Our County Court seem to be in the
same fix that the fellow in the quicksand
was, the more they squirm and
fret over the jail question the
deeper they sink. They may sink to

but they will go no further.
The teacher's association, at their
meeting last Saturday, elected Miss
Katie Shipp as editress of the educational

Miss Shipp is an accomplished young

and we hope the teachers of the county
will assist her in keeping up the
column as it should be. Now go to
work, write on educational matters,
let it be short and sweet as possible.

Antiocii, May 4th, 1885.
I have always, as a teacher, been in
favor of encouraging little children in
their efforts to improve themselves,
and nothing gives me more pleasure
than to do so. The following composition
on "The First day of May," was
sent to irie by two little friends of
mine and was composed and written
separately, but were so nearly alike
that I make one answer for both. I
will state, however, that I have the
originals and will keep them as souvenirs
of my two little friends. Miss
Ida Snellen lives in the Tiger neighborhood
and Miss Annie Buckley in

We havo been playing in tho sweet

and oh how glad I am, the forest is

delight in riding through the meadows

in the woods among the flowers, gathering
daisies; they will soon be in
bloom. Oh I hope we will have our
little playmate with us.

Meroury and Potash Vanquished.
Mr. Wiley F. Hood, known to almost
every man, woman and child in
Athens, bears the following testimony
as to the virtues ofSwift's Specific (S.
For 'twelve years I suffered from
mercurial poison, with all of its torturing
pains. I was treated by several
physicians, and was dosed on iodide of
potassium abundantly. This treatment
Increased my trouble. My blood was
thoroughly infected; my skin was thick
and yellow: my stomach was weak so
that I could not retain my food; my
person was broken, out with sores
which became offensive ulcers, and my
strength was gone. Mercury brought
on rheumatism, and potasii had ruined
my stomach, and I thought there wss
nothing left for me to do but to die so
thought many of my friends as
I went hobbling along the street. I
tried all the remedies within reach,
but to no avail. At last a friend suggested
the use ofSwift's Specific. Like
many other drowning men, I was
ready to catch at a straw that came in
sight. I procured six bottles from Dr.
Long. The first bottle gave me hope.
The nausea of the stomach disappeared,
and by the time I had taken the third
thchard lumps on my neck went
away: the ulcers were healed; my
complexion cleared up, my skin
smoothed off, and my strength began
to return. I have taken in all about"
thirty bottles It has made a new man
of me. I am a man of G3 years, but am
strong and vigorous, eat anything and
do anything and do any kind of work.
I am sound and well. It is my honest
opinion that Swift's Specific has taken
me from the gruve's mouth and added
many years to my life. I would recommend
it to suffering humanity everywhere,
not as a universal panacea for
all diseases but as a specific for all blood
and skin diseases, such as blood poison,
rheumatism, scrofula, eczema, tetter
and catarrh, for I have seen it tried on
most all of these. I am ready and
more than willing to answer all inquiries
tending the above points I am
well known in Athens, and refer to
any one or all the old citizens of this
city. Wiley F. Hood.
Jan. 5, 1885. Athens, Ga.
Tho Best in the Market.
I have been afflcted with a blood
humor and indigestion for fifteen years.
I have used various medicines, but
with little purpose. I have received
more benefit from Swift's Specific (S. S.
S.J than anything else I have ever
taken. It is the best blood purifier on
the market. A. J Bbooks,
