Entered at the post office at Athens, Ga., for
t'ausmission through the mails us second
From the interview with Con
gressman Carlton, which we publish
in another column today, it will be
seen that the republican majority in
the next congress will be very small.
It will also be noticed that the re
publicans- have under consideration
the introduction of several bills, the
passage of which would work serious
injustice upon our people. A small
majority and a large minority in
any political body is sure to produce
scenes of excitement and of partisan
feeling. With such measures as the
bill to place congressional elections
under Federal control before the
House, it is certain that the hall of
the House of representatives will
have enacted within itself a repeti
tion of those scenes of excitement
which were characteristic of the
post-bellum period. It seems to us
that the democracy has always been
at its best when on the defensive.
At such a time its files close up and
its ranks march in solid phalanx
such as is not seen when the party
is on the aggressive. Great though
the party be in the prosecution of
measures of benefit to its people,
greater it is in defense of home, of
country and of principle.
At such a time, a Hill is always
ready to put to shame the slanders
and insinuations of a Blaine; a
Toombs is prepared to obtain the
attention, and secure the admira
tion of a whole house, in spite of the
protests of a partisan majority and
of a partisan presiding officer. The
Democracy will need such men as
Hill and her Toombs, in the next
Congress, but we have confidence in
the ability of those who represent
them. The occasion will demand
contined and watchful care, and we
expect to see the bonfires of Demo
ci acy blaze forth on every hill top
and call to consolidated ranks the
adherents of our party from every
portion of our great country. The
Democracy has only to stand fast.
The trial and trouble is only for a
season. Two years hence a sover
eign people will agaia indicate their
choice of representatives in the
lower house of National legislation.
We believe that at that time the
Democracy will gain enough ground
to place her once more in control of
the House of Representatives and
that she will thus pave her way for
a grand, a sweeping triumph in the
presidential election of 1892. Mark
the prediction 1
OUR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS.
If there is one thing of which
Athens is proud if is her schools
and colleges. In every portion of
the State Athens bears with justice
the name of the Classic City, and
with the very mention of hex* exist
ence is carried an assertion of her
right to be considered the seat of
learning not only, of the State, but
of this portion of the country. The
coming Fall and Winter promises
bright things for the educational
institutions of Athens. The Uni
versity has already begun its session
with largely increased attendance
The Lucy Cobb Institute has fol
lowed with an unprecedented list of
students. The Home School has
been taxed to its utmost capacity to
accommodate the rush of new stu
dents, and this in spite of the fact
that it has recently moved into large
Bad commodious new quarters. To
morrow Mrs. Crawford’s seminary
opens for its coming session. It is
certain that the attendance will be
1 irge at this school, as it is ate
offers. With all present and ac-
? counted for, the four educational
institutions of Athens in full run
ning order, with an unexcelled sys
tem of public schools, with a number
r of excellent private school, Athens
' proclaims to the world that she is
once more open for business. After
j the Summer vacation she once more
shelters beneath her wing the youth,
b beauty and brilliancy of Georgia,
• and many other states.
‘ Many a home in the South will

at receiving letters each day and

, Athens is once again the centre of
culture for the State, the Mecca of
J learning, and the one place in Geor
gia around which the heart-strings,of
. parents in far distant homes are en
twined. To our University boys we
say “God bless you, so
- yourselves as to win the approval of
your conscience. Athens rejoices in
your presence.”To our visitingyoung
ladies: “We love you all; your
presence is an incentive to all that
is noble, holy and beautiful.”

Rheumatism and catarrh are both blood

yiejded to treatment with B. B. B. (Botanic

( R. P. Dodge, Atlanta Ga., says: “My wife
had catarrh and nothing did her any good.
Her constitution finally failed and poison got
5 into her blood. I placed her on a use of
B. B. 8., apd to my surprise her recovery was
rapid and complete.”
'W. P. McDaniel, Atlanta, Ga-, writes : “I
was much emaciated and had rheumatism so
bad I.could not get along without crntches. I
» also had neuralgia in the head. First class
physicians did me no good. Then I tried
■ B. B. 8., and its effects were magical. I
1 cheerfully recotnmened it as a good tonic and
. quick cure.”
Mrs. Matilda Nichols, Knoxville, Tenn.,
writes : I had catarrh six years and a most
' distressing cough, and my eyes were much
. swollen. Five bottles of B. B. 8., thank God 1
a cured me.”
. John M. Dans, Tyler, Texas, writes “I
was subject a number of years to spells of
1 inflammatory rheumatism, which six bottles
| of B. B. 8., thank heaven, has entirely cured.
j. I have not felt the slightest pain since.”

A SIMPLE REPLY.
We never shrink from competition,
from any source. Neither do we
wish to give anybody the black eye,
but simply to do a fair, legitimate
business. And as a proof that our
prices are low, one can judge for
himself when we say our sales on
CHINA, TIN AND
AS WELL AS
AND OILS ’
since July Ist., 1889, are greatly in
excess of that of the same season for
the past twenty-four years.
If we have sold all the goods and
have thus given the black eye, it
was an unintended lick on our part.
The ladies are invited to call and
examine our beautiful line of

sets, at about one half the cost of
real China. We also have a complete
