It Is a well known fact, that mosquitoes help to spread contagious diseases and public safety’ demands that they he exterminated. It if a fact well known to the peo ple of Paulding county that, the New Era was one of the most ardunt sup porters Governor Smith had any where. Hut Hon. Jos. M. Brown re ceived the nomination in the Juno primary and wo feel honor bound to support him in the October election. Governoi Smith himself will support Mr. Brown for he considers that by entering the primary lie thereby pledged himself to abldo the result. We Intend to support tho whole tick et nominated, state and county ofll cers, for by voting In the primary we pledged ourselves to do this. THE NEW CONVICT BILL. The extra session of tho legis lature came te a close last Satur day after a v ^ession of 26 days. Besides a special tax on imita tions and substitutes for beer and the establishment of juve nile courts, and one or two other pieces of legislation in some way connected with the convict ques tion, a bill was passed abolishing the lease system. It was only af ter much discussion and many Conferences that, a bill was agreed upon which received a majority of both houses of the general as- s nilily. The governor has sign ed the bill and after March iUst, 1009, the date of the expiration of tho present lease contracts, the lease system in Georgia will come to an end. Under the provisions of the bill every county in the state will be allotted its share of the convicts, but if there are coun ties not desiring convicts the counties wishing more than their share can secure them from out of the number that would other wise go to t|ie counties not using them. It, is also provided that after all the counties wanting the convicts shall have been supplied municipalities can take them at $100 a year. Then in the event all of the convicts are not dis posed of in the ways stated then the ones remaining may be dis posed of as the prison commis sion, with the consent and ap proval as the governor may think best. More stringent rules of supervision than heretotqre ex isting have baen adopted, and some member of the prison com mission is required to visit per sonally every convict camp and county road gang at least once in every Bi* months. It is expected that, the now law will do away with the great evils that have existed under the pres ent system. The tax on substi tutes for beer, etc., is expected to defray the expenses of putting into operation tho new law, The loss of revenue to Ihe state was one of tho chief objections urged to tlie abolition of the lease sys tem. But under the new plan no doubt the convicts will be treated more humanely and by improving the public roads, etc., tho people will doubtless de rive greater benefits than they now do from the hire of the con victs. The Home Tribune-Herald Is mak ing an extra effort towards having tlie Floyd county fair advertised. The fair will lie held from September 201 h to October !lrd. A steer-plowing contest will be held, ami to Ibis “on ly editors and lawyers, and other warpers of the truth, will be lie eligi ble.’’ We should like especially well to he present on tlie day when the numbers of tho t.vo professions - which are arch enemies to the truth —will be there In force to participate in tlie aforesaid contest. The Au gusta Herald thinks tiiat Col. Lind say Johnson, editor o f tho Tribune- Herald lias been practicing for this contest, for the Herald says: “It Inis been reported that every morning at sum ise he has hied him to a new- ground, and while the dew drops were glistering on the grass and the perspiration on his brow, lie naviga ted his plow pulled by his steer among the stumps.” The railroad fare from Dallas to Heine and return will be $1.44) during tho fair. A pleasing, good, high grade, truly flavored, amber colored cup of coffee can be bad—and without tlie realcof- fee danger, or damnge’to health—by simply using Dr. Bhoop’sncw substi tute, called "Health Coffee.” Pure, wholesome, toasted cereals, malt, nuts,etc. make l)r. Hhoop’s Health Coffee both healthful and satisfying. No 20 to 80 minutes tedious boiling. “Made in rt minute.” says Dr. Shoop. If served as coffee, it's taste will even trick an expert. Test it and ste. Mold by E. M. Cooper. To the White Voters of Paulding County. Four years ago tbe democratic executive committee of l’aulding county opened wide tbe doors and invited all qualified white voters, regardless of past politi cal ailiiiations, to participate in a white primary election for the nomination of county otlicers. The invitation was accepted, po litical linos were wiped out, and now for the past three elections we have had the cleanest politics the county has seen in many years. Every white man in tlie countv had a right to become a candidate in the primary and the person receiving the highest vote became the nominee. If any man wanted office why could he not afford to trust his candidacy to the WHITE people? Why wait until the WHITE EEOPLE have spoken and then come out iu opposition their to candidate? Practically the same ruleB have governed the primary in all three of the elections; yet, since the election of June 4th, we have heard from a certain source tlie charge of unfairness. If the rules were uufair, why did not Mr. Independent say so before June lth? And why did Mr. In dependent vote in the primary? Why did Mr. Independent try to get office under the rules in 1004 and 