Jack Sprat and His Wife
"Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
Hts wife could eat no lean; —’’
NO one ever heard of what be
came of Jack Sprat and his
wife, but it’s likely enough that
Jack became thinner and thinner as
his wife grew fatter and fatter. They
seem to have disappeared for every
one nowadays seems to be making a
courageous and sensible attempt to
eat sanely. Over-indulgence in fat
tening foods is looked upon with gen
eral distaste and women in particular
abhor the thought of becoming too
stout. Thin people and especially
thin men make desperate attempts to
lay on weight in order to retain a
youthful and healthful appearance.
In the vast assortment of healthful
foods that come in tin cans there are
many fattening ones and many thin
ning ones. The housewife who knows

These are excellent summer foods,

are suggestions, simplified by the use
of canned foods.

Here are special luncheon menus

GAS TAX REVENUE INCREASE
NOT DUE TO ROAD BOND ISSUES
Figure* From State Auditor’s Office
Show Georgia's Gasoline Revenue
Has Doubled Since 1922.
Road bond advocates, in pointing
to Illinois, North Carolina and other
heavily bonded states, reckon erron
eously and illogically in citing in
creased gasoline tax returns as con
comitants of the public debts in
curred in highway construction. The
fallacious contention, which recently
has been revived in Georgia is shat
tered by figures obtained from the
state auditor’s department respecting
Georgia’s experience in the matter
of gasoline tax returns.
Asa matter of fact, sustained by
figures or. record at the auditor’s de
partment, Georgia’s gasoline tax re
turns within the last few years have
shown a greater increase than the
revenues derived by the bonded
states from the same source, and
Georgia is committed against the is
suance of highway bonds.
The experience of Illinois in issu
ing road bonds, it is said, has result
ed in an increase of about 100 per
cent in six years in the gasoline taxes
collected by that state from the sale
of fuel oil. The tax increase, it is
argued, is wholly accountable to the
bond issue, though no comparative
figures as tp the rate of taxation are
given. Whether the rate has been
increased or remained stationary
through the period of comparison is
Inquiry at the office of the state
auditor Thursday morning disclosed
that Georgia’s revenue from the fuel
oil tax, involving the sale of gasoline
has increased over 100 per cent since
1922, and this increase is figured on
the same rate that applied in 1922.
The figure cited relate only to so
much of the fuel oil tax as is con
verted into the general treasury, and
the gneral treasury fixed allotment,
under law, is the same today as it
was in 1922, namely 1 cent a gal
lon on each gallon of gasoline sold
in the state.
The proportionate part of the
gasoline tax that was converted
into the general fund in 1922 was
$739,185.55. This, as remarked, rep
resented 1 cent a gallon tax.
In 1925, at the same rate of 1
cent a gallon, the general fund re
ceived from the gasoline tax $1,338,-
For the first six months of the
current year, and at the same rate
Of 1 cent a gallon, the revenue re
ceived by the general fund from the
sale of gasoline has been $736,058.83.
Thus, from the records, it is appar
ent that the revenue from the sale
of gasoline, for the first six months
of 1926 in Georgia, was practically
as much as for the whole year of
And two last quarters of the year,
the records show, unfailingly bring
in a bigger return from gasoline sales
than the first two quarters.
In other words, the auditor’s de
partment expects the 1926 increase
in gasoline tax returns to exceed by
considerably more than 100 per cent
the revenue derived from the same
source in 1922.
From the records and compara
tive figures, it is therefore apparent
that although Georgia has issued no
road bonds and has continued to op
erate on the pay-as-you-go plan, the
returns from the state’s gasoline tax
has more than doubled since 1922.
Should the figures quoted by bond
advocates include increase of rates
of taxation Georgia’s fuel oil tax has
increased in total amount from about
$700,000 in 1922 to over. $4,000,000
in 1925, or approximately six hun
dred per cent.—Atlanta Journal.

