A Town Built on Diamonds.
No town in Africa can boast such rapid
growth as Kimberly, the seat of Government
in Griqualand West, and the headquarters of
the South African diamond diggings. Eleven
3 7 cars ago not a hut stood where now some
IG,OOO people, with a trade of over two mill
ions a year, form one of the most thriving
communities on the African continent. It is
now discovered that the town is built upon
land which promises to be as productive of
diamonds as the neighboring “ diggings,”
which have been the source of its wealth and
the very origin of its existence. Kimberly is
identical with the “ New Rush” Diamond
Settlement of 1870; and the thousands who
flocked to the locality to secure a “claim” in
the valuable reefs, which have been worked
further and further to the east of the site of
the future town, were in such a hurry to seek
their fortune in the diggings that they forgot
to inquire whether the soil on which they
pitched their tents or erected their log-huts
were not equally diamond-iferous.
As the wooden shanties have given place
to more substantial buildings, it has been
found that Kimberly itself lias been built on
a diamond-field, and that the West end or
residential part of the town is as full ofgems
as the actual diggings themselves at the eas
tern or working end of the town. New claims
arc being taken up in all directions, and land
which was beginning to acquire considerable
value as building sites has suddenly assumed
fresh importance as possibly containing some
new “Star of South Africa.” llow many
houses will be pulled down in the search for
the diamonds upon which they are built it
would be ditlicult to say. But it will be in
teresting to watch the future progress of a
town which owes its existence and its subse
quent partial destruction and removal to the
same cause—the abundance of the diamonds
in the midst of which it appears to have
What the Obelisk Suggests.
Discussing the Egyptian obelisk in New
York’s park, the St. Louis Republican calls
attention to the fact that in all that makes
such a relic of antiquity interesting this mon
ument is quite as rich as either its smaller
companion now erected in London or the
larger one in lvome. Here are the striking
suggestions made by our St. Louis contem
“ There was no Greece or Rome when it
was born, and Greece and Rome have come
and gone, and the obelisk still survives. Na
tions now the most civilized and cultured
were then in far deeper and darker barbarism
than the Indians we arc now hurrying toward
the Pacific. The proudest capitals of Europe
to day, if then they existed at all, were a little
collection of mud huts, inhabited by half
naked savages. The hemisphere whose com
mercial metropolis it now graces was not so
much as known to Europe until two thou
sand years after our obelisk saluted the wor
shipers at the Temple of the Sun. Christian
ity is young compared to this sculptured
granite, which Abraham and Moses may have
gazed upon, and which has outlasted the an
cient faith that reared it —a faith then
thought to be eternal. The religion, the
philosophy, the polities and the art to which
it once belonged are now the puzzle of schol
ars and antiquarians ; yet here is the obelisk,
worn, indeed, by the assaults of time, but
still as firm and strong as when it left the
hands of the workmen of Syenc. How strange,
how sadly suggestive, that a bit of carved
stone has so much more immortality in it
than the noblest products of the immortal
intellect! Our obelisk has witnessed the
rise and fall of the mightiest empires earth
has seen, lias it crossed 10,000 miles of
ocean to witness the marvelous growth, the
glorious consummation and the final decay of
the greatest republic earth has seen ? It has
stood by the death beds of Egypt, Assyria,
Persia, Greece and Rome. Who dares to say
it will not stapd by ours ?”
JEFFERSON. JACKSON COUNTY. GA., FRIDAY, MARCH 4. 1881.
Feeding Cows for Milk.
