Til \T ANNUM. ENCAMPMENT.
The coming encampment of the
4th Georgia regiment is a matter
that should invite the attention of our
local military company. The Al
bany Herald of Thursday afternoon
“There is a movement on foot, un
der the leadership of Col. George T.
Canti, State Inspector of Rifle Prac
tice, to hold an encampment of the
state at Savaunah in May or June.
The encampment, it the scheme goes
through, will last for a week, and the
troops will have thejiplendid advan
tages in rifle practice, offered by the
Avondale rifle range.
In case the 4th regiment decides
to have an independent encampment,
there will be a lively rivalry between
the cbthpanies of the organization
for the honer of playing the part of
host. Several citi?s where compan
ies of the regiment are stationed
have already expressed a desire for
the eneampmenl, and there will be
some lively wife pulling if- the
Fourth decides to ‘go it alone.’ ”
At the last encampment and for
some time thereafter a great deal
was said favorable to the selection
of Bainbridge as the point for the
next encampment, and we see ne
reason why it should not be. Our
boys are anxious to entertain the
regiment and we are not lacking in
any accomodation that would add to
the pleasure of the same.
Suppose that we keep oiir weather
eye on the movement of other places
and in the event the regiment, “goes
it alone,”, as the Herald suggests,
we might stand an excellent show of
bringing the visitors .to our* town.
The adjourned term of Decatur
Superior Court, as per announcement,
convened Monday mormrtg, Judge
Spence presiding. The first three
days of the session were consumed
on the civil docket. The tp-iniiu&l
docket was taken up Thursday morn
ing but owing to the indisposition of
Judge Spence no business of lmpor-
ance was transacted.
The cases of Norman, Thomas,
Clarke and others, charged with
forging land deeds, went out nomi
nally on a nol prossed, owing to a
defect in the bills of indictment.
, The court took a recess till the
next regular term in May.

Editor Search Light :-7 f We learn
that an ' erroneous impression has
gotten out to the. effout that Drs.
Baggs <fc Spence, of Valdosta, Gu.,
had secured the office of the late Dr.
W. W. Palmer, and would auccced
to his practice.
We have this to say : Dr. Palmei
left a strictly up-to-date Dental office,
and did a large and lucrative prac
tice. We control a-lease dn his fine
brick office—built for him according
to the latest ^requirements—and as
soon as an inventory can be taken
and certain legal requirements can
be complied with, wo will sell for the
benefit of his witd and baby, all ma
terial and furnishings ot his office,
transfer lease to purchaser. We
shall investigate, as it is our desire
to secure a thoroughly competent
dentist, to fill his place, and will
mail circular letters to all his pa
trons notifying them ot sale. Hop
ing that the many friends of Dr.
Palmer will assist us in this worthy
cause, we are respectfully.
