Another evidence that some Geor
gians never learn anything is found in
the announcement that one man has
died and six more are critically ill down
in Georgia from the result of mixing
watermelon and "moonshine." Bless

Savannah learned better than that

That Governor Harding of the Fed
eral Reserve Board, a Democrat, is be
ing retained in office by a Republican
administration is prima facie evidence
that his administration of the Reserve
Banks has not been without bias or
prejudice to the interests of the South
and West. Whether right or wrong,
defensible or indefensible, he has well
nigh bankrupted the South and West.

Automobiles Implements of Death.
Automobiles, rightly used, are great
blessings to humanity. But when reck
lessly driven they not infrequently be
come implements of death. Scarcely
does one read a daily paper without see
ing one or more, generally several,
tragedies in which a motor vehicle of
some kind has played the leading part.
Almost without exception these fa
talities are the result of careless or
reckless driving. The automobile fills
a need in our modern civilization and it
has come to stay. Motor driven ma
chines add to the comfort, pleasure
and profit of their owners when prop
erly used and rarely ever become harm
ful or hurtful unless the1 driver is at
fault. Always keep your machine un
der control by driving at a moderate
speed and then it will not become an
implement of death.

No Help From Abroad.
"Within thirty days the 1921 crop of
cotton will begin to open, and as har
vest time approaches farmers become
more and more interested in the price
that will be realized for the new crop.
"The yield will more than any other one
i ?actor fix the price of the new crop. If
a large yield is made, then a decline in
?price will inevitably follow. If a small
.yield is harvested, then cotton will sell
this fall around the present price or
.possibly higher, owing to the financial
.condition of the country. One thing is
.certain, farmers need not, at least for
the next year or two, expect any relief
xfrom the spinners and manufacturers
?broad. Ex-Governor Manning, who
has just spent six weeks in Eng
land and Scotland, having gone abroad
to attend the World's Cotton Congress,
has given out an interview since reach
ing Columbia which shows just what
farmers may expect. The following is
a paragraph from the interview which
has appeared in The State:
"The South need not expect any out
side help in so far as cotton prices are
concerned. She must depend upon her
self. If we can organize the growers
of cotton so as to regulate the produc
tion to meet the demand, make our
farms self-supporting as far as possi
ble, organize co-operative marketing
associations and export cotton as de
mand offers, we can work out our own
salvation. We must halp ourselves.
"Regulate the production of cotton
and then regulate its sale. These two
matters are our problem."
What farmers should do even now is
to plan for an increased acreage in
grain this fall and a further curtail
ment of the cotton acreage for next
year. The only way in which to en
throne King Cotton again is to make
several short crops, considerably less
than the world actually needs.

There are Corporations and Corporations.
It has been said that corporations
have no souls. But such a sweeping
statement is untrue as well as unjust
to many corporations or business con
cerns that are manned and managed by
generous, public spirited men who
prove over and over again that their
hearts are big and located in the right
Hie announcement appeared in The
State yesterday that one of the leading
ice cream companies in the capital city
has offered to furnish absolutely free of
charge 25 gallons of ice cream every
Sunday for the orphan children of the
Epworth orphanage. This indicates un
mistakably that somebody connected
with this company or corporation who
directs its management has a soul.
Think of how happy those unfortunate
little children are made by the gener
osity of this coperation, and then
hereafter when you hear unthinking
people criticising corporations unjustly
call them to account for their unwar
Personal Tribute to the Mem
ory of My Very Dear Friend,
W. B. Cogburn.
Yes, we played together in early
childhood and parted while in our
teens, when I left the oid Palmetto
State for Alabama. Last summer we
met again after having been parted
for about fifty years and mixed and
mingled together in sweet association
in his office, in his town and above all
in his pleasant home.
But now with a sad heart and tear
stained eyes I have to say "Ben,
farewell but not forever, I expect to
meet you again somewhere,, someday
and some how. Ben, you have left a
rich heritage for loved ones and all
who knew youi>well spent life." And
I shall now ask someone who may
pass by his grave to stop and say or
think for me. He was one hundred
per cent an American, two hundred
per cent a gentleman, three hundr?d
per cent a church member and four
hundred per cent a Christian.

There was a special prayer ser ice.
for our church, held in the W. M S.

Our Circle meeting, No. 2 conn
ues with the same loving Christin
spirit, and at present that constitu?s
the work of the society, as there hk
not been a business meeting for sel

culated to be quite helpful, on last
Friday evening. We heartily coop
erate with everything that is for the
betterment of our community, which
of course, embraces humanity at
large, and we hope our County Agent,
Mr. Carwile, will meet with more en
couragement, for we believe the ef
forts put forth are worthy and mean
i for a betterment of condition of
things in general. Therefore he is
not the loser, but we, ourselves.
Should we not cooperate with and
embrace the methods brought to us.
What most rural sections need, is
to realize the importance of educa
tion. While some see and feel the em
barrassment for the need of it, the
masses do not. And I am eager to see
the remote sections wake up, and take
action. For there is ample material in
the most unexpected homes. Of course
we are in a Christian land, but nev
er-the-less the problem of how .to get
this material and start the work is the
thing to do. It can be done. But how?
Compulsory education, we have that
and it is a blessing to many, yet the
needed thing' is enthusiasm.

The Bolsevic with a great big stick
Is knocking at our door;
Don't give him a chance; let's stop
We don't need him here that is sure.
We have our share of trouble to bear
Without any of his creed;
With all our vim, let's show to him
This is no place to sow his seed.
Let's all make a vow to stop him now,
Before it is too late.
Don't let him roam, let's send him
And forever shut the gate.
For his theme is a murderous dream
Of riot, rob and plunder;
So he can swim, that's all to him
The rest can go to thunder.-.
Be on the watch out, he's round about
On the hill and on the level;
And the very first chance, grab the
slack of his pants,
And sling him to the devil.
