It seems Yery odd for us to look
back upon tne alteration inthought
md opinioniwhich has taken place
in the last fjew centuries of the
In the rough and warlike times
ffomen were very proud to get a
safe asylumi for their daughters
under a husband’s roof, and hur
ried them into marriage at the
In those times a girl of fourteen
or fifteen years of age was very
popular; a woman’s charms seem
to be less attractive now than
they were in those times. At
twenty-two a girl was said to be
losing her attractions and growing
old, and a girl who passed nine
teen without coming a wife was
considered past all hopes of mar
riage. An early marriage was' an
absolute necessity in those times.
When our grand-mothers were
young, even the
was considered the “Old maids
first corner,” and if they reached
thirty, a still more unappropriat
ed blessing, her case was looked
upon as hopeless.
Now-a-days we have wonderful
ly changed all this. Early mar
riages are looked upon with dis
favor, and year by year the mar
riage years grow later. This is
partly due, no doubt, to the fact
that men are less able to support
their wives till they approach
middle age; but another thing is
that the typical old maid is now
Unmarried women of uncertain
age are sometimes the most de
lightful members of which society
boasts. They are bright, good-
tempered, amusing and full of in
terest, and ire very often the most
popular companions of young
At thirty a beautiful woman is
often but just approaohing the
time when she will be very much
admired. At forty and forty-five,
if she has good temper,she is still
in her prime, and is called a girl
in society, plays tenuis, dances,
and flirts if she be so inclined.
In fact the ✓ girl of seventeen,
just entering society, has not a
chance beside her with most men,
for who will not turn away from
the gentle little person with-noth
ing to say for herself to the in
telligent, sympathetic woman of
the world who knows just how to
amuse and please them. Women
dress in gay colors and this makes
them appear young.
Yes/all things have changed,
and the term, “Old Maids,” seem
to be dying out of the language.

TO SPEND MILLIONS IN GEORGIA
It is the duty of everybody
try to be chee'rful. Cheerfulness
has a good influence upon them,
and everyone with whom they
come in contact. Anyone with a
cheerful disposition gets along
better in the world than one who
is always gloomy or depressed.
The admonition to “Rejoice
with those that do rejoice and
weep with those that weep,” is al
most universally practiced as to

Posibilitie3 of Corn.
One of the most interesting fea
tures of a recent Farmer’s Insti
tute was the discussion of corn.
It has been discovered that corn
can be bred for different purposes,
much as trees can be bred for dif
It is well-known that a dozen
varieties of apples may be grown
upon a tree by budding and graft
ing, that horses may be bred for
trotters, runners or draft at pleas
ure ; and that cattle may be bred
for beef or milkers.
It is now promised to breed
corn that is full of oil for fatten
ing purposes; full of starch for
starch making and full of alcohol
for the distilleries.
This will be done by carefully
selecting the seed that have the
largest percent of the quality de
sired. When this is done there
will again be a careful selection
of the best seeds for the second
seeding, and so on through a se
ries of years. The result will be
that in" a few years the corn will
be very strong in the qualities re
This is a new departure. Here

Georgia have applied to the supe
rior oourt of Fulton couuty for
a charter for a $5,000,000 corpora
tion. The working oul of the
contemplated plans means the ex
penditure of millions of dollars in
this state and sirbstantial im-i
proveinent in various sections.
The corporation is to be known
as the Georgia Lumber and De
velopment Company. The incor
porators are Charles Barry, Mich
ael Jacobs and Charles W. Phil
lips, all of New York State. They
are wealthy and extensive real es
tate dealers and have decided up
on Georgia as an inviting field
for increasing the scope of their
business. The application for the
oharter was filed by Attorney
Charles A. Read.
The company is to begin busi
ness with a capital of $5,000,000,
but the incorporators ask the
privilege to increase that amount
to $10,000,000 by a majority vote
of the stockholders. According
to these figures the development
process is to be conducted on a
Already the capitalists have in
vaded the state and expended
many thousand dollars. They
have purchased a tract of several
thousand acres in Emanuel coun
ty, in the southorn portion of the
state. It is their intention to
make other large purchases of real
estate in other sections and they
will probably begin carrying out
these plans in a short time.
The land is to be developed in
different ways. The main idea,
however, is to divide it into lots,
ereot houses and build towns. It
may be that factories and other
enterprises will also be establish
The capitalists are seeking the
most favorable parts of the state
and it is expected that thriving
and -prosperous towns will spring
up and that they will be able to
induce large numbers of people to
become inhabitants of these new
towus. It is likely that definite
steps will be taken toward devel
oping the Emanuel county land as
soon as the charter is granted.
It is stated that 10 per cent of
the capital stock has already been
paid in cash. The stock is divid

Lagrippo Quickly Cured,
“111 the winter of 1898 and
1899 I was taken down with a se
vere attack of what is called La
Grippe,” says F. L. Hewett, a
prominent druggist of Winfield,
III. “The only medicine I used
was two bottles of Chamberlain’s
Ceugh Remedy. It broke up the
cold and.stopped the coughing like
magic, and I have never , since
been troubled with Grippe.”
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy
can always be depended upon to
break up a severe cold and ward
off any threatened attack of pneu
monia. It is pleasant to take, too,
which makes it the most desira
ble and one of the most popular
preparations in use for these ail
ments. For sale by all dealers in
