THE GEORGIA COTTON CROP*
The following Georgia special in
the New York Times gives some in-
formation of the cotton crop in this
"From first to last there has not
been a rainy day daring the cotton*
picking season, so that the entire
crop presents the highest grade. The
unexcelled weather for picking is also
a guarantee that the crop has been
pretty well marketed.
"Now attention is being directed
toward the size of the crop saved.
To take one county as an example, it
is estimated that the cotton crop of
Talbot county will be 2000 bales
short, which, at 9 cents, (the pre
vailing price in former years,) would
amount to $90,000. Then the pres
ent indications are that there will be
a falling ofi of about $7 50 per bale
in the price of this year’s crop, which
is estimated at about 10,000 bales in
the connty, making another loss of
'These two sums added amount to
$165,000, or a redaction in the rev
enue from the cotton crop of about
$12 each on the county’s 14,000 in
habitants. This would indicate a
shortage of 200,000 bales throughout

LARRY GANTT’S ADVICE-

hold back their cotton. He says:
We are opposed to meddling in
the private affairs of our members,
and while frequently asked for our
advice about selling cotton, we de
clined to express an opinion.
But since the staple has gone be
low eight cents, we say to every far
mer in Georgia, don’t sell a bale un
til an advance takes place. It costs
you more than the price now paid to
raise cotton, and don’t give away
your toil to the speculator.
There is no cause or reason for
this decline in price. The crop is

A CUTTING SCRAPE
TOOMBS DUBOSE SICK.
The numerous friends of Rev. F*
T. DuBose, all over Georgia, will be
seriously concerned to know that he
has been quite sick at bis home in
Chickamauga for the past few days.
Mr. DuBose was taken very criti
cally sick last week and a telegram
was received by his relatives here in
Athens a few days ago sammoning
them to bis bed-side.
The latest news from the sick man
is that he has typhoid fever, and is
quite dangerously ill, though evis
dences of improvement are noted.
Rev. Mr. DuBose is well known all
over this part of the South. He is a

personal encounter occurred in the
state house. This time it was between
A. E. Gonzales, general agent, of The
State, and M. F. Tighe. correspondent
of the Charleston News and Courier.
Gonzales approached Tighe and, pro
ducing a copy of the News and Courier,
read therefrom« portion of Tighe’s ac
count of the other fights, which he de
nounced as a lie Upon repeating it.
Tighe struck him. Gonzales responded
by kitting Tighe under tbe left eye, cut
ting a gash which bled profnsely. The
two men then clinched and rolled over
on. tbe floor, Gonzales being on top.
Both men fought gamely for several
minutes. Finally, when they had both
got up, Tighe said:
“You are my physical superior, but
m fight you in any way a gentleman
ought to fight, and I challenge you
now." -r -
Gonzales implied that Tighe could get
all the fight he wanted out of him in
any way ho desired.

set apart by the citizens of MacoD
for holding a convention of Georgia

some plan whereby tbe State of
