The citizens of Idnbo and Wyo

favor the proposition, and it is not
unlikely that these will be made

next presidential election.
Senator Call introduced a res

days, in favor of the acquisition

This caused considerable excite

A strong effect will be made,
by those financially interested, to
induce congress to restore the tar
iff on quinine, and to keep the
heavy duty on castor oil. The
republican idea is to keep a heavy
import duty on everything of
prime necessity to the people
generally, and in every way
practicable to assist the monopo
list manufacturers to increase their
riches. Thus they say better
wages will be paid. This pollciy
will not stand argument, and the

Subbscribe for the Hohe Jourxa.
With this issue of the Hohe
Journal we begin a new year and
a new volume.
For nineteen years the Home
Journal has served its patrons
and its section faithfally, to the
best of ability of the man controll
ing it. For ten years, less three
months, the present editor has
managed the paper.
It is not our purpose to review
the past, or forecast the future. In
the past we have done our best to
give full value for every cent, and
every favor, received, and in the
future we propose to do the best
we can on the same line.
Whatever mistakes we have
made -were not intentional, of
course, and our best endeavors will
be devoted to the avoidance.of a
repetition of any such,while trying
earnestly to serve honestly and
well all oar patrbns, and their in
Our paper will be made, as near
as onr best efforts can, a complete
home journal for Houston county.
The paper to-day contains eight
columns to the page, aggregating
four more columns than it has
ever embraced since we assumed
control of it. We propose that"
these columns shall uphold the
right, and contain nothing impure,
or immoraL W£ propose that at
no time shall the Home Journal
contain aught to raise a blush to
the cheek of the most modest of
In Houston, w T e shall work as
siduously for Houston’s good, giv
ing justice to all and special favors
The changes we have just made,
with the purpose of better serving
our patrons, have been effected
only by the expenditure of nearly
eight hundred dollars, and much
trouble and unrequited labor.
This added expense will not cost
any of our readers one far
thing extra. On the contrary, ev
ery subscriber who pays in ad
vance will receive the paper 25
per cent cheaper than heretofore.
Every such subscriber will pay
only S1.50 a year. However, those
who fail to pay in advance, will
pay $2.00, as heretofore.
We ask the patronage of every
citizen of Houston county, but we
ask it in a strictly business way-
We want money, but we want only
so much as we earn. No pro
gressive citizen can afford not to
read, and next to his Bible the
columns of his home paper con
tain that which is of most im
portance to him. The Home
Journal will be made such a pa

Friends in the several districts
of the county will report to us the
current news of their respective
sections, and thus our ability to
satisfactorily serve all our readers
will be materially enhanced.
To-day the Home Journal has
a larger circulation than at any
time since 1880, and fewer of thesej
in proportion, are in arrears. But
our subscription list is not as large
as it should be, and we propose to
increase it by meriting the patron
age of every one who is interested
in Houston county and its people.
So far as our efforts can be of
force, we propose to make the
Home Journal indispensable to
every progressive citizen of Hous
We do not ask anyone to choose
between the Home Journal and
any other paper, but simply say,
subscribe for the Home Joubnnl,
and you’ll not regret it.
The year 1890 will be full to the
brim of politics, county, state, and
congressional, and our readers will
be kept posted.
Nearly all our subscribers have
paid up for 1889, and not a.few
have paid for 1890. To these we
extend our sincere thanks. Some
still owe us for last year, and
few for the year before.
For these we will gladly*fill out
receipts* and give them sincere
thanks for the money we have
honestly earned. Come upprompt-
ly and pay ns, that we may pay
the oblfgations we have incurred
in order that our service to yon
might-be more satisfactory.

While the year is yet new, and
as it grows old, and older,. lets

should do unto us.”
The Boys Around Pine Level.
It has been my desire to say
something to the public in regard
to the young men who live around
Pine Level school house. While
PARIS, and other cities in Europe
are being scourged by the Russian
influenza—specially called La
Grippe—and the dread disease has
been imported to the. United
States. It is exceedingly malig
nant, its first symptoms being sim-
lar to pneumonia, and also of a ca
speaking of and to these boys, I
am confident that I will hurt no
one’s feelings, for I am personally
acquainted with them, and know
them all well.
In this immediate neighbor
hood there are about a dozen hoys
between the ages of fourteen and
twenty-one. These young men all
follow agricultural pursuits; those
who do not farm for themselves,
work on the farm. They all have
sound heads; good judgment, quick
eyes, sturdy brains and strong
nerves. They are good workers,
and they please their masters.
The majority of the boys I speak
of are free from paternal control,
hence they are in the world to
work for themselves, and they do
not seem to dread it They are
all polite, kind, and generous-
hearted'; they give older ones their
respect and each one attends to
his own business. The older ones
seem proud of them, and well they
may be, for the rising generation
of young men around here will be
sufficiently strong (mentally speak
ing,) to fill their fore-father’s
Now, boys, a word to you. Ton
may not know who I am, but
have been watching you with a
keen eye. You are enough to
make any community feel proud
of. You are on the right road to
make yourselves popnlar. I
gret to say there is one deficiency
about you, and that is, you are too
bashful; you haven’t got enough
adhesion. For instance, take your
debating club. Now there is noth
ing more becoming and instructive
to young men than clubs of this
kind.-You organized the club with
a goodly number of members, but
you have kept dropping off, until
you have scarcely enough for a
quorum. Now, that is not the
way to do; if you want to make a
success of anything, keep at it
speak from experience.
Again, there are enough of you
to have some kind of entertain
ment every mouth, if you would
only try; but as it now is, you
scarcely have one a year. It isn’t
because you haven’t got brains
enough, or anything like that, but
you will not come together. In
connection with your club, you
might add a speaking or reading
society, and thereby have an enter
tainment twice a week. Some of
you have been to a singing-school
recently, and-you might pass away
some pleasant time by meeting to
gether some nights or Sunday af
ternoons for the purpose of sing
ing. You would at the same time
please the old folks.
Now, boys, try my suggestions
for a while, and see if they will
not work well.
Wishing you all, girls included,
a happy new year, I remain,
Gee Tb Aytch.

