A Family Reunion.

Family reunions are becoming quite common and there are no occasions where the participants experience more real enjoyment.

When members of a family become scattered and the absence from the old roof tree cause a callous feeling in regard to the old kinship ties, to meet again and commingle for awhile around the parental hearthstone revives in their fullest fervor the old family love and affection. The fond parents experience great joy at being surrounded by children and grand children while a thrill of ecstasy permeates the frames of each of the others down to the prattling babes.

At the home of Mr. C. G. Trammell this week has been gathered members of the their family as follows:

Mr. Lee Trammell and wife, Madison, Ga.
Mr. and Mrs. T. P. Trammell.
Master Walker Trammell, little Anna Louise Trammell, Rev. Walker Lewis and wife, Masters Linton, Carl, Wales and McTyiere Lewis, Nashville.

The regular immediate family of Mr. and Mrs. Trammel at home, consisting of seven persons, there were present at this reunion in all nineteen persons.

The old family servant was not forgotten when invitations went out and was present to enjoy seeing again so many whom she had faithfully served.

Mr. Trammell is one of our best citizens, while his wife is a noble Christian lady. They have reared a family of whom any parents might feel proud. May they all live to yet experience to enjoy numerous like gatherings.

A Seventeenth District Monstrosity.

Rev. E. E. Harling said to a Courant-American reporter yesterday: “Never felt more gratified than I do now. A great many predicted that I would die before taking the census in the Seventeenth district. I am in as good health, or better, than when I commenced the work, and am now ready to make my returns to Mr. Haley, the supervisor. I have found a monstrosity in the Seventeenth district. It is a boneless child, about twelve years old—a male—never has spoken a word, walked a step or eaten a bite that his mother has not chewed for him. He is the son of John Stockman, of Euharlee, and weighs only about twenty pounds.”

The census enumerator gave our town a call last week and puzzled not a few with the thousand and one questions. Wonder how many more will be added in the next ten years?


Dr. Barnesly looks very pleasing now on account of its being a girl.