Detours And Construction
Politicians there may be who are
so wise that they can build hard
surfaced roads with no need for de
tours while construction is going on,
and so powerful that they can control
the rain from heaven, making it to
fall on field and garden, with never
a drop cn ways of travel. But the
Gainesville Eagle doubts that such
wonder-workers are really to be
found in Georgia, although there are
partisans and propagandists for state
bonds who seem fully equal to pro
fessing those miraculous gifts.
The Eagle’s remark is prompted by
an attempt of theirs to misrepresent
the roads of Hall county and to be
little the work of the highway de
partment. During the recent down
pours a certain detour between
Gainesville and Buford, around a
stretch of the main road which is be
ing hard surfaced, became soaked
and heavy. Thereupon the camp of
politics, whose strategy it is to dis
credit or ignore what is being achiev
ed for Georgia, set up a cry that ho
tels were empty, that crop values
were being destroyed, that ruin and
desolation were threatened—all “On
Account of State Highway.’’ The 1
incident would have been too trivial
for comment save for the fact that
it was so characteristic of the meth
ods of extremists trying to force
an immense state bond issue on the
taxpayers. The Gainesville Eagle’s
editorial rebuke of such tactics is
supplemented by a trenchant thrust
from Colonel H. H. Dean, who says
in the course of his statement:
“If one short five-mile detour
which becomes impassable for a few r
days, while a hard surfaced road is
being constructed, has the effect of
closing hotels, destroying peach crops
and bringing financial loss to the
country, what would happen should
we undertake to construct five thou
sand miles at one time with five
thousand miles of detours as a con
sequence? It would drive every
tourist out of the state, close all
the hotels, break every merchant,
destroy ail our crops and devastate
the state; we would be entirely iso
lated for the next five years if de
tours are such terrible things. At
the present time there are more hard
surfaced roads being constructed than
ever before in the history pf our
state. While every new construction
compels a detour, I am glad to note
there are few complaints, as most of
the travelers realize the necessity of
some inconvenience, especially in bad
weather, while the state is pushing
forward the highway construction.”
Growth has its natural pains, and
progress its inconveniences. But
these, far from being a cause for
downheartedness, are, to thinking
men, the best of omens. If Georgia
were not building highways, there
would be no detours; their presence
is proof of construction. And while
certain overwrought inamginations
profess to see wreck and ruin because
their pet political schemes are not
adopted, the old state moves steadily
and prosperously forward, paying as
she goes.—Atlanta Journal.
Persons who insist on disobeying
the prohibition laws by drinking li
quor that is now available through
“bootleg” channels are taking their
lives in their hands, according to
authorities who have tested it.
The “kick” is not worth the chance
taken in drinking liquor, they say.
Analysis shows that some of the
booze is worthy the name of “coron
er’s cocktails” because of the poi
son it contains, and practically all is
detrimental to health.
The results of the tests made are
borne out by deaths from bad liquor
and acute alcoholism, as shown by
Every year since the, advent of na
tional prohibition in 1919 there has
been an increase in deaths from bad
liquor and alcoholism.
These facts have been brought out
on a number of occasions since pro
hibition became effective, but there
are still countless men who are will
ing to take their lives in their hands
in order to quench their thirst.

20-YEAR JOURNEY FROM
LEFT ARM TO RIGHT TOE
TAKEN BY HYPO NEEDLE
I Sparta, Ga.—John S. Cheely, well
' known farmer and large land owner
of this county, and candidate for the
office of county commissioner in the
primary of September 8, has just re
turned from a three week’s stay in
an Augusta hospital where he was
treated" from rheumastim.
While there, he experienced pain
in one of the toes of his right foot
and called his physician’s attention
to it. Upon examination, he found
that the toe contained a hypoder
mic needle, which was deeply im
bedded in the skin. The needle was
cut out and Mr. Cheely recalled that
a physician twenty years ago had
broken the needle #ff in his arm
while giving him a “shot” of mor
phine. The needle had worked its
way through the entire length of
his body and had never been felt
during the twenty years until it
reached his toe According to Mr.
Cheely, the needle was broken off in
his left arm so ( that it rnpst have
crossed his body in making the trip
HELP ME TO TO HELP OTHERS
My Dear Colored Friends: I am
here as your Home Demonstration
Agent. I have been here since
July Ist. I have walked 127 miles
during the month of July. I am
tired. Will you now come to my res
cue? I want your aid. I need your
help along the line of getting from
one community to the other.
Friends, you are in great need of
my help. Will you wake up to your
duty, and hitch up the jar-head mule,
the long-tailed ox, or you can step
on the gas, and come for me?
I am anxious to reach as many of
the communities and clubs as I can
before the Southeastern Fair, to be
held in October, in Atlanta. I don’t
want you to stop to look up your
white collar to put on to come for
me; put on your clean blue work
shirt, and overalls, and hurry after
me. I am waiting!
I have no way to reach these com
munities, only by walking, and that
is a slow go. Come for me, it is
your duty; I am working to help
you better your conditions. Come af
ter me, I don’t care what you come
in, just so my feet are swinging.
There is a great demand for boys,
girls, women and men, who can do
1 practical things.
So come on after your “demon
strator,” it is your duty. Help get
old Jackson county ready for the
Southeastern Fair, and I will assure
you that old Jackson county will
bring home the “bacon.” Love your
county, love your demonstrator, and
above all, love yourselves and God.
Do your duty. Come carry me
around; it is your duty.
In the language of Burns:
I would not give a copper placque,
For any man who turns his back on
I would not trust him with a groat.
Nor lift an oar in any boat,
That he might steer.
Your humble (Col.) demonstrator.

WHILE CHANGES ARE BEING
(By Edgar A. Guest)
I may be foolish, but when she
Decided that she’d like to make
A sun room, just for beauty’s sake
And build another room to be
A slumber chamber. “Yes,” said I,
“We’ll make those changes in
I like the house the way it stands,
Here I could dwell till death shall
Without that tiled solarium,
But since it’s something she demands,
This latest whim I won’t deny,
We’ll make those changes in July.
Rip, carpenters, and bang about!
Go to it, masons, all you wish!
I’m on Lake Huron catching fish,
I cannot hear the plumber shout.
Go to it, fellow! Bang and pound
I shan’t be there to hear a sound!
I’ve been thru changes once before,
I’ve swallowed dust and tried to be
At home with earnest carpentry,
And once will last forevermore
When masons and plunders enter
I pack my grip and disappear.
Now here beside the lake I sit,
And while those workmen put up
And build that room to suit
A.id if they’re honest they’lll admit,
It suitg them better thru the day.
To have the owner miles away.
