Herald and tfdwrtiser. NEWNAN, FRIDAY, DEG. 24. OWE DOLLAR A YEAR. A Bishop Wilmer Anecdote. The following anecdote appeared in a recent issue of the Confederate Veter an : "Bishop Wilmer, of Alabama, was a very straightforward man, with a fac- slty for saying good-naturedly sharp things to, rather than about, people. "Boon after the Civil War Bishop Wilmer went to a Northern city to ask aid for a Confederate orphans’ home in which he was interested. Tkere was a dinner in his honor, and after dinner the bishop was begged to tell a story. Me replied that he hadn’t any story. ‘But.’he added, ‘I’ve got a conundrum : Why are the Southerners like Lazarus?’ "The guests, who were all Union men, suggested many answers. The Southerners were like Lazarus because they were i>oor, because they ate the crumbs from the rich man’s table, be cause—because of everything anybody < owld guess. " ‘No,’ said the bishop, 'you’re all wrong. We’re like Lazarus because’ and he smiled blandly ‘because we’ve been licked by dogs.’ "A roar of laughter went around at that, for the bishop’s utter unrecon structedness was always one of his charms. Everybody laughed hut one man. who became indignant. ‘Bishop,’ he said, 'if you think we’re dogs, why have you come up here for our money for the money of dogs?’ "The bishop chuckled. ‘My friend,’ ■aid he, ‘the hair of the dog is good for the bite. That’s why I have come.’ ” Don’t Forget the Poor. Katant'in News. During the Christmas holidays, dur ing the good cheer and happiness that will prevail in your prosperous homes, don’t forget the less fortunate around you, the sick, the afflicted, the be reaved. the homeless, the widow and the orphan, etc. Christmas shoudl be a religious festival not a drunken de bauch—and every living thing on earth is at least entitled to a kind word or a sincere congratulation or sympathy, .lust these is all that is needed to brighten and strike a responsive chord in many a dear and stuggling heart. Others need something more substan tial in addition. All should be provid- cdjfor on this day. We have nearly all been blessed too much, and our wants too bountifully supplied, to admit of ns permitting anyone to go hungry, cold or suffer for any noceasnry on Christmas. This ought to be the day for substantial charity and sincere heart warming in our cnlondar. We learn that there are no organizations in Ea- tonton to look after these pleasures for pleasures they should he—which makes the individual responsibility all the greater. Devote just a small por tion of your time and substance even to making others happy and you will lind that it will bring ronl, true happi ness to you. It is the greatest thing in religion after all, so far as self-conduct is concerned. This Is Worth Rememberinc.

"An Italian with a piano organ was turning the handle of his machine rap idly. but not a note was to be heard. 4 stopped at onee. What on earth could be the matter?" The speaker, an advertising agent, smiled. "Finally," ho said, “1 went up c to thk> man. ’’ ‘A break-down?’ I asked. "He pointed to a small plncard the organ’s front, and I read : " ‘The interior of the instrument has been removed. The relief that in con sequence you experience is as nothing compared with that which immediately follows a dose of Surecure Cough Mix ture.' "It was an original ad.,’’ the expert ended, "and I followed it up. From what the Surecure people told me, I fotind that the same ingenuity and tnouey pat in legitimate newspaper advertising would have brought 50 pe cent, more returns." Mrs. S. Joyce, of Claremont, N. H. writes: "About a year ago 1 bought fwo bottles of Foley’s Kidney Kdmedy It cured me of a severe ease of kidney trouble of several years’ standing. It certainly is a grand medicine and 1 heartily recommend it. Bold by all druggists. Ready for the Summer Boarder. Jsdirn’s Library. The dignified president of a well- nown and flourishing New England college, in his moments of relaxation, teUa the following story at his own expense: One summer some years ago he spent vacation of several weeks at a farm house in a Maine town. The next sea son he received a letter from his former boarding mistress inquiring if he would ke to return. In reply he stated that he would be very glad to pass another summer va cation with her, provided some needed changes wore made about the place. "First," wrote the college president, •your maid Mary is persona non grata, being anything but neat and orderly in er ways, and if she is still with you I trust you will at least not allow her to wait on the table. "Secondly, I would suggest that the sanitary conditions on your place would be greatly improved if the pig sty were moved back a few rods far ther from the house or done away with Hogether. 1 will wait until 1 hear from you before deciding on coming." The somewhat peculiar college pres ident was reassured by the receipt of the following: Mary has went. We hain’t had no hoga on the place since you was here last summer. Be sure and come.” Once there was a man who bought a beautiful gold brick for which he paid the sum of $10 or $15, although it looked exactly as if it were worth ten or fifteen thousand. Then ho took it home, and, opening his ledger, made an entry which mate rially .swelled his assets. Then ho mortgaged his homo and bought an automobile and a season ticket for the opera and gave a large dinner at Sherry's. And why should he not, for wa» he not a rich man, and could he not prove it by his ledger? And then one day it occurred to him to examine his gold brick a little more closely. Whereupon he found that it was worth only 10 or 15 cents. He lost confidence immediately, and the effort he made to get rid of the brick brought on a severe panic. There are twenty million acres of pine-garden forest standing in Prussia to-day. Half of it belongs to the peo ple in common, either to the State or to the villages. It paid forty years ago an average profit of eighty cents an acre per year. To-day it pays $1.05 an acre. In twenty years, when it is more mature, it will pay three dollars nn acre, net profit, and, in addition to its protective value, will return, from the common forest alone, an income of $80,000,00u a year to the people. It furnishes all the firewood and small lumber of Prussia, paper stock, and other valuable materials, besides pro tecting the streams, and holding down and improving the land.—John L. Mathews in Everybody's Magazine. LOVE FOR TITLES. Ths Way ths Average German Durger Lengthens His Name.

