we all knew him and loved him.
For more than a half century by
faithful service and a spotless life
and by abundant labors, he gave

imitate. He was a strong man

his mind, bol/i and earnest in his
convictions, and pure and full of
prayer in his religious experiences.
He walked close with God and
keptin touch with humanity. His
sympathies for the suffering were
sincere,and his sacrifices to relieve
distress were made with cheerful

officers are J. (). Norris, president,
and I. M. Htarr, cashier. Its first
routine business was to pay for a

at 10 cents per pound. On last
evening, a public reception was
held, which was attended by > the
citizens of the town and commun

Last Tuesday night H. B. draw
ford, of Columbus, W. A. Win
burn and H. M. Htaele, of Ha van-

liscuNs plans for the new railroad.
Mr. Winburn said “thut after
onsidering the cost of construc
tion, and right of way, he found
that the road would costa great
deal more than he thought at
first.” He furthermore said that,
the probability of the road would
rest, in it large measure, with the
men owning land through which
the railroad w as to pass. Newnan
has agreed to secure the right of
way as far south as Lnthersville,
and to do all in her power to make
the road a certainty.

tee consisting of Messrs. It. .1. At.

Lnthersville, in order to secure the
right of way to that point.
