The recent rains will spoil many a nubbin among
the con fields of this section of the state.
Copious rains have fallen throughout this section
of the state during the last few days and the growing
crops are looking much better.
Every man, woman and child in the United States
will be taxed #B2 to defray the expense of being gov
erned next year. A democracy Is not such a simple
form of government after all.
Atlanta proposes to give the state anew governors
mansion t fthe people will let It stay in that city.
Macon must be putting in some telling licks on the
capital removal question.
Parties were telling us the other day that a no ac
count man out in the country had taken up with a no
. account woman. Then u no account dog came along
and took up with the two. Can any county beat this?
One of the most useful men this section lias ever
sent out is Rev. Frank Jackson, who is now conduct
ing a meeting in this city at the Second Baptist church.
He has been a channel of blessing to thousands of
people all over this section.
The completion of the Harrow county courthouse is
one of the important questions that confront our peo
ple Just now. The present grandjury will doubtless
make some suggestions along this line in their pre
sent iments next week.
There’s as much money in the country as there ever
was; there's as much property In the country as there
ever was; the trouble is that everybody has gotten
seared and nobody has any confidence in anybody.
Everything Is coming around alright to the man who
keeps kicking. , . ,
“You can write all the rules of grammar you need
to know on the back of a postcard,” says Dr. Peyton
Jacobs, holding the chnir of Education ut Mercer
University. Wliat riles ns is that we spent n goodly
portion of our boyhood days trying to master “Smith’s
Grammar,” and now all that time was wasted, if the
good I>r. Jacobs is correct.
The Danger of Gifts
“It is more blessed to give than to receive,” says
Holy Writ, which lias lieen proven true lu the expe
riences of all men who have practiced the art of giv
ing. There is the accumulation of power, strength,
joy In giving. And herein lies its danger. In all
these years we have preached and practiced the vir
tue of giving, aud we have lost sight of the lncaleu
*-.liible 'injury we tnav do the recipient.
'dChile power, strength and Joy come with the giv
ing on the other hand, the recipient loses these* very
attributes in accepting the gift. The giver increases
his power and strength and becomes the master. The
recipient loses power and strength and becomes the
slave. It is dangerous to accept gifts. Far better
to pay for what you get. You are under no obliga
tions. then, and no man can pronounce himself your
We can help each other too much. Too much free
education is dangerous. The things that do us good
all through life are the things that have cost effort
and have called for sacrifice. This is why we think
it wise to make our gifts for education to the common
and high schools. Wake up the hoy or girl; arouse
within them an ambitlou to do things that are worth
while; show them their possibilities in life, and then
withdraw your help. If the elements of success are
in them, they will develop more power and more in
telligence without your help tlinn with it. If the
elements of success an* lacking in their makeup, your
continued help is worthless.
The beggar admits his inferiority in some way the
giver proves his superiority. He can not only take
can of himself but of others. The recipient lacks
something of being a man; the giver is more than
man In our educational system, let’s not Injure our
children, let’s not destroy the attributes that they
so much need to make them strong, virile and suc
cessful men and women.
A Good Legislator
Hon. Boyce Ficklin is a member of the legislature
from Wilkes county. Last Friday when the roll was
being called to ascertain what new laws were in con
templation by the members, many new hills were
proposed. Mr. Ficklin answered to his name as fol
“My constituency has directed me, Mr. Speaker,
to introduce no new legislation this year, to kill all
that is Introduced as far as I can. and to fight for the
repeal of everything I can. Thank you.”
We heartily endorse the position taken by Mr.
Ficklin. We have now too many laws on our statute
books. Many of them are obsolete and useless. A
few laws strictly enforced is what we need.
However, Mr. Ficklin is in the minority. The pres
ent legislature will spend the fifty days in grinding
out new laws and appropriating about twice as
much money ns the income of the state will justify,
adjourn and go hack home, indifferent as to the un
businesslike manner in which the affairs of the state
have been handled. ~
An Interesting Lawsuit
A most Interesting suit has been filed in the Ten
nessee courts at Chattanooga. William Felton is su
