of those little butterflies of the post to

Madame Folly, must take without a

handed one of these letters yesterday,
and, my spectacles not being handy,
my imagination ran riot until I walked
to my office in search of my aids to

—Cotton is coming in slowly; but,
bless the Lamb! when our farmers
sell a bale they have two-thirds of a
hundred dollars. Though a small crop,
it will leave more money in the country
than a bumper crop would. This should
teach "the man with the hoe” to hoe
less cotton and garner more cash.

—Newnan has produced many fine
business men, but no one of tnem has
made such a phenomenal record in the
business world as iias Mr. McCaslan
Manley, supernitendent of agencies of
the Georgia Life Insurance Company,
of Macon. Unaided and alone he has
achieved a success in the insurance
field that: comes to hut few rnen of his
age. From canvasser he went to the
highest subordinate branches of the
business. Under his skillful manage
ment of the Franklin Life Insurance
Go. in the South, ha more than doubled
its business in a year. His services
have been sought for and obtained by
one or more of the gigantic life com
panies, such as the Equitable and oth
ers of its class. Ttie' board of direc
tors of the Georgia Life Insurance Co.
may congratulate themselves upon se
curing the services of Mr. Manley, for
there are few men so well qualified to
handle that branch of their business
which he represents as himself. He
has the best wishes of his many friends
in Western Georgia.
There has never been anything like
it in Georgia. It stepped into the life
insurance field with more than a mil-
ion dollars in its cofFers. This young
ife insurance giant, the Georgia Life
of Macon, began business less than a
year ago. Such was the confidence of
the business world in the management
that its stock sold for 50 per cent,
above par on its first,sales: and to-day
is worth 100 per cent, above par. This
is the company Mac Manley repre
sents. He was here Thursday and Fri
day negotiating some loans with the
people of Bowdon. To explain the
foregoing, the company has a large
surplus which it is seeking to invest.
While here Mr. Manley sold a big block
of Georgia Life stock. The Georgia
Life is a go, and Mac Manley is at the
helm. Our best wishes attend him.
Now, Mr. Cotton-grower, don’t let
the present hig price of cotton turn
your head. Go right on next year and
plant plenty of wheat, oats and corn,
and enough cotton to make socks.
—I was over in Henry county a few
days ago. While there I met one of
Henry’s best farmers, Mr. John F.
Moss. Some twenty-five or thirty
years ago Mr. Moss fed one of his arms
to a hungry cotton gin, since which
time he has been farming with one
hand. Like many other good men who
stick to business he has made a bushel
of money. This is his plan; Raise your
supplies at home, and make cotton the
surplus crop. He and his neighbors
have a farmers’ club. The purpose of
the club is to offer premiums to each
other for the best acre of wheat, oats,
corn and cotton. This year one of hi s
neighbors made 50 bushels of wheat per
acre, while others made nearly as
much. He made 75 bushels of corn on
an acre, and 75 or 80 bushels of oats
on his entire crop. That’s the way to
farm. Get together and advise with
each other in farmers’ clubs. This will
fill your barns and raise mortgages.

Fort Sumter, which rivaled Port Ar

fort, but the Federals always found a
ready enemy to give him his conge.

pre-eminently "first in war, first in

in the War of the Revolution and the
period of the formation of the nation.
But though Washington in the object

success, and Robert E. Lee surrendered
in defeat, even Washington does not

Virginia had no hesitancy about her
own choice. But the Civil War period
is so recent, its enmities were so in
tense, that there were those who ques
tioned whether the prejudice and bitter
ness had died out. There was a time
not so many years ago when the mere
suggestion that the statue of a Confed
erate commander be placed in the Capi
tol of the United States would have
been greeted by a storm of disapproval;
the politicians would have "waved the
bloody shirt” and shrieked “rebellion”
and "treason.” The manner in which
the presentation of the Lee statue has
been received shows that the period of
hysterical prejudice has passed. It is
To-day throughout the North not a
protest is heard against the acceptance
of the Lee statue by the Government.
Instead of this, it is accepted with en
thusiasm as "erasing the last line of
the Civil War.” Ever since Appomat
tox the figure of Lee has been looming
up larger and larger with the years,
until to-day he is recognized as one of
the greatest leaders of the English-
sneaking race. He typifies all that was
best of the old South and is the inspira
tion of all that is finest in the new. His
great genius as a military commander
is at last universally acknowledged; but
it has been eclipsed by his personality
as the knightliest man of his time.
