The meanest citizen has at last been

Uncle Sam is paying his debts at

Unless some new device is contrived
for spending money, the tariff must

It is reported that the internal trade
of the United States holds its own.
There is no falling off in comparison
with last year. More cotton and wheat
was received. Lumber has fallen off
some and live stock inoreased.

A University of Chioago savant has

Tho Georgia Legislature, by a large
vote, has killed the bill which had as
its purpose the apportionment of the
school fund between whites and blacks
according to the amount paid by each.
Such measures have been defeated
generally in the South whenever they
have been brought up.

Pope Leo XIII, the head of the
Catholic Church of the world, died in
Borne, Italy, last Monday, at the ripe
age of 93 years. Hie deatb had been
expeoted at any hour for a . week or
moro. He had served as tho supreme
pontiff of his Church for more than
twenty-five years, and a great and
good man has gone to his reward.
The reports that have come in from
the different parts o! the State during
the past few days as to the condition
of the ' growing cotton crop are very
encouraging. Thirty days ago tho
prospect was very poor, indeed, but
the recent rains and hot weather have
brought out the orop wonderfully, and

President Hiss, of the Amerioan
Cotton Manufacturer's Association,
ie quoted as saying that by September
the number of idle spindles dependent
upon American cotton would proba
bly reaoh 30,000,000. This m*sns ap
proximately five hundred thousand
people will be thrown out of employ
ment and that $900,000,000 of capital
will be temporarily idle. AU this, is
due to the fictitious value given raw
cotton by the speculators who are
manipulating tho markets. If the
high prices were benefiting anybody
save the speculators, there would be
leso cause for dissatisfaction; but the
farmers are not being benefited and
thousands of wage eaners are being

Thc announcement that thc South
ern Railway will double-track its road
from Atlanta to Washington, at a to
tal cost of $25,000,000, including bet
terments along tho line, is a weloomc
one. This improvement has been
needed for some time, and the in
creased traffic wijl be handled o? the
double traok with a facility and dis
patch heretofore impossible. The
new trsok will be indeed a splendid
highway, opening up the South to a
free communication with the outside
world undreamed of in the days of the
first railroad. Truly, the Southern
Railway is doing a great work for the
Corner Creek News.
Yes, we know it has been a long

not had time to gather news. "Tyro"

Our crops are very good, and, of
course, if seasons continue we expect
to make just as good a crop as any of
the preceding years. All of this talk
about a fifty or sixty per cent crop is
bosh and imaginary. Some people
want to cross the bridge before they
getto it, or, in other words, like the
oldwoman counting the chick's beforo
they are hatched.
