To all whom it may concern: David W. Curry having in proper form applied to me for permanent Letters of Administration on the estate of Jno. H. Ruckman, late of said county, this is to cite all and singular the creditors and next of kin of Jno. H. Ruckman, to be and appear at my office within the time allowed by law, and show cause, if any they can, why permanent Administration should not be granted to David W. Curry on Jno. H. Ruckmanís estate. Witness my hand and official signature, this 6th day of June, 1887. J. A. Howard, Ordinary


There is a much married family in Fayette county, Ga. Five Hamby brothers have severally taken the five Starnes sisters into wedlock. Old man Starnes, being a widower, and seeing all of his daughters incorporated into the Hamby family, determined that he would be equal to the occasion. So he walked over and married the widow Hamby, the mother of the five boys.



Several deaths this week from flux.



Miss Alice Carson, of Alabama, who has been on a visit to her sister, Mrs. G. W. Hendricks, returned to her home last week.


The remains of Mr. and Mrs. Roganís child arrived here from Bristol, Tenn., Sunday, and were interred in our cemetery that afternoon.
