Tenne ss s san, aged, say 60 yean, who
reads this latter should chance to recall
even a portion of the history of this
?tate as received from father or mother
in thrdays of his boyhood, his interest
in Au gu ata would instantly be intensi
fied; for he would recollect that, accord
ing to the statements of his parents,
this city was for a number of years the
great distributing point for the states
above indicated. Those were the days
bf wagon trade, and the merchants of
Augusta and the people of those states
were in close touch. Between them ob
tained the most perfeot confidence.
Railways have come in and disturbed
somewhat the old relationship, but to a
limited extent only. From father to
son the kindly feeling has been trans
mitted; and, to-day, everything that
touches the "old city's forward move
ment excites enthusiastic sympathy and
commands zealous co-operation.
Augusta was never so beautiful as
she is today. Broad street has been as
phalted and is, perhaps, with the ex
ception of Pennsylvania avenue, the
most beautiful business thoroughfare is*
the United States. On every hand are
unmistakable evidences of a healthful
growth. No boom, none wanted. The
progress made is substantial-a result
of paient, well directed effort.
The most casual observer among the
visitors to the city cannot fail to note
the fact that thoughtful plodding has
It seldom occurs in this country that
a community is itself surprised at the
results achieved in a decade. So lost to
the idea of "booming" were the citizens
of this place, so intent were they on the
subject of their double mission-a man
ufacturing as well as a mercantile com
munity-they were more gratified at
the census figures which write them at
the head of the oolumn.
You see, if this had come after a fight
with sister cities, which is sometimes
indulged in, there would not have at
tended it one-tenth the satisfaction now
enjoyed. They have builded on their own
foundation; they can publish the facts
to the world without exciting the an
tipathy of any city or any citizen.
You must concede that the mission
alluded to is very difficult, almost im
possible of achievement. But pluck
and plod do ' not yield to difficulties.
The result is, the manufacturing estab
lishments of the city have increased in
number, in cotton consumed and goods
manufactured. Tnis fact possesses in

shows conclusively that the proper

The Augusta exposition is a happy
thought in the interest of hundreds of
exhibitors and thousands of people who
cannot afford to get to the World's Fair
The Augusta directory saw this op
portunity to advertise not only Augusta,
but the south, and quickly resolved to
turn it to profitable account. They
further did a good thing in ea cu ring the
co-operation of President Waddell and
his executive committee of the State so
ciety. This guarantees several county
exhibits. There can be no finer exem
plification of a county's possibilities
than a first-class county exhibit. Than
such exhibit, there is no surer way of
getting one's county fully and favora
bly in the eyes of the public.
The directory have voted $20,000 for
premiums and prizes. This, coupled
with $50,000 in attractions, will present
to the pub; ic ?n exposition second only
in importance to the Columbian at Chi
President Waddell is exerting M a
ssif in behalf of oounty and individual
exhibits. The indications are that the
contest will exceed in interest any ever
had in this country.
In live stock, a subject in which all
our people feel the deepest interest, the
exhibit promises to surpass all efforts in
that line in the past.
Your correspondent cannot tell it in
the amplifying language of the verbose
man who writes the advertisements of
the boards or the circus and hippo
drome. I venture to say that Mr.
Sandy Cohen, who has a wonderful rec
ord as a systematic and tireless worker,
has exclusive charge of this interesting
branch of Augusta's grand exposition.
Earing said this, it would seem unnec
essary to repeat for the amusement of
your readers, the would-be language of
the advertiser first named: "The di
rectory has determined that nothing
can be too grand or - gorgeous, in the
line of attractions, for this exposition.
So great will they be, so startling and
novel, so thrilling and so full of em
blazonry, that from hundreds and hun
dreds ot miles round the people. will
pour into Augusta-coming in great
companies to see the exposition."
In other words, Buffalo Bill, the
drawing card of the World's Fair, is
being sought after and mar be here.
The directory contemplate securing
"the mammoth, magnificent, stupen
dous, spectacular production" which
celebrates the transcendent event of

matter to be first settled at this

better to pleasure a fool than to be
plagued with him, and if there
ever was a time when this adage
was true it is just at this junc
ture. We do not admit that the
