Thk Atlanta Journal issued a very
creditable special edition in honor of
the Masonic celebration in that city.

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

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.

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.
Full sized packages may be found at
all druggists at 50 cents, or sent by

SOMETHING NEW.
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

HENRY AND THE LEMONS.
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,

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.
