Such notification Is the only means of knowing of the existence of any cause for complaint and will be- appreciated accordingly. and very little to regret. Closing hi9 communication, “M. L.” urges Atlantians to be “ square and honest” in this matter. 'We hope they will, because if At lanta people evor succeed in being as square and Lmest” in the solution of this hard problem as the people of Athens have been, one thing is cer tain, all such croakers as “ M. L.” will be buBbed forever, and the Gate City will never afterwards be heard making a rustle of discontent in this busy world. “ *-ET US BE SQUARE AND HONEST.” A communication in the Atlanta Journal signed “M L.” attracts our attention, bearing as it does npon the Athens dispensary. The Journal’s correspondent “M. L.”is a prohibitionist—that's evi dent. He is trying to get Atlanta to do away with her bar-rooms and urges that no half-way ground like that of a dispensary be taken by the voters of the Gate City. This is all very well, if M. L. chooses to think so. Nobody will deny him the righ express bis opinion on a matter in this general way, but he ought to let his expressions stop there. He has no right to throw sarcasm and abase upon the good people of Ath* ene as he does in his communica* tion. We quote a sample paragraph from his communication as follows : When the Athens dispensary bar room was first opened they could nol get liquor enough to supply the de- mand, bnt recently it was stated as a fact that it was in fine working or der, that it required three bar—keepi era to wait on the castomers, and that they sell froin three to five hun dred bottles a day. It is thought that Athens will pay half of her city taxes with the $40,000 she expecis to make this year by her dispensary bar-room attachment to her probibi tion (?) government. We felt no special objection to this utterance, because in the light of the circumstances npon which the dis pensary was established we find nothing wrong in the facts stated so sarcastically above. Bnt we do find cause for complaint at the following paragraph from the Journal’s cor respondent: Any and everybody in Athens can get liquor at this bar-room unless be is a minor or a student at the Uni versity. The women can get it, too, unless they are classed among the nobodies. Atlanta with her high li cense is not so liberal, and it is con- sideicd respectable to drink from a dispensary bar-room, as the dispen sers are among the most cultured and refined citizens of the Classic City, and like those in Barnesville, will continue to grow in popularity. Of course the minora of Athens and the students of the University wil not be tried and tempted by any oi those bibulous citizens, both male and female, and Athens is now tbi proper place for the youth of Geor gia to imbibe correct ideas of right living aud be trained up without de ceit. It has, however, been suggest ed that we may expect a plentiful crop oi Pecksniffs and Uriah Heeps to spring from a place which has a S robibition government, dominated y a dispensary bar room, which sells from three to five hundred bot tles a day to bring in a revenue for that city. LARRY GANTT TARRtD I It sounds funny to say that genial Larry Gantt has been tarred, bnt be tells it with bis own pen. Not tarred for a coating of feathers—of course not. Tarred and turpentined by the doctor as a remedy for his cold. Here’s the way Larry writes about bis sickness: Our friends have been exceedingly kind, both in Athens and Atlanta. Eaoh one who has visited us brought not only words of sympathy, but -a prescription of his or her own mann- factory. Had we swallowed oner, tenth of the decoctions prescribed for us, we would have to take out a drug store license for onr stomach, and in Athens labor nnder the subn picion of running a blind tiger at tachment. The most popular re ceipt seemed to be spirits of turpen tine. We were rubbed with turpen tine, poalticed with turpentine, fed turpentine with our dinner, made to eat it on sugar, and even required to smoke lightwood splinters. Our sys tern became so thoroughly saturated with turpentine that it oozed from the pores of our skin like perapira- tion, aud had we been boxed would have run rosin like a South Georgia pine. We left Athens to get rid of this turpentine affliction, and came to Atlanta and placed ourself under the treatment of Dr. Calhoun. But we soon discovered that we jumped out of t!ie trying pan into the fire, rhe Doctor gave us a sort of vapor bath for our throat and nostrils,that smoked and tasted and smelled just like a tar-kiln afire. We hope some time to get well, bnt if we do shuffle ofl this mortal coil, and car remains are exhumed in alter years, we are strongly inclined to the opinion that the resurrectionist will find a light— woed knot in onr coffin. We certain ly appreciate the kindness of our triends, but beg and plead with them, in sending us a prescription, that hereafter they will eradicate the tur pentine portion. England fell behind onr country last year 500 000 tons. It is one of the most encouraging evidences of the Soutb.’s industrial progress that she produced last year nearly one-fourth the amount of iron produced in Great Britain, the figures given heing ap proximately correct. “The South’s future for the man ufacture of cotton is assured. Her production of iron, and the manu factures therefore atiord profitable fields for investment. “That the pressure of official du ties should deprive us of the pleas 9 ure of welcoming you to Augusta and our exposition, is a matter of dis- appointment and regret to onr fellow .citizens as well as to the directors and officers of the Augusta Exposi tion company, who are under obliga* lions tor the official sanction exten ded to onr enterprise, and for the personal and official courtesy exten ded daring their visit to Washing 9 ton.” ■ Sgcki.ess Jerky gave the Sheruiani- 3 a corker, in a speech in Ohio the other day, when he said: “Hurrahing for Sherman wifi not put a pair of pants on our back.