Against Democratic Apathy.
Statesboro Hospitality Will Be
The Democratic Convention of the First
Congressional District, which will place
lion. Rufus K. Lester in nomination for
Congress fer the seventh time, will meet
a( Statesboro Wednesday. The Savannah
delegation, headed by Col. J. H. Estill,
will take the Georgia and train
Wednesday morning. This train will put
them in Statesboro at 10:45 o’clock. They
will have practically the entire day before
them as the returning train does not
leave until 6:15 in the afternoon. The
schedule is a very convenient one, as it
enables the deb gat s to go and return in
the same day with practically no night
At Statesboro the delegates from Chat
ham and other counties of the district will
be received by the and escorted
to the Court House where the convention
will be held. As there is no opposition to
Col. Lts er the nomination will be a mat
ter of form, but it will nevertheless be
gone through with in the approved style.
A chairman and secretary will be named,
ar.d the nomination will be made by some
friend of Cel. Lester, and seconded by
others, and it will not be difficult for the
speakers to find someth.ng pleasant to
say about the candidate.
After the nomination has been made and
ratified anew District Committee will be
selected. It has been customary' to name
tw'o members of the committee from eaeli
county in the district, and this custom
will doubtle c t-< be adhered to. As the Re
publicans appear to be in a very confident
humor, as i result of their recent Nation
al Convention, and may be inclined to
adopt aggressive measures in this sec
tion. the convention will doubtless take
, under consideration the possibility' of op
position from that source, and map out a
plan of campaign. It will be remembered
that the Democratic party in the district
was caught napping four years ago, and
that the candidate’s majority was much
smaller than he had reason to expect,
simply' because of over confidence and
the slight attention paid to the move,
mems of their opponents. Had the Re
publican majority In the House not been
a small one. and had not Col. Lester 6ueh
a large number of personal friends in the
House, without regard to party, he might
have been called upon to face a very
unpleasant contest. It is desirable to
avoid such h contingency in the future.
This will furnish some food for discus
sion aside from the routine work of the
convention. Col. Lester, himself, will be
present, and will, of course, be called to
discuss the present political situation, and
incidentally, will doubtless give some ad
vice as to the management of his cam
Statesboro is one of the growing and
prosperous towns of South Georgia and
the stay of the delegates there will not be

ORDERED OI T OF TOWN.
Reporder Hnrtridno’s Sentence Upon
In the Recorder's Court yesterday,
George Tolbert, the veteran of Ray's Im
munes, who was arrested the night be
fore on a charge of being drunk and dis
orderly, was released with the proviso
that he leave town for six months. Tol
bert has been a frequent offender lately,
and the Recorder ha3 concluded that a
prolonged rustication, even if it does not
cure his chronic thirst, will at least save
the police some trouble.
The four negro children who were
caught swimming in Musgrove creek were
also given a hearing. The two elder ones
were given sentences of $2 or three days
each, and the others, on account of their
extreme youth, were allowed to go, after
being warned to sin no more.

