Artesia and Caledonia, the remaining two lodges to assist in the celebra tion, had no delegates present consequently it was decided to postpone until next Friday at 10 o'clock the decision as to the proper place to hold the exer cises. At that time the commit tecs will meet again in this city and final arrangements will be made. Those present yesterday spoke strongly of having tho anniversa 13 celebration in this city, and it is hoped that this will be their tinal decision. Columbus is so situated as to make it possible for all the lodges t attend, while if the meeting is held at some point distant several of the lodges wil be. without representatives. IIS P. O.

The regular monthly meeting of the City Council will bo held on Tuesday night next at tl City Hal!. The meeting will be one of importance for besides the regular routine busiuess of the month, the question of taxing dogs and extending the sidewalk work will, probably, come up for disposition. A strong sentiment has de veloped here in favor of creating a dog tax. The streets are tilled with dogs without owners which prey upon the city, and now that the fences are coming down and yards are needing pro tection, the matter of putting a tax on all dogs in the city is being- seriously considered. The sidewalk matter is one which is engaging attention also. It is desired to take up the work of building walks in the resident portion of the city and Ward No. 1 will, in all probability, come before the Couucil for con sideration on Tuesday night. pected call for more active waj's, and answering this is the an nouncement of The Discards who will be entertained by Miss Marcie Billups on Thursday af ternoon, then into the following week a fuller round is sketched in the entertainments of the Tues day Whist and the Wednesday Whist Clubs, the Ahdeeks claim ing their accustomed morning, the Anonymous Club the after -noou of Saturday the ninth. So though not yet fairly in the midst of fields ripe for the social harvester, we have at least with in clear vision much to look for ward to as the gift of "Young April." An evidenceof the interest that has been awakened in the Y. M. C. A. Convention to be held here from the Oth to the 12th instant, was the enthusiastic gathering at the Gilmer Tuesday afternoon where a large company of ladies assembled to confer as to the character of the entertainment it is their purpose to arrauge in honor of the visiting delegates. Mr. William II. Carter, who was largely instrumental in having Columbus selected as the place of meeting, was present on this occasion, and gave a pleasing little adress in wliich, together with recollections of former suc cessful conventions elsewhere, he told something of the splendid work of the Association, its ob ject, its scope and its future. After discussion, a reception was decided upon as the most satis factory courtesy to be extended, and in its perfect arrangements will doubtless hold a delightful evening. Tho Chairman, Mrs. G. H. Mathis, requests that all who have signified their willing ness to assist in this reception, will meet at the Gilmer to morrow afternoon at 4 o'clock to receive the reports of the various committees and complete tho necessary details. The dull routine of school days was not permitted to assert its usual sway at the I. I. and C. last week; instead Thursday and Friday were devoted to the joys of an extra holiday away from books and college duties. On Thursday the members of the Bach Society, chaperoned by Miss Poindexter and Miss Link, of the music department, en joyed a picnic in the woods, aud returned at twilight, filling the air with the favorite songs of the Glee Club. Friday brought ad ditional opportunity for merry making to many of the girls who were the guests of Miss Power for the day. 1 esterday attjrnoon the Cillaway-Orr Literary Socie- y made the Chapel the scene of "A Trip to Fairyland," which worthily bore its title, and swelled the funds for the Annual .0 be issued in June.

At the con clusion of the programme dainty refreshments were served. Oa account of increasing college du- preparations with this in view. The trustees of that institution, responding to an earnest petition, permitted the children to share in the pranks and wiles of April Fool's day untrammelled by school rules and regulations. Dr. and Mrs. J. R. Tackett left Thursday for Meridian, after a brief stay with Mr. and Mrs. Claude Ayres. Others missed from our register of visitors are Mrs. Bibb, of Montgomery, and Mrs. Carleton, of Athens, Ga., who returned Saturday, after spending some time with Dr. aud Mrs. Cornelius Hardy on the Highlands. An important meeting of the Daughters of the Confederacy is called lor Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock in the Riflemen's Ar mory. The office of the presi dent of the Chapter will be filled and all members are urged to attend. Miss Lucy Harrison, who is in Jacksonville, Fla , the guest of her cousin, Miss Adams, is hav ing a visit marked by many social courtesies, and has been thehon- oree of a number of elegaut af fairs. Mr. Levis,a stockholder in the American Book Co., and a lead ing publisher of the East, was in the city last week. While here he was entertained by President and Mrs. Kincannon.
