Prof. T. D. Thurman, who has
been connected with the Jeft Davis
Institute at Zebulon,.has been elected
principal of the school at Pleasant
Hill. He is well esteemed by the
people of Zebulon and of this section.
It is rumored that the officials of
the Central will enlarge the freight
depot at Barnesville. Some of them
were here recently and t e depot and
platform were crowded with freight
and they decided that enlarged accom
modations were absolutely necessary.
We hope to see the improvements
Mrs. H. F. Blalock has applied to
the ordinary of Pike county for letters
of administration on the estate of Col.
S. N. Woodward, lately deceased. She
has also applied for guardanship of
the person and property of Grace
Woodward, the only daughter of Col.
Woodward, both of which applications
will doubtless be granted.
The last issue of The Thomaston

had decided to locate in Barnesville
for the purpose of practising law and
that he would occupy the old office of
Col- S. N. Woodward, lately deceased
and also have charge of his unfinished
business. Col. Lester will be given a

FALL TERM ANNOUNCEMENT.
The fall term of Gordon Institute will begin on Monday
Sept 4th. The following changes will be made: In the in
termediate department, Miss Milner having resigned, her
place will be taken by Miss Turner, and Miss Turner’s'place
by Miss Me. Cullougb, Mrs Rogers will remain at the head
of the Primary department,|and Miss Stewart will have charge
of the Free department of the public school. Mr. Swatts
will continue as instructor of the Cadet Band and Mrs. Not
tingham will be at the head of the Music department. Miss
Lockhart will continue as instructress in Elocution and head
of the Physical Qulture class.
The tuition for the fall term will be SSSo in the Primary
and Intermediate classes and $6.00 for Collegiate classes.
This small advance in tuition was absolutely necessary to
keep the institute out of debt but it is yet much lower than
any school of like character in the state. The people of
Barnesville, who have never yet failed, are confidently called
on to rally again to the support of the Institute by sending
their children promptly on the first day.
By order of the'board of trustees.
B. M. Turner,
J. W. Stafford secretary President.
There have been a lot of people
wanting to rent residences in Barnes
ville recently who could not be sup
plied. Quite a number of new famil
ies, however, made arrangements and
will be residents of Barnesville in the
future. All of them are welcome.
Gordon Institute fall term opens
next Monday. The indications are
encouraging for a splendid foreign
patronage. President Pound has had
a large correspondence this summer
and has sent out many catalogues.
Every child of school age in this
community ought to enter Monday
morning. Parents should have their
children take advantage of the
excellent opportunities which Gordon
Dr. J. L. Fogg, the popular
dentist and wealthy citizen, is spend
ing a month in Virginia, where he is
visiting relatives, and no doubt he is
having such a trip as most people of
Barnesville would enjoy. He makes
a visit to that section every year or
two and always greatly enjoys it. He
will probably be away a couple of
The merchants of Barnesville are
getting in a large stock of new fall
and winter goods and they will be en
abled to satisty every want of the peo
ple of the entire section. There are
few places like Barnesville that carry
such a creditable quanity and quality
of goods in all lines. People need
not go to the cities to get what they
ordinarily want if they are customers
of the merchants of Barnesville.
Mr. Harry Briggs has been in At
lanta during the past ten days finish
ing a course in an Optical Institute,
and he is now better prepared than
ever to serve the customers of J. H.
Bate & Cos in making examinations
and fitting glasses. He returned
from Atlanta a few days since.
In his report to the board of educa
tion ot Baldwin county, Hon. Richard
N. Lamar, commisssioner, referred as
follows to the Barnesville Inter-county
Institute and chautauqua:
“In accordance with your instruc
tion the white teachers attended in a
body the Inter-County Institute held
at Barnesville, Ga., July 3rd to July
7th inclusive. Twenty-five teachers
were in regular, attendance, there be
ing but three absentees, who are pro
perly accounted for.
This was an opportunity for great
benefit to every earnest teacher, not
only were they privileged to reap the
benefit to be derived from the Insti
tute work as conducted by such able
educators as Dr. W. H. Payne and
Profs. Jere M. Pound and G. G.
Bond, but permitted to hear from the
Chautauqua platform lectures of the
very highest order. lam impressed
you were judictous in supplementing
the teacher’s salary to the amount of
railroad fare to and from the Institute
and respectfully suggest that a suffi
cient sum be set aside to defray not
only their transportation but board
and lodging as well, and that they be
required to attend the Chautauqua as
well as Institute exercises.”
Mr. Millard P. Bush, a successful
farmer who lives near Barnesville, re
cently shipped ten bushels of rye to
Alabama, for which he received $ r.OO
per bushel. This was profitable, and
it is an indication of what may be
done on a larger scale. If cotton
will not pay other products will.
(live Books Now.
All who intend to contribute books
to the Barnesville Library are reques
ted to do so at once. The book com
mittee expects to make another order
for books in a few days and they do
not want to order books that may
be given by the citizens. This is im
portant and it is hoped therefore that
all who have books to contribute will
do so at once.
Col. Lester’s Card.
Attention is directed to the law
card of Col. C. J. Lester, who comes
to Barnesville from Thomaston to
practise law. He is a young man who is
making reputation at the bar and he
will faithfully represent all clients who
entrust their cases to him.
