A HAPPY OCCASION.
The beautiful country home of
Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Hendrix was at
its best on last Sunday. The home,
set in a grove of maple and English
poplar, had just received a fresh
coat of white paint. The wide
porch, with its abundant shade, its
porch swings and seats and its many
potted plants, was a delightful spot.
The hall, the parlor and the dining
room, "all garnished and sweet,"
m.de a pretty picture with its deco

L[TT LE NORMAN STEWART
On Wednesday morning of August

death angel visited and called for its
victim, little Norman, the five-year,
old son of Mr. and Mrs. T.. A. Stew

Norman was only sick just a few.
days, his suffering was intense for
the last few hours of his life, but
just before the end came he was per
fectly quiet and calm and he called
for his little sisters, brothers and
also his loving mother to the bed
side and sweetly told them he must
go over yonder. He said it was a
beautiful place over there, then he
passed away quietly in that peace.

Little Norman was a manly little
fellow and seemed to b the light
of the home. I-fe was loved and ad
mired by all who knew him, but God
loved him best, and he is gathering
bu'ts every day.- and he had a place,

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. 1

O our la s a I t;,, i say it
is hi:,h time that we get busy, be
cause it is the duty of all men to
see that our laws are enforced, and
especially during a revival meeting, 1
for during the Wesleyan meeting
that just closed last night at Six
Mile there was about ten so-called t
"young men" (I mean in size), that
violated the law by disturbing the t
public worship of God. So sad to 1
say, but true, some young people (so
called) will be so wicked as to do
such a thing. And I feel like it
would only be doing them justice if
they were punished for this offence.
Now, if it were the first time, I could
say, as did one of our judges once,
"Young men, I give you the second
chance," and let them go, unless a
worse thing came upon them. Say,
I am speaking out of my own ex
perience, because I reproved them
last year in a meeting at Gap Hill
church, and spoke of having them
brought in by the rains of justice,
and I have heard of late that our
good sheriff, Mr. Roark, went to see
some of them. Say, Mr. Sheriff, I
would be glad if you would go over
to Six Mile and look into this matter
for the Methodist preacher, because
on the night of July 31st they .broke h
out one of the Ford's eyes and pull- t
