CHAT ABOUT UNION CHURCH.
Hustler No. 2. Writes this Time. More
Truth than Poetry.
Lyebly, N. C., Dec. 25.
Christmas-day, is a day to bn
numbered with the past; although
it has brought many to the en
joyment of another ensuing New
Year.
We are all glad to hear of
Christmas, and of the bounteous
gifts. But, Oh 1 It is tough for
the chickens and turkeys.
The long promised and expect
ed has come at last. That is, the
chain-gang, which has its loca
tion near Union Church. On ac
count of the recent wet weather
they cannot move all their ma
chinery. We notice they are ma
king a very handsome'start, so let
the good wrok go on.
Our school holidays are but
few, and then nothing but hard
* work to hand. The students that
have returned from Hickory, N. C.
have a very interesting story to
tell, how “Hickory is buildiug up
so fast.” She is now planning to
establish her street car line. Her
scenery is very fine and Lenoir
College is run to perfection. The
largest number of students have
been enrolled this term, that has
ever been known. The manu
facturing establishments all have
modern and up-to-date machi
nery, so Hickory is coming on.
We wish this town great success.
Now[winter’time is here again,
□ And soon will the snow-flake
come;
For the bees, their humming have
quit;
For the good old winter time.
So squirrels you better hide ;
Up in a tall, tall tree;
And rabbits too, may get fooled.
For holiday sport is here.
The school at Union Academy
will give one week vacation to
their scholars, commencing Janu
ary the 1st. We hope the stu
dents will turn a new leaf by this
time.
G. A. Boger, says he expects to
enjoy himself during the holidays.
We hope he won’t hurt himself,
for they won’t last always. Ire
main, wishing the Editor a hap
py Dew year together with the
many subscribers to the Watch
man, Hustler No. 2.
Variety of Tarheel Products.
A Washington dispatch last
Wednesday stated that a firm in
the capital city had received from
a North Carolina mountaineer a
consignment of six bald and
American eagles and six wild
geese, all hungry. The geese were
caught several months ago and
have been trained to act as decoys
for wild ducks and geese. Each
one of them has the web in one
foot out and the bone in one
wing removed, so that whether
swimming or flying they move in
a circle and are forced to
come back to the place they
started from. Put overboard
these geese attract wild ducks
and geese so that the hunter may
get a shot at them. As much as
one hundred dollars is paid for a
well trained decoy goose. And
besides geese and eagles large
quantities of mistletoe are re
ceived in Washington from North
Carolina.

McClure’s Magazine is bought and
read in homes not because it is a maga
zine, but because it is the magazine.
Why?
jgFIRST—THE PRICE. It costs but
one dollar a year, or less than ten
cents a number, for over thirteen hun
dred tvro-column pages of reading mat
ter. This amounts in actual bulk to
twenty to twenty-live books costing
anywhere from a dollar to two dollars
a volume.
SECOND-QUALITY. The reading
matter is written by America’s lead
ing writers—the best short story' wri
ters, the best writers on timely ar
ticles, the best writers of important
serials, such as Scliurlz’s Reminisceaes
or Baker’s Railroad articles.
THIRD—TIMELINESS, The read
ing matter in McClure’s is not only
good ; it '8 not only entertaining, amu
sing, instructive and inspiring—it is
also about the subjects in which you
and all Americans are most interested
at the time. No subjects in the next
twelve months are going to be so im
portant as the question of railroad
rates and rebates and the question of
life insurance. Both of these quest
ions will be discussed by authorities in
an impartial, careful, interesting way.
FOURTH—IT’S CHARACTER. Mc
Clure’s Magazine is not edited for
children, but at the same jtime, there
is never a line in it that any young
girl might not read. Its advertising
pages are as clean as its editorial
pages.
McClures Magazine
in your home is intended to work only
for‘.good. Send $1.00 to-day for one
year’s subscription, or leave an order
at ,your book-store. November and

king up the business of securing sub
scribers for McClure’s. It is clean
and self-respecting—a puplicntion any

■| 5 One of the things, that we have always been very grateful for is gif
£ S that our patrons, have been more than kind in sneaking about our E®
? 3 drug store to their friends, and in inviting them to come here and
| trade. Of course this is, what we wish, and we will try to conduct
| S our drug store in such a way that it will appeal to all of onr cus- 1*5)
F | tomers, so strongly that they will take it upon themselves, to invite |Y
| | their friends and urge them to come here and do all of the r drug ill
t i store trading with us, and thus obtain the very best drugs, chenn- 6*0
I? 3 cals, ect., that the markets of the world afford. Certainly, any more {®
that you can speak for us will be most sincerely appreciated and we gjj
take this opportunity of thanking you in advance for whatever you vKa
may say in our behalf. AI TEH ALL the best recommendation of a
drug store is the store itself. We might go on and tell you a great ill
deal about our drug store. Your friends might tell you much more, UB
but you w ill never know what kind of a drug store it is, until you
have come in and traded with us. That is w’hat wre ask you to do. it'.
We believe that you will like the store after you once get started 0O
trading writh us. We want you to feel at home. Do not hesitate in j®
asking us anything that you think proper. If it is within our pow
i er, we will try our best to accomodate you, and we will always try, §X|
jj to the very best of our ability, to give you full value received-and S®
3 more too for the money that you spend with us.
