Sinff a sonff of sweethearts!
Dappled is the aky,
On the diHtant hillsides
Soft the shadows lie,
All the world of springtime
Keeps a holiday,
With its buds and blossoms
Gurlanding the wny.
See, they fall about her
In a fairy rain*
As she comes to meet me
Down the lonir irreen lane!
Sinn: a sons: of sweethearts!
How the wind of June,
Tremulous and tender,
Catches up the tune;
Sets the leaves a-whisper
At its rise and fall.
Carries back an answer
To the thrush’s call.
Over, over, over,
Echoes the refrain.
As I r;o to meet her
Down the lonwr green lane!
Sing n song of sweethearts!
Every lifetime brings
One enchanted moment.
When with folded wings
Love on earth beside us
Walks a little way,
Hesitates and wonders—
Shall he go or stay?
Silence, sweet and wistful.
Falls between us twain.
As he wanders with us
Down the long green lane!
Of the Grand Jury Chosen and Sworn
for the March Term, 1909, of
Coweta Superior Court.
We, the grand jurors chosen and
sworn for this term ot Coweta Superior
Court, make the following present
We have examined the books of all
the county officers, through committees,
as best we could.
We find that the Tax Receiver’s and
Tax Collector’s books are neatly kept,
and, so far as we have taken time to-
investigate, we believe them to be cor
rect,. We find that our Hoard of Com
missioners have refunded taxes to the
amount of $211.04, for which the Tax
Receiver draws the regular per cent,
as commissions, which is not in accord
with law. We find in offices books
known as “Tax Receiver’s Receipt
Book.” Now, we recommend that they
be bound and filed in the proper office.
We find the books of the Ordinary,
Sheriff and Clerk kept in a neat and
accurate manner, and these officers are
to be commended for the business-like
methods they use in keeping a record
of all business they have in their of
We find the books of the County
Commissioners and Treasurer in nice
and neat order, and correctly kept, so

I We find the Surveyor has no book on
hand in which to keep his records, but
that he is using every effort to get one,
and we recommend that the Commis
sioners assist him in doing so.

portable cars, nineteen mules, one
horse, seven wagons, seven carts, two

hundred blankets. We find the total
expense for maintaining the same per

feeding mules per day, 40 cents: aver
age cost of feeding men per day, 13
cents. We find the general condition of
the camp as good as could be expected,
and comtiiend the Commissioners for
employing such an able warden as
Capt. S. S. Nash.
As to county buildings, we find the
jail neat and clean. We recommend that
a small window be cut in the cage door.
9o the jailor can feed the prisoners
without having to open the door, as it
is dangerous. We also recommend that
a bath-tul) be put in. We find the court
house in good condition, and recom
mend that sewerage be put in to drain

Creek, L. M. McGee.
We recommend that the County Com
missioners be paid $100 per annum.
Realizing the importance of improv
ing our main highways wherever prac
ticable, and appreciating the value to
the community of promoting and en
couraging all public improvements of
this character, we recommend that our
County Commissioners confer with the
authorities of Carioll county regarding
the feasibility of building a bridge
across the Chattahoochee river at or
near Moore’s ferry, and ask the co-op
eration of Carroll county in carrying
the enterprise through.
We take pleasure ir. thanking our
able Judge for his forcible and exhaus
tive charge, and hope he will furnish a
copy of the same to go with these pre
sentments to the printer. We also thank
our Solicitor-General for his courtesy
and kindness to us. We also desire to
thank our foreman for his impartial
rulings. John P. Jones, foreman,

Dispensary Church in South Carolina.
Since the publication in The Herald
of the story of the building of the new
church in the town of Livinsgton, in
Orangeburg county, South Carolina,
the full limelight of publicity has
been turned on it, and all the facts in
connection with it have been made pub
lic. The story as published in The Her
ald is fully substantiated, but has led
to a peculiar situation. The church
building is now rejected by the
church (organization) and the little
town finds itself with a white elephant
on its hands in the shape of a handsome
and well appointed church building.
A dispensary is being operated in the
town, and the profits arising from it
were so great that after paying for all
the municipal improvements a consid
erable sum remained. What to do with
this money was a question that worried
the town authorities not a little, until
finally some one proposed that it be ap
plied to building a church. A proposi
tion was made to the members of a

