The following letter' has been

an inquiry about Benton C. Smith
going over the County telling

Mr. A. E. Garrett,
Dear Mr. GarreH,
I do not recall eyer to bare
heard of Mr. Benton C. Smith.
Neither be nor any other man baa
any authority from me to make
any auch statements, as you aay be
ia making to the teachers. I have
never even given any written re"
commendation to any agent of any
booka to be aold to teachera, be
cause I want to avoid the possi
bility of using my name to induce
teachers to buy their books. From
what you write, this man ia evi
dently a fraud and is perpetrating
a fraud upon the teachera; and I
would invite you to investigate the
matter and help me ttt expose it.
I suggest also that you call this
matter to the attention of the
County Su|>erintendent at once.

The Round Dozen Club was de
lightfully entertained by Miss
Patty Leary Friday evening Feb
ruary 5th, at a Valetine party.
After the guests had arrived, in
order that they might become bet
ter acquainted, half hearts were
presented to them and the young
men were requested to find the
other half of their heart. Then
Mr. Herbert Copeland announced
that the nest feature would be a
Heart Auction. Hearts with des
cription in rhyme of the young
ladies were read. The young men
were to bid in minutes for the des
cription of their choice, thus the
one who took the bid was allowed
the privilege of talking to the
young lady the number of minuter
which he bid. After each young
man had found his lady conver
sation reigned supreme until they
were interrupted by the hostess
with a request that they all repair
to the Library to clip their for
tunes which they found on sus
pended lines in tiu.v red cbeescloth
bags with a spoonful of some
grocery and attach to each the
appropriate rhyme, after they had
finished finding <and exclaiming
over their fate, tbey were request
ed to read them aloud. Then
hearts with keys cut from the
center, were given to the ladies
and the keys to the men who were
told to find the heart which his

ly decorated for the occasion. De
lightful refreshments were served
consisting of a salad course fol
lowed by ice cream with red
hearts moulded in it. While the
cream was being served, tiny ar
rows to which a small red heart
had been attached were passed to
the guests aud each requested to
write his or her name upon it and
then thrust their arrows in the
cake. Next it was cut by Miss
Mc Donal amid much excitement.
Mr. Lloyd Parker whose arrow
was nearest the ring was proclaim
ed to be the next to wed, and Miss
Margaret Sessoms getting the
thimble was destined to be the old
maid, but this unfortunate fate
was set aside by the proposal from
two gallant young men. The
gudsts returned to the parlor and
the remainder of the evening was
spent in enjoying vocal and instru
mental music furnished by Mrs.
J. N. Vann, Misses McDonal and
