Thanksgiving Da .
And a N ” • i! holiday
The niinrod spoils arts in the fields
The football season officially comes
to a close today.
Rain has fallen in Southwest Geor
gia during the past week, the first
since October 20th.
Might we suggest to the business
men of Blakely that you do your
Christmas advertising early?
The nation mourns the death of
Mrs. Warren (!. Harding, former
first lady of the land, w! o passed
awny Friday -following a long illness.
We have much to be thankful for
on this Thanksgiving Day. No na
tion in the history of the world has
ever been blessed in so many ways
as has this native land of ours.
Thanks to an Almighty Providence

The News is coming out several
hours ahead of schedule this week
in order that the ‘‘force” might en
joy at. least a part of the National
Thanksgiving holiday. We have made
no special efforts at news gathering,
and ask the indulgence of our read
ers in' the shortcomings ot' this edi
Our little city has gained the tin
s ■ ory reputation of being a little
' Id iu its niglit life, and conduct
i übecoming iO citizenry has been
noted in some instances of late,
which were due perhaps to an over
dose of “white lightning.” The fair
name ot our town should not I>3
blighted with disturbances of this
kind, and it is hoped that the guilty
ones might be brought to a swift
realization that the majesty of the
law' must at least be respected.
The News is making an important |i
announcement in its advertising col-]'
umns this week regarding the sub j
script ion price of this paper. For aj;
period of one month’s time, Novem- j
ber 27th to December 24th, we arc J
making a special price of SI.OO for |
a year’s subscription, this applying j
to both old and new subscribers. This
price concession is merely for the j
purpose of increasing our subscrip- •
tion list and is an effort to put “the j
home paper in every home," and is
in no way to be regarded as a re
duction in subscription price, for at
the end of the time above stated the
paper will revert to its present rate,
$1,50 per year
