Cecil, September 20.—This seems
<to be an “off year” in politics. Eve
rybody is off tbo track and running
■ like blazes. We don’t read tbe pa
pers a' week to find out that the
American people arc immensely rot-
The political mud-slingcr is now, at
his best. To own tlint your political
■opponent is a gentleman is “fresh,’
We Berrien yelpers are about the
only people who daro to advance an
opinion. The supercilious nowspa
pers who so deftly call for fair play,
while playing foul, deserve to lose
the patronage of every'man whom
they insult. Jj for one have uo use
for a newspapor which descends to
low abuse instead of argument. - A
government by one political party is
islwajp a corrupt tyranny.
Democracy is a government by the
people and for tho people, securing
ibe greatest good to the greatest major
ity. Free speech is necessary to its
maintenance. I am buoIi a democrat.
Air. II, H. ICnight, the embryo
representative from Berried county,
is airing himself in Cecil today.
Ilchry does not seem tired and I pre
sume, therefore, ho is just walking
ahead of his competitor. Thus it
«vor is with the people’s choice.
And still it rains, an if tho stare

Spauks, September 21.—Possibly
somo reader of the gallant .Gazette
would like a line or two from this
part of the moral, vinoyurib
A great many improvements have
been mads in Sparks since my last
communication, so many that 1 can'
not moulion all of them, but of the
more recent is the establishment of
ginnery by Martin S. MoCranic, who
is well equipped and prepared to gin
» both long and short staple notion on
Another is the purchase and com
pletion of the Gan McKinney resi
dence, near the Afethodisl church by
r. C. W. 0. Sutton,
Again, Rev. B. W. Huckabee has;
qiureliasod the store room formerly
owned by Dr. I. .1. Goodman, on the
corner of Goodman and Colquitt
streets, ffnd added considerable to its
ppearanco by increasing the length
rid painting the interior.
The targe two-story building on
the comer of Goodman and Colquitt
Streets, being erected hy Air. 8.
Whitehurst, will add no little to the
appearance of the town. The lower
floor will contain two largo and
l^jbandsome stow rqofljg. The build
ing will bo renewed with brick.
Another improvement, to which
s, is ilie
what now, in part, but Is appreciated
by patrons and pupils. He is a
young man of high moral character
and thoroughly capable of. teaching
the young idea how to shoot.
Among tho contemplated improve
ments of the town I mention, first,
that long looked for hotel, to
he erected on tho hotel site which
fronts Patterson avenue near the de
pot. This, indoed, is an old song,
but it conics this time witli a new
chorus, Dr. I. ,T. Goodman and
Messrs. C. II. Beckwith, W. .1. Rog
ers and J. Z. Elliott have formed
themselves into a stock company to
build it. They are nil gentlemen of
energy who have long since become
imbued with tho 'sentiment' of'tlial
most appropriate stanza, which says;
“It Is neither rank, birth nor estate,
But the glt-np-and-glt that makes men
There is no dependence on a build
ing and loan association witli this
company, the money is in hand and
work will commence at once.
And again, Mr. John A. Kountrco
authorizes mo to say that ho will es
tablish rice hulling machinery hero
of the latest and most improved
patent. This is a certainty, ns will
bo attested by all who are acquainted
witli Mr. Rountree; ho never does
things hy halves, and his pocket-
book is a sufficient vouchor for the
assertion. Rice growers nlon^ the
Georgia Southern mid Florida will
soon hear from Air. Rountree. lie
will solicit shipments of rough rico,
and will clean it at reduced rates.
Other improvements could be men
turned. but I-wiU-not-newq-suffice -to
say: tlint just so sure as taH oaks
grow- from little acorns so sure will
Sparks grow into a flourishing town.
It lias never tiikoii a backward step
since its founding.’ Notwithstanding
tbo odds she has Imd to battle against
saying nothing of tho hardness of
the times, her schools, her churches
and. her mercantile business aro all
in a prosperous condition.
Polities seems to have died out to
somo extent until the people’s party
senatorial convention met at Valdos
ta last Saturday and shoved up the
chunks and made the obi pot boil up

serene.” <)u> ,Jcm

Owe, September 20—I w«rit to
Moultrie last Saturday to attend ’tin-

nominate a candidate to represent
the-'county In the next legislature.
After several ballots Hon. J. B, Nor

His opponent is ohl inan James Mur
phy, a life-long republican. His past
political affiliations is well known to
ovory man in the county. Hurrah

A third party man of this county
went to a democrat to borrow some
money. Tbe democrat repliod that
he did not have the money to spare.
The third partyile the democrat that
if ho would turn and help his party
into power they would bring in plen
ty. of money. The democrat (Hen
told tbe third parlyito to go back
borne and count up tho days lie had
lost advocating the third party and
calculate if it was not trim if tie had
worked these days ho would not
have need-to Iwrrow any money; also
that there was plenty of money to
loan in tho bank at Camilla. Tho
third par'tyitc wen> to Camilla to see
if wimt bad been told him n aa true.
He found plonty of money for (bat
purpose, so he told tho banker lie
wanted to borrow $12fi. The hanker
told him lie could get it, but when
he fixed up the note tins bmikor asked
the third partyile who .was hi* «d-
intcral? Tho third’ partyito then
dropped his head, studied a litiic,
arid, said ho bditvod he would not
take any money just now. So he
comes back home and tell* alt hw
people that there was ptcnly of mon
ey in the Camilla bank and ait they
needed was a collateral dub, begging
iris friend* to turn over from the
third party to a collateral club of
which ho wanted to be president.
From what I can learn his collateral
club is a failure up to date.
