"a change" and a change for the
better. But for a long term in of
fice Mr. Wilson's peace treaty would
never have been defeated. Senator
Lodge has been in office so long that
he had gained a strangle hold. It
isn't best that one man should be in
office for so long custom prevents
our President from serving over 8
years even old Joe Cannon is retir
ing voluntarily because he knows it's
best for his district. If 18 years in
office and $130,000.00 has just now
fitted Mr. Garrett to lead, then turn
him out now for he has spent these
many years and much money oppos
ing government aid for good roads
downvhere while the down-easterners
and far westerners have been build
ing them with our money. The peo
ple want a Congressman who will
seek beneficial aid for the Ninth Con
gressional. District and not so much
political preferment for himself.
Hero-worshipers have about all died
out in this section.
Service is the order of the day.
What have you done for your dis
trict?" is the question for Mr. Gar
rett to answer and not "Look at ME."
This is an age of unselfish service.
The real men in Congress as well as
in the world at large are striving
hard to see what they can do for
some one else. There are men in of
fice and out of office in the United
States who have done many bene
ficial things for the nation and their
respective communities within the
last 18 years. A progressive thought
put into words, a campaign for so
cial, agricultural or financial better
ment, an unselfish act of any kind
do "you find Mr. Garrett doing a
thing of this kind? Suppose he was
inclined to serve in a similar manner
as many men-of-service have done,
suppose he spent his spare time (an
investigation will show that he has
plenty of it) doing something for his
district, then he might claim politi
cal preferment. Mr. Pierce served
14 years and Mr. Garrett asked the
people to turn him out because he
had been there so long. They did
it and Mr. Garrett has spent all the
time since 18 years playing poli
tics to keep himself there. What's
the use for the ambitious young man
to educate himself and strive to rise
to a higher plane, if you are going
to keep one man in the same office
all his life. Eighteen years is enough
for any one man the people are de
termined to give some one else a
chance. Vote for W. W. Craig for
Congress. Adv.
WOODLAND ITEMS.
Farmers are quite busy planting
corn. There is a fair prospect for a
good wheat crop
Some changes have been made
with our merchants. Alexander, Hef
ley & Jones, formerly Alexander, Lo
gan & Ford, have been very busy
getting their stravborries to market
this week. They have had some
trouble getting help, as everyone is
busy.
The W. M. N. Ladies had an 'en
tertainment at Mrs. F. B. Preuett's
last Wednesday. All the guests had
to give -one penny for each inch,

amusement. After which there were
nice refreshments of angel foodcake
and strawberries.
We hear that Woodland is fortu
nate in-procuring for another year
the services of Miss Mary BiTd Purs-
ley as principal. Miss Ruth Burrus as
teacher in the intermediate room and
Miss Sallie Kate Brevard for the pri

The Thrifty Citizen Who
Caught the Plugged Nickel
CylTR. BROWN had swallowed his lunch and had
CS paid his bill. Cautiously he counted his change.
"Here!" he said, sharply, "Take back this plugged
nickel and give me a good one!"

Mr. Brown walked proudly out
fool old Brown.
But old Brown had fooled himself.
Brown's day was heavy and dull.
He lacked "pep." There was a
mid-afternoon drowsy spell wneri
he needed to be awake the direct
and natural result of heavy, starchy
breakfasts and lunches, taken on
faith and without question as to
value just because the food looked
and tasted like food.
Thousands of shrewd business
men who count their change, take
their food for granted.
That's what builds up the sani
tarium business, and puts the tired
"all -done" feeling into the mid
afternoon of a business day.
