* Athens, January, 23, 1880.
t papS* filled with
t first, Georgia
IRSlir tieles from our
< xchaugcs to reproduce for our read*
< ra wo always look first through the
Georgia papers, of which wo get
nearly every one. -Heuce it is that
I ho Banner this morning Is exclusive*
ly Georgian. It is mo doubt the only
I xclusivc Georgia paper in the State
today. Look ovor the other |>aporf
jn your reach. You will find them
j lied largely with worthless, spiua-
lioual, and in totuo casco indecent
matter reproduced from northern
I beets and transmitted over the wires
Ly what is called the Associated Press
Agency, whose headquarters are in
Kcw York. The Banner gives you,
in place of such stulf, the news of your
f.wn town, your own state, your own
neighbors. Instead of placing before
•*ou and your family the details of some
revolting crime or demoralizing scan
•Ini it prints the interesting account
that a Georgia paper gives of a Gcor-
•pa Go’din Weddii.g. Is it not a
pleasing and profitable picture to con*
template,—that cheery old couple in
Meriwether county, after journeying
together through fifty years of wed*
<lcd life, celebrating tbo fiftieth auni-
\orsary of their weddingsday
■with their children, grand-children,
gieat'grand-ehildrcn, and ,* loving
neighbors around them?
And do you not feel a true Geor*
gimps pride in the noble and talented
woman so graphically sketched by the
correspondent of our Georgia fpaper,
The tSmwy t South ? Hadn’t the
girls of Georgia far
better lake her for a model than the
^tainted, beflowered and bediainond*
•id creatures who nightly throng the
•salons of Fashion, and whoso highest
ambition is to be gazetted lo the
world as surpassing all others in the
tinsel trappings ot the
milliner and the jeweler’s glittering
Thu words of the Millodgc*
\ille paper on the occasion of the con
version of the old enpitol into a school
building are few and short but elo*
ejucnt with memories of a glorious
past. It is a building around which
Georgians’ loudest and proudest
memories cluster, and wo feel that it
could he used for no nobler purpose
than as a school-house whoro Georgia
youths of to-day are prepared to
maintain the commonwealth’s ancient
renown,—achieved for her by the
'Titans of old who trod those halls
Athenian though you be, you are
obliged to yield your admiration to
our plucky little sister town on the
other side of the Stato that 1ms enter
ed so dauntlossly into the contest with
larger and wealthier cities for that rich
prize, the Normal School. If pluck
and public spirit win, Newnan will be
tbo fortunate place.

Few can present a fairer or more
able record of earnest and faith! ui

excellencies of eharacler. We eu

Of our deceased friend it may well

Nor let us mourn that he seems to
