“Affairs of the City.”

Mr. Newt Bradley is all smiles over the arrival of a new girl baby at his home last week.


Mrs. F. R. Calhoun is in Acworth, where the advent of a new grandson invokes conspicuous attentions.


Mr. Troup Callahan, of Calhoun, spent several days at the home of his brother, Mr. John Callahan, the past week. He attended the funeral of Miss Minnie Callahan.


The friends in this community of Mrs. E. W. Sanders will regret to learn of her death, which occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M. R. Slaughter, at Palestine, Tex., a few days ago, after an illness of only seven days. Mrs. Sanders was a sister of the late Mr. A. M. Franklin and was 79 years of age.


The Courant American enjoyed a pleasant call Monday from Mr. G. W. Shaw, whose home is at Troup, Texas. Mr. Shaw left this county nearly thirty years ago for the Lone Star state, and having prospered there, speaks enthusiastically of his home and locality. Nevertheless, he takes still a lively interest in old Georgia, which he has paid an annual visit for the last four years, and notes the progress and changes of the state. He says that at his old home, Adairsville, there are only four of the older citizens of the town remaining, who were there when he left. These are Messrs. J. M. Veach, John W. Gray, Thomas Johnson and Pres. Dyer.
