which were greatly interesting, com
ing from an Association of able and
learned devotees to the noble and di
vine art of healing the infirmities of
humanity not only in the varieties of
disease, but also in applying useful
and healing medicaments for the
mind. We have often thought the
practice of medicine and surgery is
a laborious one and in many cases a
painful profession, bringing to view,
as it does, many cases of mental woe,
and bodily anguish. But the good
doctor enjoys the happiness of dispen
sing health and relieving pain, which
atones for many annoymnees in his
arduous and painful profession. Such
men ought to be, and are venerated

A CRAZY WOMAN CAUSES MUCH EX
On the afternoon Georgia train a
man came to the city with his wife,
who had entirely lost her mind. They
have been residing in Arkansas for
sometime past, and were on their way
to lier home in Columbia, S. C. As
the man was engaged in attending to
his baggage and effects the woman
strolled away, and when he came to
look for her found she had disappear
ed. With the assistance of the police
man on the beat’a search was immedi
ately made for her. After much in
quiry it was learned that she had gone
down Telfair street, where she was
discovered under a house. It seems
that she strayed from the depot to
this house and crawled under through
a small opening. The house is only
built about a foot above the ground
where she entered, and farther under
the. distance between the flpor and
ground is less. She crawled as far as
she could force herself, and was
wedged in such a position that she
could move neither way. A party of
men procured spades and dug the
earth away until one could crawl to
where she was, when a man caught
her by the hands and the ontsiders,
catching his feet, withdrew her from
her uncomfortable position. They left
on the afternoon train for Columbia.—

where, and his orders for tombstone
and cemetery decorations come in
daily from many points in Georgia
and South Carolina. He has' some of
the best professional skill to be had
at his yards, and it is a real treat to
inspect their work.—Evening News.
Elberton and Augusta.—The
people of Elberton are very anxious
to have a railroad connection with Au
gusta. They have had a meeting on
the subject and desired the Augusta

At the meeting all agreed that they
must ami would have an outlet to Au

should renew the old time associations
which were so pleasing to the jieople
of both places.
Washington, April 26, 1886.
A Democratic Senator who is post
ed as to the condition of business in
Congress, and the probable course of
events in that body, said yesterday;
“Everything seems to be settling
down to a long session of Congress.
It is true that Members of the House
talk about getting away the latter
part of Jun§. But this is simply im
possible. In the first place the legis
lation that is absolutely necessary—
I mean the appropriation bills—is not
in a forward State. Besides, there
will be considerable discussion on.
some of tlie appropriation bills in the
House, and you may rest assured that
the Senate will take its time to consid

and not hurry itself as it used to do,
when the Republican majority there
hastily considered them, following
the lead of the Senate Appropriation
Committee in increasing the expendi
tures, and being upheld in this by a
“When do you think Congress will
adjourn?'’ I asked a Senator. “We
shall be lucky,” said he, “if we get
away by the middle of August.”
He was in favor of Congress meet
ing earlier in the fall, say as early as
November for the long session, and by
the middle of October for the short
term. He also thought that the life of
Congress should begin and end in A-
pril, (instead of March. This would
give plenty' of time to consider legisla
tion, and would give the best season
of the year in this climate.
And it is quite probable the date of
the President’s inauguration will be
changed from the fourth of March to
the thirtieth of April. The amend
ment recently introduced in the Sen
ate to that effect seems to be popular.
It would be difficult to find any ob
jections to the change, and there are
many reasons why it is desirable.
Since our first President was inaugu
rated on the 30th of April, historically
the day is the proper one.
During the week, the room in which J.
Gould, Grand Master workman Pow-

HOW THE CONFEDERATE HERO'S
LIFE WENT OUT.
From the Detroit Free Press: About
daylight upon the Sunday of his
death, Mrs. Jackson informed him
that his recovery was very doubtful
and that it was better that he should
be prepared for the worst. He avos
silent for a moment and then said:
“It will be infinite gain to be traus
lated to Heaven,” He advised his
wife, in the event of his death, to re
turn to her father’s house, and added:
“You have a kind and good father,
but there is no one so kind and good
as your Hea\’enly Father.”
He still expressed a hope that lie
would recoA'er, but requested his wife,
incase he should die, to have him
buried in Lexington, in the Valley ot
Virginia. His exhaustion increased
so rapidly that at 11 o’clock Mrs. Jack-
son knelt by his bed and told him
that before the sun went down he
Avould be with his Saviour.
He replied: “O, no! You are fright
ened, my child. Death is not so near.
I may yet get Avell.”
She fell upon the bed Aveeping bit
terly, and again told him, amid her
tears and sobs, that the physicians
declared that there avos no longer any
hope of his recoA r ery. After a mo
ment's pause he asked her to call tin
“Doctor,” he said, as the physician
entered the room, “Anna informs me
that you have told her 1 am to die to
day. Is it so?”
When he was answered in the
affimath'e, he turned his sunken eyes
toward the (ceiling and gazed for a
moment or two as if in intense thcfught,
then looked at the friends about him
and said softly:
“Very good, very good; it is alj
Then turning . to his heart-broken
wife he tried to comfort her. He told
her that there was much he desired
to tell her but that he was too Aveak
for the undertaking.
Col. Pendleton, came into the room
about 1 o’clock. General Jackson

When told in reply that the whole
army was praying for him, he replied:
“Thank God! they are v r ery kind.”
Then he added: “It is the Lord’s day;
my wish is fulfilled, 1 haA'e always
desired to die on Sunday.”
Slowly his mind began to fail and
Avander, and he frequently talked in
and then the scene was changed. He
was at the mess table in conversation
with members of bis staff; now with
his wife and child; now at prayers
Avith his military family. Occasional
intervals of his mind would appear,
andduring one of them the physician
offered the dying man some; brandy
and water, buthe declined it saying:
“It will only delay’ my departure
and do no good; 1 want to preserve
my mind to the last, if possible.
A feAV moments before the end ar*-
rived, the dying warrior cried out in
“Order A. P. Hill to prepare for ac
tion!” “Pass the infantry to the
front rapidly.” “Tell Maj. Hawks ’
then his voice was silent and tlie sen
tence remained unfinished.
An instant later a smile of ineffable
SAveetness and .purity spread itself
ov'er his calm, pale face, and then
looking upward and slightly’ raising
his hands, he said quietly and with nn
expression of relief:
“Let uscross'over tlie river and rest
under the shade of the trees."
And then without sign of struggle
or of pain his spirit passed y way. Was
death ever so sAveet and peaceful!
Was ever rest so anticipated or
Hea\ r en so revealed?
