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

way. The country folks were in

,they responded to the invitation.

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,

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

not claimed by any one.
The crowd although large was
very orderly, and good natured.
Booze, which is at the bottom of
nearly all trouble was conspiciously
absent and its effect was not visible
during the day.
Much credit is due J H. Mitchell
and others who went to the trouble
to get up the celebration. He was
assisted by the Board of Trade.
Maryville cannot afford to not have
a celebration every year.

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,

Famous Alleghany Spriugs.

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.
