Beautiful Banquet Held At ,the A.
* & M. School.
The annual inspection of Com
pany B, Barnesville Blues, was held
in their armory Monday evening,
which was largely attended and which
was as usual an event of deep inter
est to the citiezns of Barnesville and
The inspection was made by Cap
tain Fall of the Florida National
Guard and was thorough and proved
to be highly gratifying to all the
friends of the Blues and to the of
ficers and members of the company.
The inspection was held in the
armory because of the inclement
weather and if it could have taken
place out of doors it would have per
haps been more satisfactory. The
inspector and the prominent military
officials present from different cities
in Georgia were much pleased by the
showing made and were of course
very complimentary to the company.
They all agree that this is one of the
crack companies of Georgia. A mat
ter which received their commenda
tion was the support which the peo
ple here give to the company and its
Preceding the inspection a delight
ful banquet was held in the dining
hall of the Sixth District A. & M.
School, where about two hundred
guests were present, making it a
scene which greatly pleased every
one present. The menu provided by
the school authorities was excellent
and the service rendered by the la
dies in charge, including the students
of the school, was all that could be
During the banquet a number of
interesting talks were made, which
proved instructive and helpful. Rev.
Arthur Jackson offered the opening
prayer and Rev. Marvin A. Franklin
pronounced the benediction as the
concluding number. Among those
making short talks were Col. .1. M.
Kimbrough, senior instructor Nation
al Guard of Georgia, Captain Fall,
Col. J. A. Gallogly of Atlanta, Cap
tain Farmer of Macon, Col. Curtis
Barrett, Lieutenant Richard Coursey,
Prof. L. D. Watson and Prof. T. O.
Galloway. It was indeed a very
pleasant occasion and apparently
everybody enjoyed it greatly.
Captain Graddick for himself as
captain and for the company was
given a Chautauqua salute, to which
he responded with a few appropriate
words of appreciation.
Prof, and Mrs. T. O. Galloway and
the members of the school faculty
and student body who assisted in
preparing and serving and making
the banquet such a successful af
fair were heartily thanked for the
courtesies they extended the com

MR. MANESS SPEAKS
Mr. J. C. Maness, of the State
Entomological department, spoke in
the court room last Thursday, telling
of the work of the department in
supplying calcium arsenate to the
farmers of the state. He stated that
the prospects were that the boll
weevil would do great damage this
year and that farmers must prepare
to make a vigorous fight against
them if cotton is to be made. The
entomological department can fur
nish arsenate to farmers in car lota
at 8 cents and in less quantities at
about cents under the plans
which they had perfected. They will
be glad to give anyone interested
complete information about the mat
THE HOG SALE
The hog sale Monday was exceed
ingly satisfactory except as to the
quantity brought in and offered for
sale. The hogs sold amounted to
only 8,000 pounds, whereas it was
hoped it would be at least twice that
Mr. W. R. Baird worked up the
sale and made all arrangements for
it. Mr. W. T. Bennett of Griffin,
county agent for Spalding, rendered
valuable assistance, which was much
The lot of hogs was sold at 11.60,
a very satisfactory price, really more
than was expected.
Mr. Baird now wants to got up a
car of chickens and those who have
chickens to offer should list them
with him at once, so that he will
know whether it will be possible to
secure a car lot. In car lots the
price will probably be much better
than could be secured otherwise. Mr.
Baird would like to get a car of
chickens for shipment in about two