A well-known scientist was lecturing on the sun’s rays, nnd in’the course of his remarks said: “It is an established fact that the sun is gradually but sure ly losing its heat, and in the course of some seventy millions of years it will be exhausted ; consequently this world of ours will be dead, and, like the moon, unable to support any form of life.” At this juncture a member of the audience rose, in an excited manner, and Batd: 'Pardon me. Professor, hat how many years did you say it would be be fore this calamity overtakes us?” The Professor: ’’Seventy millions, sir. ” ‘Thank Cod,” was the reply. “I thought you said seven millions.” TAMING A BIRD.

Let him know that he can never IniTe that particular tiling unless he takes It from you. ami lie will soon learn, if you are patient and do not disconcert him b.v fixing your eyes upon him. After this he will more readily take it from your lips, nnd then when von let him out of his cage, after the first excitement is over, he will come to you. especially if you have a call to which you have accustomed him. and accept the dainty from you while free. As soon as he becomes really con vinced that you will not hurt him or try to catch him or interfere in any way with his liberty he will give way to Ills boundless curiosity about yon. lie will pull your hair, pick at your eyes and give you as much of his com pany as yon desire.—New York Press. A minister of the gospel one Sabbacn announced to hia flock that he would *ave to leave them, as lie was called to another field.

Gene, who is four years old, was de lighted recently when the stork brought a long-coveted baby sister. He went forthwith to announce the glad tidings to the neighbors. To his surprise they were not inclined to believe him, especi ally Edward, his chum, who stoutly scoffed the idea of a new arrival at Gene’s house. With trembling lips Gene ran to his mother and threw himself, sobbing, against the bed. "Just think, mother,” he wailed, "Edward won’t believe I've got a baby sister. And you know’’—here his sense of the world’s ingratitude grew strong er and he wailed afresh—-"you know how good I was to hitn when they had kittens over at his house!” Here is Relief for Women.

At thirteen, a writer In Le Figaro saya. he mani fested an Irresistible Inclination toward the stage, an Inclination which tils la ther steadfastly strove to repress. "Don't devote so lunch time to those dramas.” his father used to say. "You have learned a good trade, the business Is running well, and you shall be my successor.” A 'number of years after Constant bad made his way Into general favor his father, who took pride lti hia lioy'a success, hut could never quite get over the feeling that Constant should have been n linker, was congratulated upon his son’s eminence. “I remember.” said the old man. "that Constant was a good baker. He would have gone far hi the trade." Blowing Up the Locks. Would It tie easy to blow up Htid de stroy a lock canal by the malicious use of dynamite or other high explosive? The question has been debated much In connection with the l'nimma raunt. The Engineering News calls attPiitlou to the fact that an attempt made iu 1UDO to wreck the Welland canal In this way produced surprisingly small results. After two weeks' examination the two men concerned selected I or It 24. and each lowered a satchel con taining dynamite and a fuss to the water behind the gate at each end of the lock.

