Thankgiving Day was observed by
almost everybody in town in one way
or another. The weather was pleas
ant, not too sold for comfort, and
those who spent the day out hunting
had a delightful day for their sport.
On Main street the stores were all
closed, and the bank and the postoffice
also, and the dispensary being closed
as well the town was as quiet and
peaceful as if it had been Sunday. In
several churches special thanksgiving
services were held and in almost every
home the day was observed by family
gatherings and feasting.
It is not often that the holiday is
kept as generally as it was Thursday,
and the clerks and most of the busi
ness men ejoyed the day thoroughly.
The graded schools, white and colored,
were closed and the operatives of the
cotton mill had holiday.
