local note: "A perfect little gem of

The ceiling has been oiled and .varn

builder and It does credit to his skill."
Speaking of the value of advertis

'Two weeks ago Mr . Oppelt, our
foreman, found a gold pen and case, at
Seranton, and advertised for the
owner in the Star. He received this

that the notice had fceen seen, and de

THE STORY OF MY
TRiP TO CHICAGO.
By Eva Flurry of Vestry.
On Friday morning, November 26,
I started from my home, for Chlcago,4
Illinois. I Went by Vancleave and at
tended our West Jackson County Fair,
and saw the splendid exhibit that was
brought from' various sections of the
county, From there, I went, to Pasca
goula, where I spent the remainder of
the day. At 9 o'cloek that night, I left
for Mobile, reaching there about 10: 16.
Here I spent the night at the Battle
Saturday morinng, I left Mobile at
8 o'clock, for Artesia. At State Line,
Miss., a club girl and boy, and county
agent joined me We reached Artesia
at 4 o'clock that evening.- Here - a
special Pullman was taken for the
Club Girls and Boys. The rest of our
crowd got on here, making a total ot
forty. It did not take us buta few
minutes to become acquainted, for we
never meet a stranger in the Club
work, and before long, everyone, was
talking, laughing and having a merry
time. Our chaperons brought our
supper and breakfast with them from
the college, and we ate supper as we
were passing through Tupelo, Miss.
We did not talk so long after supper
for we wanted to go to bed earlyand
get a good night's rest.
Sunday morning, we got up about
6:30 and we ate breakfast as we were
going through Red Bud, Mo. We
reached St. Louis about 9:30 that
morning. Hhere we changed trains
and left about 9:35 for Chicago. In
going Into the city of St. Louis, we
went through a. tunnel that was under
the business section of the city.' In
leaving the city, we passed over this
same tunnel. Just after we left St.
Louis, we passed through a small
coal mining town. We went through
several good farming sections, on our
way up there. We passed through
the states of Mississippi, Tennessee,
Kentucky, Missouri and Illinois. We
arrived in Chicago about 5:30 Sunday
evening. We went to the Atlantic
Hotel. We did not go anywhere that
night, because we were too tired, and
wanted to get plenty of rest for the
On Monday, we got up at 6 o'clock,
had breakfast, then we went to the Y.
M. C. A. Hotel. Here, we met Club
Girls and Boys from othen states.
Dakota, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa,
Tennessee, Kansas, and Arkansas.
Here each Club boy and girl received
a souvenir walking cane. Then we
got on an elevated street car and went
to the International Live Stock yards.
All of the state delegations marched,
one after the other to the entrance of
the stock yards. The Armours Girl
Band played for us, and afer having
yells and songs from all the states, we
entered the building where the grain
was exhibited. Here we met a num
ber of the members of the U. S. De--partment
Af Agriculture. After going
through the grain department, we
spent the remainder of the day look
ing at the live stock. 'e saw the
various breeds of cattle, horse's, sheep
and hogs. We also saw the ex
hibitions of Sears Roebuck & Co. and
Montgomery Ward & Co.
After supper, we went to the grand
stand and saw a great horse Bhow.
Some of the things we saw were, horse
parade, Shetland ponies to buggy,
horse racing to buggy, saddle horse
racing, cavalry and artillery horses,
pony racing, sheep dog . exhibition,
racing for chairs and cattle parade.
We went back to our hotel about 10:30
On Tuesday morning, we all met at
the Y. M. C. A. Hotel and went from
there to Armour Packing Plant. We
went through the slaughter pen, and
on through different sections of the
plant, then heard a' lecture on the In
spection of meat. Later we saw a
demonstration on cutting meat. We
had luncheon in Armour's Restaurant.
imira some Inter
esting talks from some of the prom
inent members of the U. S. Department
of Agriculture. We then visited the
Armour Soap Factory. We were so
tired after seeing so many interesting
things we decided to go to the hotel
instead of going to the entertainment
Wednesday was Wilson Day. After
