THE DflNH DBPATCH -..." e> ^jUSSGHS sArB^jergas,.‘>~,t With the death of Major W. •A. Graham, State Commtarlon er of Agriculture, a life of eer ▼iee to th« State ended. Major Graham played aa important part ia the progress made ia north Carolina dorian the peat half ceatpry. He loved the agit 1 enltaral clam aad was ever on the alert la their interest la his peering the farmers of North CaroHna lost a true friend. -o—— President Coolidge. Henry Ford settled the annoying ques tion, “la he a Democrat or a Republican?" He nt least talks tike a Republican. The Hamlet jeweler who eloped with a minister's wife can now be clamed aa the man who robbed a preacher. The blbodhonnd has again demonstrated his ability aa a man trailer. In Davidson coun ty dogs brought Into use run down n negro who had attack ed a merchant and his wife In an attempt nt robbery. A bullet wound in the negroe’s head, inflicted by the white man ha attacked, proved that tha dogs did not lie in this par ticular case. New Year resolutions are now in order. Make them so ttroag that they will not break. A glance at the Roxboro Courier and the State dailies reminds os that an election •alley doesn't want to bo gov armor of North Carolina, he al ee wishes to relieve A. W. Mc Lean of the burden. Ban-tag a very few days. De cember has been as plsasaat as May. AN IDEAL CHRISTMAS Not in years, if ever, has a Christmas boon observed in a more aafo and aaaa manner in • and around Dana than that of - tbs ysar IMS. While the spirit of the season was very much in evideoc and Sants Clans was at his beat, tha day teemed mere like a Sunday that like the usual Christmas. There was very little evidence of intoxi cating beverages hereabouts aod y*t a good time waa had Tha manner in which Christ mas was observed here this year was in hasping with the origin of the world-wide holi day—the birth of the Prince of Peace. In a communication published elsewhere in today's paper n darkey at the ante bellunt type comma de the peo ple of th town for th# manner in which tha day wae efcbrat mL The people of thla section have made a pood start to wards the proper celebration of the birth of a world’* Sarlouk aad It la to be hoped that the Creator pleasure derived from the axprimcnt wflU load them to follow It up as the yean AN UNUSUAL YEAN Before the scat leeoe o^Tke Diepatch I* printed the year IMS win b# peat history and a now yoar will bars boon sober ed la.

The farmers and business men gen erally had been carrying a'bur densome load dace the “crash" af 1080 ud the good crape and high prices together served to lighten the burden. To me the expression of one farmer, it hag pat many people back on their feat. While it is impossible to foretell what die now year hold* in store, it is not likely dust It will be so generous in blessings as was 1088. Wt would not Uks to be classed as a peasImlat, but wa would wan tha farmers against taking toe great a chance as a result oi the good cotton crop produced this year. Again we would urge tog Importance of plant ing plenty of seres In food and food crops to supply the home and farm. The farmer who doe* this is fortifying himself against the worst if it comes. The fanner who does not i* gambling with all the odd? against him. o IS POETEAYBD IN TH* PEEFECT GIFT (Continued from page 1) <h« boaudful <»nn( rntidsd. “Why the Chimes Easy, or the Perfect Gift-" The cam vac made up at thlrtj Eva of the youny people of tbia church, assisted by the regular choir end atoo by the Doan orchestra. ■n>c plot of tbs story, a beautiful and touching oae. was well wovkod eua hy the varteos characters. In an sack* old-world church, there had teag been a legsed that whenever a perfect gift was ofeiud to the Christ-chUd, the Chiracs would ring of thenwehrus.
