Athens Chronicle: When Jim Saye
kept a store at ibe upper end of Broad
street, near the RtckSpring.be was badly
sold by a colored gentleman. Walking
into tlie store with a chicken in his hand,
the negro proposed a trade. Of course,
Jim was ready, and it was soon agreed
that an exchange should be made—fifteen
cents worth of sugar was to to given for
chicken. Jim placed his chicken in a
safe place until the dinner hour, when he
gathered it and went home. As soon as
hi* wife saw it site said: “Why that is one
«f our chickens." J im looked at it closely
and, in a slow, hesitating way, said: “1
believe it is.” And so it was. The negro
had gone into Jim's chicken yard the
previous night and appropriated it. If you
want to stir up Jim's dander, ask him
About that chicken trade.

Bainbridge Democrat: We have

at Cleveland, Ohio, to Col. Fleming,
chairman of county board, to tho effect
that cars filled with material for the

Savannah Xeics: There will arrive
here by the Charleston and Savannah
railway to-day, a Wilmington and Wel
don railroad car, No. 129, which was
loaded at Portsmouth, Va., for Savannah,
through without transfer of freight at
Wilmington. Heretofore, owing to the
change of gauge in the track at Wilming
ton, N. C., all freight destined for thb
city from the north aud east by rail had
to be transferred from one set of cars to
another, but now, owing to the use of the
transferable trucks on freight cars, there
is no further necessity for loading or un
loading at Wilmington, and freight will
be brought through from Portsmouth,
Va., and beyond, to Savannah, without
change of cars. The car that will arrive
this morning is the first that lias ever come
through. By this arrangement the trans
portation of freight will be greatly facili
tated, and the result will be advantageous
to tbe commercial community.
Albany Advertiser: Capt. H. G.
Turner remained in town last night as
the guest of Hon. J. W. Walters, and was
called on by a large number of our citi
zens, who expressed a sincere desire to
have him address the people of Albany,
and assured him of the earnest support of
every true Democrat In old Dougherty at
the coming election. A number of ladies
and gentlemen hearing that C3pt. Turner
would speak at Mr. Walters’ started
arouud to bear him, but were turned by a
correction of tbe report. Our people
want to get a chance to demonstrate how
solid they are for Turner. They are anx
ious to have him visit them so all can
have the pleasure of meeting him,
It may be proper to say that thb was
written before it was known that Mr.
Spence was to be candidate. Surely
the Advertiser frould not ignore an
Independent to support an organized
Democrat like Capt. Turner!

more important to tho second district, to-

which faction they belong, will endeavor

Atlanta Constitution: The minority

was proposed every man of the minority
refused to vote for hiui. Thb fact b suf

about S o’clock, after a brief illness. The

aged about twenty-eight years. He had
served his apprenticeship in the black-
smithing department of the Central Rail

Griffin Sun: Atlanta b onr old
home, we spent the greater part of our
life there and lore her people, but we-
think the political element of that city is
entirely too greedy. They want both the
organized and independent candidate
for Congress from the fifth dbtrict. Last
year both candidates were residents of
Atlanta and Hammond was elected, now
we think it nothing but fair that Spalding
should have a little showing this time.
She has, with the lower counties,
been ruled out by the Atlanta politicians
long enough. Hon. F. D. Dbmuke is one
of the most liberal minded men in the
State, and will receive more support from
middle and lower Georgia than any man
Atlanta can put up at thb time. The
gentlemen in Atlanta who propose to run
are all clever and capable meu, and wc
should delight to help honor them, but
just at thb time we think they would un
doubtedly fail to unite the Independent
vote as Dismukecan against tho nomiuee,
whoever he may be.
Savannah Xeics: On tlie 9th of Feb
ruary last, at a large meeting of the col

