Prof. J. M. Hancock Withdraws
A large number of people will
regret to learn that Prof. Han
cock has withdrawn from the

Sentinel, dated July 16, he says:
"Owing to a recent change in
the nianage;nent of the school
in which I am employed, so
nuch work has been placed on
me that it will be impossible for
me to represent the county in

withdraw from the race, but
wish to most sincerely thank
ny iany friends for the inter

Reception to Mr. and Mrs. Geo,
R. Hendricks
The attractive home of Mrs.
J. Troup Partridge was a bower
of loveliness Wednesday after
noon, when she was "at home"
in honor of her sister, Mrs. Geo.
Robert Hendricks.
The decorations were simple
but effective; quantities of trail
ing ivy, palms, ferns and nas
turtiums being artistically ar
ranged, forming a background
for the handsomely gowned wo
men that thronged the parlors
from 5 to 7 o'clock. Receiving
with Mrs. Hendricks and Mrs.
Partridge were Mrs. Larry C.
Thornley and Miss Elinor
After registering in the guest
book, refreshments were served
by Mrs. G. F. Kirby and Mis. S.
B. Johnson. On the dainty
hand painted plates was placed
angel ford cake, while a grace
ful border of nasturtiums form
ed a pretty setting for the
mound of nesselrode cream.
Miss Mattie Findlay presided
over the punch bowl.
Mrs. Hendricks' petite loveli
ness was enhanced with an
elaborate lingerie gown, the
flimy lace being caught with a
sunburst of diamonds, and wear
ing a large black picture hat,
while the soft draperies of em
broidered acru crepon with
touches of myrtle gre. n messa
line, brought into perfection the
graceful lines of the slender

A Divided Kingdom.
Mr. Editor:--While reading
and studying about the condi
tion of our government, both
State and national, and the
general condition of her citizens
it is enough to cause one to
tremble knowing that desola
tion must take place, because
Christ said every Kingdom di
vided ag ainst itself is brought
t~o desolation. Luke 11-17.
And we know his word is
true for he said heaven and
earth shall pass away but my
words shall not pass away.
This has been fulfilled once to
our nation, when a half a cen
tury ago t he n irth and south
divided and was brought to
desolation, poverty and ruin.
But God again hats blessed us to
be a prosperouIs and wealthy
nation, and w -have every
thing that hem t could wish.
But we are like the lepers that
were cleansed, have not given
God the glory. Luke.17: 12-19.
WeT boast of our shrewd and
energetic spirit being the cause
of our wealth, but Paul said I
have planted. Apollos watered
but God gave the increase.
Cor. :3: 6.
If we could only realize th at
God gives us all we have and
are. we would be happy in this
world. People, he said. sell
that ye have and give alms.
Provide yourselves bags which
wax not old, a treasure in the
heavens that fail not, where no
thief approacheth neither moth
So here we are today a nar
row, selfish, jealous-hearted
people, without natural affec
tion. truce breakers, hateful
and hating one another. Di
Ivided on politics. Divided on
religious matters, almost to
i.n in the hill. Let us begin to
exartiltie ourselves and get rig)
with God that we may. escal
wheft the overflowing scours
comei. We know these thing
ought not to be, but we say ti
other fellow is to blame all th
time and never stop to se
whether we ourselves ai
murderers, drunkards, thievec
liars. tattlers or what. If w
find ourselves in this conditio
we must be born again then w
will love our enemies and bles
them which curse us and pra
for them which despitefully us
us. Then it would be a littl
heaven on earth.
I will close by saying "Uniteo
we stand, divided we fall."

A Beautdful Service.
At the Presbyterian churci
last Sunday afternoon Rev. J
C. Baily, Jr., was installed a
pastor. The services wer
simple, yet beautiful and i
pressive. A committee ha'
been appointed by the Piedmon
Presbytery to conduct thee

delivered one of the strongest
and most impressive charges to
the new pastor as to his duties
and obligations ever heard.
The Rev. C. D. Waler charged
the church and it would have
been helpful to many who were
absent to have heard It.
This closed the service and the
benediction was pronounced by
the -new pastor, Rev. J. C.
Bailey, Jr., Mr. Bailey is a
strong preacher and the church
at this place is to be congratu
lated in securing him as its
-pastor. He has been pastor at
Liberty, where he lives, for
several years and also at Central
and Carmel.
He will preach at this place
each first Sunday at 11 o'clock

A Near Fire
A near fire occurred on Mon
day night at the home of Mr. M1
F. Retr, and the fact that the
house was not totally destroyed
is indeed remarkable. The elec
tric lights not being on, a can
dle was placed on the mantel
piece in the front hall upon the
household's retiring~ for the night
Upon arising the next morning,
it was discovered that the can
dle had during the night ignited
the mantel scarf, which in turn
fired a large picture on the wall
just above, partly destroying it.
Bits of the scarf scorched the
floor where they fell. That the
fire voluntarily extinguished it
self and did no serious damage
is certainly a miraolo,
rer baata a Oblaren.
