Farmers Should Wait.
Marion County Patriot: Heretofore some
farmers have been in the habit of rush
ing in their guano cotton long before it
is due. Every bale of guano cotton
biought in early has us weight in depress
ing the spot market. Farmers, don’t use
your guano cotton ns a maul to beat down
the price. Wait until it is due.
Cot ton Damaged sft Per Cent.
Dawson News: The farmers are etill
blue over the condition of the cotton crop.
The crop in some districts has been prac
tically ruined from ;ho combined effects
of heat and drought, and all through this
•section it has been injured to an extent
that is very discouraging. It is estimated
that within the post few days the pros
pect for a yield has fallen off anywhere
from 25 to 50 per cent. Reports from over
the country would seem to indicate that
the conditions prevailing here are general.

Dcnth of >lnj. Hargrove.
Maj. Z. B. Hargrove died at his home
near Marietta Tuesday. Maj. Hargrove
lived in Rome for over 40 years, his fa
ther having been one of the founders of
that city. The Major held the office of
postmaster in Rome for i number of
terms under Republican administration.
He was a member of a prominent Geor

He was 68 years old. He leaves a wile
Too Much Cotton Seed Sold.
A respsesentative meeting of farmers
and land owners of Muscogee county was
held at the Court House in Columbus for
the purpose of discussing and devising
some day to stop the promiscuous sale of
seed cotton which has been going on in
this county in years past. In some cases
farmers and landlords have been done a
cerlous injustice by such salts on the
part of tenants. There was no formal or
ganization, the meeting being simply de
voted to an informal discussion of the sub
ject. The meeting memorialized the rep
resentatives and senators to have such a
law enacted at the next Legislature as
would attain the object desired. After
the meeting J. L. Riggers, who had come
in from the country, called attention to a
local legislative law on the subject. The
farmers will make a united effort to have
this enforced this fall.
Tifton** Cotton >lslll.
The work on the Tifton cotton mills is
being put through in rapid time, and the
place just now is one of industry. Be
tween thirty and forty workmen are em
ployed on the building and the walls ore
practically completed. The final shipment
of machinery will arrive about Sept. 1,
nnd there is little doubt that the building
will be ready for the placing on its ar
rival, as there are over a carload of brick
consumed every day and the big lime vat
is sufficient to slake a car of lime nt each
filling. At the eastern end of th*' main
building the foundation of tie* smoke

has been laid. The smoke stack proper

with his head bandaged as if he
had been run through a cane
mill, is giving the police a world of
trouble. He has been arrested three times
for being drunk, and seems to have made
tip his mind to stay in that condition for
the rest of time, no matter what threats
are made against him. He has both jaws
broken and all of his teeth knocked out.
He cannot speak a word, because of the
mutilated condition of his face nnd head,
but he managed to write that he had been
knocked down nnd robbed by some negroes
at Mtlledgeville Saturday night. He is in
a horrible plight. The Recorder hue twice

he writes his order, being quite export in
putting “whisky ami soda,” on paper. And
he always manages to have plenty of
money to pay for tin* drinks. His clothing

Tampa Times: St. Augustine has railed
Jacksonville's bluff in the capital removal
game and made a stiff raise, Jacksonville
ptiered |KM t,tw as e belt to the veins of
the state, and now St. Augustine offers a
splendid site and $250,000. Neither of th**e
places will win. however. It now* appears
likely that the capito) will remain in Tal
lahassee. but if it is removed Ocala stands
the best chance of capturing it.
Th© saw-mill men of the region around
Orlando are behind in filling their orders
for lumber, owing to the great demands
upon them. Conti actors and pineapple
men are using lumber as fast ns it can he
made ready for them.—Farmers are pre
paring for an early ciop of Irish potatoes.
Planting will begin within a week or two,
and from present indications the ar<*a
planted to the fall crop will be the largest

arranging to plant thirty barrels of seed.
Gainesville Muni Work,
Gainesville Sun: The best way for
Gainesville to secure the location of the
capital is for our citizens to go down into
iheir pockets and raise a sufficient sum to
enlighten the people of he state upon
what the claims of this city are based.
We know, of course, that of right the
capfcal should come here—that this is
the natural location for the seat of gov
ernment, but how are the people of the
state to know it unless they are intelli
gently informed? The duty of our citi
zens in this emergency is so plain that
it would seem impossible to misunder
stand it. If we are going to make a
fight for the capital with any hope of
success, the first thing to do is to whack
down that which will bring the best re
Itlot Expected t Pensacola.
The first serious friction between the
whites and blacks at Pensacola now
seems imminent. White residents of the
eastern portion of the city, having re
quested the management to call off a La
bor day picnic for the colored, which was
to have been held in the neighborhood,
and having been refused’, appealed to the
City Council, and that body recommended
that the picnic be not held. The negroes,
having been granted permission to use
the place, o public park, for a public
speaking, now advertise the fact that a
grand picnic, with games, etc., will take
place, and notwithstanding the recom
mendation of the City Council, the blacks
say they will carry out the programme.
The white citizens are as equally deter
mined that they shall not, and a friction
with serious results may be expected next
Heavy C igar Shipments.
Tampa Herald: For the week last year
corresponding to last week there were 202
cases of cigars shipped from Tampa, or
just 160 less than was shipped last week.
This would make last week’s shipment
362 cases. The shipments for that w r eek
last year amounted to 1,010.000 cigars,
which is 760,000 cigars less than was ship
ped last week, for the shipments for that
time show there were 1,860,000. For last
week up to the year corresponding with
last week, there had been 10,601 cases of
cigars shipped from Tampa. These con
tained 53,005,000 cigars, which represented
the business up Cos that period. For this
year there have been 15,053 cases shipped
from Tampa, which contained 75,425,000
cigars. This is 4,452 cases more than were
shipped for last year. It a.lso shows 22,-
420,000 more cigars than were included in
the shipment of goods for last year. This
is a geneial increase all along the line,
and is unmistakable evidence that the
business has been growing wonderfully
all this year and will continue to grow
unCil the end of the present season.

