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 people. 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 its columns.

RAILWAY IN ‘RECEIVERS HANDS The Income of Road Must Be Increased ad Expenses Reduced if the Road Continues. 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 ceivers. 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 WINDER CONCERN Negotiations Are In Progress Now to Put the Bell Overall Plant in Operation Again. The Bell Manufacturing factory, one of the important enterprises of Winder, will probably soon be in operation again. It has been idle for some time 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 in progress now looking to the settle ment of the difficulties surrounding the institution and if successful it will resume work. This will lie welcomed by all our people for the Bell factory has done much to help on the growth and prosperity of Winder. The News sincerely hopes that in just a short time it will be enabled to announce that the wheels will again begin to turn and that this important enter prise will again begin to do business. Mrs. H.

CONSERVATION RE 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 small sum. 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.
