarming systoms of well developed
cases of the Grecian Bend. They
evidently have it bad. The dudps
may, possibly, dcvclon into respect*
able members of society—but this is
doubtful. The chances are not favor
able for this consummation. This is
the fifth season out, of one of the young
ladies. She is growing desparate and
may marry the cheapest dude. A
cynical bachelor is swinging in a
hammock watching the game. A
match making mother is seen on a
rustic seat watching young Fitznoodle,
who is rending Byron to her daughter
in a latticed summer house.
There arc other pictures of groupes
and parties, outlined in-the dim per
spective. It is difficult to determine
tlic sex, thougli it is likely that there
are males and females included ; this
is generally the case at watering
On another page is found the analysis
of the water. It is said to cure all
th-. ills which human flesh is heir to.
The fare is said to be excellent,
embracing everything to be had in
the market. (There is not a market
within thirty-two miles of the place.)
The waiters arc represented to be both
polite and attentive—murk you, are
“represented to be.” A “tip” will
bring one of them back from the
aromatic recesses of the kitchen—
which adjoins the “spacious” dining
room—in something lees than one
hour aud seventeen miuutcs.
Such are some of the feauturcs in
the pamphlet before us.
Tne proprietor may have a keg of
nails in the bottom of the spring. Bit
it is out of sight. Anyhow you can
taste the iron in the water. And
iron is just what you need to build
the system up. Pack your grip, go
to a watering place, wander around
in the woods, gathcr’a crop of red
bugs, and you may be happy yet. The
festive red bug lietli in his native lair,
and awaiteth for his victim. He is
no respecter of persons, age, sex or
previous condition. He gets there,
all the same. And his staying quali
ties are beyond dispute. ^

Gen. FitzLec delivered au address
a day or two since at the unveiling of
a monument to the Confederate dead
of Alexandria, Va.,‘ Atuoug other
tilings, lie said:
The ceremonies by northern organ
izations, in honor of devotion to the
union of states by federal’soldiers, are
right and proper, and celebrations in
ihe south, by southern soldiers in
honor of the memory of those who
died in defense of their states, their
homes and their people, should be
equally recognized as a merited trib

and duties that now devolve upon the
states, and individuals with equal

Irish patriot: “Do you ask me, my

It will bo remembered that a short
time ago Col. Jeff Lauc, general man
ager of the Georgia Southern and.

for awarding the prize is July 1, and

President Harrison’s benevolence
seems to be ns boundless as the patri.
otism of the famous humorist who an
nounced liiH williugness to scud all
his wife’s male relatives t > the war.
The President's family designs arc of
a kindly character and they have al
ready extended to three beneficiaries.
Brother Carter Harrison has been
made marshal of the Middle Tennes
see district, and Scott, who has the
honor to he the brother of Mrs. Harri
son, has been ensconced in the soft
berth of superintendent of the In-
dinuapolis public buildings, nnd Inst,
but not least, the Saunders family
comes in for its share of official honors
nnd lucre. The father-in law of Mr.
Russell Harrison, a venerable old gen
tleman, who, since lie failed of re-elec
tion to the United States Senate, has
been out of a job, hail to he provided
for, and accordingly jUr. Saunders is
named as a member of the Utah com
mission. The most important work of
a Utah commissioner is to draw
85,000 a year out of the United
States treasury. The president lias
done fairly well for his kinsfolks for
the first two months of his udmiuistra-
tiou. He lias many mouths to reign
yet, and his family connections’ name
British Fort on our Border.

The easy indifference which marks
the attitude ot the United States tow
ards all other countries is well illustra
ted by the apparent lack of interest in
Washington in the building up o! a
great British fort on Vancouver's Isl

ington Territory, said in this city the
other day: “A very small proportion
of the people of this country are aware
that the strongest fort on the American
continent is now building on the Pacific
coast. When completed it will rank
next 10 Gibraltar among the world’s
fortifications. It commands the en
trance at Puget sound, the second
port of entry on the Pacific coast, and
ope of the most important in the Unit
ed States. The British will soon he

No other nation in the world would
permit the building of the gr<*at fort
to intimidate a peaceful neighbor.
U ncle Sam could lay out Johnny
Bull with one hand tied behind

line and take that tort in case of war;
that’s what we’d do.
A Good Suggestion.
It is settled that the beautiful arch
near Washington Park, New York un
der which the procession passed at the
recent centennial celebration, is to be
preserved in some permanent form 'as
a memorial of an era in our history.
The Charleston News amd Courier
makes a good suggestion in reference
to the construction of this memorial
arch. Instead of building it of marble;
as has been intended, the proposal bv
the News and Courier is to invite each
of ihe original thirteen stales to con
tribute flier native stone for the work.
Our contemporary s&vs: “These stones,
fitly joined together, would symbolize
the union as it was and as it is, and thus
the arch would be made ' a national
monument to perpetuate the national
glory.” Every one of the original
states is rich in deposits of stone and
several otfthem have many varieties
ot marble and granite. For a memo
rial representing the beginning ot a
new century of national life, and de
signed 10 stand a long time, granite
is decidedly preferable to marble by
reason of its slower decay. We have
no doubt but that Georgia would en
gage in such an appropriate work as
the construction of this patriotic arch.
All the states, which established this
government ought to be represented
in this memorial — Telegraph.
