Newnan had a very quiet Christmas.
In fact, no casualties were reported
from any section of the county, and
there was hut little rowdyism— attribu
table in part, perhaps, to the execra
ble weather, which was so cold and
sloppy on Christmas Day as to effect
ually dampen the enthusiasm of would-
be celebrants. There were numerous
dinings and family gatherings during
the week, however, and these func
tions furnished much enjoyment to the
favored guests and homecoming k ms-
people. Taken alogelt.er, though, it
has been a dull Christmas.

wedding, the young couple left upon
an extended brutal tour before going to
their home in Birmingham. The groom

Orphans’ Home, at Hnpeville, on
Christmas Day. After a round of mer
ry games a Christmas dinner of Heveral
