A Progressive School
Our school is progressing
icely. We are having a fairly
ood attendance considering the
Lnfavorable, weather.
This community is highly
llessed with such bright, intel
igent and ingenious boys and
irls that the patrons of this
,nd' the surrounding districts
vill ever be looking for the bet
ernient of the school. They
hould not only be looking for
he betterment of the school,
)ut using their hands and
neans toward the improvement
)f the school.
I feel sure it will be the great
.st investment a man can make;
ine that will stand forever, and
if which God will approve. I
eel sure that He will bless each
ne and enable him to have
nore to give, if he uses his
neans in the right way. I am
no that is willing to give freely
or all causes which are for the
dvancement of God's kingdom
on earth.
