Although worried within an inch of
his over worked existence, the editor
of the country newspaper is expected
by a loving, warm-hearted public to
write good, hot editorials on matters
municipal, civil and agricultural; to
give social favorites the fulsome end
by flattering their functions; to an
nounce the death of rare-ripe saints and
hoary sinners in well-chosen, lugubri
ous words that must adorn his endless
crop of unpaid “In Mernoriam,’’ to
waltz smilingly to the scratch when he
announces that some delinquent sub
scriber has just had another he or she
peri added to his feed bill by the inad
vertence of the stork, and he must, no
lens volens, scratch the donor of public
advertising where he itches, or else
hang on the ragged edge of disappoint
ment. By doing all of these things his
patrons may think him a pretty good
fellow good enough to catch by the
scrulf and the slack of the pants and
pitch into the scrap-pile, if a wander
ing typo should come along with a
shirt-tail full of type, and an army
press and propose to give them a paper
hot from the gun These are a few of
the joys that make his gladsome mug
Knowing that the foregoing para
graph is the truth, unadorned with
scollops and frills, that excellent
moulder of public opinion, the Atlanta
Georgian, which on various occasions
has used both its pitchfork and muck
rake to clean out the Augean stables,
devoted much of its valuable space to
reproducing the views of its hebdome-
dal exchanges. This disposition on the
part of The Georgian to recognize the
efforts of the country press has a ten
dency to engender good feeling be
tween them. The Georgian is popular
here because it wears no man’s collar.
It smites all evil-doers alike -from
General Manager Scott, of the Georgia
railroad, to the meanest and lowliest
infractor of the law.
Robt. Rozar, of Atlanta, is visiting
his mother at the A. it M. College.

friends congratulate her upon the dis
tinction she has won.

Judge Adamson our wideawake M.
l\, has learned from many salutary
lessons that the "furthest way around
is sometimes the nearest way through.’’
Since the Government will have its ti
tle range at Waco, and have the khaki
contingent to shoot the ribs out of its
everlasting hills, the Judge has deter
mined to urge Uncle Sam to build an
automobile course from Ft. McPherson
to the Waco ritle range via Carrollton.

parents, Dr. and Mrs. H. R. Robinson,
Mrs. J. R. Sewell, returned to Atlanta
Mr. A. 0. Williams, of the Gains-

summer with relatitves in Tennessee.
Mr. Tropsy Travis, the perfect
plumber who for a few fleeting months
has been making good plumbing con
nections at Covington, came to Caroll-
ton the other day to meet and greet his
excellent consort and children.
— Dr. J. E. Cramer, the finest tooth
carpenter in this neck of the scrubby
and impenetrable and the boss farmer
of the foot hills adjacent to Oak Moun
tain, visited Waco this week. 1 regret
to note that he found his father-in-law,
Dr. D. F. Knott, prostrated from a
stroke of paralysis.
Waiies Aycock, who drives a quill
ind plays on a typewritng machine at

mencement exercises at Oxford, where
her son, Charles, graduates thia week,

Mr. Hotsey Thorntc-. cu>- ropular
superintendent of streets, pulled on his
seven-league hoots and stepped over to
Newnan Sunday afternoon. He took
water—when nothing else was offered
him. He is what you call a prohibition

