Thi' wise farmers of Barrow county are sowing
wheat and oats these days.
The wise citizens of Barrow county are doing their
best to pay their debts.
An honest man is still the noblest work of God.
As we r go along the journey of life, what a great
boon is a good friend.
There are fewer bankrupt notices lining published
in the Winder News than in many other papers that
come to this office. Hurrah, for Barrow county.
The editor of the Winder News sincerely appreci
ates the many kind expressions of sympathy that
have come to hint from the brethren of press over
the state. No tiner set of men live* than the Georgia
(editors. It’s a great* privilege to he one of them.
There are some' few people in the world that think
it pays to be dishonest. But they are woefully mis

not bring it to the attention of the papers with whom
On faith in the honesty of the average man has our
whole structure of business dealings Imsui erected. The
business of the world is founded entirely upon credit.
Belief in the ability and willingness of the world to
meet its obligations, keeps the wheels of commerce
turning. Without credit- —without this abiding con
fidence in the inate honesty of mankind our factories
must close down ; our railway trains cease to run ; our
ships to sail the seven seas.
In evading an honest debt, therefore, a man, no mat
tor how hard pressed regardless of how nearly he
can come to justifying his action in his own individual
case, not only rcbs himself of th priceless heritage
of self-respect, but contributes so much as he is able
to a continuance of the present financial depression

his abilities the very foundation stone of our entire
economic structure.—Athens Daily News.

Hit us heavily next year.
Wise men look ahead and see the dangerous things
of life and thereby avoid them; fools walk on blindly
and are destroyed.
The man who is careful about his obligations, and
(struggles to meet them, cannot be put in the ditch.
There are a lot of good, honest people in the world
yet, and they are the ones that must hold things to
Never before has the editor of the Winder News
realised the value of friends.
The “feel" of coming winter is in the air.
Blessed is the man that has a job these times, even
if the pay is not entirely satisfactory, and has sense
enough to stick to it.
Senator Watson and Governor Hardwick are about
to fall out again. When these two begin to maul
each other the fur will fly as it did down in the
The Tenth district in the days of yore.
Id the management of our financial affairs, let us
remember that “a good name is rather to lie chosen
than great riches.”
The farmers down in Greene and Putnam counties
are realizing this year the great mistake they made
in thinking they could make one more crop of cotton
before the boll weevil got in its work. We hope the
farmers of Barrow county will not make this mistake.
