Mr. Borland had been a sufferer for
the last two years, and In December he
entered a sanitarium in Atlanta, from
which he returned a few weeks ago,
apparently greatly Improved. A week
ago he was taken ill again, and it
was soon seen that the end was near.
On the first page of today3 ls3ue
will be found the copy of an ordinance
now before the city council. It will be
observed by the reader that this1 or ordinance
dinance ordinance proposes that the city surren surrender
der surrender certain of Its streets In perpetuity
to the Atlantic Coast Line. It will also
be observed that the TaiIroa4 does not
offer to pay the city a cent ln return
for the concession. 1
It is true that the railroad', offers to
build a large and up-to-date freight
depot, and remove its present frame
shanty out of Osceola avenue, but why
should it not do this anyhow, and why
should our little city, which with
" economy and good "management tiever
has money enough for its needs,glve
any of Its territory without a cent of
remuneration to a great railway tor
poratlon, whose tracks gridiron half a
dozen states, and whose profits every
year more than equal the tax valuation
It is also true that a new depot is
much needed, and that the old one
should be removed from the street, but
the railroad needs the new structure
for its business more than the city
does, and the old one is where it is
only on sufferance. If your neighbor
proposed to you that he would build a
new barn on his own land, provided
you gave him the exclusive use of a
road to it over your own, the proposi
tion would be Just about the game as
the one the Coast Line has made to
The Atlantic Coast Line owns in the
southern end of the city most of the
ground from South Eighth between
Osceola avenue and Main street, about
five acres. It al3o owns the old
Elchelberger place south of South
Eighth street a tract of about eight-
n acres, thru which there are no
The railroad yard as now situated in
the northern five acres is right in the
way of the growth of the city. It Is
between two sections that on account
of the location of the school houses al already
ready already have much need of unobstructed
communication, and the need Is in increasing
creasing increasing daily. What it will be ten,
or five years from now. Is easy to
imagine. To surrender the streets on
any terms would be folly; to surrender
them without pay would be a crime.
South Eighth street, well situated,
recently hardened, with new residences
constantly going up, and already
among our most pleasant auto drives,
Is a most Important thoroughfare.. If
the railroad yard remains where it is.
It will only be a matter of time before
it has to be lengthened to the south,
and then there will be a solid wedge
driven up Into one of the be3t residence
sections of the city.
The proper thing for the railroad to
do Is to build its new depot on and to
move its yard to Its own land south of
South Eighth street. If it does this, it

We are told that Thomas was the
first backslider after the resurrection.
He had missed a service, and the next
time he went he was so full of doubt,
that nothing but an ocular demonstra demonstration
tion demonstration would satisfy him that Jesus had
been raised from the dead. The ac account
count account does not say why he missed the
service. It might have been due to his
desire to spend the .Sabbath afternoon
out in the woods in "communion with
nature," and when he got back he was
"too tired" to go out. Or. he might
have been engaged with some "mer "mercantile
cantile "mercantile plans" for the new week, or, he
might have found it "necessary" to
scan the "daily papers," or he might
have been afraid of the "night air," or
it might have been cloudy, with a little
rain, and "threatening." Or he might
have been "fishing" that day, or pos
sibly had over exercised himself at his
Sunday dinner," or, been up "too
late" the night before, or he might
have had a "golf" engagement. At
any rate, he missed the service, fell
into doubt, and has become typical of
"doubting Thomases" through all the
centuries. Furthermore folks are still
staying away, and still backsliding, and
still losing the blessed fellowship of
service. The moral we wish to point
is this: no man or woman, not prov providentially
identially providentially hindered can miss the re revival

to themselves and injury to the cause

Only a few days remained before the
primaries. During the two terms of
office John had acquitted himself with
skill aud fidelity. Fe.'.r.of him had
doubtless restrained the midline from
many characteristic depredations, but
victory was well nigh hopeless. He had
become a candidate again only that the
fight might go on. in the faint hope that
something might occur to turn the tide

foreseen he would carry the townships

"At any rate," remarked Criswell, at
the close of the discussion, "ye've had
six years of good flghtin'."
"I guess," said Cranshawe kindly,
I "ye think it hasn't paid. In one way
