THE FREE PRESS. G. D. RUCKER. Editor & Propr. FRIDAY. JAN. 27, ISO-?. EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY. Mr. W. C. Wall, the popular ijiummer, was in Alpharetta yesterday. The Fkee Press r.turns thanks to the railroad authorities for Rew year favors. Bob Nesbit is the proqd father of a new girl, and mother and babe arc both .doing well. Jim Smith has named his new boy Robert Berner, in honor of pur Georgia statesman. Harvey Webb returned to Pallas, Texas, last week, and will u.akp that pouutry his home. The young man who fails to attend , the Alpharetta high school is in his own light. The pleasant and familiar face of Mr. I John P. Webb, of Norcross, was seen on our streets yesterday. The snow is about gone, but it lias 1 left the public roads in a most dreadful | condition. They arc as aqfj. as a rotten | pumpkin. Mr. T. A. McCleskey has pqi’chascd ’ Mrs. Rinnie Letson’s residence, on Ros well street, and will immediately take 1 possession. Let our in tlicir • letters on Tuesdays, as The Free Press ■ will hereafter be born a day earlier than j heretofore. Mr. G. H. Collins has taken charge of ! the mercantile business at Warsaw, and is making it hum. Green deserves suc cess, and we predict hn will succeed. We observe that the machinery qf the { Alpharetta debating society lias not yet been set in motion. Why is <t that Pro cessor Swanson docs not touch the but ton? Several Alpharettians went to Atlanta yesterday morning. Miss Alta Howell, >rho was among the number, will spend I Several days with friends in the Gate pity. TiirFrke Press will hereafter goto Roswell on Thursday instead of Satur day. This change j; made necessary in order to accommodate our one hundred readers at that office. Mrs. S. T. Kimbcll wastakaq violently (11 last afternoon, a»,d thought for a while that tjie could not recover. However, she rallied after a Short While, and is now out of danger. Nothing has yet been heard of Bob McGinnis, who mysteriou ly disappeared about four weeks ago. His family are! greatly troubled at bis failure to return ! They think he has been foully dealt : with. If every militia district in Milton county is hs scarce of rabbits as Alphar etta district, the county is out of seed. The boys about town have caught more than two hundred rabbits during the ' present snow. Fire wood usually sol's for 50 cents a two-horss load in Alpharetta, but the re pent snow ran it up to 75 cents a load, and even at that price it wasliard to get. ; Some of our citizens ought to go to. the j ant and learn her Wi.ys. Mjf. J. C. Booker, of near Bu|uth, was 1 found dead last Tuesday. He had been i hauling and it is supposed his team killed him. He lived with Mi. Joel Webb last year, and he was buried on Wednesday at Union Hill. One of the crying necessities of the times is the immediate establishment of a tri-weekly mail line between Alphar etta and. Doraville, via Nyc and Haist tUg. The good people along this pro posed rotate, are almost without mail service. Owing to,the severe and continued ill, ness in his family,' the editor has had no time to get out and collect what is due The Free Press. All who are in arrears \vill confer a great favor by calling at the office and settling and renewing for this year. Mrs. George D. Rucker’s condition re mains unchanged. She has been very IjOW for nearly three months, and lias been a most patient sufferer. With the pleasant change of weather now taking pljZ.ce w<? hope for a favorable change in her condition. John Manning, colored, swore out a warrant against his brother-in-law, Joe Teasley, last Saturday. Joe was charged with having attempted to break John's head with a flre-poker, but when the fact was recalled that John’s head is Ifinky, the case was dismissed as a farce. Uncle De;;qy Gentry died last Monday, and was buried on Tuesday at Lebanon graveyard, where wife was buried several yeays ago. Unclje Deijny was one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of the county. He leaves infiny relatives and a great host of friends be hind him, and the place made vacant by his death will be hard to fill. For the purpose of closing out oiy stock of winter Clothing, Shoes, Etc., we have established a temporary branch house at tho Treadwell old stand in Alpharetta, where, beginning next Wed nesday, we will sell these goods regard less of pripes. This is your, opportunity. Come and examine the goods and get prices Caim, Lrqs A Love. The last legislature changed the jury, law of this state. The names of all grand jurymen will hereafter be placed in the traverse jury box also. The commission ers will meet in February and make the required alteration, It is a good law The traverse jurors should be men of tie; Clearest intellects and most spotless Integrity, many of which class of citiaens are to be found within the limits of the good county of Milton Tl.v new Miltou Enterprise made its appeal ance yesterday. J.din F. Barnwell is edit r, and (*. A. Nesbit publisher. It is a very creditable sheet. The Fi;kp Press extends its best wishes for the success of tho Enterprise. There js no reason why Alpharetta should i;ot have two great newspapers. There may lint be a fortune in cither one, but there is a world of fun, which will increase as