The Mobile Register notes the
ctirious fact that no case has yet been
reported in which a woman tried to
prolong life by the use of the Bruwn-
Sequard elixir. It thinks that one
reason for this is that women don’t
like to acknowledge that they are old ;
and another is that they dislike more
than men to be humbugged. At any
rate, the fact that they have taken
no stock in the so-culled elixir speaks
well for them.

A New Swindle.
Some of the papers are telling of a
new swindle that has lately been work
ed upon the farmers of Arkansas. If
in Arkansas, it is only on the side of
good sense to be looking out for it in
A wealthy looking old farmer ap
pears in some locality and is anxious
to purchase a farm. After some ne»
gotiations, a trade is made with some
one who wants to sell at a good price
for cash and then $50 is paid as ear
nest money until the purchaser can
return to his home up north for money
with which to pay the balance. Soon
alter he has left, another party conies
along and is so highly pleased with
■the farm that lie offers $1,000 in ad
vance on the price of the first pur
chaser. This stimulates the farmer
into an effott to buy back the first con
tract, which he succeeds in doing by
paying back the $50 already advanced
and adding $500 to it. The (arm is
now ready for the second purc’na cr,
but where, oh! where is he? Never
again does he appear on that pariicu-
ticular scene. In a word, the fjriyicr
is out $500 and the confederate swin
dlers are in $250 each. The farmers
should be on their guard against this
seductive bait thrown out lor them to
Lookout, Federal Officers.
It may not be amiss at this stage of
the proceedings in Georgia, to quote
the following section from the civil
“Any oflievr in the executive civil service
who slmll use his official authority or in
fluence (or the purpose of interfering with
an election or controlling the results there
of; or who shall dismiss or cause to be dis
missed, or use influence of any kind to pro-
urc the dismissal of any person from any
place in said service because sueli person lias
refused to be coerced in his political action,
or lias refused to contribute money (or po
litical purposes, or lias refused to render
political service, and any officer, clerk, or
other employe in [tic executive civil service,
ho shall willfully violate any of these
rates, or nuv of the provisions of sections 11.
12, 13 and 14, of the act entitled “an act to
regulate and improve the civil service of the
United .States," approved January in, 1883,
slmll he dismissed from office.”
As Mr. Harrison took occasion
during his career in the Senate to call
on heaven to witness bis sincerity in
his advocacy of civil service rules and
regulations, it would appear, at first
glance, that. Mr. Harrison would see
that this rule is enforced. But will
lie do it? Aye, there’s the rub. “To
be, or not to be,” is the great question
among the hungry horde of republi
can office seekers. And their name is
The latest crop report ot the Department
ot Agriculture at Washington makes a good
showing for Georgia based on information
received from all parts of the state as late as
September 1st. The average condition of
the principal crops is put as follows: Corn
00, cotton 05, potatoes P5, wheat SS, rye till.
The number of hogs for rattening as com
pared with the number last year is 101, and
their average condition and size is too. The
averages given for Georgia compare favora
ble with those for the other states. The
abundance of corn and hogs in Georgia is a
most cheering sign- The farmers ot this
state will come much nearer raising their
own provisions this year than they hav
since the war.—Ex.
Wltanever the farmers of Georgia
learn to make their own bread aud
meat, learn it they can, and learn it
they must, they will be the most in
dependent and prosperous people on
.Some persons who arc scrambling for
homesteads in Oklahoma and other parts of
the wild west, seem to he oblivous to the
fact that they may find good hinds in sever
al southern states. There are in Mississippi
alone nearly a million of acres ot land sub
ject to the homestead entry on very easy
terms. These wild lands are for the most
part in the southern portion of the state.—
And Georgia also offers many solid
inducements to settlers.
The President’s Salary.
The president of the United States
is allowed a salary of $50,000 a year,
and there may be those who suppose
that he pays all expenses connected
w.th the white house family out of that
$50,000. Besides the private secre
tary, the president has an assistant
secretary, six clerks, a telegraph opera
tor, a steward, an usher, four tnessen-
sengers, five door keepers, a watchman,
an engineer and seven policemen. The
government makes an appropriation
of §40,000 a year to pay these em
ployes, an additional sum of $57,000
to meet contingent expenses. Thus
it will be seen that the expense of
having a president is $147,000 a year.
After all, the people lake pretty good
care ot the ruler of the nation.

The Great Peach Growing State.
It is said that Mr. Rumph, the great
peach grower of Marshalvillc, Ga.,
has already sold nearly §50,000 worth
of peaches this season, and his crop is
by no means exhausted. Some idea
of the value of the fruit crop may be
gathered from the statement that
three orchards in Marshalville will
ship five car-loads daily this week.
This means 2,000 bushels daily this
week, which represents, after freight
is paid, between §30,000 and §35,000.
Georgia is destined to be the great
pcaelt growing State of the Union,
and wilt rank first as a peach produ
ing State, as Florida ranks first in
the orange industry, and Georgia,
with her melon farms, LeConte pear,
peach and plum orchards, will stand
at the head of the fruit producing
states of the Union.—Dalton Citizen.
