Booker Washington’s Negro Colony.
The purchase of the plantations of
Gov. Comer, of Alabama, containing
18,000 acres, by a person believed to be
acting for Booker Washington, is worth
more than a passing notice. The pur
chase price was $162,000, and it is the
understanding that it is Booker Wash
ington’s purpose to put colonies of ne
groes on the land, which is already in
a high state of cultivation.
Nothing iB said in the dispatch which
carried the account of the purchase as
to what Washington’s plans are, but it
is a reasonable presumption that he in
tends to turn the whole trace into mod
el negro farms, which shall serve to in
spire other negroes to turn their atten
tion to farming, and to point out to
them how to become good farmers. It
is of course very well known that there
are thousands of negro farmers in the
South who own their own land, and
there are many more negro farmers
who rent land. The most of these far
mers are inclined to be shiftless—that
is, they spend their money as fast as
they can get it. If Washington can
teach the negroes to be thrifty, and
create in them a desire for land, we
shall have here in the South a great
many land-owning negro farmers with
in the next quarter of a century. All
over the South land is cheap, and it is
as productive as land in any other sec
tion of the country. Witli cotton worth
anywhere from 10 to 15 cents a pound
it is doubtful if in either the East or
the West can as much money be made
in farming as in the South.
The theory is held that the negro
will gradually be forced out of the
South by the incoming whites, but if
Booker Washington’s experiment suc
ceeds the negroes will not be pushed
out so promptly as predicted. On the
contrary, they are likely to get a foot
hold that will become firmer and broad
er ns the years go by. Washington is
building for the future. He knows that
with ownership of land the importance
of the negro as a citizen will be great
ly increased. Witli such ownership will
come a stronger desire for education
and for wealth in all its forms.
The Farmers’ Union has taken a
stand against white immigration. Its
position is that the land should be held
for the natural increase of the native
ponulation. If Washington can make
his scheme a success and fasten the ne
gro to the soil as a land-owner, the
probability that he will be pushed out
of the South is not very great. As the
negro race is a prolific one a pretty
big share of the lands may pass into its
Iiossession in the course of the next
half century. It is evident that Wash
ington is looking ahead for his race.
Evils of Sunday “Rest.”
Npw York Press.
“Monday is the busiest day of the
week for me,’’said the physician to
the man who had been waiting half an
hour to see him. “I won’t try to put
up a bluff and tell you that my ofiice is
so crowded every day in the week, for
it isn't; but 1 get n grist of office pa
tients nearly every Monday. Every
physician of any reputation has the
same experience. Why? All on account
of Sunday. People do all sorts of fool
ish things on that day. because they
have time to. and they pay for it. In
the first place, people eat indigestible,
rich food on Sunday that they would
not think of eating on any other day.
They cat too much also; in fact, some
people nibble away all day, and in con
sequence they have indigestion—for no
one lias indigestion so quickly or so
acutely as the person who is used to
regular, wholesome living, and once in
a long while tries the unwholesome
food—and a trip to the doctor’s is al
ways in order Monday. Then again,
Sunday gives a person more time to
think of his ills. A man who will sto
ically bear pain on working days and
drive it away by his very snubbing of
it will get frightened at the slightest
ache on Sunday. He gets to thinking
about it and comes to the conclusion
that it is a serious symptom. So he
goes in to see a physician Monday.”

The One-Newspaper Proposition.
This is collecting time with the
Georgia newspapers. In Forsyth, the
merchant pays just half the advertis
ing bills as those of some other towns
of the same class in Georgia, and yet
the enterprises of the city are adver
tised just a- s we ll as 'f there were two
papers here. It is the progressive
business men that support newspapers,
churches i*md public enterprises, and one
newspaper is a big saving to both the
town and county.
A good many towns in the State are
coming to the one newspaper proposi
tion. Sandersviile and Tennille have
just consolidated three papers into one
new paper. Dublin has united two into
one, and Hawkinsville and Cartersville
and other good towns are supporting
the one-newspaper proposition.
The Forsyth newspaper man is more
than pleased with The Advertiser as a
business proposition, and intends to
keep the old paper pure and clean as it
has always been, but, if at any time,
the good citizens of this city want an
other paper in Forsyth they can buy
The Advertiser, for we certainly don’t
want any more of this two-newspaper
business in towns of Forsyth’s class.
All such towns as Newnan, Carroll
ton, Griffin, Jackson and Gainesville
ought to do like Dublin, Hawkinsville,
Forsyth, Sandersviile, Monticello,
Barnesville, Jefferson, Elberton and
Cartersville, and get on to the one-
Pleasures of the Penitentiary.
“I gave such a talk to a client of
mine not long ago on the pleasant fea
tures of prison life,” said a lawyer,
“that I actually got to thinking for a
little while it woijld be a great lark to
spend a few weekEjin a good penitenti
‘You see, the fellow was guilty, and
I knew it. I didn't. see how it would be
possible to clear hum, and I knew he
would get a lighter sentence by pleading
guilty. But I had a job trying to talk
him into changing his plea to guilty.
He said he didn’t think he would ever
get reconciled to life in the penitentiary.
“I told him that, of course, there was
a certain amount of ,prejudice against
living in a penitentiary, but it always
struck me that it wouldn’t be half as
bad if a man made up his mind to like it.
1 ‘The regular hours ought to be a
great thing for a man,’ I told him, ‘and
if you are at all slick you can fix up
some scheme to get out of hard work.
Then you are clear out of prosaic busi
ness affairs of the outer world. You go
to bed at night knowing just what you
are to do the next day, and no one can
get to you to molest you. You won’t
get moro than a couple of years, and
that will just give you time to learn
some good trade. ’
“When I got through he decided to
plead guilty, and I believe he was real

year or two in the pen.”

