the first time in his life of being

a colored school, and could you
have been there, Mr. Editor, you'd
agree in saying it was arare treat,

proceedings beggar description

The Augusta Evening News.
The first afternoon paper in
Georgia to score a success was the
Augusta News. G?n?ral William
H. Moore, in whom Atlanta still
feels a warm interest, left this city
when the Sun, of which he was
city editor, suspended, and entered
the field of Augusta journalism. .
He did excellent work on the
old Atlanta Herald and the
Constitutionalist for several years,
and. in 1877 founded the News. It
was considered a rash experiment
by Borne of Mr. Moore's best
friends, but the public took kindly
.to the News from the start, and it
was soon regarded as one. of Au
gusta's most valuable institutions.
It has now reached its fifteenth
year, and is stronger and more
popular than ever. The News
ias succeeded because it has been,
newey, clean und good natured.
