The agricultural train will visit Ath ens today. It will arrive over the S. A. L- rail- v. ay from LawrenoevlIIe and Winder ui;d will roll Into the yards at the *#A. L. station at 4 o’clock this af ternoon. The train has made thousands or miles. It has gone into more than 120 of the 146 counties In the state; it has been everywhere greeted by hundreds and at many places thou sands of eager people, most of them farmers or thjse interested in agri cultural pursuits. Starting out from Athens, sent out by the Athens institution that is working wonders for Improvement In agricultural matters in the state, Its • orps of teachers and lecturers be ing Athens residents. It Is fitting that Athens shall turn out an even larger aid more enthusiastic gathering to meet and greet the train than any other place—for the vsry reason that It is OUR TRAIN nnd most of us haven't even seen it at a distance. The merchants are requested to dose their placefeof business a Uttle before four o'clock this afternoon and allow their employes the opportunity of meeting the train; the mayor anil several of the city officials will go this morning to Lawrenceville and Winder and return with the train; the others will meet at the city hall this afternoon at 3:30 and with the Cham ber of Commerce nnd the students of the several Institutions in the city a procession of several hundred will be termed to go down nnd welcome the train and its faculty back home.

People of Commerce Are Afraid “Owls” Will Establish a Locker The people are apprehensive at Commerce lest the establishment, or gunlzntlon, and inititutlon of a lodge of the "Order of Owls" will have as n side-line a locker club. The Com- ir.erce News sounds the warning as follows: The Ntws Editorial. An effort to organize a lodge of the Order of Owln In this city baa furnish ed the basis for a deal of speculation end Interest on the part of many of cur best citizens within the last, few days, since it Is known that In some Instances these organizations are ac companied by lookers kept by the or ganization for the benefit of those members of the order who enjoy a so cial drink of whiskey or other intox icants. Leading church members are discusalng the matter freely, and are ii.mewlut exercised on account of the probable opening of a locker in Com merce. We regard such a suspicion us practically unfounded. As a matter of fact. It la the custom of the organ izations of this kind, In the large cities, to operate lockers at the lodge i coma for the accommodation of those member! who desire to patronize them, but even in the event A lodge Is organized' here, we do not antici pate any auch a condition in Com merce. There is too much temperance Mntiment In Commerce to warrant llie introduction of a locker here. This lias been a prohibition town from the beginning, and the overwhelming sen timent here in favor of temperance and sobriety will not now tolerate aueh a thing. Further, the patronage received in a small town like Com merce would not justify the large li cense fee that must be paid before the locker can be installed. The lodge would have to pay the state the sum oi live hundred dollars annually, and with the patronage confined to the members of the order, It could not be made self-attJvafnttig. "gWf~%eslde*. we do not believe the men of this ’city t.ould attempt to force upon the good people of the town A thins of this kind, when it is known that such a step would Incur the displeaaure of sc mtny of the leading men nnd all the good women of the town. The News is not disposed to cross a bridge until we reach It. It Is always well to be forearmed but in this Instance we do not anticipate the Inauguration o' any such a repugnant and hurtful agency In our midst. We have such onfldence In the men of the city to believe that no such thing can exist here with their consent. If it should develop that our contidenre has been misplaced, then the Newa will come out in the open and hew to the line, regardless of the falling of the ehipa, oi the present we wsnt to assure those who are Interested that we be lieve their fearB are unwarranted, and that no such a step will be taken In C ommeree by the men of the city. The Congregation is Said to Have “Mounted Preacher” at Commerce The quarterly conference of the church at Commerce,' Broad street charge, has decided to “mount their tastor in charge" according to a story In the Commerce News of yesterday, which says: That Rev. W. L. Harrison, preacher in charge of Broad street work is ma king good, la evident from many straws that show which way the wind blows. He Is a hard and wise worker. He works seven days in the week, for the people who are committed to his care as a preacher of the gospel. The second quarterly conference of the charge, was held at Mt. Bethel last Saturday, and la said to have been one of the best conferences ever held on the work. Every church was well represented, and the reports made in dicate a healthy growth In all depart ments of church work. Sunday schools have been organized, teachers meet ings are hfeing heldl led by the pastor the missionary assessment for the charge has been paid in full, and the payments to date for the pastor were In advance of any In the history of the charge. Mr. Harrison Is quite a young man, and this Is his first year In the conference, having Joined last fall at Athens. When’he came to Commerce, he had neither script nor purse, and nr horse and buggy. Laat Saturday at the close of the conference the re presentatives of the different church es decided to mount him. A bicycle costs much less than a horse and new buggy and no corn and fodder 1b re- requlred. 80 they decided on a bicycle. The stewards have plans on foot to raise the money, and he will soon be tonipjied. This comes as an expres sion of their good will and confidence, further, as a token of appreciation of tlie excellent work he is doing on (he charge. So that while Mr. Harri- ton is not yet quite up with Rev. .1. \V. Tumlin, of Eiberton who owns an aulo and uses it' to reach his appoint ments, yet Harrison is heading in that direction. The people of Commerce are proud that they have such an ex cellent young man in their midst. NEW HARRIMAN LINE IN NORTHWEST.

