General March estimates the number of men killed in the-late war at seven million, two hundred ami fifty-four thousand, and still there are politicians who are trying to defeat tin* establishment of a league of nations that we may never again have such a war. It is really amusing to have men who delight in expressing their views in opposition to the league of nations and trying to persuade themselves, through their egotism, that they know more about this great question than Wilson, Taft, Lloyd George and Cleineneau. Life's a funny proposition after all, and there are many funny people you meet during your brief experience this side of eternity. We often think that if some of these fellows are so fortunate as to land in paradise, the first opportunity they get they will oppose the wisdom of God in an effort to prove they know a little better than He how His Kingdom should be managed. —o It is generally understood that the Eighty-second division will sail for home in the early part of April. o— — Atlanta had a million dollar fire a few days ago which consumed over eighty ears of perishable property. The organization of a co-operative cotton export corporation with capitalization of fifty million dollars is advocated by Governor W. I’. Harding, of the Federal Reserve Board. —o The Seventeenth Engineers are due in the United States March 24th, and will be ordered to Camp Gordon for demobilization. —o A great wave of enthusiasm seems to be spreading over the country for William Howard Taft as the next president of the United States. o Deputy Sheriff J. W r . Webb, of DeKalb county, was shot and in stantly killed a few days ago by an unknown man, who also wounded Deputy R. T. House. The officers were shot when they discovered the stranger asleep and woke him to search his car. a— William Jennings Bryan, who has been ill for several weeks in Washington City, has recovered sufficiently to go to Baltimore where he ami Mrs. Bryan celebrated bis fifty-ninth anniversary yesterday. —o 1 THE LIFE WORTH LIVING. The life of a human soul is of stub short duration in this ■world that when seriously contemplated one is lost in the realm of wonderment and bewilderment beyond the power of expres sion. Even though we live to a ripe old age the end arrives so quickly it can scarcely be realized. It seems only yesterday to the man of seventy when he was young and reveling in the joys and activities of young man hood. Knowing our existence here is but a few fleeting moments, how strange it is that, we give most of the years allotted to us to envy, strif *. jealousy aim hatred, instead of to love and song and to laughter. How surprising it is that we do not cultivate a longing to avoid the unkind side of life and refrain from doing those things which help to increase the burdens, the sorrows and disappoint ments of others. How much brighter every life would be if it were imbued with a yearning desire to do something for tin* betterment of humanity, to make others happy, to strike tin* chains from every heart and give the stars of hope new luster. A great divine has truthfully said —“there is a better ambi tion than merely to stand high in the world, it is the ambition to lift mankind a little higher. There is a nobler character than that which is merely incorruptible, it is the character which aits as an antidote and preventative of corruption. Fearless to Speak the words that bear witness to rightousness and truth ml purity. Patiently to do the deeds which kindle hope tfud strength and virtue in our fellowmen. Generously to lend a hand to those who are striving to climb upward, faithfully to give our support to the effo is that are making to purify and elevate the social life of the world.” This the kind of life worth living, and if men could have their eonscienees thoroughly awakened to the realization of the fact that to brighten a human heart and fill it with hope and glad ness is one of the grandest and greatest acts which can he done to lift that heart and life to loftier ideals, what a transforma tion would take place on this planet. ('apt. Jack Crawford, the poet scout, has expressed a beau tiful sentiment alony this line of thought in tin* followitiv verses: If 1 could clothe each jeweed thought, That comes to me in nature's bowers, In classic language suc h as taught Away from Western woods and flowers, If 1 could sing the sweet refrains That in my soul in silence cluster, From many a heart I'd strike the chains And give the stars of Hope new luster. If I could scatter all the gems, That light my soul in darker places, I’d pluck the hope-buds from their stems And wreathe them o’er despondent faces; If 1 but had the power to stay The blighting hands of pain and sorrow, The human hearts that wilt today Would lift their heads and bloom tomorrow. If from tin* Master’s hand above. To me the longed-for |>ower was given, To change all bitterness to love, Of every earthly hell make Heaven, The lowering clouds would swiftly flee From the light that follows after, And every wave of Life’s broad sea „ Would gleam with love, and song, and laughter. V4|^CwOj^py<i * ll A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE FLAG We cannot say now who origi nated the beautiful idea of the Service Flag in honor of the men —yes, and the women, too —who have entered the service of our country, hut it has soared nation wide until now, not only do we find them with one or more stars displayed proudly in the homes from which loved ones have gone, hut we find them in our churches, our lodges and societies, business concerns, towns and counties, and in all conceivable places. And this is as it should he. We are showing herewith a cut of the very beautiful Service Flag of the Georgia Woman’s Christian Temperance Union. Already it has more than a thousand stars, and more are being added con stantly. One loyal mother hn* five stars on this fiag, representing her five sons in the service. The Georgia Bulletin, in speak ing of this State Service Flag says: “Winder is the only Union send ing the names of women, and also has the distinction of sending in the longest list, sending 54 names. AH Winder should bo proud of this.” The Winder Woman's Christian Temperance Union is one of the .strongest and most active in the State, having at the last report 129 members.
