All our business houses were closed on
Thanksgiving Day and an opportunity
given the hard-worked, closely confined
clerks to slay the innocent birds of the
field without regard to age, color, kind
or previous condition. Why Thanksgiv
ing should be seized upon by almost ev
ery man and boy in the community to
go forth for the purpose of waging an
indiscriminate slaughter of beasts of the
forest and birds of the field is beyond
our comprehension.
The Whist club, composed of the elite
of Greensboro society, was entertained
by Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Kimbrough at
their residence in the country in royal
style on Thanksgiving Day.
Dr. F. M. Peterson and Mrs. Peterson
have returned from a lengthy visit to
New York.
Mrs. Phares Coleman of Montgomery
and Mrs. Dr. H. T. Inge of Mobile are in
Greensboro to attend the marriage of
their sister, Miss Mary Peterson. Miss
Mamie Stickney of Atlanta is also on the
same mission.
So far as your correspondent can learn,
the populites of this county are opposed

For the first time in several years the

then the president has not received Lord
