berating that section her people have
continued at work, until now the busilicss
world is awakening to the. fact
l hat the progress o? the South is enehauting
the attention of capitalists
everywhere. The mountain section
sooth of the Blue Bidge, from North
Carolina across to the Mississippi, is
bound to become the greatest roanufac*
turihg country in the world, and Atlanta
and Birmingham will be cities
with populations of half a million each.
The outlook far cotton manufactures,
freighted as it is with wealth, will be
eclipsed by iron interests which are
truly marvelous. The two brightest
public men in the* South, who appreciate
the full possibilities of the future,
are Senator Brown, of Georgia, and
Senator Jones, of Florida. Southern
lands, both for agricultural and timber
purposes, he considers one of the
safest investments possible. Within
five years Florida will supply the fruit
market for tropical products. Pensacola,
he says, will obtain rank as a seaport
next after New Orleans. Mr.
Gould expressed his determination of
spending his future winters in Florida.
Scarcely a day passes withoatsome
iipw :iitd nnwprfnl illnstrfttion of the
effect* of the dime-novel literature
upou the boys. The story of gangs of
mere striplings engaged in petty pilfering
under the leadership of some embryo
Jesse James is becoming monotonous.
The policemen and the
mothers have their hands full to keep
the rising generation of boys from
going off in a mass and undertaking to
emulate the doubtful deeds of the
heroes of their favorite literature.
While thoughtful people are alarmed
at the growing magnitude of this evil
and the prospect tnat nonest ana weniuformed
men will be exceedingly
scarce in tiie coming generation if not
checked, the means of correcting the
evil are not apparent. The present
laws are entirely inadequate to the
suppression of the poisonous trash, as
the writers are shrewd enongh to
avoid open indecency and blasphemy
in their blood-curdling productions,
aiid these are the only literary crimes
recognized by the statutes. There are
two channels through which at least
something may be done to neutralize a
portion of the evil done by this abominable
trash. Fathers could devote a
little less time to making money and
give it to the supervision of the reading
and society of their boys. Good,
industrious habits and a sound aud
wholesome intelligence form a better
capital thai, money with which to
start a young man in the world, and if
fathers "would tpend a little more time

and companionship of their boys they
would find it to pay better in the long
run than to pile up mouey to leave
THE FEDERAL-GOVEBNMENT AND
The measure now uuder consideration
in the Senate of the United States
for the granting of Federal aid to education,
and generally known as the
"Blair Bill," is now provoking weighty
controversies, not only in the halls
of Congress, but in the newspapers
throughout the country. The bill
merits the attention of -good and intelligent
men all over land, and the heated
discussion upon its provisions and
their bearings upon the political aud
social elevation of the negro will
doubtless result in much good.
The alarming prevalence of illiteracy,
especially in the Southern States
of the Union, is by many honest and
thoughtful men esteemed sufficient excuse
for the appropriation of the
national funds towards the educational
interests of the different States. That
some good might result from such an
n-p .JM>_3?>^- 3^ f^vlkof
a- general character most
necessarily follow the passage of such
a bill, we think equally as well established.
While considering the advisability of
action in the premise^ would it not bewise
and prudent to pause and serious-ly
inquire upon the threshold of th<\
discussion for constitutional authority
in Congress for such legislative action.
The Federal Government is liumed in
its power and authority to the grants
in the National Constitution, and in
the absence of any provision conferring
such power, Congress is without jurisdiction.
Thus the pregnant and significant
inquiry is forced upon us, un-,
der what article, section or clause of
iiKlmmanf dn t)if? r?f
the "Blair Bill" hope for constitution-,
aljustification? Is it under that section
which reads, "Congress shall have]
the power to Jevv and collect taxes,'
duties, imports and excises, to pay the
debts, provide for the common defence
and general welfare of the United
States"-? If such a latitude of interpretation
shall be considered legiti-.
mate, pray where will the almighty,
power of the National Legislature
stop? Certainly no where sljort of a
general, concurrent jurisdiction ' of
everybody and everything and under
all circumstances? Ift under the dragnet
clause, "the general toel/are",
Congress is to find the right and authority
to father the illiteracy of the.
country, and to look after the educa
tional elevation of the masses, why not
under the same sweeping phrase appropriate
funds for the administration
of justice in the several States, assist
!u the erection of State prisons, and in,
fine," co-operate in every way with theState
Governments, in order, , to secure>
tlie peace, prosperity and social order
of the country.
These matters belong exclusively to
.the local governments of fchft various
States, and they wilt certainly be conceded
to be without the pale of Federal
interference. If, then, the "Blair
Bill" is of doubtful constitutionality,
would k not be weH to hesitate long
before.it is made a law, aud its obliga??

The desjred legislation is perhaps
upon a plans with the river and harbor
bills of the past few years, and the
large appropriations for the flood and
epidemic sufferers? The strange po-:
litical conceptions out of which thisclass
of legislation has. arisen, doubts
less gave rise to the sentiment in favor'
of public assistance to the cyclone
sufferers of last, month, and to the
attempted appropriation of $300,000 to
the unfortunate city of New Orleans.

