The financial condition of affairs has
been such as to force everybody to be
careful iu their buying and to get
goods at the very cheapest price pos
sible. Tin* great sale that the J. T.
Strange Company lias been conducting
iu this city during the past days has
met the demands of the public along
this line thoroughly. The wonderful
bargains that they have given to tilt'
people has stirred this entire section
and their sale of goods has been phe
iiouk ual. Goods by the thousands dol

AFTER TWO WEEKS
Barrow Superior Court adjourned
last Friday after, two weeks’ session in
.which a great amount of business was
transacted. Many cases were disposed
of. The grand jury had much business
before them for consideration. We un
derstand that no true bill was return
ed against anybody in connection with
the I foster killing case. The matter
was investigated by the grand jury but
they were not able to get enough evi
dence against anyone to find a bill.Of
course we cannot tell anything about
the investigation as that body was un
der oath not to divulge any of their
proceedings. However, they were all
good representative men of the county
and we feel sure they did everything iu
their power to go to the bottom of the
killing. We do not know what further
will be done in the ease.

IS A MAN BIGGER
THAN BOLL WEEVIL?
Some Things We Should
All Know About Our
(By L. W. Collins)
The Athens Chamber of Commerce
called together this week a group of the
leading farmers of Clarke county with
the business men of the city and gave
out a program that ought to lie in the
hands of every man in Barrow county.
Dr. Soule, of the State Agricultural
college, and others, among them suc
cessful farmers, gave facts and figures
that fairly took our breath away. We
went there prepared to hear more talk
of coming calamity, and came away
feeling that the Millenium for North
Georgia was just around the corner. I
want to give just a few of the facts
that 1. for one, did not know, facts that
ought to be known, and that ought to
be investigated 1 think that it would
hearten us so that every business man
and farmer in Barrow county would
want to get together and help make
this next year, instead of one of fiiian
cßil ruin, one of the best and most
prosperous in our history.
Some of us are just finding out that
we have an agricultural demonstrator
in our county who is working over
time with a spirit of real self-sacrifice
to serve the interests of the county.
We might; have known all these things
long ago if we had been w illing to lis
ten to him. But what these men with
years of effort have not been able to
do, the boll weevil lias done overnight,
and we are all ready to listen now.
First, do you know that in all the
history of the South that the raising of
cotton alone has brought nothing but
want to the average cotton grower?
That we never have broken even when
we consider the labor of women and
children in the fields? That the money
raised even if cotton were Go cents a
pound would not do us any good if it
all had to Ik* spent in importing food
stuffs for a man and beast from out
side tlie state?
Second, do you know that anything
that can be grown anywhere on the
continent (outside of Florida) can be
grown in Barrow county?
Third, do you know that the only far
mer that lias had any real success is the
mail that lives at borne, and rais<>s cot
ton as a surplus crop?
Fourth, do you know that we have
as rich a soil as any part of the world,
and that with alternate crops we could
build up the soil, raise enough hay and
feed for all the cattle we need, and
then realize more than we ever have on
Fifth, do you know (hat with intel
ligent methods of lighting the boil wee
vil and raising enough to cat at home
that South Georgia is prospring again?
Do you know that because middle Geor
gia would not take warning this year
that they are almost in desolation? Do
you know that Barrow county must
take its choice, and must choose quick
Sixth, do you know that next year is
likely to be our worst year unless all
'signs fail, and that we must raise
meat, corn, wheat, potatoes, alfalfa and
dairy products or face actual starva
tion? On the other hand, do you know
that markets arc being provided for
every pound of pork, every grain of
corn, and every potato that can In
grown in this section?
Seventh, do you know that, properly
graded and marketed, if Burrow coun
ty can organize and grow sufficient
quantities of these products that, at
present prices, we could have a year of
In other words, we are assured that
the only way to get a constant market
is to have a constant supply. That
there is a market right now for thou
sands of bushels of corn. That there
iis a great shortage of potatoes. That
we can still grow cotton if wo are wil
ling to use intelligent methods of fight
ing the boll weevil, hut that it is sui
cidal, now under present conditions, to
depend on cotton alone. Thai the time
as come when we must stop saying that
we can'e get together, for the existence
of farmers and business man alike de
pends on this fact that we must get to
It is worth considering. D-t us ask
Mr. Robertson for the facts. The Ag
ricultural College at Athens has ex
perts at work who are authorities on
tho subject, and who have examined
the situation thoroughly. On the com
ing Monday there is to be a meeting of
IN THE COUNTY.
The election to determine whether or
not lKinds shall be issued by Barrow
county for the purpose of completing
the court house was held last Saturday.
While the voting was light it is thought
that by the time the registered list is
properly purged that the bonds will
carry. There were 117S votes cast for
bonds and 15 against them. This num
ber lacks just a few votes of being a
majority of all the registered votes of
the county. The list was not purged
lief ore the election, and it is thought
that when the names are removed from
tlie list that ought not be there that
jhe result will be in favor of the elec
tion being valid. Thus matter will be
determined in a few days.
Bonds carried by 45 majority. There
were 336 i registered voters on the list
and as binds received 1178 votes they
carried hy a majority of 45 votes.
