THK FALL TERM OF GORDON
INSTITUTE Mil A. BEGIN SEP
The Fall term of Gordon Insti
stute will begin Monday week,
which is September Ist. and the
enrollment promises to be larger
than in many years.
The school has the best corps
of teachers in the state, and the

take, but do a w’ise thing. Every
parent should be very particular
in selecting a school for their sons
and daughters, as a education
means much in life.
Prof. G. F. Oliphant, the able
president, states that the pros
pects are indeed gratifying and
that the attendance will be ex
ceedingly large. Numerous cata
logues have been mailed by re
quest to all parts of the south.
From the present outlook the bat
tallion promises to be much larger
Gordon Institute is, and will
ever be, the pride of Barnesville.

A Card From R. A. Stafford.
Mu. Edjtoh: — l have heard
from some of my friends that they
were sorry that I am a candidate
for Aldermanic honors, subject to
nomination in this primary Aug
ust 28rd. from the fact, that 1 am
a “one man” candidate. Now,
this,.J most emphatically deny.
I‘knew nothing of my name being
used in the coming primary until
a few days ago, when a petition
was presented to me with 70 or
I(K> citizens’ names on it asking
that 1 allow the use of my name.
This looks to me like more than
one man, yea, more than one doz
en men. You have seen the plat
form on which 1 allow my name
used. Do you endorse the plat
form? Or will you defeat it be
cause some people you don’t like
