Many new county projects will loom up in this session of the legislature. Governor Harris hAs declined to grant a par don for Mrs. Godbee. Russia will stick to the United States in the great world war. Uncle Sam will whip Germany before you can say skat, is our opinion. Submarine destroyers are the main war weapon needed against Germany. Thirty two British ships were sunk by U-boats last week. Terrible to think about. A large canning factory has been organized and put in operation in Atlanta. There will be lots of fruits and vegetables canned in Forsyth county this year. __ Cotton reached the highest price of the sea son Saturday when it hit 261/oC. The United States government has contract ed for fifty million yards of cotton ducking. The Georgia railroads'have asked for fifteen per cent increase in freight rates. Our government is trying to raise seventy thousand volunteers this week. A Baptist school, to be Lanieh Urii versity, will open in Atlanta September 11th. Hugh Dorsey will become Governor of Geor gia next Saturday. Payments to the government on income tax has reached three hundred and thirty five mil lion dollars. We would be mighty glad to see John Hol der elected Speaker of the House of Represen tatives. Judge Sam L. Olive of Augusta will likely be chosen as president of the state senate with out opposition. Congress has passed the food control bill and forbids the u.ic of grain and other foodstuff sup plis for making liquor. The president of the United States is author ized. under the food control bill, to take over all whiskey on hand for war purposes. A man by Ihe name of Coffin is head of one of the large munition plants. The name is very suggestive. Whiskey drinking is the biggest fool habit in the world. If you use it quit now before it is too fate. It is useless for anyone to try to deal in liquor thinking they will not get caught. The officers will get ‘ern sooner or later. With the meeting of the legislature will like ly come some soft drink bills to hit coca cola. This bill will be introduced for a purpose. _ We welcome the Greensboro Herald-Journal to our exchange table. It is neat and well edited paper.

Fleecing ihe People of lyiolions a Month Herbert Hoover spoke conservatively when he told members of The Senate that in wheat alone speculators have taken fifty million dol lars a month Horn the American public during the last five months. Sixty millions a month would not be excessive estimate. At the low er reckoning, however, we are paying up wards of half a billion dol'ars a year o a wolf ish puck of wheat gamblers,' while thousands of families struggle against ever-increasing odds to get dailjHbread. And if other necessar ies over which speculators and monopolists now hold a price-fixing dictatorship were taken into account, the total tribute which those un scrupulous interests are wringing from the peo ple would exceed the amount of the liberty loan. x The sole beneficiaries of this extortion are the gamblers and monopolists themselves. The farmer does not share in their preposterous gains; in fact, every farmer knows that they are his inveterate foes. Honest merchants and manufacturers are injured almost as much as consumers are by the food gamblers’ game and it is significant indeed that not a single national trade association is opposed to the Food Con trol legislation. The productive interests, whether of field or factory, the interests that sustain the country and make it prosperous, are entitled to protection against those that are sapping the nation’s lifeblood* This woull be true at any time; but it is su premely imperative at a time when America’s security and happiness and very existence as a free nation depend vitally on the effectiveness with which we meet the food requirements of our people, our arfnies and our allies.—Atlanta Journal. Our friend, The Journal, hits the nail on the head in the above editorial. The Journal, like every other paper, Jgome times goes a little wrong in the opinion of some people. We should give them credit for be lieving they are right in their opinions and con victions. We have believed, in fact known, for a long time that the high price of food and everything the people huye to buy, is all caused by spec ulation. This editorial appearing in the Journal, is so near what we believe to be the truth of the vjhole situation, we print it for the benefit of our read ers. Our government needs a cil to see that too much food is not to other countries. This would stop a faminji. __ Thousands of hogs are dying of choleiii in four south Georgia counties. The people pave began the use of serum treatment. . Bishop Candler says that the American people stand more in need of religion than Rutabagas. A twenty inch knife was found on a negro ar rested in Atlanta Saturday night. This coon was evidently loailrid for bear. Brooding over the war caused J. S. Sherman, a farm hand living near Decatur, to commit suicide. The first convention of Georgia Sheriffs will be held at the Red Mens; hall in Atlanta June 29th and 30th. A hot fight will be waged in the coming leg islature on .he bill to abolish the offie of city recorder in the city of Savannah. In his annual report to the legislature, Super intendent Brittian will ask -that women be al lowed to serve on county boards of education. The comptroller of the currency has issued a call for the financial standing of the national banks. Morton Turner, representative from Brooks coi'.nty, will urge thirty day session of the legis lature. Thirty days is really too long for them to stay in session. Judge W. E. Thomas of Valdosta is being prominently mentioned as Judge of the federal dourts ofaSouih Georgia to succeed Judge Lamb din. The net earnings of the Western & Atlantic railroad for the year ending May 1, 1917, a mounted to 5721,416.61. This was some earn ings. A. C.

Oh, how hard it was to give lit tle Jessie up and know that nev er more we could feel the clasp of the little hand and hear her sweet voice again, how sad to stand by the bedside and see the bright blue eyes close to open never agaifi in this world to stand and watch the snow white casket all covered wi£h lovely (lowers lowered in the cold dark grave, to hear the clods fall with a heavy thud up on our darling and to return to our home” so saddened by the death angels visit, where everything seemed to speak of Jessie. She was a loveable child and while God only spared her two short years she had so entwined her self-about our hearts that her going has left them torn and bleeding. She was so sweet about taking her medicine even .o the last. She was sick 9 days and everything that loving hans could do to save her was done but loving parents and kind friends could only go to the riv er brink with our darling Jessie, where she was guided oer by die angels band.

It is hard to give her up but God knows best and he who said “Suffer little children to come unto me,” sent the an gel band to carry little Jesie home, what ever may come in after life and of this we can not tell, we can always remember little Jessie isolate with .our jfles -;ed Savior. Ob how sweet she looked in her coffin dressed in pure white, with the sweetest of smiles upon her little face, none could doubt the perfect rest of our baby. Jessie is gone but not forgot ten. Weep not dear parent re member the Lord giveth and he Lord taketh away. Who was beter fitted for heaven than Jessie and what can lead one near heaven than having little Jessie to call to you to come home? That little voice is si lent nown Those litle hands are still. It has caused our head in grief to bow, but it is the Sav iors will, cheer up weeping lov 3 cl ones, there is a silver lining to" every cloud tho dark and threatening it may seem now, tomorrow the sun will shine more brighter, the birds sing sweeter. Only a few short years you too will list to the song of the boatmans oar, you will cross the river with the boatman pale and your soul will rest on heav en shore when the joys of the glory would burst upon your vision it is then you will meet little Jessie again, and how sweet the meeting who knows but what when death calls you if JessW doesn’t come to bear you home.

Well it looked like every bod y was at Gumming Sunday. The writer was made to wonder how many of the same crowd would jbe there next June.

I hope all the young men that are not Christians will be before the summer meetings I are over, and ail churches ! ought to go to work to make our I faithful soldier hoys good chris lian boys: Now don't under stand me to say the church can save -folks for it can’t but we know that the preched gospel is the way that we have of cans ing folks to see their lost condi tion.
