There was a dude that came to preach
ing here Sunday night who wore the
“cutest” thing in the way of a collar that
we have ever seen—the Atlanta dudes
not excepted. He was kind enough to
furnish us with its measurements. From
tip to tip it measured eighteen inches,
and the average height was nine inches.
Taken altogether, it had a very ancient
appearance, and we have been informed
that it has been in the family over 50
years. A priceless heirloom it is. It was
a Cass Station dude who wore it.

back seat for several weeks; that is if
things of the past are going to repeat
themselves. Watch out!
Cassville is a regular hornet nest at
this writing over the pen-picture of Sam
Sly in last week’s paper. I described my
self just as I supposed I would look when
I get ancient, and lo and behold! a cer
tain estimable citizen of the old town has
taken the picture to himself and is wear
ing my shoes. The fun deepens; look
out now for the fur to fly! I will promise
my Cassville friends a Christmas pen
picture of some of the notables and
would-be notables of the place.

The young people from all quarters

Come again boys, but don’t all come
at once. Home.
Christmas will soon be here; the holi
days with all their joyous occasions will
be upon us. Throughout the country
there will be marrying and giving in of
marriage. We don’t profess to be a
regular prophet, nor, can we say that
our predictions always come true; but,
we’ll wear our old last snmmer’s straw
hat if Crofton and Sam Sly don’t each
have a marriage to chronicle ere long.
It strikes us that one of Grassdale’s most
popular youug men and one of her beau
tiful blondes, will join hands and hearts

We see signs every day that betokens
the near approach of Christmas, Our
merchants are arrranging their, shelves
so as to present their beautiful goods in
front to tempt their customers, and we
notice fire crackers arranged so as to
catch the eyes of the little boys and
beautiiul dolls to please the little girls—
and our good old fathers and mothers
are looking out for a fat turkey.
Everybody seems cheerful and happy,
notwithstanding our cotton crop is
short. The corn crop was good and
most of our farmers have fat hogs and
the ’possums are ripe and we have sweet
potatoes and ’possum. We should be
thankful to God for his goodness to us.
I must not forget to say in connec
tion with our good things that we are
in the beginning of a mineral boom. A
company are raising iron ore on the
lands of Capt. H. S. Crawford and Capt.
G. H. Waring. We have some fine iron
ore on B. F. McMakin’s land on the
Caldwell place, now owned by Hon.
Leopold More, of Boston, Mass. In fact
our county is full of iron ore, and while
other sections of Bartow county are
boasting of their fine minerals, why
should not Kingston come to the front
with her millions of wealth.

The little girls that belong to Mrs.
Bailey’s Sunday school class, pieced a

Parties seem to be all the go, just now.
We were pained to learn that members
of the church yielded to temptation, for
getting the vows they made to God in

ticipated in the dance. We trust this
