Entered at the Post Office at Gumming, Ga., August 10th, 1910, as mail matter of the second class. Advertising rates made known upon application. Cumming, Ga., July 6th 1917. Cotton continues on the rise in price. Let her go. The Chero Cola Cos. has opened up a large bottling plant at Canton. Lest you forget, Floyd Blackwell of t anton, is the state senator from our district. If our farmers can make a good crop of cotton we don’t care how high it goes in price. The National guard will be the next troops sent to France. Won’t be long until we will know who is con scripted into the army. Several bills were introduced in the state senate the second day of the term. Three hundred citizens of Buford subscribed liberally to the Red Cross fund. John Holder won out as Speaker of the House. John’s a politican. Burwell wasn’t in it when the voting time came. He saw his finish and Quit. The politics of the state for next year will be slated during the next fifty days. The Georgia Legislaure is in session. Let us make the best of it we can. Very few people are coming to our little town for the past several weeks. They are at work in the field is the reason. Money makes the mare go. That’s the reas on the mare can not keep up with a ford these days. Next Monday week is the meeting of the newspaper editors of the state at Thomasville. We shall try to go. Corn is coming right on and growing pretty. The little cotton is growing some since the warm weather began. Some sections of the county report that they have had no rain to amount to anything in sev eral weeks. “There’s music in the air,” says an exchange. If it is one of these dogon graphophones it can stay in the air so far as we are concerned. More than two thousand citizens of Hall coun ty failed to return their property for taxation this year. More than half million people have volun teered in the army, navy and national guard in the last three months. The first bale of 1917 cotton sold in Texas last week for $925.00. That’s some price for a bale of cotton. If you have the money to spare now would be a good time to pay for your paper if your sub scription is out. Bro. Rucker of the Free Press is getting in bad with the preachers on account of his fav oring the all-day singing. If people want to have all day singings, let 'em have 'em. We would like for the legislature to pass a law making it a felony to dun a newspaper ed itor during the months of July, August and Sep tember. There will be more money in circulation this fall than there has been in many a moon, but it won’t buy much unless the price of stuff takes a tumble. Col. Coleman of Canton comes out in the Cherokee Advance with a statement that the conscript law is a good hing for the farming people, and gives some logical reasons to sup port his statement. SURELY THIS IS THE LAST Of course the mother-in-law joke is not exactly new, but this one is not half bad. It was sent to Capt. Chari*-;-' A. Lyerly by a Mississippi friend It is all in the attached telegrams: Gulport, Miss., May 25, 1917. Thomas Jones, Jackson, Miss. Mother-in-law drowned in lake. Body cov ered with shrimp. Wire instructions. Will Smith Jackson Miss., May 26, 1917. Will Smith, Gulport, Miss. Telegram received. Ship shrimp and reset bait. Tom—Chattanooga Times. We never thought another mother-in-law joke could be perpetrated that would be worth while, but the one above beats all we have ever seen. —Dalton Citizen. The way of the “blind tiger” will be hard in Georgia. Mark our prediction. Gardens a looking pretty good, thank you, but need showers. No use to get mad at an officer for doing his sworn duty. Get mad at him if he don’t. The man who steals meat nowadays is dead bent on cutting down the high cost of living. The allies have already bprrowed over a bil lion dollars from our government.

Four contingents of American soldiers are now n France. Will some good brother please tell us how many soldiers we have over there. The Newnan cotton mills paid a dividend of one hundred per cent last week. That’s a nice sum to divide among the stockholders. Two hundred and thirty three bales of cotton sold at Cordeie one day last week, and brought about thirty thousand dollars. South Georgia peaches are bringing $2.35 a crate. These peaches are said to be the finest in the world. 11. 11. Hogan, an attorney of Thomson, Ga., is under a bond of SIOOO for failure to register on June sth.

A vigorous old lady when asked the secret of her eighty-three years ot health replied: "I never allow myself to fret over things I cannot help. I take a nap, and sometimes two of them, every day. I do not carry my washing, ironing, dressmaking, or bak ing to bed with me; and I try to oil 1 all the friction out of my busy life by an implicit belief that there is a brain and a heart to this great universe, and that I can trust them both.” Small Successes Count. Be satisfied with success in even the smallest matter and think that even suoh a result Is no trifle.—Mar cus Aurelius,
