SATURDAY, JCI.T 20, 188!.
Georgia may need a State lionrd of
health this summer or fall. In time
of peace prepare for war; in time of
health prepare tor sickness.
The country will never he satisfied
until John Sullivan is wearing a
striped suit in Mississippi. Give him
a sledge hammer, and put him on a
It is now proposed to pension Sulli
van. It will be done, if the slugger
stands in with Tanner. Tanner would
pension a yaller dog, if the dog had
strained his voice barking at a rebel.
It is said that there are seven mil
lions of children in the United States
who attend school. It must require
an awful lot of “hickory nil” to keep
A republican from Indiana has been
discovered in Washington, so the
story goes, who did not want an office.
Barnum should cage this hoosier and
show him as the greatest living curios
ity of the age.
We move, if it is now in order,
that Kilrain be let of! with a fine, if
he goes to Mississippi and surrenders-
but we insist on a striped suit, a
sledge hammer and a great big rock,
pile, for John Sullivan.
Gov. Lowry may get in the last
blow yet. He is striking right out
from the shoulder—and the chances
are that some court in Mississippi,
acting as referee, will give the last
round to the plucky Governor. Lay
em out, Lowry.
Albany boasts of a trotting ox,
which can make a mile in five and a
half minutes. A reporter of the
News and Advertiser, has been riding
behind the bovine and cheerfully
testifies to his going gait and quali
ties. A Mr. Patterson (no relation
of “Billy”) is the happy owner of the
There is one man who never fails
to knock Sullivan out; it is John Bar

strongest of ’em. His blows arc gen
erally aimed at the mouth, and he
rarely—if ever—fails to plant them
square—right into that opening.
The freedom of the city of Boston,
the “hub," the center of “culchaw’’

Mississippi penitentiary. Boston is a
bully town. And Sullivan is the
bulliest bully in the “hull” lot.
Baked|beans, Ben Butler and bullies,
popular in Boston.
Mr. Joseph Tilman builds the Col
umbus Southern—on paper—from
Albany to Tampa bay, via Quitman.
Mr. Tilman paints the proposed line
in glowing, but not over drawn col
ors. Judge, couldn’t you run it by
Thomasville ? We hope the road
may be built. Quitman, like Thom-
nsville, needs another railroad. And
we sincerely hope she may get it.
If Gov. Lowry is the man we take
him to be, he will make the Queen
and Crescent road think a legal cy
clone has struck that system. Lay it
on to ’em, Lowry. The Q. & (’. peo
ple have been sneering at the Gover
nor for threatening to proceed against
them for aiding the sluggers to violate
the law. They may find—and we
hope they will—that big rich corpo
rations, as well as individuals, are
amenable to law. Their open de
fiance of law should bring swift and

“Mr. Halford, will you please hang
this motto on the wall?” said Mr. Har
rison, handing Lige a well executed
motto, with words as follows:

“Now we'll see,” said the president,
as lie looked at the suspended motto,
“if the papers, which have been criti
cising me for appointing Mrs. Harri

providence and scripture, by bawling
And the president settled hack to
rend a dispatch from Prince Russell,
saying that lie had just wiped ofl his
chin with one of Queen Victoria’s
snowy white napkins.
The True Wife.
Oftentimes I have seen a tall ship
glide by against the tide as if drawn by
some invisible bowline with a hun
dred strong arms pulling it. Her sails
unfilled, her streamers were drooping,
she had neither side wheel nor stern
wheel; still she moved on steadily, in
serene triumph, as with her own life.
But I knew that on the other side ol
the ship, hidden beneath the great
bulk that swam so majestically, thcic
was a little toilsome tug, with a heart
of fire, arms of iron, that was tugging
it bravely on, and I knew il the little
steamtiie-untwined her arm and left
the ship it would wallow and roll about
and drift hither and thither, and go off
with the refluent tide no man knows
And so I have known more than
one genius—high decked, full sailed,
gay pennoned—but that for the bear,
toiling arms and brave, warm-beating
heart of the taithlul little wife that
nestles close to him so that no wind
or wave could part them, would have
gone down with the stream and been
heard of no more.—O. W. Holmes.
The Value "of Prudence.
Prudence is a quality that is also
lately essential to permanent succcst.
A bold, daring speculator may get
rich in a single day, bill without pru
dence and careful thought in the
management of his affairs his fortune
will soon vanish, leaving him poorer
than ever, -
The honest, careful, industrous man
who ha3 common ability and plenty
of energy may be slow in accumulat
ing riches, hut he is sure to make his
way in the world, leaving many of
his associates who are more brilliant
hut less prudent tar behind him.
Be prudent, young man. Attend
to your business carefully, and always
keep the future as well as the present
in mind. If you do this you need
not have any fear of what the future
1ms in store for you.—Augusta

greater ado over choosing a husband

The Georgia Senate has put itself
on record against dancing—in the
new eapitol. Now let them resolve
not to “swing corners” around the
new building longer than is absolute
ly necessary. If the members of the
Senate and House will use their free
passes less, and stick to business, they
will not be “dancing” in and out of

Tennessee ought, now that she has
turned Sullivan loose, invite the
short-haired fraternity to do their
slugging in that State. Gov. Taylor
would make a fair referee, while
Judge McAllister would distinguish
himself as a bottle-holder.
The man who is comfortably fixed
at home should stay there. There is
more comfort anil pleasure ill a well
regulated home than any where else.
There is wisdom as well as brevity in
these scattering remarks.
The I’hihulelphiii Press, in discussing: ‘-The
Time for Women to Marry,” sets the proper
age at from twenty-four to thirty-six.
Our advice: Marry when you get
a good chance, not before. Though
you needn’t .be in any particular
hurry about it. There arc plenty of
men—such as they are. The trouble
with a good many girls is, that they
rush into the market, thinking the
stock of men is short. All a mistake.
The National Teacher’s Convention.
Nashville, Tenn., July 18.—Sec
retary Canfield aroused much enthu
siasm to-day in an appropriate speech
informing the educational convention
and President Marble that a great
grandson of old “Hickory Jackson”
was yesterday horn at the Hermitage,
and that the child had been named
“Albert Marble Jackson,” in honor of
the president of the association. A
.committee, composed of a delegate
from each state and territory and
Canada was appointed to call upon
Mrs. James K. Polk and convey to
her the respects, congratulations and
compliments of the association.
Atlanta, July 18.—In the House
to-day, Mr. Rankin, chairman of the
Western and Atlantic railroad com
mittee, reported the bill by substitute,
leading features of which have already
been published. The bill was made
the special order for next Thursday.

is to come up in the House. Mr.

up a bill embodying the recommendations of

When their work was completed the bill was
submitted to the board and accepted by
them. It asks for an appropriation of not
less than $25,000 annually, of which sum
$5,000 per annum h to be appropriated for

Norris appeared at the Tombs police
court to-day with a requisition from
Gov. Lowry, ofMississippi, calling for
the arrest of Charley Mitchell and
Mike Donovan, who looked after
Kilrain’s interests in his fight with
Sullivan. Detective Norris had no
requisition for Sullivan or Kilrain.
Norris arrived this morning and. In

Charlestown, S. (’., July 18.—
Dr. McDow, slayer of Capt. Daw
son, was expelled from the South
Carolina Medical Society to-day. At
a special meeting of the society the
following resolutions were passed:
Whereas, It has been brought to
the notice of the society that Dr. T,
Ballard DeDow has been proven by
his own confession guilty of immoral,
unprofessional and ungentlemanly
conduct, and that after due notifica
