The grand jury in Savannah, Cia.,
has found that twenty-one prisoners
in the couuty ohain gaug are suffer?
ing from exposure. 'Thoy were

Acoordiug to tho report of a Chi
oaso society, there are G0.000 people
in that city who ore oontirmed vic?
tims ot opium. It does not 6ay
how many of these take tho drug
because they want to forget that
they have to live in Chicago.
?IS HO.-U1-: LIFE WOMAN'S
Terhops never before in tho
World's history have tho relations of
woman towards the world been so
tnuob discussed as at tho present
time, Mrs. Elizabeth A. Adams,
writing on tho subject in tho Globe
Quarterly Review, asks tho question
??Is Home Lifo Woman's Limit'/"
t\nd without going into details it
may be answered in tho ucgattvo.
Iu this advanced stage of the world
there is no limit to womau'a useful?
ness, aud as tune goes on her uphuro
Will be enlarged.
To bo sure there was a time when
womau's sphere was almost entirely
cou?ned to the home cirole, and in
truth it may be said that in no posi?
tion in lifo is she more beautiful,
It is not ineaut to say by this, how?
ever, that in uo other position other
than that of domesticity is she at?
tractive, for nndor all ciroumstaoces
a good woman deserves the bomago
of man, and she has it too to tho
highest degree, But the world
The tieldr- of Ecienoo and literature
have been enlarged,and have opeued
up to women avenues of usefulness
heretofore not dreamed of as among
their possibilities. They aro to-day
counted by thousands in the ranks
of both, an 1 nro its ornaments. Ju
literature and in medical science
they have been exceptionally suc?
cessful. In the various branches of
industrial lifo they are also found,
and in no particular cau it be said
that thoy have not rell eoted credit
upon themse v?b.
In this day of advanced thought
and aotio'j there should be no bar to
the enlargement of womau's sphere
of usefulness. Whatever she may
find her bauds and brain equal to,
either for herself or mankind, give
her Q d' - spee I,
BOTH S A tie IC I US AND t Ol.O
N I KS.
Not only are the factories of tho
North moving Southward, says an
exchange, but colonies are forming
to settle the waste places, which,dis?
figure the fiir face of the South. A
colony has recent y purcascd iu oue
of tb i eastern counties of North
Carolin i 25,000 acres of land, which
it will improve and make to blossom
us the rose, The county whioh has
been selected is one that has within
its borders as fertile land a9 any on
the American continent. It is said
that where these peoplo will settle
is the borne of the RouppernoDg
grape, the most luscious and finest
wine|producer of any native grape.
It will produce any grape crop that
can be grown in the temperate zone,
Besides, the climate is most equa?
ble, and eituated as it ib, near the
talt water, the miusmatio influences
that so often throw their baloful
thadow over a rioh soil are diepelled.
There are hundreds of thousand
of acres of such lunds now in all por?
tions of tho South, as it says, whioh
aro praoticaliy overgrown wastes,
waiting or the baud ol man to prest
them into form. They will reward
with their richest treasures, and
that, too, without limit. The West
eanno oiler one titho of tho promise
of the South. This is right, ami
there is room for all. Let both tho
factories and colonies come. Whethei
they select "the Old North State"
as tho place of their future opera
tions, or elsewhere in tho South, the
results will bo the same. There it
no place on the habitable globe
where better returns can be had foi
the labor and capital invested than
in tfte Southern country, and Vir

This is tho advioo tho Jacksonville
Tinies-Uuiou gives its rollers iu
that city, uud it may be added that
it is good advise to follow, it mat?
ters not whore, wbeu, or by whom
Tho vory best advertisement a
towu or oity can receive, says our
contemporary, is tho euthusiaBtio
praiso of thoso who form its popula?
tion. Always bo roadv to say a good
word for it, aud instead of horalding
any drawbacks or defects whioh
may exist, go to work to dovise and
apply a remedy so that thoy will no
longer he there to bo talked about.
Every good citizen will grasp all
opportuuities to advertise the ad?
vantages and attractions of the com?
munity iu which bo lives, fully real?
izing that the common interests is
nccossarily his own.
If people would follow this advise
