REV. JOSEPH J. JONES.
Rev. Joseph J. Jones, of Car
tersville, brother of Rev. Sam
Jones, arrived in Barnesville Mon
day and lias been preaching at |
tlie Baptist church at if o’clock
a. m. and at 8 p. in. wince his
arrival. He G a large man and
has a strong, impressive face,
bearing a striking resemblance to
his well known brother. He lias
been a minister for years and has
conducted religious services in
ail parts of the country. Mr. Jones
is an interesting speaker. Jb- lias
the faculty of keeping his audience
listening and while lie is quite
humorous, at times, In* makes you
feel that everything he says is to i
make plain and impressive the
truth as it taught in the Word.
Thus far in his work here he has j
been pleading earnestly and power
ful for right living. Ho says
plainly that he would not give a
Himp of his finger for a religion
that will not make a man or a
woman live right—in the home,
in business and everywhere. He
talks to fathers and mothers and
children, and to neighbors, citi
zens, church members and ungod
ly, the rich and the poor, and he
urges them to live right. His
message therefore is to all kinds
and conditions of men, and such
appeals as he is making are certain
to bear good fruit. We hope that
the visit of this sweet spirited and
Godly man will be a blessing to
the entire city ami section. Go
and hear him and lie will bless

for State School Commissioner,
was in Barnesville Monday, and
spoko'very hopefully of his nomi

making an active campaign, and
while he had not been lighting

greatly gratified at the reception
given him in all parts of the state.
He told his friends here that he
was satisfied he would be nomina
ted at the coining primary.
Prof. Merritt is well known in

county will give him its support.
He is a hightoned. honorable,
Christian gentleman, in every wav

and it is now freely predicted
that lie will win.

suddenly sick at the express office
yesterday morning, and his friends
were somewhat alarmed about his

Mr. Rose to Lecture.
The speech of Mr. E. \Y. Rose
at the auditorium Friday evening
laßt week created no little inter
est and showed him to be a speak
er, who could,entertain and please
jan audience, it was particularly
impressive to many people pres
ent and when he concluded, he
was vigorously applauded.
Mr. Rose has prepared a lecture
entitled, “The Palace and Hovel,
|or, The Rich and Poor.” Jt, is
: filled with philosophy, wit, humor
and pathos, and contains many
illustrations which will entertain
land instruct, which Mr. Rose has
picked up in his travels through
out the state and country during
the past ten years. He lias sever
al invitations already to deliver
this lecture at different places and
he will no doubt accept them. As
he has many very humorous ex
periences to relate and as he has
good command of language and a
pleasant delivery he will doubt
less make a success from the very
start. He thinks a man who can
amuse people and make them
laugh is a blessing and he is right.
We wish him great success.

became frightened at the train,
got loose from the driver and ran
for two miles. It, was fortunate
that they kept in the road, and
thus there was no damage, except
a broken glass in the coffin. It,
was a remarkable escape for
the hearse and corpse, and the
runaway was very much regretted.

Tlif Statue. of Parla.
No city in the world has so many
statues and monuments as Paris, and
every day secs anew project for anew
statue or bust. It is curious to note in
this connection that a large proportion
of the famous men honored in this way
came to their end by violence In some
form or other. Many of them died on
the scaffold, and a stroll thrbugh the
l’nris streets may give the philosopher
food for reflection on the mutability of
human judgment. Dan ton and La
voisier were guillotined, Jeanne d’Arc
and Etienne Detet were burned at the
stake, Henry IV. was murdered,
Etienne Marcel was also assassinated,
Marshal Ney was shot. Condoreet com
mitted suicide to escape the scaffold,
and these are only a tithe of those that
might be mentioned.

knew it was customary for the minis

those who wished should step up to
view the remains, but he thought this
was too hackneyed a phrase, and he
said instead, ‘The congregation will
now pass around the bier.’ ’’—New York
