“You like to see interesting relics,
don't .vou?” said friend John H. Wikle,
at the court house, yesterday. Of course
we do, so he showed ns an old hickory
stick with a coon's head cut on it. It
belonged to Ah*. H. C. Ramsaur, and was
brought by his father from North Caro
lina, during the old Harrison coon skin
campaign, some forty years ago. It
ought to be sent to Hon. Benj. Harrison.
A gentleman last week sent a job of

money away from home for work in this

standing to which Messrs. Willingham Ac
Wikle had brought the Courant-Ameri

We hope they may succeed grandly.—
A good one is given us from one who
overheard two gentlemen discussing the
farmers’ alliance and its effects in differ"
ent ways. They were a merchant and
lawyer. The former said to the latter:
“If this new movement accomplishes
what is intended, the merchants will be
killed and the lawyers put to work.”
“Then,” said the.former, “I will have the
advantage of you. for I am swamped if I
hadn't rather die than go to work.”
All hands and the devil return thanks

sample of his melon crop. He also has
a splendid crop of corn and cotton, and
bids fair to be one of Bartow's best far

if more boys were following Willis’ good
Our friends, Messrs. Elam Christian
and 1). B. Freeman, since their purchase
of the Cartersville Courant-American,
are showing what two experienced and
capable journalists can do in giving the
people a splendid, live and able paper.
It is well patronized and they have one
of the best and richest counties in the
State in which to work. The paper will
rank with the best in the State, and they
have our best wishes for success.—
The gas company propose to speud at
least ten thousand dollars in improve

southern part of the city, as land owners
in that section propose to donate the
land. It will be systematically platted,
streets, avenues and parks laid out and
beautified, and will doubtless soon fur
nish homes for a stirring, shifty colony
of Massachusetts people.
