Joshua Simpkins was the center
of attraction in Winder Saturday
night. This show is not new to this
section. Those who remembered
the former visit came again, and
those who had never seen it, came
to; thereby making a packed house.
The plot of the storv was excellent

Waif of the Mines.”
This was a western show of the
best type. The lives and charac

country was illustrated in a very
entertaining way. The story was

parts in a very creditable way.

Will THEY BE ASKED EO MOVE ON.
Some weeks ago a little Chinaman
arrived m Winder from San Fran
cisco. He knocked at the door of
Winder’s public school and was
admitted. He was neat, clean and
well behaved, hut he was a Chink.
A howl was raised by some of the
patrons of the school, and this Wr.ek
the board of education instructed
Superintendent Robeson to send the
little Celestial home. We don’t
question the wisdom or right of the
lx>ard, and do not wish To be mis
understood. For 20 years, in the
ranks of organized labor, we have
added our protest to others aeainst
the admission of the Chinese, Japa
nese and all the anarchistic riff-raff
of Europe into this country. But
what we can’t understand is this.
The same men who shut the door
of knowledge in the face of this lit
tle Chink, cough up money every
year to build school houses in China
and send our best Puritan blood
across the seas to educate them.
When these Christian gentlemen
reach the Glory Land and meet
some of their converts of heathen
lands, will they protest to St. Peter
for the Chinks to move on?
THEY GET ’EM ANYWAY.

All day Saturdry the streets of
Winder were crowded.
People from several miles in the
country, visitors from other towns
and home people. There is no
letter proof of the popularity and
prosper*v of a young city than to
see her streets crowded with people
hungry for the goods that have been
laid in store for them.
It is a high compliment to the
town and (‘specially to the mer

less families move near Winder to
