There is no question that the city ought to adopt some method that will turn the at tention of the farmers of the surrounding section in this dir ection. The best way to do this is is to offer them splendid values for their money. They are always on the look out to save an actual dollar and if they know that they can pick up certain splendid bargains in certain lines of merchandise dur ing the regular monthly trade cays they will begin to watch for them and be governed by them in their purchasing. It would cost the merchants very little to do this and if they will just dig they will have the trading public looking this way all summer and when fall comes on they will not have to do the work all over again. There is no question that this suggestion of Mr. Southwick is a good one and the business men will do well to look into it.

In concreate summary of the brilliant building campaign com pleted during the past twelve months Bainbridge now has to her civic pride and commercial credit an investment of ap proximately $250,000 in new homes, commercial plants, Federal and office buildings. However, large and favoring the amount invested in these new buildings, the advantage to the citv is augmented materially by the improved architectural plans and superior designs of the builders. Each commercial struc ture is a model of architectural skill combined with improved plans for advantageous manufac turing purposes, or other in dustrial use.

Board of Trade Notes PRETTY E AAENI The home of Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Curry was the scene of a most deligthful party for the younger set on Friday evening June 15th, when they entertained for their neices, Misses Jean Dickerson, of Bainbridge and Nomae Town send of Climax. The house was beautifully decorated with ferns and cut flowers, carrying out the color scheme of green and yellow. In the receiving line were Mrs- D. L. Curry, and her guests, Misses Jean Dickerson and No mae Townsend, Misses Blanche Mims and Mable Herring. After all the guests had ar rived some interesting games were introduced. The one that I afforded most amusement was I the photograph contest. The 1 prize was awarded to Mr. j Archie Curry and Miss Sadie Na- ; pier. Another was to answer a set of questions, the answer when solved disclosing names of flowers. The prize in this con test fell to Mr. Bert Carter and Miss Jean Dickerson. Refreshments, consisting ot ice cream and cake were served by Misses Sadie Napier, Maggie Curry and Olive Mize. Music on the piano was enjoyed throughout the evening. About thirty guests were present. Special monthly trade days for Bainbridge seem to be a certainly. The merchants and business men have reviewed and discussed this timely theme of commercial enterprise with much satisfaction to themselves. They affirm that it is the open door to extended trade relations and the creating of new accounts with customers or families living in adjoining counties. It means a larger annual volumn of busi ness and increased profit to the associated merchants. It also means a closer personal touch between the agricultural and mercantile interests; the farmer and the shopkeeper or banker, which fact is becoming more and more vital in successful trade relations. Still more immediate, special trade days established at once, will remove from the shelves thousands of dollars worth of goods now being carried over at a loss; goods which per haps have been on the shelves for indefinate periods and which figure large against the profits of the business. O ff e r e d at special prices this remnant stock could be cleared with advan tage to rural buyers and the cash invested in new goods for fall and witer trade. Especially is this true of bed sheeting and print material from which com forts and coverlets are made in rural homes. Summer is the season when the family bedding is replenished and reduction sales offer the occasion for advantage ous buying. Just now large or advantage ous monthly trade days might measure if well established is difficult to affirm; but once creat ed and enthusiastically carried out th.e personal, civic and com mercial advantage must be very considerable. Let these days be come once fixed in the minds of the people of surrounding towns and farming districts; let it be understood by them that not only special sales were on but special social attractions were staged for the day and at once it would become a habit with those people to come to Bainbridge. Those days would become public celebration days for rural lovers, sight seekers and Jrades people.
