For some time Mr. R. M. Winn has
carried an advertisement in our col
umns and also one in the McCormick
Messenger advertising for railroad
crossties. Since last November Mr.
Winn has bought more than 40,000
crossties for the C. & W. O. railroad,
all delivered at Plum Branch. This
has meant- the paying out of about
$30,000 in cash at Plum Branch for
crossties since last November. Mr.
Winn is a* good business man and he
has given his best efforts to this enter
prise since he began last fall. He says
the advertisements in The Advertiser
and the McCormick paper have help
ed him to swell the volume of his
business. He has, in fact, supplied the
C. & W. C. railroad with 60 per cent
of the ties it has brought since last
fall. Not only has Mr. Winn built up
a good business for himself, with pos
sibilities of great increase yet, but
the cross tie business has meant so
much to the people who have sold
them. The cash which has been paid
to them by Mr. Winn has helped many
to make tongue and buckle meet. '
