In 1870 Mr. John T. Waterman

according to his honest judgment
he does not to-day owe any man an
apology. However, he knows that
much of the service has been far be
low the correct standard, but no
person has been purposely injured,
nor has any duty been shirked
through deliberate intention. No
person has been the victim of Home
Journal malice, and our bank ac
count has never equaled the amount
of our financial obligations. The ed

courteous and charitable as his en

On the first day thousands of men
and women, young and old, gave
thought and voice to good resolu

error or intention of theirs should
there be a blot upon the pages of

Home Journal endorses and adopts
the following, roproducecl from the

and plenty be and abide with you;
may good digestion and sound sleep
bless your days and nights, and may
you rejoice in muscular strength and
physical well-being; may your hearts
be glad with tho noble impulses of
love and friendship, and may your
minds expand with kind thoughts
for the good of humanity, and your

A New Writer ofthe‘‘Hoosier School.”
With General Lew Wallace and
James Whitcomb Riley as its deans,
the “Hoosier School” of poets and
authors is assuming a prominent
place in the field of American let
ters. The late Maurice Thompson
and Charles Major and Booth Tark-
ington have each contributed and
are still adding to its fame, and now
a comparatively new name is written
beside these: Frederick M. Smith.
Mr. Smith is a native of Indiana,
who confesses that he has “been try
ing to learn to write for ten years,”
and also that the reason his writings
haven’t appeared oftener is not so
mnch his fault as die editors’l One
of his first stories,to attract general
attention was “The Blue Gown That
wouldn’t Fit,” which came out in
the Ladies’ Home Journal last Aug
ust. Since then he has contributed
a short romance called “Christine”
to the same magazine, and an inter
esting note about this tale is that it
is not wholly a “child of invention.”
The material for it was gathered in
Germany, where the writer finished
During last year the banks of At

It will' be well for Georgia if all
the candidates, county, district and
state, come up to the measure of
merit as do those who have signi
fied their desire to be governor of
the state. Of course each of these
gentlemen has partisan friends, and
some of them may have enemies, but
all are able and worthy men, and the
election of neither of them tvould
discredit the judgment of the peo
ple. It is expected that the cam
paign will be spirited and spicy, but
there cannot be any correct occasion
for abuse or discourtesy.
Senor Tomas Estrada Palma was
doubtless elected President of Cuba
Tuesday, December 31st, 1901. Some
ten days ago Gen. Maso declared
that he had discovered evidence
that fraud would be practiced in
behalf of Palma, and the Maso tick
et was withdrawn under protest.
This election will go far towards
proving whether or not the Cubans
are capable of self-government.

The legislative joint resolution
providing for the interest of the
state debt of Georgia to be paid out
of the public property fund is now
before the Supreme court on the
question of constitutionality. The
state constitution declares that this

public debt. The Supreme court

Gen. Uhaffee and the Commis

ports concerning the condition of
affairs in the Philippine Islands.
The general’s conception of the pres

port is as roseate as a midsummer
dream. The situation is profitable
and promotive of power to the com