—Columbus Enquirer Sun. Do-s Soekiess Jerry and Editor Rich ardson, of the Enquirer Sun wear pants on their bscts?” Do they, in fact wear “pants” at all? We prefer trousers on our legs. The most in portant ship in the French navy, the Brennus, has been launched, after two years and a half building, at a cost of 28, 00,000 francs Her heaviest guns, of which there are three, are fifty eight- tons. These are mounted on a barbette, but with a roof to protect them from small ord nance, and there are also a great num ber of small arms. A La Bills Db McKinley : Friends, Romans, Buckeyes: I come not here to talk; ye know too well the story of our thraldom. Let me skip that story now and simply cry “protection!” There is comfort in that word. W hy need I speak further? The very sound comforting—[aside] but it cannot bear inspection! Stop! You are going jnst a litii too fast here. Just a little too fast. What are the facts in the case ? Before Athens voted to establish the dispensary there were blind ti gers on every side street and alley— liquor dens that coaid not be broken up. The youth were tempted and ruined. The college students were not free from the dangerous influ encs. Men were becoming debased by mean, poisonous liquor „sold in defiance of the law, for which they were fast losing all respect. The sit uation was deplorable. A movement was started by a law and order party to get open bar- rroms in preference to this condition of almost hopeless corruption. The men who joined in this movement Here prompted by the sincere desire and ambition to do something for the good of their city. When the question was submitted to the voters a majority—and a small majority too —decided in favor of the dispensary plan as a more advisable solution of the problem than open barsrooms Since the dispensary was eaiab.- liehed in Athens all has been har mony. Prohibitionists and anti- THE R- & D’S DISCRIMINATION. Now Brnnswick is squealing and squirming beneath the oppressive boot-heel of the Richmond and Dan ville .Railroad Company. The Brnnswick Times asks the question : Has The Times bad too much faith in the large and liberal statements of their generous purposes by Mr John H. Inman and Mr. Patrick Cal- uonn? When The Times believed hat the combinations which were ef fected onder the Richmond Terminal system were generously intended for the development ot the Southeast was it fooled? When The Times depre cated the disposition on the part of the Georgia legislature to disturb the combinations was The Times flying in the face of the interests of its own town and immediate section? That is the way it looks now. li it is that way,- The Times is ready for repentance. It will repent itselt that it had too much confidence in the declarations of Mr. Inman and .Ylr. Calhoun. It will repent itself hat it ever believed that any pur ■ose was entertained in forming these combinations to aid the mate rial development of the southeast. It will repent itself that it did not favor the Berner bill. It the Richmond and Danville ays* em aud combination is to be opera~ ted to the disadvantage of so impor tant a port as Brnnswick or to the injury of any town, it does not de serve to live. It is too oppressive »nd unjust to be permitted to sur vive. The Bannir felt all along that it wonld come to this. Well, while w< sympathize with Brunswick, our con science is clear in having done onr duty in battling against this gigan tic combination. THE RICHMOND & DANVILLE. The report of the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company for the year ending Jane 30th 1891, is now in the bands of the printer, so onr dispatches from New York slate. This .report is interesting reading matter. While it shown that this gigantic system of railways as far South as Atlanta has come out clear t.f expenses for the year with a little money ahead, it also shows that the Georgia Pacific railroad, a branch of the Richmond and Danvilla has fallen short with a deficit of $880,o 397." This is a considerable increase in the deficit over the year prece ding- The following are the advanc e figures: Richmond and Danville and leases for fixed rentals (751 miles) Gross earnings, including interest on investments, $5 947,359; increase, $346 046; operating expenses $3,009 737: increase $101,714; net earnings $2,937,622; increase $448,361; fixed cbarges,sinking funds and tax* s $1, 725.219; decrease $13,178; surplus $1,212,403; increase $461 539.

THE INDUSTRIAL SOUTH. Some time since President Har i son requested Hon. Pat. Walsh, editor of the Augusta Cbrcn : c!e and President of the Augusta exposition, to famish him information in regard to the indus rial prr gress of the Sooth. In his'reply to President Harri son’s request, Editor Walsh says: “The South is developing rapidly and her manufacturing possibilities cannot be exaggerated. The South’s cotton mills .used last year over 600, 000 bales of the 2,400,000 consumed by the United States; in 1880 the South took only 180,000 bales. “Of 9,000,000 tons of iron pro* r*4 There has been quite a heated dis cussion going on in town ovei this question “If you had $5 cash what wonld he the happiest way you could epend it?” We modestly prefer to believe that fellow was right who said “To pay cash for one year’s subscription to the Athens Daily Banner.