assembling at the Y. M. C. A. we went
to the Chicago Board of Trade, and
Stock Exchange, and saw how the
grain is bought and sold, and how
the price of grain Is decided.
Next, we visited the Boston Store
Observatory. - From this e'oi-rvatory
we could see a large portion ot the
city, and It was very interesting to
watch the traffic on the strees below
ua, In leaving hi place, we walked
through the business section of the
city, and then jaj went to partake of
the Annual ClurjT)inner that was gtvea
by Mr. Thomas E. Wilson. At dinner.
. Wilson had the youngest Club boy
on one side r'aio and th
not only dainty souvenirs that were
given them there, but each- one had a
warm feeling, in, their heart, (or the
man who Is so interested In their
work, and who had furnished them
such a pleasant day." We went to our
hotel, and after .having supp
went fo the Princess theatre,
we saw a very interesting drai
. Thursday, we went to
Cormlck Works of the fnterm
Harvester Company. Wefpent the
.morning, in looking over the different
factories and various sections of ihelr
plant. Then' we had luncheon. At
our plates, we found some pretty little
souvenirs. After enjoying a very de
licious dinner, we heard talks from
some of the leading men of the pflfct.
Thursday afternoon, we visited
Sears Roebuck ft Co. , Some of us
were disappointed- here, ..when we
didn't get to .gee any of their mer
chandise, nevertheless we enjoyed
seeing their splendid system of man
agement, In this great firm. rom
nere, we went 10 me rouiuy snow.
We saw various breeds of chickens,
turkeys, ducks, rabbits and guinea
pigs. Then we went back to the hotel
Friday was our last day in the city
and of course' our pleasure was tinged
with sadness when we thought of say
ing goodbye to each other, but still
it was one of our most Interesting
days in the city. That morning, we
went out to Lincoln Park to the Zoo.
It was very . amusing to see the
the various animals of the world,
some of them being familiar, while
others were perfect strangers to us.
Some of the animals we saw were;
polar, grizzly, brown and black bears,
wolf, Eskimo dog, fox, buffalo, bison,
sacred ox, elk, deer, zebra, kangaroo,
zebu, lion, elephant, tiger, puma,
let pard, monkey, chimpanzee, snakes,
and all kinds of birds. After visiting
different portions of the park we
went back to the hotel. Here we rest
ed awhile and then went to Marshall
Feild's Store. We had luncheon there
and then spent the eveniqaMn shop
ping and . looking over thebre. It
was late when we left here, and went
back to the Atlantic, then we bade
adieu to the city where we had such
a pleasant time.
, We all went to the station together,
but there the crowd was seperated, a
part going hy way of the I. C. and the
other part of us going on the M. ft O..
W left Chicago about 8 o'clock Fri-
ted as soon as we got on
Saturday morining we changed
trains at Jackson, Tenn. Wt got our
breakfast here. We left there about
9 o'clock and reached Meridian, Kiss.,
at 7:15 that night. There were oily
seven of us who spent the nigh jn
Meridian. Next morning, four ot us
started at 3:30 for Mobile. The three
delegates from Green county got off at
State Line, leaving me alone for the
rest of the journey. I reached Mobile
about 8:30. My county agent met me
there. We spent the day in walking
over the town until our train left there
about 2:00 o'clock for Pascagoula. We
got there at 3:16. I spent Sunday
night with my aunt, that lives there.
Monday evening, I came out home,
getting here about 6:00 o'clock.
This is only a brief sketch of my
trip to Chicago, for it would be im
possible for me to tell all that I saw
while on this wonderful trip. It has
been worth far more to me than six
months attendance of a good school.
For there is nothing more educational
We girls and boys brought back
with, ub not only souvenirs and pleas
ant memories of our great trip to
Chicago, but with our hearts full of
gratitude and appreciation for the
great and noble men of Mississippi,
who made It possible for us to take
this wonderful trip.
We have better opportunities than
any other girls and boys of the world,
and we should make the most of these
opportunities. So let us .strive to do
better work than we "have ever rtmie
