They voted to issue $40,000 worth of bonds to aid in building High Schools in our county. The State also aids every county which is willing to help itself. No one doubts the fact that High Schools are needed in Blount County, es pecially through the county districts Maryville ha good Fchools, why not other points in our county get the benefit of good schools the same as the children of Maryville. We need four Hifch Schools in the countv one for each section of the county, but this fund will hardly be adequate to meet this demand But this is a step in the right direction.

The 4th of July Rest Room The "Rest Room" established by the W. C. T. U. for the women and children who came to Maryville for .the 4th of July, was a grand success. Ice water, couches, baby beds and other conveniences were supplied, and greatlv appreciated by throngs of tired women and children. Thaniss are extended by those in charge o the Bank of Maryville for free use of their basement room, to the Maryville papers for free adver tising, to the two furniture stores and others for furniture loaned, and to all who so kindly assisted in the good work. E?q. J. T. Kinnick of the Clover Hill neighborhood in company with hli wife were visitors Monday. Bond Election Authorized The County Court on Monday took action in regard to issueing more bonds to finish our pikes and build more. They voted to issue $300,000 more bonds provided the voters of the county by a two-thirds majority ask for this to be done. An election in the future to be called for this purpose will determine the matter. It is now strictly up to the voters and tax payers to say what shall be done, and the advocates of good roads should get busy. Bought Truck W. L, Webster the" agent for the I. H. Co., motor trucks, has sold one of the latest model trucks to Williams Bro's, one of Maryville's enterprising milling firm3. This makes the third truck that Mr. Webster has eold this year. It will be u?ed in serving the partners of Williams Bros., in delivering flour meal ,and mill feed. In the near future no doubt many of oar busi ness men will adopt this mode of delivering their goods to their cus tomers. A fine Street On Tuesday evening Jthe editor of the Times in company with W L. Webster made a trip to the plant of the Aluminum Company of America in Mr. Webster's automo bile. We went out past the laundry and the store of Walker Johnson, out the new road which they are now macadamizing. This is one of the best pieces of road in Blount County, and the Aluminum Co., is doing all the work at thdir own ex pense. As we flew along the pike we could not help but think what a great change had taken place in the last few years. If we had been blind folded and taken out there in the dark, we would have hardly known where we were. Our people do not realize yet what an immense industry the Aluminum Company is, and they haye hardly commenced. to build yet. From a sleepy little home town of a few hundred inhabitants Maryville is now a hustling city of several thous and inhabitants and growing at a great rate. In five years we will have at least from 10,000 to 15,000 inhabitants. Eggers -Leather wood On last Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the home of the bride's mother occured the marriage of Miss Evadale Leatherwood and Mr. Roscoe Eggers. Rev. A. D.

JULY FOURTH A GREAT DAY The Day was Pleasant and Many were Present THE PERFECT ORDER Showed that John Barly corn and His Brood Were Absent July 4th 1914, has come and gone, and is now history. Mary ville celebrated in an old fashioaed way. The country folks were in vito d to visit us on that day, and ,they responded to the invitation. By day light the folks begun to arrive and it. looked like almost everybody in the county was here, Some say the crowd present was larger than the one here last year waile others say that there was not so many present. One of the interesting features of the day was the automobile parade, a $15 00 silver cup being offered by the J. N. Badgett Co , for the auto decorated the nicest. This cup was won by the First National Bank. The President Hon. T. N. Brown, representing Uncle Sam, sat in the auto and scattered litera ture in regard to the new bank. The machine was driven by Miss Gray Webb, and owned by her father J. H. Webb. This was one of the prettiest decorations we have ever seen. All were nice, and those interested deserve great credit for the effort made to capture the beautiful prize. The day was spent in watching the various contests, visiting the places of amusement and a general good time. The boys foot race was won by Ernest McCulloch, son of Trustee Wm. McCulloch, prize a watch given by A. E. McCulloch. The race for colored boys was won by a boy named Kennedy, the son of Prof. Frank Kennedy, this prize also a watch given by A. E. Mc Culloch.

Impure blood runs you down makes you an easy victim for disease. For pure bbod and sound digestion Burdock Blood Bitters. At all drugstores. Price $1.00, Fire At Gem Theatre On Monday night fire broke out in the building occupied by the new picture show, H A. Ragle & Co., Proprietors. This building has just been fitted up with new seats and fixtures in fact it is yet unfinished but when done will be one of the i.icest picture show builds gs to be found any where. Tie fire brke out at the steps uspd to go up on the platform .near where the sheet is erected. It burnt the steps some of the columns and damaged the paper. Extent of damage about $200. Opinion is divided as to cause of fire some think it was of incendiary origin while others think it was caustd by the electric wires. This fire if it had gotten started would have caused the whole North side of Main Street from McKinney 's Store to the Times Office corner, and possibly more. No telling where it would have stopped. The incen diary idea is conceived from the fact that the wires had not been used during the day, and the rooms swept clean and no fire anywhere. It is said the fire was discovered and extinguished by men from the Aluminum Co., who quit work in the night the fore part of the night shift. It took some time to extin guish the flames. Maryville should by all means have a night watchman The town is too large to remain with out one any longer. The class of peopie are continually changing and the criminal element will come here seeking work. Give us a watchman before our homes and places of business are de stroyed by fire and broken into. The officers are investigating and we hope if any one is guilty of so foul an act they will be caught and severely punished, Spena your vacation at Famous Alleghany Spriugs. the Open Air Meeting The union open air meeting will be conducted from the band stand, on Main street, next Sunday night at 7:30. Rev. H. S. Lyle, the local Presbyterian pastor will preach Special music is being prepared for the service. Blount County Boy Meets With Great Success We copy the following from a letter written us by Rev. George H. Lowry, a Blount County boy who has gone out into the world and met with great success, in his work that of the christian ministry. We had the pleasure of attending school at Maryville College, where George graduated. The letter is self ex planatory : Pueblo, Colorado, June 29, 1914. Mr. Clyde Goddard, Publisher Times, Maryville, Tenn. Dear Mr. Goddard: I am sending vou two dollars on my subscription for the Mary ville Times and will ask you to please change my address from Perrysburg, Ohio, to 924 East Eighth St. Pueblo Colorado. I have recently come here to this flourishing western city which is al most in the shadow of famous old Pike's Peak to take charge of the Park Avenue Presbyterian church, a large an 1 flourishing church. I served the First Presbyterian Church of Perrysburg for ten years, and when I came to leave the people voted unanimously not to accept my resignation, and even appealed to the Presbytery to not allow me to go. However I thought it best to make a change. Please see to it that you get my correct address for I do not like to miss any copies of the good old Times which always seems like a letter from home, and from Blount Co. the best place on earth. Much success to yt u Very truly yours, George H, Lowry. Real Estate Transfers Chas, M. Rooerts et al to Mrs. A. B. Cummings", lot in 10th dist for $35. G. P. Adams et ux to Chas.
