Cotton spent several days last week at Palmetto visiting her pa rents, Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Culbreath. Mr. and Mrs. John Brasoh spent the week-end in West Point. Mr. and Mrs. Shack Hunter and Mr. TURIN. The school laws of Georgia require that “the nature of alcoholic drinks and narcotics shall be studied and taught thoroughly in the common and public schools in the same manner as other required branches are taught in said schools.” Now. it will require a competent chemist to explain the na ture of alcohol or the meaning of nar cotics; yet young girls engaged in teaching, who know nothing about chemistry, are required to teach “thor oughly” these branches! Doctors pre scribe both alcohol and narcotics for their remedial ejects in certain cases, and yet all children must be “taught thoroughly” that their use is injurious. Just the other day President Taft was quoted as asking, "What is whiskey?” It' the President of these United States doesn’t know what whiskey is, how can the average country school teacher be expected to know? The fact stands out that Georgia’s school laws are de fective. They should either he wiped out or reconstructed along new and dif ferent lines. Another query: If “near-beer” is one-fourth alcohol, (as is claimed), and the State licenses its sale, is not the State guilty of violating the prohibi tion law? Again: Does it look well for a prohibition State to pay her leg islators and teachers with money de rived from taxes levied on alcoholic drinks? Verily, it seems hard for the legs of the lame to keep even. The automobile craze seems to have taken complete possession of the At lanta newspapers. The idea of having the roads of Georgia macadamized or asphalted for the pleasure of “joy ri ders” who come out from the cities is too preposterous for anything. If there were no machines to be sold we daresay the craze would soon die out, and coun try folk could then venture upon the highways without danger to life or limb. There may he wisdom in the theory of compulsory education, hut we fail to see it in that light. The majority of parents will, from simple love of their children, send them to school as long as they can without being compelled to do so by law. Rev. Mr. Russell filled his appoint ment at the Presbyterian church last Sunday.

Scientists have found in a cave in Switzerland bones of men who lived 1(H),000 years ago, when life was in con- stunt dunger from wild beasts. To-day the danger, as shown by A. W. Brown of Alexander, Me., is largely from dead ly disease. “If it had not been for Dr. King’s New Discovery, which cured me, 1 could not have lived,” he writes, “suf fering as I did from a severe lung trouble and stubborn cough.” To cure Sore Lungs, Colds, obstinate Coughs, and prevent Pneumonia, it’s the best med icine on earth. 50c and $1.00.
