We have been informed that persimmon

stated that at the North this wood
brings very fancy prices, and we advise
those who have this kind of timber
to investigate and find out what it

are now selling it for.
ENTERED BY THIEVHSS.
Oa Monday night Mr. McBride
Smith's shop was entered by thieves
and a half side of leather and some
tools belonging to Charlie Coins W6ie
taken. The thieves made a second
trip to Mr. Smith's shop on Wednesday
night and took the brace that was
found near Mr. Cathcart's atore on
Thursday morning, thus proving that
the burglars who entered the shop
were the same ones who attempted to
enter Mr. Cathcart's store.

by Misses Dwight and Allston,
pr-oved-one 'of' the most delightful
"social functions of the new year, me
informality of a formal tea was most attractive
to the many friends who responded
to their invitations, and we
are sure pleasant memories will long
linger in the minds of those present.]

DEATH OF MR. W. B. THOMPSON.
Gn Saturday, January 21st. Mr.
W.B.Thompson died at his home at
Biackstock of paralysis. He suffered
| the first stroke in Match, 1591, and
since that time has had several and has
been confined to his home for months,
until death relieved him of his snffer
ingMr.
Thompson was an old Confederate
soldier and foaght nnder Genera!
Wheeler. The funeral services were
held ou Sunday at the Blackstock
Presbyterion Church, Rev. Mr. Kirkpatrlck
officiating, and the body was
ioterred in the graveyard of Catholic
Presbyterian Church.
IT SHOULD BE STOPPED.
The siioirshot fiend is a^ain at work.
We notice that two panes of glass in
the rose-window in the front of the
I Episcopal Church have been broken
and one of the side windows has also
been brokeo, It is very evident that
these windows were broken by a
slingshot, and while we believe that
it was done through thoughtlessness
and not maliciously, stili such reckless
shooting should be stopped before
other property in town is injured.
Complaint3 are often heard of the
reckless shooting of slingshots and
I air gun? by boys around town, and
| we hope that in the future they will
be more careful in the use of them.
We believe that if their attention is
called to it they will have more regard
for other peoples property and we
irusr. inai a en^gesuon win na suificient.
ATTEMPTED BURGLARY.
About one o'clock on Wednesday
night John Russell heard a noise and
thought that some one had entered
his store andsot npto investigate, and
he and his wife looked all about but
saw no one. John then raise-d the
| window and looked around bat saw
no one. He knew nothing firther
uutil next morning. It was clisccrered
on Thursday morning that som j one
had taken an aagur and bored a hole
in the back door of Mr. A. B. Cath
