What She U Capable of.
I take pleasure in introducing to you
the agricultural county of Wiregrass
Pierce has lor a decade or more !>een
making rapid strides in the art of hus
bandry, and to-day she stands peerless
as a productive and wealth gaining
county. Here the silvkn fibre of the
long stapled cotton matures in all its
beauty, and here corn and other grain
ripen under the glowing sun; here the
luscious sugar cane easts its blades to the
breeze, and all forms of vegetables grow
to make glad the heart of the epicurean.
Peopled by an honest, industrious and
hospitable citizenship she moves forward
with stately tread in the march of pro
gress. To-day slit* presents a spectacle
of wealth and prosperity proportionately
unrivalled in the state.

The circular is of great interest,
not alone to the county school com

the schools and the patrons of the
schools as well. It reads as follows;
HISTORY, A TEXT ROOK.
To the County School Commission
ers of Georgia: History, by direc
tion of the state board of education,
has been made a part of the curricn-
lum of the common schools. It is,
therefore, my duty to give the county
boards of education, through you,
the following instructions :
1. The prescription of history ia
now placed upon the same basis as
arithmetic, geography or any of the
branches heretofore recognized as
the legal branches. j
2. It is limited to elementary his
tory of the United States and of the
staie of Georgia.
3. It is made mandatory on the
hundred thousand jKmmls, with a valua
tion of over one hundred thousand dol
lars, and in Pierce some of this money
sticks to the farmers’ fingers, and all
does not go for supplies and guano bills.
So most of our farmers seem to have
done well this season. The good price
of cotton with the beautiful yield of
corn lias filled Imtli purse and ham. Iu
fact this is a glorious county of ours;
a kindly soil productive of all manner of
harvests, while fruits grow and ripen al
most the year ’round. I ate a moat lus
cious Keiffer pear about the first of De
cember and I noticed that a great many
LaContes had a second crop of pears
almost matured when frost came. I
look from my w’indow now upon an old
fig tree that has offered its delightful
sruit to two generations, and last year
I ate of three different crojis of figs that
it bore on its ancient boughs. How-

He was elected to tbe senate March

afterwards elevated him to a seat on

was perhaps as prominent a figure as
