The Sun for 1882 will make its fifteenth
annual revolution under the present man
agement, shining, as always, for all, big
and little, mean and gracious, contented
and unhappy, Republican and Democratic,
depraved and virtuous, intelligent and
obtuse. The Sun’s light is for mankind
and womankind of every sort; but its ge

hot discomfort on the blistering backs of
the persistently wicked.
Tub .Sun of 1808 was a newspaper of a
new kind. It discarded many of the
forms, ami a multitude of the superfluous
words and phrases of ancient journalism.
It undertook to report in a fresh, succinct,
unconventional way all the news of the
world, omitting no event of human inter
est, and commenting upon affairs with the
fearlessness of absolute independence.
The success of this experiment was the
success of Tiik Sun. It effected a per
manent change in the style of American
newspapers. Every important journal
established in this country in the dozen
years past has been modelled after The
Sun. Ever}/ - important journal already
existing has hem modified and bettered
by the force of The Sun’s example.
The Sun of 1882 will be the same out

abundant prosperity affords, we shall

We shall print all the news, putting it

importance, not by the traditional yard
stick, but by its real interest to the peo

is not the first consideration with The

reporting we get the particulars, whether
in Brooklyn or in Bokhara.
In politics wc have decided opinions;
and arc accustomed to express them in
language that cau be understood. We

Bill Arp’s Letter,
IN WHICH HE CONSIDERS THINGS IN
Christmas is at hand, and no winter
to speak of yet; no cold rains or
howling winds ; no heavy drains upon
the farmer’s small store of corn and
provender. Providence is kind, not
withstanding the short crops, and our
people are hopeful of getting through
the winter and starting anew at plant
ing time. Poor people saw a hard
struggle ahead, and the good man was
gloomy and sad when he thought of
the lack of means to keep wife and
children from want and tiie wolf from
the door. The poor get more sympa
thy than help, and have long since
learned to do without when they can
not buy. Merchants and guano men
don’t know what Contending forces
have worked upon the farmer’s mind
and what sacrifice of comfort he has
Had to make to pay for advances—how
lie has got. to pinch himself and his
Tamil} 7 , and even his stock, to struggle
through the winter that is yet to come.
But after ail there seems to be a de
liverance not counted on, for here are
the iron works and manganeese works
and the ear factory and the saw mills
■md the new railroads that want labor
and teams and pay good prices, and
our people are going to them from all
directions. The car factory at Car
tersviile has one hundred and fifty
hands and turns ont thirty cars a
week. The manganeese mines give
employment to as many more, and
there are hundreds at the furnaces.
The thirty four steam saw mills in the
county of Polk have not less than five
hundred hands. Mr. West’s railroad
increases its force all the time as it
increases its business, and from my
observaf on is the best paying road in
the State and about the best managed.
Fhen there are the copper mines near
Roekmart that help out amazingly,
'or they employ lots of men and sixty
mules’; and have just built the biggest
stable I ever saw. But the biggest
Hiing of all is Mr. Cole’s railroad from
Rome to Atlanta, which feeds and
pays directly and indirectly at least
wo thousand people. Besides the
grading that is going on there are
scores of countrymen gelling crossties
and timber for bridges and trestles
and stone for culverts. All along the
ine I see the natives at work cutting
stocks and hauling them. I hear the
sound of a thousand axes cutting and,
hewing erosstics. I see the hutahic
farmers hauling them down steep hills
and mountain sides where a wagon
couldent go. I asked Loomis, who is
one of the contractors on the line, how
those people were going to get those
ties up out of the wilderness, and be
said they was going to snig’em down
on a blizzard. Loomis is a buckeye
and when I told him I reckon it wa
a lizzard he said well it was a lizzard.
or a blizzard or a gizzard or some
such conti ivance. There is a power
of money paid out every week by this
company, and itall comes from abroad,
and all helps our people. It will save

