that the present is the time for aes

system and a guano factory ore
among the projects suggested.
Any cne of these would be a good
investment, and would help amaz
ingly to build up the city. Let
our talk now erystalize into action.
A Disgaace. i
The depot at Dawson is a dis- |
grace to the city and 1o the Cen- |
tral railroad alike. i
A petition has been sent from ‘
here to the authorities of the road |
asking that we be given a new and |
madern building for a depot. Why )
Dawson has been so lonk digraced
by the hull now in use sa nmm‘r‘
that is only Known by the road’s
anthorities.. There 18 no rmsun‘
except pure cussedness on the part
of the railroed officers why a city l
o' Dawson’s size md inumrt:mool
should not have a depot that wonld
do justice, at lexst, to our vim and
For years Dawson has been bads

Sigrs < f Progress in Dawson.
A few days ago the NEws stroil
ed over the eity locking at the won
derfal progress that it is m=king io
the way of buildings. No matter
in what direction we went, we were
rever out of hearing of the saw,
the bammer or the trowel, Indecd
our Leauntilul eity secms to have
heen touched by the wand of some
wighty magiciin, Her waste plac
¢z are rapidly passing away, and
shie is nobly winning the proud dis
tinetion ot beiug the most progres
sive city in Southwest Georzia,
One of the wost powertul fue~
tors that will aid in the future
building up of our town
“.\ the building and lo n associa in
that was oraanized here a jew days
ago. This will periit the ereetion
of howes by the working classes
which could not otherwise be r. adi
ly secured. There i 3 no doubt
that the foun lation of the thrift
of the working people of New En
gland is small monthly savings pt t
where they will return ten fold.
The Nuws has repetedly ureed
its readers to follow this course,
Those who depeid on salaries for a
livelihood should prepare for a
rainy day. By proper mavagement
every wage-earner in Dawson could
be able to lay aside a sriall shm
from his mouthly earnimgs. These
savings invested in a building and
loan association world urable him
to build a home at very little cost
Let wagesearners think about this
matter. They ought certainly to
have an eye to the future,
The Road Eongress.
The road congress will meet in
Atlanta this morniog. Terrell couns
ty will be ably :epresented in the
1; ecting by Geor O Hill
W. D. Murray and J. C. Simpson. !
There is good reason to hope lhm‘
convention will be so well attended |
as to arouse a general and just ap- ‘
preciation of the importaace of tl:e‘
objeet which it has in view. |
The matter ot the durable ime
lpm\emont of the common roads
of the state is not a county or sec
! tionzl allair. It comprehends the
who'e state in its scope, and the
localities tarthest from railroad fa
cilities will be most benefited. llf a
scheme of gereral substantial i~
provemeut can be set on foot, it
will soon eflect for farmers all over
the state a considerable saving in
botli yearly road duty and in haul
inz their produce to market or to
the nearest railroad It will also
be a great help to our people in
| the desirable economy of “living
{ more at home,” because the easior
t #nd cheaper marketing of their pro
‘ducts will enable them better
|t|) compete with distant
secticns for the supply of the home
E demand.
: In every view which can be tas|
I ken of it, this movement in favnr‘
| of better common roads is a nmsti
'impmtanL one, and it is very des
{ sirable the convention may be alle
t to present so practical and feasilJo
a scheme and with so stron £asups
port as to secure tavorable consids
eration for it by the legislature at
{its approaching July sesion. 1

I, “In anotker column of this morn
[ing’s News and Advertiser will be
| found a notice that Col. G, Gunby
!.Jnrdan and associates intend to ap
l-ply for a charter for the ‘Alabama,

| tion of a railroad running through
! the counties of Muscogee, Chatta
| hoochee, Stewart, Webster, Rans
| dolph, Calhoun, Early, Baker,
| Mitler and Deeatur, of this State.
i This looks very much like the an«
souneement of the finul aban
! conment of the ‘Columbus South
] ern.”
The above from the Albany
g News and Advertiser goes on to
| sy that the “abandonment of the
{Columbus Southern is a vary ses
; riousblow to Albany.” We tuke
, great pleasure in informing our
j contemporary that it has made a
| mistake. The Columbus Southern
s hix not and will not be abandoned.
{ On the contrary,arrangen:ciyts have
ijust been pertected which will jn.
sure the speedy completion of this
‘ very important line. Columbus is
i not in the habit of aban loving her
ir.xilrmu! projects. Our contempo
y rary ought not to have allowed 1t«
éwlt' to huve been frightened by the
fanvouncement that Columbus had

Last Thursday there appe red
iy the ety 2Dy -C. T Davidueon,
parperting to eepesent some kind of
medical concern for the restoration
of hair to bald heidds. Atter guihiug
a few ot our most prominent eiti
zens to the amount ot several dol
lars each he was found out to ie a
fraud, and that mact was telegra phe
ed to Albany, where Davidson had
gone trom heve.
So sore does one of the hairless
victims feel he penpned a tew lines
and stuck them uuder our office
door, presumably for publication.
Here they are: :
Once upon asunmer’s day,
As we knocked the flies away
From eur heuds so slick and bild,
Wisbing *hat we had wore hair
On our heads g 0 bald and tair,
Suddenly there struck the city
A *“‘Hair Doctor” full of pity
For those heads more bald than
He said he’d pat back securely
The bair that left so prematurely.
For this man we long had waited,
But to tell the truth, we hated
To pay the ““five” which he stuted
Was a sort ot entrance fee.
“No mun no hair;” we gave the V,
But where, oh! where are the
locks he said
Would return again to our lockless
heads? >
Do they slumber, Orr are they
Will they not wave as of yore?
Icho answers, **Nevermore.”
As we ponder o’er our fate,
To live and die with hairless pate,
Our bleod boils up and we get mad,
And if that Doctor we only had
We'd make hiw teel infernally sadl.
We'd shave his lied slick and bald,
We'd take hot water and proceed
to scald,
We'd kick his pants, we'd pull
his nose,
We'd dress him in tar and {eather
- We'd bang him up by dis thumbs
| and toes,
In fact there’s no telling what we
Do to this infernal blatherskite,
But where, oh! where is the cash
we paid?
Where, ob! where are the locks
he said
Would return egain to our lockiess
Where, oh! where is the “son of
a cun”
That gulled usg g 0 and stole our mun?
Where’s our “mun,” our hair,
* that lout?
Echo answers ,““All slid out.”
