CAIRO, GRADY COUNTY, GEORGIA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 1911.
Concert Friday Night Was
PROGRAM DESERVED BETTER
Last Friday night, The Cairo
. Concert Band gave a splendid
. concert at the court House. Every
one who attended it spoke in
glowing terms of the magnificent
display of ease and practice in
playing the band showp by the (
boys. The music was simply'
grand and the fact that some
of it was Prof. Harlow’s own
production and had never been
played before, made at least part
of the audience feel that they
were being given a rare treat.
The program was one that
should have brought forth every
•man, woman and child in Cairo.
“Memento," is one Prof. Har
low’s best pieces. It, alone, was
worth the cost of admission.
Other pieces were almost as good
as it, especially the Grand Medley
Overture, “Round the World,"
The boys need not be discour
aged because the turn-out was
“not better. They will win over
i the stubborn ones yet. Such
« ’ 'concerts as one given last Friday
night, will appeal to even the
Plant Gins Both Long
The Grady Ginning Company
who have been erecting a long
and short cotton ginnery in Ea‘st
Cairo, have now finished it and
are doing splendid work thus, far.
This will be a great benefit to
the ‘farmers in Grady and should
be patronized by all.
A Card of Thanks.
We do earnestly thank the
Cairo people for their kindness
shown to us through the sickness
and death of our little darling.
Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Fitzgerald.
ALL POLL TOGETHER FOR
GRADY COUNTY’S FIRST
FAIR, OR PULL OUT.
The farmers;and business men
alike should exert every power
and all energy to make the coun
ty Fair the greatest success pos
sible. For much depends upon
the result of the county’s first
'effort at holding a fair.
Not only will each see what
his neigbor is doing and stimulate
friendly rivalry and there will be
a general exchange of ideas of
farming and a dislay of the prac
tical results of improved methods.,
but many home-seekers with
money to invest will be on hand,
also men looking for a business
location and perhaps those desir
ing to locate business enterprises
will be on hand.
We know Grady has resources
equal to th'e best anywhere; but
the display made will not only
show the fertility of the soil and
our n'aturaradvantages, but our
industrial and intellectual stand
ing will be judged by the display
made, and these' things will go a
long wayS toward causing a mau
to make up his mind in selecting a
home or launching an enterprise.
Whether we be members of the
Farmers' Union, bankers, law
yers or mej’chants, let’s all out
best to do justice by our grand

We hear that several large
sales of farm lands were made
last week, also a number of city
lbts changed hands. This, to
gether with the fact that several
contracts were let and dwelling
houses begun shows how great

superiority of this section is be

you can find it -.unequivocally

Questions like this have been
reaching the office:
“What do our dues go to. sup
port?" “What does the Con
ference Pledge mean?” A simple
explanation of each collection
should be given every member
who joins the Missionary Society,
and none should be induced to
join feeling that the ten cents a
month is all that will be expected.
These funds are:
Dues— for the Home Depart
ment, ten cents a month; total,
$1.20 per year. If the Society is
united, then ten cents per month
for the Foreign Department.
No one can really belong to the
Missionary Society without pay
ing these dues to one or the other
Department, and very few should
fail to belong to both.
Conference Expense Fund.—
This fund is raised for carrying
on the work in the auxiliary and
Conference Society. Each mem
ber is expected to pay 25 cents
per year for this purpose. Ten
cents of this is retained in the
local auxiliary to pay the ex r

Notice to Correspondents.
We again call the attention of
Correspondents and Contrib
utors of communciations to the
necessity of having their articles
in our hands, by Tuesday morn
ing. Numbers of communciations
have been crowded out, because
of failure to observe this notice-
Some communciations can be
carried over; but news items thus
dealt with would be too stale for
The Invariable Rule.
In all well-regulated printing
offices, there is an inflexible rale
that requires every communica
tion to be accompanied by the
name of some responsible person;
not necessarily for publication,
but for the protection of the
managing editor. In many cases,
such a rule would appear un
necessary; but if anonymous ar
ticles of a harmless character
were allowed, the same privilege
could be claimed for those of an
other character. Therefore, no
deviation from this universa
rule can be permitted. H,
