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-
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

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. L. Ro
gers. I feel like I was at home and
want my friends to come'and see me
for the weather is bad, and I can't
come to see you, and I want yon to
write me at Victoria, Tenn. I will
get your letters. Christmas is nearly
here and I want to give you two "chap
ters in the New Testament, 2nd Math
ew and 2nd Luke, "Where is he thai
is born king of the Jews, for I have
seen his star in the east." "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. Are Cousin Lafayette Kilgore,
Cousin George Kilgore and Alexander
Layne still there, or have they taken
them each a wife and rnn away to Ok
lahoma. Is John Goodston, of Shad
rick Hill living right and gone to rais
ing yellow-legged chickens. If so. all
right. I will attend to the chickens.
I would like to hear from "Cold
Wave" and Dugin, and to hear if they
have killed all the wild ;shoats. If so,
end for W. E. Kilgore, for he likes
back bones and spare ribs fully as well
as he does chickens.
The junior editor of the News has
been eating chicken for the last year
at Rev. Chadwick's and now he has
taken his baby and goue. God bless
the editor and his wife, and may they
live a long ana nappy life.

Christmas will soon be here. 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. '

but rather you must auu strength to

that will dget the food which the
stomach cannot digest. Kodol is the

this, for Kodol is inaue oi natural ui
