post from the house and coming out
at the foot of the hill beyond the
house towards the two mile post. This
will not only shorten the distance, but
will avoid a hill that is often impassa

take a turn out on petitioner’s land.
The change will be made without cost
to the county.

A Good Example.
Morgan county, Georgia, has chal
lenged the neighboring counties of
Jasper, Putman,Oconee, Newton, Wal
ton, Green and Hancock to compete
with her for a prize ol $500 for the
best home-raised colt, at the live stock
show to be held at Madison Aug, 31,
and it is probable that the challenge
will be accepted by all the counties
named. This action on the part ol
the farmers of Morgan is to be com
mended. It will create renewed inter
est among the people of that section
in live stock matters and a general
rivalry in the raising of colts, partic
ularly, and probably will result in the
raising of better and more horses—an
occupation that should be engaged in
much more extensively in Georgia than
it is. No doubt some fine colts will
be entered for the $500 prize, because
in most of the counties considerable
attention is paid to the raising of live
stock. An agricultural fair is held in
Putman each year, at which the exhibit
of horses, mules and colts is one of the
best features, and in each of the coun
ties of Morgan, Green and- Hancock
an annual live stock show is held.
Newlon used to hold such fairs, but
has not done so lor several years, and
Oconee generally makes exhibits of
live stock at the Northeast Georgia
Fair in Athens.
The farmers in those counties in
which special attention is given to live
stock and to other things besides cot
ton, corn and grain arc the most pros
perous ones in the state. Some of
them not only raise horses and mules
lor their own use, but they have them
for sale. Olliers make money in the
dairy business, and still others supply
the tables ol town people with various
articles of iood. It the cotton crop is
-a-failure,they have something to fall
back upon. They save expenses by
raising what other farmers buy. Their
example should be followed generally
by the Georgra farmers. Such a course
would keep in the stale thousands of
dollars that annually go out of it.—Ex.

The young men of Thomasville, the

should be foremost iu the work of
pushing the new railroad. Their
future, their all, is at stake.
The Race Question.
The Memphis Avalanche takes the
Times-Union, Jacksonville, to task for
asserting that “there is no race prob
lem.” The T. U. thus comes back at
its Tennessee critic:
The white majority in Florida is 50,-
000; the voting majority about 10,000,
Wc see nothing that needs a “solu
tion.’’ The Alabama, Tennessee,
South Carolina, Georgia and Missis
sippi elections last November revealed
no serious race antagonisms. In
Louisiana and Arkansas local disturb
ances have since occurred, but not so
many as marked the bloody years of
Knownothingism. No two nationalities
(to say nothing of two distinct races)
have ever gotten along so well together
and with fewer collisions.-
The republican president, Mr. 1 lar-
rison, recently declared to a southern
delegation that he would not himself
tolerate a negro mayor for Indian
apolis, a negro postmaster, nor practice
before a negro judge, and that what
he would not accept for himself lie
would not visit upon the south.
When*, then, is the bugbear with 50,-
000,000 ol white people, of all parties
and sections, a unit for the integrity of
the race, against 7,ooo,pqo of a race
which the'Avalanche denominates too
trfliing to work and too stupid to be
taught? Immigration south is all white.
