Examination of the laws passed by
the last Legislature" shows that the
issue of bonds by counties and towns
was authorized to the amount of three,
and a quarter million dollars.
It is expected that work oil" jthe new
Presbyterian - Church, which is to re

Church, will bejin within the next

As soon as the Penitentiary case is
decided the Governor will calla meet
ing of his Council and recommend the
loan, from the State Treasury, of the
$6,000 which the Legislature failed, by
an oversight, to appropriate for the
support of the criminal insane. It is
very likely that the Governors recom

The A. & At. College.
i. Th members of the committee on
reorganization, appointed by the trus
tees of the A. &M. College at their
recent meeting, are how making in
quiries and investigations into the
work and management of the college,
with a view to ascertaining what
changes in the faculty should be made.
It Js expected that a meeting of the
committee will be held next week.
A report will be submitted to a full
meeting of the board in June. ;
(Until they do meet and take aome
action it is impossible to say just what
changes will be made. ' It seems to be
thriplan now, however, to request the
resignation of Mr. F. E. Emory, the
professor of agriculture, and elect Mr.
W. F. Massey, the present professor
of botany ana horticulture, as pro
fessor of sericulture and horticulture.
In such event a new professor will be
chosen for the chair of biology and
botany. Such an arrangement has the
merit of combining the theoretical
work under one man, and the practi
cal work under another.
It is said that' Mr. W. J. Peele,- of
this city, is a candidate for bursar of
the college, the position now held by
Mr. sutler. ! '
has been anything but a grand suc
cess, it will be remembered that soon
after appointmenfhe got things into a
tangle and it took a special committee
some time to straighten them out.
Recently, when the college wanted a
statement of its r finances, for a report
to the Legislature, it found a similar
state of affairs existing. Again special
help was called in and it took-the com
mittee three weeks to bring order out
of chads. Finally, when the com
mittee did succeed in hnding
out something about the financial
condition of the college they
discovered that some departments had
not spent their allowance, while others
had been permitted to go away over
theirs. Because of this the trustees,
at their recent meeting, passed a reso-
ution to the effect that no professor
shall spend more than the amount al-
owed by the trustees for his depart
ment. In case he does so he shall re
place the excess with his own salary.
For some reason this resolution was
never given out for publication.

the reorganization committee is the

Wells, Bichardson & Co. : I feel constrained, owing to the benefits I have
derived from your incomparable remedy, Paine's celery compound, to write
and tell you in what manner I have been benefited by it. As you are doubt

that perfect condition or form depends much, on the condition of jus
stomach. I feel, and know by experience that Paine's celery compound is
the ideal remedy for that purpose, as it not only strengthens the nervous sys
tem, which is so essential to good health, but we find that it regulates the en
tire system, and renders it in a condition to withstand eithergreat mental
strain or physical exertion. I stand, at present, at the head of the list of the
