SOLDIER BOY OF HOPE WILL BE BLIND FOR LIFE Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Kersting re ceived a letter last week from their son, Louis, stating that he expected to receive a furlough in the near fu ture and come home for a time. He is in the hospital for blind soldiers at Baltimore, where he recently was given his final examination with the hope of having the sight of one eyo restored but this hope is now gone. He will however, receive at the hands of the government, an education which will euabid him to earn a living in his present condition. One eye is gone entirely, but he states that there wifl be no scars. His letters contain great praise for the many things done for him by the Red Cross. He also asks his family and friends, not for sympathy in his present condition, but for kindly cheer and encouragement, his lot is a hard one and will be harder unless he is able to keep up his moral-.!. Sympathy will not help him but a word of hope and cheer will brighten his way and bring to his lhind the sunshine that will never again please his eyes.

SCHOOL NOTES Mrs. English and her wonderful, work has been the talk of the school and the community during the past week. Although wo all expected some thing good when we were advised of Mrs. English's coming, we hardly dared guess how line she really was. Not only will her talks be long re membered by the whole community, but it is certain that her work will leave an impression on every man, woman, and child that heard her thai will not soon be forgotten. Mrs. English began her series of talks on Friday afternoon at the. school house, where she talked before a largo audience of children and par ents. Throughout her talk, and dur ing the excellent music provided by her daughter. Miss Dorothy, a pin could have been heard drop—all were so attentive. She has a message to deliver and she surely does deliver it. The next meeting was on Friday ev ening at the school house. This meet ing was for women and girls only. Many mothers and girls have ex pressed their sincere appreciation for this wonderful talk. it is certain that the few who were not present lost a rare opportunity lo learn facts which are the very key stones of any nation's welfare. The third talk was given in the •opfl'iiausr to men and bovs ni'lv, The hall was filled to capacity. .Mrs. English spoke plainly and fearlessly —-but she spoke as the surgeon who cuts deeply to cure, and every man who was present felt honored to be permitted to come up and shake, the hand of this wonderful woman who has the courage and the ability to pull aside the curtain and to flash the light into men's souls. On Sunday night Mrs. English spoke before a packed house of men, women, and children. Her subjcct was "The Life Beautiful". What a wonderful world it would be to live in, if we could but live up to the message she brought us. But though we may not be able to make our life as beautiful as she showed us it, might be, there is no question but that every one will bo the belter for having heard her. Mrs. English gave her final talk on "Life Behind the Bars" on Monday night. The house was again filled with an aud ience of eager listeners, and we laughed and cried, down in the inside of us, at the many amusing and pit iful things that she told us. It is im possible to try and retell the things Mrs. English tells, for it can't be done without robbing them of the true value which she knows so well how to give them, for Mrs. English is one out of a million who has the ability and the tact to present the facts she does present in the proper way. Mrs. English has been a wonderful sucess at Hope and she will be a wonderful success wherever she may go. Miss Dorothy English is a talent ed whistler and flutist, and together with the singing and reading of her mother furnishes a splendid begin ning for the wonderful talks which follow. They are doing a difficult and noble work, and doing it well. Miss White is still on the sick list, but is reported as recovering from the flu and we hope that she will soon be able to return to her duties in her former health. Warm lunches are being served in the Central building each afternoon. Parents are asked to urge their child ren that stay in school to avail them selves of the opportunity to have something warm to eat. The cost is nominal. The fourth game of basket ball played by the boys high school team resulted in a fourth victory for the local boys.
