PERRY, HOUSTON COUNTY, GA., THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1901.
A Successful Georgia Farmer.
Editor Constitution—The Consti
tution is doing good work for Geor
gia in calling attention to its agricul
tural resources. There are, of course,
hundreds of instances where Georgia
farmers are making wonderful rec
ords, and all of which cannot be
treated by your special men. One of
these, and they are scattered about
all over the state, is the dairy farm
of Hon. R W. Weatherly of Dalton.
This farm is in the Upper end of the
county, consisting of 600 acres,about
half of which is being tilled. Mr.
Weatherly breeds his own “muley”-
headed Jerseys, “culls out” the * off”
ones, thus keeping the milking strain
up to its full and most profitable
Each year finds r from a half to a
dozen additional milkers, all bred
and trained from calfhood to their
business. He is now milking thirty-
four cows. The cream is separated
from the milk and sent to Chatta
nooga by daily express, where it is
sold for 65 cents per gallon. The
“skim” milk is fed the young calves
until they are fit to pasture and ei
ther sold for beef or kept for the
dairy. The cows are all pets and
gentle as house cats. The ugly-dis
posed ones are banished to the
slaughter pen, for gentleness is a
prerequisite in this business. Hr.
Weatherly informs me that clear of
all expenses he is netting $1,500 per
annum, and the profit growing an
nually as the new ones “come in.”
There are other items of profit not
included in the above sum, such as
wheat, the straw only being charged
to the dairy account. There are two
silo towers of 1,000 and one of 1,500
tons capacity, which stand at the
side of the milking house. A cutter
with a carrier takes up the finely
chopped green com, stalks and
blades, and dumps it into the tower
or pit, and here it is pickled for fu
ture use. Of course neatness, kind
ness and promptness is the inviolable
rule. Mr. Weatherly has several
thousand Elberta and Lady Ingold
peach trees that will be old enough
to bear next year. He is a drummer
for a Nashville house, has a lovely
home here and is one of the tVro re
publican members of the Dalton city
council, and numbers his friends by
the limit of his acquaintance. May
17 th is the anniversary of his birth,
and a large number of his friends
annually gather at this farm, where
a big picnic is held, when the pick
from his large strawberry patches is
furnished in proflgate abundance and
the tables are literally decorated with
the little red globes so palatable to
the Cincinnati breakfaster, where
they are daily served. Gallons of
pure cream are furnished, and the
east Tennesseeans vie with the north
Georgians in the annual enjoyment,
and it is here that the good lady
from the “volunteer state” matches
her home-raised turkey and chicken
with the apple jelly and layer cake
of her sister across the line in the
“cracker'state,” and when the boys
and girls of four generations get
around these mammoth tables the

Stoneville, Mo., May 5th, 1900.
Gentlemen—I have been troubled

the last two years, and have tried ev

The Bride at Last Said “Obey.’
In telling about “Some People I
Have Married,” in the Ladies’ Home
Journal for June, the Rev. D. M.
Steele says: “Being an Episcopalian
I always use the formal printed ser
vice of the Prayer-Book. In this the
greatest stickler is ‘obey.’ One day
a couple came to me, bringing as
witnesses the parents of both bride
and groom. Everything proceeded
smoothly to the point ‘love, honor
and obey,’ when the bride refused
to say the last. I repeated it and
waited. Again she refused, and I
shut up my book. Then there was
a scene. They talked it over, and
the more seriously they argued and
discussed the more stubbornly she
refused. The parents became angry,
the groom excited, and the bride
hysterical. To humor her he joined
in the request to have me leave it
out. But I liked the fellow and de
cided that a little sternness from me
in the present might be a favor to
him in the future. So I told them
I had no authority to change it and
would not do so. I tried to show
the foolishness of her objection, but
it was no use. Finally, I said to
him: “Well, this household * must
have a head somewhere. I will leave
it out for her if you will say it.”
Then it was his time to refuse,
which he did. He gathered up his
hat and started for the door, when,
presto change! she sprang after him,
led him back by the hand, looked
meekly up at him and said it.”
Not Properly Coached.
Success in Farming.
T. C. Karns in Southern Farm Magazine of Bal
timore for June.
The difference between success and
failure is very little at best. One
farmer protects his stock from the
weather and sa\ es enough in feed to
make money. Another feeds in the
snow, rain and mud, and loses all
his profits. One houses his imple
ments and they last for years. An
other leaves his scattered in the
fields wnerever he finished his work,
and they are soon worthless. The
one puts all products in fine shape
before offering them on the market,
and secures a high price. The other
does not and charges his loss against
capital and corporations. Further
details are unnecessary. Anyone can
see the difference. The wonder is
that some farmers live at all. If
farming were not the easiest, safest
business in the world they would

The editor who had been asked to
address the Sunday School came for
ward, says the Chicago Tribune.
“Children,” he said, “your super
intendent has told you that I am
considered one of the wealthy men
of the country. Whether that is
true or not I want to tell you one
thing I know absolutely, and that is
that riches do not make happiness.
They only add to one’s cares. Chil
dren, what does make happiness?
“Circuses?” shouted one of the ur
chins in the infant class.
“No, my son,” said the visitor
with a frown, “circuses do not make
happiness. Being good and obedi
ent, mindful of the lessons you
team here and faithful to carry them
out in your lives, is the only thing
that will make you happy. Will
some little boy tell me what it is
that is said to make one healthy,
wealthy and wise?”
“Joinin’ a trust!” yelled the six-
year-old on the front seat.
And the visitor gave it up and
took his seat. The children of that

Very Young Soldiers.
One of the most remarkable but
least-noticed facts in connection
with the war in the Transvaal is the
extreme youth of a large part of
General DeWet’s army. When hos
tilities broke out almost every grown
man enlisted, even the enfeebled,
but the pace has been too rapid for
the venerable burghers. As they
were kilted or incapacitated their
places have been taken by mere
school children, many only thirteen
or fourteen years of age. Under the
title of “The Youngest Soldiers in
the World,” in the June Cosmopoli
tan Allen Sangree throws more light
on the make-up and life of General
De Wet’s commanders than any
thing hitherto published. The naive,
