Vbout 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 cveiything 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
FOR CASH I
Come and examine our stock, get our
prices, and we will guarantee that you will
be convinced that we 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.

You will bo surprised to know
tbat the “pet and pride” of Al
bany, tlie Artesian well, is not
even honored with a wooden en
closure, but is left entirely’ open to
tbe disgust of visitors and morti
fleation of residents and tax pay-
era. It is a rendezvous for geese,
bogs, cows and wasber-womcn. A
lady cannot approach the well with
out rubber boots, run agaiust by
offensive negroes and insulted by
obscene language, and still our no

fear of offending the darkies, who
of course are the principal tax

A Strange Death.
Coi.umbus, Qa., September II.—
Mr. Charles Wynn, ol Chattahoo
chee county, died to-day under tbe
following peculiar ciroumstanoes:
Ho had been suffering with tooth
ache for several days, and the oth
er night applied a lump of gum-
camphor to the tooth, it allevia
ted tho pain, and he dropped off
sleep, still retaining tb* camphor
in Ids mouth. It is supposed tbat
he swallowed tbe saliva produced
by tbe action of the camphor dur
ing his sleep, as be Anally awoke
in great agony. Bis gums and
mouth were terribly burned. Me
lingered until tills morning when
death relieved his suffering. He
The Work In Wisconsin.
Tbe result of Mr. Suhurz's work
in Wisconsin is beginning to show
itself. At a large meeting of inde
pendents held at .the St. Charlos
hotel an organization was formally
effected. J. P. McGregor presided.
He explained that tho purpose ol
the meeting.was to decide upon a
i State centra! committee to corres
pond with and perfect an organiza
tion of republicans opposed to the
election ot Blaine residing in all
parts of the State. While oomniit-
tees were perfecting the organiza
tion ex-Congressman Pound was
called upod for a speech. He re
ferred to what he termed “an Inter
esting batch of correspondence be
tween Blaine and Fisher, which
had just been mads public." Be
bad discovered that only the inde
pendent press published the news
as it was. He attacked the parti
san press for the suppression of
news reflecting upon the candidates
espoused by it. Tho election of
officers resulted as follows:
President—Tbaddeus G. Pound;
Vice Presidents—Herman Sigel,
J. B. Foilett, Henry Baetz. Ex
ecutive Committee—Thaddeus 0.
Pound, Herman Sigel, Heniy
Iieatz, Otto Zwictuseb, J. P. Mc
Gregor, X.S. Murphy, and Herman
Heyn. Mr. Pound expressed his
thanks, and hoped no mistake had
been made in bis selection for tbe
position. He urged everybody to
get to work; He suggested tbs
appointment of a committee 6t
three to decido upon a subscrip
tion heading for scouring the en
rollment of independents. They
concluded to adopt a declaration
that the signature involved fealty
only to Cleveland as against Blaine,
and that as far as the oounly, or
other ticket outside of the presi
dential ticket, were concerned, the
signers could do as they pleased.
The beading is as follows:
"We, the undersigned, who have
usually in tho past supported tbe
republican presidential tiohet, be
lieving that tho best interests of
the country demand the defeat of
James G. Blaine and tho oleotiou
of Grover Cleveland, do hereby
severally enroll oursolvea a* co-op
erating to that end.”

astic. Large numbers of voters
