ATLANTA.—Recent announce
ment that the Baptist ministers of
Atlanta had determined tp take up
psychical study not only with a view
to furthering their efforts in the sav
ing of souls, but for the purpose of
the treatment of physical ills of the
body, has rather aroused some of the
medical profession of Atlanta, and
an interesting discussion is on.
The doctors, a number of whom
have been interviewed, think it not
only presumptious but dangerous for
“he ministers to take up the busi
ness of body healing, and they do not
hesitate publicly to say so.
It is a thing the church has no
business fooling with,” says one
prominent physician. ‘I am bitter
ly opposed to this movement, and I
think it should be taken up imme
diately by the people and crushed
in the beginning.”
Declare It Dangerous.
Others declare it a very danger
ous movement and assert that the
treatment, of disease is a thing the
church should have nothing to do
with. }
The movement had its origin early .
last week when following a presen-I
tation of the subject by Dr. Len G.|
Broughton the Baptist ministers de
cided to take up psychological meth
ods for the purpose of assisting mem- |
bers of their congregations in getting |
rid of certain bodily ills which they
believe are more or less mentally
superinduced, and which cannot be
readily reached by medicines.
The idea of the ministers, accord
ing to one of them, is rather to sup
plement than interfere with the work
of regular physicians. )
Dr. Broughton's Experience, ,
In his discussien of the subject
Dr. Broughton gave an example
which came to his attention years
ago when he was practicing medicine.
The malady failed to yield to or
dinary remedies, and Dr. Broughton
then sought to convince the patient
that he did not have any disease at
all, the result of which was, through
operation of the mind, convalescence
and ultimate recovery.
. J. M. Crawford, one of the
physicians who discusses the subject,
says Dr. Broughton ought to have
been prosecuted for this, because if
the diagnosis was right in the first
place the tendency of his action was
to delude the patient into the belief
that he was beyond danger, which
might have resulted through neglect
of treatment in an incurable condi
Nothing Like a Junket to Make
Congressmen See Things.
Practically all of the members of
congress who went to Panama on
that junketing trip recently have re
turned to Washington ‘‘converted.”’
They now approve of the purchase of
the canal, of the expenditures that
have been made upon the work, of
the revolution that separated the
canal zone from Columbia, of the
enlargement of the influence of the
United States in tae Carribbean,
and of the appropriation of any
anfount of money that may hereafter
be needed to carry the canal to com
pletion. There is nothing like a jun
ket to make congressmen see things.
Train That Hauled Politicians About
Won't Be Operated This Year.
Dawson may not welcome the ag
ricultural “college on wheels,” along
with other towns over the state, as
it seems probable now that the train
will not be operated as had been
planned for the coming Spring. In
dications now are that the train will
be abandoned for the present year,
because of the probable inability of
the dean and other attaches of the
State Agricultural College to aceom
pany it on its rounds.

If a woman is strong and healthy in a womanly way, moth- ’E? s ‘

in the fact that the many women suffer from weakness and O G ;

Also Pledge to Plant Corn and Raise
Meat. Farmers' Union Starts
a Unique Movement.
Several hundred delegates and
officials of various branches of the
Georgia Farmers’ Union met in con
vention in the hall of the house of
representatives at the state capitol
in Atlanta upon call of the national
board of directors and of the Cotton
Committee appointed at the recent
meeting held in New Orleans for the
purpose of discussing and taking ac
tion upon the Union warehouse prob
lem, and attending to other matters
of importance. Plans for the consol
idation of all the Union warehouses
in the state of Georgia under one
management were formulated, and a
committee appointed to arrange the
details for the federation. The com
mittee is composed of the following
members of the Union: W: W.
Webb, W. C. Wood, F. D. Wimberly,
M. L. Johnson, Charles Newcomer,
H. M. Spinks and D. K. Jones.
One of the most interesting actions
taken at the meeting was the passage
of a resolution providing for the
adoption of a uniform suit of cotton
clothing to be worn by farmers while
at work on the farm.
If the 3,000,000 members of the
Union throughout the country fall in
line with this new movement, and
provide themselves with working
suits of cotton cloth, it is apparent
that they will at once create a new
and important use for their great

