Owing to so much rain and in h
the absence of the farmers from H
their crops "General Green" has th
thoroughly organized his forces, CI
and the initiation will take
place just as soon as the ground ch
gets dry enough, when every n
man who has a crop will have at

proper cultivation there is time cc
for it to mature yet. pi
The harvest is on and from all (1
appearances it will not be long t
until some can eat home-raised
bread. Wouldn't this be a glor
ious world if every person would tal
raise what they eat and wear at mi
home, join the church, be bap- In
tized and do unto others as they O
would wish to be done by? If e
such was the case there would Dr
be no need of a lien law, home

thing of the kind. Everybody
would be happy. 1 B4
The writer was talking a few pB
days ago with a certain travel- Br
ling man who lived in a state E
where divorces are given. Of C
course he was in sympathy with I
the law, for, after talking
awhile with him, we soon
found out that he was living
with his second wife under the ar
permission of a divorce. His 'r
view of the matter was that if tai
a couple married and then they an
could not agree and gef along U
conenillytogether it was best
to seperate and marry again and y
try to get a wife you could live
Our veiw of the matter is for
every man or woman who con- sh
templates marrying to be very fo:
discreet, to thoroughly consider wl
the matter, not be too hasty, and A
if either one finds the least thing ac
he or she don't like, or they don't
agree before marrying, to never
marry that person; if you do, it w
is more than likely you will be et<
sorry of the step. In the mean- hE
time ouradvice is, if you trade tr

The Cateechee ball team play- ~
ed the Pickens team on the lat
ter's diamond last Saturday.
The game stood 21 to 13 in favor
of the visiting team. On ac- a
count of sickness Cateechee was nl(
deprived of two of her best play
ers, which accounts for Pickens
not being beaten any worse. ii'
As before stated in this paper niE
the Cateechee team very seldom ca
practices any, except that which '
they get while playing with oth
er teams, but the bunch that
gets on the diamond, has a lot 1y
to do to beat themi. They are in
