ago there grew, in
a mahoganycovered valley in Hondu
ras, a stately mahogany tree, whose
umbrageous houghs were a rendezvous
for chattering parrots, frolicksome
monkeys, and the deadly stegomia.
I’assing by this lovely tree a mercenary
saw mill man beheld it and doomed it
to boards. Its slivered contents were
sent to this country. It was metamor
phosed. Behold a suite of furniture—
lit adornment for a prince’s apart
ment! if you should overgo to New-
nan, I pray you enter the Virginia
House by the front door, and proceed
directly up the stairway. Enter the
first chamber to the right of the land
ing, and there, in all the glory of the
artisan’s skill, you will find it. Its
owner is a cotton magnate, who in a
few years has wrenched from the un
willing hands of Fortune a brimming
bushel of auriferous bullion. It is he
who owns a splendid span of Kentucky
hays, and a dazzling chariot that would
have made Hhaethon’s fabled equipage
look like thirty cents.
The pedigogic I was about to say
“instinct,” hut will abridge the force
of that word by saying “disposition”
has seized me to make wise those who
have been forced to cudgel their brains
for a meaning to the words “Chateau
D'lf,” (pronounced deel’,) which I have
someth lines used in connection with the
common jail. The Chateau D’lf, made
famous by Dumas’ novel, “The Count
of Monte Cristo, ” and also as being
the prison in which republican France
incarcerated Mirabeuu and I’hilippe
Egalite, is situated on the small island
of If, two miles west southwest of Mar
seilles, France. The words “Chateau
D’lf,’’ divested of their Gallic con
struction and rendered into plain Uni
ted Stales, means, “The Castle of If,”
and, by extension, the Dungeon of If.
— After a ten-days’ encampment in

more than one of her admirers wear a
serious, faraway expression. There’s
one of her admirers who takes her de
parture so seriously that his grief and
pining is wearing him into a shoe
string. Cheer up, lay; don’t mourn
like those who are without hope, for
every day will he Sunday bye and bye.
-Judging from the embarkations
and debarkations, one would suppose
quite a number of our Carrollton folk
attended the Newnan chautauqua. It
is always worth your time and money
to visit that town.

—Most people have a hankering af
ter the unknowable. Some worry their
brains to know how it will be when
they close their eyes and ears to time,
and have that indefinable essence called
“soul” launched upon the abyss of the
outer worlds to seek a haven, and to
find it where? Most are curious to
know how the goddess of Chance will
deal with their earthly destinies—
whether good or bad fortune awaits
them. Knowing the gullability of man,

you any future divination you may call
for. If you are unmarried, you will be
married soon and happily, have a bush

them with auburn hair. O, man, know
this truth: Money will give you all
things save happiness and future
-Billy Perdue has an excellent new
touring auto, and has proven himself
such an adept in driving it that his
friends think he can cross the bridge
of A1 Sirat at a gallop without making
his head swim.
-Carrollton is to have a Chinese
damsel to visit some of our young la
dies. She is the same Miss Nyni Tsung
l,ea who has been the guest of Mrs. W.
S. Witham in Atlanta. Our people
don’t draw the color line on the copper-
colored orientals as they do on the
cifio coast. But what is infinitely
worse, the Gold Coaster thinks a white
man as good as a nigger as long as the
Caucasian behaves himself. I can see
no harm in extending the saffron-hued
lady the courtesies due her sex.

The Carroll county boy has ad
vanced more than a Sabbath day’s jour
ney in point of civilization and culture
from the cliff-dwellers of yesterday.
The simlin heads of those anthropa-
higi betokened that the foliations of
their brains were nailed to the outer
walls of their cranial exeresences—that
they’d rather eat a fat baby of an ene
my than a squab. Behold the Carroll
county lad; he has no tootli for an en
emy’s baby—the squab’s good enough
for him. Why. bless your enlightened
souls, the Carroll county boy goes to
college, and he takes anything that’s
not nailed down when offered as a
prize for intellectual supremacy. Now,
there’s Olin Bell- just a good, plain
dominecker specimen of Carroll’s
youth, who is a student at the State
University He competed for a prize
of $50 in gold, and won it hands down.
He was the best speaker in the bunch,
and knew more combinations of Greek,
Latin, French and German than the
best of his fellows. And they say he’s
mighty pert in the use U. S. English.
Well, if you don’t want a Carroll boy
to have most of the good things going,
you mustn’t leave them around.

—Is Judge Adamson a jingo? Per
haps you’d better answer the question
when I’ve put you in possession of
some facts. He advertises in a local
paper ; “ A bright boy wanted : There
will be a vacancy in the cadetship at
the U. S. Naval Academy next year to
which the Fourth district is entitled.
1 would like to hear from smart,
healthy boys between the ages of 16
and 20, who wish an opportunity to
stand the examination.” The question
arises, has the Judge and Congressman
Hobson, of Alabama, put their warlike
heads together and determined to build
a hundred “Dreadnoughts,” “Devasta
tions,” and other awe-inspiring engines
of war to add to our impuissant naval
armament? Well, if he’s that kind of
a jingo let u» pat him on the back and
sick him on. We want a navy that can
lick Germany, and while taking a
breathing spell put Togo’s tubs out of
the running. They’d be fine to lend to
England if the continental fleet should

fact that he’d have money of him or a

returned the following verdict:]
“George Bonner, who now covers the I

fooling with the right man, who pump

The commitment trial was held Mon
