NEWNAN, FRIDAY, DEC. 24.
Locals Brought Forward.
CHRIS 1 M AS DAY.
At the break of Christmas Day.
Through the frosty starlight ringing.
Faint and sweet and far hwhv
Comes the sound of children singing,
Chanting nnd singing,
"Cenae to mourn.
For Christ is born,
Peace and joy to all men bringing!*’
Careless that the chill winds blow.
Growing stronger, sweeter, clearer,
Noiseless footfalls in the snow
Bring the happy voices nearer,
Hear them singing.
"But Christ is here.
Mirth and gladness with Him bringing!’’
"Merry Christmas!” hear them say.
As the oast, is growiag lighter;
May the joy of Christmas Day-
Make your whole year gladder, brighter!”
Join their singing,
"To each home.
Our Chriat has come,
Ail Love’s treasures with Him bringing!”

Every English-speaking man. wo
man and child is interested in the orig
inal American—or, in other words, the
Indian. Those of you who have never
known them except through history
and literature doubtless think of them
as a stern, hard-hearted class of peo
ple. This is not true, for while an In
dian never forgets an injury and will
wait years, if need be, to avenge that
injury, he remembers a kindness equal
ly as long, and will follow one whom
ho loves through thick and thin. The
Indian protects his women at any cost,
and the play which is to be presented
at the auditorium on Dec. 30, entitled
"The Heart of an Indian,” recites the
story of Indian’s love for his sister and
bow he avenges her wrongs. Don’t
miss this play, and don’t forget the
Wednesday evening, at the residence
of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs.
W. H. Hooten, Greenville street.
Miss Sadie M. Hooten was united in
marriage to Mr. Jas. M. Lyle. The
ceremony was impressively performed
by Rev. J. F. Singleton, the only at
tendants being Miss Ola Shannon,
maid of honor, and Mr. Fred Brown,
best man. Prof. Chas. Astin played
the wedding march. The couple stood
tinder a beautiful arch of holly and
wedding bells, and the home was deco
rated throughout in green and white.
The presents were numerous and
handsome, conspicuous among them
being a chest of silver presented by the
young gentlemen friends of the groom.
Refreshments were served, after which
the young couple went to their apart
ments at 30 Salbide avenue, where
they will be at home to their friends.
Uncle Duke Cole reached his 89th
birthday Tuesday, and in celebration of
the event the white employees of the
R. I). Cole Mfg. Co. presented him a
handsome silver loving cun. The pre
sentation was made by Mr. John Sago
in a pretty little speech, who stated
that the gift was a testimonial of the
leve and esteem in which the venera
ble founder of the R. D. Cole Mfg. Co.
was held by every one of the company’s
employees. Uncle Duke was taken
completely by surprise, and was visi
bly affected by this manifestation of
the regard of the men with whom he
had been so long associated, their rela
tions during all the years being more
like those of fellow-laborers than of
employer and employee. The enp is
Mounted on nn ebony base, and is of
’'Joshua Simpkins,” a four-act New
England play, will be presented at the
auditorium next Wednesday night, Dec.
29. The climax of stage realism, it is
asserted, has been reached in the pre
sentation of this stirring saw-mill scene
m ‘‘Joshua Simpkins,” and will be pre
sented in this city by a peculiar me
chanical device which has never been
introduced here before. This saw-mill
scene is claimed to be a vast improve
ment over any attempts in a similar
line. The company also boasts of a
splendid orchestra” which is carried
complete by the organization, to aid in
the presentation of the play, which is
said to abound with musical and danc
ing specialists of a high order. To as
sist ‘‘Joshua Simpkins” in popularity,
a band of music is also carried, and a
concert is given which is said to be far
above anything usually heard with a
traveling musical organization. The
parade will leave the theater at the
asuai time and take the usual route,
making a burlesque parade.