ing the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen for dam
ages in the sum of $5,000. He alleges that he is a
former employee of the Southern Railway company,
having been working as a switchman, and that he has
worked for them for six years and earned a daily
wage at the time of his discharge of $0.48. Felton
charges that he lost ids position following a demand
upon his employer for his removal by the trainmen’s
union workers, who refused to work with Felton be
cause he was a non-union man. The trainmen’s un
ion workers threatened to strike if the railroad did
not discharge him. Felton charges that hi.s discharge
was the result of a conspiracy on the part of the
unionists and resulted in hi.s damage in the sum of
the amount sued for.
Two questions are involved in the suit. They are:
Has a non-union laborer, who has lost his job at
tlie instance of organized labor, any remedy at law?
Can an incorporated labor organization be sued for
monetary damages resulting from the loss of a plain
tiff’s position through its efforts?
We think Felton has a good ease, and should a ver
dict against the labor union lie returned, the closed
shop question will be practically settled.
Fight the 801 l Weevil.
The men who are pushing their business and oiug
their best now are the ones that will win. We need
credit now more than ever,and the man who shows
a disposition to be careless or indifferent in the man
agement of his business affairs is sure to lose out for
he will soon find his credit gone. The business world
has confidence in the man who pushes his business
though he may fall behind at times, knowing that he
will finally meet his obligations. It’s the quitter that
the business world turns its hack upon.
It behooves every farmer in this section to fight
the boll weevil with all the energy he can command
just now. You can win if you fight. Y*u will lose
if you do not fight. There are many ways in which
the ravages of the weevil van he minimized. Picking
up the fallen squares helps wonderfully. There are
several weevil traps on the market that are good
devices and they are also valuable helps.
We publish elsewhere in this issue of the News
a formula that is being used in South Georgia to fine
effect. It does not cost much and is worth trying.
As the years pass it becomes harder for the lazy
man to make u living in this world. Things seem to
be made that way. Obstacles are all around us and
only the man who keeps kicking and working aud
trying will win; aud he will win, for the gods of sue
cess are behind him.
Farmers, fight the boll weevil. Watch your fields of
cotton, and begin now to fight. If July is a wet
month, the weevil will ruin you. Don’t wait. Kill
everyone now you can find. It means thousands less
weevills later on.
Is it hot enough for you today? wat him.
The farmers of Barrow county are putting up a
winning tight against the boll weevil.
Tilings around hen* are in great shape for the en
tertainment of the Georgia editors next month in
Washington. And reports from every section of the
state indicate that the boys are coming to a man.
There is just one thing can be said of the coming meet
ing of the press association, and that is it’s going to
he the very best ever.—Washington Reporter.
The Georgiu legislature has a big proposition on its
hands to make about seven million dollars pay ap
propriations of over nine millions. v
Week after next the Georgia editors will be meet
ing at Washington. From there to go to Tybee for
their annual hatha.

reaching out after customers is the one who will

GREAT REVIVAL MEETING
Winder has just experienced a great revival of reli
gion. Many have been brought to know Jesus Christ as
their Savior, and others have been strengthened in spir
itual power, and new resolutions have been made to
wards living a better and a more godly life.
And, now- instead of falling back to old worldly
ideas and notions, let our people make up their minds
that Winder shall be a cleaner and a better Winder re
ligiously than it has ever been before.
Civic pride should control us, and every citizen should
be willing to cooperate with every movement that
makes for the upliftment of Winder.
Let our motto be: “All together for the best town in
Georgia, educationally, religiously and from a business

our best for the benefit of the sick and
needy., We have been organized one
month and have made $09.66 on our

us, for which we are thankful. We
have bought provisions for one farni
ily amounting to $2.30, another $2.60,
another $2.65, another $18.45.At our
first sale we put in an got others to
help us and sent a family $6.75 worth
of provisions, and some of us have
given things from our homes. We still
have a small amount in the treasury,
and we have a call to use it. There
is a home here with the mother very
low, and we are going to help them.
With the Lord’s help we are trying to
