Japan does not play the fool by a long shot in aligning herself with England and Germany. The two great nations Japan has to fear are Russia and the United States, one crowding her from east and the other from the west. Japan has ceased to be a sucker. It is said Wisconsin will enact a law prohibiting the marriage of moral and physical degenerates, insane people or people with incurable diseases. Wis consin is a fortunate State if it can afford to adopt snch a law and continue to keep thing moving morally and phy sically. Hill and Olney are said to be man oeuvering for the democratic presiden tial nomination in 1904. Well, let them manoeuvre, if they have time to waste. The people are now more in terested in raising hog and hominy and building factories. The presidential question may be taken up three years hence.—Augusta Chronicle. It would appear that Russell Harri son has a good case against his father and a suit for maintenance against the ex-President ought to result in Russ' favor. With the old gentleman hold ing and expressing the views he does concerning th& administration and its it was a roregone conclusion that the boy would be deprived of rank and pay in the army at the first opportunity and cast upon the cold world. Surely Benjamin will ’‘produce” to a fair amount if the matter is presented to him rightly. . MORE MONEY IN THE SOUTH. The growing confidence in the South has been demonstrated since the elect ion by the heavy buying of the securi ties of Southern railroads, and largely for Southern account. It has been the subject of comment in Wall street since the election that so much Southern capital has been seeking investment, and what is still more significant is that this has been very largely put into the stocks and bonds of Southern rail roads. These are now coming to be re garded as “giltedged” investments. SOUTHERN PROSPERITY. Editor Richard H. Edmonds, of the Manufacturers’ Record, has just re turned from a trip through parts of the south. Always optimistic, Mr. Ed monds is specially so now. He tells the Baltimore Evening News that ‘throughout the entire south there is a degree of prosperity and of hopefulness as to the future which has not been seen to the same extent for many years. In fact, the south is to-day more uni formly prosperous, and with a greater capital, than at any time Th i" ’ ' • |g ‘ '4/. % K the investment ■L I STEEL RAI Ls n as a po sible menace supremacy of Pitteburg. That time has passed. Birmingham pig found a limited market in Pittsburg, and at present is finding a large market m Europe. There is no more fear in Pittsburg of Alabama steel rails than of Alabama pig iron. The proposed Southern rail mills are likely to find a fair market among the Southern rail roads, and, by reason of their ability to export as ballast with cotton as a super cargo, the will find a good market abroad. In fact the Southern rail mills present a more serious aspect to the English and German rail manufactur ers than to those of Pennsylvania. It is simply one more item in the Ameri can bidding for the world’s business. — Pittsburg Dispatch. Stops the Cough » and works off the Cold. Laxative Bromo-Quinine Tablets cure a cold in one day.

LET CONGRESS ACT It is a well-known fact that a Hebrew cadet at either West Point or Annapo lis is subjected to every conceivable indignity and every possible form of brutality that can be inflicted any where in sight of the ordinary methods of hazing; and it is equally true that a cadet of the institutions who is a sin cerely religious man, and who aims to live a consistent religious life, is sub jected to insult and brutality at almost every turn. Booz was hated and bru tally hazed by his classmates chiefly because he chose to live a consistently religious life. For that offense to his classmate he was insolently spoken of as “Bible Booz.” A committee of Con gressmen should proceed as speedily to West Point and make a thorough in vestigation of this systematic brutality that is admittedly practiced on a num ber of the cadets. With such an in vestigation and the report that such a committee would make, Congress would certainly act promptly and most incisively in breaking up the whole hazing system at West Point and An napolis. ADVERTISING PAYS. Any person who will watch those Americus stores that advertise in the Times-Recorder for one hour each day will be convinced that printer’s ink pays those who use it. During the holiday period the truth of this assertion is brought home more clearly to business men than at any other season of the year, although it is the steady, every-day advertiser, the man like John Wanamaker. who reaps the most substantial harvest from ad vertising in the end. At Christmas times, however, the shoppers appear to have more money than at any otfiv. season of the year, at least they seem to make themselves felt the more. During the past week there have been great crowds in those stores that patronize the newspapers. Notably is this statement true of the dry goods and jewelry stores. All have done a good business, and anticipate an even greater volum eof trade during the present week. Truly, the merchant who knows how to use printer’s ink judiciously and at tractively, and who has the goods to back up his newspaper statements, catches the dollar of the shoppers. WHAT’S LOVE. Pray tell me what is Love ? A thing Os which the birds And poets sing ? A melody Intangible, But wondrous sweet And beautiful ? Or is it some rare Prize That money buys ?• Or is it something vague. A hint Which finds development In print ? Or is It a sacrifice And shame Endured In that dear name;, or is it that plain Sentiment Which pays the bill For clothing, food and rent dr is it heart, soul and mind Blind To the world; clear-eyed and true To itself; ready to do And to suffer; willing to give Or to take; To live Or to die for its own sake Or is it pain and longing, Eyes w’et With tears That never can forget ? Or is it— Fray tell me what is Love ? —William J. Lampton. Denmark leads the world for thrifti ness. Her inhabitants have on au average 850 in the savings banks. DON’T COUGH Stop it with Scott's emulsion of cod-liver oil. A little coughing is nothing —the tickling, that makes you cough once, is some dust; not the least harm. You scratch an itch, and forget it. This cough is scratching an itch. But the cough, that hangs on and comes back, is the sign of an itch that hangs on and comes back. There is some thing that makes that itch. Inflammation: a germ per haps; it’s alive; like a seed in moist warm ground; it will grow if you let it, especially in children. We’ll send you a little to try, if you like. SCOTT & BOWNE, 409 Pearl street. New York A. K. HAWKES? 7 THE FAMOUS ATLANTA OPTfCIAN, .. RECEIVED...