Bob Taylor to Be in Newnan Next
Senator Rob Taylor will lecture in
Carrollton on Thursday. Dec. 30, and
will he accompanied to Newnan on the
following day by Judge VV. C. Adam
son, who will introduce this popular
lecturer to the largest audience ever
assembled to greet and applaud a pub
lic entertainer in Newnan. On this
occasion Senator Taylor will explain in
person that he did not break a contract
with the lyceum bureau last summer,
during Chautauqua, when he failed to
appear as advertised. We have it from
Judge Adamson that Senator Taylor
asserts that he has been grossly mis
represented by the bureau. He says
it hurts him to have his friends in
Newnan even think that, he would
break a contract. No one will doubt
the Senator’s sincerity when one hears
him explain in true Boh Taylor lan
guage how he has been misrepresented
and mistreated by the bureau.
Judge Adamson says that Senator
Taylor is in his happiest mood these
days, and is rejoicing over the prospect
of having another chance to greet a
Newnan audience. Senator Taylor
spoke frankly to Judge Adamson when
he told that he (Tavlor) had never been
more happy or loss constrained than
when speaking to the large audiences
that always greet him at Newnan.
The eloquent Tennesseean will be at
his best, so there is u rare treat in
store for the people of Newnan and vi
cinity on Friday night, Dec. 31.
Death of Judge W. B. W. Dent.
News of the death of Judge W. B.
W. Dent, which occurred Sunday night
at the Soldiers’ Horne in Atlanta, was
a great shock to his Newnan friends.
He was in Newnan only a few days be
fore his death, seemed in excellent
spirits, and greatly enjoyed meeting bis
friends, both in town and country. He
expressed himself as greatly pleased
with the Soldiers’ Home, where he had
been an inmate for several weeks, and
called at The Herald und Advertiser
office to ask that we quote him as say
ing everything commendatory of the
institution that could be said. That
Ignoring the Hone Paper.
We would be glad for some one to tell
us why it is that all over Georgia, the
local paper is ignored when announce
ments ot engagements and marriages
are to be made public. When the child
is born, the local paper must tell about
it. When death enters the home, obit
uary notices are sent the home paper
for publication. When visitors come,
the local paper must take due notice. But
when an engagement is to be announc
ed, the local paper is ignored, and it
is sent to one of the papers in the larg
er eities, where it will be read not by
those who know the contracting parties,
but by strangers, while those who are
interested are kept in ignorance, un
less the local paper copies the an
nouncement, which, if it fails to do,
would bring down anathemas on the
head of the innocent editor. For the
life of us we cannot understand why
the local paper should be thus ignored.

was the last word that the writer had
with him, as he returned to Atlanta
the same day.
Judge Dent was 72 years of age,
and unmarried. He was a veteran of
the Civil War. having gone out as a
member of the Newnan Guards—the
first infantry company that enlisted
from Georgia. He was a genial, warm
hearted man, and much beloved by
those who knew him Pest. For several
years prior to leaving Newnan he
filled the office of U. S. Commissioner,
and had held other offices of minor im
portance at different periods.
The remains were brought to New
nan Tuesday morning. They were met
at the train by an escort from Coweta
Lodge, F. & A. M., and conveyed to
the citv cemetery, where the inter
ment was made with Masonic honors.
Brief funeral services at the grave
were conducted bv Rev. W. J. Cotter,
assisted by Dr. R. J. Bigham.
Hon. William Jennings Bryan has
evidently no designs upon another nomi
nation for the Presidency, and is laying
no plans looking to another campaign
in t912, if we are to judge by the fol
lowing utterance which he is reported
to have made at a banquet given in his
honor at Globe, Arizona; ‘‘I tell people
I never expect to be, or never hope to
be, a candidate for President again.
One reason for not wanting to is that
Mr. Roosevelt, took some of rny policies,
and Mr. Taft is taking the others. If
1 ran again they would raise the ‘third-
term cry’ on me, saying 1 had served
two terms already. And why should a
man have all the annoyance of being
President when h can get men to do
the work for him, leaving me, as 1 am,
to go around and meet friends on occa
sions of this kind and really enjoy life?”
