Receipts of the motor vehicle de

less\by $212,877.29 than they were up
until the same date in 1920, according
to figures announced Tuesday by Chas.
Cook, cashier of the motor vehicle de
partment in the office of Secretary of
State S. G. McLendon.
The total amount received up until
August 15, 1921. was $1,692,308.09, as
compared to $1,902,186.22 up to the
same date in 1920. The total number
of tags sold in 1921 to August 15, was
119.500, and to the same date in 1920,
Dealers’ license tags, according to
the new law, can only be used on cars
that are being demonstrated to a pros
pective buyer. Heretofore a dealer
could use his license on his personal
car or on cars belonging to his salesmen
It was discovered that in some instances
dealers would lend tags to friends to
be used on old cars to avoid payment of
the registration fee. Under the new
law this condition is changed.

AN ENJOYABLE REUNION OF THE CROOK
FAMILY HELD AUGUST THE NINTH AT
THE COUNTRY HOME OF MR. C. N. CROOK
Tuesday, August 9th, 1921, was a
memorable day to the children, rela
tives and some of the friends of the
late Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Crook.
Peacefully, “Neath the shade of the
trees” in old Center Grove church yard
side by side, sleep Mr. and Mrs. Geo.
W. Crook, pioneer settlers of Elbert
and Jackson counties, there awaiting
the resurrection morning. To this no
ble couple were born 12 children. 10
of whom survive them.
At the pretty country home of the
lest son. Mr. C. N. Crook, on Tues
day, August 9th, there gathered eight
of the ten living children, together with
> grand children, great grandchildren,
relatives and friends, to spend one
more day together, to renew old friend
ships, to “tell the old tales over,” and
drink deeply of memory’s mellow wine.
The day was ideal. Nature seemed
to smile in sympathy with this happy
• tl’s easy to describe the material
' mrt of this gathering, but what words
can do justice to the indescribable ties
that bind heart to heart and make the
lips tremble, and the eyes grow dim
with tears as friends and relatives,
brothers and sisters, meet again after
months and even years of separation?
At noon, a long table, which had
been placed beneath the shade of the
beautiful oaks on the lawn, was liter
ally laden with good things to eat.
flanked by huge tubs of iced lemonade
and ice tea. After the blessing had
been asked by Rev. Mcßrayer of Jef
ferson the guests refreshed themselves
by partaking of these good things.
After dinner, the people gathered
on the spacious porch and were en

The hour for feasting arrived; every
one partook himself or herself to the
vicinity of the table place in the shade
of beautiful oaks that grow such heavy
The table was loaded with pies,
cakes, meats and stews such as the
good people of Tyro know so well how
It seems to me these good women
know more of the art of building a
cake and baking a pie and preparing
tasty edibles than any of my knowledge
When It comes to meats and stews it
takes Tyro citizens to prepare them to
suit my fancy.
I knew this section when ten pupils
completed the roll. 1 saw it build up
aud then fall off.
In its successful days many years
ago I saw Big Ben Collier walk four
miles to this school. Bud O’Shields
walked from near Winder, Henry nnd
Ben Seyman walked from Justice Old
Mill to get learning here.
One more thought. It may be you are
domiciled in some city home and en
vironed with the wealthiest of the town.
You may be continually dressed iu the
cosliest garments with fingers and body
ajdorned with the most costly dia-*
monds. You may attend preaching in
a church building which cost its mil
lions, and sit in a cushioned pew. Lis
ten to a sermon of choice words which
tickles your fancy. Then barely lower
ing your head listen to wonderful pray
er (in words.) Listen to music vocal
and instrumental as charming as an
operatic performance. Does it mean
anything? The honest hearts, the sim
plicity in ever adt of those hoys in
this rural section. The good handshake
of the honest yeomanry of Tyro mean
something. There Is more religion in
one hour's stay here than a year, yea
a life-time in other environment.
C. M. THOMPSON.
Several short talks were made, after
which Rev. C. A. Strickland addressed
the crowd in an impressive manner.
He then asked that the people bow
their heads, and in one of the sweet
est prayers to which we ever listened
he asked the good All Father that one
bright day the Crook family might
form an unbroken circle in the Eter
nal Home, where there’ll be no more
partings, but an everlasting reunion.
It was a wonderful day to the fam
ily, and we trust to the friends, also
who were present.
Of the family who were present,
were the following: C. M. Crook and
wife. Center Grove, children and
grandchildren; C. C. Crook, wife, chil
dren and grandchildren of Danielsville;
W. L. Crook, wife and children of
Cnmeron, Texas; J. A. Crook, wife,

NEWS ITEMS FROM
Gathered From Exchan
ges in Adjoining
It was gratifying to see at court last
week, Judge Richard B. Russell, who
for eight years was Solicitor General
of the Western Circuit, and for seven
years was this circuit’s presiding judge.
There never stood before a jury of the
Western Circuit a more fearless prose
cuting attorney, aud there never charg
ed the law a fairer judge. For nine
years Judge Russell was a member of
the Court of Appeals, and more than
half of that time its chief judge. Here
he made a great record. With five
years of his term unexpired, he volun
tarily resigned, and resumed the prac
tice of law. He now practices all over
Georgia, and few lawyers have a lar
ger or more satisfactory clientile than
Right in this connection, we will
state that the bill to divide the Wes
tern Circuit did not pass. When it
cbed the house, there was some dif
ference of opinion among the represen
tatives in the house from the counties
composing the Western Circuit, so it
as agreed not to pass the bill this year.
The original bill put Clarke. Oconee
nd Walton, in one circuit; and Banks,
lack son, Barrow and Gwinnett in an
other. But the bill, as passed the sen
ate, put Banks, Clarke and Oconee in
me circuit, and Jackson, Barrow, Gwin
nett and Walton in another. This di
vision was thoroughly unsatisfactory
to some of the representatives, solely
because Banks does not adjoin ( larke,
or Oconee counties. Why should Jack
<on, which is adjacent to Clarke, not
be put in a circuit with the county?
There would be little criticism of the
bill if it put Clarke, Oconee, Jackson
and Banks in the same circuit; or
Hanks, Jackson, Barrow, Gwinnett,
ilton in one circuit; and Clarke and
Oconee in another, or have circuits as
provided in the original bill. It has
been suggested that there be no (livis
m of the circuit, but that an addi
tional judge be provided, as was the
case in the Macon circuit. If the Wes
tern circuit has more work than one
judge can do it seems to us that an ad
lonal judge would be equally as good
for the circuit as a division of the old
circuit that has existed so long.

Methodist Women Or
ganize for Local Work
At the conclusion of the Wednesday
evening service, the ladies of the Meth
odist congregation organized anew so
ciety for the work of the church. The
city was divided into four sections,
with one circle for each section, each
circle to have its own chairman and
treasurer. The object is not to raise
funds alone, but to more effectively
cover the territory, visiting the sick,
and looking after newcomers and stran
gers. At the present time there is
much friendly rivalry among the cir
cles in the raising of funds for the new
house of worship. There will be a so
cial gathering of the entire body on
each fifth Monday, when each circle
will give an account of its work. An
interesting feature is the plan by which
the pastor of the church can communi
cate with every family of the congrega
tion in an hour’s time, when impor
tant announcements are to be made.
The pastor communicates with the head
chairman, who at once telephones the
chairman of each circle, who in turn,
will get in touch with her captains for
each sub-division of her territory.
Officers and by-laws are to be decided
