The deluded negroes of Liberty
county have been preparing for some
tinjc for their ascension to heaven, to
day, the 16th of this month, having
been designated by their false Christ,
as the time when earthly matters
would be brought to a close. Some
think of going by “dem golden stairs,”
while others arc expecting wings with
which to fly away. They are "jis
bound fer dc happy land of Canaan,’
bound to “clcbe de skies.” Some of
them have decided to come by Thom
asville. Well, Thomasville is about as
near heaven as a portion of them will
ever get—unless they mend their ways.
A large excursion is advertised to
leave AValthourvillc at an early hour
this morning. It will reach here some
time this forenoon. An immense
crowd is expected. The Liberty
county colored contingent will find a
more orderly and intelligent class of
colored people here than they have
been accustomed to associate with.
Let us hope they will learn something
by coming among the intelligent col
ored people of Thomasville.
New Brick Yard.
“A large tract of good clay land, on
the line of the East Tennessee, Vir
ginia and Georgia railroad, between
the brick yards of Solomon & Spark
and Stratton’s, has been purchased by
Moore & Williams, of Thomasville,
from Mr. Gunn. They are extensive

It is hardly probable that Messrs.
Moore & Williams will remove all

keep up their Thomasville business,

He will look after the Macon business,

Returns From Thomas County.
Thomasvii.m:. G11., August 13.—
Tho tax returns are now all iu for all
the counties, and Thomas shows a
gratifying increase. The taxable
property of the county was returned
in 1888 atj 84,437,751 ; in 1889 at
8-1,79-1,435. making an increase of
$356,748 or eight per cent, gains on
There were nine districts in the
county, and every district shows a
gain except one, East Glasgow. This
district is a negro district mostly.
While the total taxable values have
decreased in a, the amount of proper
ty owned by negroes has increased.
The negroes have gained in every
district except Boston, but they have
lost less in Boston than the whiles
have in East Glasgow.
It may be interesting to note that
the per cent, of gains by the negroes
is much greater than the average per
cent, of gain, or the gains of the
whites. The average gain has been
eight per cent. Of the gains ol the
whites, very nearly seven per cent.;
while the negroes have gained 33J
per cent. Does this point a moral ?
What He Thinks oflt,
I)r. J. F. Alexander, of Atlanta, a
brother of Judge Alexander, ol this
place, iu speaking of the new elixir,
to a reporter of the Constitution, says:
I don’t know what to think about
it,” said Dr. Alexander when asked
his views yesterday. “I am waiting
to see some farther developments be
fore I make up my mind. As yet I
don’t think there lias been sufficient
trial made to eotno to any conclusion.
There is no doubt that if it will ac
complish what is claimed it is a great
thing. I should like to sec the ex
periment made here and I was talk
ing to Dr. Ward to-day about trying
to take some steps to test it. Home
of flic reports conic from such
reliable men that it seems impossible
to disbelieve them, and I don’t look
at these things with as much doubt
as I oucc did. Look at vaccination;
the man who invented it was ridicul
ed without end.
If there should prove to be any
thing in this discovery, I think it
would he of immense advantage to
practitioners without interfering with
the practice of medicine.”

Thomasville, Ga., Aug. 13.—Dr.
A - P. Taylor is a practicing physician
in this city, of high standing,
a man of conservatism and experience.
He is experimenting with the Brown-
Ssquard elixir of life. Your corres
pondent saw the doctor to-day and
told him he wanted an interview for
"I don’t want to get into the pa
pers,” said the doctor; “I don’t care
for that kind of advertising or notorie
We told him that he cpuld not well
help himself, and that now he had the
advantage of telling his story straight.
“Wait a few days, then, until I can
make a fuller report.”
Wc pushed the interview, and the
doctor continued :
“Whatever may be said of others
Brown-Sequard is an honest man and
tried man. He has been considered
authority in the medical world. lie
is a man of close'observation, and ac
customed to the most thorough exper
imental methods. He may be mistak
en. He said, himself, when announc
ing this discovery to the physicians of
the mecical academy: 'Gentlemen, I
may be off, but I am 72 years old, and
I feel as vigorous and as free from
aches as any young man. I have used
the elixir on myself and its virtue has
lasted ten days. You gentlemen will
have to decide if I am a crank.’
“What did you use, doctor, and
what was the condition of your patient?”
“My patient is an old man who has
suffered long and severely from paral
ysis and sciatica. The preparation
was pressed through filtering paper.
The result was six drachms of a
reddish colored liquid Ircc Irom
any sediment. Half of this
was taken and injected through a
hypodermic syringe into the arm par
tially paralyzed and the hip of the old
man. The whole process consumed
one hour. The patient claimed that
the pain left his left arm and strength
returned in about an hour. The vir
tue lasted for twelve hours and then
seemed to pass away. I cannoj say
whether the change in the patient was
real or imaginary. I am not at all sat
isfied either for or against the new
method, but propose to continue my
experiments on a more extensive and
The Proposed New Road Law.
The legislature lias tackled the road
laws. Well, they need tackling, A
bill has been introduced which will
change, very materially, the system.
The bill proposes to amend the
road laws of Georgia so as to provide
for a tax in lieu of road work, and
to provide for the levy and collection
of ail ad valorem tax by the county
authorities for the purpose of more
efficient working of the public mads
in this state. The ordinaries and
road commissioners are given author
ity to enforce the road work in their
respective counties. All persons now
subject, but any person when siun-
nioiid lor road work, may commute
this work by a payment of 50 cents
for each day lie is subject to work.
The receipt of the road overseer for
this sum will constitute a lull release
from road duty.
