Painful Operation But the Patient

The Elberton Star bays: For some
time oar young friend, Hr. Jim W.
Wilhite, who is one of the most active
as well as popular clerks in Elberton,
has been suffering with a bunion on one
of his feet. It was lanoed, bnt it gtew
worse, until the other day. Hr. Wilhite,
who has been with bis father's family
Athens, sent for Dr. B. F. Smith,
Elberton, to come to see him.
Dr. Smith went up to Athens last Sat
urday night and amputated a part of
the foot. The doctor was again to see
Hr. Wilhite Tuesday night lass, and re
ports him as doing well. -
It goes hard with Jim, as he is of a
vivacious temperament, to have to stay
doors, and be is very much missed by
the firm for which he works, Messrs.
Gairdner, Arnold & Co., as well as his
many friends here. ,
We trust he will soon recover and
again take his place at his old post.

We can ejneeive of nothing more attrac

spirit of kindness. Certainly nothing em
bellishes humanity as the practice of this
virtue; a sentiment so genial and so excel

thought and act of our lives. The prin

tianity, and in nootln-r jrersonsdo we find
it more happily exemplified than in the
life of onr Saviour, who while on earth
“went about doing good.” And how true

COTTON CROP REPORTS
Gathered from Different Sections of the
Vicksburg. Oct. 8.—An average crop
of cotton appears to be assured, bnt no
more. The bottom crop is remarkably
good, the middle very short, the top
orop generally absent. The staple is of
fine quality and very dean. September
local receipts are the largest on record.
This applies to . Mississippi and North
Louisiana, whose crop condition shows
no mateiinl variation. The bulk of the
crop brought in sight has come from
the uplands, where picking will be fin
iehed in thirty days or less.
Mobile, Dot. 8.—The uniform tenor
of cotton reports this week can be sum
maryized in the answer of a cotton fac
tor: "The crop of the Mobile
du-trict is nearly made. It will show a
decrease of from last year of quite 20
per cent. It will be marketed unusu
ally early—from six weeks to two
months earlier than last year."

The Crop in Texas.
Galveston, Oct. 3.—The rains daring
the past seven days have been very ben
eficial, and prospects are for a larger
vield of cotton than at the last report.
The top crop is growing and booming
in some sections where the plant had
apparently stopped growing one month
ago. Excessive rains have injured cot
ton in bnt few localities. Cotton pick
ing is well advanced, although retarded
to some extent by rains. More rain is
needed over the northwestern portion
of the state for foil plowing.
Boll Crop to North Arkansas
Batesvillf. Oct 1.—There has been
bnt little change in the condition of the
cotton crop since the last report. Light
showers of rain a week Ago did no good
and but little harm to the crop. North
Arkansas will make bnt half a cron as
compared with last year. The staple is
being gathered nicely and is very good.

For daw the river had been rising.
The levees above were gone for miles
and miles, and the mad waters bad
swept over the banks, carrying fortunes
and even ljvee before them. On one of
the big plantations opposite Shreveport
every effort was being made to with
stand the flood Hands were collected
from every cabin and recruited from all
the adjoining places to strengthen the
water soaked levees, which shook on the
presume of a man’s foot.
It was almost dnsk. but the men who
had not rested for days worked with
the strength of fresh vigor as the voice
of Tom Aiken, the planter, directed
them and cheered them on to the task
which seemed so hopeless as the water
crept steadily und steadily higher. Bnt
for the fart that every one was busy
with his work, a little negro boy. who
suddenly dropped his spade and stole;
away betwixt the wheels of the big sand
wagon, might have been seen as he scur
ried away around the carve in the em
He ran quickly along for full a quar
ter of a mile without looking back, down
the narrow, slippery road that was' left
between the cotton rows and the levee.
The boy slackened his psce when he be
came convinced that no one was in pur
suit of him. and as he did so he heard
the loud, cheery voice of Tom Aiken
back at the break. “All work together,
boysl" . .
“Huh? All work together," the boy
said. “Yessir, bnt yon bet dis here nig

In his eagfernees to reach the coveted
goal the little negro quickened his pace
again. It was now almost dark, bnt his
eyes bad grown accustomed to the
gloom. He conld see the curving line of
the levee, which seemed to tremble with
a premonition of its own inadequacy.
He conld see all the water pools in the
road. Bis little legs had measured per
haps a mile more when the ominous roar
of the river made him stop aud peer over
the levee at the rnshing waters.
As he scrambled np the slippery bank
a clod of loosened earth fell heavily into
the road below, and through the orifice
which it left a little stream of mnddy
water trickled. The boy caught his
breath quickly when the water run over
“LordyU he exclaimed. “Dere’s gwine
to be a break right hero. Lordyl Lordyl
what i gwine do?"
He stopped to reconsider. There was
still another mile before he conld reach
the Point, and he knew there were only
a few old women in the cabins there,
and he conld get no help from that
source. It was more than a mile bock
to where the men were working, and he
was afraid to show himself there after
having run a wav. Besides there was
not a moment to lose. What was to be
done 'must be done at once. The boy
knew that a great responsibility rested
npon him. If the little opening were
not stopped immediately it was only a
question of a few moments before the
whole levee would be swept away.
He stood np and looked about him.
There was no one in sight Re thought
he might find a bag of sand dropped by
a passing wagon, bnt there was none.
With sadden purpose be turned and sat
down over the little crevice through
which the water came. The soft earth
yielded to his weight, and with his handB
and feet he pressed it abont him, patting
it to make it firm.
The difficulty had been solved without
his volition almost. It was only after it
was done that he thought of the conse
quences. He calculated in hia unreason
ing way that it was 8 o’clock. How long
would he have to remain there? For
anght he knew till morning. He began
to suffer by and by from his cramped
position, but he dared not move even
the least bit lest the crevice would open
He conld not tell how time passed.
Every minute seemed an hoar. He could
not hear the shouts of the men below.
There was only now and then the hoot of
an owl rising above the roar of the water,
or the swish as a clod of earth was
sacked into the mad current. He wished
he had not run away from his work..
He began to get drowsy; his limbs
were almost nmnb. . He wondered what
would become of him if he should go to
sleep. If the waters should rise np over
the levee and drown him and ruin the
cotton, would it make any difference
then that he had tried to save ^t? He
was inadequate to the problem, the like
of which has puzzled graver heads than

Aiken conld see the little tongues o!

If the boat did not torn she would send
