It’s hard to say which has gained
the more notoriety out of the gourd
Jonah or Joseph, the Governor of this
triskaidekarchy, (l reckon it as the
last of the original thirteen colonies.)
Both had commissions—the one from
Jehovah and the other from Georgians.
The one was commissioned as envoy
extraordinary to hold a camp-meeting
at Nineveh, and the other to dispense
‘wisdom, justice and moderation” to a
job lot of his Georgian constituents.
[’he one laid down on i is commission
and reposed in the shin • of his gourd;
the other repaired to the Governor’s
oflice and began the fulfillment of his
campaign pledges, and invited callers
to moisten their guzzles with water
drank from his Cherokee gourd. The
one vexed ‘‘Heaven’s all-ruling Sire”
by his disobedience, and did penance
by wearing a whalebone overcoat three
days and three nights; the other was
assailed by a partisan press for “adopt
ing the methods of a demagogue.” He
was rapped over the head with his
gourd from Maine to Mexico, from
Clem to California, by hysterical space-
writers, who could see nothing hut a
germ factory in the gurbernatoria!
gourd. The one was made to eat hum
ble pie and prophesy hot times for
gentlemen of Nineveh, which prophesy
failing to manifest, greatly peeved him ;
the other sits steady in the boat of
state and flings his ultimatum to the
disgruntled grouchers. The gourd still
hangs serenely by the water-cooler in
tlie Governor’s ante-room, and men

Coweta has a lot of good farmers,

opinion as to the most successful far

Potts. 1 would not he understood as
saying I know them all, hut out of sev
eral hundred who have made a success
of their vocation Mr. Potts bears the
palm. He is among the few who never
get too much rain. He says he’s had
many crops ruined for want of rain,
hut not one by a superfluity of mois
ture. This is obvious. He always
fertilizes liberally, and it takes flugens
of rain to make a crop thus prepared.

ex-Gov. Smith is still to rule the State,

much danger of the ex-Governor run

loup garou with which to keep our

warm partisans who admire him, and

to make pyrotechnic displays of their

It is true Col. Stallings was opposed by
a splendid young man, but a majority
of the people seemed to want him to

rancor, our level-headed Governor
yielded to their demands. Hooray for

to higher honors in the line of his pro
