M.G. Melton Buys A. Turner Brick Bldgs.

   A transaction of much interest to the people of Ray City and surrounding  community is that in which Mr. M. G. Melton of Hahira purchased the two large brick buildings known as the Andrew Turner Buildings.  One of the buildings is two stories high and the top floor is needed for the telephone exchange.
     The bottom floor will be converted into an up to date moving picture theatre.  The adjoining building will be remodeled inside and a fresh line of merchandise put in.
    This transaction will mean much to the commercial life of Ray City and will afford local amusements for our citizens.
    The Ray City News takes great pleasure in welcoming Mr. Melton here, men of this calibre who can help develop our town will alway receive a hearty welcome by us.
