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. $1,001 15 Letting contract for buiUJiqg new jail deferred for two weeks. Chm’n.

The young men of Thomasville, the coming merchants, the men in whose keeping rests tho future of the place, 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?
