There seems tc- be an epidemic of
burglaries lately. They visited Mr,

nephew of Atkinson. The thief kept
the money but threw away the pants.
As the pants were placed on a chnir

parties did not enter the house, but
secured them from the outside.

she was born m Annapolis, Md., ip
1806. She was descended from two
well known southern families, her fath
er being Henry Thompson and her
mother Eleanor Johnson. Her hus
band was Charles Stuart, a descendant
of the Scottish family of that name.

A Town Which Encourages Railroads'.--
The Example of Athens.
Athens, Ga., June 29.—The rumor
is afloat, and It amountsWalmost* a
settled fact, that the Georgia railroad
will build a road from Atlanta to Knox-
villee, and then give Athens another
splendid rrilroad. The president of
the road, it is understood, heartily
endorses the idea, and it is safe to say
it will be built. It is proposed to build
the road from Athens to Jefferson,
thence to Gainesville, thence to Ball-
grown, a point on the Marietta and
North Georgia railroad, and from there
on to Knoxville. This will be a very
short direct line, and -ihc people of
Athens are in for it. They are wild
over railroads just now, and it seems
as if Athens is'to be a railroad center.
She has three roads, the Georgia, Car
olina and Northern and others
arc surely coming. The
Athens and Jefferson, the Augusta
and Chattanooga, and the division of
the Georgia arc being s:rongly talked
of, and some have been started. The
citizens meet in mass meeting on Mon
day to form a land improvement com
pany, which will look to the develop
ment of Athens real estate.

Baltimore, June 27.—The Manu
facturers Record this week, in its quar
terly report of the south’s industrial
progress, says that a comparison of the
new enterprises organized during the
last six months shows an increase of
600 over those of the ' corresponding
time last year, and that the amount of
capital and capital stock of the new
enterprises during the last six months
is $27,425,000 in excess of that of 18S8.
Green Stamps Must Go.
Hpceifieutions just issued by the
Postmaster-General for tho guidance
of bidders under the next contract
for postage stamps advertised for un
der date of June 17, 1889, provide
for bids for two series of stamps of dif
ferent sizes, one of them being the
size now in use and the other about
one-third smaller. The color of the
2-eent stamp is to he either carmine
or metallic red, tho latter being the
color in use when the change to green
was last made.
Washington, June 27.—Com
missioner Tanner said, before he left
for Iowa on Tuesday, that on his re
turn next week he would have money
enough—the appropriation for the next
fiscal year being available on Monday
—to pay pensions as he wants to do.
To use his own phrase, “We’ll pull
the throttle wide open.”
Yes, and ifTannet doesn’t wreck the
administration tram it will be a
wonder. There’s no question about
plenty of steam and an “open throttle.”

The New York Star directs ntten
tion to the fact that the wonderful
growth of the South has been attain
ed since the southern states govern
ment became democratic. To this
fact, by the way, the republican or
gans never allude. The Star says:
“The Hint manifestation of this growth
was nlmost contemporaneous with the
end of the scandalous republican
misrule in the south. It has been
pursued exclusively under democratic
administrations of the various south
ern states and municipalities. It has
found its lenders in democratic .south
erners themselves, and so far as there
is any real connection, between poli
ties and business it has been demo
cratic from the start.