for water, he’s the finest street man
The Fourth District Agricultural
and Mechanical College is perhaps the
most succesful of all the district agri
cultural school. The institute nas just
closed a splendid session, the enroll
ment of pupils being upwards of 200.
Prof. J. H. Melson, the president, de
serves much credit for the success at
tained. The recent closing exercises
were largely attended. The following
members of the board of trustees were
present: G. P. Munro, T. H. Persons,
G. L. Thomasson, T. M. Zellars, J. A.
Murrah, and we might add L. C. Man
deviile, w'ho is considered ex-officio a
member by reason of his active identi
fication with the school from its incep
tion. The familiar face of that excel
lent counselor, Hon. G. Gunby Jordan
was regretfully missed by the board
and the people. * * * The exhibits
of both the girls and the boys were
much admired by the visitors. In the
boys’ exhibit was a beautiful set of
oak mission furniture. The work was
done in the new machine shop, which
has been named tho Aycock building by
the trustees. The girls’ exhibit showed
a bewildering array of lingerie that the
profane eye of man should not be per
mitted to look upon--delieate handi
work which his ignorant brain could
not classify by name, or designate
their use. Oh, for the pen of a female
society editor just for a minute, that I
might portray those little mounds of
fluffy lace, linen and blue ribbon ! * * *
The industrial programme consisted of
very interesting exercises. The stage
was heavily festooned with boxwood.
In the background, in a setting of
wheat and oat sheaves, hung a life-size
portrait of Hon. Jos. M. Terrell.
Numerous line specimens of corn were
arranged on tables for the use of the
youthful demonstrators. Upon the
whole, the stage presented an ideal
agricultural school display. * * * The
following programme was admirably
rendered, to-wit; Music by Mrs. Ad
ams; Talk on Fertilizers, John W.
Veal; “Cotton and its Products,” O.
H. Meadows; Whole wheat bread dem
onstration by Miss Florence Purgason ;
“Culture of Corn,” B. O. Bishop;
"Packing a Lunch Basket,” Miss Mary
Spence; Fertilizer demonstration by
Alvan E. Harper; “Health in the
Home,” Annabel Yates. * * * The
trustees were highly gratified at the
showing made by the school. Hon. G.
P. Munro declared the work accom
plished by the school had the saving
grace of permanency, and would serve
as a beacon to the agricultural classes.
He said: “It is a grand work, and de
serves the hearty support of the peo
ple." That excellent business man,
Mr. T. M. Zellars, who has been excep
tionally active in behalf of the school,
said: “Every farmer in the district
should have been here to see what the
school is doing towards the dissemina
tion of scientific agricultural knowl
edge. If they could know what these
school boys and girls are being taught
they’d double the yield of their crops
the first year.” Col. T. H. Persons
was most favorably impressed with
wnat he saw and heard, and was espe
cially delighted with the wheat and oats
prospect. He said: “If our farmers
could see the wheat, (which will yield
25 or 30 bushels to the acre,) the oat
crop, (that promises a yield of 50 bush
els per acre,) they’d send their chil
dren here to learn how it is done. Our
Talbot county lands are as fertile as
these, and a knowledge of the A. & M.
methods of cultivation would give us
as good yields.” Hon. G. L. Thomasson
was well pleased with everything per
taining to the school, and has given it
his hearty support. He was greatly
impressed with the road work that is
being done by the convicts. A nice ma
cadamized road run by the school,
which furnishes a fine speedway for au
tos and other vehicles. This piece of
work elicited much praise from himself
as well as the other trustees. Hon. J.
A. Murrah, the Carroll trustee, as well
as Hon. L. U. Mandeviile, showed the
visiting members every courtesy, even
allowing them to drink out of their
spring that runs from under the hill
out of a poplar root. This courtesy is
allowed to no one except bigwigs con
nected with the school.
—The Sage of CarolIton gives this
salutary advice ; “If you want to have
a good time, take it with you.”
—Our community was greatly shock
ed by the death of Dr. F. Cole last
week. He became suddenly ill with
heart trouble, and his death was unex

had a more pleasant seance than that

-This is the kind of stuff that spoils
embryonic bishops: “The South was
wrong in the course it pursued at the
beginning of the Civil War.” Yes,
Reverend Jimmie Lee might have worn
a cardinal’s red hat if he had sense and
patriotism enough to tell the truth
about the “Lost Cause.” The Carroll
county veterans passed some warm res
olutions at their last meeting condemn
ing his unwarranted utterances. Jim
mie has torn himself with the South,
and cooked his goose for a fatter church
—Mr. K. J. Gailhreath was the cyno
sure of Greenville society Monday.
—Roy Mandeviile has opened a gar
age in the building formerly occupied
by the Crown Bottling Works. He will
soon have a half-dozen new machines
in shop, besides all kinds of aauto sup
plies. He will occupy this stand until
the new brick edifice intended for this
purpose is completed.
Did you ever see the like! Charlie
Tanner has a new $1,500 “automobil,”
— (you know those yankee folks call
them that, and that makes it right, of
course.) L. C. Mandeviile has two
new ones, setting him back something
like a couple of M’s. Billy Perdue has
a big $1,000 dust disturber new from
the factory. Jim Cheney, Silas Coalson
and W. S. Carnpbeil each have a ma
chine as good as new.
The Cost of Education.
Albany (N. Y.) Herald.
One of the greatest of all American
industries is the business of educating
the boys and the girls. The conduct of
this business costs as much as $320,-
000,000 a year. It takes $240,000,000 to
pay the teachers and $80,000,000 each
year to provide the buildings. Over
one-fifth of the entire population of the
United States is enrolled in the schools.
The number of teachers employed in
the common schools in the school year
ended June, 1008, was 457,000. Of
these, 370,000 were women. The aver
age school year is now much longer
than in former times, being 150 days.
When we consider the volume of
books, of stationery, of school supplies
for all this army of 19,000,000 school
children, we are impresed with the
enormous economical and commercial
importance of the school system. In a
speech to normal school students in
Georgia recently. President Taft said :
“There is no higher profession in
which self-sacrifice is manifested more
clearly and in which more good can be
done than that of the teacher, and I
hope you will continue it through
Much of the so-called friendship of
the day is but pretense. It exists only
in name, and as soon as it ceases to be
advantageous, it is dropped. The
friendship that continues in prosperi
ty and adversity is to be prized, but all
other kinds are worthless. It matters
not how hard a man may struggle to
do right and make a success of life,
there is always some loathsome rep
tile, some worthies wretch, who is
ready to drag him down, to blight his
hopes and blast his fondest ambitions.
The loss of money and property is not
the greatest loss a man sustains in the
business world ; far better to lose your
money, than to lose hope and ambition.
