Cartersville Lady’s Luck.

Mr. Cobb Goes to Look After Inheritance of Mrs. Lang.

Mr. Geo. S. Cobb returned last week from South Carolina, after an absence of ten days. He visited Edgefield, Greenwood, Laurens and Greenville counties and reports crop prospects as very favorable, and the country showing unmistakable signs of prosperity. Many of the towns have taken on new life and cotton factories and oil mills are the rule and not the exception in all towns of 1,500 to 2,000 inhabitants. Mr. Cobb went to Carolina in the interest of his friend, Mrs. Elizabeth Lang, whose many friends in Cartersville and Bartow county will rejoice with her in her own good fortune which has recently befallen her. By the will of an uncle who died some years since, she has just come into possession of a valuable estate in South Carolina. Armed with a power of attorney, Mr. Cobb went to South Carolina and formally took possession of it for her.
