The entertainment at the school
Friday night was largely attended.
The contestants were all on hand.
The contestants for choosing sides
were Messrs Brooks and Mahaffey of
the Eden community. The latter's
side won. The book used for the
spelling was the old Blue Back Spell
er. The invitation was free for old
and young and we think the older
heads did the best spelling, especial
ly the ladies.
Prof. Charles F. Brooks, of Lau
runs, who has been a great worker as
a teacher and benefactor in our Eden
school in his talented way, conducted
the spelling match. Visitors from oth
er schools were present. We had ex
cellent music performed by the Eden
string band. After the exercises were
over a delicious bounty of cream and
cake were served. The occasion was
greatly enjoyed by all present. Our
teacher, Mrs. Roper, is one among the
best in the county. It requires a great
deal of brain and talent, too, to make
a good teacher and she has both and
knows how to use them. Would we
had all such teachers.
