—Since forty yearn I have Riven my
Shakespearean readings a rest. His
beauties are not so ant to challenge the
admiration of youthful minds as they shot the king’s grenadiers, mercenaries
aro those of older ones. I have resumed and tax collectors chock full of holes.
make fools of yourselves and worship
pers of a name whose original owner
was an infamous Dutchman, who, by a
fortuitous concourse of circumstances,
became his gracious majesty, George
II, of England. A pot-valiant knight of
those times, one Gen. Oglethorpe, ob
tained from the aforementioned libidi
nous king a commission to plant a colo
ny in a territory west of the Savannah
river, reaching to the Mississippi. The
colony was planted. The seeds were
good, came up, and prospered. In com
pliment to his gracious boss, Georgius
Rex II., he femenized the name and
made the bantling colony a female
Georgia, bearing her papa’s patronym
ic. The colonists, his loving and loved
subjects, were a source of constant so
licitude to both the king and his person
ally dominated parliament. So dear
had the colonists’ commercial interests
become to them that the king’s tax col
lector took half they made, and insisted
on making them shout: “Long live the
king!” That was the saw that filed
the bur and lit the lamp of freedom.
The tax-ridden subjects of his majesty,
Georgius Rex II., got their guns and
them latterly, more uh a study than a
pastime. I believe to he true what one
of transcendent understanding has said
of Shakespeare’s mental endowments:
"His mind was an intellectual ocean,”
etc. He who rea ls the changing Hood
of gemmed thoughls that sparkle in ev
ery line of the great dramatist’s works
can but feel its overpowering influence
on his feeble and struggling faculties,
as he beholds them "in Imcehiiml profu
sion” embedded in glorious verse. In
the perusal of "Winter’s Tale” i find
the text which heads this paragraph,
and think it so appropriate that 1 shall
beg the indulgence of my readers and
the editor’s forbearance to let it stand
at the head of my columns as a worthy ,
motto of an earnest man.

The question that is agitating the ! "'^L
Bremen mind is: "Shall it be the
Gainsboro Telephone Go. or the South
ern Bull Telephone Co. which shall put
up its talk-boxes and receive the toll?”
Mr. L. K. Smith, of the Gainsboro Co.,
spent Monday there, endeavoring
quiet the nerves of the people.
Those who escaped hastened to the king
and urged him to issue his emancipa
tion proclamation to the colonists lest
they destroy every vestige of his royal
adherents, which he did, as streams
tears poured down and rolled off his
well-rounded paunch. That an ana
chronism may not appear, (and, since
we are recording history, let the truth
prevail, though the snowbirds go with
out clothes,) the latter troubles with
the colonists was delegated to George
III., as the Grim Reaper had some
years before translated his pa to the
bosom of his Dutch ancestors beyond
tlie .Styx. Georgia is great; the pity is,
she bears a name emanating from
such a source. Who would have
thought such a bird could come from
such a serpent’s egg?

X --At a recent meeting of the U. D.
C. they elected a building committee
composed of Messrs. C. H. Stewart, H.
R. Robinson, W. J. Stewart, J. T.
Bradley, W/O. Perry and W. J. Milli-
can. The members-elect accepted, and
each of them has gone actively to work
to inaugurate ways and means for the
speedy erection of a Confederate mon-
urqpnt. At their first session, held
Monday, the committee invited the U.
D. C. to meet with them, and the fol
lowing members of the chapter were
present: Mesdames A. K. Snead, F.
M. Camp, Paul Jack and Miss Pauline
Harris. Mr. Stewart was made perma
nent chairman of the building commit
tee, and Judge Walter J. Millican sec
retary and treasurer. At the sugges
tion of Dr. H. R. Robinson, Messrs.
D. L. Hearn and C. H. Stewart were
chosen as a special committee to pro
cure plans and specifications for the
erection of the monument. With such
men at the head of the monument
movement as those mentioned the
friends and admirers of the old vets
may rest assured the work will go rap
idly forward to completion. The friends
of the movement may congratulate
themselves upon having two such mas
ter builders on the committee as

