What we Aavertise>e Sell, VVIiat we Sell'Advertise« Ue^  Kruger May Come to America.  Bruseelsj Feb. 21.—It is said in Boer circles that if Messrs. Wolraarans and Wessels, after in-vestigatiäg the situation in the United States, advise Mr. Kruger that a. tour o| tbe United States would be beneficial to the Boer cause the Boer president will over> come bis aversion to a long trip and undertake tbe journey.  Ob9érvatlon& of a Northern Newspa. per Man;^  We take the following extract from a letter written to tbe Rock» land, Maine, Courier-Gazette, by Mr. Orrin J! Dickey, who is at the Piney Woods Hotel for the season:  After seven days' travel from Maine, our party alighted at Tbomasville, Ga., where we are spending tbe Winter, a town of some six thousand inhabitants, supporting a smart little daily paper and altogether a hustling city, having several popular lafge winter hotels and tbe country residences of many prominent northern people. The city may be said to be up-to-date and in ne,arly all lines goods can be purchased as cb'éap ae in the north Tbe city is well supplied witb stores, three banks, telegraph and postal offices, while there are some fine industries on a small scale and good train service.  At the Piney Woods hotel, where tbe writer is registered, some notable people are being enter-tainad, while among the prominent cottage owners may be men tioned these: "Greenwood," owned by Oliver Hazard Payne, of New York, where Payne Whit, ney and bride, who received much notice during the first of the month by their wedding in Washington, are speudiug their honeymoon; Hon. Mark A. Hanna, cottage; A. H. Mason, of Philadelphia; S. R VanDuzer, New York, and many others comparing favorably vvith the most expensive cottages in tbe north.  One notices at a glance tbe peculiar building of all buildings here and that j>hey have no cellar, but are erected on corner posts of brick, which are made in large quantities here and are the only rock to be found in this country One ale'o finds very little but level land, very pliable and requiring considerable dressing, owing to tbe sandy soil. Gardens near each bouse are found witb a rich profusion of flowers and the temperature is very even. The writer will furjaisb a more descriptive letter in a subsequent issue. The social season is now on here and tbe whole country is gay with the city folk who are at their country houses in Tbomasville, where they are enjoying the warm climate of winter. Genuine cake walks are seen here and the northerner who sees a cake walk among tbe negroes of tbd south sees for the first time the "real thing," children dancing here at ¡ages ranging from five years upward.  Counsel and witnesses in the case of George H. StODé against the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company have returned from Savannah. Tbe case was called on Thursday, but was postponed until the 18th ot March, at which time it will be tried.  aeorge Said That Bill Cut the Tree.  Today being Washingtopis birthday brings up the hatchet story. ■ According to tradition, George used hia little hatchet on one of bis father's cherry trees, and when confronted with tbe charge, acknowled tbe offense, saying be could not tell a lie about it. Some impious prevaricator, one who does @ot hesitate to mar the beauty and moral of tbe story has rendered a modern version of the incident. According to this sinful and Regenerate individual, George, when his paternal ancestor took him by tbe collar and was leading him to the back shed where the performance was tli) take place, said;  ♦•Father, I cannot tell a lie. Bill cut that cherry tree."  Vhe Virginia House Sold.  Judge J. S. Montgomery sold a few days ago, the Virginia House, the property of Mr. J. C Parnell, to Mr. W. H. Brandon. And since then be has made a second sale to Mt. Brandon, the latter being half ot the block occupied by the Vir-G[inia bouse. This latter property was owned by Alderman W. B. Hambleton. Prices, it is understood, were satisfactory to both sellers and buyers.  Sam Johnson, tbe white man who skipped out of tbe court bouse some time ago, was brought back here yesterday from Leon county by Mr. Horn. Jobuson was turned over to tbe sheriff, who had him in charge yesterday afternoon awaiting the return of Judge Roddenbery from the country, in order to ascertain the amount of the fine, which, we understand, Mr. Horn is ready to pay.  Mrs. W, L May, of Cincinnati, iei.tha guest of her annt, Mrs. Dr. Culpepper. Mrs. May was Miss Ethel Reid, aod is a daughter of Bob Reid, whose memory is kept green by bis boyhoods friends in Tbomasville, all of whom will have a cordial greeting for his daughter.  It looked pretty bad part of tbe day yesterday for the ladies who got up that entertainment at the M itchéll last Aight.  MARKET RE^RT.  CORRBCTBD DaILY BY SAMDBL W. Mays & Company.  close. Yes.
