The n>iiiiR opening of Minter and

any or their former effort* in artistic
display. Their store draped with fes
toora of elegant surah and china, silks
and grenadines presented to the eye a
scene whoso varied boauty and gorge
ousness oallod to mind tales of oriental
magnificence. The display of hats and
konnots of every tint and form and

were open on Sunday excopt tho Presby
terian where the various conoregatlons
united in beautiful services, commem

The pulpit was tastefully and elabor

and rare hot house plants. A choir
specially organized and trained for the
occasion by Mrs. C. W. Wilkos, fur
nished the music. Among the selections
wore tho ??gloria" from Farmer's Masss,
In B flat, and "Chriat, tho Lord is risen
to-day," Mozart. The programme was
artistically rendered and lont much
to tho service. The paator, Rev. A. O.
Wardlaw, preached from Luko 24: 5 and
0. "Why seek ye tho hying among
tho dead? He is not here but is
risen." Tho sormon forcibly prosontetl
tho proofs of Christ's actual resurrec

composition was scholarly throughout
and abounded in eloquent passages.
Of course tbo usual profusion of gay

The low prices paid for cotton are
causing mauy farmers In this sec
tion to change their way of Farm
ing, or at least their way of plnn ling
and have set resolutions to make
corn, wheat., oats and raise cattle
and sach things as must be had at
home. The man who Is in debt
thinks the only thing that will pay
them is cotton,and we admit it is the
best way at former prices, but not
at the present prices. We think
the best method of farming to live
by would be the best to pay debts
by. We think our people are in bet
ter circumstances than they have
been in ton years?think it is be*
cause they have been sticking to
gether a little better, never knew
the farmers to stick unanimously on
anything but once and that was on
"Tillman." Hope they will continue
to stick utrti' things become more
equal and just.
