December, sad December,
Ye royal month of all,
Ye come in robes of grandeur.
To be the old year’s pall;
Thy hoary head is covered
So soft with snowflakes white,
Thy feet doth tread a carpet
Of dry leaves, once ho bright.
December, brave December,
Yu strongest month of all,
Even June with all her roses
Hides when December’s call
ReHounds o’er hill and valley,
Commanding her to stand,
And shiv’ring keep her flowers
’Tid spring breathes o’er the land.
December, gay December.
Ye merry month of all.
Both old and young doth greet thee,
In rich and poor man’s hall;
Warm fires kindle brightly
Affection’s torch to light.
To celebrate thy Christmas.
The day of all days bright.
December, proud December.
Ye champion month of all.
Presidents claim November.
But ye claim One of all;
The greatest of ten thousands,
The Lord in glory came
And chose one day of thy days
And gave it heavenly fame!
December. Christ’s December,
Ye royal month of all;
In robes of kindly splendor
Ye crown him Lord of all,
No wonder that thy footstep
Is slow, majestic, grand.
For from I by frozen portal
A Saviour blessed each land.

A. & W. P. Road Pronounced Phys
j Atlanta Journal, 11th inat.
| The Atlanta and West Point railroad
j is a good one.
If there be any who doubt as to the
truth of this assertion, all that is nec
essary to convince them that the road is
about as near perfect as it is possible
for the work of human hands to be is to
take a trip over the line and gain first
hand knowledge of the fact.
Friday afternoon the annual inspec
tion of the road, made by the officials
and section foremen, was completed
over that section of the main line be
tween this city and West Point, the
inspecting party reaching the Terminal
station at 2:3d o’clock.
Saturday the inspection will cover
the line to Montgomery, after which
the tour will be over for another 12-
month. When the train arrived in At
lanta Friday afternoon a Journal re
porter was on hand to interview the
j leaders of the party, and found them
i in their special car. The railroad men
| received the searcher for news with
courteous cordiality, and insisted upon
! his sharing the bounteous dinner that
they were discussing.
In the car were O. T. Nelson, gener
al road master; T. 0. Walsh, master
mechanic; A. Moritz, train master;
J. F. Andrews, chief train dispatcher,
and J. C. Williams, supervisor.
Mr. Nelson, the genial road master,
acted as spokesman for the ollicial.s,
and described in detail what the trip
was for, and how it was conducted. It
appears that the officers of the road,
in an elfort primarily to raise the road
to the highest possible state of perfec
tion, inaugurated a scheme of competi
tive examination, every phase of the
work of the men having the operation
and maintenance of the line in charge
counting for them in the contest.
The plan as perfected resolved itself
into an annual inspection tour of the
entire system, and every section fore
man makes the entire trip. There are
no men more critical or searching in
their observation of the work of others
than are section foremen, and they
know a good railroad when they see it
and ride over it.
Blank forms are given to each fore
man, and these forms have spaces pro
vided whereon the percentage of per
fection of every dpartment of the road
work can be scored. All the foremen
except the one upon whose section the
marking is to he made score against
each section, the standard of percent-
tion being rated at 10.
In this graduation the foremen score
on line and surface, depot grounds,
frogs and switching, ditching and hank
ing right-of-way, spiking, spacing of
ties, trestles and bridges, section
houses, general appearance, rail joints,
road crossings, water tanks, and all
the other things that enter into the to
tal of railroad maintenance and con
After the entire trip is completed,
Mr. Nelson, the road master, takes up
these average sheets and goes over
them carefully. In addition, he consid
ers all things that can possibly score
against each section, such as defects
and accidents during the year, the cost
of maintenance, and all other things
properly chargeable to the section. It
will be readily seen that Mr. Nelson,
having all the data at hand, can make
a just and accurate judgment of the
actual advancement that each section
has made. He bases his decisions not
only upon the actual condition of the
section, but upon the work that has
been required to raise it to perfection
and keep it there, as well as upon the
practical efficiency thereof.
In order to stimulate the interest of
the foremen in the work, prizes are
awarded annually, the first being $120
in gold for the section showing the best
average, and the second $60 in silver
for the next best. The competition
among the foremen is keen, and the
result has been that the officials stated
Friday that the road was as nearly
perfect as a railroad could be.
After the run Friday the party re
turned to West Point, where they were
16dged at the A. & W. I\ hotel there,
built and owned by the road, and oper
ated under lease. The officials pro
nounce this hostelry to be one of the
best in the State, and are very proud of
it. JAfter reaching Montgomery Satur
day afternoon the tour of inspection
disbanded amid expressions of mutual
esteem from all who made the trip.
"There is a feature of the railroad
life of the Atlanta and West Point
road,” said one of the officers, “that is
unique and that hinds us closer to our
operatives than anything else. This is
the Santa Claus train that we run on
our December pay-day every year. This
will he the second yeur that this train
has been run.
”A commissary car makes the trip
of the entire system with the jiay-car,
arid little gifts are distributed to the
children all along the line. All the
foremen and employees are notified in
advance to have not only their own
children at the station, hut to bring
any other little folk that might ap
preciate Christmas remembrancers.
"The little fellows have learned to
look for Santa Claus train, and this
year there have already been inquiries
as to whether or riot it will come.
There is a man dressed as Santa, and
eveything we can do to make the chil
dren happy is done. The idea origina
ted with Mr. Wickersham, president of
the system, and is very popular.”

THEY INJURE CHILDREN.
Ordinary Cathartics and Pills and
Harsh Physic Cause Distress
You cannot he over-careful in the se
lection of medicine for children. Only
the very gentlest bowel medicine should
ever he given, except in emergency
cases, firdinary pills, cathartics and
purgatives are apt to do more harm
than good. They cause griping, nausea
and other distressing after-effects that
are frequently health-destroying and a
We personally recommend and guar
antee Rexall Orderlies as the safest and
most dependable remedy for constipa
tion and associate bowel disorders. We
have such an absolute faith in the vir
tues of this remedy that we sell it on
our guarantee of money back in every
instance where it fails to give entire
satisfaction, and we urge all in need of
such medicine to try it at our risk.
Rexall Orderlies contain an entirely
new ingredient which is odorless, taste
less and colorless. As an active agent,
it embraces the valuable qualities of the
best known intestinal regulator tonics.
Rexall Orderlies are eaten like candy.
They are particularly prompt and agree
able in action, may be taken at any
time, day or night; do not cause diar
rhoea, nausea, griping, excessive loose
ness or other undesirable effects. They
have a very natural action upon the
glands and organs with which they come
in contact, act as a positive and regula
tive tonic upon the relaxed muscular
coat of the bowel and its dry mucous
lining; remove irritation, overcome
weakness, tone and strengthen the
nerves and muscles, and restore the
bowelp and associate organs to more
vigorous and healthy activity.
Rexall Orderlies completely relieve
constipation, except when of a surgical
character. They also overcome the ne
cessity of constantly taking laxatives to
keep the bowels in normal condition.
There is really no medicine for this
purpose so good as Rexall Orderlies,
especially for children, aged and deli
cate persons. They are prepared in
tablet form, in two sizes of packages:
12 tablets 10 centH, and 36 tablets 25
cents. Remember, you can obtain Rex
all Remedies in Newnan only at our
store—The Rexall Store. The Holt
& Cates Co.
