The little chapel was opened for

McDevitt as pastor. Father Mc-
Devitt kaa the orivileire of beimr the
first Catholic priest
to reside in
Waynesville, and his name is indeed
a household word throughout the
parish. As pastor he is known to be
an alert, jovial, good hearted exem-
plar of the church. The iTle chapel
accommodates about one hundred and
fifty people. Striking and precious
is tne symDoilsm tnat adorns tnis

Communication
Well, the election is over and ev
erything seemingly has returned to
normal and business is traveling at
the usual rate. The past election
was one of unusual quietness, not
much excitement, but very little in
terest manifested, no bitterness
among the voting population. The
camouflage was conducted on a higher
plain than usual; not much throwing
dirt, little personalities used which
very evidently shows that the people
have realized the importance of
thinking for themselves, ' judging
from experience that prosper
ity wirl not obtained by leg
islation. The only means by
which prosperity can be brought
about is by hard work, economy and
close attention to business. It is
also noticeable so far as the South
is concerned the old cry of fraud
has not raised. Evidently showing
that the people have become to con
sider the sacredness of the ballot
more serious and that there is but
very little in politics and the spend
ing of money in elections is on the
wane. It also shows that Jimmy
Reed and other noted investigators
that if there are any grounds for in
vestigation they will have to aeek
some other section to raise an issue.
The time is near approaching when
our law makers will gather and leg
islative hopper will begin to grind
and it is to be hoped that they will
be more considerate and act the part
of wisdom and give their attention
to more essential things and not
trifle their time away in minor mat
ters which the American people are
not interested in as a whole.
It seems from what -ve gatfie:
from the prets the tax question wiil
be one of the paramount question.!
that is to come before the incoming,
session of Congress. It has been
thought all the ages past one of the
question to settle that ever cam be-
fore the people, After . looking U(i .
it nas uet;u. prvwvu tnitx tiiv wwt wc.o
so formulated " that the rulers anf
wealthy clans" could shift' the "burden.,
of all taxes or1 service on the burden
bearer, the farmer, and manual labor. ,
IThi's plan has followed all down the
. i ages and in many instances proves a
! curse to the people, for it is to some
i extent the cause of the bootieicicei-
