traveled among fteae and other Native
Americans of North aad South
Carolina from 1700 until 1711.
This waa a time when moat of the i
epidemic daaaafe had already been
done to the Intiaat of cartcra North i
Carolina, rmilisg la at leak aa 80
percent decaeaae la population. It was i
' a time when Native American cultures 1
J were changing rapidly ia the face of I
?population loss, mergers with other ;
Indian culture*, and increasing i
contact with European culture. But it i
was also a time at which it was ;
. possible for Lawaoa to record saaae of i
; the remainiag aspects of traditional I
f pnaammnmamnmm
Siouaas who are known to have had
cleat WtMlnas with the Cheraw
provides one of the few windows we
we read Lawsou's description of
marriage practices among Carolina's
Eastern Siouaas in 1705 we aae
coating aboat as dose a> we may ever
get to Cheraw marriage
lawsou tells us little aboat the
?pacific ceremonies involved in
weddings. In fhet he says that
ahhongh he had bean told by other
whiles aboat "a great deal of Pons and
CmmamjT being essential to Indian
marriages, tat his time among the
Iadiaas he never saw any real
evidence of it He implies that there
ems not a ceremony at the
actual wedding. What he did see in
several tribes was a pattern of the
social and economic steps which had
to be taken when a couple got married
"When any young Indian has a
mind for such a Gkl to his Wife, he. or
some one for him, goes to the young
Woman's Parents, if living; if not, to
her nearest Relations; where they make
Offers of the Match betwixt theCOopie.
The Relations reply (hey will consider
of it, which serves for a sufficient
Answer, till there be a second Meeting
?boot the Marriage, which is generally
brought into Debate before all the
Relations (that are old people) on both
Sides; and sometimes the King, with
all his great Men, give their opinions
therein. If it be agreed on. and the
young Woman approve thereof... the
Man pays so much for his Wife; and
the handsomer she is the greater Price
the bears. Now. it often happcaa, that
the Mm has not so much of dtear
Money ready, at ha it id pay for his
Wife; hat if ihey know him 10 be a
pood banter, tad had he caa raise the
aaa agreed for ia soree few Moons. or
?ay bale time thoy agree, she shall go
with Mb. at betmb'4, hoc he is mm to
bare any Knowledge of her (ill the
utmost Payment it discharg'd; all
which it punctually observ'd.
*The Marriages of these Indians 1
He no farther binding than the Man
red Woman agree together Either of
hem has Liberty 10 leave (be other...;
yet whosever takes the Woman (hat
was another Man's before...mutt 1
sertaialy pay to her former Husband !
whatsoever he gave for her. Nay, if j
the be a Widow, and her Husband died i
n Debt, whosoever takes her to Wife ?
jays all her Husband's Obligations, ,
hough never so many. Yet the Woman j
s not required lo pay anything (unless ,
the is willing) that was owing from her <
Husband, so long as she keep Single." '?
' Thus from reading Lawsoo it J
ieems that once a couple decided they ,
wanted to get married, the traditional ,
way of doing it among the Eastern
tiouan nations was as much a social <
ind economic exchange at anything. j
f you wanted to get married, and you ,
mid afford it, and all the elders and j
elatives approved, then you got I
named. If you wanted to separate, all
m had to do was move out. Children
Jways went with the mother, being
nembers of their mother's clan. But
narrying a woman who had been
narried before, especially one who
ad beat married to a man with debts,
ould be an expensive proposition.

The Bilit ere heck?
My guess is Aey are not back/The
emotional high they reached against
Kansas City in Sunday 's win over the
Chiefs is not again reachable. They
"peaked" in one game loo many. The
44'ere "peaked last week against
the Giants and they could not perform
against Dallas in Sunday's loss. Joe
Montana could not perform at the
same peak he displayed in the three
Super Bowls he played in with the
49'ers and won. He probably should
quit while he is still healthy after
suffering a concussion in Sunday's
game against Buffalo His "back
up" Roger Craig looked better Old
football players never die they just
fumble away. He was great as long as
he was young, probably one of the
greatest. This principle-retire when
you are ahead has been hard for so
many champions Just to give up that
talent is almost to hard to do for most
of them.
lfthe Bills manage to win Sundays
Super Bowl against a superior Dallas
team and quarterback Troy Aikman.
it will be the upset of the Century. The
odds makers give Dallas a 20 point
idvantage. to win. As much as I
would like Buffalo to win. I believe
their peak was spent against Kansas
City. The phenomenon of regression
is just too much to overcome
I said last week the 49'ers spent
heir wad against the Giants and that
Sills would gun sling the Chiefs It

