1IOX. \V. H. MATTOX, OF ELBERT.
The coiuluct of Col. Mattox, op
posing candidate tor congress in
this district to Mr. Reese, in declin
ing, during the absence ot that gen
tleman in Washington, to take ad
vantage of the same and by attend
ing the spring courts to build up
his political strength, must secure
for U nt O' ■ i"-peel an.! admire
of the p e. It .s alm-v -r
preccdci t. ii act ol gem r
fairness, 'nieiy. if ever, v. i' i is . i.
political lile. When Mr. Kie-i wa«
at home Col. Mattax met him at
every court, and used all nonoiable
means to advance his claims; but as
soon as his opponent returns to
congress, in the discharge of his
duty. Col. Mattox retires to his
farm in Elbert, and declines to take
advantage of the open field left him.
This gentleman is well aware of
the tact that his neglect to atter.il
the courts now in session in the dis
trict loses him a golden opportuni
ty, hut his sense of fairness and
justice is so acute, that he would
scorn to utilize this advantage over
an opponent. The people have not
even heard the name of Mattox
mentioned since Mr. Reese re
turned to Washington, for he has
heen hard at work on his farm, and
retired from the race until his op
ponent can meet him on equal
grounds. While this may seem
sin prising to many, those who know
Col. Mattox intimately will Tell you
it is characteristic of the man. If
by taking an undue advantage of
Mr. Ree-c this gentleman knew that
he could secure a seat in congress
he would scorn to do so. The edi
tor of this paper has known Wil
liam 11. Mattox since our boyhood,
and his whole life has been in keep
ing with his generous conduct to
ward Mr. Reese. While Col. Mat
tox is as brave a man as ever lived—
for not a more gallant soldier fol
lowed the banner of the Lost Cause
—and tears not to meet any man
face to face, on the rostrum or else
where, be was never known to of
fend a man behind his back, ortakc
an undue advantage of an enemy.
Wat. H. Mattox, while a practical
fai mer, who has devoted all of his
life to the calling, at the same time
is a man of temarkahle intellect, and
in debate or argument can hold his
own with the most noted orators
and statesmen ot the day. There
is one trait that we particularly ad
mire in C i. Mattox—his feaih -
candor ti can alwa.- ;f
him his n on any i
asking, amt that in lango..,,..
as emphatic as it is convinc
ing. He is a cautious and
conservative man, who alwav
weighs every question, and when
hi' mind is once formed, he is gen
erally right. No man in Geor
gia has clone more for the demo
cratic party than Col. Mattox, and
to him, in a great measure, is due
the tact that Elbert county never
accepted the yoke of radicalism.
Whenever called upon by his sta'e,
his people or his party, he instantly
responded, and old Georgia never
had a truer, a purer or more valliant
son. You may take Col. Mattox’s
whole life, both private and public,
and you will find it without blot or
blemish. His present course, in de
clining to take the field against Mr.
Reese during his absence, is in full
keeping with the man. As to his abil
ity, the coming summer, when his
opponent returns home, Col. Mat
tox will doubtless challenge Mr.
Reese to joint discussion, when the
people will find that it Elbert's can
didate is an humble tiller of the soil,
and holds the life of a farmer as the
highest and noblest calling on earth
—having declined flattering offers
to quit it—that at the same lime he
is the peer of any man in Georgia,
it matters not what he his profes
sion or advantages, when it comes
to a piactical, sensible discussion of
all the living issues ol the day.
Col. Mattox is a man
who sprung from the people,
he owes his allegiance to the peo
pie, and to them will he look for
recognition. He is a man of fine
education—having graduated at the
State University—and his mind has
been kept well stored ever since. As
to Col. Matto.'s chances for the no
mination,we cannot say. The fact of
his being a farmer will be used
against him with effect, for the
public has gotten to believe that
no man, unless he be a lawyer or
professional and lives in an incor
porated town, can properly repr
sent them But w he 1 F:*u:v
Mattox is 'lend upon t :•» ■' ,
and the charade? of that gei ; in
is carefully weighed, we think n.at
this drawback will, in measure, be
