Thinks War a Great Blessing.
Dr. Charles A. Eaton, preaching in
the Madison Avenue Baptist church of
New York City Sunday on the subject,
“Are We Drifting Into War'.'" tnkes
tho view that the world was "losing
its soul" and is being “purged by pain.”
He says —
“The real problem for the United
States raised by the war is the place
which we are to hold among the nations
when peace returns. Three facts will
largely determine the issue: First We
are now, and must remain, a world pow
er. Second—As a people we do not
want war, either for ourselves or for
our neighbors. Third—When peace
conies there will be enthroned a world
public opinion, and this public opinion,
which will be part judgment and part
conscience, will determine the influence
of each nution over the others.
“This war is the greatest blessing
that has fallen upon mankind since the
German Reformation. The world was
losing its soul. Germany, under the
blight of militarism, had lost her moral
sense, and her culture had become an
efficient engine of destruction—a men
ace to herself and all the world. Russia
lay stupid, sodden and hopeless under
iron despotism. France had forgotten
God and was smotherinr in the froth
of a frivolous and immoral a-stheti
cism. Britain, chief among democra
cies, had distilled within her veins the
poison of class hatred and individual
selfishness and was fast sinking into
kind of social coma. America, soaked
in materialism, prosperous, shallow,
restless, dissatisfied, was drifting to
ward spiritual anarchy. Everywhere
the soul had died out of the bosom of
“We needed a cross, and God has laid
this cross upon the world. We are be
ing purged by pain. Suffering, the
beautiful mother of greatness, is breed
ing the race back to nobility, to unsel
fishness, to idealism—to real manhood
‘‘We alone of the great nations
stand outside the struggle. And this
constitutes at once our danger and our
opportunity. While we are not fighting
with arms, we are nevertheless in the
war, and have been there Bince the first
day. If as a people we live up to our
history we shall win for ourselves
place of leadership among the nations.
If, on tho other hand, we temporize and
shrink from accepting the burdens of
our own greatness, we shall ue d spised
by the nations and shall lose our moral
leidership, perhaps forever.
‘‘This is where America stands to
day, at the parting of the ways. Our
makers of opinion see the issue with
remarkable clearness. Never has the
newspaper press of America risen to
such worthy and noble leadership as to
day. If the press has already found its
soul, shall we not hope that politics,
business and religion will catch the
larger meaning of the age, and unite to
make our beloved nation the real ser
vant and friend of mankind?
“In view of these great considera
tions, what ought America to do?
‘‘First—We must accept our own
propositions without reserve. We are
for men: for government of, for and by
the people; for justice, liberty and hu
manity. We must protest clearly, offi
cially and firmly against every viola
tion of these ideals. And if our protest
leads to loss, or even war, we must be
ready and prepared to pay the price
We cannot profess high principles with
out accepting full responsibility for our
principles, and we cannot assume re
sponsibility without paying the price.
‘‘Second—We must let all the world
know that American citizenship is a sa
cred thing, and its rights cannot be vio
lated by anyone anywhere without a
reckoning to the last penny.
“We hate war, but we would rather
perish fighting for right than rot in
shameful and cowardly ease. God is
calling to us to lead mankind out of its
failure and ruin into peace and pro
gress. But if mankind loses its confi
dence in us and its respect for us, we
can neither lead nor serve.”

The South is Optimistic.
For the first time since the outbreak
of the European win- the South is opti
mistic. It is genuine optimism, horn of
really improved conditions, and not a
manufactured optimism which is mov
ing the South.
The reason for this is not hard to
find. This time last year, when the
South had looked forward to u big fall
season with a good price for ewtton,
cotton was down lo tij cents. Exchanges
were closed. Everybody was in debt,
and with no prospects of getting mon
ey to pay out. The cotton, which in
many instances was mortgaged for
these debts, had been expensively
ruised, which both increased the debt
and reduced the margin of profit in tho
To-day cot ton is selling around 1:1 cents
and on an ascending market.
This is one cause for optimism, hut a
far greater cause is the fact that this
year’s cotton crop was the most eco
nomically raised of any crop the South
has produced in a decade.
Cotton selling at 10 cents this year
meuns more net profit to the cotton-
grower than last year’s crop would
have meant selling at 15 cents. That is
just how economically this year’s crop
has been raised. This was due both to
the farmer’s plan to practice economy,
and the fact thnt he did not have the
money to act otherwise. This condition
of tho farmer in relation to his cotton
crop, together with tho prospect of
plenty of money to hold or move it, has
placed tpe South’s staple upon a firm
For the purpose of financing the crop
not only are the reserve banks co-oper
ating, but private banking institutions
throughout the South have made ar
rangements to lend millions on cotton,
independently of the reserve hanks.
These two financing factors, together
with the offer of tho Secretary of the
Treasury to place $30,000,000 in the
South for cotton, furnish all the finan
cial machinery the South could wish.
In addition t» this, the cotton crop
this year is -1,000,000 bales short, which
insures that prices will hold up or go
higher. These conditions warrant the
South in looking forward to the pros
perous cotton year it would have en
joyed Igst year if there had been no
The South is in tremendously hotter
shape this year in the matter of food
stuffs than it has ever been. Diversi
fication of crops has been conducted to
such an extent this year in Dixie that
practically all of the food needed for
the year will be found right at home.
This wilt keep millions of dollars in the
South which in years past have gono
elsewhere for these things.
In addition to these conditions, gen
eral business is already making splen
did gains. Bank clearings in many
Southern cities are picking up rapidly.
Merchants in all parts of the South re
port that collections are improving.
Taking the outlook by and large, the
South finds no reason to complain.
Never take pepsin and preparations
containing pepsin or other digestive
ferments for indigestion, as the more
you take the more you will have to
take. What is needed is a tonic like
Chamberlain’s Tablets, that will enable

