Quite recently the question of cheap er lighting for the city hall has been under discussion, with the result that it was ascertained that the city could saye money by owning and operating a small dynamo in connection with the machinery at the pumping station, where power, without extra cost, could be obtained. The total cost of an in dependent equipment, ready for use and capable of lighting with 85 lights the pumping station, the city hall, fire department and clock tower, would have been S4OO. The cost of operating same would be only nominal, as this could be done by the engineer at the reservoir. As it is, the Council pays about 8500 per annum for lighting the hall, fire department and clock. The proposed investment will not be made, however.

Americus Shippers are Getting Good Returns. The much derided and despised Le Conte pear is outstripping tne Elber ta peach just now as a shipper and most excellent seller. Returns for shipments made by Americus growers indicate a pear famine in the East, and fancy prices are the result. Mr. E. D. Ansley, one of the largest shippers in Americus, has sent forward several carloads within the past week, finding an excellent market at interior points in Pennsylvania and New York state. From one orchard out near Rees Park he has shipped nearly 2,500 bushels, and has not yet finished harvesting the crop there. The prices paid are most satisfactory, sometimes being as high as three dollars per barrel, less freight and expenses. Pear blight has injured the trees here to a considerable extent, but even with such a backset the yield of fruit is very large and will net the growers more money than did the peach crop in this section of the state. More attention will be given the partly neglected pear orchards another sea son. 1 A Life and Death Fight. Mr. W. A, Hines of Manchester, la., writing of his almost miraculous escape from death, says: “Exposure after measles induced serious lung trouble, which ended in Consumption. I had frequent hemorrhages and coughed nignt and day. AU my doctors said I must soon die. Then I began to use Dr K'ng’s New Discovery for Consumption, which completely cured me. I would not be without it even if it cost $5.00 a bottle. Hundreds have used it on my recom mendation and all say it never fails to cure throat, chest and lung Troubles.” Regular size 500 and sl.

Suggested That Americus Invite the People Here- Inasmuch as our successful carnival of last September will not be repeated this year someone has suggested, as the next best thing to attract a few thousand visitors, a monster barbecue for the people of Sumter and surround ing counties. | Ist. is Labor Day and a general holiday, and this has been suggested as a suitable date for the big ’cue in the event our mer chants consider the proposition favor ably. A programme of entertainment could easily be arranged, cheap rates on railroads secured, and this, with a monster feast for the multitude would bring a great crowd here on Labor Day. What say the merchants and business men regarding the ’cue? If you nave no appetite for your meals something is wrong with your digestion, liver or bowels. Prickly Ash Bitters cleanses and strengthens the stomach, purifies the bowels and creates appetite, vigor and cheerful ness. Dr. E. J. Eldridge. —— g - NEGROES HELD FOR BURGLARY. Suspects Who May Be Wanted in Putnam County. Two negroes were arrested here yes terday by Sheriff McArthur upon the strength of information sent him by the sheriff of Putnam county, where Ike Stephens and Charles Peavy are wanted for burglary. After their ar rest the negroes admitted that they be longed in Putnam county but denied being the individuals wanted. The sheriff of Putnam may come here today to see if the men are the right ones. Coming Back to Americus. Mr. Merrel Callaway, jr., who holds a position with the Atlantic Coast Line Railway, will return to Americus next week to accept a clerical position at the Seaboard shops. His Americus friends will be glad to have him back again. Takes a Larger House.

More New Cotton is Expected Here This Morning. Americus warehousemen expect to see a number of new cotton bales brought in this morning, Americns has already received the second bale of the new crop marketed in Georgia this season, and others from Sumter coun ty farms will be placed along with it today. The dry and extremely hot weather since Tuesday last is causing cotton on light and sandy lands to open and farmers will gather this while prices are still on a high range. One warehouseman here expects to receive three or four bales today, while some of the others may be equally as fortu nate. There is no spot market as yet, though a good price will be paid by local buyers for any cotton that may be brought in now.

TO BEGIN WORK IN SHORT TIME. Curbing of Residence Street Not Long Delayed. If residents of College and Lee streets will but possess their souls in patience a little while longer they may witness the beginning of the work of curbing those thoroughfares, already so long delayed.

He will begin on College street, and expects to complete the grading and curbing there within twenty days. The forces will then be distributed along Lee street from the artesian well to Furlow, a distance of nearly a mile, and the much needed im provements made there as well.
