There is some comfort in that

saw the old devil and the infer

hundreds of his old acquaint
ances, and when lie waked up
tewa-alli:i a sweat of per
spiration and was so thankful
it was a dream. He told it to
the boys and one said, "was the
fire oi common hot, Uncle Jake."
'T'oweitul hot," -raid he, "but
then it wan't so hot as it uuout
Lave been; for every white man
I saw had a nigger between
Liin and the Ere."
So 1 reckon he had better be
pin to import a good lot oi our
Northern brethern and put
them in front about next April
ai:d tell the administration to
fire svrsv. Our Southern Re-
r publicans will do pretty well,
put tu-re are not enough of

there will be lots of Michiga ri

added four hundred and ninety
thousand dollars to the taxable

two year-. In two years we
have built a town of nearly :!,

double it in Uo years more;
and now we are g,,h,g build
another town at I'.luii'ton, ten
miles below Cave Spring,
there is the plan and elevation
Jt the. hotel, which to cost

ihc comiorts he left behind j
fcim, he gets disgusted and'
wants U, e-et away as quick as1
pus-ible. If you Cartersvillej

would build a twenty thousand;
d oilar hotel the first thing, and!
iiavfe In t and cold baths and

'Jp that front block, and paint
that oid depot and make the
ovn look attractive. Wre will
have a bigger town at Blull'ton
.11 two years than you Lave got
at Carters ii lie, and three
fourths of the people will be
live yankees that meau busi
ness. You have got the best
county in Georgia I have been
all over it and know all about
it and your natural wealth is
just immense. There is noili
ing like it or equal to it that I
have seen in all my travels, but
your people are asleep ; you
don't advertise ; the northern
people don't know anything
about you ; you have spent
three or four hundred dollars
on printers ink and think you
have done wonder?. We spent
seventy-live thousand in adver
tising the first year in Talla
poosa, seventy -five thousand
dollars in cash, aud we got five
dollars back for everyone we
put out. Old Zack (..'handler
when lie was governor of Michi
gan got the Legislature to ap--propriate
two hundred thous
and dollars for printers ink for
advertising the State, and the
result was an increase of four
hundred thousand in her popu
latiou in four years by immi
gration and eighteen millious
in the value of her property. It
takes the people to make a town,
and if you don't call them they
won't come. If you get halt' a
dozen live yankees to locate in
your town and hire them to go
back and drum for you, and
furnish them with half a mil
lion little pamphlets, with some
pictures in them and plenty of
information about your county,

road lines and arrange for ex
cursion rates to Cartersville and

people who would come.
"My friend," said I. "you
alarm me. Your picture is
beautiful, very beautiful, but"
"T.ut what?" said he. -'Well I

that maybe too many would
come and crowd us out. ou
see we are raising rignt smart
children ourselves and we want
your clever Xorth?rn friends to
come down and mix up and in

want a freshet. Let's sorter
divide this thing about half and
half. We haven't got any sev
enty-five thousand dollars but
if we kiii w that a tl-usaud dol

would double our population
and set a thousand little weeel
in motion and that your people
when tny come would pay us
back what we spent in calling
them to this paradise, I think
we could raised the money. i
think they ought to pay it back,
don't you? Why the north
ern people are filling up Texas
so fast that the State has quit
calling and some of the town,
ships require an immigrant to
bring his credentials of good
character with him just like
they require a health certifi
cate when the yellow fever is
around. In some towns a man
has to make an application for
naturalization papers and they
vote on it, and it he is black
balled, he mu.-t travel further.
They say they want to preserve
the purity of their politics and
their religion. Hut we are not
that particular here in Carters

we will tote fair pnd divide.
We had a big town meeting the

Hi i.i. A nr.
A very serious cutting affair
took place on the Nashville
road, about five miles from
Louisburg, on Saturday even
ing last, m which a negro by
the name of J. X. 1 logwood was
cut in the neck with a knife, by
a white man named Alex Stal
lings. The negro it was rumor
ed, wi s one of "Eaves' reliables"
i on election day, and used some
insulting language to Mr. Stal
lings when he went up to vote.
Not desiring t: have a fuss at
the polls, Stal lings promised to
settle the matter at some fu
ture time, aud it seems that the
first opportunity presented was
last Saturday evening about
daylight down when the two
men met. The wounds were
dressed by Dr. J. E. Malone,
who happened along the road
shortly after the cutting took
place. A warrant for th arrest
of Stallings was issued, but up
to this writing he has not been
captured. Franklin Times.

