makeup of his uncle, W. J. M. He is setting out 50 more fruit trees and 50 oses. Ervin is a prosperous young man and handles thousands of cedar posts and has a nice home well watered, and is a Sunday school superintendent and county committee man, Master of the Bend Lodge, A. F. & A. M., and last but not least, has a red-headed wife and two robust boys. One of his boys is of the shaving age, the other in a lower grade. Dick Jackson of San Saba is moving the windmill from the weak well on our new possession down to the river where the river will be divert ed from the inexhaustable supply, as we can't stay on a place without flowers in the yard and it takes water to keep them vigorous, and Dick says he will have one of the bes f . rigs on the river with plenty water and to spare. Dick can do this as easily as he did blow the base horn along with the writer in the once famous San Saba brass band. The Sunday school superintendent failed to show up last Sunday at Bend, and of course we are the Scotch and can play second fiddle so it moved on with a good attendance despite the weather. Chauncy White, the junior proprietor of River Bend, butchered his pig last week, and it weighed after it was cleaned 515 pounds. If any oi H. M. Taylor. Mr. Johnnie Cummings and Mr. Deaver Shaw were in San Saba Monday on business. Mi-. J. P. Shaw visited his wife, Mrs. Senero Shaw, who is teaching at Mobile last week. Rev. Hart held services at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon. Birthday Celebration H. R. Maxcey Jr. was honored with a birthday party Saturday night. The cake contained seventeen candles. We were very glad to have Miss Aneta Jariiar and Miss Maxine O'Neal as visitors. Everyone enjoyjed themselves. There were forty-four at Sunday school Sunday. The former Johnney Ruth Coffee visited her mother this week-end. Mrs. Eddie Harkey was a visitor here Sunday. the boys in his grade can beat this we want to hear of it. 15 gallons 01 pure lard, 50 pounds of sausage wert canned, so the Lord helps the unfortunate, and we are proud of our boy that he is interested in the agricultural industry as well as fruit growing and pecans. He goes to Sunday- school every Sunday, and should we see him strutting around in town with a Bull Durham tobacco tag hanging out of his shirt pocket we would hang a Mexico sisal rope on the other side. Shame on the smoking youth, and if it be a girl, don t mention it to us as it's a worse shame. I Locker Junior Reporter.