THROWN ON THE ASPHALT.
Slippery Tnvement Canned John M.
Marlow to Kali From Wheel.
John M. Marlow suffered a painful, and
what was at first thought to be a very
serious bicycle accident last night. He
was riding up Bull street on his wheel
and, in skirting Madison Bquare to the
west, the wheel slipped on the wet asphalt
and its rider was thrown violently against
The pavement was very slippery at any
rate and the attention of the rider was
diverted for the moment from his wh“el
in raising his hat to on acquaintance. The
inattention thus caused was unfortunate,
for in less time than it takc to tell It the
wheel had slipped from l>eneath its rider
and he was precipitated against the oak
that stands in front of Col. F. W. M< i
drim’s residence arni rendered unconscious
by the shock of the blow he received.
It happened, fortunately, that Dr. J. S.
Howkins was in hailing distance when
the accident occurred, and driving up to
the place where the wounded man was
lying, he gave him his attention. Un
der Dr. Howkins’ instructions, Marlow
was removed to the veranda of Col. Mcl
drim’s residence, where his wounds re
ceived such immediate attention ns their
nature necessitated. Afterward he was
carried to his home in a cab.
The unconsciousness that followed the
fall and continued for some length of
time was perhaps the most serious result
of the accident. Dr. Howkins said that
Marlow had received no serious injuries
and that his confinement would be but
temporary. Those who witnessed the ac
cident and observed the force with which
Marlow’s head struck the tree, found it
easy to credit the tale that was for a
time in circulation, that his injuries were
very serious and possibly fatal.
Another accident occurred in the after
noon shortly after 1 o’clock at Bull
street and Broughton lane. A larly rid
ing south on Bull street was run into
and knocked off her wheel by a ca*reless
youngster, who was riding on the wrong
side of the street and not looking where
he was going. The lady received a slight
blow’ In the forehead and a bad fright,
while the boy. who got decidedly the
worst of the fall, received several bruises
from his contact with the asphalt, but
none of them were serious enough to pre
vent him from riding away after he had
been straightened out a bit and brushed
MARKET STALLS WELL STOCKED.
Marketers find Plenty to Bay and
of Good Quality.
Savannah’s market is stocked with the
usual supply of summer vegetables and
fruits, and housewives are corresponding
ly happy, for neither variety nor quality
are wanting to keep the tables well sup
A peculiarity of the market Is that as
the vegetables become more plentiful and
consequently cheaper, the price of meat
advances eo that the buyers have a dou
ble incentive for the purchase of garden
The greater part of the beef that is sold
here is from the West and now brings
from 12H to 20 cents pound, the latter
price being charged for fancy cuts. Mut
ton, of which the consumption is. next to
beef, the greatest, brings about the same
price. Chickens are rather scarce, but
those offered are of an exceptionally fine
quality and bring very good prices, broil
ers selling from 15 to 35 cents apiece, and
spring chickens from 36 to 85 cents a pair.
Fruits and vegetables are plentiful, and
of an excellent quality; plums of the com
mon sort are selling as low as 5 cents a
quart, and even those of the choicest
kinds of them, brought from California,
are being disposed of at 10 cents a quart.
Peaches are go-lng at 10 cents a quart, or
three quarts for 25c. Watermelons are
still too high to be common in the mar
ket, but the hucksters expect to have
some in during next week. In the vege
table line, okra and bell peppers sell at
10 cents a quart, butter beans at 15c. green
com 16 and 20 cents a dozen, cantaloupe*,
three, four and six, according to size, for

Fish are rather scarce, owing to the
recent bad weather, but those that ore
offered, are of very good quality, mid con

many fresh water fish, particularly bream.
Despite the scarcity, price* are quite low,
bass and red snapper selling at 12V£ cents

questions of law that the case involves.
petition of the plaintiff was tiled
in court some days since, and the hear ng
was upon ihe application for an injunc

January she went to Van Giesen for th<
purp se of borrowing $!0, with which to
pay the funeral expanses of her husband,
who had just departed this life. She
claims to have offered as security a lot
of land in one cf the suburbs of the city,
to which ihe cLoth of her husband gave
her title as his sole heir.
As she tells the story a paper was read
to her by I/awyer Hitch, the defendant's
attorney, which she understood, being ig
norant of legal terms and phraseology, to
be a mortgage upon the property for the
repayment of the loan. This understand
ing agrees with that she claims to have
had with Van Giesen. She signed the pa

money. When she went to Van Gle>en
some weeks ego she was for the first time
as she avers, acquainted with the fact
that she had executed a deed conveying

she had only obtained S4O and as the prop

naturally wanted to recover it, and the
suit was instituted to prevent its alienation

