President Ilaygood, of Emory College,
meets the assertions of politicians that Geor
gia is in a state of decadence with some .sig-
nificant facts. lie says that in 187 G the
improved lands in the State amounted to
28,737,539 acres. In 1880 the aggregate had
grown to 29,815,581 acics, the increase of
four years being sufficient to provide farms
of 100 acres each for ncarty 11,000 families.
The colored people are buying farms of from
twenty to fiftv acres, and deriving profitable
returns from them.
A bill is before the North Carolina Legis
nature to so amend the law in regard to capi
tal punishment as to take it out of the hands
of the Sheriffs of the various counties, and
cause all such executions to take place in the
State penitentiary, under the supervision of
the Warden, after a lapse of ninety days
from the passage of the sentence. The plan
is favored both on the score of economy and
to put an end to bungling executions, such as
have recently taken place.
It is generally imagined that slave trading
is now almost a tiling of the past, hut that it
still is carried on to a considerable extent in
the Portuguese Indian possessions of Timor
and the adjoining islands is pretty well es
tablished. The regular price of a male slave
from twelve to fifteen years of age is fifty
rupees. A female slave of the same age
fetches from eighty to a hundred rupees. The
natives of the Island of Macassar are the
principal dealers in this traffic. Even some
of tho authorities have kept slaves. The
missionaries have rendered valuable services
iu suppressing the traffic, but organized force
is required to effectually put an end to it.
Canned goods are likely to encounter seri
ous trouble in getting into France. The
French Director General of Customs has in
st.ructcd the different chambers of commerce
throughout that country that the Consulting
Commission of Public Hygiene decides that
there are serious objections, on the ground of
public health, to permitting the sale of food
products in tin cans which are soldered on
the inside with lead alio}-. Directions have
been accordingly issued prohibiting the sale

The monument to the late Duke of Bruns
wick, at Geneva, built at so great a cost, is
showing ominous signs of giving way. It is
built on land which not many years ago was
reclaimed from the lake. Such land is noto-
treacherous, for often beneath it and
only superficially covered there are enormous
holes hollowed out by the ice action when
the Rhone glacier swept over the present site
of Geneva. A few summers ago a long lake
wall at Vevcy disappeared in the night and
left not a truce behind. In the case of the
Brunswick monument every precaution was
taken to assure its safety by placing it on an
exceedingly thick and seemingly solid foun
dation of concrete, but it appears only too
probable from present indications that the
ground underneath is subsiding, and that the
structure is threatened with serious danger,
if not with complete destruction.
A curious experiment is being made in
Chicago by a doctor of the name of De La
Ranta. This is nothing less than an effort to
make a negress white. Re La Banta lias so
far been quite successful, the face of his
patient having bleached considerably by the
use of the lotion with which lie treats her.
The Doctor does not in the least doubt the
complete success of his experiment, but is
afraid that he will not be able to keep his
negress white after he has got her to that
color. II is plan of operation is. lie says, very
simple, and consists simply in destroying the
color on the cuticle of a patient, which makes
a negro black faster than the blood can make
it. If, however, the application of the lotion
is given up, the color returns to the cuticle
and the whitened negro becomes black again
Grass is king of Dakota, the proposed new
State. The Territory lies entirely in the broad
Valley of the Missouri and that of the Red
river of the North. The Black llills, with
untold wealth, are partly within her western
borders, while on the east are lowa and
Minnesota, with their railroads reaching after
her abundant grain crops. Besides gold and
silver, coal is found in the northern and
western districts, and petroleum springs from
the rocks in many places. The climate pre
sents less that is objectionable to the Eastern
emigrant than either of the adjoining States,
its winters are milder and its atmosphere is
of the most remarkable salubrity. The soil
is a rich vegetable mould, ranging from the
most fertile alluvium in the bottom lands—of
which there arc many thousands of acres
along the Missouri and its tributaries—to the
more compact upland prairie* thoroughly well
adapted to the production of wheat and other
grains. Oats, peas, barley, and such small
grains attain the ripest perfection; but the
great and crowning wealth of Dakota, out
ranking gold, wheat, corn, and all else, is her
incomparable crop of grass. Thousands of
square miles of her button lands yield two
tons or more per acre per year at a single
cutting, while away north, in the Red river
valley, four tons per year are secured by two
cuttings. For stock raising, woo! growing,
dairying, grain growing, and the production
of root crops, Dakota possesses unsurpassed

The attention which the Legislature of the
State is paj-ing to one subject is au evidence
of the interest felt in material affairs. Nearly
every newspaper in the .State for sometime
I has been hammering aw a}’ lustily on the mat
ter of public roads. So much lias been said
about it that the Legislature could not ignore
it and consequently a number of statesmen
are devoting their energies to the develop
ment of a road system that will do the people
some good. Various Suggestions have been
made, but the most popular seems to be a
proposition to impose a road tax upon all
kinds of property in the State. It is thought
that there is more justice in this plan than in
any other that could be proposed.
Tennessee will lake a long stride along the
pathway of civilization when she establishes
a good S3's‘em of public highwaj'S. All coun
tries which hold the first rank in civilization
have good public roads. A country with bad
roads at the tail end of the procession. Spain
is a case in point that fully establishes the
correctness of this position.
Here in Georgia a good system of public
highways is one of the greatest necessities of
the hour. We can well afford to delay regis
tration laws, local option bills, and a multi
tude of other measures, but if we desire to
draw immigrants here and make ‘•the wilder
ness blossom as the rose,” we must show the
new comers that we can afford them ordinary
facilities for traveling and carrying their
merchandise to and from market. When we
do this the State wili developc rapidlj-. But
until we give our attention to this important
matter people will continue to confine their
settlements to the cities, towns and spots
along the lines of railway. Let 11s follow the
example of Tennessee, and go to work on