I am against so many holidays, but
since the Professor and his pupils have
manifested such zeal in their Georgia
Day celebration, I am perfectly willing
to forgive them for this infraction of
good, unspent time, if he will open
school every Monday morning by read

published concurrent herewith. Now,
don’t balk. Professor; it’s a go, if you
say the word.
—We have, in the person of Dr. H.
R. Robinson, the best equine physician

reputation has gone forth, and his ser

But, alas! for suffering horseflesh,
neither love nor money can induce him
to go beyond the county’s borders. It is
said of him by the oldest inhabitants
that he has not been out of the county
since his advent, forty years ago.
True Womanly Beauty.
No woman can be truly beautiful who
has a yellow complexion caused by a
torpid liver. To be beautiful a wo
man must have good health, and this
can he accomplished by occasionally
using St. Joseph’s Liver Regulator
(either liquid or powders, as you like
best.) It keeps the bowels open, pass
ing off the poisonous, effete matter,
and in this way purifies the blood and
assists in clearing the complexion. All
women should occasionally use St. Jo
seph’s Liver Regulator. Liquid, 60
cents a bottle; powders, 25 cents a

The physician shook his head. He
smiled in a vexed way. Then he took a
leech out of a glass jar.
“Let me show you something,” he
said. “Bare your arm. ”
The cigarette fiend bared his pale
arm, and the other laid a lean, black
leech upon it. The leech fell to work
busily. Its body began to swell. Then,
all of a sudden, a kind of shudder con
vulsed it and it fell to the floor dead.
"That is what your blood did to that
leech,” .said the physician. He took up
the little corpse between his fingers
“I guess it wasn’t a healthy leech in
the first place,” said the cigarette stac
“Wasn’t, eh? Well, we’ll try again.”
And the physician clapped two leeches
on the young man’s thin arm.
“If they die,” said the patient,
“I’ll swear off—or, at least, I’ll cut
my daily allowance from thirty to ten.”
Even as he spoke the smaller leech
shivered and dropped on his knee, dead,
and a momept later the large one fell
“This is ghastly,” said the cigarette
fiend. “I am worse than the pestilence
to those leeches. ”
“It is the empyreumatic oil in your
blood.” said the medical man. “All ci
garette fiends have it.”
“Doc,” said the young man, regard
ing the three dead leeches thoughtful
ly, ”1 half believe you are right.”
KEEP THE KIDNEYS WELL.
Health is Worth Saving, ancl Some
Newnan People Know How
to Save It.
Many Newnan people take their lives
in their hands by neglecting the kidneys
when they know these organs need help.
Sick kidneys are responsible for a vast
amount of suffering and ill health, but
there is no need to suffer nor to remain
in danger when all diseases and aches
and pains due to weak kidneys can be
quickly and permanently cured by the
use of Doan^s Kidney Pills. Here is a
Newnan citizen’s recommendation;
William T. Lazenby, 64 Wesley
street, Newnan, Ga., says: “I think
very highly of Doan’s Kidney Pills, and
consider them an excellent remedy for
kidney complaint. Before using them,
I had suffered from kidney trouble for
several years, during which time I
tried many remedies without receiving
any benefit. My back ached a great
deal, and I was always annoyed by the
excessive action of the kidney secre
tions. The contents of one box of
Doan’s Kidney Pills, procured at Lee

A BAPTIST ELDER
Restored to Health by Vinol
“I was run down and weak from In
digestion and general debility, also suf
fered from vertigo. I saw a cod liver
preparation called Vinol advertised and
decided to give ft a trial, and the re
sults were most gratifying. After tak
ing two bottles I regained my
strength and am now feeling unusually
well." Henry Cunningham, Elder Bap
tist Church, Kingston, N. C.
Vinol is not a patent medicine—but a
preparation composed of the medicinal
elements of cods’ livers, combined with
a tonic iron and wine. Vinol creates
a hearty appetite, tones up the organs
of digestion and makes rich, red blood.
In this natural manner, Vinol creates
strength for the run-down, over
worked and debilitated, and for deli
cate children and old people. For
chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis
Vinol is unexcelled.
All such persons in this vicinity are
asked to try Vinol on our offer to re
fund their money if it fails to give sat

The trees absorb plant foods—that is, nitrogen, phosphoric acid
and potash—from the soil just the same as any other crop. Experi

Apple, pear, peach, orange and other fruit trees soon respond to
careful fertilization. But be sure to use the best fertilizers.
“ I made a test with other companies’ fertilizers,” says Mr. H. O.
Lowry, of Manatee County, Fla., “ and yours proved to be the best.
The yield where I used Virginia-Carolina Fertilizer, was just twice as
much as where the other two companies’ fertilizer was used.”
