My homeless friend with the
ruby nose, while you are stirring
up the sugar in that ten-cent glass
of gin, let me give you a fact with
which to wash it down. You say
you have longed for years for the
free, independent life of the farm
er, but have never been able to get
enough money together to buy a
farm. Hut this is just where you
are mistaken. For several years
you have been drinking a good im
proved farm at the rate of one
hundred square feet a gulp. If
you doubt this statement, figure it
out for yourself. An acre of land
contains forty-three thiusar.d,
five hundred and sixty square feet.
Fstimating, for convenience, the
land at forty three dollars and fifty-
six cents per acre, you will see
that this brings the land to just
one mill per square foot, one cent
for ten square feet. Now pour
down that fiery dose and just im
agine you are swallowing a straw
berry patch. Call in five of your
friends and have them help you
gulp down that five hundred foot
garden, (jet on a prolonged spree
some day, and see how long a time
it requires to swallow a pasture
large enough to teed a cow, Put
down that glass ol gin! There is
dirt in it— one hundred square feet
of good, rich dirt, worth forty-three
dollars and fifty-six cents per acre.
Hut there are plenty of farms
which do not cost forty-three dol
lars and fifty-six cents per acre.
What an enormous acreage has
gone down many a homeless drink-
ei’s throat! No wonder such men
are buried in the “potter’s field;”
they have swallowed farms and
gardens ami homes,-—Selected.

Judge Russell’s Fatal Error.
■Judge Russell has one plank in
h s platform which is a fatal error
ta his candidacy, which is his prop
osition to exempt $300 of property
from taxation. That simply means
to relieve the negro population of
Georgia from helping to support
the government of the State.
There are few negroes who have
more property than $300. Why
•fudge Russell wishes to relieve
the negro from taxation we can not
imagine—Middle Georgia Farmer.

Russell’s Home County Will
Vote For Smith.
No one who was among the peo
ple here last Saturday afternoon
and talked with them can doubt
the strong sentiment for Hoke
Smith in all the sections around
Winder. We candidly believe
that out of over i2op men here
from Jackson, Walton and Gwin
nett last Saturday, outside of the
voters of Winder, 1,000 of them
are and will remain Hoke Smith
supporters. Few men who have
talked with the people of Jackson,
Walton and Gwinnett have any
doubt about these three counties.
They will all go for Hoke Smith.
