?a ounuay ocnooi union was

conducted devotional exercises
and after dinner Mr. Robert Rare
foot made an excellent Sunday
School address. About 500 peo

?A few days ago a cow on the
farm of .Mr. Alex. Braswell, of
Boon Ilill township, was seen
acting very strangely. It was
first thought that she might have
hydrophobia as she was frothing
and bleeding at the mouth. Re
fore they could catch the cow and
see what was the matter with her
one of the boys went into the
mule's stall and found the cow's
tongue in the feed trough with
the print of the mule's teeth on
it. The cow's and mule's stalls
adjoined and it is supposed that
the cow was trying to steal the
mule's feed through the cracks
when the mule decided to put an
end to it by biting off the cow's
?One of the best sermons we
have heard in sometime was de
livered in the Primitive Baptist
church here Sunday night by
Elder A. VV. Patterson,of States
boro, Ga. Besides being a man
of great natural ability Elder
Patterson is prepossessing in ap
pearance, being more than six
feet tall and weighing nearly 300
pounds. Elder Patterson's text
was from Proverbs 4: 18: "Hut
the path of the just is as the
shining light, that shineth more
and more unto the perfect day."
He handled his text with ability
preaching an able, logical and
impressive sermon. In his closing
words he made a strong appeal
to parents to live right before
their children and urged children
to be dutiful and live up to the
moral laws of God. At the close
of his sermon Elder Patterson
sang alone a touching and soul
cheeiing parting hymn. After
the benediction had been pro
nounced quite a number of those
present gathered around the able
minister and encouraged him in
his work with their kind words
and gifts. He has been preach
ing in North Carolina for several
weeks. He left Monday for his
home at Statesboro, Ga.

Run Out of Clayton.
James T. Pool has liv*?m1 tor t
sometime in a house belonging *
to Mr. Hardy Mitchell just back H
of the Robert-in Hotel, Clay ton, \
N. (J. It seems he did not pay his :
rent and for sometime Mr. ?
Mitchell had been trying to net *
him out of the house It is said \
he remarked recently that if Mr. t
Mitchell put him out the house j
would never do him any good. ^
One night last week about .'t ?
o'clock the house caught fire and '
burned down. Dr. Robertson's \
barn and stables were burned 1
also. He lost a lot of corn and j
fodder. \ horse and cow were .
scorched. A fat hog was injured. ?
The building was just eighteen .
feet from several stores and but t
for heroic efforts 011 the part of i
the people who gathered there \
the whole block would have been .
lost, l'ool was suspicioned and ?
on investigation it was found '
that he had packed up ready to '
leave the house. The shoes he |
wore the day before he had pack- \
ed in a trunk with other tilings .
and had a rope tied around the ,
Wednesday night of this week
a crowd of disguised men waited
011 him and threatened to hang
him. He hollowed and begged
j and prayed. He is a cripple and
has to walk with a crutch.
Finally they took him to the
depot and put him on the train
with money to pay his way and
i sent him off notifying him never
to return. He was postmastei
at Archer a few years ago and
| had to be removed ou account of
1 his dishonesty. When postmas
ter lie sold stamps everywhere he
could at reduced prices.
A Beautiful Home Wedding:.
On Wednesday afternoon, the
lSth inst., at Ilunn, N. C., in the

happily married. Mr Massengill
is a young and popular business
! man of Dunn, and Miss Wilson is
the beautiful and amiable daugh
ter of Mr. A. It. Wilson, postmas
ter at that progressive town.
The bride and groom were pre
I ceded to the parlor by Mr. New- 1
! berry and Miss Ora Wilson, sister
| of the bride, while the wedding
march sounded forth under the I
skilful touch of Miss Nettie
It was a quiet home wedding, |
only a few of the most intimate
friends of the family being pres- ,
ent. The ceremony was perform- (
ed by Rev. J. J. Harper,of Smith
field, in a beautiful and impres
sive manner. ,
Aft -r the ceremony the young (
couple left on the north bound 1
train 1 ir Richmond, Washington -
City and other places of interest, j
followed by the good byes and <
good wishes of a host of friends.
