ATLANTA, GA., NOV 27,1880.
The people of Atlanta will’next Wednes
day decide the question of the mayoralty,
and vote into that position one of two men,
English or Kimball. We have elsewhere
shown that Kimball has no claims
to the position on account of his financial
ability, special qualifications or past suc
cess, for the excellent reason that his suc
cess has been altogether in the line of fail
ures, and his election would endanger the
financial prosperity of Atlanta. Let us
now discuss the matter from another stand
Kimball is looked upon by the people as
one of the men who oppressed them in the
days of radicalism, and so odious has
been his name whether justly or unjustly
that an enemy of Atlanta, when he wished
to cast approbrium upon it, could think of
no better way than calling it “Kimball
ville.” Is it policy, is it calculated to bene
fit the city, to elect mayor a man
stands in the eyes ot the people? Il is not.
It will tend to injure the reputation of the
city, to keep away capital, and to lessen
the influx of new citizens. Moreover, At
lanta is the Capital of the State, and as such
the people of Georgia have a special inter
est in it, and their feelings and wishes should
have some respect. A strange sight it
would be indeed, to see Kimball, H. I.
Kimball the Mayor of the Capital of Geor
gia, and that by the free suffrages of its
people. Can it be? Is there a solid citi
zen, merchant or merchanic, who will vote
t.o fasten the name of Kimballviile upon the
city among the indignant people of our
State? We cannot believe it till we see
We therefore counsel every citizen to go
to the polls and vote for Capt. English. He
has ability for the office, is an old citizen, a
man whose time and means have been free
ly given to many of Atlanta’s great enter
prises, and a safe man in whom to trust the
city's future and our charter.
Who Shall be Mayor?
This is a question of profound interest to
every citizen of Atlanta, rich and poor,
high and low. It not only affects the gen
eral prosperity, but likewise tlJ> individual
welfare and- pecuniary condition of every
man, whatever his occupation. It is, iher e
fore, the duty of every citizen to vote and
to vole right. He owes it to himself, to his
family, and to his neighbor; and he owes it
to the people of his State. To vote right
it is necessary to think right, and to think
right a man must examine carefully all the
bearings and issues dependent upon the re
sult. No man that will do this, calmly and
without prejudice, can vole for 11. I. Kim
It is needless to refer to his history. It
is too well known. To sp?ud money is a
mania with him. As the mayor of the city
of Atlanta, he can do no more than others,
unless he can get the money. It may be
said that the charter will prevent him
from passing a certain limit.
A grand thing is ’.hat charter. It has been
Atlanta's salvation and one of the main
springs of her prosperity. It stopped the
indiscriminate appropriation of past years,
which was rapidly accumulating a debt ne
cessitating the increase of taxes, oppressing
the citizen and especially the poor, and
crippling the prosperity of the city if not
bankrupting it as is the case of so many
cities since the war. But docs any man.
who knows the history of Kimball, believe
that charters can stop him? Will he not
invent expedients to evade it, or plausible
excuses'from time to time for thi innova
tion and that, for this amendment and that,
till the charter will scarcely be a straw in
his way ? Has he not in the past shown
himself a master in the ait ot commanding
an immense amount of funds, and how
long will it be before upon some pretext
he will be instrumental in saddling the city
with more bonded debt? Advancing a
step, let every voter ask the question—
What successful enterprise did Kimball
ever accomplish with the money after he
had obtained it? He has failed in every
thing. With hundreds of thousands of dol
lars with which to operate, he has expended
it with almost surprising lack of foresight,
and in numerous instances without any
judgment or common sense. A man who
has time and again been bankrupt is cer
tainly not to be made mayor of a great city
because of his financial ability and enter
prise. Tlte very statement of such a thing
is proof of its absurdity. If you judge
him by the great rule we apply
in the ceneral business of life, test
him by bis past career, the conclusion is
irresistible that he would make a financial
failure as mayor, though he had unusal
funds in bis hands to accomplish something
great, but which he connot have without
violating the charter or evading it.
We hope, therefore, that no citizen will
make so grave a mistake as to east his vote
for Kimball. It would be a vote against
his interest and against his city.
zb member of the Legislature On being
asked about the effect of Kimball’s election j
expressed himself emphatically, that it
would be a misfortune to Atlanta and would
be a source of great grief to every friend of
the city throughout the State He said that
he had heard the members of the Legisla
ture discussing it and this was the general

