ADAIRSVILLE, Ga., Jan. 10.-The social atmosphere here was very much disturbed some days since by the appearance of a “special” in the Atlanta Constitution from Nashville, announcing the sudden disappearance of one Mrs. Crockett from the fireside of her husband and child in that city. This lady was raised pretty much here under the care and painstaking of a devoted mother, who represents one of the oldest aristocratic families of the Palmetto State, and for this reason and the high esteem in which this family is held here, her name is withheld. Miss Nina Crockett is the fifth daughter married, the others are numbered among the refined and cultured citizens of Athens, Atlanta and Savannah, and even they do not regret to know of anything as much as those whom were associated with their sister. Mrs. Nina Crockett had decided stage abilities, and has been very much flattered in her every role assumed as an amateur, besides being possessed of every attraction-a pretty face and perfect figure, with fascinating manners. We trust, however, that the news chronicled of her leaving home to join an opera company may not be colored so high, and that her family here, as well as friends, may enjoy the benefit of a mistake corrected.
