An attempt was made recently to pass
what was called an “anti-cartoon” bill.
There was a great howl from the newspa
pers who make cartooning a principal
feature, and much indignation was ex
pressed by them at what they called an
attempt to “muzzle the press.” If you look
at the bill in the light intended by the au
thor of it, you cannot help but feel as lie
does regarding it. There is nothing so cer
tain to kill as ridicule. It was said years
ago, that a cartoon in “Puck” representing
the late Pen Putler running off wiih a
coffin full of spo ms, was responsible for
Butler's failure to secure a coveted polit
ical position. The cartoon called forth a
storm of questions, and though it was
proven that he had no't done anything of
the sort, the cartoon did its work tier
oughly. All’s fair, in love, war and poli
tics, but it seems hardly fair for a paper or
a mim her of papers, to pick out the physic
al or social peculiarities of a man and
harp constantly on them, enlarge and add
to them until he has become the butt of
ridicule for every little penny a liner in
Of course humorous cartoons do a great
deal towards simplifying mooted questions
for the ignorant, but to keep it up indefi
nitely, utterly regardless of a man’s feel
ings or welfare, has made it necessary for
just such a bill to be brought before the
notice of those interested, and there are
many who would like to see it successful.
When a man has bsen elected to any office,
high or low, there is a certain amount of
dignity and respect due him in his official
capacity, and the newspapers should be
the first to show it.
The woman who “nags” has had much
attention bestowed upon her, to the neg
lect of tne woman who ‘whines." Have
you ever seen her.’ By som*'strange streak
of good luck, she usually has a big, good
natured man for a husband, and he always
reminds me of a walking edition of Fox’s
Book of Martyrs. The ‘ whiney” woman
is essentially selfish, and no troubles or
trials are ever so great as hers, she thinks.
She generally has a thin squeaky voice
w ich is quite in keeping with her face.
She has tired out her friends by her imag
inary woes, and is dreaded by them ail as
much as the plague. And to the sensible
woman it lnvUc°^^ J j-g^^s= a SE”ilio'TTgTrTbe
““whiney” woman got more comfort and
kindness out of life than she deserves.
A recent fashion item said among other
things— “To secure the desirable shape,
you must lace at the waist title.” And the
girl of the period says, “No, thanks—after
having had the X rays turned through a
woman who faced tightly, and having seen
a photograph of the result, I prefer leav
ing my waist free too." Which is just
what we expected from the girl who bikes,
plays ball, tennis, rows a boat and shoots
a gun with as much precision and enjoy
ment as her grandaddy ever did. All the
twaddle you may have heard of women
meekly following where someone else
leads in fashion, is out of date. Women
have found their independence in more
ways than one, and they intend to keep it.
And that reminds me, were you aware that
every folly or monstrosity in the way of
fashion, was born in the brain of a man?
From the hideous old scoop bonnets and
hoop skirts, of forty years ago, down to the
“dress improvers’ , and tight corsets of to
day, a man has been responsible for their
origin and manufacture.
We think the hats of today are mon
strous, but look at the pictures of the
beauties of the time when—
•‘Men wore buckles and garments brighter.
And dames wore head dresses nearly as tall
as their colored coachmen,
But powdered whiter.”
Atop of this tremendous building of
hair (real and otherwise, mostly other
wise) the beauties would wind yards and
yards of stuff, like chiffon; atop of the
chiffon they would stick whole tails of
birds of I’arad ise, and you can guess the
The higher education of woman has ac

the fun poked at it by the funny papers
In the very long ago days, women Fke
Madame He Staet, were famous, simply
because of their vanity. There are doubt
less dozens of women today who would
totally eclinse that famous woman, and
yet as they are only a few of the many,
they can never hope to go down to pos
terity as she has. Woman can never be
made to commit such follies as she has
committed In the past, for the simple rea

standard. An educated, independent wo

and it was such a relief to know that his
existence was as thoroughly recognized
as the summer girl, 1 had to read to a fin
ish what was written of him. Of course
it refer. ed to his love making and general
foolishness, but it wound up by blaming
the summer girl for his extravagance,
whereat my anger rose, and l ask these
lew pointed questions. If a young man
begins bis acquaintanceship with a girl,
by wearing his very best clothes all the
time; by seeming to have unlimited time
and money to spend: by bringing her
“Nunnally’s” best every time he calls to
s' e her, and never confessing in any way
to being necessitated to practice economy,
is it the girl’s fault?
Our American mothers are not quite so
keen about inquiring into a man’s stand
ing before they have known him twenty
four hours, as our English relatives do.
The summer girl does not imagine every
new male acquaintance in the ligat
of a possible husband. whe accepts all
courtesies extended by her men friends
as her rightful dues, and if the summer
young man starts out at a pace he cannot
maintain, surely it is his own fault, not
the girl’s. 1 really think fathers of sons
are to blame in many ways for the follies
of their sons A hoy is given money and
his choice of spending it. The results are
often disastrous lor more than one boy
but he alone should stand the responsibil

his ability to take care of himself.

THE NOSE PARTY.
Something About One Of The Latest Social
Fads For Young People.
The latest fads for young people’s enter
tainments are called nose-fad sociables,
They afford an opportunity for mild dis
sipation, dusted with exciting uncertainty.
Here is the scheme:
Hang a sheet of canvas from the ceiling
to the Moor, and cut small holes in the
sheet. Then collect as many pretty girls
as you can on one side of the canvas and
as many good-looking young men on the
other. Then let the girls place their noses
in the hnlaa in . j iTiiiif; min
must choose a nose that appeals to his
sense of beauty, and the young woman
attached to that nose becomes his partner
for the evening.
Now every one is aware that a young
man uses extravagant language. He tells
a pretty girl that her features are graven
on his heart; that he instinctively feels
her presence; that he would recognize her
in the dark, and all that sort of thing. The
nose-fad sociable is a tine test of such a
young man’s sincerity. Of course-there is
always one particular girl at the sociable
whom this young man ardently desires
for a partner. He walks along the stretch
of canvas, and, with palpitating heart, he
surveys the noses that are presented to
lus anxious gaze. Say his particular girl
has a tip-tilted nose. He lias often told
her that, blindfolded, he would know her.
If there was but one retrousse nose pro
jeeting through the canvas, how easy it
would be to convince his sweetheart that
he has spoken true But there are half a
dozen such noses. Each turns up in the
same gentle curve; each has the same
delicate nostril; behind each, he thinks,
stands his sweetheart vexed and pouting
because he does not instantly recognize
her nose. It’s a fine test of a young man’s

Independent Order of Odd Fellows in the
state of Tennessee outside of the cities, is
Gap Greek Lodge No. 72, which'has for its
lodge ro?m a large cave in Garter county,
eight miles east of Johnson City. So fas
cinating is the home of this lodge that
some of the order in near-by towns have
transferred their membership to it.

and has been holding its meetings in this
cave now for over a year. The subterra

GENERATED IN THE HUMAN BODY-
The Result of Imper'ect Digestion of
Every living thing, plant or animal,
contains within itself the germs of
certain decay and death.
In the human body these germs of
disease and death (called by scientists
Ftomaines) are usually the results of
imperfect digestion of food; tile result
of indigestion or dyspepsia.
The stomach, from abuse, weakness,
does not promptly and thoroughly di
gest the food. The result is a heavy,
sodden mass which ferments(the lirsl
process of decay) poisoning Hie blood,
making it thin, weak, and lacking in

Bad digestion irritates the heart,

and weak digestion shows itseif not
only in loss of appetite and llesh, but
in w T eak nerves and muddy complexion.
The great English scientist, Huxley,
said the best start in life is a sound

MARINE BAND'S HISTORY.
From Its Organization To Its Present Stage
On May 16, 1895, a little more than
two years ago, a few of the enthusi
astic musicians of Brunswick met and
organized a band, from which nucleus
has grown the Marine band, which is
now excelled by few in the south.
The original members and officers
were John Baumgartner, leader; H.
C. Morey, president; Oscar Von Beg
ierbeg, secretary; Romaine McCul
lough, treasurer; George McCullough,
George Cook, Lee Leiohleitner, John
McCullough, C. T. McCullough, Burr
The old instruments of their famous
predecessors, the Atlantic band, were
all that they then had but they went
bravely to work and with continual
practice greatly improved in their
playing. They furnished the music
for the Naval Reserves fair in 1896
and word paid $356. From moonlight
excursions, etc., SBO was cleared, and
from the concert in January last and
the recent one $l7O was made. For
music for the Knights of Pythias they
received S6O and $22 from a democratic
rally. The organization is entirely a
volunteer body with dues of 50 cents
The Marine band now has a splen
did set of instruments that cost S6OO
and are paid for in full. These were
obtained on the instalment plan
through the courtesy and help of Lieu
tenants F. D. Aiken, and J. S. Wright,
and Senator 11. F. Dunwody, who
stood the band’s bond uutil the instru
ments were paid for. They have SIOO
worth of new music. The new uni
forms of the striking Aunapolis cadet
type were recently purchased on the
same plan, Lieutenant Frank D. Aiken
makinghimself personally responsible
for the payments. The cost was S2OO.
The excursion tobe given Friday night
June 11, will be for the purpose of
raising money to meet payments on
these last equipments.
The members and officers now are:
John Baumgartner, leader; I. 11. Ai
ken, president; W. H. Way, secretary;
Lee Lechleitner, treasurer; George
McCullough, George Cook, Will Aiken,
Matt Aiken, Burr Winton, Thos. Hard
castle, Chas. Baumgartner, Br., Will
Mitchell, Chas. Baumgartner,Jr., W. D
Miller, Herbert Miller, John McCul
lough, C. T. McCullough, Arthur
Wood. Capt. Tobias Newman is drum
'■major,-ami Lab been tn many ways a
great aid to the band in their work.
Much credit is due Leader John
Baumgartner for his indefatigable ef
forts in building the Band up to its
present state of excellence. He is one
of the best musicians to be found any
where. The ladies of the city, and es
pecially Mrs. Frank D. Aiken, have
done a great deal in making the con
certs and excursions successful, and
Mr. F. A. Dunn has been a ceaseless
worker for the band.
The Marine band now has the en
gagement for the Fourth regiment
encampment of the Uniform Rank,
Knights of Pythias, and will probably
be engaged for the grand encampment
of Odd Fellows in Savannah in ’9B,
judging by the praise given it by the
several delegates to the Atheus con
vention which has just closed.
Brunswick may well be proud of
such an organization, and if support
ed at ail times as it should be, we will
have the finest band in the south.
Absolutely the latest styles in fine
shirts can be found at Palmer’s.
