IAKE PATRIOTIC MOVE.
Will Endeavor to Buy Site of Star
Fort to Preserve Revolutionary
GreeAoodl. Nov. 1.-The members
ihe Star Fort chapter. Daughters
of the Revolution, here have inaigni
rated a most patriotic and commen1
able move. The site of the old Slar
Fort, embraced in a tract of laid com
prising 17 acres, is to be sold here
Monday, Nov. 4. The sale is that of
the lands of the estate of the late E.
S. Addison. The ladies want to buy
the site of the old fort to preserve it
and in time restore it to its original
shape and form. They have no need
for the 17 acres and if they succeed
in purchasi:ng the parcel of land, they
will sell 14 1-2 acres, retaining two
and a half arres. They will need help,
but it is certain that there are a suf
ficient num'ber of patriotic and chival
rous men here to aid them in so
wort.hy a cause. This is one of the
notaible historie spots in the state and
should be preserved for the future.
