WINDER OIL MILL COMPANY RECENTLY
DESTROYED BY FIRE IS BEING REBUILT
Most Profitable Enter
prise.-Will Be in Full
Operation by October
Work was begun some time ago on the
rebuilding of the Winder Oil Mill
which was burned some months ago.
The work is being pushed rapidly and
the mill will be in full operation by Oc

pleted will again begin operation on a
large scale. The management of the
mill has shown splendid judgment in
conducting its affairs and it is one of
Winder’s best manufacturing enter
prises. The officers of the mill are
John A. Thompson, president; John L.
HVyris, vie president; IV. C. Harris,
secretary; Geo. Thompson, supt.
MRS. J. M. ROSS INJURED.

known ladies of Statham, suffered a

car she fell and in the fell suffered the
fracture. She was carried to Athens
for treatment and her friends are glad
to know that she is getting along well.

ter Lakemont, the popular North Geor-;
gia so miner resort for a day s picnic .
Leaving Winder at 5:30, we traveled
via Jefferson, Commerce, Homer, Hol
lingsworth, Cornelia, Demorest,' Clarks
ville and Tallulah Falls over roads
that were anything hut good. A fair
stretch from Winder to the Jackson
couii.y line, another good stretch from
Jefferson to, Commerce and thence on
ward from Bad to worse. But what
are had roads to folks mountain bound.
i 'rips were good along the rout' 1 ,
and one was greatly impressed with the
amount of peaches, apples, peas, corn,
at and chickens growing along the en
tire route. Certainly, people are plan
ning as never before to eat and live.
Reaching Tallulah Falls at 9:30 we
stopped over and viewed the splendid

numbers of people there eating, playing

themselves thoroughly. The recent

run by the club women of Georgia is
located there and it is doing much

Few finer views are to be had any
where in America than that of the
gorge and rugged mountains just back
of the Cliff House. But when the big
dam was put in it ruined the falls en

Leaving the falls we Journeyed on
northward toward Clayton. Just a few
miles on our road we crossed the rail
road over a bridge and then crossed

bridge is the prettiest water falls in

Little Daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Robt. Smith
Died Suddenly Tuesday
The many friends of Mr. and Mrs.
Robert J. Smith sympathize with them
sincerely in the death of their little
daughter which occurred Wednesday
It was a most beautiful and lovable

on account of their loss.
GEORGLVS FIRST BALE COTTON.
The first larie of cotton for the sea
son of 1921-22 was received in Savan
nah Tuesday of this week and sold at
public outcry at the cotton exchange.
It graded strictly low middling, green
and gin cut, and brought 68 cents per
: pound, the highest price in ten years,
except the season w’lieu the first bale
brought $1.38 a pound. It was bought
by Middleton A Peterson.
The hale was grown by A. B. Rog
ers, of Moultrie, Ga„ and was consign
ed to the E. A. Cutts Company, Savan
Mr. and Mrs. S. T. Maughou, of
Gainesville, were the guests this week
of the former's mother, Mrs. S. T.
-elf into an intensely white foam and
-etting up a spray, iu which innumera
ble rainbows can be seen.
As I stood with bared head and
watched this splendid scene, Lanier’s
immortal lines came afresh to me with
new and potential meaning:
••But, Oh! Not the hills of Habersham,
And, Oh.! Not the valleys of Hall
Avail! For lam fafn to water the plain
Downward the voices of duty call,
Downward to toil and he mixed with
For the wide fields burn and the mills

Calls through the valleys of Hall. ’
And the challenging call of the lord
ly plains is heard and answered by the
I waters, and in Mie response there is
beauty and power, life and blessings,
flowers ami fruits.
We had a delightful lunch prepared
by the ladies of the party and then for
awhile reveled in the beautiful scenery
around the lake.
There are few more-ideal places to
camp and spend a few quiet vacations
days than around the beautiful bor
ders of this placid mountain lake,
f Numbers of auto parties visit it dai
ly; boating is fine and fishing is su
perb if one can believe the stories that
the fishermen tell.
Four hours easy driving in a Ford
will put a man and his family in touch
with mountain scenery ns fine as can
he found anywhere in the country. An
outing for a day or so will bring great
loy to the entire family. The cost can
lie met for the priee of tobacco and coca
;cola for a few months and the worth of
the trip will always be appreciated
'cut off a few baseball games and a lit
tle chewing gum and tobacco, and go
up for a day or so.
If possible, get W. A. Brooks to go
on the trip with you If you decide to
take It this summer. His facaetious
comments on thlpgs in general, and the
scenery in particular will keep you
roaring with laughter continually.
By all sorts of reasoning there should
be a good highway built to these moun
tains, and if the Georgia legislature
wants to make itself famous, it should
get busy and have such a highway con
structed and named the “Legislature

A SUNDAY IN
Many people when away o n their va
cations leave their religion at home,
and Sunday is spent in the same kinds
of frolic as are indulged in on the oth
er days of the week. Such has not
been true of our boys camp. During
the week we have hiked and pluyed
ball. This morning the boys were ad
vised to write letters and read and rest.
It has been a source of great gratiti
cation to the camp director to see how
heartily they have enjoyed the deeper
things of the camp life. I think that
every boy wrote from one to three let
ters or cards. These were taken to the
railroad by our camp visitor, Mr. Sid
ney Holey, of Athens, who came out
yesterday and spent the night with his
It was announced that the Sunday
school lesson would be taught on the
piazza of the director's cottage at 10:00
Every boy in camp and our visitor was
present. It was a great pleasure to
speak to the boys on the “Life of Paul,
|the Apostle.” The offering taken was
!given to Mr. E. L. Griggs to send to
the Orphanage at Clinton, H. < .
At noon, the boys enjoyed fried
chicken and ice cream in addition to
I corn, tomatoes and the other things
which go to making up a good dinner.
The afternoon was spent by most of
the boys in reading and writing. After
evening mess, Chas. Harper, son of
Prof. Harper of the University of Geor
gia, conducted a Christian Endeavor
meeting. Many of the boys participat
ed in this. From this meeting on the
piazza, we adjourned to one of the hill
tops where we sang some of the old
hymns and enjoyed a glorious sunset.
At this meeting we took opportuni
ty to speak to the boys on a “Great
Life Principle." At the close of the
day it is gratifying to have a ilozeTl or
more boys come to you and say: It lias
