meeting in a short speech in the
course of which lie took occasion to
say that, while he did i.ot wish to be
understood as inimical to the work,
if a permanent organization was de
cided upon it would require the ex

and sacrifice of time, money and la

could possibly give it. He doited
his remarks by reading a letter from
the acting State Secretary along the

tiro organization of a young men's

week at Invinville, commencing on
Monday morning, duly 11th, and

The attendance was small, only
fifteen, owing to the fact that many
of the teachers in charge of
the public schools of Irwiu are
from other counties ami had closed
their sotiools und gone to their re

by Prof. L. R. Tucker, proved to be

those in attendance who took an in

The lectures and discussions were
confined to the rudimentary branches
of an English education- -orthogra

The Georgia Southern and Florida
railroad was constructed about three
years ago through almost an unbrok
en forest of pines, standing on lands
that were considered worthless by
the outside world. The gentlemen
interested in this enterprise, however,
lmd thoroughly examined the coun
try mid knew what they were build
ing on; and entrusting their affairs
to those in whom they had confidence
started out to develop the country
and build up farms as fast as they
cut down trees. The mumigenient
realizing that the task wus a big one
set about it in a broad ami liberal
spirit They advertised first to tho
world that the finest pine timber in
Georgia wus to be found along its
line, aud said to the saw mill man
and maim facta rer, “If you will buy
the machinery, we will haul it for
you free, and will put you in us much
side track us yon need and charge
you no rental. This wus certainly
an innovation, as it was the first in
stance of a railroad company in Geor
gia furnishing free side trucks and
free tronsporbitibp for machinery.
Tho mills along this road give the
best evidence of the soundness of this

Not content with ibis, they started
a farm for the purpose of conduct
ing experiments fur the benefit of
the planters und to aid in tho rapid
settling up of the country with a
thrifty agricultural people us fast as
tlie mill men should clear away the
timber. A visit to tliia farm will
open tlie eyes of the doubler, and if
lie be a farmer, be will go away with
the full determination of improving
on the old methods, for indeed it is
a mndul farm.
And this is not all; for they invit
ed the planters along tho line of road
to visil this farm, and took them
down free in order that they might
see for themselves the result of an
experiment which they me conduct
ing iu tobacco growing, which is des
tined to become tho great crop of this
section, and which is said by experts
to excel any portion of the United
States for tobacco growing.
Surely tlie phut tors along this road
should congratulate themselves that
it is under such progressive manage
ment, und tlu- people should give it
their hearty support and eo-opera-

roads pursue this policy of helping
to build up the people along their
lines, that feeling of antagonism of
the people towards these corporal tons
would pass away, und tlie railroads
would not Ire afraid to submit their
cases in court to juries taken from
citizens along their lines, for the peo
ple w6uld not submit to an Injustice
being done to the railroad that had
