"Good night,” he said. The parlor light
^ Was soft and dim and low.
"Good night,” he breathed again; "Good night.
It’s time that I should go.”
She rose and smiled into his eyes.
# Then shyly bent her head.
"Good night,” he murmured, loverwise;
And then, "Good night,” he said.
"Good night”—ten minutes later —they
Were standing in the hall,
But he was on his homeward way.
"Go®d night”—he was so tall
Her head came barely to his heart,
> And she was fair and slight.
"The hour has come for us to part,”
He said, "and so, good night.”
"Good night.” (A half an hour had gone—
Ho hud his hat and cane,)
And said that he must hurry on,
Then said "Good night” again.
"Good night.” "Good night," "Good night,” and so
"Good night.” they ever sighed;
’Twas really time for him to go—
"Good night" the door swung wide.
"Good night." he said, and took her hand;
An hour or so went by;
"Good night,”- they could not understand

"Good night." again, and then "Good night.”
it Upon the steps they stood;
"Good night"—he kissed her fingers white,
As every lover should.
‘Good night"—the Eastern sky grew pink
As though about to blush.
"Good night.” —the stars began to wink,
The breezes whispered: "Hush."
Soon on their ears there clanged a knell
That smote them with affright
The ringing of the breakfast bell —
That time he said "Good night!”

Movement to Have Remains of Old Sol
diers Buried in Coweta Disinterred and
Brought to Newnan Monument
to Be Erected.
A few months ago The Herald and
Advertiser received the following com
munication from Hon. Lavender R.
Ray, of Atlanta—
‘I note that there is a movement on
foot to mark the graves of the Revo
lutionary soldiers buried in Georgia.
This purpose of the Daughters of the
American Revolution is commendable,
and should have the support and en
couragement of the people of each
county. The debt of gratitude we owe

some of the Revolutionary soldiers who
lived in Coweta in their old age: Al

James Aken, William Bunster, Randal!
Robinson. There are people now living
who remember these men, and who
may be able to point out their last rest

sepulture with suitable tablets or mon

he referred to the shamefully neglected
condition of the last resting-place of
Wm. Smith, one of the old soldiers spo
ken of in Col. Ray’s letter. Wm. Smith,
(better known as "Hellnation” Smith,)
died in the western part of the county
in 1852, and his body was laid to rest
in what was then a family burying-
ground, located in Panther Creek dis
trict, not far from the river. There
J were other graves on the lot, some of

While this venerable citizen is yet in
life and can assist in locating Smith’s

taken to have the remains disinterred,
brought to Newnan, and reinterred in
the soldiers’ cemetery. The expense
would be trilling, and to rescue the
bones of the old patriot from oblivion

the threescore and more Confederate
heroes wjio sleep in our soldiers’ cem

Chapter, D. A. R., has been for some
time considering plans for having the
remain’s of the old Revolutionary sol
diers buried at different points in the
county disinterred, and reinterring
them on one lot in Oak Hill cemetery,

It is also proposed to erect a monu

inscribed the names of the old heroes,

The only Revolutionary soldier
buried in Newnan is Randall Robinson,
grandfather of Mr, John E. Robinson,
Miss Emmie Robinson and Mrs. A. B.
Cates. He was born in Granville
county. N. C., May 2, 17(12. Moved to
Edgefield county, S. C., afterwards to
Putnam county, Ga., then to Butts
county, and came to Coweta county in
1827. In 1828 he aided in constituting
the first Baptist church organized in
Newnan, and died here Feb. 2, 1842.
While a resident of South Carolina he
served in the Revolutionary War as a
member of Col. Waters’ regiment.
Through the courtesy of Congressman
Adamson we have obtained from the
Pension Office at Washington brief
sketches of the other Revolutionary
soldiers whose names are given in this

