won by 20,000 to 80,000. Three,

OUR JACKSON LETTER.
Dear Banner:—Jhavo just re
turned from a flying visit to Madison
and Banks counties. Leaving the
Northeastern railroad at the thriving
village of Harmony Grove near Dr.
Hardman’s and going east six miles,
yon pass ont of Jackson into Banks,
and crossing Black’s creek, yon arc in
Madison county. Some of the hnest
bottomlands lie along this creek,
intrinsically worth from $50 to 5100
per acre. The finest corn I have seen
for years is now standing on these
fine creek bottoms and yet in the
midst of all this, com recently sold at
a sale at 51.15 and $1.25 per bushel
and wheat at $1.80; and why f Simply
because threeafourtha ot tbe land
planted in cotton.
On the Banks county side ot this
creek upon a farm that has only pro
duced about six baits of cotton per
year, for years, and which used to
produce thousands of bushels ot corn,
only enough land has been planted
in com to make 150 bushels, while 25
bales of cotton will be gathered this
year, and the producer of these 25
bales says he 'fwill fall a little behind
with his guano bjlts.”
Mr. Jesse White will soon start
steam saw mill about three miles east
of Harmony .Grove. In close prox
imity are five gins and two cam mills,
nlLthe gine-are . feyg-yt—Lower .down
in Madison county, tbe fields are
white with cotton, many ot them
looking as, though they had not been
picked over the first time.
Among bumness men the impression
prevails, that cotton would advance

north waa unlocked—that it will ad

THE CITY OT CANDLER.
At the lut term of our superior
court a Verdict was obtained to ssli
in ’lots,’ the 'Long lands,' about seven
miles above Jeffereon; but it waa not
then known that they would soon be
'town lots,* and yet it is true, and the
city of ‘Candler’ looms up la the near
future, as the first town on the
Gainesville and Jefferson narrow
guageroad. Before this railroad en\
terprise was talked up, these lands
would not have brought $8 pet tore,
and yet they add on last Tuesday for
three times the amount.
GOOD PRICES FOB LAND.
A large amount of land was sold
aggregating nearly $25,000,or nearly
$10 per Rore,mnoh of it unimproved
and it Is thought it would bring 20
per cent on tho Investment to«dar. - A
large tract of land waa recently
bought by a citisen of this county,
lying along the Athena road, A rail-
read' to 'Athens would pass thr ough
or near it, and we venture the predic
tion that it would, upon the comple
tion ot such a road, pay $00 per oent.

that a few years ago were supposed
to be worn out, are now producing
