Prof. Bailey, in Ins $rief valedictory
remarks, explained thef cause of his re
tirement; ami stated sthat-be knew of
no better opening in the ; State for the

The Walking Woman in Atlanta! -
The Atlanta Constitution has quite
an extended accouut of the arrival in
that city at 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon
of Mrs, Potts, the walking woman. The
crowd began to gather about 1 o'clock.
About 2 o'clock somebody said "yonder
she-comes," and the crowd began to
rush down the track and crowd around
a slight figure which appeared modestly
to avoid the eager gaze of the crowd.
It was soon discovered that this was a
cruel ruse, A lovejj of practical jokes
had dressed up a well-known ' young
man. of . small stature and effeminate
features, and thus made cruel sport of
the boys, The crowd felt greened and
went back to await in the shade the ar
rival of the genuine Mrs. Potts. Hour
after hour went by and still she did not
appear, At last it was learned that she
would oe there at a o clock, xne crowd
felt inspired' and Waited in patience.
As the hour drew nigh fully fifty per
sons went out as far as Ponce de Leon
to meet the lady while three gentlemen
began to enjoy her society six miles up
the AHvLine, At ten minutes past five
tne crowd: in tne depot cheered. The
veritable; Mrs. Potts brad appeared. . She
came up the track tn a trot, which look
