Twenty years ago sixteen million per sons were living in "dry" territory in the United Stales, and State wide pro hibition was in elfect in three States. Elsewhere it was regarded as a doubt ful experiment. Nation wide prohibi tion was unthought of then. To day To per cent, of the square miles of area of the Unittd States is "dry.” More than forty nine million persons are living in "dry" territory, nnd State-wide prohibition has been es tablished in fourteen of our forts eight States Elsewhere the people of many townships and counties have decided to ! dispense with the traffic in alcoholic beverages, under local option The movement for nntion-wido prohibition! has attained such strength that it is recounted us one of the greatest issues i before the country For the first time i in history the question lias been voted 1 en in Congress, n majority of members el the House going ell record in favor of the now famous Hobson resolution for an amendment to the Federal Crnstitution prohibiting the manu facture, importation and sale of all intoxicating beverages. The resolu-! lion failed of adoption for lack of a two-thirds vote, but already it is be ing predicted that prohibition will be come a live issue in the !“residential campaign next year. I he Alabama Legislature passed a State wide prohibition bill tins week, both House and Senate favoring the treasure by decisive majorities. and the haystacks must lie moved home. This is an important 'moving.'and all (ieorgia will rejoice when it takes place. Times are hard now, and it is u good time to start this‘moving.' The pro gressive' farmer will lie found in front." Speaking of game laws, a North (ieorgia editor recommends the follow ing additional legislation upon the null- ject- "Hook agents may be shot between Oct, I and Sept. 1; spring poets from March I to June 1; automobile speed demons from Jan. 1 to Jaw. 1; rond hogs from April 15 to April 15; amateur hunters from Sept. I to Feb. I; war talkers no closed season. Any man who accepts a paper for two years and then, when the lull is presented, says 'I never ordered it,' may be killed on sight and shall lie buried face downward in quick lime, so as to destroy the germ and prevent the spread of the infection." CVimmunicntcri. Will Coweta Support Demonstration Work Again? Mr. It. 1). Cole, president of the County Chamber of Commerce, has in formed me that Coweta will not likely carry on demonstration work in 1915. His authority for making the statement was that the people bail not responded satisfactorily to the r,quest for funds with which to support too work. Upon the strength of tins statement I was transferred by the Department to my home county, Stephens, to serve ss agent this year. I am perfectly willing to leave the work in this county, but am not willing to see it stop with only this short trial. Ten months is not long enough to gel filial results. It would lie unwise for a man to have his life in sured, pay the initial premium, and when the next came due to drop the policy. Coweta lias only paid the initial premium. 1 believe Coweta is unwilling to let seventy odd counties forge ahead of her this year. Her great band of Corn Club hoys nei ds looking after; her splendid Central Four-crop Club needs attention; her Canning Club girls are as worthy and ambitious as those of any other county. Her adult farmers undertaking to grow alfalfa and other new crops should be encouraged, and those begin ning to raise hogs on u more extensive scale should have assistance when they want it. Hut who will do tins? "Every body's business is nobody’s business;" so h man should be employed to do the work. If the people want such a man prompt action should bo taken. Whit field, Sti phens, Wilkts, Wayne. Codec, l.owndes. and many other counties in the State, are supportin'- both a Can ning Club Agent and a Demonstration Agent, and have bei n doing so for some time. Surely Cowot a cannot afford to sit still and he outstripped in this groat work. Yorv respectfully. H. Ci. Wiley. County News Items Interesting Facts Gathered During tin Week by Our Ucgulur Correspondents. I3C TURIN. The writer attended the funeral nf Mrs. Elizabeth Wortham on Thursduy lust, complying with a request made by this good woman many years ago. Dur ing the lifetime of the late Dr. J. H. Hall, who was then her pastor, she ex pressed the wish that he and the writer would officiate at her funeral when she died. The lamented Dr. Hall preceded her to the grave several years ago, and it was left to the writer to perform the sad office requested by deceased. We formed acquaintance with Mrs. Worthum forty-seven years ago, nnd the pleasant relationship thus established continued until her death. During the long pe riod that we served Bethlehem church as pastor we frequently enjoyed her hospitality. It was her custom always to usk visiting ministers to otrer a prayer before leaving her home, and ahe seemed to derive much spiritual com fort from this simple service. Now this consecrated Christian woman, who had been faithful to her church and to nil other duties laid upon ho - through life, lias gone to enjoy the inheritance re served to those who love the Lord. The bereaved relatives have our sincere sympathy. We met with the good people of Pleasant. Hill church Saturday, but ow ing to the disagreeable weather did not MADRAS. The farmers of this section are get ting impatient about the weather. Hut little plowing has been done up to date, on account of the continued rains. Many of them arc anxious to begin preparations for another 7c. cotton crop. Mr. Joel Patterson, of Opelika, Ala., was the guest of Miss Lucile Coggin Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Wortham, of New- nan, spent Sunday with iho latter's parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. S. Whitte- more, near this place. Mr. arid Mrs. C. F. Wood spent Saturday in Newnun. Mr. C. T. Heavers spent a few days this week with his parents near Mt. Carmel. Mrs. J. F. Cook visited her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. H. Hayes, of Liber ty community, Tuesday.

There has boon much moving nnd shifting of homes in this part of the county — more from habit, perhaps, than necessity. A spirit of restless ness seems to have taken possession of many people, and so they move from place to place—all hoping to improve their condition, we presume. With the increase of criminals in Coweta county we do not see the neces sity of employing the convicts of other counties at t x rbit it prices to work lour roads, not to speak of the addition- j nl cost for board, guard hire, etc. No road-working going on in this part of son i> to-dav a proud grandfather A k * u ’ LVUn '. v that has improved the con-, mi.- j It', hov, the son of Mr. and Mrs. I dttion of the roads—but the tax goes 1 Francis H S \ i n, has made its appear- on all the samel B. mice at tin- White House.
