Report of Fourth District Convention
at Bullochville, Ga., May 12.
The three words that best express
the Fourth district meeting at Bul
lochville are—Enthusiastic, Successful,
Satisfactory. Every seat in the audi
torium at the school was tilled at both
the morning and afternoon sessions.
About seventy delegates were present,
and representatives from a few non-
federated cluos were so impressed that
they will federate as soon as their
clubs can be consulted. About two
hundred people were in the audience.
The State officers present were Mrs,
Z. 1. Fitzpatrick, our beloved president,
and Mrs. Trox Bankston, treasurer.
The Bullochville brass band met the
incoming train with their inspiring
music, and gave several numbers dur
ing the session. MiBB Mabel Bulloch’s
rendition of the beautiful song, “Let
Us Have Peace,” was thoroughly ap
preciated. Dr. Neal Kitchens’ address
of welcome was a gem of literature and
oratory. This was followed by Mrs. J.
O. Butts with a greeting from the
Civic Improvement Club, who were our
gracious hostesses. Mrs. Moreland
Zellars, of Grantville, made a most
beautiful response to their words of
greeting. Mrs. Fitzpatrick was, as
she always is, most helpful in her ad
dress on “Women’s Club Work. ” She
is so tactful and gentle and wise that
we feel it almost an impossibility for
anyone worthily to take her place.
Mrs. J. L. Bond, of Columbus, agri
cultural demonstrator for Muscogee
county, gave an instructive and illu
minating talk on “Soils,” and on the
girl’s canning clubs. Miss Kobelsper-
ger, superintendent of the Georgia
Training School for Girls, told of her
work and of the school. She was
listened to with rapt attention, and the
enthusiastic interest she aroused was
the most impressive incident of a day
full of good impresBionB. Her mag
netic and vigorous personality and her
earnest Christian viewpoint convinced
everyone that she was indeed the right
woman in the right place. .
A most beautiful luncheon was served
to over a hundred women by the Civic
Improvement Club at the Tuscawilla
Hotel, a handsome building recently
erected and equipped with all modern
The afternoon session was devoted to
club reports, each one of which was
well put together, and Bhowed splendid
work along the lines of education,
civics, literature, music, and welfare
work. Several reports were given
with so much quaint humor as to cause
continuous ripples of laughter from the
Mrs. Neal Kitchens, of Bullochville,
was unanimously elected to the presi
dency of the Fourth district. Mrs.
Harvey Nimmons, of LaGrange, was
elected secretary. Mrs. Mike Powell,
president, and Mrs. Paul Dismukes,
secretary, were the retiring officers.
At 6 o’clock, after the afternoon ses
sion, tea and sandwiches were served in
the park, which has been made beauti
ful by the women of the club. The
visitors were then given a motor ride
to Warm Springs, which is about a
quarter of a mile on one side of Bulloch
ville, and to the Government Fisheries,
which are about a mile on the other
side of the town. The cordial hospi
tality of its men and women will long
make the memory of Bullochville a
happy one to those who were so for
tunate as to be present.

Kidney Trouble Causes
Sixteen years ago I was taken sick
with kidney trouble and suffered terri
bly for thr e months. I did not work
during this time, and was mostly con
fined to the bed. After using other
remedies I finally tried a bottle of
Swamp-Root. I immediately began to
feel better, and after using seven 50-
cent bottles was entirely cured, and
have had no kidney trouble since. I can
truly say that I owe my good health to
Swamp-Root. You may publish thiB
letter for the benefit of other people
afflicted as I was with, the hope of
bringing to their attention this most
won. erful remedy.

Figures Tell the Tale
For the sake of satisfying some people who have got it into i
their craniums that Swint is losing out in the grocery busi
ness, I wish to submit a statement of my cash receipts for
the first four months last year and the first four months this
year, which is as follows—
March, - 2,142.00
April, - 2,208.00
March, - 2 453.00
April, - 2,684.00
The above figures are correct. You don’t have to lake our
word for it. Ask Cashier Goodrum, of the Newnan Banking
Co. We don’t put on much style, or cut as many scallops
as some of our competitors;—neither do we claim to have
the grocery business of Newnan sewed up, but we do claim
to be getting our share of it, as the above figures will show.
