Miss Carrie Ball, for many years a
resident of Newnan, died suddenly
Tuesday afternoon, at Milledgeviile.
She had been a patient at the State San-
atarium for some time, was apparently
in good health, and the news of her
death was a great shock to her family
and friends. She was about 70 years of
age. The remains were brought to
Newnan Wednesday night, and yester
day were carried out to Emory Chapel
The excellent results obtained from
the application of nitrate of soda to
corn and oat crops the past season by
some of our more progressive farmers
is causing many others to use it this
year, and there is considerable demand
for it. Experiments made in this coun
ty demonstrate beyond question that,
nitrate of soda, judiciously applied to
either corn, wheat or oats, will in
crease the yield enormously—more
tkan offsetting the apparently high
eftst of this remarkable plant-grower.
The Reading Circle met yesterday
afternoon at the home of Miss Laura
Peddy. The first hour was devoted to
current events. Mrs. T. E. Atkinson,

photographs. Mrs. Thos. J. Jones,
Mrs. T. E. Atkinson, Mrs. A. M. Nor

Rawls contributed to the regular pro
gramme. Rome will be the subject for
next week, and the circle will meet
with Mrs. T. F. Rawls.
The directors of the Grantviile Hos
iery Mill met yesterday and declared a
semi-annual dividend of 3 per cent.
The mill is running to its full capacity,
and under the capable management of
Mr. W. N. Banks is enjoying a prosper
ous business. The matter of filling the
office of president, made vacant by the
recent death of Mr. N. O. Banks, was
deferred until the annual meeting of
the stockholders in January. During
the interval the executive affairs of the
company will be looked after by Hon.
W. A. Post, vice-president.
By direction of the City Council
Chief Shackleford has been engaged
the past month in taking the city cen
sus. Up to yesterday the enumeration
aggregated nearly 5,100 souls, all of
whom reside within the present corpor
ate limits, and additions yet to be
made will carry the total to 6,150 or
more. When the bill now pending in
the Legislature becomes a law and the
city’s limits are extended a quarter of
a mile, as is contemplated, Newnan’s
total population will reach 6,000, which
will be an increase of 2,600 over the
census figures of 1900.
Mr. J. W. Abercrombie, who bought
the Coweta Creamery at the public

that he is overhauling the plant and

Monday. He will take all the milk he
can get. paying for same on a butter

Garrard, of Columbus, was elected sec

L. H. Hill, who tendered his resigna

qualifications. He is a graduate of the

"In The Herald and Advertiser last
week you were good enough to give
credit for the successful management
of McIntosh Mills during the past eight
months to me and my official co-work
ers,” said Mr. B. T. Thompson, presi
dent of the company, yesterday. “It
was very kind of you, and personally
gratifying, of course; but 1 wish it
known that Mr. I,. H. Hill, secretary
and treasurer, and Mr. T. E. Lovvern,
superintendent, are really entitled to
most credit for the excellent showing
that the mills have made since I as
sumed the presidency. 1 have taken
care of the financial end of the busi
ness, and looked after other matters of
an executive nature to the best of my
ability: hut the practical management
of the mills during the period named
remained entirely in the hands of
Messrs. Hill and Lovvern. Say this
much for me, please.”
Under the provisions of the paving
ordinance adopted by the City Council
a short time ago, by the terms of
which the city agrees to pay half the
cost of tiling the sidewalks, the street
committee decided to expend the en
tire sum ($2,000) appropriated for this
purpose the present year in tiling walks
on Jackson street, Temple avenue and
College street, as follows: From M.
G. Keith’s corner to M, G. Farmer’s
corner, Jackson street; from L. B.
Mann’s corner to ,J. S. Gibson’s cor
ner, Temple avenue; from Mrs. E. S.
Dent’s corner to Dr. W. A. Turner’s
corner, College street-making about
4,200 feet in all. The walks are to be
six feet wide the entire distance. C.
M. Amis it Co. have the contract, and
the work, which has already com
menced, is being done under the gener
al supervision of Alderman H. C. Ar
nall, jr., chairman of the street com
A bill has been introduced in the
Legislature by a member from one of
the back settlements to abolish the of
fice of County Treasurer. The hill
should be killed on the spot. This of
fice has been a veritable godsend to
many a poor, decrepit old, citizen, who
was unable either to work at manual
labor or to perform the more exacting
and intricate duties required in the oth
er county offices—that of Clerk, Tax Re
ceiver, or Tax Collector, for example.
In Coweta county it has been the rule
for many years to give the office of
Treasurer to some deserving old citizen
wlio, by reason of age, feebleness or
physical affliction, was unable to earn a
support by his own efforts. The office
is rotated every two years, and has
been the means of relieving genuine
distress in a number of instances that
can be recalled. In fact, the office of
Treasurer is a very useful institution
in Coweta, as it: doubtless is in other
counties, and we couldn’t get along

A new farmers’ telephone line, hav
ing six subscribers, has just been con
nected with the Newnan exchange of
the Southern Bell Telephone Co. The
line extends 8 miles out the Carrollton
road, and furnishes service to the fol
lowing well - known people : Wahoo
Manufacturing Co., office; Wahoo Man
ufacturing Co., store; Dr. R. I.. Hood,
residence; Richard Jackson, residence:
T. B. Jones, residence; J. P. Ji n‘H,
residence. The subscribers on the line
are now in constant telephonic commu
nication with each other, and through
the Southern Bell exchange with tele
phone users in Newnan. The construc
tion of this line and its connection with
the telephone eexhange here is another
step in the progress of telephone devel
opment which is being made by the
residents in the rural sections of Cowe
ta county. Under the plan of the
Southern Bell Co. farmers and other
rural dwellers are enabled to secure
telephone service on an economical ba
sis. As a result, farmers in all sec
tions of the State are installing tele
phones in their homes.
Card of Thanks.
We take this method of thanking our
friends and neighbors for their kind
ness and assistance to us during the
illness and upon the death of our daugh
ter. Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Addy.
Haralson, Ga., July 7th.
Some eight or nine years ago
we opened our doors to the Nevy-
nan public in a store-robm 18x66
feet. We had only about $500 to
put into business, but believed we
knew what the people wanted;
we knew we were capable of serv
ing them properly and promptly;
so we began. Since then our
every aim has been to give the
people their full money’s worth
to give them the best drug store
we are capable of conducting to
make the place attractive,
To-day we are occupying some
thing over 60,000 square feet, of
lloor space, operate our own elec
tric light plant, our own machin
ery for manufacturing ice cream,
etc., and are paying taxes on
more property than any other
drug store in Coweta county.
We have always stood for prog
ress, and the pace we have set
has been hard to follow. New
nan now has the best drug stores
of any city of its size in the State.
We are largely responsible for it.
It is with a reasonable amount
of pride that we call attention to
We thank you for the patron
age which has made this possible.
