Who are Legal Voter* on tha No Fonoe
We republish elsewhere for the
benefit of our readen included in the
territory which is to vote on the stock
law on the first Saturday in December,
the full text of the act passed by the
legislature authorizing, and ordering
said election. There are some doubts
as to who are the legal votera in said
election. This is made plain by the
act itself. In order that there may
be no misunderstanding on this point
we may mention briefly the pre-requi
sites necessary to constitute a legal
voter in this election.
1st The man must be n legal voter
in the state; this requiies a twelve
month's residence in the state, and six
Months in the county.
2nd He must live in the territory
described and designatedin the act!
3rd. He must he a freeholder.
These are essential to make a man a
qualified voter in the coming election.
The subject of the no fence law is one
which should challenge the earnest
attion of every freeholder in that sec
tion. It has been tried, and now is in
successful operation in about half of
the counties in this state, and every-
whpro it has worked successfully.
Even the bitterest opponents of the
nofence law,when it was firstagitated in
counties where it has been adopted,
are now the strongest advocates of the
measure. It has worked well every
where else, and it will work well here.
It wants only a trial to prove that it
is the farmers friend. Tho enormous
cost of keeping up fences in this coun
ty, if correctly summed up, would'
startle the men who have for genera
tions footed these unnecessary bills.
We take this occasion to again call
the attention of those living along the
line of Florida, and within a few miles
of it, to the fact that under the laws
Loon county, which has
opted the no fence law, is not requ
to fence against Georgia, and parties
living in the section mentioned, will
have to fence in their stock to keep
them from raiding on the no fence
territory across the line, whether that
section of Thomas county adopts the
tjo f$nce law or not. It would be
well to bear this fact in mind. Read
the act elsewhere carefully and give
the subject that attention which its
magnitude and importance deserves.

Mardre’s dwelling house, out-houses
and store-room, together with cotton,
peas and other articles on his planta
tion, 12 miles from town, 1 where his
son, Mr. Robert Mardre, lives, was
entirely consumed by fire Wednesday
night, catching from the cook room.
Near the dwelling was a store house,
where Mr. Robert Mardre carried on
a business, and all the contents, save
one bolt of humespun was burned. Mr.
Mardre’s loss is about $800 to $1,000
with $500 insurance, which he had
with J. S. Montgomery, in the Under
writer Insurance Co., of New York.

On the Fifteenth of November.
We again call the attention of our
readers to the Stock Breeders’ fair,
Confederate reunion, basket dinner
and big barbecue, to be held at the
old- fair grounds, in Thomasville, on
the 16th of November. Ample and
elaborate preparations are being made
by the general committee and the sub
committees to make the occnsion a
notable one. The finest exhibition of
home raised stock ever seen in South
Georgia will take place. This is a
subject in which every farmer of the
county is directly and vitally inter
ested. There is no reason why
Thomas county’s farmers should not
raise their own stock, instead of pay-
ibg ont thousands and thousands of
dollars, aa they now do, to Tennessee,
Kentucky and eastern stock raisers.
It is estimated, by those who are
familiar with the facts, that Thomas
county pays out, annually, one bun
dred thousand dollars for stock.
This is a heavy drain, and should be
stopped; and it can be stopped, if the
proper course is pursued.
The reunion of the ex-Confederatcs
of this county will be the first since
the war. It is earnestly hoped that
every ex-Confederate soldier in the
county will be here. A book for
registration will be prepared, in which
every old soldier will be expected to
register his name and command.
Handsome badges will be prepared
for the veterans. Nothing will be
left undone on the part of the man
agement to fill the day with social en
joyment, Everybody, his wife and
family, are invited.
The No Fenoe Meeting.
We beg to call the special atten
tion of all those living south of the
railroad, to the notice of the meeting
elsewhere, on next Saturday week,
tho 2nd day of November. The
fence law will be discussed by a num
ber of prominent speakers. Each
side will be heard. The discussion
will bring out all the points in
favor of the no fence law, as well as
the objections to tho same. Let
everybody come and hear the speak
A Lively Prisoner.
Yesterday morning, wbilo Mr. Ed
McRee was at the depot, en route to
Albany, he recognized a negro pas
senger as John Jackson, an escaped
convict from his father’s convict
camp in Lowndes county. The negro
at the same moment caught sight of
Mr. McRee, and tho recognition was
mutual. Jackson ran for all he was
woith, but the race, though lively,
was short, and he was soon looking
down the barrel of a revolver pointed
in his face. As Mr. McRee wus go
ing off on the Albany train and could
not wait, he turned bis man over to
Mr. Joe Beverly, to be placed in jail.
Mr. Beverly brought him up town
and summoning the assistance of
Officer Kottman they started with
him to jail. When in front of that
place the prisoner made another break
for liberty, but was again overtaken,
and this time locked up. He was
taken back to the camp last night by
Mr. McRee on his return from Al
bany. Jackson, who was sent up for
stealing money,is reported to be a bad
one to manage.
The reporter made us say yesterday
that Mr. G. R. Clark, of Richmond,
Va., was a guest of Mr. Lee Brown.
It should have been Mr. W. S. Brown.
Mr. Clark was here list winter; says
he came in December and left in April
and finds he made a mistake in com
ing so late and returning so early. He
iU remain this season until June.
An election will be held on tho first
Saturday in December, being the
seventh day, in the lollowing terri
tory of Thomas county, viz: all that
portion of tbo county east of the
Ochlockonee river, and south of the
S. F. & W. Ry; the northern bound
ary of said tract being the northern
boundary of tho right of way of said
railway, and bounded aa follows: On
tho north by tho S. F. & W. Ry; on
the east by Brooks county; on the
south by the Florida line, and on the
west by the Ochlockonee river. All
free holders, who are legal voters in
Georgia, are entitled to vote at raid
election. The election eball bo held
under the rules governing elections
for the General Assembly, except that
the polls shall be closed at 3 p. m.
The election will be held at the vot
ing place in each precinct, except
that fraction of the Thomasville dis
trict; it will bo held at the court
house. Each voter shall have printed
or written on his ticket: “For Stock
Law,” or “Against Stock Law.”
Tho returns shall be made to the
Ordinary of Thomas county, who
shall canvass and consolidate the
same, and declare the result by publi
cation in the papers of raid county.
An Attractive Window.
Mr. F. N. Lohnstein, knowing that
nothing is so attractive as (he Almighty
Dollar (unless it is more dollars) has
fitted up his handsome show windows
with goods with the prices marked
with green backs. For instance a $20
suit is marked “this; suit only’’ and
then the greenback $20 bill is pinned
on. As a consequence his show win
dow is a very attractive one, being full
of fine goods, with greenbacks pinned
on them. This is an evidence that
Lohnstein is flush of money and able
to sell bargains.
Mr. Allie Pringle sends us from
New York, a new puzzle. It is some
thing like tho well remembered
“fifteen puzzle,” which racked the
brains of the public a few years since.
This puzzle consists of moveable
blocks, with the names of Harrison
and Blaine on them; and the point is
to get Blaine out of the cabinet. It
can be done—with the blocks—though
Mr. Harrison would doubtless find it
a difficult job to do, in fact. Remur
McIntyre ousted the premier in fifteen
minutes. Dr. Culpepper, however,
says he didn’t do it fair.
