During the two weeks just closing it
has been the writer’s good pleasure to
be intimately connected with the Su
perior Court, serving as foreman of the
grand jury and between times listening
to the witnesses and lawyers and the
Judge Blanton Fortson is serving as
presiding officer here for his first time
There are a number of reasons why he
has piade a most favorable impression
on the people of the county.
First of all. he is a man physically,
tall, genial, affable, like Saul of old, in
,the respect of standing a head taller
than the average man.
Intellectually, he measures up to tne
exalted standard set in this circuit by
Congressman Brand and An
drew J. Cobb. He transact* business
with skill and despatch and has by his
general efficiency greatly endeared him
self to tine citizens of the county.
Than W, O. Dean no district in Geor
gia has a fairer and more able prose
He is a lawyer who can not only in
terpret and enforce the law, but he is
r. tine outstanding church worker and
can, in Sunday school and prayermeet
ing, greatly strengthen the gospel for
ces. The law violators fear and dread
him, while the upright, decent citizens
recognize in him one of the best equipp
ed jurists in the state.
The men who praerie in the eourts
here will stand with any other seetion
in the state on their merits.
The Shackelford Bros., of Athens,

cases and jointly ot separately, they
are in great demand. Col. Tlios. .T. has

house of the general assembly.
Cols. Lewis Russell and Chandler

AND THE BARROW TIMES
Mr. A. D. Robertson, the county dem
itystration agent of Barrow county,
held some very important meetings
bearing upon the boll weevil depreda
tion in this county last Tuesday.
At 10 o’clock, in the morning the first
meeting has held at Auburn. A good
crowd *as present and all the farmers
that heard the speeches were impress
ed with the suggestions made by the
speakers. A similar meeting was helc
at the grounds in this city at 10
o’clock and also at Bethlehem at 3:30
o’clock. Mr. J. K. Giles, of the State
Agricultural College, and who has been
laboring for several years in the boll
weevil territory was present at all of
these meetings and made addresses.
The farmers of the county are l>e
coming aroused and are fighting the
weevil with determination.
The Evangelistic Conference at
Bethel church in Walton county for all
the churches of the Apalachee associ
ation was a .success from every view
The churches were well represented
and the dinner and hospitality of the
Bethel community was all that could
Rev. John H. Webb spoke on Soul
Winning at 10 o'clock, followed by Dr.
Jurn.'s C. Wilkinson, pastor of the
First Baptist church of Athens, who
chose for his subject "Jesus as Soul
Winner.” Dr. Wilkinson is the newly
elected pastor of one of the strongest
churches in the South and charmed
and delighted his great congregation
with his enthusiasm, ability and clear
way of presenting his subject.
I)r. John F. Purser, of Atlanta, pres
ident of the Home Mission Board of
the 1 Southern Baptist convention,
preached at eleven-thirty on “Prayer
in Soul Winning.” It was a masterly
message from ii great soul.
The dinner was a gem—everything
to cat from fried chicken to ice cream.
In the afternoon addresses were de
livered by Revs. E. H. Jennings. L. A.
Henderson, O. W. Henderson, Brother
Marshall and McGaughey, Faust, Bell
On account of the summer evangelis
tic campaigns that will be on. further
meetings of the Preachers and Workers
Conference will be after September.
All who attended pronounced it one
of the best days in the history of de
nominational life of this great body.
Several from this city attended dlie
birthday dinner of Mr. Dave Crow on
Mr. Arch Perry’s farm Monday. A
great day was spent by all that were
present. A delicious dinner was
spread at the noon hour. Mr. Crow
was 75 years of age. About 100 guests
enjoyed the day.
criminals to keep on the qui vive.
The Grand Jury.
Of ail the grand juries the writer
has had the privilege of serving on the
one in service these two weeks has had
no peer. The leading citizens of the
county, they have with painstaking
care gone into the performance of their
sworn duty without fear or favor and
have searched diligently into conditions
existing in the county and their find
ings and presentments to be published
will be of decided benefit to the coun
ty i? followed.
Those who attended the sessions
were orderly and law-abiding and the
general impression left on the minds of
close observers is that the general
wave of criminality is receding and bet
ter times are in store for the county
On the whole the information re
ceived, and thoughts engendered, by
having experience in the courts causes
a spirit of optimism to surge in the
hearts of the most pessimistically in
clined. Surely better and brighter
days are just ahead of us.
Winder, Barrow County, Georgia, Thursday, July 7, 1921.
TAKEN UP MONDAY

