How l in Dick Russell’s back yard,
The cry raised by Hoke Smith’s
opponents that he is "losing
ground" may be rightfully classed
as dirt—y politics.
The prize Hopper has (lopped
some more, and the constant and
consistent Herald and Advertiser
is beginning to feel at home in the
If the people of Georgia want a
jokesrnith lor governor, instead of
Hoko Smith, they will make no
mistake in electing the Hon.
Richard H. Russell.
All over the State from the op
position is going up the howl that
Hoke Smith is "losing ground."
This howl merely indicates that
the Howell campaign is in the last
stages of desperation.
If Hoke Smith has "lost
ground," as his opponents are try
ing to make the people believe, he
must have had a hundred thousand
square miles or more in his pos
session when the campaign opened.
Rusted arc all of the other al

to sweep Coweta county, and in a
few fleeting days the alleged
boom of the Hon. Dick Russell
will join them in innocuous desue
If the opposition to Hoke Smith
in Coweta wants to try to carry
the county for Howell, Russell,
Kstill or Jim Smith, the job is up
to it; hut the News gives fair warn
ing that something besides a bluff

with neatness and dispatch.
Again the metamorphosis is
complete, and the Herald and Ad

The News discredits the rumor
that Dick Russell has bestowed
the name of Hoke Smith upon the
young Russell who arrived at the
Judge’s home a few days ago.
Doubtless Dick feels that the
name would give Russell, Jr., a
first class start in life; but, of
course, he could not afford to show
his preference for one of his op
ponents in such a public and per
All over the State men and
newspapers opposed to Hoke
! Smith are encouraging an insig
■mficant remnant cf the Populist
party to refuse to return to the
Democratic party and to put a
Populist State ticket in the field.
These fellows are loud in their
professions of devotion to white
supremacy, and yet, they are try
ing by every conceivable scheme
to effect a division of the white
people of Georgia.

THE BIRTH OF WORDS
Some people profess to believe
that Dick Russell is a 22 karat
patriot and that his candidacy for
governor is based on double dis-1
tilled devotion to the cause of the j
dear people. This view of Dick is !
exceedingly amusing to the people !
who know him best. They know 1
that Dick, like every other profes-;
sional politician, desires only to
use the people to further his own j
ends and interests.

A WEALTH OF EXPRESSIONS FROM
THE HUMAN BODY.
Morr Than Four Hundred Word* In
Oar l.anicaaxe Are Helated to the
llaad Alone nnd Almost an Many
Are Derived From the Head.
The human body—Its limbs, fingers,
toes, mouth, nose, curs, bciul and some
of the Internal organs—has originated
hundreds of words. In ona of the
large dictionaries more than 400 are
found related to the band alone und
almost ns many to the bead.
Index, Indicate, predicate, from s
Greek word for finger, mean that
which points out. 80 oracle and orator
refer to what comes out of the mouth.
Audience, audible, auscultation, the
auditing of accounts, originally after 11
"bearing” of the officials, are traceable
to the car. Spirit means the breath
and Is also found In conspire, "to
breathe together;" inspire, "to breathe
In," and even In perspire, "to breathe
through.” Impediment Is something
against the foot. Ell, the cloth meas
ure, Is the length of the forearm. The
hair In capillary attraction means the
power exerted through the cnpillary or
The heart (cordis) Is to tic observed
In a cordial, or heartening, drink; a
cordial, or hearty, manner; the core of

