WHERE DO TOV LIVE?
I knew a man whose name was Horner,
Who used to live on Grumble Corner.
Grumble Corner, in Cross-Patch Town,
And he never was seen without a frown.
He grumbled at this; he grumbled at that,
He growled at the dog; he growled nt the cat;
He grumbled at morning; he grumbled at
And to grumble and growl was his chief
He grumbled so much at his wife, that she
began to grumble as well ns he;
And nil the children, wherever they went,
Reflected their parent’s discontent.
If the sky was dark, and betokened rain,
Mr. Hornet was sure to complain.
And if there was never a cloud about,
He'd grumble because of n threatened
His meals were never to suit his taste;
He grumbled at baling to eat in haste;
The bread was poor, or the meat was tough,
Or else he hadn’t had half enough.
No matter how hard his wife might try
To please her husband, wifh scornful eye
He’d look around, and then, with a scowl,
At something or other begin to growl.
Occ day, as I loitered along the street,
My old acquaintance I chanced to meet,
Whose face was without the look of care,
And the ugly frown it used to wear.
“I maybe mistaken perhaps,” I said,
As after saluting, I turned my head;’
“But it is a'nd it isn’t the Mr. Horner,
Who lived so long on Grumble Corner.”
I met him next day, and I met him again,
In melting weather and pouring rain;
When stocks were up, and when stocks were
But a smile, somehow, tad replaced the frown.
It puzzled me much, and so, one day,
I siezed his hand in a friendly way,
And said : “Mi. Horner, I’d like to know
Wlint can have happend to change you so.”
He laughed a laugh that was good to hear;
For it told of conscience, calm and clear,
And he said, with none of the old time drawl:
“Why, I’ve changed my residence, thatVall.”
“Changed your residence?” “Yes,” said
It wasn’t healthy on Grumble Corner,
ncT so I moved; ’twas a change complete;
And you’ll find me now on Thanksgiving |
Now every day, as I move along
The streets so filled with the busy throng,
I watch each tace, andean always tell
Where men and women and children dwell;
And many a discontented mourner
Is spending his days on Grumble Coiner,
Sour and sad, whom I long to entreat
To take a house on Thanksgiving street*

We heartily second the suggestion
of Brother Russell to bring them to the
“garden spot of the state.” They
would receive a cordial welcome and
hospitable treatment from the citizens
of -all the counties named, and would,
we think, be favorably impressed with
our climate, soil, productions and
capabilities. One thing, however,
might bar the possibility of capturing
any of the party as settlers by any of
the lower counties named: any man
or set of men' chaperoned by Col.
Glcssner would naturally and unavoid
ably fall so much in love with him as
to become Naomic and abide in Sum

Ohio farmers and business men to visit
the Georgia State Fair, the Piedmont

in the Recorder, the Southern Empire,
and descriptive pamphlets that hare
been distributed in Ohio.
Many will come down who helped
entertain the late farmers’ excursion
in Ohio, ar.d|the farmers and newspa
per men who participated in that ex
cursion only want to show the coming
visitors what Georgia hospitality is.
This excursion is only the forerun

will tend to make the two sections

bring these Ohioans into southwest

TheyAro Not Yet States.
The New York Herald says : "The
two Dakotas, Montana and Washing
ton, are not yet states. They are still
territories. They are, however, now
entitled to admission to the union,
since they have elected state officers,
pursuant to the act of congress. The
only remaining formality necessary to
admission is that the governor of each
shall certily to the president the re
sult of Tuesday’s election, and the
president shall issue a proclamation
announcing such result. Until a new
apportionment is made uy congress,
North Dakota, Montana and "Wash
ington will have one representative
each, and South Dakota, two. Each
will have two senators to be chosen
bv the legislature elected on Tuesday.
These eight senators and five repre
sentatives will be emitted to seats
the coming congress, assuming, of
courser that the president issues the
requisite proclamation in season.
That proclamation will proclaim the
birth of four new states—more than
have ever been entered at one time
since the foundation of the govern
ment. It will enlarge the union from
thirty —eight to forty two states, al
though, under an act of congress, the
four new stars will not be added to
the flag until the next fourth of July.
It will increase the senate from seven
ty-six to eighty-four member*, the
house of representatives lrom three
hundred and twenty five to three
hundred and thirty, and the electoral
college from four hundred and one to
four hundred and fourteen. Politically,
the admission of the new states will be
a substantial advantage to the repub
licans. They get six of the senators
and fiye of the representatives. That
will give them in the next congress
forty-five ot the eighty-four senators, a
majority ot eight. It will give them a
hundred and sixty-eight ol the House,
or six more than the opposition, With
a republican president, this majority
will make the republican party respon
sible to the country tor the legislation
of the session.”
BANQUET AT THE CLUB.

cians—Forecast of the New
A magnificent bnnquet was given
at the Capital City club last night by
Mr. Jack J. Spalding to tho delegates
who attended the St. Louis conven
tion in 1888.
Heavy portierres, hung across the
end of the hall oh the second floor,
converted the two back rooms into
one hall, where the table were spread.
Wax candles in silver candelnbras,
cast a soft light over the damask, and
u beautiful chain of flowers, which
was twined about tho fruit stands,
pervaded the room with a delicious
At 8 o’clock Mr. Spalding’s guests
were ushered into the dining hnll.
They were: J. H. Butt, W. H.
Willis, Pope Barrow, W. L. Glessner,
W. J. Weeks, F. G. DuBignon, R. J.
Williams, B. D. Erani, ,Jr., R. D.

