“LITTLE JON" WILL
WEAR IIOMN-MADN JE.
JUST TUN SAMN.
A kooiI ileal has been aid in the
anti-Brown newspapers of the State in
reference to Hon. Jon. M. Brown’s an
nounced intention of wearing a suit of
home-made jeans upon the occasion of
his inauguration ns Governor of Geor
gia, and, as a mat
of the comment hti
ter of coursi
s been of a
suit of G
intimation being that the
pure and sitn|
riticisms, the II
lit talk with
ans is dema
elect, the conversation turned upon cer
tain new. paper comment in reference
to his desire to wear homespun clothes
at. the ceremony which begins his term
as Governor of Georgia. The particu
lar comment to which hi’ referred was
to the effect that he should wear hand-
spun and woven material of the olden
time, which we all remember was
usually a coarse, uneven texture that
no one cares to wear at this day and
time of progress and improvement in
textile manufacturing. This material
was all right and served its purpose
well in its day, but now it must take
its place along with the old Hint and
steel ritle of pioneer days. It was the
lu st we had at the time, and we were
proud to wear it. Even as the handi
work of our devoted women, during the
war period, we were proud to wear
what we then called Dixie silk. It was
act of patriotism then, just as when
Gov. Jos. E. Brown during the same
period, Georgia's war Governor, wore
a suit of jeans, but to-day sueh an act
would mark the spirit of the dema
gogue. Said Mr. Brown: 'I was elected
upon a platform of progress, and it is
my desire to see our people go forward,
and that our State should keep pace
with the times and trend of events.
Not in pomp or undue pride, but in line
with true progress, I will take pride
in wearing the best suit of clothes that
can he built in my own State, and it is
equally gratifying to me that it hap
pens to he made in my own county.’
“It has been stated many times that
Mr. Jefferson rode up to the capitol on
horseback and went in and took the oath
of office. But investigation goes to
show' that he left his boarding-house
and walked to the capitol and took the
oath. Mr. Adams, the retiring Presi
dent. so hated Mr. Jefferson that he
would not go with him to the capitol.
which was the proper thing to do, and
which custom has been followed ever
since. But with all of Mr. .letferson’s
simpdeity of personal habits, he was,
like Mr. Brown, a progressive and not
a retrogressive genius.”
Gov. Smith visited the Prison Farm
near Milledgeville last week, and while
there pardoned out a number of con
victs who were serving terms in that
institution. The Governor has been
sharply criticized in some quarters for
his alleged reckless use of the pardon
ing power, hut, for one, The Herald
and Advertiser cannot find it in its
heart to condemn him for these acts
of humanity. Most of the poor crea
tures who were the beneficiaries of ex
ecutive clemency in these instances
were aged and intirm, being unable to
perform manual labor, and we think
Gov. Smith did right in giving them
their liberty. We have not been able
to indorse all of Mr. Smith’s acts since
he assumed the Governorship, but do
not hesitate to stand by him in this la
test and. to our mind, the most com
mendahle act of his administration.

The coat of the summer suit is
hard to make.because the material
is light and is only half-lined, so a
lot of planning is necessary to make
the inside so that the outside will
hold its shape. Then, again, the
shoulders are not easy to manage—
most summer coats have shoulders
that look as though there’s a car
pet pad at the end.
Not so with “Alco System” suits.
They are made to fit right and hold
their shape. You can rely on them
like a calendar. These half-lined
coats have substantial haircloth
fronts that won’t break, and the
shoulders are built out with grad
uated pieces of wadding worked in
with thousands of tiny stitches.
