Consider the facts as they re
late to education. For each child
of school age within her borders
Massachusetts spends $25 a year,
while our Southern states in train
ing the brains of each of their
children (although they have the
additional expense of a two-race
system) spend only as follows:
Oklahoma. sl3; West Virginia,
$11; Florida, $8; Louisiana, Texas
and Kentucky, $7 each; Virginia,
Arkansas and Tennessee, $6 each;
Georgia, North Carolina, Ala
bama and Mississippi. $4 each;
and South Carolina. $3. And the
natural results come out in the
census statistics (1910) where we
find that of native whites of na
tive parentage Massachusetts has
only 4 persons in each 1,000 over
ten years of age who cannot read
and write, while Virginia has 82,
North Carolina 123, South Caro
lina 105, Georgia 80, Florida, 52.
Tennesee 99, Alabama 101, Mis
sissippi 53, Arkansas, 71, Louisi
ana 150, Oklahoma 32, and Texas
Massachusetts spends $25 a
year develoDing brain-power in
each Massachusetts child and he
grows up worth SI,BOO. The
South spends $3 to $lO a year on
each child and he grows up worth
less than S9OO. Which is the
wiser policy? —The Progressive

Complaints are arising all over
the country as to the shake-up in
the rural mail service.
If you are not already doing so,
now is a good time to hitch in
and pull for your community.
If Butts county is going to con
tinue in the fair business she
must organize a stock company
and go to it right.
Butts county should not stop at
winning the highest honors in
the corn club work. She should
go after the first prize at the
state fair next year.
FOUR RULES FOR
1. Stick to the farm. It’s bet
ter even for the tenant than the
town or the factory, and certain
ly better for his children whose
future should be dearest of all
things to him.
2. Aim sometime to be a land
owner. If you are 21 or under,
aim to be one by the time you are
35. If you are already too old to
realize this, aim at ownership not
over ten years from now.
3. Resolve to become a land
owner by the two roads: first,
making; second, saving. Un
less you make yourself a pro
gressive, thrifty, ecnomical far
mer now, you would not be like
ly to keep a farm ©f your own if
you had it. Good farming and
careful saving are therefore both
the way to get a farm and the
way to keep it after you get it.
4. Don’t try to be a landown
er too soon. That is to say, don’t
buy a farm until you can equip it
reasonably well. Aim first to
get good tools, good cattle, and
good horses and mules while you
are a renter, and let the land
come later, instead of trying for
the land first and equipment la
ter. —The Progressive Farmer.

“Butts County Wins Corn Club
Prize." This notice appearing
in two or three hundred papers
over the state was a worth while
advertisment for Butts county.
Every town wastes enough
money in fake mining schemes,
shaky insurance investments,
etc., to pave the streets, beauti

many times and oft. Let’s try
keeping the money at home.
LOCATING THE TROUBLE
When one is suffering from backache,
rheumatism, lumbago, biliousness,
sharp pains, sore muscles and stitl
joints it is not always easy to locate
the source of trouble, but nine times
out of ten it can be traced to overwork
ed, weakened or diseased kidneys.

*‘l want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Thedford’s Black-Draught,” writes
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
“It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl’s life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford’s
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. 1 shall never be without
in my home.” For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar
ailments, Thedford’s Black-Draught has proved itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black-
Draught It is a medicine of known merit Seventy-five
years of splendid success proves its value. Good for
young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents.
Every voung person who has
a single spark of manhood smold
ering within his heart, however
small that spark may be, must
wish at times to lead a life that
shall help and not hinder good,
that shall leave the world better
and not worse, from having lived
in it, that shall help to overcome
evil, build up justice, alleviate
suffering where it be found and
try to effect the happiness of his
fellowmen. It is truly ignoble
merely for one’s indulgence to
follow however prudently any
habit or custom that on the whole
harms the state or injures the
average man. It is nobler for
the sake of the larger good to
give up whatever is not worth
while for the good of other men.
A Jackson Man
His testimony will interest
The value of local evidence is indis
putable. It is the kind of evidence we
accept as true because we know we can
prove it for ourselves. There has been
plenty of such evidence in the Jackson
papers lately, and this straightforward
testimony has established a confidence
in the minds of Jackson people that
will not be easily shaken.
Davis Kinard, of Davis Kinard &
Cos., Jackson, says: “I don’t hesitate
to recommend Doan’s Kidney Pills as
a good kidney medicine. My kidneys
were out of order and didn’t act regu
larly. I used Doan’s Kidney Pills and
they relieved all signs of the trouble.”
Price 50c, at all dealers. Don’t sim

Doan’s Kidney Pills—the same that
