The engineering corps engaged in lo
cating the line of the Western of Geor

fact that this is the final survey, and

grades and fills that will be encounter
ed on the route. Mr. 1. L. McCord, of
New York, who has the contract for
the construction of the road, and who
was expected in Newnan the first of

will probably get here to-morrow.

At the meeting of the County Board
of Education on Tuesday last County
School Commissioner Ham’s recom
mendation that the summer term of
the pubile schools be extended until
Sept. 10 was approved. This was done
to enable children who have been kept
out of school on account of the urgency
of farm work to make up the time thus
lost. By the way, it may cause sur
prise to learn that 94 per cent, of the
children of school age in Coweta coun
ty, including both white and colored,
attend the public schools — yet this
is the statement made by the County
School Commissioner. We doubt if any
county in the State can show so high
Mr. J. H. Dunlap, of Rocky Mount,
was in the city yesterday, and brought
with him from his farm in Meriwether
some fine specimens of the “wonder
berry”—a new and hitherto unknown
product in this section. The seed were
obtained by Mrs. Dunlap from a seeds
man in New York, and were germina
ted in a box filled with earth, in the
same manner that tomato plants are
started. The plants were then set out
in rows and cultivated with plow and
hoe. They attained a vigorous growth,
the limbs branching out like those of
the cotton-stalk, and Mr. Dunlap says
each limb is heavily fruited. The ber
ries are a little larger than cherries,
deep black in color, and have a rather
insipid taste, but are said to be excel
lent for preserving purposes.

L. H. Brown, a negro teacher who
has been in charge of the school at Ne-
riah church, between Senoia and Har
alson, is now out of a job. Early in
the year Brown applied for the school
referred to, and, exhibiting a State li
cense as proof of his eligibility and
competency, County School Commis
sioner Ham made a contract with him
to teach the school. Some weeks ago,
however. Commissioner Ham learned
that Brown, before coming to Coweta
county, had been arraigned in the City
Court of Cordele on the charge of cot
ton-stealing. He investigated the ru
mor and found it to be true ;—moreover,
that Brown was convicted and sen
tenced to pay a fine of $125. When as
sured of these facts Commissioner Ham
canceled the contract with Brown, and
he was promptly deposed as teacher of
the Neriah school. All the facts in the
case have since been communicated to
the State School Commissioner, and the
prospects are that Brown’s license will
