Ws copy the following compliment of
Butts’ representative from Hales’ Week
ly, of Conyers, Ga.:
Our neighboring counties of Butts and
Clayton should feel proud of their rep
resentatives who sat just across the
main aisle from each other —T. J. Demp
sey and “Bud” Kimsey. Two cleverer
men never lived and their work for the
people both in committee and the House
was of the highest order. Two abler,
cleaner representatives these counties
have never had.
Jackson Inetitute resumed operations
last week, with most flattering pros
pects. After the usual opening ceremo
nies, the teachers settled down to busi
ness and it was not lone before the pu
pils were all hammering away on their
books in earnest endeavors to demon
strate the fact that “every boy has a
chance to become president some day.”
This expression carries us back to a few
year ago, when we had a member of the
board of education to make the remark
to our class of the Boys High School at
Atlanta, but some how or other our
chance never materialized, and Grover
Cleveland got it, but we guess it’s for
the best after all, for if we had got in
there, we might not have given as much
satisfaction to the people as ths presi
dent, but we could everlastingly wipe
him up at “shooting snipes.”
At any rate the pupils of Jackson In
stitute have as good opportunities for
some day becoming president as we had,
but If they don’t make better use
of it their chanoeS for seeing the “White
House” are very, very, slim! with a cap

Jackson, Georgia, the Capital and Commercial
Center of Butts County.
A Few A'otesof Information toThose
IVlio Have Sever Had the Pleas
ure of a Visit to Onr Town,
/V\ANY psople who have never yisit
jf Jackson are desirous of know
ing something of its size, charac
ter, social and religious advantages,
etc. To those we would make reply
that it is ever a labor of lore and pride
with the Jackson Argus to sing the
praises of the beautiful and far-famed
“Growing City,” its prosperity, culture
and refinement, its proud past, its splen
did present aud the wonderful promises
of its future.
The Argus only wishes that it might
sing these praises in metric verse to thd
accompaniment of the sweetest notest
of the yEolian lyre.
Proverbially the most beautilul city in
the South, and by the. statistics proven
to be the first iu point of healthfulness
in the Uuipn, it derives the alliterative
cognomen of the “Growing City,” from
the fact that it has redoubled its popula
tion several times in tlis last few years.
Situated in the very heart of Georgia’s
wonderful cotton, cereal and fruit pro
ducing region, it is the acknowledged
granary and commercial capital of this
section of Georgia.
The smoke of its enterprises, the
spires of its churches, * and the cupolas
of its college tell that it is the home
of an. industrious people who honor
God and love knowledge.
Its retail dry goods and grocery es
tablishments, warehouses, carriage fac
tory, ginneries, oil mills and gua .o fac
tories show it to be the recognized
commercial mart and distributing
point for a vast area of country, and
the marvelous growth of the last de
cade is but a demonstration, of what
the future must bring with its present
railroad and superior transportation
facilities properly utilized.
In the very heart of this lovely city
the Jackson Institute proudly rears its
stately head and admiringly views the
prosperity of it# beauteous, bustling
environment, conscious that the com
mercial arteries of the city are being
daily quickened by its graduates, who,
like so many Miaervas from the head of
Jupiter, issue from its walls full, pano

Located at the point of convergence of
two of the principal streets of our city,
the college is quickly and easily acces
sible from every point. Towering high
above its neighbors, its lofty spire is
gilded by the first jeweled rays of the
morning sunlight, and its students are
refreshed by the last cooling breezes
of the evening shades. True to its
twin mottoes: “Knowledge is Power,”
and “There is no Excellence Without
Labor,” its several departments repre
sent so many hives ®f human industry,
whose products are the skilled hands
and carefully trained minds of its grad
Reflecting upon the achievements of
the past, the Jackson Institute has the
proud consciousness that its fame is
secure and acknowledges no other ri
yal but itself.
The city of Jackson is situated only
four miles from the elevated Indian
Spring, whose waters have gained a
world-wiae reputatin for their medicinal
qualities, and which place is annually
crowded with visitors availing them
selves of the curative powers of one of
the most marvelous and natural erup
tions ever emanating from the bowels
of the earth. Only a twenty minutes’
ride, over a smooth driveway is required
to reach this far-famed summer resort
from our city, and the superior accom
modations offered those who stop in our
city are of such a nature as to prove
both beneficial and lucrative. Situated
as it is, midway between Atlanta and
Macon, Jackson is easily accessible to
either, aud her railroadaccommodations
are such that no inconvenience is suf
fered by those who at any time desjre
visiting these places.
The feoil and climate is especially
adapted to the growth of almost every
vegetation known to naturalists, and a

