Zaring Grain & - Mill Co. The citizens of almost every town, and of the County also do not generally " give proper en- couragement and praise to the commercial enterprises, located in their town. Right here in Rich mond is an enterprise the magni tude of which probably half of the citizens of the town and coun ty are not aware.. We, refer to the J. W. Za'ring Grain & Mill Co., one of the big gest and strongest commercial enterprises in the cou nty. The daily output ot this company is two hundred and fifty barrels of flour a day, besides hundreds of bushels of meal. The product of this mill is classed as Al, and is shipped to hundreds of points in Kentucky, most of it however, going to the eastern section of the state. Within the last few days they received orders for seven carloads of flour, meal and ship stuff from as many firms. The company employs about twenty men, operating a day and night shift The men employed get paid every Saturday evening and most of the money- is spent with home merchants. Thus you see that business is largely, or should be, co-operative, therefore it is the duty of each citizen to lend encouragement to every en terprise tending to upbuild the town newspapers included. The Dixie Minstrels The "hit" of the season was. the Dixie Serenader Minstrels seen and heard at the Opera House Wednesday and repeated by re quest on Thursday evening. With an all-star-cast and such soloists as Keller, Nelson, Bax ter, Green, Elder j Adams, Hicks, Bowman and Wiggins, it was a notable entertainment for Rich mond opera goers. Indeed the stage sitting, cos tumes and acting generally would have done credit to AI G. Fields and his" knights of color. Mr. George presided most gracefully as "middle man" while Messrs. Green and Nelson distinquished themselves as end men by their ready wit and laughable antics. Mr. Wm. Elder was one of the starriest "stars," his dancing and singing being characterized by the ease of an old stager, in fact the entire performance was par excellence and Richmond is to be congratulated on having such a number of talented young men. The entertainment closed with three excellent pictures making an evening of pure enjoyment. -oo- Sudden Illness Mrs. Million, wife of W. J. Mil lion, merchant at Hockaday, was here Friday shopping. She left the store in charge of. her 17-year old daughter and when she ar rived here a telephone message informing her that the young woman in charge of the store had become suddenly ill and had to be carried to the home of her parents. The message did not state the nature of the illness. ' -oo- New Firm Mr. Harris Park has bought the interest of Mr. D. H.
