CEREMONIES OF THE KU RLUX KLAN.
VERY IMPRESSIVE WITH .MOKE
THAN 300 HOODED CLANSMEN
Twenty-five hundred to three
thousand people. men, women and
children, gathered at the Dali park
Tuesday night to witness the public
naturalization ceremonies of Knights
of the Ivu Klux Klan. The public had
Keen invited to these ceremonies thru
the columns of this paper last week,
and a majority of our citizens and many
from adjoining territory availed them
selves of this opportunity to witness
t hist his impressive ceremony.
This is the first meeting of this kind
ever held in Harrow county and those
who attended were very much interest
ed and impressed by the seriousness
and earnestness of the occasion.
At six o'clock two klansmeu on hors
es paraded the streets of Winder, and
four klausinen took their places as
guards at Valley Park. Klausinen and
horses were completely robed in white
which was a very attractive scene.
At seven-thirty o’clock about twenty
o’r more klansmeu reported at the park
for picket duty and to help in the park
ing of cars and caring for the people
who were arriving in large numbers,
even at this time.
The main body of Klansmeu came m
automobiles at eight-thirty o clock.
There was said to be about one hundred
automobiles in the procession bringing
i„ the klansmeu. which numbered pos
sible three hundred or more.
Shortly after the arrival of these
cars the Klansmeu took their places
and nrooeeded with the opening ceremo
ny. This was an impressive sight, as
the grounds were lighted with the nrej
cross and numbers of fuzies, which ra
diated a soft reddish light, adding to
the ghost-like appearance of the scene.
Th<‘ klansmeu assembled on a so.uaie
and sung a song, followed by prayer.
Following this opening ceremony fort>-
~ne candidates who were in waiting,
were brought forward and naturalized.
The naturalization ceremony was fol
lowed by the closing ceremony, after
which everybody went home.
This was the largest crowd ever seen
in Valley Park, notwithstanding the
fact that, we, in the days gone by and
almost forgotten, we had a Million 1 <>;

Two Short Years
Editor Winder News:
Asa people we have been ashamed
to engage in wliat we consider little
things, feeling, also that there would
not he enough in these smaller under
takings to yield a living.
The one idea in our minds here in
.lie South lias been that cotton was the
only money crop.
The farmers and all other classes
have for fifty years or more, believed
that the success of all endeavor hinged
solely on the production of cotton, and
it is a difficult matter to get it out of
This communication is not advisory,
or to tell others what they should or

people to think and to see the many
opportunities for overcoming the prob

der present conditions, and that there
are other ways of making a living and
having a bank account than depending
altogether on cotton as a means of sup
Ail old man: in his sixties came over
here from Russia, a little less than two
years ago with his wife and daughter,

manhood in his native country and de
sired to follow his calling here, but on
account of his age. his lack of knowl
edge of our lands and system of farm
ing; t yc* further fact that tie had no
money and could, not speak a word of
our language he thought best not to
undertake the cultivation of the soil
until after living here a few years and
familiarizing himself with our lauds,
seasons and what best to grow.
He had to do something for the
maintenance of himself and family,
however and proceeded to rent a small
home, with an acre or more of land
surrounding it, in a town out 35 miles
from Atlanta in Gwinnett county.
The old man was a stranger in a
strange country to him, hut he did not
give up, he did not sit down and wait
for opportunity to knock at his door.
He bought three milk cows and also
begun purchasing butter and eggs from
others in and around his town. With
the sour cream from his three cows and
the butter and eggs he buys, the old
man goes to Atlanta five days every
week supplying regular customers.
He does not spend his money as tho
it grew on trees, but lives well, having
all the necessary comforts for himself
and family. >
You may wonder, perhaps, how he
manages to make a living for his fami

Judge Russell Works
Late, Is Trailed.
Early Thursday morning as the sun
blinked liis eyes in the east and shot
a few reeonuoitering rays at his old
enemy, darkness, a form emerged from
the shadowy portal of the State Capitol
and was seen to ease down the Capitol
steps hi the direction of the city. A
solitary policeman strolling in the
neigliobrhood noticed the form and, be
coming suspicious, followed.
The person who came from the Cap
itol carried a package of papers and in
tin* semi-darkness moved down Hunter
street to Pryor and turned northward
to the Kimball Hotel. The policeman
trailed behind and cogitated. What on
earth could a person be doing at the
Capitol at 4 o’clock in the morning'.'
Why should lie slip out of ttie big build
ing just Before dawn? Some person
trying to rob the treasury? Or endeav
oring to resurrect the Capitol removal
bill? Or trying to repeal the prohibi
tion laws surreptitiously? Or what?
The policeman trailed the person
to the Kimball. The stranger walked
in. spoke cordially to the clerk, asked
for a key and, boarding till* elevator,
was whisked away to a room. The po
liceman approached the clerk.
“Who’s that guy?”
“Why, that’s Judge Richard B. Rus
sell, Chief Justice off the Supreme
Court.” The clerk replied.
The policeman was relieved but was
curious. He made further inquiries and
found that Judge Russell frequently
works far into the night on difficult
points of law involved in cases placed
before him. A 'little later Judge Rus
sell himself explained his actions.
“When I get interested in a case I
like to stay with it until I solve its
problems to my own satisfaction, and
last night I stayed up at the Capitol
until nearly daylight. But I think 1
got the right slant on the case,” lie
