A Worthy Negro.
As shewing what thrift and honesty
can accomplish, as well as an exam
ple for others to follow, we are pleased
to give the experience of a worthy
colored man of this connty, who is an
honor to his race, and wo are sorry to
say, an exception to the general rule.
Lewis Clark is an old fashion negro.
He is now about 48 years old, was
raised as a boy in the house, and gave
heed to the teachings of his old mas
ter, whom ho has never forgotten.
He is a member of the white chnrch,
a Hardshell Baptist, because his old
master was, and a good democrat for
tho same reason. Eighteen years ago
he purchased from Maj. Josiah
Everett, on credit, a mule, plow, gear,
back-band and plow stock; he has
that back-band and plow stock yet,
and one of the plows that he got with
it, also one of the traces, and he says
they will be good for a long time yet.
Last year he made 11 bales of cotton,
averaging 5101bs, this year he made
10 bales, averaging 5201bs. He
bought, some years ago, and has paid
for, 130 acres of land, and is buying
and paying for more each year. As
before said, he is an honest, indnstri-
ons negro; and is doing what all of his
race ought to do, and can do.
Elsewhere will he found a cordial
invitation from the committee of ex-
Confederates, to all ox-federal soldiers,
to participate in tho re union here
noxt Friday. .Southern soldiers ap
prociate tho true men of the north
those who fought for their section
and who now, that the war is over,
have quit fighting us. While they
have no use for the men who are still
trying to keep open tho wounds
made by war, they have a warm wel
come for the men who appreciate the
fact that tho war is over. We hope
every cx-federal soldier here will
turnout next Friday, and seo how
big-hearted, liberal and hospitable
the old ex-Confederates are. Twenty
five years ago they represented the
flower of the youth of this sunny land,
and to-day they represent its most
progressive, loyal citizens. Every
northern man will bo welcome around
the bountiful board next Friday. He
will be made to feel that he is among
friends—not among strangers.
In this connection wo may add that
it is expected and wished by the com
mittee, and our citizens generally,
that all visitors participate with us
on the occasion.
Wo will show them an old fashion
ed, old time barbecue, marked and
distinguished by a hospitality bound
ed only by our means.
Collier Pringle, a negro section
hand, was struck and knocked off
tho track at the 103$ mile, post, on
the Chattahoochee division, three-and-
a-half miles from town, yesterday
morning, by roadway train No. 39.
His leg was broken in one or two
places, besides other injuries, which,
though serious, are not necessarily
fatal. The suffering man was imme
diately brought to the city by the
roadway train, and was attended by
Dr. A. P. Taylor, the railroads sur
Squire Bullock has left an egg at
this office which is something of n
curiosity. It wiggles about, when
laid on a smooth surface, unless
placed in a certain position. In
other words it will only lie in one
position. Now a great many people
will lie in almost any position, but
this egg will not. The egg may not
bo a good one—investigations have
not been made that far—bat it is
better than some people, in that it
will only lie in one position.
Mr. J. M. Mayo has sold bis resi
dence in East End to Mrs. S. M.
