THE CHANDLER NEWS, FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 1900.
I am about to supply "a long-
felt want," as editors say when
starting a paper in a new town
"out west"of fifteen inhabitants.
The want I am going to supply
is your readers with some good
reading mat ter.... Last week I
made a trip southwest and was
much gratified to see the im-
provements made by the farmers.
Mr. Picket has a line eight-room
house with evergreens in front
and flowers in the bay-windows.
A little further was John Dur's
place with equally as fine sur-
roundings. I regret that I don't
know the names of other persons
who have tine improvements....
In many places cotton bales were
piled up. At one place I counted
four bales, and in lhe lields and
barn yards were fine stock—fat
horses and good blooded cattle
hogs. East of here Brown's mill,
improved farm with a neat house
and well-kept farm, stocked with
cattle, sheep and hogs, bespeaks
the man of thrift and energy.
Next are the Parness brothers
with their great herd ol' horses,
to the south is Mr. Mayett in his
big white house, and his heart, |
though not so large as his house, ;
is large enough to make all visit-!
ors welcome. His hearthstone |
is very wide and his latch-string !
is ahvays out. Next on the same
road is Keller George, with his
new wife and newer baby .... liy
the way, Mrs. Picket has lately
presented Picket with anew boy.
1 was there \he other day and
was introduced to the stranger.
I advised them to name him Mc-
Kinley, but am afraid they won't
do it, but might weight the boy
down with some demo-pop name;
too bad, isn't it? J. L S.
Work has begun and is pro-
gressing nicely on Friendship
church.. . .Rev. Farrar has pur-
chased a farm south of Carney
and will move soon.... Mrs. Har-
ris, teacher at Grand Center,
dismissed school last Friday to
.attend the Rag Bee.. . .Mrs. Wil-
liams' sister, of Kansas, who has
been visiting the past few weeks,
started for home last Monday...
Mr. and Mrs. Bleal and Mr. and
Mrs. Ed Sanders paid Mr. and
Mrs. A. R. Seamen, who reside
south of Mitchell, a visit last
Sunday .... Mesdames Farrar,
Naylor, and Jerjuson gave Mrs.
G. H. Crume a day's quilting one
day last week .... Albert Hunt
and family have returned from
Kansas, where had been on a
visit... .A mad dog is reported
to have passed through the coun-
try near Wise's gin last week,
creating quite a little excitement
.... Mrs. Paul Carpenter gave a
* Rag Bee to her lady friends Fri-
day,,Jan. 12. A large number
attended. W. H. C.