A New Jersey correspondent of the Coun
try Gentleman , writing on the subject of feed
ing cows for milk, $a3 7 s that his experience
tcacl;es him that the food that is good for
butter is also good for milk. lie finds it
more profitable to turn his milk into butter,
as bis customers do not so readi 13” recognize
the difference between good and inferior milk
Us between good and bad butter. With them
milk is milk, and if a competitor couics
around with the commonest kind, at five cents
a quart, UIC3 7 will give up taking milk that
yields twenty per cent, more cream, if it costs
six cents a quart. But as other dairy farmers
may have customers with better tastes, the
writer referred to gives his experience as to
the best feed. He says:
"If one wants a large quantity of fairly
good, well flavored milk for sale, be will find
the best and cheapest food to consist of su
gar beets, or mangels cut and sprinkled with
wheat shorts, or sharps, or bran, and the best
clover luyy or corn fodder cut and mixed
with a thin slop of steeped malt sprouts and
cotton seed meal or corn meal. I have fed
my milking cows as follows: Morning feed,
cut hay or cornstalks, wetted with the above
mentioned slop, made as follows : Two quarts
of malt sprouts and one quart of cotton seed
meal or corn meal per head, soaked in water
in a barrel for twelve hours. This slop is
poured over the cut fodder in a mixing box,
and the whole mixed, until the slop is equally
distributed ; then a jieaped bushel basket is
given to each cow. Any cow that is a spe
cialty good feeder, and will pay for it, is
treated to a quart or so of ground feed of
corn and rye bran in addition, scattered over
her mess. At noon, a peck per head of cut
sugar beets or mangels, sprinkled with a
quart of the above ground, is given. At night
the morning feed is repeated. But if I could
not get six cents a quart for milk, I would
double the allowance of roots, giving no meal
with them, and give malt sprouts and bran,
or only coarse wheat or rye middlings, made
into the slop above described. This will
make as much or more milk of good salable
quality, but not so much cream. If one is
near a brewery, and can procure brewers’
grains, these are an excellent and wholesome
food when mixed with corn meal. A bushel
a day, with four quarts of corn meal, given
to a large cow, with liay and fodder, will pro
duce a copious yield of rich-flavored milk, of
a good bod} r and color, although not rich in
cream ; but a thick, creamy-looking milk,
with only five per cent, of cream, will be more
satisfactory to the consumer than pure Jcrse3 r
milk with twenty-five per cent, of cream, but
which is thin and blue when the cream is
taken off. This should not be forgotten
when considering the feeding of cows for
milk. The best cows for a milk dairy arc
large grades of Short-Horn, or Dutch, and
native, as these yield a large flow of milk,
not rich in cream, but thick and of rich color.
Food is a necessary condition, but if it is not
put into the right kind of milk machines, it is
wasted, or diverted from its most profitable
Mysteries of a Bee-Hive.
A life-time might be spent in investigating
the mysteries hidden in a bee-hive, and still
half the secrets would be undiscovered. The
formation of the cell has long been a cele
brated problem for the mathematician, while
the changes which the honey undergoes offer
at least an equal interest to the chemist. Ev
er}’ one knows what honey fresh from comb
is like. It is a clear yellow 9yrup, without a
trace of solid sugar in it. Upon straining,
however, it gradually assumes a crystalline
appearance—it candies, as the saying is, and
ultimately becomes a solid lump of sugar. It
has ro been suspected that this change was
due to a photographic action ; that the same
agent which alters the molecular arrangement
of the iodine of silver on the excited collo
dion plate, and determines the formation of
camphor and iodine crystals in a bottle,
causes the syrup-honey to assume a crystal
line form. This, however, is the case. M.
Schcibler has inclosed honey in stoppered
flasks, some of which he has kept in perfect
darkness, while others have been exposed to
the light. The invariable results have been
that the sunned portion rapidly crystallized,
while that kept in the dark has remained per
fectly liquid. We now see why bees work in
perfect darkness, and why they are so careful
to obscure the glass windows which arc some
times placed in their hives. The existence
of their young depends on the liquidity of
saccharine food presented to them ; and if
light wore allowed access to the syrup it
would gradually acquire a more or less solid
consistency ; it would seal up the cells, and
in all probability prove fatal to the inmates
of the hive.
Woman as an Inventor.
Some time since Dr. Clark, of Troy, pub
lished a series of political articles, or
pamphlets, in which he demonstrated the
unfitness of women for exercising the right
of voting by urging, among other things, their
lack of invention, insisting that to the better
sex had not been given, apparently, the power
to invent any of the numberless household
appliances which have found their way into
American homes. The subject has since been
discussed, and it is mentioned that women
obtain from the United States Government
an average of about sixty patents yearly. As
might be expected, most of them relate to
lightening women's work. Among them are
a jar-lifter, a bag-holder, a pillow-sham hold
er, a dress protector, two dustpans, a washing
machine, a fluting iron, a dress chart, a fish
boner, a sleeve adjuster, a lap table, a sewing
machine treadle, a wash-basin, an iron heater
and irons, a garment stiffener, a folding chair,
a wardrobe bed, a weather-strip, a churn, an
invalid's bed, a strainer, a milk-cooler, a sofa
bed, a dipper, a paper dish and a plaiting
device. In a patent law suit, a woman (Helen
M. McDonald) conducted her own case and
won it, establishing her right to her skirt
protector, planting an injunction, on a bold
infringement, and utterly routing one of the
most distinguished of tiic patent law bar
FOR TIIE PEOPLE.
