What the Agricultural Department is
Doing to Help the Farmer.
Atlanta, Ga., Feb. 10.— Hundreds of
Georgia farmers who have followed the
advice given last year by Commissioner
of Agriculture J. D. Price, and planted
wheat, are now rejoicing in their good
fortune, for the price of wheat has gone
soaring, and the demand for it is going
to continue. Those who planted wheat
will make a hi ndsome profit.
‘‘Now 1 want to warn the farmers of
Georgia against being misled by the re
cent rise in cotton,” said Commissioner
Price to-day. ‘‘Don’t plant c-tton to
the exclusion of home supplies and
food products. If you do, you will
bring about tho same depressing situa
tion next fall and winter with which
you have just had to contend. Don’t
let this rise in the price of cotton influ
ence you one whit. Food prices are up,
and they are going to continue to be
high. Besides, with a reduced acreage
in cotion, the farmers of Georgia will
get just us much money for it as they
would if they made the mistake of
planting again like they did last year;
and they will have the food crops in ad
dition. The Department is going to cm-
Dloy an expert market man this spring
and summer to travel continually over
the State, from county to county, for
the purpose of bringing the dealer and
farmer in closer touch, so as to find a
ready market for all tho produce the
farmer raises. He will help in every
way possible except to make actual
trades, and any county desiring it may
have his services upon request.”
Commissioner Price has just received
a letter from B. H. Groover, cashier of
the Tattnall Barilc, of Reidsville, in
which Mr. Groover urges closer co-op
eration between the banker and the
merchant on the one hand, and the far
mer on the other, in finding ready mar
kets fo* all food products of the farm.
Mr. Groover says the country bunks
should extend reasonable credit facili
ties to the country merchant to enuble
the latter to promptly handle the far
mer's produce and get it to the consu
mer. It is also suggested that the city
bank and the city merchant can be of
material assistance in this work. Com
missioner Price indorses the plan as a
good one, and expresses the belief that
this co-operation will be forthcoming
•'Cold storage” eggs will no longer
compete in Georgia .with the fresh
product of the hen’s industry direct
from the farm. Thousands of dozens
of cold storage eggs have lately
been sold in the Slate as “fresh
selected eggs,” when the “fresh
selection” was only from co’d storage
plants. Commissioner Price has just is
sued a ruling, under the Pure Food
Law, that hereafter all cold storage
eggs must be plainly branded “cold
storage” on the package or container
in which they are offered. The consu
mer has only to look at the pack ige to
see what he is getting. It is new a mis
demeanor, punishable by fine or impris
onment, or both, to sell cold storage
eggs without branding them as re
“Put your spare acres in peas or oth
er leguminous crops,” urges Commis
sioner Price to the Georgia farmer. "It
will beat cotton all to pieces this year,”
hesaya. The Slate Department of Agri
culture is now prepared to furnish
Georgia farmers with the nitrogen bac
teria inoculant for leguminous crops at
25 cents per acre, or actual cost, where
they have heretofore been paying pri
vate; parties from $1.75 to $2 per acre.
This inoculin makes these crops grow
A Touching Incident.
One beautiful evening in the summer
of 1SS1 a party of Northern tourists
formed part of a large company gath
ered on the deck of an excursion steam
er sailing down the Potomac. A gen
tleman who has since gained national
reputation as a singer-evangelist had
been delighting the party with his hap
py rendering of familiar hymns, the
last being that petition so dear to ev
ery Christian heart, “Jesus, Lover of
My Soul.” The singer gave the first
two verses with such feeling and em
phasis as thrilled every heart. A hush
had fallen on the listeners, which was
not broken until a gentleman made his
way to the side of the singer and said;
“Beg your pardon, stranger, but were
you engaged in the late war?”
“Yes, Bir,” the man of song an
swered. “1 fought under Gen. Grant.”
”1 did my fighting on the other aide,”
continued the first speaker, ‘‘and am
quite sure I was very near you one
bright night, eighteen years ago this
month. It was much such a night os
this. If I am not mistaken you were on
guard duty. We of the South had duty

