Evidently the people of that town believe in printers' ink. But why such a seatti rat ion? Members of the cabinet and justices of the supreme court of the United States sat. down to a banquet Tuesday at the white house with President Roosevelt and a number of labor loaders, but Sam Uompers was not invited. Famous Lookout Inn, on the crest of Lookout Mountain, near Chattanooga, Tenn., was burned to the ground Tuesday. The incline power-house was badly damaged and the trestle on the face of the bluff was ablaze for a considerable time. Judge Brand has railed the grand jury of (> winnett county to convene at Lawreneeville Monday, Deeepi ber 7th, for one day, to investigate charges of felony against two pris oner-, and to dispose of other mat ters which may lie submitted to them. There is a grievous mistake in the minds of our friends in the north, that Savannah, Augusta and Macon want to see corrected; and that is the idea that they are suburbs of Atlanta. —Elberton Star. And in the mean time Athens is flrow ;oil faster than either one of COUNCIL REVOKES LICENSE. In last week's issue of The News appeared a somewhat salty article iii re/eivnc< to the manner in which • ; !,iWn ;; At a meeting of council held Friday night that hotly revoked the license for the sale of near heer and all kindred drink?. The mayor tells us an ordinance was passed which forbids the sale of any leverage which contains al eohol, It was our intention to reproduce the ordinance a.? passed hy council, but we were not furnished with a copy in time for tin* publication of an article of such length. The ordinance passed hy council took effect Monday morning. There is now no near heer to be had in Winder. UP 10 Ml GRAND JURIES. Since the city fathers have issued the flat which appears in this issue of The News there has been much anxiety expressed hy some as to the outcome of the ordinance. Many citizen.? harken hack to the days of “The Fast Chance and its so-called white hops, just outside the city limits. They tell us how men were hauled into town in wagons, their throats cut from ear to ear, to he sewed up hy physi cian':. Well, if men wish to congregate lor the pm pose of carousal, we know no Fetter place to put them than in a ten-acre lot, where they can tight it out without endanger ing the lives of women and chil dren. • Then, too, we put great reliance in the good old counties of Jackson, Walton and (1 winnett. 'They were not whipped into line hy this near business, nut are prohibition coun of the old school, and their inhabi tants will go mighty slow in renting lands for such purposes. True, this state near-prohibition bill has left, us in the shadow. The line between intoxicants and non intoxicants is so dimly drawn that the chemists can scarcely trace it. There was no such condition dur ing county prohibition. The law was logical and practical. Sim plicity and clarity were its dis tinguishing marks. However that may. he, we opine that few men will l/m* brown-stone fronts by the running, of “speak: eusios’ 5 in the nho\’4j mentioned counties, for the grand juries will j tike small chances with any eon-: coction which makes drunk come. Atlanta now ealims F>thoo'\pop ulation.

Lyle, Winder, - Ga. NEWSPAPER SUPPORE. A newspapw, if it has any, brains, e< nseience and uinsele h ick j of it, must continually decide be-: tween doing its duty and injurirg its pocket. In any position hut that of an editor, the pulic is ab’e to separate the individual home from that of the collective citizen. But if an editor does not please them its at his pockets they aim. ii 1 Tims it is the n< wspapers learn who their friends are. The man wlioj reads the newspaper and admires it all tin* year around, yet gives hi* business support to some other con cern, is not a friend to the newspa per. Admiration alone will not run a newspaper. There are too many men who expect an editor to slave in defense of their pet notions and hobbies, advocate their views against the strongest opposition and coolly withhold the business sup port hy which alone a country newspaper ean live. Talk about a uew.qv per having a public duty to perform, and an editor having to work for his prin ciples is cheap, when others stand back and extend a lukewarm neu trality. The. result, is the "editor may starve while laboring for his principles and the cause of right nod justice, w hich they admire hut do not support. —Walton Tribune. ROWS AND CONVICTS.

The south is a land that has known sorrow; it. is a land that has broken the ashen crust and moisten ed it with its tears: a land starred and riven by the plowshare of war, and billowed with the graves of her dead: but a laud or legend, a land <>f song, a land of hallowed and heroic memories- To that land every di% ~.