Morton, of Clarke, is one representative of the people who has a record that shows him to think himself no better than the people he represents. Would that there were more such representative men in the Georgia legislature. jJt Marriage is a funny thing. It is a puzzle any way you take it these dsys.whiciijleHils me todec’arethat Lam afraid matrimony is not regarded with as much seriousness of late as it once was nor as much as it ought to receive But it is funny to study some mar riages. llow strangely they are entered ; by the ontracting parties and how wonderfully strangely they are broken off after a few brief years j of social wedded bliss. * • * ! Did you ever stand witness to a wed- | ding which was interrupted just at thati joint where the preacher t sks that any- jody who has objections, to speak out, or forever hold his peace ? One very frequently reads of such things in fiction aud romance, but he would hardly believe his own cars it he should actually witness such a proceed ing in real life. But they happeu now and then. I was talking on this same subjec with a minister of the gospel the other day, anti 1 asked him if he had ever been stopped in conducting a marriage cere j mony by such oppositiou. “No,” said he, “but I was met at the j front gate gne day by a relative of a girl who was to bo married, and begged ih t to marry her to her prospective bride groom. Tears were streaming down the woman’s cheek as she asked me please not to let the marriage take place.” “What did you do about it?” I asked “1 went to the bridegroom and told him there was going to be trouble in the camp, and told him if he wanted to marry the woman he would have to get another preacher. And he did it, but transferred the seene of his tials to some other house.” nup- kes the Weak Strong The marked benefit which people In run down or weakened state of health, derive troin Rood’s Sarsaparilla, conclusively proves the els bn that this medicine “makes the weak .-tronp.” It does not ret liko a stimulant, imparting fictitious strength from which there must follow a reaction of greater weakness than before, but In the most natural way Hood’s Sarsaparilla overcomes that tired feel ing, creates an appetite, purifies the blooC. and, in short, gives great bodily, nerve, mental and digestive strength. Fagged Out &iw “Last spring I was completely fagged out. My strength left mo and I felt sick and mls- iabte all the time, so that X could hardly attend to my business. I took one bottle of Hood’s Sarsaparilla, and It cared mo. There Is nothing like it." B. C.

Says the Americus Times Recorder: A correspondent from Oglethorpe coun ty writes the As hens Banner that the farmers down in that section are deter mined to plant more small grain this year than they have put under the ground for many a year gone by. Al most every farmer in that entire part of Georgia has entered fully into the spirit of the Cotton Convention recently held in Atlanta and baB agreed to plant less cotton and more small grain, corn, pota toes and the like. The trouble with the South today is the over production of cotton and the shortage in the production of wheat, oats, hay, corn and such orops Cotton is our section’s great commercial back bone, it is true, but our commercial in terests have lately been suffering very much from an enlargement of the spine. We have had too much of a good thing, and every farmer in the South knows it. The Japanese practice refined cruel ty to delight their palates. They be lieve that the fish called the dai is the most delicious when eaten alive.

Let this be his epitaph: He died game!” “The strangest and yet the most pathetic marriage scene I ever saw,” ! continued the minister, “was here iu , Athens one day when I was called in I to conduct the ceremony i which would make a wife of a very | pretty and rich young girl. ' ’The couple stood before me, and when I asked the man—a handsome young tellow he was—if he would take the woman for his “wedded wife tc love, honor,” etc. He made no response. “Everything grew deathly still ami the poor man’s heart was almost burst ing oat of his throat. He looked stead lastly on the ground without moving hi* Ups. “I repeated the inquiry from the cere mony but still he made no reply. Everybody stood by in breathless si lence and the very air was red hot with tragedy Finally he leaped frantically upon the sofa near by and buried his burning face deep into the cushioned pillows, groaning like some wild beast. “His bride coaxed him finally into standing up once more and murmuring oat some kind of answer and I pro nounued them man and wife, but not until he answered that question.” **» I have often beard of marriages being broken oft’ at the last hour. The funniest i ever heard of, though, was once wheu the. bride, atUred in veil and satin dress, slipped out of the bac* door and through the garden before her would be husband came. The funny part of it all was that he took it most good naturedly and made his wedding party all g,-» down and carouse on his bride’s wed ding dinner and wine until a late hour it night. The woman married somebody else in after life and is happy. So did he, and is happy, too. But, as I said before marriage is a strange affair any way you take it. Is it a failure?
