To the Picayune: In my rejxmt on Potatoes you make me say “Sweet Potatoes” where 1 intend it to be' ‘Potatoes”, so please correct and say “taters”. The way it reads in the paper is somewhat like Bishop Fitzcer ald’s educated negro, who at a meal with his little brother that I called for “lasses.” was told by the educated one that he should no) say “lasses” but“mo-lasses”. The little negro in reply said, “How you recon I's guine to say mo-lasses when I aint had any lasses yit?” So I “aint” got any sweet po tatoes yet. Yours, B. F. Steele. BIRMINGHAM U. C. V. REUNION.

MONCRIFF MAKES GOOD He Wheels J. 5. Stone Through the Streets of Prescott in a Wheelbarrow. Last Saturday afternoon at 3 o’clock a large crowd of Nevada county’s citizens witnessed a spectacle of patriotism seldom to be witnessed. It was the wheel ing of J. B. Stone through the streets of Prescott by Col. Otis Monerief, in payment of an elec tion bet. At three o.clock Messrs. Mon erief and Stone met at the Mc Daniel Hardware store, and be fore the wheeling began. Col. Monerief made a speech. He re ferred to the fact that he was an ei-Confederate veteran, a man who had stood up before bullets and had been in many hard fought battles for four long years be cause of his conviction that the cause for which he stood was right, and that inasmuch as he had made the bet to wheel Mr. atone through the streets of rres cott in case Mr. Donaghey was nominated by the democrats as their choice for governor, he was there to make his word good. He called attention to the fact that so Ibng as he had been a resident of this county no one could say that he had ever failed to make his word good. He laid particu lar stfess upon the fact that it made no difference how trivial or how great was the conse quence, that it was always the best policy to make good. He said that he had supported Mr. Kirby in his race for govenor, but now he was as good a Dona ghey man as was the man whom he was to wheel, and with that PROGRAM TODAY *'Under the Seas.** "Costumes of Centuries** "Liquid Electricity** ADMISSION ONLY ■ntira Chang* of ftctura* Daily. he proceeded to his task. Mr. Stone, who weighs two hundred or more, carried a large banner with “Hurrah for Donaghey” painted on it. Mr. Moncrief wheeled Mr. Stone from McDaniel Hardware Store to the corner of the Bank of Prescott. Many witnessed the wheeling, and take the day and the deed as a whole, Col. Mon crief was the lion of the occasion. Several snap shots were taken and later on the picture of both will appear m this paper. —Call at our store for any thing usually sold at a first class drug store.