A LITTLE TAFFY.
The Middlt Georgia Argus, printed at
Jackson, came to us last week muoh im
plored and now bears the name of the
Jackson Argus with the well known
Journalists, John G. McDonald and N.
J. Harmon at its helm. Under the man
agement of Mr. D. J. Thfaxtonthe Argus
flourished and did great things for the
upbuilding of that now thriving little
city, and we are sure with its present
management it will continue in this
same work. The writer has spent many
happy hours in the Argus oflice and has
had the cover kicked off our already cold
feet many nights during the winter of
1880-90 by Johnnie Mo, nevertheless, he
is a good bed-follow and knows no such
thing as fail at the newspaper busiuese.

$l7O A TON.
If some of our farmers should ask a
dealer the price of his guano and should
be told that he could get a ton for one
hundred and seventy dollars, or eight
dollars and fifty cents a hundred pounds,
he would doubtless stand dumbfounded,
and yet that would be tlic cheapest guano
lie ever bought if it were pure. The
commercial value of 500 pounds of avail
able phosphoric acid is S2O. of 500 pounds
pure potash S2O. and of 1000 pounds of
ammonia, making the ton, $130., the ag
gregate of whioli is $l7O. Guano should
not be allowed to bo put on the market
that does not have a commercial value of
SIOO per ton, for if the worthless stuff
that is being hauled, wearing out wag
ons and mules and consuming time for
distributing, was known to be very little
better than our soil at home, we would
buy better guauo. The farmers still
clamor for cheap guano and the dealers
make it cheaper until it would now be
impossible to sell a manure equal to the
standard of the old Peruvian. Rather
than buy good goods we will pay freight
and haul a thousand tons of dirt and
rocks every year. Somebody quit this
foolishness and call for high priced fer
tilizers, and run the standard up higher
and get better pay for your money.
THE DOLLAR WE WANT.
What we want, is a dollar easy to get
and hard to let go; a dollar that will pay
$4 worth of detbs and then come back by
means of a string attatchment. a dollar
that snuggles easy in the socks of John
Smith, but withers like the manner ot old
in the safe of a railroad president; a dol
lar that will buy some flour and meat
while it buys much whiskey and tobacco;
a dollar above drawing interest, and yet
will double itself while the owner sits in
the shade and spits at a crack in the pave*
ment; a dollar that will circulato without
appreciation; will buy shoes for baby
while it buys fun for man in places where
he con not take his wife; a dollar that will
surely repair the waste of sloth, appetite
aud bad judgement; a dollar that cemes to
to the lap of indolence like worms to the
craw of a fatherless robin, a dollar that
will remove the sentence pronounced upon
Adam, reverse the order of nature, and
transform the nature of men. This, ac
cording to our esteemed contemporaries,
is the kind of a dollar we want.
A SERIOUS QUESTION.
The State school commissioner
has sent out circular No. 13 to the
county School commissioners giv
ing his construction upon the re
cent legislation and the school laws
of the state. Mr. Bradwell says the
leading point seems to be the quar
terly payment of teachers, and
thinks it absolutely necessary to
adopt the salary plan. Now these
two propositions taken together are
a bugaboo, because the state gives
the money, mot to teachers, but to
the children. Now, should Ahold
a first grade certificate and B a sec
ond grade, we will all concede that
A is due some consideration on ac
count of his superior qualifications,
and should havo a better salary.
But if B has a school where thirty
pup Is are in attendance, and A has
only twenty in his school, we can
easily sue thu injustice to the chil
dren in B's school, for whose benefit
the state has appropriated the mon
ey. It seems that the county school
authorities will have a hard road to
travel to reconcile these matters and
give the necessary encouragement
to teachers of the higher grades and
do no injustice to the children. In
our county the board of education
have left the matter in the hands of
Hon. E. E. Pound, who we think is
equal to the emergency and will
take both qualification of teachers
and the number of children in at
tendance in fixing the salary of the