Our wagon makers used to charge us
sl2 * 00 for a pretty good wagon, but
the Ya ikees commenced selling us a
better one for SIOO 00, and we bought
’em and dried up our own raeehanicks
and they went, at some other business.
Now, if tariff is right in principle, wc
ought to have put a tax of $25 on
every Yankee wagon that wa3 brought
here. Just so with Western meat and
corn. Now, if an Englishman will
sell us as good a wagon for $75 and
ns good an ax for half the price it
looks like we ought to be allowed to
buy ’em. One time there was an old
man who had ten children and lots of
grandchildren, and one of his boys
was a shoe maker, and the old man
said that all the other children should
buy their shoes from Bob at two dol
lars a pair just to encourage him and
keep the money in the family. Every
day there was some outsiders come
knocking at the outside gate with just
as good shoes at a dollar a pair, hut
-till they all had to buy from Bo!) and
Bob got rich o(F of his own kinfolks,
and tfiat’s the way with the tariff. It
is a good thing for Bob but mighty
hard on the rest of the family. In
this portion of the vineyard there are
fifty consumers to one manufacturer,
and it seems to me the majority ought
to have the most consideration. Mr.
Young and Mr. Cogin, who run the
Augusta and Columbus factories, say
that the South can make cotton goods
eight dollars a bale cheaper than the
North, but the tariff enables the North
to make ten per cent, interest, while
the South makes twenty. Now, if
the}- will reduce the tariff the South
can still make ten per cent, and the
North wouldn’t make anything, and
so they would pull up stakes and come
down here with their machinery, and
every steam and water power in tiiis
region would be dotted with their fac
tones, and that is just what we want.
We want more industry add more
opportnnies for our boys and our girls,
and we want our cotton worked up at
home and that will give us cheaper
uoods, for we wont have to pay freight
both ways. They talk a gic.ff deal
about a tariff for revenue only, but I
have never seen one yet that liidnt
prove to be a tariff for protection and
1 never will. It is all a complicated
piece of machinery fixed up by politi
cians to get to congress and they stay
there and the poor consumers dout
know anything about it. Jesso. In
the good old honest days when the
masses of the people made nearly
ever) thing at home it didn’t matter so
much, but it does now. I was a think
ing of the days when we used to wear
country jeans and home-made shoes
and wool hats and drank water out of
a clean gourd instead of a silverdipper.
and sat in split bottom chairs —the best
chair in tile wori l—and lived in houses
we were not afraid of. Ido hate to
be afraid of a house when I go in it.
I was thinking of the times when the
boys went to mill and chopped the fire
wood and wore home-made galluses
and made balls out of old rubber shoe*
and played marbles without fudging
and called up doodle bugs out of their
sand holes. The boys now are too
smart for the like of that. They know
more than'we know, and by the time
they are grown they will know it all
and quit. Jesso. But still I am
hopeful. There is always some good
seed in the basket, and may be the
old stock wont run out entirely.
And now, Mr. Editor, let me say
adieu to you and your readers. Adieu
for a season. I don’t know how long,
but I have long suspected 1 was writ
ing 100 much —keeping my pen before
the people too long—wearying them

oonoe't, from which may the good
Lord deliver me. In parting wi h you,
let me say thanks for your patience,
your courtesy to me and my pen, and
to say, besides, that if I have ever been

Wife Fell Out .
The oftmade assertion that “pro
fcssional” rivalry is nowhere so letter
among the medical fraternity is
aptly exemplified by the facts in a
divorce case filed in one of our courts
the other day.
It, seems that Dr. Smcdburv, of the
U n.ed n. atesXavy, was married about
i cc- months ago to a lovely young
San Josie lady, to whom he had been
engaged for a long time and who pas
sionately returned his affection. A
few months after his marriage the
Doctor was called to join his ship in
the Asiatic squad,on, and bom one
emergency or another was kept abroad
three \-eara, arriving in this city only
about a month ago. During his absence
his wife determined to employ the
interval of their long separation by
; studying medicine, a surprise which
she hoped would delight her husband
on his return. Unfortunately, how
ever, she entered a homoeopathic
college, her husband being of the
allopathic persuasion. Her desire was
to graduate he fore her better-half re
turned, which she succeeded in doing.
The doctor hail hardly time to ex
change greetings with his overjoyed
partner on the day of his arrival, when
their rejoicings were interrupted by a
messenger who came rushing in to say 7
that a man had fallen out of a four
story window around the block, and
for whom a physician was needed at
once. The husband had hardly reached
the ground when he discovered his wife
already on hand and engaged in con
sulting the patient's pulse.
” What does this mean ?” said the
*’ Why. I forgot to tell you, darling,”
explained his wife. “You see lam a

“And so you have actually 7 been

“Don't be rude, ray dear,” replied the
female practitioner. “ You can’t ex
pcct to keep up with the march of
science in Asia. Just stand back a
moment and let me save the patient.”
“ Save fiddlesticks,” snapped the
allopath. “ Woman, go home at once,
and cease trifling with human life. Or,
perhaps, yon had better scrape lint
while I resuscitate the subject.”
“ Why 7 don’t yon two quit fighting
and go to work ?” asked the victim's
wife, who had just made up her mind
that she wouldn’t look well in black.
“When this female person is re
moved,” said Dr. S., stiflly, “ I shall
proceed in the regular way.”
“ I will not. take the case, or be an
swerable for the consequences until
that old fogy withdraws,” rejoined
Doctress S., haughtily.

somebody announced that the man
was dead, and the police arrested the

Keeping I'ne Head Clean.
Keeping the head perfectly clean is
a great aid to health. A distinguish
ed physician, who has spent much of
his time at quarantine, said that a
person whose head was thoroughly
washed every day. rarely took conta
gious diseases, but where the hair was
allowed to become dirty and matted
it was hardly 7 possible to escape infec
tion. Many persons find speedy re
lief for nervous headache by washing
the head thoroughly in weak soda wa
ter. \Ye have known a’most
wholly cured in ten minutes by this
simple remedy. A friend finds it the
greatest relief in eases of “ rose cold,”

washing of the hair. Thediead should
lie thoroughly dried afterward, and
avoid draughts of air for a little while.

“Well, well, well." sail Mr. Spoo
