"Should Old Acquaintance be Forgot?”
From across the deep blue sea comes
the Evening • Telegraph, published at
Dundee, Scotland, and on the margin
appears tho name of one whose famil
iar foim and face were ou8e seen daily
on the streets of Thomasville: Peter
Lindsay. The old man in his Scot
tish home, where he is quietly pass
ing tho evening of life, calmly await
ing tho setting of life’s sun, has not
forgotten the friends of “Auld Long
Syne.” Looking back across the bil
lowy ocean, the still sturdy.old “Scot,”
standing on the rugged highlands, on
his native heath, listens to the whis
perings of the winds of the ocean,
borne to him across the Atlantic, from
the home of his adoption. And he
catches the tones of well remembered
oices, voices of friends whom lie has
left behind. And they whisper kindly
greetings to the old man beyond the
Off for Griffin.
Quite a number of the members of
tlufGcorgin Horticultural Society left
yesterday morning for Griffin, to at
tend the annual meeting, which takes
place there, commencing to-day.
Among the number we noticed T. E.
Blackshear, Bart Harablcton, Dr.
Watkins, Prof. Moody, Jos. Hall, N.
Iv. Heeth, K. W. McKinnon, R.&.
McKinnon, Willis Quartermnn, L. A.
Vurnadoe, L. L. Varuadoc, au 1 prob
ably others. They will have a de
lightful visit to Griffin, we know.
Wc regret to know that the Vicc-Prcs.

unable to attend, on account of a se
vere nttack of rheumatism in his
shoulder and arm.
And They all Began to Make Excuses.
Pear shippers stand'around the
post office, when the mail arrives, in a
nervous sort, of an attitude, waiting
for account of sales. “I’m swiudled,”
says one, “Messrs. Grabem & Keep-
em are regular thieves,” says another.
“Iwill never ship another crate to
Swindle & Co.,” says a third. “Cteat-
cm & Holdem have certainly lied; my
pears were choice and well packed,”
says another. Thus -it goes, every
man putting the blame of poor re
turns on his commission merchants.
And in many instances, the criticisms
are no doubt just, but in other in
stances it is clearly the fault ,■ of the
shipper. He puts up green or over
ripe pears, dumps them into a barrel
in a slovenly manner, and then ex
pects to get the top of the market.
No wonder his returns are unsatisfac
Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Ball, Miss Ola
Mallette, Miss May Ainsworth and
Mr. Eli Mallette, who have been
spending some time at St. Simons,
near Brunswick, returned yesterday.
They report a delightful time, and
are beautifully tanned and improved
by the trip. The St. Simons hotel
will close after to-day, as the proprie
tor says the season is about over.
Mr. Mallette informs us that the
house closed on the first of August
last year, and that what appears mex
pticable to us, the fact of closing a
summerhouse in mid-summer, is.made
expedient by reason of the fact that
the people who patronize seaside ho
tels go to the mountains in August

A number ot ladies met al the Li

Mrs. I. Levy, Mrs. Dryer, Mrs.

Thursday evening, to report pi ogress,
at which the final arrangements, as to
place, will be settled.
Mr. Tom Ball visited, and brought
back as a souvenir of his visit a piece
of the old oak tree near Fort Fred
erica, on St. Simons Island, where
John Wesley preached his first ser
mon on this continent. Near the spot
had been built a church which had

LcContc Pears, for shipment, should
be hand packed while quite hard,
and then they will carry satisfactorily
in well-ventilated barrels—ventilate
the sides and ends; shako well in fill

size but comparatively green—sons

them in two or three sizes, putting
uniform pears together. Bijjnnd lit
