About Decided to Go.
There will be a time when Caban
rus is to lose and Burke will gain a
good citizen. Mr. V A Kluttz, who
a week ago went to Morganton to
find a suitable location for his bee
and farming business has returned
and is greatly pleased with the adc
vantages shown him in that suction. '
He has not positively decided to
move, but says he will consider the
matter for a few weeks and that it
is very probable that he will go his
family with him.
While Cabarrus will regret to
give him up, it is consolation to
know that he will not forsake the
community for all times. He will
not purchase land at first, but will
rent for two years, and then if
pleased and succeeds, he will locate
two miles from Morganton perma
nently. Monday KiRht at I'attsrsons Mill.

As pastor of St. Andrews Evan

justice to the public at large, it be
comes my very unpleasant duty to
state that we, as a Lutheran con
gregation have no Sunday school in
St. Andrews church.
There is, however, a Sunday
school held in the church, but it is
a union school, and uses a Sunday
school literature published by David

from Lutheranism as daylight is

Prince, the big black horse formerly

city. On Friday last Prince was
put out to graze, and afterward took
sick. His complaint was of a seri

years, where he quietly passed away

where all good horses go. Dr. Grif
