Christmas ie ' abont bore— Christmas tlio saddest, sweetest time of the year. It is a period for entertainment and family re union, and a t ime when one re- members liovv old one is, and how little ho has realy accom plished. Heaven liero belongs to the tender world that does’nt know the truth about Santa Claus and beyond that world happiness is feverish ai'.d fitful. To the young ChrisUiias is a million miles away, bnt as one grows older time's sickle moves more rapidly and finally Christinas fol lows Christmas loo hurtidly. The old people say that only the world is old; that man is ever young, and their ere space ot yesterday is between the young heart that yearned fur the filled stocking and the old, feeble heart that way never throb another Christmas day. Venezuela is at war with Eng land and Germany, all because she owed both those nations debts and ignored every eifort tliey made to collect. England dont fool with people always and so ■when nothing would do she went down and seized the ports of Venezuela and is collecting the bebts from the custom receipts. The little republic is now anxious to arbitiate the matter and it is a pity she did not show a disposition to want to settle up before all her ports and warships were in the hands of the enemy. The U S Las stood by these little South American states all along but she cannot afford to protect them in their effort to defraud other na tions out of just money. According to the time honored custom we will nol. isane Tho Times next w^eek. And so we wish you one and all a merry Christmas. We have much to . \)C tbakf'ul for and appreciate the ITBeral piititDnngo wo /fiavo re ceived from the people during the year. Our circulation is as goOD as we can expect and in the future we shall ^ endeavor to give you as good a paper as we can. ACTUAL WAS EXISTS BE- TfEIll YfflEZlIELA AID THE ALLIES. Washington, Doc. 11.—No doubt remains in the minds of members of the government that an actual state of war prevails be tween England and Germany on tho one hand, and Venezuela on the other. The action of the allied Eurepean powers in seizing and sinking Venezuelan war ships is declared in ofiicial circles to have been taiitamoiiot to a be ginning of hostillitiea. Consid erable criticism of the course of the German and English naval commanders, for what is charac terized in some quarters as a ■wanton act of destruction, has been heard in Washington today, both in the executive departments and in congress, and many public men are of the opinion that the tivo European governinents have committed an act which will meet witli condemnation thr?nghout this eouutrj' and aboard. The information in regard to the Venezuelan situation which has come to tho stale department ■within the past 2i iiours from Herbert W. Bowen, United States minister in Caracas, is snmmar- ised as follows. Intense excitment prevails in Caracas. President Cartro has entered on a policy of reprisal and has called on the Venezuelan peofle to resist foreign - invasion Through the efforls of Mr. Bowen the German consul general, who ■was arrested by order of President Castro, has been released. And in this connection Mr. Bowen says also; “Tho president informs ino that he has released all Ger man and British who were arres ted.” The German and British Bcjnadrons have entered LaGuayra harbor, and a “peaeefnl” blockade has been declared. From the United States consul ate, f ort of Spain, Trinidad, the state department learns that the Venezuelan warshipBoMyvar was Tho latest advices from Mr. Bowen do not show that any con flict has taken place between the armed forces of Vejiezuola and thofe of the allies. In one dis patch pays that 250 marines were landed at La Guayrn, and these ri;i-(!ued Dritish and German sub jects who were believed to be in danger and returned with them to tlieir European ships. It is evident tliat messages sent from Caracas and La Guayra by telegraph arc subject to great delay. The latest telegram re ceived from Mr. Bowen came to the state department early this morning and Vvhile ir did not con- t-din the time of its transmission from Caracas, it was presumed from tho information contained tliiit it was filed there yesterday morning or afternoon. All doubt as to the truth of the report that, after capturing the Venezuelan gunboats in La Gnayra harbor, the allied forees took them out to sea and sunk tiiem, was removed this afternoon by the receipt of the news that confirmation of this incident had been officially sriven in the Brit ish house of commons today. This action of the t'(Vo European nations was discussed with the greatest interest in (Government circles, and it is evident that it has created what is known a- mong nations as “a painful im pression,” It has been tho understand here that while Geniiany and England would adoi>t stringent measures to compel Venezuela to pay the claims of their subjects conditions of actual war, with the consequent danger of blood shed; and the destruction of gov ernmental and private property would be avoided. The course of tho allies, therefore, in scuttling Venezuelan government had com mitted any act of hostility, is re garded by many members of tiie administration as a highhandtd and useless proceeding which, to say the least, is surprising after tho assurances received by Presi dent Roosevelt from Germany as to what that nation intended to do in securing tho liquidation of tho debt owed to German sub jects by A^eneznela. Just one year ago today the German ambassabor in Washing- ington lelt with Secretary Hay a incmorandnm, setting forth the buGwircrii lilo . ment and Venezuela and explain ing what Germany proposed to do. In this memdoranduin Ger many indicated that her course in Venuzuela would hot extend to actual w'ar fare or to other coersive measures than u block ade of the principal Venezuelan harbors, evidently to prevent tiie importation of foo 1 stuffs and starve President Custro into sub mission, or, in the evant that this policy was not effective, to occupy *eni);orarily different Ven ezuelan harbor places and' levy diUies there,m. President Roose- accepted the statement of the German ambassador as setting forth all the coercive measures that might be employed by bis government. ^t-il’ie ^jluckbu/ 525 J W Holloway^' 526 C C Taylor, 527 W H JVlcCann, 528 W A Royal, 629 Luther Cockeriiam, 530 W D Stoker 531 W E Loyd, 532 J M Royal, 533 J N Woodruff, 534 W A Franklin, 535 P B Moody, 536 E W Haynes, 537 W E Greenwood, 538 J L E Cox, 539 H G Lewis, 54U Monroe Walker, 541 T J Walls, 542 Allen Simmons, 591 D C Cockorham, 592 R D Moody, 595 M M Hamby, ®06 Garfield Chipman, 611 (!eo White, 012 J no Bu rchette, 642 E D Stonestreet, 648 J Q Adams, 653 L A Norman, 655 W H do 657 J W Combs, 658 W C Wolf, 660 J P Harris, 001 F Callaway, 003 Houston do 064 J F do 065 N B do 000 Daniel Shores, 667 J D Isaacs, 068 D H No- nan, 673 E S Combs, 674 J R do 082 Henry Wolfe, 683 L A Combs, 690 II H Wolf, 694 Ranson Liles, 096 J G Poindexter 097 F C Turner, 698 Dock Hanes, If you feci ill and need a pill Wiiy not purchase the bcsi?

