The present sheriff’s office has been turned over to the County School Commissioner, and the Siier- 'fl’s office moved into the County Court’s old office. This will be re paired and put in good condition. It will be remembered that the lightning struck Ue chimney top from that room in the court hnu-e and, damaged it so much that a flood of rain poured in ana injured the walls on the East side consid erably. The board appointed Messrs. J. W. Grubbs, J. B. Rouse, J. H. Park er, Ed, Buckmaster, and G G. Brin- st n to superintend lands on the roads as overseers. The road Tax on the suggestions of Mr. Cates, chairman, was charg ed to 5 days work or to be commut ed by paying $2. This is an impor- j tant move and will get a great deal of work for the county that Is now hard to get for love or money. The old rates were 3 days work or com mute with $1 60 Mr. Frank S. Palmer was elected cierk of the board. He is an agree able young man and will fill the place most acceptably Mr, Pennington who was asking $150 damages for a county bridge breaking in and injuiing machin ery w’as allowed fifty dollars. The bill creating the City court left out the $500 allowed the court’s solicitor, but the commissioners al lowed him the amount and he is to receive monthly $41 66 The board also allowed the insolvent costs in certain cases. Five hundred dollars was appro priated to bridge building and re pairing. The retaining of Mr. Price Palm er as superintendant of roads will be acceptable to the people. A bet ter one could not have been select ed. The superintendent of the pauper farm, Mr. Sol. K. Mills, who holds over by re-electtou is a most effi cient man for the place. He has made it a paying and more than a self supporting one for the county. The inmates of the farm are well provided for, 20 -“Miss Bob White.” 22— “Evil Eye.” 23— Hermann she Great. 24— Joshua Simpkius. 28 -Ru-co & Holland Minstrels. 29-Denmau Thompson.

S Civil Service Commis sion will hold examinations at sev »ra! places iu each state during March and April, to secure young men and women for the govern ment service. 9,889 persons secured positions last year through these examinations. Probably 10,000 ap- po'Dtmer.ts will be made this year. AH appointments are for life and for most positions only a common school education is required. Sala ries at appointment vary from $660 to $1200 a year with liberal promo tions afterward. Politics is not considered. There is less compe tition in the Southern states than in other parts of the country. This affords a good opportunity for peo pie between 16 and 45 years of age. Those desiring places of this kind can get full information about them free, by writing to the Columbian Correspondence; College, Washing ton, DC, and asking for its Civil Service catalogue, number three. Three New Aldermen Elected to Hold for Two Years. Little interest was manifested ir: the city e'ectfou Wednesday last and the same passed off quietly. Mayor R C. Neely w’as re elected and also the following councilmen- were re-elected for two years each: Messrs. Simeon Beil, W. A. Wil. kins and P. L. Corker. The other councilmen, Mes-ts. C. W. Hurst, W. M. Fulcher and P B. Hall hold over for another year under the law Thursday evening last the city government organized and elected a marshal and night-watchman. Our veteran Marshal J. A. Grubbs, was replaced and holds ihe baton aud wears the badge as gracefully as ever. Long inay he keep the peace of the city aud suppress blind tigers. The night watchman’s place is now filled by Mr. F U. Button. Frank ha3 stood guard many a night in old Virginia and unless he has lost his cunning the prowling burgiar and sneak thief had bet ter look out. The committees for waterworks, electric lights, etc , are Messrs Wii- kins, Hal! and Corker. They will inquire and look after estimates, contemplating the erection of water w’orks and electric light plant for the city. Messrs Bell, Fulcher and C. W. Hurst are a committee to look after the legality of issuffig of bonds to pay for water works, &c, An election for issuing these bonds will be held as soon as these com mittees report. Miilen Knights Install Officers. Millen, Ga,, Jan. 15th —special. — Miilen Lodge No. 56 Knights of Pythias met in their Castle Hall on Monday evening January 13th and marched in a body to the auditori um of the public school building, where a public installation exercise was engaged in. Grand Chancellor F. A. Hooper held the gavel and in stalled the officers in a very impres sive manner, after which he deliv ered a very instructive and appreci ated address on Pythlanism The following officers were in stalled: C L.

Harris responded re spectively to the toasts, K. of P Fra ternity and Millen lodge. After all had sufficiently partaken cf the many eatables available the party dispersed and retired to th-ir re spective places of domicile, after having spent a roost pleasant eve ning. WILL PROBABLY organize. A Gynasium, Beading Booms. Baths, E;c.. and Athletic xercises. The young men of this city are discussing the feasibilitv of organ izing a club the purposes of which are to have rooms with accommo dations for reading, baths, gymna sium for athletic exercises and so forth. It seems to meet with gene ral encouragement and a meeting will doubtless follow in a few days to carry out the purposes of such an institution, and a full attendance of those interested is desired. Delegates Appointed, Judge Geo. F. Cox has appointed the following gentlemen delegates from Burke county to the Good Roads Convention to be held in Au gusta from the 20th to 25lh inst: P B. Hall, R.

Southern Hardwood Co, Charleston, S. C, Musical Entetainment. Perhaps the best musical treat that Waynesboro has ever had will be the concert given at the Acade my Auditorium on Monday night February 10th by Mr. Edward Bax ter Perry, the famous blind musi cian of Boston. Mr. Perry has play ed all over Europe and America before the most distinguished and cultured audiences of the two con tinents, and Waynesboro is to be congratulated upon securing him on his annual tour through the South. Mr. Perry is not only a musician of the highest rank, but he is aiso a charming lecturer, and by his beautiful and lucid descriptions of his music he makes it possible for unmusical people to appreciate and enjoy the best music which is a special feature of his work upon which he prides himself Oak View, Correspondence.

This honor could not have been more worthily bestowed than on this deserving citizen of Augusta. The Augusta Herald of the 14th inst, says:“Not only was Mr. Hayne unanimously chosen president, but he was heartily congratulated by the stock holders on his successful management of the affairs of this well known banking institution.” Card of Thanks I wish to thank the ladies who came to see about me on last Sat urday afternoon, most cordially It is quite a consolation to me to know that I have so many friends I feel so thankful that the rumor is false, and hope that the good Lord will see fit to spare me m*ny more days. Very respectfully. Mrs. T. Watkins. —Rev. E D. Geddins, c^l., who was pastor of the Haven Memorial church here for the past year or two has gone to his new charge at Cul- loden, While here he did most of the preliminary work in the re building of the Haven Normal School, and conducted himself in a manner that won him the respect of onr white eitlzens. — I have several pair of pants on which a deposit has been made that I will sell at a close price to get rid of them.
