general tux. You must permit me,
as the book-keeper in this department
to thank you for dm handsome mans
ner oi.'the get-up’ cd your papers for
a final settlement. Were all done in
such a businesslike manner a great
deal of trouble and labor would be
saved tc tae. The showing you make
is an excellent one, and shows your
efficiency as an c fficer, and speaks in
terms of the highest, commendation
ol the work tterforraed by you as col
lector. and the solvency ot the people
ot your county. Out of the large
sum of $14,543.58—tax levied in
your county for slate purposes—only
$43.59 returned as insolv nt, is some
thing unparalleled, in tho collection
of taxes in your county , or at least
since my connection «ith this office,
dating fn m 1976. Hoping you may
keep the office as. long as you want
to, I am yours,

A RAILROAD BOOM.
A GERMAN VETBRAN.
The railroad from Athena to Jug
Tavern is now a fixed fact, if our city
will do its duty. Within the past
week over half enough money baa
been promised to grade and cross-tie
the line, and when that is done Mr.
Wadley will put on the iron and
equipments. A prominent merchant of
our city says he will be one of twenty-
five men to give $1,000, and three per
son’s present stepped up and an
nounced themselves ready to make a
like contribution. One gentleman
was heard to a*Jr he would give $5,000,
and make it $10,000, If necessary. $25,-
000 is all required, and we feel no
doubt but what the sum will be sub
scribed in a very few days. Every one
knows that this road is essential to
our city’s prosperity. If it is not built
we will lose a large strip of our best
trade. Atlanta is reaching out in
every direction, grasping territory
that legitimately belongs to Athens.
By building this short line we will
not only save a section that we now
have, but recover lost ground. Let us
not longer stop to cogitate over this
road. Gentlemen now have the mat
ter in hand who know no such word as
We can also have that Jefferson
road, at a small cost.

A LAND GRANT.
“Green Ponds,” near the Madison and

grants in Jackson and Elbert counties.

safe. Only last week the Watchman

A merchant who has just returned
from Jefferson says the people are very’
much exercised there over the contem
plated railroad to Jug Tavern, and says
if Athens don’t come there she will lose
the trade of that place. There will
eventually be a railroad built to Jeffer
son, but our people cannot afford to ig
nore Jug Tavern.
The other day a countrymen came to
our post office, and when the genial Dr.
Orr framed his cadaverous phiz in the
window the fellow asked:
“Beyour name Mat Davis?"
Thunderation! No!” exclaimed the
Doctor, spitting on his hands and roll
ing np his sleeves.
“Mont your name be Speer then?”
was the humble conundrum.
“Not by about 650 miles, sir!” shouted
the P. M., turning turkey red in the face,
and dashing bolts of lightning from his
eyes at the querist.
“Well, mister, ain’t Speer and Davis
the same man? Somehow the folks
’round in our deestrlct liev got them
mixed up together and can’t tell wheth-
Davis appointed Speer to Congress;
Speer Davis to the post office; or Con
gress the post office to Speer; or Speer
Congress to Davis; or the post office
Speer to Davis; or whether Davis ia
Congress and Speer in the post office; or
Speer in Congress and Davis in the post
office; or whether they are both one man
and hold two offices; or whether they are
two offices and hold one man; or wheth-
tliey spell tlielr name with a hyphen,
Speer-Davis; or Davis-Speer. So I
loud I’d oome In to-day and see if I
couldn’t get the straight of the tiling.
THE GROWTH Or ATHENS.
Col. Gabe Nash, of Madison county,
is the oldest lawyer in Georgia, having
been born in 1709. The Colonel says he
can remember when Athens had but one
store kept by Mr. Stevens Thomas, and
it stood on the present side of Deupree
Hall. Sometime after Mr. Eliznr New
ton opened an opposition store, and
every one predicted his fai’me on account
of crowding the business of Athens.

These feathered pests are about ta
king Athens by storm. They first ap
peared here about three years ago, and
no one knows from whence they
came. These sparrows nre never seen
in the country, but live in cities and
build their nests around the cornices
and finishings of buildings. Hun
dreds of them inhabit the ivey Ivey in
the Campus, and breed under the
eave9 of the college, while another
large army has taken up its headquar
ters at the Insurance building, and ev
ery nook and corner of the fancy work
around the building is filled with
nests. They lay and hatch all the
year round, and so multiply rapidly.
They are a game little bird, too, and
have desperate fights every day.
NEW METHODIST CHURCH.

which time the Methodists will use the
court bonse until the church' is complet
ed. The court house wi.l be the most
suitable substitute on account of its lo
cation and its being large and Ary.
The repairs will most probably be- com
pleted by the first of October.

Last Thursday we got Sheriff Weir
to show us the manner i:i which Tom
Fisher and John Nolan had escaped
from the Clarke county jail. It seems
that for years It has been the custom
to allow the prisoners liberty of the
passage daring the day, which waa
considered perfectly safe, they being
locked in cells at night. Now the bell
doors are hung on hinges, so that it is
an easy matter to lift them off. This
the two men did, and by using the
hasp as a lever easily wrenched out
the staple. This accomplished it was
wedged back, so that no one could see
the trick. As usual that night Mr.
Weir locked them in, also fastening
down the lever bolts, worked from
without. It seems that about 12 o’clock
when all was quiet, one of the prison
ers ran his arm through the bars in
the door, pushed back the bolt, when
they easily gained the ^Assage. Some
time since another prisoner had es
caped by filing ont one of the iron
bars that leads into the main entry.
This had been replaced with a sham
made from a piece of gas-pipe, which
was easily removed, and by a tight
squeeze the two men passed through.
This work had been inspected by sev
eral grand juries and pronounoed
safe. The men then entered the loft
through the. trap-door, and feeling
around in the dark discovered the
hole that leads to the roof and passed
through. They then mn^e a rope of
their blankets, and cutting the tin
from an old stove-hole, raised a plank
and fastened their blanketeranp. It
was an easy matter then toHPscend
and scale the wall. Sheriff Mreir is in
no way to blame, as he used every
precaution that man could. He has
offered a reward of $25 each for their
arrest, and if capture is possible John
Weir will get the men.
