The Room In the South
The Atlanta Constitution thinks
there 1? room in Georgia for 1,000
more farmers in every county in the
State, or. 146,000 in the entire State,
Iand that without over crowding.
Thar* la no doubt of it. What is
.ore. there is not only room but also
the best of opportunity for an aver?
age of 1,000 Off more farmers in ev?
ery county In that part of the South
east of the Mississippi river, a good
living for all of them, and, If they are
of the right sort, early competence.
The lands of the South will produce
the most profitable crops; there are
plenty of available markets and
transportation to these markets is ef?
ficient. The South has always been a
section of large plantations, of cotton
plantations, which compare in size
and Importance with the best of the
bonansa farms of the West and the
Northwest and which, as a rule, have
yielded greater profits per acre of
ground cultivated. But the South Is
really a country for the small farmer,
for the man who will care well for a
few acres, whether In cotton, corn,
wh??ut or fruit or truck or some one
of the crops which are only to be
grown profitably in that portion of I
our country. The Southern farm of ;
the future is to be from twenty to 2 50
acres, devoted to diversified farming.
This kind of a farm. In the hands of
a man who will study the soils, who
will gee that It Is cultivated thorough?
ly and as It should bo, yielding Its two
or three crops successively each year
on each acre of land, will give the
farmer the very best results to be
earned anywhere In America. What?
ever the soils of the particular section
of the South In which a man may lo?
cate and whatever the particular
crop* which may be most advantage
ously grown there, the Southern far?
mer always has the advantage over
his fellow farmer located In other
portions of the Union of a more fav?
orable climate, of a greater variety
of crops from which to choose, of
early production and of a larger num?
ber of mnrkets In which to sell, ani
to these is added the marked advan?
tage to the educated farmer of a
larger number of the distinctly soil
building crops which will keep up the
land s fertility.
There are very few communities In
the South In which the homeseekor
looking for lands cannot find avail?
able locations of tho best sort at
prices much lower than prevail In any
other farmlrg sections of the country,
new or old. In that large! region
east of the Mississippi river reached
by the lines of the Southern Hallway
and its affiliated roads are many mil?
lions acres of lu'.d, in the aggregate,
which are to he had on eany terms
and which present the very fines- ??p
portunltes for either tho general or
?peclal farmer. The average farmer of
ihc North would be surprised at the
price at which these lands can be ob?
tained If he were to make a careful
stu'-y 'if their character and llu.lr
profit producing possibilities. They
are only so low in price because there
never has been in the South anything
like an agricultural population suffi?
cient to utilize them and because their
value has never been understood in
other sections of the country.?South?

Ills Threat to a Conductor.
Some time ago a man at Tpsilantl,
Mich., became crazed on the subject
of hypnotism and was sent on a
Michigan Central train to an asylum.
When the conductor asked for tickets
the crazy man began telling of his
"I'll hypnotize you," he said.
"Fire away," replied the conductor.
The man made several passes be?
fore the conductor's face.
"N'ow you are hypnotized," he said.
The conductor looked the part as
best he could.
"You're a conductor," went on the
"That's right," replied his victim.
"You're a good conductor," went

"Right again." said the conductor.

collect from passengers. In fact you
do not steal a cent."

Wilbur E. Williams, as speaker at
the law enforcement convention, held
here recently, told a story on a gas
belt police judge in explaining how
men in such a position had better be
careful as to the company they keep.
He said some gamblers, who were
brought into this judges' court, were
proven guilty. The judge frowned;
the gamblers frowned and marched
in funeral fashion out to pay their
fines. They were "digging" when the
judge passed them. He poked one
of the men in the ribs.
"Well, Bill," he said to the gam?
bler, "this is not the first time I have
dealt with you."
"No, Judge," smiled the gambler.
"But it Is the first time I ever came
out of the game with your money,"
said the judge.?Indianapolis Star.
A. political office In a small town In

The merciless heat made the pas?

plains. Dreary, monotonous, was the
vista of sand and scrub which greet?
ed tho eyes of the wearied travelers.
To add to their discomfort, above the
muffled roar of the train arose the
continuous wailing of a child. More
than one man cursed softly and
?ought refuge in another car?all, as
it happened, crowded. Finally a
harsh-looking passenger spoke.
"Why don't you keep that brat

PortiAcatlonfl In tiie Philippinen to
Washington, X? v. 11.?The recom?
mendation of the joint army and navy
hoard that Pearl Harbor, in the Ha?
waiian Islands, be made the great
naval station In the Pacific, was ap?
proved today by President Taft.
In doing this it was decided that a
temporary naval station only would
be constructed at Olongapo, and that
the proposed improvement of Manila
harbor be abandoned. This will leave
the protection of the Philippine Is?
lands to the army.
The determination to minimize th^
fortifications in the Philippine Islands
to make Pearl Harbor a great naval
station was not, it was explained to?
day, because of any intention to with?
draw American control over the
Philippines. It was done, it was said,
purely for reasons of strategy
For years a fierce controversy has
been waged as to whether the prin?
cipal fortification in the Philippines
should be located at Olongapo or Ca
vite. The naval officers favored Olon
gapo and the army Manilla Bay. on
the ground that Olongapo could not
be protected from land attacks.
The big lloating dry dock. Dewey, Is
now at Olongapo, and under the
present plan will be retained there.
Such improvements as are made at
this point, now estimated to cost be?
tween $200,000 and $300,000, will be
with the idea of removing the Dewey
to some other port in case of danger

Newberry, November 11.?A case
of smallpox developed in one of the
men who came here to join the Bar
kott Carnival Company. He had not
been with the Carnival, but came here
from Columbia. The board of health
has taken charge of the case and ev?
ery precaution is being taken, and
there is not much probability of any
spread of the disease.
Atlanta is to vote upon the question
of a bond issue, and a committee of
citizens is holding meetings in every
ward. The money is needed for ex?
tending the water and sewer systems.
The statement is made that these
need improvement in order to pro?
mote immunity from possible epidem?
ic in the hot weather. A bond issue
of $3.000,000 is desired for these pur?
poses and for the public schools, a
hospital, and the construction of cre?
matories. It does not appear in the
published appealn to support the
propositions why private enterrplse
may not be trusted to supply the cre?
matories. But the advocates of the
bond issue are showing themselves
very much in earnest.
