For One Year.
John Sullivan has been tried and
convicted of prize fighting in the state
of Mississippi. The Judge sentenced
him to one year in prison. His law

released on bond. The authorities

the legal fight, unless he leaves the
Score the last knock down for Gov.
’Twould Make it Cash.
If the Brady bill becomes a law it
will have the effect of making the
guano business a cash one. Manu
facturers would hardly take the
chances of selling on a credit, an ar
ticle which many will swear, in open
court, is Worthless. Well, it would be
a good thing, perhaps, if farmers were
forced to pay cash lor the stuff.
Cash transactions arc always best for
the farmer. And then, it he had to pay
down, he would use less of the slink
ing stuff, and he would know that it
was yotxl, before paying his hard earn
ed dollars lor it.
Georgia Pine Best.
Georgia pine is constantly appre
ciating. Its beauty is not better at
tested than its durability. Mr. Dan
Callahan, an old ami experienced
railroad contractor, recently removed
an oak trestle on the New Orleans
and Northeastern railroad, and found
that all thcl2xl2 posts were rotten
inside. They were so weak that he
could push them over with his hand.
Mr. Callahan says that Georgia long-
leaf yellow pine is the best timber for
bridges and trestles. Its durability is
greater than that of oak, and its de
cay begins from the outside.
Mr. M. F. Amorous, one of the
best known lumberman in Georgia
“I was in Columbus, Ohio, a few
years ago when they were removiug a
bridge of the “old national road,”
over the river. This bridge, I w-is
informed, had been up over forty
years, and the sills came from Geor
gia, and were cut from genuine long
leaf pine. These sills were sound,
with no sign of rot on them.
“All lumber will rot in time ; some
kinds quicker than others. Yellow
piue has a standard of commercial
durability that is not surpassed in its
peculiar uses, by any other wood.
And for strength and elasticity it
it stands at the head.”
It is not strange that Northern and
Western capitalists arc buying up
Georgia pine forests wherever they
can find them.—Telegraph.
New evidences are constantly lieing
brought to light, showing the increas
ing value of Georgia pine lands.

Bainjiriwik, Ga., Aug. 17.—Three
hales of new cotton reached hero yes

Dotham, Ala., via the Alabama Mid
land. Chief Contractors J. M. Brown

ready in time to move flic entire

when ready for market.
Washington, Aug. 18.—President
Harrison is quoted as saying yesterday
before lie left that no whitewashing
report would he accepted from the
the Tanner commission. It looks
more and more as though Commis
sioner Tanner would have to go unless
he is so broadly and deeply indorsed
by the G. A. R. at the national en-
camjiment as to make it impossible.
Birmingham, Aj.a., Aug. 17,—
Dirt was broken to-day with imposing
demonstration at Huntsville for the

Cincinnati due south to Huntsville,

mingham or Savannah. Bonds are
said to have been negotiated with
which to push the line through.
Nr.w Orleans, Aug. 1.N.—The
hoard of directors of the cotton ex

ami hoards nf trade an invita'ion to a
convention of the cotton interest, to
take place in this city on Sept. 11, to
agree on an uniform method for adjust
ment of the difference in the tare be
tween cotton and jute bagging. The
proposition is that from a certain dale
all cptton shall he sold by net weight,
allowing 5 pen cent of the gross weight

1)ekr Paiik, Mu., Aug. 18.—The
President spent the Sunday quietly.
In the morning ho went to the little
chapel of the hotel with cx-Scnator
Davs and listened to a sermon taken
from the parable of the tig tree. The
minister spoke of the worthlessness of
thelives ol those whose aims are selfish,
and how they become unhappy, tor-
gotten and friendless, while those who
live for humanity never lose interest in
life. Private Secretary Halford's
daughter sang tlie solo “Better Lar.d”
during the service.
Washington, Aug. 17.—The week
ly weather crop bulletin, issued by the
signal service, shows that the past
week has been cooler and marked by
more rain than usual throughout the
northern states, Kentucky, Virginia,
North Carolina and Tennessee. It
has been slightly warmer than the
average temperature in the Gulf states.
In the cotton region extending from
Georgia to Texas, the weather was
favorable and the cotton crop improv
ed, although cotton worms arc on the
increase from Alabama westward to
Arkansas, and have caused some
damage to the crop. Mississippi re
ports caterpillars in thirteen counties.
In the eastern portion ol the cotton
region the cotton crop has been some
what damaged by rain, hut farmers
arc yet hopeful.

Years ago, the late Colonel Richard

This is a filet that ought to he borne
in mind by lilt farmers ill the South
while they are engaged in lighting the

may whip the fight in the end, ami it
is to he hoped it will, hut there is no
reason why a now and valuable in
dustry may not he introduced in the
south. The cotton-bagging enter
prise may prove profitable, hut it is
not essentially a new industry.
The cultivation ami manufacture
of jute and ramie, however, would
give the south two new and profitable
industries. The amount of jute fibre
consumed in the United Sates is enor
mous. A writer in the Manufac
turer's R( cord says that more than
0,000,000 jute sacks are annually con
sumed in handling cotton seed, meal
and cake. All heavy gunnies are of
foreign make. The annual increase
in'tlic consumption of jute fibre
the I'nited States is greater than
ady other nation. The United States
is a large consumer of jute fibre for
handling the cotton crop and its
products than all the rest of the
world. The United States is a larger
consumer of jute fibre for handling
the grain crop and its products than
all the world besides. The United
States is a larger - consumer of fibre
other than cotton for harvesting its
grain crops than all other countries
of the globe. The United States
the largest consumer of jute fibre
miscellaneous fabrics, employing it
in a greater variety of uses than all
other nations put together.
According to tables carefully pre
pared by A. I!. Turner, Jr., of Bos
ton, president of the Flax and Hem])
Spinners and Growers association,
flax, hemp, jute and manufactures of
them rank fourth in invoice value of
imports, while rating twenty eight in
the list of protected articles. Among
the fibres and textiles, wool and the
manufactures therefrom were import
ed in 1SS7 to an invoice value of
()0,f>S(?,(>l I, and subjected to an
average rate ol duty of y8.8L per
cent. Flax, hemp, jute and their
manufactures came second, with an
invoice value of 88-1,807,28-'!, and an
average rate of duty of only 28.10 per
cent. Silk and manufactures follow
ed with an invoice value of 1,2114,-
277, and an average rale of duty of
10.71 per cent. Cotton ami maim

being 820, laOJIJ!), and average rate
of duty 10.17 per cent.
