The election for issuing bonds to
the amount of $4,000 for school
purposes which will be held on
July 14 is occupying the center of
the stage at the present and is the i
subject of much discussion. A
great many of the patrons and
voters have lined up on the side
of the issue while many are op
posed to burdening the taxpay
ers to a greater extent. Still
others are hanging on the top
rail of the fence, undecided,
waiting to be convinced of the
proper attitude to take in the
matter. The campaign for or
against the bond issue promises
to be warm and it would be ex
tremely difficult to make predict
ions of its triumph or defeat at
this early date.
A small conflagration which
came near destroying the beau
tiful home of Mr. Jno. R. Lackey,
on Summit Ave., occurred Satur
day afternoon. The fire which
is supposed to have had its orig
in from a match was discovered
in a closet on the upper floor and
had gained considerable headway
before the alarm was given.
Great excitement prevailed and
in a remarkably short time a
large number of citizens were on
the scene and the blaze was
quickly extinguished before any
considerable damage was done to
Farmers in this vicinity are
working early and late harvest

for several years. Other crops
are looking unusually thrifty and
if conclusions are to be drawn
from present indications a boun
tiful harvest and general good
times are in store for the ag
gressive tillers of the soil. The
merchants and business men here
are elated over the bright pros

earning his livelihood by selling i
postcards and souvenirs. He is \

trip must be made on foot and
his sustenance is to be gained
solely from the sale of the few

quite an invalid the young fellow
is making an average of 22 miles

Rev. A. L. McClendon, of
