Crossing of River Me use and Capture of Dun by Americans a Gal lant Feat. The crossing of the river Meuse and the capture of the town of Dun by the Americans, when its full details are known, will rank as one of the most gallant feats of the entira operations northwest of Verdun, states a corre spondent of the Associated Press with the American forces on the Sedan front in a dispatch dated Nov 6. The troops who accomplished it will be en titled to rank as heroes, for their work in military crossing the stream was a strategic move of unusual daring. mi.. : : i i i-i r : .e i nie trussing mvuiveu me tuiciug uj. a way over the 160-foot river, a half- mile wide stretch of mud and a 60- toor canai in tne iace oi a irignuui enemy fire. It also involved swim ming by those who knew hav and the pulling of others over ropes. Grap I'hng irons were used to scale the sheer walls of the canal, alon which machine-gunners had been posted, un der the fire of scores of batteries from the hills adjoining. Another formidable enemy defense line, on which the Germans planned to make a stand, was smashed by the Americans late Tuesday when they captured the town of Letanne, in the bend of the Meuse, south of Mouzon. This line was part of the new defences aloner the Meuse from Stenay north- An elaborate trencn trust that it may soon have sDent it strength, and affairs beconii normal again. We are getting hungry for preach ing again, and have had an example of the deprivation and blessedness of Gospel privileges, which I think will act as a stimulant toward fuller ap preciation. Our ministers have been kept busy visiting the sick apd bury ing the dead, and like our noble doc tors, many of them have sacrificed their lives on the altar of duty and humanity. But the skies are bright ening, the scourge abating, and the banner of peace appearing in the dis tance. In the recent death of Rev. Mr. Mills of Rowland, his congrega tions and the country at large have suffered infinite loss, to say nothing of his bereaved family. The exceptionally beautiful weather continues. The cotton picking has fallen behind to some extent on ac-i count of the epidemic among the ne groes, all of whom are now up again: in this section, with no new cases,' and no deaths. Our farmers generally are holding I their cotton for better prices, which1 I hope may materialize, as it is the; most expensive cotton crop ever pro-' duced in the South, and present prices are disastrous. From the extensive: preparations generally being made throughout this country, special at- tention will be given the small grain j crops, and wheat especially, which is! a very wise movement. I am yet confined to the house for the most part, though able to get in and out, and walk short distances:. There are busheis of acorns on the yard from the big oak trees, wnioh render walking raxner pamiui to my injured foot, whose ankle and muscles are still sore and stiff; but I can walk through the house without my cane, can sweep some, water my pretty flowers, and have just finished piecing up a scrap quilt, an occupation of which I am very fond. Also I have been doing some mending "and darn ing, and looking over the winter cloth ing, taking Mr. McAdoo's advice putting on a patch where it was need ed. I always loved to "patch, and: it recalls Civil war days, when 1 learn- j ed my first lessons in the hard school of dire necessity, and at that time one patch was often placed upon an other. My older sister had no fancy for patching (or wearing patches, either), but she had it to do, and wouid often persuade or hire me to take the task off her hands, though she was a beautiful seamstress in the manufac ture of new garments, and managed always to put some neat and dainty finishing touch to our "homespun" dresses. This sister still lives, the childless widow of a confederate soldier, cared for in the home of a niece, in Miami, Fla. She is helpless as a little chiJd, boughs; dear little laddie, who grew into young manhood and fluttered heavenward in the twinkling of an eye; and the sweet baby girl "stand ing with uncertain feet where the brook and the river meet," and look ing across from starry brown eves and smiling lips into a future which opened for her speedily at the pearly gates. They are gone, our nestlings, 'out the trees remain, and the earth over which their little footsteps joy ously trod ;and these are some of the reasons why I am so attached to my old country home.

Keep your system clean, as thous ands of others do, by taking an occasional dose of the old, reliable, veg etable, family liver medi cine. Thedford's Black-Draught Mrs. W. F. Pickle, of Rising Fawn, Ga., writes: "We have used Thed ford's Black-Draught as a family medicine. My mother-in-law could not take calomel as it seemed too strong for her, so she used Black-Draught as a mild laxative and liver regulator ... We use it in the family and believe it is the best medicine for the liver made.,v Try it.
