SEQUACHEE, TENN., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1920 NO 1 f- Sunday Picks All-Bible Foot-Ball Team Bars Goliath Because He Needs Team Work and Giant Was Enemy Here's an all-Bible football team which Billy Sunday picked for Tech men in Jacksonville: "Let's see," said Billy, "I'm going to pick my center first. Samson is, without the shadow of a doubt, the man for center. A guy who could pull down the pillars of the temple would be hard to get through. "The best man for quarter back is Solomon, the wisest gink of history. He would of course call the signals on the team. "My two halfbacks are Jona than and David. They were great team worners and had much speed." Billy had in mind a man for fullback, , but couldn't think of his name right off the bat. "He would be a bearcat for fullback." said Billy, "because when he went out to kill a bear he would kill him by falling on him. Give me that Bible again. Ma." And after a five-minute search Billy found what he was looking for. His name was Beniah," saidBiir. "That's the bird I 'want for fullback." . At tackles Billy placed Jacob and Esau, and at guards GiJeon ' and Nehemiah, the latter being the man who built the walla of ! Jerusalem. For the ends he ' chose Daniel and Joseph. 1 "Why did you leave Goliath 'off your team?" he was asked. 4'I am picking a gang for team work," replied- Billy. "That guy belonged to the enemy." Billy's all-star Old Testament team follows: Samson, center. Daniel, end. Joseph, end. Gideon, guard. Nehemiah, guard. Jacob, tackle. Esau, tackle. Solomon, quarteiback. David, halfback. Jonathan, halfback. Beniah,' fullback. The Clements Paper Co.. Nash ville, favors us with a handsome Christmas card with the season's greetings.

Paducah, Ky A joke in the statute that is County Judge Lang's view of the law prohibit ing a man from marrying his mother-in-law. So he dismissed Mr. and Mrs. Walter Thornton, arrested last week on the charge of violating the Kentucky statute forbidding such marriages and providing a a fine of from $500 to $5,000 and a prison sentence unless termin ated. "Besides," the judge said. "Thornton's divorced wife, now his daughter-in-law, has mar ried again; and how can one daughter furnish her mother with two "legal" sons-in-law?" County Attorney Wickhffe will carry the case to the highest court. "Law is law. Once a mother-in-law always a mother-in-law." he said, "I will tane the case before the grand jury." Judge Lang was sitting only as an examining court." Judge Lang's opinion was lengthy. He concluded by stat ing: ' The incongruity of this statute is manifest and it would not stand the test of the higher courts, nor before the court of public opinion." He advised the defendants, however, that they might; reme dy the tangle by remarrying in a state where the laws were not so stringent. This they indicat ed they would do if further legal procedure is attempted. Thornton's former wife, who is trying to regain possession of their child, married Walter Woods, an I. C. shopman, the day the decree was issued, it has been learned. "Mother's welcome to Wal ter," she said recently. I had to divorce him because he would not support me and ran around with other women. Maybe she can maKe him toe the mark." The News arrangement with the Progressive Farmer gives you both papers one year each for $2.

Blithe a a child at play, keeping his holiday, Welcome him back from the snow peak and plain. Up with the holly bough green from the winter's brow, Lock up your ledgers and cares for the day; Out to the forest go, gather the mistletoe, Old and young, rich and poor, up and away. Up with the holly boughs, ay, and the laurel now; In with the yule log and brighten the hearth; Quick! here he is again, come with his joyous train, Laughter and music and friendship and mirth. Up with the holly boughs, high in each manor house, Garnish the antlers that hang in the hall. Yes, and the "neck" of corn with a gay wreath adorn, Rich asHhe bloom on the cottager's wall. Wealth has its duties now, Christian, you will allow; Think, then, ye rich, whilst your tables are spread, Think of the wretched ones, Poverty's stricken sons, Weeping whilst children are asking for bread. Ring out, ye merry bells!, ring till your music swells Out o'er the mountain, and far on the main; Ring till those cheerless ones catch up your merry tones, Singing, "Come, Christmas, again and again." m Jaspe r Special to the News Fine weather and cotton pick ers are rushing to get remaining cotton before bad weather.

MACON, GA. Special to the News. Dear editor, please give me space in the columns of the good old News for a few dots as to what this part of the world is doing. Times are getting a little better here. The cotton mills ran 6 days last week but will run only three or four days this and next week, but af ter Jan. 1 they will run full time. This will be a great benefit as the people heed work these days to live but everything is getting cheaper ev ery day, for gingham that sold here at40o per yard is now lbo per yard. It is raining here, a very cold ram, and I think it will be snowing by to morrow. We had a big tire here today. It burned a half block on Second St. and Broad tray, and one of the build ings was the railway express office. I do not know just what was the damage. The fire department had six fire engines and believe me they were sure throwing some water. 1 was sure sorry to hear of Uncle Ben Rogers lieing sick to long and Uncle Chaudoin being so feeble. The Case-Fowler Timber Co. is going to shut down Christmas for a week and will do some repair work on their mill. They have 350 ' can of logs stored on the yard so it look- like work to me. They get from 15 to 20 cars a day. Little Ephie McClanahan is get ting ad fat asja pig since recovering from a fall when he fractured his skull.
