Nelson has made arrangements to supply a minister for the Episcopal church in this city on the 2nd ami 4th Sundays in each month ami on each 5th Sunday. Services this month will lie conducted by Rev. Mr. Perry of the Church of Incarnation in Atlanta, and the first service will occur next Sunday. The future of the Episcopal church here appears to I*e promis ing. Much interest has been aroused among the members and others persons, chiefly through the efforts of Mrs. C. R. Heidenberg and other ladies of the church. It seems probable that the work will lie so much enlarged at an early date as to justify the employment of the services of a regular pastor for each Sunday in every month.

The Atlanta, Birmingham «A At lantic Railway is surveying a route for a proposed extension of UmL line from Warm Springs to Atlan ta. It. is well known that tile A., B. iA A. proposes to build to At lanta from some point on its main line, and this branch w ill probably be constructed from Warm Springs. In building direct from Warm Springs to Atlanta the A., B. .A A. will run through the southeas tern portion of Coweta county. Henoia is on this route and the road, if built, should go through thut place. This seems to be He- noia’s opportunity to get another railroad. Probably, after passing Henoia, the A., II. & A. would want to pass through Newnan. If so, it will be welcomed up this way. New Water and Light Rates.
