Young Men’s Christian Associ ation In Tilton. As previously announced in these columns a number of the young men of the city met at Tifton Institute last Sunday afternoon ut 3 o’clock to consider the advisability of organiz ing a branch of the Young Meu’s Christian Association. The meeting was called to order by acting secretary B. T. Allen, and, after the customary devotional ser vices, bo explained the objects of tho meeting in a short speech in the course of which lie took occasion to say that, while he did i.ot wish to be understood as inimical to the work, if a permanent organization was de cided upon it would require the ex ercise of mere real moral conrugc and sacrifice of time, money and la bor than the young men of Tifton could possibly give it. He doited his remarks by reading a letter from the acting State Secretary along the same lino of thought and suggesting tiro organization of a young men's union prayer meeting to begin with anil, at the end of twelve months, they could come to a more accurate decision whether a Young Men’s Christian Association was desirable and could bo supported. Remarks were made by Rev. P. II. Cnimpler and others, after which it was decided to hold two prayer meet ings a week at the Methodist church —Tuesday and Friday nights—until the first Sunday in August and invite Secretary Anderson to come to Tif ton, look ovei the field aud advise them what best to Join the premise*.

Tho sturdy democrats of that good old county are pulling themselves together in great shape and urc.organizing campaign clubs in every distriot. The democrats of the several dis tricts of Worth county have thrown off their lethargy and are organizing themselves into democratic clubs. Sumner organized on Thursday of last week with thirty-six members after only a few Lours notice. The democrats of Ty Ty and Poulan have also organized and will do good work for the party in the coming cum* paign. The Gazette is authorized to an- nounoe a great democratic rally aud barbecue next Thursday at Myrtle Spring, near Willingham, Worth county, on Alford A Sloan’s tram road.

In accordance with the announce ment made in these columns several weeks since the annual institute of Irwin county teachers was held last week at Invinville, commencing on Monday morning, duly 11th, and continuing through the 15th. The attendance was small, only fifteen, owing to the fact that many of the teachers in charge of the public schools of Irwiu are from other counties ami had closed their sotiools und gone to their re spective homes for the summer vaca tion. The session, however, conducted by Prof. L. R. Tucker, proved to be a very pleasant and profitable one to those in attendance who took an in terest in tho proceedings. The lectures and discussions were confined to the rudimentary branches of an English education- -orthogra phy, reading, writing, English gram mar, arithmetic and geography, und the soienoe ami practice of teaching.

Such are the /Eoliun whispers which comes to us with the winds and rains and over the tree tops from the fair county of Oolquitt—from the bounty of brave men and fair women, from tho connty of sturdy yeomen, who forever and aye stand shoulder to shoulder with tlimr fel- iowmen in days of trial and trouble. A field day at Moultrie! List Hut, urduy the iron-ribbcil democrats marched in review, with the banners of Cleveland und Russell at their bead. “Down with tlie force bill; down with its advocates, its sympathizers direct and indirect, whether they be third party men or not; and relief from the iniquities of McKinley tariff issuer,” wore the refrains of (.lie throng.

The democrats of the second district tender yon an old-fashioned shake.—Herald. From the Mftcon To)ci;rui«h. The Georgia Southern and Florida railroad was constructed about three years ago through almost an unbrok en forest of pines, standing on lands that were considered worthless by the outside world. The gentlemen interested in this enterprise, however, lmd thoroughly examined the coun try mid knew what they were build ing on; and entrusting their affairs to those in whom they had confidence started out to develop the country and build up farms as fast as they cut down trees. The mumigenient realizing that the task wus a big one set about it in a broad ami liberal spirit They advertised first to tho world that the finest pine timber in Georgia wus to be found along its line, aud said to the saw mill man and maim facta rer, “If you will buy the machinery, we will haul it for you free, and will put you in us much side track us yon need and charge you no rental. This wus certainly an innovation, as it was the first in stance of a railroad company in Geor gia furnishing free side trucks and free tronsporbitibp for machinery. Tho mills along this road give the best evidence of the soundness of this policy. Tho attention of Hie management was then directed to tho melon busi ness, ami to enoourage this class of planter!, they agreed to put them in sidetracks free of rent, und furnish them ours tlmt could he loaded in any direction und to any market. Free sidetracks for melon growers was unothcr new tiling in Georgia, and tlie thousands of cars shipped annually show bow much the people appreciate it. Not content with ibis, they started a farm for the purpose of conduct ing experiments fur the benefit of the planters und to aid in tho rapid settling up of the country with a thrifty agricultural people us fast as tlie mill men should clear away the timber. A visit to tliia farm will open tlie eyes of the doubler, and if lie be a farmer, be will go away with the full determination of improving on the old methods, for indeed it is a mndul farm. And this is not all; for they invit ed the planters along tho line of road to visil this farm, and took them down free in order that they might see for themselves the result of an experiment which they me conduct ing iu tobacco growing, which is des tined to become tho great crop of this section, and which is said by experts to excel any portion of the United States for tobacco growing. Surely tlie phut tors along this road should congratulate themselves that it is under such progressive manage ment, und tlu- people should give it their hearty support and eo-opera- tipji; for no other country in Georgia lias boon so benelltted hy the,building of u railroad through it us lias this along the line of the Ucoigit, South ern und Florida. Should all the roads pursue this policy of helping to build up the people along their lines, that feeling of antagonism of the people towards these corporal tons would pass away, und tlie railroads would not Ire afraid to submit their cases in court to juries taken from citizens along their lines, for the peo ple w6uld not submit to an Injustice being done to the railroad that had been Buch a factor ill building them up and aiding them in their various pursuits. Watch tho courts, and you will see the mutts of a policy of building up. About Onions. 1 Mr. E. II. Tift, who has i farm about two miles northeast o Tifton, on the Tifton mid Northeast-, ern railroad, has made an experiment in onion cnllpre with very gratifying results. From less tlmn an nore of land he has already sold $150 worth of onions, und Hie crop is not yet ex hausted. A similar experiment was made on the Tift Brothers farm, two miles north of Tifton, with equally good results. The onions growh were large and well matured. applications. A Go. Tifton, Os.
