Address By Dr. O. C. Jones.
Tuesday night Dr. O. C. Jones a rep
resentative of the Anti-Saloon League,
delivered a splendid lecture at the
court house on prohibition. He showed
the beginning of this organization,
what persistent opposition it has met
at every point and the wonderful
achievements it has brought about with
the aid of similar bodies. Of the forty
eight states all but three have voted
for an amendment to the national con
stitution prohibiting the making and
sale of liquors. He declared that the
great work now is to enforce the law.
That the liquor interests and those
who insist on having it will use every
effort and spend millions of money to
obstruct and hinder the law.
Dr. Jones is an able and eloquent
speaker and we wish every man, wo
man and child in the eountty could
have heard him.

SPLENDID CITIZEN AND
FRIEND HAS PASSED AWAY
ENTIRE COUNTY MOURNS DEATH
OF WM. J. WREN WHICH OC
When the news passed over the
county Saturday morning stating that
Mr. W. J. Wren was dead, all were
surprised and grieved. No one had
heard he was sick, and he was not, and
his very sudden and unexpected death
came as a shock out of a clear sky. lie
was in his sixty-first year and was the
last survivor of a family of several
children. The last days of his life
were as full of activity and energy
as any he ever spent and when he re
tired the last night he seemed in usual
health. The noise of heavy breathing
awoke loved ones, but he quickly pass
ed away without uttering a word of
Mr. Wren lead a most active life and
was connected with so many enterpris
es that touched a very large number of
the people of the county all knew him
personally or had heard of him. For
many years he was the leading mer
chant of the upper part of the county.
All remember the firm of Wren and
Phillips. Theirs was the first store in
Wrens. And they gave every patron
the fairest and squarest treatment. The
bank, the oil mill, the ginnery, the big
flour mills and every other enterprise
had his strong, wise and energetic sup
port. In fact we would not be ex
travagant in saying he was the founder
and builder of that growing and pros
perous town that bears his name. Te
church bad no stronger support, and
his influence was always for righteous
ness, temperance and good citizenship.
He was a loyal and staunch supporter
of the Presbyterian church, of which
he was always the leading member and
helper. His influence was always for
the right. No one ever doubted how
he stood on moral issues. lie always
spoke, worked and prayed for right and
Mr. Wren held several offices of pub
lic trust. He served as state senator,
was a member of the board of roads
and revenues, was a member of the
board of education, often foreman of
the jury and held office in his
town many years. In fact for many
years he was one of the leading spirits
of our county and he was the foremost
citizen of his town during all of its
history. In his death the county loses
one of its best and most influential
men; his town its founder and foremost
citizen and his church a devoted am
most helpful member.
His home life was tender and beaut ;
fill, and all who entered his home wer
charmed with the love that centered ii
every word and act. It could not b<
otherwise, for it was a Christian home

incident was the large number of col

his good and helpful life.

The very pleasant Easter cus
tom of sending Easter cards to
our friends or* of making them
simple and inexpensive gifts is
a good one, provided we do not
carry it to an extreme. The
springtime is a busy season
when every one is weeding out
one’s possessions rather than
seeking to add to them; hence
numerous large gifts would
prove a burden to the recipient.
Eggs have always been associ
ated with the day as symbolic
of the resurrection. Bonbon
nieres of this shape or candy
eggs are always popular.
Flowers and growing plants
are especially appropriate to
the day, Easter lilies being al
ways in demand. A corsage
bouquet of violets or of lilies
of the valley is a pretty gift to
a girl. The man who makes
it must be careful to have it
sent to the house of the girl in
time for her to wear to church
on Easter morning. Neckties
or scarfs are suitable gifts to
make to a man who is a rela
tive or friend, provided one
knows his tastes. Florence

at Farmers. Grove to have a closing of
their school. Everything moved along
well until someone arrived with some

turmoil and shooting. A good many
shots were tired, and James Mitchell
received a bad wound in the hip. He
is now in the hospital in Sandersville.

with shooting at Mitchell. A warrant

ter a stay of only two weekb his once
strong and vigoious body yielded to

NO NEED OF RUSHING TO THE
CITIES WHEN YOU WANT BEST

We have never understood why some
people in our county go to Augusta and

when there 'are so many up-to-thel

county conducted by their friends and
With a large number of wide awake
merchants in our county and carrying
everything in stock for the comfort
of the human body as well as pleas

fastidious woman or the most critical
and discriminating man impels us
to repeat that we do not understand
why people should go elsewhere to
trade. We know that for vears the
German business houses carr. u a
business propaganda, and by ay,
it was so thoroughly successful that
up to 1014 when the world war broke
out, the most of us felt that no article
of merchandise was genuine, or to say
the least of it was not the best of its
kind unless it had stamped on it the
words: “Made In Germany,” and
American made goods that were better
in texture, fabric and workmanship
were left on the shelves. The mer
chandise of Jefferson county is the equal
in fineness and quality of that of Augus
ta and Macon, if not in quantity, and
buyers sometime get goods for more
money and of less value and worth from
those places than they could get from
the home merchant.
After more or less thought on the
matter we have come to the conclusion
that the reason is sired by a lingering
j sentiment of “Made in Germany” and
damned by an inflated ego, a feeling
that the article from abroad is the
The same people who feel that the
merchants of our county are not as
progressive, live and wide awake as
merchants of other counties would feel
that our merchants were unpatriotic,
and devoid of county pride if they re

sions and lines of business and went
elsewhere for service.
We think Jefferson county and her
business houses are good enough for
anybody, and when we change that op
inion we think it will be time to look
for anew pasture and we will.

the dead rebel chief.

death of Zapata was brought about

The rebel chief is said to have been
killed in an unnamed part of the moun

colonel to a generalship for his feat.
At the height of his power several
years ago General Zapata figured as the
