Heavy Rains in Northern and Middle Georgia Have Done the Crops Much Good. The general summary of the reports of Georgia crop conditions, as prepared ny Section Director .i. B. Marbury, is as follows: "Heavy rains fell in numerous northern and middle counties from the 2d to the 4t h and in southern coun ties from the 4t'h to the 6th. wnile in other sections iigat and occasional showers occurred during lue week. The rainfall was beneficial to land and late crops. The soil is now in fine condition for fall plowing and seedjrfg and preparations for this work are under way in various locali ties. Late forage crops, sweet pota toes and late planted turnips are making favorable progress. Fodder gathering has continued in the north ern counties; some that was stacked was injured by the heavy rains. “Cotton continues opening rapidly. The recent rains have been of very little benefit, as plants in many fields were beyond' recovery. In sections where the weather of the week was generally fair picking was rushed and is well advanced, many field's being nearly cleaned. In other districts picking was retarded by the rains and the staple was discolored. There is complaint of scarcity of labor in nu merous counties. New blooms arc scarce except here arm there on bot tom lands, and no top crop is indicat ed. l.ittle or no improvement in the general condition of .lie crop occur red during the week. In a .ew sec tions the outlook is regarded as tne poorest in several vears and as a rule a yieui consiaeraoly peiow aver age is anticipated.” CARD FROM MR. PERRY. Has Something to Say About the Bicycle Ordinance. Mr. Please allow me the use of your paper t o ask a ques..oi which. If answered, will be informa tion for many. ] am informed that a policeman w; stationed-on tne east side of Union street and instructed to arrest any one he saw riding a bicycle on that side of ...e street, N.flf I would like to know why he was not stationed with these same or ders on the west side of the street and not the east side. Those living on the west side have just uie same dangers from riders as those on the east, and they pay just as much taxes, and ! can see no reason why bicycle riders should have to ride only in the west side—and on a side so injurious to wheels on account of the weeds, sand spurs, briars and suckers which our "lively and ener getic city fathers” have allowed to flourish there. It is the west side of Union street that tile policeman should be plan to warn off bicycle riders from the dangers they incur by using that si.ITT instead of the east side and to r> mind them that it was the east side of the street that a previous adminis tration had shelled for their use (at leasU they said so) and taxed the riders to pay for it. I was one of the many that paid a wheel tax and for at very purpose. To oruer rid ers off there now is nothing short of a grand steal. If the present admin istration would pay less attention to the shrieks of the meeting house ami give more heed to the welfare of (lie town they' will lie called blessed. .r. .1. PICRKY.