“Your prayer wus answered. I could
not fire after that, and there was no
attack made on your camp that night.
1 felt sure when 1 heard you sing this
evening that; you were the man whose
life I was spared from tilting.”
The singer grasped the hand of the
Southerner and said with much emo
“I remember the night very well, and
remember distinctly the feeling of de
pression and loneliness with which 1
went forth to my duty. I knew my
post was one of great danger. 1 was
more dejected than I remember to have
been at any time during the service. I
paced my lonely heat, thinking of home
and friends, and all that life holds dear.
Then tho thought of God’s care for all
He hud created came to me with pecu
liar force. If He so cares for the spar
row, how much more for man, created in
His own image; and I sung the prayer of
my heart and ceased to be alone. How
the prayer was answered 1 never knew
until this evening. My Heavenly Fath
er thought best to keep the knowledge
of it from me for eighteen years. How
much of His goodness to us shall we be
ignorant of until revealed by the light of
eternity. ‘Jesus, Lover of My Soul,’
hasalwaysbeen my favorite hymn—now
it will be inexpressibly dear.”
This incident is a true one, and was

of the party on the steamer.

Saturday Evening Post.
A certain Savannah lawyer was
reared on a Georgia plantation. Ah he
tells it, a group of the younger darkies
on the place went coon hunting one
night and took with them Uncle Isom,
who was nearly 80 years old, and crip
pled with rheumatism besides.
The dogs treed some animal in a big
tree on the edge of a swamp 5 miles
from home; hut when the tree tell
there rolled out of the top of it, not a
coon but a full-grown black bear, full
of fight and long, sharp claws.
The dogs gave one howl of fear and
streaked away, yelping as they went;
and the two-legged hunters followed,
fleeing as fast as their legs would car
When they came to a moonlit place
in the woods they discovered that Un
cle Isom was missing; but they did not
go back to look for him—they did not
even check up.
‘‘here ole Unc’ Iaorn!” bemoaned one
of the fugitives, between pants. "His
ole laigs must V give out on him befo’
he went ten jumps. I reckin dat bear's
chawin’ on his bones right dis minute.”
“D.it's so! Dat’s so!” grunted the
others. “Pore Unc' Isom!''
When they reached the safety of the
plantation in an exhausted stale they
limped to Uncle Isom's cottage to
break the news to the widow. There
was a light in the window; and when
they rapped at the door, and it opened,
the sight of the person who faced them
across the threshold made the young
ru groes gar.p.
“Ilefo' de Lawd!” exclaimed one of
them. “How <hd you git beah?”
“M ?” said Uncle bom. calmly. “I
come ’long wid de dawgs.”