A CHILD’? HEALTHY SOUL.
CONCLUSIONS REACHED HY \N EMI
NENT FRENCH SPECIALIST.
When Children Are High Tempered,
Cowardly, IHelu nehol y mill Un
truthful it Shown a Diseased Con
dition of the Urn in and Can He
llent Treated by Expanding the
llrain Cell* With lUood and Tliu*
New York, June 22.—Dr. Maurice de
Floury, a famous French physician, nerve
specialist and author of “The Medicine
of the Mind,” etc., who has done much
toward improving the care for the child’s
body, is no less solicitous and wise for
its soul. He does not attempt to teach
anatomy, but by a few simple diagrams
shows how the brain, the instrument of
the soul, works. Figure 1 show’s the ge
ography of h half of the brain, the local
izations of the various activities and the
spots which control the required nerves.
If V, for instance, is destroyed by acci
dent or disease, you become blind, be
cause the optic nerve runs here. Look at
Figure 3. These oells do the work of the
brain, receiving impressions and sending
out the messages to the muscles which
result in acts. Ordinarily the action and
reaction are automatic. Strike a c’hild
and he strikes again. Let him see a fruit
and instinctively he puts his hand out to
grasp it. Another important function of
the cells is that they retain a trace of
these sensations, and this is memory. We
have not one memory, as many think,
but 10,C00,000 memories stored up in the
brain cells. In addition to these two facul
ties of changing sensation into movement
and preserving images there is till an
other. that of mutual contact. When the
cells are full of blood and active they ex
pand and touch neighboring cells, thus
bringing about interaction. When fa;igued
or shriveled they draw up nnd live only
apart. It is this extending of the fibers
of one dell to another which plays an im
portant part in the proper action of the
individual. If the child is well trained,
if the images of right and duty have been
implanted by its teachers and parents,
and if its brain is In a healthy condition,
the impulse to seize a green apple will
be restrained by the fibers running from
the judgment cells, and it will exercise
the valuable quality of self-restraint,
These points are *necessary to an under
standing of the method by which the child
can be cured of his mental diseases, for
they are diseases. The gray matter of
the brain is the medium through which
the cells and fibers are made active. By
its healthy condition the activity of .sen
sation, action, memory and comparison of
sensation is made possible. At the ages
of 3 or 4 years these comparisons, gener
alizations, ideas begin to Iformed. It is
easy to see that imelligence depends on
the number and healthy condition of these
fibers and ceils, and the brain must be w’ell
nourished at all costs. Now its faculties
of attention, will and judgment begin to
play their part in the child’s life. The
personality of the child is the total of all
the tendencies, good or bad, rough or
gentle, W'hich he has inherited, and of all
the images which he has received since
birth, every second of his life. The child
is then worth whatever he gets from
mother ond father as developed or con
trolled by education. The value of train
ing is now clear.
\\ hut to Do With Iligjh-Teinperetl
It is necessary for the child to learn that
it can not do wr ng with impunity. That
it hurts itself by every display of passion,
and accomplishes nothing. The severe
measures taken w'ith*such children gen
erally wisdom, coolness and calm
ne.-s. and do no goed. The fact is that
his nng*r is nothing more than the over
excitement of a nervous system by con
tagion. They gath- r this contagion at a
very tarly ag*\ reflecting surrounding
conditions most faithfully. Terrorizing
the child dees no goed: it has in some
cases brought on idiocy. We look too much
to our eomfir , not to their benefit. Our
harshness may give us peace, but what
does it accomplish for the child. In these
moments of anger it may be noted that
generally punishments and blows have lit
tle effect. It Is a nervous hypertension
which must run its course, once started.
Raising a nervous child nervously is the
worst of crimes. To calm an angry child
cries, menaces and blows are of little
value, they only excite it further. Take
the child before a mirror and show him
bow r ugly he looks. Or throw' a 1 i:♦ le cold
water ov r him, either with a cup or from
a s phon. If done calmly the shock of thu
A man who knows in his own heart that
he Is unfit for the society of women, be
cause of some* disease or weakness re
sulting from his own acts, is certainly one
of the most miserable of creatures. Even
if he brazens it out when he is with oth*rs
his sins come home to him In u double
strength when he 1* alone. Night or day
he cannot escape, either mentally or
physically, the terrible effects of the mal
ady which has him In its grasp.
First comes the undermining of the
bodily health, with its weakness nnd
lameness, and soreness and pain. Next the
nerves income unstrung and lose their
control or are subject to frequent spasms
of extreme over-excitement. Then fol
lows in quick succession the weakening of
the brain itself. Things become unreal;
the days of the poor victim are tormented
by hallucinations and the nights by
dreams which sap the strength and make
natuarl sleep impossible. And finally it is
the Insane asylum or death.
It is these conditions of men which Df.

