COTTON RECEIPTS ENGINEER KILLED
STILL SHORT HERE. IN CENTRAL WRECK.
Newnan’s cotton receipts are
still liehind those of hist season,
and it does not seem probable that
the lost ground will be regained.
In other words, this year’s crop is
evidently smaller than last year’s
in this county, as the same story
of short receipts comes from all
other points in the county.
The figures given out on Dec.
1st by J. H. .Summers, who keeps
a careful record of Newnan’s re
ceipts, are as follows:
Receipts to Dec. 1st this season,
11,721 bales; to same date last sea
son, 13,(570 bales.
Stock on Dec. 1st this season.
A disastrous wreck occurred
about 4:30 o'clock Wednesday
morning at Raymond, six miles

An extra freight running west
encountered a switch left open and
derailed the train, overturning the
engine and six cars. Engineer
Norton was found pinioned under
the debris with his neck broken,
both feet crushed and horribly
bruised about the body.
The negro fireman sustained a
broken hip and painful bruises. A