she next political season draws nigh. Tho Enterprise, however, does not seem to have any political sex, but this is doubt less owing to its infancy. Put The Free Press on your exchange list, Johnny, and let us sec what kind of a caper you are going to cut. During the recent snow Jim Smith bought a live rabbit to show to his chil dren. He took it home and put it in a close room, that the children might see it rum The rabbit hopped put a window and fled, with Jim after it. A ffegro boy overtook the hare a»id returned it. The children had seen the rabbit rup, and now Jim must show them how io kill it. lie took it out doors and hit Jt on the head with a stick and said, “Now, chil: then, watch it die. 11 Jim threw the timid animal down for flpad, but it lit on its feet and split tjie spow for the swamp. If you see a rabbjt, please take it to Jim, as lie very much desires to teach his children how to kill the thjngs. The Free Press notices that several of the schools in North Georgia are boasting of their numbers, whicj] range from one hundred to one hundred and twenty. If the Alpharetta high school did not excel in numbers any of these schools, wc should feel like calling upon our worthy professors to vacate until the weather clears up. Tho attendance this wepk lias been one hundred and fifty, au;l when the weather finishes its arctic performances the regular attendance up on this most splendid educational insti tution will defy enuMeration. We repeat what we have often said before —the advantages afforded by the Alpharetta high school are unpqualed in this section of the state. Mr. John Smith, of Coker, Cojib coun ty; son-in-law of Mr. J. M. Dodds, of this place, last Tuesday Was the victim of an accident which may prove fatal. He was caught jfl the machinery of a saw-mill and literally crushed to pieces. His ribs were torn from his backbone and broken, and he received other internal injuries which will inost likely produce death. Dr. I'ace, the physician, says there is a bare possibility of his recovery, but the chances are greatly against such a result. Mr. Smith is well known by many people m Milton county, having lived here a great portion of liis life. The pews of tlie accident will carry sadness to the hearts of many people who know and like John Smith. From Cautoii. Gaston, Ga., Jan. 24.—The largest snow since 1880 fell during last week, it beiflg twelve inches deep, and is staying us well up to date. Tlie boys have been having big times sleigh riding, snowballing and rabbit hunting, and ar« now perfectly willing for the snow to melt away. Tho Etowah river was frozen over for the first time since 1886, and several men have walketl over ou the ice. How will you swap or sell cows? has been the question in and around Canton for the past week. A good milk cow or a fat beef seem to be in deiqand at a good One of the main troubles with our farmers of the present day is (u keeping more stock than they have a need for. They feed away their corn an,d stuff to surplus stock, which pays but little in this country. A man ought not to keep but just the stock he actually needs, but keep good stock—and then, when he has any to sell, he can get a good price, and will have more money than to feed away his stuff to stock that ;4it all and pay nothing. I wisli our farmers would Jtink over this matter and prosper thereby. Corn is now 5,0 cents per bushel in Cherokee, and wi,ll probably reach 75 or 80 cents before summer. Many of our farmers are preparing to plant more cotton this year than last, which is a very good idea, if they do not jo to extremes. A farmer ought to raise : his hog and hominy at home, and then I his overplus in cotton, so that he ean realize the cash in the fall to mpet his obligations and have some sjuire change Ipft over for spending money the next year. And another good idea is to stay j out of debt. I do wish our farmers i would qui,t this everlasting business of buying so much on time that they could .do without. They could live as well j and be happier and better oft' at the end ;of the year if they would try thig ! scheme. Let's see if we all can’t live ’ qlofjp f,qj; one year and get out of debt, j Then ws will be in a condition to hold I our crops for better prices and owe nojhyjg, which w ill beat any sub-treas-. uryplau or farmers’ alliance; and then ! we can all rejoice together in hopes of ' better times. Let's try it this yeag. Mr. Jasper Doss, who lives iiye miles above Canton, awoke at 1 o'clock one morning last week and found his babe dead in his arms. The babe died of croup, it being a worse case than the parents thought. It was five or six months old. Good times are in store for all those who work hard and live economically for the next four years, and I hope fop a longer time. Success to the farmers, as well as all other people, for 1893, and to The Free Press and all its readers. Come up, .Mr. Editor, and see us. There is plenty rabbits and birds here that we could find and enjoy a few days’ hunt. Jumbo. "I;, bi.iyiqg a cough medicine for chil dren," says 11. A. Walker, a prominent druggist of Ogden, Utah, “never I. $ i afraid to buy Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy. There is no danger from it, and rolief is always sure to follow.
