Mr. Lyon made a short but brief
talk and hoped the people would
build up and have a good school for
there was nothing Folsom needed
worse than a good school. We must
's certainly say that all the teachers of
n- the Folsom school have discharged
their duties. Miss Jessie Pritchard,
the principal, has worked faithfully
and has done better than any princi
- pal Folsom has ever had. While she
was working on the inside, she never
forgot the duty of her surrounding
Miss Mary A. Louderbough, th
e fourth grade teacher, comes with he
many good qualities and has sure!:
made a. success of her many pupils
She stands high in all the good qualf
ties that makes a good teacher.
Miss M. Torry has all the qualiff
cations that make the little ones
I learn and love her.
Any school would be lucky to hav(
either teacher to teach their school
but we hope to be the lucky ones tc
have them to teach our coming ses
sion. We regret very much that our
school term was so short, and hope
Mr. Lyon will give us a longer term
the coming session.
On Saturday, April 11 there was a
picnic given at our school grounds
by our Mothers' League for the bene
fit of our school. Refreshments were
disposed of and quite a neat sum w:s
accumulated. Everyone enjoyed the
occasion very much.

We regret to have our worthy
principal of our school leave us as
she will leave this week for her home
in New Orleans.
We want our school term to con
tinue for nine months next session.
We would like to have shades, and
our school painted. We are in need
of the badly. Our Mother's League
worked zealously to erect a nuee fence
around our school.
Mrs. A. D. Crawford and daughter
Corinne went to New Orleans the

Test Made of the New
Covington Fire Engine
Mr. Joseph Hellgate. of the Water
us Company, from whom was pur
!chased the new gasoline fire engine
of the Covington Fire Department,
arrived th:s week from Michigan for
the purpose of demonstrating its ca
pacity for fighting fire. Chief Os
tendorf had been in communication
with the company, and in accordance
with previous arrangement wrote to
them upon the arrival of the engine.
Unfortunately the hose did not ar
rive in time for Mr. Hellget was kept
here several 'days awaiting its arriv
al. Finally arrangements were
made with the Mandeville Fire De
paitment to use their hose for the
purpase of demonstration, and the
trial 'was made Friday afternoon.
Sin hundred feet of hose was ob
tained from Mandeville and four hun
dred' feet of old out-of-use hose was
found in Covington and the test
startod about five o'clock. The hose
was run to the river, through the
mayor's office and to the courthouse,
where a stream was directed fb the
roof. Just at this time the old hose
gave way and the mayor's office was
fooded. The damaged hose was cut
out and a new start was made, when
again a piece of the old hose burst.
All the old hose was then discarded,
as it was seen that It was not strbng
enough to stand the strain. As the.
hose would no longer reach the court
house a demonstration was made
with the six hundred feet of Mayde
ville hose in a vacant lot. The en
gine did fine work; in fact there
seemed to be no doubt that it would

feet high with one nozzle at the end
of one thousar~l feet of hose and 125
feet high with two nozzles attached.
The demonstration was still going
