James Gordon Bennet's methods are pecu- liar, said an old newspaper man last night in an interview with a Pittsburg Dispatch repor- ter. "He once brought up a man from an out- side town to work the police courts. After a day or two he just aa quickly sent him back to work there on space rates. Tho boy got rather rattled and declared he would get even with Bennett. He did. There was a bad smash-up on the road, and he sent an exclusive account to The Sun. Bennett, of course, wanted to know why The Herald wao beat, and when he learned that it was his whilom policeman who had scooped him he sent for him again, and made him assistant dramatic editor. He said he should not beat him again. ''Shortly afterward, when in Paris, Bennett cabled to this man to come there and act as city editor of the Paris edition. He went, and remained for two weeks, when Bennett, who had gone elsewhere, telegraphed him to go to London and report to Oakoy Hall, who then nad charge of the London edition. Hall told him he had no work for him, and sent a mes- sage to Bennett to that effect. Bennett then at once replied: -Then tell him to go to hades.' he did, for he remained in London."

It is not every city tbat can hoast of as man beantlfal suburban building sites as Atlanta One need only enter the electric car at the junction of Pine and Edgewood avenue am ride out to Inman park to realize how blesse( indeed Atlanta is in this particular, in this direction at least. The East Atlanta Laud Company -was bappy in the conception that inspired them to bend their energies and resources In the effor to give prominence and eclat to this favored spot, and the liberality of their expenditures and the judgment displayed in rendering the enterprise popular and successful are greatly to their credit. Divested of the shanties and olc tenement houses that give Edgewood avenne a ragged and dilapidated aspect in some places, it will be, without exception, the most beautiful thoroughfare in the city, and trav- ersed, as it is by elegant electric cars, the most attractive and popular as well. The dilapidations that here and there encumber this commanding avenue are fast fading from sight, and handsome homes in. pleasing contrast are being con- structed with that rapidity that is in harmoni- ous accord with our prosperous city's steady march along the road of progress. The social aspect tbat nnds expression in a community of select people, remarkable for amiable, refined and cultured characteristics, commends In- mans park specially to those who would rear their families in an atmosphere free from moral as well as miasmic contaminations. It would be hard to find a more desirable community, in this particular, than is now residing there. Thomas W. Latham, Professor Moore, Dr. W. F. Glenn, George E. King, Joel Hurt, Josiah Carter. W.

To guard against any deterioration in the umfornially elegant appearance of Inman park, the company owning the lots upon which building have not already been erected stipulate in their deeds to purchasers that no residence shall be constructed thereon that costs less than nor have thev here- tofore sold a lot there that did not contain thi stipulation.