1906 and work so hard for his friends in 1908? Don’t you know, Mr. Independent, that when you took part in the primary that you thereby endorsed its rules? And that when you accepted appoint ment as a delegate to the guber natorial convention you thereby endorsed the power that sent you? Don’t you know that yon are in consistent now to be making charges against it that you know are without foundation. You are blowing hot and cold almost at the sune time. Under the rules governing the primary, every man who voted thereby pledged himself to .sup port the nominees, and if chal lenged was required to swear that e would support the nominees. Certainly then every voter who participated iu the primary must feel honor bound to support the nominees. Had any voter, before the elec tion, stated that he would not be bound by the primary, we all know that he would have been refused the privilege of voting in the primary. Then is not tiik vo ter WHO RKPUSKS TO SUPPORT TIIK NOMINKK GUILTY OP PRACTICING A DKCKPTION ON TIIK VOTER WHO VO TED IN GOOD FAITH? The voter who cast his ballot under a pledge of honor to sup port the uominee and afterward refuses to support the nominee— has not tho voter thereby for feited iiis pledge at the sacrifice of his honor? We are informed that some of the independent candidates not only voted but took active inter est in the primary. We now de sire to ask in all sincerity that if these candidates have broken their pledge of honor bv entering the race against candidates who were nominated at an election in which these independent candi dates participated, can we afford to trust them? We are populists, but wo en tered into this white primary, not as partisans, but as white citizens of Georgia, and pledged our honor to stand by its nomi nees. We shall keep our pledge and sunport the entire ticket, from coroner to the top. We can not afford to do otherwise. We know the populists of this coun ty to be honorable men, and as such we appeal to' them to keep tho pledge and support the men you have helped to nominate. Stand firm! There are princi ples involved-that are more im portant than the election of any man or sec of men. The white primary is the beRt safeguard against corrupt politics. It is now on trial for its life. Shall we stand idly bv and permit a few disgruntled pditicians to defeat our candidates and destroy forever the white primary? If so, il means the return of the disgraceful political conditions that existed a few years ago. The camp-fires will be seen again burning at night surrounded by drunden whites and blacks and all the other nauseating condi- tu#is that existed at ‘that time. E. W. Dkan, J. B. Thomas, A. B.

A Lazy Llvor May bo only a tired liver, or a starved liver. It would be a stupid as well as savage thing to beat a weary or starved Ban becauso lie lagged In his work. So In treating the lagging, torpid liver it is a great mistake to lush it with strong drastic drugs. A torpid liver is but an Indication of an ill-nourished, enfeebled body whoso organs are weary with over work. Start with tho stomach and allied orguni of digestion and nutrition.

The Reason Why You should po business with us is a sim ple question you should ask and have an swered: “Is the Commercial.- Savings Bank a good bank, a SAFE bank, and a DESIRABLE bank to do business with?” Ask Mr. E. Davis, the President Ask Mr. W. F. Meek, the Vice-Pres. Ask Mr. P. F. Clark, the Cashier. Ask all of our Directors; ask anybody of this town and community who have been doing business with us for a long time; ask the people of standing and credit if we stand for the advancement of our town and community. Help us stand for pro gress; come to see us; smile; “keep a- goin’ ” and we will all be happy this year. P. F. CLARK, CASHIER Death of a Good Woman. Mrs. W. A. (Jole died at her home on Main street Friday night after an illness of two weeks. She is survived by her husband, Mr. W. A. Cole, and a larg% fam ily of children. Tho remains were interred at FriendshiD church. Rev. J. H. Williams of this city conducted the funeral. We extend to the grief-strick en family our sympathy. After a comparatively long, busy and useful lifo this good woman died as she had lived— honored, trusted and loved. She reared her own monument while she lived in tbe 1 earts of all who knew her. Her life was com pleted if work all done and well done constitutes completion. Her Christian life was beautiful from its beginning to its close, and through all the vicissitudes and sorrows that she met in the. way, her faith in God never wavered. But she has left us and today the autumn leaves fall upon another grave that hides from our sight all that is mortal of a true and noble woman. Our School. It will doubtless be interesting to the citizens to know how our school has advanced in attend ance within the past few years. Here are the figures as given us by Prof. Ezzard who has watched closely and zealously every advance it lias made since he was first elected principal: On the opening day of school ia Sept., 1903, there were pres ent 102; on the same day in Sept., 1904, 161; on the first day of school 1905, 156; and the first day 1906, 158; on the first day 1907, 174; and on the first day 1908, 189. These figures show a gradual gain each year for the past six. For Salk—Fourth interest in Spinks Bottling Works. A bar gain for some one to buy interest in good business. G. J. Spinks, 114 N.
