wagons were kept busy during the
day hauling dinners to those who had
been given cards, but were unable to
attend cn account of sickness or in
firmities. At the cicse of the meal all
that was left was distributed among
the three schools represented.
The poor people of this city are very
grateful to Mr. Polston for the gener

from time to time, and for the Christ
mas dinners he gives every year.
This is the first time the poor among
the Negroes have been included in his
gift. It is believed that the fraternal

this spirit, aid that next Christmas