Let the States take care of themselves,
and let individuals do likewise, and

South Carolina it heavily burdened
we admit, and the education of her
masses will demand at her hands, the
most diligent and energetic efforts, but
we believe the legislation in question
is subject to very grave objections.

Work for the Farmers.
Messrs. Editors: Some years since
the organization of Patrons of Husbandry
was commenced and for a fewyears
the Grange was a popular
place for farmers and their wives and
daughters to meet, once a month, and
have a social day, transacting their
routiue of busiuess, and enjoying the
nice picnic prepared for the occasion.
If I remember correctly there were
fifteen Granges organized in the counf?r
f/M* o nr^?lo ?f CAom^ QC if <*11

the farmers wonld connect themselves
with the organization. Bat owing to
the political excitement of '76 (or maybe
the thing began to grow old) the
organization came nearly dying ont
altogether in Fairfield. I believe there
are now only two live Granges iu the
count}', viz., "Feasterville" and
I don't know the condition of Greenbrier
Grange, bnt it was my good fortune
to meet with the Feasterville
Grange at their last meeting, and I
assure you it was a pleasant day to
! those present. The meeting was pretj
ty large, composed of men and wol
eftmo moipniic ?n ntirl
UiCll' OVUUU MtMMVUO *44 v....?
I some too young and pretty to deserve
the title of matron in its usual meaning?some
brothers with grey beards
and some not oat-of their teens. All
seemed to enjoy the meeting aud talked
in earnest about farming and improving
their modes of cultivation by
using labor-saving machinery ana
The Feasterville Grange has always
been not only alive but going ahead
and saving by working for the good of
the farmers by combining in the pnrchase
of supplies. They also make experiments
by working an experimental
farm on a small scale. They take. a
lot of land and put it under the direction
of a committee, and plant some
improved seed, and fertilize with dif
fereut manufactured fertilizers, so as
to test the comparative merits. This
year they have distributed some fine
cotton seed among the members and
will make op one bale of cotton to
send foe exhibit to the World's Exposition
at New Orleans next winter, for
the purpose of showing what the
Feasterville Grange can do?and take
a premium if they deserve it. The
Grange has sent some cotton seed to
Colonel Butler, Commissioner of Agriculture,
for distribution among the
farmers of the State. The membership
seems to be on the increase. I saw
some good men initiated, and heard of
several having come in recently?
some dozen or more. I heard the
l.~v <3 ?Uavi^ am ' vrtolo

members, and from what I saw no
doubt a goodly number of sisters; I
was struck with the grace and deportment
of the officers, both male and
female. Mr. Colvin presides with
ease, and seems to be well acquainted
with his business. The officers at
present are: -i :
M. D. Colvin, Master.
J. B. Propst, Overseer.
D. E. Feaster, Lecturer,
J. R, Feaster, Steward.
A. M. Coleman, Assistant Steward.
L. B. Harris, Chaplain.

H. D. Coleman; Secretary.
Mrs. A. JI. Lewis, Ceres.
Miss E. C. Feaster, Pomona.
Miss M. E. Coleman, Flora.
Miss M. V. Feaster, Lady Assistant
The Feastervillo ueighborhood is
bound to improve in the art of cultivation,
and signs can be gecjj now of the
good that this Grange has done, . I
notice well cultivated fields, goodlooking
hogs, cows?and some of the
fattest horses hitched up In the grove,
where the school-house stands, where
the Grange holds its meetings.
If there were no other signs of prosperity,
I regard the holding out, all
this time, of the regular meetings by
this Grange, when all the neighboring
Granges have died, as evidence that the
farmers who belong to it are in earnest.

Some More Observation! Made by a Ylsi1

Spanish and French settlers, who had
settled in Louisiana before the cession

The Creoles held to the traditions and.
belief of their forefathers and looked
with unfriendly eyes upon all Americans
and regarded these new comers
as interlopers, who were to be held at
arm's length and not admitted in the
inner temple of Creole society. The
Americans endowed'with more energy
than the Creoles soon made their presence
felt, and by pluck and persever-,

Am^riaans very much as we ip fornjer
days treated any Northern man who
came to live among as. He was a very
good fellow to transact business with*
and when one got into a tight place,
and wanted the loan of a few thousands
he was a good man to accommodate
yon if yon conld give good security;
bat then yoa know be wqs not the
kind of man to invite to your house.
Time, however, removed these prejudices
aud social favors were given and
received; there still remains, however,
traces of this old order of things, and
a Creole in speaking of things American
refer to tbem as if he bad been
born and raised in so pie other country.
They have preserved many of the old
habits, and also the language, and one
bears the French very nearly as often
as be bears English spoken.
It had long been a matter of wonder
to me that New Orleans was so
often visited by the yellow fever; but
it is so no longer. New Odeansia
unfortunately situated from a sanitary
point of view. Being built on a very
level snrface, it is of course difficult
to secure the proper drainage for the
rainfall and for the sewerage incident:
to a large city, bat in other respects
sanitary precautions are grossly neg-~
lected, and the only wonder is that it.
is not often visited by the scourge.
Thfi streets receive the deposits of all
refuse matter thrown from the markets,
fruit-stalls and stores, and often j
this is left for a long- time exposed to]
atmospheric action and must necessarily
be a fruitful source of diseases.
In anticipation of the great cotton
exposition, which is to take^ place this
fall, steps are being, takeri'to do all
in the power of man to' prevent an
epidemic this year*" Great preparations
are being inade for- the accommodation
of vSritofg and splendid
opportunities, will-be iNfered to the
different States to make an exhibit of

