? A FISHING TRIP. ?
This correspondent was Invited by
Kev. W. P. Turner, his life-long friend,
to come some day and go fishing. Mr.
Turner and his family live nbout one
mile from the Saluda River. Accom
panied by a friend wo went last Tues
day. We stopped a few moments at
Mr. Turner's home until he could get
his hooks and bait, nnc then on to
the river. We had been Ashing only
a short while, when this correspond
ent "got a bite." Wo were equal to
the occasion and jerked in time and
from the way it pulled was sure we
had an eight pounder. My pole broke,
but Bro. Turner came to my assist
ance, also my other friend, and by a
careful haul we brought It out and to
my dismay, it was a very large terra
pin instead of a fish. We enjoyed the
fun and excitement all the sume and
set our hooks again, but the wind was
contrary and like some other fisher
men, we read about in the long-ago,
we "caught nothing." There was
plenty of water In the river and plenty
of fish In the water we think, but they
would not blto. We took up our
hooks, bade our friend good bye with
ihe promise .to try It again another
My friend Turner Is a Prince of good
fellows. We enjoyed our outing and
the pleasure of being with him again.
He Is usually BUCCOBBful at fishing too,
and Ood has also called him to he a
"fisher of men," and I am sure If peo
ple will listen and accept tho truth
as taught by him, happiness In this
life nnd in the next will be theirs.
