The Mysterious Advertisement. t
We call the public's a'ttention to f
the ad appearing in to-day 's paper- y
it sounds very much like the funny k~
little papers or eirculars that have il
been scattered broakdeast over the city r
and county, these myste4'ious~ eircu- b
tars dropping from the clouds (as it r
seems) have ereated much talk, and d
some of the people seemed to be d
greatly worried over the mDysterious S
aprearance and wording thereon. o
On every circular there appears an C
arra, design on which are the words, 1
"Follows the arrows,'' etc. The a
newspaper ad does not clear up the
matter at all, and as to what it means
we aire in the dark. The funny fel
low who brought the ad singrly said,
"Tell your readers to watch your pa- I
per Friday. somethings going to hap
pen. and to be ready.'' a
We along with the populace of the V
county anxiously await the clearing

L. Rainy Sunday at Central Church.
(Rev. J. W. Wolling, D. D.,)
Nearly everybody is influenced in'
heir coming and going by a rainy
ay. This on any day of the week,
>ut when a rainy Sunday comes it is
:o comfortable to rest after a week
if toil tihat few are dispo:sed to turn
>ut in the rain even to go to the
iouse of God. Breakfast is late and
o good .elothes must not be exposed
o the rain and mud, and a quiet
ime is had at home. However, some
tways .come to the sanctuary, stormy
hough the day may .be, and are
-eady to take part in the worship di
'ected to~ tfhe God of all grace. And
ueh was the case at Central Chureh
~n last Sunday. A lawyer from Pe
ersburg, Va., a traveling man from
ttlanta and a small group of stu
tents and of our members met and
re entered upon --ur services. Not a
ady was present.
Our commercial traveler took his
>lace at the piano and we sang and
hen after the usual prayer and read
ng of Scriptures I preached -the reg
tar sermon prepared for the great
ongregation. It had reached 12:13
nd the rain had ceased when our
ervices closed, and still we remained
o talk ''of those things'' quite
while and went away to think of the
-iissitudes of this life and of the
'sure support' in Him who revealed
he divine in t'he human.
A little more zeal for the public
vorship and for the house of God
~ould bring its reward.

MR. CHAPPELL'S INSURANCE.
Suggestion by the Messrs. Hender
son of Manner for Farmers'
Mutual to Pay.
FAitor Herald and News:
We have seen whnt Mr. Krell has
to say in regard to Mr. John Henry
Chappell's loss by fire recently; and
heartily approve of his sentiments.
Being members of The Farmers'
Mutual 'Fire Insurance Company, we
beg leave to say a few words and
offer a suggestion through the col
umns of your valuable paper.
Inasmuch as Mr. Chappell, has
been a member of the company in
good standing and paying his dues
promptly for a number of years and
having never noticed the clause in
his policy, that now deprives him of
the, protection that he thought he
had all the -time, we, as membters of
the companiy, do not think that h'
should lose his insurance. And since
under the constitution and by-laws of
the company he cannot. collect it, we
want to propose to our secretary, Mr.
L. IL Epting, to send each member of
the company a statement of .the dues
that he or she would have been called
upon .to pay in case there had been
ne "clause'' to make the polidy void
and sta-te the nature of the case to
each one, and say that the paying of
the assessment must be entirely vol.
untary. And we feel sure that -there
will be enough paid in to very nearly
i-f 'not quite, pay his claim.
Mr. Chappell, we feel, has done as
much Qr more to bring to justice, a2d
keep down these midnight incendia
ries -than most any other one man in
the county, and we feel that his
fearlessness in dispensing - justice to
criminals, has been the means of his
suffering -these losses by fire. And
we .do not think it right that he
should lose so much with no aid, and
hope that our suggestion will meet
with favor and be carried out. We
will gladly send in our dues.
