DRYS OF GEORGIA AGAIN FIGHT
Liquor War Breaks Out Once More.
-Alexander Bill Ca$us Belli.
Atlanta. July 23.-When the legis
la:ure adjourned this afternoon, it
was evident that the prohibition tight.
which every one thought was stilled
two years ago, had broken out once
more and that the battle would have
to be fought all over again. The anti
prohibitionists openly declared in fa
v4r of filibusters during the remaining
20 days of the session. The drys
forced through a .resolution calling the
daily sessions at 9 a. m. instead of 10,
and they declare to-night that unless
the new dry legislation is passed
promptly at this session, they will
force an extra session to accomplish
A new feature of the row is a prom
ise extracted from Gov. Brown, be
fore his election, by which he pledged
himself to veto any liquor legislation.
At that time the prohibitionists did
not dream of more stringent dry laws
but were endeavoring to fight against
any measures introduced by the wets.
The ethical question as to whether
Gov. Brown can sign the new bill is
exciting much discuss'on and even the
drys are divided over it.
The bill w.hich is causing all the
trouble is the one drawn by Repre
sentative Hooper Alexander of De
Kalb county, making it illegal to buy,
sell or possess any liquid beverage
which contains even a trace of alcohol.
It is aimed at the sale of beer and
near-beer under a decision of the
courts that to be intoxicating a liquor
must contain more than 4 per cent.
of alcohol. The prohibition law en
acted two years ago merely prohibited
the sale of intoxicating liquors with
out specifying what was intoxicating.
An attempt to put the bill upon its
second reading was prevented by
Representative Ellis of Bibb county,
who held the floor until the time for
adjournment. Meantime, Representa
tives Alexander and Anderson nearly
came to blows upon the floor but were
separated by friends.
The renewal of the quarrel has at
tracted the -representatives of both
sides to the scene and the battle is
now on. The drys frankly say that
the time for abso!ite prohibition has
Dotton Producers the Worst Bears
When They Should Bull the
We now hear of some farmers sell
ing their cotton for future delivery
in October or November. At first the
buyers enter the field offering ten
.cents. They bought what they could
at thast price, then they offered 10 1-2,
'and bought what they could up to the
oresent, and are now offering 12 cents
for it. Why does the farmer do this ?
It is because he does not think and
use. good business judgment. He
should realize at once that t-his is a
game of the speculator to defeat the
objects of the Farmers' union. The
farmers should realize at' once that
the speculator 'knows that cotton will
be wort!h more in October and Novem
ber than he is paying for it now.
With the bright outlook for cotton
t:he coming season to go very much
higher, why should any farmer act
with such little judgmen't? Why did
cotton take a 'tumble on Frid'ay last
on boll weevil report ? One of Price's
tricks to catc~h the suckers. Thbey had
been taking the bait and the boll wee
vil report was all he wanted to catch
them with. Any one with common
sense ought to know that when the
weather gets so hot and dry enough
to kill the boll weevil that it will i.ill
cotton also. Telegraph reports on the
17th of July states tha.t the drought
stricken sections of five millions of
aeres in Texas .h'as had practically no
relief, and conditions are serious.
Rain must come in the next few days
or it will be too late. The world gener
ally does not realize that this crop is
getting such a backward start. Its
nowe'rs of recuperation from this
ime on are very limited and we are
practically up to the period where the
dry, hot weather of July and August
will set in and find the tiny, sappy,
dwarfish plant is in no condition to
st:and the trials of the heat.
Brot.her farmers. just remember if
:t rains in the drought-stricken dis
:rets in Texa.s to revive the ettioni
olant, the boll weevil will revive in
proportion to the cotton and if tihe
heated term still stays to 104 andi up
to 108 degrees of heat, cotton and bill
weevil will suffer alike.
Brother farmers, no need to be
alarmed. You have the best position
in this fight. The man who has sold
his cotton for October and November
delivery will ever regret his mistake.
Now let 's see why he is able to sell
for October and November c'elivery.
