vote of M t’O' 16. The question of sus-

of suspension will be sustained, so far

an extra session for the purpose of
trying McLendon on the impeachment
charges preferred by the House. In
this case, again, the Senate would sit
as a Court of Impeachment, and Mc

An honored guest of the occasiot
was Mrs. Anzora Brooks, of Cedar
town, the youngest sister of Leonarc
Walthall, and the only living membei
of that large family. Although Mrs.
Brooks is growing old in years, there
was no one present whose step was
more elastic, whose laugh was more
joyous, or whose repartee was more
ready. She is the living embodiment
of the old axiom that “we are just as
old as we feel. ”
Another honored guest was Uncle
Geo. E. Young, of Newnan, who, it
will be remembered, married Miss
Martha Walthall. Uncle George is
now the oldest member of a large body
relatives, and is hale'and hearty.
Among the other guests were Miss
Onita Askew of Sparks, Ga., R. E.
Brooks of Cedartown, Miss Olivia
Young of Newnan, Mrs. Mary Jane
Car/nical, Jas. Bowers and Lawson
Chestnut of White Oak.
Dinner was served beneath ancestral
trees, and the table fairly groaned un
der its burden of good things to eat.
The menu consisted of barbecued meats,
Brunswick stew, home-made light-
bread, pickles and cakes. No menu
could have been more tempting, and
those present attested their approval
by the heartiness with which they ate,
the only regret being that they could
eat no more.
It is our wish that those who were
absent this year will be present at the
next reunion, and that they may have
an unbroken family circle for many
years to come. A Guest. B8
