THE WINDER NEWS AND BARROW TIMES
CONSOLIDATED, EFFECTIVE AT ONCE
Winder’s Two Newspapers Are Merged
Inti) One And Better Service Will
Be Given the Public.
Mr. A. G. Lamar, representing the
Barrow Times Publishing Cos., has sold
the Barrow Times, with its good will,
subscription list and equipment to The
Winder News and the two papers will
be consolidated. This means that this
city and county will have better ser
vice in the future from a newspaper
standpoint than heretofore. Instead of
a division of efforts in getting out two
papers, all interests will be concen
trated in one paper and in this way
the public will get better service, and
the advertising interests of this city and
section will be enabled to reach the
people,at a less cost than heretofore.
All subscribers to the Barrow Times
will be taken care of in the consolida
tion. Those who have paid their sub
scriptions in advance will receive the
consolidated paper, and those who are
due the Times on subscription will pay
same at the Winder News office.
The publishers of the consolidated
papers propose to leave no stone un
turned to serve the people of this city
and section acceptably. The subscrip
tion fate will remain the same, and a
determined effort will be made to give
Winder and Barrow county a newsy,
up-to-date paper. The paper should
go into every home in the county and
strenuous efforts will be put forth to
make it a welcome visitor to all our
Next week the Winder News will go
to all the subscribers of the Barrow
Times who are not subscribers to The
News and full announcement will be
made in that issue so that all sub
scribers to the Times will fully under
stand their status with the paper.
Next week's paper will be widely
read by everybody in this section and
all advertisers will have a splendid
opportunity to reach the public through

The Income of Road Must Be Increased
ad Expenses Reduced if the
Effective February 15th, Gordon C.
Carson and W. B. Veazey, Receivers,
(Mr. Veazey in active charge) appoint
ed by the District Court of the United
States for the Southern District of
Georgia* took possession of all the prop
erty and assets of the Gainesville Mid
land Railway. At present the old of
ficers and employees of the Railway
retain their positions under the Re
In discussing the situation with Mr.
Veazey, he stated that two things had
to take place right away, or the road
could not continue operation—one was
a reduction in expenses, and the other
an increase in revenue. Every effort
is being made to bring about both, so
that it will be possible to keep going.
He does not feel that the people serv
ed by the Gainesville Midland Railway
really appreciate the seriousness of the
situation, and the grave possibilities
of its not being able to continue. The
public is more or less inclined to ac
cept the situation as a matter of course
and feeling it will be worked out some
way. and are not inclined to concern
itself much about it.
Mr. Veazey states that his forces are
making a vigorous effort to secure ev
ery pound of freight to be had. and
that the people invariably express them
selves as being perfectly willing that
the road have the business, but as a
matter of fact, the road is not getting
it, and cannot get it without very act
ive co-operation of the people, who
must insist on their routing re
spected in every case, as there is ab
olutcly nothing that the Railway ca t
do in case their routing instructions
are not complied with. The road serves
>nly a small territory, and in order to
make it prosperous, it must necessarily
secure the traffic in that territory. Mr.
Veazey feels that all the employees are
willing to do their part in working out
| the situation, and states that he is
i much gratified to note the interest be
■ ing manifested along the line in the
road’s welfare at this time, and con
fidently believes that if this interest is
developed into active co-operation, and
everybody will help, the Receivers will
be able to bring the property out of its
troubles. On the other hand, if theses
things do not take place, there is no
hope of continued operation of the
road, and it must ultimately, and pos
sibly in a very short while, be disman
tled, in whole or in part.
It is the purpose of the Receivers
to leave nothing undone that will tend
to improve the situation, and over
come the present difficulties, giving the
patrons of the road the very best pos
sible service under trying conditions.
Mr. Veazey is exceedingly anxious
for the full support and co-operation
of every patron of the road, and cer
tainly should, and we are confident will
have that support.

EFFORTS TO SAVE
Negotiations Are In Progress Now to

The Bell Manufacturing factory, one
of the important enterprises of Winder,

caused by the deflation in the price
of all commodities and on account of
the stringency of the money market.
We understand that negotiations are

the institution and if successful it will
resume work. This will lie welcomed
by all our people for the Bell factory

that the wheels will again begin to

SULTS IN WINDER
On last Thursday afternoon the
Young Matrons’ Federated club of
Winder, held their regular monthly
business meeting at the home of Mrs.
W. O. Perry on Stephens street. At
the Januury meeting the members of
the club were asked by the conserva
tion committee, Mrs. W. A. Bradley as
chairman, to conserve in some way by
bringing to this meeting made-over gar
ments, which had been discarded in
years gone by when we were not think
ing so keenly about conservation us
we now are. Much to the surprise of
each one, we all had useful and some
really beautiful articles to show for our
efforts. I will only mention a few of
the many things, dresses, hats, sheets,
skirts, children’s dresses, aprons made
from discarded shirts and blankets
made into comflorts. Each member
was an inspiration to the other and
many new ideas were conveyed on
this occasion, showing in just how
many ways we could conserve.
There were four beautiful dresses,
one made over with a very small cost
by Mrs. Clyde Williamson, one made
by Mrs. Alice* Dunn from a coat-suit,
which had been used for several sea
sons and another by Mrs. C. B. Almond
which she had planned and made for a
Mrs. G. A. Johns had made a child’s
dress from another dress. Mrs. Bessie
Edwards, Mrs. Frances Haroldson and
Mrs. K. P. Carpenter were very effi
cient and satisfactory judges on tlds
occasion. The first prize was awarded
to Mrs. 11. E. -Millikln, second prize to
Mrs. Alice Dunn.
Much business of importance was
transacted at this time. Late in the
afternoon the hostess invited the guests
into the dining room and delightful re
freshments were served.
The club members were enthusiastic
in their praise and appreciation of the
profitable and enjoyable entertainment
given them by the conservation com
mittee.—Mrs. W. O. Perry, Press Re
