Junior Barnes Class.
A few weeks ago a Baraca class
for young mien betwsen tho ages of
slxteea and twenty-one was organ
ised In the Sunday school of the
First Baptist church for the purpose
of bringing all young men not Identi
fied with other denominations Into
the Sunday school work. The organ
isation has been so successful that
the younger boys, from tbe ages of
twelve to sixteen, have caught the
spirit and resolved to form a similar
organisation under the name of Jun
This was done on Sunday last. Th«
officers art John Roddenbeiy, pres
ident, Joe Massey vice president,
and Mlaa Madge Beverly teacher. The
class now consists of about twenty
members, and all are working bard
to make It a euccees.
As has been stated this movement
originated with a business man of
Syracuse, N. Y., Its purpose being, to
work for the uplifting of the many
young men in the cities who -werei not
attending say Sunday school. The
Baraca class Is to be a part of the
regular Sunday school, the platform
being "Young men at work for
young men, all standing by the Bi
ble and the Bible School.”
The name which has been chosen,
Baraca" means a blessing, and the
work has been Indeed a blessing In
many Instances. A number of com
mittees have been formed to co-oper
ate with the officers In making the
class a success, and It Is believed that
this junior clsaa win be fully as suc
cessful aa tbe senior.

(From Thursday Dally)
A marriage of mors than usual
Interest was solemnised yesterday
morning at nine thirty at the home
of the bride on Jackeon street, when
Mr. J. D. McCartney and Mias Jean
ne Brown plighted their troth in the
presence of relatives and a few iptt-
mate friends. The ceremony was
conducted by Rev. A. TV. Beeler, sad

nine thirty the groom entered the
parlor with his best man, Mr. W. M.
Hardy and tbe brlda following with
her uncle, Mr. W. J. Taylor. They

usually beautiful in this simple but
appropriate drees. Miss Ethel De

The wedding ring with which the
troth was plighted Is half of the ring
used by the mother of the bride
when she was married. Many and
costly presents were received ss a
token of the high esteem and regard
that the yofang people are held by
their friends all oTer the state.
The bride Is one of Tbomasvllle’s
best known and widely admired
women. The groom Jack McCartney
ollna with them a record that would
assure them of the southern cham
pionship. To their sorrow they learn
ed that Georgia, too, was in tbe race
for the Championship.
Trinity undoubtedly has the
strongest team Georgia will have to
play this season. They have played
sixteen games and lost only three of
them, two of these being to
Georgia and the other to Dartmouth.
Georgia so far has played eight
games and has lost none.
Yesterday’s contest was one of
the moet exciting ever witnessed in
Athens. Foley began the firing for
Georgia, but.Trinity landed on hi J ‘ ,ndear< * himself to the people
~ of Thomasvllle ss but few men have.
and secured two runs and four hits
In the first two Innings. Harman
was then sent in for Georgia and
Trinity's run-getting was at on end,
ss he shut them out without a hit
for the next seven timings. Goor-
chance tor championship
looked slim until the fonrth Inning
when an error, a fait and a three-
bagger by Bennett tied the score. In
the sixth Watson singled
Graves doubled to left aad Watson
tallied. This finished the scoring
for Georgls, leaving the score 3 to
In Georgia’s favor. Georgia
played an errorless game while the
Trinity boys had three marked np
to their credit. Harmon fanned
six men and allowed no hits.
Today's game was a hummer. It
waa a pitcher’s battle from start to
finish with Redfearn on the slab
tor Georgia and Lane, wbo claims
never before to have lost a game for
bis college, doing the twirling for
Trinity. Redfearn was In fine con
dition and held the Trinity hatters
down to 2 hits and no runs. Before
the game the Georgia boys placed
twelve strike outs to his credit and
at the end of the game he had not
missed this number far as he had
fanned nine In eight Innings. Lane
had two strike outs and 6 hits to his

The game waa called In the eighth
Inning on account of rain, much to
the satisfaction of Trinity. Georgia
scored one run in the sixth on Hod

third. The other ran came In the
eighth. When the game waa called,
Georgia had two men on baeei and

The contributions for missions tor
ef your letter of the 13th Inst, mak
ing Inquiry of me at the pastor of
tho Second Baptist Church, Atlanta,
concerning Hon. Joseph M. Brown,
accompanied by th% statement that
reports are being circulated In yonr
county to the effect that he is an
Immoral man anti a whiskey man. I
do not feel that I should hs*..qte a
moment In answering yonr letter
with frankness. Such reports about
Mr. Brown are utterly false. ( He IS
a member of the Second Baptist
Church, Atlanta, not only in ordin
ary good standing but In tho partic
ular high esteem of all who know
him. He Is a modest, earnest, un
ostentatious Christian. No breath
of Immorality or wrong-doing has
ever so far rb I. have ever heard or
so far as the people of tbe Second
Baptist Church have heard, been at
tached to, his name. He Is the larg
est individual contributor to mis
sions in tbe Second Baptist cbnrcb,
and has been tor many years, al
though his residence was !> Marietta
Ga. Only very recently he joined
with our church here In a handsome
contribution to the Mercer Endow
ment fund. Mr. Brown’s record on
the prohibition queetion Is well
known In Fulton County. /Ha baa
never .been Identified with tbe whis
key people. In thq first prohibition
campaign in Fulton county, he stood
with Henry Grady and Dr. Haw
thorne In their campaign Dr. Haw
thorne la my authority for this fact
and many othere Identified with the
leadership of that campaign on tae
prohibition side. Peculiar signifi
cance was attached to this stand
beeasse of ths fact that he was going
against bis father and other mem-
hen of bis family In obedience to
his personal convictions that prohi
bition was right.
“I am also In possession of the In
formation that he has always stead
ily refused to rent his private
property for saloon purposes in At
lanta, although he owned property
constantly In demand for such pur
poses at a very much higher rate
"Personally I believe from what
I know of Mr. Brown’s character,
conduct and convictions that the In
terests of prohibition can be safely
trusted to his hands. Of any other
Issue dn the campaign I have nothing
to^say. I am merely deelrious In
answer to your letter that the false
report which you say Is being cir
culated concerning Mr. Brown may
have a positive dental from Ms pas
