Harper’s Ferry rifle with a triangular Thomasson, a Blackstonian disciple, j piece of steel attached to its business who took his original degrees in law at end—a bayonet. The gun has a warlike —Advertising pays. It is generally known that I’m a hayseeder from away “yan”—what is known among the craft as a dress-parade farmer, who never made a dollar at the business, but taught the other fellow how to avoid the shoals that wrecked my efforts. Though I haven’t farmed any in thirty years, yet I’ve a hanker for it. Seeing i the State University a few years 'ago, ' and a subsequent post-graduate course | at Yale College during the past year, took his departure for Cordele, where he will be associated with Col. W. H. Dorris in the practice of law. Knowing, as we do, the young gentleman’s splen did mental attainments, it goes with out saying he will in a brief period win the golden opinions of his confreres and laurels worthy of his splendid abil ities. —Mr. Horrie Bradley, of Carters- ville, spent several days in town the latter part of the week. —Miss Florence Fallow, of Opelika, Ala., arived in the city Thursday after noon, and was the guest of Mesdames .1. F. Creel and M. M. Bradley. She de parted for New York Sunday after noon. —The good old times that obtained in Georgia sixty years ago have left but a lingering echo of what they were. on the by the that the U. S. Government is squander- j attendance on sale-days ing a few dollars on seeds bestowed on fj rB t Tuesday in each month the farmer, 1 put a notice in this paper I lrm | ( , population, is a custom that has last week (hat the dispenser of these I ( jj ec ] away with the commercial spirit good things had better come across, or I’d put up a holler. The seed have not arrived, but as a kind of propitiatory offering 1 got a 90-lb. bundle of Con gressional Records by next mail. That the seed will come, your grandpappy is certain. Mr. R. Lee Sharpe has the most up-to-date job printery south of Atlan ta. In point of equipment, it is superb; as to location, it is ideal; for space, he has a hall 80x100, without wall or par tition. All of this space is filled with machinery of one kind or another- mostly presses. Lee is just a hustler. He is out for business, and is getting his percentage of it. Our former fellow-citizen and ex cashier of the Carrollton Bank. Mr. John R. Adamson, now of Rome, was here on business Monday and Tuesday. Miss Ethel Tumlin visited her friend, Mrs. S. M. Copeland, at Bre men, Friday and Saturday. On Satur day she was joined by her sister, Mrs. It. Lee Sharpe, and they proceeded to Cedartown, where they will spend a week with friends and relatives. -The Literary Musical Club is mak ing broader its radius of usefulness, to- wit: Its last session was held at the A. & M. School. It’s a little bit per plexing to both the married and unmar ried men of this neck of woods to un derstand why the ladies composing the club should take “Taming of the Shrew” for their study for this occa sion. The male population look upon this act on the part of the Indies as a seditious proceeding. They think, by studying this play, their females will avoid the mistakes made by Kate, the Shrew, and thereby become more diili- cult to control than was that haridan, with less chance to tame them. Ladies, for the sake of peace and harmony in your households, explain just what your purpose is in studying this before your husbands and sweethearts go wild. 1 am sure you would not break from the silken ties of matrimony, but of this convince (each of you) your man, for he is growing daffy for fear that you will establish a gyneeocracy. Indi vidually, permit me to say, Long live the gynecrats! -Col. Sidney Holderness, Carroll ton’s silver - tongued, mullilluous- phrased, spellbinding orator and advo cate, after a brief business sojourn in Atlanta returned Tuesday. We are pleased to chronicle the fact that Mrs. A. 1’. Travis, who. has been quite ill for the past few days, is improving. —Mr. Ormond Haile, who has been threatened with an attack of appendi citis, after a week or ten days’ confine ment is able to attend to business. It must be a Spitsbergen day when the small bov does not hail with joy a cold spoil that will burst the pipes about the school buildings. The young sters have had a few gala days recent ly, owing to burst pipes caused by the recent cold snap. — Mr. Lester McClure, of LaFayette, Ala., has made a business engagement with the C. M. Tanner Grocery Co., and will make this his home. Mrs. L. C. Taylor and little son. of Newnan, are visiting the former’s par ents, Mr. and Mrs. G. T. Jackson. that has taken the former into its am ple scope. Did I say it had died away - the custom of attending sale-days? Yes, except in Carroll God bless her people !