Miss Lottie White, who was entered in the contest only last week, now hits 1,050 votes to her credit , which shows that Grantville people are beginning to exhibit interest in the contest.

Her son, Archibald, survives him. All the children were present except W. II. Harrington, Jr., who was in California and could not 1h> notified.—Saturday’s Journal. The sad intelligence of Mr. Har rington’s death was received by his friends with genuine regret. Mr. Harrington once made New nan his home, being engaged in the cotton business. He was well known and pppular throughout Georgia and Arkansas. Mr. Har rington was ill only a few hours and his death came as a shock not only to his family but to hundreds of his friends throughout the eonn- try. With the Police Force Mayor’s Court. anil Mr. Harrington Died in Helena, Arkansas. Mrs. \V. A. Turner, Jr., and Mrs. DeWitte Poole are visiting Mr. and Mrs. ('. JL Turner in Carrollton. Mrs. Ham, of Jackson, is the guest of her son, Rev. V. A. Ham. The funeral of Mr. W. H. Har rington, the former Georgian who died last Monday in Helena, Ark., took place in West Point last Thursday. Mr. Harrington had lived in West Point for many years, where he was engaged in the cot ton business. His first wife was Miss Annie Zachry, and four children of that marriage survive Mr. Harrington: Dr. Alfred Harrington, of West Point; and John M., Frank and V. H. Jr., 'all of New York. His 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 or £ to. Two of the parties arrest ed were white circus employes, caught shooting craps; the other arrests were drunk and disorderly negroes. / Lust Sunday two gangs of crap shooters were pulled— one crowd by Chief Brewster and Policeman Shackleford and the other gang by Policemen Fincunnon and Sanders. Mayor Burdett touched the com bined crowd for something over a hundred dollars in tines. Jim Graham, a notorious negro blind tiger operator, was caught last Friday by Policeman Shackle ford. He was fined £50 and paid the fine. Probably the most important ar 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. Registration Notice.

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. H. S. BANTA’S, The Store with a REPUTATION ||; imd 18* .. j&gjsfiwstmimmm
