Pictures Exclusively Will Be Shown
At The Athens Theatre.
After considerable deliberation Lo
vick and Taylor, managers of the Athens
theatre, which is one of the largest
and most handsomely ' furnished in
the State, have decided to follow the
action of the largest and best theatres
in the State and discontinue their
vaudeville bill during the summer
- Three reels of excellent pictures
will be shown each night, there being a
continuous performance beginning at
8 o'clock and the usual matinee will
be held. A reduction in the price
of admission will be made during the
period in which there will be no vaude
ville. Formerly the price has been
ten and fifteen cents, but in the future
the price of admission will be five and
ten cents, a ticket admitting the holder
to any part of the house.
The theatre is equipped with twenty
oscillating fans and its patrons are
assured of finding a cool place when
they go there.

commander-in-chief of the Grand Army
of the Republic. "It is inconceivable
almost, that between 50,000 and 60,000

General King was connected with
the Pension Bureau a number of years
and says he would not have been sur

by the War Department.
"Much of the credit for the low death CRAVEN

Heart disease caused the woman's
death and when the end came she was
walking along the road near the home
of a farmer who resides not far from the
town. Her body was removed to this
ouse and the authorities were notified.
County Commissioner White telephoned
to C. D. Bradham in this city, chair
man of the Board of Commissioners,
and asked what disposition to make
of the body. The State law says that
only bodies of Confederate veterans
or their widows are to be buried at the
expense of the county while all others
are to be turned over to the State
Medical College. However, although
there were no relatives to claim the
body, the authorities and several citi

the remains at their own expense
