There is happiness in the home of
C. C. Coyle, executive secretary of th
State Republican Central Committee,
and has been for a week or more.
Mr. Coyle lives at Marietta and ho
hastens home every night from his
office in the Candler building to enjoy
his happiness. It's a new girl and
the finest little tot to quote Mr.
Ccyle himself that ever looked into
the eyes of fond parents.
Of course, this mean another voter
in Georgia for the G. O. P. Regard
less of party affiliations, the genial
executive secretary is receiving the
congratulations of many people on
the addition to hia household.
It will be recalled that Mr. Coyle
was for many years the traveling rep
resentative of an Atlantic newspaper,
and he has perhaps the largest per
sonal acquaintanceship of any man
who ever hit the road In behalf of a
newspaper. In his ork at tbe state
republican headquarter he has re
newed acquaintances in all parts of
the State and there are many voter
w ho cast a ballot at general elections
not only for the G. O. P. but because
they like Coyle. Mr. Coyle is now
the right hand man of Louie Craw
ford, vice chairman of the state com
mittee at headquarters, who is on
duty all the time, especially during
the absence of Chairman Philips.

Mr. Coyle will be remembered as
just "Cull" to his many friends in

the failure to secure universal eco

states have survived at all I proof of
tbe virility of their Institutions.
