The groat cotton mills of New Eng
land will finally come nearer the cot
ton fields of the South.
The Northern press is severe on the
result of the McDow trial in Charles

seven negroes were on the jury.
JudgcN. C. Barnet! is eighty-eight
years old. He lias held the position

fifteen years in that time.
The great American Eagle will flap
his wings, give a scream which would

To'work out the great industrial
problems which now confront us; to
preserve law and order, and to main
tain those great principles which arc
the bulwarks of liberty, should be the
high aim and object of Southern states
men. To this work let them bend
their energy and devote their talents.
Let the education of the masses
claim equal attention from the legisla
ture, with the efforts being made to
enlarge and raise the standard of
higher education. Georgia owes, at
least, a gold common English educa
tion to every one of her children.
And then she should he liberal in pro
viding for those who may fit them

The prospect for good crops through
out South Georgia, was never belter.
The harvest promises well. The toil
ers have bright promiso of fair comp
ensation for the labor of ’89. And no
class of men more richly merit and
deserve generous returns for the heads
of sweat which have stood on their
honest sun burned brows, during
these long summer days.
The Cabinet Discusses the Flan
At the cabinet meeting to-day,
when the thermometer registered 89°,
the grave subject said to have been
under discussion was whether or not
cabinet officers, might wear flannel
shirts. Secretary Rusk proposed the
subject, just after Mr. Blaine had
told a funny Btory. It had been on
his mind for some time, and he
became eloquent es he enlarged upon
the comforts and beauty of that style
of dress. He said that these shirts
were the srlvation of farmers in the
harvest field and at the threshing
machine, and that he had never been
so happy in his life as when he wore
one—a heavy homespun, none of
your new-fangled, lmlf-silk gauze.
Mr. Blaine, it is understood, rather
approved of the idea, hut he thought
the soft silk or crape was better than
the flannel. It was too serious a ques-
however, to decide at one meeting,
whether the cabinet miglii he perfect
ly comforable if they chose. But
Uncle Jerc’s description of the com
fort o the shirt shook the ioundation
of the cabinet dignity until it totter-
\ ed. But for the cool appearance of
Mr. Prfictflr and the dignity of Ben
Harrison, it is believed that lie would
have secured cabinet sanction of the
A Rainfall of 29 1-2 Inches in 33 Hours
San Francisco, July 1.—The
steamer City of Rio dr Janeiro arrived
from Hong Kong and Yokahomo to
day. One of the most destructive rain
storms in the history of Hong Kong,
occurred May 29 and 80. The total
rain fill for thirty-three hours was 291,
inches. Atone time the tall measured
neatly three inches per hour. Hong
Kong papers do not venture to esti
mate the loss to private property, such
as residences, stores, etc., hut place
the loss to public property at 8200,-
000. Nearly every house within an
area of thirty square miles suffered.
All the roads and streets were turned
into mud heaps, and innumerable shops
and dwellings .were flooded.
VIVID FLASHES OF LIGHTNING.
Most every minute during the storm
vivid flashes of lightning lighted up
the streets, which seemed more to re
semble the bed of a river than roads
in the center of the town. The water
pipes burst at every corner, the roads
were cut up almost beyond recogni
tion, and level roads were piled with
earth and loosened stones and debris
from the upper streets so as to he im
passable. Fftcon lives were known to
have been lost when the steamer
Self-Preservation is the First Law
Great combines are being made by
overgrown capital to control the rail
roads of the country. Every one rec
ognizes the fact that these big combi
nations do not mean good to the
people. Compctiton in railroads are
essential to reasonable rates. Most of
the roads in Georgia have combined,
pledging themselves to prevent rival
lines from invading their territory. I)o
these combined roads auogate to
themselves the right and power to
exclude and shut out competition? Do
they claim the caitW If Thomasville
secures an independent road, she can
make fair terms with the big combines.
Thomasville has no war to make on
any road, or system of roads,but she is
deeply, vitally interested in protecting
.herself. And she's going to do it.
Natural Gas Struck.
Birmingham, Ala., July 1.—Nat
ural gas was struck to-day near Cor
dova, Walker county, about thirty
miles west of this city. It has a pres
sure of sixty-five pounds to the square
inch, and was struck at a depth of 700
feet. It was discovered on the prop
erty of the Cordova Coal and Coke
company, and the experts in charge
of the work say there is no doubt of
the gas existing in paying qualities.
Nicholas of Montenegro governs
his subjects in old-fashioned paternal
style. He recently caught his min
ister of public instruction stealing
some state archives, and lie had him
laid across a block in the courtyard
of tho palace and publicly whipped,
and, alter fifty strokes with a birch
rod, sent him to prison for twelve
months. Nicholas holds a court every
week, and offenders are birched in
his presence. But he is always ready
to remit a certain number of the
blows for cash.—Ex. .
If the same course was pursued at
Washington, some republican would
be stretched acroas a block and well
belabored every hour in the twenty
four. One advantage would flow
from the adoption of this custom; it
would create a new office, a court
whipper, so to speak. But then the
rascals, most of them, have stolen
enough to buy absolution.
Washington, July 2.—Tho Secre
tary of the Treasury to-day issued
warrants in payment of 816,003,000
of pensions, being the first payment
on this account for the new fiscal
Washington, July 2.—Secretary
Blaine is superstitious and so he went
north yesterday instead of waiting un
til to-day to travel with the President,
lie never forgets July 2, 1881, when
be drove down tc^ the station with
President Garfield on their way north,
only to see him shot down by Guitcau.
Some people in town feared a repeti
tion of that scene to-day, for there arc
a dozen Guiteaus in town crazed by
disappointment in office seeking, hut
nothing unusual occurred.
Washington, July 2.—The Presi
dent and party left this afternoon for
New York and Woodstock, C'onn.
At the latter place he is to attend a
Fourth of July celebration.
LvNt'HiiURti, Va., July 2—A fear
ful accident, by which many lives
were lost and a large number of peo
ple injured, occurred on the Norfolk
and Western railroad at 2:80 o’clock
this morning one mile above Thaxtou
switch and tliirly-onc miles above this
ft is impossible to -tale the number
of persons killed, hut the most relia
ble estimates place the number at be
tween twenty-five and thirty. The
number of wounded will lie far in ex
cess of the number killed. Thirty of
the wounded have been taken to Ron
noake, thirteen toBufordville, anil fif
ty to Liberty.
Chicago, July 2.—A dispatch
from Wavcrly, O., says:. “An un
known man was taken suddenly sick

