Commencement is over and the gay and festive season of the year is past. | For nearly, a month the citizens of Athens and the visitors have been THE LAST GUN TO engaged with commencement exer cises and entertainments. Now comes the hot and sultry days of summer, the dullest portion of the year. While many Athenians will seek the cooler shades of the mom* tains or spend their vacation by the seaoahore let those who remain ring a change over the natural order of events and make this season one of the busiest times in the history of the Classic City.

The subject of divorces has claim ed the attention of the people from time immemorial. It is one of the aflairs of life in which there has been a regular and progressive evolution, that is, in the way it has been con sidered. Years ago it was looked upon as a crime ; to-day it is a com mon place occurrence. Considered thus in a civilized community, it is no wonder that its increase should be marked by the ease with which the divorce can be obtained. Fonr centuries ago the law of God was the law which guided our ancestors in this (breaking of the marriage tie. To day the most tri vial excase is presented and exag gerated to snit the plaintiff, and half the States in the country will readi ly give affidavit for the separation It is not then surprising that in such a largely populated country, where many hasty marriage contracts are made, and separation is so easily ob tained, that those desirous of divorce should increase in number, as the slightest offences are made grounds for the separation. Statistics uphold the fact that di vorce is on the increase throughout the country. In Georgia the-laws are far more stringent than in many other States ; therefore the laments* ble fact does not come under onr immediate notice. Why are divorces so frequent? We may enumerate three reasons : first, unfortunate and uncongenial marriages ; second, a desire to re marry, either for love or money ; and lastly, the fact that woman is daily becoming more and more inde pendent of man as she finds her vo cation in many of the walks of life which had heretofore been filled ouly by men. Such are the facts in the case, and it is to be regretted that a state of society has been reached where di vorce is made so easy that the most trivial excuse, often no more than harsh words, will be accepted as a plea for divorce, in direct opposition to the Mosaic law. THE TREND OF THE TIMES. The whole English nation is stir red to the "very centre concerning the scandal in which the Prince of Wales has just been detected. The good, honest people of that country are opening their eyes to the profligate habits of those in high places, and distrust and discontent are growing among them. They are just beginning to realize that in this enlightened nineteenth century no man or set of men, how ever high in station, rank, or office have the right to squander the reve nues obtained from a toiling people with which to support the govern ment. And it may be that other nations will some day follow suit. WHO WILL it BE? The democratic nominee for 1892 will be a man who in the estimation t of the largest number of democrats can effectively carry out the policy of the party as well as uphold its honor. Will it be Cleveland or Hill, or who will it be? One thing at least is certain, Cleveland will not get the vote of .New York. His views as publicly expressed on many subjects, have met with the strongest opposi tion on the part of the demoorats of the Empire State. Outside of the State his following has not dimin ished to any great extent, except in Englishmen are wont to be liberal a few localities where there seems to towards the royal family, but when ; be a disposition to boom Gov. Hill it comes to allowing the Prince of Wales to recklessly squander money aronnd the gaming table, while they sweat and toil in poverty, it passes beyond endurance. The public press of England is loud in its demonstration of the actions of the Prince ot Wales, and in this opinion is doubtless backed by^the people. The question as to whether Wales will ever mount the English throne is one of serious speculation* The people of England are not yet ready for overthrowing their system of government by any means, but it is to be gravely doubted whether the heir apparent to the throne will ever reign. - Queen Victoria is^advanced in years and it is only the question of a short time until Great Britain will pass under the rule of another sov» erign. There is a growing sentiment in England towards republicanism. While Mr. Gladstone is not an ad vocate of the establishment of a re public, still many of bis speeches, plans, and actions indicate a strong sentiment on bis part in that di» reotton. There can be no donbt but that the republican sentiment is gainingin England. Henry Grady never said a truer thing than this: “The trend of the times is with us. France, Brazil, these are our victories.” for the presidential nomination. Hill would get the solid vote of the New York delegation and of sev eral of the Western states unless a Western man should enter the race, and the chances are that this might be the case though there is no telle ing who it will be with any more certainty than that it would be a California man. Cleveland’s strength in the Sonth is greater than that of Hill, though endeavors are being made in many sections to reverse this order of af fairs, What success will be met with, only time can telL It is cer tain however that if Mr. Hill se cures the nomination he will do so, with a small Sonthern constituency. His