NOTICE—The meeting indi cated by this program is an in terdenominational meeting and every worker in every white Sunday School in Forsyth Coun ty is urgently requested to at tend. The Forsyth County Sun day School Association is auxi liary to the Georgia Sunday School Association, whieh is a co-operative effort on the part of all denominations to improve Sunday School conditions and Sunday School workers. It ad vocates the latest and best meth ods of Sunday School work and stands only for those interests that are common to Sunday Schools of all denominations. The plans and methods sugges ted by this Association are prac ticable for all Sunday Schools, as they do not touch on Church doctrines. The work is by way of suggestion, not by authority; therefore, it helps many, it hin ders none. The object is help ful and brotherly co-operation, not organic union. The officers of the Association are leading Christian business men of all evangelical denominations. T. F. DAVIS County President. E. F.

Keeping Sweet Potatoes Editor: I see so n.any nice sv'eet potato patches in Forsyth county and hear so many com plaints on keeping them, I thought I might give some points that might be helpful to some. To keep sweet potatoes in good condition they must be well matured, carefully hand led, well dryed or cured after being put in the house, and kept at a uniform temperature after they are cured. To tell when they are ripe cut one in the patch if they dry quick they are ready to gather, if watery they are two green. If possible they should be gath ered before heavy frost, and ground is dry. After they are cured properly cover with dry chaff, pine straw or forest leaves, deep enough to keep at uniform temperature. There is no econemy in hilling up in the field, better put them in a house where you can keep them from rotting, and get to them to use any time you want them. For any information on build ings call on me at my office on Saturdays’, Yours to serve, S. J. Smith, County Agent. Teacher’* Institute The teachers Institute of For syth county will be held in Cum ming, Aug. 30, 31, and Sept. Ist. All teachers are requested to attend and bring as many of your advanced pupils as will come. Respectfully, A. C. Kennemore. 75c per year. Some Gravity to This Gas Our friend, ire Constitution, has many reporters on their staff, but we venture the asser tion that Bro. Walter Cham bers is a “star” among them when it comes t-j dishing out gas. Some weeks ago the sheriff of this county captured a fine Cad ilac automobile, together with about 80 gallons of whiskey. Saturday af.crnom i is car was dir.en to Atlanta by two dep uty sheriffs, and was there taken charge of by parties in the city under bail trover pro ceedings. This the Constitution’s corres pondent taks advantage of for a sarcastic article against the officers in this county. They state that C. W. Garr, loaned this car to a party for a trip to Chattanooga. We call the attention of this paper to the fact that this was an error. The party had been to the moun tains of north Georgia and had procured some eighty gallons of juice and were returning to the Gate City with it. If they had been going to Chattanooga this county would have been considerably an out of the way route. They state that there were three deputy sheriffs with the car. We suppose Corbin Brady was one of ’em, and Keeler Ben nett the other two. They go and say that the party spent all their money tak ing in the sights of the city. All these people had been to Atlan ta before, and knew more about their city than Bro. Chambers knows about the real conditions under which the said car was captured. In fact, a deputy sheriff w r ho has the nerve to try to route the whiskey gang in Atlanta, would have plenty of nerve to secure a loan in that city, and any of these men in the party could have borrowed money with which to come home on, if they had wanted it. They would have enough to call on the Sal vation Army for the money rath er than do without if they need ed it. We venture the assertion that you could take the engine and gasoline tank out of the fine Cadillac car, stick Bro. Cham bers in their stead, and run to New York and return over the national highway, and when it got back, you couldn’t miss the gas used on the trip. This won’t work on a Ford however, Oh, no. A Ford is a light car and the gas would be of too high gravity for the Ford to stand the pressure. DAVES CREEK The school at this place clos ed Saturday. The children re ceived a nice treat. We are sorry to report that Miss Nona Hall is confined to her bed with typhoid fever. Hope for her a speedy recovery Mr. and Mrs. E. O. Hall vis ited the formers parents, Mr. John Hall Tuesday. Mrs. Patsy Buice is visiting her daughter Mrs. Berry Gil bert. Mrs. John Hudson and son Willie, has returned home after a pleasant visit to her father, Mr. George Waters near Bir mingham. For Sale or Rent I have for sale or rent a nice home in the town of Cumming, with good conveniences. Call to see me. R. E. Hope.
