Yesterday morning the work of
[railing the Amerious, Preston,
.nd Iitimpkin railroad was begun
by Perkins Bros., of Birmingham,
tla. About one hundred men nnd
levcnty-five mules are employed In
the work, and it 19 being done very
fast. As 9oon ns possible we will
give an extended account of the
work, and how It is being con
Hired a Hall.
The Baptists of this city have
rented Watts’Hall in which to hold
services until their new church is
built. The hall has been handsome
ly finished, and will make a pleas
ant and convenient chapel. The
reason for discontinuing services
in the Opera House is that tho
amusement season will soon open,
and it would often bo incouvcnicnt
to hold services there. The usual
sei vices will he held in the Opera
House to day. :

A correct opinion is expressed
by the Eastman Times: “It is not
a good idea for people who want
their town to boom to sit arouad
and wait for somebody to come
and boom it. The citizens of a
town must do their own booming,
and if they arc not disposed to do
that much for themselves, they are
not likely to get muoh of a boom."
The Americvs Recorder will
begin soon tho publication of a
daily. Mr, Glessner, its able edi
tor, is one of the most succesful
newspaper men iu Georgia. He
intimates that bo will continue its
publication if the business men
will support it, but not otherwise.
Mr. Glessner will not publish a
daily at a daily loss. Tho average
newspaper man hasn’t more than
two fortunes to throw away in the
publication of a paper in a non-ap-
prcciativo city. Amerious should
support Brother Glessner’s daily
and doubtless will do it.—Kulaula

Murray and others took tbe train
from Amerious to Montezuma, to
attend a meeting in advocacy of
Mr. Murray’s claims for tbe sena-

Minor’s Hall, which was complete-

by Col. Hinton, who held tho audi
ence for over an hour in advooacy
of Mr. Murray’s claims as the
Democratic nominee for Senntor
and a defence of Schley’s right
under the rotation system to name
the candidate. The Colonel's ar
guments were received with cheers
ol applause, from which it would
seem that the Democrats of Monte
zuma, at least, were determined to
stand by her sister county iu the
maintenance of her political rights. j
At tbe conclusion of Col. Hinton’s
speech Mr. Murray took the stand
and defined his position in such a
manner as seemed to relievo all
doubts of tbe few who wore uncer

From the Old Dominion
Martinsville, Va., Sept. 12—
Onr party of school girls, with
Judge Crisp and your humble cot-
respondent, arrived with duo
promptness at the Markham, in At
lanta, en route for Virginia, on the
2d inst. Misses Leila Crisp, Kate
Wheatley, Mattie Mosely and Bas-
sie DeJaruoltc made our heart
swell with pride as we noted the
handsome quartette, the prettiest
girls in the goodly number of
twenty-live who camo to be placed
under the care ot our kind passen
ger agent, Mr. C. E. Sergeant.
The majority of the school girl
baud going to Sunntou were from
Georgia. The parents of these
young ladies may well be satisfied
to place their loved ones under
the guidance of this estimable
gentleman. The handsome Pull
man coach in which we came so
comfortably from Atlanta to Dan
ville was the scorte of quite a
merry time, speeding along on tho
Piedmont Air Line. It was more
than amusing to sec several young
commercial travellers cautiously
slip into our coach and scat them
selves to get glimpses of the pretty
girls. No doubt they seemed beau
tiful to these saucy drummers,
who sat down on their satchels,
having the girls to search for their
hidden property. Pity they had
to witness their discomfiture,
though, at a distance, “like Ginn
saw the moon.” The Htauntonitcs
had their own fun, smiling, nod
ding on pillows, eating candy and
grapes. I am sure those young
men suid “sour grapes,” but indeed
they were most dclioious. Our
fruit gave out about tbe time we
were crossing the French Broad.
We interested ourselves then in
looking out tbe car windows at
the change of scenery from tbe
lowlands to the mountain ranges.
King’s mountain seemed to jump
suddenly to view, standing like a
great rough auimal before us. Wo
reached Danville at 12 o'cloek at
night, where wc met Mr. Jas,
Fricker boarding the train with
Minnie, his daughter, to join tho
girls for Staunton. I bade the
party good bye hero, took the bus
and was driven by moonlight to
tho Arlington Hotel, over rock it
seemed to mo rough enough to
shake tho hair pins out of my
head. Quito u grand nioo looking
city, notwithstanding the rocks.
I came early next day to Mar
tinsville over a narrow guago road
tbe wheels screaking up grade, mak
ing mo think for a lime some terri
ble bieakago was to happen,
found large Helds of corn and to
bacco in place of our cotton. It is
very dry and hot here, cutting off
the crops about half. Judgo Hair
ston and lady met mo with a car
riage and gave me an unusual geu
uine old Virginia welcome. Many
of our friends at home will remem
ber the Hairston family, who refu-
gcetl with us, and be glad to hear
that they are all here, remembering
most kindly their friends back in
Americus. It struck mo as quite a
rare coincident, after leaving J udgo
Crisp, the youngest Judge in our
own state, to And that I had como
to tho homo of tbe youngest fudge
in the Old Dominion. Stranger
still, I found, iu talking with him
and his good wife, their history in
part liko that of our own judgo—
opposition in their love affairs, etc.
Politics aro quietly discussed in
this mountainous region. Some
sensation was oreatod hero a day
or two since by somo one going to
a drug store, getting some power
fully offensive drug, scattering a
big crowd ol people at a Ropubll-
ii. s nrm
Georgia cotton hales for that
amount would make a much big
ger show. To-morrow, a party of
friends expect to go up on Chest
