and the public that high water does
not stop his foundry and machine

he was very much surprised at the

A large Bacon organization had been
completed among the members of

and claims everything for Gordon.—
C. Z. McCord, Esq.—In our ab

various matters in the Augusta pa

pleased to have made notice. Among
them is the announcement of the can

Richmond county in the Legislature.
Mr. McCord has been a close student
of law, political science, the needs of
the people, and every interest affect
ing their prosperity. His mental re
sources, inherent and acquired, aided
by sound judgment, self possession,
forcible logic, eloquence, and impres
sive power of elucidation, eminently
qualify him to represent the people of
Richmond and the whole state use
fully in the legislature.

Untold millions will yet be appropri

Hon, H. H. Carlton’s Candidacy.
We do not care to occupy much
space in alluding to the Home Rule
question now before Parliament.
There are a goodly number of new
members who have been somewhat
frightened by the blood and thunder
speeches of Saulsbury, Chamberlain,
and some others, who have presented
to them a prospect of disunion and
insurrection in Ulster. Mr. Gladstone
will satisfy them after a while that
tliese pictures are worked up to sus
tain their ambitious aspirations for
place and power. Gladstone’s defeat
is not yet. If his policy is defeated
when the vote is taken in Parliament,
sometime in the summer, the dissolu
tion of that body will be followed by
a direct appeal to the people. Should
the people decide against Home Rule,
that will be the end of the struggle
for the present, and Mr. Gladstone
will retire from public life. The
struggle for home rule will not cease,
however, but continue with increas
ing zeal. Its adoption is only a mat
ter of time. The unconquerable spir
it of freedom is spreading in the Eng
lish Isles and the Government will
come to the terms of the Irish as a
measure of safety.
Talk and Practice.
Mr. Randall in his letter on the 18th
to the Augusta Chronicle says:
On Friday last, Hon. Win. D. Kelley
taunted the Democrats with once sym
pathizing Southward, where negroes
were whipped. That night a negro
approached him at the aristocratic
Riggs House, where he boards, ap
pealing to the friend of humanity and
brother of the whole human race for
some little place under Government.
Mr. Kelley resented the colored man’s
importunities, and some of his loyal
Republican friends kicked the poor
darkey out of that exclusive sanctuary.
No Southern man would have been
guilty of such an outrage, so soon too
afterprofessing such love for the ne
gro. My experience of Northern peo
ple is that, as a rule, they have no use
for negroes except as political dupes
Tin; Athens Banner Watchman, of
the 22nd contains a letter from Dr.
Carlton addressed to the editor, Hon.
T. L. Gantt, in which he says:
“Having been earnestly entreated
by yourself an 1 quite a number other
friends im < , as wei^.as other
counties of this, the 3th congressional
district, to become a candidate before
the district convention for nomina
tion to the 50th congress, and having
promised to decide the matter at as
early day as possible, 1 now beg leave
to make known my decision through
the columns of your most valuable
and widely circulated paper.”
He then goes on to say in substance
that he feels it to be his duty to yield
to the wishes of his friends, and form
ally announces himself a candidate
for Congress in the 8th congressional
district. He refers in very compli
mentary terms to the present incum
bent, Hon. Seaborn Reese. He makes
no war on Mr. Reese, but thinks
“Time about is fair play.” Dr. Carl
ton “Respectfully suggests that the
counties defer selecting delegates to
the convention as long as possible, as
Mr. Reese is absent at his post of duty
and I certainly do not desire to take
any advantage of his absence, but
would greatly prefer to canvass tlie
district with him.”
Dr. Carlton is a distinguished mem
ber of the Democratic party as our
readers all know, and says in sub
stance, he will cordially support Mr.
Reese if the majority of the Demo-'
crats shall prefer his election. Both
are high toned honorable men, and
the Democrats will be well represent
ed by either. Let all democrats bow
cheerfully to the decision of the ma
The Providence Journal tells how a
life was saved as follows: “A singu
lar affair occurred in one of the pleas
antest homes in the suburbs of our city
on Friday, the relation of which may
not only be of some interest, but also
of some use to the reader. A few days
ago the family physician visited the
game residence, and in the course of
conversation mentioned that while at
tending a sick child the child had sud
denly began to suffocate, owing to a
quantity of mucus getting into its
windpipe, and he had turned the child
upside down in order to relieve it.
This story passed almost unnoticed
except by the sister of the lady of the
house. On Friday the family, consis
ting of the husband, wife and wife’s
sister, w r ere at the table eating. Sud
denly the wife began to show signs of
suffocation. Her husband resorted to
the familiar remedy of patting her
smartly on the back, but it was una
vailing. She could not speak. Her
face became of a purple hue, and she
was evidently at the point of death.
At this moment her sister, r’emember-*
ing the doctor's story, seized her by
the ankles. The husband caught the
idea instantly, and the lady was soon
m an inverted position whereupon
she immediately coughed up the food
which had nearly caused lier death.
The husband blesses himself for the
story which tlie doctor so casually
told, without any thought that it
might help to save a life.”
Among many “wise saws and mod
ern instances,” I propose to scan a
few briefly, more for suggestion and
thought than for elaboration and
discussion. Modern scientists and
Medical gentlemen have very recent
ly announced in the press and journ
als devoted to their profession, that
it is not healthful for one to drink
coffee or tea while eating a meal.
How then do you account for the lon
gevity and unimpaired health, vigor
and endurance of our grand-fathers,
grand-mothers, and their mothers and
fathers, who lived in the early part of
this and the closing decades of the last
century? Hunt up the old menand wo
men now living, between the ages of
seventy and one hundred, and point
to a single one who ever before heard
of or followed this “modern instance”
of the speculative scientists and
health guardians. They drank their
coffee or tea and eat bread and meat
all their lives at the same meal, and
never felt any serious or even unpleas
ant after pains on that account. In
this, as in many other purely hygienic
method,s the old way is the best.
Again. Fifty or sixty years ago, our
fathers and mothers cooked their vic
tuals in iron vessels principally, many
using iron pots to boil coffee in.
There w r as little or no paralysis,_ dys
pepsia, rheumatism, Bright’s disease
or neuralgia in those days. Fevers
were the most common diseases then,
and they were caused liy clearing up
land or creek and swamp malaria.
These modern compound conglomer
ations o.f metals in the composition
of the cooking apparatus of this day
is the source of scores of new diseases
that our dead fathers and mothers
never heard of when they were boys
and girls and men and women. Our
soldier boys, in the late war, who,
when they abandoned tent and close
comutpUnion, eat bread and meat cook
ed in iron vessels or the ashes, and
drank hot coffee while snatching a
bite as the army was about to move,
were healthy and hardy, enduring and
as free from bodily ailment as any
men in the world. '“Throw physic to
the dogs,” and take to out dopr exer
cise and sunlight, and fresh air, and
eat wholesome food—how you like it,
and when you are hungry, and let
the scientists and health-keepers stir
their crucibles and publish their won
derful discoveries to the world as
much as they please, but stick to the
old way, it is the best, for the “tree is
known by its fruit.” J. H. N.

