The alaeird statement which have
been nent foi th to the world n« regard*
the condition of our working pe<>pb
have lam fully and el<*lly l> luted
by men if undoubted veracity, mi l
Mquire no further notice. The only
real.vital question which I'OHceriiH th'
operative* of onr mill* i* thia: Ai<
tliu mill owner* in a condition to
iucreiute the conipciiaati >u now paid
for labor ?
The acbcmes which have from firm
to time Im-cii tiied to form co opera
five aa*H iationa, in which employe
should aharc the profit*, have nlmimt
invariably proved failure*, but thin
ahould not deter practical men from
trying anything which give* the least
Jiowuhle chance of aolving tin* vexed
aod'menaeibg ijueation of the righ *
of capital and labor. Suppose oui
mil) Proaidenta and their Board of
Directora resolve after paying all run
ning expeiiHcx, putting to credit of
profit and lon* a reasonable per cent
for deterioration of plant and a fail
dividend, will divide at the end of the
year any surplus among the operator*
in proportion to the amount earned
by them during the year. By this ar
rangement the employe* run no risk
but have every posaibls incentive to
lie industrious, waving and attentive
to hi* buaineaw. He must, however,
submit the conduct of the busines*
entirely to the owner*of the property,
trusting implicitly to the honesty and
integrity of the manager*.
Let those intcrcKto 1 carefully con
wider this crude suggestion mnl it
there is any good in it lot it be

• tor* Constitution: In looking over the
Central Georgian, of September the
Utli, 1803, 1 find the following curd
which you will oblige an “ole vet" by
inserting it in the CoiiHtitulion. I
wa* not in the Hama brigade with this
.adjutant but have known him all my
life, and was with him in many
bloody battle fields in Virginia and
ciui way with truth that there wim
never a truer nor braver soldier than
this name adjutant who is now an
avowed Gordon man. And I can
heartily indorse n remark made by
him a few day* wince, that: "It *<>ems
to be folly for a man to try to be
anybody, when such men uh John B
Gordon arejto l*> maligned, traduced
and pulled down in such a manner ns
is being done in this campaign, ami
make* me think that there is much
truth in the old adage that republic*
are ungrateful ’’
Neither wa* the writer in Gordon’s
command, but saw too much of him
during the four year* that tried men’s
* uls to go back on him now. Well
do 1 remember the battle of Cedar
creek in the valley of Virginia, when
ho took bi* command by a circuitous
route mid all night march to attack
the enemy in the rear at day brea'i,
when General Early (whoso command
the writer was nt the time), was to
attack in front at the first sound of
Gordond s guns latter in the day
when the right of Early's and left of
Gordon’s joined on the field of c.umigi
there I met one of hia infantry cap
tains ;from Washington county who
had rapt med a piec« of the enemy's
artilery, and had turned it upon them
and was loading and firing it himself
with great affect, and we shook hands
acroes the gun. It was the first time
we had met during the war. There
too, and during the whole day, when
ever the fight was the thickest or the
most < neouragem-1 • needed, could
be «ocn the ra’lnnt <I r ' an 1 «’>> n
by overwhelming num!era we were
forced to retire, and the enemy’*
cavalry bad flanked uh, cut down our :
wagons, blocked the road in our roar. ,
cut of!’our retreat, and it ueerned that
hi* little army, worn and exhausted, J
and w'wttered, from marching all
night ami fighting all day, were al- '
most ready to givo up, he gathered
tin in together, took them from the
in tin rood, waded the Shenandoah
uver and landed them safe on Fisher’s |
Hill at midnight He stayed with ,
his men, ami never *hall I forget hi* 1
kind word* of encouragement in that
hour of trial, and shall love him is
Img n* life shall last. Tell mo that
b can e th'! war is over that we should
fol ;i t hiich men as Gordon and vote
for an adjutant, who, a* Dr. Miller
iy*. ‘‘flung up hi* commission to ac
cept a bomb proof." God forbid.

An Inridrnl on Hug Mountain
Gwinnett Herald: A rather amus
ing incident occured recently in Hog
mountain district A gentleman who
is in the habit of walking in his sleep
had a dream. Ho dreamed that he

along toward an old house and then
go in. Thinking this a good opjxir
tunity to capture them, be quietly
slipped along until he got to the door,
when lie suddenly jumped inside and
closed the door. What was his as
tonishment to discover a mad dog in
tl e - e, which nuhod nt him nt once.
II s only chance of escape was to
jump through the window, and
through be went with a bound. When
he awoke ho was lying outside of the
house on the ground, having jumped
through n window in his liedroom
and carried the sash with him. He
was badly bruised and biskg severly
cut by the glass ns lie broke through.
