CANDLER AGAINST TOtVSE.
Says |t Will Never Do for tlie Dem
octat* to Recognise Him.
Atlanta, June 6—Gov. Candler, In dis
cussing the action that should be taken by
the Kansas City convention, said It would
never do for the Democrats to recognize
'l'owne In any way, and that It would be
foily to put him on the ticket. He thought
the silver Issue would have a prominent
place In the campaign, but that the over
shadowing Issues would be anti-trust and
antl-lniperlalism, and the extravagance
and corruption of the Republican party.
The Republicans have gone so far wrong
on these latter issues that he thought the
Jteople would make them prominent in the

drlni— I The Prlxe* Awnrded.
Athens, Ga., June 6.—The most brilliant
commencement exercises in the history of
Lucy Cobb Institute came to a cl >se lust
night. The graduation exercises were
brief and simple, bufc none the less at
tractive. The stage was beautifully deco
rated, among other things being the lovely
tapestry painting of Cinderella by Miss
Funnie Meldrim of Savannah.
The graduates were gowned in white
and pink organdie, the full graduates in
white and the eclectics in pink. Hon. P.
W. Meldrim of Savannah deliver'd the
literary address, speaking of “Ponia”
of the “Merchant of Vendee. “ He said in
conclusion: “My real object has been to
impress upon you the great and controlling
thought that Portia is to-day a living,
breathing woman. In the days when,
Venice sat in state, throned on her hun
dred isles, there was but one Por.D, bur*
now beneath skies as bright, there aie
many Portias. Upon every field human I
endeavor brave, virtuous and s;df-reliant
women are waging life's battle. Many of
them bear the cypress while others wear
the laurel. The right of woman to be edu
cated had in Socrates its first 'and ablest
advocate, a right which to-day many of
the foremost universities of the world
recognize, a right that found its per
fect demonstration in the lact
that comparatively recently there went
forth from a great English university a
woman whose paper on the Roman law
was held by the examiners to have been
the ablest ever presented by a student of
either sex in that institution.
If from the study of the life of “Portia,”
there is one lesson more beautiful than
another which I have learned, it is that
though sho had won honor and high
praise standing in the dudal court and
speaking as no one has ever spoken be
fore or since, that she turned away from
the glare and blaze of the fierce public
light that fell full upon her in the scene of
her splendid triumph and with the wo
man's love and the wife’s devotion, went
back to Belmont, to husband and to home.
Yes, fair young Portias, there is a light
in the home, be it ever so humble, that
comes from the throne of God and crowns
the wife and mother with a halo that
sanctifies and glorifies her. All the pomp
and vanity of this world, all the smiles
of throned monarchs, all the admiration
of all the courts is not worth the simple
love of one honest man. And now
’’Fair thoughts and hours attend

IIRATED PIPPIN APPLE CIDER.
This pure cider Is served on steamers on
the American line, and at the Waldorf-As
toria and leading family grocers In New
Paulding's Pippin cider Is made from
the pure Juice of hand picked apples from
his own mill on the premises. It Is abso
lutely pure apple juice, ano all the effer
vescence Is natural, and we guarantee it
to be the choicest cider In the world.
Leading physicians In New York and
Brooklyn recommend this cider to their
patients Its perfect purity is guaranteed.
In Paulding's Pippin elder, only Long Is
land Newton’s Pippins aie used. The ap
ples are left on the trees until late in Oc
tober when they are hand picked and
placed in a dry room to ripen.
Paulding says "the apples are thorough
ly crushed in h‘s own mill and the juice
pressed out and run into sweet clean
casks." The difference between crushing
and grinding apples Is very great.
You will know the difference between
cr shed npp es and ground apples if you
take some stems and chew them, you will
find that bitter taste which Is not with
Paulding's crushed apples. This cider has
not the extreme sweetness of the P.usset