It would not detract from the dignity of an

honorable than going in debt or living as a

“You have conversed with a good

“It is a ridiculous movement,” said
the genial Judge with a smile. “The
idea of commanding the Republican

the Republican party go to pieces and

“The Democrats,” said the Judge,
“oh, they have no prospects before
them —their case is hopeless. They

they displayed no statesmanship, and
their inconsistent policy has caused
the nation to doubt their sincerity.

believes such a road could be built cheaply,

A FEAST OF DEATH '

Knoxville, Tenn., Nov. 24. —Intelli-
gence has been received of a dreadful case
of poisoning in Roane county. It was at a
wedding feast, and thirty-five persons were
poisoned. Five have died.
The poisoning is supposed to have liap
p -ned in this way: There was arsenic near
where the soda was kept, and the cook,
thinking she was getting soda, sot the
arsenic instead. Right here housekeepers
have a warning which they should heed.
Always put poison where there can be no
possibility of its being used, except tor the
purpose tor which it was obtained. It is
dangerous. By being careless of arsenic a
shadow has been thrown over many hearts
and homes. Some time after the feast the
whole party became sick, and terror reign
ed where mirth and gladness once were
found. About thirty-five were poisoned.
It would be hard to describe
the consternation of the neighborhood
where the poisoning occurred. We did not
ascertain the names of all who were pois
oned. Up to 12 m. Monday five bad died
from the effects. The dead, so far as known
tons, are as follows: Robert Dail, brother
to the bride. Mr. Robert Dail leaves a wife
and children, who depended upon him for
a support. Another was a Miss Lowery,
an orphan and a grand daughter of Rev.
Mr. Lowery, of Kingston. Miss Lowery
was a sweet little girl who was loved by
all her acquaintances. , Another victim
was a Mr. May, of Missouri, who has been
visiting Roane and Knox county relatives
It will be sad news to herald to his family
in Missouri Mr. Gallaher, cf Kingston,
was another who met with an end so un
timely. The name of the fifth who died we
were unable to obtain. Col. Dail, the father
of the bride, was expected to die, but seems
to be recovering.

We understand that last Friday was the
68th birthday aniversary ot President Wad
ley, Esq , ti.e able President of the Central
Railrof d, He celebrated the occasion by
a family reunion at his elegant country
site, near Bolingbroke. It was also the
anniversary of his marriage day.
We trust the distinguished gentleman
may live many more years and gather to
gether a family reunion, with not a mem