In some countries anybody may rise
by his own merits to he somebody,
even to Hie “head" of the nation or of
the church; he a head master of a
school, head a revolution, take up
"Brins” and prove to lie a capital—
that Is, a headmost soldier and the
chief (head) of tile uruiy.
Corporal punishment is Bodily pun
ishment; capital punishment Is pun
ishment by decapitation, or taking off
tIn* head. A corporal—(lint is, a cup-
ornl means the same as captain that
is, the head of a body of foot soldiers.
A colonel Is one who has been crown
ed. The commander In chief, or head
commandcr, compels the chieftains, or
headmen of the enemy, to capitulate—
that Is, surrender according to an
agreement that is divided Into capitii-
las, or little heads, or chapters.
A heady and headstrong ruler some
times makes people wish he was head
less. To make headway against Ids
foes he may have to rush headlong Into
dltlicullles or lake a header Into the
unknown sea of politics. Among some
I pics one with Ihc big head is likely
to lose it. Under some the headship of
the ship of state does not make head
way lignins! the head winds of events
or around the "cape,” or headland, just
ahead, lie may plunge into trouble
over bend and cars, and Ids opponents
have to put tlidr heads together to
head lilin off, so as to prevent a head-
on collision with another iiatlmi. Some
men halo to lie treated as deadheads
at political headquarters or as so many
head of cattle or as mutton heads or
cahbngo heads, cabbage itself being
from an old Spanish word meaning
Sonic men “play tlidr hand" for all
(hero Is In It. Sonic stretch out the
glad hand to every one. Some keep
hand in glove with those engaged in
underhand proceedings as well as with
those who have climbed to high places
hand over lmiul. When the right man
says “Hands off!" even his right hand
man would not lay hands on what was
forbidden. The clock hands tell 11s If
we are beforehand or behindhand.
A handsome man originally was one
who used Ids hands skillfully and so
was graceful and probably, therefore,
good looking. Although every one car
ries a palm tu Ids hand, people no
longer, with palms In their hands, wel
come their heroes. One may have Ills
finger iu too ninny pies and trend on
too ninny toes. One's chtrography,
manuscript, handwriting—they are all
one—may be rather coarse, hut Ills fine
hand ts detected In many a public docu
ment and so arouse opposition to Ills
handling the funds. Tills might prove
II severe handicap, which was original
ly so called from the jockeys putting
their hands Into a cap and drawing
lots for the places that their horses
were to have in the race. Footstool
nuil foot rule sound alike, hut In the
first foot Is the literal, In the second
the figurative, use of the word.
Though the politician put Ills best
foot forward he may find Ids foothold
getting Insecure and begin wondering
what’s afoot. His coachman, mount
ing the footboard, may ln> insolent; Ills
footman, contemptuous; his chef, or
head cook, neglectful, lie may be
ridiculed before the footlights ns n
social footpad, living a hand to mouth
existence at the expense of the tax
payers. Millie they are Insisting on
his toeing the mark and he is hanging
to Ills position by the toe nails, ns the
saying Is, he may well wish he was
hack on his native foothills.
Were he arrested lie might he hand
cuffed and fetters, or footers, pluced
u|K>n his feet. He might not even have
an opportunity of making mouths or
showing his teeth at Ills enemies. He
might in other days he turned over to
the headsman, hut there would be no
newspaper headlines proclaiming that
fact. Only a small headstone might
tell his fate to the pedestrians, or foot
passengers, going by.—New York Trib

The Change That Takes I'lace When
They Filter the Water.
The appearance of the keeper of the
penguins nt the zoo, with Ids pall of
live gudgeon, is the signal for sudden
and Intense excitement In the cages.
The penguins wave their little flippers
and waddle to the door, whence they
peer eagerly down the wooden steps
leading to the pool. The cormorant
eronks and sways from side to side,
and the darters poise their snaky heads
and spread their hatlike wings. At the
water's edge the penguins do not
launch themselves upon the surface
like other water fowl, hut instantly
Once below water nil astounding
change tukes place. The slow, ungain
ly bird Is transferred Into u swift and
brllllunt creature, bended with globules
of quicksilver, where the nlr clings to
the close feathers, and flying through
the clear and waveless depths with ar
rowy speed and powers of turniug fur
greater than In uny known form of
aerial flight. The rapid and steady
strokes of the wings are exactly sim
ilar to those of the air birds, while Its
feet float straight out level with the
body, unused for propulsion or even us
rudders and ns little needed In Its prog
ress as those of 11 wild duck when on
The twists nnd turns necessary to

the cessation of movement Iu the oilier,

birds which take their prey in midair,

Any attempt to remain on the sur
