Has anybody said anything
about a safe and sane Fourth?

Wonder who will be the bright

Doyle Jones, editor of The
Butts County Progress, is a
royal booster for his old home
town. Would that there were
more like him in this land of
the free and the home of
Williams Jennings Bryan!
More power to his boosts;
greater growth to Jackson
and an earnest hope for a lit
tle boosting contagion across
the line into Monroe. —Mon-
Many thanks, Oliver. If The
Progress were called on for an
opinion it would say that The Ad

The Macon Telegrah has a
bright editorial page and is a
good paper. Now let it cut
out its “obituary” correspon
dent from Juliette and it’ll
be a livelier paper still. 4 ‘The
Man from Juliette” makes a
specialty of funerals. He
gets all the exchanges possi

are good and “dead” he sends
in his copy. Anything that
happens in a hundred miles
of his town is put down as
“near here. ” A wonderful
imagination has the “Man
from Juliette,” but he is
more elaborate than accurate.