the door of the mad house—inert who hod

cold may quiet him immediately. Put a
t-wel around his shoulders first so as
not to wet the clothing. Anger is really
an attack of the nerves in which we are
only half conscious.lt i* a nervous disease,
showing itself sometimes in irritability,
or actual wickedness. Some children are
angry one moment and very affectionate
the next, while others are cruelly so. tor
turing animals, quarreling constantly with
P aymatt s always in .mischief. The first
kind are only neurasthenic and can le
cured easily. The others may be helped,
and sometimes cured. For neurasthenic
children this is the treatment: Give the
child no alcohol. cofTee, tea. sweets, rich
or acid fouds, spiced’ meats, indigestible
vegetables ljet it drink noth ng but wa
ter or milk. He .should have nourishing
fo> and. eggs, light fsh. brains, swe t breads,
1 mbs, fresh vegetables, chicken, l.eef
and mu non. stale or toasted bread with
good butter. Most important of all is the
regularity of his life. He should rise, eat.
work, play, walk, go to bed at fixed times.
Even on Sunday he should be employed,
so that he does not become 1 ke so many
* Sunday bad boys.” Knowing what he
has to do every minute of the day there
is no room for revolt. He can not hope
tj etc are fix and tasks or play a iitrle
longer. ' He ought to have Ms daily
bath, be well rubbed, and out in the open
air as much as pcssible. It is well for him
to take phosphates as medicine in sum
m r. Cure him of his debility and >ou cur ?
his irritability. For the rougher angry,
wicked child, the following regimen is
good. Let him have a less stimulating
di< t than the other, with more vegetables
and less meat. Long walks and plenty of
outdoor exrrcise. It Is well, too. to give
him bromide of potassium combined wi'h
digitalis. At least three times a week he
should have an electric or sail bath.
For Timid Children.
The timid child is so generally from too
much reflection. His mind should be well
furnished with stimulating thoughts. He
should be well-fed and his system toned
up by a good regimen, not by drugs. He
ought to have cold baths, be well rubbed
with rough towels and alcohol, and have
plenty of gymnastic exercise. Even the
use of injections of serum are advisable,
that he may feel thoroughly alive. Cour
age is only optimism under another form.

remark that the story telling of nurses

giants and dragons is utterly harmful.
But suppose the child “cannot sleep with
out a light in the room.” Do not force
him to do so all at once. Reason with
him, and first make it very small, then
let. it come from a hall or other room
through the open door. If, as is some
times the case, the child complains of
nightly terrors, waking with a cry, the
cause is either a defect in digestion or in
tho nerves. Perhaps he goes to bed too
soon after supper, or his nerves require a

those who lack physical strength, pale,

health but actually not so A child
whose stomach is dilated, arterial pressure
low, relaxed all over his body can
not study well. One hour of attention Is
more than he can give. The cure for
laziness does not lie In cajolery or threats;
whero there Is the least doubt as lo their
heallh this should be first cured. But In
many instances a child that is perfectly
normal, who likes *o read an interesting
book, will not study. Hero comes the
larger question of the studies nnd leaeh
ers. Are the studies Interesting, or <k>
the teachers make them so? Often the
hours at school are too long and more Is
asked of the boy of 8 than a man of 10
could do. Perhaps the child's attention
has not been drawn to his work. If
so, try to show him how It helps him to
understand life, or to do his work. Let
him b< ashamed not to know what young
er children know, treat him reasonably,
not brutally, nnd the lazy boy may ba

his brain to act and give him good habits,
nnd he will not be lazy any longer.

