There is a movement on foot to
knock out locker clubs and put a
tax on soft drinks to make up
the deficit. Georgia seems to be
hard run to make ends meet.

Since establishing its Atlanta
bureau The Macon Telegraph is

Doyle Jones, editor of The
Butts County Progress, is a
royal booster for his old home

were more like him in this
land of the free and the home

More power to his boosts;
greater growth to Jackson
and an earnest hope for a lit

Many thanks, Oliver. If

One cannot help becoming nervous
and feeling tired and worn out when
the kidneys fail to filter and throw
cut of the system the poisonous waste
matter that causes kidney troubles
and bladder ailments.
Backache Is one of Nature’s danger
signals that the kidneys are clogged
up and inactive. It is often followed
by rheumatism, annoying bladder or
urinary disorders, puffy swellings
under the eyes, swollen ankles and
painful joints. • .
Foley Kidney Pills get right at the
source of trouble. They invigorate
the kidneys to healthy action and
when the kidneys properly perform
their functions the poisonous waste
matter is eliminated from the system.

RESOLUTIONS ON DEATH
OF MISS AMANDA VARNER
In the death of Miss Amanda
Varner which occurred at her
home, Indian Springs, Ga., in
March, the church and society
has lost one of its most active
members. Possessed of broad
mind, genial disposition her
friends were numbered by her
acauaintances. Miss Amanda
was remarkable in many ways.
One of the most striking was her
great knowledge of people and
events which combined to make
her one of the most interesting
conversationalists to whom we
have ever listened. But with all
this she was most remarkable for
her devotion to the church and
the cause of Christ. Those of
us who Knew her cannot soon
forget the interest she manifest
ed in this society.
Therefore, be it resolved that
in the death of Miss Amanda
Varner the church and this so
ciety and humanity in general
has lost a friend indeed and one
whose place will be hard to fill.
2. That we tender our heart
felt sympathy and love to her
bereaved sister, Miss Joe Varner,
and that a copy of this preamble
and resolution be sent her.
3. That a page in our minute
book be inscribed to her memory.

Mrs. A. B. Wrenn,
