P few lines about mi trip to Utopy last
It wuz threw the kindness of Mr.
John Henry Chappell (accent on the
last fiillible is the latest stile) that
I had sich a grand trete. Him an'
his purty an' amiblc darter, Miss
Annie May, come atter me soon that
b morn in', an' I hasn't never in joyed
a drive better.
H? It aint ever day that I git to ride
in a fine two horse kerridge, an' git
ice erenie at ever stoppin', place, but
allers tri an' act like it wern't 110
111 co m mon proceed in
"We wuz 011 the Utopy grounds
H^Hmrtv erly, an' had the chance to look
^^Hround some before the place got
H^Hivcrcd up in people an' horses. I
jHHcvcr seen a purtier pmce fur a bobBHHRyeue
HI It wuz a grate shady grove, an' if
B^^nhcre wuz any chigars, red bugs, or
Hh^Hmiv kind of ticks besides pollv ticks,
|BH hey didn t truble Becky Ann Jones,
HHbut hunted better rations.
The first won I met wuz Mr.

L down at Mt. Bethel. The Blair brothB|
ers, two fine lookin' ole ginllemcn
B with inagniffercent whiskers, cookB
ed the dinner, or superintended it,
B an' it wuz a grand success. I never'
seen as much stuft cooked at wonce
I in awl mi born daze. "When I went
n home an told Jeetns thay had nine
I big wash pots full of hash, ricc,
pointers an' eggs, lie said, "Now
Becky Ann, don't stretch yore blanket
loo fur, or yew mite tare a hole in
Mr. Hub Evans arrove purty erly,
an Mr. ( happell interduccd him an'
made him 'pologize fur not noticin'
me at Mt. Bethel. I tell yew what,
SI Mr. Chappell aint goin' to be ignored
hisself, ner he ain't a goin' to allow
his frends to be. I beleve Mr.
Lvans treted me nice because lie
wanted to, though, an' not cawse he
had to. I wore a rose bud home that
lie give me, an' I told Jeems where
I got it, but I didn't tell him about
the compclments Mr. Evans paid
me. An' he sot me up to awl the ieo
erenie I cud etc?an' so did Mr.
Chappell; an' he wanted to pay fur
mi dinner, but Mr. Chappell beat him
a gel I in' (hare.
I met Mr. Herbert, the gentleman
livin' in the grove, an' who furnished
the ice cremc. An' I met Mrs.
J Ora Davenport, a great lover an'
teacher of music, an' a clever frendl.v
lady named Longshore.
The speeches wuz fine an' much
in joyed. II aint 110 use fur me to
tell about them speeches, cawse niitev
ni everbody iii the county, except
Jeems, wuz I hare, and heard 'em.
An', besides, I seen a feller a set tin'
(hare riIi 11 'cm down, so I ain't yoing
lo set up a compertition again
Mr. Jack Smith 'lowed down I hare
thai I d never see him smoke anuther
scgarelle. lie puffed awl day
011 a cupple of. segars some syinpathizin'
sole had give him, but I met
him square 011 I he streets of Newberry
vislidy evenin', deeply interested
in (lie fasoinalin* nianifacture
oJ: a nasty little ole segarette. Soon
? as he seen me he closed his fist 011 it,
an' (ride lo look inercenl as a lamb,
but I let him no' I seen it; but come
to find out, he wuz makin' if fur
I met Mr. A brains, a red-headed
' man, that sed if any body wuz to so
much as hint lo his wife thai he wuz
anything but handsome, she'd frail
M 'em rile then an' I hare with grale
plezure! T I ell yew that, tho, she's
purty enufT fur 'em both.
Sheriff Buford wuz down thare,
but he didn't make 110 speech. 'Pears
to me lie's purtv much up in yeres to
lie tryin' to pass 011 his good looks.
I seen the handsome pink shirtod
feller down there an' lie told me he
| node a feller that, perscribcd fur Herald
and News jest to git mi artickles
an' fur 110 other resin!
An' I also seen tho fine lookin'
feller that treted 111c to lemernadc
down at Ml. Bethel; he didn't trete
me at Utopy, tho, fur I had already
tuck on as much as I could stand.
Well, I've got a hole lot I'd like
to rite about, but the bestivule will
soon b? here an' I've got to hurry.
1 hate orful bad to miss the &fate
campane in Newberry the 5th, an' I
hope some body will throw u big
bunch of roses at our future governor,
Mr. Cole. L. Bloase, fur me. I
wood do it fur my self if I wuz there.
Yes, I shore hate to miss it, but I
don't no when I wood ever git sich
anuther chance to visit the old home
a'n loved wons, so I'm a graspin' at
the present opportunity.
llopin' that ever body will have
as nice a time .as I'm a expectin' to,
durin' these two weeks vacation fur
West End, I am, yores trewly,
Becky Ann Jones.

At a meeting of the board of di-'
rectors of this bank last night it j
was decided that owing to the con- :
tinuous decline in our do- i
posits and (lie general de-1
pression in the stock owned by this 1
bank that it was best to suspend further
business pending arrangements
for voluntarily liquidating its affairs
for I ho protection of all parties concerned.
Depositors are fully protected.
The State bank examiner has been
notified and requested to apply at
once to a circuit judge for the appointment
of liquidating officers according
B. F. Arthur, President.
The People's Bank was organized
in February, 1904, with a capital
stock of $60,000, and up to the time
of the Duncan failure was doing quite
a good business. It was somewhat
handicapped by that failure, however,
as Mr. Duncan was vice president
of the bank and had considerable
interest in it. Last fall when the
panic began in New York it naturally
affected this institution as it did
