A few more hands .went to * urk in
the Augusta Ikctory yesterday. Opera
tire were seeu in groups discussing some
important matter, On inTeatigetion it
was burned that the. subject was con
cerning the return of delegate Meynerdie,
who had unexpectedly come home in a
a moat precarious condition. A Chroni
cle reporter celled at Mr. Meynardie’s
residence to aecerteing hie condition. A
ring at the bell bronglit out Dr. Sally.
. “How is Mr. Meynerdie?”
“Much better then yesterday.”
“When did he arrive, and what is the
matter with,him?" -
‘ “He came home Monday night on the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta railroad
and when he drove up to tho house he
was really in a critical condition—com
pletely prostrated, from mental exhaus
tion, from overtaxing the brain.”
Dr. Bally ahsved the patient’s head
and applied poultices and blisters, and
last night he was resting easy, though
quite a aick man, and will more than pro
bably be obliged to keep to the house for
over a week.
“We have allowed no one to see Mr.
Meynardie because he gets excited and
almost crsiy whenever he speaks con
cerning the mills. And I am afraid,”
■aid Dr. Sally, “that excitement will
bring on fever. Mr. Meynardie lias been
in this condition oversino- last Thursday..

air of sn approaching holiday. The sir
aitll breathed of the freshness and life’of

marrow’s ordeal The day of Atonement
the day of fasting and of prayers.
By o o’clock the Synagogue WM filled to
its utmost capacity. 0, how great to a
man hi the eyes of the worldt but how
insignificant does he feel himself in the
presence of his God and Creator?
Every face bore the impression of grief
and sorrow, yet a glitter ia the eye wm
visible to the close qhsenrer that bespake
of hope. Hope or foreivMM for their
iniquities—pardon for their sins. Every
heart seemed as if inspired with one feel
ing, “penlteuce,” and ovenrbody seemed
to take hope at the words of the holy
book, “Come unto Me with a penitent
heart and you shall be forgiven.”
At 6:80 o’clock the organ pealed forth'
a slow, sad and solemn music which ac
corded with the feelings of everybody
present, “The great day hM commenced.''

The Free School Balt Fills Athens

Of latu petty larceny has become a
most common practice in Athens, inter-
with house breaking; but it to hard
for tho pre^i to got information on the
subject Tho onlg.arrest we have heard
of is tho little negro* butcher found hid
in his chest and whom h* turned over to u

use wm burglarized three times, it WM
kept a profound secret until tha but qing
of his barn brought it out The city 'til,
now rapidly filling op with strange ne
groes . some coming from M far distant
as Wilkes county, that they may have
their children educated free of charg*
by the tax-payers of Athens. They have
uo visible means of support, and there to
not enough work for so many unskilled
laborers. They must necessarily live,
aud to do thia have to resort to theft. It
ia to the new comers that the villainy in
Athens to directly traceable, and before
the winter is j«rer we expect to .see lar
ceny increase to unbearable proportions.
Some stops should bo taken to bring these
outlaws to justice, and to. rid our froe
schools from such a bother. Thoy don’t
even pay poll tax, and yet their children
are placed on the same footing as the beat
citilena of the place. We suggest that
the Board of Education rule out such
creatures from the benefit of our public
schools. If someting to not done it win

At 8 o'clock the Bev. Dr. Jacobs deliv-
ono of the ablest discourses we
over listened to. His subject was the
Perpetuity of God’s Promise. He took
his text from Is. 40-7: “The grass wither-
eth, the flower fsdeth, but the words of
our God shall stand forever.” Beautiful,
indeed, did the Rev. Dr. illustrate the ex
istence of a God, and with a masterly
hand did he follow his text until the end
of his discourse. The congregation was
deligted, and for good reason, for never
did a more able man fill the pulpit of the
Athens Synagogue than Dr. Jacobs. His
discoarse tested about one hour, after
which tho choirsang, Protect Us Through
The Coming Night The choirsang very
finely and deserve great praise. After the
delivery of the benediction the audience
left the Synagogue only to reappear tho
next morning. Thui passed the opening
of the great day.
Synagogue again were opened. At'8
o’clock the congregation had assembled,
and prayers were offered. Mr. 8. Hirsh-
ficld assisted Dr. Jacobs in in tha morn
ing services which were very impreMive.
The saddest, yet most beautiful feature of
the morning service, was the Memorial
Services for the Dead. Each and every
heart (M foil of remembrance for the
dear departed ones. Irving lua truly
■rid, “Sorrow for the dead is tho only
sorrow from which we refuao to "be di
vorced.” Every other wound wa seek to
heal, every other affliction to forget, but
this wound wo consider it our duty to
keep open, this affliction we cherish and
brood over in solitude. Where to the
mother that would willingly forget thq
infant that pertehed like a blossom from
her arms, though every recollection to a
pang? Where is tho child that could
willingly forget the most tendar of pa
Tears of recollection flowed froely;

to refresh toe penitent. It asomed he

was taken front Pa. XC-7: Teach us to
number our days that wa may apptroor
hearts unto wisdom. He beautifully illus
trated Human Life—compared it to tha
day’s services, ,atc. The twenty-four
hoars of fasting and prayer 'ware at an
end, and after, the confession of the Jew
ish Frith, the blowing of tho cornet, and
the peUedlction by Dr. Jacobs, the aervi-
ces were over.
