SIGNS OF PROGRESS.
One of the most marked signs of our
progressive age is the growing demand
for Ayer’s Sarsaparilla as a Spring Medi
cine. It shows not only that people are
rapidly abandoning their “yarbs” and
bitters, but, still better, that they ap
preciate the difference between a genu
ine pharmaceutical preparation and the
much yaunted nostrums of quackery.
Ayer’s Sarsaparilla is not a transient
tonic, causing one to feel good for a
while, nor merely something to stimulate
a weak appetite, nor to afford a tempor
ary bracing up, it is a constitutional
medicine producing a radical change in
the system by renovating every particle
of the blood, and so building up from
the foundation. After using this rem
edy the stomach, liver bowels, heart,
kidneys, and even the brains and nerves
acquire uuwonted strength and efficien
cy. enabling these vital organs to per
form all their functions with wonderful
vigor and satisfaction. Therefore, as a
spring medicine, Ayer’s Sarsaparilla has
no equal in the whole range of pharmacy.
The only Sarsaparilla judged worthy of
exhibition at the Chicago World’s Fair.

On Wednesday, 10tli inst., I received
an invitation from Rey. J. S. Askew,
pastor of Jenkitisburg circuit, to spend
Thursday with him at the parsouage,
there was to be an old fashioned quilt
ing. So Thursday morning wife, myself
and two boys were found on our way to
the hospitable little town of Jenkins
burg. The crisp and bracing atmosphere
of a bright October morning made our
ride of five miles very pleasant. On ar
riving at the parsonage we found quite
a company of good ladies of the church
and community had assembled, they
had been considering some time, no
doubt as to bow they would add other
comforts to their faithful pastor and
more faithful wife. So they decided
with the delicacy characteristic of these
noble ladies that their pastor and loved
ones should not suffer with cold during
the coming wiater, so two nice new
quilts had been peiced and all were met
together having a pleasant day with the
pastor and family and finishing the beau
tiful handiwork into something not only
beautiful to the eye but of great useful
ness. And such a dinner. The table lit
erally groaued under its weight of good
things, showing that these noble ladies
of Jenkinsburg are not only skilled in
quilt making but are equally skillful in
the culinary art, there was nothing that
the human body needs or could be rea
sonably wished for that could not be
found on that table, at least a dozen or
more of these good ladies had prepared
dinner before leaving home and when a
dozen such dinners, Mr. Editor, as
these good ladies can provide are brought
together on one table and into one room
you can form some idea of the stacks of
good things that this writer not only
looked at but. Well but I tried to be

S. Askew for the privilege of being pres

of Jenkinsburg for as good dinner as
lias been our good fortune to enjoy in a

Sweetly and apparently without pain
the gentle spirit of Mr. B. W. Collier
passed from earth to Heaven Saturday
night, Oct. 13th, at his home at Indian
Spring. His last day on earth was a
perfect day and a very happy one to him.
He was unusually bright and cheerful
and spoke of the many reasons ho had
for gratitude and thanksgiving. He
was busy during the day attending
church, and looking after the finances of
the church, and the comfort of his pas
tor. He retired in his usual health
about 9 o’clock. Soon after retiring pa
ralysis of the brain attacked him, and
in an hour his soul was in Heaven He
leaves a devoted wife, six sons and three
daughters, besides several grandchildren
who all love and reverence his memory.
No children were ever more devoted to
a parent than were his, and if any differ
ences ever arose, his wise counsel always
prevailed. He was truly a peacemaker.
He used his life for others, thinking little
of himself. His children were all pres
ent at the funeral except three who have
homes in the far west.
Four sons and two grandsons acted as
pall bearers. He w r as followed to the
graye by a large number of mourning
friends, where he was buried with Ma
sonic honors, the funeral having been
preached by Rev. Mr. Hurst, a student
of Mercer and pastor of the Baptist
church at Indian Spring. Mr, Collier
was for many years before the war well
known all over Georgia as the proprie
tor of the celebrated Mclntosh House,
which was destroyed by fire about four
teen years ago. Since which time he
has lived in retirement, surrounded by
his devoted family and ahvays tenderly
cared for by them and their saiutly
Vistors to the now famous Wigwam,
presided over by sons of Mr. Collier,
never failed to seek out the genial and
venerable patriarch, who was always de
lighted to talk of the former glory of
Indian Spring and of the virtues of the
water. No man was better posted in the
history of Georgia, and he numbered
among his acquaintances and friends
many of her most illustrious sons and
daughters. His cordial greeting and
pleasant smile will be long missed by
the visitors to the Spring and many will
doubtless feel that much of the charm
of the place has vanished with him. The
beauty of his Christian character shone
more respleudently in his own home and
in his own family.
Those who by marriage or otherwise
were members of his family, always re
ceived the tenderest consideration. The
writer can give cardinal testimony to
this fact, after a membership in the
family extending over more than a quar
ter of a century.
