A PROGRESSIVE MAYOR.
The News-Herald is gratified at
the admirable start made by Law
renceville’s new Mayor-elect, Hon,
Oscar Brown, aided as he is by an
■ able set of councilmea.
Since their induction into office
the streets are taking on a differ
ent appearance, the sidewalks are
being cleared of chicken-coops
and rubbish, and the town begins
to look like it is coming to the
front as a progressive, wide-awake
If the progressive citizens of the
city will but encourage and up
hold our worthy mayor and the
city couucil in their admirable
and praiseworthy beginning, ere
the springtime Lawrenceville will
be a clean little city and thorough
ly inviting to strangers.
Of course the sanitary condition
of the town will be looked after,
and the back alleys, back yards
and out-houses will undergo a
thorough overhauling. This done,
Lawrenceville will be in po
sition to invite summer visitors,
and being blessed with pure air,
high altitude, good churches and
society as good as can be found
anywhere in Georgia, there is no
reason why she should uot make
headway and forge to the front as
one of the leading health and
pleasure resorts of the state.
A progressive mayor and a wide
awake city council are the leading
factors, and the advance guard, of
any city’s prosperity.
The press of Georgia is quite
right in condemning Mormonism.
The recent election to congress of
a man who has three living wives
and an advocate and practitioner
of polygamy, has somewha., open
ed the eyes of the people to this
peculiar and contemptible reli
gious belief and practice. The el
ders seem to be working mostly
among that class of our people who
are not as highly educated as some
others, and are making converts in
and around us.
Society is dependent upou the
sancity of the marriage relation as
laid down in the Bible, and when
it ceases to exist then will come
not only chaos but ruin. Mormon
'ism seeks to establish a new and
radically different society and one
which if permitted to run, will do
away with the purity of society in
Legislation seems not to prohib
it the nefarious doctrine, and it
becomes necessary for our people
to arouse themselves and prevent
the introduction of these doctrines
It cannot be too severely con
demned, and we insist upon our

cold shoulder and a prohibition to
the publication of their belief.
Those loving the purity of the
family and society should see that
Mormonism does not get a foot

Hon. E. R. Sharpe, editor of the

several times in the legislature,
since the war. He has been editor
of the Carrollton Free Press for
many years, and was prominent in

The best way to avoid sickness
is to keep yourself healthy by
taking Hood’s Sarsaparilla, the
great blood purifier.
It is stated by a New York cor
respondent that the slight revival
of the cotton market is being
helped “by the overflow of Wall
street speculation.” It could have
been hoped that the overflow had
taken place a little earlier, when
the cotton was in the hands of the
producers. It seems a little odd
that there should have been such
great activity in stocks and bonds
lately, with prices booming up
ward, and at the same time so
little interest in cotton.
HAS DONE MUCH GOOD.
“I had catarrh in the head and
could find no relief uutil I began

“In the entire history of piano ma
king in America few instruments have
compelled more critical praise from
the trade press and expert musical au
thorities than the new scale Everett
concert grand piano. It has been just
ly said that this instrument marks an
epoch In grand piano development. A
thoroughly impartial investigation of
its merits reveals a volutnn and quality
of tone, a most delicious touch and a
thoroughness of manufacture that
shows that no money has been spared
to make a perfect instrument architec
turally, as well as musically. For all
purposes of interpretation, the Everett
grand possesses the essential elements
demanded by the world’s few great
“It is safe to assert that when this in
strument is brought more prominently
into public notice, as it will be in due
time, it will create a virtual sensation.
In these days when commercialism
dominates the artistic as well as the
everyday world, it is gratifying to all
in sympathy with the artistic phases
of the piano business to note the con
sistent policy of the Everett Co. in con
stanly improving their instruments,
and completely remodeling their man
ufactories and placing them in charge
of experts for the purposes of artistic
piano production of the highest order.
“It is no easy task to make progress
even with such creditable and com
mendable objects in view, for it is la
boring for the future, so to speak, in
stead of today. But for a firm like the
Everett Co , who understand that suc
cess is simply doing one thing well,
the way is clear, the end sure. ‘Blow
by blow, through earth and rock, they
will toil till a final stroke shall break
through to the crumbling quartz and
lay bare the yellow ore of realization.’
Thus will success be won.”
The above criticism of the Ev
erett piano and the Everett Facto
ries is taken from the Musical
Trade Review published in New
York under date of December 17,
1898. Our New Everett piano in
upright, adapted for all classes of
work has not been surpassed by
the magnificent grand of which the
Editor writes. These instruments
are now offered by the very best
dealers in the south at prices which
in many cases are very little in ex
cess of the cheap commercial pi
anos of which the country is now
well supplied. Investigation costs
but little, comparisons are very
beneficial. Write us and we will
tell you where you can purchase
the Everett piano from your near

price at which the very highest
grade goods made can be sold.

a considerable extent throughout
the whole country. There is in
medical circles some speculation
as to what promotes or causes the
disease. In some localities it ap

spasmotic. There is doubtless no
particular local causes, but may
be traced to atmospheric. A damp,
chilly atmosphere is not healthy

leaving a warm room or after free
