JOHN H. HOUSES, Propr. DEVOTED TO HOME INTERESTS, PROGRESS AND CULTURE. S1.SO a, Year in Advance.
PERRY, HOUSTON COUNTY, GA., THURSO AY, JUNE 19, 1902.
Written for the Home Journal .
Through misty aeons, all untold by pen,
Or tongue, the subtle thread of being runs.
There’s only one, the Father of his sons,
Who knows from whenee it came and Where it
There are only these—the master product, men-
Who share alone their mighty Maker’s gift;
The gift of; resaon, whereby they may lift
Themselves perchance above what might have
No evolution brought men forth to shin o
So far above the humbler creatures round;
'Hie breath of life was breathed by,'pow’r divine
Into their nostrils, and that sweetest sound—
The linnian voice—framed in a sovereign mind;
All to His glory ever to redound.

November 5th, 1844, May 2Gth,
1902, mark the earthly limits of
the life of Francis Jeter. He was
born near Warm Springs, Ga.
of Methodist parents; married
Mrs. Bessie Riley, nee Calhoun,
on the 25th of October, 1877; died
in Macon. He united with the.
First Street Methodist diurch of
Macon in 1882, since which time
he has been faithful. He loved
thejright asjhe saw it,and followed
it. He was the very soul of honor,
hating all sham and insincerity.
His was a happy, genial disposi
tion, and his friends were well
nigh numbered by his acquaint
ances. ’‘His thoughtfulness of
others was markek, especially
those who moaned or>were*in dis
tress. Such will miss him most.
He was not a saint, but his mark
was not lower than sainthood,and
he fought a good fight. He had a
brief creed, a child-like faith, a
dominant purpose, a growing ex
perience. While his loved ones
weep and are sad, they sorrow not
as those “who have no hope.”
May the “Man of Sorrows” deal
very gently with those ho left,and
grant that grace necessary for
them to get His secret message
out of this dark hour.

TO MY DEAR FATHER.
God has taken our loved one;
Has taken His suffering child,
And though our hearts are ntgh breaking,
Wo must try to ho reconciled.
But our hearts ’are so hungry without him
And the burden seems.heavy to hear,
But God in his tnflnite mercy
Will takeaway all the pain and the care.
Oh, Papa, we’re so lonely without you;
How we miss you no one knows!
And our hearts are breaking with sorrow
While you sleep on in that calm, sweet repose

On Saturday evening, May 24th
at 7 o’clock,Mr. John E. Rushing
died at his home about three
miles from Byron.
The mortal frame was laid away
on the following Sunday at Union
Cemetery, in Crawford county, by
the .side of that of his dear loving
companion, who had preceded
him just a little more than a year
ago; but his immortal soul was
by angles carried to that Eternal
Home beyond the skies, where the
welcome plaudii “Well done,thou
good and faithful servant,”
He was born in Crawford coun
ty, Ga.. a little more than 70
years ago, and was married at the
age 22 to Miss Elizabeth Hardison
of Houston county.
He was tax collector of Crawford
county for sik years and his hon
esty and integrity won for him
the love and entire confidence of
all who knew him.
He joined the Primitive Bap
tist church when comparatively a
young man and his life has ever
since'been fully in accord with
the solemn vows he then assumed,
Christian in the truest sense of
the word; true and faithful to
every duty,, kipd,helpful and sym
pathetic to others.
Ho leaves six children, .viz.
Messrs. J. W., W. »F. and H. D.
Rushing, Miss Mollie Rushing,
Mrs. A. F. Smith and Mrs. H. H.
Dupriest. Besides these sons and
daughters, there are several grand
and great grand-chidren.
He had been sick for along
time, but not confined to his bed
all the while until just a few days
prior to his death. •
He was tenderly nursed by rel
atives and friends, all being done
that human power,skill or ingenu
ity could suggest or initmate, but
all to no avail. The loving Mas
ter had issued his summons and
this pioneer of church and county
was ready and willing to go.
A truly good man has been
called to his eternal reward. Ho
has made his impress upon the
hearts of his people, which time
can never efface.
May the blessed Redeemer help
each of his precious loved ones to
sojlive that they may meet him on
that Eternal Happy shore, where
these sad partings come never, no
never more. A Grand-Child.

A Case For Congress.
The indictment which the Fed
eral grand jury at Memphis has
found against five railroads for
violating the interstate commerce
law ought to attract the attention
of Congress. It seems, according j
to the indictment, that the rail-1*
roads in question had an under
standing in regard to the trans
portation of cotton in the Mem
phis district. There was a com
bination among the roads which
prevented any reduction in the
rates for transporting cotton, but
according to a statement of the
traffic manager of one of the
roads, the only understanding was
that each road would respect the
territory conceded to the other
roads—that is, it would not cut
rates in order to get cotton from
It does not appear from the
statement in the dispatches wheth
er or not the roads attempted to
charge higher rates than those al
lowed by the railroad commission
of Tennessee and other states
from which cotton was transport
ed. If • only the commission’s
rates were charged there does not
seem to be any good ground for
complaint, shough it is probable
that the tacit understanding that
each should control the business
of certain territory was a viola
tion of the interstate commerce
The reason Congress should
notice this case is that with
out some nderstanding such
as these railroads liad they would
have cut rates, demoralizing bus
iness, injured themselves and. ben
efited nobody except a few specu
lators in cotton. It is better to
have uniform rates, but they
should be just and reasonable
ones. Then the small shipper
would stand on an equality with
the big shipper.) In fact, all
shippers would stand on an equal
footing as far as the railroads
were concerned. This condition
of affairs can be brought about
only by permitting the railroads
to pool their eariiings and the
creating of an authority to fix the
rates. Until that is done some
shippers will be favored at the
expense of others and the rail
roads will be at war all the time,
much to their injury.
