Pacre Thrw % f Expect Crowd at Horseshoe On Saturday (Continued from Page 1) concluded to pursue with the force he brought to his assistance. Morgan led the British in a chase to the Yad kin and Greene brought his army from Cheraw up the Catawba, and the united forces retreated to Guilford court house, chased by Cornwallis. They continued until Cornwallis was checked by the crossing at the Dan, and then as Cornwallis turned south to Pittsboro, Greene returned to Guil ford, where he was met again by Cornwallis. Greene was not victor ious enough at Guilford to claim that he had won a battle, but he did wipe out so much of Conwallis’s army that it again retreated for the south. Passing down the Deep river from the scene of action Cornwallis led his disheartened army down the valley, at Sandy creek turning to cut across the bend to the Gulf, passing not far north of the Horseshoe. Greene fol lowed, and at Ramsey’s mill, in Lee county, he was almost able to over take the British, reaching the river: JAMES MacNEILL JOHNSON Resent Alfred Moore Chijpter D. A. R, of Moore Countv.

The winter calendar of the regular services in the church is as follows: Sunday Worship and sermon, 10:30. Bible School, 11:45. Junior Christian Endeavor, 4:30. Senior Christian Endeavor, 7:30. W'ednesday. The Open Forum, 7:30. The public is cordially invited to at tend all these services. Rev. Elmer Willis Seri delivered a thought provoking sermon on the subject, “Can We Live Together?’* The following is quoted from his address: “Jesus Christ is the formula for social harmony. Can we live togeth er? Yes, if we agree to practice the fundamentals of life together. There is no use of developing fine spun so cial theories. There is one practice which is sufficient and that is Chris tianity. “What is Christianity? Christian ity is the simplest remedy for what ails humanity because Chrstianity is Christ-like living or Christ living. Christianity is unselfishness. “There is only one basic thing the matter with mankind. It is selfish ness. And the pity of it is selfishness never gains an enduring good. But unselfishness gains the enduring goods. All things are added when unselfishness is first. “Unselfishness in an individual makes itself felt in society. Men can live together by emphasizing and ob serving a few essentials as individ uals, namely, Truth, Surrender of Personal Liberty and the Prohibi tions.” During the absence of the pastor, Miss Ruth Sergeant will take charge of the services. Mr Gifford will ren der a solo next Sunday. Wednesday evening was a busy one at the church. At six o’clock the teachers and officers of the Sunday School met for supper and a business meeting. After which the Open Forum was conducted by Miss Ser geant. Immediately following this was the business meeting of the Chistian Endeavor Society. Then came choir rehearsal. The directors of the Ladies’ Aid Society will hold a business meeting at the home of Mrs. F. W. Van Camp's at 7:30 p. m., Monday, November 12. Miss Lucille Eifort, the superin tendent of Welfare for Moore County will address the meeting of the La dies’ Aid Society at 2:30 Wednesday afternoon, November 14th. The attendance at the Bible School broke all records of the past few months. Mrs. Judith Cranford has been appointed superintendent of the Home Department. Garland Pierce will be the leader of the C. E. next Sunday evening on the subject, “What is Being Done For and Against World Peace?” Robert Cran dall will be the leader of the Junior C. E. on the subject. “Book Fiends.” ville as the country was too barren to subsist two armies and Green turn ed west, passing close by the Horse shoe, out north of Pinehurst, near Jackson’s Springs, and down in to South Carolina where he fought the battles of Camden, Ninety-six and others, and finally after a bitter cam paign pushed the British out of South Carolina. Cornwallis was chased north to surrender to Washington in the fall at Yorktown, and the war was practically wound up. In fact it was finished at Guilford where Corn wallis began his retreat south down Deep River, for he was never able to get his army together again in shape to present a formidable offensive cam paign, nor to offer to his various de pendencies any support to enable them to defend themselves against Greene or other colonial organiza tions. Deep River at the battle of the Ala mance was the beginning of the rev- oluton as Deep River at Guilford, and down the river in the chase of Greene after the fleeing Cornwallis, was the breaking of the great contest in fa vor of the colonies. . Surrounded on all sides, east, west, north and south by country the contending armies tramped over and over, the Deep Riv er valley, and especially the