Text from News-Article


Lets Have a Grand Celebration.

At the meeting of the subscribers to the tobacco warehouse stock, held last Thursday morning, R. J. Cobb, J. B. Cherry, C. W. Priddy, H. Skinner, J. A..K. Tucker, J. W. Allen, J. R. Williams, O. L. Joyner and G. F. Evans were elected as a Board of Directors. A call was made for the first payment on stock and the Directors were vested with authority to select the site and have work on the building commenced as early as possible. The warehouse will be completed in good time for sales this fall. The REFLECTOR suggests that a celebration be held the day on which ground is broken for the warehouse, that all the people come together on that day and have a grand time in honor of the occasion. What say the Board of Directors and citizens of the town?
