Mr. Editor: As I have seen very
few letters from the schools, I de
cided to give you a few items from
our school and community.
Mrs. F. P. White and Mr. Joe
White's baby, we are glad to say,
have recovered after a com inned ill
We are torry to learn that "Aunt
Patsy" White is sick again, and her
sister whom every one knows as
"Aunt Betsy," is still confined to
her bed. These two aged ladies are
the same mentioned by our last cor
Mr. Manning Freeland is now
confined to his bed with a slight at
tack of pneumonia. We hope for
him a speedy recovery.
Mrs. Carrie Freeland spent the
week end with her daughter Mrs.
John C. Wells.
Mr. John Walls has moved into
his large residence near Mr. A. B.
Barden, thus bringing his children
nearer to school. We are glad to
have Mr. Walls for a neighbor.
Miss Essie Hussey, our assistant,
has i large music class which seems
to be making very good progress.
Miss Essie Bussy was called home
last week on a sad mission, the
death of her grandmother. She has
the sympathy of our community.
Miss Nettie Freeland SDent last
week with her sister, Mrs. J. C.
Wells, at Plum Branch.
Rev. Fi. II. Covington preached
to a largo congregation at our school
house last Sunday afternoon, his
text being Acts 12:10. He spoke
beautifully on the deliverance of
Peter from prison, by an angel of
the Lord, and of the wonders
wrought by prayer. We could see
in this lesson how all the church
and that company of people who
had gathered in Mary's house were
engaged in prayer for his deliver
ance, yet when he knocked at the
gates and the damsel told that it
was Peter, they did not believe her.
Just so it is with ra st of us when
we pray. We lack faith. "O ye of
little i'ai<h!" Lord, help thou our
unbelief! Let us pray that God will
give us more faith.
Our school is getting on very
nicely, only two pupils being ab
sent last week. The illness of Mrs.
White and aunt Betsy has caused
us to lose one of our large girls
from school. Wc are sorry to lose
Mr. Editor, we are going to have

Equally fatal is the influence of
