Thanksgiving at the Church.
Thursday laut, was duly observed, as
a day of prayer, and thanksgiving by a
a union service of all the churches in
the large and beautiful temple of the
Presbyterians In this olty. It was a
typical Piedmont November day. love
ly, and the bouse though not full, waa
a good audience, largely made up of
iadics. The Rev. Mr. Adams, the pas
tor of the church, conducted the ser
vices, and preached the sermon, as
sisted by Revs. Messrs. Clark and Car
lisle of the Methodist churoh. Rev. Mr.
Pitts of the Baptist church was absent,
attending the Baptist convention in
sossion at Greenville. Mr. Csrllslo
read the President's Proclamation set
ting apart the day for thanksgiving
and religious observance by the sixty
five millions of people forming our
great oummunity. Mr. Adams read the
Psalm, 145, and took for his text, verse
11, Psalm 06: Thou crow nest the year
with thy goodness; and thy paths drop
It was a simple, beautiful and elo
quent discourse. In his exordium he
related the saying of a great divine,
that he was often called to pray for the
siok, but rarely to return thanks for
the recovered; the story of the ten lep
ers who were cleansed, and the one
that turned back to return thanks. He
contrasted the surroundings of these
sixty five millions to whom the Procla
mation is addressed, with European
peoples: the blessings of the peace we
enjoy: the quasi state of war of the
greatly armed nations abroad and the
burdens entailed upon the people; the
complicated entanglements and rela
tions of these; our civil and religious
liberties; tho blessings showered upon
the nation and particularly our South
land, the dosing days of the year going
out in peace and reviving prosperity.
This beautiful and eloquent presenta
tion of the blessings for which we should
be thankful to God was closed with the
climax of tbe preolous gift of his son
as our saviour and redoomer.
A Delightful Christinas Magazine.
The Christmas Ladies' Home Jour
nal by far surpasses, both in.literacy
and artistic excellence, any previous
is8iio of that popular magazine. Con
splcuons among the contributors are
ex-President Harrison, who gives the
introductory paper of the series he is
preparing upon "This Country of
Ours"; Mrs. Mary Anderson de Navar
ro, who most interestingly tells of "My
First Appearance on the Stage"; and
Mary E. Wilklns,-who gives the first of
"Neighborhood Types" papers. Rud

fascinating story, "The Holiday Dance

James Whitcomb Riley's tendorly re
miniscent poem, "At the Gate" (super
bly Illustrated by A. B. Frost), and
Kate Greenway's winsome dainty little
people, are two page features of the
Decembor Journal. Mrs. A. T. D.
Whitney in a "Friendly Letter to Girl
Friends" sharply criticises Bociety for
what it is, and snows its true mission
or purpose, and a fitting page-mate to
it Is Lilian Bell's caustic analysis of
"The Man Under Thirty-Five," a bril
Uantly-witty paper. Edward W. Box
editorially discusses the South and
Southern people, directs attention to
"An Evil cf the Holidays," chats upon
"A Young Christmas" and "Young
Men and Evening Work." Dr. Park
hurst talks strongly in condemnation
of "The Passion of Money-Getting";
Hezokiah Butt er worth tells "How
Longiellow Wrote "His Best-Known

tho latter gives all the plans and de

Died at her residence in Laurena
countv, S. C, on August 12th, 1805,
Mrs. Rebecca E. Patterson, in the 58th
year of her age.
The deceased was a devoted Christian
having united with the Upper Duncan's
Creek Baptist church when quite young.
A few years ago she withdrew from that
church to help organize the Lanford
church. She was a consistent member
for more than thirty years. She was
confined to her room for five long years
and bad two strokes of paralysis, the
last one proving fatal. She leave seven
children, a broken-hearted husband,
who was ever trne and faithful to her,
and a host of friends to mourn her loss.
But they weep not as those who have no
hope, for we feel our loso is her gain.
Her remains were carried to Lanford
church and tbe funeral services con
ducted by her former pastor, Rev. E. O.
Watson. May the Lord comfort her
husband and her children and host of
friends and relatives in their affliction.
"Blessed are the dead which die in the
Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the
Spirit, that they may rest from their
labors, and their works do follow them."

