First-clasc work. Prices moderate Pat ronage solicited. ap!281y Indiana now lays claim to the heaviest man in the world, in the. person of John Hanson Craig, of Danville, Hendricks county.' Mr. Craig was born in Iowa City, Iowa, in 1855. When quite young his parents moved to Ken tucky, where they lived until John was about thirteen years old. 'At birth he weighed eleven pounds. When eleven months old his weight was seventy-seven pounds. From this time on his gain in flesh was phenomenal. At the age of two years his weight was 206 pounds. During 1858 his parents took him to New York city and entered him as a contestant in the baby'show inaugurated by P. T. Barnum, and he was awarded a cash prize of Sl,- 000 as the largest and heaviest child on exhibition. At the age of five years his weight hadincreased to 302 pounds. During the next six years his weight innreased to 405 pounds. The following eight years his weight increased 196 pounds, caus ing him to tip the beam at 601 pounds. At the age of 25 his weight was 725 pounds; at 27 it had increased to 758 pounds. During the next year he gained 34 pounds, making his weight at the age of 28, 792 pounds. . From that time on his weight has been gradually increasing until now he tips the icales at 907 pounds. Mi’. Craig has never been ill a day in his life, is a very delicate eater, is not addicted to the use oE intoxicants, and does not use to bacco in any form. Mr. Craig stands six feet five inches in his stocking feet, and measures eight feet and four inch es around the hips. It requires forty-one yards of cloth to make him a full suit, coat, vest and pants, and it takes three pounds of yarn to make him a- pair of socks. He laughingly .says the cows always smile when they see him going to a shoe shop to leave bis measure for a pair of boots, as it will take a whole side to make him a pair. He wears No. 12„boots. The father of Mr. Craig was a very small man, weighing from 115 to 120 pounds,his mother was a very small womaD, not weighing over 110 or 116 pounds. His great- great-grandfather, on his mother’s side, was the first governor of Ver mont, Governor Crittendon, and was born in Ireland. His grandfa ther^ Dr. Hanson Catlett, was as sistant surgeon-general of the United States for 35 years, and died in the service of the govern ment at East Liberty, Pa. He was a native of England. On his father’s side Mr. Craig’s grandfather was a native of Scot land. His grandmother was a German, having been born in Franklin. Mr - Craig is a first cou sin to William P. Hepburn, at the present time solicitor for the United States treasury. His wife is a beautifnl woman, about thirty years old, small of statue, and will weigh, perhaps, 130 pounds. Her luxuriant bail- falls in graceful curls, reaching be low her waist. Mr. Craig fell in love with her at their first meet ing, and, as she has never tried to wear the trousers, he still adores her. Mr. Craig is a splendid conver sationalist, and is well posted on the current topics of the day; is a member of the Adherent Lodge, No, 43; Knights of Pythias; Silcox Lodge, No. 123; Independent Or der of Odd Fellows, and Toscaro- ra tribe, No, 49, Independent Or der of Red Men.

From time to time we have call ed the attention of the people-of Georgia to the fact that the con sumers and the producers pay the freight rates. We have also re minded them that our State Rail road Commission has no power to fix a freight rate for what crosses in transportation the state line. If, however, the State Railroad Commission were required to study all through freight rates, and to criticise them when unjust, and to go, when necessary, with the At torney-Genera! of Georgia before the National Ralroad Commission for the purpose of fighting, in be half of the state, freight rates, much good could bS occomplished, The next legislature shonld take this subject up, and increase the powers and duties.of the State Rail road Commission, by putting upon them the task of studying through freight rates into and out of Geor gia, and of fighting those that seem excessive. This additional re sponsibility would involve much additional labor. . As the commis- mission is now organized it is com posed of a railroad man, a lawyer and a business msn. *. It would be a wise amendment to our present law to increase the umber of railroad commissioners in Georgia to five, and to put npon them the duty just described of working upon through freight rates. As the mass of the people of the state, out of whom finally the freight comes, belong to the agricultural classes, the amend ment of the law which adds two additional railroad commissioners, should require that one or both of these commissioners shonld be a farmer, actively and exclusively engaged in farming. With the powers of our State Railroad Commission perfected, with our Attorney-Genera! charged with tho duty of representing the people of Georgia as a state before the National Railroad Commission,- then we should look at once to the national cODgress for legislation which would give permission for appearance, by a State Railroad Commission, before the National Commission, to protect the entire state against unjust • freight rates. This would be a tremendous stride toward perfecting control of the great corporations and combina tions now owning the railroads of the country. But the time must come when, upon, the National Railroad Commission, there will be a member from each . state in the union, so vast are the interests of the people in the question of transportation. - It is understood that Governor Gordon and Governor Northern are each favorable to the suggested legislation, and we would not be surprised to see something in one of- the messages on the subject.

