How are the prospects for fruit
in each section of the county?
A good many peaches in this
noighborhood, but none at my
home. We have a nice orchard
and the trees were loaded with
peaches. I had visions of plenty
for home use, and for the editor
and preacher, but alas! and alas!
some of the rest of you will
have to think of them, when
fruit gets ripe.
I hope "13.'' will make his or
her pies a "leetiL" smaller, and
spare me enough peaches f'or
just one pie. Now won't youj

.Speaking of ing thankful,
r se of a praVr I heard
an old negro deliver It the grave
of a iolored sidr. IHe praved:

I couldn't see the funny sidle
-of that prayer at the time', for
they were commnitting to earth
all that was mortal of the best
black girl I ever knew; but I've

I'd think of it.

better than pies, and baked ap

went to his neighbhor's house and
asked thme good housewife what
lie shoujld do vith his chiickens

asked him what he had been
feeding them on, and he re
plied: "Not anything; I thought

Well, I will tell you all some
thing which happened once.
A negro passed a church one
dlark night and heard two voices
in the graveyard, saying, "This
Is mine, and that is yours"
It scared him so had he thought
thme Judgment Day was at hand
and the Lord andl the devil were
dividing up the dead. He ran
half a mile to a white man's
and tol him Judgment D~y
was here. The white man asked
him howv he knew, and the ne
gro told him lhe had just. passed
the graveyard and that the Lord
and the devil were over there
dividing the graves. The white'
man did not believe him, and
the negro told him to come back
with himi and lie would prove It.
T1he two went back together,
and when they reached the gate
of the cemetery they heard the
voices, saying, "This is mine,
and that is yours," just as.the
negro had said, They stood1
there a moment, when one of the
voices said, "Well, that is all
except those two at the gate."
The other voico said, "Yes, go
and get them." The white man
took his hat off- his head and
said, "Leave from here, niggor,
tiey're sure after us." It was
two men who had stolen some
corn and went there to divide
It, and dropped two cars as they
went in at the gate. CLEVIE.
