One of Uncle Sam’s war tubs went ashore, near Norfolk, the other day. # What has become of the Oklahoma craze? It appears to have petered out. It is well. The Georgia military are having a big time on St. Simon’s island. They are the pride of the state. The farmer who makes his own bread and meat is as independent as a wood-sawyer. The world is growing better. And we say this knowing that Forakcr and Chandler are still allowed to stay in it. The Georgia “watermillion” is get ting there. And the night bell of drug stores are ringing in many northern yillages. While the California boom has par tially collapsed—or, at best, at a stand still, South Georgia and Florida are at the front, as of yore. The Alliance men have hit the jute .trust a slinging blow, by determining to use cotton bagging. Hit ’em again, and hit ’em hard. What has become of Wiggins and Hicks? It is about time they were predicting warm and sultry weather in August. Come to time, gentlemen. Ingalls is laying in a fresh stock ol venom. He will eject it when the senate meets. The south can now afford to smile at the contortions of Ingalls, Chandler and their sort. It is a safe plan to carry an umbrella (of your own, remember) when starting out. You can’t tell whether you will need it to keep off the sun, or to pro tect you from the rain. The republican boodlers continue to coarsely howl for plunder. And they’ll get it. In the language of the Texan, “What are we here for, if not for the boodle,” they may properly exclaim. General Pierce Young will deliver an address at the re union of the ex- Confederates in Bainbridgc, on the 4th of July. General Young was a gallant soldier, and is an eloquent speaker. He will warm the boys up. The old Confederate veterans are going to have a grand re-union at Bainbridge on the 4th of July. Lieu tenant Ben Russell says they will have a private on exhibition. This will draw a crowd, without doubt. We hope Thomasville and Thomas county will send over some of the boys who wore the grey. There ought to he some way of re lieving the legislature of the over whelming amount of petty, insignifi I? cant focal legislation which, under our present laws, is entailed on that body. This kind of legislation consumes • much valuable time—time which our law-makers ought to give to more weighty matters. Georgia newspapers arc guessing already at the length of the summer session of the legislature. We venture one prediction: It would be shorter if members were not provided with free passes. A number of states, rec ognizing this evil, have passed strin gent laws forbidding legislators from accepting free passes. Wild Western Journalism. A copy of the Okolahomn Gazette is before us. It is quite an interest ing sheet. We make room for a few short extracts: Wanted—Some man with grease to start a soap fnetoiy. We’ve got the lie. In the beginningGod made Guthrie from the dust of the earth and it has dried out some since. The melancholy days have come. The hottest til' the year; We cling to thinnest lemonade. With mercury !><> in the shade. Hut pine for Iiigor beer. Mr. J. M. Creamer, who formerly lived in Valdosta, we understand, appears at the head of the local page, as “Circulator.” Just what that is we are not prepared to say. It is probable, however, that he just circu lates around in the new town, with a pair of six shooters strapped on, and a bowie knife in his hoot log. Thus equipped but few new-comers would hesitate long about subscribing to the Gazette. A “tender foot” would pay for two years in advance. There is an interesting resume of the business houses m the new town. There are 21 drug stores and 7 ice cream saloons. Two undertakers have littng out their shingles. That they will do a good business we infer front the fact that 53 physicians have already located there. The disproportion between the number of undertakers and physicians is apparent. Fifty-three doctors will crowd two undertakers. The Old Homestead. That young man is wise who slicks to the farm,'who enriches and tills the broad acres, and ignores the fascina tions, allurements and seductive influ ences of town life. In and around the old homestead is the safest place. There but few of the temptations of life are encountered. Character is moulded there, correct modes ofliving fixed, moulded and fixed on a higher plane than is possible in the towns, where, to a greater or lesser extent, young men are subjected to tempta tions which, too frequently, lead them astray. Many a bright country boy has wrecked his health, happiness and future by tiring of the old home and going to town. Many a hoy, bankrupt in health, fortune and reputation, lias dragged himself hack to the old home, where a loving mother—who followed him with her prayers -took him again to her arms, loving the