TO THOSE WHO ARE NOT BUT OUGHT TO BE READERS OF THE NEWS: Sometimes sample copies of ’In !■: N kwh are ni ailed to persons who air not subsoriliers of this paper.

Nkwh mailed has tin* woids, “Sample < opy” printed at the top of first page in Imld type, No person is expected to or can l»e made to pay lor sample copies ol a newspaper. Therefore, any person may, w ith per fect propriety and freedom, receive from a postotliee or carrier sample copies of Thk Nkwh, w ith the assurance that they will never l>e asked to pay for them. 'fin. Nr:\vH trusts all persons receiving sample copies wj]| jrjyc them careful consideration. It is unfair to condemn l in N i u s w ithout a hearing (or, a reading i and we feel sure I,nt very few people in Coweta county are so narrow-minded sind prejudiced as to he unw illing to read a few sample copies of this paper. Ini Ni;wh seeks patronage on its merits as a newspaper. If neithei panders to prejudice nor hows to puerility. It neither fears to approve right nor to condemn wrong. It proposes to meet all men and all issues in a spirit of candor, fairness and courtesy; hut it does not propose to he a trimmer or a dodger, nor to \eiI its attitude on any question with a multitude of idle words. Tin; Nkwh hits straight from the shoulder and ex presses its sentiments in the plainest Knglish at its command. These are a few words in reference to the principles con trolling the conduct of Thk N kwh. In addition to these things, Till; Nkwh prints the news of Coweta county with impartiality; and as it desires to excell shall endeavor as the days go hy to print more news than any other county paper and to give the people the host service oh tamable in a county paper. This we regard as a laudable ambition; and have no apol ogies to make for possessing that spirit or being guided by its inspiration. Finally, all Til k N kwh asks is that persons who receive sample copies will examine them in a spirit of fairness, and render an unprejudiced verdict as to this paper’s merits and its claims for patronage. If all will do this, Till; N kwh will la* satis fied with their verdict, w hether it is favorable or unfavorable to this paper. CROP REPORTS. BEAN HARVESTING.

Couple this fact with the recent exposure of the widely advertised substitute-coffee that was found to contain an ex cess of very ordinary coffee! Aren’t you convinced by this combined evidence that good, old-fashioned coffee is the best beverage after all? Such coffees are Filson Club, at 85c the pound, and Mac- Veagh’s famous brands—Benito, at 85c; Telmo, at 25c, and Puerto, at 80c. All these are extra quality and perfectly wholesome. They’re economical, too; as a little goes a long way. e sell good bulk coffees at Joe and IT l-2c per pound, and have some other grades, not mentioned above, that are a little higher in price. C. P.

American Cultivator. During the past twelve years we have collected over ONE MILLION ACCOUNTS. Over a million accounts that had been given up as lost by their owners. We make a guarantee unprecedented in the annals of the collection business — TO COLLECT FIVE TIMES THE AMOUNT OF OUR FEE. Until this is done no commission is charged on collections. After it is done our commission is six per cent. No matter WHO you are or WHERE you are we will give you the name and address of somebody you will know for whom we have succeeded in collecting accounts they considered uncollectible. If you have accounts on your books which you have charged to “Profit and Loss” and want to have them turned into CASH, get in communication with us. taint'd it gut lo be held thill “.the mere fuel that certain seeds retain 1 their power of germination for a period ol years when buried in the soil brands the plants w hich they produced as weeds.
