Edgar Meriwether, who has been
making the John R. Cates Drug Co.'s
show-windows such pictures of beauty
the past few weeks, displays a genius
for window-decorating that is really
wonderful, when it is remembered that
he has had no training or instruction
whatever. The different designs and
fancies which are shown in Cates’ win
dows from time to time are original
conceptions, and are highly cieditable
to the young man. He is now about 15
years of age, and his skill as a window
decorator is sure to land him in a big
ger town than Newnan some day.
Mr. Chas. Leres, proprietor of the
Newnan Restaurant, has leased the
lower floor of the new Burpee building
on the south side of Court Square, now
in course of erection, and will occupy
it as soon as completed. He has not
yet decided upon a name for his place
of business, and authorizes The Herald
and Advertiser to say that he will pay
$5 to the lady of Newnan who fur
nishes the most suitable and desirable
name to be adopted. All names, to
gether with the address of each lady
who may compete for the prize, should
be forwarded by mail to the Newnan
Restaurant by next Tuesday, (27th
The remains of Mrs. Jas. A. Rudi-
sill, of Memphis, Tenn., were brought
to Newnan on Tuesday last and carried
out to the Fry burying-ground, in the
Third district, for interment. She was
drowned in the river at Memphis Sat
urday by the upsetting of a boat in
which she and a male companion had
gone out fishing. The man saved him
self by swimming, but from all ac
counts made no effort to save the un
fortunate woman. Mrs. Rudisill was
about 25 years of age, and was reared
in the Third district of this county.
She leaves a husband, but no children.
She was a sister of Mrs. VV. L. Red
ding. of Moreland.
We stated last week that Hon. T. C.
Banks, of Attalla, Ala., (a brother of
Mr. Sam Banks, of this city,) would be
in the race for State Treasurer of Ala
bama. Our statement was based upon
a news item printed in several of the
daily newspapers. Since the publica
tion referred to Mr. Banks has issued
a card to the public in which he an
nounces definitely that he will not be a
candidate for the office named, saying:
"1 have decided that I cannot afford to
go into politics. I am a business man.
with large mercantile interests, and
also president of a bank. Nevertheless
I appreciate very much the many kind
letters from the people of Alabama as
suring me of their support.”

At a meeting of the Board of Trade
yesterday afternoon an invitation was
extended Hon. Martin V. Calvin, direc
tor of the State Experiment Station at
Griffin, to address the business men and
citizens of Newnan next Tuesday even
ing at 8 o’clock on the subject of ‘‘New
and Wider Markets for American Cot
ton Goods.” In view of the early com
pletion of the Panama Canal, and closer
trade relations with the Orient as the
main object of this great enterprise,
the subject is one in which every far
mer and manufacturer of cotton goods
is deeply interested. Mr. Calvin has
been for many years an earnest student
of industrial conditions in the South, is
a fine speaker, and will treat this ques
tion intelligently and entertainingly.
The address will be given at the court
house, and everybody should hear it.
A campaign inaugurated several
months ago in behalf of a great Pres
byterian hospital and federated enter- j
prises, to be located in Atlanta and to i
be under the patronage and direction of j
the six presbyteries of Georgia, has re- 1
suited in the formation of a permanent j
and effective organization for the pur- j
pose of carrying out the objects con- |
templated by the movement. A board ;
of trustees consisting of thirtv-six lay
men, and an advisory board consist
ing of thirty-six ministers, have been
created, and these boards will meet in |
Atlanta on May 15 for the purpose of ;
perfecting the organization. Rev. J. 1
E. Hannah, of Newnan. is on the advi
sory board, and Mr, T. B. Parks, also
of this city, is a member of the board
It will be recalled that at a special
term of Coweta Superior Court, held in
December last, the case of the Jacobs
Pharmacy Co., of Atlanta, against the
Atlanta and West Point Railroad Co.,
on a suit for damages, was tried a sec
ond time and again resulted in a ver
dict for the plaintiff, the jury finding
in the sum of $7,200. The railroad com
pany made a motion for new trial, and
when it came up for a hearing a few
days ago Judge Freeman overruled the
motion. Of course, under this ruling
the verdict of the jury will stand, un-'j
less the railroad company should decide j
to carry the case to the Supreme Court.
The plaintiff was represented in the lit-1
igation by John L. Hopkins & Sons, of j
Atlanta, and W. C. Wright, of this i
city, while Dorsey, Brewster, Howell I
& Heyman, of Atlanta, and W. G. j
Post, of this city, appeared for the j
The Coweta Creamery closed down a j
few days ago, owing to inability to se- j
cure milk in sufficient quantity to keep :
the plant going, and the dairy expert!
employed to manage it has returned to
his home in Iowa. A meeting of the j
stockholders will be held to-morrow to !
determine what disposition shall be j
made of the property- whether it shall j
be put in the hands of a receiver, or|
taken over by the stockholders and put i
up for sale to the highest bidder. It
is to be regretted that this useful en
terprise, which was started a few
months ago under such favorable aus
pices, should have come to grief so
soon. The creamery was designed to
help the farmers, by providing a ready
market for their surplus dairy pro
ducts, and for a time it was well pat
ronized. The patronage fell off heavi
ly during the fall and winter months,
though, and finally was reduced to a
point where the plant could not be op
erated except at a loss. We think the
attitude of indifference assumed by
our farmer friends toward the enter
prise was a mistake, and they will
realize it before summer is over. It
deserved, and should have received, a
more loyal support.
