REiUBER THE DATE ' FACTORY FOR BRIDGEPORT DeLoach Mill Manufacturing Company Will Leave Atlan-. ta for Alabama Town. ATLANTA, Oa., Sept. 17. Exorbi tant freight rates will in the near fu ture cause Atlanta to lose one of her largest manufacturing concerns. In order to derive the benefits of duced rates as fixed in Alabama, re the DeLoach Mill Manufacturing company announced Saturday afternoon that at the close of the present year they would move their plant on Highland avenue to Bridgeport, Ala. By merely transporting their "basis of operations beyond the borders of Georgia, it is conservatively estimated by officials of the company that the savings in freight rates will amount to fully one-half of the dividends of the concern as declared in Atlanta. In speaking of the change decided uion one of the officials said : "Pig iron is the principle commodi ty used in our plant. The capacity of the new plant will be about twenty tons. By comparing the freight rates I in Atlanta and Bridgeport we have fig I ured that we will save :S90 per month ! on this item alone. We will also save ft. 50 per ton upon shipments of coal, i "Though removed farther away ! from the pine belt we find that at i Bridgeport we will be able to obtain lumber 25 per cent, cheaper than In Atlanta. "As regards outgoing shipments, a comparison of the rates shows that it will cost ns f0. 40 less to ship a carload of machinery from Bridgeport to St Louis than it would cost to ship same from Atlanta to St. Louis corresponding reduction exists in the A the rates to St. Paul." The DeLoach Manufacturing com pany has acquired a site of forty acres in BridureDort. which is located in the extreme northeast corner of Alabama, twenty-eight miles from Chattanooga, on the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis railroad. Actual building operations will begin on the first of next month and it is expected that the new plant will 1 completed by Janu ary 1st. It will be erected at a total cost of $1200,00. In addition to building attd equipping the main structures, it will be necessary to erect homes for 1,000 employes. The work of moving will not begin nntil Christ mas week: and will be finished within fifteen days, according to officials. The present plant on Highland avenue will be operated in the meantime.

About "i .year ago I lived by a fam ily that owned an elegant home. Everything was neat and nice, but it was an unhappy home. The father and mother were of deceptive, hypo critical dispositions; their th.ree little children, ;the oldest of which was twelve years, were beautiful children there was no mistake, but, alas ! for them they were being raised by a fath er and mother that quarreled and sometime! fought. The mother was a member of the church, but I fear she did not value her religion very much. I,think if she had done so pro bably shejcould have won her husband over on the Lord's side. Many, many times have I played cards with them until midnight, and just here let me say that in doing so I -neglected my own wife, leaving her with two small children to care for while I was having my pleasure. It was low down and mean of me and I know now that I did not treat her right and if she had not been a good woman she certainly would have given me a piece of her mind. Women can be provoked to , resent the rascally treatment they get from their brutes of husbands. But in the case of the family above I have never been able to solve why they lived so unhappily together, . unless it was because of a streak of jealousy that had found lodgement in the wife's heart. Here I would like to say some women and men conjure up jealousy without cause. This woman's husband was true to her I well know, but like a great many other men, was social and live ly, and very fond of dancing. I suppose a jealous wife or husband is about as miserable a creature as lives, but these two people, as I said, were deceptive and hypocritical and wanted their neighbors to believe their home was a happy home. It was "darling, sugar and flower" when company was about and a hell when no one was around. In this case I be lieve the wife was more at fault than the husband for the reason she didn't live a christian life and would play cards and was one of the best euchre players 1 1 ever saw, consequently her love of cards killed her christian in fluence, like another lady who kept a card table in her home. She gave a card party and among' the party was a brilliant wid ' gifted young - man. . In her home fie learned to play cards and took his first drink of wine. , He learn ed to love both and became a drunkard and a gambler and today fills a drunk ard's grave and she is responsible for this young man's downfall and ruin. I've lived long enough to learn that as we sow so shall we reap. The seed we it 'in i id! y uanu.

Here is a home and a young man ruined because of cards.' It is not safe to allow the play ing of cards in any home. I hope none of the News readers allow it in their homes. UNCLE GID.

AGED MAN INJURED. BRIDGEORT, Ala., Sept. 14. -Mr. A. Slover, a well-known old gentleman, who lives with his daughter, Mrs. Williams, had a bad fall which injur ed him internally, and little hope is entertained for his recovery. He has always been very active and although he is eighty-four years old, is as sprightly as a much younger man? He has been -unconscious most of the time since the injury, but says he re members sittjng on the porch and sud denly turning blind, got up and start ed into the house, but it is supposed, fell backward down the steps, cutting his head and eye very badly. The right side is terribly bruised and swol len. . . - No Turning Out. It was a meetyig in a pioneer town -to discuss the bringing iu of a railroad and after the Colonel had spoken for an hour on the benefits to be derived he asked for others to get up and state their opinions. In answer, Joe Tompkins arose and wanted to know how it would be if he was walking along the track some day and met a train would he have to get off the track or would the train back up The Colonel replied that railroad trains always had the right of way and Joe continued : "Then I'm agin yer railroads, and we've had 'nuff gab. The only durned thing I ever turned out fur was an av elanche that slid a hull mountain sev en miles down into the valley, and I' ye alius , been ,dawg-gone sorry I did . that'' ' " - The Colonel tried to dodge the issue, but the meeting broke up in disorder and the railroaii was never built.
