The Fourth district agricultural rally held here yesterday under the auspices of the State Department of Agriculture and Georgia Federation of Women's Clubs was a great success, and the large gathering of farmers, business men and ladies attending the exercises were well entertained as well as pro fited by the interesting and instructive talks on the different subjects discussed. The meeting was held in the court house, and was opened with prayer by Rev. J. E. Hannah. Addresses of welcome were delivered by Mr. R. D. Cole, president of the County Chamber of Commerce, and by Mrs. Mike Pow ell, district president of the Federation of Women's Clubs. The speakers at the morning session were Hon. J. D. Price, Commissioner of Agriculture; Dr. Peter F. Bahnsen, State Veterinarian; and Hon. Phil Campbell, State agent of Boys' Corn Clubs. There was a recess of one hour for dinner, the afternoon session opening at 1:30 o’clock, with even a larger at tendance than at the morning session. At these exercises the speakers were Mrs. Nellie Peters Black and Mrs. Ly man J. Amsden, of Atlanta; Prof. Ira Williams, of the State Department of Entomology; and Prof. J. H. Melson, principal of the Fourth District A. & M. School. Hon. J. D. Price also responded to a call, and made even a better and more interesting talk than he did at the morning session. Mr. R. D. Cole presided at both ses sions, and introduced the speakers. Taken altogether it was a great day, and those who failed to hear the splen did addresses and catch some of the enthusiasm aroused were distinctly losers hv their absence. State. It is certainly gratifying to their neighbors on this side the Savan nah. One is inclined very reluctantly to believe that the race of sane and broad-minded statesmen died out in that commonwealth when Calhoun and his contemporaries passed away. Scarcely had the State gotten out of the meshes of reconstruction before it fell into the hands of a bunch of freaks who have made South Carolina the laughing stock of the country. But a better day has come to the proud old commonwealth — wherefore let us be glad. The third and last session of the Six ty-third Congress will expire next Thursday. At the same time will ex pire all hopes of the passage of a ship purchase bill, or any other legislation for the relief of the Southern farmer. Never mind!—a day of reckoning will come bye and bye, and some who have been vaunting themselves in vainglory on the floors of Congress while these measures pended will be called to ac count for their shortcomings. \ea, verily! We believe we have heard that Theo dore Roosevelt has said that he is ashamed of the course the United States has followed in its efforts to avoid war. What about the Nobel prize Mr. Roosevelt received some years ago as the champion peacemaker of the world? SUCH IS WAR. All this ado about a war zone around the British Islands, and mines in the North Sea, means that Germany and England propose to starve each other out. This is the Inst desperate resort of warring nutions. It is the sum of nil cruelties and brutalities. It is deliber- erate savagery. It is cold-blooded bar barism. It falls heaviest on tho inno cent and the helpless. It in the slaugh ter of infants, the murder of women, and the heartless homicide of the aged. But it is war. Tho people of Georgia know some thing of what it meant fifty years ago; at least, their fathers and mothers knew. It was this diabolic policy that inspired Sherman in his famous and in famous "march to the sea." The only justification that has ever been offered, or ever can be offered, in defense of this course is that it is one of the necessi ties of war. If war justifies such unspeakable cruelty, then in the name of all that is good let us have no war. LaGrange Reporter: "The Newnan Herald probably has the record, when it comes to consolidating with papers. Several years ago this paper consolida ted with the Coweta Advertiser and changed its name from The Newnan Herald to The Newnan Herald and Ad vertiser. Two weeks ago the paper took control of The Newnan News and again changed the heading, this time taking up the former name of The Newnan Herald. Last week a notice was carried to the effect that The Grantville Obser ver hod been taken over, and that Mr. L. I’. Winter, editor of the Grantville paper, will become a contributing edi tor to The Herald. The Newnan paper is now 'four in one,’ and no doubt Col. Brown and Mr. Carpenter, the editor and business manager, will give to the people of Coweta a better paper than ever before." It is said that if this country were to attempt to pat itself on a war footing such as has been maintained by Ger many and other European nations, the cost would be four and a half billion dollars a year. If the jingoes, headed by Theodore Roosevelt, want this to come about, let them foot the bill. According to figures given out by the Comptroller-General, the total value of all taxable property in the State last year showed an increase of $85,557,517 over the returns for 1913. M’COLLUM.

All landowners are required by law to give in the land lot numbers of each lot or parcel of land they own. in the original land district. The new law is very strict on this point, and instructs the Receiver not to accept the returns on any land without LOT NUMBERS and the original land dis trict. It is impossible for the Assessors to do their work intelligently and do justice to the landowner without the correct information in giving the lend lot number and land district of each land lot and parcel of land in the county. Employers are required to give a list of all em ployees on their land subject to taxes. The time for giving in taxes is from Feb. 1 to May 1. This is very important, as the books will be turned over to the Tax Assessors on May 1. Anyone who fails to give in his or her taxes with in the above-named time will be entered on the defaulters’ lint and double taxed. The Tax Receiver’s books will be open at the court-house in Newnan all the time, except when at places and dates named above. Date kor Reckoning Taxes Will Bf. From Jan. L B. PAUL SMITH. Tax Receiver. We daresay Col. Thos. S. Felder, of Macon, (lale candidate for U. S. Sena tor,) is doing some figuring just now to try to find out just "where he is at," to use a Watsoman figure. Groomed first for a U. S. Judgeship, he found upon investigation that Wallace Lamb- din, of Waycross, had the edge on that job. Next he was slated for a place on the Federal Trade Commission, but even that failed to work out according to specifications. The position has been given by President Wilson to Hon W. J. Harris, Director of the Census, and a Georgian. Felder’s friends are said to be now working to induce the Presi dent to appoint him to the office made vacant by Harris' promotion. How this plan will pan out remains to be seen; but it must be confessed that the pros pects do not appear particularly bright at the present writing. It seems that at last South Carolina has a sensible Governor and a sensible Legislature. This must be gratifying to the citizens of the Old Palmetto LONE OAK. The wenther, with its varying effects on business of every kind, constantly reminds one sf the old proverb, "Man proposes, but God disposes." Many things in nature have yielded to man's inventive and preventive devices, but the weather frustrates his plans and subdues his pride by forcing him to realize that he is not supreme. His farming operations, especially, must yield to its arbitrary fluctuations, as the present season, in its constantly recur ring disappointments, is proving: but we must still hope that "it is all for the best." In our community almost an epidemic of severe colds — in some instances genuine la grippe—ha < prevailed for several weeks. One of the most se rious esses that has come to our know ledge is that of Mr. B. E. Wise, who is just now convalescing from a "spell" that has confined him at home for some time. The cause of justice has made de mands on I.one Oak citizens the present term of the Superior Court in Green ville, Messrs. W. R. Sewell and W. P. Leo having been called to serve on the | grand jury, and Messrs. J. T. Turner, I It. B. Clyatt and A. O. Lee on the petit jury. Mr. am) Mrs. W. C. Culpepper, of Greenville, spent Sunday in the home of their invalid brother. Mr. E. C. Cul pepper. Miss Marie Sewell, of Hogansville, spent the week-end in her Lone Oak home. Mr. Roswell 0 Lee, of Atlanta, re turned to Atlanta Sunday, after a brief visit to hi? father, Mr. W. P. Lee. Mrs. Richard Maxwell, of Talbotton, has returned home, after a visit of several days last week to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Sewed. Feb. 24th.
