! 1 fort 5yiTBBiii VOL. 2--NO 21. FORT SUMNER, (Sunnyside Post office). GUADALUPE COUNTY, N. M., DCEEMBER 4, 1909. $1 A YEAR, CAS H. he Church Started. Rev. Willis Smith, of Melrose, arrived Friday with Dr. John R. Gass and has assumed charge qf the new Union Church building. The committee, consisting of D. J. McCanne, R. C. Nisbet. Dr. VV. R. Lovelace, C. C. Henry and Dr. Smith met at the First Nat ional Bank, approved the plans and accepted lots 1, 2 and 3 in Black 4 from the Fort Sumner Townsite Co. The committee is desirous of building of solid concrete but this mrtter is still to be settled. In architectural beauty the edifice will be unsurpassed by anything in eastern New Mexico. The plans have been so drawn that the building can be addeü to and beautified as the town grows, thus dividing the exper.se be tween our our present population and future comers. The location selected met with a slight opposition but in view of the rapid development' of the eastern half of the Sunnyside townsite the selection is beyond a doubt the wisest possible. Dr. Gass now holds forth the bright hope that the Presbyter ian Synod in New York City will swell the local fund by $1,000. In contributing th3 bit of pleas ant news Dr. Gass remarked thai "this proposition keeps growing on me, Fort Sumner's future looks brighter than ever." Dr. Smith who has the work in charge made a brilliant suc cess when he built the church at Melrose and the local congrega tion is fortunate in securing his .services. Band Dance Tuesday. Another one by the band boys ar.d a bigger and better one than the last is the promise for next Tuesday. This is the second of toe regular first and third Tues day dances that are being held by the Fort Sumner Cornet Band. The dance will be held at Harris Hall and the admission will be fifty cents, ladies free. The first of these dances was so thorough lp enjoyed by all that a large attendance is predicted for next Tuesday evening. No refresh ments will be served but it is understood that Mrs, Philion will serve lunches after the dance at the Fort Sumner Restaurant. The best string music is assured and the floor is being put in ex cellent condition. Teacher's Convention. The Guadalupe County Teach er's Association went into ses sion Friday evening, September 26th, at Harris Hall, with an at tendance larger than was expec ted. Practically every school district in the county was repre sented.. The Territorial Superin tendent, J. E. Clark, was present during the early part of the convention, but left Saturday moring to attend a rimilar gath ering at Portales. Owing to the absence of a few oí the leading members of the association, the original program was discarded and a new one subsituted. The program as car ried out proved both enjoyable and profitable to the townspeople as well as the teachers. The conveation ended with the close of the exercises on Satur , day afternoon, but a reception and dance was held in the even ting and most of the visiting teachers remained over until Sunday. Just received a car load of corn, chovs ajrd bvun at iftunketahiii,. Territorial Lands.
