In other words it was a courteous
recognition of two good papers.
Judge (’obb directed a verdict
in favor of the county ofieials,
making it clear to every one in his
interpretation of the law, that the
action of the ofieials was legal
and that The Barow Times was en
titled to become the legal organ.
The Barrow Times is, therefore,

Services Sunday Morning at the
One of the most impressive serv
ices ever held at the Christian
Church of Winder was that of last
Sunday morning, when Rev. R. E.
Moss, the minister of the church,
ordained the recently elected of
ficers in the presence of a large
audience. After reading and
briefly explaining the third chap
ter of Paul’s first epistle to Timo
thy as to the scriptural qualifica
tions and duties of elders and
deacons, the minister called to the
pulpit Messrs. J. M. Jackson, S.
P. Smith, L. M. Mayne and Claud
Mayne, the elders of the church,
to assist him. He then directed
Messrs. A. G. Lamar and J. A.
DeLay to stand side by side just
in front of the pulpit, while
Messrs. A. A. Thomas, W. L.
Mayne, 11. E. Ilaynie and I. E.
Jackson were in like manner di
rected; thus in a sacred circle
surrounding the edge of the pul
pit the first two were ordained as
elders and the last four as dea
cons. The ordination ceremony
was simple but solemn and im
pressive, as the minister, with J.
M. Jackson assisting, placed his
hands upon the heads of Messrs.
Lamar and DeLay and pronounc
ed the words setting them apart
as elders of the church. Then
having the four elders upon the
pulpit to place their hands upon
the four deacons-eleet, the minis
ter ordained them likewise. The
entire congregation stood during
the ceremony which concluded by
all solemnly repeating in unison
the “good confession,” that
“Jesus is the Christ the Son of the
living God,” the creed of the
church . During the invitation
song, just before the benediction,
young J. A. Ilaynie, the son of
H. E. Ilaynie, came forward to
confess his faith in Christ as his
MADE CASHIER OF
Air. J. E. Patman, who lias been
cashier of the North Georgia
Trust & Banking Company for
the past two years, has accepted
the position of cashier with the
Commercial Bank of Athens.
Mr. Patman is one of the rising
young bankers of the state and
well equipped for this important
place of trust.
His friends here regret to lose
him socially, and also from bank
ing circles, as lie was always po
lite and courteous to his custom
ers and the public generally.
Air. Patman was reared in
Athens, being a son of Mr. J. H.
Patman, a sucessful business man
of that city.
The Times wishes for him a
bright future with the hope he
may return here as a citizen in a
few years, finding Winder with a
population equal to that of
Athens at the present time.
