The board of Super
intendents of New York's
schools has taken "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" from the school
libraries. It has required 40
years for them to find out

Happenings of Interest from Our
Tho Methodist Missionary Dis
trict conference of this place will
long be remembered as a very
pleasant reunion of the various
churches. All churches were rep
resented by most charming wom
. on. Many visitors attended the
meetings. *Oui own Mrs. Ivey in
a most excellent way delivered the
address of welcome. Mrs.Humbert,
a tall, stately youthful looking wo
man with snowy hair, conducted
the meetings in a forcible manner.
Miss Sanders, just three weeks
from China, charmed every one by
hereusy, graceful demeanor. Mrs.
Ed Strother and Miss Lizzie Bates,
of Batesburg, are too well known,
and beloved to need any assur
ance of the warm welcome that
awaits them at all times at this
"place. All visitors received a cor
rdial welcome? arjL^ the acception'
given them at the residence of Mr.
D. T. Ouzts was a success in ev
ery respect. The mingling together
of missionary women from all
churches was enjoyed to the ut
most. The three ministers and jur
worthy host seemed a little bit
lost in such a bevy of fair women.
Dainty refreshments were served
by lovely girls, and all seemed
loath to leave even after the limit
There will be a District confer
ence of the W. C. T. U. at this
place in the near future, and we
hope the same enthusiasm may
prevail, as temperance work is

Dear ADVERTISER : News is
very abundant this week, but I
fear that I am too sleepy just now
to jot it down as I would like to.
Very little planting has been
done here as yet, being delayed
by the cold, but the weather is
much warmer now, so farmers will
be quite busy this week.
Peaches are now safe from the
cold. There will be more than
.was at first expected-about three
fourths of a crop. %
Our telegraph operator, Mr. J.T.
Dowling, left last week to accept
