The barge is surrounded by

11 was exactly 4 o’clock when
1 lie steamer and barge weresighted
by the watches gathered on the
river hanks one mil° below the
town. Directly the fleet was sigh

Homestead, shouting as they went
in advance of (lie dreaded barges.
Nome one notified the engineer at
the electric light works and for
a. second time the harsh-voiced
whistle sounded the general alarm.
Tho people responded with won
derful alacrity. There were old
men and young men, elderly wo
men, mothers with their babes in
their arms, and any number of
children. The day was jus! dawn

vapor hung over the waters.
Suddenly from out the shadows
were seen the lights of the steanier.

ed with a winchester rifle, and
each rifle was loaded to kill.
As the boat approached within
a few feet ft' the landing, there

PROTECTION AND WAGES,
The advocates of the McKinley
policy of high tariff protection
should get together mid agree up
on a fin*' of, argument. Henry
Clay said :
The d gne of protection which
will be" required for domestic in
dustry, beyond 1842 depends upon
the reduction of wages, the ac
cumulation of capitol, the perfec
tion of machinery, and the cheap
ening of the price at home of es
sential articles, such as fuel, iron
and so forth. We know that in
all human probability our num
bers will 1)» increased by an addi
tion of one-third at least to their
present amount, and that may ma
terialiv decrease wages.
Now, Andrew Carnegie has a
long head, He is i’amilliiir with
Clay’s arguments, and he takes
the position that our increas 'd |
population has caused the reduc
turn of wages, and a higher tariff
is needed to protect American la
bor. This p >sition, positively as
sorted and plausibly maintained
makes Mr. Carnegie apparently

Death of a Good and Noble

On Monday, July 4th, the sancli
fled spirit of Mrs. Francis Emily
Hughes, consort of Rev. Goodman
Hughes, of Dahlonega, passed
peacefully and resignedly from
earth to heaven, there to meet the
loved ones who have gone before,
and with them await the coming
of those who are to follow.
Born in South Carolina in 1817,
she was consequently about sev
enty-five years of age when God
claimed her. She with her pa
rents and other brothers and sis
ters, came to Georgia in 1823. At
the tender age of fourteen she was
converted at Mossey Creek camp
ground, Whi te county, and joined
the M. 15. Church and has ever
since lived a godly, righteous
and pious life, shedding joy and
peace, comfort and happiness on
all who came within the ; sphcre of
her saintly influence,
In 1833 she was happily mar
ried to Rev. Goodman Hughes,
who survives her. During their
long wedded life of nearly sixty
years, she proved to be* a helpmeet

to our common humanity, she was

in adversity, and a counselor and

home a penniless plow-boy, and by liis
indomitable will lie lias worked his way
up so as to sell so far, nearly 100,000 of
Beatty's Organs and Pianos since 1870.
Nothing scums to dishearten him; ob
