many conventions as site can well ac

open her hospitable doors to them.

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
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. Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Pre

After that, my heart and nervous system

to try Hood’s Sarsaparilla. Soon I could
do all my own housework. I have taken
Hood’s Pills with Hood's Sarsaparilla,
and they have done me much good. I
will not be without them. I have taken 13
bottles of Hood’s Sarsaparilla, and through
the blessing of God, it has cured me.

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.

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
“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
“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.—
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
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. ”
