The Annual Trade Review
Savannah Morning News
Through inadvertency, the
messenger who brought in our
forenoon mail, on the date of
the issue of the Savannah paper
named in our caption, failed to
lay that number on our private
table. Thus it escaped our ob
servation until too late for proper
and merited notice, in our last
week’s edition. But, feeling, as
we do, that such a magnificent
exhibition of enterprise on the
part of its publishers ought to
receive due encomiums from even
the humblest of its contemporari
es, we give voice to our senti
ments, even at the eleventh hour.
That edition of the News, con
sisting of sixty-eight pages, all
brimful of matter, many profuse
ly illustrated and each replete
with information of value to
thousands of readers in three
states, is doubtless greatly ap
preciated, in every quarter of
the land into which the wide
circulation of the paper extends.
People who have been accus
tomed to regard Savannah as an
dolcefar niente sort of shade-
lazy, sprawling town, will be a
mazed (as many already have
been) if they will only read the
evidence furnished on those teem
ing pages of the up-to-date busi
ness enterprise and activity, as
well as the thrift and prosperity
of that truly charming and ir
many respects typical old South
ern city. Let them read, for in
stance, such figures as follow

its work in the first degree and
if you don’t believe it just drop
around and try it sometime, or
watch them on the job and you
can see that it is work and hard
work, yet they have done all this
and they have given free concert
after free concert on the streets.
They always have a good crowd.
Now, what about their pay con
certs, have they had the crowd?
No, they have not and it is a
shame tnat they haven’t. If
some moving picture show or
some Mr. Speaker, or some cheap
filthy circus were to cotoe along,
then what about it? Would
they go, why, certainly they
would go and talk the rotten
jokes and such for six months
afterward. Yet when some clean
bunch of home boys work hard
and get up something refined and
nice, that is fit for both young
and old to see. and hear, they
will have about two dozen out to
hbarthem. Is it right? No, and
ypu know it, then what makes
you do it? Let me toll you what
let’s do. The boys are going to
give us the best concert we have
ever had right here at the court
house Friday night. Now let’s
clear our conscience by getting
together and being on hand, they
promise something and offer the
same inducement as any other
show that you- ever went to.

refund your money.” .

which lessens the demand for the
helpful things of life, which in
creases their cost and diminishes
the ability to pay for them?
COMING TO GRADY.
Mr. J. J.
The Band boys made a hard
fight for life, but failed after all;
they have been struggling for
three years now trying to pay for
their instruments and keep their
teacher and incidentals paid up
as they went along and they
have done fine work.
Their instruments cost them to
date about $1,200. and with the
exception of about $100. they are
all paid for, but in the meantime
they had to dispose of their piano
to meet a note that had fallen
due. The boys pay out each
month $60. for a teacher and
about $15. for rent and other
running expenses, making a cost
of about $75. each month to keep
going; this has to be paid by
about fifteen boys, costing them
$5. and upward each month to pay
actual running expenses besides
the payments that come due on
their instruments every few
The people of Cairo have help
ed them some, they have made a
little away at other places, and
the farmers have paid them some
and of course they have done
right well with their concerts
that they have had along at times,
but just stop and think for a
minute what these energetic boys
have done for Cairo, they have
not only paid out their hard-earn
ed money for teachers, etc., but
they have done the work, have
met once and twice every week,
hot or cold, rain or shine, sick or
well and backed themselves up
against a hard chair and blowed
with all‘their might for three or
four hours at a time, now don’t
and get'to the $»'

don’t get liberal and^hfe°p the
boys out, they cannot keep going,
so, now let’s all be generous with
ourselves and them, toq, and do
all, we can to keep the band go
ing. You may not think so but
if the band go busted, you would
miss it and miss it bad.
Don’t be a> “Tight Wad” any
longer; limber up and come out
to the concert or call Wh. some
time and drop a dollar or two in
the hat to help the boys. They
need it and will appreciate it . J
