The Youngest Speller In our last week's issue we made mention that the Colum bia High School had the young est boy speller in the parish, up to the time we published our pa per, and we still claimed for our little 8 year old Alton Yarbor ough that he was the youngest speller until Tuesday's mail brought the following letter from Prof. W. W. Brashears, principal of the Clarks School, which shows that they have a seven year old boy who will no doubt make the Clarks school proud of possessing the young est boy speller in the parish. Following is the letter we receiv ed Tuesday from the principal of the Clarks school: 4lditor Caldwell Wat0lrn;a . I notice in your last week's paper that the youngest person reported as making 100 per cent in the spelling test was the Yar borough boy of Columbia. In our school we have the follow ing report to make which I think is still better: Chester Greene, boy,age 7 years Jan., 22, 1915. Huddle Fergu son, boy, 8 years, Aug. 15. 1914. Doyne Buffington, girl, 8 years Sept. 21, 1914. Lina Richman, girl, 8 years Aug. 20, 1914. Beat rice Skirvin, 8 years July 30, 1914. All making 100 per cent. All these pupils are in the third grade. I will appreciate it if you will make proper men tion of this fact in your paper for this week. Thanking'you for your kind ness, I am Yours very truly, W. W. BRASHEARS Youngest Contestant Editor Watchman: As there seem to be consider able rivalry as to who will Carry off the honors of youngest con testant, in the Parish, in the spelling contest, we desire to en ter Edna Cody, 8 years old last November, who made 100 per cent at the Riverton school.

ADVERliSE Columbia 1, Grayson 0 I Last Saturday afternoon mark TI e ed the opening game of base in ball in Columbia for this season. The Grayson team came up and >n crossed bats with the Columbia ar er Advertisers, on the Columbia I grounds. The weather was threatening and the rain that d rs morning put the grounds in bad L, conditions, making it hard for la both teams to handle the little th m round ball, and to stand up on TI id the slipery grounds. In spite of E t. the bad weather a large crowd tf ventured out to witness the game and was full of enthusiasm and rooting for their choice to th in wear the crown of victory, which fell to the honor of the Colum- a bia Advertisers to carry the ban k ner with a shut out game to their id credit. The score was, Colum :k bia 1, Grayson 0. ill Both teams were strong and 'd played good, clean ball. Mc- Ti Ginnis was in the box for our ty home boys and pitched a no hit F 1o game, while Davis did the re 3 ceiving act and proved a good in er back stop. Thompson perform- e, a- ed for the visitors and held the p( Advertisers down to only three p hits. Throughout the game he th pitched good ball. Murphey was the visitors back stop and deliv re ered the goods. Both batteries n- demonstrated they had been se " there before as well as the in to 'p and outfielders of both teams. m a- The visitors are a cleaver a ur bunch of boys and it is a pleas- at r- ure for the Columbia Advertis- n` ers to combat for honors with as fil Lil cleaver a set of gentlemen as the er visitors proved themselves to be. C ', The referee of the game, C. C. )1, Bridger, Jr., filled his position D a well and did the best he had in lo him which was satisfactory to both teams. c h The second game between w these two teams will be played 2, iv to-morrow (Saturday) afternoon at the Columbia ball park. Came will be called at 8:sO p. m. A good game is assured the pub lie. it Spelling Contest r [n Following is a list of names of v. the pupils of the Palestine !
