A VERY FINE PROCRAM HASBEEN
WELL ARRANCED FOR THE
The next session of Barnesville’s
great chautauqua begins Sunday
morning with a sermon by Dr.

and preacher. It is expected that
the Schiller male qnartett will
furnish music for Sunday’s ser
vices. Of course there are no
charges for Sunday.
The chautauqua proper will open

tertainers on the platform.
There has been a rearrangement
of the program within the last
week, and it is published in full
elsewhere in this issue, so that all
may know just when the •various
attractions are to appear.
The program is one of the best
that the chautauqua has ever had

of Barnesville and the entire sur

magnificent enterprise. Nobody

the exercises. These attractions
are brought here and the opportu
nity thus afforded for hearing
them at a remarkably low cost.
The chautauqua affords fourteen
of the best entertainments possi
ble for $2..50 or about 17 cents for
each. Think of hearing Watson,

or Macy, or Woodland, or the
band or the quartett or any of the
other splendid attractions at a
cost of only 17 cents. Is it not
an enterprise that should he most

BARNESVILLE, GA., THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 1902.
THE HOMES OF MRS. S. K. COOK
AND EDWARD ELDER SWEPT
AWAY BY FURIOUS
Tuesday night shortly after 11
o’clock, the home of Mrs. S. K.
Cook on Thomaston street was
discovered to he on fire and the
alarm was immediately given, to
which the tire company and a
great number of citizens responded
promptly. When the fire was
discovered however, it had gotten
a good start and the Humes spread
with such rapidity, that it was
almost impossible to arrest the
great conflagration. The fire com
pany and citizens worked with
great heroism, hut it was only a
few moments before the Cook
house was pactically destroyed and
the larger and comparatively new
home of Mr. Edward Elder was
also being burned to the ground.
Desperate efforts were made to
save the contents of these two
houses, and a great many things
were gotten out, but the loss to all
the occupants is very heavy.
As soon as it was seen that
nothing that could be done would
save either one of these homes, all
efforts were expended in trying to
prevent the spread of the fire to
therfurrounding houses. For a
time it looked as if the homes of
Mr. W. C. Stafford, Mr. It. G. Mat
thews, Miss Pattie Moyer and the
Piper house, occupied by Col. J.
F. Redding, would be set on fire
and burn but they were saved,
several of them being scorched.
It was one of the most disastrous
fires had here in a long time.
Shortly after 12 o’clock the fire
had done its work and all danger
had passed. The large concourse
of people returned to their homes,
regretting the severe losses and
sorry over the inability to do
more to help those who had suffer
It is supposed that the fire orig
inated in the stove room of the
The Cook house was occupied
by Mrs. S. K. Cook, whose loss is
about SSOO, with SBOO insurance;
Prof. G. F. 01 ipliant, Judge
Oliphant and their families,
losses about SIOOO, with SSOO
insurance, Prof. Oliphant losing
his large and very valuable
library; Miss Mollie Rogers and
Mrs. Poe, loss S2OO or SBOO. The
house was owned by Mr. E. L.
Cook, and was valued at about
$8,500, with SI7OO, insurance.
Mr. Elder lost his house and
practically all its contents, val
ued at between $5,000 and SO,OOO
with a total insurance of SI,OOO.
Rev. F. R. Graves and family
occupied memo in Mr. Elder’s
house and lost practically every
thing including a fine library.
Their Joss will be about SOOO or
S7OO withssoo insurance.
No one was hurt during the fire.
Judge Oliphant, was slightly burn
ed about the head, in his efforts
to save his household goods. It
was a disastrous fire and it is to
be hoped that Barnesville will not
be visited by such a one again.
