Now Theyre To Confiscate the
Last Sacred Symbol of Man.

The Question Is, Will Women Obey
the Mandate? llt's the End Many
Have Been Striving for, and Cer
tainly Would Be More Comfortable
Than Skirts. Some of the New
Garments Are Already on Exhibi
tion in New York.
NEW YORK.—The girl of 1909

prediction of a blatant feminine, but

monarch left in the world—Queen
What Paris calls the ‘“‘Robe Andm-‘
gyne,”’ already on exhibition in _\'(Jwi
York, is a frankly bifurcated garment |
suggesting pictures of the peg top
trousers of the early '7os. !
Granted that the projected newl
fashion is calculated hideously to re-|
veal defects of the female figure and |
to conceal its beauties, what is it but
the logical sequel of the sheath
gown? It has veered a little, that's;
all. Now those shortsighted men |
who admired last winter’'s fashion as|
shown mainly in the show girl will|
realize what disaster has followed in|
its wake.
Man has yielded woman his neck

masculine paraphernalia that go to!

girl. But will he permit her to weart
trousers and so confiscate the last |
sacred symbol of superiority? Never.
Moreover, it is guestionable wheth
er any woman after seeing the ‘““Robe
Androgyne’” will consent to wear it.
Granted that there are many who
would rather have their feet eman
cipated than their heads few exist
who would purchase freedom of |

Fashionable dressmakers are unan
imous in saying that New York wo
men will not take kindly to the new |
model. One of them, Miss Ada]
Walsh of 126 West Eighty-third |
street, laughed at the suggestion thutl
any of her exclusive patrons would |
adopt the bifurcated gown.
“I have seen models of the ‘Robe
Androgyne,”” she said, “and 1 cer-|
tainly don’t think it in the least |
beautiful. 1t may find a brief favor |
on the stage, just because of its nov- |
elty. But even certain women for |
whom dress is an advertisement, fa
miliar types in nearly all New York
restaurants, will not take it up, fO"i
it is not an advertisement, but an |
appraisement.” g
“Fashion is such an arbitrary and
uncertain thing,”” Miss Walsh con
tinued, ‘‘that it would be foolish to
say positively that notwithstunding‘
the efforts of the Parisan dress
makers no trousers or anything re
sembling them will be worn by wo
men in New York. But I really be
lieve that if Paris should persist in
the style Dr. Mary Walker would be

Think of the effect, particularly on a
woman with big feet!

Met at the Methodist Church Sunday
Afternoon and Organized.
A meeting of boys and girls be
tween the ages of 6 and 16 years
was held at the Methodist church
Sunday afternoon, when the organi
zation of a Loyal Temperance Legion
was organized with the following
officers: Miss Will Anne Gurr, pres
ident; Miss Elizabeth Patterson, vice
president; Miss Rebecca Laing, sec
retary; Delegal Loyless, treasurer,
and Miss Zuleita Clay organist.
Thirty-one names were enrolled.
The object of the organization is
to promote the temperance spirit
among the children, and teach them
the evils of alcohol and tobacco.
Children of all denominations are
invited to join. .
Beat the Dawson Boys Playing Bas
ket Ball.
The first of a series of basket ball
games between the Dawson High
School and the Shellman High School
teams was played in Shellman last
Friday afternoon. The game was
hard fought from beginning to end,
and resulted in a score of 5 to 6
in favor of Shellman. Dawson made
three field goals and one foul goal,
which gave them a score of 7. It
was discovered, however, at the end
of the game that one field goal was
made on a dead ball, and the game
thus went to Shellman. The next
game will be played on Friday af
ternoon of this week at 3:30 o’clock
on the Dawson baseball field. It
promises to be an interesting game.
City Court Jurors.
The following jurors have been
drawn to serve at the April term of
the city court: J. Z. Turner, F. M.
Daniel, Alex Helton, G. S. Crowell,
J. M. Bridges, W. C. Timmerman,

To the People of Dawson: In the
report of the political meeting held
on Sunday, January 17, 1909, print
ed in The Dawson News we no
tice that we were indirectly re
ferred to by Mr. W. H. Davis and
Mr. B. F. Melton, who seem to have
been prominent characters in the
It is true that a card was published
signed by us and another candidate
for aldermen stating ithat we would
use our best efforts to enforce the
prohibition law. We still stand on
the same platform. We not only pro
pose to enforce this one particular
law, but we propose to use whatever
little influence we may have in an
effort to enforce all laws.
As to the matter of voting to
license near beer we have this to
say: We do not know whether the
ordinance passed by the council
authorizes the sale of alcoholic
drinks or not. It was our purpose to
have our ordinances so framed that
they would not conflict with laws of
the state, as the lawyers all say the
city council of Dawson has no right
to pass a law in conflict with the
state laws. Owur ordinance reads as
follows: “Each dealer in such
drinks or liquors as are authorized
to be sold under the laws of Geor
Judge Edwards was representing
the prohibition element at the time
this ordinance was passed, and ad
mitted before our body that in his
opinion the city council of Dawson
had no authority to prohibit the sale
of any article which the state of
Georgia licenses; that so far as he
knew near beer may contain alcohol,
and :nat if this drink, or any other,
is licensed by the state of Georgia
then the city council of Dawson is
powerless to prevent its sale in Daw
son. When our city attorney was
called upon for an opinion on this
question he gave the same opinion
as Judge Edwards did.
We are also informed that our
higher courts have decided that a
municipality cannot punish a con
federate veteran for selling near
beers in violation of a city ordiance,
provided the beers are not intoxicat
ing—even though they contain some
We cannot believe that it is our
duty as aldermen to disregard the
laws of Georgia. If the people of
Dawson want the laws of Georgia
changed they have a right to so pe
tition the legislature.
Should Have Been Begun Before, and
More Should Be Done Now.
During a part of last week the
street force were engaged on the
grounds of the public school. This
is a step for which the city council
should be congratulated. The city
owns a very fine property out there,
possibly unequaled in the state as a
sehool site. With a little work each
year it could be made a most beauti
ful and attractive place.
Why not organize a school im
provement club, ladies, and see what
can be done toward beautifying Daw
son’s school grounds?
From the New York Press.
‘“‘Extract of smoke,” said the can
ner, dipping his brush into a pot of
brown fluid.
“Extract of smoke?” repeated the
dazed reporter.
‘‘Smoke extract,” said the canner.
He took up a fresh herring, painted
it with the dark mixture, and laid it
on a hoard beside a long, long line
of brother herrings. ‘“Now, in the
past,” he explained, ‘“‘vyou smoked
herrings by hanging them up for
days in smoke houses wherein smol
dered fires of costly aromatic woods.
That process was slow and expensive:
we have quite improved it out of ex
istence. We paint our herring now
with this really quite harmless chem
ical extract of smoke—a coal tar
product—and as soon as he is dry
he is ready for the market.”
The reporter tasted one of the
herrings. “But this isn’'t halt as
good as the smoked herring of my
boyhood,” he protested.
““Not as good, perhaps,” agreed
the canner, ‘“but ever so much more