That bitterness will be increased by all the surroundings of that home; by every chair, by every picture, by the old time mantel or naments, by everything yon can think of as connected with that home. All those things will rouse up agonizing memories. Youn: women, have you anything to do in the way of making yonr father’s house happy? Now is the time to attend to it, or leave it forever un done.

But no. Most people have consented that men may be as im pure as they choose and suffer not a whit in socinl circles. And it is wrong. Young ladies who would have themselves thought to be so pure mi tided its never to know unholy thought, will knowingly al low young men of gross social vices, not only share their social favors,but almost monopolize them. No need to say they don’t know, they do kuow, or they can know full well if they care enough to as certain. No, a thousand times no. Do not lower the standard for women. Raise it for men. Let as chaste purity be required of him as of her. No need to say it cannot be. It can be when the women want it so. Let a man be disgraced who is guilty of unchastity. He is not fit for decent society, whitewash him, or dose him as vou may.' But just there is the rub. _ The people of more heroic morality have con sented that others shall take the control in what they choose to call society.

We coufess we look with dismay upon .the tendency of social re quirements. We have a thousand times been forced to recall a line we read from Mrs. Southworth when a boy. She said: “Women like men with a speck of the devil in them anyhow.” And we have been forced by degrees to the con clusion that she kuew whereof she affirmed. to Do Pou Know How it Feels? If a mat smokes his cigar only to keep it lighted, and relishes tak ing out of his month to watch the curl of the smoke in the air, set him down as an easy-going man. Beware of the man who never re leases his grip on the cigar, and: is indifferent whether it burns or not; he is cool, calculating and exacting, the man that smokes a bit-, rests a bit, and fumbles the cigar more or less, is easily affected by circum stances. If tbs cigar goes out fre quently, the smoker has a whole- souled disposition, is a “hail"fellbw well met,’-’ with a lively brain, glib tongue, and generally fond of cap ital anecdotes. A nervous man who fumbles his cigar a great deal is a sort of popinjay among men. Hold ing the cigar constantly between his teeth, chewing - it occa'sionally, and not caring if it be lighted at all, are the characteristics of men who have the tenacity of brili dogs. The fop stands his cigar on end, and an experienced smoker points it straight ahead, or almost at right angles .with his course. Many a mind fairly sparkle with' gems of thought that- never see the light, all because the possessor is wanting in self-confidence.

