On Thursday December 21. 1893 af tlie Morrison House in this city. Mr. Jobn L. Lyons and Miss Cleora Gibbs were united in the holy bans of mat rimouy, by Rev. J. J*. Lakes, of this city. Mr. Lyons is a young man of strict business integrity, and a gentleman of tact and energy. For a number of } ears he has been connected with the Western L nion telegraph company, at this piace, as its manager, and to day stands a most honored and trust ed employe, with a host of friends who congratulate him upon his uew venture in life. Misa Gibbs is a sister to the late Mrs. Morrison, and is a young lady of a most lovable disposition, and well worthy of the gentleman she has chos eu as a partner in life. Loved by ev ery acquaintance, he enters the mar* riage state with the most hearty wish es ef a multitude of friends whose soul desire is tuat her life may be as a bed of rose? —one perpetual dream of loveliness. The Argus congratulates these young people in their undertaking and wishes them a long life of useful ness. After the ceremony the happy couple left for Cedartown, where Ihev spent a week visiting relatives and friends in that city. They have since returned home, however, and it pleases us to state that they intend making Jackson their futur* home. TURNER— ELLIS. At tlie residence of Mr. J. 11. Ham, near Cedar Rock, in this count} 7 , on Sunday, Dec. 23, Mr. Oscar Turner was united n marriage to Miss Phoe be Ellis, bo'.h of this count}-, “Rev.” Howard Ham officiating. The Ar gus extends its happiest wishes for a continued life' of prosperity to this happy couj 10, and our junior pokes out his “paw” in congratulation. FRANKLIN—ROGERS. Last night at the Methodist church, at Barnesville, Mr. 11. M. Franklin, of rennille, Ga., w as united in marriage to Miss Helen Rogers, of that city. Miss Helen, as is well known, is the daughter of Mrs. L. K. Rogers, of Gor don Institute. She is a highly cultured and gifted young lady and is well known over the state. For the past two years she hag hs:d charge cf the music ment of Jackson Institute, of this city, and by her gifted talent and lady-like deportment has won many friends and admirers. Mr. Franklin is a gentleman of line presence, and of superior social and business standing, being one of the most enterprising young merchants of South ern Georgia. This couple lias hosts of friends here and elsewhere who join us in extending congratulations. May their future life be an untarnished dream of prosperity and happiness, and may their fondest expectations be realized is tlie wish of the J ack sox Argus, and the pupils and faculty of Jackson Institute. Married on the 31st day of December, 1803, J. H. Ham, Esq., officiating, Mr. Jessie Holilield to Miss Laura Duke. The Argus extends congratulations. A GIFTED LADY. As Jackson is tlie home of Miss Leo noia Deck, the Argus takes great pleas ure in publishing such high testimonials of her merit, especially so, when it comes from such authority as the people of Atlauta. We copy from the Constitu tion: “Miss Leonora Beck’s many friends will be delighted to know that she has refused the magnificent offer of the presidency of one of the noted col leges of the north and will remain in charge of the excellent institution of which she is now president, and whose success is due to her owu efforts. It was a high compliment to be called to 6ueli a fine position, but Miss Beck has a natural pride in Uie Capital college and it is her aim to make it fully the equal of any of the great institutions for tlie education of women in New York or New England. A J of us who feel deep interested in the educational welfare of Atlanta and of Georgia are grateful to her for her de cision to remain here.” This week millions of bright-eyed children meet thousands of competent teachers and the good work of the new term begius with the new year. The power and influence of the teacheis of this country is uot definitely known for it can uot be measured by enumeration nor expressed in language, nor compre hended by tbe most towering intellect, until the great account is made out in eternity. When we bring the question down home we can but wouder what Jackson would be without the lustitute, and we can measure the real prosperity of eyery other town by character of its its institution of learning. The agricultural club at Fletcher’s Institute have more comfortable homes, more hogs and corn and fertile fields than auy like iustitutious of its numbers in the state and Col. M. Y. McKLbben ia not afraid of such men a compose it which means they will never be out of money on which to run their business. Professors Woodward of Milledgeville, and Fletcher of Barnesville, visited Jackson last week. Chaa. Beauchamp of Oxford spent Christmas with his parents of this place. Mr. W. M. Grisenger of Lanark. 111., was the guest of Mr. M. J. Clifford last week. Mr. S. M. Harris and Miss Belle Skin ner were monied last Thursday, we hope for them a prosperous Me and thatall their troubles will be little ones. Henry Morgan is now with the Star Store. The lower extremities of the young man who acted Santaelaus at the Christ mas tree at .Jenkinsburg, were not so large as he wished them, and he wrap ped them around with cotton, which took fire, causing some old scratching, etc. lie was not hurt, however. There is more evidence in the scrip ture that Christ was born on the 25th day of December than there is that the day we keep or the Sabbath is the one on which God rested from his labors. In either case it docsen’t matter, since any day set apart to commemorate an event is as good as any other day. The important point in this matter is to keep the day in a becoming way. fry pIACK-D^AUC-.S. tea for Dyspepsia.

