A Sad Death.
The happy home of Prof, and Mrs.
Ware was made sad last week by the
death of their infant daughter, which
occurred at Gibson, Ga. Her re
mains were interred at the residence
of Mr. W. L. Benton on Sunday
evening last. We tender to the grief
stricken father and mother, together
with relatives and friends, our heart
felt condolence in this hour of afflic
Death of an Estimable Lady.
We are pained to chronicle the
death of Mrs. M. E. Sims, which oc
curred at the residence of Mr. W. L.
Benton, on the Bth inst. She was
well known and highly esteemed
throughout this county. Her life was
marked by all who knew her, as ex
emplifying those exalted characteris
tics of a devoted Christian. For
many years she was a member of Old
Union Church, and when the decisive
hour was reached passed away in the
full triumphs of the Christian’s faith.
To the bereaved relatives and friends
we tender our heartfelt sympathies in
this sad affliction.
PUT THE BILL IN MOTION-
A Sood Suggestion (oneerning the Hotel-
It seems to me we are letting the
grandest enterprise ever commenced
jin our town die out. 1 have consult
ed a number of our young men, and
without an exception they all otter to
contribute to the hotel enterprise
liberally, some to the half of their
property. Certainly, with some of
our most enterprising citizens at the
helm, we could steer our hotel
scheme safely to completion.
Suppose we suggest some way by
which we may put the “ball in mo
tion:" First, call a meeting of all the
citizens of Harlem, say Friday, 24th
inst, at 7 o'clock p. m., at the academy
for the purpose of discussing this sub
ject. Certainly no citizen of this
place who has the advancement of
Harlem at heart would refuse to turn
out. Second. Place at the most pub
lic places blank lists for subscriptions.
This is a means by which we could
estimate the financial strength of the
community, I think it useless to
discuss the possibilities of its paying.
That seems to me to be a dead issue.
No business man would doubt that
point who would take the trouble to
go back a few years and see how
many boarders were turned oft' be
cause Harlem could not accommodate
them. I would like to say I am
thoroughly iu sympathy with any
honorable means looking to the
speedy erection of a hotel, so much
so as to “plank down” us much cash
as my means can possibly afford.
A few figures will astonish you how
easy it can be built: 200 giving SIOO
will raise the amount. 0.,e man has
offered to double the largest sub
scription. Another has offered SI,OOO.
Second man doubled aggregates
$3,000. You see 30 men’s shares
have been taken by two men. Call
your meeting and let’s have a hotel.
—Do not put off until to-morrow
that which should be done t-day.
Especially iu matters pertaining to
health procrastination is dangerous.
If your children show symptoms of
worms, rid them of these intolerable
pests by using White’s Cream Vermi
fuge and note the happy effect. The
worms will follow and your child
experience a speedy relief. Your
verdict will be there is no other
remedy like this.
Nervous Debilitated Sufferers-
From early Indiscretions, Excesses,
&c. If you will send me your name
and address, I will send you by return
mail a treatise on the cause and cure
of nervous exhaustion, lost manhood,
loss of memory, dimness of vision, and
all other symptoms arising from self
abuse, overwork or study. Neglect,
causes of insanity and early death.—

The Appling Sunday School has
been reorganized in the court house, i

is the place for it, but if any good
can be accomplished we simply say
roll the old chariot along.

The shaking of the earth seems to
have had a wonderful effect upon the
people generally everywhere. Some
of our most profane swearers have
joined the church and confessed reli

to say. Man’s heart is so apt to cry
unto the Most High when trouble
comes, but when it subsides and all
becomes calm and serene how quick
ly wo forget; but this is something
that should never bo effaced from our
memory, for with just such fear ami
trembling and quaking will we be
hurled from the presence of our God
if we continue iu sin.

your columns to explain how the accident oc
curred, also, to give my reanons, first, fur

Am my little boy Hterling was going down
the street near the residence of Mr.

ticK passing slowly up the Georgia Kailroad,
bevcral of the section hands were behind,
pushing. Htcrling, boy like, not realizing any
danger, fell in with them, also pushing. Tho
men knew tho danger to w-'nehho was exposed,
but they did not warn him, nor did they tell
him to go away. Leaving tho rear of the car
he went round to tho side still pushing and
blowing a whistle. Tho men heard the whistle .
and saw hiw danger, but still they rained no .
voice of warning, i rom the vide ho wont
round to the and putting his bands up on
the cross tics began to pull,walking backward*.
At thin juncture, the section boss, Mr. Alford,
who was Home distance up the track, naw him '
and called to him to get away. This is what
Mr. Alfred says, but Htcrling and two eye
witnesses all declare that Mr. Alfred did not
call to him. If Mr. Alfred did call, the noiee
of the car might have prevented their hearing
him. About thia time tho croHM tiee fell, atrik«
