Nettleton, Miss , Sept. 26 — The Nettleton public schools are entering upon their fourth week of the session for 1916-17. Although there has been quite an exodus of families from this neighborhood, still the enroll ment is much better than was expected. The enrollment for the session of 1915-16 in the high school was 53- Already the num ber in the high school is 56 and were distributed through the 8th, , 9th, 10th and 11th grades. We have ten prospective graduates and one post graduate student. The high school is fortunate in securing the services of Mr. W. M. Reed, of Houlka, an “Ole Miss" graduate, as first assist ant. who, in addition to teaching English, history and science, is devoting his spare time to the coaching of the boys in football. As for the faculty in general, A 1 . . .. __V._ * rtc uau z>ay mat caui mciiiuci. is enthusiastic in her work. The spirit of co-operation in the fac ulty and student body forecasts for Nettleton schools a most promising session. Prof. E. F. Puckett, our most -worthy principal, is to be com mended for his splendid work also. It is an interesting fact that of 44 graduates in 12 years, 16 of these have either gone into the teaching profession or have taught for one or more years; >one is a banker, four are farm ers, one a prescription clerk, 14 are students this year, two are bookkeepers, six have married, nine have graduated from other schools, two are dead. Another fact of interest is that the number who are attending college is now on the increase: 1913- 14 furnished_0 students 1914- 15 “ 2 1915 16 “ 8 1916-17 has_8 pros pects or more.

She had been sick 5£ weeks and early in the morn ing of Sept. 18, 1916, she peace fully passed into the great be yond. She had always been a bright and healthy child and her parents anticipated a bright fu ture for their little girl. We shall miss her voice so dear and sweet, As she crawled and prattled from morn till night, But we bow our heads in humble sub mission, For we know in all things our Lord doeth right. Sweet little baby! Going home so soon, When all was bright and fair, You have missed temptation, sin and strife And the heartaches poor mortals ' wear. | By faith we’ll work and trust and wait ! Till we, too, enter the golden gate. I No fear of separation, no toil, No tears, no need of prayer, But perfect peace pure rapture gives, And there sweet little Mary Lou lives. < Basking forever in the^ sunlight of ' God’s love, A bud transplanted to the realms above. After tender and loving words af sympathy were tendered by Rev. Thomas, of Amory, the lit tle body was laid away in Union cemetery and the little mound covered with beautiful flowers and ferns.
