GBIFFIN GETS A CREAMERY
Thu Was Settled at a Kass Meeting
Held This Afternoon
A large number of our business men
met at 4 o'clock this afternoon for the
purpose of securing a creamery for
Griffin. The meeting was organized by
electing Dr. N. B. Drewry chairman
and R. H. Drake secretary.
Dr Drewry in taking the chair
made a short speech, showing the ad
vantages such an enterprise would be
to the farmers of Spalding county,
upon whom the merchants of our city
depend so largely for a support.
Col. Redding staled that the station
had demonstrated the fact that as
good butter and cheese could be made
here as anywhere in the country. It
was the most profitable business that
could be engaged in, and the trouble
so far has been that it was only enjoy
ed on a small scale, He was sure that
if those present would contribute to
the enterprise, it would prove very
profitable. He stated that a first class
creamery would cost between $5,000
It was the desire of Mr. Wallace,
who represented Northern capitalists
to have the citizens of Griffin sub
scribe $2,500 toward the enterprise,
which amount was to be paid back to
subscribers, with 7 per cent, interest,
as soon as the creamery was estab
lished on a paying basis.
The matte? was discussed at con
siderable length, and all entered harti.
ly into the plan. Upon motion of
Judge Robt. T. Daniel, a committer,
consisting of N B. Drewry, R. H.
Drake, H. J. Wing, H. 11. Bass and
Douglas Boyd was appointed to raise
the necessary papers, and complete all
the arrangements for establishiug the
All present pledged their hearty
support to the enterprise and a cream
ery for Griffin is now an assured fact.
The meeting then adjourned subject
to a call from the

Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile, of
Whashita, I. T. He writes: “Four
bottles of Electric Bitters has cured
Mrs. Brewer of scrofula, which bad
caused her great suffering for years.
Terrible sores would break out on her
head and face, and the best doctors
could give no help; but her cure is
complete and her health is excellent.”
This shows what thousands have
proved—that Electric Bitters is the
best blood purifier known. It’s the
supreme remedy for eczema, tetter,
salt rheum, ulcers, boils and running
sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys and
bowels, expels poisons, helps digestion,
builds up the strength. Only 50 cents.

reached the Savannah quarantine
station at 12 : 30 o'clock yesterday and
there it stopped »o that the men might
go through with the process required
of all passengers !rom Cuba, namely,
fumigation. The moat interesting
feature in connection with the return
of the Third Georgia, so far aa has yet

the men waa begun. They had to re
move their clothing, put it all into
one big pot aud have the disinfecting
gases run through it. When the pro
cess—to which the < ffic<*rs, even the
colonel, are subjected, as well as tbe
men—it completed, the regiment will
be hurried up to tbe city as rapidly as
possible. They will be brought up on
lighters attached to tugs, and also on
the river steamer Santee, which is
used by the government for this pur

waiting for them.
The Georgians are in excellent con

them. Tbe fumigation, however, is a
