Keep on hand a Large Stock of Burial Cases and Coffins, all grades and prices. W. A. POSEY. Thk Aberdeen Weekly FRIDAY MOKNINH.; JULY 3, 1830 !'..- . . . "Colonel" ig a military title tlmt Is indis pensable, especially in the southern purt of America. The salutation "Good morning Colonel !" always meets with shilling re sponse. It iiiakosnot apartiele of riiflercnee whether a citizen has been in tlie military line or not lie never falls to respond to theaririress of -Colonel." "Hello, Colonel!" pronounced in a moderately loud tone of voice on Main street, and every citizen within hearing of the words would respond, thinking himself personally addressed. One reason for the almost universal custom is that the word "Colonel" is -easier to pro nounce than "Mister And then, in the whirl of biisimwi, one forgets some times the names of acquaintances, and the handy "Colonel" comes in to supply all rie tlclencic in that respect, and when once the habit of styling an acquaintance a "Col onel" is formed, the habit sticks closer than a brother. Another reason, not to lightly considered. Is that there is just the faintest suspicion of military rank connected with the title. It is true, It is only a bare suspi cion. But unless a person has been inti mately associated witJi the "Colonel" for the past twenty years, there will always re main a shred of belief that possibly, in the remote past, the reputed "Colonel" might have seen service at the head of at least a regiment of home guards. Two classes of citizens are, However, wnouy exempt, wnue another class is only partially entitled to receive the honorable title. Doctors and preachers are never called "Colonels," but every lawyer who is not stvlyed a "Judge" is a "Colonel." The right of editors to the title Is undisputed, and they are all "Col onels," without exception. With the ex ception of doctors and preachers, every cit izen is liable, some time or other, to be styled a "Colonel." The slightest notoriety . of any sort is quite sufficient to convert a very modest and peaceable citizen into a full blown "Colore'.' The chiiirmanshipof a ward meeting has been known to make a young politiean a life long "Colonel.' Another citizen, who has come off tirst best in a tussel with the Monroe street "tiger," has ever after been known its the Colonels.' While It is hard on the real "Colonel," who have seen service at the head of their rcgl meDts, in a real war, yet it must be con fessed that there would be a big hiatus in this world of military titles, if the world was strictly confined to a des ignation of thoseonly who are or have been, some time or other, sure enough Colonels. Memphis Aoalanehc. One of the Millions. "Men file an' ar' known no moar," began the President, as stillness reigned through out the hall of the Limekiln Club. "It am my paineful dooty to Inform die club datde Hon. Cumhack Slathers, an honorary mem ber rcsidin'at South Bend, has passed ober de dark rlhber. He has often wisited dis club an' worked on de twenty-ninth degree wid us, an' be was calkerlutin' to remove to dis city nex' month an' enter upon a vigor ous career of whitewashing Cumhack Slathers was not a great man. He wasn't a man that would ever save the kentrv or ruin it. Ilenebersot inde Legislatm-' an' he was no orator. He had no horn to toot nn' no nx to grind. He was simply a plain man one ob the million of common peb bles on de shore of time's great ocean wait in' to be gathered. Outside of a little cir cle ob friends no one will miss him. Some oiler man will walk In de paths hollowed out by his footsteps. Some oder pebble will be washed upon the shore to take the vacant place, an de big world will roll on J 1st de same as if such a man ncber moved among us. As a club we do not believe in eulogies. Men am what dey am' an' dyin' (loan put angels' wings on de shoulders of sinners. Let me simply say of our dead an' gone brudder riat he used men jist as men used him, w hich is principle dat knocks de f olden rule sky high any day in de week, found him honest and truthful, charitable; and he was a man who fully realized de fack when formln'.an' opinvun of oder men, dat while a ten fousan' dollar diamon kin be carried in de west packet, It takes a big we liielc to tote along a score of empty burls worth twenty cents apiece." Southern Cotton Mills Manufacturers and capitalists. North and South, have never before manifested so much interest as at the present time con cerning the prospects of a large extension of the cotton manufacturing industry at the South. Hitherto, as a rule, our Northern mill-owners have not looked upon the competition of Southern factories as of a very serious character. They have paid lit tle attention to the elaborate calculations of Southern journalists designed to show the advantage of bringing the mills to the cot ton, because they looked upon them as the Idle estimates of theorists. But gradually a different sentiment has sprung up. The building of new mills of the largest capaci ty, and with the latest and most Improved machinery, at Augusta, Columbus, Atlanta, and other Southern points, the investment of large sums by Northern capitalists who have looked into the subject, and the really extraordinary rate of dividends that have been earned by the well managed Southorn mills, are facts that have at last forced them selves upon the attention of New England mill-owners and capitalists Interested in cot ton manufacturing. The result, is that they now contemplate the whole subject with lively Interest. Some of New Kngland cot ton manufacturers have Investigated the matter quite thoroughly, and we know of one or two who do hot hesitate to say that we are on the eve of an extensive transfer of this great industry from the North to the South. Vuttvn. browing Old. Henry Ward Bcccher. "It is ignominious to see men sitting down in Indolence simply because they are growing old ; don't seek cany ways ; leand to rust; don't talk about your age; and at all events, for decency's sake, don't talk about your diseases. If you know you have the rheumatism that, is enough. Don't be prematurely old ; don't be older in your feeling than you are in fact; don't with draw from your interest In life; read what is going on in the world; don't leave to younger men and get out of their way. Don't get out ofanybodys way, and above nil don't get in your own way. A Vermont town board wrestled with (he word 'Dangerous." to lie used as a sign on a bridge, for over an hour, and finally got if, 'Dangeruns." "Always tiny as you go," said an old man to bis nephew. "Hut. uncle, suppose ( haven't anythingto pay with """Then don't go." General John A. Sutton, whose death was announced last week, had a very remarka ble career. He was born in Germany, and in the early years of ills man-hood served with distinction in the armies of France and Switzerland. He then came to this coun try ,nnd when Western Missouri was regard ed as almost a wilderness, he settled there From thence he went to Now Mexico and engaged in profitable trade. His restless and adventurous spirit, however, would not permit him to rest long in any place, and he made his way to the Pacific coast and there opened up a fur trade with the settlers of Alaska. He was with the Fremont expedi tion, and won some fame In connection with it. Finally, he settled on a ranche in California, and became famous from the fact that gold was first discovered in Cali fornia on his place. The excitement atten dant upon the discovery brought thousands to his ranche, and it was not long before he was stripped of all his property, both per sonal and real. For years he tried to get something for the land of which he had been despoiled from congress, and at the last session a small pension was granted him. He did not live long, however to en joy it. "Prisoner at the bar," said the Judge to the man on trial for murder., "is there any thing you wish to say before sentence is passed upon you?" "Judge," replied the prisoner, solemnly, "there has been alto gether to much said already. 1 knew all along somebody would get hurt if these people didn't keep their mouths shut. It might as well be me perhaps, as anybody else. Drive along, Judge, and give us as little sentiment as you can get along on. I can stand hanging, but I hate gush." .But ton Transcript. GarHcId said he borrowed three hundred dollars from Oakes Ames with which to pay debts which he had contracted during a trip to Europe. Then the committee found that the sum was three hundred and twenty nine dollars, that It was paid as dividend on credit mobilier stock, and that Garfield did not jo to Europe until two years after he receiv ed the monry.
