The Athens Foundry gives notice
through our advertising columns that they
are now prepared to test boilers and steam
gauges. We consider this announcement
of sufficient importance to call especial at
tention to it in this way. Our country is
filling up rapidly with small engines, many
of them in careless hands, and life and
property are in continual danger from their
use. Il these boilers were tested at stated
periods, the owner would always know
just what pressure of steam could be safely
used, and with reasonable care could avoid
> the danger of raising ste imto too great a
pressure for the strength of the boiler. We
believe some of the Stater have been 1 in
dering such tests obligatory on all steam
users; but whether compelled or not, en
• gine owners fur their own safety should
not neglect so important a matter.
Death of Mrs. Franklin.
This estimable lady, the widow of the
late Co). L Franklin, died at her home in
this city on Sunday morning last, after a
long and painful illness. Mrs Franklin
was well known and universally esteemed
in the community. The bereaved have
the sympathy, of a large circle of friends.
Death of Miss Jennie Saye,
This estimable young lady, daughter of
Mr. W. N. Saye, of Atlanta, died at the res
idence of Mr J W Saye, in this county, at
about five o’clock last Sabbath evening, in
the 20th year of her age. She had left her
home in Atlanta only a few days before,
with the hope that the change might be
beneficial, as she had been in bad health
for some months. A sudden change for
the worse quickly terminated her life. Miss
Saye had been a member of the Presbyte
rian church for four or five years, and was
a young Christian of bright promise. The
stricken parents did not reach here until
the morning after her death. Xhe remains
were placed by loving hands in the church
yard at Bethaven. The bereaved friends
have our sincere sympathies.
Mr. Jno Ash, one of our most popular

couple were tendered a reception by Mr.
W. C. Ash, brother of the groom, on the
night of their arrival here, and the enjoy
ment of the occasion was greatly height

have our best wishes for their future hap
THE GA. ROAD AND CARR ESTATE.
The extension of the Ga. Road has given
rise to some statements that a suit would
be brought bj’ the heirs of Win. A. Carr
against the Ga. Road, for the recovery of
the lands and improvements now used for
the freight and passenger depot. Mr. Alex
R. Jones, of Atlanta, who married a grand
daughter of Col. Carr, has been in the city
during the week and from him we have
learned the following particulars. The
land mentioned was given to the Road by
Col. Carr, for the purpose of electing a
depot &c., tbrereon. It was a condition in
in the deed, that should the Road discon
tinue the use of the depot to be erected on
the land specified in the deed, either for
freight or passengers, or should the Road
ever be extended beyond its present termi
nus, the property with all improvements
should revert to the heirs of the donor
No suit has as yet been brought. No de
mand has yet been made of the Road and
consequently no refusal by them, both of
which will be done Delore any suit is con
templated. In whatever is done the heirs
will be represented by Mr. Jones, and Mr.
E. K. Lumpkin, who also married a grand
daughter of Col. Carr. No other attorneys
have been employed by the heirs, nor is 41
likely there will be.
Chips From the lluilders.
Real estate in our city has been on the
rise for the past three years or more, but
never before in her history has property
attained the value it lias at present. This
fact connected with the sound of the saw
and hammer that is heard in our midst,
gives our city a decided boom.

