A Queer Case of Oversight.
A strange case of carelessness, and one that
lias occasioned considerable uneasiness of mind
was that w liieh came to the notice of Tits: Post
today. A lady who had sold a lot a few days
ago deposited 8100 of the receipts in a bureau
drawer. Shortly afterwards, she was absent
from home fora few days and left the money
under lock mid key where she had deposited
it in her room. Upon her return she unlocked
the drawer, and was surprised to find the
money gone 1 She says that she searched care
fully through the drawer and found that the
money, and, what was strange, nothing but
the money, was missing. She could place a
suspicion of tlie theft upon no one, ami had
given the money up for lost. A friend, whom
site hail informed of her loss, told the ciretim
staance to Captain Connolly, and asked him to
take some steps towardsits recovery. Captain
Connolly called upon the lady and, to prevent
all mistakes, requested to be allowed to look
through the bureau in person. He lifted up
two or three articles in his search and there in
plain sight lay the SIOO.
How the Sabbath is Spent in Atlanta.
Beside the regular church services,
one of the most noticeable features of
theSabbatb day exercises is that of the
temperance meetings held in Good
Templar’s Hall, corner of Whitehall
and Hunter streets, under the auspi
ces of Wenona Temple Cold Water
At these meetings the children
conduct the meetings entirely; the
objects are to'train up the children to
temperance. The pledge is not to use
alcoholic liquors as a beverage, nor to
use tobacco or profanity. There is
no computing the amount of good
this society has accomplished in our
city. The writer has the names of
over fifty boys who took the pledge
in this temple, now, although grown
to be nicil, declare they have never
violated their obligations. A very
large proportion of these same young
men are now in positions of trust and i
responsibility in our city.
Wenona Temple and its manage
ment should have the approval and
hearty support of all good Christian •
men and women.
To-morrow the Temple will have i
unusual attractions. Among other no
tables that will be present to aid in
making the meeting interesting will
be Mrs. L. M. Clarke,of Newnan, Ga.,
a lady of tine culture and rare abilities
as an elocutionist and reader. Meet
ings are alway open to the friends of
Temperance . and strangers, at two
o’clock and continue one hour.

A Rare F< ast of Music.
Atlanta’s appreciation of first-class
musical talent is attracting thither a
list M fine musical companies. We
‘will soon be entertained again by one
of the finest companies in the world.
It consists of Mrs. J. L, Robinson,
whose musical talent is well-known
to our citizens,Mr. Edouard Remenyi,
the celebrated Hungarian violinist,
conceded by many to be the finest in
the world; they will also be accompa
nied by Mr. P. Ducklur, pianist, and
Mr. William Courtney, the famous
English tenor. The company is now
I negotiating with Mr. DeGive for dates.
A New Store fob Family and Fancy
In the handsome new building erected
by Trayuham, Geiss & Co., on Decatur
1 street, there are three handsome store
rooms. One ol these has just been oc
cupied by Mr. Elam Johnson, a gentle
man who has moved here with his fam
ily from Southwest Georgia, who was
attracted to Atlanta by its pul lie schools.
■ Atlanta thus gains another most valuable
citizen through the inilneuee oi her
splendid public school system.
Mr. Johnson goes at once into business,
being eminently amm ot business. He
has opened a first-class store, as staled,
and keeps ill it aline stock of fancy and
family groceries. He will m ike a spe
cialty of Southwest Georgia produce,
keeping the genuine Georgia sugar cane
and syrup always on hand; but he will
furnish the people with everything they
want in his line. He will also do a
commission business, which he finds
necessary from consignments alreadj’
received. See his unique monogram
advertisement elsewhere, which is like
wise printed upon bis window with the
picture of a negro boy seated on a bench
just ’‘going" for Georgia ’lasses.

