Nobody knows of tho work it takes
To k**ep the home together;
Nobody knows of tho steps it takes.
Nobody knows but mother:
Nobtxiy listens to childish woes
Which kisses only smother;
Nobody's pained by the mighty blow,
Nobody knows of the sloeploRH care
Restowed on baby brother!
Nobody knows of the dreamless nights.
Nobody knows but mother.
Nobody knowH of the lessons taught
Of loving one another;
Nobody knows of the patience sought,
Nobody knows of the anxious fears
Lest darlings may not weather
Storms of this life in the coming years,
Nobody knows but mother.
Nobody knows of the tearfvthat start,
The grief she’d glndly smother;
Nobody knows of the breaking heart—
Nobody clings to tho wayward child,
Though scorned by every other,
Leads it. so gently from pathways wild.
Nobody can but mother.
NoWxly knows of the hourly prayers
For him, our erring brother;
Pride of her heart, once so pure and fair.

The Indispensable Weekly.
The weekly press of the State is com
menting to no little extent on ^he an
nouncement of the Washington Repor
ter and the Early County News—two of
the best of Georgia’s country papers—
that, beginning with the first of the
year, the subscription rates of the pa
pers in question will be increased from
$1.00 to $1.00. Many express admira
tion for their “courage,” tinged with a
touch of envy, possibly.
There should be no fear of the result.
It has long been a marvel to the pub
lishers of daily newspapers how it was
that the country weekly could sell for 2
cents a copy under the most favorable
circumstances and the most careful
business management. That more of
them haven’t raised their subscription
price long before this is the mystery
The weekly paper is absolutely indis
pensable. It fills its own field, a field
that the dailies, even in these days of
rural free delivery, cannot, and should
not, hope to fill. The personal comings
and goings of its subscribers, the edi
tor’s intimate comments on the life and
occurrences of the community from
week to week, the condensed news of
the State and the world are eagerly
read by all its constituency.
Relieving that the daily paper has no
right to enter this field, The Telegraph
several years ago discontinued its cum
bersome weekly department. The fact
that The Telegraph did not lose a sub
scriber traceable to this departure
proved conclusively that its State cir
culation depended on the home papers
for this class of news, and that the dai
ly paper which devotes spdee to it is
wasting its white paper and money.
It is to be hoped that every weekly of
merit in the State will follow the lead
of the Washington Reporter and Early
County NewB. The weekly paper costs
more than a dollar a year for white pa
per and distribution, and the circulation
department should be self-sustaining by
There can be no doubt of the success
of this experiment. The local weekly
is indispensable to its community and
the State. It reflects its own views and
those of its local people, and these
views go to make up the sentiment of
the State. Georgia weeklies compare
favorably with those of any other sec
tion of the United States, and they de
serve rhe loyal support of their com
“Work Like H—1 and Economize”
The European war, with its resultant
disorganization of cotton values, has
brought forth a multitude of counsel
for the farmer. Of course, some of the
“plans” advanced are good and helpful.
One of the best and cleverest that has
come to The Reporter’s knowledge was
that given by Mr. George M. Boddie,
who is himself a progressive and suc
cessful farmer of the Mountville dis
Mr. Boddie received a letter from a
Mr. J. J. Hodges, of Blaekshear, Ga.,
stating that, the writer had seen Mr.
Boddie's photo in the Atlanta Journal,
and asked him for his advice on farm
ing. He stated that he would he much
obliged for any suggestions, and that
he would do whatever Mr. Boddie ad
Mr. Boddie promptly replied, stating
that as he did not know the character of
the soil he could not advise specifically
as to what to plant or the mode of cul
tivation. Concluding, he said:
“1 note, however, that you state you
are willing to do just as I advise. In
view of this fact, I will give you a tip
as to how I made my start:
'* 'Early to bed, early to rise;
Work like h—1 and economize.’ ”
It strikes The Reporter that Mr. Bod
die has expressed a whole sermon in a
Sick Two Years With Indigestion.

