The Georgia Legislature has passed
a resolution calling upon thc national
government to appropriate to the
Southern States for educational pur

A bill to reduce thc South's repre

McKinley killed the scheme in the

the policy of thc McKinley adminis
In the latest iigurcs of thc census it
appears that there are in this country
1,800,000 more men than women. In
Eurolie the difference is thc other
way. It would seem, therefore, thf.t.
thc disposition in international mar
riages should be modified. Instead
of Europeans seeking American brides

The Southern Railway's fast train,
which has been operated each winter
between Xew York and Florida, will
hereafter be known as the Southern's
Palm Limited and tho initial trip will
be made early ic January. Its equip

servation, club, dining and compart

every respect the most magnificent,
train ever operated in thc South.
Thc statistician of tho department
of agriculture reports 0,074,000 bales
as tho probable cotton producion of
tho United States in 1901-1902. The
area picked, or to be picked, is esti
mated at 20,802,230 acres, a reduction
of 730,216 acres, or 2.6 porccnt of the
acreage planted. The total produc
tion of lint cotton is estimated at 4,
629,954,000 pounds, an average of 169
pounds per acre, picked or to be pick
James Farrell, of harbours vii le,
West Virginia, who recently celebra
ted the one hundred and fifth anniver
sary of his birth, served in the war of
1812 and later waa in Mexioo, under
Jefferson Davis. When the war be
tween the Statea broke ont he enlist
ed, although no longer a young man,
and saw four years of service. He
was probably the oldest veteran to
offer his serv?tes to the government
when the Spanish war broke out.
In Chicago any boy over 10 years
old who is spanked by a teaoher or
parent has a remedy at law in the form
of an injunction. In a decision a few
deys ago Judge Tuthill said boys over
10 years should not be spanked. "It
does not do a boy any good after that,"
said the Court, "and, I fear, does him
much harm." Theso remarks did not
escape tho notice of some thousands
of small boys. They bought news
papers; and with thc words of tho
Court heavily underscored, gavo the
papers to teachers and parents.

Free trado woula increase our ex
port trade with Cuba, which is a natu
ral market for us, but which has never
been tho customer i* should be, and
which it will become under a free

inexcusable action Cuba would now be
United States territory. Some day ;t

It is to be hoped that tho Geuernl
Assembly, at its next session, will re
district the State, and do away with
the ill-formed and ill-advised districts
as they stand at present. The rights
of the franchise are now so secure
that there is no longer any necessity
for keeping up tho present lines.
When the State was redistricted be
fore, the cry was made that it was nc
ceasar3' because it was the only way to
retaiu white Representatives. This
bugaboo no longer exists, and there

A hundred things happen evory
week that thc newspaper man never
sees. Ho does tho best ho can, keeps
his eyes and ears open, but he is only
a human being and neither omniscient
nor omnipresent. You often wonder
why this or that was not published,
and maybe you say newspapers have
their favorites. A local newspaper
docs its best to give all the news and
will gladly publish any item of general
interest. But before you oensure be
certain that you have done your psri.

Thc Anderson Lynching.
Lynching is not to bc tolerated at a
great distance from the critic. It is
very materially diff?rent when the
ground for the lynching is nt your door
and among your neighbors, or per
chance nearer still. In Anderson a ne
gro ex-convict passing a country house
and finding only a young married wo
man in charge, demanded something to
eat. Hoing given baked potatoes, the
only cooked food in the house, he cursed
her'and then as she lied deliberately
shot her. Whereupon neighbors hunt
ed him down and took his life. Now if
tho death penalty is sound this fellow
deserved it anti deserved it quick. The i
objection to lynching is in the possi
bility of a mistake, in the facility of the |
operation. In this case it appears that j
tho identity of the assailant was well
ascertained. The Anderson people
made no mistake. If the incident had
happened up in Maine we might criti
cise it. lint the circumstances make
the monstrous difference.-htnreuu

And so we push G very-day Goods considerably back and

The early shopper fares best-because he or she has mest

Christmas shoppers is a Store-ful of good nature, but one is
apt to forget in even pleasant hurly-burly. Then, too, the
very choicest things do. not come in big lots, but by ones and
twos-and who misses the early ohance misses every chance
of getting some fine article.
But here are some things that are worthy of special men
