BEWARE WHERE U GO A-COURTINE
Social Items---Mill Folk---Attemptcd Sui
From all appearoinces it seim
that the brumal days are gono and
the estival are in their atca(d. With
the chango green f ilingo tins begun
to put forth its beonliifil a ppear
ance, little birds have begun to
chirp their sweet FongS; the far
nmr bas begun to till the koil for
anoth er crop, lion tnmo is in order,
guano is plentiful, sooi th old
woinan can get a new dreks on that
lien the girls new hats and John a
pair of brogan shoos ; May ' mill be
here and what, a nico timo at the
Well, if it was not for the "ins,'
there would be no pleasure and
life would not be worth living, and
on the other hand if there wore no
couts'' a lazy man would never
w >rk any, consequently his diges
tivo organs would sool gkt so thoy
wouldn't work, aid like an old
wagon he would s, on lie no good.
So you see every ti ig is for a pur-.
pose. If you don't greasc a w:.gon
it won't last, and if a person don't
work to get gicased they won't
last. We often think it ought to
be a sin, whether it is or iot, for a
lazy man's children to have to work
so hard to keep their daddy from
screaking. We have often thought
that if we had had a "screaky
daddy we would have pllayed out
a little too, and' maybe we could
have out lasted him, and if we
Could, after ho was gone we would
have now boxes put in and try, to
make a very respectable old %nag
on. If any person will visit a cot
ton miil and soo the daddies that
are being greased by their children
they will say somotaling ought to
be dono to check the tido. Those
"screaky" daddies are the beat in
formed men we have so to speak
They are real .entertaining, and
always among a crowd. They
know just exactly how much grease
it tak.:s to keep the wheel turning,
and whenever the Cotton M ihl Co.
fails to give their children enough
to hesp that wheel greased without
any work on their part they are
then ready to seek cother quarters,
anid the mill bhlinid them is no
gtood. What a blessed thing it is
that such menul are blessed with
children, for it would be deplora
ble to hear of .a man porishiing tc
death on accont of laziness. Take
4. notic3 wo don't style every man at
a cotton mill asB a "'screaky " man,
but just those who don't work
themselvyes and depend onl theiu
little childroni for a support- A
cotton mill is a good place for
smart man. There is good mnono)
for a working man. We know ol
men that heave made handsomei
sums at a cotton mill and redoomet

The quietude of this little ham
let was somewhat stirred up one
evening last week over an attempt
ed icide, the particulars of w hich
were just this: The old woman
has two girls, and these two gir's
have for the time being what they
style ''sweetheairta."' Th'e old wo
mnan beinlg bitterly opposedI to any
imore connection in the family,
objects to the girls entertaining
their "sweethearts.'4 The sweeit
hearts being p~retty shrewd fellows
and1 up to all kinds of tricks, had
the girls to slip out and a vebioli'
wvas in readiness for a pleasant
ride. WVhen the old woman dis
covered that she had been duped
sho resolved to end her life l.y
driaking laudanum. 01 coursw
this broke up the ride, and th1c
girls returned home to help sirve
the life of their mother. With th<
help of Dr. Justice, they succeedetc
in saving her life. Well, this torn
up the boys' p)lay house for th<
timo being, and the next thing ir
order to end their troubles and giv<
temp~orary relief was to take thi
same vehicle and visit "U~ncli
Ben's" drug shop at Pickoe. Welj
of course the boys were trouble<
and took on a little too much-. I
would have taken the best medi
Scal skill in the State to have tolt

about alike. We hear that WraI