fited through using two or three bot

Predicts Prosperity for Georgia
Hon. J. D. Price, State Commissioner
of Agriculture, reads in the heavens the
signs of prosperity for Georgia farmers
in 1915. Fanners have learned things
this past year, he said in a statement
..he other day, among them being the
necessity for diversification.
There will be less cotton next year.
For one thing, a great many farmers
have sold their mules, through force of
necessity, and thus lack the stock nec
essary to work a cotton crop. Natural
ly, he said, they will turn to other
“The Ceorgia farmer is changing his
methods, and changing them fast,” he
said. “There is a revolution going on in
the State. Men traveling through South
and Middle Georgia have told me of
more newly-killed hogs swinging from
poles on every farm than ever before.
There are plans afoot to organize Hour
mills, to operate produce exchanges and
to give credit on grain warehouse cer
. “I have observed, and also have been
told, of a great lack of mules on farms
all over the State. Farmers, needing
the money, have sold thousands of mules
for low prices. J am sorry to see this,
but it is significant; it means two things
—it means that cotton will be reduced
on many farms by necessity, if for no
other reuson, for mules are needed to
work a cotton crop.
“It means also that many farmers,
already starred on diversification, have
sold their mules because they don’t
want to plant cotton and know they
won’t feel their loss. In place of cot
ton, they will sow grain crops, which
don’t need so much mule power; they
will plant peas; they will raise bogs and
cattle; and they can work corn and
truck with what mules they have left.”
The Commissioner enumerated a few
of the reports which have come to him
of significant efforts at diversification,
including the supplanting of cotton
plantations near Middleton, Fortsonia,
Pearle and Bainbridge by cattle farms.
In Hart county, at Mole.na and at La-
vonia, car-loads of thoroughbred cattle
have been bought for the establishment
of stock n,i ,. s enterprises. Packing
plants at various centers, (lour mills at
Vidftlbi, , V/nshingtnn and in Sumter
county, a corn and grain market and a
grain elevator in Columbus, are among
other indications he cited of the new
order of things.
Listen, daughter. Don’t go moping
around with your eyes all puffed up nnd
red from tears, simply because you
can’t have clothes that wouldn’t look
good anywhere except on one of (hose
freak magazine-cover girls. I know
it's a pretty tough old world, from your
range of vision, because your ma and
I have forbidden you to wear skirts
that are too high and waists that are
too low. 1 know, child, that some of
the other girls are chasing around the
streets in costumes that would shame a
burlesque troupe, and attracting lots of
attention; but did you ever notice just
what kind of attention they attract?
Of course you haven't. You don’t
happen to he within earshot when
Borne of the boys say what they really
think about the “other girls.” Thank
God, you don't. You’re too young to
know those things yet awhile.
You sny the other girls laugh nt your
simple, pretty little frocks and at your
freckles. Let ’em laugh! That shows
they are the other kind of girls. Your
mother and 1 met each other long, long
ago. 1 loved her enough to ask her to
marry me, and she cared enough to
answer “yes.” We’ve been happy
ever since, haven’t wo, ma? Our
marriage took. It didn’t take any
split skirt or silhouette gown to
make me fall in love with your mother.
She never hud such contraptions on in
her life. And I didn’t go prancing up
and down the street with a monkey hat
on the back of my head and a cigar
ette poked out in front of my face.
Let the other girls smile, but just
wait for the finish. You won’t find the
decent young chaps marrying any of
the “other girls.”
That’s right;—have a good cry if you
want to; but remember, Dad knows
bust. So put on that pretty dress and
we’ll all go lo the moving pictures.
Hurry up! It’s getting late. That’s
Religion and War.
TuHcalooRn (Ain.) Gazotto.
A great many of the papers are com
menting on the fact that there is a
great religious wave sweeping over
Europe, caused by the war. This is
natural. When a man or a nation is
brought face to face with things that
ho cannot control he naturally looks to
a higher power for guidance and help.
When thousands and thousands of men
leave their homes and go to the front to
face implements of war that they know
mean death, they become still for the
once nnd their thoughts go back to the
time when they knelt at their mothers’
knees and think of the childish prayers
that they were accustomed to lisp.
It is a time for serious thought,
with these poor soldiers lying out on
the field with nothing but the stars
for a entropy and listening to the roar
of the cunnon a few miles away. They
cannot tell but that a shell will come
whistling their way any minute and
they be swept into eternity. And
think of the mothers, wives, sisters,
sweethearts at home! They are lying
awake praying to the Giver of all gifts
to spare their loved ones, if it be His
will. Is this condition nor, enough to
cause men to pray, to have a religious
conviction that nothing else could have
produced? As long as men are pros
perous and out of danger a large num
ber of them never think of religion.
But let affliction come to their homes,
let death stalk among their loved ones,
it is then that they realize for the first
time their utter helplessness and their
thoughts turn to God. Would it not be
better for all mankind to live pure,
holy lives without being brought to an
awakening by some family or national
calamity? It is always best to be pre
pared, “for you know not the day nor
the hour when the summons will come.”
There is nothing like being ready.
Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 19.— In response
to the suggestion that a. plan of mar
keting foodstuffs grown in Georgia in
place of cotton should be provided so
that the farmers may be given some
assurance of finding a sale for such
products, the State Department of
Agriculture has taken hold of the mat
ter and a co-operating marketing or
ganization is about to materialize.
Commissioner of Agriculture J. D.
Price and Assistant Dan G. Hughes
have given the matter careful consider
ation, and while it will not be organized
in connection with the department, the
organizations will work together in har
Several prominent Georgians have
been interested in the matter and the
plans are now about complete for a co
operating concern whose business will
be to bring the consumer and producer
into touch with each other and place
the surplus food crops where they are
No details of the plan have yet been
given out and probably will not bo for
several days, but it is known that the
organization will be on the line of the
Georgia Fruit Growers’ Association,
which has had splendid success in hand
ling Georgia peaches and other fruit in
Northern and Eastern markets.
In all the agitation for a reduction of
cotton acreage and the urgent sugges
tion of more food crops, the farmer has
come back with the reply: “Where
will I sell food after I raise it?” It is
this marketing organization that pro
poses to supply the answer, also tho
means of disposing of surplus food crops
wherever they are grown in the State.
So important was the matter consid
ered in South Carolina that it was dis
cussed at length by the Legislature of
that State in an extra session a short,
time ago. And it is a matter which
may even receive some attention from
the Georgia Legislature when it rpeets
next, summer. However, it is expected
that the organization now about to be
formed will successfully solve the

One Result of the War.
“As a direct result of tho European
war,” Haiti Commissioner I’rico of the
State Department of Agriculture,
“Georgia will show a year from now
greater progress in diversified crops
and stock-raising than in any previous
twenty years. ”
Good! It is an ill war that does no
body good, and if this war has the ef
fect the Commissioner expects one good
thing may be said about it.
When Georgia becomes a State of di
versified crops, when not one crop but
two crops will represent the greater
part of the results of its agriculture,
no war cun put it in the dumps, tho
failure of no one crop can cause its
people to feel depression—can make its
Thanksgiving Days any Icsb happy.
Along with the growing of a groat
variety of crops on a largo Beale iB go
ing a systematic search for tho best
markets for them, and for ttio best
methods of marketing. That is at it
should be. No better work could be un
dertaken by the various diversifications
of farmers and business men through
out Georgia than that of preparing the
way for tho rupid movement of diver
sified crops to the best markets.
