NEWS OF WH1TMIRE, THE
TOWN THAT DOES THINGS
Whitmire, Doc. 27. The last m:k*
post for 1922 ha;> been pissed. Christmas
has conic and gone and numbered
among1 the things of the past. Never
was the anniversary of the greatest
of all events more properly and
appropriately observed. The true
Christian spirit filled all our hearts
to overflowing the spirit to give and
forgive, to regard the widow and orphan
and to pour out the milk of human
kindness to the needy. Strange
to say. all our merchants report bus
iness better on Saturday t'lan im
Chris.mas eve of a year a?o. It's surprising,
at Christmas time, how we
can dig: up a dollar to make others
happy, notwithstanding the ravage;
of the boll weevil and adverse conditions.
How true it is. "Where
there's a will, there's a way."
Last night (Monday) ore' ne?ro
_ fatally wcrunded another a: Cedar
Grove, 2 miles on road from here to
Newberry. There was a dispute over
in foik rnst of told drinks, when
Sam Epps, a tenant of W. A. An
- . drews, drew a revolver and shot
Blake Johnson In the- stomach causing
nine punctures of ihe intestines. Dr.
Brackett took Johnson to the hospital
at Union last night. 1 oday the report
from Union is that there's no
hope for Johnson's recovery. Epps
made his set away. Our newly appointed
state constable, P. T. Harris
the
has been scou
criminal but failed to find a trace of
him. With this exception there has
been nothing in oar section to mai
the sweet pleasure of "peace o:: earti'
*and good will to men."
The delightful program of the E?
worth-league was carried out Sunday
nigh: without a hitch. The whole affair
was of a high order -especial:;
