Six months anIi ineteen dtis
of the year 1908 are gone an4
we are just that piuch nearer
the grave. How many are bet
ter and how many are worse
than they were at the first ofI
the year? No one can answer
that question except God. It
loes look like some of the people
of Cateechee ought to be better,
for they have- been preached to
.and ie-preaehed to for some
thing over seven weeks.
This divine promulgator has
his abode under a few stakes,
some hemp roping and cloth
enough to cover the same.
Whether this little canvas is
styled a church or not we have
never been able to understand.
The owner of it teaches there is
only one church and that is the
Church of Triumph. All the
rest, he says, are bastards. He
helps then to get salvation,
baptizes them, turns them loose
and leaves it with them. We
don't suppose the devil can ever
persuade them to step aside any
more. if they ever do get off
of the track we don't know who
will help them back, for the
"hoisting jack" is done gone.
How important it is for parents
to educate their children, for
how many heretical promulga
tors of the gospel are abroad in
the land; and unless they can
read and study the word of God
for themselves how will they
ever know who i3 right? The
writers' advice is to read and
pray for yourself-don't depend
too much on a preacher, he is
only flesh and blood as you are.
We will venture the assertion
that there are as fine crops in
about two miles square around
Cateechee as there are in the
county. The Lord has smiled
on the farmers in this commun
ity, (no hall storms or disasters
of any kind so far) and we
should go down on our knees
and thank Him. But how many
-of us go on. from day to day like
a hog-eating mass, never look
ing up from -where it comes
from. The writer feels he is
unworthy of any of the bless
ings he is the recipient .of and
we should be more humble.
It was our pleasure to visit
and dine at the residence of Mr.
I. N. Coo'k, of Norris, one day
last week. -Mr. Cook ownms a
nice little farm of forty acres
near the No'rris depot. He lives
at home and If any one should
-dine with him, they wvill find
that he and family board at thE
same place. He makes every
thing to live on at home that he
needs and mother earth, wil
produce. Ho raises his ~owr
meat, has plenty of milk ani
buttor and chickens till yot
can't walk. The writer had
drum sticks enough lying around
his plate when lie got througly
eating to have made fiddle bowa
for several parties. Mr. Cook
has as fine an average crop ol
cotton as we ever saw. It Is nc
pet patch or spot, but a good
* average crop. He has peaches
*a plenty. When his melons get
* ripe we .haye another invitation
and sonr-mouth is now watering.
Mr. 0. D. Dickson, who lives~
n.L, G. Philliptyplace,. adjoin-.
nlg ler. Cpok, also has a ,fine
cagp of cotiton. ,It, like Mr.
ook's Is a good average crop of

Mrs. Elizabeth Garrett,.moth
er of Mr. J. C. Garrett, Is not
expected to live. She is eightyi
some-odd years old and a mighty
good old lady,
Mr. W. P. Garrett and wife
passed through this place this
morning on their way to Cen
tral. They were accompanied
by Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Garrett,
of Six Mile. Mr. W. P. has
bought a small farm near Cen
tral and erected as nice a house
on it as you ever see in a rural
district. Mr. W. P. is an organ
ist from your heart, and the
writer will quit eating chicken
and dumplins any time to listen
to him play.
The writer is under obligation
to Mr. James Trainum of Six
Mile for a nice basket of peaches.
Jim and the writer are old
school mates, hence the peaches.
Mr. R. R. Roark, candidate
for sheriff, was in town a few
days ago. Bob is a mighty good
fellow and his opponents had.
We hope the candidates will
arrange to give the voters of
Cateechee a chance to hearltheir
guns some Saturday evening.
Remember, Cateechee p o 1 s
something'like a hundred votes,
and that many will help to elect
or defeat somebody.
The marriage business seems
to be on a stand-still. Don't
know whether it is on account
of the price of corn, two can't
get in the same ,notion at the
same time, or what. J. A.
Brown, N. P., says he is. still
sitting at the window, waiting,
looking and longing for a patient.
The law on debt is not as ex
acting as it shouild be and at an
early date we wish to touch
upon that subject through the
columns of this paper, provided
the good editor will allow us
space. We think it would be of
more- interest if the correspond
ents would write on such things
anyway. Take up, say, the
debt law, the liquor law, and
different laws anti discuss the
good and evil of them. What
do other correspondents think
By invitati n, the. Cateechee
ball team went over Saturday
