Hes Mr. S. P. Drury-Tells
About Thanksgiving Day And
The Union Sunday School.
Btautiful Singing And Other
r. S. P. Drury writes in a delight-
y natural way, which is always the
t Interesting, of the Thanksgiving
meeting at "his church," the
ihodist, between Irvlngton and Cus
It is a pleasure Indeed, to hear of
happy occasions over the county
tare being provided by the Sunday
ools and churches for both "old
ks and the young ones " The letter
Editor: I am sorry that I did not
nd you an invitation to attend our
nion Sunday School Thanksgiving,
ovembcr 28th. I will surely try and
better next time. Man is liable to
ny mistakes and I hope you will
Flvit, I want to tell you something
f air effort or aim which was to make
ir Sunday School the most interest-
ng place for the boys and girls to be
found in this section of the county on
hanksgivlng, at the same time to meet
1th all the good people of Drecken
idge county, we possibly could on this
lay and offer up thanks to our heaven-
y Father for the many blessings he has
estowed upon us and our fellow men
nd women in the past.
Well, we surely had a big crowd and
ne of the best old fashioned spreads
or dinners that I have had the pleasure
:o get a share in for years. Pumpkin,
apple, mince and custard pies, fruit
ake, yellow cake, brown cake, white
i'akc, boiled faced or striped, most
ny flavor you might call for. Meat or
meats, why yes, chicken, both boljed
and fried, turkey, boiled ham, beef,
tc, pickles, candy and lots of other
good things too numerous to mention.
We had the tooth picks for the old men
after dinner, but passed them around
to the women first.
Mrs. lva Johnson, superintendent of
the Clifton Mills Sunday school, came
over with her choir and took a part
with us, and I want to tell you we
were glad to meet them and get ac
quainted. Sure, It helps a man or wo
map along over the rough places in
life to meet these people and hear
them sing. They are not afraid tn op
en their mouths so as to be heard.
When it tomes to singing they surely
1 .Brother T. B. Henderson, the Coun-
ty Sunday School Superintendent, was
also with us and made several short
talks on the Sunday School work and
his trip to the National Convention in
California, what he saw and learned.
I have heard Brother Henderson sev
eral times in the past on this line of
the work, but he was in better shace
and made the best talk of his life on
this occasion. Wc appreciated his
talks and hope they may do much good.
Mrs. Herman IaWson, from the
Plains, was, also with us with her class
of small girls. With their songs and
recitations, they were loudly praised.
So we feel thankful to Mrs. Lawson as
well as to her scholars.
, Rev. Walton, from Kingswood,
preached to us at 11 a. m. and it was
a good sermon, being well delivered.
Now there were many other things
connected with the day that I might
write you about, but I think my letter
is getting just a little long. I do enjoy
one of these unlou gatherings wheie
we meet our old friends, neighbors and

How Your Thoughts
Shape Your Face.
We speak of "lines of care" on a
man's face. They are chiseled from
within by worry that burns up the tis
sues and causes depressions beneath
the skin. Pride or cynicism will grad
ually curl the upper lip like a window
awning. We associate a retreating chin
with a weak will and square jaws with
a strong will; but It is the will that
shapes the chin, and nut the chin the
will. Selfishness will set Its ujark on
the face as 'suroly as a kind soul. Nat
ure won't lie for any of us. As we are
within, so we shall finally appear out
wardly. If we covet tho beauty that
makes even a plain face attractive, we
must live the transfiguring life Dr.