Will Frank Be Tried Again ?
Atlanta, Gu., Feb. 1L — In the event
L. M. Frank is given his freedom by
the United States Supreme Court, will
he be prosecuted in the Fulton Supe
rior Courts on another charge?
The question is taking on wide signifi
cance now because of the rumor cur
rent in court circles that, in the event
Frank is liberated on the habeas corpus
appeal, Solicitor Dorsey and his asso
ciates will make a strong effort to have
him indicted before the grand jury on
one of two charges—rape or perver
The report has reached such a point
that there is widespread speculation
upon it wherever attorneys gather, it
is generally acknowledged that the pris
oner can he legally arruigned a second
time if either of the rumored charges
art 1 brought against him.
The probability is made even more ap
parent by the attitude of Solicitor Dor
sey. Although non-committal, he de
clared thnt the State was determined
to fight the Frank case to the end. He
likewise made this additional state
"I do not care, however, to anticipate
what may be done by the State should
Frank bo liberated eventually in the
proceedings now before the United
States Supreme Court.
“As to what can he done, so far ns I
know, there is no law which would pre
vent action being taken against him on
either the charge of rape or perver
sion. 1 ’
He would neither deny nor affirm the
report, however, that the prosecution
had already determined to take such
steps against the convicted man if the
United States courts interposed.
The reticence of Bat Campbell and
John Starnes, the police headquarters
detectives who were named in tho bill
of indictment as prosecutors of Frank
for Mary Phagan’a murder, lends many
to attach credence to the report. When
asked if they had contemplated further
prosecution of Frank if he obtained his
freedom, they declined to express them
selves one way or tho other.
That Frank can he brought before
the courts on either of tho two above
named charges wns admitted by Attor
ney Reuben Arnold, associate counsel
for Frank's defense and one of the
principals in the famous trial. Like Mr.
DorHey, he declared that there was no
way of preventing action on these
The plea of former jeopardy, he said,
would bo of no avuil. A new charge,
in such circumstances, would have to
be similar to the one on which he was
convicted before a plea of former jeop
ardy could be instituted.
Ships Are Lacking to Carry Exports.
Washington, Feb. 7. —Secretary Mc-
Adoo to-night made public telegrams
from the New York, Baltimore and
Norfolk customs collectors telling of
great congestion of freight because of
lack of ocean-going transportation.
Dudley Field Malone, the New York
collector, told of unusual congestion,
particularly with respect to grain. “Ex
planation of this congestion,” ho re
ported, “is that export movement can
not be effected because of shortage of
tonnage.” 'Ihe congestion applied to
warehouse elevators as well as cars and
lighters, he added, but no marked con
gestion of coastwise trade was discern
Collector Ryan, at Baltimore, re
ported that the Pennsylvania railroad
had placed an embargo on grain con
signed for export there. The elevators,
he said, were loaded to capacity and
there were 4,200,000 bushels of grain
on the railroad tracks awaiting removal.
Otherwise, conditions at Baltimore
were normal, Mr. Ryan said.
Collector Hamilton, at Norfolk, re
ported much congestion of merchandise
consigned to both coastwise and foreign
“There are in warehouses and under
sheds at Norfolk at the present time,”
he reported, ”85,556 hales of cotton,
valued in Germany at $5,476,160. There
is great congestion in warehouses, un

To the Young Man.
Kurily Mountain Educator.
Young man, I notice that you are not
in school any more. What’s the mat
ter? Think you have received enough
education to cariy you through the
world? Or do you stay nut just be
cause you do not like to go? Didn't like
the teacher, eh? Well, let me tell you,
you will find the meanest teacher on
earth a dream of love beside some of
the bosses you will work under in the
cold, unfeeling years you will plow into
when you have to hustle for yourself.
Education is the moHt valuable thing in
the world to a man, but to a boy it
comes the cheapest. It costs nothing
now to get that which many a man
would give all he has to possess. You
have ihe winning number in the lottery
of education, if you play it now. Loaf
around a few years and you will draw
a blank. It is true, any man can make
a living, but you will notice that the
fellows who aid with their brains have
an easier time of it than those who are
compelled to uro only their muscles. At
the present stage of the game the
choice jobs are not held by physical
strength. Education will not crawl
i nto your head while you sleep.
The thing for you to do is to hike off
to school to-morrow morning and stay
there. Your holidays will come later
when you need them.

And She Took the Hint.
At the “home stations” of the Brit
ish army the private soldiers’ washing
is usually done by the married soldiers’
wives, who are expected to sew on
missing buttons amtmake other repairs,
for whicn a small sum is deducted from
the private’s pay.
Bat McGinnis hud had a good deal of
trouble with his laundress. Sunday
after Sunduy half bis shirts came buck
with the neck button lacking or only
hanging by a thread. He had spoken
about the matter and the woman had
promised to see to it, but still the but
ton was not properly fixed.
He got out of patience one day when
the missing button had made him late
for parade. “Bother the woman!” he
said. “I’ll see if 1 can’t give her a
a hint this time, anyhow.”
Taking the lid of a tin blacking box,
about three inches in diameter, he
punched two holes in it and sewed it on
to the neck of the shirt that was next
to be washed. When his washing came
buck he found she hud taken the hint—
or part of it. She had made a button
hole to fit the lid.
