THE DA.B. INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL. ?
Happiness Reigns Supreme--Water
works About Completed.
Tamassoo, Jan. 28.-Special; De
?mite the rain, our work as weil as j
our pleasures have gone on at Ta
massee. Indeed, we have not noticed
the gloomy Weather in the inside.
Why? Because it did seem that every
time some one would think of get
ting blue, One of those bright faces
would bo seen, coming around the
corner. Then thor? Would bo the
sound of several voices going out in
laughter. Then we could imagine
who had appeared to cause so much
fun. Is it not wonderful to have a
little fun mixed with our work here?
This ls what some one has said: "A
little fun now and then is relished
by the wisest men."
During the past ween we have been
made to feel that it ls Christmas
time again. If you could just see us
as we sit around and open up some
shower boxes you would think of
some little fellow on Christmas morn
ing taking things out of his stock
ings. We couldn't begin to tell all
the nice things we have received.
However, we shall be glad to show
you all these things. If you have a
chance to visit our school we shall
be delighted to show you each article
in its little home.
'More than shower boxes have come
to Tamassee. Tho three new girls are
Misses lAnnio Nicholson, of White
water; Janie E. Nicholson, of Salem,
and Jessie Deal, from Tamassee. Our
school is now comfortably filled. We
are proud of each girl, and as years
come and go, we are expecting great
things from them, each one.
We are so glad to say that the wa
ter-works are very nearly completed
at Tamassee. James Seaborn, of Wal
halla, has been very faithful in con
necting pipes, putting in sinks, con
necting stove tank, etc. Mr. Seaborn
will certainly have everything ready
by 'Monday night lo have the water
running. We are all so thankful for
this convenience. And we take ad
vantage of this time to thank each
and every one who has helped in any
way.. We want to say, too, that Mr.
Seaborn can add one more friend to
his list, and that is-well, whom do
you suppose? "Tamassee Industrial
School." Again we wish to say that
there have been other men who have
probably neglected their work at
home to help with the water-works.
Mrs. J.D. Collons, ot Tamassee, has
made for the school a real nice mat
tress for a double bed. We are glad
to recommend Mrs.Collons to any one
who wants a mattress made. Just
address hor letter "Mrs. J. D. Col
lons, care the Tamassee Industrial
School, Tamassee, S. C."
The Industrial School girls, as well
as many people of the community,
enjoyed the singing which was given
on last Sunday afternoon.
?Ramsey Whitmire, son of iMr. and
Mrs. W. C. Whitmire, of Tamassee,
has been very'sick, suffering an at
tack of appendicitis. We are all so
sorry that Ramisey is sick, and truly
hope that he can soon be back at his
place in our school.
Come to singing on Wednesday
night, Sunday school on Sunday
morning, and to night school on
Tuesday and Friday nights.

This is not a Sunday school meet
ing, but a meeting in which all the
mo ny problems of church work will
be discussed from time to time. But
of course Sunday school necessarily
has a large part In such a program.
In this meeting the Woman's Mis
sionary Society will not be discussed,
but in others it will come In for due
consideration. Also, though the Ep
worth League is not mentioned di
rectly In this program, yet Brother
Edwards, of Westminster, will dis
cuss "The Church and the Young
People." Such a subject cannot be
discussed without at least inferen
tially talking of the one distinctive
young people's organization of the
Methodist church. So even in his
first program we will pretty veil
cover the territory of all the inter
ests of the church. A. W. Barr.
