CHILDREN S DAY SERVICE8. A service in honor of the mem ory of Jefferson Davis was con ducted at the court house last Sat urday morning, June 3rd, on the 97th anniversary of Mr. Davis' birth. The service was conducted under the auspices of the Daugh ters of the Confederacy, being in charge of Mrs. Thomas J. Jones, President of the local chapter. Col. George H. Carmical pre sided in the meeting. The invoca tion was by Rev. W. J. Cotter; af ter which Jefferson Davis’ favorite hymn, “How Firm a Foundation,” was sung. Hon. W. A. Turner was presented as the orator of the occasion. He made an interesting address, citing many facts in the career of Mr. Dfcvis with which the public is unfamiliar. Of these, the facts that Jefferson Davis’ fa ther once lived in Georgia, near Augusta, and that Abraham Lin coln was sworn into'•the United States service as a captain of vol unteers in the Black Hawk Indian War, are among the least known. Both Davis and Lincoln were na tives of Kentucky. They were born in the same county—Davis in 1808 and Lincoln in 1809. After the conclusion of Major Turner’s address, Dr. G. A. Nun nally, Revs. J. S. Hardaway and W. J. Cotter, and Commander John B. Goodwyn made interesting talks in reference to the life, char acter and achievements of Jeffer son Davis. A feature of the program was Mrs. James E. Brown's rendition of*the beautiful song, “There is Land.” Col. Carmichael announced that Crosses of Honor had been bestow ed upon the following named vet erans. J. D, Arnold, Co. B, lot Ga. Oav.; W.

As there are no excep tions made, of course we consider general; and while these re marks may fit the mill people of almetto, it does groat injustice to other mill people. I have lived among the people of two different mills and know whereof I speak. A few years back, when the price of cotton was as low as 4 and cents per pound, farmers from all parts of the country, seeing themselves unable to make a liv ing and educate their children, loft the farms and moved to various cotton mills. And after finding better days for themselves and better opportunities for their chil dren, tht-y cannot be induced to go back to the farm; thus giving mill owners a much better class of operatives and citizens. For instance we take Newnan cotton mills. It is furnished with good school house and nine months school each year, abso lutely free to the operatives, and provided with as good teachers, 1 suppose, as the city affords. Dur ing the present year they have been provided with a kindergarten building and furnished with the best of instructors; of all which the mill people are proud. They have access to a splendid library in town. In fact, our opportunities are much better here than in the country or in a great many smaller towns. I feel that if Mrs. S. m. D. had been with us on last Thurs day evening at the closing exer cises of our mill town school, she would have found it about as nec essary for the next General As sembly to enact compulsory edu cational laws for somi; other class es as well as the mill people. As to the operatives here, we can say they all make good citi- HON. CLARK HOWELL, Gaiuli(lnti) tor Governor. BY THE WAY. the Sunday School are cordially invited.

The pillars built up under the kitchen were defective, and soon after the jack screws were removed from be neath it, the building collapsed and became a complete wreck. / George P’incannon, who is about Judge L.

Some of them own good farms of their own, but prefer to live here; from the fact their op portunities are better, their pro tection is better; and for quietness of nights and Sundays we will put Newnan mill town against any place. Better people cannot be found, as a whole, and just where their peculiarity comes in I can not see. Shyness and antagonis tic qualities don’t fit our people; country men, merchants, doctors and all other classes come and go amongst us in perfect safety and we can prove by the whole police force of Newnan that they have less trouble in null town than any other part of the city. As to compulsory education, we would not object to it at all; and as to a child labor lav/, the cotton n.ill people have it; tor it is posi tively against the laws of Georgia to work a child under 12 years of age. Now, while the compulsory law is being passed for the mill people, extend the child labor law to the farmer and town; for we of ten find children on the farm and messenger boys in town and little fellows tramping the mud and tak ing the weather as it comes trying to sell papers and various other things, who arc under twelve years of age; who, in our opinion, had better be in a good cotton mill out of the weather and cold. Mill Woman. I was walking with Mr. Edward Buchanan, a leading citizen and manufacturer of Newnan, yester day, and learned something. “Aside from the fact that Cow eta County seems protty solid for Hoke Smith,” said he, "I want to mention a surprising thing. Among his supporters down there are several of tho hitherto machine politicians. They are enthusiastic for him. I hear that the same is the case in Troup and Muscogee, in both of which counties Smith has a great following. This means that the supporters of slate meth ods are breaking away. It is an astonishing fact.” Not so astonishing after all, friend Ed. It is natural tor poli ticians to leave a sinking ship and scramble into the band wagon. And just as Mr. Buchanan says, “The people interpret this new and interesting movement to mean that these men see the hand-writ ing on the wall!”—Smith Clayton in Tuesday’s Atlanta Journal.