JUST FROM JENKINSBURG. Mr. R. G. McCurdy of Flovilla w as visiting here last Sunday. Rev. J. S. Askew spent several days in Coweta county last wick. Prof- G. L. Harris will teach a' Phillippi this year. Mi-s Fannie Meriwether of Newtian is visiting Mrs. Askew. Lagi ipp is raging in the “burg.” Prof. Thompson, Miss Lola Childs, M. L. Harris and others a.e laid up with it. Miss Lillie Moore spent Christmas with her parents. She is attending the Capitol F male Seminary of At lanta and is making an enviable rec ord. There was not a single row in Jenkinsburg Christmas week. let some people think that the majority of “toughs” from the “heail-walei s of bitter creek” make this piace their favorite stamping ground. Pof. Charlie Woodwvtiu of Milledge ville came up to see his p: t ents Christ mas. The Christmas tree went off smooth ly ad everybody got a present—“if they didn’t they most.” The young people have had parties, dinners, rte. galore. Sp: -e forbids a special write-up. John Moore came over from Oxford to spend Christmas with ids parents— and ot hers. 3he new- year lias come—tiie time when every fool, nearly, does his an nual “swearing off." Better not do it Buddie—nobody will t aeve you; besidss, what’s (lie use going around croaking your big resolutions in every one’s ear that will listen to you ? The best plan is to get off to yourself and do some real, hard down thinking. Then, after you have summed tip the past, and h&ve found -a, most ot us tv ill—a big row of goose eggs to your credit you better stop, look at ’em thoroughly and do some private “rcs olutin’ , but dou’t go to blabing about it lor, if you imp; he world will “catch on,” and if you don’t you’ll have nobody to tell ' you that you “broke over.” Be careful about swearing off—the people are thread bare on it and the. world generally is tired of hearing folks talk like philoso phers and act like “blamed” tools. Henry Morgan is now at the Star Store where he will be glad to see you. The offer made in this issue of a free scholarship in the Georgia-Al abama Business College, of Macon, Ga. is a rt re opportunity for some one ot our young friends to secure an education in the test institution of its kind in the South.. The prin cipals stand at the head of their pro fession and their declared purpose to educate some worthy bhy ©r girl in every county cannot fail to com mand the highest piaise. GOES TO DR. PRICE. World’s Fair Jury Decides in His Favor. Chicago, Jan. 3.—On the analysis and recommendation of Dr. Wiley, Chief United States Government Chemist at Washington, and greatest living authority on food products, the World’s Fair jury to-day gave the highest award to Dr. Price’s Cream Baking Powder foi strength, purity and excellence. This conclusively settles the question of superiority. Dr. Wiley rejected the alum powders, stating to the .World’s Fair jury that he considered them unwholesome. ACCEPT OUR THANKS. We cannot but feel grateful tor such flattering testimonials, especially when they come from such high sourc es of authority as the following pa pers : “The Christmas edition of the Jackson Argus was a beauty."— Pike Connlv Journal. “The Jacksox Argus came out in pink with brown covers for Christ mas. It was one ot the prettiest holi day editions that have 'cached the exchange table.”