CHARLIE JIOORE COULD'XT
FIND ANY CATS
Heather Island, Feb. 3. A chim chimney
ney chimney that would not draw was built
here for Mr. Oscar Hightower some
time ago, and when the weather
turned cold, Mr. Hightower needed
all fire places, so he went over to
Ocala for Mr. C. L. Moore, who
came down, tore down the chimney
and rebuilt it, and it drew like a
pipe. While here a colored river
hunter induced Mr. Moore off for a
wild cat hunt one night over in the
Tiger Den country, where the wood
is thick and dark and scar)-, with an
occasional tiger slipping thru the
under-brush. The darkey had dogs
along and they scented many var varment
ment varment trails, but they failed to trail
a cat. At midnight the hunters
were four miles over in the thick den
and Mr. Moore tired out. And no
cat. Mr. Moore loooked for the Pole
star. It was in the south and as still
as ever and the dipper stood straight
on its handle. A hog grunted
woof! "What's that?' he asked. The
darkey opened a cavernous mouth
and ha ha-ed all over the tangled
under forest, and said, "let's go
home; follow me and my dogs."
In deep Tiger Den, Mr. Moore said
he got soaking wet and chilled to the
bone. And no. cat ever thought of
roaming there under the stars..
They reached home after Venus
peeped over the Electra country. The
darkey went out next day and caught
his cat: catsup for supper.

how to do things.
All the teachers and pupils came
together in the chapel just before
noon, and had a short service, the
principal feature of which was the
music. They have a fine organ, and
we all know the colored people can
sing. Many a person of undisputed
good taste has turned aside from

old-fashioned campmeeting hymns.
The visit ended with a perform

Fessenden has students from al
over the tate, but the majority
come from the neighborhood, many
walking several miles every day in

assists by allowing children from
the neighboring schools to attend the

own schools are out, and that the
privilege is appreciated is shown by
some coming all the way from An
