Thk president’s Cuban sentiments need a good tonic. There's lots of room in the national jails for Ilavemeyer. Mr. McKinley admits that there is suffering in Cuba, but he doesn’t ex plain the cause of it. Tun special edition of The Times will be one of the best ever issued in Georgia. Oscar Wilde says the public will hear from him again. The public has already heard too much of Oscar for Oscar’s good. Roland Reed is having great sport with tlie cross-examining lawyers in his damage suit at Macon. These com edians will have their little joke. Special Commissioner Collins is being wined and dined by the Spanish social clubs of Havana. It is to be hoped that Collins will not forget his mission. The druggists will meet in Bruns wick next year. This suggests that, in view of the Oglethorpe bi-centen nial, Brunswick should engage as many conventions as site can well ac commodate for next summer. The Georgia druggists are a splendid set of men and Brunswick will be glad to open her hospitable doors to them. The wordy Mr. Brann, who gets out that amusing sheet entitled “The Iconoclast,” at Waco, 'Texas, takes a jaundiced view of the poets, lie writes: “We already have too many poets in proportion to the number of our plowmen—too many mauls riotii g in rhythm and too few teaching an oviparious lien how to utilize a plug hat.” Broker Chapman was driven to jail in a private carriage, met Ht the door with cringing obeisance by the jailor and bis retinue, and escorted into a comfortable apartment elaborately furnished, which will serve as his “cell.” He has a private chef, will be allowed all the luxuries lie wishes to pay tor, and can receive visits from his friends at any time. His thirty days “in prison” will be but a delight fuL.period of rest from bis business duties. TO ADVERTISERS. The George P. Rowell company of New York, the leading advertising au thorities of the country, give this ad vice to those who want to reach the public: “ The best advertising medium is the daily paper. The best advertisement is the one that tells what you want to say in the fewest and plainest words. So display it that it will catch the eye. Insert it in the best daily paper—mind you—the best.” The sensible merchant will he prompt to heed this advice and bring his advertisement to The Times. TIME FOR WORK. The Oglethorpe bi-centeunial pro ject has attracted considerable atten tion throughout tlie state. All are agreed that Georgia could do nothing better than unite, next year, in a cel ebration in honor of the illustrious founder of. this commonwealth. The Times hopes that Brunswick will be prompt to take steps toward arranging this celebration. As has been shown, this city is, in every re spect, the most appropriate place for its observance, and the citizens should join together in a united effort for the benelitof their town. Organization should be accomplish ed at a very early date. The energetic business men of the city should take hold of the matter at once. It rests with us to show that we can do some thing. A SEROUS MATTER- The petition to save Lowry’s neck from the noose will no doubt have many signers in Brunswick. The in direct nature of the evidence which convicted him, the demeanor o? the man, the strong possibility that the law may be making a terrible mistake —all these circumstances should be impressed upon the governor in behalf of the old fellow who now stands in the shadow of the gallows. The peculiar constitution of the av erage petit jury was never more forci bly illustrated than in the murder trials which occurrtd at the last term of Glynn superior court. In one case, that of Lowry, there was no direct evi dence of the killing. No one saw the shot tired. There was only the uncor roborated statement of the murdered .man, made sometime before his death, and the evidence, also uncorroborated, of remarks made by Lowry, after the shooting took place. The other case was that of a St. Simon negro who walked into a store and shot down the proprietor. There were eye witnesses to this crime. It was with out a palliating circumstance. Lowry got the death penalty; the negro was recommended to mercy. Great care should be taken in tlie case of (his friendless and homeless old man that justice does not outstrip herself in her eagerness to execute the sentence of the law. Carelessness in girlhood causes the greatest suffering and unhappiness in after life. Little irregularities and weaknesses in girls should be looked after promptly and treatment given at once.

Cresesnf Bicycles. THE CRESCENT IS A PERFECT WHEEL AT THE RIGHT PRICE. It* reputation has been won by its merit. You will be proud to compare it with any wheel made, and you will know that your neighbor paid just the same price for his Crescent as you did. Western Wheel Works Chicago—New York A NEW DISCOVERY by the SHAKERS, For more than a hundred years the Mount Lebanon Shakers have studied the cultivation of medecina! plants and sought to extract from them their healing essences. Their labor has not been spent in vain. They have made a discovery that will prove a blessing to mankind. It consists of a cordial that causes immediate relief in cases of indigestion. The importance of this discovery will be apparent when we realize that nearly nine-tenths of our suffering are caused by dyspepsia and indigestion. Nearly every person you meet has this digestive trouble in some of its varied forms—sick head ache, distress after eating, palpitation of the heart, etc., are but symptoms of indigestion. To relieve these suffer ings haß been the study of the Shakers ami they have succeeded. The reason the Shaker Digestive Cordial has such an immediate and salutary sheet is that it causes the food eaten to be di gested, for it is the undigested food that causes the distress. The Cordial causes ihe food to be digested before there is time for it to ferment and sour on the stomach. When the food is so digested it gives strength and vigor to the feeble body, makes one feel bright and cheerful, and makes one gain in tlesh. The Digestive Cordial is so prompt in its action that the very lirst dose will have a perceptibly favorable re sult. It gives immediate relief. Every druggist has been sent a sup ply of handsome Donkey Puzzle Books, and a copy may be bad for the asking. It tells all about the Cordial as well as Laxol, the new castor oil. Try a twenty-five cent bottle of Di gestive Cdrdial and see what it will do for you. Waycross And Brunswick. Mr. VV. B. Williford, master of con struction for the Valdosta Southern Telephone and Telegraph company, and who has just completed the con struction of the line to Brunswick from Jesup, arrived yesterday in the city, aud will soon begin work on the Savannah extension.

