Virginia, in- conference asse

Third—He has taken from the Re

of the people.

Fourth—He has adopted a plan of

hateful and tyranical.
Fifth—He lias driven from the
counsels ot the party the best and
most popular men in it.
Sixth—He hns removed a county
chairman in order to pack a conven

Seventh—He has tried to force the

Eighth—He has refused to abide by
the decisons of the national Republi

grievances, aud treated our overtures

Fifteenth—That it is the sense of
this conference that no recommenda

pursued either by the members them

that each voter on election day be ad

“If I had a hoy a year old,” said a
merchant to a Times reporter this

He probably has the correct view
of the situation. Georgia’s forests
are among its most valuable material
possessions and present a field for in
vestment, yielding rich returns that
were never surpassed. “It will not
be manv years before the lumber belt
of this section will become the chief
source of supply,” said a lumberman,
and those who then own them will
be made rich thereby. Itjis not to
my interest to ray so, but if I were

THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
Tho New Waltz That Is Winning So Much
The style in dancing varies as much
as the style in bonnets or bustles, or
the way the hair is worn, and goes
through as many transitions. But all
these transitions may be classed under
these heads : the hop; the skip and
the jump. At one time it will be the
fashion to oscillate up and down like a
china figure or an india rubber string.
This may be called the hop season.
At others, dancers to be regeie must
glide about without removing their
feet from the floor, like roller skaters
This is the skip. The jump comes
when the raquet and oilier such dances
are in vogue.
The skip style is now the thing
among those who are devoted to what
may be called, for want of a better
name, leg culture; and apropos ot the
prevailing mode, a new dance is com
ing in which is especially adapted to it.
This is ‘-Le Revc.” It is one of those
soit'.y gliding, sofily starting dances
which reminds one of the bashfulness
of maidenhood. There are certain
dreamy movements which now and
then halt, just enough to give evidence
of ecstasy; then some more gliding,
and another halt or start, while the
music seduces the pair to prolong the
dance ad infinitum.
First, there are three glides, the last
made to a half measure note from the
orchestra, a step spasm thrown in
where a full glide is expected. Then
the foot is thrown forward and instantly
withdrawn behind the other foot, as
though the dancer was shocked for fear
of having done something naughty;
then a little jump with the forward
foot, bringing the other at
ot which the dance is composed, and
all the dancers have to do is to do it all
over again hundreds of thousands of
times, and thus “dream the happy
The dance is very pretty, but like
all other new dances, it is impossible
to tell how great a hold it will take.
Perhaps so many will hesitate to try it
that it will only endure for a season,
with here and there a couple more
confident than the rest to dance it,
while the rest look on green with envy.
It is the simple dance that lasts, and

Bad For Vermont.
It is astonishing to hear that good
fanning lands in Vermont are being
deserted. Here is an old and well
settled section, convenient to seholls

in easy reach for agricultural products
with good roads and all that make
lite attractive, being deserted—her

It is said that full and fruitful
fields in tho West have allured the
planters away, or that the cities have

The showing is a bad one for Ver»
The Macon Telegraph says that the
negroes of Georgia would do well to
shun those "professional negroes” who
are trying to make capital for them
selves out of troubled between the
races. These fellows have been a
source of frequent trouble and have
done most injury to the very class
whom they pretend to be serving.
There are sensible and conservative
negroes in every community in this
state, whose advice and influence do
much to counteract the mischief set
aloot by the agitators. The negro
masses have for years been supporting
a lot of negro politicians, who are too
lazy to do honest work, and to mean
to use their influence to maintain
friendly relations between the races.

By the Mosaic law, the Day of
Atonement is fixed on the 10th day
of tho Hebrew month, Tishri. The
preceding ten days are observed as
“penitential days,” and are devoted
to prayer and penitence, culminating
in the solemn services of the fast day,
which in Leviticus is termed “Shabat
shabbatone,” a Sabbath of Sabbaths.
It wa3 on this memorial day that Mo
ses descended from the mount with
the second tables of the law. On this
day the colien agadol, or high priest,

fervent devotional exercises, founded

The Jewish sages, commenting on
the Kith ehnpter, 110th verse of Lev
iticus, “From all your sins before the
Lord ye shall be clean,’’expound that
text as meaning that a transgression
of which man has been guilty towards
God (and for which he is truly peni

those offences of which he has been guil