Suits Brought Against a Thousand
or More Whose Contributions
Are Still on Paper.
Suit was brought the other day
against 1,272 subscribers to the
common and preferred stock of the
Jamestown Exposition, who, it is al
leged, have failed to pay their origi
nal subscripfions. The proceedings
involve about $500,000. In some
cases a part of the subscription was
paid, but in many other instances
nothing whatever was placed in the
treasury of the exposition corpora
tion. The defendants in the suits
now brought are going to make a
contest, some of them asserting that
they were induced to subscribe by
misrepresentations. The lesson of
the Jamestown show will probably
last for some time to come, and will
induce ambitious communities ‘“‘not
to do it” when they feel like pro
jecting a show beyond their means.
Husbands in Jail But Georgia Liquor
Is A-Making, Say “Revenooers.”
According to reports of the reve

in North Georgia is being operated,
although the owners of them are now
in jail awaiting trial in the United
States courts.
* These stills are being worked dili
gently, they say, by the wives of the
defendants, and the women are try
ing by this means to get together
money enough to pay the fines and
secure the release of their husbands
when they are convicted, as it is
known many of them will be.
In some cases, where the stills
were found and destroyed, the wo
men have, it is stated, rigged up
crude coffee pot and lard can affairs
and are making whisky, in the hope
of raising money enough to pay the

Vine Street, North of Fulton Street,
ATLANTA._ _There are few, it
any, persons in Georgia who are ap
preciating the joys of freedom with
a deeper and more abiding apprecia
tion than Bruce Reed, who not only
has a pardon in his pocket after a
penitentiary service of fourteen
vears, but along with it $BOO in cash.
Reed is a Harris county negro,
who was convicted of breaking into
a store and stealing a ham. For that
offense, burglary, he was given the
limit of the law, twenty years in the
penitentiary. For fourteen years
Reed worked away in the Durham
coal mines, in Walker county, up on
the Tennessee line, until one day a
few weeks ago Police Commissioner
sames Key of Columbus called the
attention of Prison Commissioner
Wiley Williams to the case, Reed
was a negro who had borne a good
reputation prior to this e¢rime, and
Capt. Williams concluded that four
teen years was a long enough service
for the theft of one ham.
Commissioner Williams took up
the case with his colleagues on the
commission and succeeded in having
Reed pardoned last week. Subse
quently Capt. Williams had occasion
to visit the Durham mines to make
an inspection, returning from there
the latter part of the week.
While there he learned that Reed,
by working over time during his
fourteen years’ service, had saved
$BOO. Each man in the mines is
required to get out so much coal
as a daily task. After he has com
pleted that he is free to rest or to
continue work, and in the latter in
stance receives pay at the rate of
about 40 cents a ton for all addi
tional coal dug out.
Reed stuck close to work, and
when his pardon came Capt. J. L.
Gordon, warden at the Durham
mines, went to Chattanooga with
him, drew his money from the bank
and gave it to him—s Boo in new
crisp bills.
Reed has gone back to his home,
having announced his determination
to set him up a legitimate business
and make a good citizen henceforth.
Will Be So Quoted in Future by New
’ York Produce Exchange.
Official notice has been received by
the members of the Cotton Seed
Crushers’ Association of Georgia that
the produce exchange of New York
city has changed the mode of trad
ing in cotton seed oil from gallons
to pounds. Hereafter this important
and popular oil will be quoted on
the exchange there and flashed
around the world at so much per
pound, just as lard is measured, and
not by the gallon as heretofore.
It is believed by this change, which
was heartily recommended at the re
cent meeting of the Georgia Associa
tion at Atlantic Beach, Fla., and by
the: Interstate Association at its
meeting in Louisville, which were at
tended by the cotton oil men of Daw
son, that its sale and use will be
greatly increased where the differ
ence in price with lard, being cheap
er, is core easily gauged.
Heretofore the dealers in cotton
seed oil have claimed that putting
lard at 9 cents and 10 cents a pound
and cotton seed oil at 42, 43 and 44
cents a gallon has made an ocular
comparison in favor of the lard,
whereas by quoting each by pound
and putting lard at 9.72 cents a
pound and cotton seed oil at 5.62
cents a pound the buyers have a
better opportunity to gauge the two

A Georgia Ordinary Gets Opinion on
the Subjast.
According to the interpretatioq
put upon the law by Attorney-Gen
eral John C. Hart, who was asked
for his opinion by an anxious ordi
nary, a county ordinary in this state
has the right to issue his own mar
riage license should occasion for
such action arise.
Judge Hart declined to furnish the
name of the ordinary in question,
but he wrote the attorney-general
that he was planning to get married,
and asked to whom he should apply
for a marriage license, since he was
the only person in the county au
thorized to issue them. Either he
would have to issue his own mar
riage license or go over into another
county in order to get married.
The attorney-general holds that it
is not necessary for him to leave
home to have the knot tied, and the
conclusion reached was doubtless a
very satisfactory one to the ordi
nary who has been on the anxious