He was married to Ann Benton in Hen

upon his death his widow was allowed
a pension in 1853, while residing at
Newnan, being at that time 7(1 years of

on the line between Maryland and
Pennsylvania, and while living in
Mecklenburg county, N. C., he enlisted
October, 1778, and served six months
as private in Capt. Brownfield’s com
pany, Col. Lock’s regiment. He after
wards served six weeks under Capt.
Hugh Parks, six weeks under Capt.
Chas. Polk, and three months in 1782
under Capt. Brownfield. He was
granted a pension on Sept. 5. 1832,
while residing in Coweta county, Ga.,
where he died April 12, 1843. He was
married in Greene county, Ga., on
March 16, 1791, to Frances , and
upon his death his widow was granted
a pension on Aug. 6, 1844, she being
then 80 years of age.
John Neely was born in Ireland in
1756. Emigrated to America, and
taken while living in the Waxhaw settlement,
S. C., enlisted March. 1776, and served
sixteen months as private in Capt. Eli

son’s Third South Carolina regiment,
and was in tne battle of Sullivan’s Is
land. Afterwards entered the service
in Georgia for tin months under Capt.
Pettigrew, Col. Jack’s regiment, lie-
turned to South Carolina and was called
out several times in skirmishing par
ties. Also served two years under Col.

in the State troops, and was severely
wounded in an engagement with Tories
near Camden, S. C. He was granted a
pension Sept. 18. 1832, while residing
in Coweta county, Ga. The records do
not show the date of his death, nor the
name of his wife.
Wm. Smith was born in Nansemond
1751, and during the
by fire and the enclosures were burned,
leaving only faint traces of the graves
that hallowed the spot. Afterwards
the few trees remaining on the lot
were cleared away and the land was
put in cultivation. The land upon
which the graves were located finally
passed into the hands of Mr. Henry
Dyer, and is stiil in his possession. So
far as known, the only person now liv
ing who was present at the burial of
“Hellnation” Smith is Mr. Reuben Car

being one of nine Revolutionary widows
then surviving in the United States.
The records of the Pension Office do
not show that Wm. Bunster was ever
on the pension roll, or that ho made ap
plication for a pension. Consequently
no record of his service as a soldier in
the Revolutionary War is obtainable.

