- XMAS EXERCISES
At Owen Church Well Attended
in Spite' of Inclement
Weather.
In spite' of the very inclement
weather, Owen CbnrcU was nearly fill
ed with people who came to witness
the Christmas program Riven by the
children of the Sunday School Friday
night, under charge of Miss Oraoe
Thomas. The decorations were very
liretty, holly was used Javishly.Cbrist
jnas bells hung over the platform, and
211 was in harmony with the spirit of
the season.
The children occupied three seats on
the right side of the platform, while
upon the right was erected a "Christ
mas Log Cabin", from which Santa
Claus appeared later in the evening,
bringing with him gifts for the
"good" children of the Sunday School,
and as all Sunday School children are
good, none were forgotten. The
'Christmas Log Cubin" was made of
slats, covered with paper painted , to
represent the "real thing", and cover
ed with cotton batting "snow".
The exercises opened with prayer by
Rev. G. O. Ganuoway, after which
the song. "Hail, the Sun of Right
eousness", was nicely rendered by the
children. Then followed recitations
by a couple of the smallest members of
the Sunday School, Marie Smith and
Lneile Fagg; and the recitation,
"Happy Christmas", in which four
teen boys and girls appeared. The
wng, "Loving Little Jesus", was act
ed in pantomime by three little eirls,
while the words were softly sung. Re
citations by Gladys Fagg and Robert
Blanton were next in order, followed
by the song, ""Wherever There is Glad
ness", by the chidreu, and Elizabeth
Deukins recited. A drill by seven
girls came next and recitations bv Jes
sie Oiveus, Dora Pryor, Briddie Mar
tin, Robert Barnett and Fannie Cop- '
linger, after which "Loving Hearts
for Jesus" was prettily rendered by six
girls The children followed with a
chorus, "A Merry Chime," after
which Eliza Martin and Jacob Blnntou
recited. "The Calendar for Decem
ber", by ill, who appeared in succes
sion until the entire month was repre
sented upon the stage, was an excel
lent feature. Recitations bv Sallie
Martin, Cbas. Fultz, Lena Lasater,
Harvey Smith and Lester Smith clos
ed the program, which had to be
somewhat curtailed on account of the
absence of several of the children.
Mr. W. S. Pryor, who had acted as
Master of Ceremonies, after expressing
his belief in "Santa Clans", or the
spirit of. love which infests, or should
infest the Christmastide, ann)unced
thr.t. Saiita was in Sequachee, and not
only fn Sequachee but in Owen
Church, and that he would presently
make himself known. Immediately
after Santa appeared from the top of
the chimney of the "Log Cabin", and
after a few looks around to see who
was there, descended' and emerged
from the "Cabin" bringing with him
boxes filled with presents for the mem
bers of the Sunday School, which were
distributed as quickly as possible by
Santa, aided by several young ladies
and children. With this the evening's
entertainment closed.
Miss Grace Thomas, who is Organ
ist at Owen Church, and has bud en
tire charge of arranging the program
anl training the children, des-rves
great credit for her efforts. The child
ren Rhowed careful training and all
rendered their parts well. About $17
was raise by the Sunday School, with
which wr.s purchased presents for all
the members of the Sunday School,
each person receiving a sack of candies
and frnits, besides another gift suited
to their age.
A New Year's Card
Now what is here?
A word of cheer
To herald in another year:
May all its days be free of blame
A little nobler than your aim;
May all its labors be confest
A little better than your best,
And all the joys within its scope
A little brighter than your hope;
And may each year be found, when
past,
A little dearer than the last.
Arthur Guiterman in Woman's Home
Companion for January.

GETTING READY
For Starting Up Work Making
Handles at Handle Works
Next Week.
Everything is looking favorable for
resumption of work at the Handle
Works next week, making bandies.
The long liiie of lathes have been prac
tically set np, and belted, and in fact,
power has been put on to test engine,
shaft and majhines. The grinding and
polishing machines are being set up
and shaft for them is in position. The
busting" machinery, and other saws
are being put ia place by other work
men. The chain conveyer for saw dust
has arrived and will be put in this
week. This conveys the saw-dust to
engine rootu to a huge bin with brick
walls convenient to furnaces. The
trough in main building, through
which this chain operates, was rut in
at the same time as concrete floor was
laid. The windows and doors are
about all in. These are large, giving
plenty of light, and room for going 'in
and out with stock. The heating sys
tem is being installed also, pipes being
placed on iron racks suspended from
overhead. Something over a mile of
iron pipe w.'ll be used iu steam heat
ing the bnilding. Machines are being
belted up ready for use, and every
thing begins to look like business. A
tins combination cut-off and rip-saw
for'the box-making department was re
ceived last week. The upright engine
for driving dynamo has been installed,
except pipe fitting, and dynamo is
here ready for installation. It is pro
posed to overhaul the old shipping
room and office building to render it
uniform with new buildings and more
commodious.
Savings Department
In connection with our general and commercial banking depart
ment we have decided to open a new department which will lie known
as our Savings Department.
This department will be rim entirely separate from the other de
partments of the bank and on the same principle as regular Savings
Jianks.
This gives us three departments:
First The General or Commercial Hanking:.
Second Certificates of Deposit.
Third Savings Department.
Deposits taken from one dollar up it's not the amount but the
slart that counts.
