The governor was at his best i.iui he delivered a tine speech and was heartily cheered by his hearers, lie -.poke along rhe lines of taxation and .slowed ihat he is deeply interested in getting the state out of the quagmire of debt.

He was met at the depot by a representative committee of our people who extended the courte sies of the city, and he was given a cordial reception by our people, lie was introduced to the large audience by Rev.

Rockwell. Parish. Par adise. Bethlehem. Auburn. Oak drove. Chandlers. Bethel, and Mt. Bethel. These displays show conclusively the great possibilities of this county and section and that our people should not grumble. We can live at home if we will only fry. Individual Exhibits.

J. Hardman & Bro., of Commerce. A Ladies Department. Among the very best exhibits of the fair are the exhibits of the ladies of the county. The display of canned goods, cooking, sewing, art work, paint ings, etc., show the finest skill, and proves conclusively that Barrow coun ty has the finest bunch of good house wives in hll tbe state. We were de lighted with their work. If you have not seen their work yet go hack and take a look at their exhibits. It is worth while. Poultry Department. This department is tip top. All kinds of chickens were on exhibition, and just as fine as you will see any where in all the country. Colored Exhibits. We were surprised at the exhibits of the colored people. House’s school and Tanner's school both had magnificent exhibits which shows conclusively that the patrons and children of these two siehools are wide-awake and progres- ® )c winder Mem AND THE BARROW TIMES GREAT MEETING OF FARMERS, BANKERS AND BUSINESS MEN The farmers, bankers and business 1 men of Barrow county will hold a 1 great meeting at the court house, Fri i day, October 7th, at 4 o’clock in the af -1 ternoon.

The event of the evening was an address by Hon. John N. Holder, of Jefferson, recently appointed lay leader of the Gainesville district. In an elo quent speech that gripped bis audience from the very beginning, Mr. Holder told of the opportunity of the laymen for service in the church today. He lauded the spirit of brotherhood and charity manifested ine the fraternal or ders but declared that the ehruch should have first place in the heart of .every follower of Christ, and that the work of the church called for meu of varied talents, and had a work for each man to do.

WINDER HIGH DOWNS ELBERTON 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 ! for thirty minutes before the game | which made it hard going for both 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 ed the hall thirty yards then on the next formation Rucker for Elberton dashed thirty yards around left for the first touchdown. The balance of the j first quarter was fought on mid-field j with neither team scoring. The sec lond quarter started with more fight ithan ever but the Elberton lads were ; unable to hold the Winder boys on liae plunges for Harrison’s hard plunges ; put the Oval over for the first toueh- Idown for Winder within three minutes [of play. P. Hill later kicked goal, tic | ing the score. With four minutes to iplay P. Hill dashed around right end ! for the second touchdown, later kicking goal, here the second quarter ended so did the scoring. Third and fourth quarters were fought on mid field, however danger of scoring was shown several times by 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. But it takes something more than boy to make a football team, and with your presence and support at these games they expect to win. Friday the Elberton boys will be visitors to our city in the afternoon. The two teams will meet at Valley Park for the second game. Let's everybody try Wd see this game, show your spirit for its half of the game. The game will start promptly at four o’clock. At a recent meeting of the W. C. T.

WHISKEY RUNNING 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 for trial. 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 line. 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 Midland Railroad. i 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 ed. 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.

S, Craft was hurt last Wednesday by being thrown against the wind shield of-Jhe car in which he was riding with his father ami little sister. The wind shield was broken and a gash was cut in the lit tle fellow’s face. Mr. Craft had his little daughter in his lap and on this account could not guide the car easily, li run against a tree which caused the accident. The car was not damaged to any great extent.

Mott, the malinger of the King Motor Cos. in this city is very optimistic over outlook In this section of the state. 11c says that good times have arrived ill Burrow county and in this section of the state. He sold 10 Ford cars and one Fordson tractor late *eck. He is doing a line business. Woodruff Hardware Sale Draws Immense Number of Buyers. The great sale that is going at the Woodruff Hardware Company is at tracting attention all over this section. Their large store was crowded to its utmost capacity the morning the sale started and has been crowded every day since. This Is evident proof that they are selling goods at truly bargain prices, because you can not fool the buying public. In this issue of The News is a picture of their store front on the morning that the sale started. If you haven't visited this store yet or even if you have do not fail to get your share of the bargains that they are giving the people of Barrow and ad joining counties. THE MILL SCHOOL. Why is it that some people respond to every good cause in the tip-building of a city and some people Just exist right on and do practically nothing, but wag their tongues? l'lease, Win der people, think about that question ttnd see if you can’t do a little bit more toward beautifying and helping the mill side of town to raise good citizens. Remember the older citizens are setting examples and to be honest with you some of the examples of cleanliness around the stores, mills, offices and va cant lots are bad. One more week is going to t>e given for you men and la dies to clean up. You know trash, old barrels and every kind of junk when you see it, so sweep around and make tilings attractive. There are always some schools neg lected in spite of teachers and a few doing their best. The mill school inis been neglected and yet it is under the public school system just the same. The big Winder Public School lias a good bit of equipment (such as maps, charts, globes, reference books, etc.) and too, an attractive play ground with drinking fount, shoot-to-shoot, basket bails, ocean waves, goggling board, vaulting poles, etc. Now ask what we have at the mill school along those lines. Nothing but a victrola. Yes, noth ing. l)o you understandV And it isn't fair, neither is it a square deal. We aren’t mad, but we do believe in peo ple getting a square deal in life. If somebody doesn't root and squeal for that square deal, smashing feet are on the weak who can’t help themselves and consequently they stay down for ever. We have hail good response in sever al of our undertakings, and we do ap preciate it. but here is a place where the different Sunday school classes, clubs und individuals can do some missiona ry work right at home. The following is u list of things need ed, wanted and that will be appreiuted. A globe, maps of the continents, more black board (we have about 18 feet to each room), drawing equipment, drinking fount, scissors for class room, drawing and cutting, yard sticks, flow er vases, stain for new book case, good books, magazines for pupils, also pat rons, anything for a kitchen, we have a four burner stove engaged, victrola records (as we have only a few) and any kind of play ground equipment. Yours for a good school. Ernestine Bush, Frankie Sparks, Willie Mae Holloway.
