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. To Ex-Federal*. 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. 8erioualy Hurt. 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 geon. Medium Eggsaotly. 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. Beverly, of this county. She will oc cupy the cottage shortly. MUST 60!
