CLIPPINGS FROM DAHLONEGA
They are getting very particular
and modest in New York, as the
judge gave a girl three months in
the work house for rolling her stock
ings on the street. Every man going
to that city should wear suspenders,
because if one’s belt was to burst
and be unable to catch his pants be
fore they dropped to the pavement he
would be sure to go to the gang.
It looks like we will have to leave
tiff our cap or lose out. Last week one
of our friends came to town ar.d
didn’t know us. And since that time
while coming to town up the Wimpy
Mill road and meeting one of our
friends Lance driving a team the
mules got scared at us and dashed
off. We have not heard whether
either Mr. Lance or his son with him
got hurt, as we ran jn the oppsite
direction to get out of the sight of
the mules to try to avoid this.

Our short or bobbed tail shirt is
still drawing up, and if there is any
one in the office when a sizing
spell strikes us during the day we
have to run behind the door until
it is all over to keep from being em
barrassed. This is a lot of trouble.
And if we do not soon get a no
sneeze remedy you will hear of an
editor’s shirt being burned, because
we do not wish to be worried, and
mean to make our last days the hap
piest, especially when we can do it
by the loss of one match.
We saw a “drove” of new cars
pass through Dahlonega one day laSt
week, for Cleveland, someone said.
Used to be droves of mules going the
other way. But the course has been
changed. The mules come in and the
money goes out.

When the editor of the Nugget was
a lad children were proud to receive
three sticks of candy, costing five
cents, from Santa Claus on Christ
mas. Now’ it takes an auto and a
pack of cigaretts to please a boy, and
a box of red lip paint and a piano
to cause a girl to smile.

Mr. Carl Brooksher has been up ]
from Winder this week. We will
never forget our young friend. It
was in his car we took our first au- ]
to ride. We do not remember now
who it was that held us in the car.

It is getting about time for the
letter purporting to have been writ
ten by Christ and put under a rock
to appear in some of the papers.
We have never found room for it,
because Christ had no cause to write
and hide any letters.

A PRACTISING LAWYER FOR
(By William H. Beck, Jr.)
When the superior court of Spald
ing county convened at Griffin, sit
ting at the bar was a familiar fi
gure—a figure that has been sitting
at the bar of justice in middle Geor
gia for exactly sixty-five years. And
when the presiding judge of the
Spalding superior court had organized
his court and started calling the di
vorce docket he called: “Jones against
Jones, T. W. Thurmon for the plain
Thomas W. Thurmon rose from
his seat and attended to the case
before the court; Thomas W. Thur
man, the oldest practicing attorney
in Georgia, if not in the entire coun
try. This, venerable barrister has
been before the bar of justice for
sixty-five years, as he was admitted
to practice law by the state of Mis
sissippi on March 7, 1861.
Thomas W. Thurman w r as born in
Butts county, Georgia, 87 years ago,
but you would never surmise he had
seen so many winters come and pass
from looking at him. His face, of
course, is wrinkled and he walks with
crutches, but despite his age he is
well preserved; he is active; and his
mind is as clear as the air on a
crisp winter’s morning. Never a
term of court in Spalding but “Colo
nel Thurman” is at the bar; some
times he has a case to be tried and
sometimes not, but he is always at
one of the long tables within the
bar reserved for the lawyers.
When asked for his opinion on the
present day divorce practice in our
courts, he said: “I have obtained hun
dreds of divorces during my years as
an attorney, but not a single one was
necessary. All were caused by just
some foolish little quarrel. Divorces
are seldom necessary.”
“Colonel Thurman” was one of the
best criminal lawyers this state has
ever had. Justice Simmons, of the
state supreme court, once said that T.
W. Thurman had reversed more
criminal cases than any other lawyer
in the state.
He had a keen insight into human
native. He would study the witness
on the stand until he had found a
method to draw from him the facts
as he wished to present them to the
jury. He would make a number of
foolish motions which the judge
would promptly overrule. Then,
quickly, he would make a motion of
merit, which would also be overruled.
Then, if his client was convicted, he
had his grounds for reversal.
And so Georgia’s oldest practicing
attorney lives quietly in his home at
Griffin, eighty-seven years old and
sitxy-five years before the bar. While
he no longer maintains an office, he
will gladly represent you if the “reve
nues” nab you, or he will obtain a
divorce for you if you and “the wife”
can’t agree, although he does not be
lieve divorces are necessary.
