H. H. MEDLIN,
Our enthusiasm as an "ink slinger"
is running rather lowt at this par
ticular-time and we hardly know what
to tackle to fill up our space this week,
or maybe it might be a little more de
sirable to some not to have it filled
as there are sone people that are not
interested in lengthly communications
sermons etc. We were told recently
a story about a Methodist preacher
who had prepared his sermon during
the week and on Sunday morning
rather hurriedly he "shoved" it in his
pocket and when he began preaching
he soon discovered that he had about
only half the (late he had prepared
which cut his sermon short for that
(lay. Returning home he asked the
good wife if she could tell him what
became of the balance of his sermon ?
She told him that just a (lay or two
ago she saw one of the puppies in the
yard playing with a letter and per
haps it might have' been the sermon.
This became known to the public and
it appears ,that there was another
minister in town) of another denomina
tion who was quite lengthy with his
sermons and some of the folks who
preferred shorter talks goes to the
Methodist preacher's wife to trade for
one of the puppies and the price would
be no objections if the puppy would
continue to take about half the ser
Ilions the parson prepared. Possibly
if we will shorten our communication
The Times will sell at a premium.
The Rev. Mr. Thaver. of the First
Baptist church, Sumter, and Rev.
Ansley of this place exchanged pul
pits Sunday and it is said that. Mr.
Thayer preached one among the
strongest sermons that has ben
preached in this town in niny a (lay.
No doubt Rev. Ansley gave the Sum
ter people something worth while as
he usually measures up to a forty
It is very gratifying to report that
Rev. T. E. Morris has sulliciently re
covered to assume his work againi as
pastor of the Methodist coigregation.
Mr. Ed Felder of the Silver section
died very suddenly Suinday morning.
Mr. Felder was teaching the Bible
Class at Andrew's Chapel church and
Just- about the close of the lesson dis
cussion he fell over on his face and
was at once picked up aid placed oin
a benclih and just about the tine he
was straightened out lie said "its all
right" and by this time he was dead.
The deceased is survived by his wife
and eight chiltren, three 'boys id
five girls, five brothers and t'wo sis
ters and I number of relatives. The
funeral services took place Tuesdhay
I mornig at Andrew's Chapel church
an iteriient at tne Summerton
cemetery. His five brothers, W. E.,
R. L., A. E., J. P., and F. A. Felder
and his neplhew T. C. Felder acted as
pall bearers. The deceased was sixty
one years old, a man of high ideals
and a consistent member of Andrew
Chapel church, "peace to h is ashes."

SERIOUS CRISIS MAY SOON *
FACE LLOYD GEORGE
Dispute Between Miners and Govern
ment Drifting Into Deeper Water
Every Day-Itailway Men May
Strike-Important Political De
velopmnents Expected to Hang on
Triple Alliance Labor Meeting
London, April 4. --The signs tonight
pojilt to the (ispute between the coal
miners aind the governiment drifting
in the direction of the iost serious .
industrial crisis in recent years. There I
aIre rumors that the government has j
decided upon certain military steps,
which are likely to still further in- I
flame the miners, while further emer- L
gency regulations will be issued in ac- .
cordaince with orders in council giving i
the various governmental departments j
almost unlimited powers to take .pos
session of mines, lands, buildiigs,
works, gas, electric and water sup- j
plies, horses, food and forage aid to
requisition all kinds of transport, in
cluding tramways and light railways,
to close ports or harbors, control ship
ping and cargoes, fix prices of coal
and proh ibit or regulate the sale and I
supply of iotor Spirit.
Much may dlepend upon the attitude
of the government as revealed by the
debate in the Hlouse of Commons to
morrow and Wedlnesday will be the
critical day, eleciding whether the
other sections of the triple alliance .
the railwaymen and transport work -
ers, will strike in support of the
Strong for Strike
Tl railwaymen strongly f.vor a
strike, on the ground that when rail
ways are taken out of government
cont0rol a similarc i situatiol may arise
and unless they support the mi ners
now they cain not expect thi miners'
support shoulI they need it at that
Moderate opinion is result ing in fav
or of the regulation offered Satu rday
by Alfred Higeland, coalition unionist,
Chat the so-called decontrol hill should
be rescionledl and the time limit for
eontrol fixed for May 30, instead of
Ma1rch 31, thereby giving time for
discussion and arrangement of the
wages question and the e(ucation of
the miners to the real indlustrial posr
tionl at home and abroad.
John Robert Clynes aml Arthur
Ienlerson, the most independent of
the Liberals, intend to press this sig
gestion upon the government tomor
It is helieved that the governlmelit
will refuse to accept, this suggestion
and that the premier will base his
position upon the simple proposition
that it is impossible for the country
in the present state of its finances
to bear any further burden in the
shape of a subsidy to the miners. It
is not impossible that. important po
litical developments may hang upon
the triple decision Wednesday.
