fifth drink of the concoction will j
make a doctor sing.
The prison commission of Geor

Never had any idea there were so
many people who . knew exactly
how a neswspaper should lx- run
until we engaged in the business.
There is a late breach 'ill the Ital
ian royal family over the marriage
of the I hike of Ahruzzi to M iss

Anew temperance drink con
cocted in Thomasville is called
“shoemaker’s ginger.'’ Sorely that’s
the last. —Augusta Herald.
Thomasville. has the sole agency

Mr. ,1. T. brewer, the popular
mail carrier on Monroe route 1,
has quite a. curiosity at his home in
the shape of a cat with six feet and
thirty-four toes. The feet and toes
are perfectly formed and the cat
walks wi h all of them. I’he cat is
about half grown. —Walton Trib

Hon dos. M. brown says: “1 am
glad to encourage others to vote as
i shall vote*- —for the nominees of the
national democratic ticket —Bryan
.tnd Kern. No democrat in Geor
gia can afford to vote .otherwise.”
Air. Brown has treated The Allanta
forehead with its own famous
k ‘siient contempt” and makes the
above statement voluntarily when
accepting an invitation to attend a
Bryan rally at Savannah.
Tlj#.' Butts County Progress given
a half column apology for typo
graphical errors appearing in a pre
vious issue. That’s a dangerous
thing to do, for printer's error? are
like scandal —the move you stir
them the larger they get . We be
lieve it was Henry Grady who on
one occasion wrote the expression,
“battle scarred veterans.” It ap~
pi ared in print “battle scared vet
erans.” In the next issue of The
Constitution Mr* Grady attempted
an apology and was horrified when
he picked up his morning paperand
found the correction read “kittle
scarred veterans.” Thereupon Mr.
Grady wrote one of his greatest
tributes to the Southern Confed
eracy, concluding with the state
ment that if the old soldiers would
call at his office he would explain
Marietta must now be recognized
as the town of celebrities —Nap
j Rucker, Jim Bagwell and Joe Brown
Brother Ross evidently thinks the
new editor is a cross betwt en the
great card writer and the fine ball
twister, but it isn't so. We
never knocked a home run nor
struck ’em out nor killed a govern
or nor caused a panic nor stopped
i one nor made cotton go up nor
1 m.nh it go down.
True, we rooted for Lawrenecville,
I but Winder won, and why is it that
Brother Ross has us mixed up with
'this celebrity business is the mys
Marietta Celebrities! Marietta
lias two judges who are celebrities
of the first water —George (iober,
the retiring judge, and Newt Mor
ris, the new judge. They have
stirred the people of the Blue Ridge
circuit and of all Georgia as have
no other judges in the-state.
And, if Senator St< ve Clay isn't
a celebrity, we would like to know
what it takes to make a celebrity.
Think about how easily be captured
a seat in the I'nitcd States senate
ami bow easily he keeps it- Kor
twenty-one years Georgia has hon
ored him with every position of
t rust Ik has asked for or would ac
cept, and today he is the peer of
any man in the commonwealth.
Brother Ross, if you’ll come up
to Atlanta some of these hot days,
get <>ii one of the big Marietta street,
ears, pull off your bat and enjoy
the line breezes while you fly i
through the hill country to Mariet-j
ta, spend a few hours in our beau-j
tiful Park, you’ll go back wishing
to live here whether you ever do or;
not. Try it! Marietta needs a
red-headed newspaper man to cap
the elima as a city of celebrities. — !
Why, since Jim Bagwell left Law
renW-ville the through train from
Atlanta does not stop until it
reaches Winder. We termed him
a celebrity because we believe he
will prove as live a wire as ever
found connection at Marietta. Had
beard of Clay, but •don’t get The
Congressional Record in exchange,
therefore lie bad slipped our mem
ory for the time.
YES. FIS fUNNY.
“Patronize home institutions,”
cries the country editor from week
to week. “That's right, " says the
merchant, “give it to those who go
to some other town to buy goods.”
Then with his heart filled with
kindness to the loyal editor, lie
sends his job work to Kalamazoo,
or utilizes a piece of wrapping pa
per to write an order on for goods
or send a statement to a customer.
Funny isn't it? —Walton Tribune,
Yes, tis funny. And when the
editor receives literature printed by
the national government at cut
throat prices in competition to bis
business, used by a local merchant
to solicit the patronage of the edi
tor and his force, when bo is per
fectly aware of the yearly deficiency
in the government printing depart
ment, it's hilarous. Such a condi
tion is a great incentive for the little
old weekly paper to give the mail
order chap hallelujah-

The great wizard, Kdison, claims
that sleep D not a necessity hut a

of long standing, then. —Tallapoosa
Humanity does not sleep stand

They’re going to be married very soon,
And that is why they need a table
But when they’re wedded they will
need a set,
And many other things they’ll have to
They'll buy their spoons and likewise

From stores that ADVERTISE to

If there is any place on earth
where bay fever does not thrive,
it ought to advertise itself. —Elber-
That settle-! it. The bright par

“A Paris woman wants a divorce
from her husband because his hair
does not harmonize with her parlor
furniture,’" says the Washington
Herald. She ought to get it. A
man who refuses to dye for the
woman he loves deserves to lose
her. —Augusta Chronicle.
Yes, but a man should be permit

been old gold.
Town To Be Readied And New Maps
Fpon the acceptance of the new
waterworks system by the city
authorities, which will be very
likely immediately on completion,
the Southeastern Tariff Association
will issue' new maps and re-rate the
entire business sections, and the
more congested dwelling districts.
Mr. K. W. Bondurant, of the F.
W. Bondurant General Agency, and
who is Secretary of the local board,
was in Atlanta Tuesday in confer
ence with the association regarding
this matter, and it will in all pro
bility Im* done at a very early date.
This will be of very great im
portance to the property owners,
and of special interest to large in