New Hot Air Apparatus.
This new treatment simply carries na
ture’s suggestion a step further. It has
been found that even at a temperature of
400 degrees, which Is the temperature of a
hot baker’s oven, the skin has the power
of throwing off perspiration so rapidly
as to prevent h rm from coming to the
patient. When the oven has reached this
degree of heat the metallic outside is hot
enough to burn the skin at the merest
touch. The only reason that the patient
is not burnt is that the body is not al
lowed to come in contact with any of the
metallic parts of the apparatus. Under
this intense heat the streams of water
from the patient, loaded with uric ac.d
and other debris, which an insufficient ex
cretory system has left in the bloo i to
cause suffering. The pains in knees
get less or are gone, the get Umber,
and the fingers are supple. During the
short stay in the hot air the body temper
ature goes up 3 or 4 degrees from the ab
sorption of heat. Food in the stomach is
rapidly digested, every organ is flushed
out with the hot blood, the brain cleared
of accumulated broken-down tissue. Then
the patient Is placed on the table for o
massage, followed by 6ea salt bath, given

throughout, does tot suffer equally at all
points; generally it is either the head,
the heart or the stomach that lead the
way in the hurrying march to the grave.
It is here in the most sorely afflicted part
that you first feel the thrills of anew
and glowing life with a vividness that al
ways surprises with glad joy, the stupe

clearness, to glowing brlgtness; the wast

calls for nourishment; the enfeebled
heart, struggling and laboring to keep the
patient above ground, leaps into whole

The I.ying Child.
Most children are liars. Sonvtitn 3
they lie to escape punishment. Living
for the present they do not look to the
morrow, and if they can only postpone
the evi! that is motive sufficient. The
spoiled child, accustom'd to mix in the
conversation of his elders, lies to attra t
attention. Fear of not pleasing, dsi e
to Justify themselves, vanity, all o n rib
ute to making the child iie. Th- y act on
impulse, seeing the success of the moment,
rather than final right. Search and try
your children to see whether they te 1
the truth. Make them ashamed to do
otherwise. Try to correct them quietly
and reasonably; and. above al . give tlcm
a good example in this respect dally. l 4 et
the child know at once that lying is use

bed time is a good time lo impr ss upon
its mind the enormity of the crime of ly

fectionately and sympathetically,
finking the Child Obey—Piiuialinient
A child cannot be well brought up cither
with continual caresses or perpetual bul
lying. Treat the child more as an equal,
whose obedience you demand on reasona
ble grounds, because you are older at and
know more than he does. Compel his
obedience by showing him the bad re
sults of his disobedience. ifiit
at the same time let his personal
ity have piny, bo that he may learn
lo do for himself as much as possible.
Ijet him feel free, so long as he does right.
As to punishments, it Is not on record
that any one was ever Improved by bar
barity. Depriving a child of bis walk or
making him study by way of punishment
gives him a distaste for s what he should
like or deprives him of the air he needs.
It Is no cure for nervous children to be
so frightened that they tremble more at
fear of punishment than from the tearing
of their nerves. The truth Is lhat the rea
sonable child treated reasonably requires
little or no punishment. Rather tuik to a
child than beat him. Is-t him see that he
was wrong to do what he did, and he will
nemember this better than the beating.
The mistake generally made is that the
parent seeks peace, not the reformation
of the child. Utilize the self-respect, the
a fleet ion of your sons and daughters for
helping them lo the right. l,et them see
that you are looking solely to their In