be made conspicnous by its absence.
We have hitherto been too quiet; we
knew our own merits and thought
everyone else"'would* recognize theiir

for a man to stop and seek for hidden
treasures. Yon must bring them to
the light and praise them np to the
skies if you wish to sell them; Georgia
is spoken of as the "Empire State
of the South,'* and she is so in truth,
bnt she did not attain to this position
dy simply resting on her reputation
for modest merit, bnt sbe. sang her
own praises at the top of her voice
and the world has accepted her at her
own valuation. "The chariest maid

she unmask her beauty io the moon

preach a sermon on tne advantages of
advertising. The people arc very easy
to become enthnsiastie upon any subject
suggested to them, and this exposition
has taken fall possession of their
minds and they have gone zealously to
work to make a grand success of it.
The business details have been entrusted
to a' committee of progressive
business men, who l?ave determined to
conduct it on strictly business principles.
If it is not a success it will not
be due to any hick of energy or care
on their part. Of course they hope
that it will primarily benefit their own
city and State, bnt at the same time it
is a Southern enterprise for the benefit
of the whole South. *
It was ray good fortune to see nearly
every phase of New Orleans life as
well as was possible to see it in ray
very limited time. The people are
tike* all Southerners?warm-hearted
and hospitable. They have their virtues
and likewise their fanlfe, After
seeing one side of the picture one is
apt to agree with Sir Peter Teazle,
that "this is a wicked world/'

leans presents a peculiar sight by gaslight.
All large cities are more or
less wicked, and in certain localities
vice reigns supreme, but New Orleans
surpasses all other cities of the same
size in this respect that I have ever
visited. Avarice iis generally the primary
motive of wickedness, but in the
Crescent City wickedness seems to be
practised aud loved for its own sake.

Jack Tar, just in from a long voyage,

I mentioned the foot of Caiial street
in my last as the most important business
point of the city. Before the
adoption of the electric light this was
one of the njost dangerous portions of
the city after nightf&ll. This was and:
is the great rendezvous of the boathands

enjoys a reputation which is almost
national, at any rate it is said to be the
: best in New Orleans, but judging fropa
the accommodations I estimated that I
paid lour .dollars and a half per day
for style and fifty cents for board and
lodgings. Preferring good board and
lodgings to style I executed a rapid
change of base the next day. For one
visiting the city it is best to rent a
room, which can be done very easily,
and take his meals at a restaurant
There are many excellent ones in New

A FEW WOBDS FBQlt
CAPT. R. W. BONNER,
A WELL-KNOWN CITIZEN OF MACON.
In August, 1881, nearly three years ago,
my.son, who was at that time living at
Clinton, Ga., came over to see me with the
sad intelligence that his wife was in the
last stages of consumption and that her
physician had pronounced her case hopeless.
I went immediately over, and 1 felt
that nothing could be\?k>ne. She was
coughing and spitting incessantly, and at
times would discharge from lungs a
lorno hnintihr /vf nnc nr m?H'i?r-jCOUld not
sleep or retain anything on In i ^fcjn n i\
and was, in fact, in the last stages'oP^Bw
disease. This was about the time yon began
to advertise Brewer's Lung Restorer,
and as my son expressed a desire to give it
fo his' wife, two or three bottles were procured
and with scarcely a vestige of hope
we commenced'giving it to her in small
doses, gradually increasing the quantity
until the prescribed dose was reached. She
began to improve after a few doses and
continued to do so daily, until she was
finally restored to life and health, aud is
to-day perhaps in better health than ever
before. She is subject to colds, but a few
swallows of Brewer's Lung Restorer
(which she is never- without) relieve her
immediately. I consider her restoration to
perfect health a miracle, for which she is
Indebted to. Brewer's Lung Restorer. My
son is almost'a monomaniac on the subject
of Brewer's Lung Restorer and never lets
an opportunity pass where he thinks such
a medicine would be required, that he does
not speak of it in most glowing terms. Not
long since a Northern gentleman on. his
way to Florida heard of this cure and was
induced by mv son to give it to ms- invalid
wife, and she .was cured as if by magic.
"Mr. Charles Eden, of Trinidad, Colorado,
says: Seeing certificates of the wonderful
cures made by Brewer's Lung Restorer, I
was induced to try it on my httle son, who
was troubled with lung or throat affection,
pronounced by one physician, consumption.
It acted wonderf ally on him, and by
the time be had taken one bottle of it the

i few days to my home and will certainly
