THE PIANO CONTEST.
The News confidently expected
to have on exhibition by Dec. 1st
in one of Newnan’s stores the
Clinton piano which is to be given
away in this paper's voting contest;
but a letter received several days
ago from the manufacturers, The

News as a county newspaner.
Lots of people eat too much on

thankful they are, and some of the

the Christmas holidays—but no

Senator Beveridge is authority
for the statement that nobody

Possibly the Senator is right; but
the things that worry mortals most
are not the things they need but
the things they want.

arc at a loss to understand why the
people arc tired of being robbed.

matter and feel the high tariff

the nation with the passing of

this time, made it impossible to
ship the News’ piano the first of
this month. This turn of the mat
ter is greatly regretted by the
News, as we expected to exhibit
the instrument for three or four
weeks, in order to show the public
just what a valuable and desirable
piano we are going to give away.
However, since our first plans
have failed, we hope now to re
ceive the piano in time to award it
to the successful contestant on
Dec. 24th. We have the pledge of
the manufacturers that they will
have it placed in our possession
by that time,
The News confidently believes
that if the general public had been
fully aware of the worth of this
elegant piano, much greater inter
est would have been manifested in
the contest than has been evidenc
ed. Many people naturally sup
pose that the instrument is a cheap
piano because the News will give
it away; but that is the main rea
son why a first class instrument
was selected. The News could
not afford to give a cheap and un
reliable piano. It would injure
this paper’s business in the future
more than it would be benefitted
at present. The News is a truth
ful and reliable newspaper and is
Some times we are inclined to
talk about the other fellow being
cranky, or even insinuate that he
is a fool, when we have no idea of
his intents and purposes.
Once when I was a boy, I, with
another boy, was standing on the
bank of a shallow stream; sudden
ly my companion seized and threw
me in the stream flat of my back.
To say I was mad, hardly express
es it; I got up raging, and bent on
punishing my supposed assailant,
and as I arose I saw him with a big
stick preparing to strike, My im
pression was that he was both a
fool and a crank; that he had be
come angered by something I had
said or done. I sputtered an im
precation and began to look for a
weapon, but just as I got hold of a
piece of board, he brought his stick
down hard apparently on the naked
earth, This looked like a dare to
me, and I made a rush for him,hut
I stopped short, tor under his stick
was a big snake. Then 1 learned
the cause of his actions—the snake
was coiling around my feet when
he pulled me away. He did not
have time to speak, or even be
gentle in pulling me out of danger.
For the time being he was a crank,
for he did not look for an easy
place to drop me on,or think about
spoiling my clothes. The little
iuconvenience was not to be con
sidered in the emergency.
There are a few prohibition
cranks scattered about over the
land, but they do not act as my
boy friend did—they stop to point
out the effect and describe the
venom of the snake while he gets
in his deadly work on his victim.
While the snake coils around the
young men of the nation, these
pass resolutions, trying to kill the
snake with paper wads.
Moral: Quit whining and reso-
luting, and act. Get a big stick,
and if the victim won’t get out of
the way, knock him out, and hit
the snake, all with the same blow.
The days of appeal to man's bet
ter nature are past; he will laugh
at you, whether the appeal be in
the interest of politics or morals.
In these days of strenuousness,
there are men so wise that you
have to knock them down to make
them see the earth they are stand
ing on. Some are so confident of
