fight this proposition to a finish if
it takes years to do it.

Farmers Selling Too Fast.
One of the most beautiful places
in Georgia is that of the Lee fami
ly in Catoosa county, near the
Tennessee line, now occupied by
Congressman Gordon Lee, of the
seventh district. It is old-fashion
ed; the very type of that colonial
architecture now so much prized
and imitated. It breathes the
spirit of the times before the war
and the generous hospitality dis
pensed by its dignified owner and
charming chatelaine recalls the
brilliant social life in the South
before the bugle calls of Sherman’s
hosts made a wreck of much that
was fair and lovely in the country.
The cordial hospitality of the
home has been noted for many
years and under the reign of the
present mistress, this reputation
bids fair to be increased. Mrs.
Gordon Lee was before her mar
riage Miss Olive Berry, of New
nan, one of the wealthiest heir
esses ol the state. She entertains
with tact and charm and each
week of the summer season the
Lee home is filled with gay house
parties. In the winter it is in
charge of a care-taker, as Con
gressman and .Mrs. Lee are neces
sarily : n Washington. Upon the
occasion of Mr. Lee’s recent re
spring, the largest as well as the
most beautiful spring in North
Georgia, with a reputed How of
1,000,000 gallons an hour. This
magnificent spring is in a natural
basin and from it flows a stream,
which dammed up new, forms the
fishing lake of the Chickamauga
Club. This is splendidly stocked
and with its lodge and hunting
preserves is a favorite resort for
the fishermen of Chattanooga and
The Lee mansion faces the
spring. The wide government
boulevard runs through this wood
ed bit and the old house forms one
of the prettiest pictures on the
Historically the estate is famed.
The house itself was the head
quarters of Major General Kose-
crans before the battle of Chicka
mauga and around it now are
numerous government tablets and
state markers showing the position
of the troops during and before
the battle. Not far away is the
Lee and Gordon mill, a contested
point of the fight, and a well
known flour mill long before the
war. It is one of the largest in
dustries of the State and is still
owned by the Lee and Gordon
estate; in fact little of the original
property has been sold.
The name of the postoffice has
been changed from Crawfish
Springs to Chickamauga and the
boulevard runs directly to the na
tional park, with its thousands of 1
memorials and miles of superb j
roads. Fort Oglethorpe lies on i

If you waut to know if advertis

the existence of a "Bearish” spec
ulative market, strengthened by
the too rapid selling of spot cotton
which is forcing down prices be
low a fair, profitable basis. This
unwarranted and illegitimate vio
lation of the true laws of supply
and demand will continue until
spot holders stiengthen their posi-
( ition by a slower movement ol the
\ staple to market.
There is but one course to pur-
n’sue at this time to bring about
normal conditions. Store every
bale of cotton under good and sate
protection, which can be possibly
held, either on the farm or in local
warehouses. Higher prices are
sure to be realized it the crop is
marketed intelligently. The pres
ent price of cotton is too low.

large gathering, the banquet is

The house, with its white col

vines, is set far back from the

fence surrounds the grounds and
