Dr. H. M. Fugate Delivered Memorial
Address.—Under Auspices of the
Under the auspices of the Parent-
Teacher Association a large crowd of
representative Barrow county citizens
I gathered in the school auditorium last
Tuesday to celebrate Memorial Day.
The large auditorium was filled tp
overflowing with the old soldiers, cit
izens and school children.
The stage was beautifully decorated
with flowers appropriate for the occa
Dr. H. M. Fugate, pastor of the Tat
ial Square Baptist church, delivered the
address of the morning and with his
incisive logic and splendid eloquence
paid glowing tribute to the memory
of the Confederate heroes and the
matchless service they rendered human
ity and the noble ideals they fostered.
He spoke of the rich heritage they had
left their children and grand children,
and of the noble men who fought in the
recent world war, stressing the im-
J portance of being fair in our dealings,
with colored race and observing the
laws of the land.
The speaker was introduced by Rev.
S. K. Grubb, after fitting songs by the
school. Dr. Fugate is a Virginian, a
graduate of the famous Virginia Mili
tary Institute at Lexington, the son of
a Confederate veteran, and the large
throng who listened to his address was
pleased beyond measure with the ora
ator of the day.
Little Miss Pauline Roberts sung a
solo and the audience was dismissed
with prayer by Rev. L. Wilkie Collins,
j Some twenty of the Confederate vet-
Uthus were present and their many
; friends rejoiced to see them in good
health and delighted to honor them in
this occasion. They are fast growing
fewer and feebler.
I Mr. Carl Fagan Suffers
Mr. Carl Fagan happened to a pain
ful and serious misfortune last week.
He was handling a dynamite cap think
ing it was an old cartridge hull, and it
exploded tearing the thumb and two
lingers off his left hand. The wound
was quickly dressed and we are glad to
know that Mr. Fagan is getting along
very well. His many friends in the
city sympathize with him in his mis
fortune. He was working with Wat
son, Glover & Cos., and will be absent
from his post quite a while.
Mr. £. F. Smith brought to our office
Tuesday morning a bunch of unusually
fine cherries that were fully ripe and
as delicious as any we have ever eaten.
They were large and luscious. Mr.
Smith brought this tree when only a
small twig from Oconee county, and it
lias proven an unusually fine cherry.
He has named it the “Princess,” and
will propagate from this tree in time
to put on the market next year. This
tree is growing on Mr. June Jackson’s
lot, and is full of ripe cherries now.
These are the earliest cherries we have
ever heard of.

the officials of the Fifth District A. &
M. School, near Monroe, and Tech High
School of Atlanta, to have one of the

The A. & M. team is coached by Claud
Satterfield, former University of Geor
gia star, and a strong contender for
the championship of the G. I. A. A.,

if it is well attended Winder stands
a good chance of getting other league
games later on. Let’s turn out and
give the boys a good crowd. Game

On February sth, 1920, Mrs. G. H.
Fortson received her appointment from
Washington, 1). C., to organize a D. A
R. Chapter in Winder.
Not knowing all eligible members it
required weeks to find twelve members,

tion the Suubury Chapter was not of
ficially jrecognized until April 16th,
1921. In the meantime, however, the
eligible members gave a splendid pro
gram at the school building in commem

It is the aim of the Sunbury Chapter
to fill its place acceptably in the ranks
of D. A. R. workers and to ever live
worthy of our ancestors who counted
no sacrifice too great, if it attained
Liberty and Independence.
A “Daughter of the American Rev
olution” Ims attained the highest hon
or ever conferred by any society or or
ganization because indisputable records
proved her descended from an Ameri
can Patriot. It is a title that can not
he purchased. The only way it is at
tained must he that you have the blood
of an American Patriot coursing thru
The emblem of the society is the
American Flag and each member
pledges allegiance to the flag and the
republic for which it stands, one na
tion indivisible, with Liberty and Jus
tice for all.—Chapter Member.

OF GREAT PICTURE
On Account of Some Objections Private
Showing Arranged Monthly for
“Dead Men Tell No Tales.”
The picture “Dead Men Tell No
Tales,” which is booked for The Strand
Theater Thursday and Friday of thiN
week, was given a private showing on
Monday. Some little objection has
arisen possibly on account of the title
which has been seen on every hand for
Ihe past month, of the advisability of
permitting this picture to be shown,
many people calling at this office aud
we understand some few called upon
the Mayor for information regarding
this picture. For these reasons Man
ager Ixive of the Strand had the plct-
ure shipped out and on Monday noti
fied the mayor and city reviewers to
attend a private showing of the film.
A representative of The News was
'invited to be present and witness the
showing and was present.
AVe admit that "Dead Men Tell No
Tales” is one of the most thrilling and
spectacular productions ever transferr
ed to celluloid, yet there is nothing to
shock the modesty of the most fastidl
oiis. most stories the big
thrills are in the first scenes The pic
ture was made at Oakdale, L. I. There
buried in the woods is an ancient an
cestral home, surrounded by an estate
of about three thousand acres of pine
woods and firs.
The mansion which hus more than
a hundred rooms, was built fifty years
ago, aiul modeled English Style. The
owner to satisfy the whips of a wom
an traveled the whole of Europe col
lecting antiques and marvelous wood
carvings from the palaces of Italy
and the chateau of France to ftix the
interiors in proper style.
The palace although having cost $3,-
000.000.00, almost immediately was de
serted. The woman jilted the owner
and he shot himself in one of the bed
rooms. No one ever -d there.lt is
presumed to be haunted.
One of the four villians has a re
deeming feature. This man, an impov
erished English squire, never approves
the “dead men tell no tales, doctrine.
The picture play will arouse some sym
pathy for John Rattray, and he is
permitted to make his escape, while
his associates jn crime are killed.
SNOW IN APRIL 1910.
Last Tuesday morning. Memorial
Day, while we were standing in front

that day a good snow fell in this sec
tion. This was April 26, 1910, and con
ditions were just abut as favorable for
a crop as they are this year. A fairly
good crop was made that year.

WATSOVGLOVER & CO.
The News made an error in the ad
vertisement of the above firm in it|
issue of last week. We stated that
they were selling Pink Lady flour fot
$2.25 per 50 pounds and it should have
been $2.55. We do not know how this
error slipped in unless it was because
they are selling everything so cheap
that we just put ir down that way.
Anywny they are selling flour mighty
cheap and the people are buying it to
beat the baud.
Willie (T.) Pendergrass, who is a
member of the News force when not in
