The April term of Bike Superior court will soon be on us. In accor dance with our custom we publish the list of cases set for the first three days. Cotton Seed Meal. As many of our readers have not been accustomed to feeding cotton seed nieal to their cows and other stock, a word on this subject may be of interest. The town cow comes in for a liberal share of cotton seed meal. We are not able to say whether far mers generally willfeed much to them since they may have enough home raised food. It will not be amiss how ever to give them meal. J t is best, in feeding cotton seed meal, to mix it with the meal and give it iu in a small quail tit y at a time;one quart is enough at one feed, mixed with the other feed. All sorts of fine faed are given more economically when mixed with cut hay or corn fodder, wetted, Cotton seed meal should not be given to a calf. It is too rich and indigesti ble. Bran and corn meal are better. All sorts of meal are more profitably fed to any any animal when ground a fine as possible. vV Congratulation. Our worthy contemporary the Macon Telegraphed and Messenger yesterday contained the following j “The Barnesville daily Gazette is iu hand. As it comes without announce ment, we are unable to tell whether or not the daily issue will be kept up, If it is to be issued daily hereafter, we congratulate our contemporary. ” Since issuing the first copy. Wed nesday, a number of our citizens have warmly urged continuance. Our in tention in publishing the daily this week was to help the firemen in their fair and festival. We will at once 'can vass the community and if we can get a sufficient number of names as subscri bers, we will resume publication and continue the daily and- weekly. Those of our citizens who feel an finterest in thejprogress and prosperity of J Barnes-: vill have an interest in this matter and we must find out whether there is .suffi cient desire for the daily before we can assure our contemporary whether it will he continued. We thank you how ever for the compliment bestowed in the congratulation. Su.ici<le. The many friends of Col. S, D. Irvin who moved from Milner to Atlanta, but a few months since will sympath ize very greatly with him in his present affliction, A special telegram to the Macon Telegraph of the 14tli inst has the following: Albany, Ga., March 13.—Our town was stalled about 2, o’clock by the re. port that Mr. S. D. Irvin, Jr., son of Col. Irvin, of At lam a, was found dead in a fodder loft cn the north side of Cook and Irvin’s warehouse, in this city. Mr. Irvin was found lying on his back, his feet doubled under him, and a pistol lying across his breast liis overcoat, dress coat and vest were open, and it is presumed he held them back and placing the pistol over his heart fired, as none of the garments mentioned were perforated by the Bul let. The ball entered about half an inch above the left nipple, and ranged upward through the heart. No cause is assigned for the rash, r act, but the general supposition is that the deceased was laboring under a fit of,mental aber ration. He was a member of the ware house firm of Cook & Irvin, and was beloved and esteemed by all who knew him, The coroners jury rendered a verdict that the deceased came to his deatli by a pistol shot wound through the heart by his own hands. Memphis Tenn, 21st Dec. 1572. John T. Hunt Ear/., President: Dear Sir— Your letter informing me of the honor conferred on me by the Fire Company of Barnesville has been received.

Respectfully and Faithfully Yours, Jefferson Davis. The above is the reply of Mr. Davis to the letter informing him of the adop tion of his name by„the company. Barnesville, Ga., March 15, 1884. FAIR AND FESTIVAL. BY JEFF DAVIS FIKE COMP’Y. Grand Success and Everybody In Barnesville Happy. According to the prearranged pro gramme the Fair was to have closed last night. There were many things yet unsold, and among them some of the most costly and highly appreciat ed. The hall was soon crowded to its utmost capacity, and a babel of tongues clattered away till near the we sma’ hours. It was the Thomaston night, and we are pleased to note that quite a handsome delegation put in their ap pearance. Gordon Institute turned out en masse to enjoy the crowded hall and see the sights. We have never seen in any public en terprise more constant, laborious ef forts, bewitching appeals and zealous determination than the ladies of the several committees displayed through the entire week. Beginning Monday morning they arranged in Chesterfield taste and oriental beauty the counters foi vending their wares. Night and day throughout the week have their hearts aDdhands been given to the suc cess of the enter ; is: We can specify no one, but al! uve given the week to converting t .u various donations which have been contributed into money. So far as we have been able to get the names of the donors and their contribu tions the Gazette has given them to the public. If any have been omitted it has been because we knew not of them. “Come again,” say the young ladies of the Oyster table. Col. J. J. Rogers last night generous ly donated the firemen a half car load of lumber for the engine house. A grand raid was made on the cigar table night before last after our repor ter left the ini! and the entire stock was sold. We approached Miss Belle Mitchell for consolation last night and she shrunk back with the unexpected utter ance, “Don't ask me to take a chance.’ A special attraction at the hall last night was the music by the string band. The French harp accompani ment gave it a mellow sweetness sur passed only by angel sighs. We were requested last night to state that the ladies from the country around were very desirous of attending the fair, but could not on account of the rains. Among the active workers for the firemen at the hall every night has been Mr. li. B. Goodwyn. lie has been quite enterprising and liberal both in exertion and with his money. Mr. T. B. Lyon lias been on the alert for every stray dollar for the firemen. He has assaulted the pocket book of eve. ry drummer who has been in town this week every time bringing the kale seed. The receipts last night were very good,but might have been better but for the immense crowd. Tlie committee seeing that the article could not possi bly be disposed of, decided to adjourn to Tuesday night, when everything will be sold. Sweet is the remembrance of friends. When we left tlie hall and dropped in to the sanctum to record the results of the night, we found a treat from Mr and Mrs. C. W. Brown, in the shape of delicious Florida fruits and (lowers. Thanks for the delicious midnight re past. Demorests Magazine for April is a highly entertaining and instructive number. The articles are varied and of an interesting nature; among which may be mentioned,“How we live in New York —the charities of a great city,” by Jennie June; “Two sides of the Question;’’“The Diamoud Pendent,” and tlie admirable serial “The Shores of Nothing.’’ The various departments contain much that is useful, and tlie il lustrations add considerably to tlie in t crest "of the magazine. Tlie frontispiece of this number is a beautiful engrav ing , “A Farewell Token. O ut m Arizona, Hon. A. W. Sheldon, Associate Jus tice, Supreme Bench of Arizona Terri tory, writes as follows: “It affords me great pleasure (osay, from my personal observation, and you know the scope of such lias been very extended, that St. J acobs Oil is the great and wonder ful conqueror of pain, the sovereign cure for all bodily aches and pains, and I cheerfully bear this testimony.” (Pike Superior Court.

It now appears that the dynamite fiend is prospering on American soil, Recently an attempt to blow up simul taneously three of the most important railroad stations in London, glnvesti gation shows that tlie plot originated in America. The English press are clamorous for action on the part of our government in regard to tlie matter. There are reports of a call for a con vention to be held consisting of all men in favor of tariff reform, civil service reform, and no more silver coinage !to organize anew Liberal party and nom inate a President and vice President. It will amount to about as much as the other movements to start liberal parties have done. Dll. HOILTS DYSPEPTIC ELIXIR.
