John is no relative of the late
George/ Washington. A fellow who
would steal a pair of pants, would
have lied about that cherry tree. John
is very much colored. He has hccu
wanted in Tliomasville for sometime,
and now he is wanted in Cairo. Last
Saturday John concluded that he
must have a new pair of pants to wear
next day—Sunday, so he stole them
from a merchant of that thriving
town. But lie was caught. ’Squire
Singletary set on him and hound him
over to the superior court for larceny.
The Marshal stored John away in the
calaboose for safe keeping, expecting
to bring him to Tliomasville on Mon
day, where he would live in a brick
While the pious people of Cairo
were at church on Sunday, and a
restful quiet brooded over the town,
John concluded it was not good for
him to he there.
The Marshal found the hole through
which he crept. It was all that was
left to remind him of John Washing
In the quiet hush of the Sabbath—
even while Sabbath bells were ring
ing—John left, left for parts un
known; left the town far behind him,
going out into the broad open coun
try, where he could commune with
nature undisturbed, hear the birds
sing, and pluck the wild flowers as he
wandered through nature’s grnnd
He is wandering through naturo’s
grand cathedral yet, loitering, per
haps, beside somo rippling stream as
it merrily sings on its way to tho sea;
resting, anon, in some sylvnn glen,
where the vulgar eyes of the law
reacheth not; watching, maybe, the
fleecy clouds as they shift and sail
ncross the azure blue; catching the
music of the sphorefe by night, study
ing tho heavenly bodies as, in.. pbedi-
cnce to the Divino command, they
move in their fixed orbits; humming,
at times: .
“1 lovfe to steal away.”
Thus, in the calm contemplation qf
nature, away from tho busy marts of
men, undisturbed by the minions of
the law, untrammclcd by the convcu
tionalities of life, this son of Ham
breathes the fresh, pure air of Heaven.
And the Marshal of Cairo is ex

Tltc only unfavorable criticism that has
been made on the show is that it is not old-

plays a trig part In the programme. Then

But the wonders of the show are tho im
perial Japs. To describe all of their feats—
to tell of half they did—would stretch out
tins notice to an ahnorrri 1 length. The jug
gling of one little fellow, the top-spinning
of another, the walking on a sword ladder
of another, and then the gymnastic feats of
all surpass anything ever seen In the south.
This feature of the show alone puts it away
ahead of any ot its rivals and makes it well
worth anybody's mite to sec.

Guests of the Stuart have noticed a
splendid specimen of a Newfoundland
dog about the hotel, and whoso big
shaggy form, good natured, intelli
gent ways, and kindly disposition, have
made him a general favorite with all
who frequent that popular hostelry.
Gordon has a good memory. He was
just emerging from the puppy state
when the Waverly house was burned.
He was a guest of the house at the
time, and while many others lost al
most everything, he saved his ward
robe. This may he explained by
stating that Gordon slept on the first
floor. .He did not have to throw his
trunk or grip out of the windows from
the second or third story, as many of
the guests had to do. The dog seems
to retain a vivid recollection of that
fire. The loud clanging of tho fire
bell, the rush of the firemen, the
sharp, quick commands of the officers
of the department and companies; the
puffing 0*' the steamer, the streams of
water, the hurrying to and fro, the
escaping guests, the flaming building,
and the scenes incident to that fire,
made an impression on Gordon.
Ever since, whenever the fire bell
rirgs, no matter at what hour of tho
night, Gordon lifts up his voice and
contributes its volume to tho general
alarm, barking and chasing up and
down tho halls, as if ho would wake
every body tip, in order that they
might escape. You see, he doubtless
thinks the hotel is on fire, and wants
to do his share toward arousing the
This is a remarkable instance of the
intelligence ot the Newfoundland dog.
Gordon ought to be a good, intelli
gent dog, for he is named after Geor
gia's Governor—John 13. Gordon.
His eyes were hardly open during the
Governor’s race with Major Bacon.
He was young, very young; knew
little of the world,, and less of politics,
but he flatly refused to cat any bacon
.during that exciting campaign.
As electric lighting is being intro
duccd in Thomasvillc, anything touch
ing the new system, and its wires
its advantages and dangers, is of in
terest to our people. In Atlanta,
where the telegraph, telephone, fire
alarm and electric wires are becoming
numerous, the question of how to best
arrange this multiplicity of wires is
claiming the attention of the city au
thorities. It has been suggested there
that wires be not allowed to cross or
run anywhere except by • permission
of the city engineer. While we have
not as many wires to contend with in
Thomasville as they have in Atlanta,
it is tn order, perhaps, to suggest to
our city authorities that at the start is
the best time to take hold ol this mat
ter, for the purpose of properly pro
tecting fife and property. There is no
danger from these wires if they are
properly hung aud arranged. The
company here would readily follow any
suggestions, or promptly comply with
any municipal regulations.
