Brethering and Friend.: -
Believing that we all realize the
great need of a revival of pure re
ligion among all denominations in
our midst, and among all classes;
and beholding as we do, the wreck
age and ruin being wrought among
us every day by sin of every de
gree. I, therefore, in the name of
our Heavenly Father, the immor
tal souls of men, of home and of
the highest interest of our com
monwealth; beg that we wipe out
all lines of distinction, and lay a-
side every hinderance, and come
together as one man, to the help
of the lord against the mighty, and
work together as Christians for the
salvation of souIb and the glory of
the Master.
Under the leadership of Rev. W.
M. Leftwich, D. D. who will begin
a series of services next sunday Oct
1st. at 11:00 A.M. at the Metho
dist Church. Doctor Lcftwicn is
one of the finest preachers, and
most earnest divines in the south,
this is indeed a rare opporunity
for us allto do something for the
moral and religious elevation of
our community.
May God help us all to do our
whole duty.
Of course, all ministers living
outside the town, will receive a
cordial welcome when they cau
come; but those who live in the
town, are hereby besought, and I
do plead with you Brethren and
fastors of Jour sister churches, be
present at every service, and help
in this great work.
Your Servant,
W. B. Pattie.
Pastor
Had you heard of it? or do you
know the man that wrote "Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay,"
"The Man in the
Moon," or "After the Ball is over?"
If you have not, if you owe M.
S. McDougal any thing, call and
sottle your account, and he will tell
you all about it, or write you a
new piece A Receipt.
Kronk keeps saddles, and sells
them cheap. Give him a call.

CROWSON.
Ed. Democrat:
Death haH again invaded our
neighborhood and left us to mourn
the loss of another friend. On last
thursday at 8:00 P.M. Thomas
Powers passed xuietly away, sur
rounded by friends and loved ouns.
He was a devout member of the
M. E. Church south, and was sixty
five years of age. For many years
he was an invalid, and his suffer
ings were borne with christian for
titude. Uncle Tommie has gone from
our midst. His eyes are closed, his
lips are sealed, his aged hands are
folded upon his breast, and he
sleeps his last long sleep on the
hill side.
When the spring comes, the oak
and maple will put on their green
garniture again, the flowers will
unfold their many-tinted beauties
to the sun, and th5 willow will go
on sighing to the end; but . his
heavy eye-lids will never lift again
that his eyes may brighten at the
sight of beauty, or moist at the
sound of a sigh.
He lies shrouded in death's cold
embrace, but is that the end? Does
life end at the grave? We believe
"ther is a realm where the rainbow
never fades, where the beautiful
little stars will be spread out before
us like the islands that slumber on
the ocean; and where the beautiful
beings that pass before us like vis
ions, will stay in our presence for
ever.
Kind words, friendly smiles,
thoughtful actions and generous
deeds, marked the every day life of
our departed friend.
He has left a noble example for
the emulation of those who re
main. He leaves a noble wife and
-cvrral childn-n who have our sin-i-re
sy pnthy in their bercaw
ment and sorrow.
A Friend.

W. C. Spencc, W. T. Nixon, W.
R. Smith. J. M. Gilmorc, Judge J.
A. Simms, of our town, Capt. J. B.
Bond, of Summertown, and G. T.
Hughes of Columbia, came to see us
Tuesday morning. Capt. Bond
nd G. T. Hughes made interesting
talks to the students. We appre
ciated their visit and trust they
will come again.
J. C. Stewart, J. M. Gilmore, J-
M. Alfo'd, Polk Comer, and Bro.
Paris Simms were with us Thurs
day morning. Bro. Simms opened
school for us.
The visitors volutecred to say
many pleasant things about the
school, its discipline, and its meth
od of imparting instruction.
One man said the children could
not help learning if they wanted
to. We thank them for their en
couraging presence and for their
enthusiastic words.
More students have entered and
there are others on the road. Let
every body come and see us.
W. T. Chafin, prin.
A proverbial "quill driver" gets
off the following, and from the
tone of his expression, it is reason
able to suppose that he has made a
miserable mistake, and is trying
to vent his "spleen" by hurling
bitter epithets at the fair name of
lovely woman.
"Women are wise on sudden,
and fools on rflection.
Women laugh when they can.
and weep when they please.
A follish woman is known by
her finerey.
A melon and a woman is hard
to choose.
A bag of flea's is easier to watch
than one woman.
A young wife is an old man's
post horee to the grave.
A widow is as dangerous as a
horse that has cast its rider.
A gossipping woman talks about
every body, and every body talks
about her.
Who takes an eel by the tail,
or a woman at her word, holds
nothing.
A house full of daughters, is a
cellar full of sour beer.
A deaf husband and a blind wife
make a happy couple.
One hair of a maiden's herd
pulls harder than ten yoke of oxen
Maidens want nothing lut hus
bands-then want everything."
