small scale In earty life, they began
to put aside a part <e t their earnings.
Land back in those days was cheap.
Bye and bye they had accumulated a
sufficient sum to buy a farm of some
three hundred acres. On this farm
these hoys went to work ta real earnest
They farmed, they sawed lumber, they
ginned cotton, and threshed grain.
Then they bought more land. They
continued to work hard, and not waste
a dollar, and they bought more land,

of some of the choicest farming lands
in Jackson, Gwinnett and Barrow coun

our own business.” They have prac

Wliat is proving to be one of the
greatest revival meetings in the histo
ry of Winder is nearing its close at the
Rev. Charlie Tillman has held two
meetings previously in this city, eight
and thirteen years ago. These meet
ings are still remembered as an epoch
in the church life of our city, but the
present meeting, both in point of at
tendance and manifestation of spirit
ual power, is eclipsing them all.
Rarely has such music been heard as
is being sung under the leadership of
this golden-voiced singer, with the as
sistance of two pianos, and two splendid
choirs. The remarkable and unique
gospel messages are holding-spellbound
immense congregations, and are result
ing in conversions and new resolves

town. People have been in attendance
from as far as Commerce and Pender
grass, and the revival fires that have
been kindled here will spread through
out the county and statu*. It is not a
protracted meeting hut is proving to be
a rresli revival.
One of the great features of the meet
ing is fthe work that i* being done for
and thru the young people. There is a
large junior choir that is attending as
faithfully, and entering into the spirit
of tte* meeting as ranch as the adult
part -of the congregation. Those who
were part of that great audience who
at rented the children s service Monday
night, will not soon forget the scene
w’nir at the close, great crowds of cbll
dreu’-went to fathers, mothers, pastor or
teacher asking their help in leading a
Christian life. The song service at
this -meeting was unusually attractive.

P. Hudgins, two of Braselton’s most
progressive fnrmers, threshed their
wheat a few days ago. Mr. Braselton
made 362 bushels and Mr. Hudgins 85
bushels. This is a total of 447 bush
els off of two farms. This wheat was
made without any guano at all. If ev
ery farmer in the four counties of Jack
son. Hall, Gwinnett and Barrow would
make only one-fonrth of this amount,
we eoulh set our own price on cotton.
We hope every farmer will go to rais

BIG DECREASE IN
STATE TAX VALUES
A Big Slump Is Indicated In Reports of
Counties To Comptroller General’s
A decrease of $300,000,000 in the tax
values of real and personal property in
Georgia for li)21 is indicated by the
reports that have been received by
Comptroller Wright from the tax re
ceivers of the state. This means a
loss of $1,500,000 in revenue for the
state based upon the rate of live mills
Contributing further to the gloomy
aspects of the state’s tinances is the
disclosure that over $400,000 of the
1020 taxes are yet uncollected.
Comptroller Wright says that the
finances of the state are in worse shape
than they have been in during the past
41 years of his administration of his
The legislature last year appropri
ated $9,822,045.84 for various purposes,
and flic income of the state for this

knotty problem to solve.

PULLS AUTO OUT OF
HOLE, IS ARRESTED
Driver of Moving Van Arts Part of the
Good Samaritan, But Gets In
(By Tom Stokes, in Athens Herald)
You might call this little episode
“The Moving Van That Stopped Mov
ing." Or you might cull it something
Two trucks belonging to* Williams
Transfer Company here were coming
hack to Athens late Friday afternoon
from Atlanta, where they had carried
a load of furniture.
Along the road between Carl and
Auburn the negro driving the truck in
front was st<tpl>ed by an autolst in dis
tress. There was another man with
him. His ear had gone dead. After
assuring the negro that he would pay
for the pull to Athens, the ear, a Iluiek
six roadster, was bitched on behind. *
A cavulcade proceeded, the truck pull
ing the. eur in front, the other truck
some distance in the rear. The chain
pulled loose in Winder, right in front
of the house of Otis Camp, sheriff. (Re
member this fact, reader. The devotee
of Sherlock Holmes would call it a
clue.) The chain was hooked back, and
the Journey proceeded very merrily.
About three or four miles from
Winder it became evident that the par
ty was being pursued, as Sir Walter
would have said it. Let the negro
driving the truck in the rear speak a
“I saw a car a-coming behind us,,
and a-coming lik dey meant bus'ness—
Dere was fob or five men In her. I.
sez to myself, ‘Nigger, you better git
out o’ de way, and let ’em hah de road/
Den I saw as dey passed dnt dey was
officers. Dey went on to de truck in
front and stopped. ~
“Den I saw de two white men run
off to de woods. De officers shot two
or three times. But de men was done
gone. When we got up to de truck de
officers lmd done arrested de niggers,
and hud taken de car. Anil Lord, man,
dere was a pile of liquor bottles in dat
car. Dey suid it was a hundred and
ten gallons.. I don’t know how much
dere was, hut it was a-plenty.”
So It happened. The truck, the ne
gro driver and his mate, and the auto
mobile with its liquor frtdglit were all
taken hack t<* Winder, where they were
held. The other truck came on to Ath
ens, and Mr. Williams was notified.
The section was scoured, hut the two
men were not found when the last word
was heard from Winder. It is rurnoY
ed that one was from Athens.
Mr. Williams got in communication
with the sheriff, and his truck wus
brought to Athens Saturday afternoon.
The negroes, who were released a fit/
brought to Athens, say that they “aint
never gonna pull anything else” until
they see what it is carrying. And you
can’t blame them.
MOORE’S BOLL WEEVIL TRAP
Mr. L. L. Moore, of this city, has in
vented a boll weevil trap that beats any
thing we have ever seen to catch the
destructive pests. It straddles the row
and shakes the cotton stalk thoroughly
and catches the weevil in little troughs
thut are provided on the trap. We
have been living in South Georgia
w'here the boll w’eevil has been destroy
ing the cotton for years, and Mr.
Moore’s trap is the best we have ever
seen. We congratulate Mr. Moore on
his invention, for we believe he has
invented a machine at a smnll cost that
will catch the boll weevils.
