Beaton Sunday School. nil Mrs. Nora Matlock Arnwine. After an illness of about eleven months, the summons came to Mrs. Nora Matlock Arn wine, Friday August 7th, 1914. She was born October 13th 1883 i near Benton, Polk county, Tenn. She was the daughter of Mr.and Mrs. A. H. Matlock, her father having preceeded her to the great beyond, while her mother survives her. She professed faith in Christ in her girlhood days, united with the Ocoee Baptist church of this place and lived a consistent mem ber until the day of her death. She was married to Mr. D. A. Arnwine and to this union were borti two daughters, one. having departed this life at an early age, while Annie Lee yet re mains, with her father, leaving the family equally divided be tween heaven and earth. Sister Arnwine was a great character, a kind and devoted wife and mother; kind and con siderate to her aged mother and to all who knew her; and I can not refrain from saving she was liberal in words of kindness and support to me as her pastor. The only drop of sweeassjin knowledge that with hef'all is peace. She is gone, but her influence will continue to live in the memorv of those who! knew and loved her. May the Lord enable us to say "Thy will be done." "Sister, thou was't inild and lovely Gentle as the summer breeze; Pleasant as the air of evening When it floats among the trees. We humbly bow our hearts to the will of Him who doeth all things well, feeling thatour loss is her eternal gain. W. H. Rymer, For years her Pastor. One of the finest gifts God gives to His church and His kingdom today is a rich, strong, Christ-like character. Such was the gift bestowed on M rs. D. A. Arnwine, who lately went to her heavenly reward after a life of singular purity and usefulness and Christian service. As one who cherishes her memory with deepest affection and gratitude, takes pleasure in saying that Mrs. Arnwine was a character of lofty Christian devotion, un usual spirituality, combined with a force and magnetism which ! made her marked in any circle in which she moved. As a mother and wife, friend and church member, her record is absolutely unimpeachable. That unique thing which we call personality marked her in eminent degree, and made every thing she sMd and did unusually impressive and winning. No one knew her but to love her, and no one ever came under her influence that did not bear the permanent impress that she left upon him. Kindness, gentleness, gener osity, sympathy, loyalty, pa tience,' faithfulness, unfailing good hnmor, acceptance of the best in others these and many other gracious qualities made her a striking and exceptional character. Her little daughter and husband have a heritage which is above all price in the memory of the grace and devo tion and consecrated ministry ol this Godly mother and wife whose every word and deed should be cherished in everlast ing memory. Her Christian faith which had been evident all dur ing her life, shown with unusual clearness in her last days, with the vision of the heavenly world in view, firmly trusting in the grace of that Divine Redeemer whom sher had sought to serve for. ten years of her useful life. We like to think of her now in the glad reunion and fellowship of the heavenly World, where 6he has' found again those whom she had "loved and lost for a while." J. E.

From the 1839 list of teachers we learh that Samuel Dugan re ceipted WiH. Higgins for $45 for a school taught for the term of three months. There were no free terms in 1840 nor 1841, but the new county of Polk started them up in 1842. Sirius Dougherty, father of the D. O. Dougherty of Atlanta who married Harriet Smith's daughter, Lizzie, entered the north-west quarter of section 4, township 1, but sold his rights to the Rachel Bible who moved into the Indian cabia on top of the old peach orchard knoll and in front of the Summy residence about a hundred yards. Later the Bible boys built the house on a littleat. down the .large knoll south of this, and their house iiti.ll stands, being used 'as a barn by Mr. M oore house.' ; ' From where the new pike forks! along the Summy Jane west wards barelv on the south side of the lane. After crossing a hirge gully near an old log house on "the right was the pioneer u . u .,u n, schoo house, north of the lane. An old log siaoie is norm oi is school house sit number 2. In front sf it is a foot-thick walnut. Soon the pike turns due west passing twenty feet north of Beaver Toter's cabin site on the nearl! orchard knoll top, then about 100 yards further on the same side is the box house site, number 4, between a poplar and I a hickory, with the Summy res-, Js true there wju st remain idence northward across the ' piety of Wood for the Cook, in pike and only about fifty steps thg preparati0n of Woody Cook away. Nearly square acress , ies the branch, slightly down stream . .- about 75 yards was site number j The voice of the people is tha 3, where the same logs used in : voice of God. numbers 1 and two were finally sold for wood by John F. Clem-j mer, school com'r. This house . (I remember as a small boy) had i the door on the east side, chim- ; ney at south end and had slab j benches, also some plank ones, i Its site is now the south side of the rock quarry and is being shot up for the crusher across the branch, beside the pike. The pike goes on westward, slanting across the branch and up the steep south bank, then turns toward the Reynolds ford and bridge soon to be built, fol lowing iu the vicinity of the treaty mail route which led through the Cherokee nation from Tellico to New Orleans. The present Summy school house, number 5, is far up the hill southward, a landmark for miles around. In 1843 Ananias Higgins was paid $16, and recently Mrs. Min erva Ferguson, who was a daughter of John S. Oncal, told me that Annanias Higgins was the first teacher .at Summy whom she went to school to and that she went to two others there, one of them being Wm. Hughtjs, the one who was sheriff during the 50's. Some of the patrons of Summy .school lived in township 1; and in the early school days of John F. Clemmer who was born in 1840, the school house was torn down, moved across the township line and westwardly about 150 yards, and v there rebuilt. From 1865 to' 1830 a log house just w est of the branch and of the section Hue was used. About then a box house was built east of the sec tion line and fifty feet or so from the branch on the north side, beiug in front southward from the Solomon Summy resi dence then occupied by W. M. Clemmer. About 1890 A. B. Nicholson was teaching in this box house and, having some business away y' asked me to go to the scho'-ump for him. So there I kept cVRl1"p I my first day.
