REACH GROWERS AUK. BUSY GUT
TING THEIR PRODUCT ON
The scenes around the peach
farms in this community are in
teresting indeed just now. The
famous Elbertas are some days la
ter in getting ready for the mar
ket here than at Fort Valley and
Marshallville and in that section,
but they are none the less attrac
tive when they do get ready.
There are spores of fruit buyers
here looking after the interests of
their various firms and they are
all anxious for the fruit. The
fruit crop is short in this commu
nity, but there will be about fifty
cars shipped by the growers here.
While the crop is short the fruit
is very fine, in size and flavor, and
the prices demanded are somewhat
above the average.
The scenes around the fruit
farms and around the city, show
something of the importance of
the industry. At the farms every
thing is on the go. Scores of peo
ple are employed, each person at
his task and it is certainly an in
teresting scene. Picking, packing
and getting the fruit in the cars
and to the shipping point occupy
the attention and everything looks
like business and it is business.
While Barneaville will ship only
about fifty ears this season, it
means much for the community,
and we doubt not that in a few
short years hundreds of cars will
leave Barneaville every season for
the American and European mar
kets, putting shekels in the pock
ets of the growers and all the peo
ple of the section.
The peach industry is in its in
fancy here and it is certain to be
come more important as the years
pass by. No where can the fa
mous Elberta be grown to greater
perfection or with more profit
than around Barnesville and the
market is simply unlimited. The
whole world wants the Elberta
and will pay money to get it.
Mr. V. (). Marshborn, the real
pioneer peach grower of the com
munity, is busy night and day
gathering and shipping. The El
bertas produced on his Hill Crest
farm are famous throughout the
country, and it is no trouble to
dispose of all he can grow every
year. His crop, of course, is short,
but he will ship about twenty-five
cars this season.
Messrs. Stafford & Howard will
ship about fifteen cars. They
have one of the finest orchards in
the state, thousands of young trees
and are putting out thousands
more every year. They are expert
fruit growers and are bound to
make a great success of the busi
Among the smaller growers are
Messrs. J. C. Collier, Albert Mid
dlebrooks, A. O. Murphey, T. W.
Cochran, .Joe Sappington.
Comes to Barnesville.
Mr. J. R. Sims of Perry, Ga.,
arrived in the city Monday after
noon, and will make this his home
in the future. He comes to en
gage in the practice of his profes
sion, dentistry, and has already
secured offices over the store of
Mr. B. F. Reeves.
It will he remembered that the
family of Mr. Sims has been here
all the summer, but owing to cir
cumstances over which he had no
control, was unable to locate here
Mr. Sims has the distinction of
being a very fine dentist and will
doubtless command a liberal pat
ronage from our citizens.

Crib of Corn Burned.
Friday night about 9 o’clock a
small barn at the home of Mr. P.
F. Matthews was discovered on
fire and in a very short time it was
burned down, with about 200
bushels of corn.
The fire company responded
promptly to the alarm and prob
ably kept the larger barn and
other houses from being destroyed.
It is supposed the fire originated
from cigarette smoking by some
boys, or from a match dropped in
Several years ago a larger barn
was burned in the same lot. The
people sympathize with Mr. < Mat
thews in the misfortunes which
have befallen him. He has suffer
ed heavy losses by fire.

who stayed until the fire was all out
and saved several bushels of corn, J
return my sincere thanks.

I at first thought my barn was set
on fire by little negroes smoking, but
after consulting with others I am con
vinced it was the work of an incendiary
and I will give $25.00 for the arrest of
