A sensible councilman in Atlanta
wants painting eliminatEd from the
curriculum. He is right. Too many
frills have been introduced into the
public school system, leading to a
frightful waste of valurble time
After painting would doubtless come
sculpturing and architecture-a mis
erable smattering in each instance.
Tonsorial artists, says the News
and Courier, are said to be astounded
by the announcement of a London
scientist that he has effected a paste
that will clean away the beard with
out the use of a razor. But the
story sounds very much like some
kind of a skin game.
The lIdianapolis News thinks that
"no free people cught ever to get into
the habit of thinking or any one man,
no matter how good and great, as
indispensable." Right. If they (io
the lone man will soon be character

of hard labor on the rock-pile mayli
clear up the befogged braiun of the
fanatic who has been living off his

"When we see so many young men

The work done on Main street has
had aeveral hard rains on it,' but it
is standing up well. It is a pity that
the town council did not have the
money to make a clean sweep of Main
street, from one end to the other, cut
down the knolls and drag the dirt
into the swags and low places, take
up the trees from out of the street
and sidewalk and put the walk and
street in good condition. It would
take probably $200, and we believe
this amount. could be raised by pop
ular subscription, one gentle.an'al
ready signifying his willingness to
contribute $10 to this fund. The
work already done is fuvorabl;' con,

as soon as possible.

the hospitality of Pickens on that

looking forward to this day as one of
the pleasures of the yeai, when old
comrodes can came together on comr

at least won a victory in which the
people rejoice with them. It is always
aipleasant time not only fcr the vet

the spirit that animated the soldiers
of the '61 to '65 still lives in the
hearts of the children of those sol
diers of the greate.t war on record.
This will be an occasion of rejoic
ing -not a revival of old bitter feel

thanksgiving, as it were: for the
blessings that hnve attendad men
whose patriotism has been severely
tried, and who have found for them
selves, and to hand !o .n to their
children, the priceless heritage of
victory over seif, though their ulti
