Expository in the most complete detail of the great historic event the edition commemorates, the issue in its entirety presents a mechanical mastercraft as well as a comprehensive production of journalism which justifies the eminence attained by your paper as one of the highest order in the rank of the weekly journals of the South.

It was a hot day, the air was close in the photographer's studio, the perspiration was running in rivulets from the hairless dome of the editor. "W.O." did his darndest [dandiest] to smile and the picture here is the result. Photo by Paul M. Taylor.
