Now is the time. It is the opinion
of many that if we don’t get rain
soon we will have a great deal of
sickness. In some parts of the
country it is most impossible for
stock to get water. Many of them
have to go miles to get it. Most
ot the water gins and mills arc out
of water, and the steam gins are
crowded. Right here wc will-say
that we have plenty of water, en

think it was, and don’t think it
right to pay as much for grading

somqot us are going to hold soma

is completed. Many of us expect
to buy our next year's supplies in
Americus, and have them shipped
to our nearest stations, which will
be much cheaper than hauling them
from other places. Everybody over
here likes Americus, hut every

NbwYobk, Oot. 20 The rail
road war between the Western
trunk lines still continues, and the
Erie Company to-day announced
that it would to-morrow meet the
reduced rates of the Central and
West Shore Roads. The predic
tion is mado that tickets will yet
be sold to Chicago for $5 each.
The Post says: “The newa of
the morning arc all in favor of a
depression of prices. It is report
ed and believed that the West
Shore has contracted to take grain
from Cbieago to New York at 7
cents per bushel. There seems to
be no prospect of an immediate
improvement in the war ol passen
ger rates cither between Now York
and Chicago or west of the tatter
point. Buffalo dispatches this
morning say that the New York
Central officials have ordered a
reduction of passenger rates to
one-half from Chicago to the Mis
souri river. Tho passenger rates
are in quite ss discouraging a con
dition as far as the war in rates
between the trunk lines east of
Chicago is concerned. It eoems
to bo coupled with the purpose to
break down ail prices in order to
get possession of certain stocks, of
which Jersey Central is ono, that
being the key to the local trade
from New York and points East.
It is apparent that Reading can
not hold control of Jersey Central,
owing to its own increasing finan

gron, Dr. L A. Dugas, expired at
8:15 Sunday morning in his sev
enty.ninth year, after an illness ol

Washington. Ga., in 1806, and,
after completing bis education in
America, spent tbreo years in Eu
rope in the prosecution ot his med
leal studies, paying particular at
tention lo the branch ol surgery.
For a number of ycais he edited
the Southern Medical and Surgical
Journal and contributed a large
number of valuable and original
papers, among which are the differ
ent diagonis of the fracture of the
shoulder and the heroic treatment
of woundB in the nbdomcn. He Is
the only physician in America who
has accomplished the ligature of
tho ircliiatic artery for aneurism.
He wus one of the founders of the
