We are highly gratified to learn tfiat

is a candidate for the position of principal
of Mt. Zion, at the meeting of

Mr. Stewart is one of the best educated
men in the State. A student of
the University of Virginia and a graduate
of Columbia College of New
York. An educator at ane time and a

White Oak, It was brief, pointed and

to both pupils and patrons of the

Mr. Editor: We notice in last week's
paper a piece headed, <*Mitford Wants
Telephones." Well,,Buck Lick does
too. So I venture to write along tbis
i:<n,a s>sir \Tifforo to let us unite
I 1U.V -our
funds and have a line linked on to
Messrs. Wylie's and Johnston's, if
they don't- object.
A very good route would be by
Mr. Clark "Williugham's and Prof.
W. S. Durham's on the Winusboro
, and Peay's Ferry Road; then to the
Flint Hill postoltice ar;d 0:1 to Mr.
P. C. Mellichampe'a store and to Mitj
ford. This would be less direct for
j Mitferd, but it would be less expensive
tor it and Duck Lick to put tbeir
! funds together and build Ihis longer
j line .ban to build two short ones indeI
nendent of each other.
We bave been thinking of having a
line from here for some time, and now
' if we will unite and then go to work
right and quit thinking and talking
and writing about it, there is no reason
why we can't have this line at an
! early date.
i There are some men here thai will
' contribute a go^d deal to the purpose
j and every man wil! help. I should be

CHILDREN'S DAY AT BETHESDA,
Mr EdiioT: Still another "Children's
Day," at Betbesda Methodist Church,
has come and gone, bnt there still
rpmains in onr minds the bright.
happy, smiling faces of (hose present.
All were gathered together in "His
name" and it seems to us that these
meetings are typical of the great beyond,
where we shall all find undisturbed
rest in that '-blest harbor"
where we shall '-'never say good-bye."
While the exercises were conducted
by the pastor. Miss Ethel Jackson is
the. efficu-iu superintendent of the
Sunday school. This is something
thing nuusual, but when we remember
that our lLen Lord's first sweet message
to his disciples was sent by a
woman, we can all see in this, the
continuation of the Lord's messages
to Iiis people.
The decorations, which were supsrintended
by Misses Sue Gladden and
j Ethel Jackson, were lovely aud we
think very appropriate, for we can see}
the hand of God in each leaf and j
1 flower as well as in the mighty solar

After the diuncr hoar we were addressed
by Rev. J. G. Hall npon the
all-absorbing topic of the day?
"Cuba." He spoke of the island as
"beautiful Cuba" add of the erroneous
idea of many that it is a somewhat
barren island. Mr. Hall has visited it
three times and it was especially interesting
him, as he could tell of the
things wbicL he had seen and heard
himself. The Cubans, he says, have
almost no religion, but are very mach
much opposed to the priest and would
always rather "boss" than work. In
the meanest slave or blackest African
howaver, are found hidden beauties of
cbaracter; so in these Cubans Mr. Hall
found some noble traits. Thev are a
very hospitable people, and give
strangers, especially Americans, a eordial
welcome into their homes. Many
other interesting thic.g3 were told to
us of which we cannot speak, but the
one thing which was impressed upon
us was oar duty toward these people.
There have been large sums of money
spent, and parents have willingly seen
their sons leave to give Cuba liberty.
Now, when she is freed! it is our duty to
go there and teach these darkened by
mental and spiritual clouds of ignorance,
the way, the truth and the lfgbt.
The pastor, llev. A. A. Yougue,
entertained the audience for the rest
of the afternoon by telling thein aoout
the ant, spider, grasshopper and the
coney. Mr. Yongue pointed oct to
us some lessons that we could get from
each of these little creatures' lives,
which were reflections of the "King
in JUis tJeauiy."
The music of the day by the choir
was beautiful. The organist, Miss
Evelyn Hall, deserves much credit for
the way jn which it was gotten up, for
of this we are sure, that music will
never cease to soothe the heart of man
on earth, and is the grandest conception
that we have of heaven.

There is more Catarrh in this section
0/ the country than all other diseases
p'ut together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pronounced
it a local disease, and prescribed
local remedies,- and by con
stantly failing to care with local treatment,
pronounced it incnrable. Science
has proven catarrh to be a constitutional
disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure, mamfactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
oniv constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally in doses from 10
drops to a teaspoonfol. It acts directly
; on the blood and mncous surfaces of
the system. They offer one hundred
dollars for auy case it fails to cure.
