Brown, of the Chattanooga, Rome &

The above is the title of a very
readable nnd interesting volume, laid
on our table by Miss Addic McClellan,
with the compliments of the author.
It treats of the use and abuse of to
bacco in a very fair manner, and its
perusal would be of incalculable value
to any one addicted, or inclined to be,
to the use of tobacco, if they would
give heed to the facts contained
therein. Call at Miss Addic McClel
lan's and get a copy and read it, or
give it to your boy.
Clean up—We Mean the City.
The continued rains have created
several “disturbing elements” that
stand in wait to offend the olfactory
senses, and through them the health
of those that arc abroad after night
fall. There arc scvcial low places on
Broad street that ought to be filled,
and some of the cellars in town arc
not ns fragrant as they might he.
Extra diligence at this season will be
a good policy. ' Clean up.

“You remember that two years ago
you called attention to__the fact that

“Yes; to Quincy, Florida,”
“Will you build direct fom Carroll
