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
IF’O-R. 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.
JAS. PRICKER & BRO.
Americus, Ga., Aug. 13, 1884. •
I know my friends and cus-
! tnmers think that I am rather
| silent since my return from the
1 North, but it was done on ao
: count of moving into my new
j mammoth store, and also in
I opening and arranging the
stock. I will break the silence
by stating that I have bought
a very large stock of goods,
comprising Dry Goods, Furnish
ing Goods, Clothing, Shoes,
Hats, and in fact everything
pertaining to ladies and gentle
men’s wear. I “struck” in
time the Halstead, Haynes &
Co. which stock, was sold at
auction through the assignee.
These goods are of the finest
ami best makes, and 1 will offer
them at prices that will make
you think that I have got them
without buying them at all. I
will take pleasure in showing
and pricing them. Come and
examine whether you wish to
buy or not.
One word to the wise: I
bought these goods to sell, and
go they must for several rea
sons, hence take advantage of
the low prices and lay in your
fall supply in the wearing line.

i iu all respects competent and qualified,

all public legislation that Senator votes
for every county of the Slate, or in other
words, every county is effected for good

the 13th distriet, os well as all other Sen

—Our Superior Court convened lust
week with Hon. J. T. Clarko presiding,
than whom a more efficient and onpablo
officer docs not gruco the Georgia bench.
Ablo, affable and unswerving; indeed he
is a truo specimen of tho “nobleat work
of God’s creation." In addition to the
local bar, were present Col. J. H. Guerry,
Solicitor, Col. J. T. Flewellen, Col. Ar
thur Hood, Judge W. D. Kiddoo, of
Cnthbert, and J. B. Bussey, stenographer
for the court.
No cases of importance! were tried
from the civil side, snd only a fow un
important criminal cases wore boforo tho
court. Jas. Brooks, a sly old coon of
tho colored ministry, was up for corn
stealing, was convicted and punished
commensurate with tho dignity of offense
snd position. Oliver Moore, another
colored brother, was convicted for steal
ing cotton seed. Fine aud costs sixty-
nine dollars, or six months in chain gang
at home. Very few truo bills were re
turned by the grand jury, whloh is ovi-
denco of a gradnal.reduotion of crime in
Tbo weather is very dry and hot; the
dry atmosphere passing over the swamps,
tho recently dried out lakes and utud
holes whioh contaiu an abundance of
miasma and malatia bocomos impregna
ted by moisture, with theso offensive
matters and furnishes tho surrounding
adjacent inhabitants with very un
pleasant and unwelcome* visitors, chills
and billions fever. Very few families
near the river and creeks have escaped
these complaints, though we are glad to
know that nearly every case yiolds read
ily to remedies. The Midway neighbor
hood have suffered generally, which ts
Mr. J. M. McDowel, of Northwest
Texas, is on a visit to his old home Id
Fort Gaines, both for business and pleas*
are. He says that no raio has fallen in
his section ot Tex«s since the l'Jth of
June, eonwqaeutly cottou crops and
late corn aro seveioly cut off. Yet
he says notwithstanding this unprece
dented drought, their crops are better
than in this country. Mr. Me. speaks
very highly of Texas as a farming coun
try, though there are many inconvenien
ces to contend with. Y’et he saye, all
things ccnsidered, be would uot move
hack if be were offered a good plantation
hero gratuitously, He hea farmed the
last two years there, and is a tbnfly and
successful farmer, snd bis judgement is
good; therefore his statements ore cer
tainly entitled to consideration. Mr. M.
had a genuiue Jack, or mule-eared rabbit,
which is quite a curiosity here. In col
or it is a dark gray, with ears retching,
when turned baekward, more than half
the length of the body, woigbing, when
full grown, from 25 to 30 ponnds, snd
fleet as a deer. No dog except a gray-
honnd is able to catch one.
Our cotton crop is poorer than we ex
pected . Very little if any more than half
a crop will be realized.
I regret to see the strife and division
in yoor Banstorisl district, and hope the
trouble may yet bo settled satisfactorily
before the election day. I mast say,
however, in this connection that I think
Col. Hudson's proposition tor settlement
did no) go far enough, as it ttcema to na
Umt after the convention declared by
MKiiinr Moultjue, Sept. 21.—I was
shown quite a curiosity a few days since,
by an itinerant Jack-of-al 1-trades. Being
a skillful amitb, he showed us some rooks
in Western Decatur county, Ga.. contain
ing iron, and welted and hammered
until he obtained a small obunk of row
iron therefrom. This he wrought into
a knife blade, aix inches long, whioh he
succeeded in temporing until it holds an
edge equal to the ordinary pocket kniio.
He made u handle for it, and, though
rough, yet it answers very well for a
“bench knife," and he uses it In belt
cutting, etc., when working sround
steam mills. Tho maker’s name is Levi
-Webb, and ho is quite a genius in his
I notioe some progressive farmers are
engaged in turning under their .stubble

jambs, then wo will begin to mako

richly deserves. Guess Eds. G. A. 8.

Two of the carpenters engaged on the
new court house building have been
crippled. Mr. Rioks, by his foot being
wrenched and ankle fractured in a belt
at Wheeler Normon’s saw mill, and Mr.
Joe. Rowse l»y falling across a sleoper,
injuring bis leg. I do not tbiok the inju
ries of cither are permanent but both hurts
arc exceedingly painful and for the time
the men ore disabled, their placea being
filled by two carpenters from Sumner, Ga.
Hr. Watkins received tho nomination
for tho Legislative moo, but Pattersou
and Gay, are both running independent.
Pattersons cbunces are fair if Gay will
withdraw, but at presont he ia not dis
posed to do so. In accepting tho nomi
nation, Dr. Watkins laid down some
solid truths, whioh our people would do
well to ponder on. Heretofore, after
•looting a representative, wo have aet
down and let him do as beat he could,
never indicating our wishes as to bis
course, by mass meeting, petition, or
otherwise. We are now to hare • mass
meeting, whoro measures will be formu
lated defining his course on the grave
quostions which he, in common with
other members, will be required to settle
daring the coming session.

Hawkinsvillo Dispatch; A few
days ago we mentioned iu the
Dispatch that Hon. 8. W. Brown,
of Pulaski county, had picked 25,-
700 pounds of cotton from a patch
of 17 acres. Since then the pAtoh
has been picked over twice, and up
to Friday last the 17 acrei had
yielded 35.000 pounds of seed cot
ton. Allowing 1,500 ponnds to
make a bale of lint, the yield to
far is 20 bales on It acres, and
there wit! be several thousand
pounds yet to open.
