Special to The Winder News.
Company H, Fifth Infantry, Na
tional Guards of Georgia, Headquar
ters Camp William Taft, Lytle,
Ga., July 21, 1908. —The largest
encampment of the militia ever held
in the state comes to a cloce to
morrow, and the companies are
already making preparations to
strike tents and leave for home
points early Wednesday.
The Winder Guards have been
quartered on the southwest section
of the park, near the famous Dyer
House, with the other campanies of
the First battalion of the Fifth reg
iment, and during the entire time
have maintained a very high stand
ard in the manenvers. Their con
duct in the camps and on the field
has been such as to call forth com
pliments from the commanders of
the regiment and the other com
panies, and the showing made by
them on parade, review and in the
maneuvers ranks them in the fore
front of the national guard.
I As the base of First battalion,
they have participated in every
drill, and have been in the thick of
all the sham battles, getting the
benefit of the careful instruction of
regular army officers in field ser
vice, and under the command of
Capt. Johns, the company is
undoubtedly one of the best in the
state. Organized and mustered
into service just a little over a year,
with few experienced men in ranks,
the camp has been very helpful, and
the results gratifying to both offi
cers and men.
i The boys are taking great in-
in everything pertaining to
the service, and while the work
has been heavy at times for raw re
cruits, have been conducting them
selves like veterans.
Arriving at Chickamauga Park
Monday, July 13th, along with the
other companies of the Georgia
troops, it took them but a short
while to “fall in line, ” and before
the middle of the afetrnoon their
quarters were in order.
The first few drills and “hikes’ 1
were novel to us all, and the daily
Routine of cahip duty came thick
and fast for the boys. A few charges
at “double quick” up Snodgrass
Hill, and some longer "hikes” took
the novelty off and then the Guards
were “on the job” with the real
Every day these drills have been
made more lengthy and the com
pany has stuck with the vim of reg
ulars. In the sham battles Com
pany H has had a taste of what
•real warfare is, but through it all
no wavering has been seen.
Everyoody is ready for striking
tents, and the boys are thorougly
initiated into the service. Com
pany H leaves for Winder Wednes
day at 12 o’clock.
Speaking of the Winder Guards,
Colon''} E. E. Pomeroy, of the Fifth
Infantry, National Guards of Geor
“The work of Company H ( Win
der Guards), has been satisfactory
in every particular. A company of
recruits, it has moulded itself into a
very efficient organization worthy of
the support of all good citizens,'ca
pable and ready for tin' perform
ance of duty in the field or the quell
ing of civil disorders.
“The progress of the company
has been remarkable. Its officers
and men are to he congratulated.,
The citizens- of Winder should be
%\>roud of this -plenuid company.

a very pleasant time was spent.
We can sav that Mr. and Mrs.

nicest lawns in town for entertaining

Jefferson anJ Cornelia.
V Arrangements are Wing made by
Dr. Hall Turner and Missis.
and Hiram Flanigan to take a party
of friends from Winder to Tallulah
Falls in their large touring ears.
The Messrs. Flanigan purchased
recently a Buiek machine which is
the handsomest automobile over
seen in this section and Mr. luna r
is the possessor of two large cars of
the best makes.
There has been for some time
much rivalry among the auto own
ers of Winder and the enthusiasts
have been vicing with each other to
own the swiftest and handsomest
There are thirty-four automobiles
owned here, making this the au
tomobile center of northeast Geor
gia. Almost daily one hears heated
discussions on our streets relative
to the merits and demerits of the
different makes, and the man with
the small car is always to the front
with the claim that he can make
the touring cars take his dust on
any old road, while the owners of
the big, heavy machines term the
little fellows coffee pots, corn shel
ters, gully jumpers, etc.
From the discussion that is now
going on it is quite likely that the
trip to the falls will terminate in an
endurance contest with many of the
local owners competing, for you
have to show a Winder man before
he admits his machine is “on the
bum. ’ ’
The trip to Tallulah will be made
via Jefferson, Mavsville, Cornelia
and on to the falls- The ears will
leave Winder Friday afternoon, re
Dr. Turner handed the editor the
following telegram, stating it was
useless-to pay for sending it over
the wires: “Arrived all <>. K. with
out having left my seat.” It is to
be noticed the doctor doesn’t give
the time of his arrival.
THE BAPTIST CHURCH. JULY 16.
“Restricted Communion” will
be the subject for discussion at the
11:00 o’clock service. The presence
of the entire membership is most
earnestly desired. The discussion
will deal with principles, leaving
off abusive personalities, and we
would be glad to have a faithful
hearing of many of our open com
munionist friends that they may at
least understand our -position, and
we are sure that when we are under-'
stood that we will be more appreci
ated by those who dissent from us
on this subject.
The subject for the night service
will be “Lamenting After The Lord
with Idol Gods in Your Hands.”
