City court was held Monday
and Tuesday, Judge C. J. Lester
presiding. No civil business was
on the docket for trial and the
court’s attention was occupied en
tirely with criminal business. It
was a regular matinee, there being
present a big crowd of negros
throughout the time and none of
the cases were of much importance.
Nearly all of the cases were sub
mitted to Juries.

A GREAT GAME.
THE PATS AM) THE LEANS PLAY
TO A BIG CROWD—SCORE
IS TO IS.
The last and greatest ball game
of the season was played in Barnes
ville Friday afternoon last,
between the Fats and the Leans.
It was baseball not to be talked
about and read about, but to be
seen to be appreciatedand enjoyed.
In the nine innings the two nines
made thirty six runs and no
errors. There were just numer
ous grand stand plays. Neither
the Fats or the Leans knew how
to fumble a ball and llyes and
grounders were handled without
any trouble by members of the
teams. It was a great game and
was worth seeing.
The game was suggested the first
of the week and when Mr. C. O.
Summers and Mr. M. W.
Smith began to arrange for it, such
enthusiasm was shown that it be
came to be an important social
event. The men, women and
children constituted the fans and
nearly a thousand people saw the
Mr. 0. M. Jones was sponsor
for the Leans and Mr. Joe Reeves
for the Fats, each of whom was
driven up in a carriage handsome
ly decorated in the colors of the
team. The Barnesville Silver Cor
net band was engaged to furnish
music for the event and free red
lemonade was furnished in abun
dance to all the ladies who attend
The players were properly cos
tumed and no detail of the game
was left unattended to.
That the score was 18 to 18 was
not the fault of either team, for
every player played liis best to
win. Of course there was con
siderable kicking at the umpire
and scorer, but there was no serious
The following gentemen com
posed the two nines:
The Fats —Mayor W. 15. Smith,

Pike County Man Gets SSOO.
In the Atlanta Constitution’s
prize contest, which ended on the
last day of August, a Pike county
man was fortunate in being award
ed the sum of SSOO. He was Dr.
L. H. Bartee, of Molena, Ga. His
estimate of the crops of 1901-2
was 10,681,187 bales. The exact
number according to Secretary
Hester’s figures, of the New
Orleans Cotton Exchange, was
10,681,680 bales. There was quite
a number of other prizes, one of
which amounted to $1,500, which
went to a gentleman of South
The Constitution is now running
another contest, in which prizes
are offered amounting to $20,000.
No doubt Dr. Bartee will appre
ciate his SSOO check.
Mr. J. B. Bankston has moved
the stock of the Bankston Hard
wase Company to the building
formerly occupied by the gent’s
furnishing department of the J.
C. Collier Cos. Some changes have
been made in the interior that
improve the place, and it is one
of the most desirable stands in
town. No doubt he will do a big
business in his new quarters.
A Profitable Meeting.
Last Monday afternoon, from
four to six o’clock, the Woman’s
Missionary Society and young
ladies of the Baptist church were
delightfully entertained at the
home of Mrs. O. M. Jones by the
members of the society, on Green
The object of this Missionary
social was to arouse interest and
enthusiasm in the great cause of
missions and the study especially
of the work of the Sunday School
Despite the inclement weather,
the large attendance attested the
the desire to rally to the work,
and a lurge number of new mem
bers were added to the roll.
A thoroughly interesting pro
gram had been prepared and was
well carried out by the partici
Especially happy were the open
ing remarks and words of wel
come to the new members by the
president, Mrs. J. W. Reeves.
A most timely and instructive
talk on the origin* struggles and
Work of the Sunday School hoard
was given by the pastor, Rev. C.
W. Durden. It was replete with
information and will be very help
ful. A general discussion of the
local Sunday School work, its
needs aud how to increase interest,
was entered heartily into by a
The meeting was in every res
pect, a most pleasant one and it
is hoped will be of much profit to
every one who was present. Doubt
less it will be the means of increase
in zeal on the part of those already
interested and these, in turn will
do pinch toward arousing others.
Delicious refreshments of cake
and cream were served and every
one voted the hospitable hostess
their heartiest thanks for the hap
piness of the occasion.
To Establish A Dairy.
Mr. M. J. Oxford, of Thomas
ton, has been in the city (his
week, prospecting with a view of
establishing a large dairy near
Barnesville. Mr. Oxford was at
the Experiment station at Grif
fin, for five years and while there
was under Mr. H. J. Wing, one of
the noted experts of the country.
He thinks he understands the
business and he is satisfied that
this is a good place to establish a
dairy, run on scientific and
business principles. Mr. Oxford
wants to secure a convenient
farm, adapted to the purpose and
keep about twenty-five cows. He
says he could furnish as good
butter and milk as could be ob
tained anywhere. He says that
any surplus butter could be easily
sold in the surrounding markets.
He understands the manufactur
ing of cheese also, but he doubts
whether it would pay to under
take this here.
It is hoped that Mr. Oxford can
make suitable arrangements for
Prosperous But Still Improving.
Mr. A. O. Murphey, secretary
and treasurer of the Georgia Un
derwear Mills, arrived in the city
Monday afternoon from New
York city, where he lias been about
ten days in the interest of his
mills. He went north for the
purpose of buying a quantity of
new machinery and transacting
other important business. Since
Mr. Murphey has boon in charge
of this plant it has had u very
prosperous career and it is con
stantly enlarging and improving
its equipment. It enjoys a splend
id reputation and it always has
all the orders that it can handle.
The Georgia Underwear Mills is

tant manufacturing enterprises.