They marcted up the aisle and took place^ under the wedding arch. The bride and brides maid, her sister,Miss Grace Gwyn, entered the cllurch and were joined at tho alter oy the groom and his best man,jliis brother, Mr. James Lil- lard,'who entered from a side door.They stopped under the weddiogvarch and were received by Rev. W. L. Sherrill and Rev, T. A. Boone,who together performed the cercmi.iny using the methodist form. The bridal party left the church immediately after the cer emony was performed and drove to the.Elk Inn where they were greeted by a few most intimate friends and relatives. They then droi? to the depot where had colleL'iea a large crowu oi anxious friends to bid them good bye and best wishes. They boarded the train for Charlotte, their future home. The bride wore a beautiful travelling dress made of blue, and panne velvet hat trim med in green grapes. She carri ed in her hand a large bunch of brides roses. She looked beauti ful, was at her best and was greatiy admired by her many friends. The, brides-maid wore blue veiling over lonzine silk trimmed in white medlallian and panne velvet-and a beautiful black pic ture hat. She carried pink roses. She was a picture of beauty. Thej^room and best rr,an wore plain black sack suits, black tics and grey gloves. Thei.little flower girl and ring bearer were perfectly lonely and charmed the audience. They were dressed in white. The, ushers w’ore blach sack suits, ■R'hite ties and grey gloves. The yojing couple is well known and it' is unneccessary to say that the’young lady will be great ly missed. Her going away, Elkin loses one of the most popu lar and attractive young ladies both in church and social circles. Both the young people have hosts of friends here and away from here.

Silver City has a population of 3000, one third Mexicans who live in huts of adobe, and speak a conglomeration of Spanish and English. Perhaps one half of the total population of New Mexico is Mexican & Indian and for that reason the U S Senate Commif-.e has reported adversely in regard to its admission as a State and all the papers out hero are hot about it. A furnished room here costs ?10 per month, and board at a Chinese restaurant $25.00 per month. As yet I have had no dish in which I could detect the flavor of rats or mice. While zero wcathc-r has prevailed all over the Ni..rth and East, it has not below 40 above here. Dew is unknown, and the rain all falls in tho summer.

But aside from the climate, not much can be said as yet in favor of this country, for most of it for lack of water, is a barren waste. There are quite a number of mines of silver and copper in the country around here and the la gest Turquoise mine in the world is 12 miles a.vay. ] have met but one North Caro linian since coming here, and the reason must be that they all go back.
