Dear Editor: Will you reseve a
small space in your newsy little paper
until my letter 'finds a resting place.
Ill pron ise to be brief, as I can not be
otherwise, because there are but few
profitable and interesting enterprises
in this section at this time to tell the
Herald readers about. But we hope
to live in an awakening era, when ev
ery one may look forward to those
things that w'll make us a better peo
ple and afford us greater opportunities
than we now have.
Rev. A. P. Welch delivered two in
tere 'ing sermons at Rushing Springs
last Sunday and was heard by a large
number of people. '
You people near Foyil, Okla., I would
that I could be with you while you are
attending so many good singings and
going out to picnics. I enjoyed those
trips we took when I was there, two
years ago, especially the one we four
took across that lonesome hollow, hav
Bettie Andrews for our driver, if she
did drive over a stump and cause a
wreck. I am plann'ng to see youu all
again some day when you are least
expecting me. Am planning to begin
work in a few weeks at old Pond
Ridge, where so many of you Foyil
people used to be my schoolmates.
The spirits of so many who are gone
almost haunt mo there now. When I
recall to mind the many happy hours
of ch'ldhood and view the spots where
our playhouses were located, I recall
how long the teacher's face would look
when I would go bounding in, telling
her that some lHtle girl had torn up
our moss covered beds, tables and
chairs. I speak of myself telling on
others because I think there were no
others so bad to tell things as myself.
But Itry to think of the past as a
mere dream, because our final success
is coming in he future, and our lives
are just what we make them.

The names of sixteen brothers be
hind far enough to be dropped at the
end of the term were read to the lodge.
A brother who takes no interest in the
lodge and drags along just paying
enough o keep from being dropped, is
always too busy, sick or had company,
&c, to visit the lodge, and ready to
complain at dues being too high, &c.
In reality if a brother can't and dont
try to keep up with the procession, had
perhaps, b tter march. Such members
are of no advantage to the lodge. The
lodge offers great advantages to all
who keep in uine and no pecuniary
benefits to the brother in arrears. Ev
ery brother should take a pride In at
tending the lodge the first meeting in
the term and get the new S.A.P.W.,
which Is, or should be, given out at
the installation . A good many mem
bers of this lodge have died while
dragging or were suspended, and were
not entitled to any of the benefits. Our
memorial service shows a list of 26
brothers; who died in good standing,
and excepting two, were buried with
the honors of the order. Following Is
the list of deceased brothers:
