Thk Atlanta Journal issued a very creditable special edition in honor of the Masonic celebration in that city. Tine Kerne Tribune’a souvenir edi tion comes out this morning:. The state is holding its breath in expec tancy. Charles A. Dana’s surname will still remain at the head of the Nev York Sun—but his brains will be sadly missed. Gknickai. Longstrkkt having ful filled his part of the contract and cap tured a sinecure, we will now await with interest the success or failure of his young wife’s protraoted struggle for the guardianship of the state’s books. A local exchange shows unexpected familiarity with Noah Webster in questioning the propriety of the word “boom” as currently applied to politi cal campaigns, and, in the same ool umn, speaks of a man being “acoi dently” shot. Bab I There are newspapers and newspa pers and various rags and things that pretend to be newspapers—aud among them one, whioh, while this whole country was thrilled with the event, end while even in distant Europe, the journals were issuing hurried extras with the important news, knew noth ing whatever about the death of Henry George. The Fair Edition of the Wayoross Journal is a beauty. It was too pretty to share the waste basket fate of the ordinary exohange, and The Times will keep it on file as an example of what an enterprising ed itor and a competent mechanical force can do in a small town. The first page of this “edition de luxe” is in colors, and would attract compliments anywhere. The 14 pages are embel lished with excellent cut*. Waycroas has a paper, in the Journal, that is thoroughly up to date, and worthy of a much larger city. CO EDUCATION—A QUESTION- Among: the questions before the present legislature, that of co-educa tion in the state university is by no means the most inconsiderable. The matter has awakened general interest throughout the state, and the press is beginning to teem with discussions. The favorable report of the he use committee on the bill is taken as an indication that It will have a strong support in the general assembly. This presumption, however, is not a safe one. It is the opinion of The Times that the plan will meet some of the most violent opposition ever direoted against a measure. The spirit of the south is against co-education. It is a step toward the lowering of that high standard of womanhood which has been set up for us in this section by our forefathers, and that has made the name of the southern woman everywhere the syn onym of charming grace, of high cul ture and of unblemished chastity. We cannot, at this late day, consent to in stitute a condition that we have been taught to avoid as dangerous and de rogatory to the pride and boast of the south—our women. Well says the Athens Banner: The idea originated not in our God blessed south-land but came from the land of Puritanism, from that region where women are regarded more for their domestic utility than for their adorumeut to society, more for their usefulness as housewives than com panions in literary and sooial oircles. Such being the fate of the unfortunate women whose lots have cast them as submissive subjects to the utilitarian and mercenary ideas of tbelr inconsid erate benedicts, they have as an es cape from sucb female thraldom cried out for equal show and equal chance with the lords of their laud. We submit that no greater calamity oould befall both the male and the fe male citizenship of our country than the introduction of any system of ed ucation or any other system relative to the relations between the sexes which will tend to estrange our eons and daughters from that high order of refined sentiment and distinctive civilization for which our southern oountry has ever been distinguished. HOW TO KILL YOUR TOWN. Try talking it down. Say all man ner of evil against it. Abuse the peo ple, the business and the entire man agement from the mayor dean down to the humble nightwatoh. Let noth ing or no one escape your holy wrath. If this don’t feloh it, then just spend all your money with some other peo ple. Don’t spend any at home. Send off after everything that you buy. Don’t patronize anything or any kind of business that is carried on in your town, but be everlastingly running around with a full hand and a good word for some other town. If you are a church member have your mem bership somewhere else. Don’t take any interest in the church at home. Bo at outs with everyone, especially those who would do right and are mak ing an honest effort to get along. Be saltish. Be envious at the prosperity of others, and hate them because they have been more successful than you. Do this and if you don’t kill your town you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you did your best.— North Georgia Citizen. Yes, and continually criticise your home paper because it isn’t as good as those in a city of five times the popu lation. OUR SHIPPING REPORTS. In order to settle all questions that have bean or may be made as to the reliability or exclusiveness of The Times’ shipping information, Capt. Otto Johannesen has published a statement, over his signature, to the effect that The Times has the exclu sive right to the use of his records. As Captain Johannesen’e records are the only ones of the kind kept in this city, the importance and signifi cance of the announcement to all those who desire accurate shipping information, can be readily seen. Brunswick’s shipping business is its largest business—lt is therefore a most important and, in fact, an indispen sible source of news. The Times will publish the oomplete report of Brunswick’s shipping, for eign and coastwise, for October, on Tuesday morning. The month does not close until Sunday at midmght aud, as there are always arrivals on Sunday, a report, published in an earlier issue could not be oorrect and complete. Editor Bayke speaks of Dick “Crocker.” Did Mr. Croksr acquire the “c” by crossing it so often? THE TIMES: BRUNSWICK, GA„ SUNDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 31, 1897. THE HOME-BUYER. The man who makes bis money at boms and spends it abroad isan enemy to his community. This truth has been so often established by proof that it has become axiomatic. The doctrine of home industries is one of the main stays of development. Without its practice, no progress oan bs expected. The business policy of the China man, who accumulates, iu this coun try, a considerable hoard, which he expends in big distant native land, is no worse than that of the citizen who earns his competency from the pat ronage of home people and spnds to other cities for those things which are necessary to his existence. The Times insists that the Bruns wickian can supply all his ordinary wants, right at home, from the well assorted stocks of those merchants who are represented in the columns of this paper. If you cannot get what you want here, the objection, of course, ceases to hold good—but, if you can, you are an enemy of your Town when you send elsewhere for it. The Times commends its advertisers to the people of Brunswick. They are the reliable business enterprises of the town, and they will always treat you right. You can pin your faith to the man who advertises. He makes hie offers to you in the public prints, and he is not ashamed of his business. The merchant who doesn’t advertise needs watching. NEWS OF THE ELECTIONS- The great election in Greater New York, whioh is seoond in interest only to s presidential election, occurs next Tuesday, and readers of morning newspapers everywhere will expect to be informed in their Wednesday morn ing's paper just how the big battle was deoided. The readers of The Times will not ba disappointed. The Times has arranged for a special ser vice by wire direct from New York, which will cover all the features of the election. Readers of this paper will be informed, before breakfast on Wednesday morning, who is the first mayor of Greater New York. The elections in the various states will also occur on that date, aj/d The Times’ service will cover all these events. JEWELS OF THOUGHT- Fidelity is seven-tenths of business success.—Parton. It is an utterly low view of business which regards it as only a means of getting a living. A mao’s business is his part of the world’s work, his share of the great activities which render society possible. We may like or dis like it, but it is work, and as such re quires self-denial, application, disci pline.—Pall Mall Gazette. The great secret of success In life is for a man to be ready when his oppor tunity oomes.—Disraeli. Poverty is uncomfortable, as I can testify, but nine times out of ten tbe best thing that can happen to a young man is to ba tossed overboard and compelled to sink or swim for himself. In all my acquaintance I nevor knew a man to be drowned who was worth the saving.—James A. Garfield. There are four things that come not back —tbe spoken word, the sped ar row, the past life, and the neglected opportunity.—Arabian. Tbe darkest day in any man’s ca reer is that when he fancies tbers is some easier way of getting a dollar than by squarely earning it.—Horace Greeley. Opportunities fly in a straight line, touch us but once and never return, but the wrongs we do to others fly in a oirole; they oome back to the place from which they started.—T. DeWitt Talmage. Never value anything as profitable to thyself which shall compel thee to break thy promise, to lose tby self respect, to hate any man, to suspect, to curse, to act the hypocrite, to de sire anything that needs walls and curtains.—Marcus Aurelius.

SUNDAY THOUGHTS. [Cannon Farrar.] Charity is tha one sovereign remedy and antidote for the heinous transgres sion of "bearing false witness,” injur ing our neighbors with false tongues. If you would see detraction in all its leprous ugliness, oontrast it with the sovereign beauty, the heavenly lustre of charity as St. Paul depiots it to the Corinthians. Look on that picture—so soft, so radiant, so angellically win ning, so bathed in airs of heaven, so full of enchanting oolors; and then look at this picture of calumny, so foul and noisome, so weltering with the venom of every base passion, so lurid with the light of hell, which speaks and can speak no language but that of the devil, whose very name means slander. Consider those two piotures, and lest you sink into this devilish spirit, lay aside ail malice, guile, byprocrisy and all evil speaking. We should all perhaps feel a sense of deeper responsibility if web re in mind our Lord’s warning, “By My words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” [Bishop Phillips Brooks.l Be profoundly honest. Never dare to say through ardent excitement or conformity to what you know you are expected to say, one word which at the moment when you say it, you do not believe. It would cut down the range of what you say, perhaps, but it would endow every word that was left with the force of ten. NO WASTE OF WORDS. Evidence Which, is Right to the Point and Reliable- Judge Frank Ives, of district court of Crookston, Minn., says: For some time I have used Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets with seeming great benefit. With few exceptions I have not been so free from indigestion in twenty five years. George \V. Roosevelt, U. S. consul to Brussels, Belgium : Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets, safe, pleasant to take, con venient to carry, give keen appetite, perfect digestion. Mr. W. D. Tomlin, mechanical en gineer, Dulutb, Minn.: One box ol Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets has done its work and I am again gaining flesh and strength. O. E. Ransom, Hustonville, Ky.: I was distressed and annoyed for two years with throwing up food, often two or three times a day ; had no cer tainty of retaining a meal if I ate one. Four boxes of the tablets from my druggist have fully cured me, I find them pleasant to take, convenient to carry. Rev. G. D. Brown, Mondovi, Wis.: The effect of Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tab lets is simply marvelous; a quite hearty dinner of broiled beefsteak causes no distress sinoo I began their use. Over 6,000 people in the state or Michigan alone in 1891 were cured of stomach troubles by Stuart’s Dyspep sia Tablets.

A Contract Whioh Has Lsng Boon Needed, Now On the Market. The Phoenix Mutual is always try ing to offer the very best contract for the least outlay, and in its latest en deavor lias issued anew and most unique contract which is attracting a great deal of attention. Many young men are desirous of scouring a life or endowment insurance policy which shall be paid up in twenty years in order that the premiums may be paid during their early years, and are un willing to take upon themselves a con tract calling for premiums to be paid (luring life. To such a man, who de sires either a twenty premium life policy or a twenty year endowment policy but is unable to carry as large an amount of insurance as he would like under this form of policy, the Phoenix is prepared to issue a low premium policy containing one usual extended-term-insurance, cash value, paid-up and loan options, with the added guarantee that at the end of five years the company will change this policy to a regular twenty pre mium life or twenty year endowment, dating the contract back to the date or the "original policy, thus giving the insured the benefit of the younger age and lower premium, on payment by the insured of the difference in the premiums under the two policies dur ing the first five years with but 4 per cent interest, and iu addition offering to loan this full amount to the insured in case be does not have the ready cash sufficient to make this change. Should the insured at the end of live years find that ha is unable to assume a policy calling for higher premium, the company will continue the origi nal contraot at the low premium dur ing the life time of the insured, who will thus be able to retain insurance which he will find in every particu lar most satisfactory. Could any policy offered to joung men be more advantageous than this Exchangeable Life Policy of the Phuinix? The company has also issued a con tract which can be attached to any of the ordinary forms of insurance, which cootract, at a very low premium, guar antees that the insured will live (lur ing the period obo9n, or it he does not. live, that the company will, in ad dition to paying bis policy in full, re turn to the beneficiary under the con tract all the premiums that have been paid on the contraot. The annual dividends or the Phoenix which are paid in cash each year makes their contracts the best in tbe world. Call or address J. B. Abrams district general agent, Brunswick, Ga.

Tin y Uhl Not Couio Homo Together, ami Poor Henry Oot a Lecture. . ‘‘Henry,” said Mrs. Nagg, and Hen ry’s blood chilled in his veins, for ho knew by intuition that ho had forgot ten something his wife had told him to got, “did you bring home those lemons 1 told you to bring home?” “Well, I’ll bo hanged if I didn’t for got”— “Of course you forget thorn. I know perfectly well that you would forget them when I told you this morning to bring them homo with you. I had not the remotest idea that you would re member them. I said to mysolf half a dozen times today, ‘Now I’ll warrant you that Henry will forget those lem ons. ’ Mother ran over for a few min utes this afternoon and I told her that I’d told you to bring home some lemons, but I’d no idea that you’d remember it. I never in all of my life saw such a man as you are to forgot things. I’d just like to know what would become of this family if I was as forgetful as you are. I told you no less than tlireo times at the breakfast table and I fol lowed you to the door and told you for the fourth time to be sure and bring homo some lemons, for you can get them fully 8 cents a dozen cheaper in tho city than we can get them out here, and you said that you would get them, too, but. I felt-perfectly sure from tho way you said it that you hadn’t charged your mind with it, and I said to myself over and over again during the day, ‘l’ll bet anything in this world that ho will forget those lemons. ’ And hero a dago came along today with sorao in a cart unusually cheap and I lot him go by because I’d told you to get some and I didn’t care to have two lots in tho house, but I might have known that you would no more think of those lem ons than you thought of the pineapplo I told you to get one day last week, and I’d depended on tho pineapple to slico for tea, just as I’ve depended on thi lemons to make lemonade for tea tbi t evening. "And here I’ve gone and told the children that we’d havo lemonade for tea, and now 1 can’t keep my word to them because—what? You can go out to the comer and get half a dozen? Yes, and pay at least 3 and maybe 4 cent: 1 dozen more than they cost in the city. No, I thank you, we’ve no money *<j throw away like that. We’ll go wi i out lemons tonight and I’ll go into t' e city tomorrow and get some myself. It’s what I have to do if I really wu t anything because my husband—win: ? You tell your own wife to ‘shut up?’ I thought I’d married a gentleman, but I find out that I am very much mistaken. A man who will tell his own wife to — that’s right, bang the door! Dear me, dear me! What we wives have to put up with is more than half tho worl 1 dreams of. ” —New York Sunday World.

I saw you out walking with a very fine looking gentlo man last evening. Is he your papa? Little Girl—Yes, sir, and ho’s ono of the nicest papas lever had.—New York Weekly. A College Training. Home from college came the stripling, calm and cool and debonair, With a weird array of raiment and a wondrorg wealth of hair. With a lazy love of languor and a healthy ha<© of work And a cigarette devotion that would shan.e the turbaned Turk. And he called his father “guv'nor," with a cheek serene and rude, While that raging, wrathful rustic called h'.a son a “blasted dude” And in dark and direful language muttered threats of coming harm To the “idle, shifTess critter” from his fa ther’s good right arm. And the trouble reached a climax on the law a behind the shed. ‘Now I’m goin ter lick yer, sonny,” so the sturdy parent said, “And I’ll knock the college nonsense won your noddle mighty quick.” Then he lit upon that chappy like a wagon load of brick. But the youth serenely murmured as he grip ped his angry dad, ‘You’re a clever rusher, guv’nor, but yon tackle very bad.” And he rushed him through the center, an l he tripped him for a fall, And he scored a goal and touchdown with hi3 papa as the ball Then a cigarette he lighted as he slowly strolled away, Saying, “That was jolly, guv’nor; now we’ll practice every day,” While his father from the puddle, where h3 wallowed in disgrace, Smiled upon his offspring proudly from a bruised and battered face, And, with difficulty rising, quick he hobbled to the house. “Henry’s all right, ma,” he shouted to hi* anxious, waiting spouse. “He jest licked me good and solid, and I tell yer, Mary Ann, When a chap kin lick your husband he’s mighty able man.” —Joe Lincoln in L. A. W. Bulletin.
