Thanksgiving brought no event of
unusual interest but was most pleas
antly and quietly observed. Tho

On Saturday November 14tb, we
were present at a corn-shucking at
our neighbor, Mr. 9. T. Stewart's,
together with several of oar friends.
One of those present came through
one of Mr. Stewart's turnip patches
and was telling about how flue and
large turnips bo found there; So
after dinner Mr. Stewart asked all
who wished to see a real large tur
nip to go with him toanolher patcb.
So several of us went and certain
ly and a whopper. He decided to
Iiull up the largest one and weigh
t. After all present bad guessed
how much it would weigh. It was
of tho White Norfolk Qlobo varie
ty, and weighed exactly twelve
pounds and measured twenty-eight
and one-half Inches in circumfer
ence. It was the largest turnip
ever seen by any one present. And
by the way that is not the ouly large
thing our friend Stewart has for he
has raised a very largo family, and
more than that he has made his
own living at home as far as It Is
possible for a man to do, never buy
ing corn, flour, meat nor molasses.
It strikes us that if more of the
people of this country wore to do
the same thing thero would not bo
such a cry of hard times and wo
could certainly pull through awhile
longer without the Free Coinage of
Silver, while there is no doubt in
our minds about It being restored
to its rightful place as one of our
money metals In tho not far dis
tant future, yet It behooveSvevpry
man to corao as near living at
home as he can. Thero is, in our
opinion only one safe way for a
man to live and that is as we have
said bet?re raise your supplies at
home as far as possible and then
as much cotton as you can thor

family in the Revolutionary war,

Tho readers of this paper will bo
pleased to learn that there is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to euro In all
its stages, and that is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
posltlvo cure known to the medi
cal fraternity. Catarrh being a con
stitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh cure is taken internally,
acting directly upon tho blood and
mucous surfaces of tho system,
thereby destroying tho foundation
of the disease, and giving tho pa
tient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting naturo
in doing its work. The proprietors

powers, that thoy ofTeV ono hundred
