The News, speaking of the state
road question, says:
The legislature should at least sub
mit two propositions—one for the
leasing of the road and the other for
the sale of it. The responses may lie
such as to cause the question ot the
a«lvisibility of selling the road to he
given a much more careful considera
tion than it has yet received. It will
certainly do no harm to invite bids
for the purchase of the road. There
may be some who are prepared to
give a price for the property that
would cause even those who were
strongly opposed to selling it,to doubt
whether they were not making a mis

Hon. W. J. Northen met Genera
Manager Belknap in Augusta Monday,
and these two arranged a very impor
tant scheme. About Sept, i the Cen
tral railroad will carry a delegation of
twenty Georgia farmers to the great
west. A special car will be arranged,
and the fanners’ convention and alli
ance meeting are each to select one
man from every district in Georgia to
make this trip. These men are to be
practical and prominent farmers and
will take in the fall fairs and stock
shows in the west. It is arranged that
they visit the great grain and stock
farms of Indiana, Illinois and Ohio
and get new ideas about farming
methods. The reports and experience
of such delegations, when brought
home to the people, will be of great
value to the state. The idea arose
with Mr. Northen, and the enterprise
of Manager Belknap will carry it into
successful execution. Last year the
Central railroad sent a cabinet car with
Georgia products up into the west

It is said that 50 members have signi

3rd section ot the lease bill. As there
are something over twenty sections in
the bill, it will be seen that the pros

ture before some time in the nineties,
is not flattering.

into Savannah over the Central’s

—Gentlemen: Nearly two years ago I con
traded malaria into my system, and suffer
ed greatly from time to time from it in va
rious forms in which it developed. Some
times had severe chills nnd fever—indiges
tion followed it, and I was generally i#it of
health. Last spring lor more than
months I was greatly troubled wilt, a dis
ordered condition of the bowels; which 1
believe was the result of the inn.aria still
existed in my system. I visited two
three mineral springs celebrated for the
cure of malarial diseases, without the slight
est benefit. I was also treated as the dill'
ent symptoms developed by the most skill
ful physicians, but was not relieved. About
two months ago; 1 concluded to try Calisaya
Tonic, prepared by Westmoreland Pros.,
but I must confess I had little confidence of
being materially benefited bv it 1 have taken
five or six bottles of the Tonic—from the
beginning 1 felt relief and continued to
improve until now 1 feel quite as well and
in as perfect health as I ever did in my life,
and believe I am perfectly well.
||. P. HAMMETT, President
The effects of maleria in the system is a
hard thing to eradicate, but will promptly
yield to the wonderful and sovereign remedy,
Westmoreland’s Calisyn Tonic. Try it.
When you suffer from dyspepsia, heart
burn, malarial affections, kidney disease,
liver complaint and other wasting diseases.
When you wish to enrich the blood a
purify the system generally. When y
wish to remove all feeling of weakness,
weariness, lack of energy, try a hottl
brown’s Iron bitters, and see how greatly
it will benefit you. It surpasses all known
jeinedics as an cnricher of the blood, and a
perfect regulator of the various bodily func
tions. Ask your druggist for it.
