the coming session of the sel.ool.
At a former meeting Prof Strick

opening was drawing near it was
decided to elect another princi

Prof. Payne is well known in
this parish, he having been raised
near Montgomery. He has made
teaching a profession, and was
principal of the Georgetown

At this meeting of the Board
it was decided to raise some of
the salaries. The salary of the
first assistant was raised to #75
per month and the second, third
and fourth assistants to $50 per
month. At the former meeting
the board did not elect a fourth
assistant, but at Friday's meet

Small but Appreciative Audi
ence Greeted the Humorist.
Luther Manship, one of the
foremost humorists of the south,
entertained a Winnfield audience
last Friday night with a program
of humor, pathos and dialect.
He was here to supply a date
made by the lyceum bureau for
some time during last spring, but
the high waters all over the coun
try during the spring knocked
the lecturers out. They could
not reach their appointments, at
least two dates going blank be
cause the lecturer could not
reach us. The course was ar
ragned by Supt. Moss and Prof.
Dale and iconsisted of four at
tractions, all of which have now
been given ant were appreciated(
by those who attended.
The audience which greeted
Manship was small, but in be
ginning his program the lecturer
called attention to the fact that
on one occasion when Plato, the
Greek philosopher, stepped on
the platform to deliver a lecture
he was greeted by only one hearer,
and that one was his pupil, Aris
totle, who became greater than
Manship kept his audience
smiling very broadly most of the
time during his lecture, which

ICE FACTORY DEEP WELL
Has Been Finished and Affords

ice factory, has finished it up and

The contract for the ice factory
well called for 80,000 gallons of
water every twenty-four hours.
The well is now 686 feet deep
and, with the use of a pump,
affords about 65,000 gallons per
twenty-four hours. The water
is as fine as ever came out
pf the ground and has a tempera
ture bf 60 degrees, which is lower
than was expected. This will
furnish the factory plenty of
water and it will be run regularly.
Seventeen to Seven.
A game of base ball wasplayed
Sunday between a team of te
Wionfield boys and the Dodson
team. It was not a very exciting
game, the home beam being too
much for the Dodson boys. The
score resulted in 17 for-Winnfield
to 7 for Dodson, the home, boys
giving them seven runs to keep
them from feeling too blue.
The Genuine vs. Counterfeits.
The genuine is always better
than counterfeit, but the truth of
this statement is never more
forcibly realized or more
throughly appreciated than when
you compare the genuine De

A REVIVAL MEEaTING.
Rev. Griggs Holds Successful
One In "Mill Town."
Rev. J. M3. Griggs, pastor of
the M1. P. church at this place,,
has just closed a successful revi
val meeting in "mill town." %hi, hi
is in the southern portion of
Winnfield. The people of that
portion of town have been con
ducting open air services. for over
a year now in a hautiful grove
of pines and Rev. (;:i':i h:,
been preaching for them. This
summer they decided to hold a
revival and after buildling an
harbor. the revival opened up in
dead earnest. Every service was
well attended and much spiritual
good was done.
There were ten Accessions to
the church and if Rev. Griggs'
health had not failed him, the rt
vival would have continued a fGw
days longer, and it is probable
several others would have united
with the church. Those interest
ed in the revival say it was a
great victory and that satan got
severely set back. As soon as
they can rest up a little the re
vival is going to be resumed and
satan will get another jar. Rev
Griggs is doing good work among
the attendants at this revival.
