has an unusually good set of hello
girls. They are efficient, accommo accommodating

keep secrets. They couple up more
people than all the preachers in the
country, and if they told some of the
connections they make, quite a few of
us would leave town. The Star thinks
the people ought to chip in and give
the telephone girls a Christmas present.
Gov.-Elect Catts has made up his

Mr. R. W. Blair made -a business
trip to Oxford one day this week.
Mr.- Arthur Douglas served on the
grand jury this week. Arthur has
bought a gasoline engine from Knight
& Lang which he intends to make do
a lot of the labor on his farm that he
has been doing all these years. The
chug, chug of these labor-saving en engines
gines engines can be heard all -over Shady
now and perhaps these farmers will
soon be, reding in automobiles. and
using them on the farm too. "The
world do move."
Arrangements, are 'being made to
have an entertainment at the school
house Friday .evening, the 22nd inst.
A program to be rendered by the
3chool children and Christmas tree.
Everybody in Shady and our friends
everywhere are cordially invited to
come i and spend a pleasant evening
and take part by placing gifts on the
tree and as we are told Santa Claus
is to be there perhaps everybody will
receive something from him. Let us
all try to have in our hearts at this
season the feeling of "Peace on earth
and good will toward all men."
During the past two years we have
had preaching out here more regular
ly and (may I say it) better preach preaching
ing preaching than for years past. Rev. Steph Stephens,
ens, Stephens, has been faithful to preach at the
church every fourth Sunday for two
years past, unless unavoidably de
tained, which has not happened often.
The people seem to appreciate him
and come out to hear him. On the
last fourth Sunday the attendance
was very small. Shall we become in indifferent
different indifferent now or shall we rally to the
church and help it to grow and there
by grow with it? A community with
out church and school is a community
wherein something is radically wrong.
We hope to announce Dr. Gross third
Sunday appointment for next month
and here's hoping every family in this
community will be represented at the
church on these Sundays to hear these,
faithful ministers preach.

(With apologies to Longfellow)
The shades of night were falling fast,
When thru the house the expressman
Bearing a wondrous box that shed,
From every joint and crack it had,
"Oh joy!" we cried, "let us forsake
The picture show tonight, and take
A glimpse of what this package
Tho yet around the gift there clings
In the middle of the kitchen floor,
We unpacked it for an hour or more;
We pulled until our arms were lame,
I But still unceasingly there came
jit covered pots; and pans and plates,
j It stuck to newly frosted cakes;
We waded thru the stuif knee deep;
t or weeks with our food well have to
The sun was rising in the east
When from our tiresome toil we ceas
What was the gift? But one thing
Within my brain, and still it rings:
When shades of night are falling fast.
We sit in peace, for we can laugh
At fuel bills, since we have learned,
That in our furnace can be burned

Itee of the Woman's Club, which com-
raittee is making arrangements for

a letter from the good saint, in which
he says he is determined to hold his
end up at the celebration Saturday
evening. Santa had decided to send
one of his deputies, a mighty fine
man, with,. a good voice, a talent for
making gifts and a great love for
children, but this excellent person
was taken sick and couldn't make the
trip, therefore Santa will come him-
; self. Living as he does in a cold cli
mate;, 364 days, in the year, with no
neighbors but, the Eskimo, Santa is
somewhat stunted, in fact his body is
hardly big enough for his heart, but
he is Johnny on the spot, all right,
when it comes to handing out the
gifts, and he will be at the big civic
Christmas tree, on the public square,
at 7 o'clock sharp next Saturday eve
