EIGHTEEN MILITARY
COMMANDS INVITED
To Participate In Exercises Here On
Military Day.
HOPED ALL THESE WILL ACCEPT
Invitations Extended Many Promi
nent Georgians Already Accepted-
Railroads Give Reduced Rates All
Points to Big Event.
Eighteen companies of the Second
and Fourth Georgia Regiments have
been invited to come to Americus and
take part in the imposing exercises of
“Military Day,’’and Americus will see
more of showy uniforms and brass but
tons than she has since the Federal
troops were here.
For the carnival committee hopes
that every company will accept.
The carnival committee was notified
yesterday that the railroads centering
here would do their full part towards
making the fair a success bv allowing
the usual rates on such occasions.
A rate of one fare for the round trip
will be allowed from all points for vis
itors generally’, while a rate of one cent
per mile is accorded military compan
ies and brass bands in uniforms. This
very iow rate is highly satisfactory to
the committee, and insures a large
crowd.
Letters were received yesterday from
a dozen or more distinguished Geor
gians who were invited to attend the
carnival, several of whom announced
their intention of coming. Many
prominent people will be here.
With such a low railroad rate and ex
csllent list* of attractions Americus
should have 20,000 visitors within her
gates next week.
Story of a Slave.
To b bound hind and foot for years,

form of slavery, ueorge D. Williams,

alone After using two bottles of Elec
tric Bitters, she is wonderfully improv
ed and able to do her own work.” This
supreme remedy for female diseases
quickly cures nervousness, sleepless
ness, melancholy, headache, backache,
fainting and dizzy spells. This mira

were spent here. He had known

built here in 1828, and was an author

One son, R. M. Wheeler, and one
daughter, Mrs. L. P. Dorman, survive
him. The funeral services were held
Tuesday afternoon from the residence
of Mr. A. P. Lingo, conducted by Rev.

GEORGE W, COUNCIL
DIED ON MONDAY.
An Honored Citizen of Sumter Has
Passed Away.
WELL KNOWN IN THIS SECTION
For Honesty, Integrity and General
Worth as a Citizen- Self Made Man
in Every Respect—Funeral From
Frst Methodist This A. M.
Americus and Sumter county sus
tained a great loss in the death of one
of our most honored and esteemed citi
zens, Mr. George W. Council, The
end came at 2 o’clock Monday morning
at his beautiful home near the city,
after an illness of several weeks.
And an entire people deplore the
death of this good man and citizen.
While the end was not unexpected,
owing to his long illness, the announc
ment will cause deepest regret through
out southwestern Georgia, where the
deceased was esteemed among all.
For more than a year Mr. Council
had been in rather feeble health, and
the services of the best specialists
north and south as well as that of phy
sicians here was sought to bring relief.
Two weeks ago a turn for the worse
came and he gradually sank until the
end came with the morning yesterday.
His life’s work is ended at last, and
he rests with his Maker.
Mr. Council was eminently a self
made man, and the success achieved
by him serves well to illustrate to the
youth of the land what can be accom
plished by thrift, energy and business
integrity, all of which he possessed.
His parents came to Sumter county
from North Carolina when he was four
years old, settling on a little farm. Os
modest means, they could give him but
a meager education, but his strong
mind and ability of acquiring knowl
edge by observation well fitted him for
the battle of life which he fought—
and won.
He began his career with a cash capi
tal of 25 cents and died possessed of
great wealth, every dollar of which was
honestly earned.
Twelve years ago Mr. Council estab
lished the Planters Bank of Americus,
of which he was president and largest
stockholder. This, with his very large
planting interests, afforded a compe
tency far beyond his requirements.
Returning from the war, almost pen
niless, as were other Confederate sol
diers, he married Miss Barwick, his
life companion and sweet helpmete.
She with three sons, Messrs. L. G., C
M. and Barlow Council, and two
daughters, Mrs. A. E. Bellingrath and
Miss Annie Council, survive him. His
death is the first in this happy family.
To these and his only brother, Mr.
M. B. Council, much' sympathy is
extended.
The funeral services will be conduct
ed from the First Methodist church at
11 o’clock this morning. The pallbear
ers will ba Messrs. H. R. Johnson, R
J. Perry, E J. Eldridge, W. H. C,
Dudley, John A. Cobb, S. H. Haw
kins, U. B. Harrold, A. J. Hamil, J B.
