It would be f.n improvement to the town if ail these (sheep-shade) Chinaberry trees which adorn the side walks in different places were trimmed up. They are anything but pleasing to the looks of the vil lage. Present progress and im provements of time demand a change. City Marshal Eoyd of Atlanta, contributes the following puzzle to the constitution, and offers to give any of Ihe citizens their street tax who will solve it: Take any six of the foiling figures and make 21; 1,1, 1,8, 8,3, 5,5, 5,7, 7,7, 9,9, 9. The puzzle seems to be an easy one. Mr. R J. Dyar exhibited at this office a fine steel hammer which he forged in his shop, here in Ho mer, tor Mr. G.R. Patterson, a cit izen of this county. Tie hammer is nicely polished and for dura bility and fine workmanship, can’t be beat.

Parties eceiving this notice will govern themselves by the date. Parties coming to town horse back, should avoid hitching ou the side-walks—it is improper, it is un due courtesy to ladies, compelling them to hava to leave side-walks ,and walk out in the road to get round—saying nothing of the stench, etc., that arises; and yet the danger incurred to children that may at any time “toddle” un der the animals’ feet. Again, at, night adults are likely to walk up again it them and be kicked to pieces. Of course it is negligence, more than anything else on the part of the hitchers, but then a word in time may save a life.

Thcre’is nothing egotist c in seeing your frieudt* names appear in print.