Winder Defeats Law
renceville in Hot Game
Winder defeated on
the latter's grounds Wednesday after
noon by u score of 9to 2. The scoring
of the game took jjlace in the first
three innings of the game and after the
last of the third inning not another
j run crossed the plate. “Rabbit” Milli*
| gan, a former Georgia State Leaguer,
was ihe victim of the Winder boys.
This was the eleventh game Unit the
home boys have played this season and
they have been defeated only once,
having won the other ten games.
It is the purpose of the new base
ball club, composed wholly of home
boys to have some good games of base
ball here this summer (with apologies
for the game here July 4th with a
team we thought a real team from
Athens) and with the support that the
good citizens of Winder ou give them
by just attending the games they will
be enabled to bring a class of base ball
to our little city that will be nearly
on a par with the Million Dollar League
games of last year.
Let's help the boys out and when
there is a game in town lets all go to
it an show the boys that we appre
ciate our home talent as much as we
did the men who were being paid up
to four hundred dollars a month last
year for the same thing our boys are
doing for nothing. .
Come to the gaifiY* Thursay after
noon and help the Winder boys beat the
fast Lawrenceville team. Game will
be called at Valley Park at 4:00 o’clock
A Small Newspaper
We were shown the smallest news
paper published in the world so far as
<ve know. It is published at Liberal,
Kansas, and its young editor is Miss
Alice C. Nichols. She sent a copy of
her paper to Mr. J. W. Nichols, of this
city. It is a well-gotten up little pa
per of 4-pages. 3-columns in width and
about 6 inches long.
Winder’s Ball Team
Defeats Athens the 4th.
What purported to be a baseball game
but which in reality was a one-sided
running race, was played at Valley
Park in this city Monday, July 4th,
between Winder and Athens. The re
sult of the game was 26 to 6 in favor
THE BANK OF STATHAM.
In this issue of the News appears a
statement of the Bank of Statham,
one of the splendid financial institu
tions of the county. This statement
shows thnt the bank has been well
managed through these strenuous
times, and its officials are to be con
gratulated on the fine showing made.
FORD PLANT BUILDS
108,962 IN JUNE
Demands Exceeds Output as Ford
Breaks All Previous Records.
During the mouth of June, the Ford
Motor Company, through its Detroit
factories and 22 assembly plants thru
out the country reached the production
of 108,962 Ford cars and trucks, set
ting up anew high record for one
Production of Ford cars and trucks
has been steadily increasing since early
spring, and shows substantial gains
over the same period last year. The
second quarter of 1921, viz: April, May,
and June, shows an output of 301,796
Ford cars and trucks against 220.878
for the same three months of last year,
or a net increase of 80,918.
Although the Ford plants have been
unning at maximum capacity they have
not been able to supply the demand
Especially is this true of enclosed cars,
for which the demand has been unus
One reason cited by Ford officials for
the unprecedented demand for Ford
cars is the present tendency toward
economy. Many of those whose names
have been added to the long list of
buyers might well 'have afforded larger
and more costly cars than the Ford,
but it is the belief that the prospective
motor ear buyers are investigating all
of the costs incident to motoring much
more carefully than at any period dur
ing the past five years.
The estimated output of the Ford
factories for July calls for 545 cars
and trucks per work hour. In other
words, one Ford car or ruck leaves the
assembly line every seconds.

chase of a22 cent ticket. Mr. McDan
ald gave him in the change a twenty
dollar bill, mistaking it for SI.OO. He
was just $19.00 short. He failed to
get to church or Sunday school Sun
day morning trying to find out where
his money went to. Finally he renliz
tliat he had given the twenty dollar
bill, which was anew kind, for a one
dollar bill. He remembered that all
the people that bought tickets that
morning were Winder people so he set
out to see if any of them had his bill.
The first man he met was Mr. Wilson
Mr. Wilson did not look at the change
when Mr. McDonald gave it to him, so
he pull and out His pocket book to see. He
found the twenty tucked away with
some other bills. Everything was ev
ened up smilingly and Mr. McDonald
went on his way rejoicing and brag
ging about what nice people live in