Dawn of the Age of Cement.
C. H. Cochran*? in Moody’s Magazine for July.
While neither iron nor steel is going
out of use, yet it is certain that the
world is now verging into an age of ce
ment, which is to be the chief construc
tive material of the future. When a
single mammoth skyscraper contains
enough concrete work to pave Broad
way fron; curb to curb, a foot deep for
a length of over two miles; when the
anchorages and approaches of the new
Manhattan bridge requires 65,000 tons
of Portland cement to make the concrete;
when one manfacturer of cement ad
vertised an output of 30,000 barrels a
day—when such conditions surround us,
it is time to pause and consider what
there is about cement-made concrete that
has brought it into such general demand
within a few years.
Because wood, which has been grow
ing scarce, has increased in price, and
because the world has learned that con
crete made with cement is the best and
cheapest building material. Concrete
is an artificial stone made of sand and
broken rock, bound together with ce
ment. Almost any sort of sand and
stone will do, and when properly mixed
with water and about a sixth to an
eighth part of cement, the whole har
dens into a solid mass of strength, and
this strength actually increases with
age and exposure to weather. Instead
of deteriorating under water, cement
grows harder, and its resistance to fire
is superior to any other known cheap
A Useful Interview.
Mrs. Newton had been married near
ly a year, but she still felt that any
question of importance should be an
swered with Mr. Newton’s aid, at
least, if not by him in person. One day
she rang up his out-of-town office, and
her voice had an anxions tone when she
replied to his cheerful “Hello.”
“It’s like this, de'ar,” said this trust
ing young person. “I’m way down
town, for I’ve been shopping, and I’ve
carried Mary’s letter, that I meant to
post when I started out, all around
town with me!”
“Yes,” said Mr. Newton as she
pausd for breath.
“And now I have come in here to
this public telephone,” went on the ea
ger voice, “for I had just 10 cents left,
to ask you whether you thought I ought
to get a special delivery stamp tor

whether I could ride home and let—
“What? Oh—why—of course ! I for

Sketch of Mrs. J. D. Arnold.
On sabbath evening, Oct. 24, Mrs. J.
D. Arnold died at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. A. P. Bowers.
Mrs. Arnold (once Miss Nancy C.
Owens), was a native of Monroe coun
ty, where she was born in 1840; hence,
at the time of her death, she had al
most reached the promised three-score
and ten years. Moving to this county
in 1857, (which date marks the time of
her marriage,) Mrs. Arnold brought
with her her church letter, which she
placed with her husband’s in the Ebe-
nezer Baptist church. Of this church,
she remained an active, zealous, consis
tent member until death. Then, as we
believe, was transferred from the
church militant to the church trium
Mrs. Arnold’s death was as she wish
ed it. A few hours before she was tak
en sick, in conversation with her daugh
ter, she expressed the desire that she
might not outlive her husband, and also
that she might not live to be helpless
and thus a constant care to loved ones.
Owing to ill health, the last thirty-
five or more years of Mrs. Arnold’s life
were spent at home. Here she accom
plished a great and good work. Here
she exerted a strong influence upon her
children and grandchildren. Being de
lirious during the last day of her sick
ness, her mind returned to her own
home and household duties. Of these
things she talked almost constantly with
those who waited at her bedside. For
more than twelve hours, in her delirium
she toyed with the bed covering, mov
ing her hands as if sewing. She talked
of being anxious to finish a piece of
work. Occasionally her daughter could
persuade her to res't, as continual sew
ing was tiring her arms. But she
would rest only a short while, then be
gin again, insisting that she must finish
that work. Thus she continued, hour
after honr. Finally, a little more than
an hour before her death, she moved
the quilt as if folding it up, saying as
she did so, “Now I have finished my
work.” Then, lying back peacefully,
as a little child in its mother’s arms, she
was soon asleep,—asleep to wake on a
brighter and fairer shore.
May the bereaved find comfort in the
thought that hers was a finished work.
Leaving it thus completed, she has
passed to her reward, to hear the “well
done, good and faithful servant.”

Contagious Blood Poison is at the bottom of a great
many old blood troubles. The disease may have been
contracted j’ears ago and some treatment used that re
moved the outward symptoms and shut the virus up in
the system to slumber in the blood, but it only awaited a
favorable opportunity to break out in some form again.
Certain forms of catarrhal troubles, especially where
the bones are affected, scrofulous affections, non-healing
sores, ulcerated membranes, etc., are due to this specific
poison. Perhaps many who are afflicted in this wny are
ignorant of the fact that the seeds of this mighty poison
are still hidden in the blood. Like the deadly serpent,
which is dangerous as long as the faintest spark of life is
left to enable it to sink its poisonous fangs, this powerful
disease will corrupt and defile while the least particle of
its insidious virus remains in the blood.
I iie best time to get rid of Contagious Blood Poison is when the disease
is first contracted, and before its virus so penetrates the blood as to cause
ulcerated mouth and throat, copper-
colored spots, falling hair, etc. Then
of course the victim is saved much
humiliation and suffering; but even
after the poison has become established
in the system it can be removed and a,
cure effected if the blood be thoroughly
purified with S. S. S.
S. S. vS. is tiie greatest of all blood
purifiers. It possesses penetrating-
powers that enable it to go down into
the blood, and remove the last trace of
blood poison. It cures all blood
troubles simply and solely because it
removes the cause from the circulation.
Not only does S. S. S. cure cure Conta
gious Blood Poison when first contracted, but reaches it in any of its stages,
even where the trouble has been inherited. S. S. S. is made entirely of roots,
herbs and barks, and does not contain the slightest trace of mineral in any
form. You canget rid of your old blood trouble if you will take S. S. S. and
allow it to purify the blood. Book on the blood and any medical advice free.
