Atlanta, Aug. 12.—The first thing sprung
ii the House this morning was the peren
nial resolution of Mr. Snelson, of Meriwether.
It came up in a spick and span new dress,
however, anti the author made a warm de
nse of his resolution, which is as follows:
‘•That the tax-pajers of each comity o(
the state arc hereby requested to demand of
their representatives to show cause why
they did not vote for the Snelson resolution
dricting the pay of members to the time
they are in session.”
Mr. Snelson sharply attacked the Atlanta
Constitution for misrepresenting him and
diculing his measures.
Snelson’s efforts appear, at this dis
tance, to he oil the line of reform.
The people expect their representa
tives to stay in their seats. If they
leave them they ought not to draw
pay for the time they arc absent.
Poking fun at Snelson, by the peo
ple of Atlanta, is easily explained:
they do not care if the legislature
were to remain in perpetual session;
it is money in their pockets. The
press of the State would he doing the
people a better service by sustaining
Mr. Snelson in his efforts to correct
the evil, than by holding him up to
“Oh, Dat Watermillion!”
Iu view of the immense possibilities
of the melon crop of the south, Colo
ncl William Duncan, of South Caro
lina, suggested that the surplus he
made into syrup.
This idea was utilized during the
war on more than one plantation in
vords, at the Kimball, on Monday
evening. The moon is again blurred
vith blood. The Olive branch is
vithered. Hon. A. T. McIntyre

From all parts of the United States
:omc accounts of experiments by

finny wonderful cures arc reported.
IVhether these cures are imaginary,
ir not, remains to he seen. If halt

i wonderful stride ahead in medical
Larry Gantt and Mr. Olive, of
Hive hill fame, had a short war of the south, and in I’utnam couuty,
nt least, watermelon syrttpjwas no rar
ity. Properly made it is clearer
than honey and as sweet, and while
the primitive experiments to reduce
it to sugar were failures, there can he
no doubt hut that the surplus crop
cau he made to take the place of the
“honey sweetening” of commerce to a
great extent. It nuy be, too, that
experiments carried on in a more
scientific way will result in the gran
ulation necessary to make sugar.
But that is not absolutely necessary.
It is certain that an excellent quality
of syrup can he made, and it is to
this fact that the farmers should turn
their attention. The melon can he
cultivated at less expense than cither
sugar-can or the sugar beet, and if
the syrup is properly handled it will
take the place of cane syrup and mo
lasses as au article of food.
Colonel Duncan estimates that the
profits of one county of South Caro
lina (Barnwell, would be $200,000 if
the melons were made into syrup,
which is more thau the crop would
bring if it were sold as fruit. In
additiou the refuse remaining after
the crushing process makes excellent
stock feed, and, according the Colo
nel Duncan, this will repay the cost
of making the syrup.

Atlanta, Ga., Aug. Iff.—Au ex
periment is under way here with the
Brown-Sequard elixir, and the result
is looked for with keen interest by
medical men and others who are ac
quainted with flic fact. The patient
is Col. 1. W. Avery, wlio is well
known in Georgia. He has been in
feeble health for some time, and re-
turned home from Washington, D. C.,
Saturday, determined to test the elix
ir on himself. Dr. E. II. Green, his
physician, made a careful preparation
of the elixir late this afternoon, and
within an hour afterward made four
injections of one drachm each in the
patient, one in each arm and one in
cacli leg. The result will he reported

so seriously affected with rheumatism
that he was unable to vnlk without
the aid of crutches. In less than an
hour, through the stimulating effects
of the treatment, Kenny threw away
his crutches and walked away. Dr.
Myers had had no faith whatever in
the panacea, but in answer to a ques
tion he remarked : “I can only say
that the stimulating effect is some
thing marvelous. The man’s pulse
rose to lff-S and lie is walking without
crutches. 'I don't understand it.”
Atanta, Ga., Aug. Iff.—The Olive
hill got a quietus in the House railroad
committee this afternoon. This much

committee consideration since last
December, and no kind of amendment
or substitute lias sufficed to make it
acceptable. The hill and the substi
tute were before the full committee
this afternoon, and after some discuss
ion were tabled by a vote ot 10 to 9.
It is undcrsjpod that on a straight vote
the hill would have been killed by a
much larger majority. The members
of the committee gave notice that a

submitted before any report is made
to the House. This hill will probably
