Seventy Years Old.

Last Wednesday was the seventieth birth-day of Col. J. W. Harris.  He celebrated the day by having all of his children to dine with him.  The writer of this knew Col. Harris more than a third of a century ago.  He walks the streets of Cartersville as he did Broad street of Athens a third of a century ago.  It seems he wears the same old hat—a beaver—that he then wore.  His old life is going, and, perhaps, no old life is going more pleasantly.  Surrounded by his children and grand-children the spring-tide of life, with beautiful flowers, flush in their sweetness to crown with glory his three score years and ten.
