Our friends of the First Methodist
church are considering ways and means
for the erection of a new and more
spacious house of worship. No definite
plans have been agreed upon as yet,
but as this is a large and well-to-do
membership, it may be stated as a cer
tainty that the proposed edifice will be
built sooner or later. Such a building
as is needed to seat comfortably the
eight hundred or more communicants
who worship at this church will cost
$30,000 or $40,000—ffiut the church can
raise it all right. We hope to see the
movement under good headway before

Enjoyed Their Visit to Newnan.
The Herald and Advertiser has re
ceived from Governor-elect Jos. M.
Brown a letter expressing, on behalf
of himself and wife, cordial apprecia
tion of the courtesies extended them
upon their recent visit to our city.
We assure the Governor and his good
wife that they had merely a foretaste
of Newnan hospitality during their
brief stay. If they will come again,
and remain long enough to give our
people a fair showing, we promise
them the time of their lives. Mr.
Brown’s letter is as follows:
"Marietta, Ga., Feb. 26.
“Hon. Jas. E. Brown, Newnan, Ga.
—Dear Mr. Brown : Please allow me
to express to you, and through you to
the people of Newnan and Coweta

the occasion of our recent visit to your
charming city. We shall ever feel

Franklin to Have a New Railroad.
West Point Herald.
Franklin, the capitol of Heard coun
ty, is at last to have a railroad. The
folks up there have awakened to the
fact that to keep abreast with the
times they must have transportation
facilities, and the citizens of Franklin
and Heard county went to work as one
man, subscribing the $45,000 necessary
to secure the road, the full amount
having been paid in.
A preliminary survey was made some
time ago, but several changes are to be
made, which will carry the road
