Of the Crand Jury of the United States
Courts at Macon.
We. the grand Jury at tbe May terra,
1884, of the United States District Court
of the western division of the southern
district of Georgia, beg as a conclusion of
our duties to submit t K e following, to-wit:
1. Judging from the small number of
violations of the laws of the United
States that we have been called upon to in
vestigate, we think that a law-abiding
spirit is prevalent among our citizens,
which attests a good state of public moral
ity and a vi gilant prosecution of offenders
by the United States courts.
2. While uttering tha above, we never
theless are compelled to say that our at
tention has been colled to the lart that
many of the witnesses who appear before
the United States courts manliest a shock
ing disregard of the truth, atul rcadilv

amiable pm* to be offered by the two
Hbislii i who were to share all theex-
jjsncs. and enjoy -mutually all the profits.
The prizes wouilbe valuable and tempting,
In order to indace the fittest competition
and tl%rery beat entries. It was proposed
that the excursion should leave Atlanta as
early aa possible on the day appointed, and
that the match should be a six-boar, go-as-
you-please, commencing at 12 oclock
and ending at S o'clock. The object of the
meeting, then, was to take the proposition
in band and come to some definite action
upon it. He was ready to hear from any
one present who desired to say anything
tin the subject.
The idea was taken up and enthusiastic
ally- discussed by every member present.
All thought It a splendid one and were in
favor of accepting it immediately. In fact,
tt. acceptance was so unanimous that
everyone almost unconsciously began to
enter into glowing preparations for tbe oc
casion. deeming It an accomplished fact
from tbe beginning.
A committee, consisting of Messrs. Jones,
lAwton and Cbestney, was appointed to
raise $300 for the necessary prizes.
Mr. W. A. Haris, as a committee of one,
was appointed to secure the park and to
make all preparations in that direction
On motion, a special committee of five,
consisting of Messrs. Powell, Mack, Davis,
Damour and Camp, were appointed to
take general charge of the matter, and do
all that waa necessary to be done in the
Major Cliestney suggested a bicycle race

ilecmcd proper to adopt tho suggestion.
It was withdrawn.
On motion, the meeting then ad
That the match will be successnlly ar
ranged seems already to lie an assured
fact That it will bo equally successful
is likewise evident Tbe committee ap
pointed to arrange matters will enter Into
their work promptly and heartily. They in
vite everybody to make a test ol tlielr speed
nnd endurance, and, beginning Wednesday
afternoon at tbe park, will begin the con
duction of a aeriea of practice matches in
srdcr that they may decide on six persons
to represent Macon In the big match on
the 7th. Hundreds, ot course, will enter,
and the Internal will be unbounded. The
final decision or selectlo n of the six to
•snter for Maoon will be made about three
days before tbe day of the cohtest. In or
der that nothing may be misapprehended,
tt may be well to state that the committee,
in their (election, will consider only those
who enter the practice matches. Those
srbo will enter will chose their trainers
immediately and begin to prepare for the
# great contest.
All AMATttm WALK.
The proposition to rtt sir ot Macon's
walkers with six of the participants In the
decent walking matches In Atlanta was
'received moat favorably by our boys yes
It was suggested daring the morning
that a few of tbe boys go down to Uie
park and take a spin around the mile
track for au hour to see what could be
done, and straightway thirteen of them
hail their names down on the lisL
quite a large crowd ol citizena went
down to see tbe sport, and at a law min
utes to four o'clock, all was announced
ready. Messrs. W. A. Davis, C. K. Da

consented to act as judges, with Mr. A.
W. Batts as timekeeper. The walker,
were to stand under tbe win at the

The Popular Judgment.
It has been Justly remarked tbe popular
. idgment, deliberately made up, is cor
rect and reliable. It stamps with its own
peculiar seal whatever it approves. The
.-c • its
reputation which survives its searching
and critical tests is established on a firm
feundation. The really meritorious art!-
cal finds favor at first, but slowly and with
many rebuff*: its inherent virtue contin
ually asserts itself; its elasticity rebounds
higher with every check, until it reaches
the height of favor to which it is entitled.
Burnett's Cocoaine for the hair and
Burnett's Standard Flavoring Extracts for
cooking purposes are articles in point.
They have been before the public many
years: one by one they acquired friend?

THE SCHOOL QUESTION.
Something More About .the Country
Schools and Teachers,
Pro bono publico should be the object
aimed at by everyone who touches upon a
public question. It is not to make warfare
upon Prof. Zettler, or anyone ehc, that I
am prompted to the indictment of this A-
tide, but simply to make whatieemsfo
me a practical suggestion. Repeated trials
have convinced some o fus in tbe country
that schools in certain localities will not
thrive well under the care of a female
teacher. I have in my mind’s eye now a
school of an average attendance of sixty
five scholars. In this school female teach
ers have several times been employed, and
the invariable rule has been that the school
has been short-lived and of but little prac
tical good. On the contrary, the school
has always done well under a good male
An accomplished male teacher—one who
has spent considerable time and money in
classical preparation—cannot afford, as
Prof. Zettler says, to teach
for what the public school fund
pays. Here comes in the di
lemma.-. Here is a fine school under a male
teacher that would almost be worthless
under almost any female teacher. What
is to be done? Prof. Zetler answers: "Let
tbe patrons pay the deficit.” Very well.
Let those who dance pay the fiddler. If
there is In this schoof of sixty-five or
seventy scholars a dozen Latin
or Greek scholars whose advance
ment makes it necessary for them to have
a classic teacher, then in common justice
let them pay for these extra accomplish'

THAT 818.000 PRIZE.
Drawn by Engineer Isaac Haines.
The lucky holder of one fifth of ticket
18.842, which drew the capital prize of
$75,000 in The Louisiana State Lottery
last Tuesday, is Mr. Isaac Haines, the en
gineer of passenger engine No. 51, on the
Memphiinind Charleston Railroad. The
gentlemen was interviewed at Chattanoo
ga last Wednesday, by an attache of the
Times, ami the journal on yesterday had
the following on the subject: “I'll tell you
how it happened,’ said Mr. Haines. ‘I
happened to find au old dollar bill in my
porkrtbook when in Memphis last week,
and while sauntering along the street, con
cluded to buy a lottery ticket. 1 put it
away and thought no moriof it until this
morning, when a gentleman showed me a
telegram from New Orleans, stating that
ticket No. 18,842 had drawn the ca^iUl

the popular verdict was largely rendered
in their favor.
