The reason that farmers, even If their

" crop. Inasmuch ss the law cannot be

it is the last of the states to con

' unfortunate people.
A Georgia grand Jury which recent
ly probed charges of savagery on the
part of Jail keepers, reported that "the
conditions In Fulton county convict
camps that have been disclosed to the
grand Jury are horrible. They are be
yond belief. One prisoner before the
Jury showed marks from recent whlp
1 pings that made us turn sick at the
stomach. Ills back was raw and
'bleeding, and that prisoner had a can
Ver on his chest as large as a man's
T.and. and he was w hipped because he
? didn't do a task that w as heavy for a
j-. well man.
ri The surprising fact in this announce
meat Is not so much that a prisoner
C was brutally treated but that Georgia,
notbwltbstandlng declarations made In
7hsr behalf some six years ago, still
?4 maintains convict camps. Perhaps it
ft has not escaped memory that when
the facts were brought out about the
- brutal beating of a woman In such a
Ijramp and the whole country was mor
stifled and shocked at the disclosures,
t.: promise was made that the camps
'fweuld be done away with at the ear-
fillest practicable date and that no i
r. further brutality or needless severity
J would be tolerated. Yet, as the pre-
ent-andal discloses, the camp are j
till In existence and the offenses of
keepers are as fiendish as before.
The grand Jury, In an effort to ex
press the extreme Inhumanity of the
guards, says that the latter "wouldn't
have dared to beat mules as they beat
these prisoners. ' The conditions are a
disgrace to civilisation.

the measure and
their votes, com

defeated the bill.
There seemed to
be nothing In the
bill but what any
subscribe to. The
prime purpose of
the bill was to put the bureau of edu

school system of the country much in

of agriculture occupies toward farm

measure, however. Indicates the sort
of treatment that will meet the grow

for the common schools of states.

OLIVIA'S PRIZE PACKAGE BY CLARIS 3A MACKI2, -
Copyrighted, ltlt, by Associated Literary Surer-a. f.
The red auction ling fluttered from a
tree over the front gate and told to the
Tillage of Wgyboro that the household
effects of the late Zebedee fame wonia
be sold to the highest bidder.
Ada Talne, a niece of the dead man
and his only known representative and
heir, was here, there and everywhere,
whunerinir a word of advice to one
eoncernlnc some especially choice ar
tide, finding a comfortable seat for
some good gossip of the neighborhood
or detailing her own future plans to an
Interested group of listeners.
Miss Paine had been Zebedee's house
keener for fifteen years preceding his
death. It was Ada who had soothed the
old man's last hours, and some people
said that Ada Paine was now reaping
the reward for which she bad so ar
dently labored. Others said that young
Zebedee Paine would never have left
home and lost his life in the sea if it
had not been for bis Wack eyed cousin
Ada's sharn tongue.
Olivia Deering walked slowly up the
path and bent her head to enter the
low, old fashioned doorway. She was
a tall, stately woman with abundant
brown hair lightly flecked with gray at
the temples; her skin was clear ana
rosy and her har.el eyes shinins and
lustrous. She wore a simple white
lawn dress and a plain hat.
People turned and stared and nodded
4 at Olivia, and many of them wondered
how many years had passed since
Olivia had been tinder that roof. It
was known that once she had called
to see old Mr. Paine concerning the re
ported death of his son, and it was ru
mored that Olivia had not been permit

ted to see old Zebedee and that Ada
Paine had sent her away with burning
cheeks and anguished eyes.
Since then Olivia Deering and. Ada
Paine had not been on speaking terms.
Now Ada's black brows drew togeth
er in a frown when she saw Olivia a
dignified form moving through the

delicacy," sneered . Ada in a stage
"I expect likely she wants to buy
some of little Zebedee's belongings for
a keepsake," tittered Louise Ramsell,
the sharp tongued village dressmaker.
"There ain't going to be any personal
belongings put under the hammer,'
said Ada hastily, not knowing that at
that very moment the auctioneer's
zealous assistant bad. Just dug out
from a hiding place in the garret an
old mahogany workbox which had be
longed to Mrs. Zebedee Paine and
which Ada had hidden there herself
long years ago.
And in the next room to the one in
which Ada was now whispering to
Ixuise Ramsell Olivia Deering was
watching the auctioneer with a pallid
face as he held the mahogany workbox
high in the air above the curious
"And now this here mahogany box,
locked fast, to be sold sight unseen.
What am I offered 5"
As in a dream Olivia lived the next
few moments. She beard her own
voice bidding steadily against that of
some unknown person. For some un
explainable reason she wanted that
workbox more than anything in the
world. Then, because Wayboro folk
preferred to know just what they were
buying and very many of them pos
sessed "ancient workboxes similar to
the one offered for sale, the other bid

self the possessor of it for the sum of
Somehow after this purchase Olivia's
interest in the sale ended, and. wrap-,
ping the box in her light summer
shawl, she left the house. Her tall,
graceful form hurried up the street,

grassy rond, where her little white
painted cottage stood in a lovely gar
den at the end. From the white cot
tage Olivia could glimpse the sen, and

lost lover of her youth.
Now. she tossed aside her hat and
sat in the window overlooking the sea.

The box was heavy. Somethiug mov

not been opened since Zebedee went

pered that he kept Olivia's letters in

roses she had ever given htti.
