. 111. SaSSIiK, FOR THIS SECTION.
With the opening of the new year, we desire to call the atten
tion of our farmer friends to the undiminished popularity and the
excellence of the various brands of fertilizers manufactured by our
company, as evidenced by the following comparative statement for the
past five years, to-wit:
In 1893-94 we sold 6,000 tons; in 1894-95 we sold 7,500 tons;
in 1895-96 we sold 9,400 tons; in 1896-97 we sold 12,000 tons; and
in 1897-98 we sold 14,100 tons.
This appears to be pretty good evidence that our fertilizers
have given satisfactiom to our patrons; and it is peculiarly grati
fying to know that this satisfaction has been most complete where
our fertilizers have been used in competition and alongside of other
brands. Our fertilizers are absolutely free from worthless adulter
ants. We furnish more plant-food for the money than any other fer
tilizer conoern whose goods are offered for sale in Georgia. We
deal with the farmers direct, through reputable agents. Our company
does not belong to the Guano Trust. We are free and independent,
and expect to hold, aloof from all entangling alliances. No combina
tion will be allowed to dictate to us the prices we may see fit to
charge the consumer. Our dealings are open and fair, and we stake
our reputation on the quality of the goods manufactured and offered
to the public.
■Do us the kindness to examine carefully the official analyses

samples drawn by State inspectors after the goods had been shipped
from the factory, and are officially certified. Read the official

Gentlemen: I can not recommend your Pitts’ Carminative too
strongly, as I owe my baby's life to it. She had Cholera lofantu®
when five months old, and 1 could get no relief until I began using Pitr s
Carminative. The fever left her when I had given her but two bottle*,
and she had fattened so she did not look like the same child. 1 advue all
mothers who have sickly or delicate children to give this remedy a trial.

Editor Nkws-Herald : As quite
a number of friends have asked
me to write a few lines from the
wiregrass region, I concluded to
ask space in your valuable columns
to comply with their wishes.
On short notice I was asked to
accept a position as principal of
the school at this place. With
hardly time to turu round, I was
on my way, and a ride of about
eight hours landed me at Hazlo
hurst, a distance of about 200
miles from Atlanta, thence a drive
of 26 miles westward lauded me at
the above place. Its useless to
say that the long-bodied pines, the
wire grass, scrub palmett.oes, cy
press swamps and slash ponds
were new to me, since all who are
acquainted with the writer are
aware that he never went from
home before. The longest slash we
found was not over one half of a
mile, not much less. The people
here are hospitable—like old
times—and cause one to turn back

names of Gwinnett’s pioneers, who
served 08 officers and jurors sos the
county in its earliest days.
The Record begins with the May
term of Inferior Court in the year
1820, and continues to the June
Tins. A. Dobbs was Clerk of the
first court. William Blake was
Sheriff in 1820 and James Lough
ridge was his deputy.
At the June term, 1820, the fol
lowing jurors were empaneled and

this term was as follows:

vs. / Court that a negro

by notice of the above stated attach-1
meet, the property of defendant, and
whereas it conies under the denomina

dered by the Court that the Sheriff
proceed to sell the same and deposit
the proceeds in the Clerk’s office sub
ject to the further order of the Court.
The luferior Court Deo. 10,1821,
was presided over by five Judges,
to-wit: Wrn. Green, Thos. Monk,

Order No. 86, of December term,

cotton grows from five to ten feet
high. It seems strange to see the
boys climbing the cotton stalks
to get the staple, but such is the
case. We have no hills like the
up country; no rocks, no red soil,
and creeks flow along low swampy
places through the piney woods
and cypress swamps.
Feeding along the road side may
be seen flocks of sheep, herds of
cattle, -and slim, piney woods

Another Letter From Cabs.
Bakacoa, Cuba, Jan. 21, 1899.
Editor Nkws-Herald: —Please
allow me space in your paper to
give my Gwinnett county frieuds
a short description of Cuba, its in
habitants and soldier life here.
Cuba is a small island 700 miles
long aud 90 miles wide. Its chief
products are tobacco, bananas, or
anges, lemons and cocoanuts. Its
inhabitants are mostly negroes,
who live in caves in the mountains,
and in small huts built of palm
and cocoanut trees. They hunt
and fish mostly for a livelihood.
Soldier life in Cuba is bad. Since
our arrival at Santiago on August
18th, last, I have not seen a bit of
civilization. The inhabitants live
mostly on dry bread aud wild
On our arrival at Santiago we
pitched camp on the field where
the great battle of Santiago was
fought. We failed to arrive in
time for the fight- The Spaniards
were taking transports for Spain,
aud such a horrible looking set of
men I never saw before. They
were marching at the rate of one
half mile per hour, and some had
Scarcely any clothing on at all.
They were all pale and sickly look
ing, and were glad the war was
over for they had been in this
country three years and seven
months in active fighting.
111 looking over the San Juan
hill I found a number of relics,
among them being a machette, be
longing to an officer of the Span
ish army, a mauser rifle and a lot
of others too numerous to mention.
It was a sad sight to look over the
field aud see so many young boys
who were just in the prime of life
that were slain.

Canada a carload of turnips and
will send about S3OO of cottoD
money to the dominion to pay for
them. We would rather buy the
turnips in Georgia, but cannot get
“This is no unusual transaction.
Wo are spending our money ex
tensively for turnips, potatoes,
beans, cabbage and other similar
products, which would grow in the
greatest abundance in overy inch
of soil in our state. I believe the
merchants of Atlanta buy four or
five carloads of cabbage every
week from the state of New York,
five or six carloads of potatoes
every week from Now York, Ohio,
and western states, besides several
carloads of beans.
We send to California for dried
peaches, notwithstanding the fact
that Georgia produces the best
peaches in the world.

tilings will grow in Georgia we of

And I’m full of army prunes

I am but a battered wreck,
Don’t you see ?

While the very heavens wept
And the buzzards vigils kept
When I ’listed I was fat,
Never was a Thomas cat

I could lift a barrel of tieer,

And there never was a tear
Ln my eye.

You could make a hitching post
out of me.
Every joint that in my frame
Is with fever stiffness lame.
O! Gehenna was no name
For the spree.
Now I’m with you once again
Though you seem not to iden-
Now that I’m on my feet
And will have a chance to eat
I'll accumulate mure meat
Than you see.

And will soon be as spry
