Removal of Post Office.
Monday night after the close of
business Messrs. Mark Miller and
Watson Onzts, the faithful govern
ment employees, moved the post
office into the building on the cor
ner next door to the store of Mr. B.
B. Jones. The building is very
well adapted to housing; Uncle Sam's
business and it will be still better
suited to the needs of the post of
fice after some changes are made
later. For 30 years the people
have been getting their mails from
the building from which the office
has just been removed and it is still
probable that many persons while
in an abstracted frame of mind wil
go to the same old office from the
force of habit. The post offioe em
ployees are being commended for
moving the office without the
slightest interruption of business or
without inconveniencing the patrons
in the slightest degree. The build
ing heretofore occupied by the post
office will be somewhat remodeled
and used by Mr. J. D. Holstein,
Jr., as a display roora for Overland
automobiles, he being the local
agent for these popular cars.

a considerable distance and the land
of Mrs. Roper lies along the creek.
Mrs. Roper owns 149 ac? es and al

this back-water, which has been the
means of injuring the health of the
plaintiff's family and the tenants up
on the farm and asks damages in
the sum mentioned above. The
testimony was completed yesterday
afternoon and the jury will be taken
in automobiles this morning to in
spect or view the property.
This is one of a number of suits
that have been brought against the
Georgia-Carolina Power company
by property owners in that vicinity,,

both sides are contesting every inch
of ground. The plaintiff is repre
sented by J. Wm. Thurmond, B.
