NOTES FROM MADDEN.
' Things Of Much Interest to People in
Madden, Dee. 13.?Tho Xmas feol.
j ing is in the air. and the children are
, busy sending letters to Santa Clans
j but alas! the hens, in this part of the
burg have gone on a strike and where
is the pound cake to come from? The
usual greeting between house-wives
these days is not "How are you" but
"How many eggs have you got for
I Xmas?' '
j Quite a lot of stealing has been go
' ing on in our little city lately. The
; thieves have been apprehended how
ever, and are now behind the bars.
I Sheriff Owings, Deputy Reid and Con
stable Sullivan arrested rour of the
gang Monday. They have stolen seed
cotton, burglarized the store of Mr.
J. D. Culbertson, and also the lint
cotton that some of the good house
wives had saved for quilts have dis
appeared?not to speak of the Plym
outh Hock pullets. We are glad that
at least, part cf the gang are where
I they will get their deserts.
j Mr. Prophetl has moved to his farm
? recently purchased here.
Mr. Harris has moved to the Move
j ley place just below here.
Mr. Colwee Martin and family of
Ekom. have moved to Mr. J. D. Cul
bertson't. We welcome the^e good
people to our church and community
and hope they will find friends nnd
prosperity in our midst.
At a recent conference meeting, at
New Prospect church, a committee
; was appointed to solicit funds for an
iron fence round the cemetery there
: a much needed and long neglei led
! work. We hope those who litivo
j loved ones buried here will hoc I! is.
though they do not come le re often
' will lend a helping baud The late
Mr. Jerry, left a substantial legacy
for this work and if all who are in
; terostcd, will but give a. '. tie. the
fence can easily be put up. Send your
contribution to 15. Y Cu'bi rtson, Mad
den, or to T. B. Brown, Laurens, It. F.
I). Either will be glad to receive any
amount and give due credit.
"Of the many who us -d to be among
Some have scattered,
Some have lied.
Son ? an T,irrl
Ami some are dead."
Yet we who still keep the fires
burning," hope early in the new y ai
to see a substantial fence around the
hallowed spot where so many of our
loved lie sleeping.
