(or willfully practicing mired communion
and obstinately avowing his adherence
to tho same.
Be it further known that tho account
of this as given some time since by tho
HtiNtnnvillii of tho Advo
cate was In tho main an utter misrepresentation
of It. Mr. Cone did uot com.
wit the olTonso "thoughtlessly," neither
"ruthlessly" excluded. As to ..

on nf tlin best informed otlicers of the
church, wo had not known so much of
this till ho himself constantly ntllrmed
it during the above action.
Now the facts In brief relative to tho
exclusion of Deacon Cone are these
When he was ordained to the otllco of
deacon littlo over two years ago, hu
passed a satisfactory examination in
Baptist doctrine and solemnly avowed
his adherence to "restricted communion."
On tho 2d Sunday in last Octo
her our pastor, as Is invariably his cua
torn, stated concisaly our doctrlnu on
the lord's Supjer and by a restricted Invitation
invited tho communicants to occupy
certain designated front seats. Bro.
trcen, a Presbyterian, chanced to be
present, but consistently did not come
forward. Deacon Cono pompously went
to Bro. Green ami handed him the era
Both pastor and deacons labored tenderly
and earnestly with tho offender
for two months, hoping to convince him
of his error and have him promise uot
to repeat it. Their entreaties proved In
vain. The more they entreated'the more
stubborn ho became. All private efforts
having failed, the church preferred a
charge against him and cited him to appear
to answer it at thuJan. meeting. He
came, but it teemed not to answer tho
cbnrge, but to charge tho church. He
wintKil to rulo tho moderator from tho
chair, Kurcd a deluge of contempt upon
the heads of both the pastor and the
church, declared himself right and tho
pastor wrong, said ho was better Informed
and know more Baptist doctrine than
all the rest of tho church, denied ever
having avowed his adherence to
communion" and lot them know
that the leading members of both the
MethodUt church at Moreland and the
Baptist church at Danville bail already
assured him that they would receive
him as soon as he was excluded from
We conscientiously believe that wo
have done what was our duty in this
matter and hope that Uro. Cono may bo
of f.omo use to our .Methodist brethren.

but not necessarily a dangerous
wound. As far as can be learned the
trouble aro.se in this way Milford Barbour
kicked a littlo dog belougiug to Goings,
Bogy told Goings about tho kicking,
Goiuga got after Barbour for what
he had done and after a few angry words
Barbour left, saying hu would bu back
when ho had armed himself. Goings
watched from his door in the direction

Tho report that Geoigo Bouta tried
to "make a body" of himself by jumping
into Hanging Fork just under Dawson's
mill dam Wednesday is not admitted to
bo strictly true by that gentleman. Geo.
did goto the Fork llshlng that day and
while standing under the dam wondering
why thoy didn't bite, he saw a log
some distance from tho shore and thinking
there might be a uowlight behind it,
got a fence rail and tried to walk over it
to a point so he could tish all around the
log. Hu had gotten about two. thirds of
the longth of the rail, when tho pesky
thing turned and George, minnow bucket
and pole went, it seemed to him, ten
thousand fathoms down, his hat remaining
on tho surface. His companions were
about to offer a haudsome reward for
the recovery of the body, when George
rose to the surface and struck out for tho
shore, which he reached in due time.
The pole and hat were recovered, but
the minnow bucket uud all the minnows
got away, in view of these facts it will
be seen that the newsmonger who circulated
the report that George dived for
the shining shore is a person unworthy

highest terms of his services. Mr. Levi
Elder has taken his place as clerk.
It is thought that the man who killed
Chas. Butcher's mule will soon be
identified, and wo hope the right
one will bo severely dealt with, as
a fiend who would murder a poor
dumb brute simply because he happened
to dislike Its owner, wouldn't
hesitate to do any kind of a crime if an
opportunity was offered.

continually going about administering
to those in distress, taxing her strength
to make others happy, it is not to be
wondered at. Sho never lets an opportunity

and brightens every home bIio enters.

the "Beloved Disciple," she always says
