George Freeman, a former Roman now in the tailoring business in Atlanta, came to Rome to dig some more bait and lay in a few more provisions for his fishing camp at Big Beech, nine miles up the Oostanaula River.

Mr. Freeman and several friends are enjoying the pleasures of a houseboat pushed up to that point by one of John Camp’s motorboats. He said they had caught a box full of fish and were enjoying the life.


lawyers had better be on time when their cases are called in Judge Wright’s Superior Court. When the case of H.S. Clemens of Lindale, charged with shooting at J.W. Sexton on the Central train, was called at 8 a.m., Barry Wright, the judge’s nephew, was absent. Fifteen minutes passed, and when Mr. Wright, representi­ng Clemens appeared, Judge Wright fined him five dollars.

The fine was paid without protest or appeal.
