One of the flnpst displays at the fair
was made by Hr E W Burke in the Art
Hall, and hie exhibit was surrounded at
all times By an admiring throng. He
had samples of the magnificent pianos
and organa that he D selling, as also
books, stationery and printing. His

one of the most attractire features of the
This celebrated stallion, owned by Ur
R K Branch, of Oconee, was entered in
the pacing race to fill out the fair, and
, after the beats were aplit he was with
drawn. He is one of the beat bred stal
lions in Northeast Georgia, and has a
good record as a pacer. Hr Chuck An
derson, of Marietta, and Hr J A Bland,
of Nashville, say that they hare mado
special inquiries about Little Oiant in
Kentucky, and find that he is one of the
best bred stallions in Georgia, and that
if they lived in this section would breed
from him. Little Giant has made a
recoid both at a sire und on the turf
equal to any of the Haiubletonian breed.
He is the sire of two three-year-old* that
have trotted smile in 2:55. All of his
colts are promising, and arc natural trot
ters or pacers. Any one wanting to
raise from this fine stallion should ad-
dress R E Branch, Watkinsvilie, Ga.
A scrub race was gotten up for
the amusement of the spectators

to get them to run.

After thoy were given a short time to
rest they all came up again and away

much interest aathe friendly little tilt be-

was beautifu 1 , and the work highly credi

omit was displayed to its best advantage,. Best harness guldi-gn, R E Branch,
and so arranged in the show cases as to Oconee county,
bring out the prettiest and moat difficult ■
Azures. Mr. Cohen’s premium was
awarded to Mrs F.W. Lucas’ quilt, which
was certainly beautiful. But a. the te-
dies had taken so much pains with their
work, it seemed fair that more tium one
prise should be awarded, and to thla end
tha BanmeSiWhtciinan offered a second
specal prise of a beautiiul placque dock
to be awarded also for silk quilts. It
was difficult to decide the question, but

This live young drug firm made a
most creditable display at the fair, and
they are energetic and reliable young
men and put in a good exhibit which was
greatly admired. The charming plush
cases of brushes and combs, and mani
cure aete'were very pretty and the dis
play of mirrors, dressing esses and toilet
articles was as pretty and as complete aa
lything on the grounds. Messrs. Long
id Taylor are both well known in
Athens, and can be found at the old
stand of Long St Co. Thoy keep every-
thing in the drug line which can be
thought of, and carry a full line of drugs
as well aa fancy articles.
Mrs. Thomas Spalding won the pre
mium at the fair for the best saddle mare.
This well-known lady exhibited a beau
tiful animal, which was admired by the
hundreds every day of the fair, and it
was not hard to tell where the blue rib
bon would be when the committee came
around. The mare was gracefully ridden
by Mr. Thomas Cobb.

JudgeThoinne Think* It Not Eaten-
tlul to tho Prosperity of Athens,
A B.-W. reporter yesterday met Judgo
W. B. Thomas, and asked what he
thought of Athens making an effort to
get the Augusta St Chattanooga railroad
to come through this city.
“Of course we would like to have it,”
wai the reply, “but I think we can in
vest our money to better purpose in the
projected road through Klberton. We
will then < ■ -

i half at
somo point in Madison county, and will
slico it again where it crosses the North-
Eastern. This I think will do Athens
naarly as much good as to have the road
come through our limits. With the in
ducements we are ablo to offer; we can
draw both trade and cotton from up and
down that road, and instead of injuring
us it will be a fine feedeijfor Athens.
Tho Elberton road is one of the most im
portant tint we can build, and I do not
think there is much doubt about it com
ing hero. However, we had better sare
all of our money to put in that road. It
is foily to talk about huiiding up a rival
to Athens in Augusta. Are we no
getting cotton from over the line of Geor
gia railroad, in direct communication with
Augusts? Athena will be ablo to hold
her own against any competitor.’^ ■
