Entered at second-clasi matter at the pottoflice under Act ot Congress March 3, 1879
Too many people dislike thinking and dread responsibility.
One of the big jobs is trying to reform mankind and few men
have been successful in the undertaking.
If the peach crop is safe after this cold snap, Georgia will be al
right through July and August.
From the news items coming to us from Lurope it is a hard mat
ter to know just what is going to happen over there.
The peace conference is impressed with the necessity of doing
something quickly to bring about normal conditions and aie bolding
two sessions daily
Over four thousand millionairs have ben developed, according to
estimates compiled from government reports on “waste re-clamation
Senator I hike Smith, in an address delivered before the Ad\ei
tising Club of Atlanta, prophisied peace in the near future, other
marvelous opportunities for expansion in all lines in America await
Mayor Thompson was re-elected in Chicago for_ another term
over Switzer, democrat. Thompson received 257,888 votes and
The Baptist Tabernacle of Atlanta, which has a debt of $90,000
against it, will be lifted if possible by a campaign made for this pur
pose, in which Dr. Braughton will assist the pastor Dr. Jno. \\. Ham.

What is the matter with the world? The whole business seems
to be out of joint. When it begins to look things are about to be ad

Uncle Sam is calling for 50.000 bachelors lor service in Lurope to
take the place of 50,000 married men already over there, and who
want to come home. If you are an old bachelor and don’twant some
woman to support, you, now is your opportunity to go to the front
and let some poor fellow come back to enjoy this blessing.
In vote on the “little” ballot proposition “shall Chicago be dry
territory?” was won by the “wets” without contest by the “drys”
In this vote more women were wet than dry and ii they are going to
cast their ballots this wav, they will not accomplish much good by
being allowed to have their franchise. 76,325 women in Chicago vot

It seems a lot of their women need reforming.
