IGLE 1 THE TENNESSEE TIMES 1 CROSSVILLE CHRONICLE J CONSOLIDATED! 1895 VOL. XXXVI CROSSVILLE, TENNESSEE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1922. No. 14. KOSSVI STANDARD TO PUT IN SERVING STATION HERE: Plan to Be Ready for Business Within Ninety Dayi WithOffice and Tank Truck. Henry McMillin, of Harriman, and some other employees of the Standard Oil Company, were here last week seeking a location for establishing a serving station. Mr. McMillin closed a deal with Andy Elmore for a strip of land next to the Tennessee Central track where the hickory handle mill was and where J. 1. Rich at on time had ftis planing mill, on the edge of town. Mr. Mciiiiii.i first contracted for a purchase of the Deters stave mill sight from F. A. Loshbough, but it developed that the Pierpont-Paxton company has a lease on it for three years and declined to surrender their lease; hence Mr. McMillin was forced to seek another location. All in all the last location is much better for the city and none the worse for the company. When Mr. McMillin was seen by the editor of the Chronicle he stated that the deal had been closed, that the contract would be let at once and as sooii as the L,ui:dings and other equip ment was completed he would qpen business. He stated that it wotjluicaii be red.uced will represent several probably require ninety days to have everything ready for business. There will be an office and two tanks built aside from sheds and such other buildings as will be required for stor ing barrels and different kinds and grades of lubricating oils. John Reynolds, of Harriman. $ understood to have the contract 'or c'recting the tanks and buildinrj, it is understood that the Standa ftj has appropriated $13,000 for installing the plant. The Standard has pl?iCed Cross ville in the same class a.v Cookeville so far as the future outok jor DUSj. ne'ss goes . Numerous . persons -claim that the outlook, for growth and busi ness developmenti ts far better for Crossville than irJt any town between Nashville and rlnoxville'. There is no doubt that the future of Crossville is much brighter this time than ever be fore. SAV'KG TO UNCLE SAM ON AUTOMOBILE SERVICE Garage Rental Reduced from $30,000 to $18,000; Other Savings In Paint and Repair. As a result of the co-ordination among all departments using automo biles the expenditures for transporta tion and automobile service have been cut 50 percent under the direction of the budget system. When General Dawes turned his attention to the automobile service of (he various departments in Washing ton there were 945 government-owned motor vehicles in daily operation; these were housed in (x) separate gar ages, ranging in capacity from one car to 125 cars. A majority of these garages were privately owned and rented by the government. Since that time the number of motor ve hicles has been materially reduced without impairing in the least the service demanded by the various fed eral agencies in Washington. One by one the private garages have been re leased and the cars placed under gov ernmenf roofs. In the last three months the gar age rental bill of the government has heen reduced from 330,ooo to aio,ooo. In addition to this economy, all re pairs upon automobiles are now be ing done at the Washington navy yard and painting is being done by the war department, ine war uejiar ment is also furnishing repair parts for all makes of vehicles out of its ini-i1ll stocks'. This coordination in the automobile service of the government at Wash ington will save annually between $75,000 and $100,000 a year, accompan ied by a very appreciable increase in the efficiency of the service to all departments concerned.

FiNE BODY OF TIMBER TO BE MADE INTO CROSSTIES P. V. Wideaer & Son Purchase 126 Acre Tract of M. W. Morrow Estate for $4,200. P. V. Widener & Son have prchased from the M. W. Morrow estate 126 acres of land lying near Pomona Road that is generally accepted as being the best body of oak timber in the county. The purchase price is uuder stood to be $4,200. A side track is now being put in at '.lie property by the Tenessee Cen tral and Messers Widener will put in a saw mill and vvor kthe timber into crossties. The tract has been esti mated to prort--;, least 12.000 ties. 'J'rYin to "the favorable location and ihe lw nf the uround being very fav- orajole for logging, the expense of pro ducing the ties will be unusually low. This tract of land had been re served by Mr. Morrow for more than 50 years and carefully guarded from damage by fires while he used the utmost ?are in cutting timber from the tract to see that no valuable young oak should be removed. As a result a body of timber has grown up that is one of the marvels of tins section in point of excellence and Messers W:.idener are very fortunate in secur ing it. Attorney C. E. Keyes is handling the legal phaze of the mat ter for the parties interested. BAPTIST REVIVAL GROWING IN INTEREST Splendid Sermons by Rev. Creasman and Inspiring Singing by Mr. Cambron.

When it i is remembered that the Central of' Georgia is owned by the Illinois Cen tral and that the latter road would be tapped by this proposed line at Hodginsville, Ky., it becomes esay to understand why the road would ulti mately be extended to Louisville once it reaches Crossville. 11' . . .1 I'M. ... . 1 . . . . ... . .
