■ANNA AND THE PRESIDENCY.
The const>«)t mention of Mr.
Manna's name in connection with
the republican nomination for the
presidency undoubtedly ha» a mean
ing far deeper than appears on the
•arface. The refusal of Mr. Hanna
to longer serve as chairman of the
party accentuates the belief that he
i« a candidate for the nomination
•e*insi Mr Roosevei., and th^re
must be strong probabilities of euc
eees or Mr. Hanna would be as em
phatic in his declination as was Mr.
Cleveland. From a democratic view
point Mr. Hanna would be more
acceptable as a nominee or as pres
ident than Mr. Roosevelt. As a
nominee lie is more acceptable be
cause nis well Known connection
with the truets would weaken him
wj;h that element of his own party
which opposes trusts. As president
lie would be mor·* acceptable be
cause of his known opposition to
the proposed reduction of southern
representation on account of our
restrictive franchise laws. It is
plainly to be seen that Mr. Roose
velt ha.^ divorced from his standard
many influential men and interests ;
that the great financial concerns of
the country look upon him as
ecceutric and fear his accession to
power for another four years All
thece things make for democratic
■access if the democratic lead
er· arn only wise enough to
properly handle the situation. The
right platform and the ri«ht candi
■ a«e will succeed. Democratic suc
cess, as this paper sees it, depends
entirely upon democratic sagacity.

peOOD ΤΗΙΙβ FOR US
But Β Mi (or tfee He· that She Had
Feathers on Her Legs.
When Uncle Snort went off col
lecting last week I told him he jaet
mutt select a hen for me that I
wanted to have a little Thanks
giving dinner.
He said: "See that white Wyan
dot pullet with feathers on her lege''
"Yee sir" I replied. .
"Well, you can have her, don't
make a mistake and get another."
"All right·' I promised.
So on Wednesday Mrs. Kyle
Butler and myself wont to work
cleaning, up etc.
I found three eggs and made a
pecan layer cake. 1 thought that
thre »'ggs at lOjcents apiece wereequal
to more than eggs at 25 cents, per
dozen, to concluded myself that
what my eggs lacked in quanlty
they gained in quality. That cake
was good, ask Mr. Henry Hawks.
And Mrs. Kyle made some mince \
pies, and salmon salad and potato!
salad and all were good—ask Mr. .
Kyle.
And that hen Mr. Editor, was a
darling Young, tender, sweet and
juicy, a nice golden brown, baked
to a queen's taste. She was good
ask Mr. Jim Boyd.
So with the gentlemen already
mentioned, and Mrs. Spears and
baby, Opal, Mrs. Bertha Boyd and
little Wilson, Mrs. Henry Haws
and baby Margaret and our own
little family made a sociable little
crowd. All,the day needed to make
ι it complete was the presence of
l'ncle Suort, but 1 need not have
worried as hn has informed me later
that he ate a nice dinner at the
church at Auburn. In the evening
Kyle and Mrs. Boyd gave us some
nice music and songs, and we sepa
rated in the eveuing thankful, not
only for the hen, the cake, the pies
and things, but for the true spirit
of hospitality and neighborliiie*»
for which this country is noted.
"What .-«re you doing?" ask'd I
I'ucle .Snort.
"Why" said I "I'm writing up
my thanksgiving dinner.
"Writing up your own dinner? |
Why, thai looks a little presump-j
tous doesn't it'.1".
"Maybe so" J replied "but if 1|
don't write it up, who will "I'm sure
that we country people have just
as much n^iit to have our celebra
tion· writteu up and to «et our
names in the papers as ttie town
people. To think of it seriously I
do think we deserve it more. κ or
the town people have everything to
' armi·* them and break up the same·
j uess of their livec. The tram aud
I street care, the automobile, the
power house, the printing office and
laundry;,the cotton factory, round
hale gin, and cotton press; bargain
days and first Mondays; clubs,
theaters, aud operas, church and
Sunday school] every Sunday, and
prayer meetings, or some kind of
League, I'niuu, or Kndeavor meet
ings every night in the week, to say
nothing of going 'down town' any
moment. How is it in the country?
Oh! 1 know all that can be said
about the freedom and independence
of country life, but to a lot of people
it grows terribly monotonous some
time, and they grow wear y of the
same old thing all the time; the
never ending round of stern duties
that must be d >ne. Seemingly such
a life is enough to make bruets ani
mals of people. I'm the last person
in the world to disparage country
life, and I'm glad my lot has been
cist in the country and I under
stand abjut the temptations aud
snares that be*et people in towu,
and I also think the world would be
better off if some of the idle people
I see walking aimlessly up and
down the streets would go to the
country aud learn t!ie beauty of the
hoe and rake. Hut with all this the
j life >f the average farmer is narrow
and that of his wife Is narrower
( S'>, I say, let's have more social
gatherings, aud let's get our names
I in the paper occasionally. It will
; do us good and cheer us up. Let's
appreciate the rural delivery, aud
i the little paper that is left at our
dooreacb day. 1 think this is the
i avenue through which the masses
i will finally b* reached, and emanci
pated from their daily grind, aud be
brought In contact and made to se*
aud appreciate the n»w up-to-date
advantages tnat are constantly
being discovered or invented f.r
ι whit? for man's own use? No! I
would not have a single farmer
move to town - town life is not an I
ideal life Kut I would have hiin,
read, study and learu, and act and
nj broadeu nis life, and lift himself
; and loved ones up to a higher plane.
' H « can only do this by coming in
contact with minds hiirlier aud
broader than li s own. Th· first
way lo do this is to love, appreciate
an 1 use the clean newspapers By
this he will |x*rn what other people
are doing and where. Then he will