“She Do Like She Do.’

Auction Sale of Horses,
Two car loads of Western Horses
will be sold to the highest bidder,
Unadilla Saturday, Jan. 1L
commencing promptly at 10 a. m.
The horses are from three to six
years old and weigh from 700 to
900 pounds each, and are bred
from Kentucky stock, comprising
saddle horses, work horses, choice
mares, matched pairs and good
business horses suitable for all
kinds of work, also a number of
fine young horses and mares that
are unbroken. The terms of sale
will be cash and every horse sold
under a guarantee. This will be
a good chance to buy a horse at.
your own price, as the horses will
be sold without reserve. -There
will be no postponement on ac
count of Tain, as Mr. McCafferty,
the owner, has other business that
ioires his immediate attention,
1 the horses must be sold.
The excessive use of mean whis
key by mean men caused a lot of
trouble in Georgia and other
Southern states on Christmas day
Beginning with the guzzling of
liquor, municipal laws were vio
lated, and attempted arrests led to
riots, bloodshed and death.
Christmas has come and is gone,
and I think it has been the dullest
I ever saw in the village. _On
Christmas eve there was a Christ
mas tree at the academy. Mr Geo.
F. Clark enacted the part of Santa
Claus,, and did itto. perfection. A.
great variety of presents were dis
posed, and everybody was-pleased.
The large crowcl-were invited up
stairs to the festival prepared by
the ladies of the Methodist church.
There inner man could be satisfied
with the good things that are pro
verbial for our ladies to prepare.
It was a magnificent success. A
net profit of something over thirty
dollars was realized and the ladies
feel grateful for the patronage.
There was some old-fashioned
turkey shooting during the week,
first among the whites and then
the colored people. Mr. Joe H.
Wimberly was the champion shot,
winning some 3 or 4 turkeys.
There has been no drunkenness
here during the week, everybody,

Our school prospects are some
what gloomy as yet, we Jiad sbme
hopes that Mr. W. F: KUlwFWettld
take the school and operate
ing the ensuing year, but' have
heard some conflicting, reports and
know nothing definite about the
matter. A splendid school can be
built up here by the right man. I
don’t think there would be any
trouble about getting 40 pupils
the first term, and a good man
could of course keep all he got,
and increase the nnmber. Our
people are very anxious, for some
good man to take the scoool.
The weather has been except
ionally good thiB Christmas,
though it is raining here now 2, p.
m., and the- prospects are for a
continuation for some days, after
which we hope for some cold
weather, so that the farmers
throughout the county can butcher
their hogs. I hear considerable
complaint about the hogs making
inroads on the corn intended for
use during 1890.
Wishing you and all your sub
scribers a happy and successful
new year, I am yours truly,
Dec. 30th 1889.
There was a bloody riot at Jes
sup on Christmas day. A negro
desperado, Bob Brewer, was drunk
and exceeding boistrous and dis
orderly. He resisted arrest, and
killed the deputy marshal. Tlien
a fight ensued, and another white
citizen was wounded. Brewer and
his negro friends fled to the swamp
near by, and there another fight
occurred, and another white citi
zen was killed, and others, white
and colored, were wounded. The
town was in a terrible state of ex
sponded to , r frbm‘ neighboring-
towns, and military companies
from Brunswick" and Savannah
went to Jessup. Several arrests
were made, and within 48 hours
several negroes had been killed.
Finally quiet was restored, though
Brewer is yet at large, and the
people of Jesup are vigilant.

December 31st, 1889. )
Editor Home Journal: About
one year ago the writer suggested
the propriety of a Teachers’ Asso
ciation being formed by the teach
ers of Houston county. Those
teachers consulted at that time ex
pressed, their Approbation of the
measure, agreeing that such an or
ganization would infuse new life
into tiie profession, dignify and
elevate it in public estimation.
Besides this, more money is being
granted by onr legislature, and
from time to lime will be granted,
and this fmoney should control,
and will control, a better class of
teachers. Progress is all around
us, and our isolated condition as
teachers, will cause"us to be left,
and other and more progressive
teachers will be called in to take
our places. Then, how are we to
get out of the old ruts apd grooves
and avoid the term of “old fos
sils?” It is frequently asserted
that there is not a first-class school
rn Houston county. Why'is this
so? Houston is looked upon as
one of the banner counties of this
state, and yet her boys and girls
are sent off to other counties to be
educated, and her own people do
not point with pride to her schools,
public or private.
Then let us have the Teachers’
Association, and concoct -measures
looking to our better instruction
in the art of teaching. This asso
ciation once formed, it would then
be in order to establish a chatau-
qua. This body could hold its
meetings, of two or three days’ du
ration, now at Perry, then at Fort
Valley. This would give all the
members an opportunity of re
ceiving its benefits, at a very small
expense, and with little loss of
time and inconvenience. The
best and most progressive educa
tors would be invited to be pres
ent on these occasions, to give us
instruction in the new methods of
teaching, pedagogics, etc. This
association would receive the sup
port and earnest co-operation of
the county board of education, un
der whose auspices it is proposed
to establish it. Will Major Ezell
and others speak out?
