Range to the girl under l-l years of age
who could make tho best plate of bis
cuits. Mr. O. P. Perkins, the travel
ing representative of the Range Com
pany, was present and had charge of
tho contest. Sixty-live little girls had"
enrolled for tho contest but only titty
of them participated in it, and it was a
novel sight to see them kneading dough
and baking the biscuits. The judges
of tho contest were Mesdames J. E.
Brenzcale, R. E. Ligon. A. G. Means,
G. M. Tolly and D. H. Russell. All of
tho girls did well, aud it was no doubt
with difficulty that the Judges could
decide which plate of biscuits deserved
the award of tho prize, but after care
ful tasting and considering everything
the award was made to Miss Lula
Smith, daughter ot John T. Smith, of
Broadway Township. Mr. Burriss is
greatly indebted to tho judges and nil
the little girls who participated in tito
contest, and requests us to return his
thanks to them.
