NEWNAN, FIRDAY, APR. 23.
LOCALS BROUGHT hORWARI).
The announcement yesterday of the
marriage of Miss Carobel Glover to
l)r. R. H. McDonald, of Manchester,
came as u surprise to the many friends
in Macon of the bride, who has often
visited here as Hhe guest of her sis
ter, Mrs. Jack Massee, and who has a
host of friends in the city. The marri
age took place April 11, at Warm
Springs, where Miss Glover and her
mother were guests, and where the
romance began. Mrs. McDonald’s
home was in Americus, where she was
always one of the most popular of the
younger set. Dr. McDonald is a phy
sician of much prominence in Man
chester, and has a host of friends
throughout the State, who are offering
their congratulations. — Macon Tele

A marriage of much interest to their
many friends was that of Miss Irene
Hunter, of this city, to Mr. J. T. Pike,
of Newnan, which occurred Tuesday
evening at 3 o’clock, at the residence
of Mr. C. N. Pike, on Park avenue.
The ceremony was performed by Rev.
S. A. Harris, pastor of the First Meth
odist church. Only the relatives and a
few special friends were present. Af
ter the ceremony refreshments were
served, after which the bridal party
left in cars for Newnan, the future
home of Mr. and Mrs. Pike. Mrs. Pike
is a young woman of charming person
ality, and a favorite among the young
set in this city. Mr. Pike is a young
man of sterling worth, and holds a re
sponsible position in Newnan. Their
many friends join The Graphic in con
gratulations.—LaGrange Graphic, 22d
Newnan friends of Major Wallace J.
Barnard have learned with deep regret
of his death, which occurred Monday in
San Francisco, Cal., where he had
made his home for several years after
leaving Georgia. He formerly resided
in Newnan, and was widely known in
this section of the State. He was a
Confederate veteran, serving through
out the war as sergeant-major of the
36tn Tennessee regiment. At one time
he was on the staff of Gov. Gordon.
He was twice married, his wife and
two children by his last marriage (Mrs.
R. A. Greer, of San Francisco, and H.
H. Barnard, of Rogers, Texas,) sur
viving him. He leaves also three
daughters by a former marriage—Mrs.
B. M. Boykin and Mrs. C. F. C.oppedge,
of Atlanta, and Mrs. W. H. Gillette, of
Lake Helen, Fla. He was a member
of Atlanta Camp, U. C. V.
About 11 o’clock Wednesday night
the residence of Mr. Sanders Gibson,
at the corner of Temple avenue and
College street, was discovered on fire,
and before the flames could be subdued
the handsome home was practically de
stroyed. Most of theffurniture and all
of the family’s wearing apparel were
lost, and none of the contents of upper
rooms were saved. The fire is supposed
to have originated in the kitchen, and
had made considerable headway before
P was discovered. It made a fierce
blaze, and but for the good work of the
fire department buildings adjacent to
the Gibson home would undoubtedly
have suffered serious damage also. Mr.
Gibson’s loss is fairly well covered by
insurance, it is thought, the residence
carrying $5,000 and the furniture $1,000.
The family are stopping temporarily
with Mrs. Wade Dent, their next door
The many friends of Mr. Will Orr
were greatly shocked Monday to learn
of his death, which occurred suddenly
at an early hour Monday morning at
his home in the Sixth district. Mr. Orr
received a serious injury in an accident
five or six years ago, and suffered al
most continually from this cause. Two
weeks before his death he was brought
to Newnan for an operation which it
was hoped would relieve his trouble,
but it was not undertaken at the time
and he returned home. His death is
supposed to have been attributable in
directly to the injury referred to.
Deceased waB a son of Hon. W. B. Orr,
of this city, and is survived by his wife
and five children—Dallas, Sarah, Bernie,
Robert and Brewster. The funeral took
place at Sharpsburg Tuesday morning,
services being conducted by'Rev. E. C.

In a fast and snappy game yesterday
Matty’s men defeated a strong team
from Atlanta by the score of ti to 1.
The game was won in the first inning,
when the locals jumped on Southpaw
Keene and hammered out 6 runs.
Brown, who relieved Keene in the sec
ond, showed a world of stuff, and held
the locals scoreless. Sewell pitched a
nice game for Newnan, retiring in the
eighth inning, after giving up but three
singles. The visitors made their lone
tally off of Elder. The locals played a
nice game in the field, their one error
being chargeable to a wild blare by

TEN WEEKS IN BED -EMINENT
I wish to inform you of the great
benefit 1 have derived from the use of
Swamp-Root. I had been a sufferer
for more than twenty years from kid
ney and liver trouble and was almost
constantly treated by the most emi
nent physicians, who could only give me
temporary relief. I had been in bed
ten weekH when I began the use of
Swamp-Root. Inside of twenty-four
hours I could see that I had been great
ly benefited. I continued to use Swamp-
Root until I had used several bottles,
when I really felt that my old trouble
was completely cured, and I am posi
tive that any person suffering with kid
ney or liver trouble can be cured by
the use of this preparation.
I am now in the best of health, bet
ter than I have been for ten years or
more. I do not know how to express
myself as strongly as 1 desire, in favor
of Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-Root, as 1 am
sure that it saved any life and that my
good health is due entirely to this
great remedy. I heartily recommend
it to every sufferer and am confident
they can be benefited ns I have been.
It is a pleasure for me, gentlemen, to
hand you this recommendation.