A Joke on tlie Jokers. “I have a friend over at my homo town in Wisconsin, ” told a drummer who regularly conies to Detroit, “that was elected to congress before he ever knew he was a candidate. “You know what a complete political whirl things took in 1890. In our dis trict the fellows of my faith had just been going through the form of nom inating and voting for years. Not one of our candidates ever got a turn at the public crib. It was a standing joke, but we were too proud to abandon our or ganization. I’ll not give his real name, but call him Jim Huff. He was as big hearted a fellow as ever lived, cheery as a May morning and a born joker. That summer he had gone to South America to* do some prospecting, and we heard from him only about once in two months. “When we held our convention, some of us thought it would be a good one on Jim to name him for congress while be was not there to protect himself. We did so, and just to keep the sport going we got out posters and filled the papers with opinions of Jim that landed him to the skies. We committed him to all kinds of reforms, attributed to him all the qualities desirable in a statesman, boasted of his irresistible eloquence and lamented the fact that temporary ill ness kept him away from home. The fact was that he was as hearty as a lo comotive. “When the returns came iu and show ed that Jim was elected, we were the worst fooled lot of fellows you ever saw and were as rattled as a brood of chick ens with a hawk fluttering overit. We organized an exploring committee of three to And Jim and notify him. When we did find him, way down in Peru, he just gave us the laugh, and the district had to hold a special election.”—De troit Free Press. Some Ex -Senators. There was a remarkable array of es senators on the floor of the senate. Here is the list: Ex-Senator Paddock of Ne braska, ex-Senator Bruce of Mississippi, ex-Senator Hunton of Virginia, ex-Sen utor Clayton of Arkansas, ex-Senator Corbett of Oregon, ex-Senator Sanders of Montana, ex-Senator Kellogg of Lou isiana, ex-Senator Pugh of Alabama, ex-Senator Mitchell of Oregon, ex-Sen ator Hiscock of New York, ex-Senator Fowler of Tennessee and ex-Senator Ed munds of Vermont. An extensive page in history is covered by these names, reaching away back over a quarter of a century to the stirring clays when Pres ident Johnson was impeached. Senator Fowler voted against conviction. Sen ator Corbett, now in his seventy-first year, is another old timer. Kellogg and Clayton are reminders of the reconstruc tion days, aud it was rather interesting to note how the friction of that period has disappeared, for Clayton, the one armed Arkansas Republican, and Sen ator Berry, the one legged Arkansas Democrat, hobnobbed socially and in deep conference together on a sofa.— Washington Post. Munchausen* Many a reader of the factitious ad ventures of the famous hero of the “Munchausenaid” (which was first published in English at Oxford during the lifetime of this prince of all liars) has no conception that the hero was a real person. Baron Hieronymus Karl Friedrich von Munchausen was a Han overian nobleman, a subject of our first three Georges. He was born in 1720 and died in 1797. He took service in a Rus sian cavalry regiment, but retired in old age to his ancestral estate at Boden yverder, in Hanover, where ho became notorious for the magnificent lies about his military adventures with which he used to entertain his neighbors at his hospitable board. A collection of these stories, entitled ‘Vademecum furlustige Leute, ’ was published at Berlin in 1781, without the Baron’s permission. The English work, ‘Baron Munchausen’s Narrative cf His Marvelous Travels and Campaigns In Russia, ’ was an expan sion and improvement of the Berlin col lection.—English Exchange. A .Confusion of Names. Although Scotia is now known to mean Scotland, it once was the name of Ireland. Two centuries before the birth of Christ Ireland was known to the Greeks as Juveuea. Cassar called it Hi bernia, as did also Ptolemy in bis map of that island. It is said the Phoeni cians first gave Ireland the name of Hi bernia, meaning thereby “utmost or last habitation.” for beyond that land westward the Phoenicians never extend ed their voyages. Toward the decline cf the Roman empire the country began to be called Scoria. a name retained by the liiuha■ writers until the eleventh century, when the name Scotia, having passed to modern sooiinud, the ancient name of Hibernia began to be again used.—San ! nan : -to Chronicle. Hidi Men iud Debt* The lc*e J dgc Asa Packer believed that a rich man ought to be in debt, be cause it helped hint maintain his cred it. “Were I,” said he, “to wipeout my indebtedness and at some future time see an opportunity to make a large sum of money and attempt to borrow, every body would marvel and say Judge Pack er was borrowing money. As it is I can borrow almost any amount and no ques tions are asked or comments made. ” fetTHERN MFGCI pi mi p p Made to ° rder * Largest and —* 1 U l\C complete line of Wank books and FRAMES school books St--. 11.
