Two Kinds of Com That
Once Grew In Georgi
.1 ra wu noted for bis wit and the
w ability of always having a better
tory ready tiiau any "whopper" be
might be told by a friend. The year
1818 was an exceptionally dry season
In Georgia, and corn did not mature
at all In many portions of the state.
"I bare got the corn. Judge Dooly,
mac win stand tnis drought or any
ttber one." said Austin Edwards one
day while they were discussing the
poor crops. "I got it from a Tennes
see cnttleman and plunted a piece of
K In my garden. It came up lu about
week, and every stalk bad six large
ears, and banging to the tassel was
nice little gourd full of shelled corn.
It beats the Dutch, Judge. Did you
ever bear of anything like that?"
The Judge listened with great grav
Ity and when be bad finished said
"Why. Mr. Austin, that Isn't a shade
to the corn made by Tom Haynes of
Hancock county. I was at court there
last week and stayed with Tom. He
bad Just finished gathering in a piece
of lew swamp land which he cleared
last year. Do you know It never rain
ted on that piece of land at all, and
Tom didn't expect there was going to
be any corn, so he turned bis hogs In
to eat up the dry stalks. The hogs did
not come back as usual the next morn
Ing, so be went to look after them.
What was bis surprise to And one of
tbem with a large ear of corn in her
mouth. He could not Imagine where It
came from, but on examination found
that she had rooted it up from the foot
of a dried cornstalk. He looked
other cornstalks and found that on the
roots of all of them there were from
Ave to ten large ears of corn. Then be
bad his field dug up and gathered the
best crop be ever had."
"Well, well!" said Austin. "That
beats my corn. I must have some of
that seed." St Louis Republic.
He Got Off Eay.
An eiaeriy darky in Georgia was
charged with the theft of some chick

be defended by a young and Inexpe
rienced attorney, although It Is doubt
ful whether any one could have secur
ed bis acquittal, the commission of the
crime having been proved beyond all
The prisoner received a pretty severe
sentence. "Thank you, sab," said he
cheerfully, addressing the Judge when
the sentence had benn announced

anywhere near what I expected.

Sending truth after a He. It Is an old
maxim that "a lie will travel seven
leagues while truth is getting its boots
on," and no doubt hundreds of thoiiKnnds
of good people read the unwarranted and
malicious attack upon Dr. R. V. Pierce
and hisTavorite Prescription "published
in the May (1904) number of the Ladies'
Home Journal, with its great black dis
play headings, who never saw the hum
ble, groveling retraction, with Its Incon
spicuous heading, published two months
later. It was boldly charged In the sland
erous and libelous article that Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription, for the pure of
woman's weaknesses and ailments, con
talned alcohol and other harmful Ingredi
ents. Dr. Pierce promptly brought suit
agalrtst the publishers of the Ladies'
Home Journal, for 1200,000,00 damages.
Dr. Pierce alleged that Mr. Bok, .the
editor, maliciously published the article
containing such false and defamatory
matter wltjf the Intent of Injuring hit
businesiffurthermore, that no alcohol, or
other fujuriou. or habit-forming, drugs

rendered a verdict In the Doctor's favor.