IN ORDER TO BE CURED
What Must You Do? You Cannot Cure Yourself, and
t Nature Will Not Cure You.
Are You the Man to Whom Thin l* Written? If o You W |l
Know W hat to Do.
In order for you 10 be cured, it is noe only necessary
that the doctor w*ho treats you should know aboslutely
the disease which uffetes you, but just how far that dis
ease and all its complications have undermined what is
called your general health.
Can you tell, from your feelings, what vital organs of
your body your disease is now attacking? You feel at
P times that your nerves are unstrung, that your brain
does not grasp things as it should, that your kidneys are
out of order, that your heart does not beat regularly.you
J.Newton Hathaway,M.Dknow that a little cut or scratch on your skin does not
heal readily, that your appetite Is fickle, that your bowels are irregular, that
there is lameness and stiffness about your muscles and joints, that there are
shooting pains in different parts of your body, that your feet and joints swell,
that your nights are disturbed by unnatural dreams, that you are startled by
common sounds, that you get dizzy and see spots floating before your eyes.
Every one of these symptoms means the serious progress of your disease.
You don’t want to experiment, you want to be cured. You want to be rid of every
distressing symptom; you want to feel that vigor and enthusiasm which goes
with true healthy manhood; you want to be able to work and to enjoy.
I have treated cases like- yours for 20 years; I know what your symptoms
mean, and 1 know that if you have not delayed too long, I can make you a
sound, well, vigorous man, fitted for the place in the world which nature intended
for you. Other doctors send me their “hopeless” cases knowing that I never fail
in any case which I undertake. I make a specialty of cases like yours—chronic
diseases which batfie the skill of other physicians.
Let me know about your case in fullest detail. Come to my office if you can;
if you cannot, write to me. Unless you take a course of treatment, it will cost
you nothing for my services—consultation and advice are free. Possibly you need
no medicine; if nor, I will tell you so and tell you what to do and you need pay
me nothing; possibly also, I cannot help you—if not, I will tell you so frankly
and without fee.
At most my charge will be merely a nominal one, which will be no financial
burden to you.
I have just published anew edition of my new 64-p page book, “Manliness,
Vigor, Health,” a copy of which 1 will be glad to send you free, postpaid, if you
will send me your name and address.
You can judge much better what I can do for you, and so can I, after we
have had an interview or corresponded with each other.

Matters of Interest to Shipping Men
The Isaac Joseph Iron Company is to
bring considerable more scrap iron from
Cuba to Savannah for export and inte
rior distribution. A schooner is expected
in the next few days with 1,000 tons. She
wdll also bring a large lot of mahogany
lumber. The shipment is from Matan
zas. This company will shortly export a
lot of scrap iron to Genoa on the steam
ship City of Gloucester.
The British schooner Severn arrived
yesterday from quarantine, and was dock
ed at the Central’s wharves, where she
will load naval stores.
The British steamship Ardova, clue Sept.
25 for Liverpool, was posted at the Cot
ton Exchange yesterday.
Trade in sail tonnage shows no im
provement in any of the various depart
ments, owing largely to the absence of
suitable vessels. There is a good demand
for vessels for all off-shore trades and
full rates<par# bid. but the offerings are
very light. Coastwise freights continue
quiet, with rates firm. In steamer freights
the demand for tonnage is limited, yei
handy boats command full rates when
ever available. Cotton and general cargo
rates from the South are strong.

INSURANCE MEN ANGRY.
lUons Followed From a Conversa
tion Regarding Companies.
An encounter between two well-known
fife insurance men on the Bay yesterday
ntuining created a good deal of talk, form
ing a rather general topic among their
friends the rest of the day. The unpleas
antness between them resulted in a fight
that was without serious results, though
one of them was struck on the head with
a paper weight.
The insurance men had a discussion
two or three days ago about buisness mat
ters, so the story runs, and one made re
ntal ka about the other's company that did
not meet with an immediate challenge,
though they lingered, a canker, to gnaw

addressed decided he must have satisfac

continue the discussion they had had a
few days before. The gentleman receiving
the call informed his visitor that he was
very busy just them, but would see him a
little later. The other insisted, however,
and soon advanced to the attack, declar
ing that he did not like what the other had
said in their conversation.
To repel the attack, the gentleman call
ed upon lifted a paper w ight and teed
it to seme effect. The ore who was struck
then retired, but returned presently with
a relative. Others had gathered in the
office in the meantime, however, and the
hostilities that seemed imminent were not
allowed to proceed.
A policeman was called in by the user
of the paper-weight. The officer was re
ques ed to arrest the visitor, who had
originally precipitated the trouble, but the
latter countered with a request that the
other be arrested. The officer remarked,
though, that he couldn’t arreat (he gentle
man in his own office, but that he could
take the invader into custody. Doing so,
he conducted the gent’eman to the side
walk. where he was released, the charge
bcirg immediately withdrawn by the gen

curred. All he wanted, ho said, w r as to
