“Over The Town.” Mayor Wofford now wears a broad, bland smile and doesn’t seem to care who is elected to succeed him in office. It is a boy.


Wandering In The Streets.

Sheriff Roberts has received a letter from J. A. Franks, of the metropolitan police department, of Washington D. C., who says that “on the 5th instant an old colored woman, aged 65 or 70 years, was found wandering in our streets and has been temporarily cared for. She informs us that her name is Ellen Curby, or Kirby, that her home is Cartersville, your state, and that she has a son named James Curby, or Kirby, in Cartersville, working in a mill. She appears to be unable to tell just how she got here.”

Sheriff Roberts is unable to furnish the desired information. Perhaps some of our readers can.
