Mr. Eli Hubbard lias returned from a visit of some months to Home and vicinity. Mr. B. T. Bethuue lias purchased Btae Ball. The match game between the Madi son and our Homo Club was broken up on Wednesday evening by rain, greatly to the disappointment of hun dreds who had arranged to witness the final game that afternoon. The OQ Monday was won by tile Madison Club in a score of 19 to 7 I he second game on Tuesday, was wit nessed by more than a thousand peo ple, and was one of the best played gutues on both sides ever recorded "be tween amateur players. This game was won by our liouip club seoriug in 8 innings, 9 to Madison’s 8. The last inning was prevented by a heavy .rain. , The decisive game, to bo played on Wednesday, excited the city from cen tre to circumference, and the stores were nearly all closed at 4 p. oi. that employees might attend. But just At the hour llxod for the game’the rain began to fall. Notwithstanding this damper hundreds went oat in tlie dummy and in private conveyances to see what would be the end of a most interesting ball tournament. Many ladies, dressed in their pretty white gowns and jaunty hats, braved tlie elements to be "in at the death.” But Jupiter Pluvius was reigning and dispelled all the bright anticipations of both young and old. The Milledgeville Club proposed to Madison to play , tlie third game Thursday, but the Madison boys had got enough to satisfy them that a good retreat and a drawn battle, was better than defeat, and declined. The game attracted a large number of visitors to the city. Horthward The City Grows. No portion of thp city is growing so rapidly as that on the North border ing on Wayne and Jofferson, streets, eonttguous to the Macon and Augus ta, depot. The improvements made there within two years past is some thing phenomenal in the history of of the city’s progress; and they are solid, durable improvements, improve ments in which a large amount of money is invested, making a nucleus around which in the next five years, or even less, there will spring up a little town by itself. The locality is unexceptionable. Vacant lots embrac ing eligible building sites, of from 50 to 200 acres, lie within a radius of one to six hundred yards from the M & A. th^residenoe ^Mr.^R Adler, und is J R. r. d6pot . The situation of these lots is high and there is no part of the moving to his pretty home. Robt. Pottle of Warrenton, brother of Joseph E. Pottle, Esq., of this city, paid the latter a visit last week. Mr. Ed. Perkins left his pet, P. J. Cline, engine, long enough to visit relatives, last week.atCrawfordville. We are pleased to say that Mrs. prank. Skinner, who was quite sick recently, is in her usual health again. Mr. and Mrs. W. 8. Durst left for their home in Augusta lost Thursday, after a pleasant visit of two wgeks to this city. Miss Lula and Lela Hardeman of Maoon, and Miss Maggie Hardeman of Jones county are visiting Miss Mary Conn in this city. Mr. H. Adler and family left last Wednesday for their new home in Roanoke, \ a. They carry with them the best wishes of our entire com munity. Messrs. W. H. H. Barnes, Judge Ramsay, John M. Edwards and T. W. Turk of this county, attended the Ag ricultural Convention at Cedartown last week. Mr. Lyman H. Compton returned home last Saturday after an absence of ssveral weeks, visiting the fashiona ble resorts of the north. He went as far north as Montreal. * Mr. C. H. Herty left last Thursday ™ a visit Rome. He returns to the Johns Hopkins University the first of October. His visit to Milledgeville gave life to the town, and we hope he enjoyed it as much as hie many friends did. The following “old Vets city more exempt from sickness aris- sng from loeal causes. The residences in this neighborhood are owned very generally by white people of the hett class of our citizens. The diatanoe from this locality to the business cen tre of the city is only one mile, jut a pleasant walk in good weather and when the weather is inclement there is the dummy at the door almost of residents to take people dry-shod to their business. The possibilities of this part of our town in the future are great and promising, and we cal culate with certainty that the attrac tions in and about it will make it in a very few years the prettiset part of the town and the most desirable for a private residence and a pleasant so ciety. Mr. Editor;—The public is becom ing anxious to know what has become of the bill introduced in the Senate by Hon. Robt. Whitfield in the early part of the present session, designed to prohibit the sale of seed cotton in Baldwin county, and which under the inspiration of the vigorous speech of that able and distinguished gentle- mo n passed that august body of leg islators with but little opposition. Should this bill pass both Houses and become a law, it would not only be a gross and flagrant violation of tlie constitutional rights of the citi zen but it would subject the poorer class of farmers to serious pecuniary losses and inconveniences. It would also drive oil to the country stores in - **•-» ahauiuuat-, am ue weather oppressively warm. A lit y say Henry Grady’s speech was a grand one, and universally applaud ed. would prove a serious loss to the trade of our city, which under tlie be nign influence of prohibition is show- 1 ing so many signs of a new and vigor- 1 ous life and of a bright, and happier Masonic Hall is lonesome since our ! future.

