To the Editor of The Journal:- D. W., the little live-tear old sou of Mr. and Mrs. David l'orler of Goose Crrk township, died last Saturday morning with diphtheria. He had been lingeiing for some time, but up until Monday morning before his death was able lo be up and play around. And on that day the disease developed that caused his death. D. tt. was a bright little fellow, one whom all loved that knew him and his smiles will never be forgotten by them. An angel came with loving care and from earth to heaven this little one conveyed. A father and mother, two brothers and two sisters and oiher relatives and friends are left to mourn the loss of this dear little boy. But D. V. has now join ed hands in the spiritual world and is now resting in the sunlight of his loving Saviour. The little bodv was laid to rest in Philadelphia cemetery Sunday morning. A precious one from us has gone. A voice we loved is still. A place is vacant in his home. Which can never be filled. Safe in the arms of Jesus, fafe on his gentle breast. There by his love ever shadowed, Sweetly my soul shall rest. A. Friend. svvoitls of Honor. (From The Youth's Companion.) Although Congress save General (Visiting a ole of Ihanks and ihe permanent rank of general, il decided not to present him with a beautiful and cosily sword ol honor. That was not precisely a slight, for. though in the hurst of national exultation that followed the batlle of Manila. Con gitss voted a sword to Admiral Dewey, ii las not been in the habit of honoring all its victorious com manders in ihai way. Nieiher Gen eral Grant nor General Sherman got swords from Congress, although they ot them from several cities and companies ot private citizens who w i' heil to do t hem honor. Il is on the whole more common for cities than Slates to choose this method ol recognizing high military distinction; thai perhaps is because mil ions have rerlain highly prized decoration to bestow, whereas grate ful cities have not. And so it falls on I that, although General Pershing did not get a gold-mounted sword from his own country, he will not have to do without one: for the City of London has given hi in a very hand some blade, decorated as to the han dle with diamonds and rubies, and bearing on one side- the figure of Britannia and on the other that nT Liberty, together with ihe arms both of London and of the United Stales. Paris has similarly honored the three marshals of France. Koch, .loffre and Peialu. If we mnv Judj.

Covington, who works for Mr. Horace Neal. was driving a load of cotton from the field the other day. and Ledbetter was tiding on the wag on with him. A sheet of cotton, eith er fell or was kicked off; and Flncher, following the wagon, picked It up. and carried it to his house. When the of ficers learned of the colton being nilssed. they went to Enoch's house, where thev found the precious staple divided into two piles. It Is their opinion that Covington and Ledbetter kicked the cotton off the wagon for Enoch to pick up. with the intention of later dividing it among themselves. However.

The Monroe High School defeated the Concord High School In a clean and interesting game of foot-ball on the local gridiron last Tuesday after noon by the score of 13 to tt. Monroe won the toss up. and the game opened when Concord kicked olf to Russell on (he forty yard line, who returned the ball about ten yards. In the first few ininules of play, by constant plunges and enn runs the ball was rapidly advanced to Concord's three yard line, and Mon roe netted its first score when Red wine carried Ihe ball over the goal line for a touchdown. Plyler failed to kick goal. The visitors opened their offensive by attempting several line plunges, but failed to gain, finding the Monroe line to he aljnosl impregnable. Nu merous forward passes were then at tejnpied. bin these were made incom plete by the brilliant work of Mon roe's ends and back field. Monroe later scored alter advancing the ball near Concord's goal. English carried it over and kicked goal. The Monroe goal was never threat ened. The efficient work of the en tire line constantly held the visitors for downs, allowing them only one first down during the entire game. Redwine, Plyler and Fairley were the principal ground gainers for the lo cals, although the entire team played very creditable ball. Monroe suffered the loss of Half-back Wray, who was unable to participate in this game on account of an injured knee which he received In the game with Charlotte High School last Friday. For Concord, the work of Gillon and Dellinger featured. The visitors also suffered the loss of left guard Pounds, who was forced to retire on account of a broken arm. Method i-t t tin lib .Notice.
