Board of Trade Holds Important
President Brannon called a meeting
of the Board of Trade on Monday night
last, the main object bein^r to revive in-
!— ' v| I terest in the organization and to take
I nrali Rmuaht Forward il steps to put i1: 0,1 an active working ha-
Locals urougnt rorwara. y sis> The president announced that the
standing committees appointed when
the board was organized would be con
tinued until the next annual election,
and each committee was urged to take
a more active interest in the duties to
which it was assigned at the organiza
tion, to the end that the business com
munity might get the full benefit of
the counsels and experience of the men
composing the several committees.
The suggestion was made that per
manent quarters be secured for the
Board of Trade, either by purchase or
lease. The matter was referred to a
committee, and definite action will like
ly be taken at the next meeting.
The secretary announced that certifi
cates of membership had been printed,
and these would be issued to all mem
bers who had paid the membership fee
of $25. Efforts will be made to secure
new members, the purpose being to
bring into the organization every busi
ness man in Newnan.
President Brannon called attention to
the excellent work that had been done
by various committees towards secur
ing subscriptions for the proposed rail
road from Franklin via Newnan to the
A., B. & A. road. He commended the
efforts of these public-spirited citizens,
who had taken hold of the enterprise
with the single purpose of helping
Newnan and Coweta county, and
thought they should have the co-opera
tion of the Board of Trade. He stated
that it would be necessary to raise a
few thousand dollars in addition to the
subscriptions already secured, and be
lieved that the Board of Trade should
take hold of the matter and assist in
carrying it through. This suggestion
was agreed to, and Messrs. W. C. Mc
Bride and T. B. Parks were appointed
from the Board of Trade to co-operate
with the citizens’ committee in closing
up the subscription list.
The canvass for subscriptions was
resumed Tuesday, and has been prose
cuted with such success that but little
more than $5,000 is now needed to
make up the amount required. The
committee is still at work, and before
the end of another week expect to raise
the entire amount needed.
A report having gone out that the
Coweta Creamery had suspended on ac
count of a scarcity of milk, The Herald
and Advertiser takes this opportunity
to deny the rumor. The creamery has
been in successful operation from the
day it started, and there is no likeli
hood that it will close down. The milk
supply is not sufficient just now to ena
ble the creamery to run to its full ca
pacity. it is true, but conditions will
improve as spring approaches, and the
company expects then to get as much
milk as it can use. The creamery is a
great benefit to the farmers of the com
munity, and they are showing their ap
preciation by patronizing it.
The Southern School of Telegraphy
now has seventy pupils, the largest en
rollment iri several years. The student
body is composed of a splendid lot of
young men, all studying to qualify
themselves for railroad office work and
as telegraphers These students spend
about $1,500 in Newnan each month for
board, lodging and laundry, not count
ing other hundreds spent for clothing
and minor incidentals. Never before,
perhaps, has Newnan appreciated so
fully the importance of this school, or
its value to the community. Prof. W.
L. Strieker, the popular president, has
brought the school up to a fine stand
ard of efficiency, and the graduates
turned out are a credit to the institu
The marriage of Miss Addie Blanche
Floyd and Mr. John Will Brakefield
was solemnized Wednesday afternoon at
4 o’clock, at the home of the bride’s
mother, Mrs. Hattie C. Floyd. The
ceremony was impressively performed
by Rev. E. W. Jones. It was a very
quiet affair, only a few personal friends
being present to witness the happy oc
casion. Miss Floyd is the eldest daugh
ter of Mrs. Hattie Floyd, and is an in
dustrious, intelligent young lady, of
good Christian character, and will make
an agreeable companion for the man
who has chosen her for his wife. Mr.
Brakefield is the son of one of our best
merchants, Mr. W. L. Brakefield, and
is an honest, hard-working young man,
who, by strict attention to his farming
business, is making a success. Imme
diately after the ceremony Mr. and
Mrs. Brakefield left for Farmdale,
where the former had a home nicely ar
ranged for his bride.—Senoia Enter

We are pleased to note that the City
Council and the City Board of Educa
tion are about to get together on the
question of a new school building for
South Newnan. At a late meeting of
the City Council that body was asked
to call an election to determine the
matter of issuing bonds to the amount
of $18,000 for the purpose named, but
the proposition was turned down. At a
called meeting of Council on Thursday
of last week the question was again ta
ken up, and Alderman Cole and Presi
dent Atkinson, of the school board,
were requested to have plans made for
such a building as will meet all require
ments, together with an estimate of
the probable cost of same, and report
at a subsequent meeting of Council.
We understand that there is some dif
ference in the estimates, according to
figures furnished by the school board
and calculations made by the alder-
manic board, and it is with a view to
getting a clearer idea as to the actual
cost ot the proposed building that
Messrs. Cole and Atkinson have been
asked to go into the matter more thor
oughly. Future action of Council re
garding a bond issue will doubtless de
pend largely upon the character of the
report to be submitted by the gentle
Ministerial Association Condemns
The following resolutions were passed
at the regular weekly meeting of the
Newnan Ministerial Association on
Monday last, to-wit:
“Resolved, That the Newnan Minis
terial Association views with uneasi
ness the multiplication of near-beer sa
loons in the city of Newnan, believing
that their influence is injurious and de
moralizing to our people.
“Resolved further, That we call the
attention of our citizens to the danger
that threatens our people from the near-
been saloons, and urge them to keep
their eyes open to all violations of law
from these sources.

—A banker going home from his
dinner saw a $10 bill on the curbstone.
He picked it up. noted the number, and
went home to dinner. While at home
his wife remarked that the butcher had
sent a bill amounting to $10. The only
money he had with him was the bill he
had found, which he gave to her, and
she paid the butcher. The butcher paid
it to a farmer for a calf, and the far
mer paid it to a merchant, who, in turn,
paid it to a washerwoman, and she. ow
ing the banker a note of $10. went to
the bank and paid the note. The banker
recognized the bill as the one he had
found, and which, up to that time, had
paid $50 of debts. On careful investi
gation he discovered that the bill was
counterfeit. Now, will some friend
tell us what has been lost in this trans
action, and by whom?

that stuck to me, in spite of all reme

to 130 pounds. Then l began to use
