We are glad that we can say that the. best sentiment of our Southern people is against soch horribilia as were practiced In Georgia on that bright April Sabbath over a week ago. Only the most depraved classes can to'erate such. We trust that opposing Christian sentiment may grow and grow nntil men and wo men can cease shuddering at the black crimes that provoke and the black crimes that would avenge. Many old soldiers now feel the effects of the hard service they en dured during the war. Mr. George S.

"I had a severe attack lately," he says, "and procured a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It did so much good that I would like to know what you would charge me for one dozen bottles." Mr. Ander son wanted it both for his own use and to 6upplv it to his friends and neighbors, as every family should have a bottle of it In their home, not only for rheumatism, but lame back, sprains, swellings, cuts, bruises and burns, for which it is unequalled.

Gattis brought suit for 8100,000 damages agaiust Dr Kilgo. 13. N. Duke, W. R. Odell and W. H. Branson. It does not effect the merits of the case at all. Judge Bryan held that Mr. Gattis must sue each of the parties sepa rately. If the Supreme Court af firms that decision, Mr. Gattis will have to enter a separate suit against each of the parties.