warded an appeal to Hon. John C. Nicb-
olb, from this district, to give hb support
to the bill which was introduced iu Con
gress by Congressman M. P. O’Connor, of
Charleston, S. C. The announcement
made in the Morning Xeics a few days
since that the commissioners of the
bank were paying ten per cent, ot
tbe deposits to depositors lias excited at
tention, and the committee have called a
mass meeting of the colored people, to be
held at Mclntire Hall, on Friday evening
next, the 27th inst., to take such action in
the premises as may be deemed best. _ In
formation on the subject will be given,
and measures will be offered whereby tbe
money can be secured for the depositors
without the expense of paying a collector.
Several parties will address the meeting,
and after thb matter has been disposed
of, a series of resolutions will be offered
pledging the support of the colored peo
ple to Hon. A. H. Colquitt, for governor.
The call states that no one will be allowed
to speak except on invitation in writing
from the secretary.
Atlanta Post: Thb morning a war
rant was sworn out by a prominent citizen
who resides on Peachtree street, against a
responsible business man, charging bim
with malicious mischief. The circum
stances which caused the issuing of the
warrant are about as follows:
Out near Baker street, and in tbe rear
of Peachtree, a gentleman Las a brick
yard, around which there is no enclosure
whatever. One night last week a dog, in
passing over tlie yard, spoiled quite a
number of bricks, and in order to revenge
himself, and Drevent a repetition of the
deed, it is asserted that the gentleman
purchased a quantity of beef and an abun
dance of arsenic, and covering the meat
with the poison, placed it about promiscu
ously in lus brick yard.
It is even asserted that he placed the
meat on elevated places, in order that the
night air might carry the scent further and
ipvite the dogs from a greater distance,
liut be that as it may, the bait had the
desired effect. On Thursday morning
six dead dogs lay scattered over that brick
yard, and tho neighborhood was alive
with sick ones. Qu Finlay and Saturday
night the dose was repeated, and about
twenty dogs in all have passed in their
checks. Among the number are some
valuable dogs belonging to the citizens
who reside in that section of the city, and
whose indignation b great at the inhu
man and cruel act. They severely de
nounce the work and assert their inten
tion ot prosecuting the proprietor to the
extent of tlie law.
The Eistman Times ha: a correspond
ent at Mt. Vernon who pays a compliment
ty one ot Macon’s fair daughters:
Wo are happy to say to you and your
readers, that our good old county 3eems
to be somewhat revived on the subject of
education. We have bad several fine
vchoos in our midst this year, one particu
larly, iuthe Adamsville settlement, taught
by the accomplished Mbs Lumpkin, one
of Maoon's fairest and loveliest daughters.
Indeed, she is a perfect little jewel to any
section or country; finely educated, a grad
uate, we believe, oftbo Wesleyan Female
College—energetic, high-toned, splendid
ly qualified to teach music; in fact, she is
just one of the iudispensablcs to our part
of the vineyard, and we are plotting now
to take her away from Macon entirely.
It is true Mt. Vernon is not quite as large
as Macon, but when it comes to age I
guess Macon will have respect for us, and
thereby yield to our demands without
force of arms. Miss Lumpkin was em
ployed by Geo. W. Adams, Esq., to teach
in his own family, but others subsequently
joined the school. Mr. Adams speaks iu
very high t**rms of thb young lady as an
instructress, both in music and literature,
aud I believe it is generally conceded that
when old man “Wash” puts them down
as A No. 1 they generally pass. We be
speak for Miss Lumpkin a bright and suc
cessful future in her undertakings. She
left us on the 13th inst., and will be away
perhaps a month. Wo cannot bnt allude to
tbe fact, that the course pursued, an exam
ple set forth hy thb young lady fully estab
lishes the truth that it cnly requires pluck
and energy in the young women of our
country to becomo independent and self-
austaining. Mbs L. b an orphan, with
no relatives, except a grandmother, who
lives in Macon, and she goes forth into
the world, modestly, yet bravely, demand
ing that which she has a right to—a just
compensation for her worth and talent ;
and from a generous, well-meaning peo
ple, she will ever receive it.

