NIr. Editor: As I have rever tried
to write for a paper I don't hardly
know how to begin. But if you will
r give me a little space I will give you
some of th'e happenings around here.
We are agitating the ques"tion of a
church near here. We are now run
ning a nice Sunday school at

superintendent and Mr. A. C. Wheeler
as secretary, numbering about sixty
We are needing rain very bad now.

the first Sunday in July and we will
have seasons for 40 days. We had a w
small sprinkle. We hope that this s

about up with their work waiting for
it to rain. L
Mr. Ernest Cannon is spending his
vacation from college at home. Er- S
nest you need it, so rest good, old boy. Of
e Mr. D. H. Wheeler is still improv- C
ing up in the mountains. It is thought
that Mr. Wheeler will spend the en- fr
tire summer at the Wheeler hotel.
e Mr. Editor; tell us what do you
v :hink we will get when the dispensary
is gone. Don't wait long before you
tell us either for we want to know
before the election comes off. Al
though we are going to stick to the
dispensary. It is a good thing; all it
dneeds is to carry out the law. Now,
nMr. Editor, if we don't carry out this
lawv, will we carry out the next one. si,
