You can sell a fellow a mule and

close your mortgage and then call

Don’t say this old world Is a fraud.
You are simply lying. inward,

The sorriest cues on earth is the
fellow that will let his wife walk

baby, and about one o’jiock in the
morning raise the devil with that
worn out wife because she wont l>t

The boy that hangs out of school

When a man insists on constantly
announcing his faith in anything, it
is a sign that he himself is beginning
to doubt it.
Since the campaign of last year the
Atlanta papers have undergone a re
markable moral change. Then they
published about the guberenatoria 1

now they decline to publish in detail
the testimony in the Trial on the
gr turd that it is too dirty for their

The ordinance passed by the town
council forbidding the keeping of hogs
in town is not observed by many of
the citizens of JacksoD.
The ordianceis somewhat too man
datory and broad. We think a strict
ordinance as to the manner of keeping
the pen would be far better.
No doubt the marshals would pa
trol the town and keep an eye open
for violations of an ordinance against
filthy hog pens if they were required
to do so.
They really need a diversion of
this sort to break the monotony of
hanging around the Court house
square. One hog in a half acre patch
or even an eighth of an acre, would
rot create any filth and it is foolish
to say one shall not keep a hog in town
at all, to say nothing of keeping a
hog in a pen, or enclosure of this char
To say the least of it, the council
should modify the ordinance, or
cause all to observe it.
AUGUSTA PAPER BURNED.

Most people know that if they have
been sick they need Scott's Emttl m
s/on to bring back health and strength.
But the strongest point about Scott's
Emulsion is that you don’t have to be
sick to get results from it
It keeps up the athlete’s strength, puts fat
6n thin people, makes a fretful baby happy,
brings color to a pale girl’s cheeks, and pre
vents coughs, colds and consumption.
Food in concentrated form for sick and
well, young and old, rich and poor.
And it contains no drugs and no alcohol.
