Carratelle School Exercises- Tbe farmers, at lead the most o them, are about ready to commence planting, and the turpentine operat ors are making big preparations to ward gathering tbe pure or raw gum from the trees. I looked anxiously for last week's issue hoping that someone bad men tioned the natural talent which was manifested at Carrabelle school bouse on Friday night 18th inst Tbe school is being taught by Miss Delia Martin, daughter of Mr. V C. Martin. Tbe object of tbe en. tertalnment was a laudable one, to obtain funds to purchase more good books for their circulating library which is quite small at present. Too much praise cannot be given the pu pils for tbe manner in which they acquitted themseUes, and their pa. rents should feel proud of them, for I feel satisfied that every one pres ent was completely satisfied and went borne boasting of what a good time they bad; If all the communities in our county bad as earnest, energetic, pains-taking and devoted teacher as Miss Delia it would not be long ur. til the libraries in our school bouses would be lull of good interesting books for tbe pupils to read, instead o' their running after some trashy dime novel or detective work in which there is no good. Taking in to consideration the ages of the pu pil and the short time in making preprations.tbe voice of the audience is that it cannot be excelled, and bope tbat Miss Delia and little tots will give us another one in the near future.
