THE LOOM OF TIME
• Note: This poem, sent to us by Mrs.
Maude Pulliam, of the Woolen Mill,
was written by an unknown poet and
I aptly illustrates life as compared with
the patterns woven on looms.
Man’s life is .laid in the loom of time
To a pattern he does not see.
While the weavers work, and the
Till the dawn of eternity.
Some shuttles are filled with silver
And some with threads of gold.
While often but the darker hues
Are all that they may hold.
But the weaver watches with skillful
Each shuttle fly to and fro;
And sees the pattern so deftly wrought
As the loom moves sure and slow.
God surely planned the pattern:
Each thread, the dark and fair.
Is chosen by His master skill
And placed in the web with care.
He only knows its beauty.
And guides the shuttles which hold
The threads so unattractive.
As well as the threads of gold.
Not ’till each loom is silent.
And the shuttles cease to fly.
Shall God reveal the pattern
And explain the reason why.
The dark threads, were as needful
In the .weaver’s skillful. hand
As the threads of gold and silver
For the pattern which he planned.
Jacqueline Leigh Nolan, 15 months
old, first prize winner among girl babies
at the Rockingham County Fair, cer
tainly deserves the honor. The little
lady is thirty-one inches tall, v/eighs
twenty-six pounds and has never known
a day’s illness. Small wonder that Mr.
and Mrs. J. T. Nolan, the child’s par
ents, are proud of her. Mr. Nolan
works in the Accounting Dept., General
Office, and you should see his eyes light
up when he speaks of his fine little
Father Of Local

From Cumberland Mountain Sana
torium, Pleasant Hill, Tenn., comes a
letter from Alice Adshead, registered
nurse, who formerly worked for Mar
shall Field & Co., as a nurse at Draper.
Miss Adshead’s letter, addressed to J.
Frank Wilson, follows:
Cumberland Mountain Sanatorium
Pleasant Hill, Tenn.
Sept. 2, 1942
Mr. Frank Wilson,
In this hospital on the mountain,
blankets are precious- to us, but we
are returning this one to you because
we think it would be an object of in
terest to your people.
We bought it from you in 1922 when
the present hospital was built and it
has seen 20 years of hardest wear and
continuous use and, as. you see, it is
not done yet. Though frayed at the
edges it is still whole and still usable.
Could one ask more for a blanKet?
(Signed) ALICE, ADSHEAD, R.N.
Contrary to the general belief that
children dread the opening of school
the young folks in the Tri-Cities flock
ed eagerly to their schools when the
opening bell rang Tuesday morning.
Now-a-days few children dislike
school, for aside from class work there
is plenty to catch and hold the interest
of the student so that teachers and
pupils work in the perfect harmony
that goes so far towards making the
Tri-Cities schools among the best in
While there are quite a few new
teachers in our schools most of the old
teachers are back for another year.
Traffic Cop—Hey, you can’t make a
right turn here.
Traffic Cop—Because a right turp i-s
wrong here—the left turn is right—if
you want to turn right turn left and
then—aw, go ahead!
