Mr. B. B. Cheek. Traffic Manager of
the Gainesville Midland railroad, is op
timistic in lis antcpation of improve
ment in the serious situation facing the
road at this time. He says we cannot
and must not and will not fail, having
utmost confidence in the ability and wil
lingness of tin) employees, together
with the full co-operation of the pat
rons all along the line to immediately
bring about a decisive change in the
There has been, as you must know,
a sort of luke-warm feeling with both
employees and patrons as to condi
tions, which the Receivership has dis
pelled. In other words, we have been
awakened to the true state of affairs,
and the possibility of not being able to
continue operation, which enables us
all to see and work together in such a
way as the best possible results must
He states that there isn’t- asy ques
tion but that the situation is serious,
and that operation may be discontinu
ed if the employees do not shoulder
their part of the burden, and the pat
rons do not stand by the road, and give
thMr full support. He is not inclined
on the dark side of the situa
tion, and feels that every man with
the road feels the same way, and that
the situation will he worked out. He
anticipates that a very strong effort
will be made to show Mr. Baldwin and
the management that recent conditions
can be overcome, and that the patrons
of the road interested all along the
line, taking very special pains to see
that- traffic is specifically routed and
requests respected, will be done.
He is very gratified at the interest
already manifested along the road, and
believes it will develop into a real ben
efit, as a realization of the possibility
to discontinue the road would be a
tremendous drawback and misfortune
to this entire section. Every effort,
he states, is going to be made to pre

A Burlesque Entertiaiunent at School
Auditorium Tonight, Benefit of
Winder Baseball Club.
At the school auditorium tonight
(Thursday) will be given the amusing
and laughable entertainment that haw
never been given in this city. Thirty
of Winder’s business men and women
take part. Truly this is one of the
most entertaining plays ever put on the
stage. It is called a “scream.”
You just ought to see Joe Parham
and Jule Wilson as bawling, squalling,
crying babies, fighting and scrapping
over their nursing bottles.
Judge Johns as the deceased Mr. Par
ley, Mr. C. O. Niblack as the groom who
rolls his bride, Mrs. Reba Vonderleith,
in a primitive carriage—the wheelbar
row. are laughable in the extreme.
We haven’t room in this article to
mention (every! character —there are
thirty of Winder's men and women in
the play—and you just can’t afford to
The play is given for the benefit of
Winder's baseball club and is being
coached by Mrs. Fitzgerald, of Atlan
ta, which is a guarantee of its success.
Admission, adults 55 cents, school
children, 28 cents.
“Tony, the Convict,” to be given at
Southeasters Christian College by the
Dramatic Club Friday evening, March
4, promises to be one of the best
plays ever presented by students of S.
C. C. The public will remember the
high standard set by former plays giv
en by tile students. Most of the actors
in “Tony, The Convict" have appear
ed upon the stage at S. C. C before
and will be recognized by those who
have attended former entertainments.
The public is cordially invited to at
tend “Tony, the Convict.” Admission
will be 35c and 25c.
The sensational escape of the con
vict hi the first act is well acted by Mr.
Snipes. “Tony” is a strong, many
sided character. The villian, James
Barclay, is played by Mr. Wade Gar
The second act contains comedy, in
troduced by two tramps, and discloses
a secret which enables the vindictive
Mr. Barclay to lay plans to wifi Lena,
the lovely daughter of Judge Van
Cruger. “Lena" is a very emotional
part, well acted by Miss Ruby Bridges,
“The Judge” is played by Mr. T. O.
Slaughter, with Mrs. Rollin Garrett as
“Mrs. Van Cruger.” Professor Rollin
McPherson has the part of Irena's lov
More comedy is furnished by ser
vants and the old-maid in the third
act. Prof, and Mrs. J. L. Allgood and
Miss Helen Blanton get in some good
acting here. But this act also has a
good deal of pathos. The plans of
Barclay begin to fork out, the lovers
are separated, and Lena torn awa.v
from her home and parents.
“Lena’s” best scene, perhaps is in
the fourth act. Her father’s humble
home is in sharp contrast to the lux
urious one she has been brought away
from. The villian meets a master and
a fathei* saves his child.
“Barclay” plays his highest card in
the fifth act, 'and Lena resolves to sar
rifice herself for the Judge. This is
prevented by the return of the con
vict and the detective. Barclay is ar
rested, and Tony, the convict, comes
into his own.

Mr. G. W. Summerour is Arranging to
Build Large Sweet Potato Curing
House for Minder.
The News is glad to state that Win
der is to have another enterprise that
will mean much to this city and sur
rounding section. Mr. G. W. Stimmer
our has definitely decided to build a
large sweet potato curing plant in this
city and to have it ready by the time
this year’s crop is harvested. He will
be in shape to either buy all the sweet
potatoes that ure brought to this mar
ket or store them for those growers
who wish to hold. Sweet potatoes are
easily grown in the Winder territory
and they are a very profitable crop if
they can be kept and marketed along
through the year.
Mr. Summerour has a carload of
sweet potatoes on hand now that he pro
poses to sell to any who may want to
plant. He will also bed about 4(H)
bushels to supply plants to those who
do not buy the seed and bed for them
The Porto Rico variety is the only
kind that the market demands and
those who grow potatoes should plant
We are confident that Mr. Summerour
will find his venture a profitable one
and that the farmers will also profit
by his building the curing house.
