Lat Saturday night our quiet and
peaceful little village experienced
quite a little sensation when two of
tbe Texas rough-riders, so to 'speak
came in on the night train from
Jennings station and proceeded to
paint the town red as they termed
it. There was a show here that

the tent to fall. Not satisfied with
this they cut several horses loose

miles son' h of 1 .ee.
To say it was a grand success
scarcely gives those people justice.
Mr Woudall is a professional tencber
of thirty-four years experience, lie
has taught in a number of statef, but
for tbe past te eral years has teen
in Madison and adjoining counties.
Prof. Woodalls had in this school
about torty pupils and to day he
put them through a" most rigid ex
amination. They were classed in
some six or eight grades. Tbe small
ones of course were given the easy
work while Ve large, or advanced
pupils, were assigned to the most
difficult problems tbe professor
could give. A large blackboard on
one side of tbe church house had
lieen arranged for the occasion. In

The Only Way to Cure Pork.
First, salt pork with plain salt
by rubbing on and spreading out,

lbs., brown sugar 2 lbs., salt
petre 2 ounces, red pepper 1 ounce
to 100 lbs. of pork; rub and

killing is done while weather is
cool, say frosty, meat may not
be stored for four to five days
after butchering, but if warm it
should be stored within 12 hours.
Do not cut off chin bone,, as this
ruins the ham, and in storage
they cure as well with chin
Time to be stored: Thirty days
