NEW NAN, FRIDAY, APR. 2 3. Locals Brought Forward. 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 inst.) 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.” The Reading Circle met with Mrs. Frank Rawls yesterday afternoon, Mrs. ■T. E. Atkinson presiding. Mrs. Nor- is called for current events, and in he animated disaussion which followed 11 the members participated. Mrs. itkinson read a delightful description the coast of England, beginning with the mouth of the Tyne and follow ing the coast line around to Solway Firth, relating many interesting stories and myths of the points touched. Mrs. I A. M. Norris and Mrs. Frank Rawls I read papers on the questions previously j assigned. There will be no meeting) next week, but on Thursday, May (i, I the Circle will meet with Mrs. J. H. I Simms. A full attendance is urged, as j it is desired to complete the study of England. The Daughters of the Confederacy will entertain the old veterans on Me morial Day at a barbecue dinner, and all are cordially invited. The invita tion is conveyed in the following reso lution, which was adopted at the regu lar meeting of Newnan Chapter on Tuesday of last week, to-wit: ‘‘Re solved, That Newnan Chapter, U. D. C., hereby extends a cordial invitation to the old veterans of the county to attend a barbecue dinner to be given in their honor on Memorial Day, at the old Coweta Bank building in Newnan.” All veterans are requested to call at the assembly-room in the Carnegie Li brary between 10 and 11:30 a. m. on Memorial Day, where badges will be given them. 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 of trustees. 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 railroad company. 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. © o o Day ’Phone 1H o © o 0 Night’Phone -11 Spring Clean ing Helps.
