State Treasurer Park declares that
m0 re than half the deposits in the
state banks of Georgia are owned by
farmers, and that in the southern
part of the state the proportion of
deposits owned by the agricultural
class averages 75 per cent. There
are 180 state banks in Georgia, and
the treasurer is ex-officio bank ex
aminer. He makes this statement
after visiting banks in all parts of
the state, and going through their
books and papers with great care.
In this work he is aided by Mr.
Sterling G. Turner, assistant exam
iner, and after comparing notes with
that gentleman, the treasurer makes
this statement. About a month ago
Mr. Turner became impressed with
the large proportion of deposits
owned by farmers, and since that
time he has undertaken to secure
the percentage in the places he vis
ited. On his return to Atlanta a few
days ago, he submitted the informa
tion he had collected, and after go
ing over it Treasurer Park makes
Twenty years ago it was hard, to
find a farmer with a bank deposit,
but now they are numerous.
f T am satisfied that more than
half the deposits in the state banks
are owned by farmers,” said Captain
Park, in conversation with a repre
sentative of the Daily News, “and I
think it a splendid tribute to their
sterling qualities. It is due largely
to the lumber and naval stores in
dustry in southern Georgia, and to
the increase of manufacturing,which
has distributed cash and made a
better market for small farm prod
ucts that formerly went begging,
but the result is due more than all
to the improved methods and won
derful economics practiced by the
farmers in recent years. As a class

One Crow and Other Crows.
A few months ago the gardener
on John J. Telford’s place at Peru,
up the Short line, accidentally
wounded a crow while shooting at
other birds, and he made a prisoner
of the bird. After its wings were
clipped it became quite tame and
was placed in the garden, which is
surrounded by a fence eight feet
high. It thrived on worms and
bugs and became as 4 0C ^ e I s a
chicken. When the warm weather
set in other crows began to gather
about'the garden at early dawn, and
for hours at a. time kept up a con-
tidual cawing. The crippled crow
in the garden answered each caw,
and morning after morning the size
of the visiting party increased until
fully two dozen perched themselves
on the fence.
Sunday morning Mr. Telford heard
a commotion in the garden. He went
to investigate, and found four or five
crows hovering around the crippled
one. Presently he saw three of the
visitors place their beaks under the
cripple, lift it up and attempt to fiy
away. They managed to get the
cripple over the high fence; then it
■was dropped, The liberated bird
hopped 200 or 300 yards, when all
hut two of the other crows flew
away. The remaining two swooped
down on the crippled bird and seem
ed to be caressing it, when a boy
captured the cripple and returned it
to the garden, a

The Review of Reviews says that j
the new movement towards consoli
dation and the creation of great cor
porations has been going forward of
late with almost none of the bitter
antagonism toward it which was so
manifest even a year ago. This pub
lication adds: “One might have ex
pected the huge steel company to
arouse a great deal of public antag
onism, but very little can yet be dis
covered. It is not to be expected
that there will always be such
smooth sailing for the corporations,
but at present the skies are clear
and the breezes are equable.”
What this publication says con
cerning the public attitude toward
the trusts may be said with equal
truth concerning the public attitude
toward imperialism, militarism, co
lonialism, dishonesty in public ser
vice of our new possessions, and im
morality in the public life of our
large cities. The fact is that the an
tagonism toward these evils yet ex
ists and is even greater than it was
a year ago. It may not be said,
however, that the people who fully
realize the dangers of these evils are
yet in the majority. It certainly is
true that the majority of the people
are yet unwilling to speak out bold
ly and sternly against these great

Recently we expressed the opinion

Whafc does it profit a woman if
she gain the whole world of knowl
edge and lose her' own health?
Young women students, and school
teachers, eager, ambitions and full
of energy, very often neglect their
health in the struggle to gain edu
cation. They eat insufficient food,
and at irregular hours; they allow
irregularity of the womanly func
tions to be established, and the re
sult is that they become chronic in
valids, with all their education prac
tically worthless. There is a plain
road back to health for such as these .
marked by the feet of thousands. It
is the use of Dr. Pierce’s Golden
Medical Discovery for diseases of
the stomach and digestive and nu
tritive organs, and Dr. Pierce’s Fa
vorite Prescription for diseases of
the delicate organs of womanhood.
A cure so certainly follows the use
of these remedies that out of hun
dreds of thousands who have tried
the treatment, ninety-eight in every
hundred have been perfectly and
permanently cured. Constipation,
with its calamitous consequences,
which is a common ailment of stu
dents, can be entirely cured by the
use of Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets.
tion which Mr. T. P. O’Connor had
with him at Skibo, as reported by
cable from London in the New York
In the course of a copversation
with Mr. O’Connor, Mr. Carnegie is
reported to have said: “I would
give you all my millions if you could
give me youth and health.” Fur
ther along in his talk with Mr.
O’Connor he said with much bitter
ness and in a hushed voice, “If I
could make Faust’s bargain I would
gladly sell everything to have half
my life over again.”
What must be the mental condi
tion of a man who could make a re
mark like that? No, wealth does not
bring happiness. It brings many
cares, and as a rule health is sacri
ficed in gaining it. The man who
has a competence—enough to main
tain himself in comfort to the end
of his days—is much happier than
one who has the care of an immense
fortune. He cannot use the income
from it, and it is a bother to know
how to invest it. Besides, he is kept
awake, when he ought to be asleep,
thinking how ta prevent others from
getting it away from him.
Mr. Carnegie does not get even
away, for the rea&m who: :
are the recipients of his bounty think
he ought to be more liberal, and
those wno ask and get nothing say
unkind things about him. If it be
true that Mr. Carnegie would sell
himself to the Evil One for the priv
ilege of living one-half his life over,
his life, notwithstanding his wonder
ful success in accumulating wealth,
must be a failure.
Millions in Jewels.
A report received at the treasury
department from George W. Windil,
the government expert at the New
York custom house on precious
stones, shows that during the fiscal
year ending June 30, last, the ag
gregate value of precious stones and
pearls passing through the office was
$21,919,053. This amount largely
exceeds the total value of any other
year in the history of the country,
and exceeds by over $3,000,000 the
entire importation of the four years
ended in March, 1896.
Mr. Windil states that the placing
of precious stones in their rough or
native state upon the free list, has
established a new mechanical indus
try in America, and nearly one-half
the precious stones sold here are cut
and polished in the United States.
A Postmaster Writes:
I wish to add my testimonial to
the genuine merit of Dr. Caldwell’s
Syrup Pepsin. I have tried many
remedies, but have found your Syr
up Pepsin' superior to all other laxa
tives and stomach medicines. My
wife and I both use it, and know it
does all that you claim for it.
Yours sincerely, C. O. Kinne.

with a fleet of more than twenty
tank steamers is said to have made
arrangements with Texas oil pro

as if the Standard Oil Company and
the Russian petroleum trust would
have competition from Texas oils
sooner than most persons expected.
