WE SHOULD BE HAPPY'
Christmas, the birthday of Jeses, our
King, will soon be here. , At this time
wf should be happy. Happy because
God sent his only son to us on Christ
mas, to die for the sins of the world,
and that our lives have been spared
another year, while some of our kind
red and friends who were with us last
ChiUtmas have passed over the river
of death, and are now rejoicing in tho
paradiseabove. Although it seems sad
for us to give up our dear ones, yet we
should not repine 'For God does all
things well," and he has transplanted
our dear ones to be jewels to brighten
the way for. us.
And should we' not be happy that we
have food and. clothing, and then why
should we not try to make other peo
ple happy on this the birthday of our
C. F. S.

We regset to learn that Friday, Dec.
22 will be the last day of our school
here for the' winter. Our school has
been taught this term by Mr William
Powell of the third district. Mr Pow
ell possesses all the qualities which go
to make a successful teacher. He has
made-many friends in and around Rug
by since he came here to teach our
school. Come again William.
We regret that we have to give up
another of our citizens but the death
angel came to the home of Mr S H
Giles and took away Mr Sol Giles. Jfrom
us. He left many friends to mourn his
departure, A good citizen has gone
from us. A voice we knew is still,
and there is a vacant place in his home
which never can be filled.