An adjourned meeting of the mayor and council was held last night, and besides the passage of the specific tax ordinance many matters were brought, before the council for »e- llon. A number of citizens appeared,be fore the council protesting against the petition for a near beer stand to be located on Jackson street. Later, in the meeting Chairman Young, of the police committee, reported on a number of applications for new stands and of the whole number all were re jected except one on Thomas street. Some changes In the specific tax cidinarce was made from last year. Merchandise brokers will pay fifty .dollars per year instead of twenty- live; real estate and renting agencies will be taxed fifty dollars instead of thirty-five; real estate agents remain the same as last year, thirty-five dol lars. A petition signed by a number of the hackmen asking that the license be fixed the same as laat year, five dollars for one-horie hacks and ten dollars for two-horse hacks, and the privilege of charging fifty cents fare from eleven o'clock p. m„ to 6 o'clock a. m„ and twenty-live cents from ft a. m„ to 11 p. m., was granted. Strict regulations wilt be enforced as to the condition of the hacks and horses and before licenses are Issued, an in spection will, be held by the police committee, and unless the hacks and horses come up to the requirements, the committee will refuse licenses. Council decided not to grant a re newal of near beer licenses at the corner of Broad and Thomas street*. In this building there are two stand*, one for white and one for negroes. At the corner of Broad and College ave nue, known as the book (tore cor ner, was decided agalnat; the one now located In the Commercial hotel building at the corner of Broad street and College avsnse, was declined as also was the one In tba Hodgson- Shackelord building on Clayton street. After the regular order of business hud been dispensed with, council en tered Into the trlfb of appeal case*. Only one case was tried last night, on account of the absence of some of the witnesses. Jske Montgomery was tried on the charge of keeping whiskey on bond for sale, and a ver dict of gvillty was returned. His fine was fixed at two hundred dollars or a sentence of six months on the streets. Other appeal cases were carried over until the next regular meeting ip April. Council then adjourned. At the Request of Women of the State Governor Has Named March the 24th. GRAND NATIONAL CHASE. Liverpool, March 23.—Among all classes of people the usual amount of lively Interest la manifested In tomor row's Grand National Steeplechase, handicap, the mosp. important cross country event in the world. There are sixty-one entries for the event this year, including Jenkintown, last year's winner, and Lutteur III., win ner of the grand national In 1909, and Puhlo, another previous winner. For Americans the race has an especial Interest, owing to the entry of Foxhall Keene’s Precentor JL Today la “Health Day Georgia.” it was- suggested first for a day of general observance In the Mate at a meeting of the Georgia Fed 'ration of Women s Clubs which was being held in Athens, and so Athens, which hat also been emphasizing the uted for a special effort along the lines this special day suggests, is spe cially interested. What two of the leading papers of the state say edl- torlally on the "Health Day," rtiay be Interesting. From the Georgian. By proclamation of the governor Friday, March 24, will be observed in Georgia as Health Day. The occasion will find concrete cel ebratlon in the schools of the state, where suitable exercises will be hell while in Atlanta a special prograi will be presented at the .Auditorium Armory, under the auspices of the cp schools, the State Federation of Wo men'a Clubs, and the Fulton County Medical association, Health la the one topic that In- tlmately concern everybody. It la re celvlng more attention now, than I; ever did in the history of the world. On it Is predicated every advancement of the human race. Healthy people are prosperous peo pie. Healthy people are happy peo- pie. Morality and good government flourish among a healthy people. It Is particularly appropriate that these celebrations should be held ir the schools, and particularly appro, prlate, too, that they should be foster ed by the women and the physicians of the state—a combination'In thr Interest of health and hygiene that cannot be productive of other than highly beneficial reaults For Atlanta particuarly the celebra tlon comes at a most opportune time. The city is aroused on' the subject of health preservation? nnd Is mam fasting It* aroused condition in com mendable efforts’to have aanitary reg ulatlons more, right If enforced and to have the disease-bearing house-fly banished from groceries, bakeries and meat markets. Health day will serve to solidify these efforts and the sentiments that have evqked them and to place the movement upon n firmer and more enduring bases. It should be generally observed.

