A Georgian Sighs For the Scenes of His Childhood. Editor Herald and News: In read ing over again the Annals of New berry county, I like the district bet ter. Seeing so many names of peo ple and places with which I was once familiar causes my mind to sweep over the buried years, as they have come and gone. filling me at times with indiscribable sadness. By these thoughts and feelings the fol lowing little poem was suggested, which I should like you to publish. I sigh for my own. my dear native land, For the scenes of y childhood and vouth. Where I was tenderly led by the hand. And where I .rst learned of the truth. I sigh fOr th-- r.d and humble home stead. Where I first saw the light of the dav: For the wide fire-place and my own trundle bed. Where close to my mother I lay. I sigh for the dear old rock-bottom spring That flowed at the foot of the hill, To which in my romps my thirst I could bring. And, lie down and drink to my fill. I long for the plum and the mulberry trees. Which afforded us childish delight, The holly hock's bloom, home of the bees. Sipping in honey from morn till night. I sigh for my comrades of boyhood days. For the ground cover which we did run. The old-time school house and the boyish plays. WVhere we reveled in pleasure and tun. I sigh for the faces I once did love, So beautiful, so gentle and sweet. But many c-f these have gone up above. And are now walking the golden street. I long to rest 'neath the clods of my state, 'When the warfare with sin shall be o'er, Which is ebbing away in quick rapid rate, Bearing us on to .eternity's shore. But dear to my heart as these thoughts may be, A sadness comes over my dream; For I think of those I ne'er more shall 'see. On this side of death's icy. cold stream. My father and mother lie buried there. In the cold, silent City of Rest, My sisters, too, who were ever most dear. Have joined them in .the land of the blest. G. A. Hough.

There are valuable candidates standing for the various offices to be filled. let us. therefore. select the best in our judgment. cast our ballots accordingly. and thereby discharge a high duty that we owe both to ourselves and to our state. One of these candidates is our pres ent, true. loyal, and most efficient sheriff. Capt. M. M. Buford. who is standing for re-election. Has he dis charged the exacting duties of that high and responsible office well and truly? Has he fulfilled our expecta tions and measured up to that high standard of efficiency made by many good and capable men who have filled the office before him? If so. then we should re-elect him. And if these things be true. can anything else be given in his favor still further to in cline us in his favor? With many of us there is. His record from i86o to the present time is an open book wherein there are recorded the deeds which show up the patriotic. true and loal citizen. When a hoy of sixteen he promptly answered the call to arms, and during the trying times of those fearful years. in the camp. on the march and on the battle field. th-se inestimable and priceless char acteristics of the brave. gcod and honest citizen were then early evinc ed. Old Comrade. A "White Ribbon" Story. \lrs. Robrt T. Burdette was talk in one da- about the whit e ribbon that is the sign of total abstinen-ce. savs the Louisville Herald. "There are some persons" said Mrs. ;urdette. "who don't wear the white ribbon with sincerity. They w,ear it. perhaps.'about as hypocriti cally as it was worn by an employee of a certan 'brewer. "This employee. after years of dis sipation. appeared one day at the brewery with the white ribbon on his breast. Nothing was said to him and he wore it for several months. Then one day the head of the nirm hap pened to notice -the man's badge, and approached him. 'Why, Frank.' he said. 'it is strange to see you. a brexver xwearing white ribbon. Why do you do it?' t is like this.' said the wvork man. ' ear the ribbon because it makes men like to temDt me. and whewn I m tempted I succumb, sir.' The talkatix'e age is passing out. The world is turning more and more to people who do things. Miss Bessic Carlisle, will open her Music School, at her resi dence on the 1st day of September, 1904.
