Mr. E. B. Townsend
Buried At Climax
Of interest to many of the older
residents of the county was the news
of the death of Mr. Eugene Bennett
Townsend, a former resident of this
place, which occurred at the home of
the deceased in Climax on Thursday
night of last week after an illness of
Mr. Townsend was sixty five years
old at the time of his death. He was
a son of Capt. H. P. Townsend and
w^s born on the old Townsend place
out West of Camilla, growing up to
manhood here. He was married to
Miss Janie Curry and moved to Cli¬
max where they reared a large family
and spent their married life. Mr.
Townsend was elder in the Presbyter¬
ian church there for a number of
years and a very godly and influential
man in his community.
Funeral services were held at Cli¬
max Friday afternoon, conducted by
Dr. Ward, Presbyterian pastor of
Bainbridge, assisted by Rev. W. A.
Huckabce, of Sylvester, brother-in
of the deceased.
Surviving Mr. Townsend are his
and several children, and also
sisters, Mrs. Moore and Mrs. H.
King, of Macon, Mrs. Norman Hen¬
of Quitman, and Mrs. W. A.
of Sylvester, and one bro¬
Mr. J. F. Townsend, of Quit

Gaulden Bros., local grocers, are
their two stores this
week and hereafter will operate one
store at the Scott street location. The
stock of goods in the We-Have-It
store on Broad street is being moved
this week. This concern will have in
the consolidated store probably the
largest stock of groceries carried by
any concern in the county.
At Swimming Pool
Mr. C. F. Brimberry has recently
had a force of workmen make con¬
siderable improvements to the build¬
ing which houses the Camilla swim¬
ming pool. The changes will give
better accommodations to those who
patronize this resort. The mere men¬
tion of a swimming pool at this time
is likely to give one a chill, hut in a
few months it will be one of the most
popular places in town.

' Junior Music Club
Met January 20
The Junior Music Club had a de¬
lightful and interesting meeting on
Wednesday afternoon, January 20, at
the home of Helen Deans on Broad
street. The life and works of the
composer, Beethoven, was entered in¬
to with interest and in connection
with the study an enjoyable program
was carried out. Mrs. D. V. Thomp¬
son favored the club with a vocal solo,
which they much enjoyed. Alice
Brinson’s piano solo, a selection from
Liszt, was also much appreciated, as
were the readings by Margaret Ma¬
ples and Elsie Palmer. After the
program delightful refreshments were
served by the hostesses.
CAMILLA GIRLS ENTERTAINED.
The Camilla girls, including several
of their friends, were entertained in
a most unusual manner on Saturday
evening, January 23, from eight
thirty until ten thirty o’clock by Miss¬
es Christine Einstein, Martha Perry
and Bess Cochran.
The form of the entertainment was
most odd, being that of a fault party.
The misarrangement of the room pro¬
duced an. atmosphere of fault itself,
and the guests jotted down the faults
they perceived in tne room, the one
guessing the greatest number of
these receiving a prize, which was
won by Miss Nellie Kate Duncan.
During the first game a hat was
passed around, which contained slips
of paper with the guests names on
them. Each person drew a name and
in n limited time they sketched off
the most prominent faults concerning
the person, whose name they drew.
Thpn an individual unconcerned in
the affair was called in to read out
the faults of each of*the guests. Each
one was very intent to know their
faults and their suspense was almost
beyond endurance, although when
their names had been called and their
faults read aloud they all said they
would profit by the advice and endea¬
vor awfully hard to correct these
faults or errors in their character.
So now a campaign is on to see which
one is able to correct their faults first.
After several games of this man¬
ner in which each concealed a fault,
to be revealed, the guests were furth¬
er amused by several humorous read¬
ings given by Miss Martha Moore,
About ten o’clock delightful re¬
freshments were served, which -con¬
sisted of sandwiches and cold drinks.
Those present were Misses Elma
Wade, Jimmie Florence, Mabel Riteh
er, Jo Thetis Smith, Ruth Stevens,
Maggie Griner, Nellie Kate Duncan,
Nannie Sue Kirbo, Jessie Scruggs,
Nottyle Hogg, Mary Lou Renfroe and
The girls are regaining their pep
for spring is coming, and final Exams,
have been completed.

Camilla girls and the entii-e student

ENTERTAIN BRIDGE CLUB.
Misses Evelyn Perry and Virginia
Wade were joint hostesses on Thurs¬
day evening of last week at the home
of Miss Wade on South Scott street,
when they entertained in quite an en¬
joyable way for the members of their
bridge club and several young men
friends. Vases of paper white nar¬
cissus made effective decorations in
the rooms thrown open to the guests.
Bridge proved a popular diversion
throughout the evening. The prize
for high score for the girls was cap¬
tured by Miss Martha Acree, and the
men’s by Mr. T. B. Twitty, Jr. Prize
for lowest score for the girls went to
Miss Louise Palmer, and for the men

After the games a delicious salad
course was served, followed by a