Cordova, Ala., July 2.—Natural
gas has been struck here. It has been
flowing for hours, with an estimate
pressure of sixty to seventy pounds
to the square inch.

ton, ex-minister to Austria, was here
to-day on his way home, and called

London, July 2.—Tho world’s
Sunday school convention opened its
sessions in London to-day. There
were 900 foreign delegates present,
including over 300 from the United
States. Lord Kinnard delivered the
address of welcome, and Count Rom-
storlf of Berlin and Rev. Mr. Cuylcr,
ofBrooklyn, responded, in behalf of
the delegates from European and
London, July 2.—The Rome- cor
respondent of the Chronicle says: “In
receiving the Spanish ambassador the
pope alluded to his possible departure
from Rome. It is certain that ar
rangements for his refuge in Spain
have been completed.”
1'iTfiilr Pieces of Bone.
My little niece, left me by her moth
er, had one of the worst cases of white
swelling I ever saw. More than twenty
pieces of bone came out of her leg,one
piece being .about the size of the small
end of a walking cane, and nearly three
inches long. The hole left by taking
these pieces out was as large as a good
sized walnut. She was not able to walk
a step for eight months, and was after
wards compelled to use crutches for
nearly a year. The doctors said there
was no cure, and advised amputation
of the limb. This I would not consent
to.but put her to taking Swift’s Specific
leaving off all other treatment. It has
cured her sound and well, and I shall
never grow weary ot speaking its praise.

“We induced a neighbor to try B. B. B. for
catarrh, which be thought incurable, as it
had resisted all treatment. It delighted him,
and continuing its use, lie was cured sound

It. M. Lawson, East Point, Ga., writes:
“My wife had scrofola 15 years. She kept
growing worse. She lost her hair and her
skin broke out fearfully. Debility, emacia

failed, I tried B. B. B., and her recovery waa

Oliver Secor, Baltimore, Md., writes: “I

B. B. B. has proven to be the only medicine
that gave me relief.”