Danger from Catarrh.
Tho most important feature
about that very common complaint,
catarrh in the head, is its tendency
to develop Into some other more
serious and dangerous disease. The
foul matter dropping from the head
into the brochial tubes or lungs is
very liable to lead to bronchitis or
consumption, that destroyer which
causes more deaths In this country
than any other disease As catarrh
originates in impurities in the blood,
local applications can do but little
good. Tho common sense mothod
of treatment is to purify tho blood,
and for this purpose there is no
preparation superior to Hood's Sar
sarparilla. The powerful action of
this medicine upon tho blood ex
pels every impurity, aud by so do
ing cures catarrh and givos health

And every taxpayer is required to
give the number of their ncbool district.
After tho 20th day of February next
fifty per cent, penalty will bo attached
for failures to make roturna.
In every community thoro aro persons
who cannot road or that do not tako a
newspaper. Those more fortunate may
do auch persons a great favor by telling
them of the timo to make returns or by
returning for them.
The assessing and collecting taxes is
all done in tho samo year, and we have
to aggregate tho number and value of all
horses, mules, cattlo and other pioces of
personalty, as well as the acres of land,
lots and buildings and their value, that
there is in tho County, and have the
same on fllo in Comptroller General's
oflico by the 30th day of June of oach
year, and from that time to the first day
of October the Auditor and Treasurer's
duplicate have to bo completed and an
abstract of the worein tho Comptroller's
olllco by that time, which will Show at a
glance that the Auditor has no timo to
tako returns or anything -Ise much be
tween the lBt day of March and tho'1st
day of October but work on tho hooka
and the blanks. We hope thoretore
that all taxpayoro will make their re
turns in time.

'HC REVIEW OF
REVIEWS, as its
name implies, gives in
readable form the best
that appears in theotiier
great magazines all over
the world, generally on the same date that they
are published. With the recent extraordinary
increase of worthy periodicals, these careful
reviews, summaries, and
quotations, giving the
gist of periodical litera
ture, are alone worth
the subscription price.
Aside from these departments, the editorial
and contributed features of the Review of Reviews are themselves
?Qual hi extent to a magazine. The Editor's "Progress of the World" is
with pictures on
every page of the men and
women who have made the history of the month.
Tbe Literary World says: " We are deeply
impressed from month to month with the value
of the 'Review of Reviews,' which is a sort
of Eiffel Tower for the survey of the whole
field of periodical literature. And yet it has a mind and voice of its
own, and speaks out with decision and sense on all public topics of
the hour. It is a singular combination of tho monthly magazine and~ hER
the daily newspaper. It is daily in its freshness
it is monthly in its method. It is the world
under a field glass."

Elkhart, Indiana. The Winner of the Machine may make his
own selection from their catalogue.
The "Acme" Bicycles cost One Hundred, Ninety and Eighty

Catalogue, regardless of price.

All you have to do is to get cash subscribers to The ADVERTISER.
Any boy 01 girl can get subscribers. Any person young or old can get
this fine bicycle by making a little effort. A list of five subscribers may
win it. If a lady wins tho bicycle she may get a ladies' wheel. Or she
may get a gentleman's wheel and sell it if she prefers.
It is a good plan to begin work at once.
As soon as you get a subscriber send in his name and the money so
that the paper may be promptly sent to him. State that you are a con
testant for tbe bicycle and an accurate list will be kept of all the name?
you send. Two half year or four three months subscribers will be
counted in the contest, as one.
No Loss Possible.
Not Even of Time. "If I don't get the largest list I shall have had
my trouble for nothing" you say. No ymi won't cither. Tbc Adver
tiser will give at the em) of the contest, except to the winner ol tlu
bicycle, twenty-five cents for each subscriber sent in by a contestant
So if you get forty subscribers you may win the bicycle. If you'don'i
you get ten dollars anyhow.
No person in anyway connected with The t ADVERTISER will b<
allowed to enter the contest.
Don't lose a minute. Begin at once. Who gets the "jump" lias s
