Teeth have been worshiped and, in
fact, are venerated as relics in some
religious shrines. Buddha’s tooth is
preserved in an Indian temple. The
Cingalese worship the tooth of a mon
key, while an elephant’s and a shark’s
tooth serve a similar purpose among
the Malabar islanders and the Tonga
islanders respectively. The Siamese
were formerly the possessors of the
tooth of a sacred monkey, which they
valued highly. In a war with the
Portuguese they lost the holy grinder,
along with much gold and precious
English and Scotch Golf.
Although golf was played in Scot
land at a much earlier period, the hon
or of the tirst club rests with Eng
land, where the Royal Blackheath was
organized In 1608—possibly by James
VI., possibly only as an outgrowth of
that convivial “Knucklebone club.”
The Edinburgh Burgess Golfing socie
ty, with more social than sporting
predilections, dates from 1735, and St
Andrews, popularly regarded as the
alma mater of golf, was founded in
1754, while the Honorable Company of
Edinburgh Golfers set up links at Mus
selburgh in 1774.

The Jackson Methodist S. S. sor
rows greatly to have to record the
death of one of its most efficient
faithful members. In the death of
Mrs. Outhouse, the S. S. sustains a
distinctive loss. She testified most
confidently before going, of the won

doeth all things well. She was truly

perfect heart. Asa school be it re
That while Mrs. Outhouse’s trans
lation from earth to Heaven was
great gain to her, we mourn over her
going, but will hold in high esteem
her Christian character, her full con
secration and her praise-worthy exam
ple in seeking the salvation of souls.
Resolved, that oar school has lost
one of its most competent and belov

INTERESTING LETTER FROM
REV. W. W. McGORD.
Register, Ga., July 27th 1907,
Mr. Editor and Friends—
I will report some
of our recent meetings for the bene
fit of those interested in the work.
After closing at Richton Miss, I went
to Mobile —then to Fiomaton them e
to. Pensacola The latter is a nice
little city of some 18thousand inhab
itance. The opening of the Panama
Canal will no doubt make this an
important port. In leaving this
city we crossed a large Lake on R. R.
Renniding one of the bridges across
Lake Pouchartrain coming out of
New Orleans, which is seven miles
long. The “Ellen in” R. R. is the
only one running to this place at pres
ent. It has several branches however.
It is supposed by many that Mr.
Williams Line, The Ga, & Fla. R. K.
from Augusta to Fla. is making its
way to the Gulf Coast because of the
Canal. By the time it is finished in
1915 there will likely be two or three
more trunk lines, running Houthwest
and North-east, through Ga. The
writer then camo on over to River
Junction IGI miles. Here you can
take boatß on the Chattahoochee riv
er for Kainbridge and other points
north es well as south. Then we
took the Seaboard which passes thro
Tallahassee. This being the capitul
of the state “The land of Flowers"
one would naturally think it quite a
city. It is only a small town howev
er, with some forty seven hundred
people, coming on to Greenyille,
where God gave us such a gracious
meeting a few months ago. The wri
ter stopped off for the night, leaving
next morning for Madison, where he
caught train on Valdosta Southern,
for Valdosta. This little road is part
ENTERTAINMENT GIVEN BY
MISS DOLLIE McKIBBEN.
Miss Dollie McKibben was the
most gracious hostess at a large re
ception Tuesday evening in honor of
her guests Misses, Johnson, Daniel,
Giliard and Little and her brother and
his guest Mr. Wheeler of Eatonton*
The entire Kwer floor of the spacious
home was thrown together, the re
ceiving party being stationed in the
beautifvl reception hall, The breezy
porches proved a rendezvous for many
of the guests. Conversation cards
were passed and quickly filled and for
two hours the merry chatter of
tongues could be heard. Miss Lois
Biles rendered a number of musical
selections to the delight of tne guests
At a late hour ices and cake was serv
ed. Miss McKibben’s hospitality Is
well known and a social affair at her
delightful home is a highly anticipa
of the Ga. and Fla. R. R. to be,
with a stop over of some eight hours
in Valdosta, which is the Atlanta of
South Ga., the pluckey little city of
som 10009 people in Lowndes County,
which rose up in her manhood and
womanhood a few weeks ago and vo
ted out the whiskey Devil, he then
took train on G. S. &F. for Howell
Ga , where Miss Ossie McCord had
been conducting meeting for weeks
at “McCords Chapel,” where God
gave us gracious victory. We re
ceived 8 members on profession. The
writer raised SIOO. on Sunday in cash
and subscription for improvements
on the Church, This is needy field,
and anyone readipg this letter who
desires to place a little of the Lords
money where it will bring good re
turns could not do better, perhaps
than to invest a little here. If you
desire to do so please send it to the
writer at his home adJreßS, which is
Atlanta Ga. care of Chas D. Tillman.
After closing here Tnursday P. M.
We took train for different points.
The serine coming 240 miles to Trin
ity church in Bulloch, one of the
best agricultural Counties in the
State, Bro. W. W. Hooten leading
the hosts in song we began Friday.
Will go from here to Indian Spring
Camp Meeting. There will be*large
delegation from this work and from
all over Southern Ga. and other states
We are expecting good things from
Bros. Morrißon and Paul this year.
Let all the Butts County people at
tend and appreciate such a meeting,
so close by.
With love to all. lam as ever,
Your Bro. in Him,

DEPLORABLE ACCIDENT AT

On arriving there Mrs. Lawson was
driving down the hill just before ar*
riving at the when Mr. Law*
son thinking the horse needed a firm*
er hand reached to get the lines, and
in checking the horse pulled the
wrong line which caused the buggy
to miss the bridge, causing him to
fall fifteen feet onto the rocks below

physicians from Griffin are in atten

LOOK AFTER THE RAIL
Mr. Editor. I want to call the atten
tion of our commissioners to the con
dition of the rail road crossings at the
Gate City Gin, the one at Mr. H. F.
Gilmore’s residence two at Pepporton
and the one below there. I don’t
know whether it is the R. R’s or the
Commissioner’s duty to fix these
places. They need dirt or cindera
put in between the rails. It is awful
to pass over it, If it is the R. R’s.
duty Mr. Newman should attend to
it at once so there will be no com
plaint made to the rail road.
If it is the Countie’s duty let it be
fixed at once as this is very annoying
to the traveling public, and there is
danger of a breakdown with a heavy
loaded wagon in passing over such a
place, and a train coming might
cause serious damage.
