Fortnightly Matinee Club.
Tupelo, Miss., Nov. 14, 1912. Dear Friend: Your letter to hand and I am delighted to note that no matter “How many miles, how many years, Divide our hearts ia pains and tears” you have not forgotten those good old days. Especially do I appreciate that portion of your letter inquiring as to the welfare of the F. M. C., of which you were so good and devoted a mem ber. Am sorry you do not receive the Journal regularly: it’s a mighty good paper, but as one of our mutual friends once said, “as hard to get as a genuine case of religion.” Rnt tn rocnma — TItp flnh ns you well know, is made up of busy housekeepers and mothers who scorn to neglect these du ties. They are congenial but not clannish, conservative and not critical, delighting I’m sure in all that makes for true culture. It is well officered this year—possi bly excepting the secretary who seems a little shy in adjectives, and have as a course of study “Our American Authors” with a sandwiching of “Current Top ics. ” I’m sending you a copy of the year book of which we are justly proud, thanks to our president, committee, and last, but not least, our printer. I now pen you a little sketch of our last meeting held at the home of Mrs. Geo. Francis No* vember 13th. You’ll remember that her entertainments were al ways a success—well she is the same efficient capable hostess. The day was somber enough to delight the darksome soul of Poe, but once within the hospitable walls the weather was forgotten. Misses Katie and Clara Topp served punch in the reception hall, after which we took our places in the parlor for the rou tine of business and program. The president, Mrs. Wright, being absent the vice-president, Mrs. Cunningham, took the chair and presided with ease and dig nity. Our author for discussion was Washington Irving—and don’t you remember we had a program on him in our first year book ? Of course you recall too, how proud ly we viewed that first year book. Mrs. Wright’s paper, “Irving in the Kaatskills” was read by Mrs. V. C. Kincannon. and she brought vividly to our minds those scenes which so haunted the author’s imagination. Mrs. McGaughy gave us the history of Joe Jefferson’s inimi table portrayal of Rip the lova ble vagabond. Mrs. Clayton read of “Rip’s Return” after his twenty year’s r.ap when he found not even a dog to greet him gladly. Mrs. Lilly favored us with a beauti ful vocal number. Last, Mrs. Allen gave a very able sketch of “Knickerbocker Tales” with selections from the book. After the close of the program we partook of a dainty salad course and discussed new hats, suits and other things dear to the mind feminine. Mrs. Savage, of Okolona, and Mrs. Miller, of Shannon, were guests of the afternoon and ex pressed themselves as delighted with our meeting We will be with Mrs. V. C Kincannon next, on the afternoon of November 27th, when wre have another Irving program. Well I bid you good bye, do not forget us for you know “Old days are dearest, Old friends are truest.’’ XXX Restless Activity. A preacher says that heaven is a place of restless activity.

The following letter is taken from the Lexington, Ky., Herald of November the 4th. The writ er was judge of the entire agri cultural exhibit at Meridian and awarded the prizes to Lee coun ty. Following is Mr. Karsner’s letter: Lexington, Ky., Nov. 2, Editor Blue Grass Farmer Edi tion, Lexington Herald. Dear Sir: —I am writing this in hopes I mav enthuse your Ken tucky boys in the Corn Club. At the Mississippi-Alabama fair, at Meridian, Miss., the Boy’s Corn Club of Lee County, Miss., had over 100 entries of ten ears each, besides quite a lot of single ear entries. Now I want to say it was real good corn, mostly of small varieties, but sound and good. i will guarantee inai we wron i| have that many from the whole: State of Kentucky at our next! State Corn Show in January. Why can't the Blue Grass boys get a move on themselves and have a big list of entries. It is not the fault of our worthy coun ty superintendent, Mrs. Faulcon sr, as she certainly has done her best. I will tell you where the fault lies i$ our people. They don’t take any interest. Why take for instance, the Lee County, Mississippi Corn Club. The bank ers of that county put up $200 in premiums, and the merchants that much money. This makes it interesting, as every boy will get a nice sum of money for his work. Our bankers have been asked to co-operate with us several times, but no one has ever heard of them helping the Boy’s Corn Club, still they want their fath er’s banking business. Our mer chants have all responded when asked to contribute to the Corn Club, and why not the bankers. The bankers of Pulaski County, Kentucky, made the Corn Club a success. So it will have to be if we want one in Fayette County. There is no reason why Ken tucky should not carry off the prize this year on corn at the next National Corn Show, if our people will all pull together. Yours trulv. Geo. D. Karsner. Mutual Culture Club. Mrs. M. H. Moore was the, hostess of the Mutual Culture Club Friday, November 15th. The meeting was opened by the president, Mrs. Hall, after which the minutes of the last meeting were read. Responses at roil call were quotations from your favorite author. Mrs. Spight was the capable leader of the afternoon. The review of the Bay View studies for the afternoon, Colom bia and Colombia’s checkered history were discussed in a very interesting and instructive man ner by the Club. Mrs. R 0. Perkins gave a well rendered sketch of the history of organized womanhood. Mrs. McDonald in a most attractive way read Bryant’s Death of the Flowers. At the conclusion of the pr< - gram the hostess served a dainty salad course. After the social meeting a short business session was held. Mrs. F. Johnson stated that she had been appointed chairman of a committee to dispose of a thous if? ♦ U /x D rt/4 l Vi unit vxi n i Clll'l IMV A V V • V.'l WUO vm IUU1UIU Seals which she has received, and the Club voted to help dispose of them. Mrs. W. McDonald was elected second vice president, the vacan cy in this office was caused by the loss of one of our most wor thy and capable members, Mrs. Brooks Marmon. The business for the afternoon finished the Club adjourned. Mrs. D. E. Turner, Rec. Sec. « - Grand Jury November, 1912, Term Circuit Court W. E. Blackwell, foreman, John Anglin, T. J.
