1 a .^Shannon’s Jury Bill. 1 rfonang k«w«. | |MbBl that will attract considerable attention when it is introduced into the legislature is that which Senator Shannon, of Twiggs county, is now preparing. The purpose of it is .to abolish exemptions from jury duty in cases of felony. A crying evil in this *state is jury exemptions. In the cities particularly nearly all ol the class of citizens best qualified for jury ; Hulr are exempted. The result is that jjt is extremely difficult to get a ? 1 -Jfljy ihat is competent to render a verdict in accordance with the law and the facts in either civil or crimi nal cases. The fact that a man is rich or prominent, or has important business aflairs which demand the greater part of his time, is no reason why he should be permitted to shirk jury du ty. It is all nonsense to say that business men cannot act as jurymen without making great sacrifice of their business interests. When they want to leave their homes for a week or month they find no difficulty in arranging to do so. It is unjust to impose upon a few citizens the duty of acting as jury men. These few may also have busi ness interests which sufTer because of their temporary inability to direct them, but they arc either too con scientious to shirk the duty which, as citizens, devolves upon them, or they are too poor to comply with the financial conditions upon which *- exemption can be secured. Senator Shannon’s bill docs not go far enough. It ought to include important civil cases us well as the giaver criminal ones. In the courts in the cities cases requiring for tlicir decision a high order of intelligence and good judgement arc all the time being tried. There are so many ex emptions that jurors having the right kind of qualifications are difficult to get. Cases, therefore, are not un- ; frequently determined by those who .are governed by prejudice, or who lack ability to reach the truth from the facts and the law. • Senator Shannon’s bill is only* a step in the right direction. There is certainly great need for reform in the jury system as it exists in many of the counties of this state. The law which, provides for the resumption of work in the Mow \ ork prisons will soon go into effect, and the evils of enforced idleness will now . be.remedied. While the Mew York '? convicts have suffered. dreadfully from the operation of the law.- forbid ding the sale of prison made goods, the experience has been of value in impressing the precepts laid down by the reformers. The horrors of the season of idleness have been declared by wardens to be indescribable, as the introduction of regular work as a part of prison life is welcomed as a verita ble blessing by the unfortunate pris oners. The comparative records of the two systems as shown iu New York should be carefully studied by the authorities of other States, and the object lesson presented should be generally accepted by all persons who arc interested in the humane treat ment of convicts.—Ex. The sickliest community in the United States appears to be Leaven worth, Kan. No less than 22,000 cases of sickness requiring the use of liquor as a remedy were registered at the drug stores in that city last year. “WHAT MEDICINES ABE MOST CALLED FOB 7” Aflkod the reporter of an old druggist. ** Dr. JMerce's preparations,” he refilled. ‘‘They are sold under a positive guar- jin tee that they will, in every case, give satisfaction, or the money is promptly re funded. His 4 Favorite Prescription, for nil those chronic weaknesses, nervous and other derangements peculiar to women, is used with unfailing succors. It euros weak back, bear ing-down sensations, irregularities and weak nesses common to the sex, and being the most perfect of tonic medicines builds up and strengthens the entire system. Tho de mand for it is constant, and I am conversant with scores of eases cured by it.” Returning after a few moments’ absence, the venerable widd i* of tho fiestlo remarked, ‘‘the number of snrsnparilhis and other, so- called, ‘blood inedioines’ is legion; but Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery outsells them all and it is the only blood-purifier out of the many which 1 am obliged to keep upon my shelves, that is gtiarnntecd to benefit nr cure in all cases f # »r which it is recommended, or money paid for it is refunded.” “ In the line of Pills." remarked the old gen tlemen, “tho little Sugar-coated ‘Pellets* put. up by l)r.
