TUTrS_PILLS
A Noted Divine says
^TfSe^g are tvortii tfieir
weight in gold.
READ WHAT HE SAYS:
Da. Tutt:?Dear Sir: For . :n years I have been
a martyr to Dyspepsia, Constipation, and Piles. Last
spring your pills were recommended to me ; I used
them (but'with little faith}. 1 am now a well man,
have good appetite, digestion perfect, regular stools,
piles gone, and I have gained forty pounds solid llcsh.
They arc worth their weight in gold.
Rev. IX. L. SIMPSON, Louisville, Ky.
Dr. Tutt has been en
paged in the practice of
medicine thirty years, and
for along time wtu demon.
Btrator of anatomy in the
Medical College of Geor
gia, hence persons using
his I'tlls have the guaran
tee that thev are prepared
on scientific principles,
and are free from all
quackery.
He has succeeded in
combining in them the
heretofore antagonistic
qualities of a strengthen
mg,purgative,anJ a pur.
ifytng tonic.
Their first apparent ef
fect is to increase the ap
petite by cuusing the food
to properly assi in i late.
Thus the system is nour
ished, and by their tonic
action on the digestive or
gans, regular and healthy
evacuations are produced.
The rapidity with which
persons take on flesh,
while under the influence
of these pills, ol itself in
dicates their adaptability
lo nourish the body, and
hence their efficacy in cur
ing nervous debility, mcl.
nncholy.dyspepsia,' wast
ing of the muscles, slug,
gishncss of the liver,
chronic constipation, and
imparting health and strength to the system. Sold

Free Trade.
Congress by a vote last week per
mits articles for the Art and Scienti

How much more would it conduce to
the prosperity of the people and the
advancement of civilization, if they

necc sity to the laborer, plows, mills
and other inncbii.ery fcr the farmer,
books and dr?>igs for the scholar ami
professions, and tools for the mech

legislation is injeed pandering to the
rich at the expense o! the po>r.
Free trade is one of the cardinal

infinitely better to meet the

Mr. tol.lw :
Last I'Viday was a gala day with
.he young people, of Dura t and
Kosciusko. The. Sunday schools o f
the Ivo towns united in holding a
pic nie at ?Saliis, a town situ it.ri d
about hall wai" between the above
named towns. The excursion l?i S i
us was the cheapest I have ever
known, the laic being only tw-i nits
^25cents) round trip. The pleasure
seekers were very much disappointed
at finding ccinparilively no prepar
ation made for their enjoyment, by
the Sal Iis Sunday schot.l, however,
.hey were determined to enjoy them
selves to their heart's content. As
soon as the Kcseiu.-ko train arrived
i
the Du rant train having arrived
previously) the plays ceased, and
voting and old assembled under a
large oak, whot>c friendly brunches,
nature's awning, shielded us from the
rays of a wann, May-day sun, and
(?astcd our cars on some of the bust
eloquence of the State; and having
feasted our cars and minds, we re
paired to the sumptuous dinner, at
which all of us were very eloquent,
lor * r. Editor, you know "eloquence
U action." Sailis was excusable for
not inking a part in the picnic as she
had promised, for she had been sadly
bereaved two or three days previous
ly, by the sudden death of one of her
most prominent Citizen?, Mr. Jack
Sailis Mr. Sailis was an excellent
teacher, an cxamplary citizen. His
wile died about three weeks u^o, and
Mr.^nllis had not been well si use her"
death, but no one thought bim ser
iously sick. He leaves several small
children, and a large circle of rela
tives and friends to mourn his death
His place is vacant. Ah i who cau

Tho Moral of Russia's Humiliation .
Russia's present position fairly
illustrate* the quality of bur stat-H
manship. Afh r a Quixotic cum pat*
gn, costing h?i 8000,000,000, she
finds herself unable to hold the fruiu,
??f her victory, compelled to submit,
abjectly to the dictation of England,
her exchequer bankrupt, her Iinpcr
ial Bank verging on suspension, and
her people in a state of widespread
disaffection. She undertook to settle
compulsnrily thtj Eastern question ,
ami ends by settling nothing, but has
to submit the whole work of settle
ment to the Powers whose antecedent
joint, arrangements she assumed to
set at naught. A more complete
humiliation has rarely befallen a
nation. Stiitestnansh ip that was tin
able to .=ec- this end from the begin
ning must be regarded as either very
blind or very reckless. Either the
Russian Government have a very
exaggerated estimate of its power, or
it must have bad a very imperfect
comprehension ol the attitud e of the
European governments on the ques
tion it assumed to solve; and, in eith
er case, the. reflection upon the wis
dom that guides the helm of state is a
very serious one. A country whose
resources are thus wantonly squand
ered and which thus fails in its most
ambitious undertakings is nut likely
to become the controlling power in
European politics tint l\ ussiu aspires

and the development of her home re

is doomed to sure decadence. In her
competition with the higher nivi'ua- ?
lion of lhtar nations, she will find work
enough in hoi (ling her own, without

ternal aggressions. Her statesmen

A Satisfactory Reply.
A successful merchant, not far

termed *an "old field school," in, one
of the rural districts, and like most
teachers, was particular as to tho

