to their food.
As good cake can be made only with
good eggs, so also a cake that is health

Royal Baking Powder is indispensable
in the preparation of the highest quality

Both Capable Men.
Mr. Lynch is known only by reputa

the Atlantic Coast Line for years having
grown up with the system, and is known

a worthy successor to Mr. Anderson,
and while Augusta will regret the change
which carries the former away, they
will accord a warm welcome to the lat

BEST REMEDY FOR CONSTIPA
"The finest remedy for constipation
I ever used is Chamberlain's Stomach
and I .iver Tablets" savs Mr. Eli Mut
ler, of Frankville, N. Y. "They act

"Cheerful things do happen," insists
Collier's for March 25. "The vote of
Congress, a month or so ago, to return
Confederate flags, was one of them. It
shows how much the North has improved
in temper since 1887. The South is im
proving, too. Stupid arrogance on one
side and blind haughtiness on the other,
have given away to human decency and
some comprehension that the shield has
two sides. Congress voted unanimously
to restore the Confederate battle flags.
Why should any man of heart object
to the memories that are so deeply
burned into men and women of the
South? If their cause was mistaken, it
was not less nobly upheld, and the deaths
and privations which were endured for
its sake were not less real. When Mr.
Cleveland wished to return these flags,
Governor Foraker of Ohio opposed the
measure, not, as be elegantly explained
'that I have any affection for the dirty
rags, but because they are emblems
of treason, and are wanted for no other
purpose than public parade, and to (ire
the, Southern hearts with pride for a
lost cause that ought never to be re
called except witli shame, because the
crime of the age.' Poraker introduced
the bill providing that the Government
mark the graves of the Confederate
soldiers buried in the North. He has
improved, along with the rest of us.?
The Hag incident, continues to give sat
isfaction everywhere, and it refreshes
us to dwell part of the time on such in
dications of a spiritually better state."
Mr. Editor ? There seems to be a
crusade against vagrancy. We scarcely
pick up a newspaper that does not con
tain something on that subject. The
cities and the small towns seem alike
infested with vagrants. Now Mr.
Editor this crusade was not begun too
soon. A person who does nothing is
worth nothing to a community even if
he has the means upon which to live,
but the law gives him that right if
he is the possessor of the means.
Hut the man who has no visible means
of support and yet will not work, can,
and ought to be made to work under the
town or county supervision.
You can find a gang of negro loafers
in this city any time, no one of whom
can you hire to do a day's work at any
price; they are living at the expense of
some white man's kitchen, and the
nickels and dimes they can pick up on
small jobs go into the "crap" or pool

Sometimes the Doctor is puzzled
by the action of the prescribed medicine. It fails
to "make good," and if he is half as smart as most
people expect the doctor to be, he'll soon suspect
that the drugs used for filling the prescription
were of inferior quality, stale or impure. Neither
angels nor men can cure disease with improper
medicines. Our prescription department is always
accurate, always careful. Every ingredient is not
only surely pure but is fresh and of highest quality.
