.cisi?n that Magistrates "have

?'the reasons therefor will be filed
later." Wo must confess that we
were in 1 he outset prejudiced
against Judge Gary's decision. But
afier reading his reasons we are
satisfied that they are sound, and
it may bo that the Supreme Judges
might not do better than adopt th?
earne, with a little elaboration, as
A Christmas Reminiscence.

21 years ago, I was a pupil of the
Georgia Institution for the blind.
The autumnal winds had died away
December's month had well ad

the explosion of firepoppers an

odor o? fruits and sweetmeats
that filled the air. Wbar did it
mean? It wa3 said that Misses G.
and K. had gone down town. It
was whispered that they had actu

was gone. The twilight had faded

I was told that in the past the

by the merry song of the girls as
they marched through the chapel

agreed by the members of our or

and as ike girls commenced their
song. andvmarch we* would aston -

I said that on the night of Xmas
eve, our principal after prayer dis

Through Fancy's eye, I saw the