A Corn Growing Country.
Lincoln (Gn.) Journal.
From all sections of the South comes
the news that farmers will this year
plant more corn than ever before in
the history of the cotton belt. In many
sections corn-growing contests have
been started, notably in South Geor
gia. Some of these contests are fos
tered by newspapers, while, in a num
ber of instances, county divisions of the
Farmers’ Union have the matter in
Lincoln county has for many years
been a “home-raising’ county, and this
year will ho no exception. In fact, the
farmers of this county will plant even
more corn than usual this year. This
is true of the red hills generally, as
well as other sections of the State.
Of course, there have been some
farmers in this county who have not
devoted as much of their time and land
to corn-raising as they should have,
but this year a number of them are
making preparations to plant corn.
And there is no doubt hut that the de
parture is going to be found of so great
a benefit to the farmer that he will
continue to plant more and more corn
in the years to come.
What is one of the most encouraging
signs of this step on the part of the
farmers of the Soutli is the fact that it
bespeaks that a season of prosperity is
ahead for them. For they will, if they
raise their own feedstulfs, save the
money that they would have to send
away. And that saved money can he
used at home lor improvements, for
the necessaries of life and for luxuries.
There are several reasons why more
acreage will he given to corn this year.
One is that cotton sold low last year.
Another is that for many years past
farmers of advanced ideas have been
teaching their brothers that it was
false economy to plant cotton to buy
corn to feed stock to raise more cotton
to buy more corn—and these lessons
are beginning to be listened to and
If the season is half good for the
crop, and there is as much planted as
reports say, there will he plenty of
Southern corn next fall, and Southern
farmers will not be dependent upon
Western-grown grain foi their supply.
Then the money obtained for the cotton
will ho “velvet.” and the Southern
farmer appreciates best of all what
Prizes for Best Corn.
One of the leading farmers of Troup
county has made a suggestion that will
accomplish great good if carried out.
He says that he will be one of ten far-
j mers to put up the sum of $50 each,
! making a purse of $500, to be divided
into premiums to be computed for by
j Troup county farmers in a corn-grow-
j ing contest, each farmer to enter one
I acre of upland corn to compete for the
J This contest Will, of course, be open
to all who wish to compete, under cer
tain rules that would have to he formu
lated. For instance, when seen by a
reporter, Mr. Geo. W. Truitt said he
was ready to put up his share of the
money and would enter the contest
with the statement that the more en
tries there were the better he would
like it, lor it would give a stimulus to
improved methods of corn-growing that
would go far towards making Troup
county the leader in the “hog and hom
iny” plan that circumstances are forc
ing on Georgia farmers.
A contest like this in South Carolina
this year was entered into by seventeen
farmers, and the average yield for the
seventeen acres was about eighty bush
els of measured corn. That is growing
corn some: hut The Reporter is firm in
the belief that Troup county can heat
that record in a year of average sea
sons. Anyway, we would like to see
the contest under wav. This contest
would make things lively, and attract
the attention of everybody in this sec
tion. It would prove a splendid side
issue to the many experimental patches
which will he cultivated under the di
rection of the Department of Agricul
ture, and as the culture progressed
farmers from all the surrounding coun
ties would come to note the methods
used and the results obtained. It would
prove a splendid educational movement
in upland cultivation of corn in Geor
Too Early to Raise This Question.
The question is being raised as to
whether Hon. Joseph M. Brown will he
a candidate to succeed himself, and the
statement is being made that if Mr.
Brown is a candidate Gov. Smith will
likely be the opposing candidate. It is
probable that the only ground for as
serting that Gov. Smith is thinking of
being a candidate against Mr. Brown is
the statement attributed to him some
time ago that when as a boy lie got
licked by another boy, he wasn’t satis
fied to stay licked, and insisted upon
Of course, Gov. Smith felt keenly
his defeat, and probably the wound
hasn’t quite healed yet. Anyone in his
position would have felt ahout as he
did, but by the time another campaign
begins he may look at the situation
differently. As a matter of fact, he
doesn’t want to be Governor again. If
he should seek the office two years
hence it would simply he for the pur
pose of satisfying his pride—to find a
salve for his hurt. He has got all the
honor out of the office it can give him,
and if he decides to stay in politics it
will be for the purpose of getting an
other office. His great ambition is to
he United States Senator. That is the
office on which he has his eye. Every
body that knows anything of his ambi
tion knows that lie would like to sit
with the solons of the Upper House of
It is too far ahead to sny with any
degree of certainty whether either lie
or Mr. Brown is thinking about the
next gubernatorial campaign—that is,
whether they are making up their
minds about it. The only reasons for
thinking that Mr. Brown is looking for
ward to another term are that a second
term is an indorsement of the first, and
the further fact that he is doing what
he can to make himself solid with the
people. He is visiting the different
counties and is developing quite a tal
ent as a public speaker. When he be
gan making addresses he didn’t talk
more than five or ten minutes. Now he
can make quite a long speech. Before
his term as Governor is half over he
may be able to make addresses that
will put him pretty nearly on a par
with Gov. Smith as an effective speak
er. Of course lie can never hope to
equal him as a campaign spellbinder,
but the man who talks longest and
loudest isn’t always the most convinc
It is apparent that Mr. Brown knows
how to get close to the people, and if,
in addition, he should satisfy them as
Governor, it would be pretty hard to
beat him in a campaign for Governor
two years hence. Many who might be
willing to support Gov. Smith for an
office other than that of Governor
might not he willing to sunport him
for Governor simply to heat Mr.
Brown. Still, as already stated, the
gubernatorial campaign is too far in
the future to give it serious considera
tion at this time.