we refer a fourth came wi h them, a
boy a little older than the others, who

A Family Fight.
The W-s and tho F-s
are. the two principal families in
Northeast Georgia, and it is a popu
lar superstition that a man born bore
is nearly or remotely connected with
one ot lb ose two families. As is
usually the eas3, the W-s are
jealous of the F -S, and the
F-s make war on the \Y-s.
If a \V-and an F-get into a
quarrel, others are embroiled, and a
personal dispute oftentimes assti mes
mammoth proportions before it is
definitely settled. They toll a very
good story at Dahloncga of this pe
culiarity. Circuit Court was in ses
sion and an F-was on tho bench.
The court and county officers were
about equal I v divided, among the
two families. Tin: court house in
Dahloncga is arranged with the
court-room in the second story, the
first floor being used as ofliees for the
county officials. A wide hallway
rims through the building and two
flights of stairs connect the first floor
with the court-room. Court was in
session, and the room was paeked.
A noise liubbub in the hall below
arrested the attention of judgo, jury,
attorneys and spectators. .Curses and
loud words were plainly heard. It
was evident a fight wasgoing on.
'?Mr, Sheriff," commanded tho
jjidge, "take thoie disorderly parties
into custody and hnng them up
here. 1 will teach thetn. to have
proper respect for this honorable
court.
Tim directed the sheriff left the
room, lint did not return. The tu
mult waxed louder and the quarrel
was evidentIj increasing i in lea d of
decreasing. Occasionally a pistol
ahot was board. Several of the spec
tators a id one or two of the attor
neys left the room. The judge look
' ed around and espying a deputy
sheriff directed him to hasten to the
assistance of his chief. He went,
but did not return. Tho coroner
Evas s nt; he, too, remained below.
The uproar grew louder and the re
ports of pistols more frequent. A
constable, two bailiffs, another depu
! tv sheriff and the clerk of tho court
I weie in turn commanded to preserve
the peace and uphold the dignity of
I the court. Not one of these officials
! returned, and the room was nearly
I cleared of attorneys and spectators,
while the "twelve good men and
true" twisted uneasily on theirbenc b
in the jury box. The face of the
honorable court, became crimson with
shame and enger; and as the solicitor
general laid down his ho iks and pre
pared to leave the room he dismissed
the jury, and coining down off the
I bench was heard to remark that
'?he'd see if this court was to bo trea
ted with contempt!" Flushed with a
consciousness of tho great indignity
being olfercd bis worshipful person
by the rioters below, his honor hasten
ed down stairs. A crowd was surg
ing up and down the hall, mad with
passion. Pistols were brandished,
bowie-knives flashed ami the air was
heavy with smoke ami curses. Paus
ing for a inoine.it on the stairway,
tho better to survey the field of battle,
the honorable judgo Bttddeiilv threw
off his official robe, pulled a murder
ous seven shooter from bio belt, and
with the cry of "(Jive 'ein Ii ? 1
boys!" jump ted into tho crowd and
lost hi> official idonti y in die general
i rush The F-s and the
\V??s were at war, ami not until
tin latter party was at last vanquish
co did the judge return to his bench.

Insurance on the Tibar.
'Marcus Ctclius,1 Cicero s tic! to his
legal fricud, meeting him one morn
ing on the other side of a screen under
the Capitol, 'what shall it be ?'
CnTins said he would lake a little
spiritus frumenti oplimus, straight,
and the orator remarking that that
was about the F-i/.e of his, went on :
'I wish you would get out. the neces
sary papers some time today/aud
bring suit for m* against the. Yellow
Tib'ir Fin: and Marine Insurance
Company for the amount of its poli
cies on my villa at Tusculum and my
town house.'
M. Call nslooked up in umn/.cmcnt.
'Why,' lie exclaimed, 'when did
they bu.rn down ? And what was if?
Accident? Mob? ?ome of Codius'
people ?'
'No,' Cicero said, 'they arc intact ^
as yet, and, in fact, I haven't, insured
them ?yet, but I tun going to do so to
morrow, and I want to bring suit
against tho company now.so that if
they ever should happcu to burn, I
won't have quite So long to wait for
the money.'
Codins saw that the orator's head
was level, and brought suit that after
noon. Kl-veii years afterward the
villa at Tesculum and the town house
were both destroyed by fire. Tho
suit had by that time been in five
different Court-, and bad been cou
Gr med, and reversed, and remanded,
and referred to the mas er to take
proof, and stricken from thd docket,
and amended, nud rebutted, andsur
rebutted, ami im pleaded, and r-joiu
dered, and filyd, and quashed, and
continue ! until nobody knew 'vlut .t ?
was about, and Cicero was notified,
three w eeks after the fire, that he
would have to prove willful ar.d'otig
cnn?!"od qlv,cnrn and no^lo ?: '???? \y*
Could not ?ft a decree simply on
grounds of incompntability of temper ?
nmcnt And when he went f-> the
Secretary oft he company, that official
told htm the company didn't k low
any thing about the fire and had uu
time to attend to such things. The
company's business, the Secretary
said, was to insure houses, uot to run
around to fires, asking about the in
surance. If be wanted any informa
tion on those points, be would have
to nik tho firemen or tho newspaper
reporters. The more a man reads in
these old histories, the more he ia
convinced that the insurance business
in the days of the p retard wasagreat
deal more like it is to-day.
A Word to Families.
Nothing presents a sa i lor commen
tary upon the present condition of
society than the large number of
families, both in town and country,
but more especially in the latter,
that subscribe to no paper of any
kind. Hundreds and thousands of
families are thus growing up uttorly
ignorant of what is transpiring in the
world around them?ignorant of the
mighty events of the day. But who
can tell the vast amount of injury
that is being indicted ou the rising
generation?those who are to take
?Air places in the busy world at no
distant day?growing up without any
knowledge of the present, and study
of the post; this ignorance, too, boing
imbued into them by the sanction of
tbose who should, ami doubtless do,
know better, did they only think of
tho injurious effects of tlfl-ir insane
course Let the head of every family
think ol this ?nd place in tho bauds
of those for whom ho is responsible
the means of acquiring some know
ledge of the moving panorama in
which we act the diflTardu pir:s.
