'Silver, March 9.-I haven't much
news to relate this week owing to the
fact that our enterprising farmers
throughout the community are most
too busy at present for much pleas
ure. I say much pleasure, for we
have had some in the shape of socia
ables, and occasionally a little dance.
'It was the~writer's pleasure to at
tend one last Thursday night at Mr.
Beatson's, which was given in honor
of two charming young ladies who
were visiting from Elloree, Mis Katie
Wockter and Miss C. D. Way.
It 'was also our pleasure to attend
the closing exercises of the Panola
academy last Friday night, and to
say the least, we were delighted, as
we know everybody must have been.
T'he children certainly acquitted
themselves with much credit to their
eacher and trainer, Mr. W. S. Rich
.Sprim has made its appearance in
our neighorhood. The fruit trees
are in bloom and we begin to experi
nce some of the plasant sensations
aused by an occasional whiff of per
fumed air, as It is wafted towards us
laden with the aroma from the flow
ers. The country Is the place to find
these, and our community Is the
place~to find the country.
By the way, spring reminds us of
the near approach of Easter.
The ladies' missionary society of
Andrews' Chapel are preparing to
elebrate that occasion, and we know
it willbe something nice.
Our community exprienced a very
sad event last week inthe death of
r. Willie Jones, a young man of
about twenty years of age. He was
buried at Andrews Chapel Saturday,
the 7th Inst. We extend our sympa
thy to his bereaved parents. We are
reminded by this young man's sad
death that it Is not always the old
Misses Alice and Leila Davis, of
ordan, spent Saturday and Sunday

WORDS FROM WILSONS.
Wilsons, March 10.-As you haven't
had any news from Wilsons for some
time, we will try and give you a few

Everybody is busy with their work
rying to get ready to plant. I hear
f a few around here that are going
o commence planting corn this
I am sorry to hear of so much fer
ilizers being bought this spring. It
neans a big debt and five cents cot
on to pay it with. But we are glad
o say that the farmers around Wil
ons are not stuck on cotton. They
are a "hog and hominy" people, and
as a rule raise plenty of meat and
read for their own use. And happy
s that people who don't have to buy
neat or bread. There are only a few
n the neighborhood who are going
o try tobacco.
Measles have literally swept this
ountry. A few have them now and
. few more are dodging them.

An election for town officers must take
place next month, the second Monday in
April. A town council is of great impor
tance to a town and every man that owns
property here should interest himself and
see to it that a good set of officers are chos
en. Heretofore there has been a great deal
of indifference as who to put on the council
and the consequence is that one man has
the whole thing on his hands. We sbould
bring forward men who have the welfare of
the town at heart, and who would take a
deep interest in its progress. 'If ever a
town needed a good strong government it
is this. Property owners, if yon sit idly
and indifferently down and refuse to take
an active interest in this matter, do not
complain if you are taxed and you see noth
ing for your money. Do not complain if
your streets become the rendevous for the
boisterous and ro*dy. do not complain if
the laws of the land are violated before
your very faces, and do not complain if
your property does not receive ta protec
tion it should. We throw out the sugges
tion for our citizens to ponder over, gnd if
after this reminder, they will not be
aroused, it is their own fault if men have
themselves elected who are obnoxious. and
who have no regard for law and order.

quite a crowd of the members of the Bap

gave their pastor a fearful "pounding.!

different friends, and a milch cow of much
value we rejoice in the fact that ever since
we have been keeping house our pounding
