OUR AUGUSTA LETTER.
Augusta, Ga., Hay 7th, 1883.
Kjutoks Union Recorder:
If the contents of this letter are
Viry and uninteresting, your readers
must attribute it to the fact that 1
liave just left “the Dentist’s chair.”
Yes, 1 have enjoyed the luxury of a
-tooth-pulling. It took me a long
time to be convinced that it was a
Fsaxury. In fact I didn't so decide un
til my unruly masticator was safely
deposited on the dentist’s table.
Then 1 felt like shouting for joy and
treating the whole crowd to—soda
water. If Dr. Winkler had then signi
fied his intention of running for Gov-
♦.imor of Georgia, 1 would have offer
ed him my support in preference to
either Racon or Gordon. Tell Harry

jKrations, to make a note of his old

A WORD TO THE PARTY.
In this campaign The Chroncle does
not intend to say anything that will
tend to inflame the public mind.
While advocating the claims of Major
Bacon, The Chronicle will not indulge
in anv unjust or unfair charges against
Gen. Gordon. It is most desirable
that there should not be a campaign
of detraction and slander, and the
supporters of Major Bacon and Gen.
Gordon should by all means avoid
precipitating upon the State a heated
and bitter contest. There should be a
fair and full expression the will of
the people, and all true Democrats
should abide in good faith the voice
of the majority, honestly expressed by
the usual methods heretofore employ
ed by the party.

he had denounced the sentence of Dr.
Armstrong as infamous, that he had
