Mr. Jolm T. Dennis, Eatonton,
Ga., writes as follows touching the
time to dig and the manner of
saving sweet potatoes: “Most
E eoplo wait until the vinos are
itten by frost. I know that is a
general rule, but will not always
hold good. For instance, last
Reason after frost it was so wot
that sweet potatoes had to bo dug
when the soil was too wet to do
such work, and most everybody
lost their potatoes. 1 always dig
when the potatoes are ripe and
when the soil is dry, haul up and
bank in a bouse, putting straw
over them, and let them stand for
a week or more then cover with
corn stalks and dry sand or dirt,
and i hardly ever fail to have
potatoes the year round.”
Words Fitly Spoken.
President Northen in his tino ad
dress before the State Agricultur
al Society at its nu eting at Ce-
dartown last Tuesday paid the
following just tribute to the late
Judge F. C, Furman, of Baldwin
Taking sixty-tive acres of worn,
Middlo Georgia land, fairly rep
resenting all sections of the state,
under usual methods, Mr. Furman
the lirst year, produced eight
bales of cotton, or one bale to
eight acres. The second year
under Intelligent improvement,
he gathered twelve bales—an in
crease of fifty per cent, over the
first year’s production. The third
year, under still more progress, be
gathered twenty-four bales—an
increase of ono hundred per cent
over the immediately preceding
year. The fourth year he gathered
forty-eight bales, an increase
again of one hundred per cent
upon the preceding year. The
fifth year, the one immediately
before Mr. Furman’s death, be
gathered eighty-eight bales, or
just one thousand per cent in
crease over the work of the first
year. No bank, or syndicate, or
trust, stretching its greedy extor
tion to its most wicked tension,
can beat that record on worn,
Georgia land that averages three
dollars and twenty eight cents per
acre. Tell me, are the resources
of a Georgia farm, as found in
such land, at such prices, with
such possibilities, valuable? If
so, that element of success is fixed
and we are ready to proceed to
But, says the chronic croaker
Mr. Furman died before he gave
to the world the cost, of this splen

did not die before he settled be
yond all question the magnificent
possibilities of our soil, as lie un
covered the splendid riches of our
inheritance. Whatever marvelous
production Georgia may yield, it
cannot now he said to ho isolated
and sectional. In the presence
of this magnificent experiment
and in honor to the memory of
the grand man who made it the
world now knows “there is life
in the old land yet.”

Brother farmer have you ever
thought of tlio embarrassments
that your wifo undergoes through
the want of conveniences about
her home, that you might arrange
by spending a littlo time and
forethought? Have you ever
thought that your wife doos as
important work on the farm as
you do, and her strength often
is moro sovorolv tuxedj tliftt if
her hands are hard and rough, it
is much your fault by not pro
viding her with homo convenien
ces that you should? I do not
think it is because men do not
care for their families that they
aro careless in regard to homo
conveniences, hut it is from a
neglect of study as to what con
veniences aro necessary for the
comfort and prosperity of his
wifo and family; wlmt convenien
ces ho could arrange to make her
homo attractive, pleasant and
lovely. Wo have seen farmers
very careful to have good fences
around their farms, while the yard
fence is so shackly it will not turn
stock of any kind, which causes
the already over taxed wifo many
a wearied hour. Not only this,
hut it gives the homo such
an uncomely appoarance, that
the wifo shudders at tho thought
of visitors. How often have you
rode to town and spent a half
day or perhaps a wholo day
without any business whatever
just simply to see and ho seen,
that you should have spent in
building a fonco. I have seen
farmors spond ono or two days a
week at town, start early and
stay so late you could not discorn
who they were, who had not oven
i rail around the house to keep
stock from tho door; and yet they
would tell you they did not have
time to spare from tho farm to
ild a yard fence. But perhaps
you have a yard fence; tliero is tho
rout gate, if a gate it may bo called-
nopped and barred to keep it up
ind to perform its. gateship. How
can the wife moot her lady visi
tors with that grace and pleasant
ness of expression, that is required
to make tho visitor fool that lier vis
it was appreciated when she lias to
lift and remove a half dozen rails
from the gate before her visitor
can enter, when you that very
morning had strolled over to a
neighbor’s to spond a little
friendly chat, which time, if spoilt
in making a gate, would have put
a nice gato well hung with a good
latch to fasten it? But this b
not all; after the gate embarress
ment is over and the visitor ii
taken into tho house, the next
thing that seizes the poor wife’s
mind is the “dinner.” No con
veniences for cooking; no water
handy, no wood, a hot kitchen to
cook in; but tho poor woman
with a bowildorod step goes forth
to arrange up her hospitalities.
But having no wood, she calls
her husband to get some, which
he does in liaste, getting a few
green split poplar sticks which
make more smoko than heat; tho
dinner is sorrily cooked, when
the day you spent a fishing should
have been spent in preparing
good dry wood. But at a late
hour dinner is announced, and
mark the sad countenance of the
wife as her guest is seated at the
table. Laboring under great em
barrassment she acts awkward
ly which lowers her in tho
estimation of her visitor, makes
the dinner flat and the visit an
Would you ho astonished to hear
that lady say to her family, ou
returning homo that she did not
wonder at you always saying that
you was behind and out of heart
for you had such a poor help
mate; she was so slow and awk
ward, and tho poorest kind of a
cook, all because you aro un
thoughtful and neglect to arrange
things conveniently. But give
your wife all needed homo con
veniences, a nice yard fence, a
nice gato, nice walks, Hower beds,
a nice house, a well arranged
kitchen, a good milk house, a
good garden, plenty of water
handy, a good stove, good wood
and it handy. She could meet
her lady visitors with an expres
sion ol welcome, having none of
those embarrassments; slio could
treat her guest with politeness
and could serve up a dinner in
nice order and in dispatch. After
she has her dinner on tho table
she beholds it, and it is nice; din
ner is announced and as they sit
down to tho table, an inward in
nocent pride beams out through
her bright choorfnl face, which
sweetens the occasion and which
will haunt tho visitor in after
days, and your wife gets the name
of an industrious and a pie as ant 1J
Study to make your homo con
venient; by so doing you could
arrango. many little things that
time nor space will admit to speak
of now, that your wife would
thank you for; and one expres
sion of thanks from a loving
wifo is worth moro than a wholo
day of-idleness. • Remember your
farm is your kingdom over which
you reign supreme, your house is
your palace; give it all the beauty
and conveniences that are neces
sary to make it worthy of tho
name, and your wife will keop it
with queenly grace.—T. D. B. in