—who commemorate a custom now considered archaic- the sale-day habit a link between the present and the past. The personal prowess feature of these gala day festivities has grown into innocuous desuetude with the pass ing of home-made liquor. The bullies strip no more to their waists and enter the arena to chew oil' each other’s ears, that one may he called the champion scrapper. He who has never seen a Carroll county first Tuesday attendance would do well to make a pilgrimage to this Mecca of first Tuesday habitues, for it is unique. The clans begin to gather on Monday, and by Tuesday noon they swarm into town by thousands. It is the custom with a farmer who lives a few miles from town to put off coming until this carnival day—of which the first Tuesday in August is consid ered the big sale-day of the year. It is then he has "laid by” his “crap,” is rested, frisky and frolicksome. The commercial spirit seems to dominate all comers. Each one brings something to “swap.” In live stock they’ve any thing from a rooster to a mule; in per sonal effects, anything from a razor to a musket. In fact, there is nothing made (usually old and semi-worthless) that does not find its way into this ag gregation. Guns and pistols in all stages of dilapidation are borne in a negligee manner by most of the patri- ots. They remind one of a “befo’ de wah” militia muster, except they’ve no “captings,” “kurnels,” nor “gin’- rals. ” Here is your commercial troub adour, with a couple of guitars swung across his shoulders, seeking some un wary wight upon whom to unload his instruments for a little “boot.” He engages the attention of a yap with a forked fowling-piece of the percussion type, with one hammer gone. They “swap.” The troubadour is lacking in gun lore, and the gunner knows even less of a guitar; but they “trade” just to be in the fashion. There is a bunch of twenty or more improvised jockeys with horses, mules, asses and oxen, dickering with a zeal and earnestness that would make the New York Stock Exchange think there was something doing. The personnel of the equine and bovine specimens here on ’change are not a fair sample of those taken to the Atlanta “hoss show.” The salient points about their hips and spine are generally sharp enough to snag light ning. They are just good “trading” stock, and answer the purpose. Observe that young fellow with corduroy breeches stuffed into his boots, a ten- cent hull-rush hat whose latitude of brim reaches the outer points of his shoulders, the loose folds of his hickory shirt gathered amidship by the loving embrace of an old belt with “U. S.” on its big, oblong buckle. He sits tail or-fashion under the tail-end of a cov ered ox-wagon, with the hemisphere of a forty-pound watermelon in his lap. He gouges great hunks of the crisp, red meat, which disappear rapidly down his thirsty gullet. It is a Carroll county watermelon eaten by her son. See this baker’s dozen of lightly laden merchants, each having a gun or pis tol for sale or exchange. One has a jjAKS NfrPoWbEf^ | The most highly refined and healthful of baking' powders. Its constant use in almost every American household, its sales all over the world, attest its wonderful popularity and usefulness. appearance, but the bearer is a meek and lowly son of Ham. Another, a fierce mustachioed gentleman, wears in his waistband a couple of pepper-box revolvers. Most of the others have the conventional guns of the day, but all are clamorous to “swap.” I would make further endeavor to give a de scription of the kaleidoscopic scene, but the impulssant powers within balk at the effort. Come and see it! --After an absence of a month on a business trip to Mississippi, Tennessee and Alabama Hon. H. W. Long has re turned home, to the eminent satisfac tion of his friends. As of yore, the string is on the outside of his door and the bull-dog tied in the back-yard. Wel come again to the bosom of your dearly beloved Carrollton friends, my Chris tian friend. —The activities made manifest by those who are laboring for the erection of a Confederate monument to Carroll’s gallant Confederate soldiers (living and dead) has assumed a protean aspect. Individual men, women and children are at work for its accomplishment; schools have made organized efforts for the same purpose. The latest and most successful effort by an individual for raising funds for the monument was the domino party given Wednesday af ternoon by that excellent lady, whose heart and soul are wrapt in the cause, Mrs. A. K. Snead. A large number of ladies were in attendance on the games. Admission to the plays was 25 cents per guest. The sum of $25 was raised. The beautiful decorations of the Snead horrie with Confederate flags was a fea ture that awakened patriotic emotions in the hearts of the many guests. —Charlie Ball, the saddle-colored chef de cuisine at the A. & M. School, complimented the teachers with a ’pos sum supper Wednesday afternoon. —Mrs. N. J. Tumlin has returned from Durham, N. C., where she has been the guest for a couple of weeks of her daughter, Mrs. Mitchell. —We regret to learn of the illness of Mrs. P. P. Kingsberry. —Carroll county raises more cotton than do the natives of Punjab, an East Indian district as large as Geor gia, and of a quality superior to the cream-colored long staple of Egypt. The receipts at Carrollton up to Feb. 1 were 27,000 bales, and before the sea son is over the total will reach 30,000- all poorly (lacked in jute bagging. It would look good in coarse cotton wmps. —Harvey Brown, Esq., who has been a legionary in Uncle Sam’s army for a couple of three-year enlistments, is at home with relatives. —Hon. L. C. Mandeville is taking os