Cell's"Royal Marionettes. The Bcll-Ellis combination com menced a week’s engagement at the Academy of Music last, evening, the audience being not only large, but well pleased. The entertainment was varied and entertaining, and double worth the price of admission. Prof. Ellis, the magician, performed some wonderful foals and was loudly ap plauded, as was the Royal Marion etie.-. Tho Japanese juggler was almost exceptional, and the chair balancer was entirely so. The original Magil ton aud his enchanted butterflies formed an interesting feature of the entertainment, and the pantomine on- tit'ed “Fun in the Moon.” was excep tionally amusing. Upon tho whole the show was a good one, aud should he seen to-night by all. A large -lumber ot presents were given away.—Norfolk Virginian. A Shame. The. Atlanta Constitution says that: “A commission merchant stood in his door a few days ago checking off an invoice of turnips and rutabagas from Indiana. ‘It is a shame,’ho lcinark- ed, ‘that I have to send to Indiana for these things, when right here within sight of Atlanta they can he cultivated to a degree of perfection uot excelled anywhere else on earth. Fulton county alone cotihl raise enough of them to furnish the whole South, hut it don’t do it, and conse quently we have to send oil for them.’ There is a lesson iu this that the farmc’-s of Georgia ought to profit by, 4,000 barrels of rutabagas come to Atlanta every year, worth 81.50 per barrel, and ns it is with Atlanta so must it he, in proportion, with every other city in Georgia.” A TiM38-E.ntku' , h , sr reporter has seen a turnip grown by Mrs. Soph- ronia Mitchell that weighed 04 pounds, and with a circumference of 21 inches. Why cannot Thomas county undertake to supply the state with rutabagas aud turnips. We have the soil, and the specimen infer red to above, shows that it can he done. Albany Votes no Bonds. Albany had an election Monday to decide whether tho city should issue bonds to raise money to give the city a sewerage system. The city voted no bonds, and our sister must continue to trust to surface sewerage to keep the city clean and healthy.
