CAIRO, GRADY COUNTY, GEORGIA, FR'IDAY, APRIL 7, 1911.
Company Being in Process of
TARTING OFF WITH $25,000 CAPITOLS
Will. Be Under Management and
Owned by Cairo and Grady
Cairo is to have a fertilizer fac
This can be said to be authorita
The company is now being or
ganized and will probably apply
for a charter within the next
week or two.
The parties who have this mat
ter in hand are fully able to carry
it to a successful termination.
At present the capital stock
will be about $25,000 and may go
as high as $50,000.
‘ This section of the state is sad
ly in need of such an enterprise,
and as the farmers are each year
using more and more fertilizer it
; ! -is predicted that it will be a fi-
‘ vnancial success.
iC - It was fully expected that every
. , thing would be ready to perfect
i .- an organization this week but
.. , §ome Of the parties interested
; were compelled to be out of town.
- ' ' This is one of the pet enter-
v • prises advocated by The Pro-
-ofysss for several month.
J The incorporators will be The
Cannon Co., W. B. Roddenber,
Walter Davis, W. H. Robinson.
The next move is a furniture
factory. The timber for such
an interprise is here in abundance
and as fine as can be found in
any section of the United States.
With nearly a half million de
posits in the four banks in the
^county shows that ample capitol
is in the county to finance almost
any enterprise the people are
willing to undertake.
Will not some of our enterpriz-
ing citizen undertake to establish
a furniture factory.
Get busy and make Cairo grow.

JOHN K. ARLif
HAS PASSED AWAY
Died at the Home ol His Son, Dr.
Arline, Last Saturday. He Had
Lived In This Section For Many-
Died, at the residence of his son,
Dr. 1. J. Arline, John K. Arline,
aged 81 years, 9 months and .26
Born June 5th, 1829, and died
April 1, 1911, aie the dates of
Brother Arline’s natural life, j but
the mere statement that he was
born and that he died do not tell
the complete history and they can
not measure the result of the life he
Born in Lawrence county, he
was brought by his parents to this
section, then Decatur county, when
lie was but two years of age and so
he spent eighty years in this section
and his life was read and known of
all men. Here he lived and loved
and served his fellows; here he
walked after the Master, loved his
church and served God.
Of a quiet and gentle disposition,
he was never forward in pushing
himself before his fellows, but
humbly, gently and meekly he bore
life’s trials, carried its. burdens and
did' his duty unto the end and then
in a ripe old age, with all his loved
ones around him, “he fell.on sleep
by the will of God” and went home
One.who knew Bro. Ailine inti
mately said “I can’t- remember of
his ever backsliding.” He always
maintained his family altar, gath
ering his family around him for the
worship of God. He frequently
prayed that his last days might be
his brightest and happiest and this
prayer was granted. His sick bed
was near unto heayen and the an
gels of God we're close to His ser
vant. Conscious unto the last, he
talked as calmly of death as one
would of a short journey. His mind
was clear unto the last and he wit
nessed a good confession. Heaven
came near to that sick chamber and

above all the Master, Himself, was|Thk Progress,
with His servant as he went through
the valley of the shadow of death.
The funeral was held at the Meth
odist church, which was filled with
relatives and sympathizing friends.
Rev. W. C. Jones conducted the
services, assisted, byRev. Dr. Harris
and ,)Rey. W.EiTowson, Tlid fii-
neral address was a note of triumph
and thanksgiving for the long and
beautiful life of Bro. Arline. Bro.
Jones spoke from personal knowl
edge, having been his pastor for
three years, While there was sad
ness over the thought that we
should see his face no more, yet
there was jov in the thought that
God’s servant had fought such a
good fight and at last was crowned
At the gravo Bro. Arline’s niece,
Mrs. Mary Logue, of Boston, and
his two sisters sang, by his request,
one of the old songs, two yerses of
which are as follows.
Wliat’s this that steals, that steals up
on my frame,
Is it death, is it death?
That soon will quench, will quench this
Is it death, is it death?
If-this be death I soon shall be
From every paiu and sorrow free,
I shall the King of Glory see,
Allis well, all is well!
Weep not my friends, my friends weep
not for me,
All is well, all is well,
My sins are,pardoned, pardoned, I am
■ All is well, all is well,
There’s not a cloud that doth arise
To hide my Jesus from my eyes:
■I soon shall mouut the upper skies,
All is well, all is well!
The singing of this old-time song
revived memories of other days and
brought tears to many eyes.
Besides numerous friends and ac :
quaintanees, there were present at
the funeral Mrs- Arline, Dr, and
Mrs. T, J. Arline and children, his,
sons, Ira, R. L., ancl J. J. Arline
and Wife, his two daughters, Jose
phine and Lela, his sister, Mrs.
Homer Sapp and Miss Margare

son O. P. Sapp, besides several

MISS TUCKER RETURNED WEDNESDAY
It Is Believed That the Meeting
This Year Is Having More Ini-
lluence That the Bass-Staple-
Ion Meeting Last year
The protracted meeting, at the
Methodist church, still continues
with unabated interest. It was
the original plan for Miss Tucker
to be in Cairo but two weeks, but
so great has been the interest
and concern, and so many have
been helped by her impressive
Bible readings, and so many have
been brought into a 'deeper ex
perience of the Christian life, that
she has consented to postpone
her next meeting, which was to
begin this week, at Jennings,
Fla., and,continue here until after
While not disparaging the won
derful meeting that was held in.
Cairo last Sunday under the lead-,
ership of Messrs, Bass and.Staple-
tc n, the .. present series : of
services, has in many respect3
been more powerful and influen
tial, and its results, in some re
spects, have been greater. Be
lieving that the good' ■ work has
not been finished, and recogniz
ing the intense interest and con
cern on the part of many, Miss
Tuckar has willingly - consented 1
to remaiii in Cairo through next
