ABJOBIE was the nr3t girl
every boy called on when
he got home for the
Christmas holidays. Yes,
every boy who had gone
away .to school or to col
lege always came to Mar
jorle's house first when
the Christmas holidays be
gan, though there were
exceptions, of course.
Many pf them, coming home at the
same time, on the same train, would
agree to call together.
Then they would have a good time,
singing, talking, laughing. Marjorie
was such a good sort. The whole
"bunch" liked her.
She played the piano well for danc
ing and had the kind of voice which
made others want to gather around
the piano and Join .In the chorus.
In truth, without Marjorie the
bunch would have been oftentimes
very lonely, very restless and wretched.
Marjorie danced well, too, and if one
wanted a girl to come up to a prom or
a class dance Marjorie would always

she was a Jolly good companion.
So it went on. And another Christ
mastime came along and Marjorie's
house was the center of the gayety.
It was the night before Christmas.
The "bunch' were taking around their
Christmas presents. They were going
to call on Marjorie last because then
they would stay there for a while.
They all had presents for Marjorie,
typical presents from members of a
"bunch" to a friend of the "bunch."
There were several boxes of candy
(which the "bunch" would help eat),
and there were some books, which . per
haps some of the. "bunch" later would
borrow and read.
One of the "bunch" has gone to Mar

as especially the patron saint of chll-

foe; and hefe the town people made
mm a constable. When lee s scouts
approached Gettysburg in June, 1863,
John Burns went out with a party of
volunteers to fight them, but the
party was turned back by the Union
cavalry. Finally, into the town, on
june 20, came General Early and his
Confederate troops; and here was
John BuTnSf &s constable, in the mid-
the street, ordering them off in
of the law! The Confed-
erates locked him up for asserting his
authority in opposition to that of
their provost guards. But they went
on to York, and out came Burns and

MEETING OF WOMAN'S CLUB
After the committee reports and a
pretty violin solo, a , medley of the
familiar airs by Miss Lyndal Math
ews, the feature of the afternoon was
the reports of Mrs. H. C. Dozier and
Mrs. C. R. Tydings, delegates to the
late state federation meeting at Talla
hassee. In a delightfall informal
but most interesting manner, Mrs.
Tydings gave ai verbal report . of the
convention. Perhaps of most interest
to Ocalans was her description of a
talk by Dr. McClane, formerly one of
our fellow townsmen, telling of the
marvelous improvemnts in the reform
school since he has been in charge.
There are about 400 boy3 in his cus
today, some as young as eight years
old. The youngest of these he hopes,
to , place in good homes, as it seems
criminal for such tiny tots to be plac
ed in this institution. All the shoes
worn by the boys are made in a tan
nery on the place. All the boys are
required to work one day and go to"
school the next, alternately. There is
a . dairy, farming and many other
useful occupations. The -hospital is
being built by the boys themselves.
They are accustomed to bathing regu
larly and have clean beds to sleep in.
There is an orchestra and many other
forms of profitable enjoyment. Dur-
ing the time that Dr. McClane has
been there only five , boys have run
away and three of them were negroes.
While in Tallahassee Mrs. Tydings
cften saw Dr. and Mrs. Bunvan Stenh-
ens, who wished to be remembered to
all of tlisir ncak.fri. TT ic in

was there that all the meetings of the
ieaeration were held, lie and his wile
are both very popular and like Talla-
hassee' very much, but they still think
tnat there is no place in the world
Mrs. Tydings gave as the outstand-
S subjects of the convention, educa-
tion, thrift and Americanization, and
she was very much impressed with
disnlaved in-the modish "creations."
Afr. TiMi' ttt An xrith th
social courtesies extended the officers,
delegates and visitors of the federa-
tion. She told of the opening recep-
tion, the delightful drive over the
Clty of hills, a beautiful tea given by
Mrs. Catts at the executive mansion
and many other pleasures enjoyed.
otn ladies urged every member oi
the club to attend if possible the next
meeting of the federation, to be held
the coming year in Gainesville.