May strength of mind and b My be given
him to manage through another decade, the

ICE-WATER IN CROUP.
Dr. Maunsell, a regular physician of Eng
land, gives a report of a case oi croup
treated by him ; and as the treatment is the
simplest aud the best in domestic practice.
I report the ease very much in his own
language, whi'h is freer from medical
tenchnicalit'fi thin most cases published
in medical journals. He was called to
visit a boy, eight years of age, suffering
from croup, or, in medical language, la
ryngo-tracheitis. That is, inflammation of
the larynx and windpipe, with the usual
symptoms of difficult breathing, hoarse,
brazen cough, fever etc.
Tha boy had been to school the day be
fore, though slightly ailing, but had grad
ually become worse. An emetic mixture
of sulphate of zinc and wine of epecac Mai
administered twice at intervals of ten min
utes, until vomiting was produced. A blad
der was then partly filled with iee cold
water and applied to the throat and upper
part of the ehest, being kept well up under
the chin, as the patient reclined ou his
back. The child naturally objected at first
to the cold, but soon became quieter and
fell into a doz >. Tbe respiration which had
been hard and crowing, gradually became
less so; the cough lost somewhat of its
singing or braznsound, and the skin, which
bad been hot and dry, became cool and
moist. The doctor remained two hours
with his patient, and then left, giving in
structions that a large, warm poultice
should be applied for au hour, in place of
the bladder, and then the ice-water to be
again applied, alternating thus each hour
until his return. He concludes his report
in these words: "In about ten hours I
came back and found everything progress
"The child is now well; and I believe the
result might have been very different, at
any ra'e, the chances of recovery much di
minished. had that treatment not been
This. I will add, is without doubt the sim
plest and best treatment for croup in do
-1 rnestie practice. The cold wat r treatment
should ce commenced as soon as the fever,
and should be continued till these symp
tomc subside, as in the case just reported.
If this alone does not bring speedy relief, I
would advise an emetic of alumn instead
of the zinc and ipecac as used by Dr. Maun
sell. A teaspeonful of powdered alum may
be mixed with honey or syrup and given
every ten or fifteen minutes until vomiting
occurs. Tiffs is a very effectual emetic,
and less protracting ‘han the preparations
of ipecac and tartar emetic, or antiomial
wine usually resorted to in such Cases. Tbe
prineiple or theory of using hot and cold
applications alternately is good; but in
put ing it into practice, it will be better to
apply a folded towel or piece of flann-1
wet in hot water, instead of the large,
warm poultice prescribed by Dr. Munsell.
I he towel or flnunel should be doubled in
to three or four folds, put on as hot as it
can be borne, and then covered wiih a thick,
dry towel, or be ter, with a piece of rubber
cloth or oiled silk, s o retain the heat.
This treatment will often effect a cure
before a doctor can be found; and the ad
vantages of the hot towel or flannel over
the warm poultice are cleanliness, conven
ience, economy of time and material, and
the little trouble of changing frequently, so
as to keep up sufficient heat,
A writer says, "What a common ccni
plaint this is! And yet no one seems to
know anything about it. You suffer from
it for years and yet you don’t go to a doc
tor, or if you do you derive very little bene
fit from his advice. Some people suffer
from it at night only, while others are
troubled with it in the .day time as well.”
He then goes on to give his remedies. The
best of which he tells us is hypophosphate
of lime in oue or two grain doses twice a
day. Another good remedy, he says, is five
drops tincture nux vomica three or four
times a day. For paleness and bloodless
ness he recommends cod liver oil, iron and
quinine, with Parrish’s chemical food.
Now people may resort to any or all of.
these things, if they see fit. the remedies as
recommended being harmless, but disap
pointment will often follow all this druggery
as in the doctor’s prescriptions so disparag
ingly spoken of by our writer.
Be it known then, that there is a more
excellent way to remove the trouble of cold
feet.which is not only an annoyance,but an
evidence, a cause, or a consequence of ill
The best remedies for cold feet are not
drugs, but good, nourishing food, exercise
and bathing. The diet should consist of
browu or Graham bread, fresh butter, beef,
mutton, etc., with such vegetables as are
palatable an! suited to the powers of di
gestion. Those containing oil, such as
peas, nuts, etc, are good in such cases if
the stomach can digest them without op
pression. A foot bath should be taken ev
ery morning in cold water, letting the feet
remain in long enough to produce a slight
aching sensation. The feet should be then
well rubbed wilh a coarse, dry, towel, the
shoes and socks or stockings drawn on, and
a brisk walk be taken, or a dance around
ttie room, sias to excite the circulation and
bring about a vigorous reaction. It is on
this reaction tbe good effects of the cold
bath depend, and being a vital action in
stead of a mere artificial imparation of heat
by hot water, the warmth thus generated is
much more peroianeut. If the cold water
atone does not have the desired effect,
which may be the case with persons of very
feeble reaction, then a hot foot bath should
precede the cold, and the former may be
used, or bath the hot and cold, followed by
the evercise, as before directed. This will
be more pleasant and effectual in perma
nently removing the very disagreeable
trouble of cold feet than any or all drugs.
And this is something that should be at
tended to, for habitually cold feet are a fre
quent cause of disease. Death gemrally
, begins at the extremities.
