WHAT MAKES A TOWN PROSPER.
An Atlanta man now residing in
Charleston was talking of the -At
lanta spirit* when a North Caro
linian declared hi. talk only -nor
Atlanta hot air." Then the tueo
got down to business and iadc a
wager on the strength of the "At
' lanta spirit."
The Atlantan asserted that his
city would build at the St. Louis
expo 't'on a model of t-he new un
ion statioi- to be erected in the Gate
Ci'tv: that he,would wheel an At
lanta made wheel-barrow from the
present union depot to the model at
the exposition and would make
more than two and a half miles an
hour on the trip. The Atlantan has
already won $25 on his first propo
sition. since the model depot has
been authorized. and if he carries
out his part in full he will be rich
er by $500. To show their appre
ciation of his defense of the city.
Atlanta manufacturers have agreed
to.fuinish him with every piece of
clothing he shall wear on his jour
ney. One house contributes coat,
vest and trousers: another shirts.

This exhibit not only exemplifies
the "Atlanta spirit" but it illus

which manufactures everything
that a man wears can be sure of
permanent prosperity-it keeps its
money at home among its own peo

make any town great. "hot air" or
no "hot air." It won't do to put
all your eggs in one basket, for the
boy who carries the basket may
stump his toe and then all your eggs
The Atlanta spirit is worth a
great deal to any town. By that
we mean the spirit which always
has a good word for the town and
the people who compose it. We are
too prone to make unkind remarks,
not only about our town but about
our neighbors. We need the spiri1
which, pushes along and not that
which pulls back and acts rather
as a stumbling block to progress.
The annual meeting of the board
of trade of Newberry will be held

are interested in the city- and thus

A miagistate in Harlem court.
New York city, tittered a v-ery sig
nificant statement the other day
when he said:
*Yesterday I had before me thir
-tv-five boy prisoners. Thirty-three
of them w~ere confirmed cigarette
smokers. Today, from a reliable
source. I have made the grue-some
discovery that two of the largest
*cigarette manufacturers in this
*-country soak their product in a
*weak solution of opium.
* If the da- covered eight hours in
business, the court w~as kept busy
wvith this horde of y-oung boys all
- the tiine. thirtv-three were con
firmed cigarette smokers.
* It has been understood for a
considerable time that some cigar
ettes and some b)randls of snuff had
*dope" qualities. Doubtless this in
sures their p)opularity with thost)5
w~ho enjoy the doped articles.
Onium is like whisker. it creater
a growing appetite, grows witl'
what it feeds upon. The cigrarette
smoker enjoys the (lope senatior
and after a time he is as craving for
the sensation as he is for the taste
and smell of tobacco.
Never a day passes that some
murder, homicide or trouble with
police is not chronicled. How much
is due to doped tobacco which is
used no one can tell, of course, but
opium is a true ally of bad whiskey,
and its victims are generally ad
dicted to the other vice.
The history of eigarette usin.g
by young boys ':s ould be a startling
Srevelation to mnany of their mothers
if they understood the alarinn
propotionsto wich i has gx
in this country. It is a deadly hab

the cigarettes are steeped in a dope
drug to dro,-n the senses of the
user the crime is diabolical.-At
\Vhat is true in New York is no
doubt true vherever the cigarette

hoys and older people. too. who are
a(1ddicted t this habit. 'e print the

..Proper Treatment of Pneumonia...
Pneamonia is too dangerous a dis
ease for anyone to attempt to doctor
himself, although h emay have the
proper remedies at hand. A physician
should always be called. It should be
borne in mind, however, that pneu
monia always results from an attack
oi the grip, and that by giving Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy the threat
ened attack of pneumonia may be
warded off. This remedy is also used
by physicians in the treatment of
pneumonia with the best results. Dr.
WV. J. Smith, of Sanders. Ala., who is
also a druggist. says of it: "I have
been selling Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy and prescribing it in my prac
tice for the past six years. I use it in
cases of pneumonia and have always
gotten the best results." Sold by
