If I lay 'neath the deepest sea Would there be one to weep—one kind. Sweet face that mi^ht be wet with tears. One voice to break with poignant grief? Would there be one that thiough the years Might sigh because my (light was brief? Ia there one soul that longs to cleave In gladness and in woe to mine? Ia there one, when I achieve A triumph, deems my gifts divine? Ah. if I knew there might be one To give applause, to watch and wait. How blithely should my tasks be done. . How bravely I could work and wait! Is there one who would gladly lay A trusting hand in mine and strive To give me cheer upon the way, To keep my dearest hopes alive? Is there one heart that beats for me? I would that I could learn, somehow; There are some buttons that should be Sewn on my trousers, even now. Summer rates on all goods, trade with us. Come and 4 H. C. ARNALL MDSE. CO. i Some Georgia History. Chattar.oopra Times. One of the heroic figures of war times in Georgia was Gov. Jos. E. Brown, father of the present Governor of Georgia. He was a man of ability and courage, and served his State well. It is related of him that when news reached Milledgeville, the then capital of the State, that Sherman’s army had invaded Georgia, he sent a military message to the Legislature, then in session, suggesting that “the Governor and the Legislature adjourn to the front to aid in the struggle until the enemy is repelled, and to meet again, if we should live, at such time ard place as the Governor may designate.’’ An article in the current number of Uncle Remus’ Magazine has a readable account of the affair by Dr. R. J. Mas sey, at that time head of the Brown hospital at Milledgeville. A number of patriotic and soul-Stirring speeches were made over Gov. Brown’s message. The appropriation bills were passed and a recess was taken for dinner. The record goes on farther, and Dr. Massey explains that while the members were eating Gov. Brown received a message telling him that Sherman’s army was bearing down upon Milledgeville in large numbers. There wars no evening session. Dr. Massey says: “How many loyal legislators rallied to the standard records fail to show.” The old inhabi tants of the town still aver that they stood not upon their going. Men who could not hire horses and buggies for a thousand dollars a day footed it. Gov. Brown seems to have gone to the peni tentiary to get an army. We quote again from Dr. Massey : “The last official act of Gov. Brown before leaving Milledgeville, on Satur day afternoon, Nov. 19, was to require the penitentiary convicts to aid Quar termaster-General Foster in getting upon the railroad train all stores pos sible belonging to the State. By this one act Gen. Foster and Gov. Brown saved the State property approximate ly half million dollars in value. After this he formed the men into a military company, appointing the celebrated burglar and skillful physician. Dr. Rob erts, their captain commanding. In a patriotic speech Gov. Brown touching ly impressed upon them the fact of their being pardoned and fully restored to citizenship. He reminded them of their duty as Southern patriots—espe cially to the State of Georgia. Then each man’s name was called and the Governor pardoned him. To the credit of these men, be it said, they served faithfully to the end of the war, very few deserting.” Dr. Massey was given a detachment of Federal troops to guard the hospital and State Library, and he now ex presses the conviction that he was the only Confederate in the United States who ever had the satisfaction of giving orders to Federal soldiers and seeing that they were obeyed to the letter. He marched them through the streets of Milledgeville, from one point to an other, and protected property worth several millions of dollars. But for this service none of the records of the State would have been saved. Strag glers were ransacking the town, pil laging, destroying and burning every thing they got their hands on, and were stopped, according to Dr. Massey, through a petition in perion to Gen. Sherman. Many Federal soldiers were being cared for at Brown hospital, a fact which doubtless accounts for the action of the Federal commander. Gov. Joseph E. Brown made himself famous as Governor of his State from j 1357 to 1865. He was elected three ] times, and his devotion to duty is part j of the history of Georgia. He was one of the iron-blooded men of the times. ■ His son, who has just been inaugura-j ted Governor of Georgia, is said to be of the same type of men. Anyway, he is ; in the shadow of a great name, and we J believe he will so discharge his duty as I to leave the family escutcheon untar- I nished. WESTON, Ocean-to-Ooean Walker, Said recently: “When you feel down j and out. feel there is no use living, just take your bad thoughts with you and walk them off. Before you have walked a mile things will look rosier. Just try it.” Have you noticed the in crease in walking of late in every com munity? Many attribute it to the com fort which Allen’s Foot-Ease, the anti septic powder to be shaken into the shoes, gives to the millions now using it. As Weston has said, “It has real merit. ” A. & W. P. Line to the Sea. Macon Telegraph. 