This was never heard of lefotre t:he
oranzato of thle F'arm - EduP
America. This I withi itselfi PIald
-zmuh vr farmer to .io in this
m .I on.1f -rZanilzatiPn. 'Wat
t,eas1l tile Fnm' union has
aifis and objeet ?s It is because of
the wreat ignorance of t:he farmers
themselves. But I am proud to say
!that day by day the Farmers' Educa
tional and Co-operative Union of
America is growing stronger and
'~tronger, and being better fortified to
free themselves of the great hurden of
speculation. I am proud to say that
the farmers are beginning to learn
some valuable lessons through the
.teachings of the Farmers' Educational
and Co-operative Union of America.
Its power is being felt not only in his
country alone. but all over the world.
I would to God the farmer could
realize the power be has, as the world
sees it for him. I am proud to say that
the cloud of mist is being rolled away
through this great organization, and
sunshine and brightness.is beginning
to peep through. The farmer is be
Zginning to see that help must come
through his own personal efforts, and
that there is help for him through or
ganization. co-operation and diversi
fication of crops. This is the greatest
lesson for'him to learn, and when this
is learned success is his.
I am proud to say that the farm'rs
did cut acreage this year one and
one-half million acres, and planted an
increase of food crops. I want to tell
you, brother farmers. this cutting of
acreage is helping to make the price
of cotton to-day more than it is get
ting credit for.
Why will cotton producers raise
thirteen million bales of cotton wthen
they know they can get as much mon
ey for ten million bales as they can
for thirteen million ? It seems to me
that no sane person would do such
business as this. If a manufacturer,
by stopping one-third of his looms.
.could make as much money as by
running the whole he would stop that
one-third at once.
Brother farmers, I do not want you
to forget that you have a valuable
crop in your cotton seed, and just
recollect and keep one eye on them
until the price gets right. If you do
let your seed go be sure and know
what you will have to give for you'r
meal before letting them go.
I want to call your attention that
August, 1909, as the month to be
gin fixing a price for 1910 cotton
crop by preparing to sow down a
large acreage of oats and wheat, also
sow plenty of winter cover crops,
and grow your nitrogen ipi the soil.
One dollar and fifty .eents' worth of
Crimson clover seed sown on an acre
of your cotton land about the fif
teenthb of September will grow into
your soil thirty dollars' worth of n,i
trogen. Think what an investment
for $1.50! Also sow one and a .half
bushels of oats with thirty-file
pounds of hairy vetch per acre, and
you raise an abundant supply of nice
hav which will be ready to cut about
June 1st. If you -have never tried
the above begin by trying a few acres
this year, and you will not stop until
you sow many, many acres ini the fu
ture. Just remember hog and hom
iy is the keynote of the situation.

'In the Cause of Good Teeth.
New York World.
Rude dentistry was practiced at
least two centuries before the opening
of the Christian era. Scientific den
tistry is a development of the last
century. P.roper appreciation of the
seeth is a quality yet to be thoroughly
cultivated' among the masses even of
civilized nations. There is fresh and
startling proof of its lack in the re
port following the recent examination
of nearly 500 school children from the
tenements of New York.
Only 14 of these young pupils were
found with sound teeth. There were
I2,808 unsound teeth among the 486
eild-en. But 2~> of the lot had .re
'.eived dental attention in other form
.than by .extraction. The boys and girls
examined were of the number who
have applied for permits ~to leave
school and go to work. Assuming that
they fairly represent in their dental
condition the large p)art of the hum
ber school a.rmy. a tremendous field
is revealed for the work of the philan
thropie clinic and for a campaign of
education among parents.
Bad teeth are not b)ad fr t.hem
selves alone. They influence th& gen
Ieral health and affect depressingly t:he
vitality of their possessors. In Ger
many insurance comp.}anies find it well
to look after the mouths of their cli
ents. Among the best physicians ev
erywhere the importance is now un
derstood of taking the teeth into con-I
sideration in the work of diagnosis
