THE LOCAL MOTION A The town folks have been in terested in a local moving stunt that is being pulled off this week under the supervision of the Cal lahan Theater. A contest of some spirit decided .that Miss Catherine Chestnut should be leading lady and the Rt. Hon. Quim Melton should officiate as best man. The fire wagon took a run, Judge Bryan pulled a stunt or two and various other matters of local interest were gotten in the picture. The young ladies that were in the cast were all rigged out in the usual regalia and it is already admitted that for good looks the Bainbridge girls have the whole section backed off the board. The picture will be shown here about ten days from now and considerable interest will be manifested in their exhibition. MR. AND MRS. PATTERSON TO LEAVE FOR WASHINGTON GOOD FARMING LAND AT MODERATE PRICES Prospective Buyers Afforded Every Opportunity for Investigation. One of the most frequently: counties more thickely settled, asked questions is, “What is the price of your land?” In the case of Decatur County the answer is that it depends altogether upon quality and location. One can get good land for $10 an acre that will yield a handsome return by proper cultivation, but it is not within reason to expect in this day and time, that at such a figure the land will in clude modern improvements and close accessibility to railroads. But at that $15 to 830 per acre high-grade land, with good clay subsoil, close, to main roads and within reach of one or two rail roads and river, can be obtained in almost any quanity. As yet there is a scarcity of of small farm tracts, but some of the larger land owners pre- would bring twice or ^ three times these figures. Persons interested are asked to write to those mentioned on the page for complete informa tion. They will at once be put in touch with the owners direct ly, or with responsible local real estate agents. Decatur county asks investi gation. In these days of land booms and glowing advertise ments much harm has been done districts looking for legitimate exploitation through methods employed by the unscrupulious dealers and promoters. It is said pridefully that none of these are found in Decatur county. Every proper effort is made to secure desirable farmers, but misrepre sentation is steadfastly frowned Lands here will bear , . 7 . (Upon. Lands here will bear pared to cut up their holdings to[ cloge examination, and such in- suit tenants. This land, that is, 'spection is asked as well as ex- land of similar fertility in thejpected. Mr. and Mrs. L. F. Patterson have leased their home to Mr. Doland of Pittsburg for two years, and expect to leave soon for Washington, D. C. where they expect to make their home with Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Tiller. Mrs. Patterson was born here. Mr. Patterson moved here thirty nine years ago, and it is with re gret to their many friends they are moving so far away. Mr. Paterson has been a prominent man in the Democratic party was member of the city Council twenty years, Sheriff a number of years and served a time in the State Senate. He was in the Brick business until a few years ago when he retired. We wish them both much happiness in their new home. black gown SOW frock CITY COURT IN SESSION The City court convened Mon day morning with Judge Spooner on the bench and Solicitor O’Neal in charge of the state’s interest. The work of the court was gotten right into from the start and quite a number of criminal cases were disposed of. The docket is in good shape and has been kept that way for several years past and the work of the court this session will not be so heavy. and yellow roses were festooned from the center to the four com ers of the room. Yellow tulle streamers were suspended from the chandelier and fastened to the sides of the table with love knots of tulle. A handsome doth ofcluny lacy over yellow satm covered the table and a large vase of white sweet peas graced the center. Silver candelabra with yellow shaded lights and silver bon bon dishes containing yellow mints and confections decorated the table. One hundred and fifty guests were present. NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS We wish to give our advertisers the very best possible service and we earnestly ask them not to wait until press hour to give ub their advertisements. We cant get the ads up in good shape, we cant give them good position and it is about as useless a proposition as one can follow is to wait until the last minute and expect an ad to get results that is just thrown together any kind of way to get it in the paper. The paper comes out Thursday noon and all adver tisers should have their copy in not later than Tuesday night and we can give them such position that they will get good results. We have been obliged to turn down advertisements this week because of their eleventh hour coming in. Give us the copy in plenty of time and we can please you. Wait until the’ last minute and you have to take what is left and you are not satisfied but still at the same time you have no one to blame but yourself. Give us the matter right and let us sell your goods for you. SCHOOL CONTEST On the evening of Thursday March 30, at 8:15 at the School Auditorium, will be held the re gular annual contest in the Music and Expression depart ments. The student who is judged the winner in each de partment will have the privilege of representing Bainbridge at the District Contest at Sylvester April 13th, and 14th. SOME CLIMATE HERE The following item from the Atlanta Constitution of February 28th, 1914 telling of the grass mowing in Bainbridge, is so re cent as to be well remembered. A fearful blizzard, the worst since 1888, swept all of the East. Even Georgia suffered, now ap pearing as far down as Savannah while sleet was seen in Albany. But Decatur County, warmed by Gulf breezes, was so blessed as to escape all but a light frost that nipped only the tenderest vegetation. The article follows: WHILE REST OF GEORGIA SHIVERED, GRASS-CUTT ERS BUSY IN BAINBRIDGE Bainbridge, Ga., Feb. 27 (Special).—The snow failed to reach Bainbridge this trip and though several persons declare they saw light flakes falling in the afternoon. Yesterday was chosen as grass cutting day in Cannon Park, and the 1 Chief of Police, who is in charge of the Parks, took advantage of the beautiful clear weather to have his mowers at work. Owing to the mildness of the winter, the grass is especially luxuriant this year, and the Northern visitors have been commenting on the sight of mowers at work while the State in under a blanket of snow. The Ladies Shop is meant for ladies it is said and it is a very noticeable tact that the ladies from all over the county are taking advantage of it. The store was filled Saturday with visiting ladies from all over the AT The boys of the town have been working on the baseball proposition and it is now thought that we will have a good team this' summer. The boys are afraic} that Quincy and a few outlying villages will spoil if they don’t get up a team and ease down there for a few days at any hazard. Now Quincy has been known to have a real good team several times and the Bain bridge boys are hoping that they will be ace high this sum mer. It is in air and the kids are all jumping around like toad frogs. Baseball is what they want and baseball is what they will have. Let ’er rip, every body is ready. The same bug bit the whole business about the some time. ENTIRE TOWN OF HAVANA DESTROYED BY FIRE The town of Havana was literaly wiped out last Thursday night by fire. It was one of the most disastrous blazes that has swept over this section in many years and the town was almost burned entirely out. Only two of stores and the depot were left in the entire business portion of the little city. The store and residence of Mrs. Horne was burned earlier in the night and after all had went home and retired again the second blaze was discovered in the back of some of the stores. This blaze got beyond control and in a short while the plucky little towto was all ashes. About 23 buildings were destroyed and they were all in the business portion of the town. The hotel, O. P.

The people of the town were badly discouraged but they will get right down to work and build up their little city as soon as the work can be done. BAINBRIDGE HOTELS Bainbridge has hotels well worth boasting of. The tourist who visits this city finds it an easy matter to get accomodations that please. This is an ideal tourist point and yearly the number of visitors who spend the winter months in Bainbridge is increasing. Excellent hunting and fishing here guarantee the tourist a good time in old Decatur county. JUDGE LANE IN CHICAGO The friends of Judge Wilfred C. Lane, who was refreree in bankruptcy of this district up to 1912, and who presided here in the famous Oliver case, and others of more or less note, will be pleased to know that after his resignation of this office and pursuing a lucrative practive in De Moins, Iowa, he is now located in Chicago, where he is specializing in Patent law and Bankrupty litigation. Judge Lane made many warm friends •here who will be gratified to learn of his success.