prodigal with a love that passeth all understanding. Moral: Stick to the old homestead, until you get a home of your own, and then stick to that. This advice is old, but it’s good. It is sometimes said that it is the northern capitalists and the skilled workmen of the north who arc build ing up the south, but while this is true in a measure.it is not a fair statement. The Manufacturer’s Record says: "It is the young men of the south,that is,those ranging trom youth to 40 or 50 years of age, who are making the south to day. They ask no favors. They are filled with an enthusiasm that cannot be dampened. They are hold, earnest energetic, and above all, they have a faith in the south’s future that cannot he weakened. Editor Sheppard of the Mail and Express, N. Y., secs blood on the moon. Every mention of a reunion of ex-confederatcs throws hint into a spasm. lie has, thus far, unfortu nately, outlived these attacks. Maybe one of them will carry him off yet. We can only wait and hope. The cause of education will receive more attention from the law makers of Georgia at the coming scssiou of the legislature, than ever before from that body. Don’t forget the three R’s, gentlemen. Thoroughly taught, they arc the basis, ground work and foundation of a good education. A good system of common schools is of the highest importance. Then if there is anything in a boy he will climb to the top. There is a sick juror in the Wool- folk case. It would he hard on Bibb, if this juror should break down before the and of the trial, thus making another mistrial. The money realized for the melon crop will come in most opportunely. This will be followed a little later by the revenues from the pear crop. South Georgia is learning the all im portant lesson of diversifying her crops. Harrison found two more relatives last week. Of course they wero promptly given a roosting place. The fate of Tom Woolfolk will soon he known. His case, however, will go to the Supreme court, and then it will ho seen whethci that court will sustain the verdict of the court below. The general impression' is that it will, and that the present will he the last trial accorded the defendant Seventeen members of the legisla ture are preparin': amendments to the Code. That muchly mutilated in strument is already disfigurtd beyond recognition. Though thus disfigured, it, is still in tiie ring. Mr. William Walter 1’liclps, of New Jersey, who has been on the Samoan commission, lately in session at Berlin, is returning home. He is bringing his hangs with him. Col. Rutherford, it is said, would conclude his argument in the Wool- folk ease by noon yesterday. He spoke all day on Friday. Col. Guerry, who closes for the state, will not be able to conclude before Monday. The Mother Hubbard is much in vogue nowadays. J udging from cas ual glimpses of this popular summer garment, they must be very comfort able, hut. woman’s “divine form” docs not show of! tit much advantage when encased in one of these flowing robes. Governor Gordon has’Joeetipied the suite of rooms in the new capitol set apart for the chief executive of the state. They arc said to be very hand some. Albany is hanking heavily on the virtues of her artesian water. Borne of the young men of Boston are going to play “Ten Nights.in a Bar-room.” The young men of a good many other towns play more than ten nights in a barroom. The Quitman Free Press is already discussing the. next representative from Brooks. Capt. John G. McCall is said to be the coming man. To early, neighbor, to discuss the ques tion. It is a long time until the next election in Georgia. Stanley is going to build a railroad two hundred and fifty miles long in Africa. A European syndicate will hack him. The dark continent will soon he illumined by the flash of nu engine’s headlight. The natives will probably take to the jungles. He Will Buy a Ticket. It isgencrally understood that Blaine occupies rather an unenviable position in the cabinet. When asked why he submitted to being snubbed, he told the following story, to illustrate his position: He likened himself to a man who had received from an author a ticket to sec the first performance of a play. The audience grumbled at the first act, hissed at the second, and at the end of the third act proposed to mob the act ors. The man with the free ticket was quiet. His next neighbor was amazed and at the close of the third act asked: “Look here, my friend, you don’t say anything; do you like thfs play?” The man did not, but he was deter mined to he courteous. “Fact is,” said he, "I am here by invitation, and I feel as if I ought not to he rude. But if the next act ts as bad as the last I’ll go out and buy a ticket and raise hell." l’AKE Til ill: WELL, OLD JUTE. Farewell, Jute, Faro well; Your race Is nearly run.