teopathic treatment in Atlanta, whither he goes weekly. He is being greatly benefited by the treatment. —Col. Jesse D. Smith, the veteran horse dealer of this mule market, has just returned from Tennessee and Ken tucky, whence he brings a couple of car-loads of fine mules. He stopped and looked over the battlefield of Murfrees boro, where he plucked a cedar walking cane from a cane bush, and presented the same to Hon. L. C. Mandeville. —Miss Jennie Mae Walker visited LaGrange Sunday. —Miss Maiie Bradley, who has been spending a brief holiday with home- folks, returned Monday to her studies at Wesleyan. —The soeurs seraphine (sisters of charity) have their province in the economy of the All-Wise. In the main it is woman who demonstrates unsel fishness in pure and undefiled altruism. We note Miss Nannie Kennedy has just returned from Atlanta, where she was called to see her friend, Miss Parker, who is seriously ill. Though not a “sis ter.” yet Miss Kennedy is possessed of those divine attributes that mark the devotees of the “veil.” —The Carroll Free Press, a hebdom adal that always “has an eye to the main chance,” gives this bit of timely warning information for him who seeks to make investments in phials loaded with brain-fulminating liquids: “Flor ida anticipates an increase of business after July 1 in this year of grace. Af ter the expiration of this period Chat tanooga won’t be in it. Verbum sat. sapienti.” —Jimmy Garrett divides his time be tween this port of entry and Atlanta. He expends six and two-thirds of his time here. —While her liege lord, Col. S. J. Boykin, is convincing the agrarian pro ducers of the “fleecy” that a modicum of guano will greatly add to the profit- sharing end of the transaction, his es timable wife makes an occasional en deavor to entertain her frierds at dom inoes for the benefit of the monument fund. Her latest and most delightful effort was that of Tuesday afternoon. —Carl Holmes, of Atlanta, (don’t swoon; I’m going to pun.) who is spending a week at home, says there are no homes in that town so dear to him as his Carrollton home. He is just a home-loving boy, warp and woof, and has home made ideas that will wear like a home-made brogan. Happy Hooligan never appeared more at home on the tow-path than does Carl as he ambles about his happy home. —‘‘Westward the course of empire flows,” and occasionally other people flow in the same direction. Mr. W. W. West flowed into Cedartown Tuesday. It is said on reliable authority that Mr. West did not allow any of that fluid that made Hoboken famous to flow down his gullet. —The esoteric orders anticipate ”a feast of reason and a flow of soul” on Sunday, 14th inst., when Rev. Geo. D. Harris will edify them at a service held at the First Baptist church. —Miss Sada Thomasson is spending a week or ten days with Atlanta friends. —The ministers’ association met at the study of Rev. W. E. Dozier, pastor of the Presbyterian church. Tuesday morning. Rev. Geo. D. Harris con ducted devotional exercises, and Rev. A. W. Quillian discussed the subject of “Sermon Construction.” —Mr. Jas. W. Fitts, of Meridian, Miss., spent several days the past week with his family, who are residing with Mrs. D. G. Wilson. —After a pleasant week’s visit to friends Miss Cleo Chapman returned to Cedartown Monday. Throat Troubles Weaken the Sys tem. A serious illness is often brought on by a neglected sore throat. All throat troubles invariably weak en the system and should not be allow ed to go unchecked. A gargle made with twelve drops of Sloan’s Liniment in half a glass of wa- t'>r Will break up a sore throat. Sloan’s Liniment is an excellent rem edy for tonsilitis, croup, asthma and bronchitis. Applied freely to the out side of the throat and chest, it draws out the inflammation, reduces the swelling and relieves any soreness. Twelve drops of this Liniment in half a glass of water makes a splendid gargle. Mr. Albert W. Price, of Fredonia, Kans., writes: “We have used Sloan’s Liniment in the family for about a year, and find it an excellent relief for colds and bay fever attacks. Two drops of the Liniment in a teaspoonful of water will stop coughing and sneez ing instantly.” Mr. L. T. Hurst, of Coatesville, Ind., R. F. D. No. 1, writes: “I find your Liniment the best remedy I have ever tried for sore throat, either for horse or man. I once cured a case of sore throat on myself the second day and al most the first night, which had contin ued for over three weeks, under con stant treatment of thiee physicians, (I was traveling,) and it was getting worse.” There was a chap who thought black- smithing looked simple and easy, and so, being out of work, he decided to have a try at it. He went to a smith and asked for a job. “Well.” said the smith, “you are a strong, likely-looking young fellow. What experience have you had?” “Eleven years,” was the prompt an swer. “All right, I’ll try you.” said the blacksmith. “Shoe that mare while I go to dinner.” The smith, on his return from din ner, frowned and said to the new hand: “Why, haven’t you got that mare shod yet?” The bluffer bit his lip, flushed and replied: “I can’t get her confounded foot Jin the vise.” High living is the limit of many a man's lofty ideals.
