I as Georgia is concerned. We refer to the plan looking to the establishment of closer relations between the University and the com- mon schools of the State. The State University is really nothing more than a part of the com mon school system of Georgia. The schools depend upon the University for advanced teachers and the Uni* versity in turn depends upon the schools for pupils. In ihis way the system of higher education is made complete, the University infusing it into the common schools and the schools giving it back to the Uni versity, ANNUAL MEETING OF THE STOCKHOLDERS OF THE ALLIANCE WAREHOUSE.

F. Pope, on yes terday morning at ten o’clock in the court house. It was a meeting of the stockholders and a full quorum was present. The usual order of business was main tained, and the first thing was the read ing of the reports of the different committees and sub-committee, all of which were adopted. The reports were up to usual standard and the years showing is most satisfactory. The work of the ware house has been up to the usual stand ard and everything points to a bright and prosperous year. The same officers who have held their positions for the past year were ail re-elected. Mr. A. F. Pope still holds the office of president, and Mr. Dawson Williams that of Secre tary. After the election of officers the fol lowing resolution was introduced: Resolved, That we, the stockholders of the Farmers’ Alliance Warehouse, of Athens, Ga., this day assembled, stand ready to heartily co-operate by contri butions or otherwise, with the Clarke County Alliance, the city or other au thorities of Athens, Ga., in making the ICth day of July a grand success, the day fixed by the National Alliance for a grand Alliance rally at said city. This resolution is a good- and timely one and will be well taken. The Alli ance is on the right track, as the work of the past year has shown, and the fu ture appears for it bright and prosper ous. On yesterday afternoon at half past three o’clock the Board of directors of the warehouse met at the Alliance ware house office, and many matters of im portance to the stockholders were brought up for discussion. The work of the year has been decidedly satisfac tory in every respect.

Putting down steel rails. That is what will be done on the Northeastern in a few days. A Banner reporter met Supt. Ham-' mond of tbe Northeastern yesterday and had a talk with him concerning the condition of that road and what was to be done with it. “Well,” said Mr. Hammond, “you may say that steel rails will be laid along the entire length of the North eastern road, and the work will begin in a few days. “The ra Is. have been ordered and 1 expect them to arrive tomorrow. When ever they get here I will at once put a section of hands to work and have them laid on to Lula J uiiction. “You may say that when thfc work is finished that the Northeastern road will be in as good condition as any road in Georgia.” “Will you connect with the Macon & Northern and run a through schedule?” “Yes,” said Mr. Hammond, “c «nnec- tion will be made with the Macon and Norihcrn and the through train will be put on in a few days between Lula and Albany. That trip will be made in one day, leaving Lula in the early morn ing.” Thus ic will be seen that Athens will soon have better railroad facilities than ever and that the Northeastern wilLbe put in a first class condition.

I have been re tired from politics for several yeais yet on three different occasions [ have rendered assistance, and no man can come to me and request me to explain how I could do a thing of that sort after I had retired. Nor does it hold good that a man after having form ed a resolution, may not under convic tion be allowed to change, and I will say jtist here, after having given full notice to the antis (as I shall' call them, for that is their work, destruction by b&r-roomB), that Icould not go actively into the campaign as I did not feel able; but now, since last Sunday, I feel more like laying aside all work and going home and say, “Son, give me my boots,” “Wife, give me your prayers,” and then facing those gentlemen who publish to tne world their determina tion to tear down the structure which now protects the men, women and children from the rav ages of a bar room without one promise as to what will be built in its stead,or if they mean to say (and I would like for them to answer) that this demon, tbe bar room, shall be turned looee on Ath ens and its chief votaries shall be our "rulers.

[Special]— There is something like a crisis at this time of tbe affairs of the State Agricul tural society, or perhaps, more properly speaking, in the affairs of the State Frir. The differences between the Fair authorities and city council of Macon have been aired in the press. On the 10th the [premium committee met at Macon and after considering all the questions at tissue, without the dis senting vote decided to discontinue preparations for the fair at Macon and remanded the entire matter to tbe ox ecutive committee. To-day Presideot Waddell has issued a letter to the mem bers of that committee. In his letter he sets forth that other expositions have made preparations to the State Fair but that he doesn’t think be has a right to act unless the executive committee gives him the specific right. In order therefore, to ascertain tbe mind of the committ *e, President Waddell asks each Shall the entire executive committee be called together at an early date to consider the difference, between the society and Macon, or shall action be King of Medicines Scrofulous Humor—A Cure" “ Almost Miraculous « When I was 14 years ot age I had a severe attack of rheumatism, and after I recovered had to go on crutches. A year later, scrofula, In the form of white swellings, appeared on various parts of my body, and for 11 years I was an Invalid, being Confined to my bed years. In that time ten or eleven sores ap peared and broke, causing mo great pain and suffering. I feared I never should get well. “ Early In 1SSGI went to Chicago to visit a sister, but was confined to my bed most of tho time I was there. In July I read a book, ‘ A Day with a Circus,’ hi which were statements of cures by Hood’s Sarsaparilla. I was so im pressed with the success of this medicine that I decided to try it. To my great gratification the sores soon decreased, add I began to feel' better and in a short time I was up and cut of doors. I continued to take Hood’s Sar saparilla for about a year, when, having used six bottles, I had become so fully released from the disease that I went to work for the Flint & Walling Mfg. Co., and since then HAVE NOT LOST A,SINGLE DAT on account of sickness. I believo the disease Is expelled from my system, I always feel well, am in good spirits and have a good appetite. I am now 27 years of age andean walk as well as any one, except that one limb is a little shorter than the other, owing to the loss, of hone, and the sores formerly on my right leg.