Savannah Xeics: Yesterday morning
early it was reported that a young man
named Charles Schellwien, employed as
clerk in the drug establishment of
Lippman & Bro., southwest corner of
Barnard and Congress streets, had com
mitted suicide in hb room, at No. Co
Gastoq street. Inquiry revealed the fact
that the report was true, and on investi
gation, we ascertained that the young
man had been at the store on Saturday at
tending to his usual duties until the
closing hours, and had been seen on the
street late Sunday afternoon. There was
nothing in hb manner to indicate th>t he
was troubled or depressed, and bis em

could Lave induced him to take his life.
He was of social dbposition, attentive to

cating liquors, and was, seemingly, satis
fied with his condition. He had been in

near tbe bridge, threw sticks in the water
for the dog to swim after. A crowd of

while in the water. While carrying a

Atlanta Post: A delegation of Ma
con citizens consisting of S. T. Coleman,
W. E. Flanders, D. B. Jones, T. D. Tins
ley, N. E. Harris and Clifford Anderson
reached Atlanta yesterday for the pur
pose of laying certain grievances before
the board of railroad commissioners re
lative to discriminations iu freight in
favor of Savannah and against Macon.
Tlie case will be presented to tbe com
missioners by N. E. Harris and Clifford
Anderson. The complaint, it b said, is
that with the present rates through freights
to Savannah from Americus, Fort Valley
and other points similarly located on the
same as from Macon to Savannah. AH
that the committee wants b be allowed
equal rates and no discrimination. Tbe
difference b said to be from 12 to 20 cents
per hundred pounds. Thb difference b
made by lowering tlie rates to Savannah
from points on the Macon and Western
and Southern railroads.
The committee desires either a redac
tion to Savannah from Macon aud Atlan
ta, or an increase from local points. The
matter, it is thought, will be satbfactorily
settled to-day, as the situation is now
pretty well understood by the commis
sioners as well as the parties interested.
Dupont Guerry, Mayor J. B. Felder, Allen
Fort and W. A. Hawkins are in the city,
for tho purpose of presenting certain
claims to the board of railroad commis
sioners. Mr. Fort says that all that
Americus wants b to be placed upon the
same footing with Macon m tlie matter of

midway grounds upon which to land so
as to satisfy the conflicting interest of the

remedies I have ever seen, in that it lias
no opiates; and an opiate in my opioion

Another Proposition for Waterworks.
Mr. Jesse W. Starr, Jr., writing to the
editor of the Teleouaph and Messen-

says that he is still unable to settle hb
business with Charleston, and cannot yet

