Pumpkintown News t t 'Christmas likker" is getting ripe in Pumpkintown. I think e it is a shame to make the birth- c day of the Prince of Peace a t time of drunkeness, fighting, cursing and all other sorts of rot- . tenness. In fact, the real mean ing of the day seems to be lost in some places. 'here are boys and girls right here in Pickens I county who have not the slight est idea of what the real mean ing of the word Christmas i?. I can tell you why: Cursing, swearing, drinking, shooting, yelling and'everything else that resembles the lower regions do not in any way suggest the Birthday of the Christ. B.F. Hendricks left here Sun day for Cedar Mountain, N. C. where he will attend Eagle's Normal Musical Institdte,which began a sixty-day session there MIondav. This is the third time M r. Hendricks has crossed the Blue Ridge to attend Prof. Eag le's school. He is making rapid strides tow'ail the mastery of music, and j(ids fair to become one of the South's many effici ent music, teachers, in. a few years. When he gets his "'sheep skii," we hope Mr. Hendricks will come back to Pumpkinto wn and give us a big dose of miusi cal enthusiasm. We had quite a storm :n1d somec high water here last F~ri day night. Some of the oldest people around here say that the Oolenoy was higher Saturday morning than it has been in many years. Mr. Galbreath wvho lived here the last two years, has moved to the cottonnmill at Pickens. re Se61miC6 SOur aim is to make this store an ideal place in which to buy your shoes.

A Great Convention The Baptist state conyention, held in Greenville last week,was perhaps the greatest meeting ever held by that body. Th( meeting was largely attended, The entertainment was all tha could be desired. The opening address by Dr, Z. T. Cody, the address on mis. sions by Dr. J. E. White Sun day evening and the address b3 Dr. D. M. Rarnsay on educatiot were among the greatest ad dresses ever heard by this or an other convention. Other speech 3 es were good, but these stan out as epoch-making speeches The influence will continue wit) us as long as memory hold good.
