Just About Candidates.
Now the candidate season is on
and the woods of Butts county
are full of vote-getters, the fol
lowing jesting lines from an ex
change can be enjoyed by all:
When he run for office, he
Was as social as could be,
Always tellin' lots of jokes,
"Hello, Billy!" "How's the folks?"
Early mornin', evenin' late,
Always hangin' 'round your gate;
Kissed the children come from
Helped the old man hitch his
Showed a five-dollar note,
"Sammy, how're you goin' to
Just as cunnin' as could be
"Want an office? Vote for me!"
Wore the cheapest kind'er suits
Old wool hat an' army boots;
Promised, if they'd help him win,
"They'd get rich when he got in?"
Now he's in the office. See!
Just as proud as proud kin be.
Ain't a-telling so much jokes,
Never asks you 'bout the folks,
Voter feelin' mighty sore
"Never saw your face before!"
Wool hat, boots, done laid 'um
Wears a beaver, slick an' high:
Voters stand an' look an' wonder
"Want an office? Go to thunder!"
The South and the President.
Mr. Bailey considers the presi
dency beyond him, or any South
ern man of his generation. Is he
right about that? How mucc
longer are Southern men to be
barred from aspiring to that
great office? For some years
after the civil war the situation
was plain enough. The leading
men of the South had all served
the Confederacy in one capacity
or another-the majority had
been soldiers-and on that ac
count they were not available.
The nomination of the ablest and
best of them was not for a
moment to be considered. We
were still too close to the time of
the terrible conflict for candidacy
of such a man to inspire con
fidence out of the South. But
when Mr. Bailey speaks of him
self and Southern me-n of his
generation he points to the fact
that bey were children when the
civil tar was in progress. He
himself sniffled the conflict from
his nurse's arms. So that he and
the Southern men of his gener -
tion are associate&.. the
The only flag they have ever
known is the stars and stripes;
and how loyal the men of the
South, and particularly the young
men, now are to that flag was
shown in the war with Spain.
Why then should not a man of
that stamp offer.for the proud
honlr of the presidency, when
his section of the country casts
eight-tenths of the electoral votes
necessary to the election of a
Democrat to that office? Have
not the Democratic leaders from
the South effaced themselves at
national conventions long enoug~n?
Are' they not warranted by char
acter, by capacity, and by train
ing to take placis at the head of
the procession, instead of meekly
bringing up the rear under orders
from Tammany Hall?-Washing

If the present high prlices of
beef are due in any measure to ,
the scarcity of beef cattle, which
9 is altogether probable, it will be
quite awhile before the supply
can b)e madle equal to tl:e demand,t
and in the meantime there will be ~
a harvest for tho!:e who at once
give their attention to the pro- ~
duction of mutton, chickens, por-k I

calculated to act as satisfactorf

The Exncs:tion During the Month cf
The Southern railroad, the At
lantic Coast Line and the Plant
System have arranged to con
tinue the sale of the cheap Tues
dav tickets to the exposition, as
sold during the month of April,
on every Tuesday and Thursday
during the month of May. This
will enable all who have not yet
visited the exposition to do so
during its closing month, and
those who have visited it, to
again take advantage of the low
rate offered, as nmauy will .un
There has been a great deal
said through the columns of the
papers in regard to the exposi
tion, and its many attractive fea
tures. There is one however that
ha,s been almost entirely ignorgd
or overlooked by all correspoh -
dents, and probably from the
fact that its location is such as
not to attract general attention.
Reference is made to the Grass
Garden of the U. S. Agricultural
Department, which consists of
f r acres of ground, and is lo
cp just east of the encamp
t of the Marine corps.
,ery farmer who visits the ex
ition, should visit this garden.
Were aie to be found growing
over fifty different specimens of
forage crops suitable for our
Southern suns, as well as wheat,
rye, and barley of many kinds
The seeds of the different forage
crops referred to have been
gathered from Africa, EQypt,
China, Ireland, Scotland, England,
Australia, and many other coun
tries. The representative of the
Agricultural Department in
charge of the Garden is a prac
tical farmer, and can-. give the
visitor full information- regarding
each and every species of the
crop, and it can be said to every
farmer, if he can spare time to
come down, even if he spends
only one day at the exposition,
let him carefully study these
forage crops, get a list of such as
be wants to use, and he will be
ten times repaid for the expense
of the trip, and for the time he
may think he is losing from his

A few days ago we sent out a:
special circular, offering all d
linquents a year's subscription to
the American Farmer, if they
would pay up by the 15th of May.
Of course we could have printed c
the offer in these columns, but
we did not care to have some of Z
our readers reading what was not
intended for them. Later we
sent out a circular letter to. our
subscribers who, were already
paid up to some date. within the
present year. This offer was
withheld from these columns for
the same reason as the above,
Or we should rather state that
both offers were omitted from
these columns because we have
decided to hive no more dunning

paper on a cash-in-advance basis,
and those who have gotten behind
with us will hear from us in a
more private way thau through
