A TIMELY TOPIC.
In another column will be found a
communication signed “An Observer,”
touching upon the sanitary condition of
our town, and its liability of having an
epidemic of typhoid fever as a result of
the unclean condition of the back yards,
alleys and out houses of our citizens.
This is a timely suggestion upon an im
portant topic, and bis views upon the
subject are strictly in accord with our
own. A board of health should be or
ganized in J? ckson and have as its chair
man a physician who lias the courage to
speak ont for what be thinks to be for the
interest and health of our citizens. And
it should be done at once. When the
health of our citizens is at stake, it is
your duty as a citizen to use any honor
able means in your power to endeavor to
abate this nuisance. While there are some
our of citizens who keep their premi
ses in a clean condition, there are some
who are negligent in the matter, and our
mayor and coucil should see to it that
our city presents as clean and tidy ap
pearance as possible.

A CARD FROM KOI T. J. DFMPSEI
Mr. Editors: —As I have had many in
quiries of late as to my position with
reference to the establishment of a city
court in Butts county, I wish to say in
reply to these inquiries that lam strong
ly opposed to the establishment of a city
or ocunty courty in our county. We are
doing well without either, and why im
pose a court of this kind on our people,
when it is plainly demonstrated that we
have no use for it? No, Mr. Editors, if
I fayored a city court I could have pass
ed a bill while in the last legeislature to
establish it in our county. I was then
opposed to it, and haye had no reason to
change my mind. I think the fewer
courts we have the better for the people.

DEATH BY HYDROPHOBIA.
The little negro child which the argus
mentioned some time since as being bit
ten by a mad dog, died last Friday of
hydrophobia. The wound in the child’s
face healed quickly and was almost scar
lets, but in 33 days after it was bitten, it
was taken sick and its aversion to water
noticed. It died in 48 hours after the first
appearance of the disease, and died a
horrible death. We belieye dogs are a
perpetual nuisauce, and think the life,
even of the pitiful little negro mentioned
above, is worth more than all the dogs in
the state of Georgia. We wish our next
legislature would look after this dog
matter. We know a settlement of col
ored folks, who are unable or unwilling
to feed their dogs, and the half starved
animals prowl around until they go mad
and cause grief in the settlement. Is
there no remedy.
