BURIED A HUNDRED YEARS
BODY STANDS UPRIGHT
After lying peacefully in the
grave for more than ' a hundred
years, the remains of two former
citizens of this town stand upright
above the place of their long sleep,
as the result of the terriffic storm
which swept this section last week.
Buried in the old cemetery sa long
ago that no mark is left to show who
the dead were, and so long ago that
a massive oak tree had grown up
over the graves, two skeletons were
raised above the level of the ground
and stood almost upright when tha
tree was uprooted by the storm. The
roots of the tree seem to have grown
around the coffins, wrapping them
completely up, and while the coffins
have long since gone to decay, these
roots have formed a new casket, in
which the remains have lain until
raising by the falling -of - the great

Mrs. Styles was busy in the home
when the fire was discovered be
tween the ceiling and the roof and
the response to the fire whistle

Practically the entire contents of
the house were removed to nearby

a four room wood structure, was

the fight to save this and other
structures. The cottage is next door

on the south is a cottage owned by
Mr. Lish Oakes and occupied by Mr.
and Mrs. Willis Day.

MONDAY and THURSDAY
“HISTORY OF THE
lion. S. G. McLendon, secretary
of State, has just published a most
interesting “History of the Public
Domain of Georgia.”
The book should be used in every
school in Georgia and every citizen
of the state should have a copy of:
this most valuable book in his home.
Below we print a few criticisms
from competent judges:
Chancellor Barrow, of the Univer
sity of Georgia: "I have read the
book with interest and profit. You
have added to the list of valuable
services to the state by this work.”
Dr. L. L. Knight, State Historian:
“It is a wonderful contribution to
the state's history which Mr. Mc-
Lendon has made; —a wonderful
contribution to Americana.”
Dr. N. H. Ballard, State Superin
tendent of Schools: "A great contri
bution to Georgia history.”
Atlanta Constitution: "The Con
stitution unreservedly congratulates
the author upon the great service he
has rendered those living, and the
future generations, in the prepara
tion of this remarkable volume.”
Savannah News: “A distinct and
valuable Contribution to Georgia his
tory. It ia as interesting as a novel
and brings to present day freshness
the chronicles of former days.”
Macon Telegraph: “A special val
ue of the book lies in the fact that it
is very largely documentary, and,
therefore, the facts presented are
Athens Banner-Herald: “This his
tory of the Public Domain of Geor
gia is a valuabe record, and should
be included in the list of text books
for every high school in the state.”

Rev Pierce Harris has captivated
his audiences by his strong »*ul ap
pealing sermons, which have made a*
very deep impression upon the en
tire community. He leaves for his
home in Buford after preaching Fri
An interesting fact this week has
bean the voluntary closing of the
business houses in town for the af
ternoon services, and the attendance
of the men upon the services has
been marked. This was a splendid
thing for the business men to do.
The attendance of the children
and young people has been remark
able. Thay have manifested a very'’
deep interest from the very' begin--
ning, and the Junior Choir has add
ed much to the music. The music„
with just the home folk and visitors
singing, has been very good, and
through Wednesday night the fol
lowing had joined the church: Imo
ger.e Byrd, P. D. Green, Nellie
Camp, Horned Davis, Garland Free
man, Samuel Hinton, Coy Keheley,.
and Henry Price.
On next Sunday morning there
wiil be a special “Mother’s Day’”
service at which time the pastor will
preach on an appropriate theme. At
the evening service Sunday the re
vival will come to a close with the
beautiful baptismal service and the
reception of the new members.
Everyone is cordially invited to
attend all these services.