Many ether rare varieties are included In the collection, some of them valued at high as $2S0 Ach. From the Augusta Chronicle. The governor of Georgia, at the be- hut of club women of the state, haa designated Friday. Mnveh 24, as ‘Health Day," but it la pretty safe to say that half the peopte of the stale not know shat it means. Of Its ether half, lets than half of them will observe it. It Is a good Idea, though, and everybody ought to take part and do a little of the work pro posed for that day. since the benefit Is Individual as well as collective. To somebody with a fair amount of intelligence, somewhere else than In his country, the impression might be that the people over here arc un cleanly. when It becomes necessary for the governor of a state or the may or of a city find it necessary to issue a proclamation to get the people to ‘clean up." And, putting It bluntly. It is just about that: a great many people—too many of them for the good of the physical well-being of any section, as a-matter ot fact—are un cleanly about their premtaea, and delving Into science Is bringing that fact,, and the dirts, to the surface; that'* all there is to It. First,^ the movement began among a number or. cities where spring cleaning” periods were Inaugurated as they were In Au gusta some years ago .and now the movement has merely become state wide in Georgia. “Health Day" means that one dag has been set aside, on which the peo ple of Georgia are asked by their chief executive to rake under the houses, go away back in the corners of lota, where a snatch and a push heretofore has ptssed over the pile ot trash; dig out the old boxes and cans and rags and things; clean up the yard and what's on it as the bed-room or dining room or parlor would be cleaned up, and then spread around a little lime to purify the air and kill the germs. Incidentally, while these things are teing done, If gome little thing comes to mind that could be added to give a touch of beauty to the premises, add it. This clearing up, health movement, though, does not mean to rake out all the trash on the premises and litter ing the street with It—that’s only turning around backward and doing for the street what had beds prev- Another feature of the helpful' ness of the work being,pusued at the State College ot Agriculture Is found In the following announcement which has been Issued by the department ’or the Institution which haa animal husbandry In Its care: Announcement. The State College ot Agriculture haa begun co-operative work In its de partment of animal husbandry which promises to be a considerable help In a practical way to farmers In this locality who bars small herds of milch cows and find some dfOlculty In disposing of the product at a profit during a greater portion of the year.

And If the sidewalk and the glass plot In front of the bouse need attention. It doesn't mean to pass Item by because they are not In the yard; but give them the same atten tion, clean them up a bit, too. If the effort happens to be made In the coun try. where there are no streets, the roadsides or lane in front of the place Is the same aa the streets in the city. Medical science, In Ita search for the case and cure of disease, haa de veloped that fact that pretty nearly all of the human ilia come from germs or microbes of one kind or another, and that the way to minimise and eventually conquer the ailments is to fight the germs and microbes; starve them to death and stamp them out by ■ emoving those conditions on which they grow and multiply. Largely .hat’s what "Health Day'' means, and and then add to It a little study of the care of the Individual, and that's all there is to It. The movement Is a common-sense one, and a good one.