following in the Northern and Western States muBt then be suf ficient to make up this deficit. Other “men have been spoken of tary prominently in connection with the nomination, bat the fight seems now to be between Cleveland and Hill. Hill has New York pretty solid, with the vote of other sec tions, while Cleveland may be pret ty sure of the solid South. company, go upon this mission which is of so great importance, not only to the company but to the whole State. There is nothing so important to a State as a well-trained militia, and these annual encampments are the best opportunties afforded for in struction and perfection in military science, as well as the practical part oi the soldier’s life. Let’s have a good repretentation of the Rifles at Chickamauga on the 29th, and those who aid in bringing about this result, will not regret it. Says the Agusia Chronicle: “The announcement that twelve out of twenty-nine of the graduating class of the University of Georgia had paid their own way through college, shows the spirit and fibre oi the boys now bet ug turned out of that institntiou. This, dm s not look much like A’hens wm a coi >*ge oi rich men’s sons. It proves iliat it is the Mecca of nMf-msde men, and that every man iu Georgia who has-the ability and determination can get an educa ion in Athens.” And this ain’t all Boys are edu cated at lire University to hccome good farmers, and that is just what what the Suite aud ihe South needs to-day—more educated farmers. According to the Brewers’ Hand book, there were 30 Oil 079 barrels of beer consumed in this country daring the year ending the first ot May, showing an excess ol 3,200,000 barrels over the consumption of the previous year. Ot thisumounl M!.^ sacbusetis is debited with about a million barrels.—Boston Herald. Georgia comes in for a goodly share; and is about on a par with Massachusetts. CHICKAMAUGA ON THE 29TH. The Rifles should receive all the eucourgement possible in this camp ing venture, as it is for their good and improvement. The merchants should consider the matter, and be glad to let any oi their employes, who belong to the Gold seems to be leaving this country rapidly. Between March 18th and June 4ih the aggregate ex port to European countries were $50,- 724,7i2. It is a mistake about Rua a aia receiving most of this gigantic supply into her coffers. The three leading European banks outside of Russia show au increase ol $59,118.- 850,which evidently means that they have received $8, 394138 in addition to that which has left the banks of the United States. Mr. Wanamaker has a pbenome* nally short memory. Sometimes he says one thing and later, another which is in the direct conflict with it. On April 2nd he recommended in a letter to Comptroller Lacy that the appointment oi a receiver for the Keystone bank be deferred a day. But his statement before the council committee in Philadelphia, declared emphatically that he was not in strumental in delaying it for one minute. Th* re seeme to be a large cat in the l ag. The abuse of the inteiview is one of the outrages of modern newspaper work. It is often done out of spite, as when some man will not talk to a reporter, be makes up a bog as inter view and publishes it as coming from the man purported to have been in terviewed. Such was the way in which Mr. Mills was treated by a well-known New York journal. This is one of the nuisances of journalism and should be abated. The latest society young woman to adopt the stage as a profession is Miss May Lloyd, of Atlanta, who recently made her debut in an Ohio town under the name of Helen Gor don. Miss Lloyd is an unusually pretty girl,possessing the advantages of a handsome neck and bast, finely moulded arms and a graceful, well- rounded figure. She is a girl of charming manner, and has been very popular in society.—N. Y. World. Chief Justice Fuller is said to dislike the sombre garb in which the Justices of the Supreme Bench array themselves. He prefers lighter hues in garments, and his street attire this summer comprises a white high hat, a light colored Prince Albert coat and light trousers. * Inasmuch as his wavy hair aud silky mustache are almost white Mr. Fuller presents a picturesque figure ou the streets.— New York World. Ozburn has about failed iu bis plea of insanity. His dodge was somewhat clever, but be has about given it up, and will bang the latter part of this month. George Wash ington will be bung on the fonrtb of July. This is a poor requital to the father ot his country, to be huug ou the anniversary of the great decla ration. It seems that after all, Commis sioner Raum is to be retained in of fice. He has been in a sort of a league with the sharpers, and the ease with which a pension claim can be gotten thtougb is enough to shock a lover of honest administration. The government seems to be to- day without protection from the fraudu-- lent pension claimers. The <* Coffin tack” will get in its deadly work. A 15-year old lad in Milledgeville bas been pronounced hopelessly blind as a result of smo king cigarettes. Take warning ! There is a poison in them more dead ly than the serpent’s bite or ihe ad der’s sting. The Chicago Herald puts it thus : The Godsfearing people of Great Britain have as bard a customer in the Prince of Wales as pious Amer icans have in Matt Quay. Albert Edward is tough and he does not seem to care a continental who knows it. The same is true of Quay. In New York the mercury stands at 95 to 98 in the shade, and there are small chances of relief from the terrible effects of the heat this sum - mer.
