A GHASTLY FIND.
Workmen digging for tho sewers,
Saturday afternoon found tho remains
of a white Infant burled under th'
ditch between tho Helmont Uranch
nnd Cat railroads In this city. It
was so decomposed that nothing lyut
the bones nnd hair remained, and hud!
boon burled two years or moro. From j
tho liatr, which was siraigni, ino
child Is supposed to have beeu white,
but no other clue to Its Identity was
discovered. There was no box or
coffin, showing that It was nu nt
tompt to hide a father's crlmo nnd

conceal tho crlmo of murder. Tho

PLENTY OF GAME.
Tho hunting season In Kentucky
opened In full blast Monday. Birds
nnd other game aro moro plentiful In
Fulton county than In many years.
Whllo tho wet weather of tho Spring
drowned the first broods of quail to
a great extent, tho second batch re
paired the damage. Many of tho birds
however, have not fully developed
Squirrels are in abundanco, 'possums
and coons aro thick and saucy, and
as for rabbits, there Is no limit to
them. Ducks and geese aro plentl
ful on both river and lake, and water
Bhootlng will soon bo nt Its best.
It is very evident that somo attor
neys practising In tho courts of Ful
ton county havo no regard for a busi
ness man's time. Witnesses or Jury
men aro often summoned to appear
at court right on the "dot," and after
getting there, aro forced to wait any
where from ono to three hours for
lawyers to "got ready." Thero is no
reasonable excuse for this delay; tho
lawyers ought to do their "getting
ready" at their own expense, and not
take a man from his business and
let him wait hours whllo they quibble
about this, that and the other. They
xbould be Just as responsible for the
delay of a trial as a Juryman or wit
ness. There Is no need of robbing
twenty men of a whole, day's time, for
two hours work. No small amount of
kicking Is being dono by tho general
public on this account, and, from our
experience, they are Justly entitled
to register a complaint.

DRINK MORE WATER.
'Add at least a quart of water to
tho amount customnrlly taken nt encli
meal If you wish to dorlvo tho max
imum efficiency from your food."
This water drinking edict has 'gono
forth as tho result or testa recently
conducted by C. C. Fowler nnd V. lt.
Hawk, professors of physlologlcnl
chemistry nt tho University of Illinois
Tho unanimous opinion of tho medi
cal profession has been strongly an
tagonistic to the taking of water at
meal time. Tho argument of tho
physicians Is that water taken In thin
way dilutes tho dlgcstllvo Julcos, nnd
lowers tho efficiency of thoso fluids,
Tho University of Illinois experiments
however, nppnrchtly overthrow tho
deep-rooted Ideas of mnny doctors.
Shelby M. Cullom, a Republican
Senator from Illinois, and chairman
of tho foreign relations committee,
tins two political Ideas.
Ono of theso Is that If the negro
did not vote In tho south all tho
southern states would Join tho G. O.
P. Tho other Is that tho negroes
ought to be permitted to vote every
where else, Including tho state of
"President Taft," says Senator Cul
lom, "Is showing wisdom In his
southern tour. Ho Is a big, good na
tured, wholcsouled, patriotic nnd gen
erous statesman to whom tho South
or any other section may well and
Implicitly trust Jts absoluto destiny.
Mr. Taft is Just now mingling with
tho Southern peoplo In order that he
mey get better acquainted with them
and they with him. They will find
that ho is tho right man for the place.
"Ho intends to wlpo out the Ma
son and Dixon line, and In my opinion
ho Is Just tho man for that task and
If ho doesn't accomplish It, to a cer
tain degree, at least, I shall bo sadly
"Eliminate the negro from politics
In tho South give that section of tho
country an exclusively white ballot,
or a franchlsement, which shall mean
an absoluto and unequivocal whlto su
premacy In the management of Its
whole affairs, and there's not a stato
below tho Mason and Dixon lino that
will not be found In tho Republican
column of tho electoral college.
"The whole truth of the situation
Is that the whole South believes In
nnd really needs tho enforcement of
tho Republican doctrlno of a protect
ive tariff. Therefore, tho people of
that section would like to vote In be
half of candidates congressional, na
tional and state who would support
such a policy.
"But they are hold In loash, so to
speak, by tho fear of negro domina
tion, tho fear of colored men In offlco
both of tho elective class and those
nppolnted at Washington.
"They aro afraid df tho rnco Issue.
Thero can bo no doubt of that. They
aro constantly In a stnto of excite
ment over the prospect of n colored
voto of superior numbers, nnd natur
ally they cling together against tho
black man as a matter of protection
not of their Industrial Interests, but
their personal affairs.
"Take the stato of Alabama for In
stance. Thero Is a community which
possesses vast coal, Iron and other
Industries demanding a protective tar
iff. With her rank stntes llko Ten
nessee, Texas and others, they all
want to be protected Industrially, and
tho peoplo are ready to Join us, wero
It not fopfhe negro.
"How can you blamo communities
llko South Carolina, and Mississippi,
for Instance, for voting the Demo
cratic tlckot, where In somo sections
tho proportion of colored population
Is ton blacks to ono whltoT It is In
communities llko these thnt tho whlto
people are afraid."
