The veteran editor of the Griffin
Sun says his “information concerning
the existence of small-pox
Newnan was obtained from
gentleman of undoubted integrity,
and the information that the
thorities wele endeavoring to keep
the matter quiet was told to him by a
citizen of Newnan. * * * For one
of such tender years, Brother Brown
is entirely too fractious.” If the vet
eran editor of the Sun had “no inten
tion of doing Newnan an injustice,”
as he avers, why did he not communi
cate with our authorities before mak
ing public the ridiculous rumor he
claims to have heard? Heough; eith
er to have adopted this course or tried
other sources for a confirmation of the
alleged report. It frequently hap
pens that even “gentlemen of un
doubted integrity” are mistaken—es
pecially in transmitting reports of this
character. The generous silence of
the Grifflu Acivs concerning our mis
fortune was in such striking con
trast to the reckless previousness
of the Sun as to excite comment
here. True, the editor of the Sun, in
a subsequent issue, “disclaimed any
intention of doing Newnan an injus
tice;” but, as is generally the case
where a slander is fulminated, the
harm bad already been done.

The Town Council ordered the shoot
ing of a mule last Monday because the
animal had the glanders. The owner
of the diseased mule carried it to the
country and the town may be consider
ed quarantined against the long-eared
beast. We may remark, in passing,
that the only way to get rid of the glan
ders is to kill the infected stock, and
the sooner the better. Anyone hand
ling sueh animals is liable to contract
the disease, which is as fatal as yellow
feyer or small-pox.
What a truly beautiful world we live
in! Nature gives usgranduer of moun
tains, glens and oceans, and thousands
of means of enjoyment. We can de
sire no better when in perfect health;
but how often do the majority of peo
ple feel like giving il up disheartened,
discouraged and worn out with dis
ease, when there is no occasion for this
feeling, as every sufferer can easily
obtain satisfactory proof that Green's
