-Thursday is the 10th of May, the
day that has always been observed as;
Memorial Day by our people. Last
year this day passed without being
observed in ay way, and this should I
not be the case this year. It is of t
course too late for any memorial ser
vices, but the ladies should at least
decorate the gr ayes of the soldiers
with $owerv. This would take but a
short time and the members of the
memoial association ought to see that
it is cdone. The day is religio.usly ob
serveal in every ether town in the
South and it is a pity not to observe it
here in so ne way.

Hr. Editor: Flease allow we a small
space in your paper to correet a rumor
that is afoat in the neighborhood of
Horeb. The rumor rans that I was
on t hunting on the 29th of April, said
day being Sunday. I am a lever of
hunting, but have not loved it o.mach
as to hunt on Sunday, as I have always
been taught that hunting or fishing on
Sunday was naughty, to say nothing
of the sin. There was a friend of
mine spent the day with me on the day
above mentioned, and had a gun and
hunted and killed a bird. I will ask
these who claim that I was hunting to
attach the blame to him
Please attach poverty to me and ex
cuse me from hunting on the Lord's
day. G. W. Brooks.
