citizens. He was born in Hancock

The Newnan friends of Miss Annie
Laurie Brewster, of College Park, are
much interested in the preparations
that are being made for her approach
ing marriage to Mr. Clarence Wicker-
sham, also of College Park. The wed
ding will take place in June. Refer
ring to the prospective event, the At
lanta Georgian says: “Mr. Clarence
Wickersham. whose marriage to Miss
Annie Laurie Brewster is announced
for June, is erecting a beautiful bunga
low on the Boulevard at College Park,
which will be completed, furnished and
ready for occupancy on their return
from their bridal tour.’’
Mr. E. S. Buchanan, whose success
at poultry-raising is the envy and ad
miration of all his neighbors, writes
The Herald and Advertiser as follows:
“A few weeks ago 1 saw in your paper
an article giving the laying record of a
pen of Plymouth Rocks and of a pen of
Rhode Island Reds which was veiy
creditable, and while I do not wish to
take a plume from the brow of these
most estimable egg-producers, I think
some one should do justice to the repu
tation of the single-comb White Leg
horns, and will give the record of a pen
of six grown hens and eleven pullets,
ages from five to six months, (not one
over six months of age.) This pen of
seventeen hens and pullets laid from
March 25 to April 25 three hundred.and
seventy-one eggs, and from March 25 to
March 29 (five days) thev laid seventy
eggs—an average of fourteen eggs a day
for the seventeen fowls, including elev
en pullets not over six months of age.

was elected lieutenant of his company,

war closed. Returning to Newnan in

popularity was further evidenced by
his election to the mayoralty of the
