There are no times like the good old times to every fellow who
thinks of his boyhood days.
Every good eitizen believes in enforcing law and order. This
is the only way to protect society and make stable government.
The farmers of Harrow county are arranging for a big rally and
some able speakers to come off in Winder in the near future.
Very often duty compels men to make sacrifices and also to take
a course of action not pleasant and that would not be taken were it
not that duty demands it.

THE PROHIBITION QUESTION.
Since the sale of whiskey lias been made illegal and a violation of
the law, handling of it is a matter which concerns all good and law-a
Every man and woman recognizes it one of the greatest evils and
one that should he suppressed as much as possible. Public sentiment
is more united on this question than any other question confronting us
at this time.
'v* This is not a problem to he solved by fanatics and demagogus.but
by all good, level-headed citizens united for the good of society and
for the protection of our homes, our hoys and young men.
The fanatic too often goes to extremes which weakens the cause
advocated and the demagogue attempts to work on the enthusiasm of
the over zealous, if by so doing lie can accomplish his ends although
when brought to the real test exposes his insincerity.
'►s The only way by which blind tigers and violators of the prohibi
tion law can be stopped is by strictly enforcing the iawagainst selling
and handling intoxicating liquors. -
This cannot he successfully done without grand juries and all
good citizens finding the offenders so they may be brought before the
bar of justice and the courts imposing penalties that will deter vio
lators. It is impossible to stop this trafic if you have favorites to
shield while anxious? to have others prosecuted.
What the country needs is real consistent, well balanced men
pnd women to use their influence, give their aid and support in find
ing the violators and help have the law enforced.
The Harrow Times in an editorial headed “A Deplorable Condi
tion”, in its issue of October Ist, 1918, called the attention of its read
ers to the state of affairs confronting us and the disregard for the pro
hibition law. For the benefit of those who so soon forget, and for
those who failed to read it, we take the liberty of quoting below a
part of this editorial.
The Times painfully regrets to do or say anything of a
nature to bring our town or county in the lime-light as to
their moral status, but duty forces us to state emphatically,
that a deplorable condition of affairs confronts us calling for
the strongest condemnation of all good citizens.
Disregard for the state prohibition law, the increasing
blind tigers and violators of this law make it imperative on
the courts and law-abiding citizens that something he done.
It is becoming so public and the elfectsof it so noticeable
it cannot be hid, and not only are the people of this county
calling attention to it more and more, but the people of the
Harrow county cannot afford to let these charges of
gross violation of law go unnoticed longer without great de
triment to our future standing as a community. And the on
ly way to stop it is by united effort and strict enforcement
of the law.
Many communities are making tjiis complaint and it is
not confined to any one section of the county.
If blind tigers are allowed to go on and keep increasing
in number, we will have some tragedies that will not only
shock us, but the state at large.
This editorial was written Oct. Ist, 1918, to try and arouse the
conscience of our citizens and did not affect the circulation of the Har
row Times, as over 300 new subscribers have been added since itspub-

WILL LOAN MONEY
Col. Sam G. Brown Has Been
Honored by Being Named to
Represent the Federal Land
Mr. Sam <J. Brown, attorney of
Lawrenceville, (la., will maintain
an office in Winder, Ga., for the
purpose of lending money on farm
lands and be convenient to the
farmers of Barrow, Walton, .Jack
son, Oconee and other counties in
Below is a clipping from the
Gwinett Journal relative to Mr.
Brown’s business. He will also
loan money for individuals:
Gol. Sam G. Brown is paid the
highest compliment that can
come to an attorney when the Fed
oral Land Bank, of Columbia, S.
C., asks him to loan money for
them without any solicitation
whatever on the part of Mr.
Brown. The federal government
recognizes his ability and integri
ty when they ask him to handle
their funds, and be is to be con
gratulated for this honor. He is
also worthy of this honor, for he
has made an enviable record
when it comes to handling money
for corporations, life insurance
companies, individuals, and now
the United States government,
having had many years experi
ence, and has been unusually suc
cessful in this work, lie started
out negotiating loans for the Geor
gia Loan & Trust Cos., about 12
years ago for the county of Gwin
nett ; the company recognizing his
qualifications, gave him more ter
ritory, it comprising the counties
of Gwinnett, Barrow r , Walton,
Jackson, and Forsyth; hut now
Mr. Brown loans money
anywhere in the state of Geor
gia on farm lands in amounts
from SSOO to SIOO,OOO, and always
gets tlie money promptly for the
farmers, lie maintains offices in
Lawrenceville, Atlanta and Win
der, and any farmer who wants
jnoneyon lii.s land would do well
to see Mr. Brown. Thousands of
farmers own their homes today
hy dealing through Mr. Brown’s
companies, and no farmer can
truthfully say that lie ever lost his
lime hy dealing with his compa
lies. lie has never sold a farmer’s
land out at public outcry, and this
speaks well for his people, lie will
loans for five years’ time, thereby
giving the borrower plenty of
time to pay the money back and
improve bis land if be wants to
do so, and at tbe end of five years
the loan can he renewed for anoth
er five years, all that lias to be
paid is the interest at the end of
each year. By way of pareuthe
sis, Mr. Brown not only lias the
reputation of having negotiated
the largest farm loan in Georgia,
which was SIOO,OOO. on 10,000
acres of land hut this is the larg
est farm loan south of the Mason
and Dixon line.

ed by Mr. Brown from the federal

Since remote antiquity, man has found pleasure in the eating of frozen sub
stances. The Bible speaks of the people of Palestine appreciating the refrshing
qualities of snow in harvest time. The ancient Jews, Greeks and Homans were
accustomed to its use for the cooling of beverages.
Alexander the Great relished a substance much like our sherbets today,
frozen with snow brought from a mountain top by a swift running slave.
But about the first real ice cream ever made was placed before Louis XIV,
King of Frnnce, by his chef, who used cream in the ice of his invention, and
thereby made ice cream.
In our own country ice cream became popular before the Revolution. The
manufacturer of this dainty obtained a high price in those days as the recipe
was kept a close secret. The first advertisement of ice cream in this country
appeared in a New York paper dated June 8, 1786. and rends: “Ladies and
Gentlemen may be supplied with iee cream every day at the City Tavern by
their humble servant Joseph Crowe.” The article furnished by the humble
Joseph was surely a luxury as it cost a dollar a quart.
Ice Cream is not only one of the most delicious of sweets, enjoyed by old
and young, but it is also a very nutritious food. It has several times the food
value of candies; a quart is worth nearly as mueh ns three pounds of beef
steak. Because it is so nutritious and so easily digested physicians recommend
it to invalids and convalescent patients; athletes in training eat it; and, if
home made so that you know it is pure and free from harmful adulterations, it.
is the best of food for growing girls and boys. Children tire bound to have it
and if not given to them at home where it can be made absolutely pure they will
buy it on the street from doubtful sources.
1 manufacture Ice Cream of all kinds, for any occasion—on just a fc-*C
hours’ notice. Mail orders given prompt, attention.
