that of Miss Mary Fox Camp and Mr.
J. A. Hutchinson, of Haralson, which
was solemnized Wednesday evening at
the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs.
W. W. Camp, in South Newnan. The
home was attractively decorated, and
a large company of friends was pres
ent to witness the nuptials. The cere
mony was beautifully ard impressively
performed by Rev. A. S. Hutchinson,
a brother of the groom, and the occa
sion was a thoroughly happy one in all
respects. The bride is quite popular
in Newnan. where she is highly es
teemed for her fine womanly traits and
lovable character. The groom is a
prosperous merchant of Haralson, and
one of the prominent citizens of the
town. The Herald and Advertiser ex

for Wednesday and Friday mornings.
He fills the programme with wit, trag

—The convicts taken from the brick
yards and coal mines and placed at
work on the public roads are dissatis
fied with the change. They say they
made extra money by working extra
hours at the mines, but now these per
quisites are cut off. We learn that a
cook at one of the camps, who has
served fourteen years of a long sen
tence, conducted a restaurant and sold
cakes and pies to the convicts who
earned money from extra work, and
that he had accumulated about $5,OOP.
It doesn’t look like the convict system
in Georgia was so barbarous after all.
Deafness Cannot be Cured.
By local applications, as they cannot reach the dis
eased portions of the ear. There is only one way
to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube.
When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entire
ly closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and this tube re-
etored to its normal condition, bearing will be de-
stioyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an influmed con
dition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case
of Deafness (caused by catarrh' that cannot be
cured by Hall’s Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars,
