Paul Has ''Fought a Good
The home-coming of Edgefield
boys is always a season of great re
joicing, but the return of Mr. Paul
W. Gibson for a stay of ten days
with Mr. Geo. F. Minis has afforded
his old friend unusual pleasu-'e.
Since locating in Atlanta nearly a
dozen years ago, Paul has been
steadily promoted, his entire career
having been one of honor and last
ing credit to himself. Unlike some
Edgefield. boys who sought their,
fortunes elsewhere, he can say, with
Caesar," "Veni, vidi, v vici/" Tae
only thing we can say against Paul
is that he ought to' have brought a
Georgia girl along with him.
