Married, in Dallas, Texas, at the Grand

EiF'Our city was in imminent peril last
Tuesday. There was but a single piece of
meat for sale in town, weighing four or five
pounds, and it belonged to Ancc Miller, who
left his store, when an old sow came along
and carried the precious piece of meat toll'.
Then there was a lively and exciting race,
for meat was meat, and could bring the money.
The old hog was finally run down, kicked in
the side, and when she went to squeal out
her disapproval of the whole proceedings, she
dropped the piece of Chicago hog and trotted
E gPOur readers will remember that in our
last issue we noted the fact that the wind on
t he preceding Thursday had seriously injured
several houses on a farm about a mile from
town. Since then we have learned that it
blew down a cabin near Maysviile, besides
doing other damage. And at Wintervillc,
six miles below Athens, on the Georgia rail
road, a regular cyclone passed near the town,
doing immense damage to cotton and other
crops in the fields. From there it passed on
over into Madison county, carrying destruc
tion wherever it touched the earth.
L<PYou will please note the advertisement
of M. B. McGint3 r *s furniture store. We
visited this mammoth concern a week or two
since, and the stock was shown to us by the
manager, Mr. Boone. Atlanta may have
large furniture stores, but they cannot compare
with McGinty’s, cither in the size of the stock
they carry or in prices. Upon comparing
prices, we find, from actual facts, that
the people of this county can buy from
McGinly for less, and save the freight from
Atlanta. This is no assertion, but is based
upon a comparison of the prices of identical
goods from a bill bought in Atlanta. Then,
when you want furniture, don’t go to Atlanta
to buy when you can get what you want for
less and save freight by going to Athens.
SfPßosc Duke lias been making things
lively since his appointment as Deputy United
States Marshal. It was thought by many
that it was an empty honor; that there were
no violators of the revenue laws in these parts.
But the contrary is evident, as recent develop
ments will show. Mr. Duke has already
executed several warrants for the arrest of
parties in our midst, and on last Saturday
morning, just before daj T ANARUS, he called at the
house of Bill Watson, col’d, for the purpose
of taking him in tow, but William, who was
on the alert, succeeded in making his escape
by knocking out a section of the side of his
domicile, assisted by his faithful wife, who,
in order to assist in the escape, knocked a
hull’s eye lantern out of the hands of tfle
would-be captors, putting out all the light
that was available. The said William is a
bard one to catch, as this is the second time
that lie has escaped from the clutches of the
olllcers, and had just commenced to get tame.

Notes from Thompson’s Gin.
Editor Herald :—Before the war we used
to go to the corn shuckings, and the boss of
the corn pile would have on hand a great big
jug full of good old corn whisky, made by
Frank , or somebody else, and as soon
as the negroes and low down white trash got
two or three drinks apiece, the}' would com
mence to sing, “Old Master's got anew gin,
corn gwine along.” &c.
The Thompson Brothers have bought anew
gin, and the cotton is gwine along, &c. Well
Possibly no shoal in Jackson county has
a brighter future than this one. Since the
purchase of the new gin, we arc crowded day
It’s amusing to see the spectators —espe-
cially the darkies—viewing our gin. It is a
two-storied affair. Wc put the cotton up into
a hopper, and it is then passed by iron spikes
down into the gin. This hopper is so ar
ranged by shackle bars that it shakes out all
the dust, the buttons off the little boys’
breeches, loose nails, Barlow pocket knives
and cat— Well, it’s a fine gin, and makes
the best sample I ever saw.
Tim is here to weigh the cotton for the
boys, and sometimes we hear him smile at a
distance of two and a half miles. Tim must,
lie hollow clean down to his knees.
Tom Ross passes by every few days, aud
takes a peep into the lint room, goes off smil
ing. as much as to sa\\ “that will do, boys.”
Our sample made at this gin lias astonished

It has been intimated by parties who de
sire to injure my business, that I have been
dealing in whisky at my place of business in
Harmony Grove. I desire to state that such
is not the truth, and that the person or per
sons who say that I am or have been selling
whisky in that place, tell a most malicious

HOW TO TREAT YOUR WATCH.
Wind it up at the same time every day. Keep
it in as even a temperature as possible. Sudden
transition from heat to cold may cause the main
spring to break. If you would keep it clean nev
er put it in any pocket except one of leather.
Those pockets which are lined with cloth, cotton
or calico, give by the constant friction a certain
Huff, which enters most Watch Cases and makes
its way to the delicate parts of the watch. Sec
that the pocket is turned and cleaned often, and
take an old linen handkerchief and wipe carefully
all the dust from under the backs, bezel and cap
of the case. But above all you must be sure that
the Case iits firmly. and to be sure of this, select
one where the parts (center backs, cap, Ac.) arc
each made from one piece of metal.
The JAMES BOSS’ Patent Stiffened oit
filled Cold Watch Case is so made, and not
only does such a Watch Case become stronger
and fit more perfectly, but it enables the manu
facturer to turn and form three pieces of metal
(the outer ones being gold and the inner one of an
inferior metal) into shape for the round parts,
making to all appearaces and practical purposes
just as good a Watch Case as the solid gold, at
about one-half the cost to the purchaser.
There arc nearly one hundred thousand of these
Watch Cases now carried, and their good qualities
are acknowledged by the same number of happy

Elizabeth Elrod, daughter of Jacob Elrod,
died at her father's residence, in Jackson county,
Ga.. August 20th, 1881. She professed religion
and joined the Methodist church when a child, and
from that time forward, until the hour that Death
claimed her as his victim, lived a consistent Chris
tian life. Her life was one of earnest Christian
work. Whatever she felt to he her duty as a child
of God she entered into the discharge of it with
that modesty that made one feel that there was
nothing haughty in her character. She was con
tent to walk in the paths that the Master appoint
ed for her. The latter portion of her life was that
of suffering and privation, yet there were nomur
ni firings that fell from her lips, but often the
smile of cheerfulness would beam in her face.
Her inmost feelings werj that her work was done,
and she had nothing to do but to die to be with
Christ, and she felt it would be far better than to
remain absent from llim in the flesh. She prayed
earnestly for the loved ones that she was leaving
behind. Just before she died, she said to those
around her that Jesus was with her, and the
angels beckoned her to the home of the good.
Love—pure, deep, ardent and holy—characterized
her life. A.
