Council met Tuesday and AGAIN
decided to widen Pig Tail alley.
Congress met Monday and is now
down to business, killing time and
making provision for holiday
The Winderites who wax warm
and then cold on the Pig Tail alley
proposition, were doubtless Uncom
fortable this morning, if the cold
time was on.
Whether one walks the narrow
way in life or not, if he should die
and be buried in Winder he
must travel the narrow way through
Pig Tail alley to the cemetery-
The meanest man has been found
in many places, but it is our opin
ion that the Griffin man who stole
the communion wine from a church
in that place lias them all beaten
to a frazzle.
“Ncwnan is your charge, go'! do
your dutv,” said Bishop Hendrix
toltev.'R. .1. Pigham, .when 4sg
ham asked to be released of this
charge. Even this bishop showed
a spirit of firmness when dealing
with the under-dog, so to speak.
Representative (iillespie.of Texas,
has introduc'd a hill in the nation

trust has contributed to , state and

In Page county, Virginia, Tues
day, a young brother of Miss Lilly
Gouchenour, the 17-year-old daugh
ter of Daniel Goohenour, applied a
lighted mutch to her clothing with
the remark, “I’ll burn you up.”
The girl was soon enveloped in

With an increase in drunkenness in
Atlanta over the record for last year
of 54 per cent Georgia’s second year
of prohibition is rapidly drawing
to a close If Atlanta’s record in
dicates the condition in other parts
of the state, then one is safe in say
ing that prohibition does not pro
hibit drunkenness at all events.
The /Southern Commercial con
•gress closed its session in Washing
ion Tuesday with its new million
dollar home in Washington no
longer a dream, but an organized
project, financed, signed and sealed.
Lhie hundred men of the south
have each subscribed to it SI,OOO
worth of stock in the Southern
Building Corporation, which is
formed to build a permanent home

Rev. Hugh Wallace, the young
Atlanta Baptist divine who was
willing to die rather than give up
his ideas about close communion,
has undergone a change. The
gentle persuasions of the old line
Baptists have brought the tender
foot to taw, srd last week he was
ordained into the fellowship of this
good denomination. Hugh is now
advertising for a wife- With all
due respect for the cloth, but
wouldn’t Hugh have been a howling
success as press agent for a second -
The tension at which the average
American business man works is
causing brusquenes? to lreeome a
characteristic of our people. Very
few business men are polite in their
every day dealings with each other.
This is not as it should be. Polite
ness pays, and is really very little
trouble after all. A little more
thoughtfulness, a little more care in
dealing with people you meet will
bring good results. It is easy to
Im* polite when you acquire the
habit, just about as easy, in fact as
it is to Ik* brusque and short in your
manner. If a man would stop to
think what a valuable asset the
friendship of other people is he
would doubtless he more suave in
his dealing with his fellowmen. It
very often happens that a person
loses the friendship of others, from
trivial causes, such as failure to
treat them courteously when meet-
ing them. Courtesy is easily ac
quired and when it becomes a habit
easy and natural. Other things
being equal, the average man is
going to bestore his favors on those
who treat him courteously. This
is true in business as in other affairs
Politicians find it necessary to lie
polite to everybody. If they were
not they would stand but a poor
show of success. Let us draw a les
on from the politicians and observe
the amemnities of life more care
fully with those with )vhom we come
in contact. It will be found to be
of immense advantage and the re
sults will he m#st. gratifying. Greet
those whom you meet with a smile
and a gracious bow instead of a curt
nod and brusque manner. Von will
find you will have more friend and
inatiy real benefits will result. —

“Do hogs pay?” asks one of our
editorial brethren, whose work is
to solve agricultural and such prob
lems. Not to any great extent,
dear brother- They attend church
for months but when asked to help
support tho preacher, don’t pay.
That is, hogs don’t. They take a
paper and read it until at least
three new pairs of spectacles are
worn out, yet don’t pay. The
production of work is quite often
profitable to those engaged therein,
but hogs don't pay. —Maysville