Horse shoe section is deserving of any mon uments it gets, and the Daughters of the Revolution have ample ground for their attention to this section. With the weather man arranging for good weather and all things work ing together for good it looks like a big turnout at the Horseshoe on Sat urday morning. The program begins at 11 o’clock, and dinner follows whenever each individual group opens its baskets. Room in the Horseshoe bend for everybody and they are all expected. M?S. J. TALBOT JOHNSON I Vice Regent Alfred Moore Chapter D. A. R. of Moore County FATHER OF DR. MILLIKEN DIES IN PITTSBORO. Poet of the Occasion. John Milliken, father of Dr. J. S. Milliken of Southern Pines, died at his home in Pittsboro Tuesday. He had been ill only a few days. Mr. Milliken had lived in Pittsboro most of his life. In addition to his son. Dr. Milliken, I — Mr. Milliken is survived by his wife i as they crossed. But Greene was ■ in Pittsboro, a sister in Sanford and ! afraid to follow through the sandy ; two brothers. He was buried in Buf- I country down the river to Fayette- falo Cemetery last Wednesday. ) {The Latest Figures i from Tuesday’s Election u tt n ♦♦ H u As the last page of The Pilot is . about to be put on the press the fig- I ures from the elections of Tuesday show that North Carolina has gone for Hoover by about 46,358 votes. Gardner appears to have carried the State by about 68,000 votes. Bul- winkle and Weaver seem to have been defeated for Congress by their Re publican opponents. The margins are narrow, but evidently sufficient. In Congress it looks as if the Re publicans will have 55 Senators, the Democrats the balance except one Labor farmer victor. An increased number of members of the lower house in Congress will he returned from the Southern states, and the Re publicans will have a comfortable working majority in both branches. In the popular vote Hoover wins over Smith by about five and a half million in a total of over thirty-two millions. Hoover had about 60 per cent of the vote, or not far from what the Literary Digest predicted. MRS. N. S. HURD MRS. L. L. BIDDLE announce the opening of an AimODE SHOP November 15th Pinehurst, N. C.

While, in the majority of busi nesses, the tax bill is one of the great est single items of overhead, business men §jive far less thought and con sideration to this expense than to other, and often smaller, expenditures which they control directly. According to an article in the Tax Digest, approximately one-sixth of our national income now goes to pay the cost of government. Three years ago, in 1925, one-eighth of our na tional income was used for this pur pose. And before the war taxes took but one-sixteenth. Governmental activities and main tenance in general are becoming steadily more expensive with little sign of improvement. In spite of federal economies, the costs of State, ounty and cit ygovernments have so increased that the average citizen is carrying a greater burden than ever before. The business man should realize that one-sixth of his working time belongs to the tax collector under ex isting conditions. Ever sixth automo bile, every sixth kilowatt of electric- I ity, every sixth bushel of wheat pro- ' duced goes to the tax office. If we are to have reduction, we : must have public interest that exam ines and controls expenditures. A lax public consciousness results in politi- al extravagance and waste that must leave its mark on personal and gen eral prosperity. I NORTH CAROLINA FREE FROM BOVINE TUBERCULOSIS North Carolina is now free from bovine tuberculosis, being the first State in the Union to achieve this distinction, it was announced by Com- mssioner of Agriculture William A. Graham tonight. Papers covering the list of the one hundred counties of the State having completed the work have been fowarded to Washington and official accreditation is expected to follow shortly. The work was started under the late Major Graham in 1918 and has been steadily in progress since that time, under the direction of Dr. Wil liam Moore, State Veterinarian. The present Commissioner of Agriculture, a son of Major Graham, has given the work his hearty co-operation and has co-operated in securing the county aid I necessary to push it to a successful I conclusion. “I am highly gratified * that this distinction has come to North Carolina,” he said “All the other states are now trailing North Caro lina whose nearest rival has only about half completed the work neces sary to secure full accreditation.” AfflOtNCENEIIT The White Mountain Photo Shop Is now open for the winter season with a complete line of post cards, local views, greeting cards, pottery, novelties, gift goods, hand carved picture frames and mirrors.