hours’ interview with the Sultan.
The American Minister presented to
liis Majesty gifts sent by President
Cleveland, consisting of 1,000 views^ of
scenery in different parts of the Uni

typical Indians, copies of the last

quested Mr. Cox to thank President
Cleveland for the “unique and valua
ble gifts.” His Majesty said he had
recently ordered the taking of a Tur
kish census and asked Mr. Cox to co
operate in the work by giving the
benefit of his American experience.
This he promised to do, provided his
his health, his duties, and his Govern
ment permitted him. The Sultan ex

in the progress of America and or
dered that Mr. Cox be shown his pri

Injuries by Floods.—The losses
by floods, on the Savannah river,
have seldom been exceeded in former
years. The crops on both the Geor
gia and Carolina side have been ut
terly destroyed, and the only chance
for the planters is to begin and plant
anew, as soon as the ground will ad
mit of it after the waters subside.
The temporary desolation is complete.
But such men as Col. Campbell and
Mr. Warren, whose places are near
Augusta, who have experienced such
disaster in the past, possess the spirit
and energy to proceed anew and with
good seasons, from this time forward,
will make all possible amends for the
ravages of the raging waters. Much
harm seems to have been done by
high water in the interio.r of Carolina
not only to the crops, but also to the
railroads and bridges.
Wheeling. W. Va., May 19.— A ter

Lincoln county, this State, Monday
night. Mrs. Margaret Donan, a wid

naticism and imagined that she had
been called on by the Lord to sacri
fice the lives of herself and her three
children to the Divine wrath. Early
in the afternoon sbe threw herself
upon her knees and spent several
hours in wild ravings. She then
arose, and arming herself with a large,
sharp carving knife, made her way to
a room occupied by her three daugh
ters, aged twelve, ten and eight years,
cut the throat of each child, and
plunged the blade into her own heart.
The bodies were discovered yesterday
by neighbors, who state that the
room was so bespattered with blood
as to bear strong resemblance to a

that my body s*hall be cremated, and
the ashes shall not be put in an urn,
but in the earth, over which my wife
may lovingly plant forget-me-nots. 1
direct also, with my dear wife's as
sent, that all funeral parade and ex
