LET I S TAKE

The suggestion of the Clarke eoun.
;y grand jury that the pistol toting
evil should be controlled through
the enactment of a law forbidding
the sale and manufacture of pistoh
with barrels less than fifteen inches
long, may seem a bit fantastic on
the face of it, but it seems about

The Macon Telegraph, in discuss
ing this suggestion, some time ago,
made the comment that nothing
could be more effective In reducing
the number of shooting affrays than
this means of preventing the con
cealment of firearms.
Just how to remedy this evil cus
tom is a problem unless we take
some practical course.
There is little doubt that public
opinion is aroused against the pis
tol toter, but as long as the pistol
Is concealed, public opinion doesn’t
get a chance to register its disap
probation. When a man who car

crime swallows up his smaller
What the eye dosen’t see the heart
doesn’t grieve over. It Is impracti

weapons effective, because it Is out
of the spirit of our clvilzatlon

proven so. Both the law’ and pub
lic opinion are cut short of their
power, because, while both prohibit
concealed weapons, they also pro

PAY THE TEACHERS.
The campaign which has been
started by the teachers of Thoma*.
County toward the changing of the
system of paying teachers in the
Slate of Georgia, is bearing fruit.
The committee has received word
that the matter is going to be taken
up and handled by teachers’s organ
izations in every part of ?! e state,
and a start is going tc be made to
demand 'eglslation that will give
these state workers their money
when it is due.
Commenting on a recent statement
that the teachers might pet a part
of what is owing them on year
salary, the Albany HeraM forcibly
The humiliating news is sent out
from Atlanta that, “if nothing hap
pens to prevent,” the school teach
ers of the state will, in a few days,
receive a payment amounting
about 50 per cent, of their unpaid
salaries for 1912. Up to the present
time they have been paid approxi
mately 35 per cent, cf what the
state owes them for services render-
er before the close of the foil term,
should al’ go well, they will receive
the second installment next week,
though the state will still owe them
approximately 15 per cent, of the
amount earned by labor which, at
best, is none too liberally rewarded.
There's no telling, in the light of past
experience and the present condition
of state finances, when th? other 15
per cent, wip he paid.
Isn’t it a shameful stak o? affairs?
Isn’t it humiliating to Georgians that

and richest in the Union—should

next in importance to the public

partments are the very las*, to be
considered. The one is sufficiently
provided with funds for its rucces*-
ful operation, and the other Is given
the rag-tag and hob-tail end of finan
cial consideration. Year after year
the humiliating spectacle Is paraded
in the columns of the press, so that
all the people of the state may un
derstand. and teachers are forced to
borrow from banks or accommodat

CAPTItl TRIPLETT H
HIS ELECTION RATS
For First Time Since Cleveland's
Time, He Wears a Hat au Result
of Election Agreement With
Judge H. W. Hopkins.
Atlanta, Jan. 18.—Th# story of
how Captain John Triplett of Thom-
asvllle has been buying hats for
Judge H. W. Hopkins, also of that
city, ever since the war, came out la
an amusing way here yesterday,
while Captain Triplett was in town.
For the first time since his friends
have known him, aud that has been
many years, Captain Triplett himself
was wearing a brand new hat.
proudly remarked that Judge Hop
kins had bought it for him.
When asked for further explana
tion he recounted how at the dose
of the Civil War, he and Judge Hop
kins, both staunch democrats, had
agreed to bet a hat on each presi
dential election as long as they
lived, and Hopkins, for the snk<
the wager chose the Republican
The result has been that Captain
Triplett has won only three hats,
but lias lost enough to stock the top
shelf of a small store.
Captain Triplett believes that the
tide has turned and is hoping now
that If he lives long enough he will
win all the hate hack, and Judge
Hopkins says he will be delighted if
it turns out that way.

laughed and gave them hack to him,
but later In the day when he counted