Every one has heard the word. “How’s yonr mother?” “Oh, she’s well except her rheumatism.” How carelessly the answer is given. Do yon know how it feels to. have rheumatism? Oh? it’s terrible, the swelling and the excruciating pain of ankle, knee, elbow and shoulder, just as if each point was a bundle of irri tated nerves, each one seemingly bent on giving more pain than the other. Laying awake all night longing for daylight, aching too se verely to sleep, applying liniment every half hour to temporarily re lieve the agony. Praying, enrsing, turning, twisting, but no ease, no comfort. What "is it that causes rheumatism? Ab, there are a thousand causes. What is it that cures rhenmatism? Thans God, there is at least one care. It is called B. B. B., or Botanic Blood Balm. It has cured more cases of rheumatism than any other known remedy. Try it. Do not suffer longer. J. H. Laing, Dawson,Ga..writes: “I suffered with rheumatism in my shoulders, and general debility. Five bottles B. B. B. improved my health, and the rhenmatism left Excli&ngc. The loco weed of the western plains is to vegetation what the rattlesnake is to animal life. This name comes from the Spanish and signifies insanity. It is a dusky green and grows in small bunches or haudfnlls and scatters itself in a sparse and meager way about the country. It is insert a vege table nomad and travels about Dot a little. Localities where it this season flourishes in abundance may not see any of it next year, indeed for a number of years come. The prime property of the loco is to induce insanity in men or animals who partake of it. An mals—mules, horses, sheep and cattle—avoid it naturally and nn der ordinary circumstances never touch it. But iu the winter, when an inch or two of snow have cover ed the grass, these green bnnehes of loco standing clear and above the snow are tempting baits to an imals who are going about half starved at the best. Even then it is not common for them to eat it. Still, some do and it at once ere ates an appetite in the victim sim ilar in its intense force to the alco hol habit in mankind. Once start- the doward path of loco a mule will abandon all other forms of food and look for it. In a short time its effects become perfectly apparent. Yon will see a locold mule standiug out on the shadow less plains with not a living mov ing thing in his vicinity. His head is drooping and his eyes half closed. On the instant he will kick and thrush oat biS heels the most warlike way. Under the influence of loco he sees himself surrounded by multitudes of threatening ghosts and is repell ing them. The mind of the ani mal is eompletelj gone. He can not be driven or. worked because of his utter lack of reason. He will go right or left or turn aronnd in spite of bits or whip, or will fail to start or stop, and all in a vacant idiotic way devoid of malice. The victim becomes as thin, physically as menially, and after retrograding four or five months at last dies, the most complete wreck on rec ord. Many gruesome tales are furnished of cruel Spanish and Mexican ladies who, in a jealous fit, have locoed their American ad mirers through the medium of loco tea. Two or three cases in kind are reported in the Texas lu natic asylum. A Pair of Honest Men. Somebody has been trying his hand on the word “habit,” *and he works it out thus: “Habit is hard to overcome. If yon take off the first letter it does not change ‘a bit,’ if you take off another letter yon still have a ‘bit’ left. If yon tak* off still another the whole of ‘it’ remains. Yon take off anoth er, it is uot ‘t’ totally used np. All of which goes to show that if you wish to get rid of a habit yon must throw it off altogether, and all at once, it cannot be done apart at a time.” Arkansas Traveler. Old Abraham Dillinger. sued Bill Hilliard for calling him a liar. He thought that his character had been damaged to the extent of $15, end for that amount brought suit before a justice of the peace. Just before court met Hilliard ap proached Dillinger and said: ’ “Look here, Abe, you know yonr character ain’t been hurt $15 wnth.” ''“Yaas, blamed ef it hain’t” “Now, Abe, I b’lieve that $5 will kiver np all damages, fur, Abe, you know well enough that you air a liar.” Yes, I know all that Bill, but it’s one o’ them sorter truths that I despise.” “I don’t want no lawyer er pick in’ at me, Abe. Tell you what I’ll do. I’ll give you $5.” “Tain’t enough, Bill.” “Wall now, I want to do whnt’s right. We are both honest men an’ good citizens. I'll give you the $15 if you’ll go before court, say that you was a liar an’ withdraw the suit” Give me $20, Billie, an’ blamed ef I don't do it” “I’m your man.” The money was paid, and after the court had been called to order, Abraham stated that as he “mout” have told a lie, he would withdraw the suit. “Well,” said he, after making the acknowledgement, “b’lieve I’ll be goin’, as it’s gettin’ ’long toward the shank o’ the even in’. Goin’ out my way, Bill?” ‘Not right now, Abe. Say, hold on a minute. Jedge, I want this man tuck up for false arrest. He has acknowledged that he is a liar.” “Let me see yoa a minute, Bill,” called Abe. Bill went out and Abe said: “Look here, what’s the matter with you?” “Nothin’, only I’m goin’ to have the clamps put on von.” I’ll give you S10 to wipe the thing out.” Now, Abe, I want to be far’ an’ squar’. Gimme §30 an’ out she goes. I ken send yon to the pen for this, Abe, an’ consider $30 mighty cheap.” “I’ll give you $25.” ‘Thirty, Abe.” Yon must be a fool.” ‘AH right, Abe.” ‘Say!” Well!” ‘Here’s your money.

It is well known that-sheep will fol low a leader, and if the petted lamb has been tangbt to come at a call or peculiar sound the whole flock will be governed by following the particular one that has been trained. J. P. Davis, Atlanta, Ga., (West End) writes: “I consider that B. B. B. has permanently cured roe of rhenmatism and sciatica.” Jacob F.Spsucier,.Newman, Ga., writes: “B. B.
