Mr. Harrington once made New

Circus day (Thursday of last
week) in Newnan was exceedingly
quiet and orderly from the point
of view of the police force. Only
six arrests were made and the total
lines assessed amounted to only £.'15

hundred dollars in tines.

rests of the week were made Tues
day night by Officers Brewster and
Shackleford. Burton Jones anti
Will Coleman were the negroes
pulled. Tlu*y had been systemati
cally robbing the express company
of liquor for a long time by a very
unique system of forgery. On the
arrival of trains they would stand
around the express office and learn
the name of some negro whose jug
of liquor was in the shipment.
They would then go oil' anti write
an order for the delivery of the
jug to either Coleman or Jones und
sign to the order the name of the
negro to whom the jug had 1sh>h
shipped. The order would then
be presented at the express office
anil the jug delivered to them. In
this way they secured, from time
to time, probably a dozen jugs.

Sterling Silver and Cut Glass
All the world knows the merits of Gorham Sterling Silver und Libby Cut Glass.
It is needless to say anything in reference to the high quality, artistic value
anti wonderful beauty of these goods. They are not surpassed by the products
of any manufacturers of silver and cut glass, and are equalled by few.
While the merits of Gorham Silver and Libby Out Glass are so well known,
the public is probably not so familiar with the extent of our stock ; and to this
fact we would call attention. But few stores in the larger cities make such a
splendid showing of silver and cut glass as may now be seen at this store. The
latest and most artistic patterns in great variety are here. Many of the articles
and pieces are unique. You would hardly expect to find them in anything
smaller than an Atlanta jewelry store.
This great display of magnificent silver and cut glass is worthy of more
than passing'attention, and should be examined with care by prospective pur
chasers of such goods.
For wedding presents there is nothing more appropriate, more useful or
more beautiful than Gorham Silver and Libby Gut Glass.
Ours is the ^tore to look for wedding gifts.
Don’t forget it when you want to buy.