Wholesale Fancy Goods and No
Messrs. Norris, Redwine & Co. .
This firm has been for many years
well and favorably known in commer
cial circles throughout several of the
Southern States from their connection
with an old and honored wholesale
dry goods and nothin house; in fact,
in every city, town, village or hamlet
iu the States of North Carolina, South
Carolina, Georgia and Alabama they
are well known to the tiade. Last
September they decided, however,
upon a new departure on their own
account, and established themselves
in the wholesale fancy goodsand no
tion business, and we are pleased to
note the venture has proved a grati
fying success; from the start up to
the present time business increased
rapidly. All, we presume, imagine
they could name the articles include 1
in a stock of goods under the above
heading; we individually were con
ceited enough to think so, but not
since our inspection of the magnificent
assortment of goods displayed by this
firm at HA N. Pryor street (second
floor). On the back of their business
cards is printed a list ot over 100
of the leading specialties for the con
venience of their customers; yet this
does not include the one-tenth por
tion. There is no ether business re
quiring more care and judgment in
making selections of stock, but from
first to last it is very evident that the
gentlemen composing the firm are
thoroughly posted, for nowhere in the
South can be found a more choice
line of goods, embracing actually
everything known under the heading
of fancy goods and notions. This im
portant point alone would insure the
success of any, yet, being combined
as it is with the honorable dealings of
the firm, which is a characle:islie
feature, and the fact that they are ex
clusive ca«h buyers, we can readily
see where in lies the secret of pros
perity. All well know the great ad
vantages derived by the latter system
oi doing business —their large and
rapidly increasing trade is convincing
evidence that the dealers generally ap
preciate the efforts of the house to
•supply first class goods at popular
prices. Their spring stock is now be
ing received, ami the attention of mer
chants generally is directed to it. We,
as a disinterested party, take pleasure
in saying that as to variety, extent
ami quality, none in the city surpasses
it, and a visit of inspection by those
contemplating purchase will repay.
The members of the firm, Messrs.
R. 11. Norris, L. A. Redwine and C.
P. Shartnan, are all honored and popu
lar citizens who stand high in both
social aud financial circles, and to con
clude, our sincere wish is that in fu
ture trade editions we may have the
pleasure of recording the fact of their
progress onward and upward.

" zhiml Springs Hygienic Institute, begs
leave to announce to the citizens of Atlanta
and adjoining country, that owing to the inac
cessibility of the former location, his Institute
has liven removed, and is now permanently
established in this city, where easy access,
greater facilities, ami superior a'commo
dations than have ever before been offered by a
, Health Institute South, are now extended to
• invalids from all parts of the country. We
i confidently claim to have the leadi.* :; Southern
I Hygiean Home, and the only Health Institute
; South superintended by leguhiriy qualified
I Hygienic Physicians.
Among the various diseases successfully
, treated nt this institution, are Rheumatism,
, Neuralgia, Dyspepsia, Heart Disease, Diseases
I Peculiar to the Reproductive Organs, Const!-
• pation and Piles. Paralysis, Incipient Consump
j lion, Kidney Diseases, including Diabetes and
[Albuminuria; Diseases of the Bladder and
[ Prostrate Gland; Erysipelas, and all kinds of
j Diseases of the Skin. Liver. Spleen, Stomach
aud Bowels; Nervous Debility, Physical Ex
haustion. etc., etc. All of which are scien
tifically and successfully treated with Hygien
ic Agencies alone, no inorganic drug nostrums
being used in any form. Thousands of per
sons afflicted with diseases engendered by
wrong habits, local causes and surroundings,
die yearly by wrong me<lical treatment. Le
ia use drug remedies are themselves causes of
disease. If they cure one disease, it is only by
producing a different drug disease; and as
each and every dose diminishes the vitality of
the patient, it’will at once be seen how potent
for evil and suicidal it is for persons thus to
poison their systems and taint their blood with
drug medicines, simply because they are sick.
A far better and mure rational process for
treating and restoring sick people to health is
now presented to the people of this section—a
system of treating diseases more in accord with
nature, science?and civilization than the old
erroneous and at present prevalent quack, lo
tion powder and pill system, which originated
among the heathen and ignorant nations of
three thousand years ago.
Patients in the city, or at a distance, visited
and treated when practicable at their homes.
