About September first we shall move into
our new store, at the old stand, Barlow Block,
Public Square, where we shall open the most
elegant assortment of goods in our line ever
brought to Southwest Georgia. At our pres
ent store on Cotton Avenue, we have a large
stock of Watches, Clocks and Jewelry, Solid
Silver and Plated Ware, Pianos, Organs and
Sewing Machines, and everything else usually
kept in a Jewelry and Music Store, that must
be reduced to save moving and make room
for new goods. Therefore, for the next
Twenty Days, or until we move, will sell any
thing we have in stock at prices lower than
have ever been reached before
FOIES, CASH I
Come and examine our stock, get our
prices, and we will guarantee that you will
be convinced that wc mean what we say
Remember we have great bargains to offer for
CASH and the time in which to secure them
is limited. Come one, come all, and don’t
fail to come early.

Preston, Ga., Sept. 16—Editor
Recorder:—Seeing a piece In your
last Issue marked “Pair Play,”
written by Mr. 3, B. Hudson with
the assistance of another aspirant,
who is afraid to make the venture
(or-some one else), I think it needs
a reply, especially in regard to
Mr. Hudson’s satisfactory record
in the legislature to bis constitu
ents. Mr. Hudson was elected
upon promises to bis constituents,
of whom I am one, to pass a certain
act which he claims he was un
able to accomplish. This don’t
look like he had any influence or
much ability, or he certainly coaid
hsvo put through a local act con
cerning nono but bis own county.
The truth of the matter is Mr.
Hudson introduced his bill and let
it go by himself. This is the only
record that I have ever beard of
his making in the legislature and
it has utterly failed to give satis
faction to bis constituents or to
make them proud of him as a rep
Washington, Sept. 16 Hamil
ton Pish, Gen. B. H. Bristow,

warehouse and sold, and supplied
themselves with all the goods
needed and wended their way slow
ly home. They live on rente-1 land
in Sumter county, about eight
miles above here. Thoy say they
will make five bales ol cotton and
plenty of corn, potatoes, etc. They
have nojrelatlves,doing all the work
themselves. This certainly should
prove an example for our colored

Not a white Republican attended

Considerable excitement in tho

Nkw York, September 15—The
Sun says to day: “President Ar

cancy in the cabinet. He baa vir
tually offered the post ol secretary
of the treasury to Gen. Gresham.
The latter is willing to take tbe
plaeo. Gresham’s transfer will
probably make Frank Hatton post
master-general, as it is understood
that tbe President is anxious to re
ward Hatton especially well for bis
good work at Chicago.”
