Mr Coe Fields, of Atlanta, died suddenly at his home in Atlanta
last Sunday. For many years Mr. Fields lived in the lower part of this county. His remains were brought to Antioch and entered at the cemetery at that place last Monday evening.
Next Friday afternoon , May 7, will be memorial Day at Hopewell near  Tyrone. An interesting program has been prepared and a growing interest is being manifested in the exercise at this place each year. There are many Confederate soldiers buried in the Hopewell Cemetery and a large crowd is expected to attend.
I am now prepared to do repair work on bicycles and have repair materials for sale. Also on request for new wheels, come and see me.
