evidence of the state-wide desire

“The demand for a change by

“For t hirty years there has been
operated in Georgia a so-called
common school system, and yet
no definite plan for the systematic
education of the children of the

principles, has been devised or
put into operation by the execu

earlier history of the system, when
the funds provided were small,
and w hen teachers and boards of

now, there were undoubtedly good
reasons for an absence of syste

fund of one million five hundred

of whom have been trained for

Discussing the “model farm” a
writer in the Independent finds,
in contradistinct ion to the trend
in; industrial affairs, that the ten
dency in agriculture is leading to
ward small farms and more thor

farmer has been doing this thing
wrong for generations. He has
been loading himself with broad
acres to such an extent that real
productive capacity of America
is an unknown quantity. He has
to pay taxes on wide infertile
areas without return. He is com
pelled to erect great buildings for
the storage of crops which some
times come and some time fail.
Time was, and is now, to a great
extent when the farmer considered
himself poor if he could not look
at a whole section of land and call
it his. He forgot that one part of
his posession was brush, another
swamp land, another briar. He
had, not yet come to the notion
that his comparitively small tilla
ble acreage was worth more alone
than when combined with the rest
of his square miles
But the farmer is changing his
mind. He has been thinking
these things over and in time will
come to the point whore he will bt*
satisfied with the smallest possi
ble acreage which will produce the
greatest comparative profit. He
will put under cultivation im

From the Royal academy of Bel

“Do not smoke either while fast

“When smoking cigars or ciga

is not decomposed in the center is
attracted toward the tip and ac

Gentlemen: Being entirely cured of deafness, thanks to your treatment, I will now give you
a full history of my case, to be used at your discretion.
About five years ago my right ear began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my hearing in this ear entirely.
I underwent a treatment for catarrh, for three months, without any success, consulted a num
ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent ear specialist of this city, who told me that
only an operation could help me, and even that only temporarily, that the head noises would
then cease, but the hearing in the affected ear would be lost forever.
I then saw your advertisement accidentally in a New York paper, and ordered your treat
ment. After I had used it only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and
to-day, after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear has been entirely restored. I thank you
heartily and beg to remain Very truly yours,
