The Grouch Hard Hit.
I read with much pleasure your
article in last week’s paper—piece
entitled Apostles of Faith—and it
struck me very forcibly. As I am
on that very track, and aware that
those kind will do to bank on, I will
presume to ask special favor of you
—that you come out in your next is
sue with rhe Man Who Never
Smiles, but is a professional grouch,
' and Wet Blanket, at home and
■ abroad. Because he’s blowed in all
!he feels able to, and his pleasures
1 are no more, owing to financial dis
abilities, he stands by growling at
everybody and everything don’t
want his children to have anything
like other boys. There’s no use in
this, no use in that, and winds up
with “You are not going to do it.”
Burns up their simplest toy—swears
as hard at his children for trivial
offenses as he should for great
things. Bur passes the important
things by, justifying them. Because
he, himself is so full of gall and hate
and spite—all. I suppose, of a mis
spent life, and having lost out, old
age coming ou, only treasures the
bitter, and hopes the sweet, as there
was nothing in Lis soul lofty, pure,
and holy to retain.
Fix this up right —let it go to the
spot—as I know you can.

Any figures for the population of
China must necessarily be more or
less unreliable, inasmuch as the cen
sus man is not much in evidence in
the land of the Celestials. The es
timate, which is probably some
where near correct, is 402,700,000.
As to whether the millions of China
will ever become thoroughly mod
ernized, in the sense that the
Japanese are, remains to be seen.
The Chinaman possesses a plenty of
good sense, and there seems to be
no valid reason why he should not
some time “catch on” to things and
forge ahead with the rest of the folks.
Bob Smith for Re-Election.
The announcement of Mr. R. W.
Smith for re-election as Clerk of the
Superior Court will, be found else
where in this issue of the Eagle.
Mr. Smith has made Hall county an
exemplary clerk. He is efficient,
kind and obliging—always ready to
look up any record you might want
to see, and does it like it was a real
pleasure to him, rather than a favor
that he was granting you.
Bob is a young man of the very
finest business qualifications, and
no mistake can be made by his re
election. And his assistants, Messrs.
Smith and Mincey, are excellent
young men who are always there if
it’s something you want to know in
regard to court house affairs.
The prospects are now that Bob
will have no opposition for the
place, which within itself speaks
well of the manner with which he
has handled the people’s affairs.
Concerning the Apostles of Faith.
I have not seen Mr. Belk in a long
time, but the last time I saw him
he looked like a man that enjoyed
himself in the highest degree. Now
back to the point.
Christ called his twelve disciples
together and gave them power and
authority over all devils, and to
cure diseases, preach the Kingdom
of God, and take nothing for their
journey. It seems that there were
a great number of people, and if
they would not hear, they were to
shake off the dust of their feet for a
witness against them.
Faith comes by hearing, and how
can they 7 call on Him in whom they 7
have not heard? And how
can they hear without a preacher?
And how can they’ preach except
they be sent? Now, it seems like
the Devil has got the long end of
the rope and a down-hill pull, ac
cording to report from the papers.
I am afraid there will be more called
preachers go to Hell than any other
class, if the Constitution tells the
truth, and I guess it does. It says
there are more runaway’ preachers
than any other class.
I may make my letter too long, but
if you can spare the two columns
across your paper to show up how
Mr. Bobbie Wilson smiles, and Mr.
Belk shakes hands, and Jasper
Pierce talks —if they will join me.
and Mr. W. H. Craig will declare
himself a candidate for representa
tive we will roll a wheel for him.
I am not acquainted with Mr. Wil
son, but the Editor gives him credit
for an up-to-date farmer, and Mr.
Belk an up-to-date preacher, and
we want W. H. Craig to represent
the people one time and learn them
to quit making laws when they get
done. And we would like to send
Mr. Turner Quillian along with him
—though we never heard Mr. Quil
lian say a word rbout such a thing.
But the farmer has a right to his
choice, and Mr. Craig and Mr. Quil
lian are the men we are looking for.
Mr. Craig has handled the pen
long enough to do anything he un
dertakes. Come, boys, let’s line up
with them like the cuckleburrs
in a bell-weather’s wool.
Jasper L. Pierce.
There, now! We’re always put
ting our foot in it. When we wrote
that little piece about Jasper we had
no idea he would get mad enough to
w’ant us condemned to the Legisla
ture. But Turner Quillian —he’ll do.

Hon. J.yO. Adams,
