The Collegians are expected to ar
rive in the city this afternoon and

game, which is to be called at 8
o'clock, should be one of the hottest

Concord* stock has been boosted
by the addition of four collegiate
stars, all of whom will be in action
at one time or another during the
course cf the evening. The regular
Y team will be on hand to do the
major part of the playing, however.
It is expected that a large delega
tion of Kannapoiis fans will be pres
ent to watch the collegians. The
Kannapolis gym was used Monday
night for practice and the Lutherans
made such an impression that it is
probable that a large number of fans
will journey down for the match.
No announcement has been made as
to the choice for starting the game to
night against Lenoir. The following

THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE
HUNDRED YEAR OLD
PAPER EXHIBITED HERE
Georgia Journal of Miiledgeville In
teresting Document.—Doctors and
A newspaper of much interest,
Chiefly on account of itA great age,
has recently been brought to the
Times-Tribune office. Thgp publica
tion is the Georgia Journal, dated
June 14, 1825. printed in Milledge
Miiledgeville was at that time the
capital of' Georgia and the paper is
full of official documents. The edi
tor in tgcplaining says: "We are again
pressed for room. Our paper is filled
with documents. The people will
read them, we have no doubt, with
attention." . /
Most of tlie documents have t« do
with a recent disturbance' In that
state between the white people and
the Creek Indians. It seems that
a Gen. Mclntosh and other friendly
chiefs of the Creek nation were mur
dered and that a state of armed hos
tility existed at the time of the pub
lication of The Journal.
Outside of the advertisements,
there is little else in the paper. The
ads., however, are more interesting
than the long and tedious documents.
Doctors should take note of the'
following notice which would be un
ethical today: “Dr. T. Gildersleevo
respectfully informs the inhabitants of
Clinton and its vicinity, that having
lately established himself in the for
mer place, he now offers his services
ns a physician and surgwn. and he
h< pea tliar by unremitted attention
to his business he may merit a share

sortment of well selected drugs and
medicines will constantly be kept on
Here is the way the lawyers adver
tised : "The subscriber having resumed
the practice of tjie law and settled
himself in the county of Walton,
tenders his services to the public.
He will practice in the counties of
DeKalb, Gwinnett, Clark. Walton,
Morgan, Jasper. Jones, Laurens.
Twiggs and l’ulaski.”
(Signed) THOMAS IV. HARRIS.
The only store which advertises is
a small notice from a firm which de
clares that it has recently removed
from its old store and “is now open
ing a very general and handsome as
sortment of goods, suitable for the
spring and summer season, which will

Lotteries were also very prominent
at that time. One is giving away
a grand total of SIBO,OOO the first
prize of which is $30,000 the second
prize is $20,000 and four prizes are
given of SIO,OOO each. Tickets are
purchased at $lO each.
An odd ad. is the one headed:
I “Miiledgeville Baths.” It states that
"this establishment is. now undef the
management of the subscriber.-Kvlio

to deserve the confidence and the pat
ronage cf the public. Prices as here

Kannapolis Boy Attains Success in
FtorMa.—Admits Desire to Enter
v Into Wedlock.—Central Figure
, (BY JAZZY MOORE)
Kannapolis. Dec. 30.—Georgia has
itp StriMing! Ilino;s has it Grange!
Kanno]«dts and North Carolina have
their Clyburn! All concerned, are
sensational money-making lads of to
But the one that extremely Interests
Kannapolis people Is the last named,
Arthur "Bubbles" Clyburn. Like a
page from the-famous Horatto Algier
novels reads his rapid rise to' success.
Six months, just one half of a year
ago, he was a penniless boy. Now
meet Professor "Bub", as he is known
in the land of sunshine. He is head
designer of the Kkirida Safety Ser
vice System, covering the entire l State
of Florida. In 1924 be was attending
school here and working afternoons
painting show card signs. His initia
tive and energy attracted attention
and in eariy '23 the card writing ace
was made business manager of the
newly established Moose-Olyburu-Scch
ler l’aintiug Shop. Then hard luck
came, the concern went its way of all
bankrupted stocks. He • lost all his
money that he had invested. And
hyre's the real punch in this story.
When ilisHster met him. when the in
vading crimes of suffering and failure
marched their troops through his soul,
he met the enemy smiling, he went
down without whining. ~
On borrowed money Clyburs made
his way to Georgia, and thence to
Florida. He finally sins-ceded in se
curing work aa a_he)p hand for the
Safety Service System. Gradually he
sped by the_experieneed eighteen to
twenty years men in his desire to
reach the top perch. Just six months
fater his ambition was realised. To
day thousands pay a fortune
to be in Professor Bub's shoes.
Clyburn is single, according to his
own admision, wants to get marriqd
and is attempting to reconcile matri
mony with card writing.
Designedly or otherwise, the net re
sult is that the Professor Bub is kept
very much before the public's eye.
Mr. Clyburn is spending a few of
the Christmas holidays with his pur
euts. Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Clyburn on
Church street. He will return to Or
lando. his headquarters, about the first
of next week.