Synopsis of the Bill Introduced by
Senator Boyd, chairman of the
joint committee to bring in a bill for
the construction of good public roads,
brought in an important measure as
the result of the deliberations of the
It provides for the commutation
tax of Ilfty cents a day in lieu of road
working, which is not to exceed six
days in the year.
This road duty and commutation
tax is to supplemented by an ailva-
lorem tax sufficient to raise a sum
equal to the road capitation tax.
This being limited to six days, or
three dollars a head, the total of the
advulorem tax will be equal to three
dollars a poll or less. In a county
where there are 4,000 polls, the ed-
valorem tax will aggregate $12,000,
and the commutation tax and labor
estimated at fifty cents a day will bo
equal to $12,000 more. Thus the
road fund of a county having 4,000
polls will in cash or its equivalent, i
amount to $34,000 or less. The limit |
being so low the commissioners will |
probuly ussess the full limit, so the
total road fund will in most instances
amount to $0 a poll.
The county commissioners, or ordi- i
nary, where are no commissioners, '
shall have charge of tho road working i
of the county and shall appoint road
commissioners for each road district
as now provided. These commission
ers are to have the present power
of such officers in the trial and punish
ment of defaulters. They shall select 1
road overseers annually and shall
have tiie power to remove them wt
The overseers are to be paid $1 a j
day for the time they are actually
at work. The district commissiouers
are to make returns to the county
commisioners of the number of men
subject to road duty and tho num
ber of miles of road to be \rork- 1
ed in their several districts, and
upon theBe returns the commis
sioners are to assess the number of
bay’s work, not to exceed six days
i» the year.
The overseer shall summon to work
on the roads such a number of hands
as can be worked to advantage, and
if any of them offer commutation tax
of fifty cents a day he shall receive it
and summon other hands in tliefr
places until he has the requisite num
ber, and shall so proceed until he has
worked the number of days re
quired by the commissioners. When
the number of days or road duty as
sessed by the county authorities have
been exhausted the overseers shall
employ such hands and work tho j
roads such an additional time as the
county commissioners may direct. In
summoning hands due regard is to be
given tp placing them ou the roads
near their places of residence, but
their road duty shall not lie limited
to any one road.
The working of misdemeanor con
victs on the roads is also provided for.
It shall lie lawful to work them oil
roads in counties which have organi
zed chuingangs, and where there are
no such organizations a county may
hire out its convicts to another coun
ty and after paying tho fines, costs
and expenses of their conviction, the
remainder of the money arising from
the hire shall go into the road fund
of the county whence they lauie—