Referring to the existing hope in the South that the Republican revolt in the West against the Payne-Aldrich tariff law will bring about both Democratic ascendancy and a real revision of the tariff, the Washington Post pointedly observes: ‘‘The heavy toll the free trade South has paid to the protected North for many years should De added to the race issue in accounting for Southern solidarity. Nor should the fact be last sight of that the South feels that it has been mulcted of many mil lions in the matter of pension appropri ations, all of which has gone to the en richment of the North. While it can not expect to get relief from the war burden except by the slow process of the law r of nature, the South is looking forward to a time when the inequalities of the tariff will he wiped out and the General Government restored to the ba sis of a square deal for all sections.” Discussing the same subject recently, the New Orleans Picayune truthfully asserted that for many years the Gov ernment of the United States has been "carried on chiefly for the benefit of the States north of the Potomac and Ohio rivers. ” The South has been "solid” because of such manifest and long-continued in justice as this, as well as because of the negro question and because the majority of our people for a hundred years have preferred the political prin ciples taught by Thomas Jefferson to those of the old Federalist party, to those of the Whigs, and during the last half century to the principles, or lack of principles, represented by the Repub lican party. Still Pursuing Gordon Lee. Washington Herald. Hon. Gordon Lee, of the Seventh Georgia district, has been kept unusual ly busy for the past few days welcom ing numerous visiting constituents "to our fair city. ” No less than half a dozen noble Ro mans—Rome being the largest, and most prosperous city in Mr. Lee’s dis trict-called on the gentleman yester day, among them being Judge Joel Branham, Hon. W. H. Ennis and bride, and Hon. J. Nephew King, president, of the Manufacturers’ and Merchants’ Association, and leading citizen gener ally. Representative Lee, all smiles and affability, as usual, was conducting a large assortment of this distinguished company around about thecapitol Tues day, when his immediate colleague, Hon. William G. Brantley, was appeal ed to for information concerning the "whys” and "wherefores” of that particularly impressive aggregation. "Why,” said “Brantley, thatisan up rising of the people, come to Washing ton demanding that Lee run for Con gress again. He is trying to sneak out of it, you know, and his aggressive con stituency is determined that he shall do nothing of the kind.” When confronted with the Brantley explanation, Mr. Lee resolutely refused to confirm or deny.

One of the principal constituents of blood is plasma, a healing property. Where the circulation is pure this element of the blood, which is of a glutinous or sticky nature, performs the necessary work in healing all sores, wounds and lacerations. It does this by sticking or joining the parts together, while nature causes a knitting of the tissues and solidifies the place. This healing property is frequently destroyed by impure accumulations iu the blood, and this vital fluid not only loses its power to heal, but becomes a source of irritation and disease to anv open sore or ulcer ou the body. Constantly it discharges its morbid matters into the place, and gradually it causes the infection to spread, and the sore enlarges. The morbid matter in the blood comes from different causes. A long spell of debilitating sickness, which breeds disease germs in the system, the retention of the refuse matters of the body because of a sluggish condition of th< eliminative members, a continued ma larial state of the system, inherited bau blood, etc., are usually responsible. S. S. S. heals sores and ulcers li the very simplest way. It just goes into the circulation, and removes the impurities and polluted matter that are the means of keeping the ulcer open then the sore is bound to heal. S.S.S. is the greatest of all blood purifiers, amt not only does it cleanse the circulation but it adds every necessary property to it to promote good health. It is of the very greatest tonic value, and those who have been weakened and run down by the constitutional drainage of an old. sore will find it the very remedy needed. S.S.vS. docs not simply cause a scab to come over an old sore, but beginning at the bottom it heals the place permanently by building new tissue and filling in the place with firm, healthy flesh.

The symptoms of kidney trouble are so unmistakable that they leave no ground for doubt. Sick kidneys ex crete a thick, cloudy, offensive urine, full of sediment, irregular of passage or attended by a sensation of scalding. The back aches constantly, headaches and dizzy spells may occur, and the vic tim is often weighed down by a feeling of languor and fatigue. Neglect these warnings and there is danger of dropsy, bright’s disease, or diabetes. Any one o,' these symptoms is warning enough to begin treating the kidneys at once. Delay often proves fatal.