So maay tunes during the winter
months I we kids coming into clinic
with sore throats. Most of these kids
have viral illness, and of course,
sometimes it turns out to be Strep
throat. Oneofthew viral illnesses that
can cause sore throat and tonsillitis is
infectious mononucleosis, commonly
known as "mono."
Mono isa contagious illness caused
by the Epstein- Barr virus This disease
is seen in all parts of the world The
virus is passed from person to person
through the saliva (It is sometimes
called the "kissing disease".I and it
can be detected in saliva up to six
months after the illness. The time of
contact with the virus until a person
becomes sick can be from 30 to 50
The most common symptoms of
infectious mono include fatigue, fever,
sore throat with pus on the tonsils and
enlarged neck glands. Occasionally a
patient will also have spots on the roof
of the mouth or swoueu. puny eyeum
While tbe symptoms of mono cm le
mild, the recovery period may fc
long Fatigue, which seems to %
especially common in the teenage
patients, may last from weeks to
Like for most viral illnesses, the
treatment for most cases of mono Is
simply rest fluids and Tylenol for pain
of fever Some of the more severe
cases may require asteroid prescribed
by adoctor. We have mentioned in an
earlier article these patients mdy
have an enlarged spleen during t|)e
illness, so avoiding contact sports,
such as football, is a good idea. I
should mention also that I do *
occasionally see an unfortunate pari<$t
who has mono patient with a Strep
throat infection on the tonsils as well \
These patients will of course need an
Well, that 's all on mono We'll see

Christ's sacrifice was in no sense
intended to appease an angry deity.
Rather it was God offering himself.
"God so loved . ..that he gave": and
the sharing in this sublime transaction
of all three Persons of the blessed
Trinity is revealed in the beautiful
words: "Christ. through the eternal
Spirit offered himself without spot to
God" (Hebrews9:14)
Moreover. Christ's sacrifice was
altogether voluntary. "The Son of
man came not to be ministered unto,
but to minister, and to give his life a
ransom for many" (Matthew 20:28)
"Nomantaketh it from." He said
concerning His life, "but I lay it down
of myself' (John 10:18).
"Our Savior Jesus Christ." said
Paul, "gave himself for us. that he
might redeem us from all iniquity"
(Titus 2:13. 14). "He offered up
himself' (Hebrews 7:27). He. "gave
himself a ransom for all" (I Timothy
2:6). "He gave himself for our sins,
that he might deliver us from this
present evil world, according to the
will of God and our Father "(Galatians
Here indeed was perfect love, made
manifest t>v an act of utter self
sunemici gikisumiitssion.mew-tmng :

What the Incarnation cost God tlje
Father we shall never know. How
much it meant for God the Son to die
for the human race must also remain
a mystery. Even the angels do opt
understand it; and it will hie the thence
of endless discussion and wonderment
through all eternity < 1 Peter 1:11,12).
Nevertheless the results are clear.
God "hath made him to be sin for
us. who knew no sin; that we might be
made the righteousness of God in
him' (2 Corinthians 5:21).
"Christ redeemed us from the curj:
of the law. having become a curse for
us" (Galatians 3:13 RSV). Have you
ever wondered what the curse of the
law is'' What was it that God paid this
tremendous price for? ^
The curse of the law is not the
keeping of it. but rather the result of i|. A
The curse from which Christ redeemed
us is the curse of death. This is the
second death eternal separation from
our loving God What a wonder thit
God would go to such lengths to keep
us from suffering eternal separation
from Him. Oh wondrous, glorious

Jordan knows it sounds "off the

second career in pro baseball. And
who's to doubt him? Even if he can't
