What to Do and to Be.
The Fruit Industry.
To a greater extent than any oth
er, this is perhaps an utilitarian age.
Not that there is any noticeable lack
in the progress of scientific research,
literature and art, but that the men
tal and physical forces of modern
men are more specifically devoted to
material success and acquirement.
In order that the determination
“what to do and to be” may be cor
rectly reached, the mind must be
developed to its full strength and
breadth by the acquired knowledge ! number of peach
that persistent study alone can give. " ’ 1 e -
The -education acquired in our
colleges and universities gives that
basis of mental strength from which
the force of application and adapta
tion is most readily gained. No
matter what the natural mental
strength may , be, systematic train
ing of the mind is necessary in order
that the combination of judgment
and knowledge may be accomplish
ed and the application to purpose
most easily attained.
Whatever the purpose in* life may
be, the youtlil on the verge of mak
ing that choice must first determine
that he will be a man in the fullest
and truest meaning of the word; a
man determined to do, but at the
same time recognizing that there
are other men whose rights, privil
eges and purposes are equal to his
own and deserving a fuff measure of
Successful meu in all avenues of
life say, and the records they have
made prove it, that ability and de
termination to do well whatever one
undertakes is the combination most
essential to success.
Therefore, it is necessary that
through education a young man
must become qualified for his life
work. Let the choioe be made with
due regard for his business inclina
tions, and the talent that may have
become manifest. Environment may
be a potent factor in the choice, but
wheumade, the application must be
determined and persistent.
There is a growing trend toward
practical education, the training of

In connection, with the recent
purohase of 250,000,000 bushels of
corn by John W. Gates and other
associate speculators of New York, a
special correspondent of the Atlanta
Constitution says: “It is believed in
New York that tue losses of the
Gates coterie on wheat would possi
bly offset their profits on corn, as
suming that they could liquidate
y their corn holdings at high prices.”
If this effort to make gain out of the
hunger of the people should bank
rupt this orowd of conscienceless
speculators, a nation would be glad.
It Bhould be a penal offense for any
person, or combination, to attempt
to create a “cornor” in any food
Since the adjournment of con
gress President Roosevelt has pub
licly denounced trusts. It seems
strange that he did not make some
effort to induce congress fo enact a
law that would at least curtail the
hurtful power exercised by these
corporations that are controlled on
ly by their greed for gain. While
there was an opportunity to protect
the people he was dumb as an oys
ter, but then the protection afforded
the trusts by the republican party
has induced the 1 rusts to protect
the republican candidates against
democratic votes, and on this line
the republicans hope for the help of
the trusts in the elections this year.,

In considering the treaty present
ed by the Colombian government
concerning concessions, rights, 6tc.,
incident to the construction of the
Panama canal by the United States
government, points were discovered
which differ materially from the bill
enacted by congress. On account
of these differences, the treaty can
not be signed before next autumn,
as all the modifications demanded
by thik'government must be ♦sub
mitted to the Colombian govern
ment for ratification.

Within ten years Georgia has as
sumed the lead in the production of
peaches. In 1890 there were less
than three million peach trees in the
state. In 1901 the number had been
increased to more than seven mil
lions. Next year there will be at
least nine million peach trees in
In Maryland, and other states of
that section of the Union, there has
been a material decrease in the
trees. As that
section heretofore has growu more
peaches than any other, so there the
business of canning peach.es and
other fruit has been centered. If
the production of peaches in that
section has decreased, so must the
canning industry, unless the peaches
are grown elsewhere and shipped
Right here a problem is presented
to the peach growers of Georgia. If
the Baltimore concerns can buy
Georgia peaches, pay the heavy
freight and can them profitably in
that city, it stands to reason tkat
the canning can be done more N prof-
itably in Georgia.
Ten years ago one good crop of
peaches in three' years was consider
ed very good, but the 1902 crop is
the third in succession, and the
Georgia crop will doubtless aggre
gate more carloads than did the
crop of last year.
As Georgia is the leading state in
peach growing, so is Houston the
leading county in the state. It is
confidently stated that within a cir
cle of fifteen miles around Fort Val
ley onerhalf the peaches of Georgia
are grown. It is not claimed that
tliis area contains half the number
of peach trees in the state, but that
the crop i3 Eurer and larger. With
in this area it is said more than half
a million peach trees will be set out
this season, and already hundreds of
acres have been bought for that
We repeat, if Georgia peaches can
be profitably canned in' -Maryland
and Ohio, Georgia peaches can be
•mitre profitably canned in Georgia.
It is a business problem. The
liu’K.e increase in the Georgia crop
makes it imperative that a larger
proportion be canned, and it is more
than reasonable that the saving of
freight alone would afford a fair
