Dawson, August *20lh.—This commu*
ni.y is at the present timo in a con*
dition of the greatest grief for the
1o8h of one of its most valued mem
bers, Mr. WUlle Janes, who died on last
Monday of typhoid malarial fever. No
death baa occurred here for many yearn
before that left such a sad impression on
all as this death has., Mr. Janes, up to
the time of hie death, had in anticipation
before him a future as brilliant ns any
young man could wish for, but his antici
pations wore untimely cut off, and he
rests to-day in our cemetery. He was one of
the “marked young men” of this period,
for his social and moral qualifications
were of an order that won the love and
esteem of everybody, and bis high intel
ligence made him useful in all of the
spheres of life in which be was placed,
by the death of his father, the late Dr. J.
R. Janes, the responsibility of the
maintenance of a young family of chil
dren was suddenly placed upon him, but
be performed well all of the duties iu
that respect which came before him.
Married comparatively but a short time
since, he leaves a sorrowing wife to mourn
the loss of a most devoted husband, and
a babe who will long feel the want of the
tender care of a doting father. Mr.
Janes hod the confidence of all wrho
knew him, and at the time of bis death
was serving the people ai one of their
Aldormen. As a friend ho was a trno
one, for he never betrayed a confidence,
but lived to love and labor for those
around him, who appreciated true worth.
He was buried oncost Tuesday. So deep
was the grief of all here that an immense
throng followed bis remains to the ceme
tery, and the tribute of rospect was also
shown him by dosing nearly all of the
stores of this city during the funeral exer-
oiseu. We all feel most sensibly this
death, for Mr. Janes was making snob an
impress for good upon the minds and
hearts cf all who knew him that his plaoe
will be hard to fill. In common with
all we tender to each one of the bereaved
ooos our heartfelt sorrow in this great
grief of tbeir's, and earnestly desire that
each one may have grace and strength to
boar with patient resignation this great

We clip from the Atlanta Con

Tho crops this year are unexam

excellence they are without par

In cotton, grasses, corn, fruit, veg

given such harvests.
Will the surplus we have made

Georgia farmer is not a great
saver. Tho very affluence of his
soil and the mildness of his climate
has made him careless and lavish.
