THURSDAY. Dl-XK MItK.lt 1" TIih workers in a community sym liolizw it prosperity. Whcry thnru i nothing doing, times nre bound to be Htagnnnt. Work means prosperity idleness means want. So work. Are yoa getting that Christians feel inKl If so, jileasB preserve it in ir.oder ation, and celt.'brate the birth of the Saviour of the world in a decent man ner. Saj's the Altamont Comet: "Our Thanksgiving turkey wax a wild one." Ours was wilder than that, for we never saw it. Flat Creek, Ala. Sfitviii to the A.ics. Hard times is the order of the day. Wo have only had a fow light frosts here this winter. Work is picking tip here some. We work four and five days a week. They say times will get good here after a while but wages are low here now. A man can't hardly make a living. They have got coal down to 40c a ton, wheu it used to be lidc and CV, and company work was '2.H'l and $1.73 and now it is 1.70 and 1 . 55. That is getting wages down so low that people can't hardly live. Its a shame the way the laboring class of people will work against each other, and let wages get down like they are. I want to say to the Tracy boys and all others, please don't come to Ala ania to work Stay where you are, boys, don't throw your homes away to come to Alabama, for there is nothing here but hard work. The coal is 0 feet. There is a middle vein of rock in it, twenty inches deep. The coal is four feet on top of the rock and five under. They don't pay anything for moving the rock. Powder is $2.70 a keg and fuse 65 cents and oil is 60 cents and dynamite is $75 a case This is Tuesday night and I have just got out from work, and it is six o'clock. They work twelve hours a day. A bad accident happened here last week. A man's house was blown up, but no one was hurt. I went to Birmingham last waek, and as I returned homo I met a man and he said: "Where are you fromt" I said, "Flat Creak, Ala." He said, "Yon are down there scabbing, are you." I said, "No, I don't think lam." He said, "What are you get ting a day for your labor?" I told him I was just getting $1.55 a day. Ho said, "How long do you have to work for that" I said. "Twelve hours." He said, "Didn't you know that yoa were scabbing'" I told bim that I thought I was by the way they were paying the men. If God will forgive me I will never scab again. I am driv ing a mule here, and have been ever since I have been here at $1.55 a day, and when the union was here they payed $1.82 a day for the same work that I am doing now.

H. Alexander on third page. A great many lines are touched upon, and no doubt, as Mr. Alexander says, qualify is a feature in every' depart ment. Mr. Alexander's reputation for honesty of dealings and truthful state monta regarding his goods is being steadily maintained, and his large cli eutele of customers, prove their en dorsement of his business uprightness.

Thanksgiving in the Army. That army life is not ail together vithout enjoyment is evidenced from the following letter from Corp. Eavert Marlin, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Marlin, of this place, who, with Chas. Martin, also formerly of this place, re- ently joined the TJ. S. army, being assigned to Company L, 1i)th Iuf, sta tioned at Fort Mackenzie, Wyo: "I will write you a few lines us I haven't had a letter from you in a good while, but I guess you got my last letter as I got the Sequachee News all right I have not been feeling very well for a week or so, but I guess I am all right now. They have still got the small pox in Sheridan, and we have four cases here in the Fort. The kind of small pox they have in this country don't seem to hurt anyone very bad, but I don't care to have it. I was on guard duty last night and now I feel very sleepy, and guess I will go to bed after I finish this let ter. We are having a pretty cold snap here now. It was twenty below zero last night I guess it will be much colder before the winter is over What kind of a Thanksgiving dinner did you iaveV I send you a bill of fare of what we had. I bet papa hal to tale a few shots at the shooting match. I got a little box through the iiihU the other day and when I opened it there was a big fake 'spider in it. The spider has springs to its legs and they keep it moving most all' the time. I came very near laying it down when I open ed the box. I have had a wagon load of fnn out of it. Hattie was the cue who sent it you know." The bill of fare was certainly lus cious to look at. Uncle Sam treats his soldier boys well, and for the benefit of the curious we print it as follows: Roast Turkey Oyster Dressing Cranberry Sauce Celery Mashed Irish Potatoes Giblet Gravy Can Corn Bread and Butter Apple Pie Mince Meat Pie Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Cake , Cocoanut Cake Coffee with Cream Oranges, Apples Nuts Cigars Wasn't that regal? And to add, the menu was nicely printed on a card board folder with cuts of regimental symbols, with the following epigrams to think over: "Peace on earth; good will toward men. " "As we journey through life, let us livo by the way." A fig for. your bill of fare' show me your bill of company;" "While we live, let ns live." "Eat, drink and be merry." "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." "An optim ist is a man who has just eaten a big dinner." A roster of the company is also giv en, and Marlin is enumerated among tho corporals,, while among the priv ates appears that of Martin. Both boys are well known in Sequachee, and their friends no doubt will bs glad to read theso few lines telling about them.

Sptcinl to th X'tvi "When you mailt' the world will smile with you. but when yon cry, you cry alone." Dear friends, have you ever stopjxnl to think what a greut thing a smile is? A smiling fce will do much more than one of thoe dark, gloomy .faces. What is the use of us going uronnd with our faces looking like a winter storui cold-' Why can't our faces na wreathed in smiles'? Isn't it a pleasant sight to see a man coming home from his work at the close of day. H" 1h tired and worried. A smiling wife meets him at the ilmir. Her smile quickly drives all marks of worry and cure from his face. Isn't that much better than to bo met by an unpleasant gloomy face. If, when we are worried over some thing and feel as if we would like to cease to live, someone comes to us with a sweet, smiling fuce and utters some kind words of encouragement to us, doesn't it rieem to make our troub les much lighter, and easier to bear If you go about with a pleasant face and a kind word for everyone, it will help others to bear their burdens. Get up in the mornings with a song on vour lips and a smile on your face. Pass all your troubles off with one of these don't care laughs. When yon go to work, sing and laugh as you go, and it will not seem half as hard. Always look on the bright side of life and when there is no bright side brighten up the dark side.
