Fire Fighting Apparatus a Necessity
The city council was in regular
session Monday night. The prin
cipal discussion was in regard to
the providing of more modern and
efficient fire fighting apparatus, as
much of the city is without the
water supply section, and therefore
exposed to extra hazard. The in
surance board has had a man here
going over the town, and unless a
motor truck equipment is provided,
there will be a stiff raise in insuran
ce rates on every piece of property
m town. Recent destructive fires
have drawn especial attention to
protective, measures, and we should
arrange for the best to be had.

A Ballade Of Coed Advice And Timely
Don't you like a good selection
When to buy a gift you go?
Whatsoever its complexion
You want something comme il fautl
Later, when the stocks are low,
You'll nnd every problem knurly.
Therefore, lest your cake turn dough,
Do your Christmas Shopping earlyl
Don't you hate the deep dejection
Of a 'leventh hour throe,
When a leisurely inspection
You no longer may bestow?
Don't wait till the shops o'erflow;
Shun their steaming hurley-burly;
Not forgetting mistletoe,
Do your Christmas Shopping earlyl
You'll agree upon reflection
This is just the time to show
What's in your professed affection
For the burdened here below.
If you ease their wintry woe
You'll win through the portals pearly
How? Why surely you must know!
Do your Christmas Shopping earlyl
Do not wait till salesfolk grow
Tired and tense or sour and surly!
Do they do that? I'll say so!
Do your Christmas Shopping early!

- Sonny Tutt, a well known colored
man, was out hunting possums Mon
day night, a few others beitg in the
party. They were in the hills near
Sharon church, and hearing a dog
making an unusual noise, they went
to him, when they found him near
an American eagle on the ground.
There was no fight, as the dog would
not get near enough for the lighting
strokes of the eagle's claws to make
connection.' The men all had car
bide lamps, which caused the eagle
to be blinded to a degree, but not
enough for the dog to make an at
tack. Tutt secured a limb and
struck the bird on the head, killing
it. It is a fine specimen of the
plumed brown eagle, measuring over
7 feet in its spread of wings, and
weighing 16 . pounds. It is being
prepared for permanent preservation
and will soon be on display at
Roark's store. There are many
people who have never seen an
eagle, and the display .' will attract
much attention, for this is a splendid
specimen of our nation! bird.