Jack J. Spalding, T. W. Glover,
John Triplett, F. II. Richardson, W.
H. Lumpkin, Hon. Patrick Walsh, of
tho Chronicle, Augusta; Alex C.
King, Hou. Patrick Calhous.
AVhile the delicious menu was
being served, the gentlemen gave
themselves over to reminiscences of
tho great political campaign in which
they had all taken part. The men
naturally quiet were carried away by
tho example of their fellows, and tho
general conversation sparkled with
bright sayings and appropriate senti
After the cofifco nnd cigars were
served, speech-making began, and
until 10 o’clock one after the other of
the guests held their fellows forgetful
of t.hn passing time by their eloquence.
All the speeches wero of a political
nature, and the general sentiment ex
pressed by all was that the future
issuos of the two great parties would
be tariff reform. They also express'
ed a belief that though Cleveland had
failed in his re-election, his adminis
tration had been pure, and tho next
campaign would show a vast change
in public sentimeut.
A Substitute for Fourth of July.
Charleston News ainl Courier.
Two gentlemen were arguing the
question yesterday as to whether all
the signers ol the Declaration of Inde
pendence affiixed their signature to
the document at the same lime. It
was impossible to settle the dispute
without reference to the histories, and
it was remarkable how many men to
whom the question was put failed to
give an answer promptly. In all prob
ability there is not one man in a thous
and will be able to answer it off-hand.
Accordidg to "Carroll’s Catechism
History,” John Hancock was the only
gentlemen who signed ihe Declaration
on the 4th of July. One other gentle-
man signed in the following Novem
ber, and the rest, the big majority,
made their quill-marks on the 2nd of
August. According, therefore, to one
of the principles, in fact the fundamen
tal principle, ot the constitution of the
United. States, the Fourth July should
be celebrated on the 2nd of August.
Bill Arp says: Wlint would we do if
we didn’t have the negro to write
about and talk about? The newspa
pers and magazines are discussing tho
race problem continually and doing
their best to solve it. The people
are pondering over it at home
by the fireside, nnd all this shedding
light and spreading knowledge and
preparing the way for whatever may
happen. But still there is nothing
done nor likely to be done. It is too
big a thing to he hurried by anything
that man can do. By slow and sure
degrees it will work itself out, and I
recou we had better let it alone for a
while and watch the workings of
manifest destiny. I think that Gen
eral Stephen D. Lee’s brief reply to
Mr. Grady on the subject is the most
scusible thing that has been said or
written. He is not alarmed about the
situation, and he lives |iu the uegro
country. The Appeal, to Pliaroah
reads well aud is the result of thought
and research, but in this age theories
are rudely knocked aside by facts.
Wc theorized on tho war, nnd some of
our preachers said that if we didn’t
whip tho fight, they would lose faith
in the providence of God. We theo
rized about making cotton, and said
that the white man could not make it,
and the free negro wouldn’t. Pliar-
oah says: “NotWo dissimiliar races
ever lived together in peace.” When
the fact is the whites and the blacks
have been living together in peace,
here at the south, for a century. The
last twenty-five years the negro has
been a free man, aud we aro living in
peace yet; about as much peace us
could be expected—in fact, more
peace than there is between labor and
capital, in the white race. He says
there would have been immigration in
the south long ago, if the negro hud
not been here. Then we ought to
thank the good Lord for protecting us
from the anarchists and communists,
and the scum and paupers of Europe.
Wc-don’t invite immigrants who are
afraid of tho negro.
Girls at the University.
The experiments in educating wo
men have led to the question,why can
not women attend the universities ?
The answer is that they do attend
them. At the Ann Arbor and Cornell
they attend classes with the young
men.?: Harvard and Columbia col
leges have put up what they call
annexes for girls, having no organic
connection with those institutions,
but enjoying many of the advantages
of a larger university.
It is urged that the female semi
naries are not able to hire the same
talent that male colleges have done,
nor have they provided the same ad
vantages in the way of library or ap
paratus that the older and more
wealthy institutions have done. The
“annexes” are said to bn cumbrous
and insufficient, but the is a well-
defined prejudice against the co edu
cation of the sexes. This is confined
to no one part of the country. It is
not the established custom, and it is
probable that the separate colleges for
girls will continue to flourish.
But the country is moving in this
direction. The faculty of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania has been consid
ering the matter and by vote shows a
decided disposition to offer facilities
to the young women of their state.
Possibly they • ealize their obligation
to the girls in this respect, and are
making an effort to open at least a
side door to the higher education of
females in their state. The discus
sion has come homo to Georgia.
Recent Senate Jdebatcs have shown
decided disposition to do something
for the women. The bill opening the
University proper did not pass, but
her right to enter the branch colleges
was established by tho bill which
passed the Senate. This is probably
the entering wedgo. The female
colleges in Athens even now enjoy
lectures from University professors,
and the higher classes of a young
ladies’ school in Augusta frequently
attended chemical lectures with the
classes of the Medical college.
The world i3 moving and thinking,
and the timo may come when ex peri
ments in Michigan, New York and
Ohio may be repeated in Georgia.—
