|New Residence of M. N. Drew Complete|
Handsome Brick Home Occupied by Telephone Manager and Family Last Week
One of the best constructed and most modernly arranged and equipped residences to be erected in Quincy in several yeaers is the home just completed on Duval street by M. N. Drew, manager of the Quincy Telephone Company.
The building was completed last week by L. W. Cooper, a local contractor, who has played a large part in building construction in Gadsden county for a number of years.
Built of red brick, of English design, the new home is imposing and beautiful in high degree and is a creditable addition to the many handsome residences of the city.
The interior walls are artistically decorated in different tints in the five down-stairs and four rooms on the second floor, in addition to which are two tiled bath rooms and a closet to each of the bedrooms. The floors are of mountain oak, select grade, are highly polished nad give the interior an air of permanence and durability. The building is covered with copper clad shingles, with copper valleys.
While the home is steam heated, fire places in the living and bedrooms add a touch of cheerfulness so characteristic of southern home design.
The draperies were furnished by a Atlanta house, noted for the quality and beauty of its furnishings and blend in perfect harmony with the surroundings.
The grounds about the house are now being planted and decorated and when completed will form a fine and fitting setting for the elegant residence, which Mr. and Mrs. Drew moved into last week.
To te artistic and aesthetic taste of Mrs. Drew is due in large measure the perfect blending of colors, the taste and simplicity of arrangement that predominate throughout the elegant new home.

Harriett Kells Carman
On January 4, 1929, the Divine Gavel sounded and closed the life work of Sister Carman, a noble Christian and a worthy member of our order. We pause in silence a moment to pay our loving tribute to this dear sister who has crossed the bar.
Quiet and unassuming, she put into practice the lessons taught by our order and endeavored to instill those principles into theminds of others and to make those around her wiser, better and happier. The memories of the association with her will long remain in the hearts of those who knew her kindness of heart, unselfishness and willingness to serve others.
She has whispered her last farewell,
Therefore, be it resolved, that we bow in humble submission to the will of our Heavenly Father.
Second, that we extend to her husband and other loved ones our heartfelt sympathy.
Third, that a copy of these resolutions be spread on our minutes, sent to the family, and printed in the Gadsden County Times.
