Opening of Schcol.
The opening excrcihs of the Winn- 1
field High School w:1l) he held in the red
auditorium at nine o'clock Monday At]
morning, Sept.i mber 5th. There will St(
be two or hreec talk by prominent a t
citizens of Wiinfield, in addition to pri
which there will be some important bui
announcements made by the princi- Wi
pal of the school concerning the ple
course of study and the policy of the eat
school in general. It will be worth in
the time of any patron of the school bej
to go to the school building for a ha
short time to hear the talks by the me
citizens and the announcements of ok
the principal. the
Everpbody in Winnfield is cordially hit
invited to be present and it is hoped M4
that every person interested in the
welfare of the school will take the
time and trouble to be present.
The first faculty meeting was held
at the high school building yesterday of
afternoon to make final arrangements at
for the opening on Monday. Entrance M
examinations will be held on Monday in
afternoon for all students who are w
now unclassified and for all who are at
not regularly classified in the high
school department. This does not to
apply to grades below the sixth.
The Election, pI
On Inoxt Tuesday the Democratic al
voters will select their standard bear
ers for Congressman and Board of
Equalizers. For the latter office the
present incumbent, Hon. W. M. Wal- T
lace, has no opposition. For Congress t1
Hon. J.'T. Watkins, present incum- sc
bent, and Judge A. J. Murff are can- di
didates. The endorsement at the a+
primary is equivalent to election. A as
warm campaign, full of acrimony, has r(
been carried out, but the voters have ti
taken little stock in the charges pre- n'
ferred. The result cannot be fore
told, but we do not look for abything S

The Dodson Fair. p
The Comrade was visited this week L
by Dr. Talbot and Mr. Glen Fleming, h
promoters of the contemplated fair at ti
Dodson in October. at
,,.They reported good success in fin- ii
S ancing the proposition and were much L
gratified at the interest being manul- T
fested. The time is short, but we are ii
satisfied the fair will be pulled off,
and, become a fixed feature in the
future. - 0
We are glad to see the enterprising a
i people of our little sister making this E
start and will have more to say about v
i: --the fair from week to week. It is
: hoped that every farmer in the par
ish will take a part in making it a r
r;, success.

Atlanta School Building Let.
S .Dear Comrade:-August 30 was a
,e red letter day for the little town of
Atlanta. Contract was let to A. T.
11 Stephenson of New Orleans to erect
ia two-story brick school building, the
o price being $8,285. Plans for this
it building were drawn by Architect
i- Will Drago, and I think, wben com
te pleted, we will have one of the neat
ie eat and most convenient school houses
Ih in the State. Mr. Stephenson will
o1 begin work at once, and agrees to
a have it completed by Dec. 20. In the
ie meantime we will open school in the
of old building. We propose to make
the coming session the best in the
ly history of Atlanta. School opens on
,d Monday. Yours for success,
W. T. NORMAN.

ld Today and tomorrow the teachers
of Winn parish are being examined

mences next Monday. The schools

ire and a prosperous year is looked for.
The Comrade congratulates the
ot teachers upon the favorable outlook
and offers its columns for :an expres
sion of their views from time to time,

tic all things.
The Lord Has Visited Tide.
he A great meeting has just closed at
al- Tide, La. It began Saturday before
Sas the third Sunday in August and lasted
m- seven days. Pastor J. B. Durham
n-. did the preaching. There were 20
he accessions to the church, 10 by letter
A and 10 by baptism. The church was
ias revived greatly. H. C. Eagles led in
eve the singing, which was second to
re- none.
re- The church was organized the third
ng Sunday in September, 1909, with six
members. Now it consists of a mem
bership of 41. These members com
pose a strong band of workers in the
ek Lord's vineyard. The undersigned
ig, had the pleasure of attending part of
at the meeting, and have never seen so
small a band of workers have greater
in- interest, atd try to do more for the
ich Lord's cause than did the church at
,ni- Tide. May the Lord ever bless them
are in'their work. N. D.
