Senoia Enter prise-Gazette. Mr. G. B. Barr, the clever A. & W. P. agent at Newnan, was down Satur day to mingle with his Franklin friends, and attended the fish-fry at Tompkins’ mill. He is a lover of the finny tribe, and was prompt to assert that he had never tasted finer fish than those cooked while they kicked for Saturday’s picnic dinner. Franklin News and Banner. Newnan’s three national banks held their semi-annual meetings this week, and distributed several thousand dollars in dividends to their stockholders. The First National declared a semi-annual dividend of (5 per cent., the Coweta National paid 4 per cent., and the Manufacturers National 3 per cent. Besides paying a dividend, each bank carried a snug Slim to undivided protfis. Dr. J. D. Turner, a pioneer citizen of Atlanta and president of the Exposi tion Cotton Mills, died in that city Tuesday—aged 70. Shortly after the war Dr. Turner located at Grantville, this county, where he opened a drug store and practiced medicine for sever al years before moving to Atlanta. He is well remembered by many of our older citizens, who regret to learn of his death. The residence occupied by Dr. Z. Greene and family, on Greenville street, caught fire late Saturday after noon and was burned to the ground. The fire was caused by a defective flue in the kitchen, and by the time the fire department reached the scene the flames had made such headway it whs found impossible to save the building. A quantity of furniture and other household goods were saved, however, though in a more or less damaged con dition. The residence was the property of Mr. Calhoun Caldwell, and both the building and furniture were insured. A much-traveled lady, now visiting in Newnan, pays Cole’s bakery a high compliment. She has resided in sever al of the big cities of the country, and visited many others, but says she has never found anywhere such excellent bread as is furnished daily by Cole’s bakery. She considers Newnan fortu nate in having an establishment where sweet, wholesome bread may be had at every meal—especially so in view of the scarcity of competent domestic help and the “bum” cooking one is forced to put up with in most of the towns in this part of the country. Mr. H. C. Warlick will leave to-mor row for Rochester, N. Y., where he will attend the National Convention of Photographers. He will also spend a couple of weeks visiting the leading studios in the larger cities—New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and other points where the art of photography has been brought to its highest development. He expects to gather many new ideas that will prove helpful to him in his work, and will be better prepared than ever to meet the growing demand for artistic photography. While he is rway his studio will be in charge of a competent man. The meeting at Lhe First Baptist church, which closed Monday night, was one of the greatest revivals that the church has ever enjoyed. There were thirty-five additions to the mem bership—twenty-five by profession and ten by letter. The candidates for bap tism were received into the church Wednesday night, the ordinance being administered by the pastor, Rev. .1. F. Singleton. Our people have seldom listened to stronger or more heart-mov ing exhortations than were delivered by Rev. C. A. Stewart durinx the meeting, and he will always have a warm place in their hearts. The police flushed three “blind ti gers” this week, arid made as many arrests, the victims of police vigilance being Horace Thomas, white, and Jim Brown and Tom Brown, colored. All were arraigned before Mayor Keith, and after it was shown that the offend ers had been “caught with the goods” fines were imposed as follows: Horace Thomas, $36 or 30 days; Jim Brown and Tom Brown, $50 each or 30 days. Horace Thomas and Tom Brown paid the fines assessed, but Jim Brown gave notice that he would carry his case to the City Court, and has employed Col. W. G. Post to represent him in the higher tribunal. Louis Bell, a young white man who was arrested and lodged in jail on the 19th ult. on a warrant charging him with criminal assault upon the person of Nannie Lee Callahan, the 18-year- old daughter of R. L. Callahan, had a preliminary hearing before Judge W. C. Kinnard on Monday last.
