UWNAN, FRIDAY, J U N E 25.
Wednesday night, at the Methodist
parsonage in Moreland, Rev. T. R.
Kendall, jr., officiating, Mr. Henry L.
Camp, of Moreland, was united in mar
riage to Miss Seba Darden, of Hogans-
ville. The young couple had been
sweethearts for several years, and
when Miss Darden came up to More
land the first of the week to visit
friends they got together and decided
to put the finishing touch to their ro
mance by getting married. Their
friends were taken completely by sur
prise. but they showered blessings and
congratulations upon the happy pair
with a lavishness that testified more
eloquently than words their approval
of the match. The Herald and Adver
tiser joins in these good wishes most
Chautauqua Closes Brilliantly.
The sixth annual session of the New-
nan Chautauqua closed brilliantly Sat
urday night, notwithstanding the
threatening weather, and despite the
fact that Senator Bob Taylor was una
ble, on account of pressing duties at
Washington, to keep his appointment
for the last night of the session. His
place on the programme was ably and
satisafctorily filled, however, by Con
gressman Adamson and by Dr. H. W.
Sears, the well-known and popular
lecturer. Both were at their best, and
it proved to be one of the most enjoy
able entertainments of the week.
It is impossible, in the brief space
allotted to this article, to do justice to
the able array of artists and platform
entertainers who contributed so much
to the pleasure of our people during
the week, but, even at the risk of ap
pearing invidious, we feel that special
praise is due some of these charming
The entertainment furnished by Miss
Evelyn Lewis, reader; Ross Crane,
clay modeler and sketch artist; Sid
Landon and W. Powell Hale, imper
sonators; the Otterbein Male Quar
tette and Matthiesen’s Band and Or
chestra—was excellent and altogether
enjoyable, as everyone will testify.
Passing from this generalization,
particular mention should be made of
the scholarly and eloquent lectures of
Col. Geo. W. Bain, of Kentucky, and
Dr. Edwin M. Poteat, of South Caro
lina. Col. Bain has been on the lecture
platform many years, and that he is
always in demand is the best proof of
his ability and popularity. His two
lectures, “A Searchlight of the Twen
tieth Century” and “If I Could Live
Life Over,” were among the best ever
heard in Newnan. But if Col. Bain
was good, Dr. Poteat was great. His
subject was “The Dwarf’s Guise. ” It
was a profound philosophical analysis
of the folk-lore of the early German
people, as contained in the Neiberlun-
gen. In form and substance and deliv
ery it could not have been better, and
its|application against the misery and
havoc of avarice will never be forgot
ten by those who heard it.
The vocal numbers rendered by Mr. A.
B. Kronfeldt, of New York, were thor
oughly appreciated by lovers of good
music and enjoyed by everyone. Mr.
Kronfeldt is not a professional enter
tainer, but a business man, and_ sings
for pure love of the melody which his
superb tenor enables him to evoke.
He is as accommodating as he is gifted,
too, and his singing was one of the
really enjoyable features of the Chau
Mr. Howard Davis was of course
one of the most popular attractions of
the week, and deservedly so. Compar
atively few of his Newnan friends had
had an opportunity of hearing him sing
since his return from Berlin, Germany,
where he spent over a year under the
tutelage of the world-famous voice-
trainer. Lamperti, and they gave him
an ovation upon each of his appear
ances. His splendid voice—rich, full,
and remarkably sweet—was both a
surprise and a delight to the audience,
and he was frequently and warmly en
We cannot close this hastily written
and imperfect criticism without giving
full praise to Dr. R. J. Bigham for his
admirable platform management dur
ing the week. Genial, bright, and re
sourceful to degree that was alike
charming and helpful, his happy spirit
pervaded everywhere and infected ev
eryone. Indeed, he was regarded by
some as the “best part of the show,”
and we are frankly of the same opin
As a matter of interest to the public
we will state that the chautauaua man
agement just about cleared expenses.
