Rev. R. H. Willis, presiding elder
of the Fayetteville district, preached
two sermons in Siler City Sunday,
that received only the most favorable
comment. At the morning service his
subject was Peace, using as his text,
"Thou shalt be a repairer of the
breach.” At the evening service his
text was, “Work out your own salva
tion with fear and trembling” from
which he developed the theme of re
ligion as a business.
We have received notice from The
Progressive Farmer and the Southern
Agriculturist that they cannot offer us
the combination much longer. Remem
ber at present you cai get our paper
and both The Farmer and Agricultur- -
ist for only $1.75 a year. Act quick
ly if you want them. The offer is 1
likely to be withdrawn any time. Tell
your neighbors about it and you
will be doing him, and ourselves both
to accommodation. Push it along.
•We have a letter from an admirer
of the paper who relates that he is
a reader and is well pleased with it.
At present he is not a subscriber, and
does not want us to think that he is
trying to steal it from us. He says
ne wants it and will pay us later if
we will send it. We are starting the
paper this week, and it does not mat
ter whether he pays or not .He is a
hard working farmer, has a large
family and is an honest citizen. We
admire him a great deal more than
we do the man that is able to pay
for it, stands around and tells the
folks that it is not worth a cuss ,and
yet be the first to read it every week.

O. I. Hinson, Pastor. I
Some people in North Carolina
have been charged with not having
sense enough to keep out of the rain.
That charge is not applicable to
Chatham county folks, especially on
Sunday when it comes to attending
Sunday school and church. Mr. J.* A.
Moody had placed a good supply of
dry wood in the Hickory Mountain
church and it was easy for the pastor
to get a good fire going, and the
church was soon good and warm. For
one whole hour, from 1 Oto 11 o’-
clock he had the church to himself,
and then one lone man came in, and
the fellowship was most pleasant.
But where were the ninety and nine?
The flock was scattered and the shep
herd needed helpers. In our Lord’s
mind there were ninety and nine that
safely lay in the shelter of the fold,
and only one was off on the mountains
wild and bare. .
The wise man said that he who re
fuses to plan by reason of the cold,
shall not reap in harvest time. But
the New Testament says we shall
