Antioch School Picnic.
Mrs. T. P. Lyon closed her school
at Antioch last Friday and gave the
children a picnic upon the school
grounds Saturday. A feature of the
day was an elocution contest for the
purpose of awarding a prize that
was offered early in the session. The
gold medal at the close of the con
test was awarded to Miss Lucile
Brunson. A prize was also presented
to Ray Gardner for having made
the best record in spelling during
the session. This prize was present
ed by Mr. O. B. Anderson and the
gold medal was presented to Miss
Lucile by Mr. W. B. Cogburn.
After the contest Mr. Cogburn
made a very appropriate address.
He has an abiding interest in the
secular sohools of the county as
well as in the Sunday schools. A
delightful dinner was served. Mrs.
Lyon, ai Miss Robbie Jones, hae
taught th2 Antioch school for four
or five years and the announcement
that she declined to serve for an
other year caused much disappoint
ment among the patrons. Her faith
ful service and her personal interest
in each pupil will be greatly missed
in the future conduct of the school.

An Up-to-date Machine Shop.
Mr. E. S. Johnson announces in
his advertisement this week that he
will open a first-class machins shop
at his planing mill May 15. He has
employed Mr. J. C. Walker, the
best machinist in the county, to
take charge of this modern plant.
Mr. Johnson will make a speoialty
of repairing engines, boilers and
machinery of all kinds, soliciitng
such work as has been sent to the
city shops. Mr. Johnson can not
only do the work more cheaply
here, but time and express will be
saved by having the work done at
home. Mr. Johnson carries a large
stock of building material of all
kinds, and his store near the depot
is also well supplied with merchan
dise at reasonable prices. Mr. John
son remarked incidentally to The
Advertiser's representative yesterday
that hile he is in the race for busi
ness he will also be in the treasurer's
race again next year.
The Tragic Death of Fannie
The manner in which the sum
mons came to Fannie McManus, the
bright, sweet, thirteen-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Trapp
McManus, suggests and emphasizes
the thought that "a thousand doors
lead to death." Whether in the
peaceful slumbers of the night or
languishing upon toe bed of afflic
tion, or pursuing one's regular du
ties, when God calls, In his own
time and way, we must go hence to
611 the place He has prepared for us
in that upper and better world.
Just before nightfall Friday,Fan
nie, who was always willing to do
her full share of the little duties in
cident to the homelife, went out to
the well for a bucket of water.
While in the act of drawing the
water from the well, the shelter
above the well fell upon her, knock
ing her backward to the ground and
crushing her head. Hearing Fan
nie's cry of distress,her father rushed
immediately to her assistance, pil
lowing ker bruised and bleeding
head upon his breast. And from
the bosom of her earthly father,
who would have given his life for
her had it been possible to restore
her life- Faunie's spirit took its
flight to her Heavenly Father. She
never spoke nor regained eonscious
ness after being struck. A physi
cian was summoned by telephone,
but life was extinct in a few min
utes, the serious nature of the
wound making it impossible for hu
man efforts to save her even had
medical skill been immediately
No little girl in the community
was more genuinely beloved than
was Fannie McManuB. Always
quiet, gentle, amiable, sweet-temp
ered, never speaking ill of anyone,
she drew her associates to her in a
way that made lasting friends of
them. Little wonder then that the
announcement that her sudden and
tragic death caused universal sor
row. The sympathy of the entire
community has gone out to the
grief-stricken parents and the entire
household. Fannie was a member
of the Methodist church, and while
she only recently united with the
church she was steadily developing
into a strong Christian character.
Frequently when the hour arrived
for family prayer she would read a
favorite chapter from the Bible.
She was a regular attendant upon
Sunday school and was one of the
brightest members of her class.
The floral tributes were particu
larly beautiful. Besides pretty de
signs from the Methodist Sunday
?Bcho'il and the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union, there were a
largi- number from individual
frieuils. The members of Fannie's
class m the graded school attended
her funeral in a body. The funeral
was conducted at the Methodist
church saturday afternoon by Rev.
J. R. Walker, assisted bv Dr. M.
D. Jeffries and Rev. E. C. Bailey,
The bun.tl took place immediately
after tin- funeral in the village cem

I no social event of the season
more thoroughly enjoyed, 18 mern
bers being present. A very interest
ing literary program was rendered
?after which the guests were invited
in the dining room where a course
luncheon was most delightfully
served. The table in its national so
oiety colors of blue and white with
large vases of blue forget-me-nots
presented a lovely scene. The white
place cards ith the D. A. R. in
signia and the guests names in blue
added much to the blue and white
scheme. The first course of straw
berry cocktail was served in li ttl
orange baskets with dainty little
handles of smilax from which a tiny
flag waved and us?d as souvenirs of
the occasion. The chicken croquettes
with rosette waffles and tomatoes
with mayonaise all served in blue
and white china. This was followed
by a delicious salad oourse also
served in blue and white china, of
shrimp and cheese salad, nut and
celery sandwiches, cheese straws
tied with tiny blue and white rib
bon, celery and beaten biscuits. The
desert course of vanilla ice cream
and old fashion pound cake. The
little individual salted nut cases of
red, white and blue shield chaped
baskets in which the salted almonds
were especially admired and por
trayed a very patriotic thought. So
perfectly and pleasantly did the hos
tess entertain that the guests were
reluctant to leave at a late hour in
A very enjoyable affair of the
past week among the children was
the birthday party given by lovely
little Susan Mathis on Saturday af
ternoon. Many childish games were
enjoyed until late in the afternoon
when the many little guests were in
vited into the beautiful dining room
made more beautiful by the artistic
decorations in pink and white. De
licious white snow mountain cake
with pink ice cream was served. In
the center of the table was the huge
white birthday cake on which bum
ed seven pink candles suggestive of
the little hostess. Each guest was
presented with a beautiful little
pink Japanese fan as a souvenir of
this enjoyable occasion. The little
hostess was the recipient of many
beautiful little gifts.