overlooked. We do not wish this
editorial to be construed into any
committal on the part of the Ban
ner-Watchman in the pending con
gressional campaign in this district,
for we do not know that it would
be right, where a 1 the candidates
are democrats, for our paper to take
sides in advance of the action of
the convention, although, of course,
the editor reserves the right to in
dividually espouse the cause of the
candidate he sees fit. Our only
reason for penning this article to
call the attention of the people of
Ais district to an unparalleled dis
play of fairness and generosity, and
to do justice to a personal friend
and a gentleman whom we hold in
very high esteem.
ices this fact, and when some little
stripling chances to get control of a
paper, the first thing he does is to
grind out a column of advice to the
tillers of the soil. Now, we don't
propose to undertake any such task,
but we do want to give our farmer
friends a good, plain chat on the
over-production of cotton, and
prove to them that unless they re
duce the yield ol the fleecy staple
fully 25 per cent., that the next crop
will no» bring more than 7^ cents,
and you know that it costs more
than this for the South to taise cot
ton. As is a well know.n fact, there
is a band of speculators in New
York city who not only control the
cotton crop after it is made, but ac-
1 ■! ■'!.• fixes the price twelve months
■ - dvance, and that, too, before a
1 ow is run or a seed put in the
.round. They are complete mas
ters of the situation, and have it in
their power to shape the cotton
narket as suits their onn
ends. These speculators have
already gone to work on the next
cotton crop, and *et the following
figures, which are as unalterable as
the laws of the the Medes and the
Persians. The cotton futures for the
months of October, November and
December, 1SS6. and January, 18S7,
are quoted in New York at from
89010875, according to months.
This means no? exceeding Sj cents
for middling cotton in New York,
or »Jc. at the principal cotton ship
ping ports of the South, including
such shipping ports as New Or
leans. Charleston, Savannah, Mo
bile, Galveston and Memphis. Mid
dling cotton at these cities selling
for bj cents means not more than
7} to the planter, who must pay-
freight, insurance and the regular
commission charges, which gener
ally average from ^ to one cent per
.pound. Now, the planter may-
squirm under this as much as he
chooses, but the prices fixed in the
sale of futures must be met, for at
these figures have the buyers in
New York arranged their trades,
and the producer will L-e forced to
come to their terms. There
is no need talking about reducing
the area planted in cotton, for there
is no concert of action among plant
ers. So the question narrows it
self down to this: Can the far
mers in this section ot Georgia
afford to produce their next crop of
cotton at 7J cents? If there is any
money in that price, we advise you
to plant a full crop. If it costs you
more than 7J cents, it will be finan
cial suicide on the part of farmers
to depend on their cotton crop, for
7J cents per pound is the last mill
that they will receive for
it. The fiat has gone forth
from the regulators of prices
in New York, and these men have
me means and the power to force
-bin own terms. Farmers who
•\e made the test tell us that they
can't raise cotton tor less than nine
i cents per pound, with even a shade
of profit. If this be true, a planter
bad better sit the whole year with
lolded arms than to grow cotton at
a loss of #6 per bale. The truth is,
the day will soon be oil us when the
South must look to some other crop
than cotton for her ready money.
VVe can’t compete with the cheap
labor ot India, and Eastern cotton
is making (earful inroads into pri
ces. If such a thing were possible,
—by concert of action among farm
ers—that the production of cotton
in the Southern States could be re
duced to 4,000,000 bales, then a re
munerative price could be had; but
this, we fear, will never be done.
The only thing left for our farmers
to do is to watch the sale of futures
in New York for a year ahead, and
when they are fixed at a price that
leaves the planter no profit, to sow
his cotton fields in grain and other
crops. By this means, if other sec-
Utah wants to be a state.

