AMERICUS, GA., JAN. 5, 1901. London’s debt, including the sums owing by the city corporation, now reaches the great sum of £50,564,019. The first editorial hewed out by Mr. Bryan for his new paper is brief but to the point. It reads: “Now is the time to subscribe.”. There is no better Democrat than one who serve his party for the peo ple’s benefit. There is no worse Dem crat than one who uses his party for his own benefit.—St. Louis Republic. Will am E. Gladstone once said to a friend: “I like to read American advertise ments. They are themselves literature, and I can guage the prosperity of the country by their very appearance.” The London Mail has looked over onr entire list of statesmen, and de cided that the Hon. John Hay is the greatest that ever happened on this side of the water. It is fortunate for Mr. Hay that he is not running for of fice just at present A cure for hazers has been found by a student at the Richmond Ya., lege, who secured a large aid trusty revolver, showed it to the upper class men, and assured them that he was go ing to sleep with it under his pillow every night. So far his slumbers have not been disturbed. . Eight years ago the silver production of Colorado was worth six times the value of the gold production. Last year the gold production was two and a half times the value of the silver. Colorado is now producing annually more than $20,000,000 of gold. That is one reason why the silver sentiment in that state is on the wane. Mr. Alfred Harmsworth’s idea of journalism seems to be “news ” and little or nothing else. This would, to be sure, avoid the slush of yellow jour nalism, but it would dam up that little overflow of human nature which, when well regulated, gives news a charm and increases gayety. The art of the modern reporter of the first class is often rough, but it is often high. We can’t think that it is all in vain. Stops the Cough " and works off the Cold.

A flood of applications for commis sions in the proposed regular army are pouring into the war department in ad vance of the passage by the Senate of the army reorganization bill. Although these applications come exclusively from men now in the volunteer service they furnish a very fair idea of the pressure which would have been brought to bear upon the appointing power if all classes of place-hunters were eligible to shoulder straps, accord ing to the original design of the Re publican members of the House Com mittee on Military Affairs. Those m charge of the bill m Con gress must regret exceedingly the tor rent of sent into the War Department by the volunteers, for the rush for commissions serves to expose the scheme of military expansion in its true light as a political game to main tain party ascendency and to pay off Qffuiil obligations at the expense of the public. The country does not need a large army, but the McKinley admin i dration needs more patronage and staff* positions are luscious plums for the sons of rich men who contributed quite liberally to Mark Hanna’s cam paign fund. DEATH NOT FEARED. Among the many statements of the progress and development of the cen tury which has just passed away none have struck us more than that concerning the fear of death. It is said that the old time terror and dread of death has passed away to a large ex tent. This seems to be true. We still cling tenaciously to life, but“we would not live always.” Such a toast as “May you live to see the twenty-first century dawn” would not be liked now. Yet two or three cen turies ago Ponce de Leon and others were vainly seeking the fountain of perpetual youth. Now-a-days a man, or woman wear ied with the toil and strife of life is more content with the allotted three score and ten, and many pray for death before that time. Through the Chris tian religion many become perfectly resigned to the dread monster, having so firm a faith in the life of immortal ity in the blessed hereafter. Certain ly, death is not feared now as it was in the centuries gone by.—Rome Tri bune. A DIVIDEND IN HIS MILEAGE Under the law every member of con gress is entitle to twenty cents a mile for the distance from his home to Wash ington by the most direct route, and the delegate from Hawaii, Mr. Robert H. Wilcox,has just broken the congres sional mileage record. The distance fjom Honolulu to Washington is 5,000 miles, and Mr. Wilcox received SI,OOO from the sergeant at arms of the house. As the fare is only S2OO, and as rail roads in the United States do not usual ly leave eongi’essmen under the neces sity of paying their fare, it is likely that the mileage received by Mr. Wil cox amounts to a snug dividend on the amount he paid out for transportation. COLDS The , quickest relief, for a cold, is by Scott’s emulsion of cod-liver oil. We all have colds, you can try it and see.l You will find the edge taken off in a night; and, in three or four days, you’ll be wondering whether that cold k amounted to any thing anyhow. That’s relief. If you tackle it quick, the relief is quick and complete, if you wait till the cold is in full possession of head and lung, why, of course, the relief is quick if it comes in a week. A little emulsion won’t clear and restore your whole breath ing-machine iii aminute; don’t be looking for miracles. We’ll send you a little to try, if you like. * SCOTT & BQWNE, 409 l’earl street, New York. *** TAYLOR’S WAP £ IN KENTUCKY Stands as a Monument \jb To Corrupt Politics $ WE BUILD.
