THE INDUSTRIAL HOME.
The Chronicle had the pleasure
yesterday of presenting to our peo
ple the 3d quarterly report of the
Athens Industrial Home. It mer
ited the attentive and careful per
usal which it no doubt received. It
shows that the ladies in charge have
utilized with all care and economy
the means at their disposal, and that
dozens of beneficiaries of their char*
ity are to be found in our city. In
addition to the business portion of
the communication, however, there
is another part of the report
which demands the attention of the
public. It is an appeal for aid in
prosecution of the good work in
which these good ladies are engaged.
This one sentence in that report
contains a-world of meaning and
appeal to the people of our city: “If
we only had more money, the go.>d
we could do is incalculably” We
are certain that it is necessary only
to call the attention of our people
to the needs of this worthy charity
to enable it to receive the assistance
Which it deserves. Athens has never
been backward when any work of
this kind has demanded its attens
tion, and we are sure that we risk
nothing in saying that the people of
this city will support the ladies who
are conducting this home, in their
efforts to do good to the worthy poor
of our city. The report states that
the Home has recently lost eight of
its honorary members by resignation,
and that the prospects for increased
work this winter are not very flat
tering. We can but urge the public
generally with the greatest earnest
ness to throw into the hands of this
Home all work which they possibly
can; the work is not a private one,
but one in which the whole public
are interested. The rigors of winter
are fast approaching when, in addi
tion to the expense of food, there
will be the additional ones of fuel
and heavier clothing to be sustained
by our poor. And when the suffering
and needy people of our city appeal
to this Home for aid, we trust that it
will be said to the honor of our city
that they did not go away empty
handed. Such demands upon the
charity of the Home will be frequent
during the next few months. We
submit to our people, with the ut
most confidence that it will be sat
isfactorily answered, the query of
these worthy ladies. “How can we
meet this demand.?”

MR. BERNER’S SPEECH.
In behalf of the people of this
flection of the state we extend to the
able orator, who so eloquently spoke
for the enforcement of the State
Constitution on Thursday our sin
cere congratulations. From all
Mr. Berner’s address in
support of the Olive bill was one of
those eloquent and convincing ad*«
dresses which enchain the attention
and control the judgment of its
hearers. For more than two hours,
Mr. Berner pictured, in words not
easy to be forgotten by his auditors,
the dangers of railroad mcnopoty
and the necessity of controlling their
powers by appropriate legislation.—
Reinvested a subject, upon which
much has been said and written,
With new power and rew life ; and
the unstinted applause which wae
bestowed upon his effort, showed the
admiration in which his sentiments
are held, even by his opponents.—
The speech delivered by Mr. Berner
not only a personal triumph ; it
was a victory for the cause which he
has espoused and to which he has
been dt voting the best talents at bis
disposal. It was a victory for the
cause of the people, against that of
monopoly. That this is true, is
shown by the fact that the motion
to indefinitely postpone the consid
eration of the bill was subsequently
defeated by a vote of 77 to 67. This
is a pretty fair index of the growing
strength of the measure in the House,
and the prospects are bright that
when the bill comes up for final con
sideration, next Wednesday, the
cause of the people will triumph and
monopoly will no longer vaunt itself
in the eyes of the people whom it is
The people have spoken in no un
certain tones for the passage of this
bill, and it now s (ms probable that
th ir representatives will respect
their wishes in this matter, and next
Wednesday cause justice to tri
umph over the violent and unwaver
i ig opposition which it has received
at the hands of monopolistic news
papers. as wed as speakers.
Reducing the Surplus.
The disposition ot the Surplus in the U.
S. Treasury engages the attention of our
Statesman, but a more vital question has
our attention, and that is the reduction of
the Surplus Consumptives. Since the dis
covery and introduction of Dr. King’s
New Discovery for Consumption, there
has been a marked decrease n> tin* mortal
ity from this dreadful disease, and it s
possible to still further reduce the numb* r
of Consumptives. How ? By keeping
constantly at hand a bottle of Dr. King’s
New Discovery and using according 10
directions, upon the appearance ot the
first symptoms, such as a Cough, a C Hd* »>
Sore Throat, a Chest, or Side Pain Takei

W. P. McDaniel, Atlanta, Ga., writes :

Mrs. Matilda Nichols, Knoxville, Tenn„
writes : I had catarrh six years and a mos
distressing cough, and my eyes were much

John M. Davis, Tyler, Texas, writes: “t.

inflammatory rheumatism, which six botth

I have not felt the slightest pain since.”

The importance of purifying the blood can.
not be overestimated, for without pure blood
you cannot enjoy good health.
At this season nearly every one needs a
good medicine to purify, vitalize, and enrich
the blood, and we ask you to try Hood’s
PAfMlliai* Sarsaparilla. It strengthens I
rcuuilcil and bunds up the system,
creates an appetite, and tones the digestion,
while it eradicates disease. The peculiar
combination, proportion, and preparation
of the vegetable remedies used give to
Hood’s Sarsaparilla pecul- -p
iar curative powers. No ■ O lISCIT
other medicine has such a record of wonderful
cures. If you have made up your mind to
buy Hood’s Sarsaparilla do not be induced to
take any other instead. It is a Peculiar
Medicine, and is worthy your confidence.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla is sold by all druggists.

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
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
which is sold by single pieces, or in
sets, at about one half the cost of
real China. We also have a complete
DINNER, TEA AND
which we are selling as low as they
can be bought in Georgia.
