Judge G. W. Hendricks has received a report of the standing of his daughter, Miss Alma, who graduated at Wesleyan Female College, last week, which is a most creditable showing.  Her standing in Latin was 98 and in Greek 94, the other studies being equally as good.  Miss Alma entered Wesleyan two years ago in the junior class and graduated with distinction last week.

Miss Alma Hendricks, the bright daughter of Judge and Mrs. G. W. Hendricks, returned home from Wesleyan Female College, at Macon, where she graduated last week with the very highest standing in her different studies.  Miss Alma, in order to enjoy a rest from the fatigue of school, has gone to Rowland Spring, accompanied by two younger sisters, where she will spend two weeks with her grandmother, Mrs. Carson.


Mr. Jack Benedict, of Athens, Ga., and a brother of Rev. Geo. F. Benedict, formerly of Cartersville, went over to Greenville, S. C., three weeks ago on a business trip, and disappeared from that place.  A vigorous search has been made for him but no trace has been found, and his relatives now fear that he was murdered and his body hidden away or thrown into the river.  The search is still going on, though there is little hope of finding him.
