In these modern days we hear a
good deal about adulterated foods and
drugs, short weights, high finance,
commercial exploitation, stock-jobbing
and many other evils. These surface
excrescences do not mean that the

health. This is said because back of
ali these surface indications is a great
body of honorable business and pro

To this class belongs Essig Bros.,
of Atlanta. Essig Bros.’ success in
their business, which is marked, is
due to a thorough knowledge of the
business, combined with the highest
personal character. They have built
up a business extending over a very
wide area. It has been built up sole
ly by the quality of the goods furnish
ed and by the rigid integrity which
has characterized every transaction.
It is true that a business thus manag
ed does not make a quick fortune like
a successful turn in Wall Street, and,
on the other hand, it does not lose
one like an unsuccessful turn in Wall
Street. It does, however, contribute
something of positive and specific val
ue to the community. It sets an ex
ample which is of value. It lives up
to obligations, which is of value, and
it gives to its patrons, in return for
their money, full value received by
honest and prompt service. The man
who conducts a business of this sort
deserves credit. It is all very well to
say that common honesty is a duty,
and that nobody need be praised for
it; but the human animal is so consti
tuted that he appreciates a good word
while he is living. There are too many
post-mortem bouquets in the world.
The good man is strengthened by
words of encouragement, just as the
wicked man is constrained by words
of reproof, and it is just as much our
duty to give the encouraging word to
the good man as it is the word of re
proof to the evil man. Such men as
Essig Bros, are not only a credit to
the business circles of the community,
but are a valuable asset to any city.

Big Preparations Are Being Made
to Attend Sovereign Grand
Lodge Session—Degree Team
Will Attend Session of Georgia
Grand Lodge at Rome.
Piedmont Lodge, 190 I. O. O. F., is
making extensive preparations to at
tend the next session of the sovereign
Grand Lodge, and it goes without say
ing that if this is what they have in
mind—enough said because when this
thriving lodge starts anything, they
come very near carrying it out.
The degree team will attend the
session of the Georgia Grand Lodge
which will be held in Rome this year
and from what the writer can gather,
there is no doubt that they will carry
off the first prize at the session.
“Hurrah for Piedmont.”
Atlanta is long on talk, but short, ex
ceedingly short, on civic performance.
Whose fault is it? Let each man an
swer for himself. Have YOU done
YOUR part toward a betterment of
conditions of the city.

Member of Congress, Who We
Expect to Hear From in
Mr. Howard is looking well, and
says he never felt better. The At-
lantian predicts that ‘‘Bill” will let the
people of his district know he is in
Congress before the close of the pres
ent year. He is young, vigorous and
a smooth mixer, and when he goes af
ter his game, he usually lands it.
LODGE 302, B. OF R. T.
Altoona Lodge 302, B. of R. T., was
the scene of one of the liveliest meet
ings Sunday night held in a long time.
The hall was comfortably filled with
members of the lodge, and several
visitors from out-of-town lodges were
also present. Many good talks were
made during the evening and the ini
tiation of six hefty applicants added
much to the enjoyment of the occa
sion. The delegate, J. T. Seawell, to
the next session of the Grand Lodge
which is to be held in Harrisburg,
Penn., is making all arrangements to
leave here a few days in advance of
the convention in order that he may
visit some of the large cities in the
East before the convention convenes.
Stand at the corner of Pryor and
Alabama streets and look each way;
take a careful survey of the generally
dirty condition of the streets—the
mud in the gutters and the all-around
air of neglect—and consider if it caus
es your “Buzzum” to swell with pride
because you are a citizen of Atlanta,
no mean city. The location mention
ed is in the center. It is much better
than the average.
