Next Thursday, being Thanksgiv
ing Day, it is timely to remind the
public that the custom of making of
ferings in kind at Grace Church
morning service on that day, for the
benefit of the orphans, will be ob
served as usual. The Rector feels
that the recent generour donations
for the entertainment closes his lips
to appeal for any other cause, but
the orphans' needs cannot be neg
lected, nor would our people consent
for them to be.
Tithe offerings of the fruits of the
harvest is a gracious and beautiful
act, and the Lord of the harvest
would wish no better disposal of
them than upon His little ones.Sweet
potatoes have been an unusually
bountiful crop, and no food Is better
for c1iildren than these toothsome
tubers. Would it not be fitting to
make a large offering of these to
take the place of the bale of cotton,
formerly sent, when cotton was as
plentiful as blackberries in the spring
glades? The good people of this par
ish will recognize the appropriateness
of this, and if every potato grower
bring a peck of either sort of po
tato, the two Homes in NewOrleans
which care for our West Feliciana
orphans would be supplied for the en
tire season. Cannot this be done?

ing Society next Wednesday after

Through the courtesy of Mr. John
F. Irvine, The True Democrat will
next week contain an article on
"The Meridian College Process of
Kiln Drying Sweet Potatoes," by Dr.
M. A. Beeson, president of the Me
ridian Male College.
President Taft replied very fitly to
that faction of the Daughterq of the
American Revolution, who objected to
a Confederate flag's being used in
the decoration of their hall for the
sessions of the United Daughters of
the Confederacy. Mr. Taft said that
it was about time to quit displaying
sectional feelings of that kind; that
the use of the Stars and Stripes and
the Stars and Bars would certainly be
indicative of a united country. He
went even further. He gave permis
sion to have the flag of the President
used in the decorations, and while he
sat on the stage the folds of an im
mnese Confederate flag fell all around
him. He regards it as an emblem of
the sincerity and devotion of the
Southern people to what they believ
ed to be right and a sign of the
bravery of the men who fought under
it and not the flag of a force hostile
to the United States.
Up to Thursday, nothing had beenl

Dr. Lea, of Jackson, was over Mon

Mr. Louis West's four children have
been ill some time with fever.
There is a perfect epidemic of
colds with fever. The attendance
ýt school is largely affected as many
children are sick. The great preva
lence of colds is generally attributed
to that universal scapegoat, the
changeable weather. Others com
plain that the dust at the hall dur
ing the dancing at the entertain
ment is the cause of the colds and
throat troubles that have appeared
since. The charge is made that the
floor is not scrubbed to get rid of as
much dust as possible before a large
gathering, hence the discomfort gen
erally complained of last Friday
A gentleman, who is a close observ
er, remarked to us that he attributes
the sickness among the school chil
dren to the fact that during some of
the early cold days there was no fire
at all at the high school. On mild
mornings frequently no fire is start
ed, although the natural chill of a
large brick building is perceptible to
the -children, coming as they do,
from homes well-warmed and aired.
We know that this was frequently
the case, last session, but it is an
error that should not be repeated
this year. No ideas of economy
should prevent the building from be
ing heated regularly and systemati
