MY NATIVE LAND.
(Sir Walter Scott.)
Breathes there the man with soul so
dead, # >
Who never to himself hath said;
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him
As home his footsteps he hath turn
From wandering on a foreign
If such there breathe, go mark him
For him no minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, pround his
Boundless his wealth as wish can
Despite those titles, power and pelf,
The wretch, concentered all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And doubly dying, shall go down
To vile the dust from whence he
Unwept, unhonored, and unsung.

of friends, being an unusually sweet
spirited girl. i
Her body was taken to Carbonton!
Thursday afternoon for burial by the |
side of her father, who died five years j
ago. The service was conducted from
the Methodist church at that .place
by her pastor, Rev. O. I. Hinson.

Some farmers are hauling guano
from the towns to their farms in the
country, while others are hauling
cross ties, cedar logs and lumber from
the country to the towns. It is a busy
scene in some of these places to watch
the many wagons coming and going
loaded down with something that pays
them money and something that they
have to pay for. It is a busy time with
the farmers in Chatham now.
