Brown, attorney for llhe anti-prohibitionists of Atlanta, Iwe learn from a correspondent to the Macon Telegraph has been sued for a S3OO whisky bill. There seems to be no end to in- I traducing bills in the Legislature. llt seems to us that it would be I well to cull a halt and pass or de j feat aomo of them before going I farther. The man who predicted that we were to have a mild winter may have cause to retract and declare he never said it. In proof of which many have killed hogs and are now enjoying the sweet ini-nts. I , Would it not be well for our | farmers to arrange so as to cut I down expenses in every possibh way for another year and not de pend upon the factor for advances on next year's crop before it is made. Such a course in our judg ment would tend largely toward 1 breaking the shackles that now I bind them. Live hard for one | year that you may get your In-ad | above water. - Columbus Enquirer: A “city ' preacher” went to Headland, Ala., i not long since where he preached an excellent sermon. After the sermon one of the church mem bers who has been in he habit of paying lh« preacher fl iemarked to the ditor of the Progress that he would be willing to pay $2 50 if the services of that preacher could be secured. As the church member is only worth aland f25,-i 000, this may In- considered quite • liberal proposition. Rev. Dr. Hawthorne, in his ser mon at the First Baptist Church iu Atlanta, on last Sabbath, dealt some heavy blows against the theatrical troupe* known as the “Devil’s Auction,’’ which exhibit ed in that city recently Few men attack iniquity with such power as the Doctor, and however one may be disposed to question the pro priety of his course upon certain issues, all are impressed with the irresistible tact, that his words in preaching the gospel and in con demning sin of every grade and •verywhere, are burning words.— The country needs more such men. CAN’T SEE IT. We would like very much to believe as the Atlanta Constitution does that the farmer in Georgia “ia doing well." We suppose our esteemed contemporary draws its inviting picture from the sur roundings ot its immediate section of the State. Drawing our con dusioo from the same stand point (where we live) the picture loses much of its gild. With some rare •Sceptioos, judging from reports generally, farmers are not pros perous. To-day, as they look •poo the exceeding short crop just gathered the prospects are less piontising'and the hard cash i much less in amount than at any time since the close of the war.— i i Our farmers, too, will Im- loath to I accept the conclusions of the Con stitution upon this point, however much they may admire that jour- i nal. Jn thus speaking, we d> so for this section, and not tor the i State in its entirety. I TO LAND OWNERS- Editors Sentinel : 11 Please allow me to make a few , < iemarks on surveying ami land < marks Fl at on suiveying irn-1 presses many people with the idea ' that a surveyor nt the beginning 11 of a line, “by intuition or some art i of magic," can set his compass di rectly to the terminus of such line whatever obstructions may inter- j vene, ami, that he needs no assist- | mice, this is a great mistake. A surveyor needs two assistants ■ to carry the chain, two to carry 1 ( Hags ami one an ax, if the survey- ~ or is not furnished with these as sistants, the employers need not place tort much confidence in his work. All obstructions, bushes, brush. <-tc., should be cleared away, this . is strictly requisite Mr. Flint’s s advice ami my experience diverge widely. Many times 1 have had to carry one end of the chain, and oc I casionally an ax and chop the line, ! clear away any obstructions to my progress, etc. ]~ • • However, the principal purpose of this article is to impress upon the minds of the people the im portance ot permanent land marks. W hen land lines are pcrm inent ly and correctly established land | corners should be represented by mounds made by digging ditches upon lines leading each way from corner and throwing dirt exactly upon corner thus making a con- I 1 I sideraiile mound, thence along the I lines ut intervals of ten chains Ismail ditches should be dug exact ly upon line, say 4 feet long, two wide and deep throwing the dirt along the line in front, leave vn enney of 4 feet upon which this dirt has been thrown and proceed I again to dig another ditch throw- | ing the dirt back upon said vacan- ■ 'ey thus constituting a considerable j mound, so on along the lines en- j tire, such marked lines would ' remain land mai ks for many years and adjoining land owners would not find it difficult to trace their | lines, even without the assistance 1 of a surveyor for in all probability ; most people’s experience is that surveyor services are most gener ally dearly purchased Now, Messrs. Editors, 1 have hail my say ; indulge no suspicion that this is an advertisement. 1 deny seeking work, desire retire- i meiit rather than employment.— 1 Still, there is more importance attached to this subject than many imagine.
