What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Demorent i s a little town of some $110 pomdation. situated in liabersham County, among the foot -hula of the Blue Ridge Mts. It Was laid out by a large company stone 25 years ago with the expectation that it would become a health resort center, with several industrial planta. Hut Ii proj-t ha ye partially aueeeeded. There are many people living here because of the health- ful conditions -climate, mineral water, good elevation, etc., Among the indus- tital enterprises we have a large Sail - die -tree plant, a broom tawtory, the Demoreet Novelty NVorks. a foundry and repair shop, fruit -crate manufac- turing. But with the exeeptimi of th Saddle -tree Factory, ..not a large num- ber men are employed. There are some 20 places of busines of all kinds including professions. Titer ate six generil stores, each handlin about the same line of goods, and noe with a complete stock. The businei of the town needs organization. The alio need a newspaper. They Ave good job printing plant. We hay. ‘vater•worka and it good electric ugh plant also telephones. The thing that makes the town, how ever, is the college, which also conduct the work of the High-school (Academy and the grades. The Dean of the Col lege le the town Supt. of *hoots Domestic Science and Manual training are a part of the regular work. There are ISOM tbarty teachers and asais tante in all departments of the school. , The total enrollment, including grade , and College, is close to 5.00 per year some of these go but a part of th year -a very small part. There ia a. compulsory school law in Georgia, bu we are after one. Even minister a the Southern Methodist and Baptis eommunions have quite commonly op- posed education.