No man, therefore with any manhood or sense of self-respect, could be ex pected to content himself and remain long in a community where he was not allowed the privilege of selling t}ie product of iiis own labor. In view therefore of tlie many grave objections to this seed cotton bill, a few only of which have been mentioned, and iu view of the great in terest which all good citizens should feel in the welfaro of our county and city, it is to bo hoped that some prompt and effective step will bo taken by our citizens to kill at once and forev er this iniquitous, pernicious and un constitutional seed cotton bill.

As is well known, ammonia is unhealth- ful in food, and dries up the bread material. Protection to consumers of food com pounds lies in their ability to choose those made from healthful substances. Unless manufacturers publish just what their baking powder is made of, do not use their goods, but buy instead CLEVELAND'S SUPERIOR ' BAKING POWDER. This powder is made only of strictly pure grape cream of tartar, and strictly pure bicarbonate of soda, with a little wheat hour to preserve it. This is attested by tho official analyses of Government and State chemists, ami physicians, and chemists of Hoards of Health throughout tho country. ClBVELAXD lhtoTHBBB, A LB AST, N. Y. Feb. 12. 18t>9. m 7p 32 ly . An Interesting Letter. We take the liberty of re-producing from a private letter, from an esteem ed lady friend,J now in Washington City, but born iri thie city, and who passed her happiest years here, the following very interesting extract: .Alkxandria, Va., Aug. loth, 1889. "Your graphic description of “a birth-day” has given me many a hearty laugh. If I had known of its coming yon would not have been forgotten. In this old time houored city, so, rich in historic memories to me, I liud tlie most interesting and sacred is Christ Church, which was finished JOB years ago—built of brick brought from England, and the ivey covering it came from Kenilworth castle made famous by Sir Waltei Scott. The pews of Washington and Lee are just as when those humble worship ers last occupied them. Opposite to each are marble tablets to their mem ory. The large green sward surround ing the Church, ornamented with weeping willows, and other trees has in this lovely spot a mound raised over the remains of our Confederate dead. The handsome urn in the centre is kept bright with flowers and at times, the entire mound is covered with floral offerings of most exquisite de sign. The Masonic Lodge building Con tains many precious relics, which once belonged to Washington. The candle-sticks are yet draped with the crape which was plaoed upon them, to be used at the funeral services. The clock which was in his room, is also there, of antique design, and when the last moment of life fled, its work ceased, as the physician cut the cord, and forever more, like the old clock in the song, "it was never to go again.” Mt. Vernon still attracts visitors as in days of yore, when guests were Wel comed by the Renowned Patriot. During the late war Alexandria was a grand camp—a strong force al ways here to protect Washington. Now, is peace, and homes are happy here. Tho time will come when the "Blue” and tlie "Grey” will never ask the question, “what made us do it?” H. A. W. State op Ohio, City op Toledo, i Lucas County, S. S. f Frank J.

I heard a young oollege boy say the other day, speaking of melons, that the watermilliou aud the eau- leloupe were "par nobile fratrnm,” a noble pair of brothers. Did he sex ’em right? Box 100. Answer.—We have no established authority on the subject. But we think he was wrong. Tho watermel on is strong, and travels alone all over the country; is known ns "Boss” in Boston, and "Rex” iu other towns; and is a male. The canteloupe is tender, juicy, sweet, delicate like a woman, and stays at home where she presides at the breakfast table all summer with the utmost grace and grandeur.
