It is a truly humorous melange of story Hnd plot—a, ting and singing, and dancing and scenery - all with a purpose and rea son. and Is full of ludicrous situations arid funny scenes, and is entertaining throughout.

KENNEDY. Hundreds of Mon Scouring Ihe Country for a I .out Roy. Kennedy. Dec. 4.—(Special Correspond ence.)---A seel ion of Pickens county is very much excited over the disappear ance of the little 7-year-ctld son of Henry Parsons, who was sent on an errand to a neighbor's a quarter of a mile distant about ten clays ago nnd has never re turned. When he left home the little fellow was accompanied by his pet dog, who returned a few hours afterwards. Hun dreds of men are scouring tho country, and every few days tlnd what they think are traces of him. but it Is all supposi tion, and hardly seems possible that a child could exist ten days In Ihe woods exposed to the severe weather we have been having. Miss Anna Cook of Colombus, Miss., spent Sunday in Kennedy, much to the gratification of her many friends. Mr. Seay and Miss Ola Suggs of Pick ens county were married last night at the home of the bride, and are on their way to their future home in Mississippi.