A stifling room in a crowded

Suddenly he looks up, and smiles
to greet the child. In a moment
she springs to his side, and nestles
in his arms.

The arms foldiug her drop

All this delivered without draw

lie emphasized the name bitter
ly, as if contrasting his own biting
poverty with the lavish geiieio.-ity
of his proposed hostess; but Dottie
slid down from his lap, and trotted
contentedly after Mrs. Wilkius to
a little oeuroom aojounu me
shabby sitting-room. j
The trip in the boat was a de-
light to her, in spite of her fathei's
grave fa.ee, and her little feet fairly
danced as they crossed the plank
that led directly to the picnic grove.
The afternoon was nearly over,
when LJenry Dent, sitting at the
very edge of the grove, overlooking
the stately house where Miss
Marchmont lived, saw a lady and
gentleman coming slowly down the
path leading to the grove. He
drew back hastily out of sight, and
watched them. Dottie, iu his arms,
listening to a new fairy story,
wondered why he made so long a
pause, but was too tired to remon
She followed the direction of her
father's eyes, and saw a tall, hand
some gentleman, of some forty
years, escorting a slender, graceful
lady of perhaps twenty-two or
"Lut please, papa," said Dottie,
presently, as the couple disap
peared in one of the grove paths,
"tell me the rest. The prince lovnl
the beggar girl, and wouldn't
marry the princess. I thought the
prince always married the princess
in the fairy stories."'
"This prince did not," said her
father, "though the king, his fath
er, threatened to turn him away
from his kingdom."
"And did he marry the beggar
"Yes, and his father turned him
awaj, and he worked hard, as men
must do who aie turned away from
their kingdom, and he tried to
make the beggar maid happy. She
lived a few years with the prince,
and she gave him a tiny child to
lose, and then, when the child was
only three years old. she died.
Aud then the priuce worked on
aud on for the little child, uu'.il one
day one lovely summer day, from
afar off he saw the princess."
"The one his father wanted him
to marry J"
"The same one. Aud when he
saw her, he knew that he loved
"Oil, bow nice !" cried Dottie.
"Did he marry her then ?"
But before the answer could be
given, there came a clap of thunder
and 4 scutrying of mauy feet.
"Miss Jlarchmout says we are
all to go iuto the house,7' some one
cried, as the children and their
guardians hurried by Ileury Dent
and his child.
"Come, papa," Dottie urged ;
"we will get wet."
He rose heavily, suffering her to
lead him to the stately house,
where already the wide hall was
crowded with laughing, merry chil
dren. He was dizzy with louir
coutinued work, poor fare, deep
emotion, and, scarcely knowing
what he did, staggered into a
small room leading from the hall,
and quietly fainted away.
"How long ago was it," lie
wondered, "since he came to Miss
Maichmout's picnic?" A gentle
voice near him said .

Mr. Cleveland's last annual

knows, or is likely to know
until the document is rea l at
the Capitol Monday. Tho mem
bers of the cabinet will only
say that it is a very :-trong and
interesting document, and that
it will be well worthy of u
place along with the other
state papers which Mr. Cleve
land has written. Speaking of
this message reminds me that
Mr. Cleveland has been
ticularly fortunate in never
having had any "leaks" iu his
administration through which
public documents, sifh as
presidential messages, have
reached the public premature
ly. His is the first administra
tion for many years entirely
free of these "leaks."
On the eve of the fir.-t Thanks

Whitney took charge of the
Navy Department, he inaugur
ated the pretty custom of pre
senting each one of the four
hundred employees of that de
partment with a big fat turkey.
The custom ha been regularly
kept up ever since, and last

Relieving in the old adage
that "the early bird catches the

of Illinois has opened head
quarters here and began an ac

of the next House oi Represen
tatives. Messrs. Lutterworth,
McKinley, Rnrrow--, Reed and
company, will however make
the fight interesting as soon as
they get here, It is generally
thought that either Reed or
McKiney will be Speaker.
Democratic members of Con
gress are as a nil i extremely
reticent as to what line of pol
icy they will adopt at the com
ing session of Congress; tfiey
nearly all express a desire to
confer with their Democratic
colleagues before committing
themselves. An exception to
this rule is Representative
hpriuger, of Illinois. He insists
that one of the first things the
House will do will be to pass
his Oklahoma bill, and that the.
next thing will be to pass a bili