Walb*r C. Goodson, an attorney of
this city, attended Circuit Court atOs-
kaloosa, la., one day this week, and
noticed some interesting features which
differed from the Missouri pratice.
“On the day of opening court the
Judge lines up the petit jury and asks
if there are any members who want to
be excused,” says Mr. Goodson. “The
day I was there every man with one
accord begun to excuse himself. One
said he had just purchased a farm, and
that he hpd to start his hands fixing it
up. Another said he was a candy
salesman and that his house would fire
him if he didn’t keep on the road. A
great big woodsman said he was unable
to read and write well and that he
wasn’t certain he knew enough to be
“Fully half of the men summoned
had one reason or another why it would
he absolutely out of the question for
them to serve. Later the Judge inves
tigated the excuses and found some of
country church near the town to build
this church and give it to them, which
was accepted, after the pastor had con
sulted with his presiding elder and ob
tained that official’s sanction to the
The members of the church agreed to
aid in the building, but as the work
progressed so well and they were not
pushed to put their hands down into
their jeans, they gave no further aid
than that which accrued from patron
izing the dispensary, and the church
was paid for wholly with dispensary
money. It is completed now, the hand
some pews having been put in during
the past week, and it is ready to be
opened for divine services.
But now it appears that there will
be trouble in getting these services
» The Southern Christian Advocate
questioned the truth of the story as
published in The Herald, and called
upon the Methodist preachers to ex
plain. This has been done in a letter
from Rev. C. B. Simth, the presiding
elder of that district, who states that
“the reports as set forth in the news
papers are largely true.” He inti
mates that building a church with dis
pensary money is no worse than build
ing a school-house with such funds,
but he adds that “no Methodist
preacher shall ever preach in it while I
am on the district,” unless the "higher
church authorities will now give their
This they may not do. Then no Meth
odist pastor will be allowed to preach
in it, and of course the other denomina
tions cannot alFord to take a leas ex
alted position. And so this handsome,
commodious ami comfortable church
must remain closed, and the people be
compelled to attend some less attractive
or convenient church, or perhaps be
unable to attend any church at all.
Now, isn’t this u curious complica
tion? Here is a nice church, which the
church authorities will not accept be
cause they claim that, figuratively, the
devil built it. But what shall be done
them good and others not so good.
Where the excuse was flimsy he made
the man stay on.
“One of the lawyers up there told
me this story. A lineup of jurymen
appeared before a certain Judge just
the same as on the day I was there, and
every man explained that it would
mean disaster to him to serve at that
term of court- all hut a little fellow
at the tail end of the line. This man
was a hunter and he lived in a cabin on
the creek all his life.
“ ‘You have no excuse to offer?’
asked the surprised Judge.
“ ‘No, sir.’
“ ‘Haven’t got a sick mother-in-law
needing your attention?’
“ ‘No, sir; I ain’t married.’
“ ‘What about your crop?’
“ ‘Don’t raise anything.’
“ ‘No fence to fix up?’
“ ‘Haven’t got a fence on the place.’
“ ‘You think you can spare the time
to serve on a jury two weeks?’
“ ‘Sure. ’
“The Judge sut awhile and medita
ted. Reaching over he whispered to
the clerk, who shook his head in per
plexity. Then the Judge’s curiosity
got the better of him.
“ ‘You’re the only man who’s got
the time to serve your country as a
juryman,’ said he. ’Would you mind
telling me how it happens?’
“ ‘Sure not,’ said the little man
promptly. ‘I heard you was going to
try Jake Billings this term. He shot a
dog o’ mine onct.’ ”

with it? Having been built, it should
and will be rut to some use. It might
be converted into a school-house, but
shall the children be taught in a house
which the grown-ups fear to use be
cause it was built out of dispensary
profits? So eventually, because this
would be logical, it may be converted
into a dispensary. One of the finest and
most attractive buildings in the town
being a dispensary, while congregations
worshiped in much inferior buildings,
would aguin be a perplexing condition.
So would it not be best for this house,
now that it is built, to be accepted and
used by the church, lest it be used for
a less worthy purpose?
