Being naturally loud ol Jacksei., ts u strange that my thoughts and sacred recesses ot my heart should go out in thankfulness te the Gieat Giver ol all good lor the many sweet memories, which I am permitted to cherish ot the two years I dwelt among and mingled with her people? During my stay I sipped nectar from n golden urn, and treasured might jt wets in the chain ol iriend ship some ol whom have been trans planted to a fairer clime. Huw vividly I now recall the of little Carter Carmichael, oim of the brightest jewels in the chain, ike sweet little playmate, who you dear childiei:, doubtless missed I rum his class one morning, a lew days latei was laid in a close and nairow grave dose beside little Jimmie Newin. the little compan ion ami relative whom he loved so well Week have past but his merry, holiest laugh still rings in our ears as we write tnese lines, Yen, as we enter the threshold of bis home, we can see him with mother, brothers and sisters ready to give us the sweet kiss of welcome ano entertain us with bis bright bus ol to always listened to with mi b appreciative *ars. We wer. si arrd irmn seeing his little bod racked with pain and treasure the memorv of seeing him in health and beauty. Lne would be two dear weie such sweets permitted to remain. So the great giver ©aw that dregs were needed to tie thrown into our bowl of nectar. Dear be** loved ones, w'tn an eye ol fat h, look beyond the dark river, and behold little Carter as he walks thesneet3 ol the New Jerusalam. his heart beatiDg in unison with the loved one who bad preceded to the home of the redeemed and blest. With heart* sure wi u sympathy we softly breath a prayer that ere long the sun of your aorrow will set to be succeeded by a rosier dawn. | JACKSON, GA., DECEMBER 14, 1893. We still hold in memory another brightly cueriehed gem, Mrs. Silas Thomas, the tender, loving mother or your uoble young u en. We were so associated with three of them as to daily witness the unfolding of those manly traits, which boro such beautiful testimony of the serene, geuie influence of the faithiul true mother, who lived to make lile bright and joyous for her fatherless sons, and hid from sight the sorrow of her own desolate heart that the happiness so natural to youtn, might not be marred by a single cloud. Often with a secret sorrow hang ing with leaden weight over our hearts, have we been so toothed and cheered by the sweet gentle inspira tion ol her presence, as to return to our duties strengtoeued to cope with arduous difficulties. Earth has lest but Heaven has gained a radiant star. No, she in not lost to earth for her fight shiues on and her influence lor good will throb on througn the coming years, Like the light of a blighted star, it will shine ou, auu ou lung years alter the star ltoeli is uiutied out from the heavens for ever. In her matchless character tnere was a symmetrical harmouious blending ol ail that is noble, pure and beautiful iu woman. Her fine ly tuned sympathetic nature caugtit the vibration anti responded te •yery note of sorrow. She keenly appreciated and al ways remembered the duties, re sponsibilities and graudear ot ner high Christian calling. Let us, dear friends aud neighbors, emulate ner example by carrying the Wi lte ban ner ofeur Captain high and to the iroai and when at last, *e are called Upon io lay it down, we may bear ibe welcome plaum; “Well uune thou good and faithful servant.*' You too, have, leit bright and un tarnished memories winch will con mi ue to live long after your bodies nave returned to dust. Daisy * UST FrOM. JENKIiNSBURU. Mr. W. J, Harris of Molena was in town last week. Rev, Joseph Middiebrooks ol Lo cust Grove filled his regular *p poiulmem at this place last Sun day evening. Toe JenkitiSburg ginnery has done a much better business this season than last. Mr. Thoa. Lovell, one of Locust Groye’s most affable and successful young business men, has associated himself with our clever townsman, Mr. J. F. Wnittaker, and together they will open up one of the must complete general merchandise es tablishments that has ever been in this place. They begin with the uew year aud will make thing*, hum. There will be two or three new stores opeued here oy another year. Jenkinsburg is coming in spite ol the hard times. Keep your eye on her. Rev. J, S. Askew was in attend ance at the North Georgia Confer ence in Gainesville this week. Mr. Askew has been a power lor good and has greatly endeared hi self to the people generally. The church is anxious that he be returned to this circuit. Mr. Wilton P. Cobb, our efficient depot agent, is the right man in the right place. Uuder his manage ment the earnings of this office has increased over 50 per cent. The Christmas tide is coming on apace and everywhere vou can hear fhis interrogation : “How are you going <o spend Christmas?” Wrll, he good—ihe truly good—will gather round the glowing Yule log, the Christian tatber and patriarch will take down the old family Bible and with loving hands will turn its well-worn pages till he reachea that portiou which tells bow, over 1800 tiuodred years ago, the faithful snepherds were startled and made afraid as they watched their sheep by night by the appearance of holy angels; h*w the angels calmed their fears aud told them the good tid ings ol great joy ; that in a manger ii- Bethlehem the Savior was oorii. and when he comes to that grand triumphant song of the Heavenly Host, ’ Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will io ward met/' His and theii hearts will thrill with gladness and love. The world will be made better by l he repetition of this beautiful story and on the morrow as the little tots gleefully prattle about the presents old Santa Claus brought them U ni 8 richest blessings will rest on that household. The bad—those who neither fear Ged nor low man—will swagger ofl' to some low down grog shop and there hand over the money *hat a destitute family needs iur “bust heard" whisky aud proceed to "lank” up for the Christmas row that is sure to follow, Shameful contrast. The ludifferent—those who drift aloug in a negative sort of way—will stand around the street corners or country stores aud listen to some amateur saw uu an old squeaky fiddle, iaugti at silly jokes or per haps get up enough enthusiasm to orusn up an old blunderbuss and follow a hall i ur dog all day after a rabbit. “Such funny things a lel fow does see when he hasn’t a gun.” Ait*.

We are no kickers, and none of our ancestors were kickers, bnt, it does try our feelings to have a man prance into our sanc'oinm and rave and rant about “patronizing home mdattries,” “booming our town,” “helping home en terprises,” and printing seven or eight columns about home institutions and then receive a bill on the first of the mouth from this same man, who has his printing done in Atlanta, when he .-‘ould benefit himself and us by having it done at the Argcs office in just as good style and at the same price!