The present year will witness the inaugu
ration, and possibly the completion of a
number of the most colossal projects that
ever engaged the attention and enlisted the
energies of mankind.
A number of submarine cables are bcin"
laid in order to establish instantaneous com
munication between the most distant points.
The Panama and Nicaragua canals will
undoubtedly be constructed.
A ship railway will be built across the
Isthmus of Tckuancpcc, which will enable
ships of any size to be transported from one
ocean to the other.
A system of railways will be extended
from this country into Mexico, and the South
ern, Northern and Canadian Pacific railwavs
will be finished.
An American slock company lias been
formed for the building of one hundred iron
steamships for coast, river and lake naviga
These great internal improvements arc by
no means confined to this country. France
expects to spend one billion dollars this year
on canals and railways. Russia proposed to
push a railway through Central Asia. China
is going to establish a railway 8} r stcm. In
Africa a railway will be stretched through the
great Sahara, and it is the determination of
the French to occupy all Northeast Africa.
A glance at the nature of these enteprises
will convince an} 7 one that we arc on UlO eve
of remarkable movements in the industrial
and commercial world. Within the next few
3'ears many of the greatest problems of our
complex civilization will be solved, and it
behooves every man to be up and doing, and
to put forth the best work of both brain and
hand. This is emphatically the age of work !
He who "lags superfluous on the stage*’ will
inevitably be pushed to the wall. The doc
trine of the " survival of the fittest” prevails
everywhere, and the rising generation is thor
oughly imbued with utilitarian ideas. Our
young men who are just entering upon a busy
life will do well to note the drift of material
affairs and go with the tide.— Exchange .
The Trade Winds.
The earth turns on its axis from west to
cast, and with it rotates daity the envelope
of the atmosphere. The velocity of rotation
at the equator is something over 1,000 miles
an hour ; at thirty degrees distance it is about
150 miles less. In higher latitudes it is still
less, at the poles nothing. Therefore, when
ever the air moves north or south on the sur
face of the earth, it will carry witli it less or
greater velocity of the rotation than the place
it passes over, and will turn in an easterly or
westerly wind, according as it approaches or
recedes from the equator. In the region of
the sun’s greatest heat, the air, rarified, and
lighted, is continually rising, and cooler cur
rents come in on both sides to take the place
of the ascending volume. As these side
currents come from a distance of about thirt3 r
degrees from the equator, they have at a
starting, an eastward velocity of many miles
an hour less than the localities they will
eventually reach. Consequently they will
appear to lag behind in all the course of their
progress to the equator—that is, they will
have a easterly motion united with their
north and south movements. These are the
great trade winds, blowing constantly from
the northeast on this side, and the southwest
on the other side of the equator. —London
The debt of England is equal to SIOO for
each man, woman and child in the country.
The debt of the United States of America
is less than S4O for each person in the coun
In England bonds arc now sold in sums of
ten pounds, or SSO, and over. The same is
true in this country.
British Funds pay only three and a half
per cent, interest, and as our four per cent,
bonds are more than ten per cent, above par,
an investor gets only three and a half per
cent, for his money.
The British debt was increased more than
five hundred millions of dollars by the Amer
ican Revolutionary War. The European war
that ended in 1815 raised the debt to eight
hundred and sixty millions of pounds—more
than four thousand millions of dollars.
The debts of this and every other country
are created and increased by t oar, It is now
clearly understood that intemperance is the
greatest curse of any country in a time of
peace. The taxation required to pay the
interest on the National Debt is not nearly
so great as the tax and loss occasioned by
the intemperate use of intoxicating drinks.
Locusts in 1881.
