GA., SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 24. 1880.
When is the Best Time of day l or It.
A very interesting discussion has
been raised in England regarding the
hour at which sensible persons ought
to be married. It is urged that, accor
ding to the English custom, marriages
are distinctly at the wrong hour, and
there is very much to be said in favor
of a reform. No doubt special licenses
can be obtained by those who care to
pay for them, and, in reality, marriages
can be performed at any hour of the
day or in any drawing room selected
n But, as a rule, people have a very pro
per prejudice in favor of going to
church as their fathers and mothors
did before them, and this samo church
going leads to the morning marriage
that is so much objected to, On two
grounds tho English method is unsatis
factory. His unbecoming and incon¬
venient- Tho most beautiful complex¬
ion will scarcely stand against the con¬
trast of white sattin and orange blos¬
soms in broad daylight, and it is a
notorious fact that brides are not always
young and pretty In the summer
time the geniel warmth of the season
partly removes the difficulty, but in
winter complexions yellow and noses
reddoned in an uncomfortablo manner.
The bridesmaids are as unanxious as
the bride to be trotted out for inspec
tion in this garish manner. If a man
wants to know when ho really looks ill
let him consult iu a chill morning of
December a looking-glass that lias its
back to the light- The spectacle is
hideous. If a woman desires to know
wiren eho is most unbecoming, it is at
a wedding breakfast in a London bouse
on a foggy morning of December. Then
again it is inconvenient. Tiro church
is over: the breakfast is short and spas
modic. Every one foals in the way un¬
til the dearbeiovod couple have depart¬
ed amidst their slippers and rice, and
it is all the more wearisome than ever.
The poulterer's boy, taking round the
trussed fowls next door, has had bis
peep: the nursemaids and loafers have
chambered into some convenient posi¬
tion; rbere has been a faint chrer below
and a few giggios from the balcony and
then all is over. A clever young lady
once pertinently asked: “What does
the bridegroom say when the carriage
drives away and alt this tomfoolery is
at an end?’ There wore various an¬
swers, ranging from ‘My adored one
and heart’s idol !’ to the practiele and
unpoeiical ‘Give us a kiss, old girl,’
and to the expression of natural relief
in a long drawn sigh. It does not very
much matter what is said, but how
much hotter would be tho solemnization
of matrimony at night. English ladies
with comploxiom aud gentlemen with
uncertain hair should think of it. A
warm church gaily lighted, the peal of
the distant organ, tho surpliced choir,
the candelabra, the decorations, the
flowers and the gas ! And afterwards !
The warm and consoling dinner, the
glitter of diamonds at candle-light, the
8peeebes after a really excellent meal—
turtle soup, oysters, and joint—instead
of a miserable, cold, indigestible side¬
board luncheon, and afterwards the
delight of getting rid of the young
people—the joy of packing them out
into the cold, there to enjoy the warmth
of their naturel affection, the pictur¬
esque ceremony of the rice aud slippers
after dark, the carriage lamps lighted,
aDd off they go, whilst the invited
guests repair to the ball room and have
a regular good dance aud jollification.
That is tho way to enjoy a wedding,
and the sooner it is tried the better for
every ODe concerned in the administra¬
tion of these cold English marriage
feasts —Philadelphia Times.
An Irishman was accused of stealing
a handkerchief of a fellow traveler, but
the owner ou finding it apologised to

