Atlanta, will deliver a sermon in
Newnan next Sunday .morning at.
the usual hour, in the Methodist
church. Sunday evening he will
preach again, this time in the
Auditorium. The mere announce

is one of the South’s
greatest pulpit orators and never
lacks hearers when he delivers a
sermon in ahy section ’ of the

Interest throughout the meeting

The residence of J. T. Williams,
near the Pinson Hotel, was dis
covered on fire today about noon.
When the tire fighters arrived on
the ground the entire top and roof
of the house was in flames. In a
few minutes four streams of water
were playing on the fire, and af-
.ter a gallant fight it was subdued;
and the building, in a badly dam
aged condition, was saved. The
fire department was given valu
able aid by the hands from the
Cole shops, situated just, in the
rear of the Williams home. Two
lines of hose were laid from the
shops and the Cole employes
proved their mettle as fire fight
ers. Without this timely assist
ance the fire would probably not
have been subdued by the fire
All of Mr. Williams’ household
goods were removed from the
burning home in fairly good con
dition, so that the greatest dam
age is to the house. This will
amount to several hundred dol
lars, but is fully covered by $1,-
000 insurance. The household
goods were, also, fully insured.
Mr. Williams is proprietor of
the Newnan Bottling Works and
operates his plant in the basement
of his home. The bottling plant
was not damaged.
The origin of this fire is a mys
tery. It did not catch from the
stove flue, as the kitchen was the
last portion of the house to burst
into (lames and was damaged but
little, The fire was confined, at
first, between the ceiling and the
room of tlie main portion of the
building, but how it originated is
a problem that Mr. Williams, nor
any other person, iH able to solve.
