When France looks buck to May, 1871, we
don’t blame her one bit for demanding that
Germany pay the last farthing.
"Do you scrap about the family money : ’

we scrap, it is always about something very
real. We never scrap about nothing.
Atlanta is beset with politicians who are
more interested in defecating one another
than in the city's welfare. This is always
unfortunate for any city or town.
The young man is always calculating on
making as great a success, financially, in ten
years as it took his father a lifetime to ac
It is rumored that Commerce, over in Jack

for Mayor in the next election. If this ru

Barrow has two magnificent roads, the
equal of any that can lie found anywhere.
They are the roads from Winder to the \\ ni

We believe the Greensboro Herald-Journal
is right when it says that business will re
sume its pre-war speed and activity when
all prices are put on a level, one with the
other. The price of all manufactured prod
ucts nre entirely out of proportion with the
raw products. The buying power of the pr
dueers of raw products is so restricted under
present conditions that stagnation is bound
to continue until all prices are put on a par
ity, just as the Herald-Journal says.
Ninth District Editors to
All the editors and publishers of the Ninth
Congressional District have been requested
to meet in Gainesville, Ga., at noon, on Fri
day, May2oth, for the purpose of organizing
a Press Association for this district. Every
newspaper in the district ought to have u
representative at this meeting. We expect
to attend and hope that we may meet all the
boys in the district.
Press Boys Welcomed to
In regard to the meeting of the editors of
the Ninth Congressional District which will
be held in Gainesville Friday, May 20th, we
have received the following appreciated tel

Editor Winchester, of the Social Circle
New Era, is coming around alright on the
question of government ownership or gov
ernment control of public utilities. Give him
time and he will always get right oil all pub
lic questions. Here is what lie says about
government ownership and it is a correct
statement of the question, according to our
way of thinking:
"To say the least, this paper is not being
swept off its feet, by the Municipal League
movement of Georgia. Which is better, to
have our public utilities owned by a corpora
tion and controlled by capable, selected men,
working for a salary, or have them owned
by the state and controlled by a gang of pol
iticians working for office? The public is
better off with its utilities worked as a bus
iness than for them to lie made a foot-ball
for politicians. The Georgia Railway and
Power Company comes nearer giving this
plant value received than any concern with
which we deal." . ,

Much Cotton Being Planted
Cotton is a source of worry and disap
pointment from the time the seed is put
In the ground until it is sold. It is very
susceptible to all weather conditions and
the planter can never feel sure as to the out
come of liis operations. Just now there is
much cotton being planted over and others
are trying to secure stands by replanting the
missing places by hand. The cool weather
of the past weeks lias caused much of the
cotton plants to die, and unless a good stand
oiin be secured the yield is small and un
profitable. Cotton growing is a gambling
proposition; you win occasionally; you lose
often, and no one can count on riding into
prosperity on the cotton plant. We believe
the farmers of this section have about made
up their minds to depend less upon it and to
plant more food crops.
Federated Club Work.
The Woman's Federated clubs of the Niutn
Congressional district held one of the most
interesting and important meetings of recent
yearsdn this city this week. The work of
the various clubs, sponsored by the women
of our country, is growing, and the civic life
of our communities, w ill be largely beneiitted
and uplifted by their efforts. The reports of
the various clubs over the district made at
the meeting this week show the splendid
work that is being fostered by these ener
getic, and zealous women. Such subjects as
public health, literature and library exten
sion, school and home improvement, subjects
that vitally affect our welfare and prosperity,
are being discussed in these conventions, and
plans are made for putting into effect these
progressive ideas and visions.
There is not a finer body of women in all
the state than we have here in the Ninth dis
trict and we are glad to know that they are
standing right up at the top in the greut
work in which they are engaged.
Among nil the days set apart upon which
we commemorate heroic deeds or the bene
factors of our race, none should have a high

What hallowed memories, what holy in
ti uenees, infinite tenderness} encircle with
gilded glory this divinely inspired and God
glvcu name. Inimitable in her devotions and
matchless in her never-dying love for her off
spring, she has ever been the mightiest power
on earth. Injured childhood flies to her
bosom for refuge, and the weeping infant
presses its face upon the mother’s breast.
All classes, from the pauper to the king,
yield their willing homage to her resistless
influence. She has molded kingdoms, rev
olutionized empires and peopled earth and
heaven. She was “Inst at the cross, first at
the sepulcher, and the only one to bathe the
Master’s feet in tears.”
“Make ink of tears and molten gems,
And sunbeams mixed together,
With golden pen and holy hand,
Go, write the name of mother!
High o’er towering mountains,
Beyond the starry skies, , k
Write it on every glittering crown
That's worn in Paradise.
On mountains high, in valleys low,
In every land and clime,
On every throbbing human heart,
That blessed name enshrine.

Take childhood’s lights and Manhood’s
Celestial canvass given,
In beauty trace that name and face,
And hang it up in heaven.
Thence upward to the great white throne,
Midst music soft aiid sweet.
Thank Jesus for that precious name,
And write it at his feet.”
