over securing a large spoke
factory which will begin ope
ration at an early date
Mr B P Fuquay of Indi
ana who has for the past
year been running a large
sawmill near Alton has made
many efforts to locate here and
put in operation a large saw
mill and factory for the manu
facture of spokes rims and
possibly hubs and we would
like to ask the name of a busi
ness man in the city who has
done anything to encourage
his coming The locating of
such a plant here would mean
that many men would be given
employment the building of
many houses in which they
could live the trade of many
people of other counties who
would bring timber to the
rfmills an increase in business

Carl Gaines
and an increase in the popula
tion of our city
What have you done Mr
Merchant and Mr Property
owner to secure this enter
prise
It has not been more than
ten days since Mr Fuquay
came to us asking that we as
sist him in getting a suitable
site for his plant and if you
will permit we will give his
exact words I come to you
because you people are the on
ly ones in the town who seem
to take any interest in its wel
fare and progress
Merchants business men
and propertyowners why will
you sit holding your hands and
permit strangers to come here
and make such statements to a
poor fifty cent newspaper
man Come on Lets not

towns just like this
Rip Van Winkle was a
lucky man and so was Ben
Montgomery of McBrayer I
last Thursday when judges
J W Shouse and J M Bird
i whistell had finished counting
the 552 handkerchiefs which
Montgomerys good judgment
told him was in G B Haw
kins Cos show window
Many guessing contests have
been held by the merchants of
the city but none of them ev
er attracted so much attention
as did this one All were well
pleased when it was learned
that Mr Montgomery was the
man to wear the 25 suit of
tailormade clothes The
smallest guess made was 65
and the largest 2200
Goes to Frankfort
Mr A E Heller who has
for the past two years had
charge of the tailoring depart
ment at the G B Hawkins
Co store leaves this week to
accept a position with Cassell
Co the tailors at Frank
fort During his stay here
Mr Heller made a host of
friends and while they are
all glad to learn of his secur
ing such an enviable position
with a house which has such a
wide reputation as Cassell
Co we can not but regret his
leaving As a cutter and gar
ment maker it is safe to say
that he never had an equal in
this city and there is little
doubt but what much trade
will follow him to his new
place if business
There are between twenty
five and thirty people among
our subscribers who have had
ten weeks to hand us the fifty
cents they said they would
hand in ifwc would place
their names on the mailing
list They knew at the time
that it is the rule of all well
regulated newspapers that all
subscriptions must be paid in
advance but we violated our
rule for them and have been
sending them IT each week
Have you made good the prom
ise you made us in regard to
paying for it It has even
come to our ears that some of
those who are thus reading
our paper have said that we
could not last if we charged
only fifty cents a year for IT
and to those we will say that
were all of our readers getting
it on the same terms as you
100
you would be quite right in
making the assertion that we
could not last We do not
want to force our paper on any
one and we have decided to
extend the time of those who
have not paid their subscrip
tions two weeks and if you
have not paid by then we will
take it that you do not want
IT and take your name from
our list