The clerks in the government
departments iu this city below
the grade of chief are all in an
easy state of mind just at pres
ent. They have become con
vinced that Harrison is a
genuine civil service reformer,
and that there will be no clean
syveep when he comes in. The
principal cause of this belief
was an article in our local
papers, taken from the editorial
columns of the Indianapolis
Journal, a paper which is
thought to bo Harrison's Home
organ, which warned the Re
publicans not to expect a ' clean
sweep." '1 here may not be a
clean sweep, but in my opinion
at the close of Harrison's term
there will not be one Democrat
in office here for each ten Re
publicans now drawing Uncle
Sam's pay. Iu

Harrison's Southern policy
continues to be a subject of
general discussion here. The
opinion is almost unanimous
among the members of botii
parties, that Harrison's ad
ministration will be a very
conservative one unless some
thing noyv entirely unexpected
should occur. I don't think the
South has anything to fear at
the hands of Harrison. If mauy
things that now have a some
what troublesome look are let
severely alone, they will adjust
themselves ; chief among this
class of things is the negro
question. I am certain from in
formation derived from Re
publican sources, that Harrison
will appoint no negro to any
prominent Federal office iu the
South. In fact there is an un
doubted disposition among Re-
puoiieaiis to relegate the negro
t ) back seats in fnt.nr. II, i, i
no longer of any piactical use
to that party, therefore they
will give him nothing.

day it is doubtful whether
either House will have a

come in much faster to-morrow
There is a growing belief
that Harrison will call an extra

The Management of the Na

December Oth, as "North Caro
lina Day." They have extended
ai1 invitation to all the people
of our State to visit their City
at that time, that they may see
ti e Wonderful Exposition of
Southern Industries and North
ern Machinery that have been
concentrated in the immense
L'n tiding they have erected,
aiid at the same time i that the
people of the Tyro States may
m.-et socially, and confer to--i
Jier upon questions of vital
mteiest to all. From all we
hr,v3 been able to gather from
our exchanges, we nave come
to the conclusion that the
Exposition at Augusta covers
a large area of industries, and
shows better what the whole
if uth is doing, and what it will
br' able to do in the future
than any heretofore held. We
le-rii also that the different
R.Tlroad Companies have made
sch liberal arrangements for
special days as will enable
everyone of our readers to visit
Augusta at a lower cost than
they.could ever have done in
pa st, or that there is any proba

are gratifies to know that the
Management has ioviUd Sena
tors Vance and Ranson, Hon.
Alfred M. Waddell, and other
distinguished citizens to go to
Augusta at hat time and to
i -ddress the throngs assembled
there. We hope that every one

What that Popkar Frca;her Says.
It is a mighty little man that
is always picturing himself
There is no remedy for bor
rowed trouble but good hard
Home-made troubles are like
home-made shoes and ieans :
they never wear out.
I like a fellow that gets
where the devil will clear the
track. That fellow means busi
ness. You can argue down a theory,
but when a fellow strikes a
fact, you can't go 'round It,
over it, under it, or through it ;
yon stop right there.
I like to fight the devil. I
walk ' right up and shake my
fist in his face and say : "Try
me, old fellow, and let that poor
fellow alone down there.
Among the rich there are
many wicked abominations;
but among the poor are some
of the sweetest virtues.
If I had a clerk and he dealt
in lottery tickets, I'd turn him
off. I would be afraid if he lost
in the lottery he would win on
A fellow that don't live right
is in poor shape for prayiny in
Homepathic preaching! If I
had a canary bird I'd give him
more medicine than some of
these homopathic preachers do
I believe in kill or cure.
A man is just as strong as the
thing he gives himself to.
Sometimes you don't get
what you pray for; but the
Lord gives you what you ought
You can't get along without
three good, hoaest prayers a
A fellow that don't live right
in his family caivt pray in hia
Talk good about your neigh
bors. Brag on a fellow to keep
the devil from bragging on you.
It ain't what you've got, but
what sort of a fellow it Is got
"Hca (ht Your Sow."
One day a lazv farmer bov
W as hoeing out the corn.
And moodily had listened long
To hear tbe dinner horn.
The welcome blast was heard at
And down he dropped his hoe ;
But the good man shouted ii his
"My boy, hoe ont your row !"
Although a "hard one" yvas the row,
To nse a Dlow man's phrase,
And the lad, as the sailors have it,
Beginning well, to haze '
'I can," said he, and manfully
He seized again his hoe ;
And the good man smiled to see
The boy hoe out his row.
The text the lad remembered,
Aud proved the moral well,
That perseverance to the i .id
At last will nobly tell.
Take courage, man ! resolve ou can,
And strike a vigorous b... v :
In life's great field of varied toil
Always boa out your row.
