The Breaking Of the Dead Line
Union of the Dutch and the Irish.
We take pleasure in presenting to
or readers the above picture of Mrs.
Nancy Dominick, who now lives with
her daughter, Mrs. J. Cal Cook in the
Stoney Batter section of the county.
In that community is the famous dead
line that was the source of no end of
trouble and neighborlhlood difficulties
seventy-five years ago. On the south
side of this line lived -the Dutch and
bn the north side the Irish, and it was
considered a high crime and misde

RED MEN AT WHITMIRE.
Large Attendance-Excellent Sermon i
By Rev. J. H. Graves. i
Rev. J. 1. Graves preached a S
mon to the Red Men at Whitmire 4n 1
Sunday. He was, accompanied ir-n t
Newberry by Mr. 0. Klettner, Mr. V.
H. H,ardeman and Mr. W. H. Harris. I
There was a large and appreciative I
audience present and the sermon was I
forceful and eloquent and every ont I
present felt full repaid.
There were Red Men present from
Union and Newberry and together
with the local tribe there were some
sixty to seventy-five in line.
The following .i.s but -a poor out
line of the sermon by Mr. Graves.
"Strive to enter in at the strait
gate." These were the words spoken
by the Son of God to those who were
desirous of ithrowing around life many
doubts and difficulties. The Red Man
was not far from the truthi when'he rec
ognized tihat he who hunted hones*cly
and well in this life enjoyed to the
fullest what God or the Great Spirit
had in store for him in the Happy
Hunting Grounds beyond.
Christ in his complete revelar.ion
gives us somewhat -the same ide.a.
Life is a struggle for mastery or -to
be mastered. Continually striving
God so wills it.
The Master tells us to strive for it
is a slrait gate. He who would be
truly God's child must take several
steps in 1-ife to attain to God's aim
in his creation. Of these steps
*we will only speak of thbse which
may be des.ignated as the steps of
freedom, friendship and chariEy.
If man would follow God in .th.
struggles of life he 'must be free.
Free under civil government.
,Free from .sins outward and inward.
Nothing save only the grace of God t
shed abroad through Jesus Ohrist can
bestow h:is blessings.
Wihen man finds himself free he
must take another step. This one will
be called the step 'of friendship. I
Friends;hip 'means Tmore than we un
dersand when we speak of man as,.a
riend .today, When two -hearts beat
'with one aim then imay we lay cl'aim
to true friendsihip. Like Damnon and
Pyt!hias, Paul and Luke. When the 1
Apostle uttered, "Luke is with .me."
This leads us to the las 'step of
which th'fe apostle Paul say-s: "We
may possess Faith to remove moun
ains; sacrifice our bodies to be
burned at the strake for truth's sake.
Give all our goods to feed the poor,
who are unable to follow the 'hunt, yet
if we do it not for love's sake :it is all
When we attain to the 'height of
*his step God will permit us to pass
in to the happy hunting ground above
here all will be peace and joy around
the council bran'd which burneth for- ~
ever in his eternal wigwam.1

The celebration of Yom Kippur, the
Day of Atonement, was gener'ally o-b
served by our Hebrew citizens. The C
observance lasts from sundown Satur
day until sundown Monday. Accord
ig to tihie Hebrew calendar; Yom
Kippur falls on .the tenth of the
seventh month, called Tishri. Yomt
Kippur being the holiest day of the I
Jewish year all Hebrews are expected
to fast and to ab'tain from labor andc
from their general social dutsies. The
dominant idea in the ce1ebra.tion is
God's exaltation and man's biumili'ty.
