during the week. It is not too had for
mo to attend church on Sunday. The
truth is, church attendance ought to
have first place, since Christ gave
pro-eminence to seeking the kingdom
of God and His righteousness. Clear,
cold weather, of which we often have
au abundance, is invigorating to those
who are enjoying reasonable health,
provided they exercise prudence ta
dress, and so the fact that It is a cola
day is in many instances no valid ex
cuse for being absent from God's
House. Men will often be satisfied
with our excuse a. but reasons only
will satisfy God. Some excuse them
selves from church attendance on ac
count on having company. Either in
vite your company to go with you, or
ask thorn to excuse you while you at

your visit to a friend or relative will
prevent their attendance of church,
better postpone that visit, and go
when you will not interfere with Uioir

SENECA. Dec. 1.?On last Friday
night "Jack" Grant, acting night po

thought to be one of a gang of car
breakers that were operating on the
main line of the Southern. The oth
er members succeeded in making their
escape .though closely pursued by
Special Agent Parttee of the South
ern's detective force, with blood
hounds. The man arrested by Po
liceman Grant Is now lodged in the
county Jail at Walhalla but reruses
to give his name or divulge any in

are of the opinion that he Is in some
way connected with the robbery of the

Mr. T. S. Stribling has accepted a
position with the Heath, Bruce, Mor

paring to move his family there this
week. Mr. Stribling is a good man
and a patriotic, public-spirited citi
zen, and his removal is a distinct
loss to Seneca, and will be regretted
by ail. He was raised on his father's
farm two miles north of heer and' the
only other move that he ever made
was when he moved in to Seneca
some 15 years ago. into the house
that he moved out of this week. He
and his interesting family will carry
with them the well wishes of every
one in Seneca, for happiness and suc
cess in their new home.
The marriage of Miss Blanch Sud

charging a large-private practice. He
has. recently returned from London
where he went for special study In
his chosen profession. Dr.. Hines is
eminently qualified add equipped for
such a position as the one suggested
above, and should It be true that ha
has accepted It, Anderson has strong
cause' for congratulations. Though his
removal'would be a. hoayy loss te this
town, for Dr. Hlnea is not only an j
able.and aggressive physician, but hoi
is a wide awake and public spirited
citizen, always just as ready to push
anything for the good' of his com
