Mr. Pollard is well and favorably known all over Monroe and Shelby counties as an honorable and first class business man He at one time edited the Stoutsville Banner and was owner and manager of Banner Telephone system of Stouts ville and is a brother-in-law to our cigar man, Adolphus Maddox. Mr. Pollard entered upon his duties Monday in a business like manner and with the assistance of a man like this the Gem ought to and will do a successful business as it has heretofore. Mr. Emerson has more business besides this than one man can successfully manage, is why he sold his interest in the Gem, not that he had to or that it did not pay. The Company re-organized with R. A. Kirby as General Man ager; A. S. Burch as Service Man ager; S. T. Pollard as Secretary and Treasurer. These men expect to devote most of their time to the motion picture business and you will note some, important changes in the running of same.

Merchant's Bank has just installed a new Harrigan safe which is without a doubt both fire and burglar proof. The body of the safe is one piece and the door is one piece with the lugs in terlocking, so when, the safe is lock ed there is no connection with the inside Hundreds of gallons of Nitro-glycerine have been used test ing this safe and it has had no effect on the body of the safe. After blowing off the outer mechanism the burglar would find himself no closer the money than when he started. This safe is abso lutely burglar proof as no burgler has ever fazed this safe or got into it any further than breaking off the hingea with nitro-glycerine which gets him no closer to the money than when he started. The safe is a beauty. Te weir Do well At 10 a. m. yesterday occured the marriage of Miss Dee Dowell and Loren Tewell at the residence of Sev. Fr.
