Bunny McCurdy, a youth that clerks at McDowell's, fer several years hasdiad the exclusive sale of the Atlanta Con stitution in Athens, and he bad built up quite a snug husinees on a small shale. When Mr. W. H. Brown was employed ss clerk at the Commercial betel, he had frexuent calls from guests for the Con stitution, and to save the trouble offend ing across the street every time he want ed a paper ordered a certain number of copies each da}', that he kept on sale at the hotel counter. This seriously cut into young McCurdy’s business, and making tho fact known to a Aw ef his mercantile friends a quiet boycott was naugurated. against the Commercial. When adrummer entered one of these stores he.was asked where he was stop* ping, and if ho repiiod at the Commer cial, was refused an order. N T o reason was assigned, save that the parties did not wish to patronise any man that stop ped at that hotel. This boycott had its ell'ect on the Commercial, and this week compromise was effected, by which Mr. Jcsso Alien was given Mr. Btown's place behind tho counter, and we pre sume that tho exclusive sale of the Con stitution will be restored to Bunny Mc Curdy.

While in Athens attending tho session of tho Board of Visitors appointed tho Governor to tho State University,’the editor was informed by ono of the pro fessors of an unusual instance of scho lastic enterprise. Two of the Atlanta students have crowded into the regular courso of Bachelor of Arts, or the “A. B.” course, tho course of “Master of Arts,” requiring a year or two longer. In ether words, these two young men havo accomplished six years of study .in the four years’ regular courso. They havo not only mastered the ordinary cur riculum, that the student genm-sliy takes, hut have in addition taken other and higher studies, and have with the double work, maintained the same high standard of scholarship. The “A. M.” course in cludes French, German, Calculus, De- i adaptive Geometry aad such high branches. Tho two young students thus compli mented by tile profossor, were John If. Slaton, soli of Major W, P. SlaUin. Su perintendent of Public Schools, and John W. Fain, son of our prominent mtrehant, Mr. Fain. These gentlemen may well be proud of their sons. These youths stand as high, morally as acholastically; They arc both talked ef as booked for honors.—Atlanta Capitol. EXCITED CREDIT JUS. Tho notice in yesterday’s Banner- Watchman that N. B. Jones had gone to California, created quite a stir en College avenue, and a meeting of his creditors was held in front of his office in the Mc Dowell building. Bailiffs were standing with all kinds of writs snd processes, ready to nab anything that locked like a law book or offico furniture. Livery stalilo men were peeping through the key hole to see if there was anything in tho room to satisfy them for buggy and carriage hire. Cigar men were eagerly watching every place to find a table to pay them for their fine cigars. Mr. Jones was known to smoke none but the finest A key was at laat found and the doors opened, hut a bill of sale had already been made to the fixtures and books, and the bailiffs had to return their attach ments with nulla bona written on the backs. Mr. Jones stood well in Athens until Ills sudden departure. We think that he will send the money and pay off his indebtedness. He had gotten behind, and no fees coming in, thought that it was best to seek the far West in search of fame and fortune^ MX. W.L.0LAT. We had had a pleasant call yesterday from Mr. W. L. Clay, who has been elected principal of the white depart ment of the public schools of Athens. Mr. Clay is a young man, scarcely reach ing the twenties, with a good, honest face, and bids fair to make his mark in the world. He graduates from the University this year, and secured the position over a large number of gentle men who were much older and with a great deal more experience. The ap pointment of Mr. Clay is a good one, and we feel confident that he will reflect credit on himself and those who appoint ed him. FUN1XAL NOTICE. The friends of Col. Jos. Troup Lump kin, are invited to attend hit funeral at the Oconee Cemetery to-day. The re mains will arrive nt the North-Eastern Depot at 12:.K) o'clock. FOB SALE TEST CUE?.

Carlton reached our people it plucked their—hopes, for they intended to place him in an elevated office, which he richly deserves. The disputed Fulcher-Freeman line, about which so much has been said and done, was, on last Sunday morning, run by ’Squire Duke Hamilton. He usod the French method, employing two rod- men. ’Squire Hamiitou is a good busi ness man, and never allows time and circumstances to defer his business. The rail of yesterday will place the crops beyend redemption, as the gran, to use a neighbor's expression, had a “foul holt” on it before the rain. It. D. .THE I’OST OFFICE. Mr. Ed. Bancroft to Sncoeed Mr. K. 0. Latimer. We learn that Capt. Burnett lias giv- i to Mr. Mr. .Ed, Bancroft the position of money order clerk in the Athens poat- oSScs, and that he will take charge the 1st of July, when Mr. Latimer will re tire. Mr. Bancroft is a worthy and effi cient young man, who has been for some timo with Mr. A. L. Mitchell, ad justing the affairs of the Southern Mutu al, and is in every way cempetcnt todia- ,pharge the duties incumbent upon him. He will make a strong bond to Capt Burnett, having sole management of the finances of the office. Mr. Bancroft's appointment will give entire satisfaction to our people, and a better man for the position could not hare been found. WILL BE 1VILT. This issue contains a call fur the sub scribers to- the' now Opera House, to meet at the Insurance Company's office on the 28th, for the purpose of orgaaiza- tion. The 25 shares have all been taken and several more shares can be sold, as thoso who have money to invest are anxious to get in. The work will l>e commenced very soon and Athens can boast of having one of the finest Opera Houses in the South. All the modern improvements will be put in, and the finest artist will He employed to paint the scenery. Judge W. B. Thomas, the most public spirited man in our city, de. serves the credit of getting up the Opera House. i J. T. MODES DE -PARIS A NSW (TORN. Mr. John Bird tells us that Mr. P. H. Snook, of Atlanta, authorised him to rent the best store-room he could find, as he intended on the 1st of September to open a first-class furniture store in Athens. Mr. Bird has not yet suc ceeded in renting a suitable room. There will he an active demand for buaineas heusea this fall, and our capitalists should provide for the same by filling up all the vacant sites on our business streets* * A VOICE FROM BARON. From a letter received from Rahuu county, we learn that the people are thoroughly aroused over the importance of the gubernatorial election, and that the mountain counties are bound to set down on the min who is a failure in ev erything. The letter ia from an influen tial man in Rabun county', and he lays that so much money can’t he spent to elect a man without there is something behind the scenes. MAD HON CATCHES ON. Judge W. B.
