Coach l’agc with 17 of his young
sters journeyed over to Elberton Fri
day morning for their tirst football
I game of the season with the Elberton
! High School. A downpour of rain fell

I teams, however, it was a thrilling affair
from start to finish with Winder High
taking the big end of the score, 11 to 7.
Hill kicked off to Elberton who return

next formation Rucker for Elberton
dashed thirty yards around left for the
first touchdown. The balance of the

both teams. Rucker for Elberton.
showed best for his team while for Win
der the entire team showed splendid
form: their line held like a brick wall,
never being broken. The back field is
light but has world's of spins! and it
was displayed in great form. Coach
Page has worked hard with the boys
for the past month trying to put out a
winning team so that the people of
Winder might see some real football.

to make a football team, and with

AUTO IS CAPTURED
A break neck pursuit of a whiskey
running automobile ended four miles
from Athens Monday morning when a
whiskey car turned turtle as it was
cornered by n pursuing posse from
Jackson county and a posse from
Clarke county that went to intercept
it. No one was hurt. One hundred
gallons of whiskey in two barrels, and
the car were confiscated and two pret
ty young women and a man were ar
rested and taken hack to Jefferson jail
The pursuit started at Jefferson on a
tip to Sheriff Collier and was contin
ued at a sixt.v-mile an hour gait, with
the pursuing posse keeping up a steady
volley of lire at the tires of the fleeing
automobile. Careening and sliding on
the wet road, the whiskey runners kept
their'' lead on their pursuers until the
posse from Athens was sighted in
front, waving down the driver with
their weapons while the steady crack
of the shots sounded behind him. He
lost control and the big machine plun
ged off the road, turning half over and
spilling its occupants and the whis
key just a few yards from the county
The parties in the car gave their
.names as Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Plurner
and Mrs. Mabelle Williams, of Augus
ta. The sheriff of Jackson county
thinks th(>se are not the real names of
the parties. They said that they se
cured the tiquor in Dawson county
and were on their way to Augusta.
They are being held in jail in Jefferson
where they will he tried.
Employee* Offer Take
Over The Gainesville
An interesting proposition lias been
i made to the owners of the Gainesville
railroad by the employees of that road.
They propose to take over the road and
operate it. Rather than see the road
! scrapped it would boa good idea to let
'them make the experiment.
We have the following information
1 in regard to said road which bears an
Athens date line:
Employees of the Gainesville Mid
land railroad which runs between Ath
ens and Gainesville and between Gaines
villel and Monroe, will take over the
operation of that road if proposals made
to George J. Baldwin, of New York,
president of the company, are acvept
The proposals, which were made by
the operatives through J. T. Adair, of
Athens, for several years, and now en
gineer on the Midland, follow the vol
untary throwing of the road into a re
ceivership and the subsequent petition
to the Interstate Commerce commission
to dismantle it.
At the same time the proposal of
the employees became known it was
learned that there is a group of sub
stantial business men in Athens who ure
willing to pay the company more for
the road than it would bring if it were
Scrapped and the iron marketed. These
men will make this offer rather than
the road thrown out of commission,
r is stated. Athens business men ure
interested particularly in the Athens-
Jeffer-on part of the road, it being un
derstood that the company especially
desires to junk that part.

Number of Buyers.
The great sale that is going at the

Their large store was crowded to its