—Atlanta Journal. CONTRACTORS NOTICE. Any person wanting first-class work, by a workman of 20 year - experience in stone cr bn. k, such as darns built, blasting, where dyna mite is used, or in all such work as lock houses or piers, Call on G. VV. Watkins, Decl-lyr Jackson, Ga. THE ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE. Looking Afbr the Alum and Ammonia Baking Powders. (Chicago Zuter-Ocean.) A bill for an act entitled ‘‘An act to Regulate*:he Traffic iu Baking Powder, ’’ has been introduced in the legislature at Spiingfield, by Mr. iVbhe The bill is in tended to prevent the adulteration of bak ing powders with ammonia or alum, im posing proper penalties to enforce the law. etc. Jhis shows an earnest desire on the part of our representatives to protect their constituent;. 7he Chicago Tribune referring to the question of legislation of alum aud ammo nia baking powders, says. “It deals in a direct manner with an evil that must he cut down.” “Following is a partial list of the names of the brands sold iu this state that liar,, been examined aud found to contain either ammonia or alum. Many of the alum and ammonia powders are labeled aud ad vertised as “absolutely pure” to mislead the public. “Calumet,” “Forest City.” “Chicago Feast," “Grant’s Bon /Ion,” “Hotel,” “Taylor's One Apoon,” “Taj lor’s Double Strength,” “Climax,” “Bon Jon," “Town Talk, “Manhattan,” “Avans,” “Dob son & Hill's” “Shepard's” “7>ain*s” “Kenton,” “K. C.” “Loyal,/ “Double Logie,” Iu addition to the above list there is a multitude of brands sold with a prize. It is safe to reject all baking powders sold v ith a prize, as the tests shaw they are composed largely of alum and costs but a few cents per pound. Also refuse any baking powder sold at twenty-five cents a pound, or less; ids sure to contain alum. Surely nothing but their cheapness could induce the public to expeiiment with these impure powders at the risk ot health. Aside from the question of health or the JACK FROST PARTY. We barn that on Tuesday night of last week, at the residence of Mr. Alex At kinson, of this county, his daughter, Miss Minnie, extended to her friends and acquaintances, a Jack Frost Party, and from those in attendance, we learn that from point of loveliness and pure una dulterated enjoyment, no such occasion has yet been chronicled. The parlor was festooned with decorations suited to the occasion, and abundant refreshments were served in bountiful profusion, -hiss Minnie acted as hostess in a manner that won for herself many friends and admirers, A number of couples were present, aud to only mention the names of those in attendence is a sufficient guarantee that a more enjoyable time was never spent. We learn that thoss present were: Mr. A. F. Whitney, Miss Martha Jane Carmichael; Mr. W. 11. Higgins, Miss Clyde MeCallum; Mr. J. M. Kinard, Miss Carrie Hitchins; Mr. S. B. Kinard, Miss Myrtle Pound; Mr. Robert Carmichael, Miss Lizzie Slaughter; C. P. Carmichael, Miss Estelle Carmichael; Mr. Tom P. Atkinson, Miss Elia Pound; Mr. Sowell, Miss Alma Atkinson; Mr. C. C. Ray, Miss Glass: Mr. Claude Gray, Miss Clyde Gray; Messrs. C, Pinkney, Walter Moore and W. F. Lee. The Chattenooga Medicine Company have won a trade-mark lawsuit in the U. &.

Jackson will have a soda water factory some time this month, and Mr. J. W. Francis, of Eastman, Ga., is the gentle man who will manijmlatfc the business. He was in Jackson a week ago looking for a suitable place to locate, and has de cided to erect his plant in the brick building opposite Almand, Moon & Co’s. This new industry will add greatly to the interest of Jackson and her citizens should lend their help towards fostering it on to prosperity. Mr. Francis is a genial, whole souled gentlemen, and is capable of making friends of all acquaintance. lie is also an excellent musieian and is now leader of the brass baud at Eastman.
