^\NLY 19 more days to do your Christmas shopping!
^ Shop early 1 But why? Because of the annoying
consequences of late shopping.
Take the matter of sending gifts to friends out of town
iy mail or pafed Dost, for example: Late mailing means
k jam in die pottoffice. a congestion in die maO car and
n die delivery wagons. Packages bought lite and mailed
ate may arrive many days, even weeks after; Christmas.
Ask your postman what he thinks about this point. He
an tell yon a lot of ilhimmating things about the results
>f late shopping and late m-iling of gifts.
Take the matter of gift selection- Shop late and your
hence is always limited by a depleted, pawed over assortnent
of gift goods. It is hampered by the weariness of
he clerics, by die rods of last-minute buying and by your
mm necessity for haste
Ask any -nerchant. any clerk for a few remarks on these
points. They'll unanimously tell you to shop early# to
hop early in the day, and to shop today and get it over

Shop early! Today!

Something About Records
Left By Dead Members
of Family.
(EL EL Meredith Press Bureau.)
The closing of the war lends inter
est to the adrince arrangements for
the seventh annual reunion of the
Hoolt family to be held at Aurora
Grove, at Honlt, near Fairmont, next
summer. The reunion ol this family
the raei summer was v eil attended m
spite of the gasless Sunday order
which Kept automobiles away ana the
strict orders ol the government ab-rat
crossing the river at the railroad
bridge. The next reunion will be arranged
by the executive committee of
the association which consists of
Hoaias Hoult, of Baxter; Harry Honlt,
of Honlt. and F. J. Smith, of Fairmont,
who is connected with the
Hoults through marriage.
The first Honlt to locate at the village
which has been given that name
was John H-.oit wbc came from Eng
land to Philadelphia. and then to' this
part of the country. He was born on
March 15, 1742, ad died May 28, 1826.
He located on the Monongahela river
abqut 1770 and the second horse ever
brought across the mountains to this
part of the country came with the delegation
of which he was a part. John
Hoult was buried in the cemetery on
the Johnson farm out from Hoult and
there are about a score of other graves
near his. many of whom are believed
to have beea his slaves. His epitaph,
evidently written by himself, read:
"I am John Hoult. 1 have lived 83
years and father of 88 children and
grandchildren in whose veins my noble
blood still flows free, giving vigor
to life, health, strength, beauty and
virtue And now I sleep id hope to
rising up to die again for when I lived
here you see I lived not in vain."
This poetry also appeared on the
"All ye who come this way
To see me in the low estate today
I am John Hoult and "although now
beneath this turf I lie
As yon are now so once was I j
And as 1 am now so yon must be
So now prepare to follow me."
On another of the tombstones was
engraved "Here lies so quiet and still
?Jolly Noisy FIU." This was probably
the grave of a slave, named Phil.
John Hoult married Elizabeth Shirtleff.
who was born December 12.T.748,;
and who died November 4. 1831. To
that union nine children were born.
Eleanor, born February 25, 1771;
Ralph, born September 5,1773; Joseph
born November 7. 1775, and died November
15, 1821; Mary, bora November
15, 1777. and died October 7, 1826;
John, bora July 31, 1780, and died November
28. 1817; Elijah and Elisha
(twins), born February 12, 17S3.
Elisha died December 7, 1783, and Elljar
September 3, 1S51. Enocb. born
October 8,1787, and Eli S.. bora March
30, 1790.
Ralph, or Raphael, who was born
September v5. 1773, had- a son, Joryar,
born February 3, 1805. and died June
5, 1856, from which the majority of
the Hoults active in these reunions
