A KEYSER LADY
Carrolton, Ga June 20
At the Carrolton Chatauqa none have so delighted the large audiences for the past few days as Miss Beulah Elwood McNemar. She came here under contract for only two programmes, but her monologue readings so pleased the assemblages that the management of the Chatauqua contracted for two additional appearances.
The largest crowds seen in the auditorium were during her third and fourth programmes.
Miss McNemar is a West Virginian, but is temporarily sojourning at Clarksville, Tenn, from which point she is doing platform work this summer.
She is a brilliant young Southern woman, who is rapidly making a national reputation as a reader. During a tour through several of the Western States last year her work attracted the most favorable comment from any critical audiences.
Last Tues night some party, or
parties, broke into A P Brown & Bro's Store on Armstrong St. They

ice cream freezer. Mr A P Brown did not leave the place of business
until after 11 o'clock that night.
The thief took about $7.00 in cash, left in the store for change, about $40 worth of pipes were missed and cigars, pocket-books and other articles that would run the sum total to $75 or $100.
