- atitiseMNCEOF 1900
Kftskci City- Me., Dec. 2--s I look iack upon th year of 1900, the year now fast drawing to a close, I am constrained to pause and think. Only a little while ago we wolcomed dear 1900 and now Its race is almost run, and it will soon give place to its successor. The years a re not unlike ourselves in some respects; they pass away and give place for others, so we are allotted a little space here and then pass away, and our places are filled by others. Well do I remember January let; doubtless many of us made good reeolutions on that day, perhaps some have been forgoitUn, others I trust are bright in memory as one that I made on that day. It can never be forgotten. It is encouraging at the end of the year to know that at last one hope has been realized-oue resolution kept. The first few months of the year were happy, busy days. April and half of May were especially busy as we were closing up our years' work. The 15th of May was a day that had long been looked forward to by many of Sus-commencement day,-every one in 'r-ash and hurry to get her trunk packed ready to catcb her train-early next morning. That night all started ofto the. chureh where the commence; trenft exercises were to be held, In hig spirits; not even the rain that poured In torrents could depress our = rits, and when once Inside the rWh as yogazed upon the. (aces of thoe appy graduates, you would seareely have guesped that a storm was raging outside. Next morning the ex"ltemsat had still not cooled, and *hed reisaaw our trunks roll away, .wet S tht a ptrt of ourselves had gone, and that we, toD, must follow soon. There was a mingling of joy and 0]( -riww in that-day-sorrow that hbj Wj fto soon to leI those whom we had learned to loveso dearly In eight short months, but joy because we :W0 - osu - bewIti -those -loved ones at home who were waiting and watching for no. Our journey home was very pleasant. Some of our num be~' very seasi6k, -which Uad tthMrt~rprther-glooiy, but iost of us stood the long, weary trip very Il indeed. I found that 1 codld maleea througi route with only one 'o f any consequence and that was in Spwanburg, 8. L. low hard to toP five Iong bours-so near home and the loved ones there!

The weather is just charming, and the old 1960 seems gently gliding out of existence on the bright golden wings of the last century that thousands of us can reasonably expect to see close her wings and gently lay her farrowed brow on the bosom of time. As I sit by my fire side and notice the pranks of my dear little boys and sweet little Azile it car ries me back to the happy days of my childhood when it seemed that Christ mas and Santa Clans would -neveri come, but since laying aside cbildish hings and shouldering the responsi bilities of manhood 1, and I guess I might say we, more fully- realize the rapid flight of time. Oh, how our hearts should rejoice to overflowing at Christmas time, for at this time our kind Heavenly Father L2stowed the grandest and most sublime gift that fallen man ever received. And though we be unworthy, yet, at Christmas times, we are forcibly reminded that He is mindful of us still. Our town is very quiet with the ex eption of the boys and their Christ mas combustibles, which at times re nind one of the bombardment of Fort Snmter. Santa Claus, as of yore, was punctually on hand looking very natural, though his beard has grown whiter and has more furrows on his brow; but the dear old fellow. as one of my boys calls him, as he grows in years grows more generous and thoughtful, for i don't think he slighted a single home, and both the rich and pooi hailed his coming -with heerful he-Ar(s But oh, how tiretthe must have been when he got through at White Oak, for it iU said that he wiped the sweat from .his- brow and xcaimed, Well, for little'folks, I'll back White Oak against the Chinese eimpire, but I must stand by her for she-is fulliing the scripture, "Increase and multiply." Now, Mr. Editor, as you enter your new sanctum, I feel that your sheets will be welcomed by the god citizens 6fFairld who ever stand ready to heer yon to victory and also ready to frown down seandal in ail'its forms in the new God-given century.

The good book says, "Offer unto the Lord the first fruits of thine increase." This order seems now to be reversed. The Lord gets the lest fruits, if he gets any at all. We see the people going up io Pai their taxes, this is nothing but right. We should render unto Ciasr the tbings that be Cwear's and unto Gu( te things that be God'.
