The American colon}' in Paris cel

It will be several days before the
legislature gets down to solid work.

mass meeting, to discuss the question,
was held at Chipley on the 4th
There were opinions and counter opin
ions. A man fainted during the
meeting. This broke up the pow

Georgia’s new capitol was formally
turned over to the State ou the 4th,
by the building committee. Capt.
Evan P. Howell, of the capitol com

The Persian minister has got his

The New York World makes some
very practical suggestions in relation
to the movement of the higher educa
tion ot women. It says:
“Education is a preparation for life,
and in just so far as a woman's life dif
fers Irom a man’s in its circumstances
she has different educational needs.
Education is good m the degree in
which it fits the pupil to discharge well
the duties that will probably fall to his
or her lot, and measured by that test
the training of our boys is far from
good, while that of our girls—those o
them at least who receive the ‘higher
education’—is nitibly bad.
A Pretty Big Family.
Another fourth of July has conic
and gone; and another wrinkle has
been added to "Uncle Sams” brow.
But the old gentleman appears to
carry his age quite well. Although
well advanced in the second century
of hi? existence, lie would be a tough
customer to tackle. He stands well
among tliejnations. Crowned beads
make obeisance to him. Ilis family
is numerous, and every memljer of it
is perfectly devoted .to him. It was
found necessary, a few years ago, for
him to spank some of liis southern
progeny—in order to maintain family
discipline;—but the children have
gotten over their spell of pouting, and
everything is lovely again. It was a
pretty severe ease of discipline, how
ever. If the old gentlman will see
to it that the Northern wing of the
family shinnies on their own side in
the future, there will be no more
“Miss Columbia’’ and “Uncle Sam.’’
Miss “Columbia,” fresh and smiling,
as she was at sweet sixteen, entered on
the one hundred and fourteenth year
of her age, day bclore yesterday. There
are no wrinkles on her fair brow, and
her form is plump and full, while her
eye shines as bright as it did half a
century ago. In lacl Miss Columbia
is a well preserved old maid. She
may be a little coy, now and then, but
never coquettish. The latter would
make her ridiculous, and Miss Colum
bia is never ridiculous. She might
tolerate, but she would never encour
age a flirtation. A kind of platonic
affection exists between her and “Un
cle Sam.” The old genlleman,though
now well advanced in years, is quite
spry, and his devotion to Miss Colum
bia is quite marked on occasions
Your Uncle Sam is [arming on quite
an extensive scale, but his agricultural
pursuits do not unfit him for the per
formance of those gentle amenities and
attentions to the fair sex, which is dis
tinctively an American trait. We wish
both Miss Columbia and Uncle Sam
well. They are an interesting pair.
In fact, it would be difficult to find
two more interesting and popular
characters. May they live to sec a

The Georgia “watermillion” is get

Mr. Blaine intends to visit Tennes
see next fall, hut announces thus far
in advance that the only.object of his
visit will be “business.” One trouble
with Mr. Blaine is that lie lias too
much business. lie gets it badly
mixed with bis politics aud the
discharge of bis official duties. The
Little Rock railroad and the Peruvian
guano scheme were “business” in the
it is unfortunate that the panic in
the shirt marker in Atlanta, when these
garments dropped down to four cents
a piece, occurred a day or two before
the legislature met. These gentlemen
could have liaid in enough linen to
have lasted through a prolonged ses
ston. And the question of clean shirts,
toward the heel of the session, is a very
important one —with some members.
It is a wonder that the LcConte
pear has held up as well as it has,when
considering tlic tact, that at the open
ing of every shipping season,—or rather
before the opening—parties v/ill per
sist in sending forward green culls,
blown, perhaps, from the tree. A
dealer at the north who sells his cus
tomer some of these pears, certainly
cannot expect to sell him again. And
the customer will tell his neighbor to
let the LeConte severely alone.

Then haul[down the bloody shirt;
send Foraker to the ycai; make Tan-,
ner strike the dirt, and pull Bill
Chandler’s car, kick Dudley out, and
sound the gong lor honest men to
rally, and then you’ll see it won’t bo
long, ’til from hiO top and valley,
will come a million voices strong—
“Let us have peace.”
The Georgia weeklies will be on the
half shell tills week. The fourth of
July does not come twice a year.
.Some one has written a work en
titled, “The Woman of the Future.”
It is the present woman who will mo
nopolize the attention of the masculine
gender. The present woman can
largely discount the woman of the
future. Dealing in futures in cotton
may do very well, hut when the man
of to-day is asked to take stock iu the
“woman of the future” lie will flatly
tell you that lie will do no such thing.
But he will unhesitatingly strain his
galluses to the point of breaking of!
the buttons, for the girl of the period.
He prefers, on general principles, pos
session to pursuit. And yet sages tell
us that there is more pleasure in pur
suit than in possession. But it is
mighty hard to convince some fellows
that this proposition is true, when a
sweetheart is in the ease.
It is a noticeable fact, that while
B. Harrison shrinks from inviting
“Blocks of Five” Dudley, to sliovo his
shanks under the white house maliog-
ony, yet whenever there is any par
ticularly dirty work to do, Dudley is
appealed to. And doing dirty work
lias become so congenial to Dudley,
that he swallows the slights, and
dives down, to the very bottom of the
pool of political rascality, and revels
in the dirty work cut out for him by
Harrison, Quay and others. He is,
indeed, a pliant and willing tool.
Let us hope, fondly hope, that the
next generation will not duplicate
Rosenthal, the spurious check man
who has been swindling melon grow

lie gets there. Rosenthal says lie is
afraid they will mob him in Brooks-

“And will pa?” “Yes, we will all he

seem altogether satisfied, hut after
some thought lie said:) “I don’t see
how I’m going to have much fun.”

An Editor’a Experience.
Major Sidney Herbert, a well known
journalist in agricultural circles, writes
April i Sth, 1889: Some five years ago
I wrote a letter stating that Swift's Spe
cific had cured me of severe rheuma
tism. Since that time I have had no
return of the rheumatic troubles, al
though frequently exposed to the influ
ences that caused former attacks. Sev
eral of my friends had a similar expe
rience, and are firm in the conviction
that S. S. S. brought a permanent cure.
The searching power of this medicine
is shown in the fact that it developed
a scrofulous taint that was conspicuous
in my blood over thirty years ago, and
has removed the last trace of it. I
have also tested S. S. S. as a tonic after
a severe attack of malarial fever,which
kept me in bed for three months, and
am convinced that the curative and
strengthening properties insured my
recovery from that illness, as I was in
a very low condition of health.
