The Election of Mayor and Three Ai dermen. NOW COMMANDS ALL ATTENTION Date of Fximary Has Not Been Fixed Yet. The Probability of Another Candidate For Mayor. Aldermanic Timber Is Still Wanting. When the average citizen asks anoth er average citizen who is going to be elected Mayor of Americus the latter carefully sizes up the interrogator and cheerfully admits that he doesn’t know. And the chances are that he unconsciously tells the truth. It is a question that is puzzling the three candidates and their friends not a little bit just now. The chances of success of the three avowed candidates, Messrs. Clarke, Watts and Felder, have been canvassed at length during the past two weeks and with varying results. The probable entry of Mr. W. P. Wallis into the race would change the situation some, and there is a pros pect of his yielding to the requests of his friends to make the race. As yet he will answer positively neither yea nor nay whenever approached on the subject, Many of his friends believe that he will soon announce his candidacy. This would make the race a four cor nered one, as all the candidates are in to the finish despite rumors to the eff ect that one of them might withdraw. The aldermanic end of the campaign is lagging terribly. As yet there are no announcements, though there are three places to be filled. Messrs. Guerry, Watts and Oliver are the re tiring members, and one or all of these will probably oiler again for re-elec tion. Aiderman Watts, however, is out for mayor and already m the race The executive committee will meet shortly and fix the date of the primary, and while the real campaign will be short it will be lively from start to fin ish. ) He Fooled the Surgeons.

A man who “could do anything” and yet could really do nothing well, call ed upon a prominent business man quite recently, seeking employment of any kind. “What can Ido for you sir?” the business man asked. “I want a job of work,” the other re plied. “What can you do?” “Oh, almost anything,” was the re ply; the man spoke slowly and indis tinctly, and without the slightest show of energy; every word was a drag. “We don’t want you. If you had experience we would take you.” He’s like 99 out of a hundred,” said the merchant, as the other withdrew. “Wants work; does not know how to do anything; has no special aptitude or experience.” The man who wants to be a success these days must train himself to some special profession or avocation. The man who carried the message to Garcia carried it because he knew how to carry it. Competent men can get work. A good man can’t be kept down. If you have worth in you, folks will find it out. The man who is willing to work, and can work intelligently and energetically, can get work. Glorious News. Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile of Washita, I. T. He writes: “Four bottles of Electric Bitters has cured Mrs. Brewer of scrofula, which had caused her great suffering for years- Terrible sores would break out on her head and face and the test doctors could give no help but her cure is com plete, and her health is excellent.” This shows what thousands have proved,—that Electric Bitters is the best blood purifier known. It’s the supreme remedy for eczema, tetter, salt rheutn, ulcers, boils and running sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys and bowels, expels poisons, helps digestion, builds up the strength. Only 50 cents. Sold by E J Eldridge, druggist. Guaranteed, ASKS INDEMNITY OF RAILROAD. Circus Lost the Day On Account of Slow Trains. Augusta, Ga., Oct. 27.—The Fore paugh-Sells circus, which left here Thursday night, was stretched Friday all the way between Hephzibah, twelve miles from Augusta, and Tennille, on the Central Railroad, where it was to show Friday. The engines could not pull the heavy circus trains over the high grades and around the curves of the Augusta Southern Railroad, and the first section did not reach Ten nille till 3 p. m. Friday, while the last had not gotten twenty miles from Au gusta at 9 o’clock last night. The cir cus lost the day and will demand in demnication from the Southern Rail way. Constipation is the rock that wrecks many lives; it poisons the very life blood. Regularity can be established through the use of Prickly Ash Bit ters. It is mildly cathartic and strengthens the stomach, liver and kidneys. Dr. E. J. Eldridge. NO FAKIRS WITH THE CIRCUS. The Absence of This Gentry Espec ially Noticed. Usually there comes with a circus a host of fakirs, who sell various articles about the streets and with ways that are dark and peculiar catch the coin of the black and verdant. The absence of this gentry yesterday was particu larly noticeable, and not a complaint of any kind was lodged with the police by persons who had been “touched,” Again, perfect order was observed on the show grounds as well as in the city. There was no drunkenness, and very few arrests were made by the po- j lice up to 12 o’clock last night. : Take Laxative Chocolate; cure « Choronic Constipation and Liver Trouoles. Purely Vegetable.

Police Find a Negro and Case of Whiskey. Fearing for the safety of visitors here yesterday the police were more than usually vigilant to prevent anyone being bitten by “tigers” of defective vision, and when they found a negro with a case of whiskey they sidetrack ed the tombstone polish and caged the coon. The case will be investigated by the grand jury. The baggageman does’t stop a trunk when he checks it.

People Who Called at Postoffice Fol Mail. 1 While merchants ana their clerks putin a very busy day yesterday the postoffice was likewise a storm centre of business and Postmaster Smith and his corps of assistants had their hands fall. At 8:30 o’clock it occurred to De livery Clerk Bass to count the num ber of people who called during the day for mail, and at sp. m. the score stood at 1,139. By adding those who called between 7a. m. and 8.30, when the count began, the total would have exceeded 1,400 letter hunters.