Capt. Brumby’s new residence on Han

sents something new in its architecture and
is one of the prettiest buildings in our city.
In addition to the above there are quite
a number of smaller cottages going up in
different portions of the city, most all of
which are rented before they are built. So
that all in all, with new houses going up
all over our city, the Ga. R. R. extension,
telephone exchange and the water works in
the near future, we think we can climb the
fence and toss our hat in the air, for the
future of our city. In passing, it might
not be out of place to state that a prominent
bachelor is talking of leaving the down
town bailiwick and building a residence in
Cobbham, where he can raise chickens,
entertain his friends and sit on the front
porch and see the girls ride by. Our sym
pathy for Cobbham leads us to express the
wish, the rumor is incorrect.
The Superior Court, which has been in
session for three weeks, tried but a few
cases this week.
Monday morning was consumed in an
unsuccessful attempt to find some case
ready for trial.
Monday afternoon the case of Charles
Green vs. Jos. Jacobs, suit for S3OO dam
ages. The plaintiff was represented by
Messrs, Lumpkin and Brown, the defen
dants by Russell and Rucker, the jury
found a verdict for the defandant.
The next case was a rule nisi against
Burrell H. Yerby who was defended by R.
B. Russell, and the State represented by
Solicitor Mitchell. The defendant’s plea
was extenuating circumstances, in view
of which Mr Yerby was only fined $25 01),
which was a very small fine for the charge.
Tuesday the case of B. O.W. Rose vs. 8. J.
Sloman was tried. The jnry brought a ver
dict for the plaintiff for sls and costs.
The next case tried was Miss Elizabeth
Colt, vs. John R. Crane, administrator of
John H. Colt, being a suit for one-half the
profits of Colt’s mill for four years. The
jury found the amount sued for, to wit,
$2,000, for the plaintiff, Miss Colt.
On Wednesday the case of the State, vs.
Jos. E. Thurmond, charge I with stealing
a horse from a negro man, was Called anti
occupied the entire day. The state’s evi
dence consisted of connected links of cir
cumstantial evidence which left no doubt
that the defendant was guilty, unless his
witnesses could disprove the state’s evi
dence to the satisfaction of the jury. This
they failed to do, and the jury found the
defendant guilty with a recommendation
The defendant claimed that he won the
horse and hat from the negro, playing
seven-up, on Sunday morning; that the
negro was drunk and proposed to play
first, and having no money, they had finally
agreed to play’ horse against horse, the best
two gatrttes out of three ; that he beat the
negro and took the horse home. The de
fendant explained bis concealment of the
horse on the ground that he knew tiie title
to property won by gambling was not good.
On Thursday the Judge sentenced him to
serve six years in the penitentiary. A mo
tion will be made for a new trial.
The case of Patman vs. Patman, involv
ing $20,000, was continued on account of
the illness of Col. Thurmond.

We hear it stated on good authority that
the colloquies which were so much enjoyed
last Commencement, will again be one of
the interesting items on the programmes
this year. They are confined to the Junior

Last Friday evening, Mr. James 11. Pit
man, of LaGrange, rose in the Demosthe
nian Society, and moved that a committee
of three be appointed to draft resolutions
expressing the sympathy of the Society with
the family of Senator Hill in the great af
fliction which has befallen the Senator.—
Appropriate remarks were made, and when
the vote was taken every man rose to his
The writer was looking over the valuable
collection of autograph letters owned by
the Demosthenian Society the other day,
and was struck with this fact: The letters
from such men as Buchanan, Polk, John
son, Toombs, Hill, Davis, Lee, Longfellow,
Irving, and others of note, were exceedingly
short, and contained nothing but an ac
knowledgement of compliments and honors
given; while the letters from men of less
note were long, and contained advice and
suggestions to the young men.
The University Board of Trustees con
sists of thirty-two members, not including
the Agricultural Trustees. It may not
have any significance, but it is a fact never
theless, that out of the thirty-two, only one
has a son in the University. The majority
of the students come from those sections of
the State which are not blessed with Trus
tees. There are some three or four Trus
tees of the University who hold similar
offices in other literary institutions.
The University is in a most prosperous
condition, and has every guarantee of fu
ture prosperity. The only dark cloud
which lines its horizon is the fact that
some of its alumni seem to be indifferent to
its fate. The registers of Yale, Vanderbilt,
the Virginia University, and the University
of the South, show the names of sons of the
alumni of the University of Georgia.
Some people seem to think that the pres
ent set of students here Jis much younger
than usual. The average age of the boys is
nineteen; some are between twenty-four
and five, and a few are as young as four
teen. Possibly the Senior Class has the
youngest members in college with the ex
ception of the Freshman Class.
The Seniors were talking the other day
about the vocations in life they expected to
pursue, and if we are hot mistaken eight
will be lawyers, six teachers, four civil en
gineers, two chemists, four ministers, two
journalists, and the remainder will follow
