NEWS OF MEADOWS
AN APRIL-FOOL BOX PARTY
For Saturday Night April I—Proceeds1 —Pro-
ceeds to Be Used to Build a Porch
to the School House—Personal
Meadows, March 21. —The
Meadows School is going to give
an April-fool box party on Sat
urday night, April Ist, for the
purpose of building a porch to
the school house. Every body
is cordially invited and it is
hoped that every body will get
in early as they have a nice pro
gram arranged and will begin
immediately after dark. As soon
as the entertainment, which will
last about a half hour, is over,
the boxes will be sold. Fine
music will be furnished by the
Meadows String Band. The
boxes will be sold in three lots;
small girls first, Misses next and
ladies last. A gold dollar is
going to be placed in one of the
ladies' boxes, fifty cents in one
of the Misses and twenty-five
cents in one of the small girls'
boxes for an April-fool trick. So
every fellow that buys a box is
standing a chance to get his
money back besides eating a fine
supper with a fair lady. The
money will be put in the boxes
after they are carried to the
school house, so it is hoped that
all girls not living in the district
will bring boxes and be in early
so they will stand a chance to
have their box contain a piece of!
the money. Everybody is request- j
ed to have their name written i
plainly on the outside of their ;
box to save trouble of untieing
boxes to find the owner.
There will be preaching at
Bethel Baptist church on Sun-1
day, April 2nd, at 3 o'clock P. M.
and at night.

croup. "Sometimes in severe
attacks," he wrote "we were
afraid they would die, but since
we proved what a certain remedy
Dr. King's New Discovery is,
we have no fear. We rely on it
for croup and for coughs, colds
or any throat or lung trouble."

ACCIDENT ON THE TURNPIKE
A Shoe Drummer Experiences Trib
ulations Six Miles Northwest of
According to news which
reaches here over the grapevine
telegraph, everybody in the
Vade Mecum and Moore's Springs
country is wearing new shoes.
Last Friday the wreck of a shoe
drummer's conveyance occurred
on one of the vicious public roads
of that section, and foot-wear
was scattered for a distance of
several miles in indiscriminate
profusion. Fortunately, the
drummer, who was Mr. J. E.
Moore of Patrick Springs, Va.,
agent for W. H. Miles Shoe Co.,
managed to escape with his life,
and reached Danbury looking
like 30 cents. Mr. Moore's de
scription of his experience, when
stripped of its explosive ver- !
biage, is quite interesting. The !
wagon was caught in a rut, and
went crosswise down the moun- '
tain so hard that it rebounded
clear to the top of another hill, j
which doubtless prevented anni- j
hilation. But for Mr. Moore's j
splendid physique he must have ,
been badly bruised up.
The horses and driver were
saved by falling on him. The
impact of the colliding forces
alarmed the neighborhood. John
Rierson thought it was a seis
One curious feature of the af
fair was that when Mr. Moore
reached Danbury, he found sev

which shows that in any capac
