Prof. W. Harper was very inter
esting and instructive in his lecture at
the Institute. He blends scince aud re
ligion as co-workers in the development
of man, and thinks scince is conduoive to
the highest state of Christianity, and not
derogative as some would have us be
lieve. He was educated in Germany,
aud has the association of those people
advantage over our men who are educa
ted at home. He has acquired a vast
store of useful knowledge, and is doing a
lot of good in the world dispensing it
without charge. Judge Pound is to be
congratulated ou his selection of this
learned gentleman for the expert in our
county this year.
If this county ever has a city oourt in
it, aud we understand some want a city
court, it wont do to put an unstable
gentleman, who is forever trying to hit
some fancied enemy below the bolt, as
its judge. No strong partisan either in
politics or in denominational prejudices
is fit for a judge of a court. Because to
be a judge a man must not be of a nerv
ous temperament, nor of a revengeful
disposition. Uowever, we need uo city
court anyway. We are doing well
enough now and that matter should rest
where it is, A city court is a “miser
able makeshift” for a county court.
We call attention to the announcement

able to work iu the field, having frequent
hemorrhages of the lungs. His wife, too,
has been and is now very feeble and un
able to do the work, we farmers are ob
liged to allow our wives to perform. He
has three bright little children who
should be educated and cared for. A
vote for Mr. Saunders means that you
want to lift the shadow from that home,
and help a youug, ambitious, though
sickly, man to provide for that wife of
his bosom and those little fellows. Cit
izens, it won’t cost you anythiug to vote
for Mr. Saunders and help to make a
happy home. He is fully competent to
discharge the duties of the office, and

It affords us great pleasure to know
that the services of our young men are
being persistently sought after by our
sister cities. On last week, Mr. John

at Oxford college with high distinction,
was chosen from among a large number
of applicants for the responsible posi
tion of principal of the
Monticello Institute, a school enrolling
upon its roster an average attendance of
175 pupils. The board of directors were
very favorably impressed with the ideas
of Mr. Moore conveyed to them through
a speech of some length, in which his
intentions and plans wars clearly dem
onstrated to the satisfaction of all pres
ent. This is a high compliment bestow
ed upon a young man who is in every
aay deserving of the appreciation shown
him by the citizens of Monticello, and

Fiom Crime to Death.
Near the line of ourcourty just over
in our sister county, Monroe, a black de
mon named Ogletree brutally assaulted
Mrs. Dr. Wright. Of cou's *, there was
a lynching in Monroe, and the only rea
son that it was not in Butts was because
the crime was over the line. Hew long
before rapists will learn that death, im
mediate death, is the price this fiend
ish crime in Georgia? The g ivernor may
offer rewards and the people may clamor
for law and order, but we dare say that
the men who swung that fiend, Ogletree,
to the limb, are as true and law abiding,
as brave and chivalrous, as merciful and
religious, as any like number in these
Yes, they are law abiding citizens and
used the only law adequate to the crime.
The only thin 4 to be sure of is that the
demon of hell committed the crime, and
there is no question as to what muse be
done with him. Judge Lynch will ar
range that matter. If there is any
scoundrel, of any color whatever, con
templating anything of the kind, we
advise him to hang a rock on his neck
and put a stick in his mouth and jump
in the river before, instead of waiting un
til afterwards. We suppose, as is cus
tomary in New York and Onio in such
matters, as well as iu Georgia, the fiend
was given time to pray, but we don’t be
lieve that God forgave him, and we be
lieve he, together with all who ever
committed the crime that he did, are
this minute in hell.
SWUNG TO A LIMB.
The first lynching that was eyer had
in this county was had Saturday night.
Friday night Owen Ogletree, a negro
man about 30 years of age, criminally
assaulted Mrs, Dr. Wright at her home
near High Falls iu this county while her
husband had gone to yisit a patient.
The negro was in the en ploy of Mr.
Gilmore, residing near J*r, Wright’s
home, aud knew of the uce of the
doctor. After committing the assault he
remained in the neighborhood and during
Saturday was apprehended being known
by Mrs. Wright. At the commitment
trial Saturday eveuing the proof of his
crime was positive. After his commit
ment, Constable W. J. Caldwell took
charge of Ogletree, and summoned
Messrs. Charlie Giant and Newton Mad
dox to aid him in bringing the negro
safely to jail. The commitment trial
being terminated late iu the eveuing, it
was after nightfall before Mr. Caldwell
started with bis prisoner to jail. When
lie and bis posse reaehed the new bridge
on the Towaliga about eight miles from
the city, they were met by a large num
ber of determined men in disguise, who
took charge of the prisoner afte*- over
powering the constable and bis aids and
taking them off. That was the last
known of the proceedings until Sunday
morning when tne negro was seen by
some passerby swinging by the neck at
the end of a rope secui: % faste ted to
the limb of a water oak about fifty yards
from the bridge, with two bullet holes in
his body. Thus Ogletree paid the pen
alty of his hellish crime.
Upon his person was a card giving
notice that the women will be protected
against such fiends.
While resort to lynch law is bad policy
yet an enraged people will not not per
mit suoh dastardly crimes, but will see
to it that the perpetrators of such are
promptly punished. The inquest inves
tigation developed no clue to the lynch

made in the constitution of the Wo

“The officers elected were Miss Leo

“The election of Miss Leonora Beck
to the position of president of the Wo

congratulation among its members, for
although Miss Beck has never been en
gaged in active journalistic work, there
is perhaps no woman in Georgia who
has more articles aocepted by northern
newspapers, or who has famished more
poems or sketches to magazines and
weeklies than she. Miss Beck is essen

She has made a great success of the Cap

and an able talker, possessing that just
discriminating temperament which is al

with girls will be invaluable in assisting
the club members to extend their influ

women of the state. Altogether Miss
Beck will make a brilliant president and
a worthy successor to Mrs. Byington,
whose tact, force and wise management
has done much for the club, and whose
great popularity was proven by her re

We are glad to know that Miss Beck is
properly appreciated. She lived in our

A MATRIMONIAL WAVE.
Cupid has been getting in his work
around these parts in spite of the
drouth. On the 28th inst. there will be
four people married in Jackson. Not
withstanding the scarcity of invitations,
and the very select few who are worthy
to witness the neptials, we can assure
you of at least four on that day, and in
all probability two of them will be gen
tlemen and, of course, the other two
will be ladies.
Jackson needs a public libraryl How
does that strike you? There is hardly a
town in the state as large as Jackson,
that has not one of these institutions in
its midst. A public library would prove
a most beneficial enterprise to the peo
ple of Jackson. Subscriptions could be
taken up for the purpose of purchasing
suitable books and papers, and those
who preferred could donate as many
books as they could conveniently give
in preferance to making oash subscrip
tions. In this manner a good selection
of literature could be procured and
those who had subscribed to th • worthy
cause would not for a moment feel the
loss of their contributions. A hall could
be secured for that purpose, and it could
be maintained at comparatively no ex
pense to the members. It would be a
source of great enjoyment, and the time
could be most profitably spent by whil
ing away these long summer evenings
in reading literature that would prove
instructive to the mind, and at the same
time promote beneficial social rela
tions. Let us hear from our citizens on
this line, then call a meeting of those fa
vorable to the idea, appoint committees,
and ere long we will have an enterprise
that will be as well patronized and prove
as beneficial for the amount of money
invested, as anything that comes to our
mind at present.
