Because of the particularly attractive
picture to be shown the theatre will
open earlier than usual, in order that
everybody may have an opportunity to
see it. Ihe Strand has just been deco
rated throughout, and Mr. Blalock, who
had the work in charge, pronounces it
the best job of the kind that he ever
turned out. In reality it should be
called the "theatre beautiful.” Here
you will see each day the very beat

Mrs. G. W. St. John, the efficient
president of the league, gave a brilliant

was this report, showing the good work

and social endeavor, that several ladies

interesting meeting Wednesday after

ed.—Durham (N. C.) Sun.

The patrons of The Halcyon theatre
were congratulating Mr. Leres Tuesday
on his splendid selections of World Film
pictures. In "The Pit” the scenes from
first to last were beautiful, and finished
in every detail. The Wheat Exchange at
Chicago wsb a most instructive scene,
and it is such pictures as "The Pit’
that have given motion pictures their
present hold upon the public.
Mrs. J. T. Kirby was hostess this
week for the Tuesday Afternoon Bridge
Club, at her home on Temple avenue.
Several extra guests were entertained

sanitary in every particular, well
vhhtilated and comfortable. Mr. Colley,
the proprietor, has shared neither time
nor money in his determination to give
the people of Newnan everything
they could wish in a picture theatre,
and after a visit to The Strand we
feel certain you will appreciate his
efforts. Not only has the theatre
been thoroughly equipped for your com
fort and pleasure, to the minutest de
tail, but Mr. Colley has selected his em
ployees with unusual care. They are
courteous, attentive, the kind of
people to whom you can entrust your
children. Get The Strand habit. It
will do you good.
Newnan Will Have Baseball Again
At a meeting of the directors of the
Georgia-Alabama League, held here
yesterday, Griffin was awarded the Sel
ma franchise for a cash consideration,
and the league was reorganized on a
six-club basis, with the following cities:
Griffin, LaGrange, Newnan, Rome, An
niston and Talladega. The league
adopted a 60-day playing season, to open
May 6, and a salary limit of $75 a
month, including manager. The player
limit was fixed at twelve men, the same
as last season. The president was au
thorized to have a schedule drafted.
The league as it now stands is more
compact than last season, and mileage
expense is greatly cut.
With the dropping of Selma and the
addition of Griffin, Newnan enjoys the
distinction of being the “hub” of the
circuit, and for this reason should finish
the season successfully. A keen rivalry
has already been established with La-
Grange, and now Griffin becomes
competitor in the three-cornered race.
The jump to Talladega will be broken
by games with Rome and Anniston en

Missionary Conference at LaGrange.
At a meeting of laymen and pastors,
held at LaGrange on the 10th inst., to
which all ihe pastors of the Western
Association were invited, it was agreed
to try to put on in our association what
is eailed ihe layman’s team work. It is
a work in which some earnest, active
laymen go to the various churches on
their meeting days and talk about the
work of the kingdom. Being laymen,
they can appeal strongly to our laymen.
Of course, they cannot go to a church
that does not want them, and will not
invite them. So, if you would like to
have them visit your churches, you
must write the chairman of the group
of churches to which your church be
longs and ask that he arrange to have
the laymen come to your church, and
indicate the time you would like. It
would be well to have them come on
your regular meeting day, have it well
advertised, and plan for an all-day
meeting. These meetings would put
new life into our association. No col
lections are to be taken, but informa
tion and inspiration will be brought
which will help all the church work.
We hope that we can, through this
team work, visit all our churches possi
bly before our State Convention. This
work can begin at any time arrange
ments are made for it. The women
workers in the association are invited
also to attend at these meetings and
encourage the sisters in the Master’s

The stomach is the fuel box of
the “human motor.’'. Food well di
gested supplies the material that
keeps the furnace fired up, and
physical energy sustained.
Did you ever see a big battery of
dynamos at work, supplying electri
cal energy that moves great lines of
railways, and lights great cities, and
stop to think how powerless they
would be if the great generator was
not fed the proper fuel ?
Suppose the engineer would say,
“All this coal I am using is costing
entirely too much; I must econo
mize and use less of it, or else get a
much cheaper kind.” And what if
he did; what would be the results?—
lights would flicker and go out, trol
ley cars would grind along slowly,
or probably stop still altogether.
You see there would not be the
proper ENERGY; an so it is with
the human stomach. You cannot
cheat it, and expect it to keep on
supplying the same energy. Now,
of all times, this stomach of yours
needs undiminished nourishment.
You must have a strong body, and
a clear brain; because an adjust
ment to new conditions makes larg
er drafts on brawn and brain. You
cannot have sharp wits on an eco
nomical stomach, or tense muscles
with an under - nourished body.
Meat is one of the greatest of all
tissue builders; one of the greatest
of all fuels to keep the human fire
box energized. Our Western meats
are full of just the energy and nour
ishment you need. Fresh, firm,
prime and delicious. Direct your
methods of economy if you must,
but don’t include your meat bill—
