SLAVES IK GEOEGIA.
A. McD. "Wilson, a wholesale
merchant of this city, does business
in the remotest parts of Georgia and
with a great many old-time people.
He has a great many customers in
Gilmer county, a small but very
wealthy county in northern Geor
gia, almost on the North Carolina
line. This county is "not well
developed, there being few
towns, and the farmers
are in every instance large
planteis, raising everything they
need at home, very much as they
did before the war. They have
their superintendents, as in olden
times, and in a great many in
stances work the same slaves that
they did before the war servants
that have ministered to the wants
of the family for many years back.
The farmers of this seotion do not
go about much, but stay at home
and look after tho large interests
they have there.
The negroes have never been
usod to anything different to what
they get, passing from slavery into
freedom without scarcely being
aware of the change. They have
known their masters all their lives,
and a feeling of dependence has
been inculcated in them that makes
them loth to leave tho old planta
tion and start life on their own re
sponsibility. They get all they
want to eat and drink and enough
clothes for the exigencies of the
climate, which is very mild, and it
is not to be wondered at that they
still consider themselves the prop
erty of their masters.
Jt was a merchant of one of
the cross-roads stores of Gilmer
that a few days ago sent to Mr.
Wilson, to whom he owed a small
amount, a note offering to give
among other forms of security a
mortgage "one negro man." This
mortgage was tendered to the
cross-roads merchant by one of
the farmers of that county to se
cure a debt due the grocer, and
the grocer indorsed the note and
sent it to Mr. "Wilson, together
with the mortgage, in payment of
the amount due Mr. Wilson. Tho
mortgage was" made in perfeot se
curity. The unhappy negro was
accurately described. In the de
scription his name was given as
Joe Addison, and his age is put at
sixty-five years. The description
closes with these werds: II
came to me by my father, anil ha
been my property for twenty
years." The mortgage bears the
date of July 15, 1885. The maker
of the mortgage evidently lingers
under the impression that the
negro is still his slave, and that he
has the right to buy a loan on his
head as he did before the sixties,
and, what is still more bingular,
the merchant to whom the mort
gage was given did not see any
thing wrong 111 the security
offered. Mr. Wilson returned the
note, together with the mortgage,
saying that ho preferred some
more tangible security. Atlanta,
A REMEDY FOR CHILLI AND
Rochebtkb, N. Y. Dec. 16, 1885.
Four years ago I contracted a
hard cold that settled on my longs.
I had a severe chill, followed jby
high iever, ragingheadche, pain on.
my left side over the lung, and every
time a fit of coughing came on,
which was -every few minutes, it was
terrible to bear the pain. I thought
it meant an attack of pneumonia, as
I went through a. two-month siege of
that disease, and it came on just
the same war. As " it was night I
thought I would wait until morning
before sending for a doctor. Fortu
nately a half-box of Allcock'u
Fobocs Piasters was fonud in 'the
possession of a friend, who boarded
with us. One of these was put on
my throat; two on my chest, and one
on my back over the left shoulder
blade. I then had a hot foot bath.
After again getting into bed, it
,femed but a few minutes when sffl
niy symptoms were relieved; the
skin became quickly moist ; I coughed
only at intervals, and then with
very little 'effort, and in about an
hour I was in a sound sleep, from
which I did not awake until morn
ing. I resumed business in two
days. - H? F. Fletcher.

A Yery Strict Ruling.
Washington, July 17. A gen
eral principle of longstanding and
considerable importauce in the
administration of public land mat
ters is reaffirmed by acting secre
tary Muldrow in his ruling on the
case of James Young's homestead
entry in Salt Lake City. Its pur
port is that no amount of cultiva
tion and improvement, and no
showing of good faith in other re
spects, can atone for lack of act
ual residence on land sought Xo
be secured, and that even actual
residence does not give validity to
a claim, except in so far as it shows
an intention to make such resi
denco permanent bej'ond the ac
quirement of title. Young had
cultivated fifty acres of his claim,
constructed irrigating ditches and
built a house, in which he person
ally lived. His improvements are
valued at from $1,000 to $1,200.
His family remained upon the
place owned by him, half a mile
distant, and it was evidence that
he designed to abandon his claim
as a place of residence as soon as
he had made his title secure. A
contest was made by VanNostrum,
a protessional contestant, who pur
posed gaining some preference
rights and selling them ,out. The
local officers and the commis
sioners decided for Young and
against VanNostrum. Tho acting
secretary orders a modification of
this decision. He says, while Van
Nostrum cannot acquire any rights
in the matter, the government is
not stoppod from action upon in
formation it has gained, and he
directs cancellation of Young's
Decrease of the Salmon Oatch.
Sax Francisco, July 17. The
result of not" putting young fish
into the Sacramento river has been
most disastrous to the salmon
canning interest in the lower
river, the annual catch having
dwindled from 'over 200,000 cases
of four dozen one pound cans each
in 1882 to about 36.000 cases in
18SG. In addition to the decrease
of canning there was also a re
duced amount of salmon salted,
smoked or used in a fresh state.
The value of the canned balmon
taken in tho Sacramento in 1SS2
wad over $900,000, and the indus
try, outside of the operatives in
canneries, employed 1,500 boats
and 4,000 fishermen. The catch
of salmon has now dwindled to
about one-sixth its former num
bers, and the few canning firms
still operating are about to aban
don the business in which they are
