State Convention la the Gem City. I
Mr. D. Utiweit, secretary of the 27th:
District Sunday School Association, re
tained home on Monday morning from
Marietta, where he attended the annual
convention of the State Sunday School
Association. He speaks in gknriog
terms of the “gem city,” in fact he was
completely captivated and charmed by
the beauty of the place ami the clever
people he met there. “Marietta,” , said
be, “is one of the loveliest towns of north
Georgia. Nestling as it does atltlie foot
of the famous Konnesaw mountains, it is
one of the most inviting health resorts
in the state. The people are hospitable
and kind, and strive to excel in enter
taining visitors.” The State Convention
was received with open anus, and all the
delegates were made to feel at home.
There were about 150 delegates in at
tendance from all parts«of the state, from
the mountains to the sea. Mr. John M.
Green, of Atlanta, was elected president,
Ixitt Warren, of Americus, secretary,
and R. B. Reppard, of Savannah, chair-
man of the executive committee.' The
convention adjourned Friday afternoon.
One of the livest men connected with
the Superior Court of the Brunswick cir
cuit is Mr,, W. M. Toomer, the efficient
court stenographer. Mr. Toomer fills
his position acceptably to all connected
with the courts in this circuit, his work
bring quick and thorough. During his
short stay in Brunswick Mr. Toomer has
made many friend* by his pleasant, affa
ble manners.—Brunswick Times.
