BIT T E RS AND KIDNEYS*
Card From Mr. Hudson.
There are about 12 families be
tween the creek and river that have
been working all their lives for
their homes,and now will have to
leave them, and no where to go,
and nothing to go with on account
of the Georgia Carolina power com
They have misrepresented things
to us and have backed their water
all over the timber and caused all
of us to be sick, one not able to
wait on the other.
I do hate to see ray neighbors all
down and cannot help them. It looks
so sad when they come to me to
get me to sign the last option I
told them I did not want to sign it,
I was afraid it would make it sick
ly and they told me if I would sign
option that they would have to
clear the timber off clean, that the
beard of health would not let them
back the water on the timber on
I account of health and then we sign
ed the option.
Now I wonder where the board
of health is. Our state has one I
know, but it seems that they don't
pay any attention to it. Some of our
neighbors wrote them and they say
they cannot do anything aboutit,
if that is the case then our people
had better turn them out and eave
that much taxes. It is no use for our
people to be taxed for a board of
health if they cannot act when the
people are in distress and it looks
like they will all die. It looks hard
for a rich company to drive us
away from our homes for nothing,
and no where to go, just put us in
the road with nothing, and all sick.
We expect to appeal to our govern
ment and see if our government
has a board of health or not, and
also our state and if they have we
want to know what they are for if
they cannot do anything. Why not
do away with them we aie ruined.
And will have to appeal to our
people for justice as our poor fami
lies are all down sick, and have tak
en medicine a long time and it does
not do any good.
We will have to go away from
our homes and have nothing to buy
another with. I thought our board
of health had great power as they
can stop trains by quarantine, and
also large cities ana stop people
with their power and if so why not
stop the great power company as
they have brought great damages
and distress on us.
Also we have about 90 families
of tenants and we will lose all of
them and it will ruin us and our
property that the power company
has not paid one cent for.
I write for information as to our
board of health as we are all in

Passes Prohibition Over Gover
Montgomery, Ala.-The Merrit
prohibition bill yesterday was pass
ed over Governor Henderson's veto
by both houses of the Alabama leg
islature. An amendment recom
mended by the governor providing
for a state-wide election on the
question was overwhelmingly de
feated. The new law is effective
after June 30th, next.
The vote on re-passage of the
measure was 70 to 83 in the house
and 24 to 10 in the senate. A two
thirds vote was necessary. .
The Merritt bill is modeled after
the Carmichael bill under which
Alabama was made prohibitior ter
ritory in 1909. The Carmichael
hill was repealed two years later,
following a state-wide election at

Half Your Living
Without Money Cost
A right or wrong start in 1915 will
make or break most farmers in the
Cotton States. We are all facing a
crisis on cotton. Cotton credit is up
set. The supply merchant cannot aa
vance supplies on 1915 cotton. You
must do your best to produce on your
own acres the food and grain supplies
that have made up most of your store
debt in the past.
A good piece of garden ground,
rightly planted, rightly tended and
kept planted the year round, can be
made to pay half your living. It will
save you more money than you made
on the best five acres of cotton you
ever grew! But it must be a real
garden, and not the mere one-plant
ing patch in the spring and fan.
Hastings* 1915 Seed Book tells all
about the right kind of a money-sav

in it. It tells about the field crops