naturally. Obtainable everywhere.
They were having a wonderful time.
Every light in the house was lit. (also

swayed to and fro, some treading with
light, fantastic toe —others treading
with a heavy weight on toes. (Ah,
The happy, care free throng was
laughing, whispering noiseless nothings
into each other’s ears, tickling them.
Chattering groups were scattered here
and there. Little recked they of the
dreadful fate awaiting them; of the
harrowing moments which they had to
endure in fortified silence.
Suddenly, above the reckless clatter,
rose the frenzied shriek of a woman.
The noise ceased and the crowd rushed
to the doors in a mad effort to escape
from the room. Gowns were rent to
shreds—hair disheveled—jewels loBt—
everything was wild confusion.
All—because a fair young maid had
volunteered to recite ; ‘Curfew Shall
Not Ring To-night.”

“Home, Sweet Horae,” Written in
Murray County Moa'ionger.
The author of one of the dearest
songs we have,—“Home, Sweet
Home,” was born in the city of New
York. His parents were Bohemians.
At the age of IS he made Ins ap
pearance at the Park Theatre in New
York. During his stage life he played
in England and Ireland.
Although l’ayne wrote many plays,
none of them was as famous us the
song, "Home, Sweet Home.”
In 1M2 l’ayne was appointed U. S.
consul to Tunis. After this we know
very little about his life. He returned
to America after the expiration of his
term in Tunis, and while traveling in
Georgia he met Miss Mary Harden, of
Athens, with whom he fell deeply in
love. But the world will never know
the reason why the romance failed to
end happily. It. is _ more than likely
that, as he did not have a home of his
own, he would never make a home for
During his stay in Georgia ho visited
Spring Place, in Murray county, and
while there he got on a drunken spree
and was arrested. While he was in
jail awaiting trial ho composed the
heart-rending song, “Home, Sweet
When tho officer came for Payne he
made him march around the square and
up before tho trial officer. As he was
marching he sung his song, and so
effectively that he was released from
prison and further trial.
Payne afterwards told the people
that as he lay awake during the night
before the trial and thought of his past
life he said, “Home, Sweet Home,”
and it kept running through his mind
until he composed the song. He got
up and asked for a candle, and wrote
it off on paper borrowed from the jailer.
After he was released he sent the
original copy, interlined with endearing
expressions, to his “lady love.”
It seems that after this he again re
turned to Europe to wander through
life—ever thinking of his loved one,
but unable to be with tier. He re
One day un American was on the
streets of London and met l’ayne.
During the conversation ho said: “I
have walked the streets of European
cities where tho stately palaces rear
their cold fronts against the heurts of
the poor, and 1 have heard within their
walls the song ‘Home, Sweet Home,’
when I didn't have a cent of money in
the world, nor a shelter for the night.”
After this we know nothing further
of his life until wo learn of his death
In 18811 Payne’s remains were ex
humed at Tunis and brought to thiB
country for interment.
Is it not possible that there is anoth
er R. E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson or a
N. B. Forrest somewhere in the South
that we could persuade to go over to
Eurqpe and direct those scared allied
armies and draw them out of those
lousy, dirty trenches on the western
lines? Something has to be done. This
war is not progressing to suit our no
tions of propriety. Tho Germans say
they "can,” and they do it. The En
glish and French say they "can’t,” and
they don’t try. Vaudeville and polo in
terest them more than kicking those
energetic, self-confident Gormans out
of France. Help the English and
French to find a general. Maybe Aus
tralia, New Zealand or Canada can find
one. Help us to find him. This thing
is unbearable. — Macon Telegraph.

How Two Coweta Negro Women
Have Answered the Question.
In the last number of the New York
Independent tho wife of Hooker Wash
ington ruiseR and seeks to answer the
question, “Are colored women making
good?” She writes intelligently and
interestingly uhout the natter, and
modestly ns well, with no disposition to
dogmatize or abuse anybody for what
ever failures there may he in the home
life and the social and moral life of the
negro women of the South. Instead of
finding fault with the Southern people
for their treatment of tho negro—a
favorite way of handling the question
on the part, of many who are not really
trying to help the negro—she tells
what the negro women themselves are
trying to do to better themselves and
their homes. She tells how the negro
women of Alabama, out of their eager
mennH, raised $2,000 a year to maintain
a reformatory for negro hoys, and how
they kept this up until the State took
the institution over. She sees clearly,
what every other friend of the negro
sees, that the beginning of better
things for the race must bo in the
home life of the negro.
If to he the mother of large families
is making good—and that used to be
supposed to bo true by such scriptural
women ns Sarah and her desc ndanf.s—
then two negro women of Coweta have
given a most satisfactory nnswer to the
question rnised by the wife of Booker
Washington. The wife of Geo. Ferro-
by, colored, is the mother of twenty
children, and the wife of Geo, Bras-
weU is the mother of twenty-three.
These women live within half a mile of
each other, near Bethlehem church.
