POOR OLD MAN.
Senator Iloar, to whose horrible pro
fanity we recently referred, is suffering
the retribution which some times visits
the wicked before they get iuto the claws
of the devil.
He has a perpetual nightmare and the
fiend who torments him is the dead Con
Ia his speech to the Middlesex Club last
Saturday night, this wicked and wretched
old man screamed out: “What we have
got to do is to get the grip of these south
ern brigadier gem rals off the throats of
the industries of New England.”
The southern brigadier4s easily recog
nized in Congress. He stalks into the
senate and house with a pair of pistols in
his belt and a bowie knife in each hand.
He chews fragments of glass just before
he enters and the blood which trickles
from the corners of his mouth adds im
mensely to the ferocity of his aspect. Be
fore he has been in the capitol ten miu
utes he shoots down live or six Yankees
and stabs t?n or twelve more. In his
milder moments he chokes the life out of
several New England industries. He is a
holy terror at all times. He fights duels
on Pennslyvania avenue every day aud
burns up whole bales of United States
flags after he has tiampled and spit upon
them. The government is utterly power
lt>s. The southern biigadier is on top
and is raising the very devil.
Still there is no hope of relief and we
do not wonder t hat Senator Hoar has the
jim jams —Atlanta Journal.
Old man Hoar should come to Georgia
and look out some midnight and seethe
legions of brigadiers flying through the
air with their tiro brands screaming like
thunder in a cyclone Manasses! Bunker
Iiill! Fiedericsburg! Come down Uncle
Hoar. Come down to the Exposition.

’ TAKEN UNAWARES.
Much attention has been attracted by
the great offer of the Southern Pacific
Company of New Orleans. They are
making a free distribution of books to
advertise their wonderful new train now
running from New Orleans to the Pacific
coast, and which is said to be the finest,
fastest and most luxuriously appointed
train ever constructed. The train con
sists of a composite car, in which is em
braced a barber shop, hath room, library,
cafe and smoking parlor, a dining car, in
which meals are seryed at all h< urs, day
or night, passengers paying only for
what they order; also a full complement
of Pullman’s latest and most magnificent
drawing-room sleeping cars. The speed
of this railway wonder, covering the
yast distance between New Orleans and
Los Angeles in 60 hours, and to San
Francisco in 77 hours, has never been
attempted or equaled. Contrary to the
usual practice of other great railway
lines, no expense will be incurred other
than the customary first-class ticket and
sleeping-car fare for traveling on this
“Now westward Sol has sent the rich
est beams of noon’s high glory.”
And much of civilized America is fol
lowing rapidly in his train, seeking
homes, wealth and health in California.
The great Suuset Rome, Southern Pa
cific, is now the favorite one to those ta
miliar with the different lines of western
travel; and its management, gratefully
recognizing the ready appreciation which
tlie traveling public has shown their
excellent fast-train service, embracing
through Pullman and tourist sleepii g
car facilities in the past, aud which will
be continued from Cincinnati, iJliicago
and New Orleans, have determined to
outdo the most splendid railway achieve
ments, and to provide their patrons with
a combination of luxury and comfort
hitherto unequaled. To this end the
magnificent train, “Sunset Limited,”
taking its name from the solar luminarv,
whose path acioss valley and plain and
over hill and mountain it follows with
the speed of the wind, has been put on
between New Orleans, Los Angeles and
S-n Francisco. Leaving both terminals
every Thursday during the season of
1894-95, passing through the balmiest
regions in all America, delightful even in
January, this “fleeing city” covers gulf
to coast in a trifle over two days. Every
comfort of home is found in the luxurious
vestibuled coaches—dining, sleeping and
composite—w hich comprise “Sunset Lim
ited,” and the scenery along this line is
unsurpassed. For further particulars,

On Friday evening last death claimed
the sweet little three year old son of Mr.

departure from earth to heaven The
funeral services were conducted Satur
day afternoon from the Presbyterian
church by Rev. Mr. Pharr assisted by
Rev. G. W. Gardner, after which his little
body was '.aid to rest in our village cem

Everything worked smoothly in the

to think the matter was a foregone con