17th Inst. As indicated in The Telegraph of yes terday, another direct line to the sea, with the same railroad operating to both the West and the North, is assured for Macon, if the projectors can secure suitable terminal facilities and right- of-way privileges from the city of Ma con. The matter will be definitely deter mined within the next two weeks, fol lowing a visit to this city by Mr. Charles A. Wickersham, president of the Atlanta and West Point railroad, whose company now has the plan un der consideration. President Wickersham lias been in active correspondence with leading business men and bankers of Macon, and with the Chamber of Commerce. A letter from him was received by the latter’organization yesterday, to the ef fect that he would come to Macon in about ten days for the purpose of con ferring with officials and seeing just what grants could be secured by his railroad. It is the plan of the Atlanta and West Point railroad to build a link from Sofke to Macon, after establish ing proper terminal facilities and workshops here, thus enabling the At lanta and West Point to make direct connections to the sea. The Atlanta and West Point operates to LaGrange, where the traffic would be taken up by or transported through over the line of the Macon and Bir mingham to Sofke. The new link would then bring the road to Macon, and connections would be made here with the Macon, Dublin and Savannah railroad for Savannah, or for a new seaport. The Atlanta and West Point would either absorb the Macon and Birmingham by purchase or would se cure the use of its tracks as far as Sofke. Arrangements for connections with the Macon, Dublin and Savannah would also he made. The proposed link from Sofke would enter the city below the lower reserve and would necessitate laying of track over a considerable portion of this ter ritory. A terminal site would also be located in the city reserve, below Sev enth street. It is stated that the position of the Atlanta and West Point railway is this: It the city will allow right-of- way privileges and grant a terminal location out of the city reserve, the At lanta and West Point will then estab lish the connecting link from Sofke to Macon, operate through trains from Atlanta to the seaboard, and thus give Macon and this territory a new and di rect route to both the South and the West. The railroad authorities have had the matter under close consideration for some time, and have thoroughly can vassed the sentiment in this city through the medium of correspondence with the leading business men and in stitutions. As a result. President Wickersham and other officials will he here in about ten days to secure a defi nite understanding. The Chamber of Commerce is exert ing every effort in behalf of the propo sition. Secretary Burns is very san guine of securing other valuable influ ence and assistance in moving the city authorities to take proper uction. The Farmer Who Becomes a Town La borer. Dr. Sauman A. Knapp. I have no sympathy with the unrest of our rural population, We are upon the eve of radical changes for the bet terment of country conditions. To-day the safest place for investment is the farm. Land values will increase rap idly with increasing population. They will more than double in thirty years. Already the abandoned farms of New York and New England are being bought by capitalists for investment. There is many a man planning to sell his paternal acres in the country for a pittance and invest the proceeds in a cottage in the town—and then earn the support of his family by daily toil, ft is the act of an irrational man. He does not stop to think that that farm will give him a home and support and soon quadruple in value. He fails to note the possibilities of rapidly in creasing his wealth by the planting of valuable trees, and he voluntarily ex changes the rights of a king and the privileges ot a freeman for a daily wage and the badge of service. The prosperity of the cities, so far as relates to the masses, is illusory. The number of toilers who finally ac quire a reasonable reserve for old age in the country as compared with the same class in the cities, is ten to one taking the whole country into account While the wage is high in the cities the costs of rents and living are in pro portion. The multiplied attractions in duce a habit of liberal spending, not conducive to economy. The small farmer may earn less, but he can save more. About the only thing some departed husbands leave their wives is—perfect ly satisfied.
