WE feel that we are indeed fortunate in
being able, to announce this truly remark
able story for serial publication in this paper.
It is a stirring story of the Mexican revolution in which this
portrayer o? western character has painted vivid pictures of the
scenes of carnage in war-infested-Mexico; the plight of
American refugees in border towns; the wantonness cf both
tire Mexican federal and revolutionary troops, and in fact gives
a graphic and truthful description of present conditions and all
through the medium of a po wai ul story. Mixed with the hair

SOUTHERN RY. RE-TRACKING
1 have been requested by Mr. J. J.
Fratwell to bring: to your attention
the fact thut the Board of Directors of
the Southern railway meet in Wash
ington June 3rd to discuss the mat
ter of re-tracking, or rather double
tracking their main line between
Greenville and Gainesville. He sug
gests and urges that a committee
should be sent to Washington to
place before the directors there the
matter of'diverting this second track
via Anderson, ar was suggested at
our annual meeting by our chairman.
Mr. Hammett. He also suggests ?md
requests that I bring to your atten
tion tho advlr-lbllity at the same time
of advising the Southern officials that
Anderson stands ready to do all pos
sible to secure completion of the
Blue Ridge. As it is now probuhly too
late to send a reprei.entative to Wash
ington or to get a letter there, I have
written out a tentative, telegram in
the matter. Such is only placed be
fore and not even suggested or rec
ommended. It is u matter of such
importance as to cati for great con
FINANCES. ETC.-I have changed
the plan of work in the office by doing
away with a stenographer, doing
that work myself and employing a
young man as assistant, who will al
so collect. By this method we save
the cost of collecting, a pretty con
siderable sum, and I believe the new
plan is best. Our fund for this cur
rent year ls approximately 15,000.00,
Including $300.00 rrom the Duke In
terests,'which we have BO far not se
cured. I Wc are operating on less
money than last year, or about $350.00
per month, which is based on a col
lected fund of about $4.100.00. which
is very small for a city of this size.
If we continue the traffic department
lt will add approximately $900.00 to
this, of which $600.00 will be salary
and the balance traveling expenses,
etc., which would make a total oj
$5,000,44 or just about exactly what
our fund is. and we would, therefore,
have to have 100 per eent. collection?
to get through. As above stated, 1
suggest that we continue a paid traf
fic manager, certain concerns should
increase subscriptions sufficiently to
cover at least 50 to 75 per cent, of thia
expense, otherwise I do not see where
we will havo the money to continue
that department. We have collected
so far about CO per cent, of the first
half of dues due, and are now start inp
out to collect the balance, which
should carry us to September 1st,
when we will call for the second half
We have naturally had heavier expen
ses during the first months than we
will have later, due to the annual
meeting, payment of Mr. Rothrock'e
salary during the first months on
double . pro-rata basis, etc. It will
take close sailing and good collections
to keep within the fund not including
the traffic work, which has so far
specifically touched only a few,
though, of'course, the general good
has been great. There are still quite
a number Of persons who have not
been eeen in the membership cam
paign, which was never completed
due to so many other things taking up
our time and attention.' In fact foi
thc last 90 days the secretary has put
in three-quarters of his time solicit
ing money on one thTdgT-: or another.
We still have one more big rolirltfng
campaign to pall off. which will take
a lot of time and the closest attention.
