We ap preciate the delicate way in which be expresses his wishes for our future wellfair. The acrostic is as follows, the initial letters of each line forming the names of the parties concerned. C-npid, thy reign has now begun, H-old these two hearts together, A-lways guarl them that they be one, D-oiug thy will forever; W-eld them by thy adhesive iower I-n a way so they can't sever, C-ling them together each day and hour, K-eep them as one forever.

HILL A SON, Srquacoea, Taaa INTERESTING SERVICES HELD SUNDAY Interesting services were held at Owen Church Sunday in the iuterest of the State-wide prohibition move ment. The afternoon service at 3 o'clock was devoted to a discussion of the riioveuient, and a committee to solicit members of Anti-Saloon League and for tho purpose of collecting funds was appointed with officers as follows: Rev. W. D. Dew, president; Rev. J. C. Clonie.of Whitwell, vice-president; J. E. DeSublu, secretary; J. S. Deak ins, treasurer. Interesting remarks were Inade succeeding an address by Rev. W. D. Dew. At the evening service Rev. Dew de livered a fine and scholarly sermon on The Triumph of the Church Over Evil Forces," txt from 15:16 Mathew: Thou art Peter and uion this ltock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" His sermon was evidently the result of much research, and was heard with close attention. A good choir composed of Misses True and Nina Randle, Mrs. Dew and Messrs. Randle, Blanton, Sherman and Curtis, furnished the us- al high-class song service. Mr. Blan ton furnighed a solo, a new arrange ment of words to the well-known air of "Where is Mv Wandering Boy To- ight." Other members of the committee named at afternoon service are as fol lows: Thomas H. Hill. Chas. Curtis and J. S. Bennett Among the mem bers are the following: W, R. Thom as. R. E. Blanton, G. W. Robbins, H. L. Barrett, J. K. Barrett, Frank Law- ... .t i ; n T son, W. . Wilson, nawm rryor,n,oui. Owens, Byron Bennett, A. J. Hunt, Mrs. E. S. Haynes, Mrs. J. R. Jones, Mrs. W, D. Dew, and Misses Grace Thomas and Louise Hill. A collection was taken up and the treasurer in structed to purchase a secretary's book. The large attenduuee present was very gratifying to those who were behind the movement, as it showed conclusively that Sequachee is strong in prohibition sentiments, and that its citizens are determined to. stand in line atrainst !the drink evil, and the harrowing train of curses that follow in its wake. Tonight another meeting will be held at Owen Church, when it is expected that the membership will be largely increased that our town may prove a pattern to outside places in its endorse ment of state-wideism. Rev Kilgore to His People. If you will allow me space in your paper, I will write a few lines to let inv'friends know where I am. I am at mv old home with my son-in-law and daughter. Mr. and Mrs. W.

"Behold, bring you glad tidings of great joy, which shall be unto all people." Reli gion was never designed to make pur pleasures less. I want the people to give one another nice presents on that day and think on Christ who gave his life to save the world, and we should keep Christmas just as sacred as Sun day, and not spend it in drinking and gamming, i win tnanK all of my friends for any present that they may send me on that day, even if it is not worth more than a nickle, and your name so I will know who to thank. A few words to Tracy City and Lankfordtown: I want to know how the young converts are holding out and if Rev. John McBride is still there.

It is the time when we should all lie hap pier than at any other time. Xmas time is when we should set all our cares and worries aside and lie as hap py and joyful as did the shepherds when they heard the glad news that the long expected Messiah was born. We have the same right to rejoice in the birth of Christ as they did, because He is the same to us as He was to them. When Xmas approaches we should begin to plan how to makt oth ers happy. Every year there are hun dreds of poor children who do not ac tually know what Santa (Hans moans, and the Xmas dinners of hundreds does not consist of anything but bread, and not much of that. Now, this year let's see how many poor and destitute people we can help by giving them a nice present or two. A bag of candy, toy pistol, knife or some fruit will make any boy happy, and you too, if it is given with the right spirit, and a doll, work box, story book, or tea set will be some nice things to give to some poor girl. They. don't cost much. If you don't want to buy them, maylw some of your children have a lot of old toys that they never play with. Wouldn't it be putting them to a good use if they are given to some jioor child who never has a chance to hang his stockings up on Xmas. If you have an old shawl that yon never wear, it would be a good gift for some poor woman. A warm pair of mittens will bring a joyful smile to her face. An old jacket that you have 'discarded will be welcome. A fur cap will be nice to give to some destitute man or boy. An old overcoat that your hus band has thrown down will be an ex cellent gift. Dear friends, we can all do something for the friendless and needy on Xmas, if no other time.. These little things don't cost much. If you can'tbuy them there is always some articles around our homes that we dont' need and they will be deeply appreciated by any poor person. Gath er up a nice basketful of your Xmas dinner, and give it to the children of your town, who will not have anything at all for their Xmas dinner but meat and bread. Dear friends, let us all see bow much good we can do this Xmas toward making others happy. Put your charity talents to work. There is plenty of territory to work. Christ says: "in as mucn as ye nave done it unto one of the least of these, ye have also done it unto me. By mak ing gome other poor mortals hapny we will make ourselves happy. Young men, old men, boys and all, let me whisper something in your ears, Leave your Xmas toddy off this time.' If you have any whiskey circulars or order blanks for getting your whiskey use them to start your hres in your stoves some morning, rather than to get the stuff to start these ruinous fires in side your body. Take the money that you will spend for whiskey and buy some useful things and give to those who will not have anything on Xmas morning. Buy a basket of provisions and send it down to widow so-and-so, If you celebrate Xmas, do it in a de cent way. Christ being born into the world does not call for you to get drunk and raise cain all around. Let the stuff alone. ' Curtis Ellison returned from Dora Monday where he has been visiting friends.

In fact you cannot cure dyspepsia or indigestion that way, but rather you must auu strength to the weak stomach by taking something that will dget the food which the stomach cannot digest. Kodol is the only thing known today that will do this, for Kodol is inaue oi natural ui gestive juices found in a healthy stom ach, and it digests all food completely. Kodol is pleasant to take, and is guar anteed to give relief in any case of stomach trouble. Sold by J. W. Simpson, Jasper, Tenn. Beat weekly paper in tho United StUM: The Chattanooga Weekly News.
