What’s the use of growling,
When the worlds is moving on;
What’s the use of howling
Over the democratic s mg.
What’s the use of sneering
When you see hard times;
What’s the use of jeering
At old Judge Hines.
Your inode of living, change,
Before it is too late;
Else, you'll receive an exchange
From the Democratic hate.
Your mode of living, preserve,
Before you are led astray;
Else, you’ll get a reserve
From the populistic betray.
Populist and Democrat!
Why do you sigh,
When the cotton crop is nigh?
Why do you moan,
When the price is known?
Because the receipts are made,
And schemes have been laid;
Because the bills are unpaid,
And time lias been delayed.
An Ohio editor says that hay fever is

the opinion that it is caused by missing
the girl and kissing the cow.

A young woman missionary lately ar
rived in Japan wants everybody to know
there is a country on earth where people
seem to enjoy life as if it were all an
endless dream of fruits, dowers, lakes
and mountains. It is pleasant to know
there is a nation on earth where people
enjoy themselves. In the midst of our
grinding, straining society, where peo
ple get up before daylight to cheat and
get the better of another in a bargain:
where they break down from nervous
prostration and grow old, blind and deaf
before their time trying to get rich, it is
blissful just to read of a people that live
to enjoy themselves and help others en
joy themsemselves —a land whose inhab
itants are all gentle polite and good
natured and inclined to be honest. By
the way, what do we want to convert
the Japanese for?
It is a downright shame that Jackson
doesn’t even pay as much for cotton as
hei sister cities in this immediate vicini
ty. Wa have the best cotton market in
Middle Georgia and our buyers can pay
as much or more for ootton than any
town in this neighborhood. It gives a
place a black eye to be groping along in
the rear with prices on cotton, and one
of our largest merchants told us no later
than yesterday that if things didn’t
change there would be some firms leav
ing here very shortly. Now this is not as
it should be. Considering the low prices
of cotton, our buyers can at least give as
much as Flovilla, Griffin, Jenkinsburg
and McDonough. But we remember a
day not long since when they didn’t do
it. Brace up, gentlemen, you are all
good men, and we feel proud of you, but
when the reputation cf our thriving lit
tle town is at state we dismiss everything
from our minds save facts and the prog
ress of Jackson. Come, now, get a move
on you, and see what a change will come
over this thriving, bustling burgof ours.
