J. T. Strange & Company’s
FALL SHOWING WAS A SIGNAL SUCCESS. - '
Miss Aderholt, Miss-Arnold and Miss Wills wear smiles that bespeak the
many expressions of satisfied customers with the array of bonnets sold Thurs
day, Friday and Saturday of last week. Many ladies expressed their opinions
with emphasis, saying: ‘‘Strange’s will show favorably with the great metropolitan
stores.” We appreciate their applaud and feel that the many sales and expres
sions of approval more than repay us for our labors.

Mr. 5. W. Arnold Loses House and
Most of Its Gontents.
The boy* of the volunteer fire de
partment little thought they would
have a try-out at fighting a real fire
within two clays after their organi
zation as a company, and that, too,
before they had teen equipped, but
this is what happened to them.
About 12 o’clock Thursday night
the residence of Mr. S W. Arnold
was discovered to be in a blaze, the
whole rear of the dwelling being
aflame before the alarm was given,
and the dry structure burned like
so much kindling. By the prompt
action of many friends Mr. Arnold
succeeded in saving a portion of his
household effects, but the majority
of the furniture and articles dear
to the family through association of
by-gone days were consumed. Mr.
Arnold carried no insurance, and
sustained a loss of about SI,OOO.
Besides Mr. Arnold’s effects, Rev.
DeWe ese had his handsome library
stored in the dwelling, and suffered
its,entire loss. Chief Ferguson and
his men were handicapped at the
outset, their line of hose being lock
ed in the Seaboard Air Line depot
at the time, but he made a record
run to the cotton mill in an auto
and secured several hundred feet of
hose and was soon back at the
fire ai.d had two streams playing
on the adjoing building. But for

iSIT NEC-RO DSSFR4NCHSSEMENT ?
As J. N. Ross has an article in
this t issue terming the so-called
negro disfranchisement law trashy,
ill-advised legislation, we give the
five paragraphs of article four of
the act describing qualifications
for electors as passed up by the
legislature for ratification. Read
and judge for yourself the fruits of
1. All persons who have honorbly
served in the land or naval forces of
the United States in the Revolutionary
war, or in the war of 1812, or in the
war with Mexico, or in any war .with
the Indians, or in the war between the
states, or in the WAR WITH SPAIN,
or who honorably served in the land or
naval forces of the Confederate States,
or of the <tate of Georgia in the war
between the states, or
2. All persons lawfully descended
from those embraced in the classes
enumerated in the subdivision next
3. AlLpersons WHO ARE OF GOOD
CHARADTER, and understand the
duties and obligations of citizenship
under a republican form of govern
4. All persons who can correctly
read in the English language ANY
PARAGRAPH of the constitution of
the United States OR OF THIS STATE
and correctly write the same in the
English language when read to them
by ANY ONE OF the registrars, and
all persons who solely, because of
physical disability, unable to com
ply with the above requirements, but
who can UNDERSTAND and give a
REASONABLE interpretation of any
paragraph of the Constitution of the
United States or of this state, that
may be read to them by ANY ONE OF
the registrars; or
5. Any person who is the owner in
good faith in his own right of at least
FORTY ACRES OF LAND situated in
this state, upon which he resides, or is
the owner in good faith in his own
right of property, situated in the state
and assessed for taxation at the value
of five hundred dollars.
Is it negro disfranchisement or a
property qualification clouded with
meaningless educational claptrap?
Who is to he the judge of
character and the correct reading
of ANV PARAGRAPH? Why not
call it German and Jew disfran
chisement? Great will he the fun
when the registrars start their
schools teaching the voters how to
read and write ANY PARAGRAPH
of the constitution of the state sat
isfactorily to ANY ONE of the reg
istrars, and the courts will be kept
busy deciding the character and
learning of the citizens of Georgia.

TWO REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES.
Mr. Bryan said in a -hort talk at
“There is another issue of thii*
campaign, and] that > whether I
am running against one man or two
men. I started out to run against
Mr. Taft on the ground that they
had picked a man big enough and
able to defend himself. Now 1 find
thlf president comes in and takes
the lead in this fight. I don’t object
to it, but I do believe it is a de
gradation *f the office of president
to make that office, which belongs
to all the people, a party asset in
the hands of one party.
‘‘l insist that the American
people have a right to elect their
own officials without dictation from
Washington, and I ask the president
after he has nominated Mr. Taft to
stand aside and let us fight it out