and I took you Hr a gintleman.’
PUT LIFE INTO YOUR WORK.
j A young man's interest and duty
1 both dictate that ho should make him¬
self indispensable to his employers.
He should be so industrious, prompt
land careful that the accident of his
temporary absence should bo noticed
Uy his being missed. A young man
should make his employer his .■ friend* ;
b >' doil, S faithfully and minutely all
that is entrusted to him. it is a great
mistake to be over nice or fastidious
about work. Pitch iu readily and you j
will be appreciated, while the ‘high | i
toned’young man who quibbles about
what it Is and , what , , it ., is . not his place , i
to do, will get the cold shoulder. There j
is a story that George Washington once j
helped to roll a log that one of his cor- j
porals would not handle, and tho great¬
est Emperor of Russia worked as a
ghipwright in k ngiand—to learn the
business. That's just what you should
want to do. Bo energetic, look and
act with alacrity, take an interest in
your employer's success, work as
though the business was your own and 1
lot your employer know that ho may
place reliance in your word and on your .
act. Be mindful; have your mind on
your business; because it is that which
is going,to help you, not those outside
attractions which some of tho ‘boys'
ate thinking about. Take a pleasure
in work; do not go about in a listless,
formal manner, but with alacrity and
cheerfulness, and remember that while
working thus for others, you are laying
the foundation of your own success in
A Hint to Uraiii Drinkers.
Barkeepers pay, ou an average, $2
per gallon for whiskev. One gallon
contains an average of -fifty-ft- dri-oks,^ j •
and at ion cents a dunk tbo poor uian
pays $050 per gallon for his whiskey; iu
other words ho pavs $2 for the whiskey
84.50 to a man for handing it over the
bar. While it would lie better for him
not to drink, some men will have wliiss
key, and my advice to them is, this—
.Make your wifo your barkeeper. Lend
her two dollars to buy a gallon of whis¬
key for a beginning, and every lime
you want a drink go to her and pay ten
cents for it- By the time you have
drank a gallon she will have $0 50, or
enough money to refund the $2 borrow¬
ed of you, to pay for another gallon of
liquor and have a balance of 82 CO. |
Sho vvill be able to conduct future op
erations on her own capital, and when j
you become au inebriate, unable to sup
port yourself, shunned ano despised by !
respectable people, your wife wid have
enough money to keep you until you
get ready to tfil a drunkard's grave.
But had you paid would all this money to a
barkeeper, bo not have given a |
cent to bury you or a crust of bread to |
keep your children from starving.
people ever stop to calculate the cost of
dram drinking. At ten cents per drink
one drink per day will cost $36.50 per
year ; two drinks per day will cost $70;
three drinks, $109.50, and four drinks,
$140 per year. A man came to mo the
other Gay to pay tho interest on a note
of S100 I hold against him. Said he: 1 j
only receive $600 a year, and with a I
family to support lam not able to pay
my debts.’ I asked him to take a pen- !
cii to make asked a slight him calculation how often he for drank me, j
at a bar. His average was threo drinks
per day, which, by his own calculation
wasS100 50, or enough to have paid
both principal and interest ou tho note
and have $1.50 left. He was astonish¬
ed at the discovery, and is now determ¬
ined never to drink at a bar again.

Wad Icy and Imlgration.
‘Wo agree fully with Mr. Wadley in
this matter. Our State is already too
thickly peopled with those who want
help without working for it. As wo
have taken occasion to say heretofore,
we knew of no greater fallacy than tho
importance which some newspapers
and individuals are Lying to impart to
this idea of migration. Where iabor is
scaico ami wages high it benefits the
wsgej paying class f‘““» to u ' induce ,uulu '° an ““ influx ,UI,ui
of impecunious laborers, blit that does
uot benefit the resident laboring class,
for them it means lower wages. But
this is not in Georgia's condition. W T e
have an abundance of labor and it is as
cheap as it should be asked The idea
that imigrants will como aud buy land
and cultivate it need not be entertained.
Mr. Wadley is right —Qolumbus Times.

graphic communication with Portland,
Oregon, which has been interrupted for
a week, was restored to day. The

miles an hour, A large number of
houses were blown Gown, including
Bremen Hall, and the new Catholic

The storm in the country was also
very severe. The telegraph lines be¬
tween Portland and Dallas are so bur¬
ied under fallen timber that they will
have to’-be entirely rebuilt. A great
number of cattle wore killed by falling
barns and trees. It is impossible to
estimate tho value of the property de¬

reported as killed, but the loss of life
not seem to have been very great

A ROMANTIC STORY.
In the middle of tbe winter of 1834
a lire broke out in the female seminary
at Limoges, France, and spread with
such rapidity that it was feared all the
inmates would p. rush Suddenly there
came a cry that one little girl had been
loft in her room. As tbe excited spec¬
tators were beginning to pray for the
unfortunate child, a tall girl, with dis¬
heveled, blonde hair, and flowing night¬
gown, ran through tho crowd with a
shriek, ‘I’ll save her !’ that rose above
the sound of cracking timbers and the
falling masonry, dashed into tho door -
way. A loud hurrah, that was pro
longed to the echo only to bo repeated
again, attracted tho attention ->f th.
devotees, and tbo pale faced girl was
seen hurrying through tbo flames with
the terrified child. A few days thereaf¬
ter King Louis Philippe sent the hero¬
ine a gold medal for her bravery, and a
captain in the French army, who had
witnessed the girl's pluck, begged an
introduction. Tho captain was after¬
wards President of France and tho
brave girl Madame MacMahon

One night last week the wife of jus¬

deavoring to sooth him.
