VOL. XVI. MAKE FINE SHOWING Winder Guards Conduct Th^mse'ves Like Veterans —Colonel Pomeroy * P r aises Company H. 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 l 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 goods. 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 gia, said: “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. 7 6 WINDER, JACKSON COUNTY, GEORGIA. THURSDAY.

One of the most enjoyable affairs of the week was the pretty party given by Mrs. H. A Carithers in honor of her Menden hall, Miss of Atlanta, and Miss Sorrell, of Athens, the guest of the Misses Carithers on Candler street. The color scheme of pink and white was‘artistically carried out. The house was decorated in palms. Ferns and cut flowers.

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 machine. 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 turning Monday. 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.
