NEWS ITEMS FROM
Gathered From Exchan
ges in Adjoining
Two dozen negroes from Putnam
county lauded in Commerce last Mon
day. They were refugeeing from the
boll weevil regions. They came from
'near Eatontofn. They were hunting
work. They wanted something to eat.
They said they wanted to work for
somebody that had something to eat.
They were not striking for higher
wages. They were willing to accept
almost any sort of work. They wanted
to get a peep at a few nickels. They
say its hard times in the regions from
which they came. The l*oll weevil
came and conquered. There’s nothing
doing down there, they say.
And what does that mean? Does
it mean that we, of this section, are
to suffer the same fate? The farmers
of Putnam county made but little
cotton last year, hull they believed
they could make one more ernp.” They
tried it. and failed. Up to the middle
of last week, there had been only two
btfUs of cotton ginned in that county.
And the crop there is two weeks earlier,
normally, than here.
The question arises: AVill the farmers
of this section try next year to make
one crop, or will they profit by the ex
perience of the Putnam farmers? We
shall see what we shall see.

About thirty-two years ago, l
first saw the “one woman” in all
the world to mo. I had gone to
the little village oT Coleman, Oa.,
in Randolph county, to teach
school. ‘Twas one Sunday morn
ing. I remember it well. I en
tered the church a stranger and
took my place as ;< visitor in one
of the Sunday school classes. Off
to my left and up nearer the
front, was a class of little chil
dren being taught by a young la
dy who was destined to become
the wife of my youth and the com
rade of my life. Her appearance
and demeanor attracted me and
in the course of a few weeks we
became acquainted. This ac
quaintance developed into love,
and on August 2<>tli. I*l*o. the
writer and Miss Eva Zuber stood

country homo in Randolph coun

was to make a good wife and a
good mother. I know she was
both. She was the queen of ray
heart and of our home.
When you reach into the hu
man heart and tear out the sweet
images that have nqstled there
for more than thirty years, there
may l>e some semblance of heal

show the result of the catastro

into my life —a catastrophe.

The following verses written by

With golden pen and holy hand,
Go, write the name of mother.
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 man
