Gainesville's society girls have never
been so repeatedly and charmingly
entertained as during the last few
months, An occasion fully as pleasur
able as any of the many was the Pro
gressive Domino Party given by Miss
Beulah Evans at her home on K. Wash
ington street, Friday from 3 to 5. This
old game, honored through its antiquity
was reviewed and played interestingly
by the fair contestants. Miss Evans
proved a hostess of tact and her enter
tainment was pronounced by each
favored guest a success in every respect.
Those invited were: Misses Trotter,
Banks, Dunlap, Green, Sanders,
Moreno, Dorsey, Law, Jackson, Can

of Rev. J. A. Wynne and his gentlemen
friends. The hostess is a woman of
rare culture; a lady in the manifold
meaning of that little word, and as
such was perfect in the role of the lady
of the home. The little body of rep
resentative men gathered around the
bountiful board were: Rev. J. A.

A Candler club was organized at the
court house last Saturday night with a
very large membership. Judge J. B.
Estes was elected president, and Mr. J
C. Boone was elected secretary.
Last w r eek a call was issued for the
organization of a Candler club which
was signed by a large number of citi
zens. The list for signatures was cir
culated and when the meeting was
called to order Saturday night an en
thusiastic crowd of Candler men were

by the president to assist the central
committee in the management of the
The club also invited Colonel Can
dler to open his campaign in Gaines
ville at such date as was suitable to
him. This invitation was conveyed to
Colonel Candler by Secretary Boone
Tuesday, and it is expected that
Colonel Candler will accept the invita
tion and name a date for the grand
rally. It was the sense of the club
that the distinguished Georgian should
open his campaign in his home town
and allow his home people to start the
work off with a grand jubilee.
The club will meet again tonigjit at
the court house at 8 o’clock, and a cor
dial invitation is extended every friend
of Colonel Candler to be present.
RIFLES HAVE ARMS.
Have Given Bond to the State For
The Piedmont Rifles have given bond
for their arms and accoutrements and
in all probability they will arrive from
Atlanta today. Mr. Jasper N. Dorsey
went to Atlanta Wednesday for the
purpose of laying the matter before the
authorities and succeeded in having the
following arms issued to the company.:
45 Springfield rifles with bayonets and
scabbards; 45 campaign hats; 45 pairs
leggins; 45 canteens and straps; 45
blanket bags and straps; 45 haver
sacks and straps; 45 web belts; 45 gun
slings; 1000 rounds ball cartridges; 500
rounds blank cartridges.
The officers of the company will?
probably stand an examination before
the board next week when commissions
will be issued them. The company is
getting in fine shape now and will be
gin work in earnest to become the best
company in the state. The members
will doubtless take more interest now
than ever before.
It is understood that the Rifles will
attend the unveiling of the monument
at Chickamauga in May.

A Big Still.
Deputy Collector E. L. Bergstrom
made a big haul in White county
Thursday. He captured m the middle
of the Chattahoochee river a seventy-
five gallon still and 2000 gallons of
beer. The still was situated on an
island and was covered with heavy
undergrowth so that it would probably
have never been discovered had not
the smoke been seen curling up. Col
lector Bergstrom was accompanied Vv
Mr. E. Martin and as soon as the officers
were seen the operators of the still
plunged into the river and -.warn to the
opposite shore. It was rather a cold
swim but the men got away. The
owners of the still were Alonzo and
