THE SOUL’S QUESTION;
la thero one heart that boats for me—
One breast in which I am enshrined?
If I lay 'neath the deepest sea
Would there be one to weep—one kind.
Sweet face that mi^ht be wet with tears.
One voice to break with poignant grief?
Would there be one that thiough the years
Might sigh because my (light was brief?
Ia there one soul that longs to cleave
In gladness and in woe to mine?
Ia there one, when I achieve
A triumph, deems my gifts divine?
Ah. if I knew there might be one
To give applause, to watch and wait.
How blithely should my tasks be done.
. How bravely I could work and wait!
Is there one who would gladly lay
A trusting hand in mine and strive
To give me cheer upon the way,
To keep my dearest hopes alive?
Is there one heart that beats for me?
I would that I could learn, somehow;
There are some buttons that should be
Sewn on my trousers, even now.
Summer rates on all goods,
trade with us.

Some Georgia History.
One of the heroic figures of war
times in Georgia was Gov. Jos. E.
Brown, father of the present Governor
of Georgia. He was a man of ability
and courage, and served his State well.
It is related of him that when news
reached Milledgeville, the then capital
of the State, that Sherman’s army had
invaded Georgia, he sent a military
message to the Legislature, then in
session, suggesting that “the Governor
and the Legislature adjourn to the
front to aid in the struggle until the
enemy is repelled, and to meet again,
if we should live, at such time ard
place as the Governor may designate.’’
An article in the current number of
Uncle Remus’ Magazine has a readable
account of the affair by Dr. R. J. Mas
sey, at that time head of the Brown
hospital at Milledgeville. A number of
patriotic and soul-Stirring speeches
were made over Gov. Brown’s message.
The appropriation bills were passed
and a recess was taken for dinner. The
record goes on farther, and Dr. Massey
explains that while the members were
eating Gov. Brown received a message
telling him that Sherman’s army was
bearing down upon Milledgeville in
large numbers. There wars no evening
session. Dr. Massey says: “How many
loyal legislators rallied to the standard
records fail to show.” The old inhabi
tants of the town still aver that they
stood not upon their going. Men who
could not hire horses and buggies for a
thousand dollars a day footed it. Gov.
Brown seems to have gone to the peni
tentiary to get an army. We quote
again from Dr. Massey :
“The last official act of Gov. Brown
before leaving Milledgeville, on Satur
day afternoon, Nov. 19, was to require
the penitentiary convicts to aid Quar
termaster-General Foster in getting
upon the railroad train all stores pos
sible belonging to the State. By this
one act Gen. Foster and Gov. Brown
saved the State property approximate
ly half million dollars in value. After
this he formed the men into a military
company, appointing the celebrated
burglar and skillful physician. Dr. Rob
erts, their captain commanding. In a
patriotic speech Gov. Brown touching
ly impressed upon them the fact of
their being pardoned and fully restored
to citizenship. He reminded them of
their duty as Southern patriots—espe
cially to the State of Georgia. Then
each man’s name was called and the
Governor pardoned him. To the credit
of these men, be it said, they served
faithfully to the end of the war, very
Dr. Massey was given a detachment
of Federal troops to guard the hospital
and State Library, and he now ex
presses the conviction that he was the
only Confederate in the United States
who ever had the satisfaction of giving
orders to Federal soldiers and seeing
that they were obeyed to the letter.
He marched them through the streets
of Milledgeville, from one point to an
other, and protected property worth
several millions of dollars. But for
this service none of the records of the
State would have been saved. Strag
glers were ransacking the town, pil
laging, destroying and burning every
thing they got their hands on, and
were stopped, according to Dr. Massey,
through a petition in perion to Gen.
Sherman. Many Federal soldiers were
being cared for at Brown hospital,
a fact which doubtless accounts for the
action of the Federal commander.
Gov. Joseph E. Brown made himself
famous as Governor of his State from j
1357 to 1865. He was elected three ]
times, and his devotion to duty is part j
of the history of Georgia. He was one
of the iron-blooded men of the times. ■
His son, who has just been inaugura-j
ted Governor of Georgia, is said to be
of the same type of men. Anyway, he is ;
in the shadow of a great name, and we J
believe he will so discharge his duty as I

WESTON, Ocean-to-Ooean Walker,
Said recently: “When you feel down j
and out. feel there is no use living,
just take your bad thoughts with you
and walk them off. Before you have
walked a mile things will look rosier.
Just try it.” Have you noticed the in
crease in walking of late in every com
munity? Many attribute it to the com
fort which Allen’s Foot-Ease, the anti
septic powder to be shaken into the
shoes, gives to the millions now using
it. As Weston has said, “It has real

It is the plan of the Atlanta and
West Point railroad to build a link
from Sofke to Macon, after establish

workshops here, thus enabling the At

connections to the sea.
The Atlanta and West Point operates
to LaGrange, where the traffic would
be taken up by or transported through
over the line of the Macon and Bir
mingham to Sofke. The new link
would then bring the road to Macon,
and connections would be made here
with the Macon, Dublin and Savannah
railroad for Savannah, or for a new
seaport. The Atlanta and West Point
would either absorb the Macon and
Birmingham by purchase or would se
cure the use of its tracks as far as
Sofke. Arrangements for connections
with the Macon, Dublin and Savannah
would also he made.
The proposed link from Sofke would
enter the city below the lower reserve
and would necessitate laying of track
over a considerable portion of this ter

The Farmer Who Becomes a Town La
Dr. Sauman A. Knapp.
I have no sympathy with the unrest
of our rural population, We are upon
the eve of radical changes for the bet
terment of country conditions. To-day
the safest place for investment is the
farm. Land values will increase rap
idly with increasing population. They
will more than double in thirty years.
Already the abandoned farms of New
York and New England are being
bought by capitalists for investment.
There is many a man planning to sell
his paternal acres in the country for a
pittance and invest the proceeds in a
cottage in the town—and then earn the
support of his family by daily toil, ft
is the act of an irrational man. He
does not stop to think that that farm
will give him a home and support and
soon quadruple in value. He fails to
note the possibilities of rapidly in
creasing his wealth by the planting of
valuable trees, and he voluntarily ex
changes the rights of a king and the
privileges ot a freeman for a daily
wage and the badge of service.
The prosperity of the cities, so far
as relates to the masses, is illusory.
The number of toilers who finally ac
quire a reasonable reserve for old age
in the country as compared with the
same class in the cities, is ten to one
taking the whole country into account
While the wage is high in the cities
the costs of rents and living are in pro
portion. The multiplied attractions in
duce a habit of liberal spending, not
conducive to economy. The small
farmer may earn less, but he can save