There are two breeds of periodical locusts,
one appearing once in 17 j'ears and the other
once in 13 years. The earliest appearance
of the 17-year locusts iu this country, so far
as the records go, was in 1634, at Plymouth,
Mass., and they have not failed to appear
once in 17 years ever since. Both breeds
wili appear this j'car, but not in the same lo
calities. Professor Riley, the entomologist,
says that the 17-year locusts will abound next
June in Marquette and Green Lake counties,
Wis.; in the neighborhood of Wheeling,
West Va., and probably in Maryland, Virgin
ia, and the District of Columbia. They may
also appear, he says, in the west part of
North Carolina, in Northeastern Ohio, Lan
caster county, Penn., and Westchester coun
ty, N. Y. The Professor says that the 13
year brood will probably be seen in Southern
Illinois, in all of Missouri except the north
west corner, in Louisiana, Arkansas, Indian
Territory, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi,
Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and
South Carolina. The two kinds of locusts
ditfer very little in appearance,”

OFFICE COUNTY SCHOOL COMMISSIONER. >
Jefferson, Jackson County, Ceokoia, February 7th. ISM. f
To the Grand Jury , Spring Term Jackson Superior Court , ISST;
Okn'TljEmkx :—ln accordance with an Act. approved February -Ist, 1577. I have the honor t<*
herewith present you my Annual Report for the ISSO, together with my books ami papers for
Our Public School System has been in operation ten years, a period of time sutlictent. under or
dinary circumstances, to fully test its merits. An impartial survey of the work done will. 1 think,
convince any intelligent mind that while much good has been accomplished, the System will remain
a comparative failure until enough money is appropriated to make the Schools entirely free for
whatevet length of time it is proposed to run them.
I am fully aware of the fact that our school law has much opposition in the county, and those
who have in charge its administration, have many difficulties to encounter of which the public
know almost nothing. For instance, many worthy teachers are seriously censured ; the school law
is considered utterly worthless ; and its officers meet with ridicule and unjust accusations, because
our schools are not more successful. This, and much moro is said without stopping to consider
that the average attendance of pupils actually enrolled is only one and a half months in twelve,
and that a large per ccntagc of our school population never enter the schools at all. 1 have said
this much to direct your attention to the fact that, if we have failures, teachers and school officers,
are not wholly responsible for them.
Hut, notwithstanding the serious defects of our School System, I have, by a close comparison
with the school laws of almost every State in the Union, and with those of the most important and
powerful foreign countries, found that ours, with one exception, the monetary feature just mention
ed, compares favorably with the best. The fact is, no system can he devised that will meet the
views of the age and country in which we live. Generations must conform to systems—not sys
tems to generations.
In view of tiie.se facts, and because our System, in some form, is an organic law of the State, 1
have tried, as County School Commissioner, under the auspices of ail intelligent Hoard .of Educa
tion, to make all of il I could under the circumstances. How far 1 have succeeded remains for you
to say after a close examination of the work done.
For a detail of this work I respectfully refer you to the Hecord of my official actions, pages
217 to 279 inclusive. As to whether this work has been done in accordance with law, I also refer
you to Minutes of the Hoard of Education, pages (il to 77 inclusive, together with the law itself, and
the Instructions of the State School Commissioner, copies of which are herewith presented.
Hy reference to the Record, page 274, you will find the sum ami sources from which the school
revenue is derived, and the sum incidental to its disbursement, which will bo found to be less than
six per cent, of the whole sum received.
Hy reference to the accompanying Annual Report of the State School Commissioner, taken in
connection with the late census, you will find that in proportion to population, as many schools
have been established in Jackson county, and as many pupils enrolled in them, as in any other coun
ty in the Slate, and many more than in a large majority of similar School Districts.
As regards the disbursement of tlie School Fund, which is, of course, the most important feature
for your consideration, 1 have, as a matter of convenience to you, prepared the following Table,
which will, 1 confidently believe, give you an entirely correct statement of all the particulars, at
one view. And when compared with the accompanying Public School Teachers Reports, from No.
1 to No. 75, and with the Teacher’s Accounts and Vouchers herewith presented from No. 1 to 77,
inclusive. 1 think the Table will be found to cover every essential feature necessary to a full un
derstanding of the disbursement of the Public School Fund for the year 1880.
The first part of the Table gives General Statistics for the entire county, which is hy law made a
school district, other divisions being sub-districts. The first column of the second part, gives teach
ers names and theirnumber; the 2d shows the rates of their monthly compensation ; the fid, their
average attendance; the 4th, their whole accounts ; and sth, their pro rata , which will be found to
be GO per cent, of all the teachers accounts.

successful newspaper,” said Uncle Jabez,
leaning his chin on his cane and glancing on

“ Well, they commenced as a weekly, grew
to be a tri-weekly, and have now become
