it seetDS strange to us why men drink

everv reason to know that it ts tho

We say it seems strange. Is it to

.Aid. Is it because they love it ? The
rame they indulge the greater the ap

they have not tho cheek to use when
sober ? When they get eobdr they feel
weaker and poorer than ever before,

A Sail Affair.
BLAirsvillk Ga., Jan. 21st, 1880.
Mr a ditOe:—T heie was a terrible
affair took place in our county ou the
night of Jan. 5th, which resulted in the
murder of Win. Townsel. Those con¬
cerned in this cruel homicide, are sup¬
posed to be Arthur Owenby and his
son, tho brother-inlaw and nephew of
Townsel. They have been maliciously
designed toward each other for some
timo. I will not enter the full de¬
tails of this sad and deplorable oc¬
currence.- suffice it to say, whiskey was
the prime cause—as it is of almost eve
ery crime that darkens the history of
our country. When will our fellow
men learn to cease placing an enemy in
their mouths to steal away their brains,
aud cause the eternal destruction of
their undying souls? Cnly think; on
tmmday evening Townsel was in good
health, aud buoyant spirits, but.this
| foul enemy of the humau race, robbed
' him of bis and ere the last rays
| of the evening star had sank behind
the Western bids, the stroke was made
that severed soul and body. Oh ! for a
general -reformation on the subject of
temperance. Our country is degraded
and demoralized by this demon of hell,
and still the people continue its manu¬
facture, and excessive uee. I verily
believe there are persons who would
distill if it were a hanging crime. They
are as much devoted to it as the heathen
Chineotohis opium, or the rude Hot¬
tentot to his devilish shrine. In cou
elusion 1 would add; May tneannals
our country never be stained with
another deed so deplorable. Tianiiefa But^ nay eft
the day come when ' ituT
temperance shall float triumphantly
over our whole country. Then we will
rise from our fallen state, and like tho
brightest of constellations, shine among
the nations of the earth. May presper
i iry rain copiously all over our land,

of his property including the trade

Oliver C. Ross, son of a wealthy mer¬

shortly after eating his dinner he met
Alias Cavingel and both 'weut off quiet

about it. Major Ross immediately went
into his library, and, returning with a