ing propositions, however:
But to return to the subject of water

The Republican State executive com

to consider a recall of the order for a gu

slimly attended, hut there were enough
present to constitute a quorum. The ad

at thb late date, be impolitic to withdraw
the order for a convention. -

We were taken in chaige by Mr. George
Rosenfield, who explained to us the ar
rangement of goods upon the first floor,
and pointed out the vast stacks of wool-
ens, jeans, prints, dress anil heavy goods
which filled up the space.
Thb firm has within the last three days
sold and billed out over forty thousand
dollars ($40,000) worth of goods. In one
day the sales amounted to $16,000. It
carries a stock in the building valued at
from $250,000 to $300,000, and employs
seven drummers npon the roads of Geor
gia, Florida and Alabama. Including their
stock of hats and clothing on Mulberry
street, their stock b valued at nearly half
a million dollars, and so great b the de
mand for room, that the firm has been
compelled to store goods at warehouses
about the city.
Passmgup stairs we met Mr. Dixon who
very kindly undertook to explain the bal
ance of the establbhmcnt to us. The
second floor,, which covers the space usu
ally alloted to two or three stores, is di
vided up by arches, and sub-divided by
counters and partitions. It b absolutely
crammed full of goods from coiner to
comer; goods apparently strewn about
recklessly, yet, as is proved by a close in
spection, arranged with the utmost care
in its divisions and classes, until
any employe of the firm might at a mo
ment's notice place 1ns hand upon any
line of goods on the whole floor.
Beginning at the end of a long row of
counters, which are set crossways in the
rooms, we pass along, attempting a sched
ule of their contents as we move. The
first contains cuff buttons in every variety
and style, for we are now in the general
The second—Collar buttons, shirt studs,
watch chains, rings, etc.
Third—Ladies’ sets of jewelry, plated
Fourth—Jet ornaments, toilet articles,
Fifth—Necklaces of every description,
glass and otherwise.
Sixth to fourteenth—Ribbons, fancy and
plain, bread and narrow, and every col
or under tbe sun.
Next—Combs of turquoise for tucking,
hair brushes, covering two or three tables.
Two table loads of perfumeries, from the
“Wildbrier” up-to the “Jockey Club,”
and other tables loaded down with a hun
dred varieties of soaps. -
On both sides ot these counters are
shelf goods picked to the ceiling, aud
embracing everything known to the trade.
Near at hand we found an immense as
sortment of toilet powders. Beyond,
line of pocket cutlery, for the firm deal
in the celebrated brands—“Challenge;
“Buntings,” “Staniforths,” and “Wos-
tenholms,” the latter the best line of goods
in the market. They also deal largely in
Wade & Batcher's, and Rodgers’ razors,
and carry a full stock of table cutlery.
Upon the same shelves, which seemed al
most inexhaustible, we found large and
complete assortments of scissors,
shears, pistols, cartridges, caps,
and clocks, pipes of many different
styles, briarwood predominating, buttons
by the million, threads, and hundreds of
Yankee notions, a description of which
would fill columns. We saw, also, beau
tiful cabinets of walnut for holding thread,
cologne, etc., for display in country stores.
These are presented to customers. Add
to our list a fine display of pocket-books,
and the reader can get a faint idea of one
department on the second floor.
Passing under an archway, we find our-
selves in another and equally well ar
On the shelves and counters we see
Ladies’ and misses’ fancy hose in all
colors, styles and tints, sufficient to para
lyze a young and modest man.

We came next to a section filled np en
tirely by white hose, and a cross section
in which was displayed over one hundred
different styles of ladies’ hose, there being
on hand enough apparently to supply
every islander in the western Pacific.
Upon the counters in this department
we found also large lines of suspenders,
embracing everything from the old-fash
ioned one-button “gallus” down to the
patent brace of ISS0. The display of cra
vats, ties and scarfs, were exceptionally
fine, covering everything known to tbe
trade. ~ ^ *
Beyond these were terrace npon terrace

large portion of the space in.this depart
One whole side is given up entirely to
handkerchiefs, of which there seems to
have been no limit; everything m that
line was displayed—cambric, linen and
silks of all patterns. Near at hand were
corsets displayed in the most careless
manner, but the reporter only staggered
and passed along without attempting a
Passing under the arches again, we
came into still another department, and
beneld an elegant display of white goods,
towels, Irish linens, table linens, lawns,
nainsooks, etc., ete., indefinitely. In.this
department also is stored a full and com
plete line of umbrellas and parasols.
Farther along the line lay shirts, under
shirts, underwear piled up and packed
under until it was impossible to see how
much there was of it. Onr guide thought
there was enough, however, to clad every
voter in Bibb county.
The stationery department is also locat
ed here and embraced everything neces
sary to equip a first-class stationer.
Passiug up a flight of stairs we come in
among the shawls, cloaks, dolmans, skirts,
and balmorals, piled up in every direc
tion, and beyond them lay tranks, valis
es, and stacks of wrapping paper and
paper hags, until tbe eye wearies with
beholding, and tbe hand with recording.
Such is a brief discription of the con
tents of one of the largest establishments
in the country. Its full extent can better
be appreciated by remembering that, from
its stock as it now stands, a hundred
country stores could be fully equipped.
Waxelbaum & Bro., have an extended
and enviable reputation 'through tbe
country before described, and the credit
of tbe firm is unbounded. Tne employes
of the establishment are celebrated for
their industry and attention to business,
by the combined establishments of Waxel-
baum & Bro. and the retail firms adjoin
ing him on both sides.
It is such business centres as these that
attract to Macon much of the trade that
formerly went to New York.
