Controller General Wright has received a letter from General Manager Scott, of the Georgia road, asking for more time in which to consider the qustion of pav ing taxes on the $388,000 worth of Atlanta end West Point debentures which the state claims the Georgia road owns. 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. Hu tiding In Griffin. At an early day the Central Railroad will begin the erection of anew four-story brick building on its right of way at the corner of Hill and Ilroad streets, in Griffin, to be occupied by the Griffin Gro cery Com pan j\ The building will have a frontage of fifty feet on Hill street, and will extend along Broad street 150 feet, with a railroad frontage of the same dis tance. A large and commodious ware house will also be erected in the rear for the storage of hay, grain and heavy groce ries. 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 gia family and hud a large number cf friends. Maj. Hargrove was recently United States commissioner at Waycross. He was 68 years old. He leaves a wile end family. 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 ftack. containing four cor loads of brick, has been laid. The smoke stack proper v ill tower 100 feet above this. Adjoining 4s the boiler room, where space is pre pared for four 250-borne power boilers, though only three will be put down at first, the extra space being for an addi tional boiler. Next is engine room, where the mammoth engine will be bolted to the solid concrete foundation with 6- foot bolts. Space is provided for additional engines whereby the motive power can be doubled. A Tronhlenomc CnMomer. Macon Telegraph: An aged man. 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 a Depended his line for drunkenness, pro vider! he would leave town within iwo hours, hut each time the polic* find him soon afterward lying down on the side walk drunk, and last night he again slept In th* Barracks. When he orders drinks 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 has not bean renovated in some time, and In aome respect* he resemble* a tramp, but th#* police cannot tell but that he i* a prince In dUgulae He claims that ins rime is T. H. Boyd FLORIDA. 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. Around Orlando. 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 ever put out in the vicinity. One man is 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 sults. 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 Monday. 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.

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 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. J. NEWTON HATHAWAY, M.

Matters of Interest to Shipping Men Generally. 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. PaNMongern by 9teamNhipn.

The Daily Telegraph observes: ”Acceptance of Li Hung Chang is al most the only thing the allies can do. His intervention would undoubtedly make for peace. It is pretty clear that, unless statesmen car do something to relieve the tension, affairs, so far as the military can deal with them, have arrived at a dead lock.” MORE TROOPS REACH PEKIN.

It will be remembered that he was severely beaten by young Carl Fletcher. A gentleman from Doc tor town reports that the steamer Altamaha left that place yesterday morning loaded with crossties, bound for Brunswick. The shipping of crossties by boat on the Altamaha is anew thing, he says, but is proving a great con venience and saving for the shippers. The long drought was broken this after noon. A fairly good rain fell, the first in several weeks. All kinds of farm and garden crops have suffered from the drought. H. Murphy, chairman of the Sanitary and Waterworks Commission, left to night for his oid home in New Jersey, for his annual outing. He was accompanied by Mrs. Murphy and her daughter, Mrs. J. L.

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 until the gentleman to whom they were addressed decided he must have satisfac tion. either through an explanation and retraction or a personal collision. Seeking the office of the other with this purpose in view, he told him he wanted to wm Cures Dandruff, Falling Hair, Brittle Hair and all Scalp Troubles, such as Itching, Eczema, Eruptions,etc. Purely Vegetable, harmless and reliable.

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 tleman in whose office the fracas had oc curred.
