day, wafted from the rose gardens of j
Gul, and the etherial blue that KiIda a
perfect day, were concomitant couriers |
ordered by Nature to render happy
those splendidly attired Ruests—dem
oiselle and matron alike who attend
ed the Literary Musical Club, whose
silting was at the elegant home of
Mrs. I,eon T. Mandeville on Thursday
afternoon. The charming hostess ap-
pared at her heat which, to say,
leaves ttie wide realm of conjecture to
paint a lovely picture. Beside the club
habitues, a number of invited guests
were present. The delicacies served
were lit food for the gods. The musi
cal programme was a splendid reflec
tion of the eminent musicians that en
gendered it, viz: Danse Caprice, Op.

Our estimable young friend, Mr. P.
W. Reese, has accepted a lucrative po
sition at Cristobal, Panama. It is
gratifying to note that the young man
goes where the fruit of Uncle Sum’s
mint may be scooped up by the ladle
ful. While his going is a source of re
gret to all, there is one heart to which
it brings genuine heartache. Her
smile to him brings transports of joy—
his departure brings sadness to both.
Weep not, fair maid; your ‘‘honey
boy” will return soon with a cargo of
cash. Then the banns may be pub
lished, and then his coin may serve to
transport you on a hymeneal tour of
both the New and Old World. There
should be nothing more desirable among
the demoiselles than to make a happy
alliance with such a gentleman as my
young friend, Reese.
Senator Fred Wilson, who manipu
lates mines and mining stocks, is
among Carrollton friends this week.
He is recently from Savannah, and now
proclaims “headquarters in the sad

kens that there may be some big finan
cial deal cooking.

Mr. Chas. M. Tanner, Miss Lizzie Cur

The Smiths, like other people, have
an occasional idiosyncracy. There is
Dr. J. C., who formerly had a “vine
and lig tree” up at Sand Hill, under
which he was wont to worship. But,
alas! the traveling hug got in behind
him, and he left Sand Hill for Mans
field. He now complains bitterly that
there’s no Christian church at Mans
field, and that he hungers and thirsts
for his good old Bethany church ser
vices. It is reported that the bug is be
hind him again, and he’s coming back
to Bethany and Sand Hill. Come back,
brother; I don’t know a better place
than Sand Hill from which to begin the
journey to the New Jerusalem.
Information comes which causes
me sorrow. From a recent newspaper
item I learn of the death of Capt. W.
J. DuTey, of Galveston, Tux. Capt.
Jeff Uuffey was a native of Spalding
county, Ga., and was among the first
to enter the Confederate army. He
was u member of (jo. B, 5th Ga. Regt.,
which regiment was mustered into ser
vice at Macon on April 9, 1861. He
served through the war, and led his
men on many hard-fought fields. The
regiment was a part of the Western
army, and witnessed all the phases of
active warfare. We, the old comrades
of this gallant soldier, deplore his
death. We recognize in his taking off
the inexorable hand of Fate; but,
thanks to the beneficent Power that
controls our destinies, Capt. Duffey
was permitted to reach the ripe age
of 73 full of years, full of honors, and
with a handsome provision of the good
things of life. He was a bachelor, and
leaves three brothers and one sister,
Prof. Lawrence Duffey, of McDonough,
being one of the brothers. The writer
had the distinguished honor of being a
member of Capt. Duffey’s company,
and can testify that the Confederate
army had few braver or more patriotic
soldiers. Peace to his ashes.

He is just an ordinary, burr-headed,
soot-colored "coon,” who, by dint of a
shortage in the labor market, was
brevetted janitor of the city’s public
buildings. In the scale of intelligence,
he’s an average ; in presumption, he’s
a nigger; as a detective, he’s got
Pinkerton’s pluguglies skinned. This
prodigy is named Bill. A month or six
weeks ago a “coon”—for want of a bet
ter name we’ll call him John Smith—
flew the municipal coop, because there
was a city warrant against him. The
chief made it known to Bill that John
Smith was wanted, and wanted bad,
and if he could get any information
about the leg bail absentee to let him
know. Bill took it for granted that
this information gave him full police
authority; whereupon he stealthily
procured the chief’s "nippers” and pis
tol from his desk and went gunning for
the Smith nigger. He found Smith at
his home in Sticktown, and ordered
him to throw up his hands as he
brought the bright steel barrel of the
chief's gun down on him, making
known that he was the chief’s deputy
arresting officer. Smith’s hands flew
up at the word of command, and Bill
put the "nippers” on and locked him
up in the calaboose. This high-handed
business outraged the feelings of the
colored citizens of Sticktown. They
got busy and began to stir things up.
When the grand jury met they had Bill
indicted for pointing a gun at another,
for making an illegal arrest, and for
illegal imprisonment. Bill now lan
guishes under these charges, and walks
the public road under bonds represent
ing a thousand dollars for his appear
ance before the City Court. Our jani
tor is now a sadder but a wiser man.

sailors say. Clep is a shoveler of coin

his job ail right. A friend of his, who
also delves with' the gold of the god
dess, would marry if he had time to
turn loose the coin-bag at the mouth of
his bank’s hopper. Clep ’phoned him:
"Hold the fort, for I am coming.”
Clep, like the good boy that he is,
turned loose his coin scoop, and is now
holding down the Cardova job while his
friend is fixing to adjust the matrimo
nial harness. That’s the beginning of
J a reciprocity that the Cardovian will
repay, when Clep takes a notion to
work in double harness himself.