and natural gas in Tennessee, but

1 Teething. Tor rale t*
that the wily Arab of the desert steal* upon
his prey with all the silent cunning of the
American Indian. As tho stars of night
began to pole before tbo advance of dawn
he felt like one reprieved. While be
watched, tho enemy had. for once, seemed
to sleep. Daylight would bring a continua
tion of the march, an.i every hour would
witness a skirmish, but even a battle does
not unnerve a man like standing videtta on
a lone and dangerous post
What! Has he become blind? Daylight
now covers the desert, and the vidette is
looking toward the camp of the night
There is no camp. At midnight he left 800
of his comrades. This morning thnre is no
sign of Ufe. He looks to the right bat there
is no vidette. He looks to tho left—no liv
ing thing meets his eyes.
He stands and peers and stares and blinks.
Is he awake! If so, Ls be blind! Has the
night played some strange trick on him in
this laud of strange things and strange
He moves toward the spot where the
night halt was made, but be advances
slowly and cautioudy, and he hesitates now
and then as if to reason with himself. Ah!
He is neither blind or daft. Here is a cap—
there is a bolt—here a rope—there a sack, to
prove that the camp had been here. H re
are tho tracks of men and camels, there a
broad trail leading away to the south.
In the stillness of night a messenger had
come to the little band, ordering an instant
change of march. Quietly and without
alarm the men had been turned out, the
beasts made ready, and the videttes called
in. All but one! In the hurry and the dark
ness he had been overlooked!
Leaning on his carbine and looking over
the trail left to show the change of march,
the soldier reasoned it all out. His com
mand had been gone for hours. He was
alone and on foot. Overtake them! He
smiled grimly at the thought The sun and
sand and thirst of Egypt were as deadly
enemies as the spears and bullets of tho
Arabs. He bad neither food nor water. A
hundred miles of burning sands and hot
winds lay between him and a blade of glass
—a single drop of water. •
The soldier turned to survey the desert
plain. To the east; nothing but sand; to
the north, nothing but sand; to the west
nothing but sand; to the fcouth—ah I He
Htraightenoi up, shaded his eyes with bis
hand, and for a long minute continued his
gore, then he let his arm fall. A score of
Arsbs were riding down upon him.
Without undue baste—with the dignity
befitting an cli veteran—the soldier took
from h\s breast and pinned to his coat a
m«dal. Upon its bright side were the words:
The Boer War.” He pinned on another
which said: “For Services in Zululand.”
There was a third—a fourth—a fifth. In his
twenty years of soldier life the old man bad
a thou-and times been >i target for bullets.
This was his last campaign. Death was
riding down up^n him. but he would die as
a soldier-as a British soldier.
When the savage horsemen were half a
mile away they halted. The old soldier was
ready and waiting. There was* no thought
of taking him prisoner—no thought of sur
render. There was a moment for consulta
tion, and the bunch of horsemen deployed
in line and advanced at a gallop.
Steady, now! Crack! Crack! Crack
Two horsemen tumbled from their saddles—
a third reeled about in his seat like a man
mortally hit. Before another shot could be
fired the murderous lances drank blood and
the old soldier lay dead.
On the hot sands, his face upturnod to his
foes, and his medals shining as never before
morning sun, lay the old man, dead.
And then, not by the hands of friends—not
by the hands of comrades—a sixth medal
was placed upon his brawny breast It was
not of gold or silver, but something ot more
priceless value. It was- the words of an

Wc to-day reproduce a blood-
and-thunder article from the Car-
tersville Courant, (Dr. Ftlion’s pa
per,) containing the most horrible
stories about Col. Smith’s convict
camp, in Oglethorpe county. We
have no idea that there is one word
of truth in the letter, and it is hut a
teeblc attempt on the part of the
old Doctor to attract public atten
tion to himself, with an eye to the
gubernatorial seat. About once a
year these slanders on Col. Smith
arc s'arted, hut when investigated
are found to he lies made of whole
cloth. As any of his neighbors will
testify, this gentleman is as kind to
his convicts 3s it is possible to be
and their very appearance will
brand as false any story ot cruel
: a atment. Col. Smith is not a man
• : under such slanders as that
.■fished by the Courant, and we
predict that the fur will fly from the
author of the article as soon as his
name is discovered.
A WORD TO COTTON GROWERS.
We know that newspaper advice
is thrown away on planters, and
they are about halt way right, too,

thoroughly incompetent to discuss
agriculture as a farmer would be to
take charge ot a printing office. But
it seems that the editor never real*

poisons from the system, enriches and renews
the blood, and restores Us vitalizing power.

Lawrence Barrett’* Explanation*
[Chicago Mail Interview.]
Very early in my career as an actor I de
cided that 1 must not give to my friends the
hours which my profession demanded. I
felt that were 1 to become popular socially
it would be at the risk of becoming unpopu
lar professionally sooner or later. As a re
sult of this decision I have never accepted
invitations to or assisted in midnight ban
quets, nor have 1, except on rare occasions,
taken part in after-performance suppers.
During my recent engagement iu London,
where club life, midnight banquets, and
break-of-day gatherings are unusually pop
ular. 1 impaired my business and my repu
tation by invariably and emphatically, al
though of courso always respectfully, de
clining thi* species of hospitality. In Lon
don the toad to success for literary, political,
or theatrical people leads through the club.
I could not conscientiously take that road,
and my visit was practically a failure. In
this country the great majority of newspa
per writers are to be met witn, socially at
least, in the small hours of the night. My
rule has been to make my way direct from
the dressing-room to the bed-room, and
whatever success I have secured in my pro-
has often proved very painful to me.

•I wish to express my appreciation of. the
valuable qualities of
Ayers Cherry Pectoral
as a cough remedy.
“ While with Churchill's army, Just before
Jie battle of Vicksburg, I contracted a so-
vere cold, which terminated in a dangerous
cough. 1 found no relief till on our march
we came to a country store, where, on asking
tor some remedy, 1 was urged to try Ayer’s
“I did so, and was rapidly cured. Sines
then I have kept the Pectoral constantly by
me, for family nse, and I have found it to b«
ar. invaluable remedy for throat and lung
diseases. J. W. Whitley."
Thousands of testimonials certify to the
prompt cure of all bronchial and lung
affections, by the use of Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. Being very palatable, the young
est children take it readily. —n
